"The Road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say."
Yeah... you guessed it, from Lord of the Rings, Bilbo's song....
It seems to me a pithy summation of being in the world, in the moment, and engaging with it wholeheartedly, and just... continuing on, handling whatever life throws at you (and not only you but all your fellow-travellers..).... To me it is very concise, but powerful and.. evocative of something strong and brisk, almost mystical.... I hope this jives with any of you folks....
This saying also follows on the heel of detachment, and is such a cheerful respite from the power of the Ring (which can signify most any addiction).... This scene to me seems very powerful....
