The Self is the key. You are the key. If you want to make things better, focus on yourself. Do you have a relationship with yourself? Are you able to hold yourself and know yourself? Do you know what you are feeling? Do you know what you are thinking? Are you here with yourself? Do you Know yourself?

Self is the Key. You are the Key. You have the power. You are the power. You need to know the power. You need to know yourself. You need to know who you are right now in this moment in what you are thinking and feeling. And you need to start stopping whatever it is that is not best for you. You need to start stopping that which is harmful to Life.

Be the Self that is Free from all limitation, pain, abuse, destruction, and full of creation, ability, and potential. You start becoming through self-forgiveness.

Would you like to have a relationship with Your self?

Disney's Frozen 2013 Meaning and Lessons

The movie Frozen was made by Disney. It is an animated musical. There are some really interesting and different elements and story points that were present in this movie that actually had a greater depth and groundedness in reality than most films.

The most palpable story element is how Elsa's ice power are directly influenced and affected by her emotional state, especially fear. As well, if she is grounded and clear within herself her ice power also reflects that. So overall, depending on who Elsa is, her power and so her ice CREATION is determined by this. This is a very true theme, because in real life our 'who we are' influences and determines our own creations, whether it be a work of art, a wood crafting project, or something like making a speech or presentation, or simply having a conversation, if we are feeling a certain emotion or trapped in a certain thought, that will determine the outcome of who we are and what we produce. Movies have the power of story telling so they are able to make metaphors quite apparent, and so show their meaning very obviously. So Elsa's creation is an obvious reflection of who she is in the moment. Furthermore the movie reveals how when she is in emotional turmoil and fear, she creates consequences, which in this case meant hurting her sister Anna, and also creating a snow storm.

There is another story element that is equally palpable, and maybe more. When Elsa runs away from the town to hide in the mountain she feels free. But this is a false freedom. It is false because she is still creating consequences through her acceptance and allowance of fear of hurting others, and what others will say about her. Simply hiding and being alone is not the way to address the fear, it is running away from the fear, it is a reaction to the fear. But Elsa feels good and free, because of course she is temporarily free of the fear. She is feeling free of responsibility. That is a dangerous feeling for anyone to participate in. Freedom from responsibility is an illusion, and it is a basis for a feeling. No person can be free from responsibility, because everything you say and do has an impact. To be alive, exist is to hold power, and thus responsibility. Freedom as a feeling, is an illusion. We are all bound to each other, through the power we all share of being able to create a moment, which is shared amongst us.  At the same time, however, freedom from fear is possible, and is realized in the movie by the end. Elsa protects her sister and realizes that she can stand up and make a decision about who she is and what is the right decision and what is the best thing for her to do. This clarity and stance of who she is and what she will accept and allow means she regained directive principle over who she is and what she will create. Thus she ended the winter storm and she could express her power with precision and purpose by her hand.

An important lesson then is that freedom from responsibility is never possible, and is only consequential. However freedom from fear is possible, which simply means not allowing fear or any other element or part to determine and decide who you are, and what your creation is, that is both yourself and an expression of yourself that is an outflow of you. Another perspective is that freedom from yourself, absolutely, isn't possible, because you can't cut yourself off, or runaway from or separate yourself from yourself. That is also an illusion or lie. You can however understand yourself and reconcile parts of yourself where you recreate yourself and align yourself within a new aim or direction. There is nothing bad or evil about yourself, those are simply judgments. There are parts of yourself that are not understood, and so apparently bad, but within understanding you see how they are simply not directed and aligned to what is best for all, simply because you haven't taken responsibility for these parts and made a decision about who you are, and so actually created that part of you. Thus theses errors in self simply reveal what you need to look at within yourself and what requires your responsibility and direction.

In the movie, Elsa's parents weren't self-aware beings who stood within their own directive principles of themselves. Because if they were they could have assisted Elsa to take responsibility for her fear and direct herself, not only with the ice powers, but with her entire life. In the movie her parents actually guided Elsa to suppress her fears, and simply gave her reassuring lies to make her feel better. This is also something that is currently true in real life, because it is what happens most of the time. This is the result of us as human beings not being aware of how we are creating our own lives daily in each moment by what we accept and allow to come up within what we think and what we feel, including what we feel about what we think. Including such things fear but also all of that which is present in our minds and selves. For the most part we don't make a clear decision to become who we are, we for the most part just accidentally become who we are, and simply step into our lives as a predetermined path. To actually create our lives and be deliberate in deciding who we are is something that simply doesn't  happen, but should be happening. Unfortunately our decisions are usually made within believing what someone told us, or with what feels right, instead of a true investigation into what is really best for us and others.

There are more element I could discuss, but I will leave it to you to see what they are. Many movies and stories you can see and read several times and each time see something new and learn something new.
