Spiritual development requires enormous amounts of energy, thus those who aspire towards the blossoming of the soul need methods of acquiring and utilizing energy. Hidden in the runes we can find such methods. Then, through The Aeneid, we learn how to use that energy.
The Nordic runes are very ancient letters known to contain great spiritual mysteries, but their true nature has remained untapped by modern seekers of knowledge. Each rune represents a circuit of energy in Nature. By understanding how the runes are present everywhere in Nature, one learns how to utilize them in daily life to empower the awakening of the consciousness. One such method is to use the physical body to emulate a rune in combination with prayer and sacred words. By mirroring the runic circuits of Nature, we become capable of receiving and transforming great amounts of energy.
Yet, energy alone is not enough: one also needs to know what to do with it. For that, Samael Aun Weor unveiled the beautiful symbolism of The Aeneid, one of treasures of classical literature, in which we discover many secrets of the spiritual path. Written by the Roman poet Virgil between 29 and 19 BC, The Aeneid is considered the greatest Latin masterpiece. For more than two thousand years it has remained one of the most studied, memorized, and analyzed writings, yet its true meaning has remained hidden. On the surface, it tells the story of Aeneas and his struggle to establish Rome, yet in truth the story is like all myths: it is an archetypal, symbolic representation of the spiritual path. Like all the great heroes — Odysseus, Herakles, Arjuna, Samson — Aeneas represents the soul who seeks to restore its divine inheritance, and to do so it must overcome the consequences of its former mistaken actions. That is a work of practical action in daily life through which the soul is raised out of suffering. This book is a guide to accomplish it.
The Magic of The Runes is a fascinating book just as all of Samael's books are. I know it's factual truth and the only way of finding out is by personal spiritual experience. You cannot just read these books and make a decision without practical experience.
Great book !
The word magic means "to have power," and there is nothing fantastical about it. That power belongs to our own particular individual God, our Aleph, the first card of the Tarot, so this book is a great place to start.
For people that struggle to find their purpose in life, it is often because they are looking at what their terrestrial personality can (not) do with the mundane limited resources that we have with the modern life that we know. When we let our inner Divinity do our spiritual work, by awakening our consciousness and harnessing energy via the practices provided in this book, we then have the strength to overcome suffering, in whatever form it takes.
This book is explicated from a variety of perspectives to help the reader get an eclectic understanding of how to become an authentic Magician. The Magic of the Runes offers simple explanatory chapters and practices for each "Rune," which are universal circuits in cosmic nature that can be utilized by anyone to awaken their consciousness and develop power over the causes of suffering. But this book also provides extremely esoteric scientific data to support and empower said practices. The evidence explicated in this book is immediately confirmable upon reading the book consciously; simply reading the book can "magical." Moreover, for those of us that easily tire of esoteric scientific jargon, such as the quantum physics of puncta or how to create infinite parallel universes with the Runes, Samael Aun Weor also artistically unveils to the Aquarian audience the path to God as classically explained in Virgil's "The Aeneid" through his initiation of the 5th Gospel that has never been publicly available. We need to awaken fast, and Runes expedite the process!
It is a magnificent book , it helps awaken the consciousness and all give truths to it. In these books written by our savior samael aun weor are like no other. I practice mantras daily for about 10 years now and I'm just amazed for the knowledge one can aquire through these books if put to practice.
I enjoy having this book for a deeper understanding of the practices.
