βηχιον

Dear pagan readers,

I’m taking a few minutes of my time to introduce you to a plant I’m currently harvesting through the Laurentides Mountains. Gaius Plinius Secundus, better known as ”Pliny The Elder”, mentioned and prescribed this wonderful plant in his gigantic work called Naturalis Historia under the name farfarum. It is surely one of the greatest encyclopedia made in the pagan era. Πεδάνιος Διοσκουρίδης, better known as Pedanius Dioscorides, also mentioned the ”Filius ante patrem” in his huge work called Περί ύλης ιατρικής(De materia medica libre). He called it βηχιον(bêchion) from βηχις meaning ”which calms cough”. It is a plant linked to the ánd(breath of life, thought, spirit).

The plant is commonly known as the Coltsfoot or Tussilago farfara. It is a plant whose blooming comes before the growth of the leaves. That’s why it was called ”Filius ante patrem”(the son before the father). This plant is used in many concoctions to heal pectoral illness such as bronchitis and also skin problems.

The flower heads are edible raw or cooked. The leaves are also edible. Very young, they can be eaten raw, especially their petiole is juicy. Soon, the leaves will become rubbery and are better cooked. The flower and leaves are good sources of vitamin C, zinc and also contains a natural antibiotic. Also the ash of burnt and dried leaves create a salt substitute. It was used as a condiment once upon a time.

It is one of the first flower that BalduR offers us each year when spring comes. Like I already asked you in a previous article: will you refuse such a beautiful gift from the beautiful shining gods?

United we’ll stand, divided we’ll fall

The biggest threat to the European race throughout the ages have always been our discords and dividing. May these discords have been provoke by the invasion of Europe by judeo-christianity or by political and cultural factors, the result is the same; we are always the losers whatever the motivation is in such situation. What happened at Cluain Tarbh on Good Friday 1014 or, to a greater extent, what happened in the whole of Europe between 1914 up to nowadays are good examples; once united European kins fought each other and finally, they severely suffered great loss and also lost all control on the governance of their common homeland. There’s many other examples worth mention for sure, but that is not the point; let’s not spatter old and recent wounds of Europe.

The point is that regardless of nationality, as European brothers and sisters, we need to stick together no matter what. Regardless of political, cultural and economical factors, we must stick together; otherwise, we will fall and be cursed into oblivion. The whole European culture will disappear if we do not react and put our discords aside, or even better; if we could clear away all of these dividing and borders.History showed us that even divided, we managed to survive. At some point, we barely managed to live well. But it didn’t last for long. Weakened and tear apart, nonetheless, we managed to survive. But for how long? Not for very long I bet, if we continue this way. We must react now, we should have react stronger centuries ago! We should have fight and lighten up the ever growing darkness way before! If we don’t react and light up the way for others to follow, we are not worth saving.

These words might have sounded pretty depressive and a bit defeatist, but no, it is totally realistic; we are not in good shape. But remember that the only reason why we are three feet in the grave is our dividing. Imagine if we could unite all European individuals, families, communities and nations working together for the same cause. We would clean Europe and live a Golden Age once again! Like I said, even divided, we managed to survive. Imagine what we would be able to accomplish all together! United under the banner of Europe there’s no limit for us! Ôðalism is our path to unification, as it is the natural European way of life. Like I said yesterday, do not be afraid of the Light, as our salvation depends on it.

So I ask every single proud European; will you fight your brothers and by the same way help the jews in their quest for the destruction of Europe? Or do you prefer to fight side by side against the true enemies? United we’ll stand, divided we’ll fall. It is yours to choose now! The jews have always apply the maxim ”Divide ut regnes” in their quest for the fall of Europe. Let us apply the maxim ”Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno” and Europe will bloom once again!
