Is changing ourselves the best way to change the world?

Should we focus on our own inner peace?

And let world peace take care of itself?

Or is there a need to play a more direct – more active – role in helping others who are suffering?

Check out this week’s episode of The Spiritual Freedom Show for an in-depth conversation about the real message of the New Age: Enlightenment through service.

Richard has appeared on hundreds of radio shows around the world and is the author of 11 books including Contacts With The Gods From Space and Realize Your Inner Potential, both of which he co-authored with Master of Yoga Dr. George King – his spiritual master.

    Brilliant, simply brilliant. Thank you Richard for expressing so eloquently and clearly the distinction between inner peace and world peace. There is no doubt that service in the midst of the clatter is the way to go today if we are to attain enlightenment. And thank you Darren for the excellent manner in which you led the discussion with your probing questions. Blessings to both of you.

    Another fantastic episode of the ways and whys of the (real) world. It staggers the imagination that this important human knowledge goes way back – at least here in the west – to the early 50s’! By this time, I would have thought more of the 8 billion souls on the planet would have been more enlightened. My light bulb went off when, for some reason I was driven to read ‘Autobiography Of A Yogi’ in the early 70s’. That (and others) have brought me where I am today. Thank You!

      Thank you, John! That book certainly does have a certain magic – hardly anyone I meet on the path who didn’t read it at some point in their spiritual awakening. Stay inspired!

    Great show. It is always good to be reminded of why we need to do service to others. It is is wise to see service among the clutter as an opportunity not as an obstacle. Thanks

      Totally – I think it’s a very helpful reframing. It helps us to cast off victimhood, inspires determination and invites us to be grateful for experience.
