Movie Review, I Am

posted by Cheryl Petersen

Tom Shadyac, a movie producer, went on a crusade to figure out what was wrong with our world and how we can fix it. He documented his discoveries in the film “I Am.” After meeting and talking with prominent people and leading thinkers in the world, his conclusion was that we must look at what is right in the world and try to cultivate it.

He visited the Heartmath Institute, dedicated to helping people connect with themselves and nature, and the results they’ve found resonate.

The brain isn’t the source of intelligence. The heart is a hub of thoughts and emotions that actually affect the brain. For example, anger tends to stop the brain and we make stupid decisions. Constituents at the Heartmath Institute mentioned the fact that what they are finding has been known and taught for millenniums by religious leaders and gurus.

I’ve learned through Christian Science that I can accept thoughts from God, not the human mind, and respond to life much better. I can also utilize the thoughts of divine Mind, God, Love, to protect myself from greed, envy, and hate.

Psalm 16:7

New International Version (NIV)

I will praise the Lord, who counsels me;
even at night my heart instructs me.

A buzz in my ear from life
The woods around us are teeming with black flies. During the muggy summer days those flies are doing what? Flying. This morning on my walk the flies were so thick I thought I might breathe one in. I felt annoyance build up as I tried to swat them away. Then I looked beyond the buzzing in my face

What would our world be like if all the advertisements for cell-phones, perfumes, cold cereals, cars, shampoos, cold medicines, insurance coverage, and teeth whiteners were replaced with advertisements for honesty, moral courage, gratitude, awareness, wisdom, integrity, and creativity?
