The Hardest Question.

fouri 359 HardestQuestion

Once you know of its existence, I think it’s impossible not to ask yourself the question posed by writer and director Hirokazu Kore-eda. And it’s perhaps the hardest question you’ve ever asked yourself, or at least it was/is for me. So please, only read on if you want to be properly tested.

In his 1998 film, “After Life”, Kore-eda creates a “service station/motel” midway between life and death.

Every Monday, a group of recently deceased people arrive and are asked to choose a single moment from their lives which will be recreated, filmed and then given to them for eternity. The rest of their life will be erased and forgotten.

Which memory would you choose?

I accept that, for most of us, it’s very hard to answer.

Instead, or in addition, you might like to answer it for several different dimensions of your life including:

  • Family
  • Friends
  • Work
  • Community
  • Self
  • (Feel free to add as many others as you wish)

Of course another option is to imagine the memory you would like to keep forever and then set about creating it. Indeed, I suggest that this is an excellent exercise to do for all dimensions of your life and once accomplished, to then set about selecting just one for keeps.
