  1. Thanks a MILLION, CHILDREN OF GOD. I don’t go to movies anymore. I don’t buy books like I did before. Can you imagine how I felt when I saw your books and movies reviews? Every move you make every thing you all do is ordained by GOD. Keep up the good work.
    Love Joy and Peace to all of you. Jai Guru, Vinola
    PS Please post children material also.

  2. If possible I’d like to recommend the movie “La Belle Verte” it’s a French comedy (in english “The Beautiful Green”) that depicts the story of an alien from a planet more advanced then ours coming to visit the earth, in her naive way and pure approach she single out the elements for misery and diseases to be centered in our wrong way of life and the lack of appreciation to the nature and one another.
    Its not so much spiritual as it is fundamental to the spiritual way of living, in communities, growing your own food, exercising the brain, being vegetarian and most of all caring for one another.
    There are some simple yet beautiful lines from this movie that knock me out every time, for example when Mila the alien tries to understand why earth ladies wear lipstick she asks one, tha latter answers her that it’s for being pretty, Mila doesnt understand, the women tries to explain further and says: it’s to be ettractive” Mila is just more confused “towards who?” she askes, “well everyone”, the woman answers “its so that people will love you”, “that must be hard” points out Mila, and the woman looks sad and thoughtful. Seeing as she upset her host, Mila asks about the picture of her husband and children “are these your loved ones?” the women affirms her, “then why arent they wearing lipstick?” askes Mila.
