The Awakening



I borrowed these videos from I.E.T. Intelligent Emotional Truths. This is a new blog that I've recently found, if interested, please stop by.

I know I'm into videos these days, but they seem to express my feelings better than I can. Maybe because this last week has been spent chasing my two-year-old grandson and 3 month-old grandpuppy!

These videos help me to feel better about the world, and all that seems to be going wrong. Maybe it's meant to be this way. Maybe we are meant to want something different, and only in the extreme desire for equality, will it be able to come to fruition.





What do you think?

Hey, I love seeing videos! Off to take a look @ these. You'll need a vacation after chasing a two-year-old around.

I did watch the videos and was very impressed with their message. But as soon as I went to their website and saw the need to exchange money for the viewing of the movie at "Clearpointe"...I begin to question. Are they not just asking people to follow them to their new "church" for their take on a new religion? I've seen a few non profits filling their pockets deeply at the expense of those willing follow.
I trust that everything I need to know for the awakening is inside of ME. The knowledge we need to move into a new paradigm shift is unique to each one of us. There is no one size fits all. I don't need to pay $10.00 to find that out...so I question the motives of those involved even if they do have the best of intentions. Gathering to share our knowledge and love should not have the power of money attached to it. This may be part of a mistrust I've picked up from following many different paths to where I am today. Which IS a path to unlimited love of self and others. I get skeptical when one person or a group decides they want others to follow them...and I think others should be skeptical as well. Their message IS beautiful and encouraging. Hope this doesn't offend. Thanks for allowing me to share my thoughts on this.

love and light,
karen

Maggie - Wow, I had no idea they had a website or wanted money to view a movie. I just found the two videos. I agree with everything you said.

Nancy said...

Maggie - I went to the filmmaker's site but didn't get the same vibe that you did - I wonder if we viewed the same footage? It didn't ask for money, nor did it talk about a church.. Did I miss something?

Star said...

Not for me I'm afraid. If you really watch the videos carefully you will see that they don't really say anything at all that you don't know already.
We have everything we need within us already. We just need to use it all wisely. I think we all know that.
Blessings, Star

Thanks for the reminder of Eckart Tolle. I discovered him in 2007. I need to re-study this!

'The sudden emergence of the Dionysian element from the depths of the unconscious and the heights of the superconscious was too threatening for the Euro-American society. In addition, the irrational and transrational nature of psychedelic experiences seriously challenged the very foundations of the materialistic worldview of Western science. The existence and nature of these experiences could not be explained in the context of mainstream theories and seriously undermined the metaphysical assumptions concerning priority of matter over consciousness on which Western culture is built. It also threatened the leading myth of the industrial world by showing that true fulfillment does not come from achievement of material goals but from a profound mystical experience.'

From Stanislav Grof - Reality Sandwich.

The search is as old as humankind but it grows in strength with each passing day.

Nancy, I had a very difficult time watching these films. I don't mean "because they blew chunks" but I mean I had to force myself to focus on them, and at one point actually got a little teary-eyed.

So what do I think? I think there is a huge part of me that wishes that I had faith, and that maybe there is another part of me that fights off any attempts of mine to find it.

I guess that there's some validity to anything that evokes that kind of reaction, you know?

By the way, I went all over that website, looked at "join us" and signed up for the mailing list, and at no point was I asked for a donation, nor was there any cost, so I'm not sure what Maggie encountered but it appears to be something without cost.

Shimp - While watching the second film, I made a comment to myself and said "no more" during one of the war scenes and actually felt a physical "tingling" run up my legs. It was the strangest thing.
