outing-Charlie St. Cloud

Oct 8; (Fri) 12.05a.m.

Had lunch yesterday (Thursday) at Noodle Station. The food wasn't that bad. Movie watched; entitled Charlie St. Cloud. The movie had some elements of truth. What struck me most was the relationship between the older brother [Charlie St. Cloud] and the younger [Sam St. Cloud].

The Love. The Brotherhood. The Dedication. The Faithfulness. The Affection. The Care.

The unwillingness to let go is also something that is related to us in life. In the movie, Charlie was given a second chance by God to live his life after an accident. Sam on the other hand died in the crash. Unwilling to move on, Charlie hold on to his dead brother for 5 years. Only after letting go, his younger brother 'saw the light' and entered Heaven, a 'place/state' of perpetual joy.

This point is important to us. Souls do get stuck in this world after death. And the main reason is sometimes due to 'unfinished business' or in other words, souls are tied down by their unwillingness to let go of something. The soul is attached to something (material) or someone. In the Bible, Christ gave us an example to live by. Jesus told Mary of Magdalene to not hold on to Him after the resurrection, instead, go back to the community.

The moral of the story?
Do not get attached to things that do not last. :)

i guess the key word is to let go of things that brings us away from God, and our true selves.
