I was watching a movie called Nine days on Netflix.
I started over my subscription many times, to change the algorithm and to be able to see different movies.
Not only to have a relief of watching the genre of movies, but starting over in general feels like a relief to me.
So, I was watching this movie ‘Nine days’, about the selection process before souls make it to earth.
I don’t know if you can call it an intermezzo before coming here.
But as many application processes on earth, for finding a job, in that light it made sense to my mind.
However, a small disclaimer, I don’t think all souls go through that process.
As I was watching this movie, there were some remarks that stood out.
It was the most interesting to see that it is not just about that process of being selected or to endure the nine days in total.
As I am still watching the movie and I am halfway there. It is the first time I stopped a movie to finish watching it another time.
A part of me is very excited to see what is coming, since I am not the person that is making the decision of letting people come to earth.
I don’t know if that is an invitation or position I created for myself.
But as far as I have come now watching this movie, the interesting thing that has been said or at least something that I have understood reading between the lines.
It is about having an added factor on earth.
Not just the experience of feeling, having emotions, perhaps even dreaming or to understand what it is to live.
Like any job, you need to have something that is extra, or that is worthwhile.
Please let me be clear on this one, I am saying this in the highest light.
Not to make you scared or to say you have done anything wrong.
Because what I believe is there, a place that we don’t know.
This place before coming to earth, let’s call them nine days.
Since the irony is that before coming to earth, we have no recollection of what time and days really mean.
Of course I understand it is a trial period to perhaps start to get familiar with what that means.
In one of the assignments the selected souls are watching different tv screens, to see what is happening to the souls who were selected and were born human.
The souls who are in the process for nine days are allowed to make comments, write things down of what they see.
You can even call it a little diary.
It is that I was watching the screens of these humans that were already selected and I felt that I was watching things I perhaps can experience.
Playing the violin, drawing monsters.
Walking the beach, riding on a bike, holding hands with a lover.
I am a little romantic.
Also crying tears and feeling miserable. But I think I already experienced this.
Although, I can’t really remember when.
That fact is, I still have to finish this movie.
It is that I am thinking.
I see so many people on earth just doing whatever.
I am not judging, just a septactor of a show I am watching.
Perhaps something we all have a role in.
Just nobody knows what they are playing.
Although the process of nine days is not really connected with heaven.
But I believe there is a connection there with love.
I once saw a documentary also on Netflix about a dating service in India.
And the facilitator of this service told, that the matches were actually made in heaven.
I don’t really know why she said that, perhaps as a disclaimer that some matches don’t last.
For the simple fact that not all people believe in Heaven or can’t reach that destination.
Since, we don’t even know if that is a real place.
Of course I understand the point of view, that the matches are pre-made, but it would also take out a lot of fun perhaps.
I’d rather meet him in real life and be surprisingly invited to have a drink together.
Where we would sit a little bit in a corner, where there is enough light so we can see each other.
To be still visible enough for the staff of the bar, so we’d be pleased to be served our drink on time to have our conversation going.
This conversation, not specifically about the deeper meaning of life.
But in the dimmed light, I can see the movements of his hands, while he is trying to express what he wants to say and sometimes looks down, to find the words to impress me.
Of course, he already did.
But don’t tell him once you see him.
It is about taking the time to get to know each other, understanding what he is like.
To forget about time and see it is past 2 in the morning.
I don’t know if it would be a walk of shame or I would spend the night, but I guess it is the same feeling.
And once I am there, I will have to see how the story would unfold.
The same as the movie that I still need to finish.
Perhaps I am in this trial period of ‘nine days’ myself.
Of course the time of nine days is fiction, as that is a title that was made, not created.
It is giving me the time and space to perhaps prepare myself for what is coming.
It is not about coming to earth to have an experience.
But to understand what it is that I am going to do here.
The point I’d like to make is that I’d rather make a match here on earth.
