My long-term creative commitment is to some degree, like ‘darshana’ or ‘something seen’, where learning is realised ‘as an integral part of character, conduct and consciousness’ (Easwaran 2012). In this sense, my goal is to contribute to the experience of ‘what it is to change’ - one can’t stay in alignment and not change.
