1993’s Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray is the most important, spiritual film ever made.
Do you want to understand God? Karma? Letting go of control? Compassion for others? Being happy, present and living in the moment?
Watch Groundhog Day. It’s all there.
Bill Murray's character, TV weatherman, Phil Connors, is stuck in a karmic cycle of suffering. He relives the same day over and over again trying everything he can think of to escape. Finally, he gives up control, finds peace and thinks of others first. Only then does he attain enlightenment and moves forward with his life.
You still don't believe Groundhog Day is anything more than a mindless early 90's comedy? Good, cause I spent way too much time creating this series of Vines to illustrate my point. That's right, TV weatherman Phil Connors is going head to head with Vietnamese Buddhist Monk and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh to show you what's up. You can judge the winner.
NOTE: I am fully aware that a lot of these Vines are contrary to the quotes but real understanding is seeing both sides of the coin. And, honestly, they're just funnier.
