WHAT DO YOU SEE?
Nick, the dude on the left, called me, the dude on the right and asked if I wanted to join a spontaneous trip to the far north of Norway. He had lined up an expedition to Norway to free dive with Orca Whales. And that's what we did.
I am pretty surprised by how deep this one clip got me thinking. Here's to more of it! As Alex Supertramp so beautifully puts it:
”Rather than love, money, faith, fame, fairness, give me truth.”
And I couldn't agree more! This quote comes from one of my all-time favourite books about Chris McCandless, a young man who walked deep into the Alaskan wilderness to seek enlightenment through solitude and contact with nature. Get a copy of the book here, or watch the film here if you haven't done so already.
But now, back to my initial question.
Do you ever go to church? If so, why? And if you don’t, where do you go, to whom do you speak to find answers?
For ages, folks have tried to make sense of life through science, religion, philosophy, and art. These fields aim to answer big questions like:
What is the meaning of life?
What is the nature of reality?
How should we live our lives?
Why do we thrive for clarity, though the beauty often lies in uncertainty?
Before you go, I want to leave you with a couple of lines written by Annie Dillard that put everything we talked about into perspective:
"...the idea was to learn things; that you learn a thing and then as a matter, of course, you learn the next thing, and the next thing... As I spoke, he nodded precisely in the way that one nods at the utterances of the deranged. "...And then," I finished brightly, "you die!"
Thanks for your attention, and I hope we will meet in real life soon. Take care*,
