In The Beginning There Was Light: film review

InTheBeginningI just watched this documentary about people that are living (or have lived) for many years without eating or drinking ANYTHING. I first heard about this phenomenon back in the early 70’s while reading material from an alternative health perspective. They were claiming that people can live by extracting energy from the sun through the practice of sun gazing. I like to think of myself as open to whatever’s true and read a bit about it. I never actually tried it because the people in the publication were living in the mountains of the Andes. A week ago, I saw this documentary mentioned on FB and decided to get the film and see what was up.

Well, apparently there are many thousands of people around the world including Doctors and Scientists who have stopped eating and drinking. Other so-called scientists refuse to believe that it’s possible even after the subjects take part in controlled studies. Their skepticism just doesn’t seem to allow them to adopt the view of a true scientist. Anyway, I am very intrigued and somewhat excited about this documentary as it seems to offer a real alternative to the way we can live on this planet. These folks claim to be living on PRANA. Now, prana is something I have studied with regards to the breath work practice that I have been pursuing for almost a year now. I wholeheartedly recommend you check out this film if anything about it seems to interest you. Just think of the possibilities! A number of cases from around the world are presented including a man in India who has gone without food or water for over 70 years. Of course, there are a number of stories in religious tradition about saints living this way. Just IMAGINE if we didn’t need food.
