Our modest proposal: In the interest of unity and a calmer World, we recommend humanity, from this point on, "Follow" the Sun.
Or, as we call the Sun, Sol.
We can all agree Sol is unarguably obvious, undeniably powerful, and undisputedly the source and maintainer of all Life and Energy on Earth. Sol is not jealous, demanding, or cruel; it's presence is seen, or felt, every moment; and it gives freely and asks nothing in return.
When our beliefs are based on the above truths (rather than arbitrary and divisive opinions) we become united as a people and a world, and then there can be no more hate, mistrust and violence based on those beliefs.
No longer subject to a variety of warring and sparring belief systems - no longer held in fear by invisible, uncaring, mean-spirited and silent gods.
No longer at the mercy of hyper-enthusiastic, often robotic, followers of these ghostly gods and their unasked for and unwarranted strictures on: thought - behaviour - curiosity - art - clothing.
To be Pagan will be to finally return to your natural inclinations of Wonderment of the Universe and Nature, and not its blind, ignorant, and often brutal exploitation. Of being aware you are connected to Nature, not separate from it. Nature is sacred for the Pagan, mistreating it and disrespecting it is Turp.
Unlike the ancient Pagan Codes, we have (against serious religious resistance) finally enlightened ourselves to such a point that we recognize our blindness and are no longer bound by superstition and ignorance. We need to use that knowledge now to develop our modern and sane Paganism.
By acknowledging that our commonalities are greater than our differences, and that what we share is much greater than what we own, we find the first principle of our Code to be Respect.
Respect for self. Respect for others. Respect for animals and plants and Earth. With Respect we stop poisoning ourselves for money and power, and begin to truly Live.
There are no, and should not be, chief priests or priestesses, popes, or prophets. Each of us is the Priest and Priestess, each of us is the prophet. We cannot any longer allow an individual's, or cabal's, opinions to rule the lives of other people. This has led to horrific deeds and Turps in the past.
There are no official agencies, congresses, Temples, or associations that have any right to tell anyone how the Sols should or must live. Only that a Code, such as the one here, is an agreed upon path towards sanity, and that unified beliefs such as these here form our core.
Our simple unifying principles: we all believe in and follow Sol. All are allowed to Appreciate as they wish, are free to speak their minds, that these allowances are, in return, given to every other of the Sols, and that Respect is our first principle.
To be a Kraftigen entails a responsibility. To make informed decisions requires knowledge. Knowledge requires study. To speak with authority about something you know nothing of, makes one a fool. We encourage Sols to avoid fools, think about what they say to others, and to educate themselves as the need arises.
Innovate every day, and re-discover yourself each moment.
Some further thoughts from us:
Message from the Editor, Julius Schön
I hope that the ideas presented here will be of use and importance, and my primary goal is to be clear and understandable and that no one is misled. To that end, with the internet as it is today, full of Trolls and Spoofers and mis-quoters, I will digitally "sign" all the text here on this site.
Each sub-section link on this page has its own link to its signed copy. The link is found at the bottom of each sub-section window.
If you had any problems opening the sub-sections from the links on this page, here is a page that lists them all for easy reading.
And here is this text, from this home page, in PGP signed format.
If you are interested in reading details about digital signing, or want to verify signatures for yourself, read more about PGP encryption keys.
Digitally signing text makes it impossible for anyone to change one letter of text we have written without it being detectable, and so misquotes and the like can be refuted.
For anyone with interest in verifying my signatures, you will need my PGP Public Key, one I've made to never expire for internet publications, on your digital keyring. You can find this on any PGP Public Key server and import it under this Key ID: 0x74E59DD3
Or go to this link to this PGP Link (which will open in another tab or window) and copy my PGP public key to paste it into your PGP software.
This site is under development and perhaps in future we will add more content, so visit again occasionally. Share this with friends. Visit and participate in the discussions on the Community page. You can find the editor's email address here if you'd like to volunteer to participate in development in some way.
Here are some of our favourite interesting and educational links.
