In my prior post, “The Biggest Impediment to Strawberry Fields,” I talked about the metaphorical and literal place known as Strawberry Fields, and what it means to all of us.
Strawberry Fields is also in the title of my new documentary film,
“On the Path to Strawberry Fields.”
Strawberry Fields, located in Central Park in New York City, is an internationally renown place famous as a sacred space, one that imbues the traveler with hope, love, and a sense that anything is possible. At the center of Strawberry Fields is a mosaic inscribed with the name of John Lennon’s most famous song, “Imagine.”
When you enter a sacred space such as Strawberry Fields and feel that sense of hope, love, and anything being possible, it allows the power you have within to become activated. As that sense of power awakens, you feel a connection to everyone and everything, and your mind and spirit open and soar. In other words, you become more open to a greater consciousness, one that can propel you to live a life of magnificence.
But once away from Strawberry Fields, the disconnect sets in, robbing you of that sense of connection and possibility you felt while being there. You become not only disconnected from yourself, but also to others and the environment; simultaneously, you feel out of touch, broken and not whole.
This leads to a feeling of loneliness, making you desirous of connecting with others, but without knowing how to do so. It leaves you unhappy, depressed, anxious, and a host of other negative emotions.
And these issues are endemic in our society and world.
To cope with this suffering, we live in a state of denial and avoidance, and turn to things that can numb us from pain – alcohol, drugs, and other addictive substances. We run away from our own shadow, and instead become ruled by our reptilian brain.
Unless we learn how to consciously move past the reptilian brain’s way of thinking and doing, we become a slave to it, and life then becomes a process of missteps all along the way.
But there is a better way. Living a life of meaning and purpose, and awakening to that sense that life is meant to live whole and connected to something greater, then imbues us with the same feeling you feel when you step inside of Strawberry Fields.
When you start to live your life in this way, you will have a radical transformation in your life, one that will lead you to experience a revolution in the way you live, act and think.
