In this episode, I talk to Dutch humanitarian and author Fred Matser, known for his charitable work across the globe, his partnerships with Mikhail Gorbachev, Patch Adams, Jerry Jampolsky and Jane Goodall, as well as for the metaphysics and philosophy of life described in his book ‘Rediscover Your Heart.’ Matser’s ideas echo Taoism and Advaita Vedanta, philosophical traditions thousands of years old. Yet, he’s arrived at his views through direct, personal experiences of his own, which he vividly describes in this episode.
Matser’s wonderfully intuitive articulation of his insights is captured in a series of short, declarative statements that resonate deeply with me. I believe you may find them of great value as well. Fred and I sat together a few times during a sunny autumn weekend in Oisterwijk, an idyllic southern Dutch town, to talk about life, the universe and everything. This episode is the result of those dialogues. Because it was recorded in person, I was sitting behind the camera this time and edited out my own voice. Fred’s discourse is best enjoyed pure and uncontaminated.
