The authentic religious experience is not inspired by charismatic, Bible thumping preachers. To be aware of the presence of that Higher Power that holds this universe together and makes life the wonderful experience it can be, one need only open his/her eyes and witness what is going on all around us.
We’re not just biological beings. We are caring, compassionate souls created to reflect Divine love in all that we do.
I’m a bit embarrassed to make this argument by using a commercial created for entrepreneurial purposes, but who would dare condemn the beauty of piece of art created by struggling artist just trying to put bread on the table? My compliments to advertising agency that created this video.
