Review of The Shining

I am taking a class in the cinema.  My angel guide is leading the way.  Tonight I watched "The Shining."  If one looks past the terror effects, there are some important messages about the living and the dead in this movie.  I communicate with the dead.  I don't picture people with half decayed bodies looking abhorrent.  I picture them as they were when they were alive.  I don't perceive the spirits that I interact with as evil.  Some are, though.  I found the movie interesting as it portrayed the dead as being manipulative of the living and projecting their prejudices.  (The word "nigger" is used in the film.)  This was used in such an instance where the dead wanted Jack to carry out certain tasks.  I always try to picture humanity as evolving past misconceptions and hatreds.  Perhaps this perception is wrong.  Maybe we are all of the sames spirits of the past wrestling and exacting Karma.

The hotel can be thought of a microcosm of the world.  Perhaps many alive now who believe themselves to espouse certain values are in reality just echoing vibrations sent from the graves of others.  In my own little World War III when I want to figure something out I call on spirits from the past.  Often I find that I have vilified somebody...sometimes rightly so, sometimes not.

Interestingly The Shining refers to the ability to be telepathic.  So, we have living and the living who can communicate without speaking and we have the living and the dead communicating.  This was what was interesting about this movie.  The murder aspect was just a red herring.  It is too bad that the topic was framed in murder and evil.  There is nothing murderous or evil about telepathy or the skills of a medium.  I suppose it serves to make people afraid of those who have such skills, which would be the agenda of the government.  The government does not want people to have any power, including spiritual power.  The government is of course run by the rich white old man.
