The Harry Potter series: An epic story about the dismantling of the inter-dimensional dark matrices

This is not so much a review of the Harry Potter movies as it is a spiritual analysis of the series in general from my point of view.  Some of my friends told me that the Harry Potter series was very spiritual.  I innocently enjoyed reading the books and viewing the films and never thought about it until I watched the very last film in the Harry Potter series (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hal...

"Mother Earth, you're my life support system. As a soldier I must drink your blue water, live inside your red clay and eat your green skin. Help me to balance myself. As you hold in balance, the Earth, the sea, and the space environments. Help me to open my heart, knowing that the Universe will feed me.

An example of how things are getting better.

I heard that the Mad Men TV show on AMC was hard to watch because it was so sexist.  So I had to see what it was all about.  I started with the first episode, got hooked and saw all three seasons.  I'm looking forward with baited breath to see the 4th season.

HEREAFTER - An Underappreciated Spiritual Film

Posted by Jean Jessup on Thursday, February 24, 2011, In : Drama 


Hereafter - a visceral experience in interconnectedness and a tale of taking a stand in spreading the truth about spirituality. 

I was surprised at the critic's lukewarm reception of Clint Eastwood's latest film as a director.  I think one reason is that the film was marketed as a supernatural thriller involving three characters, rather than a spiritual journey of three characters whose lives intertwine to help each other grow into their empowerment.  I guess I would find it rather boring if ...
