Here is a note that I will be sending to family and friends.
While I was away from the computer for almost four weeks, I kept notes with pen and paper. We also had a chance to listen to Thom Hartmann. On one particular day we heard Thom talk about the documentary film, “I Am.” We went to see the film with our son. “I Am” is truly a great documentary film that is written and directed by Tom Shadyac. The film probed the exploration of our world; what is wrong with it; and what we can do to make it better. After surviving a horrific cycling accident Tom Shadyac emerges a changed man by abandoning his life of glamour and possessions and he moves into a mobile home to begin life anew.
“I Am” is a film that is not playing in major movie theaters and it is not viewed in all the major cities. In the film we are asked to be part of a better world by cooperation, sympathy, love, and connection. We are connected to every human being whether we like it or not. Are you a person who can love? Are you a person who can see with your heart? God said to you and me, “I am who I am.” We need to be like God and be “I am.” Seeing God in all His creations is very important.
Let me say that this documentary film is not for everyone. If two questions can be answered with a yes, you are eligible to see the film. I need to caution you that your viewing of the film will shake you from your comfort zone. It is my understanding that whenever people are shaken from their comfort zone, they can become very upset.
Here are the two questions. Are you a person who can love God’s children? Are you a person who can see with your heart? We do see with our eyes but the eyes can be deceiving in what we need to see.
P.S. I was unable to locate movie theaters in the Detroit area that are or would be showing the film, “I Am.” I tried – iam, iam.com, iamdoc.com, and iamthedoc.com with no luck. You may have better luck.
