I was watching “Revolver” the other night on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend that you check it out.
It’s a great metaphor for getting rid of the ego and reaching your full potential.
The overall message is that the ego pretends to protect us, but in reality it’s severely limiting us.
Like you see somebody you want to talk to, and you’re pretty sure if you could simply walk over there, and say what you wanted to say, there’s a good chance you’d create a pretty good relationship. Business, social, romantic, whatever.
But the ego rears its ugly head, and makes us afraid. Of course, the ego tells us that its protecting us from harm. Keeping us out of trouble.
The climax scene in the movie is when the main character (played by Jason Statham) finally confronts his ego, in an elevator (which happens to be his worst fear).
Before he walks into the elevator, he hears the voice of his “spirit guide,” tell him:
“Whatever you fear most, that’s where you’ll find him.”
The basic message of the movie (through it’s convoluted, mobster storytelling elements) is that if you face your biggest fear, your ego will vanish. The jig, so to speak, will be up.
What was interesting about the movie was the main character kept flashing back to when he was in prison. In solitary confinement. He kept talking about what he learned from his “neighbors.”
Even though he couldn’t communicate with them directly, they spoke through code, written in science books and chess strategy books.
Through those small filters, the secrets of human nature, in the art of the con, were revealed.
See, when humans want to communicate something really important, we’ll find a way.
Facial expressions, body language, chess books, you name it, we’ll use it.
What important messages do you have?
What crucial ideas do you want to communicate to others?
