Recently I had the opportunity to rent the movie “Across the Universe” from my local library. I love the library because you can check out 6 DVD’s for free for two weeks! It’s a coincidence that this movie was there because I have been wanting to see it. Awesome how the universe is there for you just at the right moment.
Across the Universe synopsis
Director: Julie Taymor
A revolutionary rock musical that re-imagines America in the turbulent late-1960’s, a time when battle lines were being drawn at home and abroad.
When young dockworker, Jude (Jim Sturgess) leaves Liverpool to find his estranged father in America, he is swept up by the waves of change that are re-shaping the nation. Jude falls in love with Lucy (Evan Rachel Wood), a rich but sheltered American girl who joins the growing anti-war movement in New York’s Greenwich Village. As the body count in Vietnam rises, political tensions at home spiral out of control and the star-crossed lovers find themselves in a psychedelic world gone mad. With a cameo by Bono, Across the Universe is “the kind of movie you watch again, like listening to a favorite album.” (Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES)
Within the lyrics of the world’s most famous songs lives a story that has never been told…until now.
I have watched this movie about 10 times and these are a few of the scenes/songs that really touched my heart. Even though this is a movie based on the events of the 1960’s, there is still unnecessary war , hate, violence and destruction in the world today.
Why can’t we just LET IT BE and live in PEACE, LOVE AND HARMONY!
This video is dedicated to all the Goddessess out there. Remember you are a divine light for all. Many of us spend all our time on others and don’t have time to renew ourselves. Take time to devote to your being. Does not matter how you accomplish it, relaxation, meditation, massage, sitting quietly on the beach enjoying the sun.
Every moment of your life is infintely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you. ~Mahatma Gandhi~
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.~Mahatma Gandhi~
Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart. ~Khalil~
I find life and love in all that is. I am aware of the presence of God in all things. Each tiny part of the Universe is actually an expression of love. I raise my thoughts beyond the limits of my beliefs and convictions to open myself to the magic, the simplicity and the beauty of All That Is. I marvel at this splendor, which in reality is part of me.
I advance on the road of achievement in order to discover myself. In spite of difficulties, I achieve my objectives and embrace life. Faith is my strength. I believe in myself and my true potential. With the simplicity of a child and the wisdom of an old wise man, I move forward for my own sake. I live without fear because I will always be in good company on this journey towards the Light.
I give myself in life. I live in the here and now without concern for tomorrow, because God is always near me and will never let me fall. Fears attract darkness, but my faith surrounds me with light and raises me to a higher level of consciousness. I let go and I have faith that life will always provide what is most beneficial for my soul.
