I love movies. Saw another great one about the power of our emotional life. It's low-budget, a bit slow to start, but so creative and very rewarding. It's called Ink.
Ink takes on the powerful--and not easy--issues of guilt and shame; how we damn ourselves through our inability to take action in the face of these powerful feelings. It takes on the existential fear that if we face the truth about our actions, we will be destroyed.
And no, destroyed is not too strong of a word. How will we be destroyed? Ask yourself that question the next time you realize that you are beating yourself up over something you've done. Stop beating yourself up and take action. Hard to do? What are you afraid of?
