Where To Now?

Where To Now?

By Redwald OR

During my relatively short time in the Odinic Rite, I’ve seen some good folk come and some good folk go. This got me wondering. What brings people to the OR? What keeps them here? What occasionally prompts them to leave? I cannot look into the hearts and minds of my fellow kinsmen, but I can certainly delve deep into my own mind and attempt to come up with some answers. And maybe my thoughts may offer something to others. Continue reading

Some Thoughts about Death and our Relationship with Her

By Hariulf OR

In this article, I have decided to speak of a subject that we do not cover very often in our daily discussion but that is yet one of the few certainties we have in life: death. This is a huge topic and I think we could write many books without ever being able to fully cover it. In this article I’ll just offer some reflections on this subject that came during my meditations.

The 9 Noble Virtues - A Suitable Hierarchy

The 9 Noble Virtues – A Suitable Hierarchy

By K Nowakowski AOR

We took the Nine Noble Virtues, first defining each one as applied to the self and arranged in order of what we thought is a suitable hierarchy of importance and gave a brief explanation. This is a personal assertion that you may or may not agree with, though, thought provoking as it is I hope it presents an additional way to consider these virtues regarded so. Continue reading

Legacy of Blood

Legacy of Blood

By Ulfhethnar Odinsen AOR

The genetic roots of our people long predate the ancient civilisations and cultures of the Nordic North as well as those of Rome, Egypt and Sumer. They were outward manifestations of a people’s inherent drive to understand and create order in an otherwise chaotic world. A desire to emulate the Gods who set the Sun, Moon and Stars into motions and brought a semblance of order. Continue reading

An Understanding of the role of Loki in Odinic Mythology

An Understanding of the role of Loki in Odinic Mythology

By Heimgest DCG

In the myths, the figure of Loki is present throughout the cycle and is only vanquished at Ragnarok. Viewing the myths on the level of our own personal evolution and self realisation, the Ragnarok is representative of our final overcoming of that which stands in our way to attaining that higher evolution, so we see that it is only by overcoming that “enemy” that we are successful in that. Continue reading

My Profession

My Profession

A Report by Redwald OR

If I’m honest, no doubt like many others, I considered Profession rather early on in my OR ‘apprenticeship’. Being pretty eager regarding new challenges, I have often tried to run before I can walk. Sometimes this enthusiasm has paid off, and other times I’ve ended up taking on a bit too much for my own good. Indeed, my wife is often telling me that I do too much… and I nod, smile and tell her that my greatest fear is to be lying on my death bed regretting not having done more. Continue reading

Mountain and Spirituality

By Hariulf OR

As many of you know I have the chance to live in the beautiful Swiss Alps. It goes without saying that the mountain has always played a great role in my life. These are also these beautiful Alps who inspired me this article. I hope it will be not to confuse, I always have a lot of difficulties to translate my thoughts into words. So I hope this short article will have sense for you. Continue reading

Harmonic Vibrations

Harmonic Vibrations

By Brandon W AOR

An army troop marching at full cadence, is ordered to stop marching and walk across a bridge at each soldier’s own individual gait. This is due to the fact that the “in time” stepping produces vibration and the multitude of soldiers adding to the waves of vibration could bring the bridge tumbling down. Continue reading
