PostSubject: Odin   Sat Nov 05, 2016 1:59 pm



Hi-D asked me about Odin, and Odin does not hesitate to answer her. Odin likes the forthright and bold, and those who test everything on themselves. No virgin can know Odin, nor perhaps can a man who has not found his match in a fight, or who has never vanquished a strong opponent. Odin lives only in the environment of experience. Most of all the experience deep and fulfilling enough that it creates the possibility of solitude. To be most comfortable when alone in the rain, I believe this is a common quality among men of Odin. I was clearly born to this god as my earliest memories involve a lot of waiting for the rain, and pure bliss during the rain. I could sit for hours on end simply listening to the rain washing against the window, and of course nights of lying awake with fire in my heart staring at the tent roof in the dark as the rain flagellates the canvas. Explosive happiness at the mere sound of an element. Odin is a happiness to those that aren't bound by their mind, but drawn out by it, fair to say; those whose mind is equally in the thunder as it is in the brain - and that goes, I would say, for all great minds.

A rather insolent thread, my words were too familiar and pompous. I inserted a storm.

and yet the definition isn't entirely without merit. Another storm:



"this I like" - does that mean the rest you dont like?
If that is the case then there is little more to share, as the thunder and the rain and the wind, these are Odins elements, as well as the snow. Bright weather is Tyrs realm, or Baldur, or Freya.

Or even Heimdall who guards the bridge beyond the storm.



Odin and Skadi perpetuate the path of ice on which only the truly balanced dont fall. Nietzsche said Wotan is the god of bad weather, and this is the case

Odin
Wotan Woden, good fellow
Wuotan, woeden: raging.

Wind god, wolf god, Ragnarok is past, and from your bones we now draw runes, o Odin, and we awaken thee, into our Aeon, hail Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche!

[Value Ontology] Poseidon give us a Shell, an Ornament -

Yes, yes,
the wind is never fully stilled. Odin lingers in the seeds of the ash
as silent but imminent potential, to use a roman term, or Kraft - Macht - zur -- (stormen, woeden...)

Die Macht zum Untergehen
the power to go down.

This has been the silent power behind Nietzsche's theory: the already fulfilled quest for the heights, for existence-pure: in Bismarck Nietzsche relied, not in Wodan, as in Wodan is no will to power, but rather the climatological fact of change of power.

Control change, control rage, control magic.

Runes are the paths of change.

Draw a rune on a stone with a good, strong edge.

Ha! Now you have drawn a rune.
So it begins.

What?

Rune-drawing.




Fate: the sharp edge of time

This is why we prefer to draw runes on a tree that's alive and flexible enough that it can flow around our rune, and perpetuate it in time, not just in mind - which is beyond time, above it, it can contain whole centuries in a moment and produce a new one. But a tree just is, and projects, inwards into peoples hearts from the outside. We breathe the rune that the cloaked man carved in a tree. Such is life!

Being is like wind - it can never be still.
Like 0 degrees Kelvin is not possible, the absence of Odin is only relative.
the presence of Odin however is absolute.

Ha -
Nature likes to hide
Odin speaks in riddles
Zeus laughs. Poseidon is angry. Hades ...



"drew the shortest straw"...

As I said. Fate is a rune, it has sharp hooks in the road.

Hrimnir's daughter, Heidr or Hi-D

When asked about my weather inclinations, Odin frightens me for the most part. Odin confronts me more often than not

into a panic. I am a Sol worshipper with a penchant for calming forces, gentle warm rains, cool breezes, large snowflakes

that flutter down in slow motion. Shoes offend my senses.


Read that Odin gave sight to Heidr who told him of Baldur's eventual

demise. What I find interesting is my likely alignment with Baldur based solely on his described traits before it was

tied to my actual given name wherein Heidr foresees so specifically Baldur as if there was an established relationship

of sorts between Baldur and Heidr that went unmentioned, a friendship or something even more intimate. My romantic

silliness or there's way more going on than meets the eye. I know my God favors me greatly, lives a richer existence

as I am enriched. Smiles on me throughout the days and curses me throughout the nights. A strange relationship of love

and obsession.

I like what you say of Odin, and fright. Surely this sensibility will please him.  It is said of him that he comes to favor only rare men, those who are not afraid of being out-cast. One can not be favored by Odin as an adapted person, one has to live life in exile or kingship, either/or, or alternatingly, or perhaps both at once. Odin has been compared with the will to power itself in some places.

But the greatest friend to Odin is Apollon !
Hail thee, Bright One!



https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/98/Apollo_black_bird_AM_Delphi_8140.jpg

Wolves guard Apollons winter home in Hyperborea, where his mother was from.

“Let us face ourselves. We are Hyperboreans; we know very well how far off we live. 'Neither by land nor by sea will you find the way to the Hyperboreans'—Pindar already knew this about us. Beyond the north, ice, and death—our life, our happiness. We have discovered happiness, we know the way, we have found the exit out of the labyrinth of thousands of years. Who else has found it? Modern man perhaps? 'I have got lost; I am everything that has got lost,' sighs modern man. This modernity was our sickness: lazy peace, cowardly compromise, the whole virtuous uncleanliness of the modern Yes and No. … Rather live in the ice than among modern virtues and other south winds! We were intrepid enough, we spared neither ourselves nor others; but for a long time we did not know where to turn with our intrepidity. We became gloomy, we were called fatalists. Our fatum—abundance, tension, the damming of strength. We thirsted for lightning and deeds and were most remote from the happiness of the weakling, 'resignation.' In our atmosphere was a thunderstorm; the nature we are became dark—for we saw no way. Formula for our happiness: a Yes, a No, a straight line, a goal.” [Nietzsche, The Antichrist]

It should be clear that Odin and Apollon both are gods and friends to the Shaman.
And this gives to understand the difficult, painful and slow initiation process.
