    Truer words have never been uttered. We are all unique from each other and its the smallest imperfections that make us who we are: the length and style of our hair, the footstep patterns of our feet as we run, the tone of our voice, and maybe… just maybe… the eyes of our friends/ family/ teachers/ lovers/ and heroes and how they look upon us. To the greatness that is EYES- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1TgD7uUfis

    Dear Allison,

    Mark Hildreth recommended to watch his
    conversation with his best friend, Keith Renier for inspiration and
    personal insight. I respect him as a great Canadian artist and
    philosopher and a soulmate of your colleague Kristin. Yet after a few
    minutes the first impression was quite sluggish. I`ve always had a
    high opinion and considered Mark an independent intellectual
    artist, with a hint of gnostic Lennonism in his heart, mind and soul.

    He describes Keith as a unique and
    passionate friend. But when you look behind the scene you find a
    completely different picture drawn. A failed multilevelmarketing
    entrepreneur, a self-induced guru gathering like minded followers who
    like to be labelled by their leader.

    I took time to review some of the
    conversations with independent minds such as you and always found the
    same pattern: The seeming dialogue turned out to be a monologue where
    Keith paraphrases a single statement by his dialogue partner to
    meander through his philosophical and psychological maps. You were
    mentioning an emotional training you had participated in, which
    apparently had changed your subconscious reference frame of every day
    settings. One thing I know after more than twenty years of personal
    experience in transformational works is, that a mind altering
    dialogue which in its essence is what coaching is all about, consists
    of listening, watching, listening, watching, listening, watching,
    respondingPeriod (exactly in this order and frequency). If you want
    to be a teacher it is absolutely ok to teach and spend most of your
    conversations talking (teaching, preaching) to others. It is a
    reflexive way of dealing with your outside world and it is based on
    self-engrandizement rather than self awareness leading to emphatic
    communication.

    Anyway the conversations with Keith
    inspired me to rethink my business model. In fact in a sharing
    community it is a powerful tool to record conversations between
    enlightened personalities on inspiring topics. I came to realize that
    I happen to spend most of my life with enthrilling inspiring and
    enlightening individuals creating masterpieces of conversation much
    like Plato and Aristotle did in the Greek antique.

    My belief: The inspired and enlightened
    mind is never seeking for guidance, she is seeking for insight. She
    even is IN SIGHT meaning
    that she is opening up her mind and soul for clairevoyant reading and
    empathy. This mind melt almost always leads to a symbiosis which from
    time to time may vary in its depth and complexity, as the mind and
    soul seem to organize and present themselves in layers, but it is
    always a deep and profound mutual experience of oneness, where the
    flow of thoughts, expressions and feelings intertwine between the two
    as one equal consciousness.

    When I do one on one coaching to elicit
    a new chapter of your life book (meaning that I work on an updated
    goal vision and turning a vague mental shadow of the future into
    powerful meaningful smart goals, that you can act out and turn into
    a desired future, it is exactly this process I have just
    stammered seeking for apropriate expressions.

    If I could make a simple wish, I`d wish
    that those talented and gifted pack, this new generation of
    performing artists would be of this breed, that they refrain from
    downsizing themselves to a mere subordinate of a self-employed
    superior mind that claims to represent a higher and sometimes even
    extraterrestrial conscience for the sake of a secret plan for
    salvation of an exclusive crowd of blind believers.

    Sometimes I sing with John, the most
    revolutionary non-believing artist of history:

    Imagine there`s no guru,… just you and I

    „Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s
    easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine
    all the people
    Living for today… Aha-ah…

    Imagine
    there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die
    for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life
    in peace… You…

    You may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not
    the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join us
    And the world will
    be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No
    need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the
    people
    Sharing all the world… You…

    You may say I’m a
    dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you’ll join
    us
    And the world will live as one

    Allison,

    I’ve yearned to be so close so much for so long, I’d give up the ability to be a free-willed, metaphysical entity just to join your spirit forever, only with the stipulation that you would never be with anyone else romantic ever.  Our spirits would be 1 united spirit.
