The Wrath of the Lamb

Anatoly Solonitsyn (the Writer) – ‘Stalker’ by Andrei Tarkovsky


Keep awake, keep awake, artist, 
Do not give into sleep…
You are eternity’s hostage
And prisoner of time
~ Boris Pasternak


The film ‘Stalker’, made in 1979 by Andrei Tarkovsky, is an absolute wonder. As usual with Tarkovsky, every shot in it is unique and intrinsically harmonious. As usual with Tarkovsky, you will have your breath taken away. And you will be bored too. And puzzled. Searching for a meaning that will elude you. For his cinema is not about entertainment, plot, revelation, or resolution. His cinema is about poetry, beauty, and the search for bringing forth art’s ultimate purpose, which is the uncovering of the core and substance of our being. With ‘Stalker’, you will feel what it is to be locked in a maze. And as usual with Tarkovsky, amidst the shallow words are pearls. And amongst the mud and the stagnant waters is the eternal truth.

The Stalker is a simple man living with his wife and his little girl in an undetermined country. His job is to guide people who want to enter into a mysterious place called ‘the Zone’, protected by barbed wires and police forces. This is a green, lush, deserted land where stand some vestiges of settlements. Maybe this is the consequence of a fallen meteorite. We don’t know. There is a place, concealed in the Zone, where desires come true. But as one of the protagonists finds out, “it is not merely a desire but one’s most secret desire that is granted here. Here will come true that which reflects the essence of your nature. It is within you, it governs you, yet you are ignorant of it.” As a result, many people want to reach this place in the Zone called the ‘Room’, and they need guides to lead them to it. This time, the Stalker is on again for a new trip with two men called the ‘Writer’ and the ‘Professor’. 


A reflection on the qualities of Andrei Tarkovsky’s movie ‘Stalker’… (READ MORE…)



Desire, is
The source of creation.
All things manifest, exist
because of this.

However, when the one
who desires, sees the self as separate,
they move in ways, where this one
becomes, painfully desperate.

Misunderstood, innocently so.
Desire is not for the sake of completion.
It moves for the joy of being alive
-for the play of discovery
and true Self expression.

There are only two desires,
even though they are exactly the same.
First is to discover what you really are,
the second, is to express
this beauty discovered within.

The flower blooms,
not to impress the others.
It opens slowly, through sincerity;
to see what is inside, encouraged by
a love that is remembered.

Let desire point you inward, and
notice a beauty that asks to be seen.
Open to this truth in your heart
and let the Love -explode
through your being.
