The Divine Triad

What we in the Fellowship of Isis believe in, is the ethical reality of the Goddess Faith. We have a Triad of centres which embody the 3 primal Ethics listed in the Manifesto - Love, Beauty and Truth. These are shown forth through the Priesthood, The Druid Clan of Dana, and the Order of Tara. Every member receives inspiration from the Goddess. So how Love, Beauty and Truth are expressed through the Fellowship of Isis depends on Divine Communion expressed in the lives of individuals. I have drawn up my list - which varies with my flow of inspiration! Each of our members may produce their own list.

We welcome the global expansion via the Web, but we always need to remember our basic ideals!

The Priesthood: Divine Communion. Goodness. Compassion for all that is.

Druidry: Spiritual Vision. Creativity. Sacred Arts & Sciences.

Protections: Integrity. Courage. Service for the Divine Purpose.

The Fellowship of Isis honours the Divine Triad.

Rebirth. The Coming Awakening

Reflections by: Olivia Robertson
Samhain 2009

Awakening comes unpredictably, when it chooses! Hours of meditation, prolonged exercises, repetitions, affirmations, may lead nowhere, save for confused breathing and muscular aches… My own experiences have always come unexpectedly, with no stimulants. I have noticed there are various levels in enhanced consciousness.

There is the happy “Summerland” adventure! I see tapestry on our walls shake and the pictures become real. I go to the garden and it is in another wider space and time – luminous – strangely coloured – and each blade of grass, every daisy – each weed is an emblem of some greater reality. Our world is a picture book of a greater sphere of being.

I have a feeling that I am out-growing such sweetness and bliss – this harmony with every person and creature. The change is a sudden influx of mind and spirit. Here I am aware of evil – but this is part of a whole web of life that has a meaning. I once saw why a boat was capsized in the ocean, with everyone on board drowned. It was not an accident. There was a connecting link between destiny and each person. In this state of mind there are no accidents. All has purpose. Evil is but the unreal shadow of the real, created for us to grow as individuals – not just obedient spirits.
