Some Thoughts on Yule

StonehengeSunset3,344 words

Yule is the midwinter festival celebrated by my ancestors and by Germanic neo-pagans today. Midwinter is a time when much of nature seems to die or to depart. The trees are stripped of their leaves. The birds abandon us, flying off to warmer climes. Bears, badgers, chipmunks, and squirrels hibernate. Water freezes over. The earth is covered in ice and snow, so that nothing can grow. The air is so chilled that when we are out in it for too long, death becomes something tangible, and we rush inside.  Read more …

What NewGrange Hall Means for Us

newgrange4Where should we honor the ancestral gods?

Tacitus wrote of the ancient Germans, “they think it proper neither to confine their gods within walls nor to give them any likeness of human appearance: they consecrate groves and glades and call by the names of gods that intangible quality they see with the eye of reverence alone.”[1]  Read more …

Survol de l’anthropologie germanique

Qu’est-ce que la nature humaine ? C’est peut-être bien la plus importante question philosophique, parce que la philosophie elle-même est singulièrement humaine, et que les « problèmes » philosophiques se présentent seulement aux êtres humains. Tous les grands philosophes ont des réponses explicites ou implicites à cette question.  Read more …

The Metaphysics of Indo-European Tripartition, Part 6
F. W. J. Schelling & Indo-European Triparition

4,492 words

Friedrich Schelling, 1775–1854

Friedrich Schelling, 1775–1854

Part 6 of 6

1. Schelling’s Influences: The Christian Trinity and Jacob Boehme

I turn, finally, to a different Indo-European tradition, that of German Idealism of the 19th century. I include this material so as to show the perennial character of Indo-European thought. One could argue that the entire history of Western (and Indian) philosophy is a long, unconscious attempt to recollect the wisdom known “directly” by our Indo-European ancestors.  Read more …

Tripartition & the Gunas

Shiva the Destroyer1,714 words

Part 5 of 6

1. The Emergence of the Gunas from Brahman

We are obviously dealing with three principles which manifest themselves in different forms.

1,289 words

Part 4 of 6

1. Universal, Particular, and Individual

Before we turn to the level of the purely ideal and transcendent, our highest level of abstraction, I will speak briefly about how tripartition displays itself in the way in which we attempt to embody the ideal in thought and language.

First of all, there are three fundamental types of noun: the universal, the particular, and the singular. Read more …
