Albert Bierstadt – Storm in the Mountains
Selections from Hans FK Gunther’s “Religious Attitudes of the Indo-Europeans“:
…it is unmistakably evident that Indo-European religiosity is not rooted in any kind of fear, neither in fear of the deity nor in the fear of death.
Fear could not arise because the Indo-European does not consider that he is the creature of a deity; he neither regarded himself as a “creature” nor did he comprehend the world as a creation – the work of a creative God with a beginning in time. To him the world was far more a timeless order, within which both Gods as well as men had their time, their place and their office.
Still less was a religious attitude possible here, which saw in man a slave under an all-powerful Lord God. The submissive and slavish relation of man to God is especially characteristic of the religiosity of the Semitic peoples. The names Baal, Moloch, Rabbat and others, all stress the omnipotence of the Lord God over enslaved men, his creatures, who crawl on their faces before him… In the Semitic language the word worship comes from its root abad, which means to be a slave.
In Christianity the conduct of the faithful before God is freely interpreted by the term humilis, and hence humility, meaning literally slave mind or serving the tribe, is demanded as the essence of religiosity. But this is non-Indo-European in outlook, an after-effect of oriental religiosity. Because he is not a slave before an omnipotent God, the Indo-European mostly prays not kneeling nor prostrated to earth, but standing with his eyes gazing upward and his arms stretched out before him.
As a complete man with his honour unsullied, the honest Indo-European stands upright before his God or Gods. No religiosity which takes something away from man, to make him appear smaller before a deity who has become all-powerful and oppressive, is Indo-European. No religiosity which declares the world and man to be valueless, low and unclean, and which wishes to redeem man to overearthly or superhuman sacred values, is truly Indo-European.
Indo-European religiosity is not slavery, it contains none of the implorings of a downtrodden slave to his all-powerful lord, but comprises rather the confiding fulfillment of a community comprising Gods and men.
For the Aryan man, the correct method of religious communication with the Gods is not that of prayer, but that of communion. And the best method for this is to stand before them, upright as a man, and as an ancestor of the Gods, with arms outstretched to the heavens and to our home in the stars.
The false Semitic religion of Judeo-Christianity that has been imposed upon our peoples for hundreds and thousands of years has reduced him to an embarrassing shadow of his former Self. We Aryans are of the Mountains and the stormy ridges of snow and ice and of the heavens, of Aldebaran; we are not desert-dwellers and we do not kneel on the floor in prayer; we do not beg, implore, wail, weep or suffer beneath our Gods as they do. Judeo-Christianity is a false (and indeed, falsified, as is elaborated upon in Hermann Wieland’s ‘Atlantis, Edda und Bibel’) religion that has turned legions of Aryans into snivelling, cowering, begging and suffering creatures… shadow-creatures and robotic messengers for the Judaic demiurge Jahovah, demon-lord of materialism and human-sacrifice.
The slave-mentality of Judeo-Christianity has therefore created in modern man the corresponding undesirable characteristics of a slave which had never before in history existed in Aryan stock: begging, weakness, bribery and underhandedness.
From H. R. Ellis Davidson’s Gods and Myths of Northern Europe:
Men knew that the gods whom they served could not give them freedom from danger and calamity, and they did not demand that they should. We find in the myths no sense of bitterness at the harshness and unfairness of life, but rather a spirit of heroic resignation: humanity is born to trouble, but courage, adventure, and the wonders of life are matters for thankfulness, to be enjoyed while life is still granted to us. The great gifts of the gods were readiness to face the world as it was, the luck that sustains men in tight places, and the opportunity to win that glory which alone can survive death.
To properly commune with the Gods is to re-connect in the fabric of time and space with your Ancestors. They look to you to continue the fabric of Noble Blood just as you look to them for the inspiration in the silver Seele and Vril !
Heil to the Ancient Ehrean Gods of Noble Blood !
