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.

Meditations on the Black Sun – Part 1

By Volksieg AOR

The sole intention of this piece is to provide food for thought and, perhaps, to act as a launch pad for further discussion and exploration. None of the writings below should, of course, be considered “Holy Writ” or any such dogmatic nonsense but should be treated as they truly are: mere threads of thought collected as they became apparent. Therefore, I leave it up to you, dear reader, to ascribe any objective value of truth as is deemed necessary.

MAY LOKI BE BOUND

Within the Odinist / Asatru community as a whole, there is often a rampant misunderstanding and false perception of Loki.

They chase further ignorance believing it wisdom, but such is the nature of the Loki energy, it deludes. Continue reading

MAY LOKI BE BOUND part III

There are, as we know, some who actually give blot to Loki.

YGGDRASIL AND THE INDIVIDUAL – Part 2

As we have seen in previous articles including part 1 of this work, our mythology is applicable on various levels of reality and understanding. At a profound level it is an illuminated guide to our own individual evolution to more highly evolved sates and levels of consciousness. A path we progress upon over many lifetimes until we achieve the highest state of awareness, which we may call Odin Consciousness. Continue reading

Commitment

# The Oxford English dictionary says the word ‘commitment’ means: 1. Dedication to a cause or policy.
# 2. A pledge or undertaking.
# 3. An engagement or obligation that restricts freedom of action.

So there is a question which we should ask ourselves. As Odinists, just how committed are we to Odinism and its advancement? Continue reading
