Maybe we all have imaginary demons... that are just that, imaginary... :)

I just finished watching, “A Beautiful Mind”. The beauty of John F. Nash’s mind is breath taking!!
As I watched John’s life and struggle, I realised that just like Charles, Marcee and Parcher, John’s delusions, that he’s fighting all his life, we all too have our owns delusions. Let’s call them demons!! Winking smile
These demons come in the form of jealousy, feelings of inadequacy, lack of self-acceptance, fear, guilt, shame and many others. Their role, just like John’s delusions, seems to be to scare us and delude us that we are incapable of living beautiful lives.
And maybe success is only possible if we look them in the eye and tell them, “You are not real!!!”. And well, battle them…
We all have a beautiful mind that can help us live beautiful lives. A mind that can help us realize, “that it’s only in the mysterious equations of love, that any logical reasons can be found.”

Gaga over Lady Gaga…

I watched this 3 part interview of Lady Gaga’s. I must confess, before this, all I knew about her was her name, ‘coz I don’t really dig her kind of music.
Anyway, the current status of my feelings for the lady… she ROCKS!
Go ahead, take a look…
Part 1/3
These lines stood out…
  1. “Fame for me is not external it’s internal, so I’ve been famous for a long time”
  2. “I rise and I close…”
  3. “I don’t care what people think of ME, I care what they think of themselves”
  4. "Music is my life; the fame is inside of me; I am going to make a number one record with number one hits.' And it's not yet; it's a lie. You're saying a lie, over and over again. And then one day, the lie is true."
Part 2/3

Part 3/3
What really struck me is that she’s not a “freak”, as her hair, make up and attire make her look, but a rather evolved person with very clear thinking. And she’s only 23 years!!
I’m not sure I’m going to follow her music, but she certainly has me thinking she’s cool!!!
Hope to see her “make a number one record with number one hits”.
