Gday the Folk,
The thought came to me that while Heathenry may not compete in certain ways
with established religion..... perhaps it is not in the same arena after
maybe that's the point that is being missed. My personal approach is from
Folkish, cultural and ancestral viewpoint for the most part.... and this is
I think probably our greatest strength
at least it seems that way to me. Thorsson mentions this in his book
"Northern Myths and magic" about the sense of belonging and
he saw among Native Americans regarding their tradition
The Northern Path is ours. And however imperfect we may be expressing it at
the present time... is not the point.
I've often used the term "We are all here together" yeah.... so
its the Gods,
ancestral spirits.... ourselves as the leading edge of the "great war
our people"... and all the generations yet unborn
An so this is not a religion, but much more than a religion, if we
all the Cultural stuff, Folkways and Folk-lore and so we can offer a
of identity than no universalist Abrahamic faith can hope to.
Its about "being"... and "being with"....
"doing" and "doing with".... our
people and everything that means.... the Gods, ancestors... and Folk.... all
the way back
Living a meaningful life..
