The Force vs. Wyrd

15 Feb 2020 08:20 #349788 by Cyan Sarden
As we don't seem to have a forum for Heathenry (Pagan believes and modern Heathenry have been drifting apart for a while now), I'll just post this here:

Are there any modern Heathens here? If so, have any of you compared the ideas of the Force with the concept of Wyrd in Heathenry?

Wow, it's been a while since I've seen you around Cyan. How are you?
I honestly don't know enough about either to know what's the difference. In your opinion what separates the two?
Also are you suggesting a separate SIG?

I will follow Rex’s example and say GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN, Cyan. Should have mentioned it earlier, really. How have you been?

Uh, i call myself a heathen as kind of an irreverent jab at religious fundamentalism but i had no idea there was an actual heathen community.

People are complicated.

..."In my own search of all my search of my books and stuff in my own library ive found- nothing on the subject." I would love a explanation of your action and pros and cons of it and see if some of that parallels my own heathenish practices. Truthfully, ive been called heathen all my life but it was due to insults and hard jabs at me "NOT" being like others. Im amazed at you just coming back in and stirring my pot my friend. It is good to see ya back. So I ask- is it the "heathen" term here a general inclusion for not Abrahamic or is it direct and have a bit much more to it? I would actually like to know. This is coming from one who practices and studys - everything and sometimes anything. Ive heard of much but this is a huge world my friend - I could be missing pieces to a picture you may be holding or even that newest member who walked right in the door... im down to learn - teach an ol dog new tricks?

Wyrd- I looked it up and found such a general term used to describe the" Force" behind the Norse German Wicken - the spirit of it - What we would call the Force but more shaping mans lifes and fate intervening with direct actions being the possibility of steering with actions?

For me: witch doctors or "curanderos" are not book taught but " experience lead and guided." Book reading came later for me in my seeking and has benefit me and my own family greatly. Personally im not the same as those who came before me but only an addition to what has been- that what has been - is what ive been taught and how i practice is what everyone and thing share. Im amazed to see definitions of things in my real life pop up when they do- even from whom sometimes.

What is that flow? What and which is the description of one thing seen my many others?

I personally look forward to what this may bring.
