Thread: Did J.R.R.Tolkien meditate?
Thank y'all very much.
Amazing what ideas can just pop into your head when you sit still and listen.
Yes, the Akashic Records are free to consult for everyone. Very lucky indeed that good old Siddhartha Gautama never put a copyright on it.
I imagine he just sat at his desk smoking his pipe and staring at a spot on the wall, and considered the evolution of a word and its meanings.
I am a Messianic Jew, a Catholic and yes in fact we do meditate. With or without the prayer beads we meditate on God, on the beauty and mystery of creation, on relationships and how to build them, heal them, and I talk to the dear trees as well.
But that could be on his part and I am only speculating from the thought that since there is so much we do not know about the heavenly realm, it could be that he thought that since cherubs and angels have been given posts as caretakers of parts of the created universe and such , perhaps he reasoned there were spirits God appointed to care for the trees as well and were allowed to 'clothe' themselves with the outward appearance of one. After all the Bible does tell of several instances when powerful heavenly beings called angels 'lowered' themselves and took on flesh, or clothed themselves with a type of flesh and walked about as men on the earth.
I don't know. But that is what he may have thought. Anything is possible. When you look at our world with an unjaundiced and unprejudiced eye it looks very wierd; creatures walking about on two legs , elephants, platypuses, sea creatures, trees, horses, dogs and cats, and all else. It is pretty strange when you come to think of it. So ......why not?
That, and when he "said his beads," which is a form of meditation he would have been intimately familiar with.
