There are only a few moments in time when one finds a situation or situations that appear to be in complete balance and harmony with everything. Such was the story in our meeting the production geniuses behind True Form Films, Inc. It was like having a past life experience inside of oneself with bright and bold reflections so obvious that it mimicked standing outside in the golden sun. The difference in the frequency in this room than the one in the usual production office was clearly the result of such brilliant luminaries sitting all together, in comfort and in the same space. The day, despite it being under the mercurial influence of what astrologers and some scientist call a retrograde went well. If you can stretch your mind to believe in planets and how they seem to affect humanity as they make their way across the sky in their annual yearly cycle, then perhaps in your understanding there may be very basic knowledge gained.
