Feel the wonders of the world as a child

Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Well, in the previous post where I said that I feel frustrated by how people can have such indifference to to wonders around the world.

I think, I may have solved a part of it.

Well, I think, I’m kinda old enough to say, people from my generation. Managed to experience the most magical moment in history.

Disney movies.

I think, those probably what opened my mind to all the magic in the world. The ideas that dared me to dream of the impossible. To make me dream of the beauty of what could be possible.

Okay, I shall backtrack a little. I’ve recently chanced upon this song. (After not hearing it for years). And I started searching for all the disney music/movies again.

So, thankfully, I came upon this comment.

Isn’t it true?

Think of all the Disney movies that we used to watch.

Snow White, Pinocchio, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, The Sword in the Stone, The Little Mermaid, Aladin, Pocahontas, Hercules, Mulan, Sinbad.

The list goes on and on. But you see. ALL, ALL of them has such magic behind them, along with a morale of the story. Something that we can learn from, as a kid.

Something that teaches us to imagine and dream.

I am proud to say that, I have probably watched all of the Disney movies as a kid, and I would rewatch them again and again.

What happened to all of that? Think about it. All the recent movies are,

Bolt, The Incredibles, Despicable me, Chicken Little.

You get the idea. I’m not saying that it has totally ran out of good movies. For example,

Toy Story

That definitely still retains it’s magic and something that we can learn from.

But the world is seems to be moving past that, think about all the brilliant Japanese classic animations.

Laputa: Castle in the sky, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Nausicaa of the valley of the wind.

Where have they gone? All the animes I’m watching are. Well, magical of course, but there isn’t anything to learn from that. All the reality of the world just crushing in, crimes, money, lust, drugs, depression, stress from work.

There’s none of that in the old films.

What I’m really saying is. We should, and must, put our future generation in more loving arms. I know they have to face the harsh reality sooner or later. But that doesn’t mean that we have to just smash their illusion of how wonderful life could be at such a young age!

It seems really sad to me. And I don’t know, maybe my friends haven’t watched all the Disney films before, maybe they don’t know how to appreciate the magic in life. Maybe they’ve forgotten.

Even though I feel like I can still appreciate the magic, but when I listen to the music, and see all these films again,

I felt like,

it gave me a new spark of life.

So I urge you, please, just spare sometime off your life. Go download it, rent it, buy it. Just one.

And relive your dreams as a child.
