A man may believe in all the churches in the world, he may carry in his head all the sacred books ever written, he may baptize himself in all the rivers of the earth—still, if he has no perception of God, I would class him with the rankest atheist.
And a man may have never entered a church or a mosque, nor performed any ceremony, but if he feels God within himself and is thereby lifted above the vanities of the world, that man is a holy man, a saint, call him what you will.
- Ramakrishna Vivekananda

TWO WOLVES - A NATIVE AMERICAN CHEROKEE STORY
ONE EVENING A CHEROKEE ELDER TOLD HIS GRANDSON ABOUT A BATTLE  THAT GOES ON INSIDE HIS PEOPLE.
HE SAID, “MY SON, THE BATTLE IS BETWEEN TWO WOLVES INSIDE US ALL.”
"ONE IS EVIL - IT IS ANGER, ENVY, JEALOUSY, SORROW, REGRET, GREED, ARROGANCE, SELF-PITY, GUILT, RESENTMENT, INFERIORITY, LIES, FALSE PRIDE, SUPERIORITY AND EGO."
"THE OTHER IS GOOD- IT IS JOY, PEACE, LOVE, HOPE, SERENITY, HUMILITY, KINDNESS, BENEVOLENCE, EMPATHY, GENEROSITY, TRUTH, COMPASSION AND FAITH."
THE GRANDSON THOUGHT ABOUT IT FOR A MINUTE AND THEN ASKED HIS GRANDFATHER. “WHICH WOLF WINS?”
THE CHEROKEE ELEDER SIMPLY REPLIED, “THE ONE YOU FEED.”

LA GRANDE BELLEZZA

LA GRANDE BELLEZZA (THE GREAT BEAUTY) CO-WRITTEN AND PRODUCED BY PAOLO SORRENTINO IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FILMS I HAVE EVER SEEN. IT TAKES PLACE IN ROME AND IS A SOCIAL COMMENTARY AND HOMAGE TO THE BELOVED CITY. THE FILM IS VIEWED THROUGH THE EYES OF JOURNALIST JEB GAMBARDELLA WHO IS LIVING AMONG THE ROMAN ELITE BUT WHO IS DISSATISFIED BY THE SHALLOWNESS OF HIS LIFE. THE CINEMATOGRAPHY IS OUTSTANDING AND EMULATES THE ITALIAN PHILOSOPHY OF SIMPLISTIC BEAUTY. LA GRANDE BELLEZZA IS A FILM WHOSE MESSAGE IS EMULATED THROUGH ITS IMAGERY. IN OTHER WORDS, LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL WHEN SIMPLY LIVED WITH DISREGARD FOR STATUS. 

ALL STILLS WERE SOURCED FROM THE FILM.
