On Creating… The short movie One Small Candle

 

 

The Prophet of Life On Creating The Short Film “One Small Candle”

I wanted to create something that would inspire people all over the world. I wanted to illustrate the power of faith during difficult circumstances. I decided to illustrate this through portraying the story of a poor young woman living in a violent neighborhood of a major city. The story is not based on any actual person but I am certain there are millions of people in exactly the same circumstances as the main character.

It began as the lyrics to a song. Then I transformed it into a story poem for a book I wrote entitled Revelations of 2012 (this book was only issued in paperback and only a few hundred copies exist so if you can find one, snap it up).

When I wrote the poem, I wanted people to get a sense of what the main character goes though on a daily basis. I wanted them to notice how one small act she does, consistently inspires others over time. I thought that perhaps if people saw something in this story poem, they might look at their own lives and think about what small act they could do consistently to inspire others.

I do believe that there is a cause effect relationship in every act we perform whether it is positive or negative. This poem and short film are meant to illustrate that in an inspirational way. I kept the film short and simple. There are no pictures, just words on a black screen and gentle background music. And subtle special effects that hit you when you least expect it.  It tells an entire story, in rhyme in about two minutes. So spend two minutes and watch One Small Candle.

Are We Experiencing The End of The World?

By The Prophet of Life

With the stock market in China stumbling and falling, North and South Korea facing off, Russia taking over part of The Ukraine, ISIS making inroads into Iraq, Syria and Lebanon and the effects of global warming beginning a long cycle of destruction to the weather patterns humanity has known for thousands of years, some will ask, Is this the end of the world?

The Chinese stock market is tumbling but will likely bounce back in time. It is unlikely that North and South Korea will engage in an all out war, drawing the rest of the world into a global nuclear World War 3. Russia might end up keeping Eastern Ukraine but will likely not go beyond it because an open seaport is what they need and those are in Eastern Ukraine. ISIS may be making inroads here and there but the die is cast and ISIS days are numbered.

Global warming, that is another matter all together. It has taken humanity thousands of years to reach this pinnacle of environmental global endangerment. Humanity has depleted forests, wiped out entire species of flora and fauna and polluted the air, water and soil for centuries. These activities have intensified over the last century, thus the intensification of warning sings but it took a long time for humanity to get into this mess, it will take a long time for humanity to get out of it. Problems between nations and stock markets, they are easier to fix because they are problems between people but the effects of global warming are problems with mother earth and will be much more difficult to solve.

The effects of global warming are not coming. They are here. Ill tempered weather will kill off the largest amount of people. Skin cancer due to depleted ozone will kill the next largest number. This will be followed by deaths from asphyxiation due to air pollution.

It’s time to stop watching the sideshows and watch the main event. It’s time to stop denying global warming and start doing something about it. It will take governments working cooperatively to insure that pollution, deforestation and ozone depletion are reduced. It will take every human on this planet contributing by changing their habits into recycling, reusing, repurposing and conserving. It will take scientists and inventors concentrating on creating things that withstand horrible weather, offset the adverse effects of pollution and global warming.

What we are experiencing is not the end of the world, it is a challenge. This is a challenge humanity must tackle over the long term but it is a challenge we are up to and a challenge we must rise to or face segmental extinction. I chose to create the term segmented extinction purposely. No matter what happens, some segments of humanity will survive.  No matter what we do, some of us will not survive. If we start acting now, however and sustain those actions over the long run, most of us and our future offspring will survive intact.

The Tenants of True Faith

True faith doesn’t need miracles or wish fulfillment to sustain itself

True faith is unconditional

True faith is belief despite evidence to the contrary

True faith accentuates times of joy

True faith sustains you in times of tragedy

True faith calms you in times of anger

True faith is professing faith even when it is unpopular or dangerous

True faith is beyond trappings and ritual; it is the spirit of them even without them

True faith is emotion tempered with logic

True faith is action when action is called for

True faith is love from the heart that permeates the spirit

True faith trusts even when the odds are against you and success seems impossible

—The Prophet of Life

How Glorious Is Man!

From The Psalms Section of Revelations of 2012

How glorious is man. He walks upright in the day with the sun shining upon him. He enjoys and lives off the fruits of his land and his work and his mind. He is lulled to sleep beneath the stars with the rain falling gently upon him. How glorious is man.

How glorious is man. When the winds blow hard he withstands them. When the waters overflow he treads water. When the ground trembles or fires rage or hurricanes come he weathers life’s storms. How glorious is man.

How Glorious is man. If he loses his home, he rebuilds it. If he loses his work he finds new work. If he loses loved ones he mourns them, remembers them but moves on with his life. How glorious is man.

How glorious is man. When his brothers mistreat him he stands up to them. When his brothers are ignorant he teaches them. When his brothers are hungry, he feeds them. How glorious is man.

How glorious is man. He learns to walk in the morning of his life, learns to run in the afternoon of his life, learns to relax in the twilight of his life and learns to fly at the end of his life. How glorious is man.

How glorious is man. He is born into a community of faith. He grows to develop his own personal faith and ends his life walking hand in hand with God. How glorious is man.

What You Have Done For Me Lord

By The Prophet of Life

I was an orphan in the house of humanity

And you adopted me

I was afflicted with the maladies of a beaten down life

And you transformed me

I saw the world as a child, transfixed upon my own ego

And you showed me the world beyond myself

I was idle

And you showed me the work to be done

I was boastful

And you showed me the power of humility

I was hopeless

And you showed me the miracles that are all around me

I wallowed in the filth of my own desires

And you cleansed me

I was ashamed

And you told me I had nothing to feel guilty about

I was guilty

And you showed me limitless forgiveness

I was alone

And you befriended me

I felt unworthy

And you rebuilt my self-respect

I was numb

And you breathed new life into my soul

I was powerless

And you empowered me

The Nature of the Universe

By The Prophet of Life
“You cannot control the universe.
You can merely react to it
Chaos is the natural order of things. Movements in the atmosphere cause
tornadoes and hurricanes. Rain causes floods. Movements in the earth
cause earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. Disasters and
catastrophes happen. This is the natural order of things. Large numbers
of people die from natural and man made disasters. Diseases ravage the
planet. Large numbers of people die. Babies are born with birth defects,
children are orphaned. People are killed or maimed in accidents. Crops
die, livestock are wiped out, beloved pets and family members pass away.
We as human beings cannot control the chaos that happens in this
world. We can only control our reaction to it. Many wonder why God
abandoned them or their loved ones in their time of need. Some people
lose their faith as a result of things that they perceive God allowed to
happen to them. That is just their perception. In truth, God never
abandons anyone. How can God abandon anyone that is endowed with a
part of God? The body may pass away but the spirit does not. And the
part of God that is in each spirit removes the spiritual essence from each
living being from its body just before the pain of death takes hold. For
most, the spirit is conducted back to God.
It is true that everyone dies alone. Even those surrounded by loved
ones experience death in their own way, on their own terms but they make
the journey alone. The others are merely there to see them off. It is the
part of God that each of us has that removes the spirit from the body and
takes it on its journey back to God. It is only upon the removal of the
spirit that death actually occurs.
Where I go, you cannot. The path I follow is not one that you can follow.
It is unique unto me. The path you shall follow is unique unto you. The
path we each follow is determined by numerous factors. Some of these
factors are those we are born with. Others are those we choose freely.
We are born with a unique set of determining factors. We each have a
specific genetic makeup and a set of environmental circumstances. Each of
us is a particular size, shape, sex, has a particular color hair, eyes,
intelligence and genetically determined health. We are each born to a
particular family, of a particular culture, socio economic level in a particular
city and nation. We are all born into a particular time, hour, day, month, year,
decade and century.
Many of the determining factors we are born with are not changeable
until we are legal or financial adults, from 15 to 21 years after birth. The city,
nation family and socioeconomic level we are each born into are examples
of this. Others are not naturally changeable. We may be able to surgically or
cosmetically alter our hair color, eye color, and even sex. We may be able to
alter the genetic code in the womb to diminish or even eliminate a
disposition towards specific diseases. These cosmetic and surgical
alterations are open to error and therefore may not completely change a
determining factor. The determining factors of time that we are born into are
not changeable by us and we are not yet able to communicate an alteration
to our parents before we are born.
Our determining factors have a great deal to do with the person we
become. Our determining factors coupled with our environment and
experiences are, in essence, what makes us who we are. Our determining
factors and our environment can limit our experiences. Great people
throughout history have been born into a wide range of determining factors
and environments. Many of them were born into adverse circumstances but
overcame them. If however, they had been born in London during the
plague or in Hiroshima five minutes before the first H bomb dropped, their
greatness would have never been known because they wouldn’t have
survived longer than a few weeks at most. All who are born have the
potential for greatness. What is great to some is mediocre to others. The
greatness that is or is not achieved depends on personal preference and
what people do with what they are given.
Many, never rise beyond their determining factors and live up to their
potential because they don’t go beyond what they are given or never rise
above the environment they were born into. They cling onto crutches in
their environment. Crutches are things that make life a little easier. They
assist in taking the path of least resistance. Crutches are things like the
easy job in the family business or obtained through a family member or
staying in the same neighborhood for the entirety of your life. They can
also be addictions, sex to make up for a low self esteem, drugs to mask
frustration or to cope with the stresses and strains of everyday life,
gambling to overcome boredom, etc.
The biggest thing that holds people back from realizing their potential is
living life in a passive way. People who live life passively don’t learn the life
lessons that are available to them every day; they rarely learn from their
mistakes and often repeat them over and over again. People who live
passively, plod through life with very little growth. They are basically the
same person they were when they were growing up making the same
mistakes over and over. Those who live passively know that other people
are suffering but they are too caught up in their own problems to want to
help. They are also too caught up in their own problems to notice
opportunities for change and growth that present themselves. They are
afraid of failure. Failure and disasters are used as an affirmation of the
correctness of their “safe” choices and as a boundary which they should
never pass in order to maintain their passive life. Often, they never free
themselves from a dead end job, addictions or a loveless marriage. They are
often ruled by their emotions and are either of uneven temperament, always
angry or hold in and hide their anger only to have a massive (and often
devastating) melt down at some point in their lives.
Many of the people who realize their potential live proactively. They look
at their determining factors as a starting point and grow beyond them. They
take chances, make plenty of mistakes and have many failures but they
learn from those mistakes and failures a rarely repeat them. They actively
seek opportunities to learn and grow and are always trying to improve
themselves, their lives as well as the lives of their loved ones as well as
others and the planet in general. They go beyond their own problems and
often help others and in so doing, are exposed to opportunities for growth
and advancement. Those who live proactively are not sheltered from
disasters. Disasters befall them as well.
The difference between those who go through life pro actively and those
who go through life passively is that those who go through life passively
use the chaos, and the mistakes, failures and disasters associated with it as
a vehicle to retard their progression and those who go through life
proactively use them as building blocks to propel their progression. Those
who are passive are held back by mistakes, failures and disasters, those
who are proactive learn what they have to teach and grow beyond them.

Spiritual DNA

By The Prophet of Life

“Just as your body has a physical DNA, your Soul has a Spiritual DNA.”

     Besides their physical DNA, all living beings have a spiritual DNA. Spiritual DNA is what connects your soul from one incarnation to the next. Further, it connects all incarnations of the same soul to each other. Spiritual DNA can allow living beings to connect with good things and bad things from previous incarnations.

The good things from previous incarnations can include talents (like playing a musical instrument) or proclivities (like either knowing or learning a foreign language with uncharacteristic ease). Those who are creative may also “picked up” things from previous existences. Just as people have motor memory, they have spiritual memory. Some creative people may be calling up things recollected from past incarnations, either that they may have created themselves or experienced. There are a great many things created by civilizations past that are lost to us historically but not spiritually.

The bad things people can connect with can include phobias, traumas and negative déjà vu.  Phobias can include things like fear of water (drowning) and heights (falling). Traumas can include unexplainably severe reactions to things like minor vehicle accidents, or extremely adverse reactions to medications or minor illnesses. Negative déjà vu can occur when one has uncharacteristic reservations about entering a place or interacting with a specific person or group of people.

Not all souls have chosen to reincarnate, some have not chosen to have an incarnation at all. All souls have existed since the dawn of time but not all have incarnated since the dawn of time. What each soul has learned from each incarnation is extracted and enriches that which is God. That which is learned does not refer to talents or what is learned through reading and studying, it refers to what each soul has learned about life, humanity and the state of the various species encountered in its incarnation. There is, however, some spiritual residue which remains and that enriches each Soul’s Spiritual DNA. It is that residual information which people can and many do, occasionally tap into.

Some beings, like Prophets for example, are linked across different Souls through Spiritual DNA. Such beings have an awareness of each other’s incarnations and are among each other during their individual incarnations.  They can call upon each other for strength and guidance during their individual incarnations. They influence and assist each other when they are not in an incarnation state.

Prophets differ from other beings in that the God Gene in their Spiritual DNA allows them direct access to direct communication from The Lord. This is to assist them in their mission. This is necessary because in the entire myriad of generations which have existed, so few Prophets are incarnated. The Lord communicates to humanity in increments over long periods of time.  Prophets need the extra assistance in order to get the message out and sustain it over time.  Prophets are not better than other people. They are merely different. While all living beings have a purpose and mission unique unto them, prophets have a mission to inform humanity. They have chosen to be incarnated solely for this purpose. They may have other things they do in their incarnations but informing humanity is their focus.

Just as Science began unraveling the mysteries of physical DNA centuries ago, science can now begin to unravel the mysteries of Spiritual DNA. Science doesn’t study things until they are thought to exist. Until The Lord revealed the existence of Spiritual DNA it wasn’t known to humanity. Now that it is known it can be delved into. It will begin with discussions as to whether or not Spiritual DNA exists. It will evolve into hypothesis and theories about it and then to designing experiments to prove or disprove its existence and eventually evolve into unraveling its mysteries until spiritual DNA is as well understood as physical DNA is today.
