"Use your destiny, don't fight it." - Guido von List
The Armanen Masters had a truly deep and profound knowledge and understanding of the Ancient Runes, one which anyone studying the runes should not overlook because this is not a 'traditional' runic system. List acquired his knowledge of the 18 runes through a mystical experience when he was temporarily blinded after a cataract operation, thus taking upon himself the Wotan Archetype to rediscover the Ancient Secrets. List, and other Armanen Masters after him, gave to each rune a short and simple catch-phrase. Here I am going to take a brief look at the above since it can be of great help to us today during the world's problems due to the World State Agenda.
"Use your destiny, don't fight it." The Nad-Rune is one of 'need' or 'necessity' and in itself it has the basic meaning of obstacles placed in front of us; in this sense it is a negative rune. But as with all runes it has two sides, and the other side is one of overcoming such obstacles; hence the meaning of 'need' or 'necessity' because it is these obstacles that force us to act in order to overcome them. Without obstacles in life we could not overcome our limitations as humans; this is the meaning of the words of the Aryan Krist - 'To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the Tree of Life'.
We are witness to the way that most people today face any form of change, obstacle, or disaster; in the face of change and obstacles most people cannot do anything to overcome them, they are in a state of fear and terror that numbs their senses into being unable to act. This is clear from the pandemic 'raging' amongst us, which at this point is a virus (Omicron) which is no more than a mild flu in most cases. The 'proles' are unable to see through the lies and deceit, even when scientists and doctors are beginning to tell the truth of this - they prefer to listen to the lies and deceptions of the media, press and politicians (or perhaps better put those pushing from behind the scenes).
I think that here we have a good example of the way two separate and different types of individuals react to problems and obstacles. The 'Ultimate Man' (Nietzsche's 'herd-animal') who is part of the collective masses, gives way to such problems by conforming to a clear tyrannical regime that cannot be seen as anything else but evil (we see this most clearly in such figures as the French President, Macron, and the way that in Australia there are 'concentration camps' ('quarantine camps' is used to hide the truth) where even young people have been confined). On the other hand the 'Overman' (or rather the 'Solitaries' who pave the way for the 'Overman') do not see this as a disaster or catastrophe, but as a means of overcoming our human limitations. Thus, it is the latter who use the advice of Guido von List in not fighting or denying their destiny, but using it as a means of overcoming their own limitations.
The rune-stave is also symbolic of the 'Broken Ego', since it is the Is-Rune with a line breaking it into two parts. This is the Mystery of the Solar-Hero, the best known example being Siegmund who pulled the Sword out of the Sacred Oak, a mystery shown in this rune-stave. When the sword is pulled from the Sacred Oak what is left is the 'Ego' (I) made whole once more. In the famous operas of Richard Wagner, particularly his Ring Cycle we find some of these mysteries, where the sword wielded by Siegfried is named Nothung -'Sword of Need'. However, another rendering of the name Nothung would be the 'Need of Ing' which gives this a whole new level.
In Norse Mythology the World Tree is the Ash-Tree - Iggdrasil; I have shown before that the Old English AEsc-Rune has a rune-poem that suggests that the Anglo-Saxons also saw this as an Ash-Tree, or at least some of them. I say 'some of them' because the most revered tree of the Anglo-Saxons was the Oak-Tree, which was not just seen as the tree of Thunor the Thunderer. It was the tree associated with Robin Hood, and thus with Woden; this is in fact confirmed when we recognise it as being associated with Herne the Hunter who is an aspect of Woden as the Wild-Hunter God. Like the other Germanic Tribes in Germania, the Anglo-Saxons held the Oak Tree to be the most sacred tree, and it is possible that the Iceni of East Anglia derived their name from the Oak Tree.
Whether we use the symbolism of the Sword from the Oak-Tree or the Sword from the Stone makes no difference, for they both have the same basic meanings, including that of the 'Broken Ego' which is healed when the Sword is taken from the Tree or Stone. This symbolism also applies to the 'Broken Sword' which was re-forged by Sigurd-Siegfried in order to slay the Dragon. This too is made whole again. It is the Solar-Hero who wields the Broken Sword in order to slay the Dragon of Darkness and Chaos. The other important symbolism in both of these examples is that only the one who is rightfully 'king', who has the Divine Right to rule, can take the Sword from the Oak or Stone. This also applies to the re-forging of the Broken Sword, for only the 'Rightful Solar-King' is able to wield the powers of the Sword. Indeed, as we found in the figure of Aragorn (Lord of the Rings) it is only when he is given the Sword that he takes up the Divine Destiny allotted to him - which he tried to deny before, mainly because he did not see himself fit for such a task.
In this case it is the Sword itself that represents the destiny of the Solar-Hero; we see this in the Saga of Beowulf where Hengest is given the Sacred Sword of AEtla the Hun - Hunlafing Hildeleoman - which passes the Wyrd of AEtla to Hengest, who thus becomes the 'King of Kings' and 'Lord of 'Lords', taking up his destiny of 'World-Ruler' (werold-raedan). I recall somewhere of a similar example in more modern times when a Sword forged in Solingen was passed to a similar type of 'World-Ruler'. The Spear of Destiny has a similar meaning (strangely enough the Spear is broken into two pieces).
What we need to understand about the examples I have given here is that these conform to an Archetypal Myth and that this is how we can recognise certain famous figures in history as living that Archetypal Myth and we can better understand who they are and their role in life. Hengest is the Geist of Ing ('Spirit of Ing') and it was his role, at that particular time in history, to lead the English Tribes here to the British Isles to create the English Folk-Nation which would arise in later times. It is also important to note that Hengest was one of the Divine Twins and what we know of him comforts to the archetypal pattern of such figures as Romulus, AEtla and Genghis Khan, all of whom slew their brother or half-brother, though this does not appear in the Myth of Hengest.
In this respect the events around August 11th 1999 take on an even greater significance; this was the conception of the Age of Ing. When the Black Sun 'resurrected' the 'King of the Angles' (Ingwe) this tells us that in our time the Spirit of Ingwe has been reborn to once more lead the English Folk in their True Destiny. In the Robin of Sherwood TV series of the 1980s we find that it is the Sword Albion (Seventh Sword of Wayland) which is the key to the Destiny of The Hooded Man (Robin Hood), and is passed from Ailric of Loxley (we have to assume this) to Robin of Loxley, and then to Robert of Huntingdon. This is also true of the Bow and Arrow used by The Hooded Man; we have also the symbolism of Herne's Arrow woven into the tale. (The Bow and Arrow is clearly a much earlier symbolism connected to Woden-Herne as the 'One-Eyed Hunter-God'. This is not clear in regard to the Norse Odin, though this may be seen in the figure of 'Arrow-Od' who seems to be a kind of 'Wild Man of the Woods'.)
So, the massive problems that we face today should not be seen as something to despair about, nor seen in the negative light that the Forces of Darkness try to create. What is happening should be seen as an obstacle that we need to overcome, a problem that has to be solved. In this regard the Nyd-Rune is also about the problem, but it also tells us that the solution to that problem lies within the same rune. Basically, the solution that stands out clearly is that these obstacles must be seen as the means to overcome our human limitations, to fulfil our Divine Destiny, and as a means to fulfil the evolutionary-drive towards the Sixth Root Race - the Sun-Man (Sonnenmensch).
