The Ugly Boy and the Beautiful Girl

My papa was a preacher and he often repeated the line from Ecclesiastes, ‘There is nothing new under the Sun,’ and I’m slowly becoming a believer, long after his death, and much longer after those words were written. Sure, today I can talk with someone halfway around the world using a slim wireless phone in my shirt pocket that my father could have never imagined, but with people, the saying rings very true.

The emotions, the passions, the anger, the love, the joy . . . It’s always been a part of us, and the lessons we learn tomorrow have already been learned by folk who lived long before we were born. That is why a movie made a hundred years ago is as fresh today as it was when it was first released.

I meditate for 55 minutes every morning, thinking about yesterday, today and tomorrow. I ask to be taught the things I need to learn to succeed today, and I ask to be shown which path to take when confronted with many options.

For me, the biggest part of calling a day ‘successful’ is measured by how many people I have been able to meet and successfully make their day a bit better because of that meeting. One of the major ‘oh wow’ moments in my personal education was when I met Ugly Victor (The Law of Contact – Ugly Victor —»).

I imagined that I had learned something that no one ever conceived of before. In hindsight, how conceited I was! Today, after watching this story from 1952, I discover that the ideas that I finally learned have probably been around for as long as man has trod the earth.

If I hadn’t learned the lesson of Ugly Victor during my morning meditation, I could have learned it from this movie. Ugly is a man-made word with a definition that is never true. It has little to do with love, joy, peace and prosperity, and much to do with a mind that is lacking a real understanding of the human soul.

Leonard Nimoy, in his first major movie role, is an ugly Italian boy who is very angry at the beautiful world around him. He will become an accomplished, angry boxer beating the very life out of his opponents with pretty faces, trying to make them as ugly as he is.

Fortunately, he will eventually learn the real meaning of ugly and beautiful, if he can survive the crime syndicate who is using his anger and his fists for their own prosperity. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
