12 Yule Þorri Gói

About our ancient, meaningful terms and concepts – of which we might not have thought;
We should know them.
We need _not_ go for newer man-inventions of holydays;
We own the ancient and meaningful ones.

Pitch for yulewinter-solstice – all our cycles 1 min 33 sec:


The text for 1 minute pitch yule – winter-solstice – all our cycles (above):
12  yule – winter-solstice – all our cycles

Delightful to find all the cycles in our Norse/Germanic mythology. Everything is evolving, turning, cycling  — and carries us with it. We are not only being cared for, but also wagged to and fro and in cycles. Óðinn is Jólnir at yule, rides over the sky to chase away wights of cold and darkness. This is the promise of Nature to wake up again and again to care for us.
Every symbol, every bed-time story, every naïve term, has a meaning much deeper than we spot. Even if we have heard them over and over again, we never fathomed their inner meaning. We are brought us in superficial views and values only. Taught some surface all worldly things and phenomena. Even if some claim it to be spiritual, it might be talk only about what really is spirituality. We should enjoy the wights of the seasons, but we might also give it a thought to understand what they stand for. We should know their origin — and how they changed through the sometimes dark centuries.

More to ponder on:

* dorri is the ram þorri, and gói a cow, zodiac signs ram and taurus
* how do our ancient Norse names of months connect to the sky, zodiac signs, and our seasons?
* does their meaning when understood indicate some replacement of them?
* how did the meaning get off place here in the North?
* and then what happened in this context in Rome/southern Europe?
* do we admit circadian rhythms and seasons to influence our physiology?
* what do all sun-gods have in common – whatsoever their name?
* could our jólasveinar, yule-boys, be our forefathers in disguise?
—  if yes, why would they have to be disguised?
* the red colour of Santa’s dress comes from a mushroom that wizards used.
* can a yule-present tell that someone loves us?
* is it more delightful to give than to accept?
* what does Þjóðvitnir (in his present kali-yuga business) have to say about yule-presents?
* Þjóðvitnir has here the role of that which happens to us during dark ages, that which consumes our wits, our knowledge, and hides from us our inner divine power;
Þjóðvitnir should come back to his role, his dharma, of golden ages: chant wits, knowledge, and inner divine power
* do you know the story of how superficial values can be stolen, but the core of joy of yule cannot be taken from us?
— if yes:  * did the Roman Empire steal the core and leave the wrappings?
—  if yes, was that their smart strategy so that we would not notice the change?

Til umhugsunar:

*dorri er hrútur, þorri, og gói er kýr –  hrúts- og nautsmerki,
* hvernig tengjast mánaðanöfnin okkar fornu himinhvolfinu og árstíðunum?
* segir merking gömlu mánaðanafnanna okkur eitthvað um tilflutning á mánaðanöfnum?
* hvernig brenglaðist merkingin hér norðurfrá þegar ný áramót urðu til?
* og hvað gerðist þá í Suður-Evrópu í sambandi við mánaðanöfnin?
* gerum okkur grein fyrir árstíðum og eyktum og áhrifum náttúruferla okkur
* hvað eiga öll sólguð sameiginlegt, hverju nafni sem þau nú kunna að nefnast?
* skyldu jólasveinarnir okkar vera forfeður okkar í dulargervi?
— ef já, þá hvernig gæti staðið á því?
* (rauði liturinn í búningi Santa Klaus kemur frá sveppum sem fornir vitkar notuðu mikið)
* er til rauður jurtalitur á Íslandi? kunnið þið fatalitun?
* getur jólapakki táknað væntumþykju?
* er sælla að gefa en þiggja?
* hvaða skoðun hefur Þjóðvitnir okkar á jólagjöfum?
–en Þjóðvitnir leikur hér tákn myrkra alda, glepjandi vitsmuni okkar,
*Þjóðvitnir ætti þess í stað að gala vit og þekkingu og guðlegt afl, sem er hans dharma á öldum uppljómunar–
* Trölli stal yfirborðinu en inntakið var áfram,
* stálu Rómverjar inntakinu og skyldu yfirborðið eftir áfram?
