Potter, Pan, You, and Me!

It was a lazy afternoon, so I just decided to spend a while watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Well yes, I am a HP fan and can watch any of the films innumerable times.

As time passed, there was the introductory scene of Prof. Lupin and the Dementors in the train. Freaky one! I really am amazed at Rowling for the work she has done. So much detailing... So many intricacies... So many characters and their own stories.

Later then there was a much more intense scene about Lupin explaining what exactly dementors do while teaching Harry his Patronus charm. And as he does so, he asks Harry to think of his happiest moment... Now that is something that just made my train of thoughts take off!

I remember watching a Robin William film called the Hook. It was, I suppose, about Peter Pan. But I cant recollect it properly. What I do remember peculiarly about the film is the time when he learns to fly. There too, he is supposed to think of his happiest memory to be able to lift himself up in the air!

All these fairy tales, have this one thread in common. The most powerful thing within us, and outside is the emotion of love, of happiness... To do something remarkable, it is this feeling, this power within us that helps us achieve the feat. The same applies when we need to fight our gravest fears, or the most unpropitious elements (in Harry's case, the Dementors).

That honestly gets me to think then, is there anything that is fictitious? I myself am a believer of the occult. And though I rationalize with it as the power of our subconscious, the fact remains that it still continues to be mysterious. But even in this mystery, there is one thing that is evident--- the power of your inner self, your positive emotions, your happiest moments.

These help you to look into your future, to make the most unfavorable conditions work for you, cleanse and energize your chakras and auras, fight your greatest nightmares, and do things that seem impossible to your conscious mind!

It helps you do everything that you want to, and helps you restrain from every temptation that seem irresistible. That is the power that lies within you. Something that is so openly professed everywhere, everytime, but yet people have cold feet to accept it... Well it is always easier to laugh it out than to show the courage to try it out!

Nevermind, as my train took a halt and my daze quickly converted to my fancy towards the movie, I saw Harry fighting it out with the Dementors saving his godfather... All's well that ends well!!!

It would just be so much better if we could also fight the dementors within us with the power that rests within us! First step would just call for some acceptance, and then...well that will be a cake walk,since its only Happy memories after all!!!
