Our deepest fear…

Open Book On Wood Background - Photo © Robert Marfin / Photos.com“As I interpret the Course, ‘our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections
on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
(1992)

You must learn one thing…

Open Book On Wood Background - Photo © Robert Marfin / Photos.com

“When your eyes are tired
the world is tired also.

When your vision has gone
no part of the world can find you.

Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes 
to recognize its own.

There you can be sure
you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb
tonight.

The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing: 
the world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn

anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.”


David Whyte, Sweet Darkness, in: The House of Belonging (1996)

“Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes.”

Did You Used to be R.D. Laing? (Full Documentary)

Video (EN, 1 h 32 min)

Did You Used to be R.D. Laing? (1989)

Full documentary portrait of Ronald David Laing (1927-1989) filmed in Vancouver by Kirk Tougas and Tom Shandel during the last two years of Laing’s life.

Released on Channel Four (UK) in October 1989.

Source: www.youtube.com/watch?v=86t5GWB5qRY

Film introduction:

“Scottish psychiatrist R.D. Laing gained a reputation in the late 1960′s for his radical objection to conventional psychiatry.

His early books “The Divided Self” and “The Politics of Experience” questioned the right of society to proclaim itself sane and others mad.

Protesting the “outrageous violence” inflicted on patients by drastic therapies like electric shock, he generated controversy with his willingness to try psychedelic drugs, meditation, and other unconventional techniques in search of a healing common ground between doctor and patient.

Now in his early 60′s, after some 35 years of professional practice, he agreed to be videotaped in public lectures and private conversations, giving this portrait of Ronald David Laing, psychiatrist.”

DVD Description:

“Drawing on stories from Laing’s own life and from his patients’ experiences, and following him through a series of lectures and workshops, the film presents a portrait of the radical psychiatrist as an engaging, witty and irreverent character.

Laing shares his insights into the art of therapy, the lies we tell each other in the name of love, the recurring patterns of behavior that sometimes can be traced to birth, and the regrettable human instinct to suppress any behavior and thought that is strange or disturbing.

The film reveals its subject as a thinker of great originality and genius whose compelling charisma and gusto made him an equally effective storyteller and prankster.”

Reviews:

“The film itself is a fine example of the subtle directness and simplicity that Laing asks for, being at once convivial and co-present.” — The Guardian

“Fascinating profile of the radical psychiatrist, the viewing surprise of the week.” — The Sunday Times

“Laing is pure pleasure to watch, a huge spirit, genuinely loving and completely honest. This portrait of him is completely inspiring.” — The Vancouver Sun
