The Surrender Of All Notions Of A Different Future

Posted by on Jan 19, 2018 in Poetry, Soul Biographies Inner View Method

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

The Loss of Clothing

Posted by on Jan 16, 2018 in Poetry

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.

The Loss of Clothing

A man clothed from
a wardrobe
fashioned by
his own success,
caught in-sight
as to the route
of his own
undeniable journey
towards awareness …

How Business Owners Get Purpose Wrong

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 …

What Was Revealed in Dallas

There is this field. The field is the very atmosphere in which I film. It elicits something different in nature. And in Dallas, I sat in this field. This time, in front of the camera. And this is what happened.

Forever on the Far Side

Posted by on Dec 13, 2017 in Observations, Poetry

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

Forever on the Far Side

On the Possession of an Adventure

Posted by on Nov 1, 2017 in Poetry

Did you ever possess
an adventure
to call your own?

One that ran through
your veins like
blood caught fire.

Causing your heart
to beat far
beyond
its chest.

Did you ever possess
such an adventure?

A Rethink on Leonard Cohen’s Near Immortal Line

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017 in Observations, Poetry, Words

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.

The Man in the Cottage

Posted by on Oct 22, 2017 in Films, Soul Biographies Experience

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 …

I Wish People Would Understand Each Other. That’s it.

Posted by on Jul 25, 2017 in Images, Soul of America
I Wish People Would Understand Each Other. That’s it.

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 …

We Actually Look At Each Other Differently

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.’

In That Silence Everything Changed Forever

Posted by on Jul 11, 2017 in Behind the Film, Events, Testimonials

I’m often contacted by those who have been in front of the camera. A few weeks ago I received these few words from one such subject, filmed recently on Continental Europe;

“… in that silence everything changed forever.’
