The new batman v superman movie, brought to mind my blog post on the subject of these superheroes (June 3, 2013). This new flick is complex and adversarial and of course this sells movie tickets.
In the June 3rd blog, I talk about natural power: describe the energy of the vortexes in Sedona, as I wrote this piece during one of my visits. These vortexes have “an intense flow of energy which assists in meditating. The veil of separation between our earthly dimension and other dimensions is thin!”
I met a woman “who learned to bend metal with her concentrated focus…the metal softened like butter under this force.” WHAM POW Batman comes to mind until I realize that it is Superman who “bends steel with his bare hands.”
Remember the prelude to the TV show:
“Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive;
Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound-
Look up in the sky. It’s a bird; it’s a plane; it’s superman!”
Growing up, I looked up to both of these crusaders as they “…offer a way for us to feel powerful through the exploits of comic book characters as though we feel incapable or ill equipped to face…the fears ourselves.”
I also describe a book where the protagonist “is frightened by the presence of something or someone following him…with the help of his guides, he learns the most important survival skills: courage, faith, self-defense, and more – to face his dreaded fears.” The book inspires us to walk through fear. Nelson Mandela has said that when he is afraid, he acts boldly.
We have many human heroes from Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, and Eleanor Roosevelt. They…” inspire by their actions. They are flesh and blood people, not fictional beings – who accomplished great things through their passion, intention and focus. I am describing all of this to remind us to look within for our strength because incredible power lies here.”
Let me return to the beginning, it is neither Batman nor Superman…but the boldness of the self loving us…the WE…the I AM… In the direction of love and compassion we are connected to all that is…where we co-create and find empowerment. The force is with us…
