Mimir'sHead: Readings inspired by the Eddas, Sagas, Runes,and practice of contemporary Asatru.By Chad Axe 
To GodsTo KindredTo the Future
IntroductionThis book is primarily for the practicing Asatruar. Iassume a general familiarity with our Lore, the Gods, theEddas, Sagas, and Runes. Mimer's Head is a creativeengagement with this foundation. Much of it is my personalunderstanding and based on my unique experience. These mayor may not be the reader's experience or understanding. I amnot trying to start a catholic tradition and would rather seeMimer's Head start lively conversation. Perhaps it will be aconversation that leads to the reader's own with that wisest of Giants, Mimer.Furthermore, this is not another book just on the Runes.There have been many such books. Some of these areexcellent, others are not. I wanted to write a book thatcomments on some of the other and perhaps more importantaspects of our faith. These include theology, history, politics,morality, and spiritual experience. Of course, the Runes, being what they are, can include all of this, but much of thecurrent literature does not. Above all, I wish to inspire thereader and hope some of 
 Mimer's Head 
can be enjoyed over ahorn of mead, and lead one to reflection and enrichment.Enjoy!As a final note: Asatru draws heavily from the ancientfolkways of Northern European peoples. It embodies our native consciousness. It is our Soul. (Hail Mother Europa andHer Tribes and Tongues!) Hospitality is our noble virtue andthe Hall of Har is open to any genuine seeker. Wisdom isalways shared; ideology imposed. In our lore there is noinnate malice towards other peoples. We are not Nazis,neither are we meek about our heritage.Reading 1Heathenry is about living life to the fullest. It is aboutcelebration, aswell as, reverence for the awesome universe and the Gods thatembody it. It includes in its embrace of life; tradition, family,folk, and faith. Heathensdo not need to be coerced into living. The joy, challenge,majesty, and purpose are laid before us and given to us by theGods themselves.The word ‘heathen’ literally refers to those who live on the‘heath” or the countryside. This association is still useful
