    If You Were Giving a Talk About...

    ... Ásatrú, Odinism, Forn Siðr, Norse Faith in general, or any other kind of your Pagan believe - what would you include? How would you explain? What would be the most important cornerstones to mention?

    ------------------------------------------------------
    I would include a detailed description of the Nine Noble Virtues and the Nine CHarges.

    I would explain the difference between Folkish and Universialist school. If they call me a "racist" I'll help myself to including Hinduism and Shinto (both of which orig. Folkish) in explanation and introduce the principle of mutual respect without dilution of culture.

    I would then go on to explain a little bit of how our mythology is organised, go on to how our rituals are organised, then go over the runes.

    I would also try my best to, along the way, clear up many misconceptions.

    Finally, as a summing up part, I would explain the wider implications of Faith Folk and Family in today's world.
    ----------------------------------

    Ain't too original a structure but it's a plan to make it interesting to people. In fact, it will be the plan I will try to go by, since I am actually trying to arrange a talk at university...
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
