CAROLJEAN64, I, too, felt that he seemed manic. After having seen full interviews with him I'm sure it was the editing. When speaking about something one is passionate about and that is meaningful and full of wonder, speech might get hurried, eyes big, and one's excitement is obvious. I'm sure the maker of that montage choose all these choice bits of brilliance which can come off as-over-the-top. Nonetheless, he astounds me in his ability to articulate so seemingly easily about the biggest of things and to do so in so many different kinds of environments many of which I'm sure are not sympathetic to this sort of talk. I love that a comedian from popular culture is so much and so wise. But then again, I've always thought that the very best comedians are painfully wise.

He was fascinating to listen to, but almost a little too manic for me. However, he is repeating the eternal truths or the golden thread that is at the center of all profound belief systems. I have had brief moments of that feeling of the disillusion of self in mediation after yoga practice.

I posted this link on the Meditation & Mindfulness team page. I thought that this team might enjoy seeing it, too. This video was originally brought to my attention by my yoga teacher. I find it powerful: youtu.be/_bKQXmvdr8o
