Runes: The Meaning of Nied

Runes: The Meaning of Nied

Meaning: Need

What we want and what we need in our lives are often completely different. If you want to be strong, you will need to examine your weaknesses.This creates a paradox. It is only when you realize that the weaknesses need to be faced and turned to strengths, that you will begin to understand the difference between wants and needs. To be strong, you must first experience weakness; to find your path, you must first lose it; to be beautiful within, you must first face up to your ugly inner side.

Interpretation of Rune

“To achieve your wants, you often need to experience the very opposite or your wants.” You are getting exactly what you need at this moment to allow you to make the best progress on your spiritual path. It may appear to be the very opposite of what you want, but this state is merely a series of lessons that must be learnt so that you can make the transition from negative to positive.

You need to have total acceptance of the past, to keep your mind fixed on where you want to be, while trusting that everything in the present is meant to be there and is to be learnt from. The past is just a memory, the future just a dream; the present is the only place where you can have influence.
