please do checkout this very interesting interview by my friend Rune @nordic.animism with Professor of “Fire” Stephen J Pyne. I came across Pyne’s books a few years ago and have a few of his books and was fascinated about the way he talks about fire and the history of fire and the age of fire (the pyrocene) he approaches fire from a more scholarly/scientific angle rather than my more esoteric angle - so I find some of his writing a bit heavy going and tend to flick through to pick up key bits of info BUT backs up some of my own views and research and there is no one who has documented fire like Pyne - and I’ll adopt Pyne’s phrase of being a pyroromantic
And thanks to Rune for mentioning me a few times 😍
As I like to say “we are forged from fire” - without Fire we wouldn't be here! I shall most likely do a post or even YouTube ramble on the pyrocene (a term dubbed by Stephen J Pyne) at some point from my angle on it - fire has become mechanised ; industrialised and internalised and hidden from view but we are still very much dependent on it. I like Pyne’s analogy that we are cooking (everything) on fire including the planet.
I respect and honour fire through my own practice and approach - and for me my own sacred approach to fire is very important - we can not continue to cook the planet - and to change that our connection to fire must change on a deeper level is what I believe - tho I know I shall never get many - any!? (I know I do have a few😀) - followers in my approach 😀 🔥🙏 (I can’t see me ever becoming a fire cult - one may dream 🤣)
Fire is in our DNA. We are forged from fire🔥🙏respect it; honour it; without it we wouldn’t be here - it is tied into the very fabric of life
