THE LAST AVATAR – You’ve been dreaming, now it’s time to wake up, 2014
A film by Jay Weidner for Sacred Mysteries Productions, Colorado, DVD, running time 90 minutes, full colour.
A new film from Sacred Mysteries Productions! I have been most fortunate in the the past to review many of the SMP offerings and have never been disappointed. The Last Avatar maintains the expected high quality content and production values.
It is hard to classify the film in a genre, for it is a visionary, metaphysical feature film with a strong message and plenty of action. I see it as a colorful tapestry woven with the best from Eastern and Western religious and prophetic cosmologies. All this, in a compelling story that will hold your interest to the very end.
The locations in Oregon and Northern California almost steal the picture, especially Mount Shasta, but not quite. The casting is perfect with well-knowns, partly-knowns and unknowns, all acting together as a perfect ensemble. Alexander Polinsky takes the lead as Jack O’Ryan alias Kalki – the last avatar of the title. He is ably supported by pianist / musician Adey as Mary, his love interest and enabler. Adey also wrote the ethereal soundtrack (released on CD) The president of SMP, Sharron Rose makes an appearance as a local priestess, along with Roy Rains Jr. as the Watcher. Neale Donald Walsch portrays the Count St Germaine, while dancer/priestess Monique Trinity Rose is cast as the Guardian.
The storyline is clear. The action is centred around the unique majesty of Mount Shasta. Here the remnant of the ancient Lemurian civilization withdrew to the safety of underground Mount Shasta many millennia ago to await the advent of Kalki, the last avatar, known from the oldest texts of Hindu cosmology. Kalki is a powerful being who will usher in the Satya Yuga, or the next golden age, and bring an end to the Kali Yuga, the present world of increasing darkness. His coming will be resisted by forces of darkness and chaos. The earthly embodiment of Kalki will not know who he is or be aware of his destiny.
Jack O’Ryan is a screenwriter whose life is in crisis. To gain clarity he goes hiking in the mountains, not knowing he is actually Kalki. A small group of people are aware that he is on his way and have visions of meeting him. As Jack is hiking he finds a crystal hanging from a tree branch, puts it on and later encounters a mysterious older man who shows him the ‘light body’, which everyone has, but of which few are aware. From this point it is a hero’s journey with all the tests, challenges and setbacks you would expect. The purpose is to awake humanity from unreality and the grip of the Archons. These are alien beings that have infiltrated themselves into humanity. But first, Jack has to face his own initiations facilitated by the Guardian under mount Shasta.
This sounds like a straightforward hero’s journey, but it will help the viewer’s perspective to know from where some of the concepts in the film originate.
Lemuria was a legendary civilization along with Atlantis. It was supposedly in the Indian Ocean. The Mount Shasta connection was strengthened by the 1894 publication of A Dweller on Two Planets by Frederick S. Oliver. In the 20th century this was reinforced by followers of the the Ascended Masters and in the this century by the work of the Aurelia Louise Jones and carried on by Mount Shasta Light Publishing. Many who have climbed Mount Shasta swear and affirm that the very mountain itself has a palpable, unusual energy.
The Yugas. These are the great world ages in Hindu cosmology. There are four, that last hundreds of thousands of years each. Our current age of Kali Yuga is the last in the cycle and the darkest and most difficult. There are wars, unfair taxes, lack of mutual respect, lack of morals and a decline in divine attitude. Does this sound familiar? The thinking viewer might make parallels to living in today’s world. And who could be blamed for that? To move into the next golden age, the Satya Yuga, Kalki Avatar must cleanse humanity, so to speak.
Archons are found in Gnostic beliefs. They are alien beings that subliminally intrude on the human mind and encourage deviation from actual purpose in life. They are a force for chaos. John Lamb Lash has written about this extensively.
The crystal that Jack finds in the forest has an inclusion of the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. This is found both in the Judaic mystical system and the northern European magical tradition, as well as a number of of other magical and faith movements.
The Light Body. This concept occurs in nearly every religious and philosophic tradition. It is something that we all have but cannot see readily in everyday life. The best example in western religion is of Christ ascending. It is about the subtle energy that surrounds all of us. Current new-age movements focus on the Light Body, with the aim of transformation to a higher vibrational rate and to ascend in this life. Many readers will have heard of or practise transmutation by the violet flame.
All of these concepts can be found readily on the internet with a little browsing. Go for it! Just be warned that anyone, anywhere can buy a domain and start a web site. There is no requirement to have credentials in any field so you are going to find some information that is simply not verifiable. Be careful.
This is a film that is itself a wake up call. It encourages us to divest ourselves of negative programming and move into higher planes with the help of our light bodies.
It addresses the chaos that is happening in the world today and suggests a solution. A film that educates as well as being entertaining is rarely found and I thank SMP.
After watching this film for the second time, I had the very same feeling I had after watching Little Buddha (1993). I was inspired, I was tingling with energy, and so very, very happy.
I recommend this film to all that are looking for a possible solution to and a definite escape from chaos, both in their own lives and in the world.
