Last night at Spiritual Cinema we watched the beautiful movie, I Am by Tom Shadyac. There were a couple of quotes, which inspired me, in the movie but I had not taken any notes, so I went to the directorâ€™s website to search for them. Instead of finding the exact ideas I was seeking I discovered these from Hafiz:
â€œWhen all your desires are distilled
You will cast just two votes
To love more
And be happyâ€
â€œI wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The Astonishing Light
Of your own Being.â€
These two thoughts really capture the theme of this thoughtful movie well. I do not think there is anything I can add to these profound words. Hafizâ€™s wishes are my own and they point to the reasons I feel compelled to write and share my insights. If I had one wish for anyone who may read this it would be that you might discover that you are LOVE and that everything in your world reflects your awareness of that Truth.
As an interesting side note, no one present last night had read yesterdayâ€™s post, yet the first thing we discussed as soon as we stopped the movie was the importance of doing work you love. What is serendipitous about this was the fact that it was not me who initiated this aspect of our discussion. I love the way life unfolds.
Life is a beautiful dance when we listen to the music within us. Thank you for sharing this dance with me.
