The story is inspiring and challenges common preconceptions about enlightenment, what it means and how it comes about.
The film includes previously unseen footage of Barry as he examines his realisations, speaks about the power of his love for woman, for God and truth, and reveals in simple words and ordinary ways both his genius and his humanity.
This is a visual counterpart to Barry's posthumous autobiography.
'My Life of Love and Truth' tells Barry Long's story from his early years in Australia to a career as a successful Australian newspaper editor; how he abandoned that world, went to India and then to England to be a writer; how the love of woman completely changed his life and a burning love of the truth utterly transformed him. It is Barry's own candid account of the succession of spiritual crises and realisations that made him a spiritual master.
"Liberation or spiritual freedom is not gained by trying to be like everyone else. Liberation is to have the will, the power, the simplicity to be what you are from moment to moment, without pretence and without considering what you or others think you should be or should not be. Naked of being anything you must stand, and stand alone."
We at The Barry Long Foundation are delighted to announce that now, almost ten years after Barry's death, his long-awaited autobiography has been released.
We have emailed the news to everyone whose address we have. Because of the high cost of mailing this book overseas from The Foundation's offices in Australia we recommend going to a bookstore or online retailer such as: Amazon.com USA, Amazon.co.uk Europe, or The Book Depository which offers free shipping.
