Like most, starting a new year and ending the previous one, we make commitments on those things that we left behind and those in which we want to strengthen our present.
I’m sure we all have a list in which we include things like: more time for me, eat healthier, walk, be more patient, be more tolerant, FORGIVE (myself and my peers); some might add, find time for fun, give more time to my kids, work less and enjoy more, etc. etc.
I would like to add one more that could be said contains many of the above: NO to violence. When I say "No to violence" what I mean is, do not allow violence to take over and enthroned in my life.
It is very easy in recent times to echo the ways in which violence is expressed: Intolerance, Fanaticism, Religiosity, Impatience, and STRESS in our daily lives, in our family life, work, and society. All this we see expressed not only by ourselves but through radio, press, TV and film, plus video games.
I understand that many of you reading these lines are wondering. How can I do a commitment to non-violence, if the “bombardment” I have in the day is always violent? Exactly, lt’s start with the use of language: “bombing”; already implies violence, and I understand that its expression also involves the manifestation of what we feel in ourselves "threatened" by the environment. But what would it be like if instead of using the word “bombing” we change by “flood”; of news; the “avalanche” of violent programs on TV; the “countless”; violent action movies in our cinemas?
With this I want to focus on several issues that are important to me. True, the first thought in our heads is: I cannot change the world. False: I can make a difference by changing individually and thus extend to my surroundings and by multiplication, extend to the world.
At first I want to emphasize something that for me is The Truth: We are One, so whatever I change in my life will be extended to my fellow men, to the world.
Continuing the commitment of NO to Violence, I will detail some important points to meet that commitment, or at least set the intention to be made possible. First, I agree to be tolerant to my immediate family, my closest environment including my neighbors, my office mates. Do not react violently by the mere fact of having differing views. Once this purpose is achieved then I will be able to expand to my fellow citizens, rulers and the entire planet.
Secondly, I pledge to keep informed of what is happening in the country and the world, but with NO JUDGMENT. By this I mean understanding what happens and PRAY for those who prefer to live in violence, sending light for them to recuperate their PEACE –because once they have it will come back to me, because WE ARE ONE.
Third, being for me a very important commitment, SUPPORT all movement within the radio, press, TV and film, which lead to coexist in peace, harmony, tolerance and love among humans. Of course, I will always be against the war for which there is no excuse or reason. But we also have to understand -NO PERSONAL WAR, as well as global or between countries.
To do this, I want to share with you a movement that exists in the world to support the Spiritual Cinema; Spiritual understood what elevates us (no religious connotation). Supporting the Spiritual Cinema, I propose that we support films that move us all that is good within us and instead of those that prevail in theaters, do not promote the shadow in us, but the light and how good we are, like our Creator.
For some time now there are films that, without so much propaganda, have touched the hearts of all those who every day are more, such as: “What dreams May come”. Today, in an introductory period to the world there is a movie called “INDIGO” directed by Stephen Simon (the same as “What Dreams May Come” and “Somewhere in Time”; being the protagonist Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations with God), along with writer James Twyman.
INDIGO is a film about redemption, grace and healing powers of a new generation of psychic and gifted "Indigo" children. This film narrates the story of a family that makes three fatal choices that end up in bankruptcy, prison, and the total dissolution of the family. Through the powers of psychic healing of the youngest member of the family, -Grace, a ten-year- old "Indigo" girl- finally the family has an opportunity.
INDIGO, the film, is about accepting responsibility for whatever we choose. It’s about the fine line that separates success from failure, and love from repentance. With this brief summary, I want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that we all can choose for love and happiness. These types of movies just remind us what we are. THE TRUTH OF WHAT WEARE IS INALTERABLE.
That is my commitment to me and to all those who want my support. I intend to live from love, non-violence and for that I hand my intentions to GOD.
Until next time my friend and remember: BE HAPPY AND SO MAKE GOD HAPPY TOO. For more information about the movie INDIGO, visit www.serfeliz.com.ve.
