NOTE: I don’t know what brought it on but when I woke up at 4 AM Audie was having a sleep episode: the first one I have noticed in quite some time.
Plans: VA appointment, prep for semester..
AM Prayer: Wednesday, we pray to the Divine couple: Wodan/Odin and Frija/Frigga, lighting royal blue (for Wodan/Odin) and light blue (for Frija/Frigga) candles.
Rune god! Wolf God! Raven god! WODAN/ODIN!! We call out to you, not as a slave or on bended knee, but on our feet and opened-armed as befits your offspring. Watch us as we struggle, but the fight and fame must both be ours! Grant us that victory which we win by OUR might and mane! If we live well, Wodan/Odin, grant us access to one of the Great Halls where we may feast, drink and be merry with those who have gone before us until the time comes to live or fight once more. WODAN/ODIN, HAIL!!!
Frija/Frigga, teach us to be patient but not passive; wise but not haughty in our wisdom; far seeing yet not blind to that which is before us. May we nurture life, increase life, and live our own lives more fully. Through you we give honor to our human mothers. Through you we see all the beauty that surrounds us as well. FRIJA/FRIGGA, HAIL!!
Born of fire, born of ice
Life is lived at such a price
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
AM Rune: Mannaz (neutral): so it could either be
Outcome: We’ll see…
An early bicycle ride thru the neighborhoods: things are getting better!
The VA cooperated 100% and signed off everything on my physical for the upcoming semester! They COOPERATED very well!
Applied for an online self background check as required for the Rad Tech program.
Looked for work
We spent a goodly amount of time at the Flying Moose Antique Mall http://flying-moose.com/. It was every bit as fun as going to a museum!
Heimdall’s story has long been one of my favs. However, when I read the story from the Poetic Eddas, in both Hollander and Bellows, it seems like the story was saying that the gods only favor the upper class. That’s why I was glad to read the Larrington translation that indicates a story over time. In Viktor Ryberg’s rendition of the same story, however, there has been a serious AH-HA moment! Rydberg tells the story as Heimdall taught all of mankind things they needed to know about life and the good things about the gods. He laid with each class of people, signifying that the gods were showing no favor of class structure, all have a genetic connection to the gods and the breath of the Divine, DIVINE ORDER exists in all of them; regardless of Thrall, Karl or Jarl!!! This has been a seriously great epiphany!
Into Rydeberg therest of the evening…
PM Prayer: The Norns:
The Norns all three are present at birth
To weave our Fate from merriment to dearth
Urd, Verdandi and Skuld, the dark queens renowned
Glorious ladies ‘neath the Tree, work your mysteries in us now
That which “was” we clearly see
That which “is” formed now in our deeds
That which “will be”, will yet be; but cannot see
We celebrate the Norns, the Ladies Three, for eternity
PM Rune: none
