The power for good that Hollywood and filmmaking in general holds is really mind-boggling. When we sit and watch a well-made movie, we absorb the experience just as if we lived through it in real life. So the inspiration can be very effective in transforming our perspective on life and our belief in our own potential to achieve great things. Unfortunately, the potential to shut down awareness and twist the truth is also present in this powerful medium, and that is the one being used relentlessly by Hollywood, to support the agenda of high level world rulers and their destructive goals. But some of the private film makers are still determined to use their craft for education and upliftment of their audiences, for the good of the world. Joseph Piner (www.cinefocusmedia.net) (IMDb) is one of those.
Joseph’s film “Electronic Crack” (https://electroniccrack.weebly.com) shows how Americans and people all over the world are being intentionally addicted to the drug of electronic devices, damaging their ability for real human relationships and disconnecting them from the world around them. The film just recently opened in select private showings in America, and will be showing in film festivals in the near future, as well as screenings in more US cities. This Sunday Joseph will give us an inside look at the film’s characters and the information that is conveyed. I want to talk with him about why and how to break this addiction in our own lives, before it becomes too difficult to do so.
Join me, your host Richard Sacks, every week for fascinating discussions, amazing guests and useful information that you will not want to miss. If you want to support our work, please use the Donate button on our website, www.lostartsradio.com, and tell others about the show. Also, even if you don’t have money available to donate (and I don’t want you to donate money you need for yourself or your family), we have a new way now for you to help us if you want to. When you shop at Amazon for anything, instead of going to their usual website, go to smile.amazon.com. You can do all the same shopping at exactly the same prices. But 1/2% of what you spend goes to help our work. It will ask you what IRS-approved non-profit you want to support, and just choose Lost Arts Research Institute in Arizona. It won’t cost you anything, and it will help us keep going.
The Institute website (www.lostartsresearchinstitute.org) is still being developed, and deals with the work and larger project of the Research Institute, which we hope those with sufficient resources will support with donations that are now 100% tax deductible. The Institute is the entity that will build and run the educational facility where principles of health and consciousness can be demonstrated and experienced.
On the radio show website (www.lostartsradio.com) you will find links to the radio show archives, our articles, educational resources, announcements, the Discussion Forum, and more. You can also sign-up for our free newsletter to get information about upcoming shows and more. There is also a Lost Arts Radio Facebook Group you are invited to join.
The Saturday live show, which allows listeners to call and participate and has been audio only up to now, changes to a new, full-video format in January 2018. For several important reasons, it will take the form of a private, members-only “club.” This will allow me to say more on the air in response to personal questions and real individual situations you are experiencing, than on a show open to the public. The small membership dues for this club will help us keep operating, and will go to the non-profit Lost Arts Research Institute, to build our school as soon as possible.
The school will be an actual physical facility where what we talk about on Saturdays can be demonstrated and experienced. It will reach more people who need alternatives for health and life that work. It will serve people who are tired of making the same mistakes in food and lifestyle every day without understanding how to avoid the unnecessary pitfalls of “aging,” low energy, sickness, depression, the usual things that go with a standard American diet and lifestyle.
To see how the new Saturday show is going to work, go to our website, at www.lostartsradio.com/club. I hope you will join me on this new video platform. Your support will enable us to pay the costs of this more expensive broadcasting tool, and will give you private access to the meetings we will have there every week, sharing information that you can put to use in your life right away. One of my thoughts is to bring the benefits of private consulting appointments to club members at a fraction of the cost of private sessions. If you know anyone in a difficult health or life situation who might benefit from what we share, please let them know about the new private club format.
Thanks for being part of our family and we look forward to being with you on our next show. Feel free to communicate your comments and suggestions to me any time – I will read them all and respond as time permits.
