The CIRCLE of LIFE By Mark Presley

I have been practicing this effect for about two years now. I finally wrote a script for the piece and spent hours and hours filming this effect called "CIRCLE of LIFE" I think their were many things that have inspired me do write the script for the effect. Basically the story talks about how we all live in a world of deception truth, deception and illusion. How you decide to live your life is up to you.

We have choices in life and those choices identify what kind of person you are.
These days so many of us are so stressed out and short and quick to judge people. The world of deception tries to tear us apart from one another. Using our race, education, our job, trade, religion  even disabilities. We live in a social media world where we are so strong and quick to demand people to see our view in the social media with our posts on various topics that we hold true in our beliefs. But when someone comes along that goes against the grain of our beliefs or is expressing thoughts or beliefs that we disagree on. We are so quick to be angry, judge. even de-friend someone over a simple post that was simply supposed to be a post to generate intelligent discussion.

The video shows a kid being very disrespectful, disruptive and lack of manners.I posted the video on facebook with just a simple. "What's your thoughts?" little did I know that the post would cause a lot of controversy and also spun into religion and politics. Very sadly as a result I was contacted via facebook chat by the one feeling attacked and he told me he was going to  de-friended me becuase of a response someone else said.

WE were not really friends anyway, more like a acquaintance  A  real friend wouldn't do that. De-friending someone over someone elses "Comment Post" that you have no control or opinion over their actions is rather week in my opinion.  My guess is that the de-friend was on his agenda anyway and just wanted to make a way out without it looking like a abrupt de-friend. Anyway it's all good. I try my best not to take it too personal and move on. Some people struggle with other people's views, but they have no problem thrashing the theory of evolution on you.

It would be nice if we didn't have these challenges, turbulence's and trials in life and we could live life in piece and harmony. I was simply sharing my story. I'm sure it's happened to you. I know I have done it and afterwards felt quit ashamed to do that to someone in such quick judgment.

Life is full of deception and sometimes we have a hard time seeing who we truly are. When you stand in front of the mirror are you seeing the whole truth or just half the truth? After all the mirror only shows the front half of you. What is behind you? do you know?

We live our lives in a circle of life. The circle has no begging and no end. It goes on for infinity.
A string on the other hand has a beginning and it has an end. Much like our lives have a beginning and an end. The very fabric that makes the string strong is the very same fabric that makes the string weak and frail. Much like our lives. Strong, weak and frail.
And so we find ourselves trapped in the circle of life. Once in awhile we are able to escape and set ourselves free and we are able to experience success, triumph , happiness and love. 

So what does the mirror and the circle of life have to do with on another? Well that depends on if you took the blue pill or the red pill. If you take the blue pill you will remain blinded and trapped. If you take the red pill your eyes will open and you will set yourself free from the illusion and you will realize what's really important in life. Money? What's really important is how you live your life. Life your life the best you can. The most honestly. Be happy. Love one another. Because in the end nothing really matters. In the end we are all simply dust in the wind.
