Sweyn has done something really beautiful with this book.
Whenever I open its covers I feel stripped of all assumptions, beliefs, shoulds, arbitrary laws, dogma and faith.
I feel Sweyn has cleared a path back to what it is all about anyway – RUNA, the not knowing, the mystery, the not seeking comfort in false answers.
for me this book is brutally skeptical AND YET this thrusts me into a new freedom.
I really like the translations of the rune poems and I find myself reading them every morning before heading out to work or whatever for the day. They inspire me to reconnect with Runa in new ways.
A new creativity is invited – I’m reminded of Nietzsche’s reflection on the death of god – sailing out into infinite seas from the land – only realise there never was any land…
I think we can all be very grateful for Sweyn’s decision to release this second edition of his book. It is a masterpiece.
