Interesting Films

I have, in my middle aged years, become disenchanted with popular American films. I’m sure it’s a combination of my ever-increasing accumulation of birthdays as well as personal growth away from culture of violence and glamour. I don’t watch television of any sort, including news, TV series, sports, but I do like to enjoy movies. It’s become obvious, to me at least, American movies have changed over the years into something I simply no longer wish to watch. I eventually turned to non-American films mostly from Europe and Asia. Reading subtitles had been a deterrent from getting into non-English language films, but it’s become much easier now with viewing practice.

As an American growing up on Hollywood blockbuster movies I didn’t fully realize, until I did some traveling, how utterly deprived I was within my own cultural limitations. Pre 1960’s films, French New Wave, German, Russian, and many others were all neglected because I carried American superiority programming and belief that everything else must be substandard. Cultural centrism can indelibly distort one’s global perspective. Please don’t consider this bashing on American culture, or anyone’s, as every society has its own blind spots. I live in the US and intimately know its particular flavors of indoctrination.

Films worldwide are so beautiful, full of human expression, and rich in cultural diversity. To limit oneself within one’s own language, culture, artistic expression, and personal perspective, is quite debilitating in the long run as it deprives growth and understanding of the whole human experience, collectively known as humanity.

Here are 3 films I wish to share that I am just stunned by the beauty of how well they are crafted; photographically, editorially and artistically, as well as intellectually and emotionally engaging.

As a disclaimer, I am not a film critic and it is not the intent of this post to engage in pedantic arguments over film opinions. I have merely presented this to share what I opine to be worthy movies of viewing as alternatives to popular contemporary American films. With that said, I do wholeheartedly welcome suggestions of other spiritually oriented films.

I love you ALL, thanks for viewing and your input ;)))


Phoenix (2014)

A film by German director Christian Petzold starring Nina Hoss and Ronald Zehrfeld about a woman, in post WWII Berlin, who suffers a severe crisis of identity and embarks on a journey of discovery by attempting to reassemble her pre-war life. 

Phoenix-Movie-Poster

A spellbinding mystery of identity, illusion, and deception unfolds against the turmoil of post-World War II Germany in the stunning new film from acclaimed director Christian Petzold (Barbara, Jerichow). Nelly (Nina Hoss), a German-Jewish nightclub singer, has survived a concentration camp, but with her face disfigured by a bullet wound. After undergoing reconstructive surgery, Nelly emerges with a new face, one similar but different enough that her former husband, Johnny (Ronald Zehrfeld), doesn’t recognize her. Rather than reveal herself, Nelly walks into a dangerous game of duplicity and disguise as she tries to figure out if the man she loves may have been the one who betrayed her to the Nazis. Evoking the shadows and haunted mood of post-war Berlin, Phoenix weaves a complex tale of a nation’s tragedy and a woman’s search for answers as it builds towards an unforgettable, heart-stopping climax. ~ IFC Films

Samsara (2001)

A film by Pan Nalin starring Shawn Ku and Christy Chung about an Indian Himalayan Lama who chooses to leave monastery life for the desires of a carnal relationship and subsequent roads that choice leads to. Important to note this is not the documentary film of the same title from 2011, a magnificent film in its own right. 

What is more important: satisfying one thousand desires or conquering just one…

peli-samsaraA spiritual love-story set in the majestic landscape of Ladakh, Himalayas. Samsara is a quest; one man’s struggle to find spiritual Enlightenment by renouncing the world. And one woman’s struggle to keep her enlightened love and life in the world. But their destiny turns, twists and comes to a surprise ending… Written by Monsoon Films

Wings of Desire / Der Himmel über Berlin (1987)

A film by German director Wim Wenders starring Bruno Ganz, Solveig Dommartin, and Peter Falk about the Angels’ sympathetic relationship with incarnate humans and the desire of one angels wish to experience mortal life. Set in 1987 Berlin at the height of the Cold War just before the collapse of the wall. This is the original film to the American remake City of Angels (1998) starring Meg Ryan and Nicolas Cage.

Wings_Of_Desire(1987)Two angels, Damiel and Cassiel, observe life on Earth and the human condition. They’ve been doing this for a very long time and have seen both the best and the worse of mankind. Damiel wants nothing more than to be human – to feel, to touch, to smell, to have emotions. When his wish is granted he also learns that being human has its limitations that are in many ways no different than being immortal. Written by garykmcd

Method – The Mandala is created through an intuitive process in a high energy state, centered in the Heart. The geometry is created using a motion tracer, set into individual layers with gradient colors, and then mixed until the finished Mandala “pops” out. No additional shapes or colors are artificially added. The geometry totally produces the shapes and patterns that arise. The finished Mandala then “tells” me what its name is.

Distance/Frequency from Source is,

Directly proportional to the,

Magnitude of polarity,

Everything “outside” of Source IS polarity,

Creation IS polarity and the magnetism,

That attracts back into unity,

Thus creating experience,

The highest Celestial Realms close to Source,

Are minimal polarity,

The Earth Realm and the like,

ARE EXTREME POLARITY,

Creating a vast array of experiences,

Within the illusion of separation,

A massive game board,

Extreme Earth Duality Games,

Live from the center point of the Heart,

And the game board changes,

Eliminating the timelines of strife,

Only remaining timelines of higher service in LOVE.

Every octave shift in frequency from Source energy,

Cymatically creates a new pattern of vibration, a new geometric shape,

Crystalline geometry,

Spinning,

Source energy moving through infinite layers of spinning geometric patterns,

Creating Realms of potential form for consciousness to manifest,

Light refracting through the facets of each geometric shape,

Creates a multi-varied “perspective” of experience,

Infinite forms to explore,

On a Ray of Light.

Rhythmically dance in infinite flight,

Magnetically seeking to eventually  find,

A curious Being with an awakened mind,

So raise up Humanity for NOW is the time,

To discover the Truth of our eternal climb,

From spiritual infancy and Galactic seclusion,

To mastery of Self and Soul Family fusion,

Remember,

The splendor of the Cosmos is in each of our Hearts,

Expressed through millennia in humanities arts,

As a gesture of hope reaching forward in time,

 To the people creating a new paradigm.

Time,

Source energy slowed down in frequency,

Down and down,

The true meaning of the Fall,

Is the decrease in frequency the Earth-Human vessel experienced,

When desires and thoughts became self-serving and self-gratifying,

When power over others became an acceptable way to live,

Energy slowed down in vibration and the dense realm of gross matter,

We now experience became the collective reality we created,

And continue to create as long as we choose to BE in a lower vibratory state,

That lower state has been firmly controlled and manipulated by systems within systems,

Purposefully designed to keep us in Ego Consciousness running around in circles,

Wondering why this world feels so hard and empty,

When all we need to realize is,

LOVE,

That word the masculine, left-brained dominated culture,

Think/believe is for the weak,

Love is the frequency of Source energy,

The frequency of God, the All That IS,

When we align with that frequency within our Heart Center,

We see the illusions of this current world for what it is,

ILLUSION,

Controlled by a few who have horded ancient hidden knowledge of Time and Energy,

Intentionally kept secret from the people of Earth,

Well, NO LONGER!!

The people of Earth are awakening and discovering the greatest truth,

And the greatest lie never told,

WE ARE CREATORS,

Time/Energy,

Slowed down,

Gives us the opportunity to experience the components of creating,

DESIRE,

INTENT,

WILL,

FOCUS,

POWER,

PURITY,

IMAGINATION,

When we understand those components and compose them,

In a concerted effort,

In alignment with Source energy,

The frequency of God,

We become masters of our world,

The current powers in control of the illusion they have trapped us in,

WILL GO AWAY,

The real revolution is the evolution of consciousness.

Mastery of,

Self,

In,

Time.

And…….Don’t forget to smile!

Find your Heart Center,

Use your fingertips to feel the very point of the vortex,

Feel into IT,

Close your eyes and imagine you are slowly breathing in,

A pink mist of pure Love,

Swirling into a spiral rope gently moving,

Directly into that point on your fingertips,

Slowly breathe it in,

Feel your Heart light up, feel the hint of bliss,

Now imagine the beginning of this pink rope starts at Source,

A sphere of the brightest blinding light, Pure Love,

Out comes this swirling rope,

Extending through the highest Angelic Realms,

When the Angels see it they reach out and add their Love to it,

It becomes brighter,

The rope continues down through each Realm,

YOU pick which ones,

And each of them adds their own unique frequency of Love to it,

The rope gets brighter and brighter and brighter,

Extending down further and further and further,

Now it’s pink with a golden glow and gold sparks emanating from it,

Until, alas, it moves into the Earth Realm,

Down past the Moon and into Earths atmosphere,

Spiraling down through the blue sky,

Directly into your Heart.

IT was always specially for YOU.

Can YOU feel IT?

IT’S there,

Simply FEEL IT.

Feel…

WE are energetic BEings in an Earth-Human suit,

Walking a tiny blue dot in perpetual pursuit,

Of knowledge and wisdom by living a life,

Where painful learning is the purpose of strife,

So many struggle while traveling in time,

In the quicksand of density waiting for a sign,

From the far-away silent heavens above,

Are you there, can you hear me, please give me a shove,

In the direction that leads to a forgotten place,

Where peace may rule and we live in full grace,

Alas, the time has arrived where the dream can come true,

For the decision to Love is always waiting for YOU.
