    No better way to Celebrate Imbolc than to Read the Next Chapter of this Book and Write a Review about it.

    The next Chapter is called Warriorship and starts off with Dru getting a letter from the Abbot of the Cisterian Order requiring him to Sign A Document affirming his Departure from their Order. This shows once again how Dogmatic, Selfish and Unforgiving the Monotheistic Religions are.

    He then is invited back to the Netherlands to do Organize Meditation Session in and about the Countryside and eventually gets a Job editing a Magazine.

    I am not sure why he called this Chapter 'Warriorship' as the rest of the Chapter goes on about Forgiveness and various way that the Tree Word 'Dru' is used in various Cultures about Europe.

    The next Chapter 'Drala' deals with a few Buddhist Spiritual Concepts called 'Drala' and 'Terma' and that Drala is the 'Enemy Above' and that Buddhist that deal in such Concepts are called 'Tertons'.* It also goes into an Order that the Author created that is a Community that deals in such issues.

    Terma seems to defined as the Spiritual Essences that are Buried within Sacred Objects such as Earth, Water and Fire.* However, Sacred Element of Air is Not Mentioned.and the Tertons are the ones who Decipher the Meanings of such things.

    However, Dru states that there is only One Way to regard the Spiritual Materialism.* I disagree with that as there is always more than one way for one to regard such Spiritualities.* As one way to Perceive Spiritualism may be Good for One Person, there might be another way that may be Different but works fine for another Individual.

    This is the Last Chapter of the Book but is followed by an Epilogue.

    And the Epilogue goes on about how nice it is to have Fulfillment as it goes along like a Flowing River and I took it to mean that one has best Enlightenment when one is a Solitary.

    For the most part, I see this Book shows how disenchantment with the Monastery when they put 'Dru' into a Sanitarium to some Frivolous Reason and then prompted him to find something else that is more Fulfilling and then finds it with Celtic Buddhism and then recounts the amount of Negative Peer Pressure and Antisocial Behaviors he had to endure while finding his way into Celtic Buddhism.

    I found that he is walking the similar Path as another Druid Network Member who left the English Church to find his place in Celtic Culture and it is to 'Dru' that I introduced that TDN Member.

    I hope 'Dru' finds similar Fulfillment as that TDN Member has.
