Where Did the Idea Come From?
We came up with the idea after noticing a common thread of isolation in today’s society. This video aims to address the vulnerability that is often avoided in making sustained eye contact with members of the public. Holding eye contact with another person can evoke many feelings which can be scary, especially when in today’s society we tend to repress our deepest emotions. It calls on true courage to trust another being to see you and accept you just as you are, in a complete state of vulnerability. We also noticed that making eye contact with strangers is commonly intertwined with the idea of unwanted sexual attention. We believe eye contact is much deeper and far more meaningful than anything a sleaze might be able to bring to it. So instead of complaining about this misrepresentation we found an inspiring way to allow members of the public to actively participate in the other side of the story.
1. We are 600x more creative than we think.
When we allowed ourselves to be creative, we gave ourselves a shared task to explore and human magic occurred as the result.

Have you ever thought the edit button enables us to present a perfected image of ourselves to the online world? How truthful are we really when we’re given the option to omit? Online dating, emails, facebook pages, blogs, youtube channels all give us the option to edit, revise and leave out. But does this also remove an element of our humanness? What about that normal not so sexy stuff that happens in daily life? As a breathe of humanness, The Liberators and I created a funny collection of ridiculous faces! Enjoy.

This has hands down been the wildest, most wonderful year of my life! Each and every week has felt like a rocket fuelled off-road adventure that’s taken me deeper and faster down into the depths of accessing the power of the universe. This 42 second video will show you some of the moments we’ve created & shared over the past year.
Ever wonder how The Liberators International is able to create so many inspiring acts in public? I quite simply dedicate my entire life into managing the movement, editing the videos, running the facebook page, thinking of the next experiment, building networks, creating events, managing events, listening to the tribe, responding to emails and consistently going into my own fear so that we able to free ourselves from yesterdays story.
This is it! Tomorrow on Sunday the 3rd of May more than 500 people from all over the world join in the world’s biggest trust experiment. Each and everyone who participates sends in the video which will be combined to create one short and very powerful video message that will premiere here on Inspiralight. I’d be honoured to share this moment with you. Join the experiment here.
