My readers will in the main be familiar with the concept of Adolf Hitler being possessed by the Wotan archetype, a subject that was first brought to the world`s attention by the father of Analytical Psychology, Karl Gustav Jung in his essay Wotan. He elaborated further on the issue in his later essays After the Catastrophe and The Fight with the Shadow.
The presence of the archetype in Hitler was so pronounced that we now consider Him to be not merely possessed by the archetype but an Avatar in His own right. This idea forms the basis of Esoteric National Socialism, first pioneered by Savitri Devi[The Lightning and the Sun, 1958] and then later in the writings of Miguel Serrano[The Ultimate Avatar, 1984] . Esoteric National Socialism is not to be confused with the American fashion of dressing up as Hollywood Nazis as is prevalent in some quarters. It is a spiritual philosophy which can be applied to all races, not just the Aryan and is the foundation stone of all genuine Aryan religions and spiritual paths.
I have in the past presented numerous pieces of evidence that demonstrates conclusively that Hitler rejected xtianity and saw this as the curse of the ancient world:
"So it`s not opportune to hurl ourselves now into a struggle with the Churches. The best thing is to let Christianity die a natural death."
"The same thing is happening to music as is happening to beauty in a world dominated by the shavelings-the Christian religion is an enemy to beauty."
"What Bolshevism is achieving to-day on the materialist and technical level,Christianity had achieved on the metaphysical level.
When the Crown sees the throne totter,it needs the support of the masses.
It would be better to speak of Constantine the traitor and Julian the Loyal than of Constantine the Great and Julian the Apostate."
The religion fabricated by Paul of Tarsus,which was later called Christianity,is nothing but the Communism of to-day"
"If God is truly interested in men being enlightened,one wonders why He resorts to torture for that purpose.
While we`re on the subject,let`s add that,even amongst those who claim to be good Catholics,very few really believe in this humbug."
I shall never come personally to terms with the Christian lie."
"Our epoch will certainly see the end of the disease of Christianity.
It will last another hundred years,two hundred years perhaps.
My regret will have been that I couldn`t, like whoever the prophet was, behold the promised land from afar."
"Kerrl, with the noblest of intentions, wanted to attempt a synthesis between National Socialism and Christianity. I don`t believe the thing`s possible, and I see the obstacle in Christianity itself."
"Christianity is a rebellion against natural law,a protest against nature.
Taken to its logical extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human failure."
"I can imagine people being enthusiastic about the paradise of Mahomet, but as for the insipid paradise of the Christians!"
"But Christianity is the invention of sick brains:"
"The heaviest blow that ever struck humanity was the coming of Christianity. Bolshevism is Christianity`s illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew. The deliberate lie in the matter of religion was introduced into the world by Christianity."
"The reason why the ancient world was so pure, light and serene was that it knew nothing of the two great scourges: the pox and Christianity."
All the above quotations have been taken from Table Talk.
Hitler, ever the astute statesman and political realist knew He could not afford to upset the xtian churches too soon and it would take time for xtianity to die of old age amongst the German masses. Also Hitler appreciated that there is such a concept as an Aryan Krist who may be found in the archetypes of many Aryan religions, a subject which I intend to keep returning to on my blogs.
Hitler had an early experience of meeting Wotan whilst in the trenches of the First World War where He served with distinction as a corporal seeing the thick of action and being awarded both the First and Second Class Iron Cross. It was quite unusual for a man of His rank to receive the First Class award and this should be borne in mind by those who libel Him as a `coward`. He composed the following poem about Wotan in 1915:
Sometimes, in the bitter nights I go to Oak Wotan.
Surrounded by silent glare,
To forge an alliance with the powers at night.
The runic letters that makes the moon with his magic spell
and all those who during the day are full of impudence,
They become small before the magic formula!
They cast steel spears, but instead of hitting the target,
Solidify into stalagmites.
Thus, the false are separated from the real.
I came to a nest of swords and then give my formula
Blessings and prosperity for the good and the fair.
Jung states in Wotan:
"It is only from time to time that individuals fall under the irresistible influence of this unconscious factor"
I know of several instances where Woden initiates have experienced periods of either temporary or permament blindness, one of whom is a notable personality in the Germanic heathen revival. I myself experienced a period of temporary blindness some time ago in which I received a vision of a circle of fiery runes. From that point onwards I have felt a greater degree of inspiration than ever before and this may be measured in the increase in output for instance on my blogs. Guido von List after a cataract operation in 1902 received a vision of the Armanen Runes during an 11 month period. Interestingly I was of a similar age, in my 50s when I had my experience. I was told by my doctor that further episodes may result in permament blindness.
Hitler finished WWI in a hospital bed, suffering blindness following a mustard gas attack, enduring the melancholy of knowing that Austria and Germany had lost the war, betrayed from within by traitors, bolshevists and non-German elements. One can only imagine what distress He felt. It was this event that marked a turning point in Hitler`s life and within 5 years He was a national political figure. I do not believe this to be an accident.
Scholars try to link Wotan/Woden with the Roman God Mercury or the Greek Hermes but I believe this to be a mistake. Wotan/Woden/Odin is a unique God, the God of the Germanic peoples and it is only amongst related northern Europeans such as the Celts, Balts and Slavs that one finds vaguely similar characteristics in other Gods or heroes.
".....the god of the Germans is Wotan and not the Christian God."[Wotan]
Jung predicted that whilst Wotan`s stormy and enraged Wild Hunt of 12 winter nights[the years of the Third Reich] would momentarily subside he predicted that it would return:
"......Wotan must, in time, reveal not only the restless, violent, stormy side of his character, but also his ecstatic and mantic qualities-a very different aspect of his nature. If this conclusion is correct, National Socialism would not be the last word. Things must be concealed in the background which we cannot imagine at present, but we may expect them to appear in the course of the next few years or decades."[Wotan]
Julius Evola who was critical of the Third Reich states in Notes on the Third Reich:
"Everything gravitated around a man with exceptional abilities for captivating, transporting, arousing and fanaticising the people, while he himself presented under more than one aspect the traits of a possessed person, as if an extraordinary force were acting through him, giving him lucidity and iron logic in action, but depriving him of every sense of limit."[My emphasis].
The Third Reich is now dead, a part of history but Wotan in the guise of His son Wid-Ar lives and He will avenge His father. At the moment He is silent and will remain so until He appears in the form of the avenger, the Kalki Avatar who will bring an end to this degenerate modern world where all values have been turned on their heads and the underman rules.
