ANIMA [Documentary]

An·i·ma [an´ĭ-mә]: The Latin translation of the Greek word ‘psyche’.

1. The inner self of an individual (soul); a relationship with “that which is greater than self”.

2. Expressions of the unconscious or true inner self of an individual (Carl Jung's school of analytical psychology).

Stephen Fry was my newest discovery with this 2011 documentary. I only knew his face then I Wikipedia'd him and BAZOUKA... that's what I found:

Stephen John Fry (born 24 August 1957) is an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television presenter, film director, and a director of Norwich City Football Club.

I was dumbfounded, bedazzled, and flabbergasted all at once. A true reminder of how one can be known for having done/doing many things. One doesn't have to spend their lives seeking to become a “specialist” in a single field as many people tend to do. It's a similar approach to the Liberal Arts system of education, but on a life-long span.

So just keep doing what you feel like doing and you can't really miss. Even if it means spending your life exploring various endeavours. 

For those who have a special relationship with their Anima, “that which is greater than self”, have its energy flowing through them. With practice, and confidence, they lean how to tap into it and use it as a source of inspiration which guides them in their exploration.

Enjoy this compelling eye-opening documentary.

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”

EDIT [Dec, 2018]:
It seems the video was taken down from Vimeo as well as from Top Documentary Films

    1. Nope. While checking on it recently before posting it to Facebook, I couldn't find it. I searched all over, but nope. I am fairly certain we could [still] download it from somewhere.
