How could they possibly be related?
Well, maybe falling through the Rabbit Hole.
For now, I say, because I saw Flash of Genius today and cried. I cried for so many reasons. I cried because I am an attorney and I know I have advocated to settle because litigation costs would be insurmountable for my client. I cry because i witnessed how a good man, watched his marriage and family get destroyed, because others refused to acknowledge truth.
But before I cried watching Flash of Genius i cried because I saw previews for The Changeling. Am I confused? Because I posted some time ago about a book, The Stolen Child, and because of my love for Irish history, my love of the lore of the Faeries, I felt The Stolen Child was important. But the book itself humbled me to believe I knew what was important and what was not.
So I sat, waiting for Flash of Genius to begin, and had a preview to The Changeling which, if you have read, the Stolen Child, or perhaps other works, it would not be a bizarre topic for you. If you have lived untruths forced upon you by what you believed to be law abiding, good people of society, and have been harmed because of it, then you also know what i mean.
What it means is the disillusion of truth. Those in power preying over the good that live in truth. And it bothers me on deeper levels because my Grandfather was an executive of Ford. But i can only pray, he would not have done this to that man and his family. He is passed now, so I may have to wait to ask. On another level it bothered me deeply because I am an attorney and was disgusted by what I saw in regard to the attorneys on behalf of Ford. I spoke to Mary during that film and said please, please don’t let me be them. But I’m judging now, aren’t I? Ugh.
I cried. Just in the previews, I cried. And they also had to slam us with The Soloist, let’s save that discussion for another day.
All I can say is, truth resides within, if you cannot follow your own good heart, there is no sense looking to others.
Man is distorted, I don’t know why, it makes no sense to me individually, I’d rather let the guy who cuts me of pass safely than curse him out. But, I’m going to suffer myself, and watch The Changeling, knowing it is true and it exists today, knowing that to speak out, is often to condemn ourselves and those we love.
But, what, I ask you, because I no longer know, is,what is the point of silence?
May God and your heart guide you. May God not be what institutions teach you, rather, may God only be what resonates when the soul and heart meet.
I pray for you.
