Dogma

Posted by alexandra_k on December 4, 2004, at 19:25:25

I watched "Dogma" again last night. While it might be considered a bit hostile to the notion of established religion it is about faith. About how faith is not a belief (or at least how and why it shouldn't be)- rather it is an idea.

I am an Alanis Morrisette fan, so... But I think that it is nice, and much in line with her way of thinking about spirituality.

"Thank U"

how bout getting off these antibiotics
how bout stopping eating when I'm full up
how bout them transparent dangling carrots
how bout that ever elusive kudo

thank you india
thank you terror
thank you disillusionment
thank you frailty
thank you consequence
thank you thank you silence

how bout me not blaming you for everything
how bout me enjoying the moment for once
how bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
how bout grieving it all one at a time

thank you india
thank you terror
thank you disillusionment
thank you frailty
thank you consequence
thank you thank you silence

the moment I let go of it was the moment
I got more than I could handle
the moment I jumped off of it
was the moment I touched down

how bout no longer being masochistic
how bout remembering your divinity
how bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
how bout not equating death with stopping

thank you india
thank you providence
thank you disillusionment
thank you nothingness
thank you clarity
thank you thank you silence

"Dogma" is a great movie! Since I am rather religion and bible stories-naive, I actually learned stuff in it, too! (How sad is that?)

Thanks for posting about it.

I love that movie too. I also LOVE Alanis M. I guess that i really get into movies that revolve around religion but that are not made with an agenda. some other ones i really love too are "Stigmata" and "Bless the Child". they are sort of creepy, but i love them.

i find Alanis M. to be such a source of inspiration--spiritually and artistically. Esp her newest CDs.
