Light as a feather, heavy as iron.

A force of tension, projection of fate.

Authority from Within

As the path of Odin, Shiva, Socrates, Lucifer, Buddha, and many others will reveal: authority, truth, and wisdom reside in our core, lying within us. Through the emulation and understanding of these most invulnerable and permanent forms, the essence of the Self stirring within every human incarnation, we get a glimpse into a higher, more focused, refined and crystalline sense of reason and awareness. Here is where all answers await, and where all questions of importance in time must be directed, as this is the only conveyer of truth, the eternal Self within all. This is the voice which calls the true seeker; drawing ever closer to its origin; striving to balance the earth and sky.

Tiwaz – Rune of Order

Tiwaz is the rune of the great and ancient Sky God. This force governs victory, justice, and order among mankind. Tiwaz brings purpose and reason to us, offering a balance to the opposing powers of chaos and confusion. Tiwaz is a celestial power that neutralizes and combats the earthy, primitive, and chaotic forces governing the animal kingdom. It grants us our status as a different type of sentient being; one that isn’t driven by mere instinct but can analyze and impose its’ will upon the surrounding environment. Tiwaz is an ancient god of War, typically associated with the Roman god Mars or the ancient Indo-European god of the Day and Heaven, Deywós.

Tiwaz invokes and governs justice among men. When instinct drives us to be chaotic man-apes, we are returned to balance and reason by Tiwaz. Without this crucial force within us, we would be incomplete creatures without the capability to analyze or interpret; one of our most prominent and important features as a species. If you lie, cheat, and steal to get by, Tiwaz will bring you agony and leave you with an internal void, a lack of real accomplishment. In this respect, Tiwaz, like Algiz, can be associated with acts that increase one’s Hamingja, attracting more good fortune into one’s life.

Tiwaz represents leadership, honor, and duty to a specific cause. He is dedicated and focused, unwavering in his faithfulness and zeal. Honor guides him and he absorbs good fortune, radiating the powers of justice and willpower wherever he goes. He is graceful and gallant, as any great warrior must be.

Tiwaz is the spirit of honor and goodness, chivalry and grace. He is the archetype of the Warrior or Knight within the European soul. Bravery, courage, honor, and loyalty to what you believe in are his powers. This emulation is crucial and pivotal in our ascension of body, mind, and spirit. It is important to never turn your back on the realms of Tiwaz. If you do, you will surely lead a life of deception, bad luck, and treachery.
