Getting all metaphorical
A few days ago, on my son's birthday we went to the local cinema to see a new film, 'Revolver'. I thought it was brilliant.
I know some would say its just a weird gangster film but I thought it was more than that. Maybe I'm seeing something that's not there but I think the main character played out (and this the whole point of the story) the struggle we all have between our everyday ego 'thinking' mind (the matrix of fears, doubts and suffering we project onto the world) and our true nature (the source of all love, happiness and power within us) which the 'ego' does its best to hide from our awareness.
Because you can never see the Matrix from within it. As it says in the very last line of 'Revolver' -
"the greatest con that he ever pulled was making you believe that he is you"
But strange that I was not told
That the brain can hold
In a tiny ivory cell
God's heaven and hell.
