I am blessed beyond belief. -Hunter Hayes I have a strong belief that there is a God or Higher Power. I think that if you have a strong belief in that, then you won’t feel alone in life and you will feel you can get through anything. -Alana Stewart Always believe something wonderful is about to happen. I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief. -Gerry Spence Everything is possible for him who believes.
Hello. I don’t know about you, but I have been seeking good things for a very long time, so any time I am soul stirred or find myself wanting to understand the world better, I look to the sky. the stars, the deeper beauty.
I recently heard about Oprah’s latest project, BELIEF. Some of you may love Oprah or not, but I don’t think anyone would argue that she has done a lot of good in the world. So, when I saw her article about her “love note to viewers”—a special television series that took three years to make, 6 continents to visit, 800 total hours of footage, 28 languages to create the 7 hour series, I was interested.
BELIEF began last night and I wanted to see the stories, the depth, the questions, the answers of different religions, different people on their own spiritual quest in different parts of the world. It was just that, an hour of 4 different peoples stories about coming of age, making it through struggle, seeking through personal pilgrimage and a 100 mile journey to save a 50,000 year old tribal religion. The cinematography was beautiful, the stories captured, the wisdom heard.
If you are interested in seeing different religions from all around the world, hearing heart felt personal stories of others who are seeking, then you may want to turn the series on. It is on this week on Oprah’s channel OWN. I heard or read somewhere that Oprah spent her own money on the project because she believed so strongly in it. I think she wanted to give the world a precious gift to the world. Thanks Oprah.
Here is a little glimpse of the series…take a look.
