Are You Listening?

I recently watched the movie August Rush (twice actually) and I was blown away ...  I was profoundly moved ... I was inspired. Movies do that for me ... all the time.

When the movie opens you hear a voice saying, "Listen ... Can you hear? The Music ... in the wind ... in the air ... in the light? I can hear it everywhere. It's all around us ... All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do ... is ... Listen ... "

Without going into the details, the movie basically tells the story of a young boy who knows with every fiber of his being that he will one day find his parents. He doesn't wish or hope or believe he will find them ... he KNOWS he will.

The movie feeds that part of us that wants to believe in the magic of life. It uplifts the spirit and feeds the soul. From a creative standpoint it truly encapsulates the premise of heARTmatters!

If you haven't seen it ... Please do your SELF, your Spirit and your Soul a big favor ... And then let me know what you think.

The film ends with August questioning the character called the Wizard, "So only some of us can hear it?" And the Wizard answers, "Only some of us are listening!"
