Perplexing to many, offensive to some and to the way we believe this life works. Wrote it anyway. Of course, I might be entirely incorrect. It has been known.
It does speak to the state of the person behind the camera in the Soul Biographies INNER VIEW Method.
‘The Surrender Of All Notions Of A Different Future’
A man of this new
and unfathomable age
surrendered all notions
of a different future …
I wrote these words about a journey many of us appear to be taking whether we consciously decided to or not. The journey of awareness. And for those that are, I imagine Soul Biographies here might serve as a place of respite from a nonsensical world.

Many business owners find it extremely challenging to articulate their purpose. To tell the world why they do what they do. It is important to do this in truthful and authentic fashion. It is important for founders and their reasons to be clearly seen. To be recognized without pretense …

I wrote this after noticing how a particular someone would consciously and very obviously avoid those who didn’t agree with his way in the world. The effect such obvious exclusion has on the world is vastly underestimated, and we could all stand to examine if we are ever complicit in such behavior. #exclusion #bullying

This film was actually filmed by the ‘students’ on the last 5 Day Program. Edited by myself. It gives a sense of the ineffable experience and for what it is in service of. We now have the first DATES for 2018. USA + Europe …
Having re-read the #LeonardCohen near immortal line “there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”, I got to wondering if perhaps the light might have already been inside attempting an escape. And if that was the case then what that might say to the journey of becoming a someone.
A four sentence poem + a 3 minutes film …
There was a man who lived in a cottage. He came to a day course I once did, and said ‘I’ve had a lovely day out’. The words were not entirely true. The next time I was in England I felt compelled to drive half the length of the country with my camera. This is the result. Fair warning – this is way out there …
America has an inner voice. A voice that’s been mostly ignored. A voice that exists beyond the opinions of right and wrong. And so I have set out to capture it on film. America’s very Soul.
In starting such an adventure there have been some definitive moments. In a 3rd Grade in Tucson, Arizona a young girl stood by my shoulder, and when it came time to sit in front of the camera she said ‘I wish people would just understand’. When I asked her ‘Understand what?’ she replied ‘Each other. I wish people would understand each other. That’s it.’
And with that she stood up and walked off. As if she had come from far off to say just those few words. To tell us how simple it might be. But of course hearing the words and the words falling deep and irrevocably inside are so often poles apart …
Olav de Maat and his girl friend came along to an evening entitled ‘How to See the Human Soul’ in Amsterdam a few weeks back. And that is what we set about doing. With the image from the Soul Biographies camera projected on to a large cinema screen. Imagine the subjects – thank you Goor and Carolien – left with nowhere to hide and the beyond intimate black and white image leaving the audience similarly with nowhere to hide.
He wrote me this simple line a few days ago, about the experience of seeing deeper from inside their relationship.
‘… we actually look at each other differently now. Literally.’
We have acquired the use of an RV for September and will be heading South for Dallas and beyond …
