About Dwarves, Elves and Giants in the Well of Remembrance by Ralph Metzner

“Men forgot that all deities reside within the human breast”
William Blake

About Dwarves, Elves and Giants in the Well of Remembrance by Ralph Metzner. In his book Ralph writes: Mythology is very much alive in our psyche. We only have to look at our dreams to realize that. Mythology can connect us with an expansion of our -rather limited- rational reality. The capacities for visioning, divination, healing and problem solving that we have allowed to atrophy for many generations can be developed again says Ralph Metzner in “The Well of Remembrance”.

Ralph Metzner, The Well of Remembrance

 

“Dwarves are the subterranean spirits of stone and metal, the masters of matter and fire, who can fashion tools, weapons, and ornaments of inconceivable power and magic.”

When I visited Egypt, I touched the sacred stone scarab in the temple of Luxor and I felt the stone responding. Very respectful I gently touched the stone and asked it what it had experienced all those centuries, and it was like the stone was showing me. That is how I connected with the energy of the dwarves.

Ralph Metner goes on to say: “The spirit of technological invention that animates many of our scientists and technicians is the same amoral and asocial intelligence that characterized the ancient “dwarves”. This is why we have the technologies of nuclear annihilation, of ecological destruction, of genocidal experimentation”.

Giants are the vast planetary forces and energies that they have always been: the ocean, winds, hurricanes, mountain ranges, volcanoes, great forests, steppes and deserts. Functioning by their own laws, they are not under the control of humans. But in addition to these natural giants there are corporate giants run by human beings as stockholders, not humane individuals.

Once, in a dream I was at a funeral. The wind blew and I was shivering, unable to protect myself. The Giants were coming, in my dream and in my life. My family was confronted with numerous of unexpected bills from big cooperations. The Giants were coming, in my dream and in my life. My family was confronted with numerous of unexpected bills from big cooperations.

Ralph Metzner: “Elves are the creators and inspirers of beauty in form, They live in plants and trees, lakes, rivers, waterfalls and other places of great natural beauty. They are guiding spirits of musicians, poets, builders, sculptors, dancers, film makers: those whose works of beauty elevate our sentiments”.

I love music. When I was a young girl and I heard a record I really liked, i was not able to concentrate on what was said. i was dancing, literally or in my mind. There is some music that touches something very deep inside.

“Free at last that what you like they could not take your pride” (U2: Pride in the name of love). I can still shout it while jumping round to the music.

When were you touched by Elves?
