The RED PILL OR BLUE PILL?
Life is all about the Choice you make, have you decided or you are waiting for fate, circumstances, friends or family to decide for you? Its 2014 now, what ever you could not achieve in the past years may as well not be achievable in the the next undying years, if you do not make that decision Today.
Fact or Fiction? True or False? Light or Dark? Positive or Negative? Good or Evil?
Have you watched The Matrix Movie, i personally feeel to date this is the world`s best movie, for some (ordinary) people, they have failed to grasp the meaning, its just a SciFi movie but for Techies and people with a spiritual undestanding this is not just a movie.
I was in Form 4 when this movie was released, Admitteddly i lost it the firt time i watched it but thoughts of some scenes boggled my mind everyday forcing me to revisit this movie again.
I watched this movie more than 60 times in the first two months, it was released, i learnt something new everytime I watched it, to date i occasionally watch it too and still impressed, its not just a movie, let me help explain some features about i picked while blogging.
The power of Choice, This what God has given to us, to decide on anything whether good or evil, productive or destructive.
These are just a few examples of the many choices we all personally have to decide between on a daily basis. Ultimately at the end of our lives we will look back and see that the fruit of our endeavors will be largely weighed and judged by which of these decisions we make.
In the Matrix the main character Neo encounters a very intriguing, strange and unique individual called Morpheus a leader of individuals who have been “unplugged” from the Matrix. Through a series of interactions and close terrifying encounters with negative opposing powers Neo begins to entertain the notion and thought of the Matrix being something that is real and not a hoax. Ultimately Neo comes to his own personal crossroad and Morpheus is there to provide help and meet him at the point of decision offering one last chance to Neo that he either takes the blue pill “stay in the fantasy” or the red pill “stay in wonderland”. Neo chooses the red pill to stay in the adventure of pursuing the depths of greater realities.
2 Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
Life is a beautiful thing. The blue skies above, the warm winds passing through one’s face, swimming in the many different seas, lakes and oceans of our planet, sharing life with many unique and wonderful types of people that God created in his own image and enjoying the privilege and honour of every moment we get to live, move and have our being in is simply magnificent.
