    Let's explore one possible interpretation of the god Odin in his quest for ultimate power and wisdom. The darker characteristics of this god reflect a solitary darker path towards enlightenment.

Let me posit you this question: what should one do once he has achieved the light through the dark?

Sometimes that path of darkness towards liberation is subconscious - selfish, self-centered - and to transcend that takes crisis after crisis and learning the Hard Way. I also call this the Coyote way - learning a lesson "backwards," instead of heeding instruction towards a better life - having to learn it the Hard Way. It is unconscious, it is subconscious - but it is in alignment with what you are saying about Odhin.

I think that people who would like to learn about paganism, have lot to learn from living pagan traditions, like the so called Shinto traditions in Japan. Japan is still a pagan and the old traditions still live in the present and new traditions within it are also made. There is no clear border between "beasts" and kami (which could be translated as gods / god because japanse does not have plural forms, therefore endless kami, but it does not really mean god either) . Basically if you are powerful enough you can be enshrined as a kami in a shrine. In some areas of Japan the water creature Kappa is celebrated. I think this thing with kami being celebrated, rather than believed in is also interesting for pagans. The Kami are not good or evil, they are enshrined and the shrines are not just powerfully good for you they can be powerfully bad for you, therefore caretakers who take care of the shrine. Shrines are often placed in places as reminders, maybe earthquakes, landslides, volcanos and other natural disasters. In Japan the chaos of Kami is prevalent, and the well prepared survive. And the pagan aseatic gods, where also gods in a time when human still did not control nature, and needed a collective memory to survive, os of best practices. In nordic countries until rather recent times the survival of your family depended on your preparation for the long winter. Therefore traditional Nordic food is survival food, salted dried. And this was also the reason for the expansion outward, when land could not carry more people. Also I think that if we look at paganism as some kind of spiritual belief system, we might go wrong, because at that time it was not, as I mentioned I believe it was more of a collective memory of best practices and warnings, and the best way to carry these memories from generation to generation is to celebrate the gods that represent important qualities or happenings. Even the old testament is probably a collection of pre judeo christian pagan stories. Anyway just my opinions, don't put to much energy in to them, but I hope some digging in Shinto might inspire and help someone in their search for a modern pagan tradition...

I met Odin in the woods once, He appeared to me as an old man, I was 28 years young and strong and I feared nothing unto death. But when this old man was walking toward me, I became very fearful and I could not control it. He told me many things about myself that no one else could know, and things about myself that I did not know. His words toward me was very harsh with no mercy, scolding me and I was on my knees crippled with fear unable to even speak. He told me, "Get up and stop pitying yourself." Then he walked into the woods and disappeared. To this day I still don't understand that experience. No! I was not high on drugs or Alcohol.

Odin is not evil. Just complex. I mean he liked sharing wisdom and helping people but he was quick to anger and sometimes demanding but still he has a good side. His nature is more human. Learning from mistakes and be better.

I really respect the impartial knowledge you have to share, this video as well as your video on thursatru and the sinister path have had a large influence on how i follow the Odinic path. I initially thought that in nondualism; embracing my addiction & self destructive behavior would lead me to great enlightenment, which it sort of did; but it also lead me too realize that with the absence of order, chaos & darkness dominated my life; it almost broke me. Until i realised that it wasn't about embracing the chaos, but coming to realize that chaos around and within me has the limitless potential to create, just as it has the same limitless potential for destruction without order. Its a matter of learning to work with it by establishing and structure to further grow and create. I try to stay faithful too tribalism; but my path to following Odin is heavily influenced by thursatru as well; i know this path will continue to be an uneasy one, but i am finally reshaping the chaos within me because i have finally found order and purpose, I've revived my love to relentlessly pursue wisdom, ive learned to accept the nature of events and take accountability of my consequences make the best out of it. "Strength in the body Growth in the earth" Thank you Arith

A very interesting talk on the god Odin. I was particularly interested in how you pronounced this name as 'Hooden' (without any emphasis on the 'h'). Here in England we refer to this god as 'Woden' which is pronounced as it would be in modern English, but obviously not so originally, since the Old Saxons wrote it as 'uuoden'. In the shire of Kent in the South of England is a custom of parading around the streets as a 'hobby-horse' and the title given is 'Hooden' or 'Hooden Horse' which has already been recognised as Woden/Odin by some. What a lot of English people are not aware of is that their most famous Folk-Hero - Robin Hood - derives from the remembrance of Woden in a role as the 'Green Man', the 'Lord of the Trees'. The tales of Robin Hood show his 'light side' as 'Fame-Bright Hooden' which is what 'Robin Hood' means. Robin Hood (Hode) was said to be a one-eyed wanderer wearing a red mask fitting with his being the 'One-Eyed God' and the 'Masked One'. On the other side of England in Wiltshire is a barrow called 'Adam's Grave' which is situated in the area around Avebury Stone Circle and Silbury Hill. A couple of decades ago a woman visiting the site was about to leave when she suddenly stopped and became anxiety and then not a little afraid for no reason whatever; she looked around to see no-one else there. She then heard the sound of an 'army of horses' galloping towards her at full speed; she moved off slightly past the barrow and the sounds stopped immediately. The original name of the barrow was 'Woden's Burgh'! She had obviously witnessed the sound of the Wild Hunter-God, as Carl Jung mentioned about in regard to his dream when his mother died. The area around 'Woden's Burgh' has names connected with Woden - Waden Hill, Wansdyke - and Silbury Hill nearby may have been used as a Germanic Thing-Stead. The old church in Alton Barnes just below this barrow has a rather mysterious plaque which tells that this area is a 'Gateway to Heaven' - i.e. a 'Gateway to the Gods'. Remains of a stone circle can be found within the church and a 1700 year old Yew Tree stands in the church too. Strangely enough a hill-figure in Sussex (South Saxon Mark) called 'The Long Man of Wilmington has a churchyard nearby with a 1600 year old Yew Tree. The hill-figure is connected to an old god called Waendel and his pose seems to be very similar to Swedish bracteates that seem to show Woden with a Wolf-Warrior. The figure was once helmeted and held two spears, but these remain as 'poles' now. A similar figure was found on the Finglesham Buckle in Kent. My own experiences have seen him as Woden as the 'April Fool'. Nearby is a long barrow called 'Hunter's Burgh'. On the other side of England in Dorset is the 'Cerne Abbas Giant' who is Herne the Hunter, and he is shown bearing a club as a solar-phallic god. Herne the Hunter is a darker side of Woden as the Wild Hunter-God, and the figure seems to be symbolic of Orion the Hunter in the winter skies. In regard to a comment linking Woden to Shiva is interesting since Shiva is a later form of the original Rudra who had another title 'Ugr' so similar to 'Yggr', both meaning 'The Terrible'.

Odin can do terrible things. As the patriarch of all humanity and all the gods he has to be terrifying. He carries true power. He can use terrible power to achieve his goals as well. Odin is a god that has a dark side, and he knows how to use it. This is good advice for all men, if you can control your darkness you can become quite powerful.

How does one define good and evil? I lived most of my life viewing good and evil as a social contract. If there was an inherent good and evil why such a diversity of opinions across the world. After living a pretty epic life with previously not believing in good or evil other than what we as a society define it as, I have come to the conclusion good is what is productive, evil is what is unproductive. I now chose to live my life goodly, first what is productive to me in mind, body and spirit. Secondly what is productive to my society. Third what is productive to my species and humanity as a whole. If my action can agree with those 3 things then I find that action good. There still is the opposite of this which is necessary. Unproductive and destructive acts I define as evil, but knowing this I still chose evil here and there. War I would consider an evil act, however I find it necessary in situatios such as, protecting my family X. To me it's about becoming gray. Knowing both good and evil but applying it properly.

I very much agree with what you said about spirituality not being about one set truth, but rather a process that grants new understanding. I would share that my own personal perspective is Odin's actions are highly altruistic. Odin seeks knowledge in preparation for Ragnarok. He knows that in taking the actions that he does, he will perish at Ragnarok, so I would argue that his actions must be for other reasons than pure self interest. While Odin does not survive Ragnarok, the world, his creation, does. It seems to make quite a lot of sense that a better explanation is that Odin sacrifices himself to preserve the world, so it may weather the forces of destruction and chaos. That Odin seems to act in his own interest does not negate his altruism. Odin is among the wisest beings, and I would argue that wisdom reveals altruism and self interest are not mutually exclusive. In fact, the enlightenment that great wisdom should bring is that we are all tied together, as a part of Yggdrasil. Often the greatest good is both altruistic and beneficial to the self, because on a deeper level we are one.

I truly enjoy your videos Arith; your teachings confirms what I've understood while walking the Left Hand Path. I have various archetypes from other pantheon including the Norse Pantheon. I see Odinn as my principal archetype for searching wisdom whether be dark or light(without using the concept of good and evil), and understanding wisdom no matter if I have to cheat, lie others. My goal is to have bettwr understanding of tje mysteries and to be completely different in many ways from others.

The dualistic view of good and evil isn't a Semitic idea. YHVH causes both light and darkness. Neither comes from Christianity because evil has no substantial existence. The dualistic view comes from the Iranians.

Odin exists as nature - Odin exists with his free will - Odins 'nature' is his free will - thus his 'free will' is not his own, it belongs to nature - ergo he is a slave to his nature.
