One of my favorite quotes from a great movie is this:
“Cobb: What is the most resilient parasite? A bacteria? A virus? An intenstinal worm?
Arthur: Uh, what Mr. Cobb is trying to…
Cobb: An idea. Resilient, highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to iradicate. An idea that is fully formed, fully understood. That sticks, right in there somewhere.”
Now read it again with this playing in the background to really get the full effect:
This dialogue has been playing in my head as recently an idea, a thought, has been rolling around my head for the past couple of weeks. I cannot get the thought out of my mind. The idea will mean big changes for my wife and I for better or worse.
You’re probably wondering what that idea is. Unfortunately, I feel that I cannot really talk about it too publicly right now. So why even post this? I don’t know. I just wanted to express in some fashion that a lot has been on my mind lately. We are doing a lot of thinking and praying about it and as things become more real I will surely post about it. But this thought really has consumed me lately. Thankfully, its not an idea that is going to cause me to lay my head down on a train track but it is causing me some inner turmoil.
And, if you haven’t ever seen Inception, GO WATCH IT NOW!
