A great film by author Simon G Powell, one of our Serious Wonder contributors. A positive movie full of inspiration. Quite refreshing considering the fear mongering, CIA witch hunting, “elites are gonna eat our babies”, “I’ve got the truth right over here”, conspiracy junkies that love a good “splitting” session. Splitting in psychology terms is when a person thinks in “black and white”… things are all bad or all good. These are the same people who love to pit one side against another. Guess what..life is complicated, people are complicated and we all have the potential to be the monster we fear and the purity we chase.
I have been following a “splitting” session that Simon has been pulled into this week and I must say the instigators are so transparent that one has to wonder how anyone takes them seriously! The sources of this fear mongering paranoia are inconsequential at best and at worst a danger to the mental health of anyone who would give these “paranoiasites” the time of day.
The growing “Americanoia” that has allowed these dark sources to emerge should point out the obvious. The Internet as well as society act as a mirror and we often see what is inside our own consciousness. I choose, as Simon does, to see the world as positive, emergent and extraordinary. Anyone that has experimented with psychedelics, mushroom or Ayahuasca typically comes out the other end with a new understanding of themselves, a deeper grasp of compassion and a richer understanding of empathy. If not….you just never had these qualities in the first place.
