We all need inspiration. I personally get a lot of my inspiration from
reading books, listening to music and watching movies.
Some movies really seem to touch us. At least more than others. If you would like to receive a DVD with inspiring movies every month, look at Spiritual Cinema Circle.
On this page I would like to share with you some of the movies
that ispired me...to do something.
Sometimes a movie inspires me to do something small, and sometimes
I sure hope these movies can inspire you as well.
What the bleep do we know
|One of the most inspiring movies I have seen this summer (2005) is "What the bleep do we know". If you'd like to see it, you can buy it at Amazon. The movie shows us how certain moments in our lives are so engrained in our system (our brains), that we tend to respond to certain situations based on reflexes that we aren't even aware of.
When you are going to buy this movie, I suggest that before you see it...you go to their website, http://whatthebleep.com/download , and download the study guide. Depending on your liking, read it before or after the movie, but it will greatly enhance your understanding of the movie.
Find below some quotes that are posted on whatthebleep.com
If those who lead you say to you, "See, the Kingdom is in the sky," then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, "It is in the sea," then the fish will precede you. Rather, the Kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.
- (All the sayings of Jesus gathered from ancient sources and compiled into a single volume for the first time. Compiled by Ricky Alan Mayotte) From The Complete Jesus. (Pg 71) Jesus
As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of being.
- Carl Jung
In the century now dawning, spirituality, visionary consciousness, and the ability to build and mend human relationships will be more important for the fate and safety of this nation than our capacity to forcefully subdue an enemy. Creating the world we want is a much more subtle but more powerful mode of operation than destroying the one we don't want.
- Marianne Williamson
Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power.We have guided missiles and misguided men.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
Consciousness is a being, the nature of which is to be conscious of the nothingness of its being.
- Jean-Paul Sartre
This is one of the greatest movies I have seen in 2006. Not really a movie or documentary, The Secret is more of a video seminar, a presentation featuring a series of authors, philosophers, doctors, quantum physicists, entrepreneurs, and spiritual practitioners expounding on the powers of The Secret (probably the most well-known of the presenters is Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul and The Success Principles). What is The Secret, exactly? "That principle can be summed up in three simple words: thoughts become things," proclaims writer Mike Dooley, author of Notes from the Universe. Put it another way, it’s The Power of Positive Thinking and how it can be applied to attracting more money, better health, and relationships; in short, happiness. (There is a rundown of topics on the DVD Chapters menu).
Most of the material here is given in a straightforward manner, with the presenters simply talking into the camera to address the audience directly, which is good because it avoids the trap of pretense. On the other hand, the quick edits between presenters (would it hurt to let them say more than one sentence at a time?) don't help because it reduces many of their points to palatable sound bites and aphorisms. To many viewers, this may make the program come across as a series of nice ideas not rooted in reality. Plus it's somewhat spurious to claim that The Secret was well understood and practiced by specific individuals like Plato or Shakespeare (it's well known that some of the historical figures noted didn't exactly live happy or even prosperous lives, despite their achievements). But still, the primary message is one of positivity and hope for everyone. So what to make of it? In the end, programs like this generally find an audience that is open to the message, and many will probably find it to be a source of inspiration. Others will approach it with a good deal of skepticism or dismiss it as another way of marketing happiness the masses. It simply won’t resonate with everyone, but if it resonates with you, you're likely to enjoy it and get a lot out of it. Those looking for more on The Secret might want to check out the companion book by Rhonda Byrne.The new "extended edition" of this ground-breaking feature length movie presentation reveals The Great Secret of the universe. It has been passed throughout the ages, traveling through centuries... to reach you. This is The Secret to everything - the secret to unlimited joy, health, money, relationships, love, youth: everything you have ever wanted. In this astonishing program are ALL the resources you will ever need to understand and live The Secret. For the first time in history, the world's leading scientists, authors, and philosophers will reveal The Secret that utterly transformed the lives of every person who ever knew it... Plato, Newton, Carnegie, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Einstein. Now YOU will know The Secret. And it can change your life forever.
