Movie Review, I Am

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.

On the offense team
The cliché, “The best defense is a good offense,” makes sense even to non-sports people like me. It can be applied to ball games, military combat, and I believe, it can be applied to religion. Too much defense and there is a lack of vision ...
