CREATING A BETTER WORLD STARTS WITH AN INFORMED CITIZENRY
Film offers us a powerful tool to shift awareness and inspire action. Get informed about basic ecology, understand basic truths about peak oil and the monetary system, the truth about capitalism and governments. Our society needs a new story to belong to. The old story of empire and dominion over the earth has to be looked at in the full light of day – all of our ambient cultural stories and values that we take for granted and which remain invisible must become visible. Knowledge and introspection, dreaming, questioning, and discovery is essential for a cultural transformation that addresses root causes. This knowledge is vitally necessary. ― FILMS FOR ACTION (and also 10 Worldchanging Movies)
A MESSAGE FOR ALL HUMANITY
One of the most inspirational speeches in recorded history was given by a comedian by the name of CHARLIE CHAPLIN in THE GREAT DICTATOR.
WHEN MOVIES SAY IT ALL
COACH CARTER: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” ― Marianne Williamson
FREEDOM: What is freedom? Are you a freedom seeker? What is your passion?
“Freedom is getting to know myself who I really am and waking up every day knowing that I get to create what’s going to happen to me.” ―Jodi Maestas-Carothers, USA
IMAGINARY BORDER: I realize that I am the only one in control of my life. So I cannot blame society for what is happening to me because I am the only one that can draw a line or draw a border between what I really am and what they want me to be.
INSTINCT: “The greatest illusion of all illusions is the illusion of control.” — Pete Wilson
It’s amazing how easy it is to convince ourselves that we’re in control of everything in our lives. When it comes right down to it, what we eventually learn is that we are in control of only two things: our own thoughts, and our own actions.
LIVE IN A DAY: It is the Story of Our World. Told by Us.
PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS: Don’t ever let somebody tell you…you can’t do something. You got a dream, you gotta protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they’re gonna tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.
STAR WARS V: MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU, ALWAYS. “For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it… makes it grow. Its ENERGY surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you. Here, between you, me… the tree, the rock… everywhere.” ― Yoda
THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON: IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO BE WHOEVER YOU WANT TO BE! There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. (In French)
THE MATRIX: The only good is Knowledge (Red pill), the only evil is Ignorance (Blue pill). The choice is yours! / The system: Most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
THE NOTEBOOK: “Would you stop thinking about what everyone wants? Stop thinking about what I want, what he wants, what your parents want. What do you want? What do you want?” – When writing the story of your life, don’t let anyone else hold the pen.
THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR: INSIDE YOURSELF IS THE ONLY PLACE WHERE YOU CAN FIND WHAT YOU NEED. Everyone tells you what to do and what’s good for you. They don’t want you to find your own answers. They want you to believe theirs. People are afraid of what’s inside. / Here and now: Action always happens in the present, because it is an expression of the body, which can only exist in the here and now. But the mind is like a phantom that lives only in the past or future. It’s only power over you is to draw your attention out of the present. / Life is Choice: YOU CAN BE A VICTIM OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE.
THE SHIFT: Finding your life’s purpose could be right in front of your face. “There’s a place deep within us that wants to feel fulfilled. It wants to know that, my life has made a difference, that I have left this place, this planet that I have lived on better than when I arrived, that someone’s life has been profoundly touched because of my existence. We all want that. Wherever you are, at whatever age, you’re only a thought away from changing your life.” – Dr Wayne Dyer
