Ilchi Lee believes that meditation can bring to light many revelations. For example, in his poem The Light of Conscience, he writes that "Although all people have conscience / It is difficult to meet people / Who live their conscience."
This theme is heavily present in 2000's hit drama, Erin Brockovich, a movie that shows one woman's journey as she tries to unravel a complicated controversy surrounding Pacific Gas and Electric Company.
Brockovich notices that residents of Hinkley, California, are suffering medical conditions due to industrial poisoning in their water supply and theorizes that it is coming from the operations of the corporation. She also finds that there has been a systematic cover-up of the findings.
The star of the film, Julia Roberts, won an Academy Award, Golden Globe, Screen Actors' Guild Award and BAFTA for Best Actress. Erin Brockovich is based on a true story and the real Erin Brockovich has a brief cameo in the film as a waitress.
The reception of the movie was largely positive. It received four Golden Globe nominations and five Academy Award nominations.
"We get the best of independent cinema and the best of mainstream cinema all in one package. Erin Brockovich, like Wonder Boys right before it, makes the year 2000 seem increasingly promising for movies," wrote reviewer Andrew Saris for The New York Observer.
