 isten now to the words of Draoi, the speech of dreams, the magic of seeking, the workof making. In ancient days the Old People knew secrets of the worlds, secrets kept by the Wise - by the poets and the priests, by the binders of spells and the tellers of tales- in short, by those wizards called the Druids. The Druids kept the religion of the people, using their memory, vision and skill to help householders make the sacrifices, keeping the balance between humankind and the Otherworld.Yet the work of Draiocht is also the work of using spiritual Power to work one’swill in the world. Far from being a mere servant of the Gods, the Druid knows the power  inherent in the human soul. The powers that the Gods used in the first days to shape the worlds are still present, still available to sentient beings, still potent to make theworlds in the image of the will. These powers are the underlying secrets of the structureof the world, which the sorcerer must learn.You who would know the sorcerer’s art must be a diligent seeker into the hiddenways of the world. To work magic is to know how to apply proper forces in proper ways, so that a subtle working might produce a great effect. The Celtic sorcerer learns to use the power of her own divine spirit, learns to harness the secret abilities of natural  things, and gains the aid of powerful spirits. With all these things gathered, the sorcerer  has his power around him, and is, in his small way, like to the Gods and Spirits. Those who would undertake to make themselves Powers in the world, remember  that even the Gods dwell within the Great Song of Fate. Every deed of every beingshifts the Web of the Worlds, and not even the Shining Ones can know every outcome.So whenever magic is worked, the sorcerer must use all her wisdom, all her discernment.Foolishness is no more likely to win reward in magic than in war or in business.So let the sorcerer remember virtue. Seek Vision, and Honor and Diligence, beWise, and Strong, and know the Pleasure of the world. Keep the Old Ways, let Courage conquer fear, and have the Open Hand of friendship for the world. In magic, as in farming or poetry, these virtues will bring in a good reward.
