We live in a time when we are told to believe that we are separate — or perhaps think of ourselves as separate — from the earth. In truth, we are intimately connected to one another and to our natural surroundings. The decisions we make daily have a large impact on the future of our environment, including the way that we vote with every dollar we spend. Watching this film has reaffirmed my passion for supporting the regeneration of the earth through compassionate means, and for protesting the irresponsible and harmful procedures that are in effect today with the sole purpose of increasing monetary returns.

“Arise” is a beautiful testimony to the kind of thought-shift and commitment that people are showing around the globe. No action is too small or insignificant.

Please see this phenomenal movie.



…I want to beg you, as much as I can, dear sir, to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions  like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.

– Rainer Maria Rilke, in his letter dated July 16, 1903. Excerpt taken from Letters to a Young Poet, translated by M.D. Herter Norton.
