Early this year I began to have "difficulties". At a point when these difficulties started taking on a grave nature, I happened to glance over at some do-dads. I realized their arrangement made them look like a rune. I suddenly recognized it as a rune, although I didn't know it's name or meaning. I looked it up and sure enough it was a rune and it's meaning was dead on to what was happening. I have been seriously studying runes since. I'm just learning the runes' names and meanings, castings, and creating runes for specific intentions. I'm basically a beginner. I don't want to come off as "crazy", but the runes seem "alive" to me.

Keep it up. The runes are as alive as your own mind, and you can use them in many ways, including introspection. There is an author (I forget her name though) who definitely treated them as literally alive. For me they are keys to exploring life's mysteries.

Welcome to the site, hope to hear much more from you!

The runes are alive in the same way as language in that it is always evolving. What I mean by that is that  we all see the world though the window of our own perception  and each individual has a unique  history and thus a unique prospective into which the runes embed themselves "?" or are embedded "?"  into that personal perception. 

I am of the opinion (Now) that the right brain sees/intuits and explanation of the intangible  in the runes that the left brain can not articulate and it is out of this almost visceral lust to articulate the divine, that that the runes capture and draw us into her/it/s web. For the fruit she offers is the power of the godhead.  I do not say this in a religious way for it has been my experience that the runes do not teach mysticism, but rather they teach naturalism.

If by naturalism you mean deeply connected to life, I agree. These are symbols into the unconscious life force of the universe, expressed through humans -- though humans are an expression of the universe --- and perhaps the universe an expression of the divine. 

I think a case can be made to simplify that a great deal. Pragmatism and seeing what lay in front of you, though it may be invisible -- a day to day Way or Path. This is very much in line with the runes. They live along side you and are used by you. They grow as you grow.

What I mean by naturalism is that nature is intelligent a pine cone has within it all the intelligence required to produce a pine tree.  At the same time man and all of his achievements can not reproduce a pine tree in all its excellence. it has everything from instructions on architecture, structural engineering, hydration, solar voltaics  and the list goes on. If we could learn the secrets of a single pine cone our entire world would be revolutionised.  I find the runes to be on this level. Last week I went up big creek in my boat and spent a few days just cruising up the many tributaries feeding into Big Creek. Fehu and Gebo gifted me my boat as I could not afford to buy one. While on my little trip I observed the beaver this  animal is nature's engineer. He is a master of Lugaz. He uses all kinds of wood but willow is one of his favorites and as a result willow proliferates along the tributaries. Willow is one of the most valuable plants around as it has untold utility and well as being a medicinal pain killer. Again I see the work of the beaver as an act of  ehwaz As he and his environment come together in perfect harmony and out of this relationship is an abundance of Gebo. I see the runes in almost every aspect of the world.
