Mjöllnir, Þórshamar batters our ignorance
Þór ber tröll Þór batters trolls
Þór ber tröll
Þór batters trolls

Þór is our power in life. We find him inside  –   by transcending (nýsa niður (Hávamál)).
The power to destroy our ignorance, our tröll, is Mjöllnir.  We gain Mjöllnir by transcending (nýsa niður), and the skill in action to wield Mjöllnir.
We shall learn to understand what our myths and poems are conveying:
Understand the allegory and symbolic language of myths.
Mjöllnir is our divine means to rid ourselves of tröll (/ignorance);
Þór is our inner might and main, endurance, and our knowing the purpose of life. See all the electricity-reference in Þór and his things.

1 min 29 sec pitch for Þór:


The text for (the above) 1 minute Youtube-pitch: Þór
Þór is our inner strength – might and main. We should trust our might and main, and use it for our evolution, the purpose of life.
Our Mjöllnir is our divine power to batter our ignorance, our tröll, who deprive us of seeing Truth. We now let in the rays of Goddess Sun, Sól, the goddess of enlightenment.
Stagnation in tröll is our unseen enemy of whom we shall rid ourselves.
Þórs daughter, his sons, his gear, and his servants, are worldly powers, electricity, and our great inherent power for evolution.
Myths convey Truth. Myths are not history. They are a way of giving knowledge and wisdom to men who are pure enough to understand.
Be careful _not_ to believe in the letter. Personifications are a trap: we take personified powers for guys and dolls walking on earth. Mjöllnir is not a hammer. Mjöllnir carries out our might and main in the most quiet and still innermost. We should believe in our might and main, and use it for our spiritual evolution.

More to ponder on:

* tröll is, in all ways, terribly negative a term. Has a negative connotation in many languages. Could be, according to etymology, from Sanskrit stem dru2, run, flow, even carrying the meaning of: run into as attacking what is of a higher nature. We do not know if that meaning got conveyed into our tröll or not.

  • what does it mean to go Eastwards to batter trolls?
  • are many things and/or attributes belonging to Þór which give the idea or connection to electricity?
  • is Þór a strong man holding a hammer? if no, then what is he?
  • can we find Þórs name in a week-day, in a planet, in the human brain?
    if yes, then which ones?
  • can personifications lead us astray?
    if yes then how and why?
    * has this anything to do with illiteracy on allegory?
  • does everyone understand the real meaning of Edda poem Þrymskviða?
    — the ancient Icelandic/OldNorse word melðra† -–if looked up in dictionary of etymology– is as mjöll mjöl mala, milled by turning the quern to grind, becoming: to fling Mjöllnir to crush ignorance;
    * ignorance has no place; it should not be;
    * tröll are our lack of seeing;
    * Mjöllnir always returns when flung, as it circles
  • why would Freyja and Þrymur not possibly unite in a marriage?
  • does Þrymur realize what he asked for, or is he only in love?
  • could Loki be mankind?
    * did Loki not realize what he asked for from Freyja in poem Þrymskviða?
    *Loki fucks things up all the time, then tries to amend when all is going down the drain – can we see ourselves here?
  • is Sigyn our true friend even if we are stupid and immature creatures?
    * always understand meaning of names
    * Sig is most likely sigur, victory, -yn is said to be vin, friend
    * Sanskrit loka means a world, see also Icelandic ljúka, loka, ljúka upp (finish, close, open up) reminding of cycles
    * and in that context connotation to zodiac
    * Loki’s day is Icelandic Laugardagur, English Saturday
  • is Þór red-headed / is his hair red? (a stupid question)

Til umhugsunar:

* tröll er eitthvert mjög svo neikvætt fyrirbrigði, á sér neikvæða samsvörun í mörgum málum, en gæti, orðsifjalega séð, verið komið úr sanskrít, af stofni drú2, hlaupa, renna, og getur þar jafnvel haft merkinguna að ráðast gegn því sem æðra er, hvort sem það hefur nú ratað í okkar tröll eður ei;

  • hvað er það að fara í austurveg að berja tröll?
  • er eitthvað í Þór sem fær okkur til að detta í hug að tengja hann rafmagni?
  • er Þór sterkur karl með hamar?
    ef nei, hvað er hann þá?
  • finnst Þór í nafni reikistjörnu, nafni vikudags, í mannsheila?
    ef já, þá hverjum?
  • geta persónugervingar krafta verið afvegaleiðandi?
    ef já, þá hvers vegna? – kemur þetta ólæsi á launsögn við?
  • skilja allir launsögn Þrymskviðu?
  • flettið orðinu melðra† upp í orðsifjabók, berið saman mjöll mjöl mala, og það að snúa kvörn í hringi, og sveifla Mjöllni –sem fer ekki neitt, nú eða kemur alltaf aftur til þess manns sem notar hann
  • hvers vegna geta Freyja og Þrymur ekki giftst?
  • er hugsanlegt að Loki tákni mannkynið? (-klúðra, og reyna að redda-?)
  • er Sigyn tryggur vinur okkar þótt við séum vitlaus og vanþroska? (Sig sigur, -yn, vin)
  • er Þór rauðhærður? (asnaleg spurning)
