Khalk

Khalk is the letter K

There is no rune poem. Khalk is a Northumbrian Rune.

The appearance of Khalk gives me the impression that the fires of Cweorth are starting to burn out. As Khalk is the cup, containing within it various liquids, whether it be the waters of life, the mead of inspiration, or maybe even the milk of human kindness, it’s still a liquid, a contrast to the fiery powers at work this week.

The cooling powers of Khalk, a refreshing and rejuvenating tonic, that cools the fires within, quenching them, and giving rest and peace, at least for a moment. One can’t burn all the time.

Khalk, the cup, signifies that today is dreams, hopes, desires. It often serves to indicate how close we have come to achieving them, but also how far we have yet to go. It refreshes, but once drunk to the dregs, leaves one thirsting for more, seeking to be fulfilled again, or at least to have a new desire that can motivate and captivate you, as one dream becomes a reality, a new dream surfaces to take it’s place. Now that you have won, what will you do know?

Khalk is one of those runes whose exact name is unclear. Many translations given are cup or chalice. In my personal meditations on Khalk, that is the essence that sticks out the clearest. As I have often wrote about before, it is the Cup of desires, hopes and dreams, the goal that motivates, even though it is often unattainable. I am reminded of a saying that I read somewhere “If mans reach was not meant to exceed his grasp, what is a heaven for?” The highest ideal is meant to be unreachable, at least as long as we dwell in this mortal coil, as the journey, struggle, and endeavor to reach that place keeps us going, despite the hardship, and the path of thorns that awaits us. But mixed in with those thorns, are roses.

Khalk is the cup, chalice or grail. The drinking utensil that holds liquids, but it is also the Loving Cup, the chalice of dreams and desires, and the Holy Grail whose draught can ease pain, bring healing, and gaining it fulfils desires and is the attainment of the quest. Khalk is the rune that gives us that taste of fulfillment that we seek, but at the same time it also goads us onward, showing us how much farther we need to go, until we gain that which is desired.

Khalk, typically translated to mean cup or chalice, is one of the northumbrian runes. Most early esoteric rune lore interepreted Khalk as being the a refernce to the Holy Grail.

To me Khalk is a cup, the Cup of Victory and Attainment, but also the Cup of Dreams and Desires. In a reading it shows either reaching your goals, or realizing what those goals might be, and how much farther your need to go to reach them. As I was engaging in some dreaming work today, I also had the insight that Khalk might also beneficial to dreams, useful in engaging in dream work, but also in as an indicator that you should look to your dreams for answers or insight to your question or needs. Not only night dreams, but your day dreams of success of attainment as well.

It’s name can mean several things, but the most commonly agreed to meaning is cup, chalice or grail.

Kalk, as the cup or grail, is the container that holds fluids that can be nourishing, intoxicating or poisonous. It can be the loving cup, a container that we pour or love and desires into, seeking their fulfillment as we then drink deep. It is bottomless, and can quench the thirst of the seeker.

It can be the cup that holds the mead of poetry and inspiration, drinking deep to bring ecstasy and enlightenment, as well as skill with words, song and persuasion.

It could be the sangreal as the Holy Grail, but also as the container of the royal blood, As the Holy Grail, it brings healing and rejuvenation. As the royal blood it raises up the power within, arousing the divine spark in humanity which makes miracles possible.

It can be all those things as the item of a quest, an goal or attainment, that as the focus of desire, helps to show how far along the path one has traveled, and also how far one has to go.
