The Wyrd Crooked Path of Fate.

The Norns by H.L.M

Quote: “weird Look up weird at Dictionary.comOld English wyrd (n.) “fate, destiny,” literally “that which comes,” from Proto-Germanic wurthis (cf. Old Saxon wurd, Old High German wurt “fate,” Old Norse urðr “fate, one of the three Norns”), from PIE wert- “to turn, wind,” (cf. German werden, Old English weorðan “to become”), from root *wer- (3) “to turn, bend” (see versus). For sense development from “turning” to “becoming,” cf. phrase turn into “become.” Mímer_and_Balder_Consulting_the_Norns_(1821-1822)_by_H._E._Freund
The modern sense of weird developed from Middle English use of weird sisters for the three fates or Norns (in Germanic mythology), the goddesses who controlled human destiny. They were portrayed as odd or frightening in appearance, as in “Macbeth,” which led to the adjectival meaning “odd-looking, uncanny,” first recorded 1815.” Unquote.


It is the three Norns, UrðrVerðandi, and Skuld who sit under the branches of  Yggdrasil, the ‘World Tree’ at the Well of Urðr dispensing what we would understand as Fate, or what the Anglo Saxons called Wyrd.

Interestingly similar to the Greek Moirai

All is, it would seem, connected.

A thread running through All, leading one to the same source, along long forgotten (some times remembered) Truths, until one is inspired to see with eyes wide as an innocent child, stumbling across the Truth for the first time.

Yet how many have trod this path before?

Yet how many times has this Soul trod this Path before?

Many speak of UPG (Unverified Personal Gnosis) and are quick to dismiss it. Yet when another’s matches one’s own, UPG then becomes verified, and when another and another see the same thread of UPG in the same things, then it become, surely, gnosis and is undeniably a Truth.

There is an old saying: “Births of a feather, flock together”.

In my book, there is no such thing as coincidence. It’s fortunate serendipity; synchronistic events that can be only one thing; a sign/omen/message pointing on in the right direction… and it is one’s wyrd, one’s fate to follow where the fingers of the three Norns or the Three fates point. To deny it, means a great deal of problematic events before one steps on the Crooked Path of one’s Wryd/Fate again. It takes a wise traveller to see the signs and act accordingly, knowing that no matter what, All is as it should be, and the crooked path, with it’s many twists and turns is a fated, weird road to travel.
