A Gift of Inspiration

To me spirituality is about more than simply ‘self realization’.  It also involves ‘self expression’.  The art of awakening is to both ‘know yourself and show yourself’. When we wake up to the wonder of life, there is a deep ‘love of being’ that demands to be expressed by bringing love into the world … by contributing to the collective through being creative.

I have worked all my life in the arts and as a spiritual philosopher, so I have always been keen to combine the two.  I love conveying deep ideas through books, music, performance and so on. So I was delighted to have the opportunity this year to create a short film with director Nick Ralph exploring the experience of awakening in a simple, vivid and experiential way.

My hope is that we have created a poignant little film that will touch both those who have an interest in ‘spirituality’, and those who don’t see themselves as ‘spiritual’ at all. I feel this is important if we are to share the possibility of awakening with as many people as possible in mainstream culture.

So in this blog I want to do more than give you just words. I want to offer you a feast of ideas and images by sharing our short film … as a gift of inspiration. Let me know your reactions. If you enjoy it please share the film with your friends and social media. Love is only truly love when it is shared.

Deep love
