Ponderings and Insights
Folks, I thought I would utilize this e-newsletter to fill you all in on something exciting. Some of you may be tuning in as I write this. However, others may be unaware. Either way, I wanted to let you know that Oprah is currently showing a seven-part series called Belief on the OWN network. When you receive this e-newsletter, the series will have completed, but I’m sure you can find this documentary in multiple places, from Video on Demand to videos on her website.
So far, this docu-series has been amazing! Belief explores humankind’s connection with the spiritual through many different religions. It allows each and every one of us to be a fly on the wall in someone’s personal journey.
What this docu-series has shown me thus far is that the days of top-down religion are coming to an end. There is a movement toward an egalitarian, unrestricted, and individualized form of worship, practice, and ultimately belief that people the world over are creating. I think that the Washington Post can describe Belief better than I can. Here is their article on the series.
I am also sharing with you the trailer for Belief!
Whatever your beliefs, there is an ocean of information in this docu-series. At the very least, you will walk away with a greater understanding of other religions and other people around the globe. Certainly, that can only support humanity in moving toward a common desire for peace.
One thing that truly inspired me is that the Golden Rule is found in every religion. This is illustrated in the famous Norman Rockwell painting below.
