I think that the closest I come to Nirvana here on earth is, besides the obvious, is good cultural experiences. I have been moved by exhibitions, individual pieces of art, concerts, books and movies. And I feel blessed when something worldly can move me to my core.
I remember watching the latest Joker movie back in 2019. I knew very little of it in advance and it really knocked me out of my shoes. Yesterday I watched “Where the Crawdads Sing”. I’d read the book so the plot was not a surprise (even if I didn’t remember much of the outcome until I saw it). It’s always a risk to watch a film based on a novel, but it was… fantastic. The cinematography – gorgeous. I think it will be up for a couple of Oscars nominations and wins.
So go watch it. Or something else that can move your core.
