Just came across this thread and had not read it before, it was lovely reading about all the amazing films that had inspired people. It is so amazing when you get that personal connection to a film, a song, a piece of music, a thought for the day anything that inspires you that creates a spark. To me these are reminders of my life, showing me the way, reminding me of what I always knew but in this life it is easy to forget. So i hope for everyone today that they find something to reconnect them to themselves again.

My own personal favourite, and not typically spiritual, is The Shawshank Redemption. His committment to his own belief in himself and what he knows to be true does not overwhelm him but truly inspires him to, quietly, steadily, gently move him forward, day by day, sometimes minute by minute. He uses skills learned in this life to blend with his true nature to help him cope with the injustice that he currently faces. I used to watch this when I was feeling tired or ready to 'give up' but now I only have to see the name and click I'm right back to where I need to be.

This one isn't easy viewing at times, and for some in the film it does not have the happy ending that people sometimes dream of, but on the whole it is my spark, my reminder of my truth.

Enjoy x
