Is This Documentary Broken?
(Click Here To Let Us Know)

The world is undergoing a very turbulent evolutionary process. As the
very fabric of our society crumbles, a new paradigm is unfolding all
around us founded on unconditional love, joy and mutual respect for
all life. The question is, how do we join it?

There are many paths up the spiritual mountain, for each of us the
journey will be unique. Yet we are all influenced in very similar ways
as we pass key ‘altitudes’ on route to the summit. Understanding these
transitions can remove much unnecessary suffering in our lives and
catalyse our next step.

Inspired by the book of the same name, “5 Gateways” is a colourful
documentary, detailing from direct first hand experience, the
spiritual transitions we all must make if we are to peel away the
blockages that limit us and unfold into the new paradigm. The time is
now. There is no other time!

    The longer and harder you swim against the flow, the tougher your life will be, and the less happy you’ll be. I’m a doctor, and I see it every day. People struggle against themselves. Stress, self hate, addiction, and lack of meaning – these things kill humans, and I’ve never helped a patient who wasn’t plagued by at least one of them.

    Not all spiritual journeys are the same, and everyone is going to have their own attunement. Everyone has their spiritual path and develops their own spiritual personality. I feel there are a lot of people forcing their spiritual realization, and trying to walk this path or another to see a truth they think they’re blind to. Really, there is no trying when you experience the real thing – trying won’t get you there for more than a glimpse.

    This documentary is entertaining, and it’s good that this was addressed. However, to understand even further than this video explains, you have to stop trying and let go. The shield you put up against the world is due to your insecurities and fears, which is natural and understandable. But even if you know about stars and chemicals and mathematics and business, it means nothing without self realization, and understanding of who you really are.

    When you climb a mountain, you can understand more about nature and your own limitations. Taking a helicopter to the top of the same mountain only makes you a prick. Who here is more learned? And is it the same thing, taking a car or choosing to walk? Reading about the Amazon rainforest or visiting it?

    Wishing all of you the best!

      first off, abusing the luxury of taking a helicopter ANTWHERE makes you a prick, its just money spent in poor taste. But anyways in regards to your statement that people TRY too hard, or forcing as you put it, their spiritual realization, I agree with you for the most part, but I think its important for people to express their desire and make efforts in that direction, even if theyre using misguided methods, in that even with the frustrations of all that effort, a perons subconscious will read that effort with the simplest of interpretation, and even if a person gives up, that yearning remains and will eventually lead that person to let go of all the struggles involved and realize its ludicrous to waste all that energy to get somewhere that’s already right there. I think that struggle may be a necessary stepping stone, for some, not all to a real fulfillment. I myself have strufggled for years with existential confusion, but I truly feel that all my efforts were more like growing pains, and I can now truly sense my awareness has at least changed for the better. I guess its a different trip for everyone, but I personal had to fight the current to realize I was in the river
