Spiritual Movie Review:
Peace One Day

Peace One Day 
On the surface, Peace One Day looks like just another documentary of a dreamer who succeeds in accomplishing his intened goal. Deeper, however, is a journey of transformation and inspiration into the depths of millions of hearts. Jeremey Gilley began this missions in 1999 with a seemingly simple goal: to persuade the United Nations to have the International Day of Peace be officially observed on a specific day.

See, the International Day of Peace already existed, but nobody knew about it because it coincided with the first day of the United Nations coming into session... and that date changed every year. The day came and went every year like the passing of a fall breeze. Since it already existed, it was no easy task for Jeremey to work around the politics and red tape to get the UN to make such a seemingly insignificant change. In fact, at some points the challenge seemed almost impossible as world leaders who said they would support his efforts, even on video camera, would later decline to help in any official manner.

His mission was further challenged by the fact that he had no money, so anything that cost anything required a donor. This means airfare, hotels, transportation, filming, food, etc, all had to be contributed by others. At one point, Jeremey even met personally with His Holiness the Dalai Lama to secure his blessing and official support for the International Day of Peace.

And that was a major turning point, as the Dalai Lama sent letters to many of the world leaders urging them to support Jeremy's mission. Yet today millions of people around the world celebrate the International Day of Peace every Sept. 21st because of Jeremy's unrelenting efforts.

That's just the details though... and I highly recommend you watch the movie because the story is well worth hearing, and sharing.

Spiritual Book Review:
Essential Laws of Fearless Living by Guy Finley

  Spiritual Book: Essential Laws of Fearless Living
If you've been having challenges taking ownership of your spiritual growth and really expressing your inner courage, then this is a book well worth the read.

It's not for everybody, however, so I recommend you read the summary or book jacket, or flip to a random page and see whether Guy's writing calls to you.

I will say that one of my personal favorite aspects of this book is that Guy shares several spiritual stories and then discusses, in-depth, the wisdom contained within each of them.

Spiritual Quote of the Moment

"Once we realize -- no matter what we attempt in life — the 'worst' we can do is learn from that experience, then the whole idea of 'failure' fades from view and, in its place, freedom appears."
