Buddhism has helped me to develop a more intimate relationship with the nature of my own mind. I have learnt through meditation practice that thoughts come and go of their own accord, endlessly. Thatís just the nature of mind. Between and underlying those thoughts, however, is a great stillness. Access to this stillness has been a great ally to me in making films.

When Iím practicing cinematography from this open, alert stillness, the most remarkable things arise. Iíll suddenly have an impulse to turn around and look in another direction, and thereís the very thing I was looking for: thereís the moment just before the sun peeks through the branches and illuminates the side of the elk, or thereís the expression on the face of the Tuareg as, seated on his camel, he turns. Iím able to engage these wonderful gifts that arise, because in that moment Iím living from a place that is infinitely more expansive and inclusive than the thought-box of my head.

Let us, then, labor for an inward stillness,
An inward stillness and an inward healing;
That perfect silence where the lips and heart
Are still, and we no longer entertain
Our own imperfect thoughts and vain opinions,
But God alone speaks in us, and we wait
In singleness of heart, that we may know
His will, and in the silence of our spirits,
That we may do His will, and do that only!

Henry Wordsworth Longfellow, Christus: A Mystery, part III. The New England Tragedies, Act 1, Scene 3
