Have you seen the movie “HER”? If you have; you know who Sam is. If you have not, Sam (Scarlett Johansson) is an OS (Operating System) that Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) finds himself in love with. As Sam is learning, at a rather rapid pace, how to be ‘human’, she comments throughout the movie about what this is like for her. The observations she makes, and her desire to be what she intuitively craves, is truly fascinating.
A few of her realizations include: “I don’t want to be as complicated as all these people” , and “I felt proud to have my own feelings”. How beautifully stated, and how bold to observe those around you, and then to chose your own path. She continues with “I trust myself, and I trust my feelings. I don’t need an intellectual reason. I’m not going to try and be anything I’m not”. May sound like a simple self-love statement, however I heard something far more powerful. Children do this. It starts at a very young age, when these little ones know what they like and what they do not. They are genuinely themselves. It is not until conditioning (from many different places) suggests and imposes upon them all of the “should” that we then experience for the remainder of our journeys.
To package this inspirational thinking up quite nicely, Amy (Amy Adams) declares “We are only here briefly. While I am, I want to allow myself…joy.”
