    I'm cross posting this from the Draw your sword, things are about to get real thread with many thanks to Onawah.

    Films can be a very powerful medium to convey universal truths and A Hidden Life is no exception to this. It is chock full of universal truths but what makes this film even more extraordinary is that it is based upon a real life event.

    It is about an Austrian farmer living in the time of war-time Germany who refuses to pledge his allegiance to Hitler. There is no happy Hollywood ending to this story but it is a message about courage, truth, inner-strength, connection to spirit and a conviction of the heart.

    I don't think I've ever seen a film quite like this in terms of the way it was filmed. The backdrop of nature, the way it was directed and the credible way in which the actors emote is nothing short of magnificent.

    In a time where there is so much confusion, this movie can provide clarity.

    This fascinating documentary made in 2002, explores the supernatural abilities of a yogi who has performed a Fire Ritual for a total of 1000 days over the last 45 years. The yogi uses a particular breathing technique to be at One with the element of Fire.

    Imagine if we were all at One with nature? What might the possibilities be?

    What is interesting is that the Yogi, weighing a mere 94 pounds (43 kilos), has been able to survive on only two bananas and a glass of milk with a few drops of water, twice a day for the last 28 years. Food is just one of the ways we can receive sustenance.

    Lerdsila, a Muay Thai boxer, has lightening fast reflexes. What is it about this boxer's being that has provided him with the ability to be so fast? He mentions in this video why he is able to maintain a constant state of grace and flow, effortlessly responding to his opponents - spontaneous and yet always in the present moment, relaxed and happy in the boxing ring.

    Universal Ho’oponopono is a new perspective of the traditional Hawaiian healing practice Ho’oponopono, which means “to make right”, or return to The Natural State. This powerful technique can be used to heal any individual, a collective or All, which makes it one of the most effective methods on Earth today.

    Mind control in a different way than you know it. Confronting what is going on in the mind.

    Joe Marshalla is a philosopher who has created a new model and system for humanity to bring itself into balance.

    He endeavours to share the mechanism of how the brain works, how we formulate thought, the current conditions of the brain and then what we can do about it. His intention is to share how we can truly understand ourselves and each other.

    His quest to understand life began at the age of 13 when he had a car accident and had his first out-of-body experience.

    During this talk, it was mentioned that the three most devastating injuries to the body were a sprained ankle, a mammogram, and a root canal. Find out why.

    This is a phenomenal video because it shows you how interconnected the body is. All healing is self-healing.

    The majority of the bananas that feed the world are grown via monoculture crops.

    Monoculture crops are not ideal because they invite pests and disease.

    At a nutritional level there is a lack of nutrients in the soil which creates a deficiency in our diets and at a metaphysical level, monoculturally grown foods are not ideal for us because there is a lack of love, diversity and synergy in the food. Input = output



    Bananas As We Know Them Are Doomed

    The world became fascinated with a boy named Palden Dorje (now named Dharma Sangha Guru), who was planning to meditate in the jungles in the hollow of a tree in Nepal for 6 years. It has been said that he spent nine months without eating or drinking. At one stage, he spontaneously combusted, burning off the clothes he was wearing.

    This is Sam Harris at his finest. Here he is sharing about what he calls, The Delusion of freewill. Science, neuroscience and philosophy comes together here as he provides a compelling argument for why there is no such thing as freewill.

    As Sam says, this subject touches upon everything we care about.

    At one point he says, If you can't control your next thought and you don't know what it's going to be until it appears, where is your freedom of will?

    Freewill and the brain.

    This is an excellent and earnest discussion between Robert Sapolsky, a neuroscientist at Stanford University and actor Alan Alda, around the brain and the law.

    The first five minutes of the conversation begins with Robert sharing that whenever we are making any moral decisions or moral judgements that these are actually post hoc justifications for things that subliminally our brains knew long before we consciously headed in that direction.

    Our capacity to regulate our behaviours as adults begins with the health and wellbeing of our frontal cortex. The thickness and development of our frontal cortex is determined by two factors. The first being the health and the wellbeing of the mother whilst we are inutero, and the second being parental and environmental influences in early childhood.

    Robert says that the term 'responsibility' almost becomes irrelevant if someone cannot regulate their behaviours due to an undeveloped frontal cortex. He implies that you cannot make someone responsible if they cannot regulate their behavior any more than you could hold someone responsible for something that they had nothing to do with the making of, eg. the shape of their cheekbones.

    He went on to say that it doesn't change in the slightest, the need to protect people from those who cannot regulate themselves, the need to protect the offenders themselves or the need for deterrents but what has to be completely removed from the table are concepts like evil. There are types of brain damage where somebody can tell you precisely what are the appropriate behaviours to do eg. the solving of a puzzle or what you should or shouldn't do to your fellow human and yet still be unable to regulate their own behaviours. Robert says that these things need to be taken into account.

    The first scene in the movie is filmed in Hallein region in Austria.I recognized it by that saddle shape of those two mountains.Over them is German-Austrian border and also Berchtesgaden...


    If I could repair an old computer I could add more personal images from that area...

    My wife worked in Hallein taking care of an old lady,former room maid at Hitler's Berchtesgaden.

    And she eat a HUGE ice cream with a very dear Austrian friends on Rossfeld Panorama strasse

    If you haven't already seen this presentation, I won't spoil it for you with an introduction because it is one of those things that has to unfold in order to have the fullest appreciation of. However, what I will share is that the implications for what was discovered in these studies were profound.

    That feels much better. . Thank you Frank and Mods

    Whilst I have been humbly grateful for the opportunity to trial this experiment with this thread, it was starting to feel like a bit of an echo chamber as it was and I have to admit that I infinitely prefer for people to have the opportunity to share all of their inspirations with myself and each other on the one thread. I like that organic, intuitive feel where people can build upon their inspirations.
