Traveling Lighter with Paul Hedderman – Trailer
YouTube NOTES: Practical and profound, Paul Hedderman’s philosophy blends his experience in recovery with the wisdom of Advaita and Nonduality. He calls on us to consider our deeply held notions about self and awareness under a fresh light, and points to a simpler and lighter way of being in the world. A man of no pretense, Paul’s unique language and solid presence bespeak the depth of his understanding of the human condition—in which the original addiction is the mind’s addiction to being a self. Filmed in High-Definition and featuring music by Kirtan chant artist and sacred singer/songwriter David Newman. Available now at http://www.poetryinmotionfilms.com

To quote Scott,
“We live our lives asleep. Our minds are programmed for self-centeredness. This programming causes us to spend our lives seeking the future for a sense of contentment we can’t seem to find. It causes conflict in our relationships. To say that we live in self-centeredness is not a moral judgment. It’s a statement of fact.
The good news is that awakening from this self-centered dream is possible in this lifetime. This awakening reveals a depth of freedom and contentment that no relationship, job, material item, self-improvement plan, or any other accomplishment or attainment in the material world can bring.
This level of freedom frees us from our endless seeking towards future. It frees us from conflict so that our real nature as love shines through, affecting every area of our lives.”
