Generosity is the miracle
In a jungle-like world, a miracle is less about the multiplication of bread and fish and more about a kind of generosity that transcends our ego.
Rurouni Kenshin (Samurai X) captures the theme “survival of the fittest” especially through the redemption journey of Kenshin and the cruel philosophy of Shishio. Everything Everywhere All at Once proposes that “being kind” is a great default in an absurd and chaotic multiverse.
We cannot be blamed if our priority is to protect ourselves first because we have to survive. But the transformative miracle is when we internalize that kindness and generosity are greater than ourselves.
Sharing food may be finite, but sharing a piece of ourselves is like a gift that keeps on giving – with enough leftovers to uplift those who need our help.
