Text in the 1 min pitch for Þór (above):
01 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.
