LOST – A Perspective

Did you figure out what TV's LOST was all about? Well this article can give you a part of the answer.
I just finished watching the final episode of LOST. In its final scenes, Jack’s father tells him, “Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them, and they needed you.”
How profound and relevant to today is this statement. We are learning as a people, a culture, a country, and a world that we need each other. We’re learning that by sharing our paths in life, we are making the travel easier by finding along the way that:
- Successes are more satisfying
- Strength is found in numbers
- Answers are more easily found
- Goals are reached faster
- Obstacles are overcome more quickly
Looking back, I now see all of these points were in LOST. And I understand now that the show was about bringing together souls which had been solitary, apart, not having the comfort of others with them. It was about bringing together “lost” individuals to form a tribe and triumphantly winning over the darkness which threatened each of them in a different way in their own lives.
How wonderful it was to see their union creating a “heaven” for them through their commitment and love for one another.
How wonderful will it be to see our love and commitment to our fellow human beings grow and change this world for the better over the next coming years. I, for one, hope to see it in my lifetime and finally catch more than a glimpse of “Heaven” here on earth.
