The Unique Qualities of the Irish Celts

I recently came across my notes from my viewing a DVD series on the Celts. I noticed another more recent DVD series on the Celts. You may want to check them out. I know the first one was fascinating and chances are the second one is as well. The Irish Celts had a remarkable bent towards beauty. Even everyday domestic items were created to be brilliantly beautiful.

The Irish Celts had a philosophy of freedom and determination to be real people. This contrasted with the Romans who were very orderly. The Irish Celts understood and loved their land. They had a sense of freedom and adventure that says all the world is not all black and white. The world is full of possibility. Unique is how the Irish Celts thought. Opposing facts can be equally right and a conclusion can be arrived at by any number of directions. I remember seeing this typified even in signs to an Irish village. The signs pointed in opposite directions to the same village. When you change the way you look at things you change your life.

The Irish warriors had the attitudes of champions. They approached trials and their path of life with humor, style and panache. It determined their success. Edwin, the hero of "Evansing - Heart of the Irish Kingdom" demonstrated these qualities in the trials and battles that he encountered.
