Alexei Kondratiev relates this line to the calander dates of November 26-December 23.
Amergin claims the open water, the silent and powerful waves of the sea. “He claims the
House of Tethra and the unknown deep world. That which is beyond the nine waves ( thar naoi dtonn) but it is also the source of fertility, and if one journeys there one can find the vivifying power behind death’s mask.”
Darkness and water have always been frightening to the poor sighted, air breathing human. But it is here where we are constantly pushed to discover our true strength and measure. The Celts seem to closely hug the otherworld and the constant death/rebirth of the soul.
The dark half of the year (fall/winter) calls us to embrace the dark and board the boat that will take us beyond to the open sea. Even though waters and experiances in life are often uncharted the celts never shyed from the depths of our giamos selves.
When we are alone and able to adjust our “eyes” to the dark we confront our struggles and come to peace. In the ocean deep we can prepare for the new beginnings to come.
Amergin claimed the waves and open ocean and endless depths, he is/was the open sea and claimed his potential of the void without regrets in saying ” I am the wave of the ocean”. Endless and connected and ever-changing.
