Do not take myths and poems literally. Belief in the letter can lead to stagnation. (literalism no good).
Vingameiður (vinga-meiður) is not any physical mundane real tree at all.
When we transcend, we are pending on meiður in nothingness of no thoughts.
Do not try to think when transcending, as that thought will only get us back to thinking.
Our mind automatically, by its very own nature, seeks contact with the pure bliss it finds inside – within.
We only have to learn the delicate effortless technique to give the mind a chance to find what it is, really is, and is always looking for.
Our heritage is priceless, and necessary for our life.
