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.
Join me this week as I talk about the importance of creating our own communities as a way to support each other. I speak about the rural community I live in and how living here has crystallised my sense of purpose in life. We all have a purpose but many have yet to discover it. Some people are simply here to be frequency holders, embodiers of love and compassion, as Eckart Tolle speaks about in his book “A New Earth”.
In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance of discipline in our everyday lives. Not the kind of discipline that we associate with control or punishment, but a higher octave of consciousness that keeps us from the inertia that often dominates our personal growth.
