The recently released movie ‘Snow White & The Huntsman’ and ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’ are a good depiction of the inner spiritual journey.
The original Grimm’s Fairy Tales told of the Dark versus the Light, sugared up with ginger bread houses and maidens with sweet singing voices.
Nowadays, we see on our screens, warriors who have strong hearts and the power to combat the Dark, without reserve. I’ve always said that the spiritual journey is a battle of resonances, you have to fight for your soul.
One has to stand up and face the front no matter how many times the ghouls come at you and you must do this with good measures of softness and strengh – courage. The characters Snow White and Hansel and Gretel in these movies, do precisely this.
I have mentioned that the dark is often cleverly disguised and everything is backwards. You have to stay on your toes and watch for con tricks.
The children Hansel & Gretel are lured by the demon witch using a house made of candy and later when they are grown up, the lead witch is strikingly seductive…. until she morphs into her true, vicious form.
And we see Snow White’s step mother (played by the beautiful Charliz Theron) change into a black fractal queen who leaves behind a haze of dark dust, as she grows ever more cold and cruel in her attempt to stay young.
We are all fighting for our freedom, against the enslavement of the dark. The warrior’s light comes from the beauty of the forest glade and the love of family and friends. Try to be kind. Always.
