E-motion Pictures

on October 7, 2014

We are human and this means we feel emotion.  E-motion, energy in motion….  Is this all we are? Of course not, but this what makes us unique in this world.  When a person is immature emotions often get the better of them and as they grow they learn to harness this energy and direct its flow.  It is a tool for deepening appreciation and understanding of life itself.  Would you be afraid of a hammer or a pencil?  Of course not, they are simply tools for expression… for creating.  Emotions are also this … a tool for creating, expressing, and appreciating.  Even though emotions are only one aspect of our being we must learn to respect this aspect and indeed embrace this gift of being human.

With all this being said, there is a wonderful creation we have made to honor, practice, and appreciate the emotions of mankind, The Motion Picture!  Today it comes in many forms from home video & webcam to TV & Movies.  There is no greater tool for learning and appreciating emotion than this medium of TV & Movies.  And let us remember in the beginning they were called Motion Pictures for a very simple reason.  In fact they are E-Motion in Pictures.  So if a movie or television show does not bring out your emotions, I posit it does not deserve to be viewed and that it has failed its purpose.  When I watch a show I use two markers for success, one being that the show makes me laugh, and the other is I feel the need to cry.  The tears may be of joy, but if you are not crying then you are not connecting to your emotional drivetrain.  The key word here is feeling.  The shows you watch should make you feel and the deeper the better!

Now that you are connected to your inner feelings we can move on to the positive and negative of emotion.  Does it matter which type you are feeling?  Of course it does!  Negative feelings are important to sort out and movies can really help you do this without the dire consequences of doing it in person.  Do you know what envy feels like?  How about jealousy?  These are powerful emotions and learning to deal with them constructively is a prerequisite for Spiritual growth and for living peacefully in this world.  Will you need to sort through these emotions in person? Yes and if you have a good understanding of them from watching movies the process is less harmful and more beneficial.  The same can be said for positive emotions like love and respect.

The Universe provides all you need to grow and prosper.  Movies are a valuable part of the process when used consciously.  Never fear your emotions, nor should you avoid feeling them.  Allow them to flow and you will be the better for it.  When you make this a conscious process more the better!  I bless you on your Journey of Love and happy viewing.
