Rise from the Ashes…

Someday, in the right incarnation, the modern, civilized and domesticated man will wake up and realize (with much anguish) that he is himself extremely sick and culturally, spiritually, physically and mentally unwell.

His prison of flesh and bones with constrict him into a new state, a state of self awareness wrought with a great vastness and knowledge of patterns and interconnection.

Here he begins his journey to rebuild himself, or rather, build for the first time his true self, awakened and risen from the ashes of fate.

To know where he is going, he must look to the past…

Modern “Extremism”

True extremism is living a simple, low cost and sustainable lifestyle while being happy to do so.

It is about building families and upholding traditions rooted in love and understanding for nature.

It is about finding pride and admiration for your ancestors and their ways of life.

It is about fighting for sovereignty and dignity in a world void of honor.

When it comes to your freedom, growth, and well-being, be an extremist.

The Mind and the Will, P.1

The mind is a watery () place with shifting tides, different depths and ebbs and flows. It is a malleable metascape that can experience sudden storms and equally bright moments of calm and clear reflection.

The Will however exists in a place far more primordial in origin and functions in a similar way to a muscle. The training of the Will makes it grow, strengthen, and essentially allows it to carry more weight.

The Will carries the mind, the body, and is a reflection of our spiritual health; our Soul Health.

We must eat well to preserve the physical temple, sleep and think well to preserve the mental, but also we must strive, conquer and succeed in order for our Will to grow and ascend upward. Once we have a strong foundation built, our Will can carry the rest forward like a chariot of the soul.

The Will will drag the rest when times become difficult and can maneuver the terrain more clearly and focused when things seem in order. This Will takes the form and function of our highest and most potent self, constantly trying to make itself known even through our sometimes murky and Hedonistic tendencies.

Hold the Will as the highest form, the Godhead of your existence. Listen to it and train towards its’ mastery. Compete only with your own obstacles and never back down in the face of a challenge.

May you succeed in every aspect of your true Will.

Fate, Instinct and Nature.

I am convinced in the existence of fate because of the natural laws of cause and effect. Every cause has an effect, indicating a pre-determined outcome for any and all actions. All things and actions no matter how big or small are carefully designed and created with a specific intent and purpose to fulfill, whether conscious of it or not. All is connected like pieces in an endless puzzle.

However, while fate may indeed exist, it is not a finite and concrete model.

There is “wiggle” room…

Rune magic and most divination methods exist for this reason; to gain further insight into circumstances in their past, present and future context. The web of fate is constantly spun, but like a physical web (which looks seemingly perfect) there are minor variables throughout it based on circumstances and the spider’s reaction () to them, resulting in the intended and coherent final product.

In extremely primitive terms, humans have the capability to “foresee” many future events at all times and are able to make present decisions and actions in order to affect those future events. This is evident in our knowledge of the yearly natural cycles of the Earth. Our ability to foresee seasonal, terrestrial, and cosmic events helps us sow, cultivate and harvest what we need to ensure we survive as long as possible. Being able to foresee Winter gives us time to change our circumstances and better our future position.

This is primitive, but evidence of divination nonetheless…

With practice and patience, you can begin to adjust certain strands and strings of the web, gaining deeper insight into their workings and patterns. Personal rune reading (followed by honest decoding) will do this, as well as Tarot and other divination practices.

Instinct is also a good piece of evidence for some kind of fate or design as well.

Instinct indicates that DNA holds literal knowledge of its physical expression and its’ living experience. In other words, Nature imprints experience on its’ creations for them to remember the rules and laws of existence, the laws of fate. The fact that an incubated chicken knows to scratch and eat certain things without seeing it before, or in the way a butterfly’s wings can display pictures of predatory animals like owls, snakes and foxes,  indicates a creative awareness and conscious design within nature, almost like a computer program with all functions working to create a working system. Biological evolution is further evidence of this “Nature Mind” as it is always consciously creating, altering, and watching itself…

Perhaps to fulfill its own fate…

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

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!
