Super Abridged Cliff Notes Version of Lord of the Rings - Bored of the Rings

I'm not a fan of the Lord of the Rings in any way shape or form, and this always gets the fan boys on my ass because they expect me - being the weird magical hat wearing dude that I am, to automatically love it. I tried, I really did. I read the books in a master edition leather bound hard cover, but I would always fall asleep.  Same with the movies.  Lord of the Rings is BORING to me. Boring, boring, boring. I really wanted to love it, as I love fantasy & magical worlds, but I just don't, and like George Washington I cannot tell I lie and so I must chop down the overgrown cherry tree.  I hope the Hobbit movie is better because I loved the Hobbit as a book & thought it was infinitely superior as far as story structure goes.  The saying , "less is more," really applies in comparing the two.

So to save anyone who can't get through 1200+ pages or 13 hours of movie, I have written a slightly abridged version:

LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY - (Slightly Abridged Script)

Bilbo: Yo what's up cuz, hey, I found this really evil ring... makes me invisible and greedy and I know it's bad but power is so sexy ya know what I mean?

Frodo: Hmmm. I think I'm just gonna stick to smoking. I really am not looking to get into harder drugs or evil rings right now I'm just gonna hit the pipe. (Take a big ass toke, eyes roll back into head)

Gandalf: Yeah, throw that bitch out.

Frodo: Hey Gandalf, just because you have a cool hat you think you can tell me what to do?! Bilbo gimme that ring now I wanna try it.

(Gandalf rolls eyes and face palms)

(Endless hours later of linear bullshit on way to big trashcan to throw out ring. Fighting, in depth talks and little raps about cake, some bad guys in black on the horse from the Denver airport - some trippy trees and nice mountains and stuff, then a slimey drug dealing meth addict looking dude who wants a hit of the ring too)

Frodo: Yeah. Better throw this bitch out.

Where Filmmaker's Dreams Begin - "A Trip to the Moon"

Wow, I entirely fell in love with the film Hugo. I was expecting crap. I guess you have to be a bit of a film buff or a filmmaker to really appreciate it or it could be boring. For me it had a very special personal appeal because the first film I ever saw when I was most likely a toddler was my grandfather's old old original copy of "A Trip to the Moon" or "Le voyage dans la lune" as it was originally titled by actor / writer / director Georges Melies. Just like in the movie, I watched it on very old 8mm film played on my Grandfather's old projector and screen.

I remember being bedazzled thinking, "that is magic.... how do the magic people get to do that? I want to do things like that.. I want to be a magic person," and so the spell began, and still continues.

Love is Universal - but your Path is Personal - Origin & Destiny

I not only believe in love , but I KNOW love. I am not going to go into a big discourse on what the word love means and the many types. Hopefully you already know.

Furthermore, I not only believe I exist, but I KNOW I exist, and that I will persist. Is this a Destiny Origin or Origin Destiny question? Perhaps. if you put Destiny first you say it's all predetermined and so you say you have no say. If you put Origin first, I would think this better - because even though an Origin may lead to Destiny, you can write you're own script and choose your path to your start - your new start. Every moment a miracle. You see your part as both Origin and Destiny as a free loving being in a feedback loop.  This gives value to your choices for they are yours and you need not justify them to anyone else as long as you do no harm to anyone else.

Many here think I am arguing against God. That I am just some occultist. I am not. Our definitions differ. I am not an atheist, nor an agnostic either, nor any any name given to any religion or group. If one must label me, call me a poetic jester.

I AM - yet I am not part of the I AM movement. I AM LOVE. I AM CREATIVITY. I AM THE CHOICES I MAKE. I AM SMALL, I AM BIG, I AM LIMITED, I AM UNLIMITED. I love for the sake of it, and create for the joy of it. I am creativity and I know that I exist and I take great joy in that and wish to share as much laughter and joy as I can, but by inspiration only, never force or coercion. 

I need no rule book or creed anymore to justify my inner experience or that tells others that THEY are wrong if they don't follow my way or some way or THE WAY - because I know the others are part of me and I part of them. I respect. I disrespect those who do not respect but I respect their right to do so as long as they do not infringe on others.

Love is not forced. I should not force myself or my will upon anyone nor should they on me. That causes fear. Love is not feared, or at least it should not be.  Love does not condemn something and scare it and say it's doing it in the name of love! Each entity that experiences being loves in its own unique way on it's own unique path and it comes down to live and let live or slavery and bondage which usually comes from lack of love wanting to fix its hate by control and power. 

Love has no value if forced - for that is the same as hate. Any law that excludes others and declares itself ABOVE all in some hierarchy form is poor human thinking - not love, not caring, not inclusive, but noninclusive, disrupting, disharmonious, and destructive.

Ultimately, paradoxes resolve and there is still contrast to create with, but not a being at war with it's own self.

Follow your heart. Be love, with wisdom and grace. Dream.

Love, Light, Laughter, Kindness, Creativity & Abundance for ALL - ALL-ways,
