If I were to hold just one wish for humanity, it is that we remember our innate capacity to experience each other without condition.

It's Not A Thing You Do. It's A Thing You Are

It's Not A Thing You Do. It's A Thing You Are

Apr 11, 2023-- "I think people just want to feel like they're home like there's no one they have to be and there's nowhere else they have to be. Here we are. It's enough. You belong. There was never any condition to that, ever. You distance yourself and you say, "Well, they're wrong over there. They should believe what I believe." When all along, you could wrap your arms around them, everyone, no matter what. And it's so much easier if you recognize what you are and what you're part of. Not the ideology you're a part of but what you actually are, and to do that is so very simple. One has to be still enough for a moment just to catch a glimpse of what you are. There's nothing to do. It's not a thing that you do. It's a thing that you are. It's just a recognition. And then you can put your arms around everything." Filmmaker Nic Askew of the Soul Biographies film series shares more in this in-depth interview. (2463 reads)
