Arktos



I went into a church, a Church of England church, and where there was meant to be an altar there was a large multi-coloured play frame for children to climb over—there was a coffee shop, too. I would not say that Christianity is dead—after all, Christians are in the resurrection business—but it is in deep trouble, being mainly shallow.


Now, I do not think Nordic people are very religious—English people, Nordic people just do not need that much religion, religion of any sort, at all; even when Britain was *really* Christian it was never as enthusiastic as in other places. The southerners, with their sumptuous temples, are much more religious—the Italians want to go to mama Church, mama Catholic Church for a big hug and good wine and a rich meal. As with their gestures, their religion has to be demonstrative. Nordics don’t need to go there—we want trees, icebergs, stars, and bears.


That said, the current situation has gone beyond a joke—I said Nordics don’t need much religion, not that they needed no religion at all; or, worse, a perverted religion. So here is what I propose: the religion Nordics need is Arthur, the Roundtable, and the Grail—twelve men on a quest. The difference between this religion and the southern religions and Christianity is that it is masculine; the Grail knights are akin to the apostles, but they do not preach—they act; in part, at least, Christianity was too feminine to resonate with Nordics—they conquered the world despite their religion, in a vast hypocritical act.


The Grail is the primordial Indo-Aryan myth—it predates Christianity and originated somewhere around Iran (“Aryan”, same name). The Grail has always been there (in the stars, not Iran) and if we want to revive Europe it is to the Grail we must return—with the knights of the Roundtable as our exemplars, with action the mode to emulate. The Grail is crisp and clear because our gods—Arthur—are in the stars; actually, all gods are in the stars but people have become confused and come to think that religion is some abstract intellectual game where you present “proofs” or “refutations”—not so, it’s in the sky; and the Grail is written in the sky too.


So in Arktos—in the Great and Little Bears—we have a clear, crisp polar religion that venerates the stars and seeks masculine action. Further, unlike modern paganisms, there is genuine initiation in the Grail because we have the tradition, not completely but in significant parts. People who start to “worship Thor” and similar activities usually have no idea what they are on about or think in a modern way—they are either progressives who hate Christianity (Wicca and the like) or they are neo-Hitlerites who want to use paganism to aggrandise their politics; while the latter are more correct than the former, since there is a blood element in religion, they still do not have initiation; and what they “make up” from academic textbooks will have not a single thing to do with actual pagan religion.


The Grail, by contrast, is encoded in Dante’s Divine Comedy—taken as a key text in Western civilisation anyway—and Dante spoke for an older initiation school that has existed for millennia. The ancients held the gods are the same everywhere, yet appear in different ways to different tribes—hence the gods, as angels, could have a Christian complexion for one tribe at one time period and then change. Dante dressed the eternal truth in Christian clothes. Now, of course, within Christianity to say that is heretical—but Christianity, as Nietzsche observed, ate itself long ago; in other words, the gods need new clothes—and I will sew them a wardrobe.


Indeed, I don’t think Nordics ever really accepted Christianity; they had been Christianised for less that five hundred years before they began to unpick it, to create Protestantism—although what they were left with at the end was almost total materialism and communism. Southerners like Christianity more, being more voluptuous and also corrupted by the Roman Empire at the end—yet even they are not comfortable with Christianity really.


It is pretty obvious, per Nietzsche, when you look at Christianity’s early history that it has the same aetiology as “wokeness” today—it flourished among enervated aristocrats, slaves, and women in a decadent empire; its novelty was to tell a martial people that weakness and meekness were “good” and its MO was just like the progressives (“the woke” as we say, for now)—run out into the motorway to protest climate change, then, when the irate drivers beat you, play victim; throw yourself to the lions for sympathy—but when you have the upper hand exterminate all other religions and establish a total monopoly on spirituality. The parallels between Christianity, progressivism, and Communism are painfully apparent—unless you are a believer.


Paradoxically, I think Christ did die and was resurrected—I am certain that happened. Yet I do not think that means I have to agree with everything his followers say (if they do, indeed, follow him—I have some doubts as to their meekness and mildness, in my experience). I agree with Guénon that “walking on water is more common than usually supposed”—which is not to say it is not exceptional individuals who do so (after all, what was Jesus really up to all the time before he began to preach—under some mystery school instruction, perhaps?).


I say that the West needs to return to Arthur—to the Great Bear, to what is written in the stars; to the Pole Star, Polaris—and to Arcturus. This is a faith in line with what Europeans are—and what we seek is the Grail, the instrument of perfect justice. As observed, there are 12 Grail knights, just like the 12 apostles; and that is because these numbers, in esoteric terms, have a significance that allows them to be deployed in many ways, just as the gods appear to different tribes in different ways; and the 12 Grail knights are the European destiny—other tribes have different destinies.


I think it is time for Europe to return to Arthur and the Roundtable—to be shown in a practical empirical way, without priestly tricks and Pharisaical games, that the gods are real; and, in particular, our god, Arthur, is real. So far as Christianity goes, what remains of it, I have no interest in a kick to a wounded animal—only cowards attack Christianity today, since it is down on its luck; a soft target.


So we will protect what remains from Christianity while the last Christians die off. It is easy enough, since the Grail was Christianised for a long time, it is just now we will regain the Grail in its pure form and worship the exact gods shortly. I would not stop you from worshipping Jesus—because I am not a fanatic who needs to stamp out everyone who does differently to me—yet I just say you will have better results as a European, as a Nordic, if you worship Arthur. It will begin to make sense to you in a way not found in Christianity, since all Europeans feel in a church, at heart, it is powerful but not quite right. We may be forced to kneel before the gods in person, but the Christian fascination for kneeling for prayer is unEuropean—we will salute the gods, and feel better for it.


As for people who want to worship Thor and so on, I have no objection—as with Jesus—and yet so far as I can see the initiations and traditions associated with these gods are lost, even more so than with Christianity; however, with the Grail, we have an intact tradition to which we can refer right up to modernity—and it is such an old Indo-Aryan myth (a myth is a silent truth, by the way—not a fictional construction) that I would go so far as to say that the Grail is Europe; and so Europeans must recover the strength of Arthur, “the Great Bear”, the strength of nine men, if they are to revive themselves. Although this will seem insane in current conditions, the gods are real—appear as star-like entities—and can be reached via a relation to visible stars in the heavens; and Arthur’s strength, while it has a physical dimension absent in Christianity, also contains real spiritual powers—a cold, clean polar strength.


It is now, when Europe’s spiritual condition has reached its lowest ebb, that we will begin the recovery back to the Grail—back to an ideal for Europeans based on a knightly fellowship that serves Arthur and the Grail. In the interim, there will be more dissolution and catastrophe, as the last Christian remnants dissolve and people cling to “psychological” and “metaphorical” approaches to religion in the Jungian line—or just turn churches into multi-purpose activity centres. Yet this will change when the gods make themselves more apparent—as they will in increasing numbers over the next decade—and as they do so the fellowship infused with the spirit of Arthur will grow in its authority and begin Europe’s restoration.


However, at the current time, the patient has ebbed very low—they have lost much blood, are currently in a coma; and it is difficult to even make them eat. Hence this is the time when the fellowship will be formed—the symbolic fellowship, the twelve men (plus Merlin)—who will establish contact with Arthur and his Grail knights in the sky. Then the Grail’s power will stir, it will be very gentle at first—just an eddy in the dusk air, hardly visible. The Grail will return, the Roundtable will return, Arthur will return—this is not a negotiation, it is inevitable (a little bird told me). So go now, consecrate the temples—make offerings, to Arthur and the Grail.
