A modest proposal: In the interest of unity and a calmer World, we urge you to "worship" the Sun.
Or, as we call it here, the Kraft.
No more hate and mistrust based on beliefs because our beliefs will be the same.
No longer subject to a variety of warring and sparring gods - invisible, uncaring, and mean spirited. No longer at the mercy of robotic followers of these invisible gods and their strictures on thought, behaviour, curiosity, 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 anugly.
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/ess, 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 anuglies in the past.
There are no official agencies, congresses, Temples, or associations that have any right to tell anyone how the Kraftigen should or must be lived. 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 the Kraft. All are allowed to Appreciate as they wish, are free to speak their minds, that these allowances are, in return, given to every other Kraftigen, 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 Kraftigens 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.
The following is a bit technical, but for those so inclined:
In this way it is 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.
This is done with PGP encryption keys, which gives the ability to sign a document or text in a such a way that another person, who has the "public key" of the signer, can verify that the signed text is exactly the same as when it was signed. For anyone of interest in this, you will need my PGP Public Key on your digital keyring.
Each sub-section on this page has its own link to its signed copy at the bottom. And here is this text, from this home page, in PGP signed format.
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.

Remember, we are all sparks of the Kraft.
