Calg here! Been a long time, just like the pun reference to the song lol! Just feeling grateful and inspired after a encouragement from fellow bros that randomly reached out to check in. God knows I needed it......Anyway I thought I would put this out there and see if there are any thoughts.
I was writing and words and comparisons were just pouring out of me,...I wrote about the thought of being a..."Man Island" Like the expression , "No man is an Island." Then I thought about being in a Man Cave on a deserted Island. BAM then I thought CAST AWAY! Like if you are a Man Island in your Man Cave,....you ultimately realize you are.... Cast Away.....and you are doing it to yourself because you are denying yourself the love and support you need to deal with everything that was done to and with you.
Then I thought you know I always liked and related to that movie it has a LOT of symbolism's that relate to our journey, Tom Hanks found himself in a circumstance that was not his fault, completely isolated in a man cave, granted in that state he did learn valuable survivor skills, but he ultimately realized he was a lonely boy with all these problems that he could have just shelved and just lived in denial in his happy place on the tropical island and exist all alone, but he risked everything and a great deal of struggle and hardship, risk, to break through the barriers, weather the storms, all with the ultimate goal of reclaiming his life back! WOW No wonder that seemingly BORING redundant movie was such a Huge HIT, it's just so symbolic of our dream struggle victory.
What do you think about any symbolism's? Details that relate that I am overlooking?
"Him....who is healing all your maladies. Who is reclaiming your life from the very pit" Ps 103:3-4
