    Pulling Weeds

    Those who do not understand the nature of the problem can never understand the solution. So, I am dedicating the rest of my time here, to writing constructive articles, focusing on logic and Natural law. Some will agree, some will not. I write for those who are concerned about the future of the Germanic people and believe a solution is attainable. Mostly though I write for my two sons Leif and Jake, who are the all in my life.

    Pulling Weeds.

    Great gardens create great neighbors, great neighbors create great communities, great communities are the foundation of all great nations.

    Those who have gardens know that they are always under threat by both pests and weeds. Pests are the biggest problem that confront the gardener, but weeds are just as formidable a foe. They must not be given the chance to produce seed. Weeds exist in all aspects of nature especially right in our own minds. These are manifest in doubt, false pride, idleness, fear, envy, etc. When these things take root in our minds, they become evident in our lives, our communities and ultimately our nations. Eradicate them from your mind, and they will not spread to others.

    Pulling weeds need not be a dreaded task, but should be a joyous one. This is a great need to ensure that the garden gets maximum nutrients and has as much room to grow. Weeds spread by seed and they spread quickly.
    Also, weeds will bring with them disease and pests. Some ants love certain weeds and ants can devastate a great garden just as easily as they can a small one. So look forward to pulling weeds as it is always to your benefit and those around you.

    There are some methods that make pulling weeds an easier task.

    First learn to identify weeds. When you are planting a garden by sowing seed, the young seedlings growing up will not be alone. They will be accompanied by weed seeds. Seedlings of vegetables or flowers must be distinguished from weed seedlings. Learn to identify what weeds look like from the time they are weedlings, till the time they reach seed. It is imperative that these weedlings do not grow alongside your seedlings. They will only stunt the plants growth. The weeds we face in our minds are many as are weeds that grow in the garden. Anything that steers you from your purpose or creates shame in your conscious is a weed. Do your best to eliminate them in your own life, and others around you will do the same.

    Secondly, keep the soil loose. Soil that weeds have taken root in that is compact allow the roots to gain a firm hold. Never leave this soil so compact that it makes it difficult to pull out the root. The root must be eliminated. If it is not it will only re-emerge stronger. Weeds will grow as easily in gravel, (closed mind) as they will in peat (open mind). Likewise the more open the mind the easier it will be for weeds to take root. We must then become a hunter of weeds, persistence knows no rest. Never leave yourself in an unteachable state, never think that your way is the only way. When these weeds take root in a closed minded person, the result is always infestation. The process of removing them is tremendous and seldom successful. In this world, there is always something to learn, do not ever doubt it.

    Thirdly, weed often. The success of your garden depends on this. The more time you spend pulling weeds, the easier a task it is. Constantly tear yourself down. If you are one who is always questioning others, do not forget to also question yourself. This process will strengthen the man of conviction and foster humility. The man who goes into battle a humble contender, is often the victor.

    Lastly, use a sharp trowel. This is for those weeds that have been embedded for a long time. It is also for the ones which consist mainly of a root. They stay close to the ground hiding in the foliage, until one day you look out and it appears they instantly go to seed. These are the most damaging and they must be dealt with using a sharp trowel. Get the root, and you ensure it will not spread. This is going to shake up the soil around it a bit, but don't be scared to plunge it straight in. The Germanic people thrived in a climate of uncertainty and diversity, and it is their willingness to confront it head on that made them great. Adaptation is the way of Nature. Shake yourself up often, read books that go against your grain. Talk to those who you consider your enemies. Learn from them. Isolation is two sided, if it is all that keeps you whole, it can only breed weakness.

    These are some ways that you can combat weeds that take root in your garden and in your mind. The important thing to do is to recognize them for what they are and what they will do. This is but a small step that must be taken by the individual, and it is only a baby step at that.

    Of course we can always pave the patch with concrete or asphalt, as some are sure to suggest or worse exterminate the weed species altogether. This only separates man from nature. Any man who closes his mind up so tight as to not even let the light of the sun in, surly has little purpose in life. His existence is based upon rigidness. But before the might of nature it is nothing but brittle. Faced with hardship and strife, he can only disintegrate into a thousand pieces. These types of people do nothing to advance the Germanic revival other than hindering it.

    Nature is the embodiment of fertility, our minds must become so as well if we are to survive and advance. Her lessons are absolute, her wisdom fathomless. Learn from rather than fight her, be like a tree, bend with rather than stand against the wind.

    Those are fine words, Vindefense. I'd say you have good perspective and a gift for metaphor.

    Dealing with Pests

    Dealing with Pests

    Once your garden is cleared from the weeds, which will only be temporary, you must turn your attention to pests. These are the greatest threat to a healthy beautiful garden. Pests come in all sizes, shapes, and dispositions. They never come alone and almost always attack the weakest and the most un-healthy plants first. Once established they will multiply. Because the pest needs the nutrients that the plant has to offer, it is neither a matter of wrong or right but one that is in accord with nature. The best defense against pests is found right inside the plant. Nature has given the plant the ability to defend itself biologically and efficiently. This safe guard weakens in proportion to the health of the plant. So keep your plants healthy to provide your garden with the best defense. Thin when necessary.

    The pests that infest your garden can be broken down into a few types. No matter what variety the pest is, they always attack in a predictable manner.

    Pests that attack the root (memory), always do the most damage because it is often un-seen. If the roots of a plant become incapable of extracting minerals and water from the soil, the plant dies. To forget who we are and where we came from is to deny our ancestors. There were many lives who came together in the past to shape your life, it is the highest duty to acknowledge and honor them. This is evident in all people. Those who insist that your life consists only of the present are pests trying to attack your roots. Strive to fully understand your past, and you will gain an understanding of the future. The son who loves his father remembers his roots and preserves them, the son who does not severs this link forever.

    Pests that attack the leaf (thought) are always seen, although some are microscopic the evidence can not be denied. This infestation must be dealt with as quickly as possible, since the leaves become unable to deflect water to the stalk. Worse they loose the ability to produce chlorophyll and they can not collect sunlight for photosynthesis (creating sugar). The plant will not produce fruit and it will have no purpose. Knowledge has no purpose alone. It does no one good to fill their mind with knowledge if it can not be used in a practical setting. Since knowledge is the key or the process by which we reach wisdom, it's purpose must be utilized properly through thought. Without thought knowledge is useless. Without knowledge thought has no direction. The man capable of applying thought, has no obstacles before him which can bar his way.

    Pests that attack the fruit (wisdom), are not as bothersome to the plant as they are to the gardener. After all the time and effort that went into the plant, do not neglect the fruit. An infestation among fruit means that all your hard work was in vain. If the plant is healthy and the gardener is steadfast, his reward is a bountiful harvest. When we utilize the functions of our brain in a proper manner, through memory and thought, we gain wisdom. Wisdom is the knowledge of what was learned in the past applied to the present. It is immune to criticism and it stands alone. Wisdom shatters ignorance and scorches lies in the light of truth. We must always strive for wisdom, it is the labor of the seed and the sweetest of rewards.

    Keep your garden free of weeds and they will not spread to others. Keep it healthy and you limit the effect that pests will have upon it. Keep out pests and you will reap the harvest.

    Should we chose un-natural methods to fight pests, let us always assume responsibility for the consequence. Whether using chemicals to eradicate them or growing fruit in a tube. Go against nature and you commit a wrong that can not be reconciled. Her wrath shows no mercy, her judgment is always final. The fruit grown with out the root is nothing but a Frankenstein creation. The man who mocks the wisdom of his elders with the knowledge of the day, is only a fool.

    There is a right way and a wrong way to learn; both are not equally valid; not everyone has something worthy to teach.

    Wisdom is the knowledge of what was learned in the past applied to the present.
    All knowledge is not limited to a past or collection of facts. You need to specify that your use of the term knowledge is in the lower discursive sense (reason) rather than the pure and direct sense (intuition). Moreover, knowledge exists whether it is applied to something or not.

    Knowledge has no purpose alone. It does no one good to fill their mind with knowledge if it can not be used in a practical setting. Since knowledge is the key or the process by which we reach wisdom, it's purpose must be utilized properly through thought. Without thought knowledge is useless.
    Thought corrupts knowledge; a mind can be pure or impure. Knowledge exists for its own sake and for others. Everything exists by way of a principle. But not everything is limited to the practical or corporeal state, which is to say there is more to life than just material existence and practical science. Pure knowledge requires assimilation and must be followed as a way of life.

    Just because one knows a thing does not mean he should act on it; action always comes with consequence.


    The man who mocks the wisdom of his elders with the knowledge of the day, is only a fool.
    I agree insofar as elder is taken in its sacred sense and not simply old age. Age does not equate with wisdom.

    True. There may be many doors but only some will lead to truth. How does one find them best? By opening them.

    I would not follow an ever-mutable tradition and claim it as the eternal wisdom of the gods.
    I can offer no eternal wisdom, only life experience which is boundless.

    Knowledge without purpose is only data. It does not matter if the child has been told the hot plate is hot, what does that mean to him? If he has no fear he will reach out and learn. Until he does that, knowledge is useless. All children learn this way. Faith does not dull the mind of the child, and the capacity to learn in them is great because of it. All that is needed for man to regain his ability to learn is to overcome his fear.

    it's purpose must be utilized properly through thought.
    By limiting the presence of corruption in your thoughts, you avoid distorting knowledge. The process is whole, not partial. Just as the plant takes sunlight and uses it to produce sugar, flower and then the fruit. The healthy mind capable of taking knowledge and applying it with healthy thoughts, is capable of achieving true wisdom. In this manner, Thought reinforces knowledge.

    I would not call life experiences boundless (everything in life is bound by something), but I was in no way referring to you or a personal way when speaking about eternal wisdom. I was pointing to the fact that one can follow a traditional path instead of their own way.

    Of course, knowledge requires understanding. But to know is also in a sense to be the thing known.

    Until he does that, knowledge is useless.
    However, to know and understand does not require a physical action but merely a mental union of the subject and object. Otherwise knowledge would be limited to a time and place or by action whereas knowledge is superior to these. And what about knowledge of all things in simultaneity which occurs like a lightning flash? If knowledge cannot be separated from a container of sorts (actually its contents since knowledge is the container) then what is to be said of the eternal? Is there such a thing as "eternal life" or an "unmoved mover"? In my opinion logic and natural law can never go far enough to explain reality.

    By limiting the presence of corruption in your thoughts, you avoid distorting knowledge.
    The question then would be the method of limiting corruption.

    OK. Not boundless, perhaps unaltered. A mirror does not distort nor color, it only reflects what stands before it.

    A man can follow a path that another man or men made, true enough. In doing so, they will find what many seek. The man who carves his own path seeks what few will find.

    However, to know and understand does not require a physical action but merely a mental union of the subject and object. Otherwise knowledge would be limited to a time and place or by action whereas knowledge is superior to these.
    One can reverse this whole statement around and it is just as true then. You are creating an entirely subjective argument and by using the above words all you have done is color the truth to suit your belief. I am simply conveying the process by which children learn. It is faith which corrupts true learning.

    The question then would be the method of limiting corruption.
    Struggle. Only man can pull weeds. It is the natural tendency of man to find the easiest path. Just as electric current seeks the path of least resistance so too does man.

    You're still not getting it. There are paths which no man made but were delivered by the Spirit (God) which is in him.

    Nonsense. Only in a very limited sense of knowledge, but then this wouldn't be knowledge at all. You are rigging the experiment to get the result you want.

    Furthermore, when attention is on a higher plane of reality which is beyond opposing pairs (good and evil, day and night, big and small, etc.) then it would be impossible to experience these things, in other words, your theory leaves no room for the eternal since this cannot be reached by a culmination of facts or experiences.

    You are creating an entirely subjective argument and by using the above words all you have done is color the truth to suit your belief.
    Just because I wrote it here doesn't mean I created it. Why is this so difficult?

    I am simply conveying the process by which children learn.
    Again, very limited. If you write about knowledge and wisdom then it cannot be limited to the learning abilities of children. Needless to say, all children do not learn in the same manner. Some have remarkable intuitive qualities. But you made claims as to what knowledge and wisdom are which I find to be highly flawed whether it relates to children or not. Moreover, the way in which you liken knowledge and wisdom to the learning process of a child I find to be rather arrogant.

    It is faith which corrupts true learning.
    If you attribute all paths to a personal invention then that is not faith but individualism...

    Struggle.
    Quicksand.

    Only man can pull weeds.
    They are only weeds as seen from below or from the individual point of view. A weed is nothing more than an herb. You cannot root out all the weeds just as you cannot eradicate evil. It has its purpose for all things exist which are contrary or else they don't exist. To be detached is better than to be forever busied pulling weeds methinks.

    One path is visible, the other hidden. Does the hidden one not exist then? Which one will be more broadly followed?

    your theory leaves no room for the eternal since this cannot be reached by a culmination of facts or experiences.
    Facts and experience are only one part of the equation. The process of reaching wisdom is cumulative. Yet wisdom certainly is not limited to these alone, in fact where did I say that? What is eternal?

    Again, very limited. If you write about knowledge and wisdom then it cannot be limited to the learning abilities of children. Needless to say, all children do not learn in the same manner. Some have remarkable intuitive qualities. But you made claims as to what knowledge and wisdom are which I find to be highly flawed whether it relates to children or not. Moreover, the way in which you liken knowledge and wisdom to the learning process of a child I find to be rather arrogant.
    Only someone with a very rigid way of looking at things would assume that I am doing this. It is absurd to believe that the highest form of learning is the way a child learns. Where did I say that?

    They are only weeds as seen from below or from the individual point of view. A weed is nothing more than an herb. You cannot root out all the weeds just as you cannot eradicate evil. It has its purpose for all things exist which are contrary or else they don't exist. To be detached is better than to be forever busied pulling weeds methinks.
    Yes, You are right. Your also getting ahead of me. But explain detached please.

    Planting seeds


    There is no point in the cultivation of a garden, if we are going to abandon it. The open mind that is left to it's own devices is sure to have all kinds of undesirables take root. So the answer is to plant seeds rather than letting chance take it's course. After all, there is no point in pulling weeds for the sake of pulling weeds. It is only because we want to grow specific seeds that we do so. Since we know how to care for our garden, we must now decide what it is that we want to grow there.

    There are as many ideals and concepts out there as there is knowledge. We must be careful in our decision since the seed will grow to yield fruit. Let us begin by planting seeds that will form the basis of a strong foundation. These seeds are not specific ideals nor are they general concepts. But reflect the very essence of the creative will. It is our goal to ensure that they become apparent to all around us in everything we do. Here are a few.

    Will. Without will there can be no success. When will takes root it forces out all doubt, instead of thinking that something can not be done, will simply sets out to achieve. It does not fear failure. Failure can only be a temporary set back. The man who dares to will only fails when he gives up. The one who has said that " if only this could be done then we would have this" can accomplish nothing unless they set out upon life's journey to achieve just that. Will power is the greatest adversary that man has and must be strengthened once again in the mind. Idleness wilts before the power of the will, and opposition becomes hot air. Strive to achieve.

    Humility. There is no force that drives man to accomplishment greater than pride. But false pride has set man back through ignorance. The father is proud of his sons achievements. The husband is proud for his wife, who has through pain and suffering brought forth new life. Pride is the badge of those who have lived their life's purpose, who have faced great odds and beaten them. This is true pride, not boastfulness or haughtiness. Within all people there are those who are great in deed and those who are not. But none can lay claim to superiority. Just as no man can claim to be all knowing. Such does not exist anywhere in Nature, there is only balance. Some men will always be victims of their environment, others will set out to become masters. The man that gathers great renown for himself in deed or thought needs never to boast. Accomplishment always speaks for itself.

    Honor. "Do you honor me? " said the father to his son. "I honor myself!" he boldly answered. To which the father replied, "As such, you honor me." We can not expect to be men of honor until we begin to see the honor in our own lives. The individual honors the group by honoring himself first and foremost. Honor does not ask for recognition but always gives it. Because he believes in the group he becomes the best man that he can. Always reaching to achieve what others deem impossible. Stand firm as an oak, and others will have no doubt in you.

    Perseverance. It is often enough to find that will alone will not achieve a thing, one must demonstrate courage to make it reality. Courage that disregards fear is nothing. But fear that is stifled by courage is discipline. Along with discipline must come tenacity, and resolve. The combined formula that always spells success. If you have set out to accomplish much in life, then your task will not be easy. If you can control the reins of your courage, you will not fail. Persevere to no end.

    Duty. The highest calling that man can have is to do his duty and to do it well. Your Creator has given you all the necessary tools to build. Don't just build but build to the utmost of your capability. Become the superior at everything you do. Whether you work in an iron factory or as a mechanic. Farmer or Doctor, learn your trade and excel in it. If you serve others, others will serve you. Find the glory in your work. Toil ceaselessly at what you want and you will want nothing. Your duty is to your Creator.

    Destiny. You were not put here upon this earth to bitch. Get up and do something. When corruption is evident all around you and degeneracy creeps in every shadow do not complain. Instead work to change yourselves first and all else will follow. Recovery and health will soon commence, like begets like. Maintain a desire to improve and always hold the health of your mind in the highest esteem. In the garden that is well maintained and healthy, weeds can find no place to root.

    These are some seeds that when developed will generate more of their kind. Develop these traits within yourself and demand them in your peers and you will have built a foundation that will endure. Concentrate your efforts locally, one layer at a time. By displacing the weeds you need not waste energy fighting them.
