I just watched Avatar in 3D at our local movie theater and I Loved It!
Some will watch the movie and walk away saying how great the CGI was. I walked away with tears in my eyes ready to roll down my cheeks from the profound spiritual message.
So what was the message I received when I watched this powerfully beautiful movie?
We as humans, in this illusion we live in, have forgotten just how connected all things are. Just how we each are not only connected to each other, but to each and everything. We have, as our past indicates, taken the position that this world is ours to conquer with a fair amount of disregard for how our actions effect everyone and everything. How our actions change the reality we perceive. We have, in the past, disrespected the energy, the life-force, Chi or Ki that is All That Is. We have pretended this doesn’t matter, and as we have taken that attitude, we created a world of disrespect, dis-empowerment, disharmony, and unbalance, while all along acting from a place of fear.
This fear creates room for dis-ease within the environment, wherever that may be does not matter, the result is the same. Just as dis-ease is created in our environment, we manifest dis-ease within our own lives, and therefore within our bodies. One reflects the other as this has been our prevailing attitude. We will never expect to see or experience anything different if our attitude remains the same.
This movie, Avatar, was the latest of many that have had a wonderfully powerful spiritual message. Even if the message has been lost on some, hidden under the CGI, and action, it has been there. How profoundly wonderful it is to see and experience these suggestions for change, for a deeper understanding to occur so that we as a race may correct our attitude and thinking.
