Richard Bartley, Interview #23

Name: Richard Bartley
Where do you live: Planet Earth, in a region called Ireland.
What do you do for a Vocation or Avocation? Sales/Co. Director, that pays the mortgage; I also work to try to bring World Peace closer, through a movement called The World Peace and Prosperity Movement. My new web site is it will be up and running during or after Easter.
Your two favourite books:
The Divine Art of Living by Mabel Hyde Paine and
The Hidden Words by Bahá’u’lláh
Your two favourite cd’s: “Bird” by Susan Lewis Wright. (Written and sung by her, it’s absolutely beautiful.
As we move along our favourites change, at the moment it’s Eckhart Tolle’s cd “The Flowering of Human Consciousness”, I see almost everything in a different way than he, but I listen to it a lot because I am being constantly reminded of my wish to live in my higher nature – mindful of the God within. His cd helps me to do that, and so for this I am extremely grateful to him.
Your favourite quote: “Let deeds not words be your adorning” again from “The Hidden Words”, for this reason I was reluctant to input to this Blog, but my love, respect and admiration for Sue (the inspiration behind the blog) left me no choice.
Your favourite web sites: The nearest thing I have to a favourite web site is the Google Search engine, how sad?
Your hero: ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
Why you are interested in spirituality?
Because “Man’s reality is a spiritual reality”, therefore to know this and then to ignore it would make no sense, and I’d like to think that my life does make sense, besides, the all most beautiful and meaningful things in my life are as a result of spirituality.
A spiritual lesson you hope to learn? A spiritual lesson I hope to learn is how to deal with the responsibility of winning a million on the lotto… no to be serious, I hope to learn to live a contented, happy and joyful life – and to some degree to know and love God.
A place in the world where you feel spiritually “connected” Probably in my garden, but certainly with those I love.
