When people hear the word heathen they begin to associate bad things with it almost automatically. Well, I’m here to tell you that not all Heathens are not bad people. Those who practices Asatru are commonly known as Heathens. What’s Asatru? Asatru is a Norse reconstruction religion. Think about the Vikings and their gods. Those who practice Asatru try to follow the paths of our ancestors and honor them in all ways possible. Our Gods – Odin, Freyja, Thor, etc – they’re our ancestors too. So when we worship them, we’re worshiping our ancestors as well. So next time someone says their Heathen, don’t be so quick to judge. We’re actually good people, open minded, and very family oriented.
Experiencing the Sacred
What do I as a Pagan believe? I don’t mean to evade the question but my spiritual path isn’t so much about believing as it is about experiencing and doing. How I experience the Sacred and what do I do as a result.
I experience the Sacred through the cycle of the seasons. I meet with the Gods while walking in the green spaces, while working in my garden and in ritual circle both alone, with my wife and with my covenmates. As a result, I recycle, do acts of kindness and work magick.
Deeds not creeds. This I believe. This I do.
