  • Love the video man, and im sorry that you had to grow up in that kind of a christian environment, but the fact that Christianity is based around fear of judgment is kind of false… I have grown up in a christian household but was always taught that god was forgiving, and that if you ask, you shall receive, spiritually speaking that is. Now i am 15 and am growing into a mix of my Norse pagan roots and my christian faith, and consider my self an omnist, and take lessons, and teachings from all religions, but mainly Christianity, and Norse paganism… But anyway… LOVE YOUR VIDS

  • Good video Arith! Thanks for share that your important point of view.
    I just see cleary that you have resentment with christianity, in mine point of view the christianism was your first step on the spiritual way, similar to Odin suspended on the tree for 9 days.
    Regards.

  • Arith, have always enjoyed your presentations.I believe the vast majority of people have had to deal with Religions, and the harm they can inflict. The Abrahamic faiths diligently endeavor to suppress ones ability to have a moral compass, and to discern real from fake reality. There is a reason young children are trained into these faiths, and then in turn become the teachers themselves. And that reason is to keep their faith alive, so it will not die off. This in itself is not a valid reason to prolong an understanding of something. Castigating people outside your understanding of your own perceived reality and paradigm, is tantamount to control. And really isn't this what we have adopted in Western Religions, control of the masses. Arith I believe you have it right my friend. Ascertaining a knowledge of self first, will enable a person to become grounded, and form a base to start from. Always diligently seeking knowledge and perception : Expanding Knowledge.

  • I only changed my ways two years ago, Christianity destroyed my whole life as well , 39 was how old I was when I finally broke the binding , Christianity was a great spell they cast over the world

  • Christian church leaders in my own experience tend to be abuse victims and to, in one way or another, re-victimise and re-abuse their relationships.

    Most often we are not talking about sexual abuse (though sometimes they do sexually abuse and are caught out) but usually we are talking about physical, emotional, psychological and psychiatric abuse.

    They find 'reasons' and invent 'rationalisations' (in psychodynamic terms) for abuse, such as: "I'm teaching you what abuse is like" and "I am making you equal with this person" (somebody who was abused) and "You will develop a Christ-like resilience".

    All of their reasons are, of course, a distraction – for them and for others – from the real reason which is that their experiences have made them abusers.

    When priests say " overcome evil with goodness" and talk of how Christ will forgive all of your wrong doing for having given a single loaf of bread to a beggar, these things and such stories they tell for themselves. It is akin to paying for indulgences (a practice once practiced by members of the Catholic Church). Build an orphanage or a soup kitchen and be as wicked as you like.

    I promise you Christianity is a religion of abuse and of corruption. I have come to think of it as a religion of abusers, for abusers, and by abusers.

    Their beginning point is that we are no good and all reasonings lead to their end point which is that we are no good. In the Christian faith we are undeserving and no good and totally dependent on the grace of a tyrant. Sound like abuse? Thats because it is abuse.

    These are abusers who essentially project their psychologies onto the rest of the world and so see all of us as being equally wicked and abusive at our core.

    The only reason to continually abusseomebody over a period of twenty plus years is that you like it. These people like to anbuse. They get off on it.

    They are master manipulators who are very adept at mimicking upset and sorrow but the falseness of their feigned emotion all too often becomes manifest at some point. I think that's why they dont connect with the upset of their targets. They think that their victims are also acting, I'm sure.

    I have had Christians in my life persecuting me for years. They frequently swear at me (verbally abuse me). They have totally ruined over twenty years of life and included is that they destroyed a much treasured relationship. I can honestly say that i never knew what hatred was until these people invaded my life.

    To some degred they essentially behave like a protection racket. In fact I actually call them 'Gods protection racket'. The object of the exercise is to make your life utterly miserable until you join their ranks and I despise them for it.

    Christianity and raw christianity in particular truly is something to avoid. The only thing that most Christians have to filter what they read in their bibles through is their experiences of abuse and so – understandably – their religion is straightforwardly a vehicle for abuse.

    I believe two things:-
    1). Opportunities for Christian abuse need to be cut down and to this end we need a totally secular society, and
    2). Christians and other religious groups need more filters for their religious texts – such as some kind of health profession, for example -.

  • YHWH =Means you are the way(YHWY) and when you don't believe it they say Yeshua = yes you are ! YOU ARE THE WAY ,YES YOU ARE

  • At 19, my mother passed away, it was devastating, but she was fanatically Christian. You reminded me of the stifling and soul crushing effects religion can have. It's been years of waxing and waning between fear, guilt , etc. I was drawn to paganism at about 15, and deeply studied and practiced it.. and my mother hated it. I am 51 now and still recovering from religious shame and catholic guilt. My dad outlived my mother by many years, he was not fanatical and often said to me " why do you let anyone tell you what to do, why demonize anything?"
    It was recent dreams lately, where he emerged after he died telling me " you need to acknowledge your Northern ancestors"…there is much more to this, but this comment is already long…but these dreams lead me to be your patron, Arith, and this video seems to reveal perhaps you share some common history… it made me actually cry…religious oppression in the family is painful.

  • I think some people try to choose forms of paganism because they’ve watched too much Hollywood type witches etc. and maybe they want to feel some sort of personal power etc and they run to a bookstore and start rhyming spells but then this tv type magic doesn’t happen and they eventually leave. There’s a lot of responsibility in paganism or at least there is for me. I absolutely see the results of myself coming together with nature and I’ve had so many interesting things occur like when the hawk flew to me and landed at my feet and looked at me for a few minutes. I just had another similar encounter with a hawk directly after I had a specific thought. That’s part of magic not just timing spells and rituals for certain outcomes etc. my own boss has seen proof of things and has asked me to help him which totally threw me off. I think the path is solitary for most of us because it is so specific to the person but we come together when we need to. There should be no jealousy or hierarchy when this is realized and respected in my opinion. Sorry I know I write dissertations all the time. Lol

  • I have met so many of us who share this experience. Brought up in the false, foreign, eastern cult of christianity, we have an encounter with the true, living Gods of our ancestors. Everything changes from that encounter and the subsequent realization of that truth…….and it changes for the better. The Gods need us; we are critical to the natural order that surrounds both we and the Gods, and the Gods are so much closer than you imagine. Only a thin veil seperates us. Arith is absolutely right regarding the confidentiality of magical workings. Each Vitki is unique in a complex mix of natural abilities, developed atunement, the Gods favor directed toward the individual, and the degree of goodness – or evil – in the heart of the Vitki. So where to begin, one is likely to ask? I offer two recommendations: First, as I have stated before, return to a natural harmony to find resonance with the nine worlds. Do this by taking time to be amongst the greenwood, turn off your brain, and simply remember. Your ancestors memories have already been passed to you. Second, study the Runes. They are the great oracle bridging the thin veil. Arith provides knowledge of the runes meaning; study what he has provided. With this knowledge make and cast the runes as our ancestors did. Tacitus describes the method in Germania. I have found the old ways to be the best ways. Then, our relationship with the Gods was very well understood, while today we are forced by circumstance to be rediscoverers of these paths. In closing, our Gods live, and they look for men and women of stout heart, goodwill, and a yearning for truth. Take a walk amongst the greenwood, such joy awaits you, my brothers and sisters.

  • sorry you can not call your self a shaman, if you have never experienced any altered states , it is not being lazy, it is part of the path .you are a very intelligent in many fields of study, if you don't know what you are talking about it is better to close your mouth rather than sound like a fool. you do great work and i have great respect for your work , but if you do not have experience in area's of study it might be better to be quit ,and let others who do lead the way .the same way i yield to you, in your experience and your expertise in your field of study .thank you i love your work , it sounds like you need to grow a little in your assessment of others and there work , some of us are not lazy ,just seeking answers . altered states can be helpful and beneficial to the shamanic experience…} O {…

  • I grew up with similar circumstances. Even still now that I'm an adult in my 30's they still try to instill doubt and fear while ik trying to work on important things, and especially if I mention something fun I want to do (that's just narcissistic, though). Even though I pretty much knew about paganism my entire life, I didn't start delving into with my own awareness till about the age of 13 when I started finding books on it. Every book I would acquire would be thrown away. Even the book I started writing a "new language " in was thrown away cause it "looked like runes" and at that time I didn't know that much about the runes yet. Much like you I've always been pretty solitary. I dont really like people having their nose in my business, so this is pretty difficult for me to type all this out on here. Especially since I'm not sure if you will actually read it, but plenty of other might. Anyway… I've never done mushrooms or any of the others either, cause I have the same approach to that as you mentioned. I'm not saying the to sound like I'm copying you. I really am like that. I've tried to tell so many people exactly what you said, and no one I've ever known "gets it". It's just interesting to hear someone else say the things I've said, and thought on that subject matter. Might add more to this in a minute. Just wanted to go ahead and say that while I was thinking about it.
    Oh, yeah. The traveling thing. You should come to the states some time. Although I'm not sure if there's much here worth digging around for. I've never been overseas, but hope to at some point.

  • This is a wonderful video Arith! I appreciate your perspective and personal views when answering the Q & A's. Also, you lens on the ancient Pagan ways and traditions seems very accurate, authentic and genuine…Your early life might have been rough, but a fruit tree cannot bear the weight of it's own fruits without the winds and storms.

  • fear is how they control you. scare the child, the child grows up to scare their children. it is 2000 years of generational child abuse. I was born a child of nature, then had religion forced down my throat. I was christened greek orthodox, raised southern baptist, and for a while was an atheist in my young adult days until I found the lost parts I needed to understand and survive.

    not in the pages of the bible or any book of any kind, not in the words of men. but in the call of a raven and the sounds of the wind. and for the first time since I was a very young child, I found peace.

    thank you for all your works. i know now i am not alone anymore. but as time gose by i find i never was alone to begen with.

  • Thank's for making me feel like im not alone. This is my story as well. I have been going down my own path 2yrs almost but i was lost and terrified by so much till i found my path. 🐺ahoooo proud heathen

  • I had the same experience. Growing up in a putrid Christian home, parents instilling stories of fear and self loathing, suffering, and sacrifice and martydom crippled my inherent human spirit for many years. And then they took me to church to worship a dying man on a cross. and to eat his flesh and drink his blood and glorify his "suffering and sacrifice". Religion is the cancer of humanity. Christianity is every bit as disgusting and toxic and evil as its brother Islam.

  • Arith, you have the most adorable, charming personality. I can tell you don't really want to talk too much about your personal life, but it's enjoyable to see the personal side of "our professor." Thank you for sharing this interview.

  • I don't feel it odd to hear that spirituality is a path that is followed by an individual alone as it is really something that one can only perceive, truthfully alone. It becomes dogma when it is channelled through many people acting together because the uniqueness is lost and human nature is such that some feel compelled to follow those that feel compelled to lead.
    The danger then is that it becomes a political vehicle used to control instead of helping to advance.

  • I too spent my childhood in fear of hell. I used lie awake at night trying to comprehend an eternity without god and what eternal torture without end must be like. Things got much worse when I hit puberty and my fear of death skyrocketed. it took me decades to deprogram myself.

  • Thank you Arith; it's always mind expanding to listen to your thoughts, and consider them.
    Do you find any of the 'tenets', or principles or teachings of Christianity – or, of any of the other 'main' cultural religions – to be 'acceptable' or compatable with your understanding of "proper" spirituality that we people Naturaly engage in? I mean to say, how much – if any – do you suppose, of the cult of Christianity is actually Truth, shrouded in misunderstandings or, occluded by outright lies under the dis-guise of cultural Christianity?
    An 'answer' of yours early in this video had me thinking that Magic IS Work. Better I think to say, (The Great) Work is Magic. Work changes things, and it surely changes the worker.
    I like how Nikolai Tesla spoke his understanding, something like "… Science should, in all it's practices, do nothing that does not serve all Mankind…"
    I think True 'religion', like Science and Magic, is 'for' all Mankind, too. What else would The Creator of all things put them into existence for, if people, just as the rest of creation, weren't meant to benefit by them?
    Thanks again!

  • Earlier today I was reflecting on my childhood experiences with christianity and with the occult and how my christian up bringing caused many years of anguish and anxiety over the fate of my immortal soul . I am glad to have finally seen the truth about the Abrahamic religions: that they are nothing more than slave-ideologies masquerading as an authentic spirituality . Islam, Judaism and Christianity are all the same slave system simply designed to better suit particular people and cultures. In all three we find an ideology wherein the faithful adherent accepts a slavelike dynamic with their master. Threatened with the eternal whip for transgressions against the master or his earthly institution.

  • If the Gods imbibe to reach certain states, why should we not think it proper to do the same? Odin tells stories of drunkenness, both good and bad, as do several others in the lore…
    I actually don't agree with the extremes, but we are who we are…

  • Being raised atheist i can't even imagine the fear you dealt with as a child but i do know many others have felt the same. I'm glad you were able to move past that fear.
    I really appreciate your hard work in the videos you put out.
    Wonderful interview ❤

  • While I mostly agree with your opinion that people who only rely on drugs only experience half of what they really could, I still feel I need to point out the fallacy in your reasoning. If you yourself haven't tried any of these substances, then how can you possibly make this assessment? The thing is that people who only take psychedelics and never do shamanic techniques for reaching altered states (this is most people, unfortunately) could say that people like you who only rely on shamanic techniques miss out on most of the experience, and their argument would be just as valid/invalid. When it comes to DMT-breakthroughs specifically, they would probably be right as well, as this increases the vibration in your body to such an incredible level that I sincerely doubt that anyone would be able to reach such a state without the aid of the drug. The point is that I think you can only have an opinion on this if you actually have experienced both things.

    Personally, I have found that combining substances such as mushrooms with shamanic breathing and mental techniques such as seiðr, shapeshifting and tulpa creation result in the most powerful experiences. Usually, people are lazy and expect these substances to do everything for them and these people are taken along the ride of the drugs without any control, but by doing these shamanic techniques while under the influence, you can be completely in control of the experience and instead use the incredible energy from these substances in whatever way you want. And mind you, controlling the energy from a high dose of mushrooms or DMT is certainly not "the easiest" as you say, this is a very arrogant statement to make, you would know this if you tried.

  • To many people here get Christianity, Catholicism and Judaism mixed up badly… and i feel sorry that most the people in this comment section are either to ignorant to read the holy scripture and take there own path… Do not ever judge the man by the majority, and most people here have probably had bad experience with Christianity, But im telling you RIGHT NOW… REAL CHRISTIANITY IS ABOUT LOVE AND THAT IS THE ONLY THING… Real Christians also are not religions freaks as there made out to be on tv, There is bad people EVERYWHERE in EVERY religion, it all matters on who you end up befriending, and also who you end up leaveing. I really do feel sorry that you people here had such terrible experience, but ask you to at least research the religion you bash before bashing them… DO NOT JUDGE THE MAN BY THE MAJORITY IF WE ALL LIVED LIKE JESUS SAID, IT WOULD BE AN AMAZING WORLD… PS: Dont feel like im some idiot, i research and practice A LOT OF RELIGIONS AND LOVE ALL PEOPLE OF ALL RELIGIONS. I just read some of theses comments and they made me feel bad for the people writing them, and also the fact that they are very uneducated, and ignorant on the subject in which they argue, I ENCOURAGE PEOPLE HERE NOT TO MAKE THE MISTAKES CHRISTIANS MADE BACK IN THE DAY, AND START MAKING FUN OF, AND EXCLUDING EVERY RELIGION THAT ISNT YOUR OWN, I THINK PEOPLE SHOULD TAKE EVERY SINGLE RELIGION INTO ACCOUNT, AND FORM THERE OWN PERSONAL RELIGION FROM THE TEACHINGS THEY GATHER

  • This was great. So true, we want a messiah, an "ultimate truth." We long for dualism, it makes us feel safe. Follow no one. Make your own path, avoiding what you have no right or authority to do, such as victimizing others.

  • So I recently realized YouTube hasn't shown me any of your videos in a long time. I got worried you closed your channel down. Fortunately that's wasnt the case! I made sure the bell was rung so YouTube has no excuse.

  • I really love your channel and all your videos, and one of the reasons is because you choose all your words and statements very carefully and you also put thought into the way you dress for each video and specific subject. Maybe not many people have noticed this, sadly. But that is fascinating the amount of thought you put in every thing. In this particular video I enjoyed you appearing in an outfit almost like a teenager, probably because you are speaking of yourself and clearly you don't like to expose yourself but to help people in similar circumstances you opened up and present yourself in a humble and approachable figure, like "one of us" and showing your "young-self" precisely to avoid what you advise in the end of the video, that people should not follow anyone and they should not seek for a spiritual-guide. So you give out advise on an outfit that gives a more approachable and friendly image to cut the visual idea of an authority figure. Well done sir, well done. Everything you do has such a great physcological impact that people don't even realise and everything goes naturally. This is why I love all that you do. Everything is so well thought. It's not just your words that give comfort, but unconsciously your body language and outfits and expressions have a lot of impact as well.
