Week 02: The First Oath

I stand before the Three Kindred
and declare myself to be a seeker of the Old Ways
of The Shining Ones, The Spirits, and The Mighty Dead.

With this oath I begin my Druid’s Journey
and I vow to do do my best in body, mind, and spirit.

I will strive to cultivate and keep Virtue in my life;
To live in accord with the Xartus (Cosmos),
and to think and act in ways that honor the Kindred and myself.

I will strive to cultivate and keep Piety in my life;
To always remember the Kindred,
and to nourish and strengthen my relationship with them.

I will strive to cultivate and keep Study in my life;
To grow in wisdom, experience, and expression every day
while coming closer into alignment with
The Shining Ones, The Spirits, and The Mighty Dead
And The Land, The Sea, and The Sky.

These things I vow to the Kindred and to myself
ever in the presence of the Shining Ones;
May my journey be blessed and my fire be good.
So Be It!
