The Power of Continuous
Iconic art film director Andrei Tarkovsky’s last movie, Offret, which is written and directed by him but unfortunately he passed away shortly after, opens and finishes with stunning Johann Sebastian Bach composition. While this, Matthäus-Passion “Erbarme Dich”, peace of heaven playing at the background, an old man and his grandson plants a dry wood into the edge of the pond, and they water that wood every day after. Old man says nature can not resist on their purpose, eventually that dry wood will come into leaf. He indicates that even a dry wood where planted not particularly fertile soil would bloom inevitably if and only if it will be watered every single day with sincere diligence and commitment. Power of continuous actions and commitment so effective that after some point the content of the action becomes trivial.
