The Wisdom of CGI

“To make something special you just have to believe it’s special.” – Mr Ping

^^ There is a lot of wisdom in kids films that often gets missed.

Gone

Would we survive if it all disappeared?
Wealth that is…..
With nothing of arbitrarily given value people would see
What really matters isn’t only money

Can, but should?

Just because you can, it doesn’t mean you should

Yet if you do, then you do not regret

Accept the choice, embrace every aspect of it

Mull over it in those times you can, reflect and learn

Repeat the action or banish it from your soul

Which ever you choose, never regret

Then remember this, even if banished it will never be too far away to be called upon

This is truth, this is your nature,

This is you.

It’s All About Time

It’s all in the timing.

The situations we are confronted with in life, who we turn to, who we see as the hero or the villain, is all largely dependent on the timing. This is an inconvenient truth that people will deny because it doesn’t suit them to believe it, even though it’s true.

I have been in various situations with skewed vision, but when you sit and look back it becomes very clear what was really going on.

One of those ‘kinda friends’ is in a situation where she is scared of being alone. Reading her messages I can see confusion, a lost little girls searching for the yellow brick road that’s buried under the muddy leaves. She will not admit it, she defends her views ferociously, it’s something she isn’t ready to accept yet but in time she will see that she doesn’t miss the person, she missing the feeling.

Feelings can be recreated, all it takes is the right conditions at the right time and the person who you thought was your one true love becomes nothing but a distant memory.

One thing I’ve learnt is that life is one giant experiment, like a science project in a lab all it takes is an accident to create a miracle or a disaster. Too many people try to force the conditions, but life just doesn’t work that way.

Life will either fall in to place or fall apart, you don’t get the choice of which. You’re merely swept along, caught in the current. The river might be straight and uneventful, or it might be filled rocks, jagged edges and danger at every turn, just sit back and see what comes your way and deal with it when it happens.

The young and naive views of the inexperienced is like looking in a mirror.

When I was 18 I knew far more than I do now. At 18 I had it all figured out, the world, life, relationships, simply everything and then I ‘fell in love’ well, for the first time anyway and it all changed. I built a business, I worked several jobs, I grew up and the cruel irony of it all is the more I learnt the more I didn’t know, nor would I ever know.

We were all young once, but we didn’t understand what it meant.
Do I sound condescending?

Probably. I’m sure there are people far younger than me who know far more and have had far more life experience, but does it matter?

No.

All that matters in the end is you realised your own ignorance, your own mortality and you don’t know what you think you know and you never will.

In the end, it’s all about time.

Books Galore

After a conversation this morning with Sabiscuit (https://sabiscuit.wordpress.com) I started to realise something.

For many people it doesn’t matter if their opinion is accepted by hundreds of thousands or by just one person, as long as it’s accepted.

Humans by nature are pack animals. In times of need we huddle together to survive the impending trouble, it is in this group we find comfort, it is in this group we devote our lives and sacrifice our sense of individuality.

It is in this group we allow ourselves to be assimilated in to the collective brain.  

I guess for some people it’s enough to be apart of something else, to lose individuality.

But, what they forget is that only the strong survive because they make sacrifices at the expense of the group.

Books:

I haven’t read a book in years, I came to realise this while looking at my bookshelf. In today’s world we don’t have any need to make a choice on which book we take with us, we can have them all at the mere touch of a button.
My books have been sorted on kindle for several years now, no matter where I am they always come with me and have been a gift at relieving boredom on more than one occasion. But I wonder if the fact that because books are now electronic they have lost a part of their wonder?

I remember the days when the excitement of turning was almost too much, those days when we had to stop ourselves skipping ahead because we could see the forthcoming chapters teasing us to sneak a peak. Now though it’s a simple swipe of the screen, there doesn’t seem to be the same intent need to look ahead anymore… Perhaps it’s because there are no pager to look forwards too, only the same screen and different words to stare at.

It pleases me though to look though my books and know that I have read them all. To know what is contained in each of them and how they have helped me grow and learn over the years. If you’re wondering what my books consist of I’m afraid you may be disappointed, but I shall let you in and tell you regardless.

My books are those of the mind and the body.

Anatomy, Psychology, Body Language, Business, Poetry and Philosophy. Not quite what some would consider exciting, but they have helped my to no end, once you understand how it all works you are better suited to help yourself and the others around you.

Stories are fun, but the best story is the one we live each day and the more we know the more detailed it becomes.
