|In the al Celtic legends Yggdrasil was the tree that jined up airth and
heavin and stoppit the sky fae fa'in on wir heeds. In them days they didnae hae
psychiatrists but they did hae druidic witchdoctors. They didnae hae universities as such
and thir wasnae ony exams tae pass - yi becam a witchdoctor because o the kinda places yir
heed had been. The wye they telt the story, the witchdoctors had sat in a nest in
Yggdrasil far the 'Gods' had telt them aboot fit happens in 'the beyond'. So it wisnae
jist a case o 'kennin aboot' the idea o heavin on airth, they hid experienced it. That's
mair than can be said aboot maist Church o Scotland Meenisters these days.
||In Celtic legend Yggdrasil was the tree which prevented the sky from
falling on our heads. In those ancient times there were no universities producing
psychiatrists. Witchdoctors were recognised as such because of what they had experienced
internally. Tradition had it that they inhabited a nest in the sacred tree while God
explained about the beyond. In those days those who spoke about the divine had experience
of it - can the same be said today?
