Re: Split off from “Welcome Tolkiengnostic”

Maybe "Not Specified Further" would be a more appropriate section for this discussion: I've mentioned a personal experience in one line of my last post (and only to relate it to Davidsen's theory), I don't think this makes the last seven posts "Mildir's gnosis". Davidsen's thesis is a subject of int...

Re: Welcome Tolkiengnostic and Lazycat1984

Despite their fictional basis, fiction-based religions are genuine religions because the activity and beliefs of which they consist refer to supernatural entities which are claimed to exist in the actual world. As such, fiction-based religions can be contrasted with fandom which, as a form of play,...

Re: Welcome Tolkiengnostic and Lazycat1984

reading it will teach you nothing about gnosis or Tolkien. Well, I'll give it a look all the same (when people mention Tolkien in the same breath as spirituality there is always something interesting). Thank you for the information. :) Well, show me! There is this organization: https://it-it.facebo...

Split off from “Welcome Tolkiengnostic”

Also I kind of stumbled into Markus Davidson’s thesis on Tolkien spirituality which is why I’m here. I can't find anything online... :hmm: What's this thesis about ? It’s not something that is talked about a lot among Tolkien enthusiasts, and neither among spiritual seekers. Times are changing. You...

Re: There is no easy way to tell it, but there's something you need to know...

And I'm totally uninterested in convincing others that that was not the ordinary climate, because I don't need to believe this, I've had the unique opportunity to know this. But it is not through me (directly) that any of you - I think - will have the same opportunity. So, please, don't try to convi...

Re: There is no easy way to tell it, but there's something you need to know...

A bank wanted to auction the house where what is left of my family used to live. Not because of me, but because of debts which another person - who, sadly, was the owner of that house - had incurred. They gave us an ultimatum: we should leave the house, we had few months of time to do it. In that pe...

Re: The Odes of the Airs

Note: In Baladhren the phoneme /sh/ does not correspond (exactly) to the English /sh/. It does not represent the sound [ʃ], but rather the sound [ʂ], which is a more "deeply swishing" sound. The phoneme /ph/ does not correspond to the English /f/. In order to reproduce this sound you have to pronoun...

Re: The Odes of the Airs

This poem has also been translated into Baladhren (i.e.: a language which - according to those I identify as memories from another life - is called Valarin or Baladhren and is mainly spoken by spirits of might called Valar or Baelain by a people I cannot but identify as the Eldar). Some friends advi...

The Odes of the Airs

This poem is written in Vinyaquenya, the Quenya which - according to those which I identify as memories from another life - is today spoken in a land called Valinor (or Balannor) by its inhabitants. I've always thought it describes the feelings of a Maia dancing with the Súruli, the Spirits of the A...

Speaking of interesting things - I learned of this forum interestingly as well. Several years ago, a friend had pointed out Calantirniel's website to me (Elven Path) and I eagerly signed up to it. Years went by, and I never heard anything more about it. Then, this year, on my birthday, I received s...

Re: My first encounter with Lada Haldeson and what followed

So, that night I went to bed without having done my homework and that caused me enormous anxiety. To tell the truth, I was desperate. It wasn’t the first time it happened, and this time - I seem to remember - there was even going to be an oral exam. I should have studied for it, but I didn’t. I coul...

Re: Songs not just mine

And then there was another kind of songs: the ones I read in the books by J.R.R. Tolkien (which I discovered only at 16) and, somehow, I recognized . When I saw the lyrics, the melody - often along with images and feelings - slowly came to my mind, as if it were just hidden in my memory. In a coupl...

Songs not just mine

[...]You have to know that, since I was only 6, I used to sing those that my mother called “my songs”. She has always assumed that they were invented songs, because the lyrics were, well, weird. I didn’t sing in any known language, people around me often said I sang “in gibberish”. Deep down inside...
