Sharing a short clip from my recent shoot in Japan for another project – Reactor. In this video, Buddhist teacher and yogi Michael Stone shares his thoughts on what it truly means to be in the present moment. For him, there is no difference between being present and being generous – at ease with the flow of life. This is the presence that permeates the Occupy movement… to show up is to truly give each other and the planet our attention.

“Love is the felt experience of connection to another being. An economist says ‘more for you is less for me.’ But the lover knows that more of you is more for me too. If you love somebody their happiness is your happiness. Their pain is your pain. Your sense of self expands to include other beings. This shift of consciousness is universal in everybody, 99% and 1%.”
