The most important ingredient in life is honesty. None of us are perfect. And life is t about perfect. It is about falling down, getting up, and trying again. This book tries to take some of the wrappers off to see what's inside. Life is inviting us all to do the same. In 2001 I was fortunate eugh to play King Lear in Shakespeare's play. It finishes with the line 'Speak what we feel, t what we ought to say'. This is t easy. It is very difficult to speak the truth when all around are telling lies. The most powerful action is to speak up. And this is what is happening in our world today. In a very mysterious way a storm is blowing across the surface of the earth, the earth itself is rupturing itself and saying - eugh. Governments are toppling; our leaders are being asked bold questions; the Arab Spring; Occupy Wall Street in cities all over the world; the recent elections in Russia, with maybe 100,000 demonstrators pouring into the street accusing their leaders of election fixing and playing gangster; Europe's woes and the attempt by its leaders to make the problem all about finances and institutions; the United States with Congress and the President at a standoff over principles of government; the constant threat of war in the Middle-East; Africa's poverty; China's muscle flexing: all of these scenarios are the same. They are all about, equity, honesty, fraternity and the freedom to be us. 2012 if it means anything means - remove the pretence, stop playing the games. Everything that is happening in our world is the result of our own actions. There is body out there doing things to us. We do it to each other. The only crises are the games we have made up which allow winners and losers and give away our self responsibility. We could solve the problems of the world right w by untying the threads of all the lies we make up that turn us into strangers to one ather.
'To know how, how does it happen that the seed of an idea blossoms within the awareness and consciousness of the soul, and what determines what action they may take on that.' David Wilfrid Berresford was born in the Waikato, migrated to the north to finish his schooling and then to Wellington during his late teens, early twenties. He has lived in Auckland, New Zealand since he was 26. As a young man his journey took him from eastern mysticism as a sixteen year old; the Russian philosophy of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky at seventeen, being a student in the School of Philosophy studying practical philosophy until his late forties when he took to the stage, which he describes as 'teaching me in one night more than 30 years in the study of philosophy'. In 2001 after completing the role of 'King Lear' in Shakespeare's play of the same name, he had a conversation with a Spiritual Master, Raman Pascha, also known as the Master Khamouri, channelled by Yasmeen Clark. 'Windows in the Sky, Buddha is that you' is the story of this meeting. It is an unusual story of how the energy of an ascended Master, may release us from the power of limiting beliefs. It elucidates in a very easy to read and conversational style many 'new energy' ideas tying 'New Age' to neuroscience and mysticism and then 'holding the mirror up to nature' by showing how these ideas can be enacted in our life. David describes himself as a very normal sort of man. David Berresford actor, performance poet, writer and perennial philosopher...
