Can Film Awaken Global Consciousness? Eckhart Tolle Thinks So...

Can Film Awaken Global Consciousness? Eckhart Tolle Thinks So…

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Movies

Last month I connected with the co-producer of What Dreams May Come and co-writer of The Celestine Prophecy movie. His name is Barnet Bain.

As kindred souls, we hit it off, and Barnet asked me if I’d help raise global consciousness by sharing information about a new movie he’s directing with Eckhart Tolle.

I obviously said “YES!” ๐Ÿ™‚

The movie is based off of the book “Milton’s Secret: An Adventure of Discovery through Then, When and the Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle and Robert S. Friedman.

Eckhart Tolle is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Power of Now and A New Earth, two of the most influential spiritual books of our time. Robert S. Friedman is the visionary co-founder of Hampton Roads Publishing, and the original publisher of Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch. This movie also stars Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Peter Fonda.

“How you spend your money is how you vote on what exists in the world.” โ€“ Vicki Robin

Like Eckhart and Barnet, I believe conscious media has the power to change our world in very meaningful ways. That’s why I’ve already donated money to this campaign before I ever told a soul about it.

I invite you to check it out to see if supporting this (in any way, even just sharing it) resonates with you or anybody you know.

At the link above is a video that is really worth watching. It includes comments from Eckhart, Barnet, and several others about what makes this movie so unique – and so important to the future of our world.

In regards to the above quote from Vicki Robin…

Everything we spend money on is a silent agreement that we support it’s existence AND how it came to be. For example, when we purchase blue items we are quietly ‘voting’ for blue to exist in the world.

Or when we purchase non-organic food, we are quietly ‘voting’ to have pesticides and GMOs in our food.

When we purchase books from a certain author, we are quietly ‘voting’ to support that author and all the messages that author seeks to bring to the world.

Then there’s things like charitable organizations. When we support Pachamama Alliance, we’re voting to protect the rainforests of the Amazon.

Those are a few examples.

It goes on… basically everything we purchase is our way of saying “I want more of this in the world.”

That’s why I’m voting to bring conscious movies to the mainstream media. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also recognize that it’s not always just “black and white…”

Sometimes our choices are limited. Perhaps we can’t afford to eat organic food, so we must eat conventional. Or maybe we live in an area where organic food isn’t even available, so we eat conventional food full of pesticides. Maybe we can’t afford to donate money to support Milton’s Secret, so we share it on Facebook or Twitter.

Still, the fundamentals are basically there โ€“ and usually we can do -something- to vote with our money or at least our actions. Whether it’s just one very small change… perhaps even a $1 donation to a favorite charity or conscious movie production, or to commit to just purchasing a few organic fruits, and so on.

Whatever our hearts are passionate about, we can choose more consciously to support them.

The Cure Is – Spiritual Movie Review

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Movies

The Cure Is MovieWhen faced with life-threatening illness, pople come face-to-face with what is really important. They have to make difficult decisions about how to put their affairs in order, and how they’ll live out the rest of their days.

Some people resign themselves to the outcome others say is their destiny. Others become examples of healing miracles.

What’s the difference?

The Cure Is” seeks to illuminate exactly what these differences are.

Is it your emotions or the perfect diet with exercise? Must you purge all toxic chemicals from your living space? Does it matter what you put on your body?

And if it is any (or all) of those things, where do you start? How do you deal with the overwhelm of feeling like you need to change so much so fast?

Excellent questions with not necessarily easy answers. Possible yes. Easy, no.

One thing I appreciated about this movie is the integration of science and spirituality. The experts help illuminate how changing our perceptions and emotional experiences actually change the way our cells behave — whether we’re talking about DNA and genetic expression, or illness of varying degress.

While the movie had some excellent quotes and dialogues, there were three sentences that caught my attention as being the most significant to fully understand. If a person were to understand these three statements, in their entirety, their lives would change forever and for the better. Here they are:

“Having gotten cancer, I feel liberated.”

“Until you know how you actually work, you’re not in control of your life.”

“Remember that most of what is considered impossible is just a consensus of outdated beliefs.”

The ultimate question to ask ourselves is this…

Why wait until we’re dying before we learn how to live?

Click Here And Get “The Cure Is”

If you aren’t living as fully, vibrantly, and healthily as you want to (or believe you’re capable of), or if you just want to ensure that you continue to do so, then check out “The Cure Is.” It’s a movie well-worth watching and sharing.

Spiritual Movie Review: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Movies

Best Exotic Marigold Hotel ReviewA little while back, a woman who reads my emails regularly (and is a graduate of my “Liberate Your Life” program) strongly recommended that I watch “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” I’d never heard of it before, and I almost never go to the theaters, so I considered just waiting for it to come out on DVD.

However, the opportunity arose where I found myself alone with some much needed “Me Time,” and I instinctively felt compelled to watch it. The movie couldn’t have landed in my life at a better time.

On the surface, Best Exotic looks like a rehash of several previous movies — comedic, dramatic, and romantic. To oversimplify like that would unfortunately miss the point because it includes all of that and more. What I especially liked about this movie is the way it follows along the transformation of several characters. In looking through others’ eyes, we can see our own shortcomings AND opportunities.

And that’s what this movie is really all about: Perspective. It reminds us what true humility is. Not the kind where we think we’re pretending to be humble, but the kind where we really do bow down to the greatness inherent within others. Best Exotic also reminds us what it’s like to follow our heart’s wishes and dreams, and to recognize through the lens of humility, that what each of us wants in the outer world may look different… but inside… we all all the same.

I frequently found myself (and others in the theater) chuckling at many of the lines in this movie. That lightness helped support the deeper, heartful, challenging messages of the movie. Messages like what it means to live in “integrity,” how to overcome obstacles and challenge our fears, how to live authentically and stop lying to ourselves, and to not repeat the same mistakes from our past.

My primary criticism of the movie is that there were several worn-out cliches that were intending to be funny, but just felt old to me. For those who haven’t heard them before, it’ll be a great laugh. For those familiar with the cliches though, a groanin “That was baaaaaad” is probably more likely.

Regardless, the acting was excellent and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel gets two thumbs up from me. It’s a movie I’m grateful to share with you, and would be delighted to watch again anytime the opportunity arises.

Sacred Love Video โ€“ Help create a Better World!

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Movies

My friend’s Cyndi and Iain over at Super Mind Evolution System created this wonderful video with a single question in mind:

What if 10,000 people every day were focused – from the heart – on our Highest and Best world?

Please watch it then pass it along! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sacred Love by Iain Legg and Cyndi Krupp

Here’s a bit more about how Cyndi and Iain describe their vision:

“Watch this video daily and imagine living in a better world

… a world of equality, unity and harmony

leaders with integrity who serve with honesty and transparency

a world of abundance…

of clean air, food and water for everyone

…freedom for everyone

a world of happiness

a world of love”

(Video) I hope you get what you deserve! :)

I was so touched by this movie that I wanted to make sure everybody I know watches it. This is a real video with Jack Canfield (co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series) and he's telling a story about a little boy named Bobsie who is dying of terminal cancer.

Yes, that's the sad part. It seems that everybody I know has had somebody close to them die of cancer (including my brother who did in 2001).

But here's the thing…

This is one of those videos where it really pays to watch to the very end because the lesson Jack shares is both unexpected and VERY powerful… not only is it about how we can live this life to its fullest, I really see it as being about what we all deserve (including you and me).

Click Here Now And Watch It

I feel deep in my heart that if everybody knew the lesson that Jack teaches, our world would be a VERY different place.

So after you watch it, take a few moments to reflect inward about what Jack shares. I know I had tears in my eyes, and you just might also.

And if you know somebody, anybody, who would also be touched by Bobsie's story then remember to share this video with them. You can easily forward this email to them, and on the video page are buttons to share it on Facebook and Twitter.

"Some people go through life trying to find out what the world holds for them only to find out too late that it’s what they bring to the world that really counts." – Anne of Green Gables

In today’s fast-paced world, it can be easy to lose sight of what’s important…

No, wait. I take that back. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s not really about our world being fast-paced, is that as we get older, WE become fast-paced.

It seems that as a child we intuitively knew the simple things that made life amazing… and as adults, it sometimes feel like we have so much to do, so much to be, so much to have… so much so that we need reminders of what it is like to live in a more present, aware, conscious, fulfilling way.

We all need reminders to bring us back to our true selves, and today I have a gift to help you do exactly that. It’s an insightful, touching, heartwarming and thought-provoking video called "The Seven Wonders."

Spiritual Cinema Circle – Sept. 2010 Preview

Miracle or Science? Several years ago, astronaut Edgar Mitchell was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor on his kidney. To heal it, he engaged the services of a long-distance energy healer. Within a few months the tumor had completely disappeared.

The science behind “miraculous healings” is the focus of The Living Matrix, a new documentary that explains bioenergetics, heart coherence, and the placebo effect. These topics explain how formerly unexplainable healings take place every day.

Marilyn Schiltz, Ph.D., a leading noetic scientist and anthropologist, healed herself with the power of “intention” after a serious accident. Another woman in the film healed from a brain tumor with a powerful form of “energetic-based information medicine.” What may have once been called magic is now understood by science.

These stories, along with expert commentary from Marilyn Schiltz, Bruce Lipton, Dean Radin, Lynne Mc Taggart, Eric Pearl and Rubert Sheldrake, reveal the latest breakthrough science that now allows us to “deliberately initiate miracle cures.”

This powerful and informative film will change the way you view your ability to heal, and thanks to Spiritual Cinema Circle, you can receive The Living Matrix plus three entertaining films for FREE (just pay shipping & handling) when you sign up for a trial membership.

This month’s volume features The Living Matrix and three other films including:

He’s given one last chance to change his ways…will he?

7 Reasons the Film “Avatar” Is Symbolic Of the Spiritual Life

Written by Chris Cade on . Posted in Spiritual Movies

Special thanks to John Manley of MetaphysicalSF for this guest post!


Whether intentional or not, James Cameron’s film Avatar contains many spiritual analogies. Here are seven examples I observed:

  1. The Na’vi race have a striking similarity to depictions of Hindu avatars like Krishna and Rama. Coincidence? Apparently not. James Cameron admitted to Entertainment Weekly that he made the Na’vis blue “because there’s a connection to the Hindu deities, which I like conceptually.”

  2. The paradise world of Pandora represents the higher realms of spiritual consciousness or the “Inner Garden of Eden” that we all aspire towards.
  3. Just as the humans came to Pandora for its mighty ore so we often turn to spiritual realms for superficial and material motives.
  4. The way the avatar drivers would slip into those “link-up” devices, enter a trance state and lose identification with their physical bodies sure reminds me of meditation.
  5. At first Jake is impressed by the superficial experiences of his avatar life as a Na’vi โ€“ just like those who start to meditate are hung up on seeing some light, hearing astral sounds or having a vision.
  6. As the movie progresses Jake begins to appreciate the mystical ways of the Na’vi people โ€“ just as the meditator starts to discover the subtler joys of the “inner life.”
  7. And just as Jake’s exploration of Pandora is disturbed by vicious animals, bulldozers and military conquest… so the spiritual seeker’s exploration of the inner world is often attacked by wild desires, the bulldozing effect of material consciousness and the mind’s battle against it’s own armies of restlessness.
    In effect, Avatar is an eternal story retold in futuristic trappings. Like the Bhagavad-Gita’s symbolic war of Kurukshestra Avatar depicts the battle within the spiritual aspirant to reclaim their inner kingdom of God-realization.
