I recently read a wonderful article on BBC News about how the Estonians have " stepped away from God ". The article claims they are one of the least religious nations in the world, and that some have embraced Pagan religions such as Nature worship instead. They claim that their God is nature, and they use the name Maausk to describe this form of Estonian nature spirituality. They have no texts, or even set rituals. They simply go out into nature, and find harmony with it , and thereby find harmony in their own lives and souls. One of their ancient beliefs is that if a young girl picks wild flowers, and places them under her pillow, it will bring her a fine husband. They also like to have conversations with living things such as trees, and believe that the trees communicate with them also.
Granted, this is only a small percentage of their population, but I am so very glad I found this out before going to the Scandinavian Festival. It gives me a little more insight into one of the few people I don't know much about, and gives me a subject to strike up a conversation with. To my Norse Estonian Pagan brothers, I say Skal my friends ! I look foward to seeing you on Sunday !
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love, and Thor's protection !
