"What is an addiction after all? Does it necessarily have to be alcohol, drugs or gambling? I think that living a pointless and wasteful life is probably the worst type of addiction often a lot more difficult to quit than any chemicals or artificial…"

"Isa is 'just a straight line'.  Okay. But none of the other ones are. And Isa has particular dimensions and is vertical. While contemplating the runes in terms of what other runes comprise them may be useful to a degree, I think it…"

"Interestingly enough, Hagalaz and Isa are very typical 'self-destruction' runes, Hagalaz being the crisis/catastrophe from past action and Isa being stagnation/stasis and blockage. Less severe is Jera, who demands hard work, patience and…"

Lessons of Hagalaz: Rune of Disaster and Healing

In the face of disaster, compassionate human beings discover that they do not break, but become stronger. We discover that our communities come together, even on a global scale, in face of unimaginable destruction. When the universe shows its inimical side, the side that couldn't care less about average human affairs, it's as if we come together to show overwhelmingly that we care for one another. When the universe demonstrates that it cannot be depended upon, that it is more than able to wreck havoc, we react by showing that we can depend upon one another.
