I am inclined to share the opinion that has been offered. For one thing, without meditation, clearing yourself and bringing energies that you intend to focus into the runes, inscribing means nothing. Our energies have to connect with the purpose of the runes, we have to know each rune as deeply as we can to do this.
(lol, I should actually practice a little bit more of what I preach, because while I meditate, I could probably use more time focusing on each runes ideology and inner meaning, not just putting my chi into them)
So thanks for giving me a place to concur and learn all at once.
