Unity of the Oaks tree

Unity of the Oaks tree

 

Tour with your Pop Conscious friends Malayna and Stacy, with Pop Culture as your eco-friendly vehicle through the sustainable past and the future possible. We’ll talk about cartoons (yay!) like Bambi, Pocahontas, Fern Gully and Wall-E. We’ll discuss Sci-Fi films like Avatar and activists like Erin Brockovich and Al Gore. We’ll also see what Unity cofounder Charles Fillmore said about conservation, all in time to celebrate Earth Day!

(And it was also Malayna’s dad’s birthday! But he’s not quite as old as the earth…)

 SHOW NOTES:

Disney has a history of nature documentaries –  BEARS is coming out on Earth Day!  Live action, but with personifications that people can relate with.

Plus, Bambi, Pocahontas, Wall-E!  (See lyrics to “Colors of the Wind” below….)

Charles Fillmore – on Conservation:

  • Revealing Word : Law of Conservation–Building up a large reserve consciousness of substance, life, strength, and power, instead of laying up material treasures. This is done through prayer.
    In Prosperity on Laying Up Treasures – Any form of waste is a violation of the divine law of conservation.  Everywhere in  nature there is evidence of stored up energy substance, ready for use when needed.

No hoarding!  Join in the cycle!

Deepak Chopra said energy and prosperity is like water — you need it to run and circulate and have an inlet and outlet. Much like Charles Fillmore said about Spirit.
