1) Life of Pi
Who would have believed that a cruise at sea could take you to the depths of your soul? An Indian youngster named Pi survives a storm at sea and clings to a lifeboat in this adventure film. He and a Bengal Tiger are sharing a lifeboat.
Pi is thrust into a circumstance that requires him to take action in order to determine his own future. Some cultural and theological notions about right and wrong were shattered by hunger.
This lifeboat was his prison. A faint blue dot floating in a huge ocean of cosmic matter is where we are all at. We’re going to have to deal with the fact that no one is going to save us. We have no one to turn to. At the end of the day, Pi managed to maintain some spiritual freedom in the face of such overwhelming mental and physical strains.
It is possible to remove all of a man’s liberties save one: the freedom to choose one’s own path. Choosing whether or not to bow to the whims of fate can be made at any given moment. It doesn’t take long for the tiger and Pi to realize that they can’t exist apart from each other.
Reflecting his natural nature, the tiger. One must learn to reconcile the Yin and Yang inside themselves in order to attain happiness.
What about Life of Pi, the book that I found so inspiring? Just take a look at the scene on this Carnivorous island;
In this island of Vishnu, it is suggested that all of our pain is just a dream. In Hinduism, Vishnu’s dream is the source of the cosmos and all that we see and experience.
It implies that there is a continuum of existence that spans from conception to demise. And we all have to deal with the inevitable stages of life.
In order for life to be complete, there must be pain and death. When you embrace your fate and everything that it entails, you have the option to add deeper meaning to your life even in the most terrible of circumstances. You may maintain your dignity, courage, and selflessness like Pi. Alternatively, you may lose your humanity in the desperate struggle to survive and revert to animal form.
Suffering gives you a chance to develop moral principles that are otherwise difficult to acquire. This will be the deciding factor in whether or not you are deserving of all of your pain.
2) Pursuit of Happiness
A must-see biopic of Chris Gardner, a salesperson who is trying to earn a life selling a big but portable “bone density scanner,” is Pursuit of happiness.
He made a big risk early in life in the hopes that it would pay off.
In the end, things didn’t work out as planned, and he was forced to live in constant poverty after his wife left him.
Every time I see this scene, I can’t help but cry.
This man’s life is live proof that one may rise above one’s external circumstances by the power of one’s own inner will.
Affluent guys aren’t the only ones to fall into this category.
Humanity is constantly presented with the possibility of reaching something greater by enduring greater hardship.
Because of my own pain, I was unable to stand up.
Life is the only thing that will ever sting as hard as it does.
If I had allowed fate to pound me to the ground and keep me there for good, I would have been there for good.
The only way to win is to be able to take the blows and keep going.
For the first time in my life, I want to rewatch this film. This is the best example of the symbiotic relationship between gravity and quantum mechanics.
To grasp gravity, time and space in a new light, it provided me an updated perspective. We spend our time fretting about where we fit in the landscape.
a tiny speck in the vastness of space that we can temporarily control. When I was viewing this movie with surround sound, a notion came to my mind. When I witnessed this scene for the first time, I realized that the truth is set into motion by it.I’ve finally come to terms with the most important secret in the universe.
Life’s meaning and purpose are elusive concepts that no one can explain to another. It’s up to you to figure it out and take responsibility for your own actions.
If you’re successful, you’ll continue to grow despite all the humiliations you’ve suffered. Only in contemplation of the stars does a man have one final chance to experience ecstasy for a little period of time.
4) Bohemian Rhapsody
In the grand scheme of things, nothing truly matters.
Everything you’ve worked so hard to attain will be destroyed when you die.
As a result, why not devote your entire life to something you truly enjoy doing.
Don’t go for the money and glory, you’ll regret it.
Don’t follow the social agendas.
Decide to be true to who you are.
Become a Maverick!
Freddie got scorched because he flew too close to the sun.
A good thing gone too far can be deadly.
There are many snares in the road to fame.
To avoid harm, you must be careful.
Achieving these goals, in many cases, creates a moral self-trap.Your moral and spiritual senses will begin to fade the moment you let go of your grip on them.
5) The Shawshank Redemption
Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins deliver stunning performances.As soon as you restrict a man’s freedom, you alter the framework of his internal life.
Others cling to a sliver of optimism, while others show signs of rot.Get busy living or get busy dying are the movie’s guiding principles.
In prison, the human spirit is torn apart and its depths are exposed.This film deals with optimism and courage in a way that is relatable to everyone.
It’s true that hope has the power to set you free, but it may also consume you.
6) The Greatest Showman
It’s an all-new musical based on the life and career of P.T. Barnum, who rose from humble beginnings to become the greatest showman of the 19th century.
What we have here is the story of a man who refused to give up in the face of adversity.
We all want to be happy, so we establish objectives like buying a dream house, getting the job of our dreams, and amassing a fortune.
In the long run, achieving these goals will be worth it.
In the end, though, the accomplishment creates a trap.
In many cases, the struggle is more rewarding than the end result.
There is nothing we can’t do.
Nothing can compare to the boredom of running on the Hedonic Treadmill.
When you look back on your life, you’ll discover that the fight itself is more meaningful than the accomplishment of your goals.
Of course, most of us are only able to achieve a portion of our goals.
7) Truman Show
What we have here is a film within a film.Moreover, the major actor in this film is completely unaware of his role. He was raised on the stage and is now the property of the production business where he was born.
Millions of people have seen this film.When it comes to the concept of a “Truman Show,” it’s embedded in the belief that life is a stage pre-programmed by society and its many media outlets.
You have no ability to resist such authority due to the fact that your thoughts are constrained by it. A new mind and an end to authority can only be achieved by destroying the old unconscious and conscious defenses, securities that have been built up over time within you.If you want to be free, you have to give up your defenses.
Then you’ll begin to see the skeleton of authority in all its glory. It takes a strong intellect, not a sluggish one.
An even more critical life lesson that I learned from this film is presented in the section that follows.
Understanding the plot of Inception is a difficult task. For starters, you’ll need a lot of creative juices flowing.
Complex and multilayered scripts are at the heart of this film’s mysteries. When it comes to story-telling, Christopher Nolan is one of the best.
I love this line: If you’ll pardon the pun, there’s something important you should know about me. A virus-like quality characterizes a concept, making it extremely spread. An idea can sprout from the tiniest of seeds. It has the power to shape and define you, or to bring you to your knees.
Your thinking is just as much a product of your conditioning as my experience is a product of my conditioning.
There are times when the mind gets caught up in an idea, perhaps something you want so much that you want to become it.
It’s a picture of your ideal self. A projection of oneself. You end up putting in a lot of effort to get there. Moving targets are hard to hit.
You will never be content with who you are. You’re striving to become the person you want to be.
Your mind has pulled a prank on itself, much like running after your own shadow. After learning this skill, you’ll be able to see the illusion of your greatest wish right in front of your eyes Fire that can never be extinguished.
9) Schindler’s List
When it came to his life’s work, an industrialist focused solely on money. He was unconcerned about his spiritual growth.
One of the most heartfelt passages in movie history, and even in real life. Just one more life would mean the world to me…”
He was a scumbag, to say the least. Nazi spy and gambler in the Czechoslovakian city of Brno. His moral compass was completely devoid of any trace of self-control. There is no evidence of spiritual progress.
Nevertheless, when the time came to face his tremendous destiny, he did so with spiritual greatness commensurate with his glory in life.
During this time, his inner life became more and more intense, and he began to appreciate LIFE in new ways.
10) Forest Gump
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to fate. Everything in between is included in the life you’ve been given.
destiny, chance, and outcome, which may or may not be predicted in advance. A different outcome may be in store for those who dare to defy the system, exercise their rights, and take risks.
This film serves as a model for a more free society. “Life is like a box of chocolates,” my mamma used to tell me as a child. No one can predict the outcome of a game of chance.
11) Fight Club
I’ll let the movie’s quotes speak for themselves;
I’ve seen some of the strongest and most intelligent men ever in fight club. All of this potential is being squandered in my opinion. Goddamn it, a generation of slaves with white collars pumping gas and tending tables. Adverts have us chasing cars and clothes, working in jobs we despise, in order to acquire things we don’t actually need. Man, we’re in the middle of history’s sextet. A place without a purpose. There is no Great War in our day. There was no Great Depression. Our Great War is a battle for our souls, and our Great Depression is a battle for our very existence. The media has conditioned us to assume that we will all be rich, famous movie stars when we grow up. But we will not. And we’re beginning to realize this, too. And we’re utterly enraged.
You become a slave to the things you own. Only after we’ve lost everything are we free to act. The acid test is a good way to get to know me. I was a haughty and self-centered young guy. Every second of my life, I wondered why the universe had placed me in this situation. For no apparent reason at all, it happened. I did not break any laws.
Mental anguish is what hurts more than physical pain in such a situation, not the physical pain itself. Events occurred in a way that made me feel like I was looking at them from another dimension. Self-loathing had stripped me of all of my sense of self-worth; I was left helpless as I marched to my own grave. My entire world has been ripped from my grasp! As far as I was concerned, there was no hope for the future.
Although the exterior circumstances were extremely challenging, they actually provided me with an opportunity to grow spiritually beyond my own self!
It gave me a place to hide from the absurdity of it all. Only a few people have had the opportunity to turn these experiences into an inner triumph.
“It tasted like medicine, but I guess the patient needed it,” said Steve Jobs. I could have ignored the challenge and remained in a vegetative state in the hospital like the rest of the acid burnt victims. Alternatively,
12) Batman Begins
In Batman Begins, the writing is a fantastic piece of work!
I find myself absorbing and digesting every word to the core of my own experiences.
ALL the pain and anguish I’ve experienced.
To prevent my wound from becoming contaminated by external airborne viruses and bacteria, I was admitted to a Cleanroom. During this time, I was engulfed in wrath, tears, and pain (I had third degree burns on half of my face, nearly losing one of my eyes).
I was unable to wear anything on my upper body.
The hospital’s centralized air conditioning unit was blowing frigid air towards me.
