Spirited Away: An Interpretation of Its Symbolism

Originally posted on Circle of Meditation:

In the last years I’ve hardly watched a handful of films, but one recommended by a five-year-old girl I’ve watched several times. It’s an extraordinary movie, full of symbolism. I’m talking about Spirited Away, an animated movie from the Japanese director Miyazaki. If you haven’t watched it yet, make a note in your agenda. It doesn’t disappoint and speaks to both children and adults.

The movie follows the adventures of a girl in a village inhabited by ghosts, and her attempts to rescue her parents, turned into pigs by the machiavellian old woman Yubaba. But, beneath apparently a children’s story, runs a deeper story of the most important of adventures: The conquering of ourselves.

The ghost town represents ordinary life. Old Yubaba represents our ego, as she lives on top of a bath house that represents our body and mind. She is constantly satisfying every whim of a huge baby…

You gotta spend your sunlight wisely

Seawater soaks your hair,
as you stay the night in the salty air.
The spray off the rocks stings your face,
as you’re standing there trying to freeze time and space.

You gotta spend your sunlight
You gotta spend your sunlight wisely

Because who wants to lose his life
To deadlines and wasted days slaving away?

Asleep in the warmth of the fire,
as the night escapes into the day.
You’re not sure which next step to take
and you wish the waves would lead the way.

Keep your eyes (You’ve got to spend your sunlight)
On the prize (You’ve got to spend your sunlight)
Don’t lose sight (You’ve got to spend your sunlight)
of this chosen life (You’ve got to spend your sunlight)
You’ve got to spend your sunlight wisely

Because who wants to lose his life
To deadlines and wasted days slaving away?
My tongue is bleeding from biting like hell.
Softspoken and fleeting no longer serves me well.

靜寂清澄 守之不動

  1. 希望众生得离苦,不为自己得安乐
  2. 坦白说有时候做慈济不欢喜,那时境界来考验,但是你要转啊。
  3. 行善有余,智慧不足,就是什么意思呢?我们天天行善,天天办活动,天天去募款。然后,都不闻经,都不听法,也不行经,也不法入心。
  4. 为什么在你可以,有时间的时候不去做,而是选择性的,因为你一选择,这就是执著,就是分别心,那妄想就出来。
  5. 知道了知,意识就出来, 一起分别,必有碍正,如有碍正就有取舍,如有取舍必定造业
  6. 受戒,护心

 

再续。

角色:過客

或許你還會哼著 幾年前的一首歌
片段動人的歌詞 依舊記得
也許你還沒忘了 最應該忘記的人
緣份總讓幸福變得曲折

生命有幾個過客 會帶走你的天真
愛過幾個錯的人 才能夠完整你的人生

你的寂寞在唱歌
是否曾偷偷想起不敢想的人
你的快樂不快樂
勉強的笑容看得出來你累了
情歌動人也傷人
聽到心碎成幾片 還是捨不得
我不是你愛的人
還是願意為了你的寂寞唱歌

我的心不疼不疼
心甘情願在你的寂寞裡受困
有個愛著你的人
遠在眼前只為你的寂寞唱歌
