If you have read the Harry Potter books or seen the movies, you should be familiar with the Seeker and the Golden Snitch.
These are key components in the game of Quidditch.
The Seeker is a position on a team of seven. The Golden Snitch is a small golden ball with wings.
It is the Seeker’s job to seek, find, and catch the Golden Snitch. If caught, the team is awarded 150 points and the game immediately ends.
Harry Potter is chosen to be a Seeker for his team.
The following is a short video that explains the entire game of Quidditch. Please watch it as it will help you understand my analogy.
The Seeker is the most important position in the game of Quidditch. It is usually someone who is small with a fast broom. The Seeker also needs to be aware of the actual game play knowing the current score and keeping watch of the Bludgers, which can knock you off your broom. This will distract your from finding and catching the Golden Snitch.
It’s also interesting to note that the Snitch is golden, which makes it difficult to see. It doesn’t usually appear right in front of your face, but you’re required to seek it out. If in the rare instance it does appear in front of you or in close proximity, doesn’t always mean that we’ll see it right away. If we do, we still have to reach out and grab it.
A couple of days ago on the “Think and Grow Rich” morning mindset call that I participate in every week day, the host talked a lot about how there’s bits of truth in all things…even in movies. Some have great messages that are full of truth that we recognize to be good and right…
…and if applied can improve our mind, give us greater knowledge, and increase our faith.
As he was talking I couldn’t help but think about the Seeker and the Golden Snitch in the Harry Potter movies.
Each one of us is a Seeker. If we seek, we will find. If we knock, the door will be opened…and we are seeking after the Golden Snitch, which are little golden nuggets of truth that we find and catch in the game of life.
With each little capture of each truth, we are that much closer to winning the game!
However, we need to watch out for the Bludgers…those little distractions that are meant to deter us from finding truth and take us off course.
“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.” -Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642)
