The Rune NOD
by Karl Hans Welz
THE RUNE N O D
one is mine, quite useful to hear
The symbolism of the stanza of NOD points out that NOD is the Rune of karma, of karmic need and of karmic debt. With NOD you will be capable of recognizing karma by viewing it from the creative realms. It is evident that such a perspective leads to the skill to overcome karma.
The power of NOD is a very profound one. It takes a high stage of your personal evolution to have to power of overcoming karma and of setting actually determining your karma.
In the mythology of the North NOD is one of the Runes of the Norns. The Norns are goddesses who are spinning the threads of destiny, or karma. Therefore to be capable of working with NOD means to be capable of evoking the Norns. To be capable of such an operation, the Rune Master needs to have gained a thorough understanding of what karma means. Otherwise such an evocation will invariably cause problems. The Rune Master will gain this understanding by acquiring an appropriate mapping, or insight, of TIME in which DESTINY is EMBEDDED.
NOD allows you to gain an understanding of destiny and of time. Therefore NOD helps you to gain access to the realms of the Norns. To try to gain access to the realms of the Norns before you have gained the necessary understanding of NOD may bring some serious problems. In most cases, though, the Norns will smilingly forgive the person who tries to approach them unprepared. However, if such approach is attempted with negative, or unethical, attitude, then whatever the operator projects will inevitable backlash against him or her in karmic determinism and structuring.
At your present state of evolution, NOD allows you to recognize the reasons for your present karma. Consequently you will be able to work with it and eventually overcome it. NOD will give you memories of events that shaped your karma, present and past lives. It will give you insights in events that were significant for the shaping of your present karma. NOD also can help you overcome bad karma and change your destiny for the better. At this stage, NOD is likely to help you accept your present karma and to make the best of it. Read and murmur the Song of NOD to understand. In addition, set up meditation practices with NOD in a ceremonial setting.
It is appropriate for this lesson to practice the following rituals that will change your destiny toward the better. You may use these rituals to help others.
