Is it by eating more potassium rich foods or eating lots of yummy chocolate? Is it by losing a few pounds or taking long walks? Or maybe it’s just by trying to avoid stress?
No, guess again. I just watched a documentary entitled the The Power of Forgiveness. In it was an example of a test they are doing to prove it lowers blood pressure, which means that an effective way to lower your blood pressure is to FORGIVE.
It comes up in casual conversation: Seen any good movies lately? As a matter of fact, I have. I did some thinking about the movies that I have found the most compelling, the most uplifting and the most truthful. They all illustrate some universal aspect of life and, of course, they’re entertaining.
Here’s my Top 10 Spiritual Movies…
1 As It Is in Heaven (By far the best)
3 Peaceful Warrior
4 Groundhog Day
5 The Legend of Bagger Vance
7 Field of Dreams
8 Seven Years in Tibet

Did you notice perfectionists have an unusual amount of fear of making mistakes, never really think about going for their dreams, and forget about having fun.

If we would focus on making someone else’s day a little better in some way, then we wouldn’t waste time being self-absorbed in efforts to build our own self-esteem. It would happen naturally.
In our quest to be more, do more and be recognized, we may sidestep or ignore the people right in front of us. They, too, are seeking joy and contentment. Imagine if we could give that which we seek. We could keep abundance flowing through our lives.

I just rented “ As it is in Heaven” for the second time and will probably see it again and again. It is the deepest and most progressive movie I’ve seen and I see a lot of movies. It is packed with in-depth, courageous and insightful messages. I stopped counting at 24 and I am sure when I see it again, I will find more.
This was a Swedish movie with English subtitles and it didn’t faze me. Rather, reading what was said provided clarity so I could absorb the points that were conveyed. A couple of times I had to pause the movie, having a hard time believing they had the guts to bring concepts out in the open like, “There is no sin. The churches made it up.”
If we would all take time in the morning before we start our day and recognize the things we are grateful for, think positive thoughts and essentially build ourselves up, the day would be more enjoyable and we would accomplish a lot more.
I wouldn’t be surprised if every person who has ever done great things hasn’t gotten up most mornings and had this type of positive attitude, but maybe not standing on the sink.
