Iolo Morganwg was known in his own day as ‘The Bard of Liberty’. There were very good reasons for this, and I want to explore some of those reasons because they will help us to understand why he and his system are so important to us today.
During the past few weeks of confinement, I’ve been engaging in quite a lot of divination, using both the I Ching and the Coelbren y Beirdd. I’ve been receiving a number of repeating patterns in the answers. Wait. Do not act now. The time is not right. This is a time of danger, of stasis; a time when one cycle has come to an end but the next cycle is not yet ready to commence. This is a time to rexamine, and re-commit to, one’s values.
Much of this relates to my personal situation, and the course of my own life. However, as the days pass, and the news gets grimmer, I understand that it applies to all of us, and to the society we have been living in.
