The Journey

In his film, The Drifter, Rob Machado escapes society to exercise his dislike for people. Buzzing cell phones, flashing lights, mass consumption and insensitivity at the cost of genuine Human Connection have warn him out.

Rob escapes to Indonesia and in his time of evading people he is discovered by people. A local tribe invades Rob's solitude and encourages him to interact again. In doing so, Rob re-discovers the simple beauty of human compassion and comes to understand that people are not the problem but the solution. All the stuff we put between us is what's wrong and ignoring everyone is just as libelous as spreading the insensitivity of Big City living.

Our discontent with the Path we are on is sometimes an effect of that path and not the shoes we wear.

You can walk into a wall or run into a wall!

Can it not be said then that discontent, lack of productivity, effort without results, a lack of happiness or the struggle to compete; may be a measure of the structure we have allowed ourselves to plug in to.

If the path you are walking starts to hurt your feet, try a different path!

This doesn't mean you have to quit your job, leave your family and take up surfing in Indonesia. But you might consider a new way of solving problems by embracing those around you instead of opposing them.

Don't Forget to Remember!
