A Story of Awareness, Acceptance and Forgiveness

This short film tugged at my heart strings…

A father and son are sitting on a bench. Suddenly a sparrow lands across them…

Father and Son on a Bench

This video brings them closer together, but not without awareness.

It seems that it is not about how many times something can be asked of someone for them to react; but the reaction itself that appeared from an angered, egotistical mind.

The father was perceived as someone who could not understand why he could be given the same reply over and over again, and still be inquisitive. The law of mirrors enabled the son to see and to hear his own voice as if the father was the innocent child he loved so dearly. This is probably a lesson anyone can grasp and learn from. We all see ourselves at some point reacting to an experience and creating a destructive reality from it.

If we choose to look at the reaction and how it occurred, we can then see our ego for what it truly is – the fear and underlying aggravation we feel when something like this occurs in our daily lives. By embracing and accepting these emotions we are freed from the ego and able to see to the beauty; eternally present in each and every one of us.
