|"What we hear is the quality of our listening" Robert Fripp|
It was during one of these moments we were discussing our favorite movies and decided to share with one another our best. Brought in my "Waking Ned Devine" and received "Fight Club" as the exchange with a warning; "you might have to watch this one a few times". Ordinarily would pass this movie up as I am not a big fan of Pitt's and it appeared to be a "boy type" movie. Yup, generation gap preferences were evident, yet out of respect, we exchanged our glossy DVD boxes.
Watched Fight Club that evening with my husband and what an eye opener for both of us; the battle of control is and always will be, our very own "self". If you submit to external signifier's of happiness; trophy partner, new vehicle, boat, home, plastic surgery, any new stimulus,...you reduce yourself into a blob of greed or worse, become a spectator. Spectators while coveting, invite control freaks in, allowing a subconscious manipulation dance while the blobs fraudulently prostitute and vampire those who come close. Oh and then there is of course the narrow path of living in-between.
My favorite line in this movie was, "It's only after we lost everything we are free to do anything".
|You can't see the stars until its dark|
I can remember abandoning myself into this thought oasis, Sure, could have taken control into my own hands, debased myself to denial, numbed my feelings with control substances or even worse, suicide. Instead chose to face the truth dead in the eyes and never forgot what was reflected back. The ability to let that which does not matter truly slide, stop trying to control everything and just let it go, especially when you know you don't have the power to stop something which is gone, in death or by willful choice. Ironically isn't that the gift God himself has given to all of us? CHOICE
Yup so when you share your best, with no thoughts of return, truth and healing come, all you have to do is ?
