SHO DOCS: The Last One Trailer

Bright Light Bright Light & The Pink Singers - Everything I Ever Wanted (for World AIDS Day)

JMG TRAILER: Stained Glass Windows

 Stained Glass Rainbows explores the most controversial subject facing America today: the collision between the LGBT community and the Christian church. Can gays be Christian? Is homosexuality a sin? Is there a gay gene? Is there such a thing as an ex-gay? Both families and churches are being torn apart over these divisive issues. Stained Glass Rainbows brings together the voices of the left, the right, the middle, and helps bridge the gulf through its dialogue. From gay pride parades to anti-gay protests, Stained Glass Rainbows confronts the controversy of faith through the hearts and minds of people on both sides of this uncivil war.

From a privte list: The following was told by Krishnamurti

"You may remember the story of how the devil and his friend were walking down the street, when they saw ahead of them a man swoop down and pick up something from the ground, look at it, and put it away in his pocket.

The friend said to the devil, "What did that man pick up?"

"He picked up a piece of Truth," said the devil.

"That is very bad business for you, then," said his friend.

"Oh, not at all," the devil replied. "I am going to let him organize it."

Flower of the Day: 12/02/14

"As you strive to awaken from the dream of suffering, it is very important to look at the pleasure it brings you. Look at just how much life energy was invested into maintaining certain negative patterns. Subconsciously, we believe that giving up this suffering means giving up pleasure itself."
Sri Prem Baba

Feel Confident | December 2, 2014

You should feel confident: Yes, I can attain enlightenment, I can benefit beings. Here in samsara I can help my family, I can support the sangha and benefit sentient beings. I can do it. I can achieve things, and I can live a joyful, meaningful life.
