chatter 15   Gungnir   Frigg    symbolic servants in life     names derived directly from sanskrit into norse mythology     --  symbolic language of myths and kvi, allegory in god-spells

i am telling thee one thing:   we are ginnungagap

we are the great void, the womb of the universe, the Fullness, Truth, Eternity, Reality, Divinity.

inn given to inn, my self given to my Self  (Hvaml vsa 138 and on) --  gnoi seauton (know thyself)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

sanskrit priyaa is Frigg

karka, krabbi, perhaps a symbol of Frigg  ---  Skkvabekkur and Fensalir indicate waters  ---
and the symbols are endlessly divers and some have many many levels of meaning;

but there is a meaning,  ---  there are many layers of meaning in each on symbol;
we understand according to our stage of understanding only;

we understand stages that we have been through, but we do not perceive those above, those who are waiting for us;  

Ginnungagap does not encourage us to live a spiritual life;  the responsibility for our life and the progress to perfection and the support of evolution, is all in our own hands;

we are It, so being It is easy, living It in our life is easy  --   but yet all of us do not know this Truth!

  

mead of wisdom, honey-wine, wine of Valfur (inn, consciousness),

in myths sometimes called blood, and flow of blood in myths is the free flow of consciousness,
(not real blood of killed men at all) 

und the river  -- but there are countless rivers in norse mythology --  is the flow that upholds the universe, dharma;

nothing is stagnated, all is moving, and the aim and purpose is evolution towards perfection;

not only of the universe but also of us, as mankind, as individuals;

Shttur, siddhartha,     (a name for inn);

Gungnir, spear of inn, weapon of consciousness, is vibrations;

these vibrations, bhram, vipra, vip, become particles, the first trace of creation, when vibrations in consciousness become particles;

Gangleri, gangalahari, the wave of wisdom from the river (symbolic) Ganga;
Gangleri is one of the many many names of inn;  

Eldir and Fimafengur the servants of gir at gis, the huge waters being metaphor for the abyss of consciousness;
we have to understand their names,
as Eldir has fire, perhaps the fire of knowledge is lit,
the other one, Fimafengur, quickly brings all that we need;  --  and what do we need????

it is not about a fiesta where man eats and drinks worldly food for his body!
in the feast at gis where we have spiritual "food";

and Vilbjrg mun vaka (will be awake):  we gain liberation from the bonds of matter and energy, from the binding influence of the objects of the senses, and we now go in for higher qualities in life;

we become deep and profound as the abyss of gir (the mighty life-giving ocean), and can not be easily moved ----  not easily moved is the ocean;
but we are liquid-like, ever moving, as the ocean, with little waves on top (thoughts in the world), huge waves inside (the source of thought);  

Byggvir and Beyla, servants of Freyr the symbol of peace, abundance in material life, wellbeing, progeny, fertility and prosperity;

bygg is barley, and Beyla is the maiden that kneads the dough for our bread;

personifications are amusing and lively, but some men (listeners of the teaching) are on a low stage as taking the personifications as people, real people in some abstract life;  

---    they are abstract powers in real life;

we have art-pieces that show gods and goddesses;  as is found in Greece and other places;
we have paintings of valkyries carrying on horseback dead bodies of fighters from the battlefield to the sky;
this has become a dangerous distortion;    Sleipnir, a horse, vehicle, is our nervous system;

valkyrja is a performance in our consciousness;

valkyrja we perform fully alive, and leaving the body is dyana (see chatter 1), inn given to inn for a while, not a death of a body;

we have to understand the names; 

all names (of people, domestic animals, places)  in Icelandic have a meaning, --  as names did in all languages long ago, but some have lost it --  and we have to understand the meaning of the name,

-- sometimes more than one meaning to each one!!! --

--  otherwise we can not "read" and understand the personification;

--   sometimes we feel that our old understanding is good enough and no need for any depth and additional knowledge;  --   but listen!  it can be very practical in daily life.

 

so:
by all means have personifications and enjoy them, but do no get into the dangerous trap to see them as people;

and: 
how are we going to explain the things and phenomena that we do not see with our worldly eyes, if we do not try to speak language that others understand, explain but the use of a-bit-tangible symbols from the world we know?
