Avatar: An Unlikely Connection
I went to see the movie Avatar over the weekend, I must admit I didn’t know much about the movie other than it had used cutting edge technology, grossed over a billion dollars and was directed by James Cameron. My primary motive was my 17 yr old son really wanted to see it, and let’s face if your teen wants to spend time with you it’s a go.
Imagine my surprise when I not only enjoyed the movie but became a raving fan. Unbeknownst to me the plot line is very parallel to the shift in consciousness that we are currently experiencing. As the plot unfolded I found myself nodding and grinning from ear to ear, oh yes I can relate. As the main character Jake Scully becomes immersed in the Na’vi tribes culture I witnessed him awaken and expand his consciousness as he moved from fear based reality to a love based reality, a beautiful thing to witness.
The experienced caused me to take a look at my own perceptions, after all why was I so surprised that this blockbuster movie had a deeper meaning and where else was I blind to the deeper meaning. It does give you food for thought. Have you experienced this blindness in your life?
