Death is no violation of life. We experience little deaths all through life. Death feeds life, and life death, because they aren’t really separate.
This is the rune laguz. If the rune seems to suggest the word lake or leek, there is a reason for that. This is the rune of water, flow and that entire dynamic in the world around us. So where should we start first in discussing flow?
The flow of our lives?
Where does it originate?
Flow is the nature of life energy, the air we breath, the water that makes the greatest portion of our bodies, really everything is flow just some things show that more obviously than others. It’s often said that we should go with the flow which I myself view as generally irresponsible advice. Do you know why?
It’s a form of apathy? It seems to encourage an abandoned attitude denying form or structure. It seems to suggest that one shouldn’t really care too much about things as they are right now and implies that a person’s drives should be given only passing priority. Is this fair to say?
The rune looks like a straight back and indicates direction. It does indeed, and the flow of the earth’s waters ultimately shapes everything on our planet. The shape of our land masses, the distribution of living things, even the emergence of weather conditions. Would it be good advice to tell someone in a hurricane to just go with the flow?
No, the flow will take you out to sea. Our physical reality is shaped by flows. Nuclear decay is flow. Radio broadcasts are flow. The now very vital if not free world of the internet is flow. But flow does follow patterns, cycles specifically, and the cycles have a fractal relationship to each other.
Recently there has been increasing evidence that even the seemingly singular direction of time is nothing of the sort. I have been delving into quantum computing. If the many worlds theory holds true, a quantum computer would perform its function because its accessing all the various versions of itself in all the many worlds in which it exists which would functionally make those many objects a single unified object across many worlds or dimensions.
Some of my previous talks have seemed to imply that each being sort of exists in a state of multiple personality. This was not my intention to suggest, and is not at all the truth. You exist in more ways than you are currently aware of, but your personal will is not manifold, not truly conflicted in any way. The reason it seems like you experience only one outcome, one event, well… Perhaps a metaphor is in order. What happens if you drop a large bolder in a stream?
Splash. Indeed, and then what?
Could dam it up. Potentially.
Water would go around or rise until it spills over the top.
Let’s work with that splash and then go from there.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
