The Rune UR
UR is the Rune of original cause, or root-causes, of cosmic and planetary events. It is the Rune of original time at the threshold of creation, original eternity and roots of eternity: Time-les time where space-time loses its relevancy. UR connects with cause of causes, with original creation, with original immortality, and with original law of vibration.
UR is the threshold of creation that FA energizes with its impulse. It is creation for which created deities (or, even more ridiculous, anthropomorphic collective egregors of religions - assumed gaseous mammals above the clouds) take undeserved credit. It is original knowledge.
Mythologically speaking the roots of the world tree, Yggdrasil, reach into the Rune UR. It is here where the tree Norns, goddesses of fate and destiny, are spinning the threads of the web of time that determines the fates of humans and of gods. Here the fountain of wisdom is running to which depths the gods (think here also of the gods within!) "descend" to gain knowledge and wisdom.
Uses: From UR is coming forth continuously new existence. On the etheric levels it represents the healing Orgone energy, life force, and its structural linkages and magical uses. UR opens clair-audience. Work with UR increases your capability to recognize the true origin, or root, of the universe and the true causes of everything. Practice of UR strengthens your healing energies.

THORN is the Rune of activity and of the active mind. In this capacity, the Rune THORN is symbolized as the Rune of the master of the swords. It is a Rune of active exchange and one of the Runes that represent Thor's Hammer.
THORN is a Rune of polarities. While FA is the spark of creation and original structure, UR connects with the chaos at the threshold of creation, THORN symbolizes the emerging of opposite polarities from the zero point energy of chaos as it gains its first structure. From the realm of opposite polarities THORN reaches much deeper into multiple polarities of an infinite order.
As Rune of opposing polarities THORN represents life and death, hot and cold, light and darkness, etc. It is a Rune of opposites that actually are polarities of one and the same process. Therefore THORN is also a rune of eternal return and as such contains in itself the mystery of the thorn that awakens from sleep. The THORN that touches the zero energy of chaos brings forth continuous creation.
THORN is the Rune of the dowsing rod, of lightning and thunder, of magnetic transfer and of mental telepathy.
THORN awakens in us the will to act and to creatively act upon our universe. It helps us get in touch with the continuous change of day and night, waning and waxing, life and death. THORN protects us against attacks, especially magical attacks. The mantra of THORN strengthens the aura.

The Rune N O D
NOD is the Rune of karma. In the Northern tradition, NOD is the Rune of the Norn, goddess of destiny. It is the Rune of karmic debts (the Norn SKULD), of karmic law, of karmic need. NOD signifies Divine justice that balances. "Hate" in the song refers to unresolved karma. Nod helps to master your karma after you have accepted it and recognized it as a structuring process rather than the primitive assumption of cause-effect. NOD symbolizes the appearance out of the infinite, out of the undefined. It connects with the Divine that manifests itself within the finite universe, for "a god who does no manifest itself is dead" (Feuerbach).
Uses: NOD makes you aware of your karmic debts and it helps dissolve karma. It leads to truth and fitting into the cosmic order, or the Divine Plan. NOD brings the protection of high spiritual entities of our Solar System. Use your karma and live it consciously. The emphasis here is on "use". With NOD you can recognize that karma is a structuring process rather than strict cause-effect and that the postulate ("law") of cause-effect is nothing but a human fallacy! Especially with the practice of NOD will you gain the insight of just how powerful work with the creative levels (Runes) can be, especially when it comes to the shifting of dimensions of time!
