Kenaz is also the rune of technological knowledge and should be used for creative endeavors. It’s the force that shapes and creates. Because it is the torch-rune, it is also the Loki rune, and its qualities should only be used for positive purposes and never for negative reasons.
Kenaz is about choosing the “righteous” path; the best path in the long term. The path that honors the Nine virtues. It is about committing ourselves to something larger than self-interest; Charitable works, campaigning for justice, or following a spiritual path.
