First Blog - Clous Atlas
Hello beautiful people =]
I've never actually written a blog post so I've decided I'll just put a little bit about me on here.
I'm 17, I play the clarinet (among many other instruments)
Music is my passion, and my life.
I am in love.
I am young, and alive and free.
I strive to find love and beauty in everything I see.
I strive to fins inner peace and total happiness on our earth mother.
I love my life. And everyone and everything in it <3
Now to talk about a movie I saw a few nights ago with my boyfriend. It's called "Cloud Atlas" and I'll start by saying it opened my eyes. It's actually 6 individual stories that lace together in the end.
One of the quotes from the movie that really struck me was: "Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future."
If I think about it, this statement is so truthful. I believe there is no better way to describe how our future's are born.
What I believe this movie was about is basically, love triumphs all. Past, present, and future. All the crap in life that can't be stopped, anything that could get you down, it doesn't matter at all. As The Beatles once said "All you need is love, love is all you need".
That love is something that reaches into the most intimate places of your being, and cannot exist without connecting with someone else. That love becomes something produced by the two of you, yet not belonging to either of you. It is a greater work of art than even a masterpiece composition.
Another quote that struck me from this movie was "I believe death is only a door. One closes, and another opens. If I were to imagine heaven, I would imagine a door opening. And he would be waiting for me there."
By "he" in this quote, Sonmi-451 was referring to Hae-Joo Im, who becomes her lover in the end. This quote is exactly how I think of death. Only I imagine on the other side of that open door is a place better than we can only imagine. Some will call it heaven. I personally, will call it home.
Anyways, I recommend this movie to anyone! It's kind of long, and it jumps from story to story a bit but if you pay attention to the storyline, it all makes perfect sense in the end. If anyone else has seen the movie or read the book (I haven't read the book yet, but I will) please tell me what you thought about it =]
Peace and love to all.
