All Is Self (2019)

2

The chaos we see in society is a reflection of the chaos within the minds of human beings. If we wish to heal society, we need to heal ourselves. Our society, and consequently us as individuals, operates on a worldview based in separation, in seeing and feeling ourselves to be separate from nature. This allows us to cause so much destruction to the earth without feeling that we are destroying ourselves. This is what allows us to act with hatred and cause harm to others because we do not see our oneness with them. This is what makes so many of us feel miserable because we feel we are isolated and separate from the whole, and therefore, must live in fear of life.

While many of us may feel that we are somehow separate from the rest of existence, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Separation is an illusion. In reality, we are far more connected than we could possibly imagine. This film explores the topic of our unity and shows how spiritual traditions around the world have understood this for millennia, and how modern science is beginning to understand it now.

Featured in the film are (in order of appearance):
Chase Iron Eyes – Lakota Water Protector
Amit Goswami – Theoretical Physicist
Tim Freke – Philosopher
Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. – Teacher from the Toltec Tradition
Walter Kankin – Mayan Spiritual Guide
Maestro Juan Gabriel – Q’ero Wisdomkeeper
Caroline Putnam – Founder of Reviveolution
Swami Santatmananda Saraswati – Teacher of Advaita Vedanta
Amoda Maa – Spiritual Teacher
Master Gu – Taoist Tai Chi Master
Joseph P. Kauffman – Creator of “All Is Self,” and Conscious Collective

This film aims to point out the fundamental truth of our oneness by exploring this subject from the perspectives of many different world traditions – each of which state that there is a greater intelligence—a universal consciousness—of which our individual consciousness is but an expression. If we can awaken to this source of consciousness within us, then we can see it within all beings, and we will realize that all beings are our family, all is one, all is self.

Films For Patrons: Donate $5/mo to Gain Access to These Great Films

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations, while 99% of our library is free to access and always will be. The pay-per-view films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patrons, we partner with filmmakers and distributors to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally pay-per-view. With just 24 highly curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page.
