DECODING DEEPAK: A movie review by Brad Warner, author of THERE IS NO GOD AND HE’S ALWAYS WITH YOU
By Samy AbulEla

The other night I was home alone and came across a film called Decoding Deepak on Netflix.

I had heard of the movie and was pretty intrigued by its premise. Deepak’s son, Gotham — who names their kid Gotham? — is an aspiring filmmaker. As a youngster little Gotham Chopra was groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps and presented to the world as the heir apparent to Deepak’s Guru-to-the-Stars mantle. But he grew disillusioned with that and decided to make his own way in the world.

While working with his dad on what was initially supposed to be something like Deepak’s version of What the Bleep Do We Know!?, Gotham instead decided to make a documentary about the difference between the Deepak the world either praises as a famous wise guru or derides as a New Age clown, and the Deepak he knew as his often-absent dad who never seemed to know when to just shut the heck up.(READ MORE)

MYTHOLOGY & THE UNCONSCIOUS by guest blogger Alanna Kaivalya, author of SACRED SOUND
By Samy AbulEla

The infinite is indeed within. Deep in our own psyche — within everyone’s psyche — lives the framework of the human journey. These structural archetypes are the substructure of thousands of years of our collective hopes, dreams, desires, failures, and fears. These archetypal, shared experiences of the collective unconscious provide a common architecture for the stories — that is, the myths — we tell ourselves about our humanity, about our struggles and triumphs. When dressed up, brought to life, and vivified through our imagination, our mythic stories allow us to witness what is deeply inside us at play in front of us. Myths give us the context and the capability to bring our inner world out.

HEAVEN IS REAL: A movie review by Echo Bodine, author of WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DIE
By Samy AbulEla

Last night I saw the new movie Heaven Is for Real, and I was very touched by it. It’s the story of a four-year-old boy named Colton Burpo who went to heaven when his body was being operated on and came back to share his experiences with his family. This may sound sweet and innocent, like a child with a great imagination, but this young boy actually had this experience, and it turned quite a few lives upside down.

His father just happens to be the pastor of a local church, and watching his struggles with Colton’s accounts of heaven reminded me of the consciousness of our planet. The reaction of the parishioners compounded the confusion and anger about this little boy’s experience. It was eye-opening for me because I’ve become so ingrained in the belief that there is life after death and that heaven is the most beautiful safe place that we will ever experience. That was one of Colton’s comments: “No one will hurt me here.”
