Spiritual Movie Review:
The Matrix

The Matrix 
Not just an action flick, this film is replete with
spiritual metaphors and subtle messages. Neo (an
acronym for "One") finds himself falling down the
proverbial rabbit hole as he learns the true nature of

He is believed to be the one who can break the system
(aka "The Matrix") but he has to go through many
trials and tribulations before he can even come close
to reaching that state. Some would say this film shows what it may take to release the ego, but you will have to make that discernment yourself, if you so desire.

If you don't like action movies or violence, then you can
either fast-forward through some of those scenes or put it on mute and read the subtitles. Actually, after you watch it at least once, I recommend re-watching it with the sub-titles because there's so much spiritual depth to this movie it's nearly impossible to get it all in just one viewing, let alone several.

This movie is definitely one of the best-kept secrets for spiritual movies in the last decade. Be sure to also check out the other two movies as they go deeper down the proverbial rabbit hole.

Spiritual Book Review:
Happy Soul Industry by Steffan Postaer

  Spiritual Book: Happy Soul Industry
This is not your typical spiritual book. The plot begins with God realizing she is in trouble because the world has lost its "goodness." As a result, God sends an angel to start an advertising campaign to help the world become more good. Be forewarned, however, if you're offended by swear words, sex, or drugs, or the suggestion that God is female, then this book is not for you.

I did find the book to be a rather quick and sometimes enjoyable read. There are some meaningful messages in the story that are about as obvious as getting hit in the head with a brick. That's mostly because characters and/or the narrator explicitly state most of (not all) the messages rather than inferring them for the reader to gain personal insight from. In that way, I wish the messages were less obvious and the book allowed the reader to discover them on their own.

Though I wouldn't recommend this book for the general spiritual seeker, for those people who like to read spirituality with a debaucherous twist then this book is probably a good fit.
