Illumination allows you to see in the dark. Enlightenment is a spiritual illumination. It is coming into a new understanding, like opening your eyes for the first time or like turning on a light. You are not seeing anything new, you are just seeing it for the first time. Enlightenment is a beginning, not an end.This new under-standing needs to be utilized and tempered with wisdom before its true worth and power can be known: With knowledge comes responsibility: it is vital that you use your knowledge and power only for what is good and right.
Interpretation of Rune
“Enlightenment needs to be tempered with wisdom before its true worth and power can be known.” You are coming into a new understanding of life and its meaning. New insights await you but this is not a time for complacency. You must use this new understanding or it will be worthless to you. Always look for ways in which you can use your insights for the good of yourself and others. Enlightenment.is like a jug of fine wine: it must be poured out before it can be refilled.
Do not be fooled into thinking that enlightenment is your goal in life. It is only the starting point of an adventure of learning that will show you great wisdom and understanding.
