THE BAMBI REVELATIONS
Tiffany came over last night; she brought the movie Bambi. I had to dig my VCR out of the closest. Luckily, I still had my VCR shovel.
Ever since the Bambi movie was left in her VCR at work, we both knew this was the next “piece” of the “deer puzzle.” She teaches pre-school at a church and some of the kids must’ve been watching it the day before (Sunday). She had now been brought into my crazy-insane world of “following coincidences,” and had started being “stalked by deer.” The most notable deer-stalking occurred when the deer was standing in her driveway. This happened just a few hours after I texted her to say: “Watch out for deer and rabbits today.”
I was excited to watch Bambi, to see what type of spiritual insight it would offer. I read the back of the case and found the outline to be in alignment with typical spiritual concepts. I vaguely remember watching Bambi as a kid, but didn’t remember anything about the movie.
One of the main things I took away from the film was the word “twitterpated.” The wise old owl is explaining the strange “spell” that has taken over the minds of certain animals in the forest. He says it happens to everybody. Bambi and the other animals swear they’ll never be “twitterpated.”
Dictionary.com defines twitterpated as: confused by affection or infatuation.
Bambi eventually falls victim to this magic “love spell,” and starts a family of his own. I’m wondering if I’m currently under the intoxicating influence of “twitterpation.” Like Bambi—the Prince of the Forest—I’ve always held strong to the idea that I’d be a “forest-bachelor” for as long as possible.
Am I currently “confused by affection or infatuation,” in regards to the strange connection between Tiffany and myself? Or is Bambi, the deer “Prince of the Forest” about to settle down and create a family of his own?
I guess you’ll have to stay tuned …
The other insight I extracted from the movie had to do with man’s relationship to nature. I believe this is what I’m supposed to project to the masses, in regards to all this “deer stalking” in my life. Yes, the “Bambi—Prince of the Forest—becomes twitterpated and settles down” revelation is something I have to consider on a personal level. However, as with most coincidences, there’s always a message can be used for the “greater good.”
So let’s cover the “man’s relationship to nature” aspect of the film. In the film, the deer’s biggest “enemy” is man. Whenever “man” enters the picture, they animals try to run deeper into the forest. In fact, Bambi’s mother is killed by “man.” As a young deer, Bambi and his mother run to avoid the shotgun blasts of man. Bambi survives the attack; his mom doesn’t.
I began to consider this aspect of man versus nature.
