To The Ones Consumed By Darkness

What must we address if ever hope to achieve lasting peace?

Each of us needs to examine our intentions and the energy inside us. Peace is possible when we focus on meeting our unacknowledged emotional needs, both individually and collectively. When we don’t do that, we project and externalize our hatred and anger – our darkness – on to the world.

To the ones consumed by darkness,

We see you. We understand you. We forgive you. We know that you feel are threatened and are desperate for security and control. We know that you are blinded by the illusion that without power, you are nothing.

Please allow love to heal you and your perceived enemies.

You are one of us and you owe it to yourself to experience joy. There is no joy in constantly being in a state of fear and hatred. Please allow yourself to be free. Please allow yourself to experience love and connection with your fellow living beings. There is another way of life that is even more delightful than whatever you are trying to protect or possess — one that does not involve suffering. Please allow yourself to discover that wonderful life.

We thank you for serving as the great common enemy that unites us all and empowers us to manifest light that is of equal greatness. We do not seek to destroy you. We only seek to put an end to this era of suffering.

We acknowledge your significance, so please come back to our side and lend us your strength.

Lend us your great power to create a better reality.

One without enemies.

One without war. 

One that cherishes the sacred relationship between all life.

How to translate sustainable human videos

What Is a .SRT File?

A .SRT file extension is a SubRip Subtitle file. These types of files hold video subtitle information like the start and end timecodes of the text and the sequential number of subtitles.

Steps To Translate A Video

Step 1 : Locate the appropriate .SRT file.
In the embedded spreadsheet below, find the title of the video you wish to translate. Check to be sure that your language has not been translated yet.


Step 2: Download the SRT file.
Double-click on the .SRT file for the video you wish to translate. Click on the Download button.
Step 3: Translate the file.
Open the file using any basic text editor program such as Notepad or Wordpad or equivalent. Do not open in Microsoft Word as it will corrupt the formatting. After opening the file, you want to REPLACE the English text with your language, line by line, keeping all numerical and time formatting. When you finish, rename the file with the name of the language you translated.
Step 4: Upload your new .SRT file using form below.
When you submit your translation file and provide your email, we will inform you once we have uploaded it to the video. Please allow for 24-48 hours for us to do this as it is a manual process.
