Wotan Awakes!


Nothing constantly amazes me more than the minority of people who visit a blog like this which has a very clear purpose in portraying an Aryan Weltanschauung who accuse me of being `divisive` and attempting to `divide` God, denying the reality of a universal supreme being etc, etc.
Clearly these people are an example of those who to use a biblical metaphor `have ears to hear but hear not`!
`God` or the Gods manifest himself/herself/theirselves according to the ethno-cultural context of the person or people concerned. They fail to understand that a higher reality can manifest itself using many different guises. Take for instance the various divine pantheons of the geographically divided pre-christian Indo-European peoples. Through the study of Comparative Mythology one can see that most of the deities in these various pantheons share a common Proto-Indo-European origin but the Gods and Goddesses manifest themselves in slightly different guises according to the cultural matrix of the people concerned. Sometimes even the names of the deities are very similar or point to a common etymology suggestive of a shared cultural and ethnic origin.
There is also the argument that we heathens attempt to divide what monotheists regard as a single deity into many seperate and diverse Gods and Goddesses and they regard themselves as having a somewhat `superior` revelation or spiritual understanding. Yet a cursory reading of the Old and New Testaments demonstrates the falsity and paucity of their spurious arguments. Their God is clearly an amalgamation of several different middle-eastern tribal deities all combined and hashed together and presented to the wider world as a `Universal God`. Excuse me if I do not take this `deity` too serious or that I should bow the knee to an alien God who seeks the extermination of non-semitic peoples and global hegemony. Whether it be the God of Judaism, Christianity or Islam it is the same alien God who seeks to impose his will or more accurately the will of his supporters upon the rest of the world.
Here in northern Europe we have thrown off the shackes of centuries of ignorance and servitude to an alien God and are responding to the call of the blood and honour the Gods and Goddesses of our pre-christian ancestors. Indeed Asatru/Odinism/Wodenism/Wotanism[call it what you will] is allegedly the fastest growing religion amongst Germanic people.
This should not surprise us as Wotan has awakened in the Collective Unconscious of the Germanic peoples. He cannot die but will live as long as our people live.
"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 flowed for centuries, digging a deep channel for itself. The longer it has flowed in the channel the more likely it is that sooner or later the water will return to its old bed."[Wotan, C.G. Jung]
By contrast Christianity only started to be dominant in northern Europe between the 7th and 15th centuries, the Baltic peoples holding out the longest against the onslaught of the Christian butchers who oppressed and slaughtered people in the name of their `god`. But Christianity is dying in the north and Islam will not replace it despite the attempts of its more radical adherents.
The spiritual awakening of the Germanic peoples will act as the necessary foundation for political action. Indeed we are already seeing the beginnings of a political struggle for our peoples to regain their freedom from alien oppressors of both the political and religious kind.

An interesting post that inspires one to further thought...prima facie, I'd agree with some of it but would see other aspects differentiated. But I also believe that Christianity is basically a Levantine-based phenomenon that is structurally unfit for most Germanic peoples.
