This is unusual. Filmed Fall of 2019. This 30 minutes of footage is pretty much uncut. Insights, admissions and all. It is deeply reflective and revealing of where this work is now to be pointed, and the contrarian nature of life and purpose finding you rather than you heading off to find it.
I sat in front of the camera with nothing to bring. There was stillness, space and time. And the knowing that these three were well suited partners. The resulting three minutes speak of something I’ve noticed. Something you may find useful – A human warmth and profound human connection that lives beyond all our seeming differences.
Morgan Fisher spent many successful and raucous years playing in major rock bands. He gave it up. And then one day on an express train from Osaka to Kyoto he was hit by the awareness of something so simple. So simple yet so profound that it’s quite possible that he might have missed it altogether.
‘It happens with people. It happens in solitude. It happens in the midst of incredible busyness. And incredible stillness.’ Might you take a step towards a contemplative life. A meditative life. A life of quiet and courageous transformation.

One can be asked what one wants a thousand times, yet the words remain impotent. Unheard amongst the deafening echoes of our modern age. And then one day, the world quiets. And those very same words find their way to the attention of your soul.
I listened to the Members of the Inner View Community. And to myself. And to the sky above the horizon. And this is what I heard of what we want. Of what this is. Of what ‘Us’ is here for. I wrote it down as a piece entitled ‘I Want This’.
A film about a profound realization following the life-threatening surgery of a free spirited soul. ‘… there is no other place, there is no other time. There is only now. Don’t hold back, this is it.’
So many of the things people think they want, they want because they think they can’t have. And as soon as they find out they can have it, the want goes away.’ A film about the nature of spiritual and material wealth. Can the two exist side by side?
