Koizen asked : you have opinions of Astrophysicist, gods, spirituality…why not Ghosts… spirits ? Koizen, I actually do not disbelieve in ghosts or spirits, nor do i subscribe to the fear factor associated with ghosts. I believe we live in the constant ‘presence’ of consciousness of all beings and thought, including our own consciousness too. But none of that is defined or individual. It is all interconnected and formless. However any passionate desire to ‘feel’ that presence will create an individuality of that presence in the form we imagine. It is not ‘present’ in it’s individual form, till our desire, fear, passion or love creates around us that individual presence.
.Take for example the filming of New York I love which I recently completed. It was the last script Anthony wrote before he died. And just before he went into hospital, he asked me if I would direct it. I was looking for guidance in the shoot. To interpret his script. To understand what he was looking for. I knew it was impossible to shoot the 7 page script in two days, but I had to achieve the impossible. In the end there is a film with some of the most beautiful images I have ever shot. In the end there is a short 13 minute film that inexplicably moves people, without being able to define the film. The only way I could have done this is by being guided by something outside me. And my belief is that I was being guided by Anthony’s spirit….. … faced with uncertainty, I actually visualized Anthony Minghella smiling and laughing at my predicament. Subconsciously I was calling upon his spirit to guide me through. And so it did. I can in all honestly say that I have no I idea why I find the film so moving.
So the question is that are we completely responsible for the decisions we take ? And the result of those decisions ? As I have often said on this website, I believe that the Universe is ultimately chaotic and not unless we embrace that chaos, are we able to come to harmony. Otherwise we live in the illusions of control.
So yes, I believe in spirits and ghosts. They are an integral part of the universe that we are integral part of. Our own spirits and our own ghosts exist at the same time we do. Ghosts and Spirits are part of universal consciousness individualized through our imagination and passion,
