John is courageous in many respects. To challenge a system from within. Not expected on Wall Street. Not acceptable. To expose oneself to uncertainty and exclusion from one’s peers with all that might bring is often too great a barrier to act. But if not you, then who?
What you seek is seeking you BUT you’re so busy looking that what is trying to find you, can’t. Know this, that there is a possibility that what might drive your entire life could be so dramatically different.
Awareness is an unusual substance. Beyond powerful. It stands to change this world for the good. Yet the act of seeking it might push it further from us. The following is an observation of how we might transform the very way we see and why such a thing might be important.
There is a Grand Human Predicament. It is that we seek to become enough, yet we never seem to be. There’s a sense that we will never be quite enough in this relentless pursuit of belonging. This is an antithetical counter view. A simpler way. This is an outline in just eight images.
“… this maybe a revolution of an idea. That what we seek is seeking us. That what we yearn for exists already and doesn’t need to be worked towards. That human connectedness is here. It’s always been here. It doesn’t need to be conjured up. It simply needs to be noticed.”
‘We are a Work in Progress.’ And so lives the perilous myth on which our human existence appears to have built itself. We are not yet enough. There is someone we must become. This life has conditions. This piece is central to the way of all of this. And contrarian, if not dangerous.
A unique experience for your conference or meeting. The visceral and direct experience of the human soul, profound connection and conscious insight. Based on a method developed from two decades of filming the interior world.
I was interviewed by Preeta, a former General Counsel to Barack Obama in the White House. And Steve, who has made many films delving into the human condition, and things beyond the veil. This is the recording of that long-form interview.
Start with Nothing. No-thing. No act on your part. For this moment in time set down your requirements. Let the experience of each film subject find you, not you them. Like the experience of music. Witnessing is not an act on your part. Let it. Simply let it.
When we are seen without judgment or condition, we are known. When we are known, we become aware that we belong to each other. It is such an awareness that might change the world. These are essential notes on how best to experience these film portraits.
