If you have 3 minutes to spare, I highly recommend that you watch the video posted above. It is a very short but insightful piece on life, love, and the struggles we have within ourselves.

This was directed by filmmaker Jonathan Bregel. He said the following about the video:

‘The theme for this film was sparked through an e-mail I received from my Godfather earlier this year when I had reached out to him for advice during a transitional period in my filmmaking career. His e-mail stated something so obvious and true to my foundation that I immediately felt shame amidst the incredible awakening effect it had on me. The following sentence in his e-mail struck me like a lightning bolt from above:

“Your highest purpose in life isn’t to be the greatest filmmaker ever, but to become as human as possible.”

What this meant to me was that the “work” I was striving so hard to accomplish was blinding me from what really matters most in life; the joy that comes from loving and truthful relationships I carry with me until the day I die. To this day I firmly believe that without truth or honesty, and love of self and others, we are failing to experience all the joy that life has to offer.’
