The Shiva Pill

This new year consider taking the Shiva pill.
As you may know I practice a syncretic faith of Vedic Heathenism. So I see the aspect of the Sky Father and Godhead primarily found in Odin and Shiva-Ruda.

I feel Shiva-Rudra / Odin adoration represents the best for those who are seeking wisdom, strength, and self improvement. Especially for males and their Devi / Goddess counterparts show a deep understanding for females to which both sexes can learn and grow in their individual strength and in proper Dharma and morale compass.

Here is a list of posts I have made regarding my own journey and understanding of my path focusing on Shiva.

Indo-European Norse Will of Gaut

In Thanks to Jacob Grimm

Jacob (Ludwig Karl) Grimm was a German philologist, jurist, and folklorist. Him and his younger brother Wilhelm were known as the Brothers Grimm.
Often when his name is mentioned people think of the Grimm’s Fairytales which include various allegorical folk lore that the brothers learned in their travels and on their studies.

Until recently most of these tales would be taught to children of grade school and younger. Though with the current distain for Western culture that seems to be pervasive today I’m sure this isn’t the case.

That aside, I feel that often people think of the Brother’s Grimm and the fairytales and overlook the actual religious and linguistic impact on Germanic and Indo-European studies that Jacob Grimm had a direct impact on.

A major discovery by Grimm is called Grimm’s Law of linguistics which shows how Indo-European languages had a phonic shift over time resulting in words of similar origins sounding different. Much of his work was used to construct a more fuller understanding of Indo-European languages in general.

“Proto-Indo-European voiceless stops change into voiceless fricatives.
Proto-Indo-European voiced stops become voiceless stops.
Proto-Indo-European voiced aspirated stops become voiced stops or fricatives (as allophones).
This chain shift (in the order 3,2,1) can be abstractly represented as:

bʰ > b > p > f
dʰ > d > t > θ
gʰ > g > k > x
gʷʰ > gʷ > kʷ > xʷ”

More over he authored the Deutsches Wörterbuch which is considered the most comprehensive dictionary of Germanic languages ever made.

More over he wrote Deutsche Mythologie which was a book on philological, historical, folkloristic, and poetic aspects of the pre-Christian Germanic religion. In this he made open comparisons of Germanic Gods such as the different names for Thor (Donar, Thunor, etc). It was one of the first comparative writings that took seriously the Germanic faith or and form of Paganism as a religious and cultural experience.

While some of his studies may have been surpassed in the modern era. We owe a lot of our understanding and current approaches to the groundwork and scholarship that he had done before us.

If is for this we should thank him and give him more praise than we do.

Thank you Jacob Grimm for your hard work.

Hammer and Vajra Project Start!

Starting my new project off. Have tried so before. However now I do so with a renewed focus on life. Been getting off track and in my search the Gods have put forth a beacon of guiding light within the darkness the was closed around me. I see now the darkness for what it is, and the light for what it is. And how both need each other to exist. Thereby I forge my path forward guided by my ancestors but voyaging to the unknown for the sake of my family and kin. Life gives you problems, and there is a lot of falsehoods intermixed with the truth. In this modern age everyone is trying to sell you their angle. This causes problems for the souls of each and every one of us. The solution isn’t political. The solution is spiritual, metaphysical and physical alchemy put forth in a concoction that creates Gold within us that shines outwards too.
運命(さだめ)の鎖を断ち切り. “Cut the Chains of Fate” that this Empire and the manipulative people have placed on you. The true fate (Wyrd) is more karmatic. Weaved from spiritual conception but changed by our actions. #hammerandvajra
