There is an idea floating about in the world that is incredibly powerful and is gaining momentum and ground. It says that our “story” ie. our narratives on what it means to be human, how a living should be made, justifications for social injustice, old ideologies etc. no longer serve us. However, we are not necessarily floundering in a fragmented postmodern world. A new story is emerging.
Perhaps I should say stories. If someone asked you to tell this new story, it would be difficult to articulate. These stories span villages, cities and countries, they share a multitude of multi-cultural perspectives. Yet, at the heart of these stories are common themes: a desire for change, a desire for deeper connection with each other and our natural world, a desire to live more ethically, and a desire for community empowerment.
On my Facebook page, I’ve been sharing a film a day which tell these new stories. Some are full documentaries, some are short clips. As this blog ‘speaks’ to Facebook, I’m going to continue Film Feast For The Future here.
To catch up, I’ve so far shared the following three films. In each, the inspiring Charles Eisenstein is featured. How could anyone not listen to someone who writes a book entitled: “The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible”?
I found the documentary “The New Story for Humanity” very moving. What stays with me most is how there is a complete change in the face of the people who express their love and hope for the future. It is inspiring. The full documentary can be found at this link:
The following clip is from the film “Occupied Cascadia.” It provides a flavour of the full documentary.

I’m hoping you like Charles Eisenstein, as here’s another!
