Where Are the Spiritual Films?
As the title of the article mentions, I wonder if there are people like me out there that want more out of their films than what Hollywood typically delivers.
How many explosions and car chases do we really need to see?
How many “end of the world” movies do we have to be subjected to?
Is this a reflection of a violent people? Or is it possible that the films that speak to our hearts and souls are, out there, waiting to be found?
As more and more people wake up, they are discovering that they want more out of their films than what is typically advertised in the media.
Our souls long for something that is inspiring and uplifting. We want to feel connected to God, each other, as well as to our self.
Spiritual films give us hope. The magic that they show on the screen is a reminder of the magic and wonder that exists within us.
We can choose to ignore the “doom and gloom” that Hollywood wants us to spend our hard earned money on and direct our attention to something that is transformational.
It is very important to know that we have a choice in the manner. What we spend our money on is a vote. Why not spend your time and money on something that is valuable to your soul?
Family Friendly Films
Many of the spiritual films out there are geared for the entire family. If it is not, it will usually be indicated. Parents should do their research to make sure the film is appropriate for their child.
Some of the most memorable movies I have seen were family films!
More than Entertainment
Spiritual films go far beyond just entertaining its audience and delves into deeper material that has the potential to raise the consciousness of the individual, as well as the planet. Instead of watching films to escape reality, these powerful films spark intelligent conversations.
