Ásatrú, Heathenry, Paganry, Forni Siður, are terms for our pre-christian wisdom, that is preserved in symbolism and allegory, which we now rediscover and understand anew.
All about purpose of human life-spans.
Rather a cognition, even intuition, than some parrot-learning and literalism.
Myths happen here and now, again and again, and are about us.
Vor forni siður (our ancient tradition) is termed as:
* ásatrú (ása-trú, true to, or trust in æsir (our gods)), belief as beloved (the original meaning, not: blind stubborn belief in);
Note: I am not sure when we started to use kuþ / guð (god/gods), for our æsir and vanir. Kuþ/guð is a neuter word (not masculine), nominative singular and nominative plural guð.
* heathenry (heathen originally a term to debase pagans, now proudly used), heath, a moor, or highlands, upland;
* paganry – pagan from bhagavan, one blossoms into diversity, or one becomes many (quot. Chintaiyalar Peravai, Tamil (research, youtube)), in singularity diversity blossoms;
* forni siður, our ancient traditions (plural, yes, as our traditions and pagan religions are diverse – and (luckily) no orþodox!).
(–Note: I do not like –ism, and –ists, as we are free, and there is no “only right” anything to cling to–).
And we shall distinguish between þeokrasi and þeosofi.
Note: Heathenry is completely useless as a tool to dominate.
Norse-Germanic ancient religions/traditions will now be understood anew in their full glory.
