Edred Thorsson makes it very clear in an essay titled The Secret of the Gothick God of Darkness (1994, Blue Runa) that regardless of what the enemies of our religion may do, eg burn our books, burn our our bodies, close down our cultic orders, etc they cannot eliminate the Gods from our Blood Memory, from the Racial Collective Unconscious, from our very DNA.
"Books can be burned, religious leaders can be killed-but the blood endures."
Despite all the odds our Gods have returned and this began in the late 19th century in all the Germanic lands, culminating in the 12 Nights of Yule from 1933 to 1945 in Germany. It is a mistake for our enemies to think that Woden disappeared after 1945. On the contrary He appeared again to us from the late 1960s onwards and for the first time He is being openly worshipped by His followers. As xtianity dies of old age, not being rooted in the Germanic soil so the Faustian spirit of Germanic man rediscovers the path of Woden.
Unlike the followers of semitic monotheistic and intolerant religions our religion is not dependant upon a book, not even the Eddas, as sacred as they are to us, for everything of value is never lost: it can be recovered in the Blood Memory. Carl Gustav Jung recognised this in his famous Wotan essay in 1936. This is why Woden is not dead:
"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 water-course 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 bed."
"Because the way in which knowledge of this Dark Gothick God is passed from generation to generation contradicts the favoured methods of the so-called 'major religions' of the world-the religions of the 'book'-Judaism, Christianity and Islam....."(Blue Runa)
Our Woden lives and He works and He awaits all those whom He has called to come forth:
"......in the spiraling tower the Gothick God waits and watches as those who will call his realm forth work their wills upon the world." (Blue Runa)
Our God is a restless God, ever seeking new knowledge and new wisdom. Is this not reflected in us, His children, the Germanic peoples? Is it not time that we as a mystical order and brotherhood work our wills upon the world, which is nothing other than the work of Woden Himself?
