Blood and Honey…

*

Fjalar and Galar poured honey

into the jars and the cauldron

filled with Kvasir’s blood.

*

They stirred the blood and honey

until it formed an intoxicating mead.

*

Whoever drank it became

a poet or a wise-man.

*

The dwarfs horded the mead.

*

No one else got to taste it.

*

No one even heard of it.

*

After a time the Aesir

sent messengers to ask after Kvasir.

*

The two dwarfs sent back word

that although incomparable

throughout the Nine Worlds,

Kvasir had choked to death on his own learning…

NUANCES OF NICOLL

The Keys to Heaven

Stuart France

Available via Amazon

Psychologist, Maurice Nicoll studied under Fourth Way exponents G.I Gurdjieff and  P.D. Ouspensky, and presented his own philosophy in a series of works published during the Mid Twentieth Century.

In his seminal work, Living Time… he makes no bones about insisting that the psychological states and concepts that he is expounding, and their utilisation, are ancient and stretch back through Christianity, Judaism, the Greek Philosophers, and on into the mysterious climes of Pre-Dynastic Egypt…

In re-presenting these ideas as a series of poetic explorations, author and essayist, Stuart France uncovers a series of links with the Mediaeval Traditions of the Northmen, and the Matter of Britain!

What is the original story of our week? How does the moon harrow hell? Prepare to be enthralled, entertained, educated, and enlightened, as new light is shed on the enigmatic figures of Wotan, Merlin, and King Arthur.

They do not write books like this anymore if indeed they ever did!
