The lesson from X-Men : Days of Future Past

This time, I wanna share about the parts from X-Men : Days of Future Past movie that impress me so much.


The most memorable part for me is when the Young Charles met the old him.

Young Charles: So this what becomes of us. Eric was right. Humanity does this to us.
Old Charles: Not if we show them a better past.
Young Charles: You still believe?
Old Charles: Just because someone stumbles and loses their way, it doesn’t mean they’re lost forever. Sometimes we need a little help.
Young Charles: I’m not the man I was. I open my mind and it almost overwhelms me.
Old Charles: You’re afraid, and Cerebro knows it.
Young Charles: In all those voices…so much pain.
Old Charles: It’s not their pain you’re afraid of — it’s yours. And frightening as it can be their pain will make you stronger if you allow yourself to feel it. Embrace it. It will make you more powerful than you ever imagined. It’s the greatest gift we have that can bear pain without breaking, and it’s born from the most human power: Hope. Please Charles, we need you to hope again.

I absolutely agree with the Old Charles’s statements. There was a time when we lost, we didn’t know what to did, even we thought there was no things in our life that worth enough for us fighting. And it’s true that sometimes, no, most of our times we wanted to hide, we wanted to flee from our pain, we didn’t dare facing our problems and reality. But we couldn’t flee forever. Wherever we went, wherever we hide, the same problems would always find us, and there was no way fleeing from them except we faced them and overpowered them. Of course we would find hardship, pain and struggle, but we couldn’t go nowhere until we overpower our fear, our pain and ourselves. The winner isn’t him who flee from his enemies, but it’s him who fight his enemies and overpowering them.

And the second part that I think it’s wonderful when Beast, Wolverine and Charles discussed about the future.

Hank McCoy: There’s a theory in quantum physics that time is immutable. It’s like a river — you can throw a pebble in and create a ripple, but the current always corrects itself. No matter what you do the river just keeps flowing in the same direction.
Wolverine: What are you trying to say?
Beast: What I’m saying is, what if the war is inevitable? What if she’s meant to kill Trask? What if this is simply who she is?
Charles Xavier: Just because someone stumbles and loses their way it doesn’t mean they’re lost forever. No, I don’t believe that theory Hank, and I can not believe that is who she is. Ready the plane. We’re going to Washington.

I believe that all of us have our own way of live, but it doesn’t mean we had already decided to take that part. I believe that there is God who designs our life but I believe too when He gives us freewill. God doesn’t create us to be a doll or a robot that always follow Him and keep doing what He want even it is not what we want. Maybe there are some people who accuse God for what happened to them. But I think it is because they don’t have enough guts to face their life so they hide themselves and use God as their selfish justification.

I believe whatever happened to us is caused by ourselves. God has already put our way but it’s depended to us whether we chose to follow it or not, and whatever our choice it’s still under His design.

When one of us lost him way and went to the wrong place, maybe there were some people who judged them who had lost, but I believe that there always chances to turn out. We did have our chance, because God let us. God still in His patience waited for us to come back, I thought that God still put His hope for us. When it was happened, why we judged them who had lost. But indeed, once again, it was depended to us whether we would take the chance and turned out or we would continue our way.

Hope, I think it is that the creator of the movie want to share with us. Hope for a better future, hope that we can change our future, that our future is in our own hands. Hope that we will choose the right path, even maybe right now we seems lose our path. Don’t lose your hope. Even the darkest night will end and the sun always rises.
