"Cattle die and kinsmen die, And so too must one die oneself; One thing I knew that never dies: The fame of a dead man's deeds."
"The life you lead echoes in eternity."
"Age after age, when justice is crushed, I come back; for the protection of the good, for the destruction of evil-doers, for the establishment of the Reign of the Righteousness, again am I born on earth to save the world."
"My church is not of gold and silver, it lies beyond the judgment of souls."

"By the power of the Stone, the phoenix burns to ashes, but the ashes give him life again. Thus does the phoenix molt and change its plumage, which afterward a bright and shining and as lovely as before...such power does the Stone give give a man that flesh and bones are at once made young again. The Stone is also called the Grail.
"Hear now how those who are called to the Grail are made known. On the Stone, round the edge, appear letters inscribed, giving the name and the lineage of each one, maid and boy, who is to make the blessed journey."
PARZIVAL -- Wolfran von Eschenbach
"Destroyed is my badness; annihilated is my evil. Put away is the Sun, which was my own. I wander on the path that I know, in the direction of the island of justification. I arrived in the land of the heavenly horizon; I pass through the holy portal. O Gods who come to meet me! Stretch out your hands toward me! I have become a God, one among you. I have restored the eye of the Sun. After it had been injured on the battle by the two adversaries."

ODIN SACRIFICED HIS MOST BELOVED SON, SO THAT THE GODS MIGHT ONE DAY RETURN AND LEAD US - THE CHILDREN OF THE GODS - TO A NEW AGE - THE GOLDEN AGE OF GIMLI!
THE DAWNING OF THAT NEW AGE IS AT HAND!
Our generation has in the last thirty years seen a revival in interest in the old faiths of our ancestors. As our civilization has passed into the modern age of globalism, dominated by crass materialism, soulless consumerism and rootless multiculturalism, more and more of our people are turning away from the beliefs we were born into because they have lost their spirit. Many seek spiritual enlightenment in foreign religions or New Age cults, or turn toward high-tech cults that worship extraterrestrials. But others are discovering they are being drawn toward the Gods and Goddesses that their ancestors celebrated long ago.
What draws more and more of our people to the belief systems our ancestors celebrated hundreds, even thousands of years ago? Why do so many today find reassurance in reading the myths of the old Gods, and exploring the folk customs that celebrated them? What irresistible force seems to originate deep in our souls, calling us back to the Gods and belief systems of Old Europe?
For years Bob Blumetti has sought the answers to these questions through ceremonial and individual meditation on the runes and Gods. Conveyed to him is a new understanding of the old Myths. Never before has anyone tried to present what Blumetti has accomplished: a modern understanding of the old tales of the Gods. This Web site is for those engaged in the journey to seek the Gods and Goddesses of Asgard and understand how they can help us build a new age—THE NEW AGE OF GIMLI.
To help us, Blumetti has completed a labor of love - THE BOOK OF BALDER RISING, and now his second book, VRILOLOGY. Twenty years ago he swore to the Gods and Goddesses that he would write this book for them. Its purpose is to help the Children of the Gods—the Asatru—find the path back to them.
RUNE POEM BY ROBERT BLUMETTI
"I welcome all signs that a more virile, warlike age is about to begin, which will restore honor to courage above all. For this age shall prepare the way for one yet higher, and it shall gather the strength that this higher age will require one day---the age that will carry heroism into the search for knowledge and that will wage wars for the sake of ideas and their consequences. To this end we now need many preparatory courageous human beings...---human beings who know how to be silent, lonely, resolute, and content and constant in invisible activities;...human beings distinguished as much by cheerfulness, patience, unpretentiousness, and contempt for all great vanities as by magnanimity in victory and forbearance regarding the small vanities of the vanquished;...human beings...accustomed to command with assurance but instantly ready to obey when that is called for---equally proud, equally serving their own cause in both cases, more endangered human beings, more fruitful human beings, happier beings! For believe me: the secret for harvesting from existence the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment is---to live dangerously!"
