Validation—A Moving 15-Minute Film

This wonderful little fifteen-minute film was released by Spiritual Cinema Circle to give people a sample of the kinds of films it has to offer. Spiritual Cinema Circle was founded by Stephen Simon, the movie producer behind Somewhere In Time with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour and What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams.

Stephen Simon

When I interviewed Stephen for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, he told me about a profoundly moving experience he had after filming What Dreams May Come. Here is an excerpt from that story:

Chuck showed the film to Amanda and some of her friends. Chuck said to me, “Stephen, I have to be honest with you. I didn’t watch the film, and I may never have the courage to watch the film. But I watched Amanda watch the film. And when it got to the painted-world sequence, I saw all the fear disappear from my daughter’s eyes. She became completely peaceful. The next day, she asked me to take her out to a park. She wanted to see the fall colors one more time. And the day after that, she died very peacefully.” 

And here is information about Spiritual Cinema Circle from its website:

Did you know that many visionary, soulful movies are made every year but never get into the theaters? Independent, spiritual filmmakers are creating movies with heart and soul, movies that really matter. Until now, though, hardly anybody got to see them.

Now, everything has changed. Now, there’s a place for you to see those inspiring, heart-opening films, in the comfort of your home, at a remarkably low cost.

Spiritual Cinema Circle is the home of entertaining films that inspire love and compassion, films that connect us with the world around us. Now in our sixth year, Spiritual Cinema Circle is home for a community of conscious filmmakers and film-lovers in more than 80 countries. We’re proud to have brought the work of more than 100 exciting, new independent filmmakers to the homes of tens of thousands of people around the world.

The movies you get are full-length features, both dramas and comedies, short films, and documentaries on mind-opening subjects. The movies are about many different subjects, but they all share common elements: All our movies are carefully-chosen to provide genuine nourishment for the heart and soul, a much-needed nutrient at a time when more and more Hollywood movies are violent, profane and devoid of meaning. Our movies inspire wonder, insight, deep feeling and transcendence. Above all, they make you feel better about being a human being.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents on Amazon.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
