The world and all it contains, both seen and unseen stands with mankind in a state of consubstantiation. Our ancestors understood this as fact, making their worldview one of total acceptance. Life was hard but good. Prosperity honestly earned was good. Sex too was considered good. In everything they did the Gods, Desir/Matronae were ever present, not separated from the rest of the world. Monotheism with its world rejecting view separates reality.
Born in the harsh desert climate, Monotheism was destined to offer a bleak outlook. It still does. The single God creeds offer salvation if the person shuns the world. This worldview was foreign to Europeans, especially those of the north. It still is today and to all of European descent.
A world accepting view does not shun anything that is wholesome and good. This includes the divine, which is part of the total consubstantiation. The Gods did not leave us. We left them. By remembering them and honoring them we give them rebirth in our total consciousness. We rebuild and renew.
However, this renewal is not a journey back to the past or for that matter living as our ancestors did. It is a rebuilding of what we know what was into what is applicable and needed for us today. This also means that we must add what is needed. It means we must adapt and overcome our reluctance to do so, thinking that we will cheapen Heathenry. It will not. What is truly heilige demands that we do so.
