137 A Drunk Viking – Unforgiving as a Hammer by John T Mainer…

An absolutely beautiful and deeply touching essay on the Heathen worldview regarding right, wrong, and redress.

We are our deeds. This is a truth that nearly all heathens accept; which is about as amazing as a rule all anarchists obey. We are the sum of all experiences we have been through, all choices we have made, and all the lessons we have taken from them. Our pain, our shame, our pride, our joy are all rooted in what we have done. We are all imperfect, we are all struggling to build our worth. Worth is the value that each community you are a part of places on the choices and deeds you have done. Worth is gained and lost on a daily basis, and a lifetime of worth can be lost in a single moment of unrestrained rage, cowardice, greed, or malice.
