“In the West we have been taught an individualistic stance which means that we 'own' ideas, a concept which would be foreign to our ancestors. Many of us who write, paint, compose and invent will have had the experience of beginning to dream a new idea or creation and being woken up in the night to receive what seems like astral dictation. The great bards and skalds of our ancestors did not believe that they owned the poems and sagas which came to them from dream and vision. They were seen as being sent by the Gods.”
