In this inspiring short talk, Richard Rudd shows us the true nature of complexity as a form of forgetting. The more we focus our attention on the phenomena of the outer world, the more we are caught in the web of the inessential, where complexity rules. Richard gives us a very practical tool – the art of pausing – which opens up the field of our true self so that we can begin once again to see the beauty of our inner nature. Complexity transforms into simplicity, as we allow the colours of our desires to stand out against the white canvas of our soul. Life then begins to resound with the Quintessence – that exquisite spontaneous passion that keeps pouring out of the mystery of the Self. This is a juicy and uplifting revelation!
