Gary Stretch, an acclaimed Hollywood actor, has stepped away from the artificial Hollywood way of life to seek out the world of truth within. From his experiences of travelling all over the world, he insists that despite the different religions that exists, we can all still live in this world together. The purpose of living should be about lending each other a helping hand. If people of all ethnicities and all religions just sit next to each other and meditate, once reaching the inner peace within ourselves, the world will be in peace and in harmony.
