chatter 18  ┴lfheimar      --  symbolic language of myths and kvŠ­i, 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.

Ë­inn given to Ë­inn, my self given to my Self  (Hßvamßl vÝsa 138 and on) --  gno■i seauton (know thyself)

 

this is small a sthapatya-ved house, door facing due east;
and elf-cliffs also have their doors facing east;   

          

(art piece:  the holy place of elves)

Fenris˙lfur (Fenrir) is a symbol of accumulated evil in the world of men;

when men violate the laws of nature day after day and year after year, they, in the end, cause the patience and tolerance of mother nature to take no more, and she bursts;

in the perpetual dragon cycles, where they bite their own tail to allow no brake in the world, we are caught, if we do not know how to perform a valkyrja, be without the 3-guna (qualities of nature);

thereby giving in return to nature for her gifts and care;   

 


the wolf is used as a symbol for a great devourer in the world 

 

but ┴lfheimar are all about something delicate, and something of inner nature of man, the seeking of Truth and divine treasure; 

 

Bj÷rn Jˇnsson, Manitoba,
a book about myths read in the stars and sky

Bj÷rn sees the death of Baldur as an eclipse;
all the little things in the story are there to be found, Hyrrokkin, the dwarf, Nanna's sorrow, the ship of the cremation.....   

 

and we always come across these perpetual cycles   

      

sun is in the danger of being swallowed

but nobody is afraid because we are spiritual beings, and even if the whole world comes to an end, we can not die;

if we keep our body-cells pure and stress-less, we are ever-young, however old this our present body becomes;
this is:  being loved by the gods, and dying young even at old age; 

at ragnar÷k the second grief of Frigg will be, when our present askur will collapse;   

 
pieta, jesu's body, rome, michelangelo, san pietro               Hermˇ­ur rides to Helia to reclaim Baldur

fyrri harmur Friggjar, the former grief of Frigg, is when H÷­ur (our blindness) killed Baldur (our sun-god) using a mistletoe (a plant without roots);  

     

Loki in the world of men, and our spiritual life in the sphere of gods, and the easy way into ginnungagap;

to sustain life, sustain the gods, we transcend, and the gods will sustain us in return;

we give back --  gj÷f skal gjalda (give back) --  and by thus sustaining we are sustained;

there is never anything to fear, but we should always seek inner bliss, sŠla of goddess Sˇl, all our life, and hamingja (eternal lasting true happiness) will shine through us onto our fellow-men and surroundings for the blessings of the whole world.

elves are elvur, rivers, channels, ways, into the Treasure;
elves are delicate symbolic language for luring us inwards into ourselves to find what we are looking for all our life;
