The deepest test of any being’s character and form comes not from the departing from the imagination of childhood – for that is a realm that a healthy being never departs from, never acting as if that is what adulthood requires – but rather from the entrance into the next reality that the path travelled through imagination fuels. It is the entering into the new, not the exiting from the old, that makes the life difference. It is the holding on to of both that builds the full story.
The Ring of Rings – The One Ring, the ring to rule them all – is the ring that is prior to the ring that can be: if the tests of the soul, of the being, and of the spirit are passed on the journeys through the pathways of imagination. It is so that The One Ring is the gateway to all the potential rings that lie in wait for their potential bearer. The rule of The One Ring stems from its guiding power. The path of imagination that The One Ring leads through avails its bearer to the many rings that could be had.
The disposal of The Ring of Rings – The One Ring – into the fires of Mordor is the acceptance of the ever-increasing scarcity of time as the Ages of Old naturally begin to settle into a lifetime. The disposal is the removal of potential in return for the infinitely increased valuation of quality had from the actual that remains, which follows the disposal.
The One Ring is beared by the unattached Person – the Ascendant – holding within it the navigational tools for finding its circular counterpart. Their meeting in the fires of Mordor destroys each other, creating in return The Two Rings.
There comes a time when each bearer of The One Ring, consciously or unconsciously, is called to face the challenges of protecting the sanctity of the ring, as test of moral sturdiness. The sanctity of The One Ring is protected by its timely destruction. The sacred quest of destruction – the killing of the illusion of infinite potential, of infinite choice, brought by The One Ring – creates the bridge that opens the pathway to the realms of the next reality, where The Two Rings and their greater powers are to be had: powers beginning with the nullification of the concept of one ring to rule them all; powers where all rings are created equal.
In the fires of Mordor (recognized on Higher Earth in mediums of love ranging from the local pub to the fierce and extreme environment of Tinder) The One Ring melts itself into The Other One Ring, creating The Two Rings that form the stability of the foundations of the Family that continues life for future Generations to be had.
The construction of the ring is unparallelled in its defensive capacity. It is an arch capable of upholding bridges all around.
The sacred quest of destruction is ultimately had consciously: whilst the immense natural power of The One Ring might lead an unassuming bearer to the ledge overlooking the fires, it will not throw itself in, for The One Ring is a living object and it does not wish to die, just as no other form of life naturally wishes for death when it exists in a state of health. The One Ring must be put into submission. It must be made to understand why its fate is to be destroyed, for that is how it serves its purpose.
The One Ring deserves to die so that it may be born again, carried by the subsequent Generations of bearers.
The natural recognization of and commitment to the higher power and value of The Two Rings over the continued holding of The One Rings is what leads the bearers to have the strength to depart from the illusory allure of infinite potential, of infinite choice. The tossing into the fire is the mark of a risen Ascendant: the stamp of a being that wishes to obtain the irrevocable strengths of higher powers had for the protection of the continuation of life.
The powers of The Two Rings.
So it is that the story of the Twos born out of the Ones
The story of The Rings of the Rings
Are landed here upon this Middle Earth:
The Internet that lays between the Higher Earths of our Planet.
The thing about war is that it doesn’t end when it ends on the front: that is when it begins to end. The negative feelings of a mass-fight linger for Generations thereafter through the embedded emotions of Parents being passed down to Children. I think that is good to remember: that chilling out really takes quite some time. The chilling out also won’t happen at the same time everywhere: there must be a Chill Leader.
