‘Globalized Soul’ Celebrates Humanity’s Oneness
SANTA FE, N.M., March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Three years after Rumi Returning, their documentary about the great Persian poet, was broadcast on over 330 PBS stations with screenings around the world, Heaven on Earth Creations is set to release Globalized Soul. The new film follows the theme of a universal spirituality of love, which made Rumi Returning popular. But, this time producers Kell Kearns and Cynthia Lukas have embraced the whole planet.
Globalized Soul is a mystic tour through the ancient longing of humanity for peace. It tells of a rising consciousness on earth of our oneness at the moment in history when collective love, compassion and nonviolence are necessary for our survival. Gorgeously filmed in India, Turkey, Morocco, Israel, Mexico, The United States and at The Parliament of The World’s Religions in Melbourne, Australia, the film celebrates the colorful diversity of the Spirit of the Earth and the common heart we share.
Like an ensemble drama it weaves stories of empowered peacemakers around the planet — stories in which hatred and suffering transform into love and caring. Soaring on the music of Enya, Philip Glass and Ravi Shankar, Globalized Soul casts beautiful light on the human path toward harmony.
It is a tapestry deeply woven. “What lies upon that far shore, beckoning humanity in bright waves from the edge of time?” asks narrator Kell Kearns at the beginning. Silhouetted against the Sea of Galilee and a full moon, waits a solitary fisherman. “Could a new consciousness be rising out of humanity — a new paradigm of wisdom and unity?” Kearns asks.
The film turns first to the oldest religions for an answer.
A Celtic harpist, elders from Australia and the pueblos of New Mexico, offer the same prescription for a sustainable world — love, sharing what we have, and acknowledgement of universal sacredness.
In Jerusalem and Nazareth, courageous Jewish, Muslim and Christian peace-builders unite to affirm their love for each other.
In India, Jain philanthropists provide 29,000 of the poorest and most physically challenged with medical help and prosthetics. The Dalai Lama arrives, affirms the compassion, and holds interreligious dialogs with the Jains. Globalized Soul uses the opportunity to explore the principles of ancient Jainism, which birthed Gandhi’s concept of nonviolence.
Other interviews woven into the epic story include Zen leader Joan Halifax; spiritual progressives Michael Lerner and Joan Chittister; James Trapp, President of the International Association of Unity Churches; and Mary Evelyn Tucker, Senior Lecturer at Yale University.
“Everywhere we traveled for Globalized Soul — we found a solidifying oneness,” Cynthia Lukas said. “Instant communications have made us all neighbors. The overwhelming sentiment around the planet is that we should love each other and work through our global crises together, nonviolently.”
By the end of this documentary odyssey the question posed at the beginning is answered: Only love and compassion lifts and sustains the world and is desperately needed at today’s “global tipping point” between harmony and disaster.
