Why Movies & Meaning?

 

As a country, we love talking. Our favourite conversations are about the Sarkar, Criket and Sanima- films. Sometimes books too. The good thing about conversations on films is that it is a space that allows us to become very intimate and non-controversial. And it binds us with each other, and yet it helps us both define and refine us internally.

These movies constitute life and stories. Stories, that make us. Lives, that we lead. And in the movies a voice and vision- which express of us as we are. Hence storytelling is an Art we love. Because it is the only art form where we find ourselves, build, and recreate ourselves. We grow up listening to our grandparents’ reading fables, and then we go on to watch these fables come alive on our screen.


When an actor watches a film, his view is not the same as our view is as audiences. He looks at how that scene was created while we see what this scene is delivering or trying to say to us. At Curedemy, we face one big problem. When we watch a film, we cannot help but go deep into the character and story. And, more often than not, we land up doing a deep diagnosis of the life of the characters and story itself. That’s when we came up with the idea- ‘how about sharing our deep diagnosis with you?’ And we got excited when we discovered this is the best way, we can explain our deep research- about how it impacts health and wellbeing and drives our choices.

So we did a Deep Diagnosis on Dev Bhumi- (read here:  Dev Bhoomi) and we went deep into the subject of love and, what love does and how to love.

Then we did an analysis on the trailer of Brahmastra. (Read here: 7 reasons why we brahmastra trailer doesn’t work for me). Our view and take on the trailer were taken more as standing for our ancient heritage and help awaken people if this is being misused.
You can join us too. Let us converse on our Diagnosis. And we are sure you would have a point of view too. Let us talk about films to turn in and make better sense out of our life. You are welcome to and can also suggest any film you would want us to diagnose.

Nothing lives inside us without being fed by our breath.

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
