Excerpt: 

 

TOMASZ: I would like to interview you and mainly concentrated on you.

 

ARNY: That will be fun because I am an unknown, like everything else, so that can only be fun!

 

TOMASZ: When I am reading your books—for example, your last books like Dreaming While Awake, The Shaman’s Body, Earth Based Psychology, and also when I read your books after the Dreambody—I always think, “Is the author of the books, the author of these methods, a person who can consider himself a happy man, unified with the universe, unified with everything that is happening?” That is how I understand process work, in some ways, to feel unified with everything that happens. Do you feel yourself unified with everything in your life?

 

ARNY: Yes, no, and yes! What I mean by that is that in the moment I am in touch and unified with what is happening with me. I see you there on the video screen, I see the wood there behind your head, and you can see something of my office here, and that is some of me. And I am going to turn the video—I am not sure if you will be able to see the sea? Can you see it a little bit? These big windows look at the Oregon coast and the sea, and through those windows we see whales, and what have you. And to be unified with the universe for me means to be in touch with what I experience in my body and what I see outside.

"Take responsibility for what you love as an act of seircve"in other words do not spend your attention to where the money goes, deny the ranking of money which is most case the antipart of practicing love.The ranking with money but is a progress compared to the arguing with supremate power and sword.To let of the orientation of money without knowing what it exactly does, denying in so far the progress of liberty that cames with the arguing of money (e.g. women libaration).I am unable to take greed-based as a serious argumentation. We ever live in this or that ranking system, mediated throug the way we spend our attention. If money is the kingmaker everyone will get most of it because this is the best solution in this system.But if the ranking system with money is away, I doubt if the door to the future gets open, but I know for sure, all doors to the past will be reopened.To advance in our inalienable ranking system, a harder value must be set that gets attention before the attention for money attacks. This value moreover must be closer to dignity as the arguing with money this is compared for instance to the arguing of power and sword. What such a value could be: through the hierarchy of the money not vulnerable tenant law. The basic. The great laws that promise to protect your home against violently assault do not protect you if your money bilance is behaving alike. I had the occasion to learn about the outcoming of a hippie community which was founded with similar poetically tinted lovehopeloops in the sixties. Very sober an experience, I can only say. The wealthiest, who owned the land floated above the clouds. Its construction was in contrast to the huts of the other to name a palace. Thrive and spoil seemed to depend on him, without anyone would have dared to say aloud. Plenary sessions were held for years no longer. What was said about the back took account.
