A Step on the Odinic Path

Altar to Freyr/Ingwaz/Ingui

People generally choose God(s) (in various forms and names) to devote themselves to based on the qualities and traits they are said to possess.

The traits are usually representative of a larger archetype that the devotee wants to portray and has the qualities that they want to possess.

Once the person discovers these qualities that suit him/her best, it will determine who they identity with in a divine, mythological or spiritual way.

It should be practical and work with their lifestyle, ultimately inspiring them to want to excel in the areas they want to in life.

Once they find those qualities, principals and truths that fit their chemistry, then they should devote themselves , or rather “sacrifice” themselves to themselves.

This is the Odian path…

Using Thurisaz as a Weapon Against Depression

Thunder storm on Summer Solstice.
Allegany, New York 2021

Depression is a hell of a drug.

Sometimes it hits you like a freight train and other times it faintly lingers around like the smell of a cigarette.

In these moments when we feel ourselves slipping off of the righteous path and into apathetic dreariness, we must acknowledge the negative patterns within our thinking and refuse to give energy to the turbulence created by them. Instead of trying to think your way out of these situations (which always inevitably allows the situation to develop into more stagnant, philosophical loathing), try and act yourself willingly and directly into a more positive mindset.

Invoke and meditate on the mighty Thurisaz () to banish all weak and self deprecating thoughts from your mind, then let this fiery power grow within you and forcefully push the mental fetters away. You can even attempt to crush them then and there.

When you feel the power of this internal Hammer/Thunder build up inside of you then you can directly propel yourself into motion and attack your days goals without any fetters weighing on your soul. By simply acting and not thinking, you will be able to to drag the mind out of the mud and get the wheels rolling again. This can be symbolized by the ancient chariot, with the horse representing the power of the Will and the rider representing the mind; which can only be as “thunderous” and powerful as the horse which drives it.

This indicates a separate function and metaphysical difference of mind and Will, but this is for another time…

In summary, don’t sit there and think. Just act. Retrospectively use moments of depression creatively and actively. Learn to enjoy the opportunity and challenge they present and transmute () these times into moments of personal growth. As you overcome depressive patterns (one step at a time) you will begin to heal and mend the negative habits that have formed over many years. As this personal awareness and positive action develops within,  you will find yourself falling less and less into the snares of internal self damnation and eventually free yourself of this detrimental force on the Will.

Good luck to everyone on their path of power, and may your Will be known upon the Earth…

The Process.

The saying “have faith in the process” can only apply to those who consistently and aggressively strive for dignity, sovereignty and greatness.

Otherwise, this concept becomes a catalyst for laziness, stagnation and an excuse to not break away from that which blinds us…

Use everyday as an opportunity to invoke strength and pride and you will undoubtedly radiate these actions into others around you.

This is a process worth having faith in.

New projects in action and more articles coming soon.

Hailaz to all!

Thoughts and Antidotes for Sociopolitical Extremism and Modern Misery

If we are constantly complaining or worrying about the things (or people) we do not like or do not agree with, then we are actively giving our energy to a place that doesn’t benefit us at all in a positive or practical way. Instead of letting this type of mental habit consume us and our potential, we must direct this energy source towards positive, constructive and creative endeavors. Use feelings like frustration, anxiety and anger in a way that furthers you and your teams’ position within your given sphere. These seemingly negative emotions are useful catalysts for growth and change if approached with wisdom and awareness.

A collective of individuals doing this will likely achieve greater success than a group who spends their energy thinking and obsessing over what the opposition is doing. I am not saying to be ignorant of potential threats and movements of enemies, but do not let their movements make you stagnant and fettered. Surrender will only prove to you and everyone else that you were not all there to begin with and that your will and drive lacks power and genuine conviction. If you can learn to break through the dark places of life without being crushed in the process, then you will gain access to equally immense plateaus of light.

We should take every ounce of this energy and put it into something that we love and want to promote further. Put everything that you are towards the things you care about, believe in and want to see more of. Actively take initiative and “be the change” you want to see in the world and stop trying to force others to follow suit based on mere words. Actions will always be the most potent source of inspiration to others; words will only enhance this phenomenon and will seldom find power without it. If we can act in a way that people want to mirror or achieve, then we can actively help heal the modern sickness that seems to pervade all aspects and ages of society. This act is reminiscent of the saying “you can’t think yourself into right acting but you can act yourself into right thinking.”

The same goes for men (and women) who complain too much about the opposite sex. Instead of being ultra-critical of what they are doing, be ultra-critical of yourself and the cultural actions and dilemmas of your own sex. Ask yourself if you are even worth the time of a quality woman (or man). If you are unsure in that regard, start working on yourself and stop complaining about the perceived inferiority of others. Too often lazy and unhealthy men and women will demand certain things from the opposite sex without giving the least amount of thought as to whether they themselves deserve them or have truly “earned” them. For example, too often I hear unhealthy, unkempt, and uninteresting men complain about women not being healthy, modest, beautiful or smart enough for them. They will sit around and demand that a woman be X, Y and Z, while they themselves are literal savage Pigmen.

This is likely why long relationships are a rare phenomenon these days, as people are unable to instigate growth or transcendence within themselves. They would rather fall victim to the domestication of the “civilized” and modern human who is told to accept his/her flaws as unchangeable tangents of their personality. More-so now than ever it seems that people have an inability to self-criticize and in turn victimize themselves to the sickness that engulfs our psyche; displaying an unwillingness to fix the self while demanding everyone else be fixed.

We have all met this kind of person, and even the most extreme examples are mirrored and echoed in the most minute ones. This problem pervades all of society in the globalized world and we are seeing a desperate misery like never before from even the most average of plebeians. We must all collectively strive to be our best and actively search for the methods in which to do so. This reminds me of something the neuroscientist and author Sam Harris expressed in his book “The Moral Landscape”, there is way that humans’ “ought” to live. I would go one step further and say that depending on your genetics and placement in the world, this “ought” should be dictated by the setting of your ancestors and the places they inhabited, as a person from the forest “ought” to live differently than a person from the ocean or desert.

Some concluding concepts that are wise to evaluate and reinforce daily are as follows:

– If you are constantly whining about another group, race or culture, then you are probably not doing anything to better your own.

-Spend time doing things you love instead of amplifying the things you hate.

-Spend time doing things that inspire you rather than spending time consuming things you hate.

-Love who you are and love what you do, fuck the rest.

Animism

Thunder Rocks, Allegany State Park, New York.

All things, whether sentient or (seemingly) insentient, possess an essence or a “spirit” within and around them. If you hold a stone tightly and close your eyes, you will sense a connection between your heartbeat and the “rhythm” of the spirit within the stone. In Rune work, this would apply to the Raido () rune. If you approach an ancient oak (or any other old tree) in the forest, you will feel undeniable connections and energies emulating from within it and its’ spirit can be accessed, communicated and interacted with. Once you recognize the spirit within everything, you will see how life starts to slowly connect and form one large, organic cosmos of interconnected spirit and matter.

Bodies of water, groves, and mountains are held in especially sacred light within our minds and they have undoubtedly immense power and essence within them. Each stream, river, lake and piece of land has its’ own personality and habits. We build connections and relationships with these environments and habits just as we do with the people we surround ourselves with, and the ancient man developed beautiful and passionate relationships with the landscape, its’ habits and the spirits of those landscapes. These days. people can easily relocate and move; more than likely their blood hasn’t yet built a connection to the soil because they haven’t experienced it for very long. I think this would apply to most people in America save the Native Americans.

It takes hundreds, if not thousands of years for organic relationships to be established between the soil and the blood of the people inhabiting it. The ancient man was locked into the cycle of his environment, as if his own body and mind were attached to its events and happenings. The patterns that were experienced outside of man were mimicked internally and recognized as one cycle. Time existed as an eternal and endless circle, not as a linear phenomenon with beginning and end. This recognition of patterns (and cycles) established the foundation for “religion” or Paganism/Animism.

Resurrection of the Ancient Cult (Cover art by Warhead Art)

‘Resurrection of the Ancient Cult’ is a book I want to put together as more of an “art” piece rather than some sort of novel. I want it to basically be a cross between a zine, poetry and art book; something interesting, short and reflective of the world as I see and experience it.

Eagle Bindrune

From ‘Runes, Bindrunes and Hahalruna : European Sorcery and Divination’ Page. 102

The “Eagle” bindrune was created using the Proto-Germanic word Arô meaning Eagle. It consists of the runes ; with inverted runes added to enhance visualization and intent. This bindrune was made in the linear form, with additional enhancements to intensify and complete the spell. This symbol is used to deepen spiritual connections to the ancestral lineage and to draw wisdom from the past. Meditate on this rune to conjure memories of past lives and incarnations.

The Eagle represents our Higher self rising from the talons of Death; traveling into the spiritual realm and passing through the stages of rebirth. We are physically () gripped by the talons of death (ᛣ) and thrust upward () into the next form; the process of the reincarnation of the Spirit (). The twelve dots represent the twelve months of the year, which reemerge endlessly like our spiritual essence. Additional () runes have been added for wings, signifying the breath/spirit travelling upward after death. In total this gives us four () runes at the crown of the bindrune, indicating the unified order of the spirit reemerging.

The eagle is a totemic animal of Odin, who takes on this form in the Eddas. The Eagle watches everything above the World Tree, soaring high above all realms like the All Seeing Eye of Odin. This Eagle delivers messages from the higher reaches of the cosmos and is revered for its wisdom and majesty. The veneration of Odin as the Great Ancestor is acknowledged through this bindrune and will enhance connections with Odinic or ancestral forces.
