Join us in this interview with Richard Schooping. According to Richard, "I simply awoke". Richard suffered for more than 20 years with depression, fear, guilt, anger, judgment, confusion, a lack of connection and dis-ease. He lost friends and three lovers over 9 years to AIDS and then was diagnosed himself with cancer and AIDS in 2003 and thought that he was going to die. But upon introspection he realized that he was more than his thoughts because he was being aware of his thoughts. He realized also that he was more than birth and death. With this realization all fears of being were absolved and a peace enveloped him that revealed that all is in divine order. Richard went through “the dark night of the soul”. And as layer upon layer of who he thought he was dissolved, he slowly became more and more self-aware. At one moment he remembered that he is more than any created form and so ultimately they have no true effect on him. Now he is here grateful to utilize the gifts of this body to express the one love from which all flowers. Life is not about something else or something other, it is what is happening now. And when our mind calms we then have eyes to “see”. Richard is listening, singing, writing, sharing, and just playing and enjoying the blessings of each moment.
