Double Take

'When you've seen beyond yourself, then you may find peace of mind is waiting there. And the time will come when you see we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you – George Harrison

Rowena J Ronson sees the movie Rush (2013) and wonders where you will draw your line… 

imagesRon Howard’s new film Rush (2013) reminded me of how I so do not live for the adrenaline rush.

In fact, just watching Daniel Brühl and Chris Hemsworth play Niki Lauda and James Hunt preparing for their Formula 1 races and revving up themselves and their cars, made my own psychological foot weigh heavy on my imaginary brakes.

I could feel my line, and I was uncomfortable with their crossing it. I didn’t feel sick, like Hunt did pre-race, I just felt a great big ‘no’ inside me, holding me back from self-destruction.

But with great admiration, I watched how these two superstar sportsmen inspired each other to achieve the very best they could, and in exchange, in time, receive each other’s ultimate respect.

Rush will take you on a very real and human trip and will put you in the “no limits” driving seat, with daring beyond fear, and a focus to be truly admired.

And it might even give you a clearer awareness of your own desire for “the Rush”, how you feel about risk-taking – and perhaps also where you draw your line.
