Storyline

We do not live in the physical world! Where we really live is in the invisible world of experience. It is in this world, and only in this world, that we have infinite possibilities, and are safe and at peace at all times. As long as we don't realize that this is the world in which we truly live, not only does nothing in metaphysics make any sense, but no matter what we do, what methods we use, what systems we follow, we will not achieve what it is we truly want. Written by David Friedman

A thought provoking experience!
28 April 2012 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this film! There are so many pieces of media out in the world that try to convince us what is the 'right' way to live our lives it is hard to know where to turn and who to follow at times. The Thought Exchange film showed me that there is a simple (yet profound) way of looking at the world, that allows us to understand and experience the truth about who we really are, where we really live, what we really want, and how to have that all the time. It is not rocket science, but a journey that perhaps you have begun many times, only to get lost, frustrated or sidetracked along the way. I found the way the film was cut and produced made it very easy to follow, and the cast involved were always clear and concise and I was able to understand their messages easily. Without giving away anything about this film, I simply have to say you must see it, for it has opened my eyes to a world full of sensational living, and I hope it does for other film watchers too!
