Yesterday I posted an essay, The Ordering of the Heavens and believed it to be a good post. As my luck would have it, I made certain assumptions; I forgot that not all of my readers are Heathen and/or some are new to Heathenry/Asatru. And, some confusion arose. So below is a clarification/explanation for those folks who need one.
In the realm of Orlog, Wyrd, Our Words and Deeds we deserve what we get. Within this very same realm, if indeed there is an afterlife, we earn/have earned the particular destination and our "special place" in it. There is no other way around this point. Therefore, every man should strive for this goal:
Do not waste any of your time pining away over some glorious or beautiful afterlife; that's a Monotheistic thing. Make every minute in your life count for the Good. Always strive to do your best for family, folk, tribe, and community. If you do this well enough, at your wake people will only have one thing to say - He was a good man, and we will remember his deeds. This Northern Soul, is a true after life that we can make for ourselves.
