She was told the world of men did not deserve her, she was told the world should be destroyed, for indeed, it did not deserve saving. Her response? “It isn’t about being deserving, it is about what you believe in, and I believe in love.”
I love this statement, for it is exactly how I feel and think ~ I am certain many of you do as well. It was stated in the movie that the choice between positive and negative (in different words) is the choice every man and woman must make. No one can make this choice for them, no one can determine how they will live, in their hearts and minds and in the world. This responsibility is absolutely our own.
I watched the film with a friend, who although he enjoyed it, he was also against it not being historically correct. I was baffled, as this is not about history as far as our many wars go.
Seeing the negatives has been a habit ingrained into the minds of humanity for centuries. Retraining our self to see things in a different manner can be quite difficult … it requires much effort, continuously.
Some call it “rewiring the brain”.
Many of us have experience hiding our true nature from the outside world. We do and say things we think will make us more likely be accepted into a group, or provide us with the advancement we seek.
The danger though, is that in doing this we find that eventually we are actually hiding from our self as well. Becoming lost to our core senses and truths, we may become angry, feeling as though the ‘freedom to be me‘ has been stripped, and we feel the invisible shackles society likes us to wear.
Embrace who you are, let your love light shine. You are the best version of you there will ever be. Seek wisdom from others, choose what works for you, leave that which does not resonate behind.
Everyone is on their own journey, travelling a path no one else has traveled in exactly the same way. What is learned can help others who may be experiencing something similar. If they ask, a sharing becomes possible, perhaps making the road smoother.
Imagine if we all tried, when asked, to make the road a bit smoother for each other ~ you for me, me for you, us for others, and others for us … on and on. We would all be better for it, and our bond would become so strong, no amount of darkness could penetrate it.
This is my hope for the world, my hope for all of us.
