Join us in the making of Killing Buddha!
While distributing What The Bleep Do We Know?! I was honored to be able to travel the world to speak about my experience making “Bleep.” The most common question people asked me at the end of my talks was, “ How did a broke, out of work, spiritually unconscious, material Valley Girl who was into sex, tequila and expensive shoes end up being a writer, director and producer of What the Bleep Do We Know!?”
Sometimes it takes the most unlikely of people in the most unusual circumstances to create something that touches the world like “Bleep” did. The story I told was so funny and resonated with so many people I decided to write a film about it, a comedy called Killing Buddha.
Killing Buddha is a reminder that everything we seek can be found within ourselves. Hence the title which prompts us to let go of all our attachments to the people, things and events in our lives that we put on pedestals thinking they can bring us happiness instead of finding happiness within. Really, it’s not the car, the boyfriend, the seminar, or even the guru — it’s you that makes the difference!
Simple, right? Yeah, so simple I and everybody else I know seem to keep forgetting it! So often in our search for meaningful answers we get lost in an overwhelming sea of choices, teachers, and so many messages, we forget our-selves. We give our power away to the latest fad, the newest idea (or even the oldest idea) we’ve just heard. Sometimes these beliefs and people take over and we lose track of our inner guidance.
Which is why I think it’s so important to get a funny reminder out there for all the people who’ve been on the spiritual path forever, as well as all the newbies asking the questions (maybe for the first time), “What does my life mean? Why am I here? And how can I be happy?”
