I suddenly realized that my spiritual journey and maybe others will recognize themselves in this journey as well, is like Frodo’s Journey. I often wonder what I agreed to in my contract prior to my arrival on Mother Earth. It seems that I raised the bar very high for myself. But when I think back to my past, I am so proud that I overcame a lot of obstacles. As I was saying, yesterday I was saw that there was two movies of LOTR playing on the TV. So when I look at Frodo’s journey, him taking a very magical but difficult journey, constantly been comprised by the dark side, the ring (the dark side).
It was so great that SAM (our spiritual guides and friends) was there to help him, like when they are in Osgiliath:
Frodo: I can’t do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo… and it’s worth fighting for.
I feel in this spiritual journey, I journey to my own spiritual Mount Doom or should I say Mount Enlightenment.
In the last scene Frodo wants to keep the ring, even though he went through such a hard and terrible journey and only to loose it at the very end, the one step to freedom. But again he is helped again from an unlikely creature Gollem (our dark side?) to cast it into Mount Doom.
Sometimes I often feel that I am so close, and then something terrible happens and I want to quit. Then again I am picked up by my friends and my spiritual guides to keep on going until I get over that 5D threshold.
I know I am almost there, just need to stretch my arm, my foot and believe…and step over that 5D threshold. I know you all can do this too.
Frodo: [after destroying the Ring] I can see the Shire. The Brandywine River. Bag End. The Lights in the Party Tree.
Sam: Rosie Cotton dancing. She had ribbons in her hair. If ever I were to marry someone, it would have been her. It would have been her.
[sits down and begins to cry]
Frodo: [leans over and hugs him] I’m glad to be with you, Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things.
