We sat and there was nothing, and I saw you. We sat and there was nothing and I became aware of myself. This is about a visceral sense of self knowledge, where the time and space between any two people can collapse. Then what might drive your entire life might be so dramatically different.
Over these last few months there has been a quiet yet almost seismic shift in my sense of all of this. Certainly in my sense of what I must do now.
In many ways it is all quite simple. Binary in nature almost. A life lived ‘by one’, or a life lived ‘through one’. I first became aware of this binary nature whilst filming Soul Biographies, and noticing that words come from one of two places. Language was spoken by someone ‘to or at’ another in hope of a consequence, OR it was simple spoken ‘through’ someone with no thought of consequence.
Next Monday I am to recommence the weekly emails. I’ve been on a break.
Most weeks since 2005, I’ve emailed out short films and words that point to the mystical experience of being human. Each providing clues as to the whereabouts of a profound inner frontier and how we might reach it. You’d be very welcome to join us in the exploration.
