The Tale of Danu: Part 2

October 22, 2015 at 8:41 am 3 comments

Meanwhile in the Otherworld…during the early Revival Druid era…

Morrigan on phone: Damnit, Goibhniu! This is not about human ingenuity. I know you and the InterPantheonic Council of Smith Gods are all about human creativity and not interfering with it. Well this isn’t creation…these discoveries will lead to destruction, yes I know I’m usually into that sort of thing, but this is too much, even for me! The Manhattan Project will…Yes, I know it’s decades from now, but you know about the time differences between our world and theirs. Stand up to Hephaistos and worse, Prometheus and tell them we mean business! If you don’t, I will make sure Ireland stays out of that war!…Slams down phone.

Cosmic switch board worker: “My lady?”

Morrigan, sighs and leans back “Yes?”

“We’re getting a lot of calls for a goddess by the name of Danu, Danann, is it? Doesn’t that sound similar to one of your titles?

Morrigan looks at switchboard “Great balls of Dagda!” Those are a lot of calls! I think this is yet another error by those monks. Once, again we have to clean up their messes. I’m already taking calls for “Black Annis” seriously beneath my dignity…alright, give me some of them, and some to Brighid. I know she’s busy, lil’ Miss Jill of all Trades, she is (though somehow a lot less show-offy about it than Lugh!) but maybe she can get some of her little saint buddies to help out. Maybe even bodhisattvas…she’s also on good terms with Guan Yin.

So, regardless of origins, somebody out there may be answering your prayers to Danu…we’re just not sure who!

    That last part is how I think prayer works for Elen of the Ways, a modern deity that apparently exists but we don’t know who she is. Someone is listening but who?
    And a lot of people try to prove she is an ancient deity, same effort for Danu.

    I’m not sure if this happened on this blog because I have memory problems but in case it did, I left a comment criticizing a post you reblogged, if this was here I want to apologize if I was rude in any way, the situation was leaving me very emotional. I hope I wasn’t unpolite.

      Re: comment on the removed post. No, you were just expressing your opinion, I realize the topic of abuse is very messy and decided to remove the post, so your comment went along with it. I wanted to make sure I was not spreading any misleading or harmful information.

      Yes, I’m less familiar with Brythonic/British traditions, but it would seem there are several legendary or historical individuals with a name like Elen, and in a modern context folks have been putting together spiritual experiences/insights so it’s possible she has either evolved into a goddess or is a new goddess with inspiration from older bits and pieces. Good article about her here-
      Pretty much with anything Celtic, you have to go with your gut instincts a lot of times- the answer to so many questions is “we don’t know”!
