A Question to Hold Perpetually Close

Posted by on May 25, 2019 in Audio, Films

“… for whom do you act?”

I made this 4-minute film a few years ago for a movement within Hollywood seeking to change Hollywood and provoke a conscious lighting strike to the system from within the system. It opened the conference in a theater on Hollywood Boulevard with Jim Carrey, Eckhart Tolle, John Raatz, and many more.

It was strangely haunting to hear my own simple guitar echo throughout a darkened theater at the outset.

This film was based on a poem I wrote in contribution to the purpose of the movement and was based on one singularly provocative question, a question that seems even more relevant today. A question you might do well to hold perpetually close.

 

For Whom Do I Act?

The force of one man’s cleverness
and ambition to succeed,
changed the world.

But in favor of one,
and not the other.

The strength of another man’s
vulnerable and
emerging soul,
transformed the world
with his every breath.

Leaving all mankind with
the possibility of
a single haunting
question.

‘For whom do I act?’
