We are One

E-motion Pictures

We are human and this means we feel emotion.  E-motion, energy in motion….  Is this all we are? Of course not, but this what makes us unique in this world.  When a person is immature emotions often get the better of them and as they grow they learn to harness this energy and direct its flow.  It is a tool for deepening appreciation and understanding of life itself.  Would you be afraid of a hammer or a pencil?  Of course not, they are simply tools for expression… for creating.  Emotions are also this … a tool for creating, expressing, and appreciating.  Even though emotions are only one aspect of our being we must learn to respect this aspect and indeed embrace this gift of being human.

With all this being said, there is a wonderful creation we have made to honor, practice, and appreciate the emotions of mankind, The Motion Picture!  Today it comes in many forms from home video & webcam to TV & Movies.  There is no greater tool for learning and appreciating emotion than this medium of TV & Movies.  And let us remember in the beginning they were called Motion Pictures for a very simple reason.  In fact they are E-Motion in Pictures.  So if a movie or television show does not bring out your emotions, I posit it does not deserve to be viewed and that it has failed its purpose.  When I watch a show I use two markers for success, one being that the show makes me laugh, and the other is I feel the need to cry.  The tears may be of joy, but if you are not crying then you are not connecting to your emotional drivetrain.  The key word here is feeling.  The shows you watch should make you feel and the deeper the better!

Now that you are connected to your inner feelings we can move on to the positive and negative of emotion.  Does it matter which type you are feeling?  Of course it does!  Negative feelings are important to sort out and movies can really help you do this without the dire consequences of doing it in person.  Do you know what envy feels like?  How about jealousy?  These are powerful emotions and learning to deal with them constructively is a prerequisite for Spiritual growth and for living peacefully in this world.  Will you need to sort through these emotions in person? Yes and if you have a good understanding of them from watching movies the process is less harmful and more beneficial.  The same can be said for positive emotions like love and respect.

The Universe provides all you need to grow and prosper.  Movies are a valuable part of the process when used consciously.  Never fear your emotions, nor should you avoid feeling them.  Allow them to flow and you will be the better for it.  When you make this a conscious process more the better!  I bless you on your Journey of Love and happy viewing.

Spiritual Movies

It has been several weeks since I blogged.  Mostly because I took a holiday, but also because I didn’t have anything I have not already blogged about.  Today I read someone else’s blog on movies and was inspired to share an aspect of life which brings Joy to my life.  I love a good movie and if it has a positive uplifting message all the better.  I was struck by the list provided titled, “Movies With Truth or Consciousness”.   The list included many movies I have already seen, but also many which I deemed too dark or negative.  Truth and Consciousness is such a relative and individual concept.  So at the risk of totally missing our Truth and Consciousness I will share mine.

All movies have an important message for you or you would not have been presented with the opportunity to experience it.  You have a choice!  Sometimes negative stories provide an insight which is valuable without you actually having to experience it directly.  Perhaps this is why movies about death, murder, war, violence etc. are so popular.  The option of seeing it on the big screen vs. in your own personal life is quite attractive.  Of course there is no reason you must know of these things either, unless you say there is!

The following movies I have personally seen and found value in relation to my Spiritual Journey of Discovery, the purpose being to expand my own personal understanding and conception of consciousness.  The list is incomplete!  But then the journey never ends either.

First let us start with a movie service called “Spiritual Cinema Circle”.  There are plenty of spiritual movies of inspiration and motivation being made – movies with thought-provoking, uplifting stories – but they almost never make their way to your local theater.  Spiritual Cinema Circle monthly DVD club gives these unique spiritual movies a “theater”… right in your own home.

GaiamTV.com also is a service which you subscribe to and offers many of the movies I will list here today.  For those seeking lasting change in their life’s path and identity, Gaiam TV is the world’s largest source of transformational media. Their exclusive videos go beyond the boundaries of mainstream media to reveal new and enlightening perspectives to help you thrive in our changing world.

This list of movies comes in no particular order and has links to more info:

The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions – Gives a great representation of exactly what we are to the Elite of the world –batteries. We fuel their entire matrix and designed system. Perhaps even more profound is how this film reveals what it is like to awaken and step out of The Matrix into the real world. Only the mind’s stories and your ego are what limit you.

Avatar – A film involving consciousness and how we are all connected as one to each other, the planet, and the animal kingdom.

Cloud Atlas – An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present, and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.

Life of Pi – Life of Pi, according to Yann Martel, can be summarized in three statements- “Life is a story… You can choose your story… A story with God is the better story.” A reoccurring theme throughout the novel seems to be believability. Pi at the end of the book asks the two investigators “If you stumble about believability, what are you living for?”  According to Gordon Houser there are two main themes of the book: “that all life is interdependent, and that we live and breathe via belief.” (wikipedia.org)

What Dreams May Come – Sheds light on the fact that we can sometimes create what appears as a periodic afterlife for ourselves based on what we believed while living. We remain in this afterlife until we figure out how to move beyond it and reincarnate again.

Defending Your Life – A comical view of life and death, with a wonderful love story to boot!

Astral City: A Spiritual Journey (Nosso Lar) – The life of the doctor André Luiz in the spiritual city of Nosso Lar. In Portuguese with English subtitles.

K-Pax – The Story is presented in two perspectives and gives the viewer the choice of which is “true”.  It also offers some wonderful insight into extraterrestrial technology and society i.e. other ways of living.

Celestine Prophecy – A spiritual method of living by example.

Conversations with God – We all talk to God every day, are you listening?

Peaceful Warrior – Eastern teachings brought to life!

La Belle Vert (The Green Beautiful) – Shows the interconnectedness we all share, and how far off the human experience on earth has drifted from that. Focuses on the simplicity and peace that inherently comes from a planet based on love and oneness. French with English subtitles.

Mr. Destiny – A comedic and light-hearted film that introduces the idea of timelines, ultimately showing that as unpleasant as one’s current reality may seem, it is always that which is best for soul growth and experience.

Ambition to Meaning – This is a film made by Dr. Wayne Dyer and is based on some of his books. It is a great depiction of 3 different stories that all intertwine with one another. This film is geared towards spreading the message of shifting ones consciousness to create a new and more expanded life. All his materials are uplifting.

You Can Heal Your Life – Louise Hay offers a fresh perspective on healing and healthy living thru the story of a young ladies life.

Waking Life – Are dreams as real as reality? The film looks at dreams and how they can be as real and full of growth as “real life” is.

The Thirteenth Floor – Question Reality movie

The Truman Show – Question Reality movie

Yes Man – The power of YES!  What if you said Yes to everything?

The Game – Perhaps life is a Game?  This movie explores the possibility indirectly.

Battle for Terra – Great message about Humanity and Heroism.

A Wrinkle in Time – Maturation story with wonderful insights on time and the nature of reality.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven – Your experience in Heaven is based on your beliefs.  The message is specific for you, so mistakes are not possible.

Dinotopia – Life is a journey and this story makes it fun and fanciful!

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy – A comical view of life which questions reality.

Baraka & Samsara – A collection of expertly photographed scenes of human life and religion, directed by Ron Fricke
