Love in Finding Nemo!

More on Love! Oops! I am still stuck with JK's quote on Love. Today as I was seeing " Finding Nemo" for 101th time, I was able to sense different types of love in the movie, beautiful depicted using different characters. The Negative aspect, like the Darla's Love for fish, a high intensity,lethal love. She loves fishes so much that she calls herself 'Piranha', a Amazon fish refered as Man eaters in old movies, without scientific evidence. Darla, inspite of having love for fishes, she is called the 'Fish Killer' in the movie, often the love when expressed with such high intensity, leaves the beloved in suffocation. And Marlin's Love , a high intensity, semi-lethal Love for Nemo, a type of Paranoid Love. Often we love like Marlin, the negative things around us or the negative memories of the past, the fear gets mixed up with love and the love loses its charm. The most pleasant form of love in the movie is the one of Dory's, least contaminated with the negativity around her, not infuenced by the negative thoughts of past,the fear (she 'suffers'? / 'enjoys' !! from Short Term Memory Loss). Now putting this in terms of JK! " Fear destroys love. You cannot have love - love cannot exist where fear is. So thinking has created fear. Right? Thinking about the future, thinking about the past.Thought is born of experience and knowledge, which are inseparable from time and the past. Time is the psychological enemy of man. Our action is based on knowledge and therefore time, so man is always a slave to the past. Thought is ever-limited and so we live in constant conflict and struggle. Love is: dying every day. "

On Love by Tagore

"The greedy man who is fond of his fish stew has no compunction in
cutting up the fish according to his need. But the man who loves
the fish wants to enjoy it in the water; and if that is
impossible he waits on the bank; and even if he comes back home
without a sight of it he has the consolation of knowing that the
fish is all right. Perfect gain is the best of all; but if that
is impossible, then the next best gain is perfect losing."
