Crisis of Consciousness

Bruce Weaver an independent filmmaker journeys into the dream world to paint a picture of our future. “Seeds Of Change” is a message and a warning from those who have a vision of tomorrow. While seemingly bleak with honesty and truth of what we face it is time to face the reality of the situation.

We are facing more than just a Global Warming crisis we are facing a crisis in consciousness. We are truly on the brink and the fruit of our seed is something that is needed more than ever from each and every one of us. We must rise to this occasion now.

Our guest speakers include Dr. John Todd, Dr. Brian Natrrass and Dr. Peter Russell who help explain the situation we are in and some solutions to our problems. This tapestry of a visual graffiti art from the dreamworld intertwined with our speakers and a simulating meditative audio track by renowned shaman musician Byron Metcalf take us on a compelling journey that looks at our situation from many perspectives including visionaries such as Chief Arvol Looking Horse and Jesse Wolf Hardin.

What kind of world are we creating?

We as a civilization and a race of human beings are teetering on the edge of the precipice. We must examine our lack of tolerance for others as well as what we are no longer willing to tolerate from those who do not wish to create a truly awakened world that all can live in harmony and peace.

Are we so asleep that we do not see the writing on the wall. Just as human beings of differing race, color, and religious belief deserve each others respect, which at times requires “tolerance,” or the act of voluntarily choosing to regard others as ourselves, so-to the earth then, deserves the respect of human beings toward her.

At the core of the disharmony we now see on the planet, evidenced by toxic waste being dumped in our water sources, a cocktail of chemical poisons in every breath of air we breath, chemical pesticides sprayed on our food sources, and global warming threatening the balance of the natural world; our home, is the fundamental error in thinking we human beings are separate from earth: Independent, and not interdependent.

Its abundantly clear if one is paying attention at all, human beings have “missed the mark.” In our hubris we have forgotten the earth is our home, and even our mother, as most tribal cultures consider earth to be, and as such, we must repay our mothers with gratitude, respect, and honor for her gift of life

Tolerance as it is defined, tacitly implies the act of voluntarily choosing to accommodating, or “make room for,” the behavior, and/or actions of another which may be different, or in seeming opposition to our own. With this understanding of tolerance, we must also begin to ask ourselves what these images of our planet suffering, at war, and in ill health, reflect to us about ourselves?

At what point will we no longer “tolerate” our actions that belie the truth of our interdependence with earth, one another, and all other organisms within our environment. How long will earth bear the burden of our actions, and how long will we go on acting as if we bear no burden?

We must be the change we want to see in the world.

    And how many words have I got to say

    And how many times will it be this way

    With your arms around the future

    And your back up against the past

    You’re already falling its calling you

    On to face the music

    And the song that is coming through

    You’re already falling

    The one its calling is you

    Each and every heart it seems

    Is bounded by a world of dreams

    Each and every rising sun

    Is greeted by a lonely one

    Wont you tell me again

    Can you feel it?

    He’s a good man, my dad. But I guess he’s gone about as far as he can go… I’ll miss him.

    is probably the only way most people will change. Spiritual consciousness is diminishing and not increasing due to the radical narcissism this culture promotes. But there is no way to fight it — the movement is just too powerful and primal. It’s not just the oligarchy and their hired shamans (PR/Advertising/Mind-control). The “people” are responsible for our collective condition.

    The film urges us to change but offers no dynamic way to do that. Without a philosophical underpinning to what we are trying to say there is no way to present an alternative. In fact, we are stressed and if we go to our center of consciousness what is called in Aikido “one point” we can be connected to the center of ourselves and the universe.

    In short, to create change we must help people to change from the inside out. To contact that center enables us to see that outer events and conditions cannot determine our happiness. Rather than preach having to do without and voluntary simplicity and consuming less and going green and making efforts to limit our lifestyle we need to encourage others to find the treasure within and then go and play with the world.

    I’ve thought about it every which way and there is no alternative to the mystical path. We either move to it in large numbers (we don’t need a majority just say 20% of the people) on that path or we have to take the consequences this decade I suspect.
