Some all important new words on Full and Undivided ATTENTION – and the conscious barrier you must decide to cross – are COMING SOON. Actually they will be a part of the new The Point of Us exploration. In the meantime know that the only way to have these films get to do their work (with you) is to switch off the world and offer your full, undivided and surrendered attention.
Undivided and So Still Attention
Before your words
and well-timed advice.
Before items gifted at
beyond an arms length.
Did you ever consider
the one thing that
might turn the
on its axis.
and so still attention.
“The room quietens as another film subject emerges deliberately from the assembled group. She, or he, approaches the Inner View Camera with something to say. Something worthwhile speaking. Words that have purpose, and an obvious use in his or her world. Perhaps even to the world at large. Words that set out to convince us all. But words that so often, have been previously spoken.
The subject sits. Close to the camera. Close to me. Eyes closed, ever deepening breath, as the spartan words of instruction remove any requirement from our time together.
The point of being here, that was so vividly etched into a previously important list is now lost, as the subject’s image is cast in high contrast black and white to a large screen. Arrestingly beautiful. Always.
We are all to be included unreservedly in this experience of the human soul made visible. Of humanity witnessed.
From a palpable and utter stillness, it is as if the subject ‘is being spoken’.
They are not speaking ‘to’ or ‘at’ the world in expectation of something in return, as is so often the case. There are words. And space. And an unbridled vulnerability of such profound importance that the audience cannot turn away. It is utter strength in physical form.
Here, there is nowhere to hide. Here there is no need to hide. Here there is the letting go of control. The control that kept us from seeing one another. And from seeing ourselves. Here, for this moment in time there is Freedom. There is Liberation and Insight. And previously undiscovered Genius. Here truth has been spoken out loud, and we have each been changed from somewhere deep inside.”
