Fróðr sá þykkisk
er fregna kann
ok segja hit sama
eyvitu leyna
megu ýta synir
því er gengr of guma

The wise man knows
how to ask questions,
and how to answer intelligently.
He knows that once a secret
is spoken aloud
it is difficult to conceal it again.

Ósnotr maðr
hyggr sér alla vera
viðhlæjendr vini
hitki hann fiðr
þótt þeir um hann fár lesi
ef hann með snotrum sitr

The fool thinks that all who
laugh with him are his friends.
He does not understand
that wiser men
are laughing AT him.

Ósviðr maðr
vakir um allar nætr
ok hyggr at hvívetna
þá er móðr
er at morni kømr
alt er vil sem var

The foolish man lies awake at night
thinking of tomorrows problems
then he is tired
when morning comes
and all his troubles are the same

Midgard is one of the most heard words when it comes to talk about the nine cosmic worlds of the Norse cosmology, as Yggdrasil is the spiritual connection between out world and the next, so is Midgard.
Midgard is often refered as being our very world, the plane we inhabit, which isn’t incorrect because from an ancient point of view, our world was indeed thought to be in the very center of the universe and all the other spiritual worlds and physical worlds were scattered around our very own.

After some years of research, anthropological work with Norse/Germanic shamanic cultures still around and also after a lot of shamanic/spiritual work, we know now that Midgard is also the name of a spiritual world which is included in the group of the nine cosmic worlds of the norse spiritual beliefs. As I have said before, the spiritual plane is so vast that shamans believed to be divided in many worlds because when they came to one place to work with the spirits the landscapes were so different of the ones of the other places they visited, and seldom there is the chance to travel from one place to another in the spiritual world because of its vastness, but in truth it is one huge spiritual realm and Midgard lies in it. So now we will have to leave behind the historical concept we know about Midgard and focus on the spiritual Midgard, that is what I will be writing today.

Vesall maðr
ok illa skapi
hlær at hvívetna
hitki hann veit
er hann vita þyrpti
at hann era vamma vanr

Only a foolish man
mocks everyone
while failing to see
the faults in himself

Quite a picture, isn’t it? A row of white people, kneeling, chains on their hands, heads bowed, “So sorry” printed on their shirts…

It makes me want to puke.

Portland Community College is holding a “Whiteness History Month” – an obvious parody of serious black, Native American, Asian, and whatever else months. This is more than just a cheap shot at white people, it is insulting, venomous, hateful…and, I might add, racist.

What you see in this picture is the antithesis of Asatru, and especially Asatru as we practice it in the Asatru Folk Assembly. Asatru is a native European religion, comparable to Native American and native African beliefs. It is innately tied to the peoples of Europe. We are proud of our ancestors; the pathetic wretches pictured above are ashamed of theirs. We hold our heads high, they stare at the ground like the whipped dogs they are. Their hands are chained together in a pose of supplication, or what is much the same, Christian prayer. They are beaten…and we are rising, moving forward to victorious affirmation of our identity as men and women of European descent. They hate their whiteness – we wear ours in pride.

I believe that every person on Earth should be proud of his or her race. I applaud that! But don’t tell me that I should be ashamed of mine.

If you want to be like those sheep bound for the slaughter, please DON’T put in an application for the Asatru Folk Assembly. If, on the other hand, they revulse you as much as they do me, you might consider banding together with us, and stand with the brave and free.

Feel free to share this if you wish.

Hail the Gods!
Hail the Asatru Folk Assembly!

The clock tower that stands on the grounds of City Hall in the capital of Norway, Oslo, has marked the passing of the hours with musical interludes for many years. Now at six and seven pm respectively, the 49 bells in the tower’s carillon will play “Changes” from David Bowie’s 1971 album Hunky Dory and, the track “Electricity” from what sadly turned out to be the last record Lemmy Kilmister would record with Motörhead, 2015’s, Bad Magic.

Hjarðir þat vitu
nær þær heim skulu
ok ganga þá af grasi
en ósviðr maðr
kann ævagi
síns um mál maga

Even a herd of cattle
knows when they’ve grazed enough
but a glutton never knows
when to stop eating
