But here we are, all in the same boat and sailing to an unknown destination. They say that the journey is the thing, and not the destination, and that may be true. Wouldn' t it make for a better, more comfortable journey, if we spoke to each other more often, and exchanged ideas. Over the past few years I have learned so much from the people I have had correspondence with, and I hope that there was an equal exchange of thoughts and knowledge as well that I provided. I have always had faith in our Gods and Goddesses, but it has taken several years of talking to people in our religion to gain a sense of faith in our folk, and a feeling that their is a true community of Asatruar out their eager for knowledge and friendship. You just have to reach out and start the conversation to become aware that there are good people out there who feel as you do.
This is the main reason I started my Facebook page for An Independent Asatru. It is a more relaxed way to speak to people, and an easier format to use. I have recently had a very nice Wiccan woman come to my Facebook page and it was delightful to converse with her. The fact that she is not Asatru herself makes no difference to me ! We share a common bond of friendship and unity under that banner that the Christians branded us with all those years ago called Paganism.
I guess what I am trying to say with this rambling article is that here at An Independent Asatru we respect all opinions, and feel that dialogue, even if it is the opposite of what we believe, is very much worth listening to and discussing. Remember we are all independent Asatruar in one way or another, and just the fact that you chose a Pagan religion, ( or it chose you ), shows that you have an independent spirit and that you do not want to just follow what others have told you is the only truth. We here at An Independent Asatru very much respect those who think freely, and who are not afraid to express those opinions with others. So do not feel embarrassed; do not feel awkward; and do not feel afraid. This is one place where we want to hear from you, and will always respect your opinion ! Feel free to comment on my blog or on my Facebook page for this site. Your voice will always be heard here !
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love, and Thor's protection !
