August 31, 2010 - Isa
Isa is the vowel “i” (pronounced “ee)
Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)
Ice is very cold and immeasurably slippery;
it glistens as clear as glass and most like to gems;it is a floor wrought by the frost, fair to look upon
Isa is the rune of Ice, cold and stillness. In the depth of winter, when it is record cold temperatures, living things are dormant or seeking refuge from ice, and snow that surrounds them. This is a trend that even appears in warmer climes, as the winter months in Southern California, often the streets are emptier at night, there are less people out, and everyone is gathered in their homes, or with friends. In that stillness there can grown contemplation, reflection and insight. Isa can be the stillness and silence of deep meditation, where everything exterior seems to fall away, leaving only a centered-ness where one can be an observer, and experience the oneness and detachment at the same time.
A part of me feels like that this is a call, to be silent, and bring stillness to the chattering of my mind, so that I can embrace the quiet strength of Spirit and my soul.
