the Runes, enough cannot be said,
for they are each expressions of an infinite mystery,
and each of the 24 Runic powers represents a true "seed"
that reality itself springs from- all manifest forces,
all appearances and phenomenon, from men to animals to giants and
from this world or any of the other eight worlds,
and the destiny of all beings, are ruled by the forces of the Runes
or the Mysteries.
A wise man or woman who penetrates the mysteries
of the Runes can access an inexhaustible well of knowledge just
as the All-Father did,
and gain a new destiny beyond life and death, just as he did.
Runes were first used over 1500 years ago by the East Goths,
and later appeared throughout England and Scandinavia. As
Christianity took hold,
the use of runic alphabets in divination became reviled as
a pagan practice.
The word "rune" itself comes from an early Anglo-Saxon
word meaning "secret" or "mystery",
and they remain an enigma to the world at large.
