Last night, Peter and I went to the movies!!! Yippee!!!
I do love a good movie; and I do like a bad movie. Movies are amazing!
I highly recommend BUCK; the story of Buck Brannaman – an unsung hero. It is a story of redemption and resurrection. The movie has won more awards than a two year old has teeth (I don’t know how many teeth a two year old has, but you get the point.)
A review of Buck (source: www.buckthefilm.com): Our therapeutic culture is lousy with stories of people struggling to spin childhood traumas into something that leaves the world a better place than the one that damaged them, but I’ve never seen a film in which the link between a trauma and its triumphant transmutation is as vivid as in Buck.
Cindy Meehl’s shambling yet uncannily beautiful documentary tells the story of Buck Brannaman, a rangy, bow-legged cowboy who travels the country 40 weeks a year hosting four-day clinics. Brannaman was an adviser on the film of The Horse Whisperer and the moniker is often attached to him, but I’d call him the Horse Empath. He sees himself through the animals’ eyes and feels their childlike skittishness, their primal fear. ….
If you can, go – see that movie; fold in this Einstein quote – and meditate on the word compassion.
“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us Universe‚ a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
– Albert Einstein
