Following on from my recent article in the Mind, Body, Spirit magazine, Kindred Spirit, I decided to submit a synopsis of Ring Quest and here it is:
JRR Tolkien’s trilogy, The Lord of the Rings, is one of the most widely read books of all time. So, we posed the question, what if it were a true story?
It all began at a talk in the Wye Valley in 1998. A group of friends had been attending talks on self-development that were different from the norm, given by a shy, young man. He talked about finding our answers within, not from gurus, and how to reconnect to your body’s truth. One day, out of the blue, he began talking about Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, saying it was a true story and that we were very much in that story today. At the end of every Age the Story is kick-started again at that other dimension where past actions have been pushed out as a New Age gets underway. But supposing that reality overlaps and interacts with our own reality in the way that ghosts intersect with our world but are trapped within their own personal drama? The One Ring is awoken and begins to exert an evil influence in the physical world. The Dark Lord once again seeks domination.
He is able to attempt this because throughout that Age, humankind has repeated the same old mistakes through greed and the desire for power. Those negative energies, in turn, feed the Dark Lord lying in the shadows and enable him to grow in power. We were particularly shocked to learn that the One Ring had not, after all, been destroyed in the volcanic fire of Mount Doom, as was believed, and that, furthermore, it had awoken and could influence matters in our world for the worse. The pattern goes – there is a great war – the Earth’s vibrations fall – a new round begins, yet again – just as in the original story that happened 60,000 years ago. We know the energies fall because Gandalf tells Aragorn that the Elves will fade and that much will be lost. It has ever been thus: a new round beginning at a lower vibration. But this time, the energies can fall no lower. The only way is back the way we came: we need to return to the higher level of consciousness. To say we were dumbfounded would be an underestimation.
Strangely, there were signs in the world that gave credence to the idea. Ring roads were proliferating and went hand in hand with road rage, a new phenomenon. In the year 2000, any high street across the land carried large posters for the new Star Wars film, The Phantom Menace, which bore a striking resemblance to the main features in The Lord of the Rings. The Jedi Qin-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson), attired in drab clothes and grim faced, wields a shining sword. In the background is the face of the evil Darth Maul showing just one large yellow and red eye, hate-filled. Here were images of the Eye of Sauron and of that great traveller and king in waiting, Strider/Aragorn.
Our very own wizard suggested that we could begin by cleansing the One Ring of its evil vibrations. As we were in physical bodies, we could call the One Ring to us from that other dimension and then cleanse it of its evil vibrations in each of the four elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Air. These we would find at power points within four astrological signs, each representing one of the elements. A fellowship came into being to counter the Nine Black Riders: the Forces of the Opposites were now engaged and the quest could begin in earnest.
We were led to discover the outlines of the astrological signs: the Lion, the Crab, a Bull’s head and The Gemini Twins in London. From there, we located the places of power where the One Ring might be cleansed. Whenever events in the world began to deteriorate we would cleanse the Ring at one of these centres that corresponded to the nature of the event. In addition, we were also taking the other Rings of Power out of circulation as they, too, were having a negative effect in the world.
Another strand entered the remit. We needed to bring back the energy of the 4th dimension and anchor it to the physical planet.
But our Wizard had something else in mind which would change the story beyond our wildest expectations. What if we could do away with the Great War altogether? He asked us whereabouts in the narrative did the two gates open that let in the energy of Duality with the consequent fall in planetary vibration? It was the same energy he pointed out, but welded by a different hand – the one good the other evil. If we could fathom this conundrum we might prevent the recycling of the sagas.
