#Occupy Love: What if You Lived According to What You Want to Give?

A taste of the upcoming feature documentary, Occupy Love. “Love is the felt experience of connection to another being. An economist says ‘more for you is less for me.’ But the lover knows that more of you is more for me too. If you love somebody their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. This shift of consciousness is universal in everybody, 99% and 1%,” says Charles Eisenstein.

“All of the baubles of the rich are a phony compensation for the loss of what’s really important. The loss of community, connection, intimacy. The loss of meaning – and everyone wants to live a life of meaning.”

“It’s really hard to create community if the underlying knowledge is that we don’t need each other. People get together and consume together. But joint consumption does not create community. Only joint creativity creates community.”

Charles Eisenstein, author of Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition, is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. This is a community funded film. Watch video with Spanish subtitles.
