I live in ancient times. The traditions hold and memory lives. The ways you follow, will never change what was and is. Foundations may be built upon many times, and that which is built may have nothing at all to do with the foundations upon which it rests, but the foundations, remain, solid, eternal, ancient and unyielding. Honor to the Earth, to the Dance of Eternity in all its many forms. Always will come before the illusions of man. So it has been told, and written, and given. So shall it always be.
It is the choices we make that matter. JKR in her writing recognized this, but it has always been this way. Farther than you can imagine, someone, stood upon a mountain and gazed forth upon the earth. Human? no, not yet, not quite yet. But they are ancestors, and they matter. We, are not the chosen, for there are no chosen. It is our choices that make the world we live our lives in. If you are unhappy with that world, then, make different choices. Choose to be responsible, in everything.
