I love this interview; the classic interview from 2004 on Happiness. When David Heard and I had our preparatory pre-record discussion prior to making the recording, outside at a cafe in Hampstead, there were people listening in from other tables and gathering round, such was the passion and authenticity with which David was discussing the topics involved.

This essential ‘Call to Self’ cuts through the nonsense and self-defeating approval seeking that modern life has been caught up in.

By being true to ourselves we can make choices that fulfill our heart’s desire and honour our potential; not the potential that someone else deems we ‘should’ pursue, but our own intrinsic, internal sense of what’s important to us.
