Absolute Vulnerability






Even heroes have "vulnerable moments".

Despite the superpowers and psychic abilities they have... they are human too.


Adrian Tranquili a sculptor shows us the scarcely seen, vulnerable side of our Super Heroes.

Although the outside battles are equally riveting... it is the inner battle that matters most. In Spiderman 3: "The Battle Lies Within".

Everyone can relate to them because it is not just the super heroes who goes through this.

And according to Socrates of the movie "Peaceful Warrior" based on the best selling book The Way of A Peaceful Warrior:

A warrior is not about perfection or victory or invulnerability. He's about ABSOLUTE VULNERABILITY.

And in those moments.... we allow ourselves to be human.....



So... if you are going through something..... always mind the battles within.... because they are the ones that matters most. As within, so without. Life is a mirror. It reflects back your innermost thoughts, feelings and desires.

and always remember folks, a warrior is about ABSOLUTE VULNERABILITY.. and we all have those moments.

ang gaganda nung mga sculptures.it was the visual interpretation na battles are sometimes lost inside of us.even heroes bleed.a good way of telling us na it isn't so bad to feel down minsan.

magandang araw!!!!

We feel most vulnerable when we are confronted with problems we thought greater than our capacity to solve them.

Sometimes there are problems we simply can not overcome. The only way to handle them is to move on and get over them.

Very emotive talaga yung sculptures. :) And nakuha yung pagiging vulnerable, not only of heroes but even of ordinary humans. Seeing these sculptures make you wanna say, awww. Haha.
