Skaði Baldur Njörður

Skaði þurs-maiden seeks Baldur sun-god. Skaði is our will to seek the highest

Please note on the picture how we (man) are torn between our spiritual aspirations on one hand, and on the other hand living in a body we make for the sole purpose of living. We have to live a meaningful life. We should seek our inner sun-god, his purity, his enlightenment. Our only means to evolve spiritually, is to live a life in a body. Bound to do that, but not become bound to our body solely.
Skaði and Njörður agree on a compromise: 9 days by the irritating laughter of sea-gulls, 9 days climbing high in the cold snow and steep mountains.
(Note: some claim Skaði to be Skanda, and some claim Skaða (/Skaði´s) name to be found in the name Skandinavia; Icelandic grammar: nominative Skaði, gen. Skaða.)
Note (2): The word skaði (not capitalized) is not the same as Skaði (capitalized) Þjazadóttir.
