Robin Williams has died in art (a movie). Recently, he died in real life. More often than not, art imitates life. Was it vaguely prophetic or ironic in his case?
(PLEASE Note: I lean agnostic on nonscientific speculation. Your guess is as good as mine. This is just a mythological extrapolation of ideas borne out in one of Mr. Williams’ cinematic portrayals.)
In “WHAT DREAMS MAY COME” (1998), he left heaven to rescue his wife. His wife had plunged herself into hell. She was so distraught over the loss of her family that she committed suicide.
It was her mental state that sealed her fate. Upon death, Annie’s mind (soul) literally created a hellish world. A vicious cycle of gloom & doom – having been internal – became an external, altered reality.
How strange it is then, that a man, who lived to bring mirth to others, embraced death – only bringing misery for himself into whatever lies beyond.
How harrowing it might well be for such a dear man if, in fact, life imitates art.
If you can’t forgive yourself, if you can’t love yourself, then not even a God can or will change your mind. Thus, it grieves me that a great person should settle for so much less.
He attempted to win by losing his pain. Yet, as he so famously said in the aforementioned movie: “Sometimes when you win, you lose“.
A part of our hearts was lost with Robin Williams. He is loved & will be missed. If only he knew.
Don’t miss the opportunity to tell those whom you love that you do. Carpe Diem…Seize the moment! For it shan’t come again.
