the best spiritual movie I saw in the last time
it is Messiah on Netflix. What kind of challanges would face in our modern world a man with the absolute faith in devine call and what kind of challenges would face the resy of the world in taking him seriously ? It was shot before the COVID time but it reflects a lot about what is going on now!!! Great serie.
Powerful. Emma Thompson stars as a single-minded English professor who finds enlightenment through her struggle with cancer.
It's lovely Jennaya - transcends words!
Battle cry for the dispossessed
I just saw Ken's Loach's profoundly moving film "I, Daniel, Blake" which the Guardian's film reviewer calls the battle cry for the dispossessed.
I relate very personally to this film. Through sudden job losses and an unexpected health crisis, my husband and I landed in the 'system' when our children were young, so I know how it feels to sit across from a bureaucrat, praying inside for mercy. Thankfully, my prayer was answered, unlike Daniel Blake's. Having walked a mile in their shoes, I became a much stronger advocate for clients when I subsequently worked in the social service sector. And I was able to serve with greater compassion and understanding.
This film blows your heart open.
Mad as Hell
So feeling the "Mad as Hell" vibes expressed in this classic scene from the 1976 Oscar-winning film "Network" that came to me in the wee hours of the morning!
Peace, baby! ;)
Felt to copy my Facebook post here in the Openhand forum. "Just saw the film Wonder Woman. Triumphant & joyous female narrative. A superhero woman. Directed by a woman. Diana. Amazon warrior. Sexy Protector of Love. No shame. No gender boundaries. Everyone is equal. Everyone is empowered. Mazel Tov."
Feminine power. Ramping up. It's time. Yihah!
That's awesome Trinity! Had a purely magical day so that is fitting =). yes, big smiles - loved the grandma too...I feel like I would be that lady in the tribe! With love, Jen
Moana - Know who you are
Just watched the animated film "Moana" with my kids...if you haven't seen it - it is truly beautiful! It definitely has it's purely silly parts that were a good laugh, but the scene at the end "when the heart is restored" is so incredibly beautiful and touching. The general premise depicts an island village that has stopped exploring, that protects it's safety above all else...the heart of the island has been stolen so that man could create in his own way and the island is now dying. The ocean calls to the cheif's daughter to retrieve the man who stole it and together restore the heart of the land. I would post it here, but don't want to spoil it for others, but if you probably won't watch the whole movie, here is the link...
...so many powerful messages in this film.
The words to the song in the clip above, rippled love and recognition through me. <3 Enjoy.... Love, Jen
I have crossed the horizon to find you
I know your name
They have stolen the heart from inside you
But this does not define you
This is not who you are
You know who you are
Chief Bromden Breaks Through
Love the book by Ken Kesey and the film, especially the final scene with Chief Bromden smashing through the prison window, breaking free. One of the best endings ever!
With Open's Breakthrough tour about to launch, felt like a good time to share this heart-soaring scene from "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest". Let's go.
Midnight Special - spiritual film
I saw Midnight Special at the cinema last night. It's about an 8 year old boy, who although he has human form, is from another world & has special powers. He doesn't feel that he belongs here on Planet Earth, & eventually connects with light beings of his own kind, from elsewhere in the universe. As a starseed, I identified with some of the themes in this filn, & found it very moving & inspiring. Here's the link to the trailer on YouTube:
An absolute wonderful movie about the importance of being positive and acknowledging your emotions even sadness.
Lady in a van
I went to see "Lady in a van" last night and it was deeper than I anticipated from the trailer. It had some funny moments, though it was also quite sad in parts, it spoke to me of what can happen when you deny aspects of your soul and how experiences can shut us down.
A forty year old golden oldie..it is unbelievable.
"Always" is one of my very favourite movies, made in the 1980's -- starring Richard Dreyfuss and Holly Hunter and directed by Steven Spielberg. It has adventure, sadness, and comedy, but mostly it's a profoundly moving love story that speaks to setting our loved ones free if we truly love them. Sniff, sniff... I always get out the kleenex for this one. Here are a few scenes from the film. x Catherine
Edge of Tomorrow
Ready to expand your mind? Our spirituality needs to broaden. Imagine you're in an interdimensional war zone - because when you connect deeply through all the layers you'll find you are! Imagine you're continually reborn until you find the completeness of who you are, with all your facets, gifts and skills. Imagine your twin flame is there helping you along the path. It's all there metaphored wonderfully in the new film "Edge of Tomorrow". If there's attachment to peace and bliss, forget it. But if you're also activating the warrior in you, then you could really enjoy this one. "Let me tell your a story. At first, it's going to sound ridiculous!"....
One of the best movies I've watched, and I think there is no one actual subject it doesn't touch and invite to reflect on. Realizations rain... Simply amazing.
Just a quick share.
I would like to draw your attention to a new series a friend recommended to me. Although most of us probably have neither HBO nor any other TV-subscription, the plot may sound interesting to some of us.
"The Leftovers takes place in the wake of a global "Rapture"—which may or may not be the Biblical rapture—and centers on the people who didn’t make the cut that are left behind in a suburban community."
All of a sudden, 2 % of the world's population disappears from the streets, without a trace...
Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain is
Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain is an upcoming historical-drama film set amidst the real-life Bhopal disaster that had occurred in India on December 2--3, 1984. A disaster that had claimed thousands of lives and is still causing health problems for those people in the surrounding region.
I almost said I was surprised The Matrix wasn't mentioned, which is probably the most spiritual movie I have seen without being that on the surface, but then I saw it did come up.
Most of my favourite movies have been already mentioned, but what I haven't seen in the above list and I would highly recommend is Ink, a 2009 American independent movie, categorized as action/fantasy/sci-fi. I won't go into further details because I don't want to spoil it, let it be enough that it is a powerful story put onto film in a powerful way. (I find it especially impressive conidering it was written by, directed by and the soundtrack composed by the same guy)
(PS I deliberately didn't post link for the trailer because trailers almost always just ruin the movie experience)
The Wolves and the Ravens
Charlotte - thanks for this lovely song recommendation from "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" called "The Wolves and the Ravens" by Rogue Valley. I can see why you like it...
Thanks for Wolves and Ravens
In reply to The Wolves and the Ravens by Open
Not sure if it's the lyrics, the tune, or just the energy that comes through the song, but some songs seem to weave a space right inside and this is certainly one of those! Totally loved it - thank you for sharing Charlotte and Open. Beautiful =)
Have not yet seen the movie, but it's now on the top of the list - thanks!!
Hello! I came across this post and can't help but write that I too LOVED the movie "Secret life of Walter Mitty". When I left the cinema I felt so uplifted in spirit. The band Rogue Valley has a beautiful song in "Walter Mitty" called "The wolves and the ravens". I listened to it over and over after the movie, and then discovered more songs from them.
I will definitely watch Kate Perrys Firework. :) Thank you for the tip.
In reply to Loved it by charlotte p
Charlotte, I felt exactly the same after having seen the film. Definitely raises your vibration.
I suggest also 'Dirty Paws' from the Walter Mitty OST, from Monsters and Men.
To those having personal experiences with fourth dimensional entities, I recommend this short detail from the film 'Spiderman 3' (where Spiderman is desperately trying to get rid of an extraterrestial sticky black symbiote, which has fundamentally altered his personality. During the process he's using a bell which, I suspect may be a metaphor for higher vibration.
I'm glad you liked it
I am really glad you liked the film Martin. It was indeed intended for the heart. I just knew at the first moment I saw the trailer that this film would carry a very important message for me. I was right, yet I was blown by the complex, multilayered nature of it. And its message, highlighted above, cannot be a 'coincidence' I think, it is so accurately elaborated, with too much analogies. Something similiar to Kubrick's classic, Space Odissey 2001 in this respect. Much more consumable art I admit but these are different times.
An other type of contemporary art that conveys spiritual message is of course pop music videos, something that Open provides great examples for here on the website. A classic one among others is Katy Perry's Firework, that was shot in my hometown Budapest. Katy Perry says it is about self-esteem. Well, without wanting to read too much into its lyrics, it may be about a bit more than that...:)
I've just watched Gladiator
I've just watched Gladiator again. A really powerful film about the great challenge mankind have had between following the soul or the ego. So emotionally strong film that makes me fully understand what great forces that are fighting inside of humankind in order to finally align to the source.
Benevolence speaking in film
Yes my attention has been drawn the significance of the film Mark - but I especially like your take on it.
Make no mistake, benevolence is speaking strongly to all people right now and in a multitude of ways. Film is one way of connecting deeply to the soul and planting a message. I'd say this is one of those powerful messages.
I look forwards to seeing it - thanks
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
I would recommend The Secret Life of Walter Mitty...I think it has an extremely profound spiritual message. In my view, much deeper than it is generally understood (this film is widely considered as one about some 'midlife crisis').
Just think about it..W.M. is the 'little guy' a negative asset manager at LIFE Magazine. They are preparing the last issue of LIFE as it is going online afterwards: so that LIFE will never be the same again. A huge change is coming at LIFE. The old, tangible edition will cease to exist... There's also a downsizing at the company: not everyone can step through the gate of the new LIFE...
Here comes Sean O'Connel, the mysterious photographer in the picture (a photographer, in my view, first and foremost is the master of lights and shadows). No one has ever seen him. He constantly travels around the world, hence being 'omnipresent'. He communicates with people only through signs hidden in his pictures. A perfect alter ego for God. He captures the "Quintessence" of Life, which eventually sends Walter Mitty (or, in my understanding, Mankind) back to the cover of LIFE. Before this, following a worldwide search, the two finally meet in the Himalayas (where else).
Well, if this movie is not about the shift of human consciousness, then I really don't know what is..:) Anyway, the film is full of spiritual hints. Let alone the constant switches of 'dream' and 'awake' states of Walter Mitty during the film.
Ohh. I saw "Walther Mitty" it
In reply to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by Mark72
Ohh. I saw "Walther Mitty" it and loved it from the depth of my heart without realising specifically why. Thanks Mark for pointing it out! So right on target!
The latest offering from the Wachowski twins
Looks like a meaty, very OC, concept to it.
I'm very late in responding to this forum, but I just discovered Openhand a couple of weeks ago. Many of these films I knew and agree. This clip is, to me, the best visual of what ''faith'' actually is that I have ever seen....the 'leap of faith'' in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. And today, as a viewed it again, I believe that Openhand is represented by Harrison Ford throwing dust on the path so it will be visible to those following. That is what your mission seems like to me, and what it has meant to me. TO me, Ascension was/is a surrender into a leap of faith. Nobody really knew what lay ahead. We are learning as we go, and from those path-showers who go before us. And my eternal soul-mate of all time elected to remain in 3rd D, not wanting to take a chance on leaving career, parents,possessions the promise of a life everyone expects of him. So I'm on the path alone...not alone...but painful still 2 months after he left. His path is his own to choose and I am becoming more unconditionally peaceful about it. I'm so grateful for the 'dust on the bridge' from 3rd D densities to the unconditional LOVE-LIGHT of the higher frequencies. Thank you, Open and Trinity, and to all of you in community together with them.
Words of director Alfonso Cuaron: "You have a character who's drifting into the void and is getting farther and farther away from human communication. It's a character that lives in her own bubble and is a victim of her own inertia. So it was a moment in which she has to come out of her own bubble and metaphorically shed her skin. She gets out of that suit and soon she's in her primordial state. The film deals with rebirth, and this is the first hint of that - the first moment that it's done visually in a more explicit way. This is a character who's been surrounded by death and, on the verge of it, finally finds peace and repose."
I went to see it without seeing the trailer, and I recommend not to. Amazing...
I see the conexion
Yes a feel the conexion. I take the opportunity agian to thank the Universe to be able to count with the articles, videos and especially the guided meditations that OPEN and Trinty lovingly share with us.
You have to know that many souls are inspiring and healed healed with your message!!!
Loved the documentary too, thanks John.
Inspiring how Reynolds motives came across in it.
This page seemed to disappear off the website for a couple of days after watching just half of it. I patiently waited to watch the rest, and interestingly the page came back when you posted the Noah link Open...so they appear linked both metaphorically and technologically!
Do you see the connection between the Earthships and the Noah metaphor? Can you feel the metaphor? It's a big one!
Working for the Light
THX Myra. Is wonderful to see how people are working for the LIGHT in different aspect.
Love & Blessings
Thank you John following... for the utube connection. What an amazing guy Reynolds is and what a wonderfully inspiring film. I loved it.
with love Myra x
Noah - the movie epic
Was sitting here feeling something. Couldn't define it. Then this came to me. Looks awesome!...
For 30 years New Mexico-based Reynolds and his green disciples have devoted their time to advancing the art of "Earthship Biotecture" by building self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony. However, these experimental structures that defy state standards create conflict between Reynolds and the authorities, who are backed by big business.
I really loved this one. Apart from being light, funny and silly, it also carries a very important message (very relevant for me these days). The movie is a metaphor. You know, going back in time until... you don't need or want to anymore :)
Have any of you guys seen this? Best movie I have seen in a while. It touches on everything from reincarnational lives, karma, help from galactics, illuminati and TRUTH. Must see!
I find that I don't watch 'movies' like I used to anymore. It has become just like life, like any situation, another tool of self-realisation. I find that if I look through , then there is always some gift in almost any movie I watch.
And I agree, that recently movies have become more and more reflecting the 'real' world hiding behind the world visible to most people's eyes, and, funnily, they seem to look more and more surreal.
I believe that human mind can't come up with something that doesn't already exist on some level, it just picks on these things that we know somewhere deep inside and distorts them.
I found that most things that I have ever seen in movies, read about in books, all these things exist, they are just often misinterpreted, added some emotional cloud, and some physical form, that doesn't necessarily describes the energetic form well. But they exist in their 'real' form.
So now watching movies (especially those that seem most impossible and unreal) and reading books, including fantasy books, bring me much more than just some entertainment and fun. I enjoy them on a deep level, learn from them both about myself and the surrounding reality.
One of the movies I really enjoyed recently was Stardust, full of metaphors and messages, cute and heartwarming one. Thank you, Ben :)
I haven't watched Superman yet, but I surely will, as just today I was talking about my hardships with not fitting here and learning to accept that I am an 'alien' here hhh and realising that I can never be 'really' human. So I am really curious and looking forward to see it now :)
Metaphorical message in the "Man of Steel"
I'm surprised why no one has listed the latest Superman movie here yet. Trinity and myself watched it a few weeks back. If you drop through the obvious surface level hype, it's a thoroughly entertaining film with many deep metaphors.
For me the most powerful was that of not fitting in, not being accepted. This is a part I've not seen in previous Superman movies. It mirrors the struggle for acceptance in many star souls.
There's also the crumbled world he came from and the Opposing Consciousness that then pursued him, what their agenda here on Earth is.
I always find that if I read between the lines of today's popular movies, because consciousness is bubbling to the surface, there are rich seams of metaphor that we can each benefit from.
This movie was like a mirror of me and helped me free myself. It is of unknown depth.
I watched Powder (1995) in
I watched Powder (1995) in the week....a simple but profoundly beautiful film!...There were tears :)
Wow - there is so much new Openhand stuff, I can hardly keep up and now lots of fabulous films to watch - thank you every one. Lots of love and hugs Myra x
Yes, practically every human has been occupied.
"almost every human has been successfully occupied."
first sentence and I lost myself in the realness of this movie.
She is a real "Warrior of light".
