We know that death is ahead for every one of us. It’s part of the circle that none of us escape. But what if life exists on the other side of death just as the natural world teaches us.
In this final episode of the series, I explore what the physical body can teach us about how we do the work of becoming. It is work for sure, but it’s not the work of defining an identity, it’s the work of living an identity.
The epigenome, vinyl records, and Stephen Pressfield’s angel midwives.
What if, instead of defining the meaning of our life and existence with our efforts, we are endowed with meaning already? Instead of creating self we find self.
Our life is defined by three points of identity – me, you, and us. And it’s the dynamic interplay between these three that creates a resonance in our life and imbue our being with its “one of an eternity” quality, something John Duns Scotus, 12th-century philosopher, and theologian, called “thisness”.
