Siren #002 Hagalaz

In Ancient Greece, slavery was common, and Aristotle had an interesting theory on the nature of slavery, calling it a natural phenomenon.

“People with superior reasoning powers would rule over those inferior in reasoning.” Reasoning [noun] is the action of thinking about something in a logical, sensible way.

In a way, it brings us here; social slavery will always be part of our society. Desire to be accepted by society, fitting in into certain social groups, relationships, celebrities, government, and even our own emotions and our mindset. If someone in society does not fit the boxed mindset we are conditioned to fit, they are called odd, corky, weird, strange, etc.

We are slaves in many different ways, and most times not obvious to ourselves.

If we use stop and think about it, we can see examples of our “natural slavery” in our daily life.

Hagalaz means – hail, breal. Hagalaz is an external force that man cannot control. It entails destruction, but after it comes rejuvenation – it signifies that as a slave of our your routine, comfort, or a mindset, we can liberate ourselves,

“I will not be “famous,” “great.” I will go on adventuring, changing, opening my mind and my eyes, refusing to be stamped and stereotyped. The thing is to free one’s self: to let it find its dimensions, not be impeded.”

― Virginia Woolf, A Writer’s Diary
