    2b. Our Primal History

    [006/12] This is our primal history:

    Wralda, who is wholly good and eternal, created the potential. From this came time, and time wrought all things; even the very Earth herself. Earth bore all grasses, herbs, and trees; all cherished creatures and all dreaded creatures. All that is good and dear, she brought forth by day, and all that is evil and fearsome brought she forth by night. After the twelfth Yulefeast, she bore three girls:

    Lyda was of glowing hot,

    Finda of hot, and

    Frya of warm substance.

    Upon their birth, Wralda fed them with his breath so that mankind should be bound to him.[1] Soon after they matured, they began to find delight and fulfillment in their dreams.[2] Wralda’s ‘od’ entered into them,[3] and so each bore twelve sons and twelve daughters; twins each Yuletide. Of these, all mankind has come.

    Notes

    1. As the sisters can thus be considered daughters of Earth (matter) and Wralda (spirit), a relation would make sense in Frya’s case to the Titaness mother of the gods Rheia from several sources of Greek mythology, daughter of Gaea and Ouranos. Rheia was married to Kronos, who can be related to the Bearer (KRODER), who was the Fryas personification of time. A good online source for further study is www.theoi.com.
    2. ‘they began to find delight and fulfillment in their dreams’ (KRÉION HJA FRÜCHDA ÀND NOCHTA ANDA DRÁMA) — could also be translated: ‘became fruitful and found delight in their dreams’ or even: ‘they began to dream of fruits and nuts‘.
    3. ‘od’ (OD) — apparently a term related to fertilization; possibly related to Middle-Dutch ‘(h)o(e)den’ (testicle(s)) and ‘odevare’ (stork), associated with delivery of babies. Also, the Old Greek word ὠδις (ódis) can mean birth. Luther’s Bible used ‘Odem’ for God’s life-giving breath (see ÁDAMA). In the Prose Edda and Heimskringla by Snorri Sturluson, Óðr is mentioned as Freyja’s husband and father of two daughters. Ottema misplaced the period from the source text and chose to relate OD to Latin ‘odium’: hatred; a mistake already pointed out in 1871 by Cornelis over de Linden, who suggested it should rather be related to fertilization.

    Sandbach 1876

    [p.13 cont.] This is our earliest history.

    Wr-alda,[1] who alone is eternal and good, made the beginning. Then commenced time. Time wrought all things, even the earth. The earth bore grass, herbs, and trees, all useful and all noxious animals. All that is good and useful she brought forth by day, and all that is bad and injurious by night.

    After the twelfth Juulfeest she brought forth three maidens:—

    Lyda out of fierce heat.

    Finda out of strong heat.

    Frya out of moderate heat.

    When the last came into existence, Wr-alda breathed his spirit upon her in order that men might be bound to him. As soon as they were full grown they took pleasure and delight in the visions of Wr-alda.

    Hatred found its way among them.

    They each bore twelve sons and twelve daughters—at every Juul-time a couple. Thence come all mankind.

    Note Sandbach

    1. Wr-alda, always written as a compound word, meaning the Old Ancient, or the Oldest Being.
