🔹Rivendell in the LOTR saga is a midway place of rest and safety in a world of chaos. 🔹Sam “never wants to leave it.” Bruner points out in his book astutely Odysseus was the sole returner to Ithaca after his crew was seduced by the lotus land.🔹Galahad the sole resister of distraction in quest of the grail, Joshua and Caleb being the only two of an entire generation to reach the promised land. 🔹A place of peace and comfort lures us to stay there. Peter wanted to “build a tent for each” to stay on the mount of transfiguration. 🔹The comfort inns of our lives are not the journey’s end. “If we stayed home and did nothing, doom would find us anyway sooner or later.” - Treebeard Book III, ch. 4. 🔹What are the Rivendell’s of your life? If you don’t travel on, morodor will come to you. (Tolkien’s insight from wwII.) “But we must do something soon. The enemy is moving.” G to F, Book I, Ch.2 🔹Huxley said men forget the lessons of history and that is the most important lesson of history. Tolkien says if we don’t understand why we must all leave Rivendale, history will repeat.🔹Leave the comfort inn and don’t settle on any idea of the journeys end, you will only be deceived! 🔹There is no arriving, only going. Keep going. #mondaymotivation
