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!” 🙂
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.” – 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. 🙂
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 – 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.
