The Story of Social Movement

Submitted by Open on Thu, 07/09/2015 - 06:27

It's important for the evolving group to remember the awesome power of your being, and that although we are physically dissipated around the world, our energy most certainly is not! It's all about consciousness. Only consciousness can truly change anything, and when we tune into truth, then we give energy to it, that harnesses and accelerates it. So I'd like to bring your attention to some truly great work that's going on out there, done by none other than an old Openhand Friend - Brendon Shoebridge of the film company Smiling Dragonfly.

He of course produced our popular spiritual film 5GATEWAYS, and is currently remastering it...

Many in the evolving community have little or no physical resources. But that doesn't have to stop us. It's no reason why your destiny will not succeed. I remember the day Brendan and I met, in a tea shop in Glastonbury back in 2007. I had a burning yearning to make a film about the Five Gateways, he wanted to make one about Enlightenment. It was a match made in heaven. We got on like a house on fire. The trouble was neither of us had any real funding. But with his enormous experience in the broadcasting industry, Brendan did have great camera equipment, and I had some good ideas. Together we followed the flow, and the flow delivered. It was never easy though, not for a moment. Especially Brendan had to go out on a financial limb, buying the extra equipment he needed, before then quitting a lucrative mainstream job with Sky News. He and his family literally risked their livelihood to make the film, but nevertheless, they buckled up and got on with the job...

  • Brendan you have a heart as big as a bear, and I am eternally grateful!

Since those times, a new form of funding has emerged called 'crowd funding'. It works on the premise that whilst separated we are dissipated, but when we come together and all contribute something to a worthwhile cause, then financial momentum can quickly gather pace. Since 5GATEWAYS, Brendan and his Smiling Dragonfly film company have gone onto make many more films of an ethical nature aimed at elevating consciousness in our world about the things which truly matter. His latest project called The Bentley Effect is about the dreadful injustice of fracking in Australia where he lives. It needs people to stand up against the corporations that are so damaging our living environment. So this is a just and worthy cause. Take a look at their website, watch the trailer, and then if you can, support the project so they can make a full documentary... The Bentley Effect What we do for another, we do for ourselves!

Thanks for this Open. I've shared on Facebook and can only trust that the funding will come through. This is such an important issue, and if everyone could just contribute a bit, then much could be accomplished.

Very cool use of technology - allowing people to be aware of and contribute internationally to projects that will inform the public and catalyze change. Will share! Thank you for putting this on here. Jen

Huge thanks for the great support from Openhand. Eternal gratitude to all the brave souls standing up for what is truly valuable in this life. We are almost finished our crowdfunding campaign for The Bentley Effect project (5 minutes left infact!) and have been thrilled with the support. We're hoping this inspiring story will shine a massive light into the world. Love in action - at its best. At the blockades I witnessed the separation fall away as people from all walks of life came together to defend their deep love for the land and all that is sacred. Wish us luck and stay vigilant - we never saw this coming really but the best of humanity has also revealed itself. Its so important to act. As the proverb goes, 'We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children'. Big love to all.

Hey B,

Greetings *give_rose*
I do trust you'll get all funding you most definitely deserve - you're people with big hearts that the world desperately needs.

Synchronistically, I noticed an uplifting article in today's UK Independent Newspaper, about how fracking could be delayed for up to two years across UK after Lancashire council rejects test drilling. Yihah! Here's the article...

Sending positive vibes your way.

Open *OK*
