Compilation Of Russell Brand Interviews Proves The Only Thing That Matters Is Love (VIDEO)

Russell Brand Is A Sage

Comedian Russell Brand is slowly becoming better known for his philosophies on life and for the countries he has been banned from than his acting and comedy abiliities.

Give Brand a platform and he will preach, but there's something so right about his musings when spa music is used to back him up.

Brand talks about transcendental meditation and yoga as practices that should be integral to our lives, because they help us connect with ourselves, each other and the Earth. In one interview, he says, "If people have some sort of yearning, dissatisfaction or some itching irritability, then it might because they aren't looking in the right direction for a solution. They aren't looking within."

He tells that, through it all, human beings really are just seeking love. Brand talks about moving from a focus on the individual and toward spiritual connection.

I'm a person who believes in the nature of my own individualism and my own identity, but on a deeper level I recognize that all these things are transient, and that what's important, and what's defining is the things we all share: love, unity, togetherness. As long as we have cultural narratives that eschew these ideas, that suppress these ideas, in favor of negative human traits, greed selfishness, lust; as long as these ideas are promoted, we are all existing in opposition to one another, and everyone will be exploitable by corporations that prey upon these negative aspects of humanity.

So wise, Russell, so wise. Watch above.
