If we could hear all frequencies of sound and see all spectrum of light, then we will have different view and deeper understanding of the world that we live in.
Only 5% of the stuff in our universe is made up of normal matter, but that is where most of us put 100% of our focus and attention. This creates an illusion of separateness where we believe we are alone and that when our material body dies, that’s the end. We even call this stuff “matter” because we believe it is all that matters. But, the other 95% of stuff in our universe is made up of energies and a mysterious dark matter, which actually govern our universe, our bodies, our experiences and our lives. This non-material universe can also be called the spiritual universe. As we tap into this spiritual dimension, we start to see how all things are connected, we see relationships, we feel energies, we sense intuition, and we discover the true nature of our mind. Todd Perelmuter takes us on a spiritual journey, from Aloneness to Oneness, where borders and barriers disappear, and open hearts and open minds take hold. It takes us to a place where anger, greed, hatred and fear cease to be, and only love, joy, peace and gratitude remain. Todd Perelmuter studied meditation and mindfulness from world-renowned teachers around the world for over 9 years. Upon his return to the States, he created EastWesticism, a nonprofit dedicated to helping everyone reach their highest potential and lead a peaceful, calm, and stress-free life.
It is a very beautiful narrated movie, delivered a profound life messages. However I can’t totally agree with some parts, such as the concept of oneness, because I haven’t had that experience yet, so don’t know what this “oneness” really feels like. To me this is still an abstract concept, and until I can experience it myself I cannot say I truly understand it. Base on my very shallow knowledge of Buddhism, the experience of oneness has many levels. basically there are four levels in Arahant , and 12 stages in Bodhisattva, the higher the stage the greater achievement. Buddha is the only one that has truly reached oneness with everything in the universe. Again, this is just my own understanding, I haven’t experienced any level of the holy being yet. But I hope this short movie will inspire you to find your own spiritual journey, and find the ultimate truth about life and universe.
May Buddha, God and all holy beings Bless us ALL!
