Religion story: the darker themes behind Pixar’s Toy Story
A religion is a teaching tool to help you wake up, much like Buddhism, where the actually point is to let go of the religion once you’ve woken up to the understanding that you are God, and that everything around you is God. Because once you understand that you are God, you realize that there’s nothing left you have to believe in except yourself. That’s what’s missing from Buzz Lightyear’s story. He doesn’t realize his own purpose in life.
