First, where this came from:
I have been having trouble maintaining calm because I forgot to have and use multiple plans. I injured myself and could/can not do the intense workouts I used to do. In addition, life and our political situation have only gotten worse. I can feel the rage sitting on my shoulders like a weight and keeping me tense.
Second, and as important:
I wrote then and before that I could not use the “Above” method. However, with the current issues and having limited choices, I am trying that by handing off what Rage I can up to Freya so that I can maintain my hospitality and honor those I love. It is a work in progress and I will report more at a later time.
I have found the last year much harder as a result of social media and my response to it. As I was pondering that, I saw the above article. It is worth considering how much time we spend in places designed to distract or anger us and take us away from thought.
While I am still working on my path, I think controlling the amount of time we spend on social media is a good start. I am not suggesting you walk away entirely, but consider how you let such things affect you.

Talk to a friend
Do not let their desire to sell you advertising to invade your inner garth. Do not give others such power over you.
It was pointed out to me by a friend in a reading yesterday that my rage has grown a great deal recently and could return me to the days of fearing for those close to me. I need to redouble my work on the path that started this blog, restarting old methods and finding new ones. I will work to write once a week on that topic as I move forward.
This does not mean that Hate and White Supremacy are not major threats, just that I need to do maintenance and find better ways to do some kinds of work.
Until next time.
I attended an event last night involving Spae and Seidr style divination where I happened to ask a question about two ancestors. It was not the question I thought I would ask initially. I have referred to them in writings before, obliquely:
I have felt them recently in light of many events but did not know how best to connect. The advice I received was to do something for them each morning for 30 days, and then judge whether to continue for another 30, and so on. I spent time as the ritual continued to others pondering this and came up with a simple answer.
Both ancestors were male and clean shaven. I happen to shave with an old style safety razor. I would honor them as I shaved. It worked well this morning and made me calmer. I will continue this and try to post again after 30 days.
When you have lost everything, even your name, there is little point in going on. I was not churlish enough to leave my body hanging where I would be found by those who would be hurt by it. I brought my rope with me to the park. There was an old maple tree […]
I honor all the gods, although Odin is one I do not do much more than that. Still, the story resonates and might be of interest to those who do.
I call myself a very narrow specialist and not even an Expert but the questions here are worthy of consideration:
