well sharing some of my personal experiences..well can also consider it some kind of review!
after watching a lot of sweet romantic movies,i just wanted a change of flavour... some friend of mine suggested to watch "peaceful warrior" ,however the name itself seemed repelling to me..thought was some kind of movie with loads of fighting n stuffs..but finally i ended up liking it and sharing my experience with you all here.
well the movie was of a different note(from what i'd preassumed) it was all about the struggle of a gymnast..i won't discuss the story here...can watch and find out..i will just speak up about my favourite lines from the movie.
there was an incident in the movie which according to me is worth description.
i'll just refer the 2 characters involved as the "young man" and the "old man"..because referring to their names will require some highlights of the story which i really want to omit!
so let me begin
it was just that the old man told the young one that he'll give him something "precious" if he climbs up a mountain with him..in the greed of that "precious" stuff the young man agreed .while climbing up the journey they had was wonderful..full of splendid experiences.but when they reached the peak..the younger one got curious and asked for the promised "precious" thing..it was then the old man gave him an ordinary stone..seeing which the younger one was furious...he felt like being cheated!..he asked if this was what for which he'd taken up so much pain and climbed up the whole mountain!
the old man asked :"how was your journey up here?"
"the journey was awesome...but..is this ordinary stone worth my efforts that i'd taken to come up here??"the young 1 replied
now the old man smiled and said
"what matters you more the JOURNEY OR THE DESTINATION"?
yes this is it..life is a journey with a fixed "END" ,..i.e. inevitable death...
so what matters us,..our journey or the destination we ought to seek??
so lets ENJOY THIS journey to fullest!!..life is a journey..enjoy as a traveller..before the destination comes,,,there are still some great experiences in store for you!
well moving forward..(we were discussing about the movie)
another well said lines were:
YOU SHALL ALWAYS STAY PEACEFUL AND IN FULL HARMONY WITH LIFE IF YOU FOLLOW THE FOLLOWING 3 PRINCIPLES!
Humour- calls for always having a sense of HUMOUR...specially about OURSELF...we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously..life is not meant to be taken seriously..so it is well said that whatever happens to us (howsoever bad),,,lets take it humourously..better said in hindi as "MAJAK ME UDA DO YAAR"...
paradox-well this is all about the uncertainity that life bestows on us..we can never know what is there in future for us..life is a MYSTERY so let it be..why wasting time in futile efforts to understand it..just let it be...
here lines of the animation movie(one of my fav)KUNG FU PANDA ..is damn relevant-
"YESTERDAY IS HISTORY"
"TOMORROW IS MYSTERY"
"TODAY IS A GIFT---and that's why we call it PRESENT"
but on the contrary..we humans waste soo much time in thinking of future..its not bad planning things..because that is important ..but what i am talking about here is anticipating the future...what will happen!..worrying.n such kind of stuffs!!
so u all know..no need to solve the mystery coz life indeed is a PARADOX!..so just do the best and leave the rest..!!
finally comes CHANGE..no need to say much about it..it is something that is law of nature..everything changes..we know it still we are indifferent to this fact!..the more familiar we become to this aspect of life the closer we'll be to its peaceful version!..so EVERYTHING CHANGES,..BE READY TO FACE IT ANYTIME!!
seems have written much..well this is just my interpretation of some of the lines of the movie..if you watch it..you may find some totally different interpretation as it is the way we are..no 2 of us are alike !..hope if u don't find any vision you'll definitely find entertainment!
---ok..now i feel like i am done with typing this post..hope i haven't made many spelling mistakes:P..because "B" of my keyboard doesn't seem to function so well..-----
