i actually have a book on reading runes...in high school i used to be able to read and write with runes...
and yes it is better to make your own runes...some people will anoint their runes with their own blood during the process of making them...this forms a stronger bond with the runes...if anyone is interested in the book let me know, it's in pdf form...
i've always viewed all divination items as having a "spirit" of their own...runes, tarot, i-ching trigrams...of course i also view my swords as having their own unique "spirit"...bonding with the spirit increases the effectiveness of the item...
these old shoes are worn and ragged,
smudged with stained unsightly tears
night and day my feet have dragged
these old shoes everywhere
to wander in the wilderness
to laugh and love the living night
what terrors might an echo bring?
or windy sighs of soft delight?
to walk the ways of desperate days
in a desperate daze of hurt and woe
where streets are made of razors blades
and glitter grin at broken soles
to run faster than the wind that screams
and mocks my failures as i fly
to run so fast i catch the dreams
that long ago had past me by
these old shoes are worn and ragged
by the march theyve made to here from there
night and day my feet still drag
these old shoes everywhere
I am not following this thread too much, but, I wanted to comment:
I also base my beliefs off my own direct observations, and will trust these even when popular consensus disagrees.
Never had your senses fooled?
My own observations have been recorded on video, for later review.
I have no doubt of what I've observed first hand.
I am sure you understand what I am referring to.
What is a House of Cards!!!! I'm still only up to Season 2 of that Winterfell dragon sword show whatever its called :pinch: :lol:
But yea the message, made me think about when they tell you that 'you can do anything' its not exactly true, everything is not possible.
But it doesn't mean you cannot chase an unreachable goal if you enjoy the chase. If striving for something in particular, you gotta re-assess progress and direction as much as possible though else you can get confused about effort versus outcome, as resilience should not be the same thing as being stubborn IMO.
The pic also made me think that some things need the next step to be the focus to find the target, and some things need the target to be the focus to work backwards and find the next step. Dream big, but dream plenty perhaps!?
It should be why they have judges, to make individual intepretations and compensations to achieve the best possible outcome from a bad situation. Generally speaking, smaller crimes could have more potential for leniency with kids IMO, but the worse the crime is the less room there should probably be - because the impacts of the crime increase with the crime which might point to more and more requirement to recognize the victim's more and more in setting the punishment. I think this can still happen for adults, but to a lesser extent as adults should now be role models for children and fully cognizant of the law and the need for following it.... well the ones that make sense at least
Because most Men or the stereotypical "religious" male fears the feminine aspects, things to do with the reflection of the Sun - The Moon, or is told to fear these aspects, Men do all they can to reject the women inside of themselves. Men deny their "wholeness" by denying their female, feminine, emotional and heart centered self. Men are taught (generally) that emotions are bad and since women are "emotional", then women are bad or need to be controlled. And I find that women are instructed to "hate" men for various of other reasons. In the end, we Love/Hate each other in our attempts to have union with each other.
We are born into a body that has a form and that form has predisposed aspects - Male or Female (Yes I know that more various exist, but I am writing about the generic concept). However, our spirit nature is whole and encompasses both the masculine logic and the feminine emotions - and more.
In the end, we need to reconcile our "hatred" of the sexes in order to heal ourselves and the world that we live in. Until this "battle of the sexes" stops, will we only know "hate" and threads like this will exist.
Are threads like this helpful? Do these types of conversations bring us to greater understanding of each other? Does it heal the ancestral wounds caused by such distinctions? Does it allow us to clear our field so we can be better Jedi? za
Ultimately, what is the purpose of this thread?
i am genuinely interested in growing
i engage in these conversations because i have things that ive learned in my life which i know can benefit someone else and because i know that there are other people adound me who have the puzzle pieces that i am missing
when i talk i do my best to be completely honest about everything i say and i give the benefit of the doubt that the majority of others are as well
and that at some level we have these conversations because we want to be the best that we are capable of being
even those who dont change and who refuse others are usually imo doing so because they/we believe that its for their/our best interesnt for being the best of ourselves
so will this thread particular make any difference for any of us?
it depends on how open we can be and how safe we can feel in being open and in how directly into our own motives we are capable of looking
People who say "meh" when they see someone do something that took a lot of practice and hard work because they saw a professional do it better in a video. Even worse, when they have done nothing even close to it, nor could they if they tried (without the hard work that is). That is being dismissive and it is hurtful and insulting.
