    Do You Feel That the Gods Are a Positive Influence on Your Life?

    I personally think they have made me a better person. When I was a Christian, I admit I was a burden on my family and kinsmen. Now, my relationship is far better, regardless of faith.

    Absolutely.

    They've made me stronger and better able to support and defend myself in daily life through the virtues they champion, the words passed to us in the Edda, and the personal dealings through dreams and pathworking.

    They help me through the night especially. When I sit back to reflect on my past, the present and my future. Whether it is the moon, the stars or a candle to take my focus, they help me understand what was important / unimportant for the days.

    I'd like to add that the Elves, Giants and Dwarves also help keep myself in check. They help guide me to which rocks should I or should I not walk behind, which parts of the forest should I respect the most and avoid. I often feel the Giants especially watch me as I stand alone in the forest, just out of sight.

    DEFINITELY !

    Since i am a heathen i am much more centered and have finally reached as sense of calmness and happyness in my life. Now i feel a deep connection with my ancestors and with the nature around me. I look much more positive on my life. I think the best way to describe it, is that, as an atheist, I have always felt lost and felt like life blew me around like a leaf in the wind. But thanks to the god i have no found a place in life. It is like my soul has grown roots that anchor me in a way, but without restricting myself. I can still let my soul fly, but now it is of out of my own free will, and i can choose where i want to fly to. It is really hard to describe what i feel, and those words are the best way i can describe it, though they sound pretty confusing.

    Being an atheist i also always had the feeling that something in my life is missing, and now i have the feeling that i have found the missing part, and am finally complete. It is like on of my souls was missing, a part of my being, of myself, and the gods helped me to find it again. It is incredibly hard to describe something for which we simply lack the right words to describe it ! All i can do is offer metaphors, which can only describe certain aspects of the things i want to describe, but never the thing as such, in its completeness. Does that make sense to you ?
    There won't be humans in 500 years. Enough people choke themselves when they jerk off we gave it a name. We ain't a species made to last.

    Judging by it´s name common sense must once have been a pretty common thing. When and why did that change, so it became the rare treasure it is today???
