Plans: take it easy…bathe in the afterglow of last night’s festivities
8th Day of Yule – Remembering the Noble Virtue of Discipline
Our Way is not an easy way. In many aspects, we fly in the face of the society around us. Stay Tru to the ideals of Heathenry as they unfold in your life. Be diligent in the study of your beliefs. Stay Tru to the gods and goddesses of the Northern Germanic peoples.
A.M. Prayer: Sunday, we pray both to Sonne/Sunna and Paltar/Baldr, lighting a yellow candle (symbolic of the Sun):
Greetings to you Sonne, Lamp of Uuodan/Odin: newly risen! Hail to you who has shown on all our ancestors, who shines on us, and who will shine on our decedents yet unborn. Share with us some of your light, your energy, your power, so that we might better fight our battles and attain our goals. SONNE/SUNNA HAIL!!
Blameless Paltar/Baldr, shining god, let your goodness and your reconciliation smooth our paths on Earth. When our days here are over, light up death’s darkness with the promise of rebirth. Help is to avoid evil, and seek the good. Inspired by you, we will keep our reputations spotless that our lives be proclaimed a victory of the Spirit, and out leaving this life a tragedy. PALTAR/BALDR HAIL!
Born of Fire, born of ice,
Life is lived at such a price.
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
A.M. Rune: Ehwaz (R): The relationship of a horse and rider out of control, disharmony, quarrelsome tendencies, mistrust, betrayal, disruption of relationships. Offset this with extra precautions.
Outcome: Must be from without because it’s CERTAINLY not from within…
The entire morning was spent just lying around.
Nothing worthy of note happened today. It’s been a peaceful, easy Sunday (now I KNOW there’s a song in that one somewhere) not the Ehwaz indicated…
P.M. Prayer: Heimdall:
HEAR ME HEIMO/HEIMDALL, the genetic link between gods and humankind. Your keen eyes and sharp ears guard the world of the gods. As you stand so alert for the approach of giants, remind us that we must also watch for our own encroaching evil. Let weakness, cowardice, lies and dishonor be barred from the Rainbow Bridge leading to our heart’s abode. Be a model for vigilance, that we may rise to the best that is in us, and someday join the Noble Gods in their shining home. HAIL HEIMO/HEIMDALL!!
P.M. Rune: none
