Today below this writing I’ll leave information about the history of the nine noble virtues, but well also talk about what they mean to us. It is true that they were set in motion by national socialist. These core values are not a bad thing and never should be taken lightly. Although the folk know a days need to be weeded through. Some have trouble leaving their past ills behind and have no want of change. This in itself brings us to the first for the week which is courage.
Don’t kid yourself everyone has that primordial fear of the unknown and what they don’t understand. Fear in the face of an advisory or a feat is the driving force ones mental and moral capacity to show courage. Mastery of such is self-control and in my view is never one hundred percent. Shocking the body into fight or flight responses is taxing and takes its toll afterwards the physical and mental demands can leave you drained. This is courage the kind of courage that speaks volume, the courage of what most consider today is a shade. A derogatory/degenerate element of the current culture to do what was out of the normal bounds in which know has become “Normal”. For the society of today what they considered to be an acted of rebellion has become a standard in which they have made plain and mundane. The only thing at this point they have done is made our courage impregnable and or faith stronger. By doing this the natural cycle well turn again.
But the question is how well we keep our folk strong when the tides turn? after it is said and done.
Below is a brief history provided by Wikileaks
The Nine Noble Virtues, NNV, or 9NV are two sets of moral and situational ethical guidelines within certain sects of Odinism and Ásatrú. One set was codified by former member of Sir Oswald Mosley‘s British Union of Fascists and National Socialists, John Yeowell (a.k.a. Stubba) and John Gibbs-Bailey (a.k.a. Hoskuld) of the Odinic Rite in 1974, and the other set codified by Stephen A. McNallen of the Asatru Folk Assembly in 1983.
However, others believe that the earlier set, the one the Odinic Rite claim they codified, were originally put together and labelled as the Nine Noble Virtues (the “9NV”) by Edred Thorsson during his time with the original AFA. They are supposedly based on virtues found in historical Norse paganism, gleaned from various sources including the Poetic Edda (particularly the Havamal and the Sigrdrífumál), and as evident in the Icelandic Sagas).
The Nine Charges are a different list of more explicitly phrased moral or ethical guidelines codified at about the same time. The Six-Fold Goal is yet another list of virtues, given as “Right, Wisdom, Might, Harvest, Frith and Love” by Stephen Flowers (a.k.a. Edred Thorsson) in 1989.
The Aesirian Code of Nine is also used by some practitioners of Heathenism, consisting of “honor, knowledge, protect, flourish, change, fairness, conflict, balance and control.”

- To maintain candor and fidelity in love and devotion to the tried friend: though he strikes me I will do him no scathe.

- To deal not hardly with the humble and the lowly.
- To remember the respect that is due to great age.
- To suffer no evil to go unremedied and to fight against the enemies of Faith, Folk and Family: my foes I will fight in the field, nor will I stay to be burnt in my house.
- To succor the friendless but to put no faith in the pledged word of a stranger people.
- If I hear the fool’s word of a drunken man I will strive not: for many a grief and the very death growth from out such things.
