A saying of the Nordic tradition reads: “May our leader be our bridge.” Thus, real monarchs were the steadfast personification of the life “beyond ordinary life.”
Beneficial spiritual influences used to radiate upon the world of mortal beings from the mere presence of such men, from their “pontifical” mediation, from the power of the rites that were rendered efficacious by their power, and from the institutions of which they were the center.
These influences permeated people’s thoughts, intentions, and actions, ordering every aspect of their lives and constituting a fit foundation for luminous, spiritual realizations. These influences also made propitious the general conditions for prosperity, health, and ‘good fortune.
Julius Evola (1898 – 1974)
“Revolt Against the Modern World”
