   Hávamál vísa 138 o.áfr. er viđfangsefni Óđsmála, hin tćra ćvaforna guđspeki og dýpt,
hvernig nema má upp fimbulrúnir á auđveldan hátt

Hávamál (/the dialogue of the High One) from v.138 and on, is pure acient spirituality --
this is the field of concern of Óđsmál -- how humans easily have access to The Gap during lifetime

  Völuspá  --  heiđnu kvćđin sem hún er samin uppúr, en síđaritímaviđbćtur mega missa sig;
les „Maddömuna međ kýrhausinn" (1964, 2002) eftir Helga Hálfdánarson

Völuspá (as we know it now) is a pot-pourri of heathen ancient poems, and added later-time stuff,
plus a lot of mis-interpretations and mis-reading of manuscripts by scolars also adding their personal comments due to ignorance and lack of gnosis of the time-honored wisdom of our heathen forefathers;
--  by all means study the theory of Helgi Hálfdánarson ISBN 9979-3-2378-7 (2nd edition 2002)

(available in libraries only:)                                                                 .
 
Óðsmál (Óđs mál), the amusing and meaningful book:
the rediscovery of the profound meaning
of Hávamál (the last part, spiritualtiy, v138 and on)
and  Völuspá , the original heathen poems (not the later-time additions)
the sacred texts of heathenry (ásatrú),

revealing the profundity of
the ancient, heathen civilization of the North,
which was suppressed, banned and distorted for centuries
by threat-imposed Christianity and imported culture from the South.

Vor siður is not a museum piece,
forni siður is not primitive and stupid,
it is a beautiful living tradition,
profound, ancient and ever young,
much needed and practical wisdom and science
in the world of men to-day.
the abyss of the symbolic language of edda

   
Týr,pure thought;són,fórn,transcending;nirvana;       Mjöllnir;              goddess Sun in us;

 
Hel(brake between life-spans);GoddessSun; Gungnir(vibrations)=creation; sons ofÓđinn(/consciousness)

 
transcending, be ginnungagap=fórn;                      tröll are ignorance,      Hnitbjörg, Gunnlöđ, mead of wisdom

elves are channels inwards, into That, Realitythe origin of all.
 

i repeat: Vor siður is not a museum piece, forni siður is not primitive and stupid, it is a beautiful living tradition,
profound, ancient and ever young, much needed and practical wisdom and science in the world of men to-day.

 

If you want to know what heathenry (asatru) is all about in core and essence, start by reading the book Óðsmál;  (pronounced Oaths-mowl)
*We might understand the first part of Hávamál, --as that is for us on crude stages of consciousness--,
*perhaps understand the middle part of Hávamál, --as that is for us when we begin to think (are no longer apes)--,
*but i doubt if we understand the profundity of the last vísur (stansas, verses (from vísa 138 and on)) of Hávamál, --that are about transcending the world of matter and transcend even our dear human thoughts--.

--> rúnatal og ljóđin og 9 galdrar góđir, the power within man, reached in the wakeful dynamic silence, the awareness within our own Self, as we are ginnungagap;
(
note: fimbulrúnir, thus, are not the written fuţork (runic alfabet))

To gain fimbulrúnir and 9 good galdrar is a by-product of performing a valkyrja (transcend into ginnungagap, not being an individual, being ginnungagp only), the fórn, són, gjöf (gift), Haftsćnir, Gapţrosnir, my self given to my Self, Óđinn given to Óđinn.
We find the core and essence of our forefathers' wisdom and science of life.Gnoţi seauton (know your Self)

see also: audio-video, the abyss of the symbolic language of edda

This book, Óđsmál, overturns current ideas,
corrects misunderstandings,
(corrects history)
destroys ignorance
and uproots maltreatment,

reveals the depth of our ancestors' way of thinking,
shows us the due reverence we should pay
to our precious heritage, the Eddas, the sacred poems,
and the real meaning and profundity of our ancient myths and saying
of the North.

-"Sacred?!!!!", an Icelander exclaimed. -"It can not be sacred if it is heathen!" 
Óðsmál (Odsmal) is exposing this (all too common) view to have risen from utter brainwashing.

Óðsmál explains the abyss of Hávamál (Havamal).
To understand the true, profound meaning of what is taught in Hávamál, read Óðsmál.

Óðsmál is evincing the original message, core and essence, in heathenry, paganry (asatru).

Óđsmál  is the only book to explain the profoundness of our ancient Norse mythology in this way.

We shall understand the symbolic language used in myths.  It is delicate, strong and precise.
the abyss of the symbolic language of edda; on DVDs, and soon launged here video/audio

Óðsmál is fun, enigmas, science, Weltanschauung, good advice for a sheer heathen view on life.
Life has a purpose:  the expansion of happiness, Glađheimar, Valhöll, for the living.

Myths and poems of anciend edda are explained in the contexts of the Vedas and modern science.
Do you know what ginnungagap is and where it is?  You will see in Óđsmál.

Óðsmál is, in a way, written like edda-poems, as, on the surface we see jokes and fun, but layer after layer of understanding -- according to the "level of understanding" of the listener,

our individual state of consciousness, only, allows us to "see" the hidden meaning; we are not all of us "seers", Sága, yet, but that gradually comes by our effort/will (Ţórr and Skađi)  to see, spiritually speaking.

Óðsmál (Odsmal) gives a scientific approach to the terms you most likely do not understand in Norse mythology. ---

Modern science and "mystics of reality" is allegory in our myths. It is all there!!!!

A nation that has lost the reverence to its own cultural heritage (in our case: we, all Europeans, who do not understand the profound Norse Frey-cult and core in heathenry, paganry (asatru)), and laps up instead and flatters for an alien (in our case: recently invented theokrasi (where a God is used for strategic purposes, empires, and dominance), imported culture, looses its true identity as a culturally independent nation.

A tradition, in its true place, has evolved according to the Laws of Nature in this region, and thus is a part of life of that particular nation, these particular people.

we should not threat-import other peoples' traditions or religions,
as that only disturbs the perfect correlation and flow of:
a tradition in its true place according to evolution in accordance with Natural Law
as they are truly in that their particular „home"

Without understanding its true ancient culture, a nation looses its own roots, --  and its true glory withers away.

We shall restore the profound understanding of the abyss of spiritual meanings in our ancient (forni, puran) siđur (swadha, siddhi, suddha).

This spiritual and cultural foundation in life is necessary in our times,
in modern times;   --
 rootless we get carried to and fro by whimsical winds

an ancor in eternity (nistha), sound footing in the turbulance, sound balance in life,  

--  a must for a living man.
Practical, the know-how, self-development, the „why-we-get-born"-gnosis

We/each one decides and desires to be born in a particular place at a particular time, choosing parents and a place and time of birth,
and we get re-born some many million times.

       -Why?
       -To evolve to perfection !
       -So why do we not tell our kids this very purpose of life?
       -Because we do not know; Nobody told us !!
       -Why did they not tell us??
       -They did not know; the pure wisdom was hibernating, dormant, in our cave.

    Óđsmál is meant to wake us up, and remedy lack of true purpose of living.

the purpose is not:  he who ownes the most of stuff in his garage when he dies, he is the winner.

Heathenry has been treated badly, deliberately misinterpreted, and is (by heathens as well as non-heathens) drastically misunderstood.
Contaminated by imported dogma by on-going brain-washing and sheer lies.
Some are deliberate, some are born of ignorance, yet others are unrevised „cliché" - repetition of wrong imprinting

        ÓÐSMÁL (Odsmal)
the book on
        pagan wisdom,
beauty of heathenry,
the pure theosophy in ásatrú
(asatru)
allegory in myths and edda poems;
learn to understand the symbolic language in myths;
for the first time: what is rúnatal in Hávamál telling us?

Óðsmál is a treasure !

Comments from readers and critics.Comments on Óðsmál (Odsmal) from Readers and Critics
Why do people love this book and call it a hyperbook?

A discussion between the little talkative wise völva (voelva) and the heathen Norse god Óđur (Odur)
-- during a single northern starlit winter-night of unexpected revelation. -- Am i talking to myself?

*NEW*
Are there any original and new theories revealed in this pioneer work, Óðsmál? -- Oh-yes! There are.

Some known theories you should know about. Some information for the curious ones in the field of northern culture, theosophy and northern mythology.

Man and Nature. Has due reverence to Nature lost its essence? Do we know the profoundness and unity that this sphere involves?
Why the terms nature-"belief" and nature-"worship" can not be used any more. What is yule-tide? Who is goddess Easter?

Skírnismál (Skirnismal) the ancient heathen yule poem (kvæði) of the Frey-cult.

Shallow gods or profound gods and banned gods, as sometimes a god is used by tyrants as a device and as a cover-up for their dominance-urge (theocracy).
Profound gods are found within as layers of the psyche and as "presidents" of Natural Laws, who run in prefect harmony the whole universe..

They delve deep into topics such as the creation of the world,
faith, man's thirst for knowledge, science, our yearning
to discover the origin of ourselves and all things
and the perennial quest for the Great Truth -
the Essence that exists inside everything:
God - the Unified Field - ginnunga-gap;
great ancient science in edda.

And what's more,
It's child's play.
Great fun.
Enjoy it!

Óðsmál; all left side pages are in English (216)
all right side pages in Icelandic (216), illustrated

info for fun:

Óðsmál (Od's mal) "decided" on its own (!!) to become 216 pages in each language;
216 is a mystical number, the number of einherjar in Valhöll; -- and 432 are echoed in edda from yugas (Vedic time-concept, (some zeros lacking here)) and is the number of doors and mansions of divine abodes in norse mythology.

If mystics look mystical to us, it is only because we lack understanding: there is nothing mystically unexplainable or ununderstandable about mystics; the "not understanding" is ignorance only;
Institutional belief (crede) is the extreme opposite of understanding, and that kind of belief actually thrives on ignorance. We are drifting away from institutional belief-systems back to the olden spirituality of ours -- as the world consciousness rises.
Know us to be origin of all (aham brahmasmi), not that there is “two”:  ginnungagap and I, but one and the same.  I am ginnungagap.   (This is the core and essence of heathenry, paganry.)
Human consciousness, universal consciousness, ginnungagap  -  one and the same.

The ancient science taught in Óðsmál is a modernly scientific exposure of the fully natural mystics in myths;
everything in Nature can be explained,
and the origin of the universe, ginnungagap, too, has to be known to be there; 


nothing is "mystical" about mystics, once we understand it; -- and the ancient heathen guys understood;

this is our priceless time-tested heritage of wisdom and understanding, -- of which coming generations must not be deprived.
We do not allow, from here on, any generation to miss the Unified-Field-based education.

the abyss of the symbolic language of edda; on DVDs, and soon launged here video/audio
or contact libraries:  libraries dvd edda.htm (for addresses)

Nine, the number 9, belongs to the norse mystics too, where 8 are the worldly layers, and 9 is the unseen great source, ginnungagap (gap ginnunga); 
nine nights is a beautiful concept in edda, probably not nine at all, rather timelessness or no-known-time;
the nine is divine.

The day that Óðsmál "chose" to be published on, in April 1996, is "the day of lasting achievements", akshaya tritiya*. On this day our sun, who represents the universal Self, and moon who represents the universal Mind are both exalted; only at this time of the year, twice a year, they are both simultaneously in the state of exaltation, the state of greatest brilliance -- my teacher tells me --;
__________
*) akshaya means undecaying or everlasting,

and what the amusing and informative Óðsmál brings us, is the science of our ancient ancestors that is just waiting for us to understand it again -- re-discover its profundity and beauty;

Sun and Moon, Sól og Máni, are to be found in Sunday and Monday; as Týr in Tuesday...... etc (Sól, Máni, Týr, Óðinn, Þór, Freyja, Loki(Saturn)), and Sun and Moon belong to norse mythology as "divinely worldly" powers -- as other gods and goddesses.

This book, Óðsmál, will change one-sided (deliberately invented and distorted) history, imprinted into European kids (and grown-ups) for too long; (They are still at it and we are brain-washed and blind.)

This book, Óðsmál, will open the eyes of heathen men to the priceless treasure that our ancient culture has in store for us -- when we are ready; -- and _now_ is the time to understand. The profundity of the symbolic language of edda is our next surprice and revelation.
our priceless wisdom

Norra,
Norræn menning

("Culture of the North", a non profit enterprice,
to promote the understanding of the ancient wisdom of the North
for coming generations to benefit from)

We shall live in accordance with the gods and goddesses, the Laws of Nature, and so the flow of Nature will support us; Þund.
Never shall we violate the Natural Laws, as that would be our ignorance to do so, and is bound to bring disharmony;

Nature will supply and care for us and take care of our needs, -- everything we need comes to us ("life is going our way" we call it), if we find the flow in us and in our perfectly harmonious Nature;
--  never ever violate the Laws of Nature,
--  bring back, give back to Nature, by transcending (practice TM)

that is to live in accordance with the gods. And we, silly Loki -- and only we, -- are responsible.

***

And here some hints about tricky history (where some "corrections" might be needed here and there and some lies and deliberate distortion could be exposed):
Ceasar wrote Bellum Gallicum, and rather embellished his personal part. That does happen, as we know, for example when autobiographies are written: I was great in spite of that perpetual nuisance of difficulties invented by lousy men (or something in that direction).

But Coscinny writes Asterix and Uderzo draws pictures in order to complete the documentation for us trans-Alpine barbarians. If you have Latin for a mother-tongue or are a Vatican citizen, you can get Asterix in Latin. Contact Delta Verlag, Stuttgart. It is all abou how we see the roman barbarians.

The Roman Empire is still going strong, now destroying ancient culture in, for example, Asia, called: planting the cross mission, and, as always, all the effort is for egoistic empirical purposes; now under diverse names using philanthropy as a garb to hide the modern strategy of theocracy.
(was Mustard Seed, now World Vision, and philanthropy as a garb) It “looks” better than killing men to kill “only” the ancient wisdom.

So, what happened in Europe?:

Imported culture brought devotion to suffering - imposed upon us and withheld by alian theocrasies, along with the lie: suffering purifies.
Suffering should be eliminated everywhere;
It is alien to, and the very opposite of, heathenry that sees seeking pure divine joy, and the expansion of happiness, to be our purpose in life;

Imported culture (used by the Roman Empire) brought women disdain
(withheld by patriarchy and male-ruled Miriam/Maria, meant to suffocate the worship of Great Goddesses),
which is absolutely impossible in the polytheoi-people's reverence to the female power and caring goddesses, of whom every girl is a lovely incarnation;
goddesses are the perpetual creative power on earth.

Threat-imposed /imported culture and monotheism brought devil-belief, fright and fear,
threat of hell withheld by theocracies:
(-  fear, fear, nerve-breaking stress, one-life-only, and a dead-end-dooms-day).

Suffering and devotion to suffering is considered a sick state by heathens,
as
only self-responsibility, self-discipline, honesty, trust in providence, earnest fairness, and evolution of mankind, are worth-while attributes.

Expansion of joy towards bliss is the aim.

Southern, imported culture brought the money money money-religion,
brought all-worldly values like dominance urge enjoyed by whatever means, blackmail, threat, lies, killing, burning, devastating, power of money, sneaking into concepts, dominance (the 7 useful sins are directly taught in their Books as a way to profit);
Monotheistic theocracies „steal concepts" in order to ab-use them for egoistic purposes -- by smiling tyrants in the garb of: God-loves-you so obey me -- or else...... (you know).

And the enlightened good Jew Jesus, is, by Roman Empire, abused for that: a threat, --- contrary to what he is said to have said.
An enlightned Jesus spoke from his high stage of evolution where loving everyone is easy;
but for the un-enlightened man this is a dogma not easy to follow at all.

This lust of dominance is again the very opposite of heathenry.

The heathen values are: living in harmony with Total Natural Law (Ţund),
seeking happiness and well-being for the whole of men in Miðgarður,
living in harmony with the gods / Laws of Nature.
We shall reap bounty and we give back to mother Nature by transcending the world of matter;

the technique is TM®, transcendental meditation, taught by Global Country
(--> get an EEG of your brain to see the correlation of brain-waves during TM)
.

Global Country of World Peace, life in concord with Total Natural Law;
a world administered by the perfect harmony of ginnungagap, Total Natural Law.
Every living human being can learn to do that (technique:  TM® and sidhi)
http://www.t-m.org.uk/     www.truthabouttm.com

Our highly evolved human nervous system (Sleipnir) allows us to administer the whole world  from The Field.

There _is_ a fundamental difference: -
-- the slogan:
all religions are the same, is really a lie;
       
traditions / religions are purely spiritual in essence,
       
religions are sometimes ab-used as warfare in disguise --  "learned jargon"
        each nation, each place, has evolved according to Natuaral Law in that very place,
and should not be pushed away by intruderes and exploiters, empires, and missionaries.

True is:  The true inner foundation of all religions, traditions, and science is the same
(so beware of mis-use, find true divinity and theosophy in your own tradition -- it is there!!)

Do not let the surface and flowery words and "learned jargon" lead you astray from the core and essence.
If you see the same phrases and customs in the theocracies as we have in heathenry, that is because they borrowed (/stole) the visible and audible part of heathenry, but reversed the meaning:

Strategy Damage the very core and essence and meaning: -- By telling men to believe, not understand, and obey some (man-ruled), see only an _outside_ and above God,
instead of seeking _inwards_ to the inner divinity _of man_.

           We are all in one divine ginnungagap;  nothing else is.

Tactic of the exploiters is revised as people get more educated:  if you hear the missionaries speak about (and claim to be selling us) inner divinity of man, it is because they, smartly, use contemporary fashion, and are strategically keen enough to see that people are becoming too educated to believe and fear that once-useful invention devil in hell.
Skill in marketing planning it is, to use trends and fashion and seek target groups that can be fooled by utopia promishes, flowery words and learned jargon..


To seek human power is in fashion right now, right?!! Dares a theocracy use it as a marketing trix?   - Yes it does. 
God is called to wars, but:  -can He be on both sides??
-No, then this war-God is not a true divine power.

Our might and main!! Þór in us,
and  boundless  nourishing  power of  ginnungagap is heathenry's great power.
Never used for warfare, but for peace only.  It is against warfare. Can be peace only.

        It is silence and dynamism.  Only evolutionary.

We should know that not violating the Laws of Nature, i.e. living in accordance with the gods, is the very secret of man's power; -- not power-greedy world empires.

Worship in heathenry is not dog-like flattering and blind obedience.
Worth-ship it is, -- sound estimation of man's divine potentials. "Worth".

Suffering is a mistake; devotion to suffering is a sick state. Blind belief is stupidity.

          Enlightenment is man's only natural and true state  -  so seek it.

Purpose of life is expansion of well-being, perfect health, happiness, prosperity, reverence to loving providing Mother Nature and Mother Earth and her atmosphere.

In heathenry the invention Devil does not exist, and we mocked him and quite liked that funny guy with the horns of fertility on his head --  and efficient heating in his volcanic abode in mother Earth;
Fire is the symbol of _divine will_ in myths, and (in symbolic language) purifying, as you know, a very precious attribute to any fiery man, and lack of fire means lack of will, a frozen state, a hrímþurs. --   so we added the devil for fun.

Folklore in Europe make that smart Devil-guy easily conquered by wit and intelligence, of which the heathens possessed a lot (magic and good god-spells).

Note: hell is a life in ignorance, -  a man living on low stages of consciousness is in darkness;

heaven is to live englightenment, Valhöll. -  Valhöll is the enlightened state of consciousness of a living person.

--   A rest between life-spans is only Helia(/Hel).  -  coffie-brake between life-spans, Hotel Hel.

Heathenry is invincible. Time-tested, ancient.
It is rooted in our ancient European culture; we shall rid ourselves of imported influences, dogma, and Roman-empire-inventions -  meant for dominance and a world-empire, exploitation,
--   and we should thereby revise and „re-set" the shallow "western culture" which is only a man-made, shallow facade ruled by devotion to
: disdain, and moneymoneymoney, and brute dominance urge  --   and even sick dedication to suffering.

„Re-set" it to profound spirituality: 
             purpose of life is evolution towards perfection

We shall have to understand again our roots, our dharma, the dharma of Europe, -- regain the wisdom of our ancient ancestors, our priceless spiritual heritage

 


Týr,pure thought;són,fórn,transcending;nirvana;  Mjöllnir; goddess Sun in us;

 
Helia,Hel(brake between life-spans);GoddessSun; Gungnir(vibrations)=creation; sons ofÓđinn(/consciousness)

 
transcending, be ginnungagap=fórn; tröll are ignorance,      Hnitbjörg, Gunnlöđ, mead of wisdom

elves are channels inwards, into That, Realitythe othe origin of all.
 

so I repeat: Vor siður is not a museum piece, forni siður is not primitive and stupid, it is a beautiful living tradition,
profond, ancient and ever young,
much needed and practical wisdom and science in the world of men to-day.
