2012 & My Learning

The very first thing that I loved about this movie is the title itself. ‘2012’ is the gorgeous title that can bring audience to the theaters. The movie hadn’t required much publicity, as most of the world is already aware of the predictions on the devastations that are said to be happened in 2012.

Well, I’m not here to write the movie review. Still, to brief my movie experience, I would say, the future catastrophes had been touchingly depicted. The story line was sensitively written, though some laziness had been shown in the screen play. The director was technically correct about the earth’s phenomena, though some commercial aspects were missing throughout.
On the whole, it was a warm and earth-quaking experience.

Apart from all the devastations those have been shown, there are few aspects in which I learned some lessons for my life. Here I go…

Tea cup and the human mind…

** There was a scene in which Lama explained one interesting fact of life to his fellow-person. The Lama started to fill the first cup with tea. Once the cup was full, he started to fill another cup. But this time he kept on pouring tea into it, even though it was full and overflowing. ((Sorry for the pic here, I could not get the overflowing cup, so I kept this overflowing glass))

As the fellow person indicated the overflow, the Lama said
“Human mind is also like a tea cup. To get new drops of tea into the cup, you have to empty the cup first. Similarly, to get new thoughts in to mind, you have to clean the older thoughts time to time”

How true!!!

I have been experiencing this fact practically in my life. But I observed the same only after hearing and understanding him. To give you a simple example, I take my blog as the subject now. If you see my previous month’s posts, I almost posted one per day. Many of my readers asked me how I get those in-depth thoughts every day. One of my good friends made a step further asked me if all the day I sit and only think!! I loved those though.

This month, I haven’t been expressing my thoughts time to time because of my tight schedule. Hence, I’m not getting any new thoughts in to my mind. Though they come once in a while, they go in vain after being entertained for a smaller duration.

May be, it time for me to clean my mind!! I’ll do.

“Make Time”

The US president had been hurried up by his chief advisor to step in to the ‘Air force one’ so that they would escape the incoming Tsunami.

President: Please give me some time
Chief: We don’t have any time sir.

President: I want few seconds, for my prayer.
Chief: Mr. President, we have to rush, we don’t have any time.

As the discussion heated up, the president would shout at the chief and at the other officials “Make Time…” the chief vacated the room and the door was closed.

Later, the president decided to stay back in the US and prepared himself to get collapsed along with his own people, being the last president of the United States of America. This along with his last address to the US people touched my heart.

Coming back to “Make Time…”…

Yeah, it’s true, at least for me in these days especially. It is up to me how I adjust and arrange my time so that I would do justice to my inner self. I have not been able to do it since some days, and from now, I decided to do it only for my sake.

Thanks to ‘2012’ for being such an inductive in the two most important aspects of my life. Let us see how the learning works.

I don’t know what is going to happen in 2012, but one thing is for sure that there are some alarming issues across the globe as on today, and most of them are man made. So, it is up to us how to ensure that the earth would carry us longer.

"Let us do our best to hope for the best"

Amity Me said...

Hi Prams!

I very much liked Lama's thoughts on "emptying tea cup in a sense that it's a way of having some more as in our thoughts, we have to empty some to have new thoughts...:)

Very nice post Prams and as a usual observation, full or morals from beginning to end...:)

have a great day dear!

Love to you Prams, Di

Anya said...

Nice one.

Snow White said...

Jack said...


Good lessons drawn from the movie. Now coming to the prediction of Mayan calender. I do not know if there are any basis for this but we may face much bigger catastrophe if mad persons lay their hands on nuclear arsenal.

Take care

Readers Dais said...

Hi! Pramoda,
That was gr8,we dont get to see movies at my place,so wont mind even if u come up with reviews :) cleaning by emptying? confused on that word,Is emptying or deleting
possible as long as memories exist, do we need to stack thoughts so it may serve as a foundation to new thoughts by which we can deliver something more creative,
Hey! me too getting confused,so nothing more...have a nice day :)

Escapist said...

Heard about the movie,bt didnt watch i am gonna look after it....sounds interesting.....


Prasad Gutti said...

Hi Pramoda,

After a long time, I have open your blog to visualise whats new in it.

First of all I was dumb to look over very few posts in it. And I thought that am I true what I am looking at. And also about to ask this, what happened to Prams, posting less posts. Later going into the deep of your latest post I have found more content than the container.

I have got good stuff from this post. One should manage his time to satisfy his innerness. Till now I too didnt satisfy my innerfeel. I too will start to sacrifise some time to it and will do something which gives good self satisfaction. Thanks for this inspiration dear... Have a nice journey in the life...


Jaunty anima said...

I loved the movie too...
And the part where the old man calls up to talk to his son in Japan is touching, ain't it...I loved his granddaughter...cutee!!!

hemanth said...

A nice one.. :)
Apart from what you have mentioned, I also see an INDIAN in this film.
I was sorry to watch only those people who have lot of money and presidents of some countries were only supposed (initially) to get into that 'BIG SHIP' to save their lives.

yamini meduri said...

i too have loved the movie to the core.

that rich man carried so many luxury cars instead of other human beings but when it came to life everything was left behind. the same man refused to take his girlfriend with him coz he suspected her of infidelity but at d last moment he preferred his son's life over his.

I'm the sort of guy who loves to seek radical things. Presently I'm fabricating my own solar panels. I'm doing it all alone without the assistance of my staff. I'm utilizing the net as the only way to acheive this. I encountered a truly brilliant site which explains how to build pv panels and wind generators. The website explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not really sure about how accurate the information given there iz. If some people over here who had xp with these works can have a peak and give your feedback in the page it will be grand and I would really appreciate it, cause I extremely like [URL=]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. You people are the best.
