11 Rígur (on Edda-poem Rígsþula)

-Is Rígur all about classes of men?
-Perhaps not exactly in the way we might assume, about money and education.
Rígur can be telling us about states of evolution of men. Some are more evolved spiritually than others. We have a path and a goal. We should know.

But we take our next step from where we are now.

Pitch for Rígur / Rig  1 min 36 sec:


The text for 1 minute pitch Rígur / Rig (above):

11  Rígur
Understanding Rígur is of importance.  Not all men are born equally wise, urðut allir menn jafnspakir. Every man is born to his karma, and to his dharma. Dharma is that which upholds. Living one’s own dharma is wise, living other men´s life brings bad luck. Sjálfur leið þú sjálfan þig, thou self lead thyself.
There are stages, of evolution among men. The wisest thing to do is to take our next step from the very spot on which we happen to be. Isn’t this somehow rational, when you think about it? The steps are towards enlightenment, the goal and purpose of human life-spans. Do we know?
What do we do in order to evolve to the supreme in the fastest way – from where we are now?  How do we take that next step? Simply learn to transcend the world of thoughts, nýsa niður. That is the easiest thing on earth. The most natural for mind as here mind finds what it is seeking: permanent bliss. Nýsa niður is the fast-train and short-cut to purity and enlightenment – for all and every man, wherever he is now.

More to ponder on:

* are men on different states of evolution?
* what is evolving in this (spiritual) context?
* what is the difference between 1) Darwin’s theory, and 2) this evolution theory about which we are talking here: i.e. hightening our consciousness to reach enlightenment?
* does Rígsþula address our present, appropriate, allotted spot on our evolutionary path?
* do we understand swa-dharma (living appropriately our own life)?
*  thou lead thy self in Icelandic sjálfur leið þú sjálfan þig
* dharma is that which upholds, upholds nature and attributes of everything
* — everything has its own dharma, everyone has his dharma —
* dharma is in everything holding all as it should be according to its nature
* dharma of being a human being keeps us as human beings
* dharma upholds each ones purpose in his life-span
* even the dharma of running keeps the runner running
* men are born to their allotted dharma, as they choose their family before conception according to their karma, but for us finding out our dharma here and now can be difficult,
* but, jyotish, calculation, can sort this out for us
* why does the enlightened men’s description of enlightenment not suffice for us to become enlightened?
* can the delicate technique to transcend, nýsa niður, get lost in some dark times?
* can dark ages be the very reason for it to gets lost?  even if those times are in the most need for it?
* effect of dark age, or reason for dark, or both? – vicious cycle?
* is enough for us to know about higher states of consciousness?
* is understanding intellectually, and talking about it, enough?
* what are the human attributes not possessed by animals?
* what does it mean to be only able to act according to one’s nature?
* what is the purpose and goal of man’s life-spans be he born as a þræll, karl, or jarl?
* these terms indicate a state of spiritual evolution, and our very place here and now, correct and right for each one, as each one has chosen that according to his own Skuld
* who made our Skuld?
* who is responsible for our örlög?
* did I choose exactly what is right for me?
* shall all men, greater and less great sons of Heimdallur, learn to nýsa niður?
* (note: Heim-dallur pronounce haim-dadd-leur, accent on 1st syllable always in Icelandic)
* does the quality of thoughts correlate to the state of consciousness of the one who thinks them?
* the poet Bólu-Hjálmar criticised authorities sharply in his poems
— why did authorities get so irritated?
* was there no freedom of speech if remarks happened to be telling sad truth about the ruling authorities?
* do powerful men sometimes have to defend their power against unwanted but true remarks?
* what then is the difference between worldly power and divine inner power?
* please google The Maharishi Effect – and: thinking from pure consciousness

Til umhugsunar:

* eru menn á ýmsum stigum þróunar?
* hvað er þróun í þessu samhengi?
* berið saman 1) þróunarkenningu Darvins og 2) þróun einstaklings til fullkomnunar (andlega þróun manns)
* hvað segir Rígsþula okkur um okkar stað á þróunarbrautu okkar?
* skiljum við muninn á 1) sva-dharma (okkar eigin lífi, sem við ættum að lifa) og 2) para-dharma (annarra manna lífi, sem er hættulegt að lifa)?
* sjálfur leið þú sjálfan þig
* dharma er það sem uppiheldur náttúru og eiginleikum hvers og eins – og allt hefur sitt eigið dharma – og allir hafa sitt eigið dharma
* dharma er í öllu, heldur öllu eins og það á að vera samkvæmt sinni náttúru,
* dharma manna heldur þeim sem mönnum,
* uppiheldur tilgangi hvers og eins á sinni mannsævi,
* jafnvel dharma þess að hlaupa heldur þeim sem hleypur hlaupandi!
* fyrir okkur getur verið snúið að finna út hvað við erum að gera hér, hvert við stefnum
* spurningin gæti verið: hvert er mitt dharma á þessari ævi?
* hvers vegna dugar lýsing uppljómaðra á uppljómun okkur ekki?
* getur fíngerð tækni til að nýsa niður glatast og brenglast í meðförum í aldanna rás, einkum á myrkum öldum?
* er nóg að vita af æðri vitundarstigum?
* hvaða hæfileika hafa menn framyfir dýrin?
* hvað er að geta eingöngu unnið samkvæmt sinni náttúru?
* hvert er markmið mannsævi, án tillits til hvort um er að ræða þræl, karl eða jarl?
–sem tákna í Rígsþulu þróunarstig og réttan stað fyrir næsta skref–
* Skuld (hvers og eins) fær mann til að velja það að fæðast þræll eða karl eða jarl
* hver og einn bjó þessa (sína eigin) Skuld til
* valdi ég mér ákkúrat rétta staðinn og tímann til að halda áfram?
* hentar öllum mönnum að nýsa niður?   meiri sem minni mögum Heimdallar?
* er samræmi milli gæða hugsana annars vegar, og hins vegar þróunarstigs þess sem hugsar þær?
* kannist þið við skáldið Bólu-Hjálmar?
* komu níðvísur hans við kaunin í valdhöfunum?
* var ekki málfrelsi?
* þurfa valdhafar oft að verja vald sitt gegn sannleikans athugasemdum?
