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.

Once experts realized genes aren’t stable and can mutate, the human mind took off in multiple directions, some not so good. Genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) have become popular, although not exactly admired. Many of the plants and trees we grow have been forced selected. For example,

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
