POSSIBLE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERCEPTION TO THE STORY OF “THE WIZARD OF OZ”
This one of those things that came to me out of nowhere, completely unexpected, and have no idea what caused it to pop up! Whatever the reason, I began seeing a very legitimate and rational psychological application that my interpretation of the story seems to fit.
IT’S BEEN MANY YEARS SINCE I’VE WATCHED IT….. EVEN STILL, I’M PRETTY SURE THIS IS HOW THE STORY GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS-****READ MY UPDATE I PUT IN THE COMMENTS**** I WANT TO KEEP MY ORIGINAL POST UNEDITED… ANYTHING I’M GOING TO ADD AFTER WILL BE IN COMMENTS SO I CAN KEEP MY ORIGINAL UNEDITED VERSION
AFTER SHE LOOSES CONSCIOUSNESS! AFTER THE TORNADO
Dorothy, is following the yellow brick road leading to the Wizard of Oz in Emerald City…. Along the way she comes across a Lion, Scarecrow, and the Tin Man…
These characters (INSIDE HER MIND) all were missing something! Courage, a Brain, and a heart…… da da da da dah…..
-I’m not even going to get into the wicked witch (neighbor toto bit before this unconsciousness), or the relevance of any other characters (right now) ! lol
PUT TOGETHER ALL THE “TRAITS” OR “NEEDS” OF HER “UNCONSCIOUS””FRIENDS” AS SHE FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD…. JUST THINK ABOUT THESE TRAITS/QUALITIES BEING APPLIED TO AN INDIVIDUAL—- IT’S LIKE THIS STORY WAS A DEPICTION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, OR AWARENESS. LOL ——
(THE ROAD LED TO THE WIZARD, AND IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, THE WIZARD WAS ACTUALLY NOT EVEN A WIZARD AT ALL! -THANKS TOTO!- HE DIDN’T GIVE THEM ANYTHING EXCEPT FOR RECOGNITION THAT THEY ALREADY ATTAINED WHATEVER IT WAS ON THIER OWN DURING THIS JOURNEY….) NO? YES?
RIGHT AFTER THAT, SHE JUST WANTS TO CLICK HER HEELS TO “GO HOME” TOO MUCH FOR HER TO HANDLE I GUESS….
MAYBE, SHE COULDN’T HANDLE BEING IN A LOGICAL AND MENTAL STATE OF COMPLETENESS – BECAUSE SHE REALLY JUST WANTED TO GO HOME! WHERE EVERYTHING WAS “NORMAL” AGAIN LOL
FOLLOWED THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD ALL THE WAY TO THE ANSWERS, AND THE GREAT OZ!-
THAN RIGHT BACK TO -“THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME”
— THIS SEEMS TO STILL BE A COMMON BEHAVIOR FOR PEOPLE….. PUTTING IN SO MUCH EFFORT TO FIND AN ANSWER TO SOMETHING THEY MOST LIKLEY WON’T BE ABLE TO ACCEPT, THAN TURN/RUN AWAY FROM IT SO THEY CAN RETURN TO “NORMALITY” … BUT AT LEAST THEY KNOW THE ANSWER LOL
