Have you ever watched Hugo movie? A screenplay adapted from the novel ‘The Invention of Hugo Cabret’, that wins some Oscars from its beautiful and sophisticated cinematography.
I’m not intend to tell you about its cinematography, or its Oscar, or even its story. I just wanna try telling you the message that is implied from the movie. I call this ‘Hugo’s message.’ The message that I almost missed, till then my friend came up with a question “What is the message you think you’ve got from the movie?” I was just yawning to hear that question, trying hard to give an answer but I didn’t have any clue. Then he gave me that clue: Machine…Life is like a machine, a big giant machine.
Feeling hard to figure it out what the quote means? I did also. Until I watch again the movie, and find the answer…here from what Hugo told his fellow, Isabelle:
“Everything always have a purpose, just like machines. They do what they meant to do. If they lose their purposes, they may broken….and life is like a machine, a big giant machine. We are part of that giant machine. And I believe that I’m here for a specific purpose …”
I agree with what Hugo tells us in the movie, that everything is always have a purpose. In another word, we may say that everything is made for a reason, and so do we…as a human being.
Like the air that give us a breath, the sun that gives us a day, the moon that bring us a beautiful night, the river that deliver water for our life, or even the leaves that produce oxygen everyday. And so the machine do for us…they work for a specific purpose. The clock tinkling to tell us the time we are in; the wheels spinning to move something forward; the bell ringing to notice us an important thing…
And so do we…the most complicated-creature in this world; a human being. Each of us is born for a specific reason..and purpose. For whatever we are, and whatever we do, we always take a part – even the smallest one – of the entire moments happen in this world. We are made to be a help for each other. And just like a big machine, each of us is part of that machine, that have to work together, help each other…in order to make that machine work as they meant to.
There’s nothing happen as a coincidence. Everything happen for a reason. So you…yes you! You are not born as someone who is ignorable and unuseful. Don’t ever – for every single second that you live – to think like that. You are born for a specific reason… when you feel that your life is suck and you can’t hardly figure out what your role in this world is, as a person. Maybe, you simply haven’t found your own purpose. Your life purpose. So now try to ask yourself ‘What is my life purpose?”
And life is like a machine, a big giant machine.
Then, who has created that big giant machine?”
Yes, He is. Our Lord…^_^
There’s no such a coincidence…everything happen for His Reason:
“And with Him are the keys of the unseen; none knows them except Him. And He knows what is on the land and in the sea. Not a leaf falls but that He knows it. And no grain is there within the darknesses of the earth and no moist or dry [thing] but that it is [written] in a clear record.” (Al-An’am: 59)
Thanks Mr. Goose…for your question that made me think, and the insightful conversation this morning. 😉
