One in nine people on earth (approximately 795 million people) suffer from chronic malnutrition. Yet, there is enough food to feed the world's population. Based on an ancient story about hunger and sharing, this one-minute animated video shows that when we struggle only to feed ourselves, everyone goes hungry. But when we focus on our neighbor's hunger, we discover there are ways to feed everyone.

    A positive outcome happens when we shift the focus from our wants and needs to that of helping others schieve theirs.

    This video sends out a clear message to the world. It is about time our governments round the world wake up and do something now about the souls on this earth who are starving every day. It doesn't have to be this way!

    The spirit of sharing no matter how difficult it was to get food from the pot, cooperation and oneness is important. Food is life.

    I was very taken by this animation. For me, the essence of the problem today is just that which was portrayed at the start of the piece, to wit, some are overly protective of their 'bowls and spoons'. We need to share our bounty and, if we do, we will become much more human and happier in our lives. Difficult some would say, yet very possible.

    Powerful. I know of this story in a different version where a person asks, "What is the difference between heaven and hell?" They are shown a place like this video first depicts of people starving, trying to eat with long handled spoons. "This is hell," he says. And then they go to another room and in this room is the same bowl, the same long handled spoons, but the people are smiling and happy as they feed each other. "This is heaven." Here's to creating heaven on earth. This animation is wonderful. Thank you for sharing it!
