Dryu Spirits

 

Dryu Tree Spirits

Paradising and Terraforming, are two concepts that should be added to our vocabulary.

We have created quite a few problems to our environment and should repair.

5G technical excuse to cut down trees, is the latest attempt to carry on "sacrifice to the expense of the living".

If trees are the problem, then, why shouldn't concrete buildings be considered as a threat to microwaves? 

Has all this to do with perpetual sacrifice, intoxication, destruction and ablation of nature carried out by a minority?

Is the Empire still cutting down trees? Woods, where the home to Pagan tribes, Celts, and Druids. We must not forget that A dryad

(/ˈdr.ćd/; Greek: Δρυάδες, sing.: Δρυάς) is a tree nymph or tree spirit in Greek mythology.

Drys signifies "oak" in Greek, and dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, but the term has come to be used

for all tree nymphs in general, or all human-tree hybrids. They were normally considered to be very shy creatures except around

 the goddess Artemis, who was known to be a friend to most nymphs. Dryu, so is a spirit, and if a manifestation is present,ů

there you shall find its conterpat in the spiritual realms. This is the reason for which you should not act against any living form.

Respect nature and condiser actions before damaging anything, because your body does not end where your skin does,

as you were told by those who claim to be the totality of understanding, owning and dictating laws made to create servants

 rather than to serve the living. A paradigm shift is required. Action, and due consideration. Plant every seed you find. Take care of

of the environment. Fix things. Dryads, like all nymphs, were supernaturally long-lived and tied to their homes,

but some were a step beyond most nymphs. These were the hamadryads who were an integral part of their trees,

such that if the tree died, the hamadryad associated with it died as well. For these reasons, dryads and the Greek gods

 punished any mortals who harmed trees without first propitiating the tree-nymphs. Some of the individual dryads

or hamadryads are:

Energized Sacred Tree

 

Kodama (木霊, 木魂 or 木魅) are spirits in Japanese folklore that inhabit trees, similar to the dryads of Greek mythology.

The term is also used to denote a tree in which a kodama supposedly resides. The phenomenon known as yamabiko,

when sounds make a delayed echoing effect in mountains and valleys, is sometimes attributed to this kind of spirit,

and may also be referred to as "kodama". These spirits are considered to nimbly bustle about mountains at will.

A kodama's outer appearance is very much like an ordinary tree, but if one attempts to cut it down,

one would become cursed etc., and it is thus considered to have some kind of mysterious supernatural power.

The knowledge of those trees that have kodama living in them is passed down by the elderly of that area over successive

 generations and they are protected, and it is also said that trees that have a kodama living in them are of certain species.

There is also a theory that when old trees are cut, blood could come forth from them. Kodama is also seen as something that

can be understood as mountain gods, and a tree god from the old Kojiki, Kukunochi no Kami, has been interpreted as a kodama,

and in the Heian period dictionary, the Wamyō Ruijushō, there is a statement on tree gods under the Japanese name "Kodama" (古多万).

In The Tale of Genji, there are statements such as "is it an oni, a god (kami), a fox (kitsune), or a tree spirit (kodama)"

and "the oni of a kodama," and thus, it can be seen that kodama are seen to be close to yōkai. They are said to take on the appearance

of atmospheric ghost lights, of beasts, and of humans, and there is also a story where a kodama who, in order to meet a human

it fell in love with, took on the appearance of a human itself. In Aogashima in the Izu Islands, shrines are created at the base of large

sugi trees in the mountains and are worshipped to under the name "kidama-sama" and "kodama-sama," and thus the vestiges of belief

in tree spirits can be seen. Also, in the village of Mitsune on Hachijō-jima, whenever a tree is cut, there was a tradition that one must

 offer a festival to the tree's spirit "kidama-sama." On Okinawa, tree spirits are called "kiinushii," and whenever a tree is cut down,

one would first pray to kiinushii and then cut it. Also, when there is an echoing noise of what sounds like a fallen tree at the dead of night,

even though there are no actual fallen trees, it is said to be the anguishing voice of kiinushii, and it is said that in times like these,

 the tree would then wither several days later. In modern times, cutting down a tree which houses a kodama is thought to bring misfortune,

 and such trees are often marked with shimenawa rope.

THE MELIAI (Meliae) were the Oread-nymphs of mountain ash-tree, born of Gaia (Gaea, the Earth) when she was impregnated

by the blood of the castrated Ouranos (Uranus, the Sky). They were the wives of the Silver Race of Man and mothers of the Bronze, the third

generation of mankind. They nursed their sons on the honey-sap (Greek meli) of the ash, and armed them with spears crafted from the wood of their

trees (Greek melia). The Bronze were an overly warlike race who incurred the wrath of Zeus and were destroyed in the floods of the Great Deluge.

The Meliai were probably the same as the honey-nymph (meliai) nurses of the god Zeus--Ida and Adrasteia. The manna (meli) of the ash and the

honey (meli) of bees were both thought to be ambrosial foods rained down from the stars of heaven.

 

In Hesiod's Theogony the Meliai were born alongside the Erinyes avengers of the castrated Ouranos--and the Gigantes.

The latter appear to be the Kouretes (Curetes), the male guardians of the infant Zeus.

As children born of Heaven's castration, it is appropriate that the Meliai and their brothers would have some role to play in the downfall of the

perpetrator Kronos (Cronus). The Meliai were also probably identified with the Hekaterides and Kabeirides (Cabeirides), sister-wives of

the Kouretes, Daktyloi and Kabeiroi.

 

Meliae

According to Hesiod, the Meliae (probably meaning all tree-nymphs) were born from the drops of blood that fell on Gaia [Earth]

when Cronus castrated Uranus. In Hesiod's Works and Days, the ash trees, perhaps meaning the Melian nymphs, are said to have been

the progenitors of the generation of men belonging to Hesiod's Bronze Age. The Meliae were nurses of the infant Zeus in the Cretan Dikti

mountains, according to the 3rd century BC poet Callimachus, Hymn to Zeus, where they fed him on the milk of the goat Amalthea

and honey. Callimachus appears to make the Theban nymph Melia, who was, by Apollo, the mother of Tenerus and Ismenus,

one of the "earth-born" Meliae. Elsewhere, however, this Melia is an Oceanid, one of the many daughters of Oceanus and Tethys.

 

Epimelides

The Maliades, Meliades or Epimelides were nymphs of apple and other fruit trees and the protectors of sheep.

The Greek word melas—from which their name derives—means both apple and sheep. Hesperides, the guardians of the golden

apples were regarded as these type of dryad.

 

Hamadryad

Dryads, like all nymphs, were supernaturally long-lived and tied to their homes, but some were a step beyond most nymphs.

These were the hamadryads who were an integral part of their trees, such that if the tree died, the hamadryad associated with it

died as well. For these reasons, dryads and the Greek gods punished any mortals who harmed trees without first propitiating

the tree-nymphs. (associated with Oak trees).

 

Meliai

The dryads of south Asia were called the Dryad. The ash-tree sisters tended the infant Zeus in Rhea's Cretan cave. Gaea gave birth to

the Meliae after being made fertile by the blood of castrated Uranus. The Epimeliad were nymphs associated with apple trees,

and the Caryatids were associated with walnut trees.

In The White Goddess, Graves proposed a hypothetical Gallic tree goddess, Druantia, who has become somewhat popular

with contemporary Neopagans. Druantia is an archetype of the eternal mother as seen in the evergreen boughs.

Her name is believed to be derived from the Celtic word for oak trees, *drus or *deru. She is known as "Queen of the Druids".

She is a goddess of fertility for both plants & humans, ruling over sexual activities & passion. She also rules protection of trees,

knowledge, creativity.

 Pagan was originally a term used to describe people who practiced non-Christian religions. The term, which had a derogatory connotation, was assigned by early Christians. As Christianity was spreading in its early days in Europe, there were still many people who maintained their polytheistic beliefs. Those people were subject to the pejorative term, which served as a form of social pressure to convert to Christianity, and identified targets for discrimination. However, since the 21st century, certain people of non-Christian faiths, primarily those that adopted a form of spirituality, began to use the term to describe themselves. Paganism is now a religion of its own. But early pagans are credited with laying the foundation for the Easter as we know it today, and thus, some people consider it a pagan Easter.

Where Did the Name Easter Come From?

 Easter most likely takes its name from the names of goddesses associated with spring, vernal equinox and renewal. Eostre was the Saxon mother goddess, the source of all things and the bringer of new life. Around the same time, Teutonic tribes worshiped the dawn goddess Ostara, who also represented fertility and rebirth.

 Other pagan cults and deities played a part in the formation of Easter, too. Around 200 BCE, the mystery cult of the goddess Cybele was popular in Rome and its surrounding areas. Cybele, another goddess of renewal and spring, had a lover named Attis, who was born of a virgin, and died and was reborn every spring. The legend of Attis’ birth is also associated with other deities including Dionysius, Tammuz and Osiris – and, scholars believe, with the life and death of Jesus.

 As Christianity rose to prominence alongside those pagan beliefs, elements of the celebrations of Eostre, Ostara, Attis and other deities became inextricably intertwined with the Christian narrative of Jesus’ death and resurrection. The rabbit, symbol of fertility and agility, was sacred to Ostara. Eggs, chickens, green grass and sweets speak to the ancient celebration of new life and rebirth during warm spring days. Many ancient pagan cultures exchanged eggs as a celebration of the changing season into spring and blessing of fertility. Surprises stand for new borns, but as nature does not do something only once or twice, but propagates its waves accross the entire multiverse, so, the cycle or reincarnation called  samsara took place. This one is continuous and neverending.

 Various faiths that nowadays we can recognize as non original, are infact forms of cultural plagiarism, and simply based upon the interpolation of a few elements, a different perspective and subsequent elaborations. A plot often used to  legitimate actions in the name of "The One", that only have to do with the interest of a minority, proving the evidence that egOs only work for themselves. A "Melange", is in no way a concept of unity, but a formula that is based on partiality. This dualism, being the cause of detachment itself from the true law of Love that unites everything. Monolatries, so, are a consequence of separation rather than unification. They shall show no interest in Harmony and Equilibrium, Correct Conduct and good examples.  You shall find Prejudice there, great walls to protect material wealth, hierarchy, social status, and all the missing books they have used to rebuild for  themselves new bodies of thought, that are still immanent Koshas, and have nothing to do with the eternal. 

Dharma only requires consciousness, awareness and respect. You know if You are doing wrong or not showing respect. You do not need to ask someone else. Interference, abuse and selfishness, are the consequence of a predatory attitude based upon the wish to own and control what might be considered as a property by using power to dictate. Stay within, avoid greed. This does not follow nature's path, and nature shall take back what it gave. The idea of Anthropomorphic Selfish Gods that own everything instead of sharing creation, never fall in love, and hate so much the living to kill them all if they do not follow their law, is a curse. Love and compassion is needed to embrace. Pity, fear and punishment, only grant those who are not able to make themselves understood the advantage of a perfect illusion that does not serve life, but their needs.

This is the justice of the "sword and scale". Maat terms would be "heart and feather", placed upon the scale, where love, enables the soul to reach the light, if its weight is lighter than a feather. Those who have made their heart a stone are in fact living in obscurity. It is the Ego, ultimately, that makese the Gods fight one against the other, killing themselves in neverending sacred crusades. Such perishable gods truly miss the concept of unity, sinergy, sharing and serving, and soon find themselves amongst Egregore, Religo and Commandements. Anyhow, You shall not see them around, because they send men to fight their own wars and once they taste blood, they shan't be love no more.

 

In the faith of love act truly.
