Last weekend I went to watch the movie, Maleficent. Of course I went to watch it because it’s a Disney Movie and I love Angelina Jolie but then I had my personal doubts and questions.
Pardon my vocabulary, my first yearning was to understand the meaning of maleficent.
What is maleficent?
Well, it means evil and harmful. Someone who wants to do evil things.
My second yearning was to understand why people become maleficent?
After watching the movie, I understood this one important fact, no one is maleficent! Yes, no one is. It’s the world that makes one maleficent!
In the thirst of power, money, revenge or love people become a certain way. A way which is not really enjoyed and appreciated by others.
The world around us is beautiful but the people are not all that lovely. Interaction with different type of people, experiences of life, betrayals and hardships teach us a lot. Some come out of them pure as a snow flake while others get blended in the colors of the cruel world and become maleficent.
Fantasy or reality, fairy tale or real life, maleficence is not inborn, it finds its way through some actions and scars left deep in the heart of the maleficent.
It’s truly said, hate the sin and not the sinner and definitely, “Don’t believe the fairy tale!”
