Life can be complicated if you let it be.  Manifestations can take over if you allow them to.  For example;  If you work in an office environment with let’s say 4 other people, each person has a different personality and a different level of understanding.  One person might be young and care-free, another may be older and more experienced and grown.  That’s a beautiful opportunity for you to learn from both. However, you can also bring home their problems, worries, negativity and allow them to cause within your immediate space.    Why?

FORT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS

AWARD WINNING DOCUMENTARY UNSEEN FOR 20 YEARS

AUGUST 10, 12, 14 and 15

*******************************

TIBET: A BUDDHIST TRILOGY  AUGUST CINEMATIC EVENT AT CINEMA PARADISO

http://www.tibet-trilogy.com/us/index.html

 

(Fort Lauderdale, FL ) June 12, 2006    The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF) announced today that they will present special showiings of the re-released, recut and digitally restored documentary, TIBET: A BUDDHIST TRILOGY, between August 10 and 15 (schedule below).  The screenings will place take at FLIFF’s year-round art house, Cinema Paradiso, located at 503 SE 6 street in downtown Fort Lauderdale.  Tickets are: $8 general admission, $7 seniors/students, $5 FLIFF Members, with the exception of the Saturday Afternoon Matinee which are $12 General Admission, $10 Students and Seniors and $10 FLIFF members.

The re-release of the acclaimed documentary, by director Graham Coleman, has not been seen in 20 years (1979) and is an epic journey into the heart of a hidden world.  The updated version includes additional material, a new commentary, and has been edited down from its original four hours to a more compact running time, retaining its three-part structure.

Part 1 introduces us to the richness of Tibetan Buddhist culture and observes the Dalai Lama in his dual role as Head of State and spiritual teacher, filming him in his residence in Dharamsal, North India.

The central section of the film generates a vision of Tibetan society previously unseen. Set entirely within the confines of one monastery, in the remote mountain retreats and within the township with the monastery serves, the film follows the lamas of the Sakya Monastery in Boudha, Nepal, as they prepare to perform an ancient protective ritual known as A Beautiful Ornament.

In Part 3, we move to the landscape of Ladakh, following the monks and farmers through their day and ending with a depiction of the monastery’s moving ritual response to a death in the community. The promise is that this is the first time the film is shown as intended. 

Screenings will take place as follows:

  • Thursday, August 10 at 9:00pm
  • Saturday, August 12 at 11:45am / refreshments will be served beginning at 11AM. Buddist Monk, Geshe Konchog Kyab, resident teacher at the Tubten Kunga Center will be our guest speaker, following the screening. 
  • Monday, August 14 at 7:00pm followed by a special screening of the Documentary “PeaceJam”. The award winning documentary includes commentary by 12 Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, including the Dalai Lama
  • Tuesday, 15 at 7:00pm. A film discussion with Lama Karma Chotso, resident teacher at Kagyu Shedrup Choling will follow the screening.  For additional information, showtimes and directions to Cinema Paradiso, please visit our website at www.fliff.com or call 954-525-FILM.

Power and Strength July 19, 2006

Self-esteem is at the very core of all that can and does occur in ones life. Whether or not we pray or dream or set goals  our faith or belief in our own power and ability is essential. Even for those who believe that God answers prayers or that magic is received from the Goddess, it is crucial that in order to receive these gifts the individual must have the POWER and the STRENGTH to stand tall and allow the blessings into his/her life.
Power of LoveIt is a common fact that just when we need changes in our lives the most; we are at our weakest point. Therefore inner strength may be our first concern. With a strong, positive outlook and a faith in our own ability to shape our lives we can attract the best of life to ourselves and to others. We can attract the power of the universe, which will in turn empower us to create our own reality.
However, many of us have been raised by society to believe that it is our first responsibility to make others happy. We mistakenly believe that our achievements are not for ourselves, but for our parents or teachers or lovers or children. Over time as we try to please others more and more, we lose sight of what it is that we need or want and we allow decisions be made for us. It begins with pleasing those we love and it continues as we concern ourselves with how we look and act, which car we drive, what we do for a living, where we live, etc. Through the process of trying to be whatever we believe is socially acceptable, we fashion ourselves into the person that others have decided we should be. Gradually we lose our sense of self. We no longer know who we truly are. We are unable to make ourselves happy. We dont understand why we are so good at pleasing others and bringing happiness to others without being able to do the same for ourselves.Strength
Self-empowerment is essential to personal happiness. It is important to let go of the needs and desires of our partners or family members or co-workers. We must look within and respect our own needs and opinions. You are your first responsibility. You cannot help others if you are not strong.
It is your turn to raise your personal power and to achieve all that you are able to achieve. Remember that at the basis of all magical pursuit are the STRENGTH of belief and the POWER of conviction. You deserve a good life. You deserve love, peace, and prosperity.

Love….lov..luv…lv.. July 18, 2006

Most of us will agree that life without love would be unbearable. Certainly love is one of life’s most precious gifts and is worth holding onto.
   When the object of our affection is either unaware, uninterested, or no longer able to return our love, it can be very upsetting, even debilitating. We may feel that our one chance or our best chance at love is lost. That no other can replace him/her. That in losing the love of this person, we, ourselves are less than whole. We may feel incomplete. Our appetite may be diminished. The world is no longer the wonderfully happy and safe place that we once knew it to be.
   At this point the temptation is to do what it takes to bend the will of the one we love to love us in return. In order to recapture what we have lost, we feel the need to change his/her feelings and thoughts. To return the affections that were once directed lovingly towards us.
   Some say that this type of behavior is ethically wrong. We were each given free will and the ability to choose our own destiny. To alter someone’s chosen path could result in all sorts of karmic struggle for them, for us, and for others who may have been destined to meet and fall in love with us at some future date.
   The Divine Universe aids to solve the problem differently. At the root of this dilemma is the feeling that love is lost. To replace the emptiness, to evoke a happier outlook, and to lighten the soul, there is no better solution than to gather and attract love, in its purest form, back into our lives! We need to fill our hearts and pathways with love and light and never be without it again. To manifest love and all its riches.
