A video journal about my particular journey through life.
Let it be insightful for you, if it feels right.
Michael Baxter on the Nature of Reality
Michael and I spoke more than an hour on the phone and he related that his insight into the nature of reality was it's truly massive, the ultimate of solid. Usually we always talk of no thing, no thought, pure potentiality, the ultimate void. I was fascinated, but he didn't want to do a Skype interview.
What strange reasoning took me to Iowa City, I do not know. I had been definitely thinking not to move around this summer. But once there, all the secondary reasons to to come collapsed and we were full on in uncovering the Cycle of Self Knowledge, as Michael had developed it. I hope that you will be as enthralled as I am.
Michael Baxter on the Cycle of Self Knowledge
Session 2 of 3, Esoteric Sciences
We moved forward Carefully
One thing I didn't want to do was to jump into a lot of assumptions and esoteric vocabulary, as if we "all agree that these are real concerns". I wanted to piece it all together step by step.
Session 3 of 3, This is Every Day Life
We said Amazing Things
The cycle of a single thought is like the cycle one hydrogen atom. In a way it is theoretical, because one atom never appears alone without outside influences. But still the method is instructive.
Mauricio Saravia's art is the closest you will get to a moving, true life story that can be found within each and every painting. Like Frida Kahlo, Saravia walks the same spiritual and elemental journey.
Saravia's own, unique struggle and story has taught us so much about life. Painting his soul on his canvas, laying brushstrokes of intense dedication, emotion, compassion and love of art. If you look close enough you can see in great detail his passion and love of life in each and every stroke of energy that has been engraved deeply into the canvas.
Very few painters have ever lived such an intense life and achieved such greatness within, to tell their story.
Even without meeting the man, you can get the experience with these videos that bring you into his presence.
Where are all the new videos on Never Not Here? Am I on strike?
I lived in Italy more than a decade, so maybe I am part Mediterranean by now. I love the heat of the summer and I like to be out and enjoying it. One thing we are putting our time toward is our garden.
I thought that I wanted to share it. So here is what it looks like so far this year. (You can tell us what you are doing this summer.)
Play of Freedom Session One
Some time ago Florian and I made 5 recordings which include some of the clearest sharing and most deeply touching moments of my talking with any guest. This is the first one of those recodings.
Each session is a logical extension of the previously laid foundation and quite different in its focus and impact. All together they tie into a logical construct that successfully transports a level of knowing that transforms how we look at and how we feel about life. You can definitely feel the "Play of Freedom".
We talked about Mora's new book "Peculiar Stories", where she gracfully suggests to a youngster that what you see is perhaps not always best served by conventional interpretations. In the end it is each one of us that gets to take seriously some interpretation, (or not).
While we are checking that out, we might also see what the effect of each of those interpretations are on our own lives.
Daniel Hirtz is Electric
Wouldn't it be obvious if I am able to SEE something about life, that I would be moved to LIVE IT? To express what I see?
Observing the world, maybe it doesn't seem that obvious? Daniel is an activist. He wants to stire up collective courage to live our dreams. Can we do that better if we hold hands? Why not? Here is my hand, I want to be in on it.
Kira Kay, the Tendency to Conceptualize
Can it be that we are all born with a handicap? Our abstract human focus gives much attention to ruminations of what could be or what was. Is there any truth to those things that we think about? Do they just generate an apparent experience, that then we take as a proof of their relevance?
Canela Michelle Meyers Book Launch
"Right Here Right Now Meditations"
I started building a metaphor that I wanted to develop into the idea that for the most part we lead "virtual lives". Canela got the point exactly before I even got it out, "why don't we just take the elements of life that are showing up in every moment, and play the game with them?"
I seem to be very much in sync with Canela, or her with I. What comes out is exactly the points that I wish to capture. Great fun.
