We cannot teach people anything, we can only help them discover it within themselves.

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.

The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.

‘Look Up’ is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone.

Written, Performed & Directed by Gary Turk.

Gregg Braden takes us on a short trip through consciousness that connects our feelings and our mass reality.

on my way to maine from chicago, i took a slight detour and went to the last day of the Amma program in New England. it is absolutely amazing how she can sit in the same spot giving Darshan for over 12 hours (the Atma Puja ceremony + meditation for world peace began at 7pm last night and the Devi Bhava program didn’t end this morning until around 11 am! i walked around, ate more than once, took a nap, [...]

In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit and timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short and won the 2009 Emmy for ‘New Approaches’ (making it the first film to win an Emmy on behalf of the internet).

The Dawn of the Age

I found this beautiful video on Gwen Bell’s site last night. I’ve only briefly skimmed through a few pages on her site, though from what I’ve seen, Gwen’s perspective resonates a lot with how I see the world. Check out her place at gwenbell.com

What you’re feeling is what you attract (and the lens you see the world through). Yesterday afternoon, a couple hours before sunset, I felt connected to the trees, plants, and nature in the park I discovered when I went for a drive a little north of here [photos will be added later and found under yesterday's date]. I am grateful for the opportunity to go explore in nature and spend lots of time there growing my awareness, especially when I get my truck camper in the next couple weeks. Do whatever it takes to continue to live your dream and experience your passion.

Playing the Game of Life – Alan Watts

 

The Secret of Life – by Alan Watts

As it is, we are merely bolting our lives—gulping down undigested experiences as fast as we can stuff them in—because awareness of our own existence is so superficial and so narrow that nothing seems to us more boring than simple being. If I ask you what you did, saw, heard, smelled, touched and tasted yesterday, I am likely to get nothing more than the thin, sketchy outline of the few things that you noticed, and of those only what you thought worth remembering. Is it surprising that an existence so experienced seems so empty and bare that its hunger for an infinite future is insatiable? But suppose you could answer, “It would take me forever to tell you, and I am much too interested in what’s happening now.” How is it possible that a being with such sensitive jewels as the eyes, such enchanted musical instruments as the ears, and such a fabulous arabesque of nerves as the brain can experience itself as anything less than a god? And, when you consider that this incalculably subtle organism is inseparable from the still more marvelous patterns of its environment—from the minutest electrical designs to the whole company of the galaxies—how is it conceivable that this incarnation of all eternity can be bored with being?

- Alan Watts

what an incredible experience the last week or two has been! life is amazing when one allows it to flow!

i’ve been having some great conversations with people i just met and some that i’ve known for a while though hadn’t really conversed with. lots of amazing connections and understandings have come up. i was originally only going to be up in chicagoland for 2-3 weeks and was wanting to get on the road soon for my trip to the [...]

I. Avatars – Sri Bhagavan

An originally profound interview with Sri Bhagavan.

 

Experiencing Alone Remains – Sri Bhagavan

“Therefore, what is there is merely the experience, the experiencer is gone. There is merely seeing, the seer is gone. There is merely the thought, the thinker is gone. There is merely what is there, we are gone. And with that existential suffering goes away. Even if this should happens only for 5 minutes, you have such a powerful insight that you do not exist.”

~ Sri Bhagavan

The Futility of All Effort on the Spiritual Path – Sri Bhagavan

“Man cannot make it on his own; it has to be given to him.” ~ Sri Bhagavan



On another occasion, Sri Bhagavan gave the following answer:



”If you would realize that there is nothing you could do about it, that is the beginning of love. In spirituality, the moment you realize there is nothing you could do about it, that is the beginning of all spiritual growth. As long as you keep trying you will never ever get there because that trying is the problem. 



That trying is the thing which takes you away from where you want to be. You have to realize the futility of all effort in the inner world. All effort on the spiritual path is futile. If you could realize that, it could hit you like a ton of bricks and then all effort ceases. The moment effort is gone, there is love, and there is peace. But as long as you keep struggling you keep putting in some effort you will move further away.



If you want to discover love and you put in some effort, you will move further away from love. If you want peace and you put in some effort, you would move further away from peace because that very effort is the disturbance, the noise. You have to realize that futility of effort.”

Louie Schwartzberg is an award-winning cinematographer, director, and producer whose notable career spans more than three decades providing breathtaking imagery for feature films, television shows, documentaries and commercials.

As a visual artist, Louie has created some of the most iconic and memorable film moments of our time. He is an innovator in the world of time-lapse, nature, aerial and “slice-of-life” photography – the only cinematographer in the world who has literally been shooting 24 hours a day, 7 days a week continuously for more than 30 years.

Louie was recognized as one of the top 70 Cinematographers for the On Film Kodak Salute Series. He is a member of the Directors Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

Louie is credited by many with pioneering the contemporary stock footage industry by founding Energy Film Library, a global company with a network of 12 foreign offices, which was acquired by Getty Images in 1997. Motion picture clients of his cinematic artistry include Sex in the City, The Bourne Ultimatum, Die Hard 4, Syriana, Crash, Men in Black and classics such as American Beauty, Koyaanisqatsi and E.T. among others.

Louie went on to found BlackLight Films, a creative production company specializing in producing original theatrical feature, large format films, HD and TV programming.

In 2004, BlackLight Films completed production of the theatrical feature film, America’s Heart &Soul, distributed theatrically by Walt Disney Pictures. In 2006, BlackLight Films completed a series of HD shorts, Louie Films, for the launch of Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s Blu-Ray DVD releases. In 2007, the company produced a 1-hour special, Chasing the Light, which aired nationally on PBS.

Past projects include the 35mm film Seasons of the Vine for Disney’s California Adventure Theme Park and a 26-half hour series, America!, for The Hallmark Channel.

Louie has won two Clio Awards for Best Environmental Broadcast Spot, an Emmy nomination for Best Cinematography for the Discovery Channel Special, Oceans of Air, and the Heartland Film Festival’s Truly Moving Picture Award for Walt Disney Pictures’ feature film release America’s Heart & Soul.

Louie completed production on a feature length nature documentary, Wings of Life, to be theatrically released worldwide, under Walt Disney Pictures’ new production banner, Disneynature. The film was released in France (March 2011) under the title Pollen and won the Roscar Award for Best Cinematography at the 2011 Wild Talk Africa Film Festival.

Louie spoke at the TED 2011 conference in Long Beach, CA and has been a regular presenter at the annual Bioneers Conference in San Francisco. Currently, Louie is in production with National Geographic to produce Hidden Worlds, a 3D Imax film.

Process of Dying and Moksha (liberation upon death) – Sri Bhagavan

If you ask for liberation (moksha), the beauty is that no matter what has happened in your life, the Light cannot say “no”!

~ Sri Bhagavan

View also The Phases of Life: youtu.be/Ry_i2lWkolU

Here are a few more voices on the same subject:

Dying is easy,
believe me, it is like
blissful dreaming.
Vast becomes the space . . .
in shorelessly drifting felicity
you give yourself back
to the Primal Ocean.

~ Ephides

Nobody dies, death means finished; for example, a drop of water when it evaporates has become infinite. There is no death for anything, everything finishes to become infinite.

~ Nisargadatta Maharaj

At death there is only liberation. It’s just more chic to see liberation while you’re alive.

~ Max Furlaud

Everything that comes from birth undoes itself in liberation.

~ Jen Smith

Here. You are there already. You are in Nirvana. You are like a fish claiming it is thirsty. You are right in the middle of it. Here. Here.

~ Janwillem van de Wetering

Die before you die and be completely dead; then do whatever you want, it’s all good.

~ Wu Men

Empty yourself of everything. Let the mind rest at peace.
The ten thousand things rise and fall while the Self watches their return. They grow and flourish and then return to the source. Returning to the source is stillness, which is the way of nature.

~ Lao Tzu

All things emerge from that silence, and return to that silence. You, too, would eventually merge into that silence from which you emerged in the first instance.

~ Sri Bhagavan

Everything ends in mystery . . .

~ Heraclitus

 

Sri Bhagwan:- Learn to experience people rather than understanding people

Sri Bhagavan :- You are joy and your experience is Joy and your nature of you is Joy…
