Time / Wurt / Urlag
(part 4)

By: Hjuka Harugari

.

The 'waters' flow directly from Huergelmer into MÓmesbrunno, continuously pushing upward into the complex weaves of urlag which it holds. The influences / influential energy or magan of the layers are then imparted into the water as it continues to pass through them, and work its way into Urdabrunno {Mo, Urdabrunnen) 'above'. This is the top layer or aspect of the collective Well of Wurt, and in essence, the most *active* and most instrumental of the three in shaping Becoming. From this level or aspect of the Well, the Wurt‚ draw the water and mud with which they feed/nurture the Irminsul, and set to motion the turnings of wurt itself. the water, of course, bears within the energy/ energy forms collected at this point in Urda's Well. these same energies are absorbed the roots of the Irminsul and are then carried throughout the nine worlds (in which their influences will be made manifest). In pouring the water/mud onto the Irminsul's roots, the Wurt‚ are quite literally 'laying laws' , that is, laying layers and ensuring due course of action / re-action. in the manifestation of wurt, we find incessant movement, and a constant catalyst of further action/re-action and influences.


"the term itself points us to this notion of action, or, action and re-action-  drawn from the verb, werdan (to become), it ultimately traces to the Proto Indo-European root, wert (variously, uert): to move, to set into motion, to turn. also, to spin or rotate." (fr, GHAPG)


Wurt is a cyclic and evolutionary process, similar in concept to the turning of the year- with each passing cycle, we return to the same points within the calendar. not within a static context (of a non-progressive or evolutionary return to the *exact* point in time from which we moved) but to that point in an elevated or evolved state of being. this is often compared to or given analogy to climbing a spiral staircase- as we climb, it brings us to the same points on the revolution, but spatially elevated, evolved or advanced. Wurt, in its complete form, is a motion of cycle, of cyclic nature and growth, of turn and re-turn. So, we can grow out of one condition of the Past, but we never truly leave it in whole form and Being- it always remains a part of us, and so with us on some level


"This is also part and parcel to the eldritch notion of worthing one's self into a higher level or position with one's community or society -an individual conducts him/herself in a fashion that lends appropriate layers, places suitable patterns within the Well that shapes his urlag- in this, he sets the trend for further patterns, and so growth: a refinement of the self, rather than say, a complete 'gutting-out' and rebuilding out of nothingness. This is the positive accrual of luck or true worth for which we all strive, that evolution of Being which allows us to lay right and proper foundations, to set a 'goodly' weave of furtherance and luck for our children and lines, and so our folk." (fr, GHAPG)
