Odin’s ability to shape-shift into other creatures,
is commensurate with his higher function.
But the dwarvish propensity for secrecy
appears redundant if the High One
has his ‘ravens’ and would know what
they were up to anyway?
Perhaps the point is precisely that the divine substance
is claimed by each aspect of the psyche
before its most natural abode is ascertained?
Emotions can be regarded as both strong and secretive.
The negative aspect of the Ego can be boastful and mean spirited.
The prospective demise of the two dwarfs is also suggestive.
Are they to be returned to an undifferentiate ‘sea of emotion’?
We may note in all this that
it is the will of the higher function,
alone, which achieves the necessary outcome.
Like calls to like,
if you like, but only because
higher function has its origin in divine essence.
