Thought and Action

By Ron McVan

It is idleness, not labor, that disgraces.” ~ Hesiod

Nature abhors beggars and idlers. Nothing can remain still and idle in the Gods’ all-wise order of creation. To live life is to be incessantly active. One must either go ahead and evolve, or be swept backward by the forces of Nature. In the first case, there is progress through individual effort; in the second case, there is degradation through lack of effort, inactivity and indifference.

All living forms are creators within specific limitations—-but humans, by their soul, ego and free will are, comparatively speaking, gods of the universe, and have the exclusive ability to create anything which they are able to conceive—whether it be beneficial to life or destructive to life. In essence, each man is wholly responsible for his own life and it’s attendant conditions, as well as bearing the responsibility for living conditions of their entire race and mankind as well.

The thinker must let every step of the way come to him as he proceeds. Being is not a given way laid out like a road, but is shown forth by the relationship discovered anew at every step as he moves along the path.” ~ Martin Heidegger

Man cannot change his past, as it is engraved forever in his record of life as a memory. The present is a reflection and result of the effects of past thoughts and actions, and probably modified by his free will and other influences during the present “now”. Future courses of life, although determined in a generalized way because of the effects of the past and present actions, words and thoughts (karma), seem to be open to a free will determination of why, how and what we would like to accomplish in life.

Through the ages numerous persons and institutions have capitalized on man’s ignorance of his former and future lives, thus blinding him through their teachings and dogmas to beliefs which have no scientific or rational support. These beliefs have made a large class of people into automata, and followers of ideas of others. This manner of leadership of people is detrimental to the iron law of natural evolution.

There is nothing to be gotten for nothing and there is no such thing as chance in the universe”

The upwardly evolving man must consistently strive towards perfection in all things. To think is to live and to exist, life without thinking is to be less than an animal. To the enlightened individual the invisible threshold separating the awakened man from the unconscious, everyday world of the living dead is clearly discernable.

The road of great efforts can lead us to success, happiness and fulfillment; whereas the road of least resistance ultimately leads to perpetual discomfort, defeat and misery. Everyone chooses the road they will take. A person’s freedom or imprisonment in the material world, therefore, is dependent upon his motivating ideas. Freed through living ideas, his consciousness dissolves iron chains and soars beyond the mightiest bastions of stone and earth.

Once awakened, one cannot return to the former ways of unconscious life. To do so would be to acknowledge utter personal failure within a pointless and futile reality. At the outset there may be immediate discomforts which will be unavoidable, such as alienation by friends and family who are incapable of comprehending one’s evolving changes, both inwardly and outwardly. It is important to remember that only those who accept the essential you, and not the outer mask (what they want you to be), are your true friends. Real friendship, real love, is never perplexed, never qualifies, never rejects, never demands. It replenishes, by grace of restoring unlimited circulation. It burns, because it knows the true meaning of sacrifice. It is is life illumined. Define yourself or be defined! Live your convictions! Do not expect results without exerting the effort. Dare to be real! Dare to be yourself!

Withdraw into yourself and look and if you do not find yourself beautiful yet, act as does the creator of a statue that is to be made beautiful; he cuts away here, he smoothes there, he makes his line lighter, this other purer, until a lovely face has grown upon his work. So do you also: cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is overcast, labor to make all one glow of beauty, and never cease from chiseling your statue until there shall shine out of you from it the God-like splendor of virtue, until you shall see the perfect goodness established in the stainless shrine.” ~ Plotinus

Man thinks not with his brain, but through his brain. The mind does have limits to what it can absorb, retain and recall, so a conscious effort must be made in being very selective with the idea which is processed into it. People spend vast amounts of time and money on scholastic knowledge, which more often than not is never actualized into anything substantial. Further, when the soul departs from the physical body, all this accumulated unassimilated information is also gone without any real benefit to the soul.

Of all the arts and sciences, life is the greatest and most profound. It takes many years to train a physician or a lawyer in the particulars of his profession, but it requires many lives of experience and conscious awareness to bring a human being into the full manifestation of his own perfected being. In order to be a successfully evolved being, a man must study the laws which govern his development, then apply those laws to every aspect of his living. Wisdom is a universal medicine, and the only remedy for ignorance which is the foremost sickness of mankind.

Clear images of definite objectives are the seed ideas of future manifestations. Yet these must be seen as actual realities in the living present. The world everyone inhabits is the world which is formed by a collective mental imagery of past and living lives. The entire universe of forms and experience has been created, in essence, as a thought form, and lies potentially ready for manifestation to either grosser or higher forms. Since thoughts are seeds for action then it follows that scattered thinking makes for scattered activity. Once you recognize the difference between the map and the territory, i.e. your ideas about something and the thing itself, then it is possible to increase your conceptual intelligence by being aware of your thoughts as thoughts. Since the “mind” is rather a slippery entity to define, look to your thoughts and dreams as a way of understanding your mind. Whosoever understands metaphor, then governs the mind. In the end it does not matter how much we know as much as what we have done with what we know. We must resolve to take control of our destinies and to enact the will of the one, which is our true will, (Hamingja), the God-Self.

Imagination is not an escape from the world of fact. To say that a stone is an altar, or that fire represents a Deity, is not an escape from reality; it is an amplification of the insight into the experiential value of the fact.” ~ Dr. E Grahm Howe

Every generation of a race faces its own problems, some left behind for us by our ancestors, some newly created. The last half of the 20th century has produced more problems than any of the thousand years of previous history combined. We have grossly neglected the wisdom, culture and spirituality of the Western World and now as a nation divided we walk the tightrope of a very possible extinction of our entire species in the very near future.

The blind-sided preoccupation for temporal wants has left our ethnic soul famishing. As a race we have become rudderless, drifting through an atmosphere that is growing thinner and emptier. The minds of our children have become vacuums filled with media trivia and politically incorrect learning, our entire value system and ethnic traditions have been left in tatters. We have long since drifted from the “Nine Noble Virtues of Wotanism” which are: Courage, Truth, Honor, Fidelity, Discipline, Hospitality, Industriousness, Self-Reliance and Perseverance.

To meet this condition, which prevails throughout the length and breath of our eroding Western World; to stimulate a deeper interest, quicken a latent appreciation and facilitate the use of the dwindling periods of freedom that remain for self-improvement; this is a primary aim and area of concern for Wotanists, for Druids for Euro Pagans worldwide. Grounded in the roots of our indigenous folk, heritage, and spirituality; we tread a wonderful life fulfilling path of knowledge not found in today’s “Public Fool (school) System Institutions”. The Nature based spiritual path of our ancestors is not designed for entertainment or for the intellectually curious, it is a path of consciousness for developing insight into the mystery of life….to gain spiritual, folk-ethnic and individual understanding….to re-establish our tribal codes of conduct and to fortify our unity as a people with concern for our heritage, for our future and the future of our children. To think rightly is an indispensible condition of acting rightly. The compulsion to seek freedom of one’s own individuality, community and the species is not new; on the contrary, it is as old as human life itself.

No easy hope or lies, Shall bring us to our goal, But iron sacrifice, Of body, will, and soul” ~ Rudyard Kipling

Today, the whole artificial edifice, laboriously constructed by the one world Universalist mind-set, is crumbling to ruins before our eyes, cities without a soul….temples of doom! Take a real good look around you….It is failing at every single level! No hypothetical social contract devised by avaricious world cabals, greedy bankers and industrial exploiters, “The Power Elite”, will never furnish the necessary solutions for meeting the essential needs of mankind, Nature, and the very planet which we live and depend for our survival. The existing system is a ravenous cannibal that feeds upon itself at the expense of human life, freedom, and the dwindling limited vitals of Nature. The measure of a sound and healthy society is that which is bound by common ancestry, heritage and the indestructible ties of blood, with a common goal for the future and this applies to all races. Those who have made a concerted study of ancient history understand that the decline of every great nation begins at that very point when the indigenous culture, traditions and natural D.N.A. instincts are abandoned.

Our future, our entire existence as a people, depends on the combined conscious and directed force of Thought and Action that we formulate in the now of our life as a proud people united! The beginnings of a Golden Age! Not just some utopean pipe dream but the real thing! We need only start with the right and essential plan of Thought and Action to set the cornerstones of an intelligent and wholesome society into reality! All great things can start from small beginnings! Everything starts from “Thought and Action”! But first.. WE MUST HAVE UNITY!

NEVER GIVE UP!

The world is asleep, has the spirit gone dead?
Feeding off fear? Living in dread?
We long for a hope, we yearn for a dream,
just out of reach, or so it may seem…

Great goals need only, motivation and drive,
so hopeless is the man living only to survive!
To live out your world, in your enemies thought,
is to shame all the battles, that your ancestors fought!

Our forebears may be gone but their spirit remains near!
And they beckon to the living, fight on, and fight on without fear!
For when armies and tyrants, want to empty your cup,
fight like hell for your victory, but never give up!
