QUESTION: Masters, I watched a movie called Forrest Gump. In this movie, it’s shown how Mr. Gump is flowing with the divine flow of life without any judgement whereas people around him think he is dumb and a fool. Is this the way human beings are supposed to live/flow? Can you please guide me how we should perceive life in divine ways? ~Rai, India
ANSWER: You have picked up on the spiritual message of Forrest Gump that is missed by most of the world. Forrest lives in a world of non-ego, non-judgment. This is the state of unconditional love where everything and everyone is honored for the choices they have made and not criticized or graded on their decisions. He honors his own choices and isn’t influenced by anyone else. However, the unfortunate story line makes it seem as if only those of limited intelligence can exist in this fantastic situation.
One theory is that the writers wanted people to see the blissfulness of such a life style but didn’t think that society would accept the probability for themselves unless the subject was of reduced mentality. Others say the message is that living day to day in the moment opens you to all the possibilities normally missed when you are too caught up in yourself. Others think it is a film about potential for those of minimal intelligence. While still others believe it is just a love story.
For those on a path of enlightenment, it shows how one may live in the fourth dimension, rejecting all negativity and always choosing positive thoughts and actions. This is a lifestyle and not an indication that it not possible for anyone who chooses to live this way. Go with the flow of unconditional love by banning all negativity and judgment from your life. Enjoy the blissful love of an environment with nothing but positive love energy.
Home, Source, your place of origin is unconditional love. It is difficult to attain that energy on Earth where the default emotion and action for humanity is negativity. It can be done; it just takes some work.
