Throughout the Old Testament we find a current of revenge and vengeance, clear from the oft-quoted - 'Vengeance is mine sayeth the lord'. This is mere petty-vengeance, the type of which is today being employed by our power-crazed politicians who increase the thumb-screws every time they see members of the public defying their crazy rules. We could view vengeance as being wholly negative viewed from this aspect. But there is the concept of Just Vengeance which is an entirely different thing, and a very ancient concept.
The Myth of Baeldaeg tells us of the importance of Just Vengeance because in this myth Vali, the Son of Woden, is born to avenge the death of Baeldaeg. He is born and raised for this very purpose, and thus we cannot dismiss vengeance as being a Judaeo-Christian concept - it is not. The basis of this Ancient Myth lies in a Heathen concept - Balance of the Cosmos. Indeed, this is the basis of Folkish Wodenism -
'In the Days of the Lion, spawned of the Evil Brood, The Hooded Man shall come to the forest. There he will meet with Herne the Hunter - Lord of the Trees - to be his Son and do his bidding. The Power of Light and the Power of Darkness shall be strong within him. And the guilty shall tremble!'
The Hooded Man Prophecy - 1993.
The mockery by the liberal-leftists over using this fades into nothing when we realise the importance of the altered words of the prophecy. The Hooded Man arises, wielding the Balance of Light and Darkness, and wielding the Sword Albion, in whose blade is held the Balance of Light and Darkness, because he is incarnated in order to restore the Cosmic Balance. This is the role of Vali because it is Light (Baeldaeg) who is slain by Darkness (Blind Hod), and thus Vali is born to restore the lost balance. This is not something we can, or should, rationalise, because it is an instinctive, right action that is necessary to restore the balance of Light and Darkness.
The word 'vengeance' comes from 'vindicate' meaning 'to clear (someone) of guilt (Collins English Dictionary), and this may be important in that it is a cleansing-process that is necessary in order to restore the balance. Here we speak of restoring the balance of the Folk, the Earth and the Cosmos, all of which have been forced out of balance by the Evil Forces that reign today. It is our duty and our responsibility to combat the forces that are destroying our Folk and the Earth, and Just Vengeance is necessary to right what is wrong. This is right action and not petty malice or revenge. We should avoid the latter in our lives, which is shown as a weakness by the power-crazy politicians today, and this can only lead to a twisted, hateful mind. We are often accused of 'hate' but it is these pathetic creatures that hate, hate, hate - they hate anything that defies their petty power, and it is petty since they are mere 'pawns' in this game, the power residing in a Hidden Elite that even they do not see.
(The ideas here were adapted from an old OR Briefing magazine from the same year as 'The Hooded Man Prophecy'. I will not name the author because he may not wish to be named, but the basic ideas are his. I have just noticed that inside the same edition is The Hooded Man - Part One which was the first of a series I wrote about the subject, written before I received The Hooded Man Prophecy.)
