I watched the movie 'Green Lantern' and felt compelled to share my insights with fellow compatriots in ATS.
Maybe it was kitsched and cliched for some, as most movie storylines are nowadays, but there is a deeper meaning and message the writer wants to share
with as many as possible, and that is to overcoming fear.
Many cliches too on how to handle fear, such as ' nothing to fear except fear itself'. But if you watched the movie, and contemplate later, you will
realize a higher level of consciousness on 'fear'.
When the villain of the movie was thrown into the sun, the immortal whom had been claimed by the immortal council of being able to conquer fear
itself, was itself in fear when he was finally destroyed.
Fear is pervasive and perennial in all beings. We often fear what tomorrow will bring - food on the table for our loved ones, etc and the greatest
fear is death itself, even amongst the bravest of us humans. With fear, it incapicitates us to zero action to make good and succumbing to our fears,
go screaming as we slowly die in degrees, instead of taking actions we can manipulate or correct that course while still alive, to take a chance,
FEARLESSLY, come what may.
But in the end, we all will die, and it will only be once, as the immortal villain in the movie had.
It is HOW we lived that we humans will be remembered. Even if we are dead, if we had done something worthy and good for our society, we would be
remembered eternally, and that's where true immortality lays.
If the villain had gracefully died, he would have been deemed to be truly fearless. But he did not. He died a coward and a failure, by the evil he had
done and be eternally remembered as,
Thus, let us all dispel our fears, not in terms of foolhardiness performing foolish and idiotic stunts or harming innocent lives, but LIVING &
CHERISHING our lives, worthy of rememberance by generations, a role model for future generations, our mission on Earth this life, so that others will
take hope and inspiration from, for their generations, as previous generations of founding fathers had done for us all for our todays, to the day we
only mortals will eventually have to pass on, fearlessly.....
I recommend this movie to others for its message, in these dire times...
