In cultures throughout the world, the vital link between health and spirituality has always been recognised; many- such as Buddhists- work with this link in their daily lives today. The ancient Vedic texts written by our ancestors contain much of this wisdom which unfortunately has been marginalised or lost to us as a consequence of our descension into the Kali Yuga aka the Wolf Age and with it, a great agenda that seeks to enslave us all. In particular, our folk have suffered as a direct result of embracing an alien creed, which sees the body and spirit as separate, the body often being regarded as little more than a repository of sin.
Planet Earth is a living, breathing entity. We have all at some point in our schooling come across the subject of geography, which describes Earth's terrain in terms of Her structure- mountains, continents, rivers, rocks and so forth. This is her skeleton.

As Odinists, we must realise the triune concept of time with its past, present and future as static entities does not belong to our worldview; indeed, common parlance demonstrates this admirably: "you can't live in the past;" tomorrow never comes." Both sayings hint at the truth: there is only an eternal now, an eternal becoming.

Without a specific heritage to claim as their birthright, people are rootless and consequently drift through life without knowing or understanding where they came from, who they really are, or where they’re truly going. It has also been said that without the solid foundation of heritage, it is not possible to build anything that will last and stay the course, and that includes a folk community. Although this applies to every racial group, in this short article I will be focusing primarily on the situation of the Indo-European Folk.
Because edible plants were important to our ancestors, and will again become important to us, I seek to learn about the edible plants of my own odal lands here in North Carolina. Getting to know particular plants, watching them grow, learning their uses at different times of the year, and allowing Mother Jorth to bear them in Her time while being conscious of that life process, can lead to sensitivity and patience lost for many caught up in the age of convenience and consumerism that surrounds us. Learning about these plants also gives one an opportunity to gain knowledge that will be important for our existence again as the dark age further unfolds. Let the ignorant dismiss us as “survivalist nuts;” we will continue to prepare.
Modern life as we know is oriented around the use of electromagnetic energies: we are constantly bombarded by electromagnetic radiation from televisions, radios, phones, pylons, high voltage cables, modes of transport, computers and the myriad of household appliances we use. Any metallic objects surrounding us act as receivers and dissipaters of these disorientating energy waves, which can alter the very polarities of our physical bodies and upset its homeostatic balance.
