Why on Earth are You Here?

‘What are you and I doing here? This is such a profound existence. If you look at how it holds together it's just so superbly and supremely incredible. We are truly one and part of it. But what's the deeper mystery? Because anything so truly magnificent has to have a profound purpose.’

You are life. Life animates all things. Recognising this is the first step to seeing that material evolution is merely the means of a far greater becoming. Barry Long invites you to leave behind the turgid crawl of humanity - progress and pain - and take a giant leap which very few dare. To participate in a purpose as deep as time and as enlivening as the present moment. He shows you how the experience of living is continuously informing you of your own nature. And how this eventually empties you of your evolutionary past so that all that is left is the intelligence of life itself. This is the process of you becoming what you are the amazing journey by which life comes to know itself • Live recording, Gold Coast, Australia, July 2002
