"If there were no real propensity to unite, even at a prodigiously rudimentary level, indeed, in the molecule itself, it would be physically impossible for love to appear higher up in the human form" Teilhard de Chardin
Seldom have I seen a television series as brilliantly accomplished as HBO's True Detective. It seemed that Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson inspired each other to new heights of character development. Essentially this series was about the fall and redemption of two morally fallen detectives who both reconnected to the love that was deepest within themselves in the final episode ~ after almost being killed ~ both saving each other while bonding with each other at a soul level in the process: Allen L Roland
I have surrendered to the paralyzing weight of fear (and apparent death) twice ~ once as a Navy fighter pilot apparently stalling out after a night cat shot and later in life when everything I cherished was violently taken away and there was nowhere to turn. Both times I found a deep source of direction and strength within myself as well as a subtle but profound sense that my life was being divinely guided as long as I remained in heartfelt service.
We all have angels in our life and we must continually be grateful for their being and presence. Marty and Rust found one in each other ~ thus in the end, true detectives became true friends.
Finally, in this world of constant crisis, we have a reminder that we are part of something vast and magical that Carl Sagan introduced us to with his 1980's Cosmos series. Neil deGrasse Tyson channels the spirit of Sagan with his Cosmos: a spacetime Odyssey on March 9th and reinforces Sagan's observation that we are still the way for the cosmos to know itself: Allen L Roland
Carl Sagan's Cosmos: A
Personal Journey aired on PBS in 1980, it went on to win an
Emmy Award and become that network’s most-watched series, by more than 700
million people worldwide. Not only did it capture the majesty of the universe
and the possibility of humankind’s potential, it also ~ thanks to the charisma
of its host, the late astrophysicist Carl Sagan ~ transformed the way the public regarded
