I have a new favorite movie. Not a new movie, but a new favorite. “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”…it’s on Netflix…it is not “spiritual” per se, it is not your run-o-the-mill flick. But it does have this amazing song, which I think will be turned into a Zikr cycle in short order: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us6ZcvCcYoo
Please, friends, smile. Whether you’re feeling it or not. It sets happy hormones flowing…you won’t regret it.
