Self Knowledge & the Runes

There is something earthy about the Runes and of course this is natural. The Runes are after all a ‘tree’alphabet. It is natural for them to ‘earth’ you. Ralph Blum explains:

“The Runes and their symbols were employed by warriors bent on conquest. It is my hope that in their contemporary use, the Runes will serve the Spiritual Warrior,the one whose goal is self-transformation. The sacred Hindu text Bhagavad Gita chapter 6, verse 5, says it succinctly:

Lift up the self by the Self

And don’t let the self droop down,

For the Self is the self’s only friend

And the self is the Self’s only foe.”
