Caer Hallundbaek speaks with David Ord of Namaste Publishing – publisher of books by authors including Ekhart Tolle, Michael Brown and others whose works that focus on present moment awareness. He is also the author of 'Your Forgotten Self' and 'Lessons in Loving - A Journey into the Heart.' His work and his spiritual journey have been inspired in large part by the classic book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery – The Little Prince. Through this book, Ord made a deep connection between the Little Prince and the persona of Jesus that transformed his understanding – and living – of life. Topics in this hour include: Ord's upbringing in the Church of England, as a child raised in Yorkshire; his experience of encountering 'The Little Prince' and the eye-opening effect it had on his spiritual life; the connection he made between The Little Prince and Jesus of Nazareth; how they introduce us to our true self; the ‘real’ Jesus; how we don't want to meet the real Jesus, preferring a religious figure who is more mysterious to us, because we don't want to meet our 'real' self; present-moment awareness; how it is practiced; how the difficult, painful times that come into our life are intended to crack open the shell of our false egoic self so that who we really are can at last emerge; how it affects relationships; more.
