Metaphysical review of Braveheart (1995) by Jacklyn A. Lo
Wallace lived in the 13th-14th centuries in Scotland, a land oppressed by the tyrannical English King Edward I. Despite losing his entire family to English invaders, Wallace harbored no hatred in his heart, choosing instead the path of Light over Darkness.
Love, Peace, and Justice
His ideals, however, were challenged when English soldiers attempted to rape Murron, imprisoned her, and later publicly executed her. At this point, Wallace could no longer remain indifferent; Justice, another Value of Light, had to be served.
Thus, Wallace emerged as the leader of his clan, rallying them against English rule.
Isabella of France, , enamored by Wallace, pleaded with him to beg for the king’s mercy. He declined. She then offered him a magical potion to alleviate his impending suffering, which he also refused.
When given one last opportunity to plead for mercy, Wallace instead roared, “Freedom!” Even after being subjected to torturous execution, he remained steadfast.
Commitment to the Light
Freedom for Wallace was not just a word; it held profound significance. While we may never understand why he was subjected to such a severe spiritual test, his actions stand as a testament to his unwavering commitment to the Light.
Without freedom, love and hope become meaningless, and we forfeit our ability to create, to become Creators.
Braveheart is a must-see film for anyone captivated by tales that inspire and provoke deep spiritual reflection.
