"Nothing rests; everything stirs; everything vibrates"
"A Myth is a story "true in all three worlds", as they say: it develops the imagination and magical thinking of children, by connecting them to the right archetype and immersing them in the collective soul of their people - it edifies men, forms their ethics and philosophy - and it allows the elders to transmit the spiritual heritage of the people - On the social level, it gives the people their religion, the warriors their ideals and the priests the secrets of Magic hidden under the allegories.
Axiom: everything in the universe proceeds from a vibratory ENERGY which creates a FORM expressing, in the form of a symbol, the deep nature of THAT from which it (the energy) proceeds: this form finally crystallizes into a PHYSICAL BODY. Now, all vibratory energy can only proceed from a LIVING BEING - the mysterious living being, the "CE" from which every phenomenon proceeds, is what we call "a god".
We postulate, by virtue of the law of analogy, that the god of the sun (for example), being the god whose deep nature is expressed by the sun, is also the god of EVERYTHING analogous to the sun: spiritual light, purity, beauty, harmony, joy, abundance, etc. - therefore, by coming into contact with him, we will be able to benefit from the spiritual and material benefits that are proper to him - We therefore NAME this god (by a magic formula expressing his deep nature - the Divine Name : BALDR in the case of the god of the sun) and, via the archetypes (symbols in analogical resonance with his being, image showing, no longer a "crystallization of his deep nature", like the solar star, but a representation of his PERSON: the one from which the initial vibratory energy proceeds), we strive to establish harmonious and fruitful contacts with him.
Once these relationships have been established, the gods themselves teach us the secrets of nature - the wise men record the secrets entrusted to them by the gods, - in the form of narratives that teach the layman the natural law and the ethics that flow from it, while awakening the imagination, wonder and magical thinking of children, - so that we can TRANSMIT these teachings - these narratives are what we call MYTHS.
YESTERDAY between the gods is self-evident - the little deity rector of the flower grove in the nearby park, though quite venerable in her own domain, is obviously subordinate to Frigg, deity rector of the sky, i.e. of destiny, or to Wotan, deity rector of primordial energy, i.e. of Magic.
The gods are thus, in short, "entities living on a higher plane than ours "* - Magic (reminder: "religion" is only the envelope of Magic: religion is to Magic what numbers are to numbers) is the art of coming into contact with them, "Mysticism" (ie spiritual discipline) the art of "raising our being to their level".
Of course, it is a long way.
The chief of our gods is the great Wotan. He is not a kind god. Whether men live or die, he doesn't care. He is cruel and loveless, but at birth he breathes "fury" into the soul of every man: the "fury" that confers the ability to fight and kill - the "fury" that confers the ability to unite with a woman, to enjoy and to procreate - the "fury" that confers their creative fever on artists, poets, writers, musicians - and the "fury" that makes people apprehend the suprasensible reality and burn to rise on the degrees of the Magical Initiation. .. What else could men ask of the gods?
