Published on Aug 10, 2013: Musician and spoken word artist Daniel Sperry eloquently expresses Kabir, the mystical poet and saint of India. Accompanied by his cello and piano as a modern day troubadour bard, Daniel has been speaking the poetry of ancient mystics such as Rumi, Hafiz and Kabir along with contemporary poets such as Mary Kenyon and William Stafford. Daniel is available for private concerts and original musical portraits; he can be reached through his website ( or by email at

All cinematography was done in Fairfield, a small town in southeastern Iowa known for its creativity, innovation and dedication to growth in individual and collective consciousness. Cinematography of Daniel was done at a house concert, also in Fairfield.

I did all camera work, editing, motion graphics, color grading and directing. Cinematography was done using a Canon 5DM3 with Canon L Series lenses and Rhode microphones. Feel free to go to my media website – marcbaraka,com.

Thank you, Daniel Sperry, for you divine artistry.

this is POWER…

An awe-inspiring balance of power and sensitivity. Thank you, Daniel Beaty!

life is a love affair…

“Life is a love affair, it is poetry, it is music. Don’t ask ugly questions like, What is the purpose? because the moment you ask it, you disconnect yourself from life. Life cannot be bridged with philosophical questions. Philosophy has to be put aside.”   ––   Osho

i thank You God…

e.e. cummings:

i thank You God for most this amazing

day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees

and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything

which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,

and this is the sun’s birthday;this is the birth

day of life and of love and wings:and of the gay

great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing

breathing any–lifted from the no

of all nothing–human merely being

doubt unimaginable You?
