Why a Folk Needs its Gods and Why the Gods Need their Folk


Obtaining and maintaining a connection with the Gods of one`s Folk is a vital prerequisite for the biological survival of that Folk. A Folk who have lost that connection or whose connection has been weakened will suffer racial deterioration and finally extinction as a biological, genetic and cultural entity.
As long as a Folk`s Gods continue to be honoured and remembered the Folk will survive and eventually will flourish. In a very real sense the survival of the Folk is dependant on the survival of its Gods and the survival of a Folk`s Gods is dependant upon the survival of their Folk.
The pre-christian Germanic sacred writings, especially the Eddas make it clear that our Gods were never considered immortal in the sense that we consider the term. They were subject to injury and maiming[the loss of Tyr`s arm, Odin`s eye, Hodur`s blindness and the lodging of the fragment of a stone axe in Thor`s head]. They were also subject to ageing as indicated by the story of the theft of the Goddess Idun`s apples which maintained the youthfullness of the Gods.
The Gods can also die as many of them will in Ragnarok and as some already have such as Baldur, Hodur and Nanna.
The Gods differ from mortals in the sense that they have greater strength, wisdom, might, power, beauty and longevity but they are still subject to the same forces as we are.
We are in a very real sense the children of the Gods as evidenced in not only the Germanic creation myths but in the Lay of Rig[Heimdall] who fathered the three Germanic castes.
Germanic kings used to trace their lineage to the God Odin/Woden/Wotan as any examination of writings such as the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles will confirm.
There are some[usually those of the christian persuasion] who criticise attempts at reviving the religion and spirituality of the Aryan peoples, belittling such attempts by referring to it as reconstructionism. However this criticism is unjust. The christian churches embarked on a wholscale cristianisation of the Germanic peoples and attempted to obliterate any trace of our Gods and religion. However they were only partially successful. Many christian monks and scribes from whatever motives they had did us a service by committing many of our myths and legends to parchment and it is from these myths, Eddas, legends and sagas that we are able to get a glimpse at the spiritual and religious practices of our forefathers.
However our religion is not fossilised into a `Religion of the Book` as the the religions of the jews, christians and muslims: it is a vital and evolving religion which at the same time is both rooted in our ancient past but looks towards the future. A religion must be dynamic not static else it will die.
A good example of such a religion or an interpretation of it is the Cult of Woden or Woden`s Folk.

The Gods have not gone away but for centuries they have been slumbering, awaiting the time that they should once again be revealed to the Folk in all their glory.
Jung in his 1936 essay Wotan likens the Gods to psychic forces or archetypes:
"Archetypes are like riverbeds which dry up when the water deserts them, but which it can find again at any time. An archetype is like an old watercourse along which the water of life has flowed for centuries, digging a deep channel for itself. The longer it has flowed in this channel the more likely it is that sooner or later the water will return to its old bed."
And also: "There are people in the German Faith Movement who are intelligent enough not only to believe but to know that the god of the Germans is Wotan and not the Christian God."
Robert Blumetti simplifies this idea very well in Vrilology The Secret Science of the Ancient Aryans: "The Gods and Goddesses are asleep within our very DNA. They are waiting to be called back and once again forge a new bond between mortal and immortal."

Alfred Rosenberg in 'The Myth of the Twentieth Century" touched this question. He said that the archetype of Saint george is plagiarized from the God Wotan. I can just say that in my country, Lithuania, the christian God and his archetype is plagiarized from the archetype of Perkunas (Perun, Donar, Jupiter, Indra, etc). He is protrayed as a combater of the devil (a levantine-Etruscan archetype, as established by Rosenberg) with lightning bolts. So it is just plagiarized from the old folklore where he is the enemy of local aborigenies and their chtonic Gods. I studied the question of archetypes as a conflict of racial souls and can say that even if christianized, those archetypes are of a more or less nordic Aryan charecter. If they are, however, influenced by ideas of racially inferior elements, then Racial Chaos starts to do it's dirty work. It is impossible to kill a folk, as long as it's Gods live on. Christianity is little of a threat as it is a more, or less dead religious form, like the Wotanism of old. i believe in the idea of Rosenberg, that we need a radical religious reform when there will be racial discipline and order in Europe. I believe that the centre piece of this new religion will essentially be Adolf Hitler. What are your thoughts on what Rosenberg wrote on mythology in [he myth of the XX Century, book I he Conflict of Values, Chapter I, Race and Race Soul]?

Thanks for your contribution.I will re-read the aforesaid chapter and consider making it the focal point of my next article.

I must also recommend the second volume of his work 'nature of Germanic Art', there must be something about this. To be honest, i forgot the exact chapter where he wrote about George. By the same token of making this comment, i would request you to contact me by email (i am your friend from Lithuania) I wrote to the organization you are a member of and a certain man said he will contact you for me. Anyway, thank you for the reply. The world of archetypes is a batllefield of racial conflict, as i understood after various studies. The world is a world of racial struggle.

race?racial pride?wtf is that? there is just one God - an infinite ultimate reality, which people like you, are fond of dividing.so in that way, this makes you a dividual.the ultimate reality is God who is an individual i.e. undivided, one, combining the feminine and masculine energies, which underlie the reality.that's why He/She comes throughout history in human form as an individual - as a prophet or messiah or saint or just man and woman devoting his/her life to God.you can never realize this simple truth.you seem to detest such simplicity, always arguing and building theories, schemes and ideologies to match your sick egoistic nature.
why is this attraction to some gods in contrast to a god?whats the point of that?does your personality consist of multiple ones or is it just "you" and thats it?
ignorance is bliss...

Thank you for your comment `Anonymous`. What`s the matter, afraid to use a name? I don`t know how you managed to submit an anonymous comment but I will publish it none the less. You cannot have much of a conviction or you would have used a name to post under.
Why do you monotheists resort to personal abuse to get your weak points across? Not very `godlike` is it?
The truth of the matter is that your religion is dying and the European peoples are rediscovering their ancient Gods and reclaiming their native spirituality.
Or are Europeans the only peoples of the earth to be denied their heritage?
Be thankful that I am giving you some sort of platform on my blog, even if it is to make you appear foolish before thousands of people.
In fact why did you visit a blog that is dedicated to Aryan spirituality unless it is to cause trouble?
