Last night I watched the movie GRAVITY on Net flicks. I did not see it last year when it came out and I can see why it won as many awards as it did.
It was truly a visual wonder filled with suspense the entire time. In fact.....I had a hard time sleeping after watching it.
I know this post is entirely out of sync with this joyous Holiday Season...but perhaps if we delve a little deeper it is not. For me, the end of another year ALWAYS brings a time of introspection.
In fact, I believe this movie has an important message during this time of gift giving and shopping....baking and partying. Whether you believe in God or your own version of the Creator....
our Universe is beyond imagining. We each believe we are so very important with our small every day problems and tasks...but the reality is we are such a minute part of this incredible whole...and so very often we don't keep this in the forefront of our thoughts. We are really only here for a "blip" in time.
Each day we are given on this Earth is a wonderment...and should be viewed as such. The Creator gave us life and the Universe and I will guarantee he or she could care less about what present you give Aunt Jane or how lovely your home is decked out for the holiday season. Nor does he or she care about how great a cookie you bake or the special outfit you will wear to the Christmas party.
I believe the Creator only cares about our loving the planet and each other. I believe he/she wants us to realize how special a GIFT was given us with our spectacular Universe. Perhaps if all mankind would simply reflect on this simple fact and put aside our egos the world would stand a chance of being healed.
It is just me thinking out loud today....thanks for listening.
