I could read all the books in the world about You, and still not know You. I could dig holes in all the places where You were first called, and never find You. I could seek You in all the countries Your myths came from, and never see You. I could seek out the best storytellers in the world to regale me with Your tales, and never hear You. I could touch all Your images and holy places and never feel You. I could do all these things and more, but to no avail, if my heart, mind and spirit have no place for You.
I erect the Hof in my heart, that it may be stirred and welcoming to You. I erect the Hof in my mind, that it may be open and inviting to You. I erect the Hof in my soul, that it may be pure and open my Being to You.
I welcome You with all I am. I welcome You into my life, my Work, Myself, because in knowing You I have been blessed beyond measure. In knowing You, I know that failure bring lessons. In knowing You, I know lessons bring change. In knowing You, I have become a better person. In knowing You, I have had to change. In knowing You, my Work is better fulfilled. In knowing You, I know peace in chaos. In knowing You, I am more than I was.
Thank You for coming into my life. Thank You for inflicting Yourself where I was closed. Thank You for showing me a God I would be far poorer for never having known.
Ves ðu heil, Loki.
