chatter 22    so easy and natural     --  symbolic language of myths and kvćđi, 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.

Óđinn given to Óđinn, my self given to my Self  (Hávamál vísa 138 and on) --  gnoţi seauton (know thyself)

Valkyrja is mighty and powerful;  but her role is much misunderstood;

the magnificent symbolic language of myths, and all the lovely personifications, can be misunderstood by those men who do not know the whole picture;

a valkyrja does not carry dead men from a battlefield to Valhöll, but is an aid and an instrument to lead individual consciousness to Ásgarđur, the abode of gods, and there individuality becomes pure thought only;

but not even a pure thought is able to enter ginnungagap, ---   ginnungagap is what we are in pure essence  ---   because a thought is an all-worldly thing!

 

as every horse is willing to run home, so pure thought lets go of everything, gets "lost", and that is the purpose of performing a valkyrja;

if we strain, or use any means to direct the mind, we only spoil the whole process  --  which is as automatic, and sure to be, as the good horse brings us back home;

 

the spear is to open up for the flow of life  --  called blood in mythical language  --  so und (wound) is not on a body, not on a living man, and the less on a dead man;

it is the language of myths to use worldly phenomena to describe the hidden meaning;
only the pure men understand;
the coarse men laugh;

  

yaas is beautiful appearance, honor, glory, worth, splendor, a person of respectability;
thought to be the name of Skírnir in Skírnismál, the ray (geisli) from divinity, lord Freyr, to Gerđur who praises material gold only, hold Ymis, not understanding the divine gold, hodd gođa;

 

 

Gerđur drags paradise (fence) along into human life, i.e. lives in Gymisgarđar;
born as a man, but has animal nature in her, and lacks understanding of her own divine nature;

  

lord Freyr falls in love with Gerđur (listen to Skírnismál); 

Skírnir is a splendid fabulous ray (geisli) from divinity to man;  

 

  

Gerđur (i.e. we on coarse stages) does not know that entering into the divine part of her life, is just as easy as going into ones own house;

no effort is needed, but, we have to perform the effortless valkyrja;

so, an effort is needed, but it is an effortless effort,
and valkyrja is the only action that does not bind us to the vicious circle of actions (impression, seed of future desire, next action....)

Valkyrja is a liberating action, a fórn (sacrifice) of everything worldly for a while;
and the worldly stuff just waits for us in the meantime; 
and we are better off when we return, as we have gained fimbulrúnir (karmasu kaushalam, skill in action); 

    

if we push the mind we ruin the whole automatic and easy process; 

the mind runs from one thing to another in the world of objects of the senses; sometimes likened to a monkey that runs from tree to tree to find one banana here and another there;

if the monkey finds a bunch of bananas, he sits down and enjoys;

so the mind, if it once has found the supreme happiness within, settles on that, as this is what we, actually, are looking for the whole life!  

and the purpose of life is the expansion of happiness;  

 

we can not stand outside of Hnitbjörg and wait for the blessings to come down on us;
hoping, praying, waiting, talking about right and wrong, talking about sins and some god, does not get us anywhere;

so as Óđinn got Rati to make a hole, turned himself into a worm, slipped into Hnitbjörg, so we should do;  

and we meet Gunnlöđ, she gives us sips of the mead of wisdom, and she loves us, but we soon return to the world of work and thinking with the wisdom imbibed into us;

  

living the life of another brings danger;

we must be on our own path;  
do never meddle up with another man's dharma;
we help our fellow-men;  we can tell them about the short-cut to Valhöll, i.e. how to perform a real valkyrja, but everyone must live his own life on his own evolutionary way to perfection; 

consciousness (Óđinn),
our human pure nervous system (Sleipnir),
our servant to fórn (valkyrja, the performance of fórn)  ---   is all we need to gain the mead of wisdom, fimbulrúnir;   

   

Úbs!  a man???

sometimes we are not sure if all men can carry that title: a man;

but the gods and goddesses try their very best in every myth;  i just hope that we listen and understand the divine profound message.
