Human interests are temporary. Those interests which change your life, of course become permanent. These changes, if they are made through some kind of help, it indicates that the help is real. Help is real only if after having received it, there is no need for any other help. Trust in life is enough, with or without help. Life to man is a journey through a series of events. Man will realize that life is a singular movement, and events are merely an interpretation. Life is not making a journey. The journey is making life.
Typical movies take us to far away places and make us feel as though we were there.Â Of course a talk show is a completely different experience.Â
With so many videos in this festival, isn't it amazing that we are each immediately attracted to what has interest for us?Â Especially for those of us with a modest lifestyle without much travel or break from our routine.Â It definitely seems rewarding to relish beautiful cinematography, music and subject matter to enrich our normal lives.Â There is a value in that.Â These are all the things that are "Out There".
In our series of talks, we are curious about what is the mechanism that forms our interest.Â Why does our attention take the focus that it does take and what choice, if any, do we have in the matter.Â We do not suggest that one should be substituted for the other, just to notice.Â This comprises what is "In Here."
