Last Tuesday, I posted a video of Dr. Bruce Lipton. I was ecstatic to share my discovery of a new kind of scientist – one who is bridging the gap between traditional science and spirituality. A couple of weeks before that, I let John Styn tell you about his amazing, wise and fully connected Grandpa.
Those videos were so well received, I thought I’d make it more of a regular thing for me to post some of the resources and videos I’ve found which have made me jump out of my chair and do a happy dance. And today, I’ve got another HUGE treat for you.
Foster Gamble had a vision when he was 14 years old. He perceived what he believed to be the Universe’s fundamental energy pattern. It’s the Torus, a kind of spherical shape with a donut hole in the middle that surrounds everything, including each of us and the earth. When I first watched this documentary, I did nearly fall out of my chair. I’d have a very similar vision one night during a shamanic ceremony when I was in Peru. I saw the Torus surrounding us and even learned to work with it (which, incidentally, helped me to become WAY more intuitive and yes, I promise to write about this later. Later = when I’m inspired to and no, begging won’t speed it up. Talk to the Universe, I don’t control when what comes through.) When I began to research the shape (I had no idea what it was called), I realized that this information wasn’t new, but thousands of years old, which didn’t diminish my excitement about it one bit.
Anywho, that vision sent young Foster off on a lifelong quest to study this energy and how it could be used, as well as why, as a human race, we weren’t thriving the way he intuitively felt we could be. Thrive, the documentary, was the result.
A little Warning
Now, I will warn you: a large part of this film is dedicated to what’s wrong with the world today. It does go into all the conspiracy theories (like how the money system actually works and how we are being kept in the dark on, well, just about everything), and for those of you who’ve seen some of those other documentaries, you may be thinking “déjà-freaking-vu”.
However, there’s one HUGE difference between this documentary and the others that deal with unmasking the “truth”. The last twenty or so minutes of this movie are entirely dedicated to solutions – what’s going well, how powerful we actually are, and how we can stop what’s happening and reverse the damage. The movie isn’t designed to get you down and depress you. It defines the problem and then shifts to the solution. It’s full of hope and inspiration. Instead of showing you the problem and leaving you thinking “Ok, so we’re screwed! What can we possibly do?”, the move actually answers that question in the best possible way.
LOA in action
I adore the fact that this movie focuses so heavily on how powerful we are, and on the change we can make simply by focusing differently. Then, the filmmakers actually help us do that. It’s pure, unadulterated, real world awesomeness with practical applications thrown in. Freaking hell yes! Although I discovered this documentary quite some time ago, it’s only recently come to my attention (thank you super awesome John. Again!) that the whole movie is now available on YouTube (put there legally by the filmmakers themselves).
Yes, it’s a 2 hour video, so no, I don’t expect you to watch it right this second. But, do yourself a humongous favor and make yourself a bowl of non-GMO popcorn later tonight, pull up a chair and watch Thrive. Oh, and then come back here and tell me what you thought. Ready? Here we go:
