We Live in a Divine Painting: 3 Videos to Refine Your Perception

Recently I’ve started recording a lot of videos.

This is partially because I’ve been building the  Amor Fati Course—an upcoming course on how to love life.

As I’ve done this, I’ve realized that video as a medium allows me to convey much more of my lifeworld than I am able to through text alone. It allows me to provide more of an experience of my reality.

On one hand this seems obvious, but the extent to which this is true didn’t really sink in until I actually dug in and started recording videos.

I now feel strongly that video will be a bigger part of everything I do moving forward, and I’m excited to do more exploration of the possibilities offered by this medium.

Today I’d like to share with you three of the videos I’ve recently recorded. I hope you enjoy them:
