We are seeing the world reforming in front of our eyes. The question is, do we like what we see? Reformation of any kind causes disruption to the old order as new truths are brought to light. Will we continue to play it safe and believe the narrative that we are weak and powerless? Or will we make an effort to seek the truth, call out hypocrisy and lies, and take action to build our lives anew?
In this week’s podcast I talk about nihilism and the futility of existence. Why do things matter to us, or not? Is it worth living a life that we feel is empty and meaningless, or does that attitude set us free? A lack of meaning can lead to depression, which is in itself comforting on some level as we perceive ourselves as victims. Wish fulfillment and magical thinking can seem like an easy way to combat depressive states of consciousness, but often leave us feeling unfulfilled. Wishing for a thing doesn’t make it so; it’s a deep examination of our values that reveals our purpose.
