I am humbled at this email I received this morning... This is why I speak publicly and deliver a message of hope and prosperity!  I feel so blessed to have played a small small part in simply reminding someone that they ARE great!  They ARE powerful!  They ARE amazing!  


Hi Matt!

How have you been since the REI? I am confident that you are living and breathing your life consciously and on purpose :)

I felt compelled to email you this morning after finishing chapter seven of A New Earth. I am grateful to you for sharing this book with me.  I now have another set of words on paper that I can turn to grow my spirit and mind. 

Two acknowledgements I want to express to you...

As Father's Day is just around the corner, I would like to acknowledge the pivotal role you play in your children's lives.  They chose you to be their father, friend, and confidant, leading and guiding them in the early developments of their journey. And as they chose you, you also chose them to be your kids, your family, and lifelong companions to love, teach, and hold them in their higher selves.  I see greatness in you and respect the ultimate stretch for a man; one of the most challenging yet rewarding responsibilities and honors in life - to be a good father, a good single father yet.  I am speechless of the capacity of the unconditional love and support you give them, as I see and feel the beautiful energy frequency and connection your family has. Wow is all I can say! Powerful! And it all stems from the example you set for them. So my wish is that you receive these words openly and let them land :)

Number two, simply and clearly...thank you for leaving a spark in my life. I didn't lie when I told you that you are electric! We are total strangers, yet we are not because we are one with the Universe. Without you knowing, you have reminded me of what I am called upon to accomplish in this world. I am finding myself reverting back to my true essence which I am so blessed to live and breathe in again. Your ability to influence and impact is a gift from our Creator and along with other awakenings and my highly conscious way of living the last few months, I want to truly express to you my sincere appreciation and gratitude for my experience of you, your way of being, and showing up powerfully in this world. I am climbing my Ladder consciously and i feel light and free  so again...thank you, thank you, thank you! 

As you mentioned at REI, keep in touch! I would love to hear about your adventures, filming antics, and the magic you are creating around the world! Besides RE, public speaking, and staying healthy, I'm going to be producing some shorts on self defense and increasing awareness in the world we live in. Isn't movie making awesome? :)

Man on a mission, I look forward to connecting soon. Happy Father's Day to you and enjoy the time with family and loved ones!

Coleccionista de canciones

Tú, coleccionista de canciones dame razones para vivir

Tú la dueña de mis sueños
Quédate en ellos y hazme sentir
Y así en tu misterio poder descubrir
El sentimiento eterno.

Tú con la luna en la cabeza, el lugar en donde
Empieza el motivo y la ilusion de mi existir
Tan solo tú, solamente quiero que seas tú mi locura,
Mi tranquilidad y mi delirio, mi compas y mi camino
Solo tú, solamente quiero que seas tú y
Pongo en tus manos mi destino porque vivo
Para estar siempre, siempre, siempre contigo amor

Tú coleccionista de canciones mil emociones son para ti
Tú lo que soñe en mi vida entera
Quedate en ella y hazme sentir
Y así ir transformando la magia de ti
En un respiro del alma

Tú con la luna en la cabeza el lugar en donde
Empieza el motivo y la ilusion de mi existir
Tan solo tú, solamente quiero que seas tú mi locura,
Mi tranquilidad y mi delirio, mi compas y mi camino
Solo tú, solamente quiero que seas tú y
Pongo en tus manos mi destino porque vivo
Para estar siempre contigo

Ya no queda mas espacio en mi interior
Has llenado de ti cada rincón
Es que por ti que con el tiempo
Mi alma siente diferente

Solo tú, solamente, quiero que seas tú mi locura,
Mi tranquilidad y mi delirio, mi compas y mi camino
Solo tú, solamente quiero que seas tú
Y pongo en tus manos mi destino porque vivo para
Estar siempre, siempre, siempre contigo amor...

Office #RiotMovie Trailer 

As we began the last day of "scheduled filming" on this project,.. I was driving to set (the Tooele , Utah jail/prison) and I was thinking about all of the amazing people,.. and all of the effort that it took to pull off our latest film project (Matthew Reese Films and Mainstay Productions).  I first of all wish to thank each and every one of the cast and crew that worked to make this film possible.  #RiotMovie 

I, and my film partner (John Lyde with Mainstay Productions), have always said that "producing movies means problem solving".   Dealing with various road blocks and obstacles that come up, and yet still getting to our end-line goal of delivering a product that people want to buy.  Most of the time it is a constant game of making sure that everyone has what they need to make them happy and satisfied.  (:   Egos and attitudes come out…emotional and circumstancial drama between people  (which affects the overall production) come out…  It is our job to provide an environment and medium by which a movie can be shot, produced, and delivered to buyers and those that wish to distribute our film.  This process requires PEOPLE and their WILLINGNESS to see it through! 

HOWEVER…on this film project (excluding attorneys...which don’t actually count because they are not ON the project), we didn’t find much of that drama at all.  I witnessed so many people simply come together (cast and crew),..not because they were making a ton of money,..but because we ALL saw the value in each other as fellow creators, and we all cared enough to join each other, to make this project a success!  

I have struggled in my past in relying on ANYONE to pull their weight in my collaboration with them… Whether it has been in a relationships in my personal life, or my professional life!  Few HAVE pulled their weight!  Most have NOT!  I keep those that HAVE very close!  #innerCircle 

I, (in a previous blog entry) wrote about "The 7 habits of highly effective people” by Stephan R. Covey... and explored the first 3 habits (which are mastered by achieving “INDEPENDENCE”…achieving "SELF-RELIANCE" and becoming free of “CO-DEPENDENCE”)… 
 I, however, did STAY AWAY from the other habits…simply because they explore the concept The Author calls “INTER-DEPENDENCE”,.. I stayed away from this topic in my prior post, because I have not really experienced this before in my life…until NOW…with THIS film!

IN-DEPENDENCE” is about becoming self sustaining and self reliant, and doing it on his/her own.
INTER-DEPENDENCE” is where two (or more ) independent people come TOGETHER, with other independent creator.  When this happens, SO MUCH MORE is possible!!...     1+1 becomes 3 (and beyond)!  (Covey context intended)

This goes for relationships too!  One CAN only obtain so much fulfillment on his/her own (without another partner)…YET to achieve ULTIMATE fulfillment?…That is only possible WITH another independent co-creator… CO-CREATING is the only way to go further than one can on their own!  (Thank you Mike and Dawn!…for teaching me this ;)  1+1 can ONLY = 3 (and beyond) “IF” each individual involved IS AN INDEPENDENT CREATOR in his/her own right!  (Co-dependents need NOT apply!:)

THIS FILM…. #RiotMovie … has testified to me that ONLY in the light of collaboration and coming TOGETHER with a common purpose and goal, can so much MORE be achieved!  I stand dumbfounded with such gratitude for all of those that did come together to create this film!  (Cast, Crew, extras, featured cast, and major stars…EVERYONE)  

This has been a true privilege for me, as I have worked with, and watch us all contribute, come together, and create!

May we all taste (and be humbled by) The Power of “INTER-DEPENDANCE”!  Coming TOGETHER to create and add to a common purpose and goal!  #trust #beliveInEachOther     

I make special mention to those at the helm (John Lyde, Dolph Lundgren and Jenny, Chuck and Heidi Liddell, VMI, and so many others)  

97 to go!!
