After Earth

“…you must realize that fear is not real.

It is a product of thoughts you create.

Do not misunderstand me:

danger is very real,

but fear is a choice.

Do you know where we are?

This is Earth.”

That’s a quote from a not yet released movie, After Earth.  It caught my attention for the bit of “new thought” they have scripted.

The latter part of the dialogue reminds me of a portion of my favorite Rilke poem: “nearby is the country they call Life.  You will know it by its seriousness.  Give me your hand.”

Yes, there are times it can get rather serious down here on planet earth.  Those times are a call to remember – I am not alone in this, nor have I ever been.

Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within;
Opening to my loss,
I gain the embrace of the universe;
Surrendering into emptiness,
I find fullness without end.
Each condition I flee from pursues me,
Each condition I welcome transforms me
And becomes itself transformed
Into its radiant jewel-like essence.
I bow to the one who has made it so,
Who has crafted this Master Game.
To play it is purest delight;
To honor its form–true devotion.
