    The Wotanic Warrior Spirit by Vjohrrnt V. Wodansson

    The Wotanic Warrior Spirit
    By Vjohrrnt V. Wodansson
    2000



    Amongst the many great travesties concerning this supposed resurgence of the primordial tradition of Asatru, surely one of the most contorted aspect of it is it's total lacking of the Wotanic spirit in man. The warrior path of the Einherjar, Wotan's fearless chosen warriors have lost their wolf's coat and bear's skin only to be replaced by an un-natural pacific humanitarian Christian thinking. All traces of the Allfather's gift to Man: Oend(breath of life ,old Norse) and his brother Hoenir's Odhr(fury, old Norse) has been taken away by those who would not have a true Man and his folk stand proud in the face of Judeo-Christianity's decadent false values and imperfect dogmas. The bridge to the golden halls of Valhöll have been shut and the Valkyrjur ride no more in quest for the fallen ones on the battlefield because there is no one to wage war the way our forefathers once gloriously did and their fathers before them. Up high upon his throne, the one eyed god must surely be anxious for some news from Hugin and Munin… news of a Heathen awakening.

    In essence, the Integral traditions of Nordic Heathenism, whether Slavonic, Celtic, Teutonic, etc, incorporate all the warrior path amongst other paths. This, the ancient barbarian tribes knew as being a natural process in a Man's life. The quest for awakening the immemorial fire within, Wotan's breath of life. It is an undeniable primal instinct to man than to seek to prove himself not only to others, but to himself first. At a very young age, the young man was given his first sword and thought the ways of combat by his father. As soon as a boy realizes he can die and also, has the power to give death to another, he becomes a man. In our modern times, youth are brainwashed at a very young age to forgive, accept, tolerate and love without restrictions or discrimination. That is NOT the way of the warrior. For it is not in the nature of man to "love" and "tolerate" in the measure that it becomes a weakness to himself and thus reflects on his folk. Love, tolerance, acceptance and forgiveness are not necessarily wrong to begin with, but one must be selective to whom one applies these values. The profound nature of man is combative and belligerent. Wotan often sought to create conflicts between clans only to amuse himself in the wars of men and also it permitted him to see who was true to his teachings and who had not understood the way of the sword.

    In the contemporary Asatru movement, there are many kindred who neglect this honorable path. Concentrating solely on the exoteric aspect of Asatru worship and neglecting the esoteric essence. The actual "blot" is a traditional element of our folk's Pagan culture and a way to commune with the Gods and Goddesses but the true power of any rite of veneration is contained within it's primordial symbolism. Even without any rituals, costumes, or even words the might of the rite is still overwhelming and it's initial meaning still understood by the Gods and Goddesses. And a major part of this esoteric tradition is the warrior's path. For the true warrior, battles are not won only on the battlefield, but in the soul, heart and spirit as well. The greatest battle one will ever fight will never be against a human foe who is merely "human" after all, but against one's own capitulation before the chosen path. The Enherjar fallows a very lonely and hard road filled with constant ambushes and treachery. It is a willingly chosen course and once embarked upon this hazardous road there is no turning back, at the costs of one's pride and honor.

    To the modern man, there are no challenges, no great wars, no honorable quests to reawaken the ancient fire. Today's man his too busy watching hockey, driving sports cars, bragging about his sexual conquests and just being lazy, plain and simple. All manly hood and traces of virility are gone. Replaced by feminine attributes like softness and sensibility. And here I am NOT putting down our heathen sisters but simply stating a fact. These attributes relate to the feminine side, like sensuality, maternity and all the Lunar aspect of the female nature. Man is a Solar representation of that primordial nature. Our pacifist world we live in tries by all means possible to overthrow, even worst; cross over these natures trying to blend them together thus eliminating all traces of each. Resulting in an attempt to regain the original androgynous being. That is absolutely intolerable for any TRUE Man and Woman of the folk. We cannot deny our nature. We can only transcend it.

    There are many examples of self proclaimed Asatru kindred who have condemned all violent or combative approach to the Heathen traditions. Some even go as far as to accept Christians and non-Aryan members within their kindred. Certain groups advocate tolerance over the net and try to portray Integral Paganism as a loving, nature worshipping hippy religion. That is the modern way of Wicca, that neo-pseudo pagan movement filled with homosexuals and drug addicts believing that to walk bare foot in the woods makes them "one with nature" and their hallucinogenic drugs helps them to communicate with Diana, Pan or whoever else. These Christianized kindred who claim to be true followers of the old ways attack that Traditional Asatruar with false allegations of perverting the essence of the Troth when in fact, it is them who are perverting it into a humanitarian religion. The ancient Norse were conquerors and fearless warriors showing no mercy towards their enemies and absolutely not proselytizing their fathers faith unto other races. Even within Europe the ancient Vikings did not force their beliefs to other Europeans, for the ways of the North were not and are still not meant for all.

    When looking at the Norse pantheon: Wotan, Thorr, Tyr, Heimdallr, and even the lovely yet fearsome Freyja and her Valkyrjur, all of them male and female have a central point of connection: WAR! Combat, defense, all aspects of a warlike nature. So how come this most basic pagan tradition as become so feared and shameful now days? To let the ancient fire within fade out, will only result in weakening your spirit and the spirit of the folk around you as well. That flame which burns high in the hearts of the true folk is the very essence of our people's spirit. The primal fire combined with the primal ice represented as our coldness: our dissociation fm the Judeo-Christian decadent and broken faith. They seek to spread their faith like a plague across the world and enslave as many worthless humans as possible while we should strive to keep our ways to ourselves and only, very selectively open our hearts to certain proud individuals who have heard the raven's call. It is no use to try to awaken all the sleeping minds from their Jewish torpor, the winds from the North will only sing to them when they are worthy of deciphering their name in it's song. For most, an honorless death will strike them down long before that. Unlike the god of the Jews, Wotan cared not for quantity, a million weakling cowards could never match a hundred proud and strong Enherjars. For to pass over Bifrost and live forever in the Halls of spears and golden shields where truth, valor and courage were held as the hallmark of the noble soul, only the warriors would be granted such honors.

    It is imperative that we put back into perspective the true principles of Asatru worship. The ways of peace are for those who abandon the fight, who turn their back on their folk and their ancestors memories as well. Those self styled "neo-pagans" are tarnishing the purity of the Troth. The "neo" goes against the traditional and thus it is an insult to our folks beliefs. What they do is dilute the essence and twist it into something acceptable and interesting for the masses. Our way is the way of war, on a physical and spiritual level. We wage war against those who would deny us the freedom to live our lives like our fathers did. To be proud of our heritage, our culture and of our blood. To defend our traditions our folk and our Troth. To be Men and Women of integrity and honor in a world lacking both. To be warriors.

    Excellent. I remember reading this some time ago on the Pagan Front site. Has Vjohrrnt released any other essays?

    He has sent me a few he has written but I dont think they have been officially released through anything yet so im not sure if he would like me to just send them out. There are two of his on the Pagan Front website under articles, you could allways look for his e-mail address on his website http://www.thepaganfront.com/NSBM and just e-mail him and ask. He is truely a great writer, even better activist and friend.
