Rebellious Youth: A Rough Diamond
Nezha's story may resonate with one and all, but it is the tale of every man as an individual. His Legend is our collective story, which epitomises the solitary path we all journey on as we race to seek and find where our souls truly belong.
Growing Up: Discovering his own identity;
Self-Sacrifice: His ultimate choice in the face of fated conflict;
Rebirth: A new lease of life – transformed by love and loneliness.
Everything is enveloped in love. It is love that allows one to grow, even when one stumbles and falls. Love is support from family and what helps sustain us during times when one must endure alone. When one has mastered loneliness as an inextricable quality, so does one's love expand and become a ceaseless pursuit.
Embrace Solitude, and in turn, be Embraced by Love.
