I watched the movie "Peaceful Warrior" last night for one of my classes, and it changed something inside me. For the first time, I REALLY understood what Sister Morgan means about "Living in the moment." And so, when I walked out of the Snow building I tried it; I stared at the snow swirling around the stadium lights for a good two minutes, thinking of nothing but the snowflakes, and, now and then, how they all looked like tiny bugs. Then, when I got to my car, I blew the fluffy snow off of my windows with my breath as if it were a large, fuzzy dandilion...and a happiness that started in my stomach and welled up to my face created a slight smile and gurgled out of me in a soft giggle. It was such a purely happy feeling--and for doing something so simple. Another concept the movie taught me was to "take out the trash," meaning, empty your mind of any fear, regret, anger, worry, anything!, that is holding you back from being happy, or being successful, or making others happy, etc. This is my new goal.
Has anyone else seen this movie (especially Sis. Morgan)? What did you think? I think it might be something worth watching in seminar. --Jenny
