Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds: Beyond Thinking?

I watched the movie 'Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds' yesterday and watching it is almost like a meditation on the wonder to being alive itself.
The four You Tubes making up the movie, as well as an interview with the filmmaker Dan Schmidt on Rick Bowman Archer's
'Buddha at the Gas Pump' podcast can be found by clicking on the link to my last post below -

Well worth watching if you have nothing to do;-)

The Buddha at the Charging Station?

Daniel Schmidt - Buddha at the Gas Pump
"Daniel is the creator of the award-winning film
"Inner Worlds Outer Worlds" as well as the ongoing "Samadhi" series.
He is also the founder of the Awaken The World initiative whose purpose is to bring the ancient teachings of Samadhi back to the world for free (in as many languages as possible)."
"Daniel's approach combines self-inquiry with traditional forms meditation so that participants have the opportunity to simultaneously realize their transcendent nature, and to purify themselves of conditioned patterns.
The pathless path is to realize an ever-deeping development process within the self structure, and to simultaneously realize what is always already beyond the self structure.
Samadhi is when the world that is constantly changing merges or unites with the changeless."
Is that some type of Zen kōan to set your mind to?-)
Something to think about ... or not;-)

42 Minutes Podcast Episode 13: Neil Kramer
I forgot that Neil Kramer is an author in the first 'Sync Book' until I listened to an old '42 Minutes' podcast from 2012 -

I like to think of Neil as the sermon giver of sync philosophy when I hear him speak.
I always wondered if Neil practiced what he preached in his own life.
But then again it doesn't really matter if a chain-smoking doctor is telling you that smoking is no good for your long term health when it's the advice that counts, whether the doctor follows his own advice or not.
Neil just always struck me as one of those people who want to sell their(?) advice much like an American New Age author and speaker in the Wayne Dyer type model.
I wouldn't really have a clue to Neil's motives in his line of work, but my skepticism has always made me put my money on the cash that could potentially come from the preaching to the wallet and purse bearers who may be listening.
But I guess a lot of individuals and institutions like to cash in on the peace message to get themselves a piece of the action.
I'm just cynical when it comes to people selling peace, but Neil does give interesting sermons from his pulpit, whether he believes them himself or not.
I did find the chat with Neil in the green room after his '42 Minute' podcast chat amusing, since the movie 'Brazil' was brought up -
