The Film Journey
Any life worth living comes with a commitment to fulfill our destiny, our reason for being. This film is my destiny, never any doubt, for I hold passion in my heart to heal the suffering in this world through the illumination of consciousness. I believe we are all here to find our passion, our voice, and in so doing, contribute to the frequency of love on our planet. The power is in our hearts.
This film is one of the most difficult projects I have ever done and the most critical. As I gather footage for my film research from supporters, The Humane Society, PETA and others, I must catch my breath for it is incomprehensible that such barbaric cruelty and utter lack of compassion or empathy for the suffering of these loving souls can exist. It is beyond human understanding.
I am creating a film that speaks the truth at a very deep level that I believe people will want to see, not close their eyes in horror. A spiritual and psychological study of the human condition, the film will elicit a transformation of consciousness through the soul perspective to heal a larger, more expansive nemesis permeating our world and its disconnection in society.
Greed and apathy in corporate America vibrate on the same frequency as violence, cruelty, abuse, lack of empathy or compassion, albeit toward human or animal.
The Occupy Movement has taken a stand against injustice. I must also take a stand for the innocents, for they cannot take a stand for themselves. They can only hope in their hearts that someone will care enough to save them.
The animals are not excluded from justice. They have an inherent right to live on this earth in peace with dignity. Animals have souls, just as we humans do. I believe they are our teachers, our connection with our own souls. They are pure, unconditional love birthed on our planet to heal the underlying disconnection in our society.
Animals are companions, magical creatures of the earth, not commodities. They are sentient beings, capable of responding emotionally, with feeling and perception, rather than intellectually, as we humans do. Their connection to life is on a soul level, not on a physical, superficial level – they will help us evolve our heart value and teach us to live and appreciate life in the present moment.
Gandhi most eloquently expressed it best: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
I struggle to find peace when I know the suffering these precious souls endure – unbearable torment and death without mercy for the sake of fashion, self-aggrandizement, and absorption with ego. I am making this film to awaken consciousness and love on our planet.
The power of respect will change our world.
