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”
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.
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.
