What can Hollywood teach us about Consciousness?
“Defending Your Life”…a very funny movie that teaches a great lesson about fear, learning how to get what you want and standing up for yourself.
…watched a DVD called “Young @ Heart” about a Chorus of folks who are…well you get the idea…
I was inspired by this movie mostly because of their desire to just keep singing…right up until their bodies gave out…I mean why not right?!?!
One of the singers said “Nobody gets out of here alive…” referring to earth…I might ammend that to: “No Bodies get out of here alive, but every one continues to live.”
I know what you’re thinking…oh great…boring movies about Ghandi and John Denver…ick!
Nope…both those guys do inspire me, but I am not inspired by boring movies any more than you are…
The cool thing is…exciting movies do inspire…”The Matrix”, “Star Wars”, “2001: A space Odyssey”…all cool movies teach great lessons while taking you on an adventure.
I can actually find a lesson about consciousness in ANY movie! Yes, I am throwing down a challenge to the WORLD. You tell me about a movie and I will find a lesson in that movie about consciousness.
It’s pretty easy, really, because you have to be conscious to make a movie, so I always have a fall back answer…
“…This film teaches us that one needs to be conscious to make a film (but barely conscious to make certain films).”
So, this page will grow…with more of my favorite movies and your suggestions as well.
Shut up! You don’t expect me to believe that I can learn life lessons from a movie like “Groundhog Day”!! Um…well…yeah, I do. :-O
The sneak peaks look very cool and inspiring for this film that is still in production…you can help!
