Myth and Reality of Reel Life and Real Life
by Dr. Varanasi Ramabrahmam
Bookmark and Share
  In the movie appearing on the screen
We rejoice or feel sad with the characters
By viewing the illusion
Created by virtual forms
Taking myth to be reality
Reel life is experienced as real life;
When we are told that the same
Is happening in reacting to
The appearances on our mental screen
As thoughts, feelings, experiences, etc,
The mere unreal projections of our mind,
And the reality
That our actual identity is peace, bliss and silence,
We dismiss it as mere philosophy;
That is the power of myth over reality.

Comment Reel and real is a clever use of pun that brings out the similarity and the distinction between the two; and on to fantasy (reel) and identity (real) in our minds. A successful poem - well done!
