Remember the film Mona Lisa Smile? I watched it several times...loved it, without contemplating ever on the reason why I liked it. Two days back, while surfing the channels, I caught last few scenes from the movie. The last part had the key dialogues, told me why I liked the movie, back then, and even now. I am going to share a few lines told by Betty Warren, with which I totally, completely and whole-heartedly agree. This particular dialogue and its meaning made me realize deep inside me, as to why I loved this movie.
Betty Warren: I've heard her called a quitter for leaving and aimless wanderer. But not all who wander are aimless, especially those who seek truth beyond tradition, beyond definition, beyond the image. I'll never forget you.
Those who have not watched this classic, please do watch. :) You will know that quitting on something at times does not make you loser, neither holding onto everything makes you any stronger or winner all the time. When we seek the truth, we must not follow any tradition, any set rules, any damn format. We must be dare enough to let go of all pre-conceived ideas, free enough to perceive things without prejudice, beyond pre-defined texts, break free of all self-developed subjective truths to perceive that ultimate Satya, the truth!
The search may and will turn you into a wanderer in the eyes of the normal world...they will say, "oh the aimless person on a rudderless ship". But in reality, you are a wanderer, but not aimless. You, the lucky one to have started your journey to seek the truth.....you are actually much more ahead of your peers in that search! :)
Here is to us, the wanders... the seeker of truth! Cheers! Love live our journey! Long live the quest!
