The Chariot of Ingwe


I am going to visit this subject again in the light of some new ideas which should help us to understand how important the Holy White Stone of Ing is to the English Folk-Nation. Also, when I first studied this I mentioned that the Ken-Rune was 'upside-down', but this may not be right since it seems that this particular rune-stave could be drawn either way. This does not change the meaning, of course, since it would merely read - Ing-Fire-Gift - having exactly the same meaning as if written Gift-Fire-Ing. Of course, the later 'Christian Cross' imposed upon it does suggest that the stone is the wrong way up, since it is doubtful that a Christian Priest would carve an 'upside-down' cross. Either way, this small fact should be noted but really seems to make no difference. 

The above runes found on Wikipedia show that the dating for the use of the Ken-Rune is between 450 CE and 550 CE, but could be dated later if the rune is the same way up as the stone stands - as late as 750 CE. But these rune-staves do show that this is some 400 - 600 years before the Normans invaded England, thus trying to infer that this to be 'Norman' is hardly logical. The local Steyning Museum told me that the stone was 'Norman'. The Church of St Andrew (which is today also named after the original Cuthman) was Saxon, but further built upon by the Normans, who have tried (no doubt) to completely erase the legend of Ing associated with the church, though somehow the name 'Cuthman' exists to link this 'Known Man' to Ingwe.

Ing was first among the East-Danes

Seen by men until he later eastwards

Went across the waves, the wagon sped behind,

Thus the Heardingas named the hero.

Old English Rune-Poem

In the legend of Cuthman we find that this 'Christian Saint' travels eastwards pushing a barrow in which his aged mother sits. No one but an idiot would actually see this as being a man pushing his mother in a barrow (some Judaeo-Christians obviously do). This is obviously exactly the same legend as that of Ingwe travelling eastwards, but Cuthman travels from Chidham to Steyning, possibly via Stane Street ('Stone Street'). What I intend to cover here is the idea that Ingwe-Cuthman uses a waen (wagon), though this would have, over a long period of time, become a 'barrow' which is not drawn but pushed. 

The Waene-Cult or Fiery-Serpent Cult appears to be more ancient than the Esen-Cults; at least that is what most historians think. One of the main features that seem to be associated with the Waene-Cult is the 'wagon' in which either a God or Goddess rides. The most famous example is that of a ritual recorded by Tacitus, in which a goddess is said to sit in a wagon and then drawn to a Sacred Pool where she is 'cleansed', and where the slaves that pull the wagon are offered up as a sacrifice to the goddess. What we are told is that the goddess is named Nerthus and that one of the tribes that worshipped here was the Anglii - the English. Another account of such a ritual, though no details are given, is that of one to 'Isis'; this would seem to be the Germanic Isais rather than the Egyptian - Greek 'Isis'. But Isis was associated with a boat and we shall see how Nerthus may also have been associated with a 'Wagon-Boat' or 'Land-Ship'. We should also recall that Isis weeps tears as she searches for the pieces of her lost husband, Osiris, just as Freya weeps as she searches for her Od. This is a trait of the Waene-Goddess it would seem. There is also yet another Germanic Goddess associated with the boat-ship, and that is Nehallenia of the Frisians.

The wagon is a typical means of travel for some of the gods and goddesses -

  • Thor has a chariot pulled by Goats.
  • Freyr has a chariot pulled by a Boar.
  • Freya has a chariot pulled by Cats.
  • Njord is called 'God of the Wagon'.
The associations here, or at least some of them, are perhaps linked to the Waen or Great Bear, since Ingwe is associated with Bootes and Arcturus. Odin is also called 'Mover of Wagons', 'Friend of Wagons', 'Protector of Wagons', and 'Ruler of the Wagin-Road'. To the Norsemen the sky itself was sometimes referred to as 'The Land of Wagons'. The ancient Aryans were known for their chariot-riding, and here in Britain chariots were used in war; since there were Germanic Tribes here this produced a continuation into later times. 

The name 'Nerthus' would naturally evolve into 'Njorth' - Nerthus = Njarthuz = Njorthus = Njorth. Njord dwelt in Noatun which is a word meaning 'ship-yard', thus his associations with the sea and waters. Ingvi-Frey had a ship called Skidbladnir which means 'assembled from pieces of thin wood'. Throughout Germania, including here in England, there are legends of a 'land-ship' being hauled around the land with a male or female figure in it. There is also the tradition of the 'May Queen' who is taken around the village in a cart or wagon, another ancient remembrance of this Waene-Cult. Then there is a legend of the 'Ship of Fools' which is a ship with wheels drawn around the land in medieval times. And we have a record of the Merovingian Kings being driven around in a cart or wagon pulled by bulls; a gold bull's head was found in the tomb of Childeric I and we know that the Merovingians descended from Meroveus when his wife was impregnated by a 'Quino-Taur' ('Five Bull'), a Beast of Neptune (the sea). Here we may find some ancient link between the Aryan Hero (Ing is said to be 'the hero') and the Great Deep, coming out of the seas. 

The Dagenham Idol is a wooden idol over 4,250 years old, and found in a bog; can we link this, and the 'Bog-Men' to these ancient Waene-Cults? The figure is one-eyed, but various figures in Norse and Irish Myth contain prefix-names 'Ing' and are one-eyed. There is also the figures found in Denmark (Ing was first seen amongst the East-Danes) which are also wooden idols from an area of bog. Then we have the Oseberg Wagon and also the Oseberg Tapestry in which is found a scene of a horned figure leading a procession of figures who accompany a cart/wagon. This is dated around 834 CE. 

Even today this very ancient tradition is upheld when the Queen, on certain functions, is driven around in a horse-drawn carriage ('carriage' sounds better than a 'cart' or 'wagon' but is the same). The body of King Rufus the Red is said to have been laid in a wagon and taken around the land before he was buried. In all of this we can see the very ancient idea of the Sacral King who is 'wed' to Sovereign (The Land). This is the Hieros Gamos or 'Sacred Marriage' of the King to the Land. 

Although we have the Ken-Rune version as shown earlier, we also have the Ken-Fusion of the Ing-Rune (shown above) on the White Stone of Ing, thus doubling the connection with 'Fire'. It was also called by the name The Firestone which has been rejected by scholars but seems nearer to the truth than they would have us believe. 

In the image above we see 'Jesus' bearing the central roof-beam, helping Cuthman to put this into place. Whoever created the above image used the Ing-Rune symbolism on the gaiters on his legs, which appears again in another image of 'Jesus' with his crook and by his sheep. The 'pillar' or 'beam' is a very ancient Aryan Heathen Symbol; both figures have a 'halo' around the head.

We have seen how Ingwe is the Son of Man and how he is associated with Bootes and Arcturus in particular, and that his name can mean The Anointed One, as does the name 'Krist'. We now seem to have a fairly accurate dating as to when this Holy Stone was carved, or at least we know that it was most likely carved between 450 CE and 750 CE, with the most likely being between 450 CE and 550 CE, which is around the time when the English were increasing their settlement here in these islands. 

The Old English Rune-Poem we have shows a later version of the 'Cen-Rune' (sixth from top, the picture is not clear), and not the version we have on the White Stone. We need here to remember that the stone was found in Sussex, at a place that has clearly been associated with this from its creation way back in time. This was in the South Saxon Mark, but has been under the influence of the West Saxons too, and this seems clear when we find that King AEthelwulf's tomb-stone stands next to it in the church. 

The 'two incised crosses' were in fact Templar Crosses and if it is true that the father of King Alfred was buried here the area must have been a very sacred place for the English. Winchester, of course, was the ancient capital of England, and even before that of the Belgae Tribes. There is a site outside Steyning, next to Bramber, which was an old Templar Castle, so they too must have seen this site as of importance on a spiritual level. The West Saxon Royal Line, through King AEthelwulf, could trace its lineage back to Sheaf-Ing, which is a strange coincidence in view of what I have just said. 

I have once mentioned that the stone itself may be associated with a 'ship' or 'boat' due to its shape. And then we have the Mayan Stela which shows a red-haired, red-bearded figure holding a 'hammer-cross' and sailing in a boat with serpents, with a White Stone in the boat. With the symbolism on the 'heads' at the side - XX-X - this fits with the White Stone symbolism perfectly. Clearly, the figure is a 'White God' such as Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan, Viracocha and Votan. These were all associated with the Morning Star (Star of the Waene) and with the Fiery-Serpent ('Feathered Serpent').

Woden - The Left-Hand Path

Mead of Inspiration was made from Kvasir's Blood; Kvasir was created when the AEsir and Vanir made peace and sealed the pact by creating a human who was the original knowledge. Kvasir came to two dwarves, Fjalar and Galar, and these dwarves slew him and let his blood run into two crocks - Son and Bodn - and a kettle - Odroerir. There the dwarves mixed his blood with honey and brewed from this the Mead of Inspiration. The dwarves then slew a giant in an accident at sea, and then his wife, and thus Suttung the Giant seized them, took them out to sea, and chained them to a skerry covered by the tide. They begged for their lives and agreed to give Suttung the Magic Mead of Knowledge. Suttung took it home and hid it in the inner recesses of his mountain dwelling - Knit Mountain - and appointed his daughter Gunnloth as its guardian. From this tale we can see that the original owners of the mead were the Gods, and from there the dwarves stole it, and then the giants. 

Woden sets out on a quest to regain the Sacred Mead, trekking into Jotenheim to the dwelling of Suttung, Knit Mountain. There he finds nine giants cutting hay in a field. Offering to sharpen their scythes, he tricks them into a position where they slay each other, then seeking their employer, Baugi, his service to do the work of these nine giants in return for a draft of the Sacred Mead. Baugi's brother was Suttung, so although he agreed in principle it was not his to give. Woden did the work and was taken to Suttung, who bluntly refused the request. Woden then took out a hand-drill called Rati and told Baugi to bore into the mountain, which he did. Woden suspected a trick and blew into the hole; when some chips flew back at him he knew that the drill had not gone right through and he forced Baugi to finiosh the job, which he did. Shape-shifting into a Serpent, Woden flung himself into the hole and into the mountain. 

Rati is a title given to Hama (Heimdall), and it is also part of the name Rata-tosk which is the squirrel that runs up and down the World Tree. Since we find that Agni, the Vedic equivalent to Heimdall, has a similar role in regaining the lost Mead by breaking open a mountain, then we can assume that it is Hama-Heimdall who helps Woden get into the mountain. 

Whilst in the mountain Woden gets drunk, very drunk when he lay in Gunnlod's house; he also states that he was in the same condition at the 'wise Fjalar's', one of the dwarves that created the Sacred Mead by adding honey to Kvasir's Blood. It is not clear what he means by this, but it may be that he became drunk through the use of the Sacred Mead. In the Words of the High One we find this statement, which seems to bear this out -

Gunnlod sat in the Golden Seat, 

poured me precious mead:

ill-reward she had from me for that,

for her proud and passionate heart,

her brooding foreseeing spirit.

What I won from her I have well used:

I have waxed in wisdom since I came back,

bringing to Asgard Odroerir,

the Sacred Draft.

This is a most important piece of information which tells us so much about the role of Woden. The poet comments - 'Odin, I am sure, had taken the oath on the ring: who shall ever believe his word again? He swindled Suttung out of his mead and left Gunnlod to weep.' The breaking of an oath was a serious thing in Germanic society, and in doing so Woden would be deemed to be dishonourable. But we have to look more carefully at this, since in reality he did not 'swindle Suttung out of his mead' because it was not originally his, but was taken from the dwarves, who had slain Kvasir to get it. And Woden tells us why he had undertaken the quest to regain the stolen mead, so that he could wax in wisdom when bringing to Asgard the Sacred Mead. In a sense the end here justifies the means, but Woden had to work outside the law to regain it.

Woden tells us - 'The fraud-got mead has profited me well and the wise-man lacks nothing now that Odroerir is come up into the midst of men on earth.' This is clearly the reason why Woden undertook such a dangerous quest, in order to gain the Mead of Inspiration for men on Middle-Earth. In doing so Gunnlod had obviously fallen in love with Woden, and he deceived her; this seems clear since she aided his escape from Sutting when Woden shape-shifted into an Eagle. 

This was a Tantric Love Rite in which Woden transforms from a Serpent (Earth-Bound) into an Eagle (Heaven - Divine). This is akin to eastern Tantra which results in the rising of the Fire-Serpent which produces a kind of 'nectar' which floods the body, as found in so many accounts of this type of work. Hence the Golden Seat that Gunnlod sits in, and the Sacred Mead which is the Nectar of the Gods. Here the work of Hama-Heimdall (Agni) is also made clear, since he is the Fiery-Serpent. 

Woden here works outside of the norms of the society, he is thus, in a sense, an 'outlaw', working outside the laws of his society. But he has good reason to do so since the end result is that mankind has the Sacred Mead of Inspiration which is needed to defend themselves against the Giants. Not only does he trick Gunnlod and steal back the mead from Suttung, but he also acts as a trickster-figure in slaying the nine giant-workers, using cunning rather than the usual warrior way. 

In the last post I mentioned that Tiw had to sacrifice his hand in order to balance the trickery of the gods in binding Fenrir; again, trickery, deceit and magic had to be used in order to fend off the destruction of the Gods, even though this had to come in the end when Fenris broke loose again. In many cases it is Loki the Trickster who uses his wits to aid the gods, mostly when the gods force him to do so after his cunning gets them into trouble. Unlike Loki's tricks and mischief, Woden uses his trickery, cunning and magic to aid the Gods and Men by gaining knowledge and wisdom which holds them in stead for Ragnarok. 

In The Lord of the Rings we find a similar case in the way that the Battle of Pellinor Fields is won; this would have been lost had it been fought as it 'should' have been. However, Aragorn in a sense 'cheats' by raising the Army of the Dead who are 'oath-breakers' and not the usual warrior-type used in warfare. In this way Aragorn acts as the Wild Hunter-God, the Leader of the Army of the Dead, and in the book it clearly states that they bore the Black Banner which is symbolic of this phenomena. We have here yet another case where the 'norm' is not adhered to in order to achieve the end result needed.

Another case can be found in the Legend of Sigurd who rather than sticking by the Warrior Code slays the dragon Fafnir through trickery, in this case aided by Woden who shows him how to do so. Sigurd then cooks the heart of the dragon, eating the heart and drinking the blood, thus attaining an enlightened state of consciousness. He then slays Regin (his mentor) who represents sovereignty (Regin mean 'sovereign') and fecundity (Regin is a blacksmith). Sigurd here breaks the sacred rules of society in order to achieve his aims. 

The Archetypal Hero violates the rules of each caste of society -

  • Disobeys a ruler or a priest.
  • Uses trickery to defeat and opponent.
  • Acts out of lust or deceit against a producer.
This is clearly seen as an act of disobedience by a Magician-Priest-Sovereign, a Warrior-Hero, and a Producer - the three Aryan Castes. The hero has to take on much of the 'evil' of his opponent in order to defeat him. The more dangerous an opponent the more powerful the hero must become. This can then be projected onto the 'Initiation Rite' at whatever level we look at it -

Separation - Breaks the rules of society, is cast outside the bounds of society, working alone or in small groups.

Transformation - The hero becomes something 'different' or 'other'; he is forced by circumstances to fend for himself, to become a 'lone wolf', to look inside himself to 'find himself'. This is done through his having to face the unknown, to face his own inner fears, to face and overcome fear. To do so he has to have something to fear, to have something else induce that fear.

Reintegration - The hero returns as something new, a 'New Man'; in doing so he thus transforms the Folk as a group. As Ouspensky says - 'Changes in the life of the many, if they must come at all, will come as a result of inner changes in the few.'

'My insight: all the forces and drives by virtue of which life and growth exist lie under the ban of morality: morality as the instinct to deny life. One must destroy morality if one is to liberate life'. 

Friedrich Nietzsche.

This is why Nietzsche taught the 'transvaluation of values', that Judaeo-Christian morality was anti-life and had to be transformed into something positive. Where our problem lies today is that the Left-Hand Path is automatically assumed to be linked to 'Satanism' - which it should not be. The aim is not to break the rules for the sake of breaking the rules, not to try to be 'naughty' as some young people do when they take up 'Satanism'. Satan is Shaitan is Shaddein, and is the enemy of the Gods and Men - the Great Liar and Deceiver. The Hero breaks all the rules not for the sake of breaking the rules, but to gain some form of knowledge or regain some form of means to gain knowledge, and this is done for the Gods and Folk in order that they can combat the Forces of Darkness - the Shaitanic Forces if you like. 

Nietzsche is here not speaking of the ethics and morals needed to hold together an ordered and harmonious society, but the Judaeo-Christian 'morality' that is clearly anti-life. This is clear from their view of the sexual act which was heavily suppressed, and which broke loose at a later time with the so-called 'Sexual Revolution'. Prior to World War II the mystics and magicians in Germany tried to put things right by placing the sexual act where it should be as the Creative Act, a healthy creation within the Folk. The so-called 'Sexual Revolution' was a deliberate act to cause a degeneration in the European Youth and when linked to the drug-cults which were part of this it helped to bring into place the drug and alcohol-ridden society that we have today - ripe for mind-control. For a clear indication of how to combat the Judaeo-Christian 'morality' one must look to the mystics and magicians in Germany who clearly understood the problem. 

During the past twelve months we have been forced into a situation where we have no alternative than to become 'outlaws' in our own land and society, which is gradually pushing us out because we refuse to conform to rules and regulations that we clearly see as destructive towards our Folk. We have been going through the process of a 'Mass-Initiation' designed to create further control over our lives, but which we can clearly use to aid our struggle for freedom. The solution to the problem lies in the cause of the problem. 

In the last post I mentioned the idea of extending the idea of Byron's 'Cultured Thug' (put forward by Jonathon Bowden) into the threefold Divine Order -

The Thinker (Head).

The Warrior (Arms).

The Producer - Virility-Fertility (The Groin).

Here we have Woden- Thunor - Ingwe-Frey. But we also have the 'Triple-Godhead' of Woden (Inspiration), Willa (The Will) and Weoh (The Sacred). The latter is the Three-Fold Gods of Creation, the gods that created Man from Askr and Embla. Indeed, these concepts can also be equated with our own technique of the Three Cauldrons - the ALU-ULA Formula.

Odroerir - Inspiration (Head Centre).

Son - Solar Action - Solar Warrior (Solar Plexus Centre).

Bodn - Earth & Fertility (Hara Centre). 

Going further into this we get -

Woden - The Master of Wod or Master of Inspiration & Ecstatic Fury.

Willa - The Will. The conscious application of a desired plan, arrived at consciously.

Weoh - The Sacred. The spirit of separation in an independent sacred place, outside time and space. 

The Aryan Hero (The Vira) must also heal the 'Broken Ego', a concept inherent in the act where the hero pulls the Sword from the Tree, or the Sword from the Stone. The Nyd-Rune thus becomes the Is-Rune - the 'Broken I' is thus healed within the Aryan Hero. This is also the symbolism of the 'Broken Sword' (N-G) which is reforged (NG), and which the Aryan Hero uses to 'slay the dragon', and thus regain the Gold Hoard (Solar Knowledge and Wisdom). In doing so the Aryan Hero has to violate the 'rules of society'.

If Miguel Serrano is right in that the Widdershins Swastika (anti-clockwise form as above) shows a movement against time, the backwards movement towards the Source and the Origins then this form also symbolises the Left-Hand Path which uses a reversal of the norm in order to achieve higher states of consciousness. It is under the Widdershins Swastika that the Woden-Initiate must work, because this is the Way of the Shadow-Warrior.

Dumezil & The Three Functions

Georges Dumezil went deeply into the idea of the threefold nature of Indo-European Society, and I would here like to look at his ideas in the hope that perhaps shed light on how we can build a movement based upon the Divine Order of the Gods, and how this is relevant to the Eternal Struggle against the Forces of Darkness and Chaos. The following is a sketch of his ideas -

First Function - Sovereignty.

This is made up of the rulers, the priests, and the legal specialists. This level is broken into -

The Magical - the Magician-Creator rules by his creative violence.

The Judicial - The God of Justice rules by his organising wisdom. 

Second Function - The Warrior-Hero.

This function is that of the Warrior-Caste whose role it is to have the strength to put the decisions of the ruling caste into action. 

Third Function - The Generative.

These are the healers, the youth, of luxury and prosperity, of peace and plenty, of virility and fertility.

  • The Farmer-Provider.
  • The Craftsman.
  • Fertility, abundance & peace.

The First Function is that of command (The Head).

The Second Function is that of the fighters that defend the community (The Arms).

The Third Function is that of productive work and fertility (The Groin).

Through this three-fold system the harmony of the Cosmos and Society is upheld; here is where the Counter-Initiation have used the idea of 'equality' to break down this Divine Order, thus creating disharmony, confusion, disorder and chaos. Hence the importance of such a Divine Order to us today, without which order and harmony cannot return and the Heildom cannot be created.

Now let us look at the Germanic Gods and how they fit these roles, always recognising that this is not 'black and white' and there are 'grey' areas where their roles overlap.

First Function - Woden & Tiw.

Woden is the Sovereign Magician who rules through power and wisdom, and at times uses trickery to do the necessary work. 

Tiw is the God of Justice and the heroic legal expert; the God of the Thing. Tiw saves the Gods from the Fenris Wolf, and in doing so he makes legal that which is clearly not legal. The Fenris Wolf cannot be bound with the usual means, and the gods resort to trickery and magic to do so, thus making this 'illegal' in a sense. Tiw's sacrifice of a hand makes this a 'legal' act. 

We can see these roles in another way, for Woden sacrifices an eye which symbolises his role as 'The Head' (seat of intelligence), whereas Tiw sacrifices a hand, this being symbolic of justice (The Hand of Justice). 

Woden is a God of the Left-Hand Path since there are occasions where we see him working outside the bounds of society's 'norm', even acting illegally and immorally at times. Some scholars have thus seen him as an 'alien' god but this is certainly not so; he works thus in a sense of the 'end justifying the means' since when working with a devious enemy (The Dark Joten) there is no other way that they can be countered but at their own level. There is no doubt that such a god would never have been needed in the Golden Age, but in our Age of Darkness this has to be the 'High God' because his role is the counter-opposite to the Dark Forces, and he works at a much more 'sinister' level. But, he is balanced by the god Tiw, who acts at the legal level. 

Second Function - Thunor.

Thunor is the 'Defender of the Gods' and his role is to smash the tactics of the Joten and Thursar through his might and main. He fights at a physical level whereas Woden incites the ecstatic battle-fury through his magic. Tiw is also associated with battle, since he decides the time, place and manner of battle; law can be used to gain victory over an opponent or on war. We can see the role in Arjuna who is the physical fighter who is stirred on by the god Krishna, even though he does not wish to fight against his own kin. What is important to realise is that our forefathers saw the 'inner conflict' involved here, that some battles between kinfolk were incited and stirred by these Dark Forces. We can see this clearly in World War II. War was seen to be more of a 'spiritual conflict' and a 'hidden current' lay behind this as well as the outer physical conflict.

Third Function - Ingwe-Frey.

This is that of peace and plenty, of abundance of crops, of virility and fertility. But once more we have to recognise that war and fertility go hand in hand, because in times of war there needs to be an increase in births in order to replace the fallen heroes in battle. Every army would have both trained warriors from the Second Function with the vast number coming from the Third Function who would also bear arms in war. At all times a strong peasant-caste would ensure the defence of a nation when this was necessary. 

I think at this point it would be wise to note the difference between Ingwe and Ingwe-Frey, the latter being the 'Master of the Inga-Force'. Ingwe is the 'Fire-God' and the 'God of the Fire-Serpent', and it would seem that he was the force behind the very ancient Fiery-Serpent Cults which spread across many lands in order to aid and bring civilisation after a massive flood that created disorder and chaos across the world. These 'White Gods' that appeared came as peaceful, wise and creative men who gave their help to others. 

These three functions work in harmony to create order and stability, whether this be to the Cosmos, the Earth, or to any given society; this extends to that of any group or movement, since if we are to counter the Forces of Chaos and Destruction we need to recreate this Divine Order in microcosm, as best that we can in these times. But, there is also the need to recreate such a Divine Order within ourselves. The idea put forward by Jonathon Bowden of the 'Cultured Thug' can be taken even further, and beyond the 'Warrior-Thinker' (which unites the first two functions) to a stage when the New Man unites all three functions within himself

Woden-Tiw - The balance of the sovereign-magician with that of justice and that which is right. The willingness to sacrifice ourselves for something higher, for Truth and Justice. 

Thunor - The Warrior-Hero who fights for order and justice against the Powers of Darkness and Chaos. The gaining of strength, of might and main, of brute force that will crush everything that stands in the way of the final victory.

Ingwe-Frey - The striving for peace through victory, the virility and fertility of the Folk. The strength of hard work and toil in order to achieve what is necessary. Not enough emphasis is put upon the idea of hard work and struggle in order to achieve what we want, in order to overcome all obstacles. 

The one thing that is lacking here is the figure of Rig-Hama (Rig-Heimdall) who was the god who gave to the Folk this Divine Order. It is also true to say that the figure of Scef-Ing should come into this too, since he was the Divine Child who became Folk-King or Folk-Ruler after the Golden Age had ended. Like Agni of the Vedas he brought Sacral Kingship to the Folk. There is also the three-fold system of the Vedic-Gods -

Brahma - The Creator.

Vishnu - The Preserver.

Shiva - The Destroyer. 

Woden acts not only as the Magician-Creator but as the Destroyer in his role as the Wild Hunter-God. This is why I mentioned that things are not quite 'black and white' but that there are 'shades of grey' where the roles of certain gods overlap. Thunor certainly acts to preserve the Cosmic Order and the Divine Order, to preserve the tribe and the Folk. But Ingwe-Frey also acts to preserve the Folk, since he is the God of Fertility; and Freya has her role in this too, as that of magic and battle, just as the role of Woden has the same characteristics. But we can perhaps see in this the reason why Thunor is married to the Corn-Goddess (Sif), who is herself connected to Scef (Sheaf of Corn). Here certain roles are directly connected in the most mysterious ways. 

The New Feudal Order

Over many years our people have been warning about the futility of living in the past, especially in trying to go back to either 'Viking' times, or of going back to 'Anglo-Saxon' times. It should be clear to everyone that the 'English Awakening' failed because there were too many prominent people and groups who were trying to revive the old 'Anglo-Saxon' times in our times, at the same time totally overlooking the true nature of the threat not only to the English, but to all European Peoples, and going beyond this the many different peoples of the world. This is a global catastrophe of the highest level. We can learn from the past, and how our forefathers reacted to the threat of losing their freedom, and this seems to be the most important thing for us today. Let us look at this again.

Where did the problem lie in regard to the Normans? It was not the Normans themselves, since they were clearly 'Norsemen' and of the same blood-stock, but it lay in those who were the hidden driving-force behind them. They invaded England under the Papal Banner (Judaeo-Christianity) and were financed by the money-lenders (Global Bankers). And the system they brought with them was the Feudal System. Whereas the English up to this time had a system in which the individual owned land as a 'freeman', and worked this land for themselves, their families, and their tribes (extended families), the Normans imposed an authoritarian system which took the land away from the people, gave it to the Church and the State, the latter then having total control over the people. Rather than being able to work the land to keep their families, they had to work the land to pay 'taxes' (unknown in Germania) to the Church and State, having only what meagre food was left for themselves. This is the Feudal System.

This was not the first Feudal System to be imposed upon the peoples of Europe, since the Christian Franks had imposed this upon the Frisians much earlier, and had tried to impose this upon the Scandinavians after taking Frisia. However, the Vikings poured out of Northern Europe, effectively halting this invasion of the Northlands, and (for a time) reviving the Cult of Odin around Europe and elsewhere. That this seems to be true may be seen when we find that Denmark started to build fortifications against a Frankish invasion; they would not have done this for nothing. At this point I would like to point out that the revival of the Spirit of the Vikings would be most welcome today, since they had the strength and will (for a time) to oppose this tyranny with force and might, and things would have been different had they not done so.  

This, of course, also goes for the Spirit of the English who fought against the Norman and Breton Barons - the Church and the State - heroes like Harold Godwinsson who fought and died for his people and land, and then Robin Hood, Hereward the Wake, and other English Heroes who continued the struggle to regain their lost freedom. (We should always remember that Harold Godwinsson and Hereward the Wake were half Danish, the fusion of Angul and Dan in these lands). Robin Hood epitomised the Spirit of Woden which drove the English on to regain that freedom. Let us now look at this from a far deeper level.

As we can see in our times, the masses are led into believing that 'economics' is the major factor in driving this type of tyranny. Of course, this is a factor, since greed and envy are one of the main driving-forces behind this, but there is also a hidden factor that is invariably overlooked. If we look at The Vikings TV Series (not completely accurate) we find that the drive to acquire wealth is the motive given to the warriors to raid England. But is this the true motive? We see clearly how Ragnar Lodbrok is from the start guided by the god Odin into raiding England, and eventually setting up home in England. The first move was to sack the Christian Churches, just as the Anglo-Saxons did hundreds of years before this, so we have a clear motive for the 'hand of the Gods' in these invasions. I have often quoted the piece from Beowulf where Hengest is given the 'Hun-Sword', and it was Attila the Hun who faced and nearly broke the might of the Roman-Christian Empire. To me this is enough proof that there is a hidden hand from the Gods working behind this, or maybe we could call this the Hidden Hand of Wyrd. 

Unfortunately, far too many people were deceived into believing that 'Democracy' is the same as 'Freedom'. 'Democracy' is the rule of the 'Demos', the rule of the lowest over the highest, and it always leads to an authoritarian state, as we are seeing clearly today. Feudalism never left us, it was merely 'repackaged' in the name of Marxist Communism; and today it is being imposed upon the world in a very much stronger form. There will be no 'Utopia' as the Socialists and Communists would have us believe, because this is an illusion; what we are seeing is exactly the same Feudal System being imposed upon the world as a World State. At the top is an 'elite' made up of wealth and power, at the bottom will be a Marxist-Communist System for the masses - a huge produce-and-consume society, but no doubt scaled down greatly since - 'You will own nothing, and you will be happy' (Klaus Schwab). 'You will own nothing' because they wil, own everything, just as in a Feudal State. Nothing has changed, we are in the same position today as the English were when the Normans invaded.

I say 'nothing has changed' but this is not strictly true, since when the Normans invaded the English did not throw down their weapons and give up altogether, as most of the English have done today. 'We are the 99%' - not quite true since a good majority of the English, as soon as there was a local vote, rushed to the polling stations to vote for a 'conservative' party that had just taken their freedom away! Any 'Englishman' who tells the old 'French Gun' joke should take a good look at themselves today! We must not be led into thinking that we are stronger than we are, because what counts is not the numbers but the strength of Will of a small opposition. As Alexandra the Great once stated - 'I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep, what I am afraid of is an army of sheep led by a lion'. 

When we look at the world today we are still being led to believe that this whole thing is based upon 'economics', and thus overlooking some of the most important moves that have yet to be made, one of these being a 'World Religion'. Yes, we could look at Covid-1984 as a 'cult' or 'religion', just as in a certain sense Marxist-Communism was led by a religious fervour. But this is not put out as such, and the main protagonists are economists - Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates being the two pushed mostly - 'The Beast' and the 'False Prophet'. Behind this we have the Hidden Occult, and going beyond this another and even more secret level. Like 'Star Wars' we have the 'outer' war being waged between 'The Empire' and the 'Resistance', and behind 'The Empire' being 'The Emperor' - a very Dark Sorcerer. This is the structure I believe that we should recognise because there are secret ways by which these people can attack us - at psychic and spiritual levels. We must not be led into thinking that this is being fought at an 'economic' level alone, there is a far deeper war going on.

There is an example from the past which we can learn from, and that is the example of Arminius the Cheruscan, the Germanic Leader who led the revolt against the Roman Legions of Varus, and brutally crushed these legions at the Teutoburger Wald in 9 CE. Arminius united the warring Germanic Tribes against a common enemy, and in doing so these tribes were able to utterly route the Roman Legions. However, as soon as this threat was over the tribes went back to their warring factions again, refusing to make Arminius their leader, since it was not their way to have one authoritarian leader except in times of war. Fair enough, this was the Germanic way, but in this case this failed the Germans in that the Roman threat did not end with this epic battle, and they took more and more power, although never conquering the Germanic Tribes fully. Sometimes it is necessary to drop what is deemed to be 'cultural' in times of dire crisis, and this was one of them. It is sometimes necessary for everyone to fall behind a good leader and to accept a role as subordinate, even when one has a high position in society. 

This is in fact why our enemies foisted 'Democracy' upon the masses, together with 'equality' and 'fraternity', whilst at the same time never adopting such a crude system themselves. They created a strict hierarchical system or 'Pyramid System' where they were at the top and the masses at the bottom. We can see this in Freemasonry and its strict grade-system, where the 33% Freemason is said to be of the 'Illuminati' (Hidden Elite). The 'Common Purpose' seems to be more of a 'people's' secret society, working on the very same principles, where those who were seen as fit to rule within the 'New World Order' were chosen to do so. There is no other explanation for how at one swift move the global corporations became 'woke' (not a word I like but this is well known), even though they were supposed to be 'capitalists' - the 'enemy of the people'. And at every level they were ready to switch into a higher gear in the destruction of our Folk through subtle advertising promotions and other sinister means. This could never have happened overnight, and had to be a process of decades of secret infiltration into every level of society - 'Cultural Marxism' is a term used for this, but this rather confused the issue than made it clear what the aim was. 

So what we are seeing is not a new thing, but a tried and tested method of control over people over thousands of years, probably going way back into the most ancient times. We are at the end of 'Western Civilisation' and can thus expect this type of thing to happen, as it has done again and again in past civilisations, not only the decay and decadence, but also the 'multi-culturalism' which has always featured in the fall of empires. Julius Evola noted that this did not just 'happen', it was preceded by a spiritual decay which created a situation in which these forces of subversion could work, causing the eventual decay and death of a given empire. Evola was one of those people who could see the 'hidden current' that worked behind what seemed to be material and economic forces, and we too must recognise this if we are to counter these forces. That is our role as a religion, to awaken our Folk to these 'hidden forces' and to create a new Folk-Religion that will counter these forces and pave the way for the Coming Man.

Recently I have been working on a post on the subject of Woden and how this crisis should be used to our advantage, rather than dwelling upon the negative side of these times. Woden was an entirely different figure than many scholars would have us believe, and the way he worked was entirely different, and it is important that we use the means that Woden used to counter the Dark Forces, because the means he used were often not 'conventional', and in doing so he broke many of the 'rules'. He has often been criticised for this by scholars, but in his case the 'end justifies the means', even if at first glance we try to reject such a concept. 

The individual heroes of our Folk - Arminius, Robin Hood, Hereward the Wake, and other 'Outlaws' should be held up as examples for our Folk at this time, since it is the great heroes who resisted oppression who we look to for a way out of this disorder and chaos. 'Order out of Chaos' is a Masonic saying, one which clearly shows the methods they are using today; they create 'chaos and disorder' and the masses cry out for 'order and stability', and in doing so accept the loss of more and more freedom, giving control over to those who had created this situation in the first place. This is a very clever ploy, and one which has clearly worked over and over again for them - but there will come a time when even such a clever plan can backfire on those responsible. There are stronger powers that await their time to manifest on Earth to awaken the Folk to the Final Battle. The Einheriar have been preparing for this in Valhalla, hence the importance of the Viking era because this produced a dearth of great Aryan Heroes to fill the Halls of Valhalla.
