I just love the underlying philosophy of Forrest Gump.
What I love about the movie is Forrest's instinctual connection with the law of attraction. He is acutely in tune with universal "vibrations" and and develops what I call the the "Okay! Philosophy." He knows exactly what his life cues are, and each one leads him to profound moments, both in history and in his own life. What the "world' sees as his greatest weakness, his lack of mental capacity, I see as the catalyst for the absence of ego, and the ego struggles that tend to get in the way of "normal" people's decision making process.
LOL, I have honestly coined the "Okay! Philosophy" based on Forrest Gump! If we should all be so lucky as to be unattached to things that cause us pain and harm....
