WOTANSVOLK MEDITATIONS

WOTANSVOLK MEDITATIONS ))))))))))))) by Ron McVan
"Meditation is done in silence. By it, we renounce our narrow individuality and expatiate into that which is infinite. Only in the sacredness of inward silence does the soul truly meet the secret hiding God. The strength of resolve which
afterwards shapes life, and mixes itself with action, is fruit of those sacred, solitary moments. There is a divine depth in silence. We meet God alone."
.................F.W. Robertson
In the schools of the religious way a strong emphasis on obedience is often demanded before anything else, that is, full and unquestionable submission, although without understanding. In the spiritual path of Wotanism, understanding is the first requirement before anything else. Results of effort are always proportional to understanding. Even practitioners who possess a wide knowledge of Wotanism may often find themselves lacking the direction of spiritual communion with their ethnic folk Gods and the 'Higher Self' (hamingja) which they are seeking. The practice of meditation has long served as a direct means of projecting our inner soul outward towards the higher divinity realms.
The spiritual world is the sphere of "causation", the material world is the sphere of "effects", while the intellectual realm or soul-world, is the sphere of "meditation". Our deepest thoughts play a large part of who we are, what we become, and where we are going. For just these reasons alone the practice of meditation should be a vital part of our everyday life. Beyond these essentials, meditation also keeps us plugged in with the higher powers without which life serves little purpose other than fleeting sensations.
Concentration must not be confused with meditation. The former implies an exercise of the will; the mind centers its powers on an object or idea until it yields its essence. Meditation on the other hand does not require any foreseeable harnessing of the will. Wotanist Meditation is something that emerges from a cessation of conscious thought. The God Absolute or "Logos" exists without as also within us as do our ethnic Gods. Since we are not cut off from the order of the universe, but embody it on every level, one way to experience the harmony of all that is divine is to turn within through meditation, and attentively listen to the silent voice from the center.

To gain the clearest insight into the practice of Wotanism, requires the developing of one's own natural ethnic based instincts and much study of the spiritual ritual, customs and traditions of our pagan ancestors. Every successful civilization is guided by a living mythological vision that imparts unity to the varied forms of cultural expression. Wotanism is a religion of the blood; do not let others lead you astray in thinking that it is bigoted to honor and respect the voice and soul of your race ancestors and ethnic Gods. Make a practice to meditate at least once a day. Meditating may seem somewhat uncomfortable and awkward at first in that we have become so distracted by the lower conscious brash materialistic society in which we live our daily lives. Precisely, Wotanist meditation is a means to provide open channels in the mind that are not often obtainable by other methods. Man offers himself to our gods of the folk. He stands before them like a canvas before the painter or marble before the sculptor.
It is through meditation that our most unlimited powers are obtained, marvels and miracles are worked, the highest spiritual knowledge is acquired and union with the great gods of our folk and the "All High Creator God" are eventually gained. The practice of meditation is the surest way to establish a sound, mental framework and effective working relationship with the higher realms. The practice of meditation should not become a rote process of repetition where nothing new and substantial is gained. We should not sit there counting our rosery beads in a mindless trance reciting a worn-out memorized prayer. Meditation is a process of ascension of the mind and spirit. It should bring us to an understanding of certain relations of a still unknown nature between psychological and organic process. Meditation demonstrates and proves the profound and objective importance of spiritual activities which can unlock new and stimulating worlds of thought. One must keep the mind open and undistracted while practicing Wotanist meditation; it becomes easier as one becomes familiar with the process. Perfect silence is the best atmosphere. If you cannot find a quite space then try using ear plugs. If that is not handy even wet tissue paper pushed into the ear works just as well. The Runes are another excellent resource to assist us in our meditations.
The Euro-tribes are a productive, creative and spiritual people. The same blood of our ancient ancestors courses through our veins and hearts today as it has for millennia past. Our indigenous gods and heroic forebears are what we ourselves strive to become, and ultimately exceed, in the upward development of our being. The more we focus and meditate, the more their spirit becomes a part of our own spirit. As our ideas formulate and become real and tangible, our will and our destiny will do likewise. The path of Wotanism is fundamentally based upon strength of character, courage and ethical fortitude, combining the highest regard of our own people and the planet upon which we live. Man is the only creature who has the power to consciously understand the universal harmonies of nature---yet, ironically, he is the only one capable of destroying the entire planet. It is hoped that those who study the Wotanist meditations will take the time to develop a thorough understanding of this ancient and timeless practice.
It is vitally essential that we realize the value of Wotanism as Aryans and that this value remains a bonding element which fires the will to self-preservation and the indomitable force and creative spirit of our Folk and our Gods. The return to Wotanism is the return to one's own ethnic soul and the re-establishment of our roots as a people. Our ethnic Gods serve us as guides and mentors in our life journey through Midgard. A Wotanist meditation might be expressed in this fashion here as an example:
I listen to the voice of Wotan as he speaks within me. It is this voice of eternity that ever guides me to the Absolute. This voice of truth and strength leads me unerringly along the paths of my life. Deep within me in the perfect core of my being stands the Yggdrasil World Tree, an immobile universe where all things and all law lie revealed. I reach within to this place of quietness and harken there to the voice of my ancestors dwelling within me and I dwelling from them. I close my eyes and sense this living, breathing universe. Here I am one with all of my people, past, present and future, with nature and the extended universe without. I move in accordance with the divine law. From here all the limitless powers of creation are with me and I am a part of it. I see about me the thoughts of all mankind and the correct answers to all questions. That which is good among these I accept; that which is not I ignore, for my concern is only with truth and the divine plan ordained through my Gods and the all high creator which is the perfect good and the expanding of all inner and outer consciousness. I know that I am fulfilling the fondest wish of the Absolute. It is my Gods who prompt and guide me to understand the highest powers. As I believe in my heart, so shall it be done unto me; as this is the law of life and of living. Each day is another step on my journey to a oneness with my Gods and noble ancestors. I am at peace within myself here in Midgard. I do not seek---I know. I do not strive---I am guided.....the divine Wotan spirit working above, around and through me.............
Relative to meditation is a ritual process known as the incantation. The words "incantation" and "enchant" are both derived from the Latin "cantare" (sing) and "charm" is from Latin "carmen" (song). The element of singing or charming is magically important because it means that the words are put together deliberately. In the same way as an orator or poet depends on the power of well placed words to convey impressive ideas and to sway his audience, so the Godi or Sejdmadr (Wotanist male or female priest) have their incantations. Likewise the suppliant with his prayers, although fulfilling different needs, makes deliberate use of compelling language, both engaging in specific rhythmic sound and profound meaning. The body itself is a mass of vibration----a musical instrument.
The essential principle of the incantation is the use of sonorous, rhythmical, rhetorical words which are not spoken flatly, but chanted. This is done with steady rising intensity as the ritual proceeds. The whole process contributes to a rising state of intense excitement and self-intoxication in which the Godi or Sejdmadr feels confident that the words uttered are charged with invincible power and are penetrating the higher realms.

When incantations have fixed formulae, or are accompanied by prescribed postures and gestures, or are associated with real or symbolic sacrifice, an element of magical power raising, if not always present may at least be attainable. Incantations do not change our gods, they change us. They deepen insight, increase intuitive perception, expand consciousness and transform personality.

In modern times the phrase "great chain of being" is often referred to as away of viewing the long ongoing connection with our ancestors. Through the invocations we unlock direct channels to fuse our own thoughts and being with that of the non-corporal ancestral spirits that still greatly influence our spirits in todays world.
No man can comprehend more than the courage and imagination of his own mind and heart can grasp. To understand this world view of inter- connectedness in the depths of one's race and soul is a somewhat different matter for modern man. It often requires a philosophic tendency and eclectic research into the inter-connected ancestral and mythological ties that form the very ethnicity unity and heritage of a people. The Aryan gods, goddesses, the demi-gods, the heroes, Titans and nature spirits of good and evil are all part of the great pageant of eternity. These are the elements which unite our collective consciousness as a folk and ultimately lead us back to The Godhead, the source of all creation. From the point of light within the Mind of God let light stream forth into the minds of those who seek the light. Let Light descend on Midgard and seal the door where ignorance and darkness dwells!

It is essential to realize that every cycle in life turns in interconnecting circles. The wheel of life, the circuit of energy, encompasses us in its universal arms and, dwarfed as we may be by its greatness, yet all potential lies within our reach because of its envelopment. Each hour, day, week, month, year, century and millennium represents a living cycle in the ever-turning wheel of time and space throughout the universe. From the great wheel, all things turn and return, but it takes the conscious right deeds of our people working together with the interconnectedness to our gods, all in harmony with nature, to ensure the continuance of right order in the world. Again we see the need for the harmonious workings of our ethnic gods and nature alike. All of the gods are as dependant upon us for their continuing existence as we are upon them for our being, strength and direction. All forms of Nature and man spring from the harmonic matrix that resides in the mind of The Great Logos that we know as God.
"How long will you tread the circling tracks of mind Around your little self and petty things? A seer, a strong creator is within, This transient earthly being, if he wills, Can fit his act to a transcendent scheme."
