There is a certain marching song which was sung by the Hitler Youth, where the lyrics call on the HJ to reject christianity. It is often quoted on various sites around the web, with a varying degree of translations, though they all contain the translation which calls for a rejection of the Pope or the church!

I've have managed to find the words for the original marching song here, in German. Hopefully I'll be able to find the music or a recording of this song being sung.! I can translate only the most basic of German, so a literal translation in English follows the German. One of the first images I ever came across when I first started looking into National Socialism was a photo of the Hitler Youth celebrating the summer solstice (Sommersonnenwende). I didn't need to be told that the Hitler Youth were a pagan organisation - it was obvious. Their spirit was free! There was real happiness in their faces. A Youth awakened and a nation reborn.

Wir sind die fröhliche Hitlerjugend,
Wir brauchen keine christliche Tugend,
Denn unser Führer Adolf Hitler
Ist stets unser Mittler.

Kein Pfaffe, kein böser, kann uns je hindern,
Uns zu fühlen als Hitlers Kinder.
Nicht Christus folgen wir, sondern Horst Wessel,
Fort mit Weihrauch und Weihwasserkessel!

Wir folgen singend unseren Fahnen
Als würdige Söhne unserer Ahnen,
Ich bin kein Christ, kein Katholik,
Ich geh mit SA durch dünn und dick.

Die Kirche kann mir gestohlen werden,
Das Hakenkreuz ist Erlösung auf Erden,
Ihm will ich folgen auf Schritt und Tritt,
Baldur von Schirach, nimm mich mit!

We are the joyous Hitler youth, 
We do not need any Christian virtue, 
Because our leader Adolf Hitler 
Is always our Mediator. 

No evil priest can ever stop us 
We feel we are Hitler's children. 
Not Christ we follow, but Horst Wessel, 
Away with incense and holy water! 

We sing as we follow  our flags 
As worthy sons of our ancestors, 
I am not a Christian, not a Catholic, 
I'll go with SA through thin and thick. 

The church can be lost, 
The swastika is salvation on earth, 
I will follow him at every turn, 
Baldur von Schirach, take me with you!

To all my readers, a happy Autumn and Evenstead

Now is the start of Autumn, and is when we would be gathering the harvests and fruits from the fields and hedgerows, laying them down for the winter. The harvest festival is one of the celebrations hijacked by the christians from our Germanic forefathers! The National Socialists put this right, and the Harvest Festival or Reichserntedankfest became the second largest social gathering the Germany after the May 1st Labour rallies. 

 Heilig Erda!

The Holy and Unholy!

I make numerous references to the Hagal (Hail) rune in my posts. I have developed a growing interest in this particular rune over the last year or so. It is strange but I have noticed how various groups or individuals will adopt a single rune out of the numerous rune rows as a logo or emblem. This is natural of course, and more than likely the rune meaning will reflect the nature of the organisation or person. For example the Leben -Life rune seems very popular in Holland and Flanders, the Odal rune is widely used in Germany, whilst various English groups have adopted the Ing rune - after the English name for Frey. 

As a keen gardener I'm becoming use to the various life cycles of the different fruit and veg that I grow. As the Hagal rune binds both the life and death runes together maybe this is where the connection comes from? 

The Hagal rune I use personally is the six armed style of the Germanic rune rows. This is because I feel that it is a natural representation of the suns rays, and of the binding of Life and Death runes. When using the English 33 row or the Ar Kan Rune Lag of Woden's Folk I will use the traditional English version. However there is a very similar rune within the English rune row - but has a very different meaning.

This is the Hagal rune that I most often use - 

This is the Hagal (Haegl) rune from the English Rune rows -

This rune is from the English rows too - which looks similar to the Hagal rune but if you notice the X staves cross over the upright stave higher up than its middle. There are many sites which confuse these two runes - which could be a really problem if there are using them for the purpose of ritual and rune work!! 

This bottom rune is the Ior rune - which is the rune of the Serpent (Ior is Jor and the root of  Jormungand the World Serpent).

If you take the Hagal rune we see 6 equal arms (which would divide a circle into 6 equal parts or triangles, each being 60 degrees. The Ior rune is a serpent with 5 heads and a tail -interestingly 5x60 is 300 which is the number of 'heads' of the council of Learned Elders as described in the Protocols). This rune then represents the unholy - the evil World Serpent. Within the the Nine Herbs charm we read that Woden takes a stick and kills this snake - he cuts of its tail. We can see that if we cut the tail off from this rune and kill the evil we are left with a rune that is holy!

Why do we often use German spelling and terms instead of English or anglicised  translations?

You'll often see German words and terms being used in this blog, and elsewhere within the wider Volkish - Runic - National Socialist world. The reason for this is that more often than not some words lose their meaning when translated. Sometimes there is just got a word in English that has the same depth of meaning. If we look at these words you'll see what I mean-

Volk - the English word is Folk, which has a very similar meaning indeed. The German 'Volk' refers to the racial and ethnic group - the Blood Community - whilst the English word Folk has the same meaning, it is sometimes only applied to the rural populations, as if race was defined by culture rather than blood.

Heimat - The Homeland. The German term Heimat is the racial homeland from where both your blood and soul descend from. It is more than the English term 'homeland' which can be used to describe your nationality. The Norse god Heimdallr is often referred to as the 'shining god' or 'shining Ase' - but if we take a closer look at his name we see it means 'shining homeland' - Heimdallr is a racial god clearly, but is also a god of the Heimat. A God of a promised land perhaps? 

Männerbund - Again there is no English translation for this term, for the concept is a Germano-Aryan one and not English. The concept was a heathen one and probably faded out with the conversion of the English to christianity. Earlier Saxon tribes in Europe would have known such groups, thus the term would remain 'bund'.  The English word band isn't the same as 'bund' as the word bund still retains the spiritual meaning of being 'bound', be it in Blood or by Faith. This is why we use the term Bund. The English term 'band' refers to a loose collective - which certainly isn't the same. The word bund is more closely related to the English bound or bond.  The Scandinavian word for farmer is bondi - here we see how the bundish term continued in use - for the Farmer is 'bound' to the soil. The word bund continued into American English, via the American German population - which nearly made German the first language in America. Image how the world would be today if the Americans had adopted the Germanic world-view rather than the judeo-christian one bought to the New World by the christian extremists of England and Holland?

Weltanschauung - this is the German term for World-view, and was made common by its use within National Socialist Germany. It means 'world-view' in English but is rather a life-view, and describes how our National Socialist philosophy can answer all of life's questions, It can be seen as a path we follow and a way to live as well as the world-view we hold. This is why there such a vast difference between those who would describe themselves 'National Socialist' and those who called themselves 'Neonazi'.  Odalism is another such Weltanschauung which can guide the follower to a better understanding of the world around us.

Gottgläubig - an interesting word from Nation Socialist German. It means 'I believe in God' and was used for documents in Germany such as in ID's and on certificates. The concept of believing in god was important in NS Germany, more important than the name you gave your god, hence Gottgläubig could mean a muslim, christian or a heathen. This is important to understand (and respect) for the National Socialists understood that there is a single divine concept that underlines all religions and faiths- LIFE. Understand this Life-force and respecting it (whilst the judeo-christians will even reject it) was centre to National Socialist belief. The concept is very easy to understand. That this god-force will manifest within a racial collective  in the manner of the customs and culture of this volk-group, hence a weak people will always worship a weak god, and a strong people will always worship a strong god. This respect for religion was law under the German 25 point programme. This understanding of divinity and new religious freedoms allowed the Germans to explore their own spiritual heritage, hence why so many members of the SS left the christian church and return to the faith of our ancestors.

24. We demand freedom for all religious faiths in the state, insofar as they do not endanger its existence or offend the moral and ethical sense of the Germanic race.

On the 16th Sept I had a dream in which I saw a runebinding merge and then transform. The runes were a Sieg rune, and a glyph in the shape of a chevron (upside down V) - the chevron merged with the top of the Sieg rune to form a Tyr (Tiw) rune - and produced a runebinding which will be familiar to many readers as 'Sieg-Tyr', itself a common rune-chant.

However the 'arms' of the Tyr rune were much longer than how they would normally be drawn, and in my dream they became to symbolise a mountain. The centre of the Tyr-Sieg runebinding became a lightening flash which bolted down from the top of the mountain.   

Anyone who works with runes on a regular bases will experience dreams for flashes of inspiration in regards to new insights and rune meanings. Folk like Guido Von List, whose work in runology was far ahead of his time went even further and in his blindness envisioned a rune row based upon the Havamal.  Wulf Ingesunnu's work within Woden's Folk has also lead to the creation of an Aryan rune row based on Aryan-Saxon mysteries and insights. Some folk attack these new interpretations as if they are a distortion of original rune meanings (ie these meanings differ from the rune poems) - but there is no pre-defined interpretation of the runes, other than that which merges from the folk-soul collective. Those who stick to such a ridged interpretation of the runes based on the rune poems are those who least understand the runes! The rune poems and our sagas were mostly recorded, and later distorted by christians anyway. 

A constant working with the runes will develop a closer connection to the Aryan folk-soul, and a truer interpretation of the runes will manifest from your practises.

My own dream has lead me to the works of a National Socialist runeworker by the name of Heinar Schilling. His book 'Runekunde' was  produced to introduce members of the NSDAP to the runes and their meanings. His book includes many of the more common bindings, including the Sieg Tyr binding. 

We  all interpret our dreams in our own way - for me the mountain was the Sacred Mountain which appears in so many Aryan mysteries. The Lightening bolt is symbolic of Thor, however in the context of the dream, the bolt came from the god Ziu - a Germanic god of the Swabian folk, whom we call Tiw/Tyr. Ziu is etymologically connected to the Hellenic god Zeus, and as we know he sits upon mount Olympus as a thunder god. 

The rune binding of Sieg Tyr itself later evolved into a its own rune called 'Ziu'. The importance of the dream centred upon the mountain. The insight here is that whilst looking at articles on Ziu, there are numerous references to the German Harz mountain range. The Harz mountains are certainly a sacred area of German, which have appeared to me in dreams before.

The path he treads is black and white and red..

reads the Hymn (number 20) to Agni from the Aryan holy book Rig-Veda.

Agni is the holy Aryan god of Fire. His sign is the most sacred in all Aryan-Hindu lore, the Swastika. Like the English Inga (Agni backwards) he represents the creation of fire (the swastika is the fire whisk). Agni's name originates in the Proto-European root Ign, which gives us the word Ignite. 

Nine Glory Twigs

This refers to a pattern of nine overlapping twigs - which forms the pattern below. The poem called the 'Nine Herbs Charm' describes Woden using the Nine Glory Twigs- 

A snake came crawling, it bit a man.
Then Woden took nine glory-twigs,
Smote the serpent so that it flew into nine parts.
There apple brought this pass against poison,
That she nevermore would enter her house.

From this pattern it is possible to visualise every rune stave shape. You will notice that at the very centre there is a Hagal rune, hence why within  Armanen circles the Hagal rune is such an important rune (and is called the 'Mother Rune' - a subject for another article).

There is a seemingly common theme amongst some wiccan and non-volkish groups to confuse this pattern with a certain non-Germanic formula - namely the Etz haChayim or the Kabbalistic (Jewish) Tree of Life. I guess that the reference to the 'Tree of Life' may confuse some, as this is a kenning for the Algiz rune, though there is no doubt in my mind that there is also a deliberate attempt to 'dissolve' the meanings of our Germanic runerows and dilute rune practises in an attempt to disrupt our vital work. You only have to look any book by Ralph Blum to see this. Blum is 'credited' with the invention of the so called 'blank rune' - which in reality was nothing more than a spare rune used to fill a 5 x 5 tray of runes (24 runes plus the blank) which accompanied some of his books. Blum is him self jewish, as many of you will be aware.
