Most of you will recognize that epic scene from the Matrix. The one in which Neo is put in front of a choice. For me, leading the scene with a pretty inspirational quote:
” This is your last chance. After this there is no turning back. You take the blue pill: the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill: you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.”
– Morpheus, The Matrix
The pills are a clear symbolisation of choice. From my opinion a symbolisation that refers to every single choice you make in your life. Will you take the blue pill and live your life the way you know? Or will you take the red pill and deviate from the easy path? Who knows what you’ll be missing out on?
An easy choice? As I believe, every decision we make in life leads us to travel another path. Whether all paths lead to the same destiny or whether that’s in our own hands. I honestly couldn’t tell you.
What I do believe is that element of choice is yours in many situations. Even the disturbing ones which you’d never choose for yourself. It’s your choice how to handle it, how to act. Will you be a victim for the rest of your life? Or will you break the circle and take another path? The choice is yours..
I can truly recommend to take some time for yourself and watch “Mr. Nobody” if you didn’t do so already. It screenplays a story wherein the power of choices are perfectly translated to an unforgettable movie. But until that time: which pill do you take?
