June 5, 2010 - Aesc Reversed
Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)
The ash is exceedingly high and precious to men.
With its sturdy trunk it offers a stubborn resistance,though attacked by many a man
Aesc reversed denotes that the pure force of the Upper World is turned downward, flowing into the worlds below. In the sense that it is a symbol of the primal substance, often called aether, prima materia, azoth, or spirit, it isn’t free flowing and purely available, but instead is grounded into the world of substance. It’s downward flow is vitalizing and purifying existence. In a sense, it is fortunate if you turn your focus towards the material world and engage with it as an expression of the immanent divine. It is there that the energy is abundant, and in connecting with it, you can fill yourself today.
