Recently I joined a very nice group on Facebook, which had some very intelligent, and very nice members in it. I enjoyed being there very much, and the conversations were wonderful ! Unfortunately, not long after I joined a person was allowed to join who I have........ well lets just say differing opinions with..... so I left. I will not associate with those who I feel do not have the best interests of our religion in their hearts. Not even in an indirect way such as being a fellow member of an on - line group. It is a shame because there were several people on that site that, over time, I think I could have become friends with. But I will not compromise ! Never !
I have even distanced myself from the person who helped get me started on this website, and blogging, to help those just entering our religion. After a while I got tired of her self promoting ways, money making ways, and stopped talking to her. Though it is hard to know who to trust in our religion, or any religion for that matter, occassionally though I have found a few people who I have bonded with personally as well as professionally. Recently I became a sister organization with the Kenaz Kindred, Asatru Midgard Frankfurt, and though not officially, with Odin's Gift as well. We came together because we all have the same cause and duty, and that of course is to serve our folk and our Gods without seeking anything more than the honor to do so. Good people can be found out there in our religion if you look for them. Just beware of the message that some have for you, because it can be tainted with lies, racism, prejudice, and greed. Once you find those you trust hang on to them with all your might, it is well worth the effort.
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja' s love, and Thor's protection !
