Destroy Your Demons


Recommended Posts



There's a very powerful scene at the end of the movie, "Unforgiven."

It's when the bad guy is about to kill the sheriff.

And the sheriff says, "I don't deserve to die like this."

And just before the bad guy shoots him, he says, "Deserving's got nothing to do with it."

There are a lot of ways to interpret that scene, as well as the movie.

Since it starred Clint Eastwood, who is nearly always a good guy, it's hard to see him as the bad guy.

But according to Eastwood, who also directed, the movie was about how violence just destroys everything in its path.

Sometimes with no rhyme or reason.

With most hero movies, the good guys win in the end.

But the question is always in the back of our minds.

Since in real life, the good guys don't always win, and the bad guys never seem to get in trouble.

Especially the bad guys that run the world.

George Carlin frequently talked about this.

He would say things like, "It's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it."

Whenever we watch movies and enjoy stories, there's always an uncertain relationship between the story and real life.

Is the story trying change the way we behave?

Are stories written based on how we wish we could behave?

Many people see certain ideas in certain movies, and get upset because of the not so secret "agenda" of the movie makers.

But here's the thing.

Stories have been told since before recorded history.

Even old myths and biblical stories were once ONLY in the "oral tradition."

Meaning they were word of mouth stories LONG before anybody ever wrote them down.

And there are surprising similarities between stories from thousands of years ago, and stories today.

Even blockbuster movies.

This should be a clue.

A clue WHY we love these types of movies and stories so much.

That just MAYBE, they aren't only for entertainment.

That MAYBE, they are supposed to motivate us.

Inspire us.

Get us to get out there and stop wasting our lives.

To wake up, and start to take responsibility.

To BE the hero of our own lives.

How do you BE the hero?

Consider that your mission.

To find your own destiny.

Identify the bad guys, and conquer them.

Not just the ones OUT THERE, but the ones IN HERE.

The demons within, and the demons without.
