"Come With Me if You Want to Live." Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 61
We’ve been a society running from
our demons, not wanting to face them, because we’ve got no experience with the
how. In the past we’ve been able to explore, conquer, quest, discover new
worlds, new lands. With the earth being covered and our popula-tion stretching
resources. There is nowhere to hide.
It’s time to stand and say.
don't run, Love don't hide, we won't turn away or back down from a fight...
too tough, it won't give up, not on us
don't run."-- Steve Holy
We don’t get a lot of things as
kids and with limited instruction it is interesting the stories we create and
In James Cameron’s first
Terminator film, the terror and horror of The Terminator wanting Sarah Conner
dead because she carries the seed that will save the world is a universal archetype
for that which is in us that our ego is continually terminating.
It’s all there… run from your
fear because you don’t understand what’s chasing you and why, and when you do
get it you realize it is not going to stop.You need to take a stand against the demon, hoping for a victory, so you
can live to save the world. Sarah Con-ner survives and she is different from
having faced her assassin.In the
sequel, The Terminator II in which the evil and bad Termi-nator from the first
movie becomes the savior of the heroine and hero in the second.You begin to see the archetypal pattern as
Arnold Schwarzenegger playing The Terminator appears before a terrified and
tortured and mentally unstable Sarah Conner fleeing for her life...Reaching out his hand.“Come with me if you want to live.”You have a choice.Crucifier or Savior.It’s all a matter of your perception,
shifting the illusion of time and space.In one movie, he’s the killer. In the other movie his is there to save
her.Our terminator can be our savior or
our crucifier depending on our perspective.Whatever you want to say about James Cameron he has his brand of rock
star metaphorical archetypal story tell-ing.We all relate because on some level we all get within us lies the
ability to save the world by facing our fears.Our Terminators can be a guide to peace or they can be our guide to
pain.It’s so wild that we choose which
story arc it will be.
Since we are not living in a
movie with a science fiction script containing and demonstrating the hero’s
journey in 100 plus ac-tion packed pages… We are on our own to figure it
out.No one teaches us how to face our
fears. When you have no instruction and there is no operating manual it seems
perfectly reasonable to hide from The Terminators of our lives and to keep up
the cycle of forever running away from our self, becoming fused to our fear,
allowing it to build an empire of untruths.
Hundreds of years ago there were
fairy tales to help children pro-cess through their childhood terrors and
remember the truth about themselves. Today with everyone’s personal hells being
medicated, avoided, deadened and our collective unconscious wounds raging
largely unprocessed we are at a turning point.
Don't hide from your fear.Stand and see the truth.Face what you need to face and watch the
resilience of your spirit rise to meet the needs of your soul's expression.
