Odin Speaks To Us ^^ An Urgent Call For Courage
What would Odin say to us today? From an Asatru Meeting in Omaha, Nebr. 2007. https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/intelligence-report/2007/norse-god-odin-visits-neo-nazi-anti-immigration-rally-after-party-omaha-neb

.... The dimensions of gnosis that he attains are both deep and transcendent (ah the limits of spatial metaphors!). The mysteries arise from the dark roots of the unconscious (both collective and individual) and they point us towards the reality that the northern Gnostic must awaken within the realm of Midgard. Whichever version of the futhark that we work with, they represent the worldview of the ancestors both in relation to their core values and day-to-day concerns. Like the “Sly Man” of the Gurdjieff Work, for those of us seeking to emulate the path of the All-Father, our awakening needs to integrate and balance the needs of body, mind and emotions. It needs to be here and now rather than in some imagined nirvana/Valhalla!
In contrast to the Gnostic explorers of the classical period, the Northern Gnostic seeks the way of awakening within the natural world rather than away from it. This is a path of integration typified by the hermetic axiom of “as above so below, as below so above”. We need to wake up from the sleep that culture and routine can lull us into, but our awakening is also a realization of connection and relationship rather than lofty isolation. This is not an easy journey to make; we need to work hard to uncover these often over-grown pathways. Awakening to Runa often brings a greater sense of being out of step with the mainstream – Odin took up the Runes of realization screaming and roaring. As we seek to dive deep into new realms of understanding, we need to understand their true cost: that they can only be accessed when we give up what we think we know to gain true insight – “sacrificing self to self”. Here we find ourselves contending with the insights of C.G. Jung and other trans-personal psychological approaches where the ego is not abolished but rather is transformed via expansion and extension to incorporate the dark roots of the unconscious (Hel) and the bright potentialities of what we might become (Asgard).
In the Zen Hearth of Odin the Wanderer this awakening within the turning of the year is the focus of our work. Via the use of Zen sitting practice, Runic Galdar and core shamanic trance technologies (i.e. drumming) we seek the wisdom of the old ways so that we might live more fully today.
