In these movies, I found intriguing thoughts that ring a bell! Let me start with:
A Beautiful Mind: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0268978/
Russel Crowe or Nash might be the eccentric example of someone who over-uses his mind but actually Nash exists in almost everyone of us, when we tend to analyze too much and rationalize everything around us.
Nash: What truly is logic? Who decides reason? My quest has taken me to the physical, the metaphysical, the delusional, and back. I have made the most important discovery of my career – the most important discovery of my life. It is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reason can be found…
So, the Mind is not the place where absolute truth lies. The heart is..The mind is Limited, The Heart is not..
Dr. Rosen: You can’t reason your way out of this!
Nash: Why not? Why can’t I?
Dr. Rosen: Because your mind is where the problem is in the first place!
And if the reasons of the mind sound logic, the reasons of the heart & soul sound authentic..
Alicia: How big is the universe?
Alicia: How do you know?
Nash: I know because all the data indicates it’s infinite.
Alicia: But it hasn’t been proven yet.
Alicia: You haven’t seen it.
Alicia: How do you know for sure?
Nash: I don’t, I just believe it.
Alicia: It’s the same with love I guess.
At the end, it’s all about Acceptance. There is no good for us to fight and resist back what we hate about ourselves, the good lies in our acceptance, our willingness to let go and move on..
Nash: I’ve gotten used to ignoring them and I think, as a result, they’ve kind of given up on me. I think that’s what it’s like with all our dreams and our nightmares, Martin, we’ve got to keep feeding them for them to stay alive.
Sweet November: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0230838/
What I love about this movie is this Thrill Sarah shows for life, this passion, this excitement and desire to enjoy life as it is!
Sarah: I surrender all attempts to control life, yours or mine. I live for one thing, to make you happy; to live firmly and joyously in the moment.
In this line, Sarah reveals, what I consider, one of the real secrets of happiness. didn’t you notice that only when we stop trying to control everything around us that things get eventually better? and then she adds another enlightening line that invites to even a greater happiness is Living Fully in the moment, getting out of the past nutshell or slowing down the future projection in our minds..
Sarah: If I’ve learned anything it’s that you should have the people who love you, around you as long as you possibly can.
I get distracted sometimes too and forget about how important to be surrounded by people you share love with is, yet whenever you are struggling all you think about is a shoulder to lean on..
Powder is the kind of movie that may seem absurd because of the simplicity of the story but the messages behind are deep and very spiritual.
The idea of Humanity:
Donald Ripley: It has become appallingly clear that our technology has surpassed our humanity. When I look at you, I have hope that maybe one day our humanity will surpass our technology
The idea of Separation:
Powder: Inside most people there’s a feeling of being separate, separated from everything.
Powder: And they’re not. They’re part of absolutely everyone, and everything.
