Part five of Joel's Thoughts on ancestral pride
I am very close to the archetype of Odin, but I know he is not all good. Odin is also Ygg, the terrible one. He is readily able to bless an evil man and curse a good man when it comes to his needs.
Remember this balance when you are feeling prideful about your ancestors. Don’t look at your past through rose coloured lenses otherwise you will be blindsided by your own evil. Keep your eyes open, learn and work in this moment for the future. Unchecked and ignorant pride will always lead to a downfall.
The bottom line is this, there is no racial pride because when it comes down to the science, we are all one race, originally one tribe and one family. Forgetting this is one of the major causes of the problems we have in this world. You wouldn’t kill your own family; take advantage of your brothers and sisters (I hope) so if we come to realize our interdependence and interconnectedness the world will change drastically. Hopefully that day will come before we destroy each other.
