May 10th, 2021A few years ago my mentor told me the following …There are no parents upstairs.He told me this during a great doubt in my life. Everything was so fucking complex, and this was before COVID came online. Even doing the basic stuff was difficult. Being organized with my health and finances was hard enough, so was determining what my career path should be, not to mention the pressure of getting all my relationships right.It was not just the practical stuff though, but also dealing with all the nebulous psychological stuff, such as shame, cognitive distortions, limiting beliefs, intergenerational trauma, and …

Awakening from The Meaning Crisis (Episodes 49,50) commentary. Concluding Remarkshttps://youtu.be/kkykBqApP4AMaking my way through the 50 videos of ‘Awakening From The Meaning Crisis’ has been similar to reading a big fat 19th Century Novel—even if John Vervaeke’s style is much more hospitable and congenial than that of Fyodor Dostoevsky. The series is intricate, highly conceptual, but at the same time Vervaeke is on fire with dramatic urgency. I suspect most people will give up listening at around episode 20 due to the conceptual complexity of the series, but the hard core listener will be rewarded richly if he or she can …

A short commentary on John Vervaeke’s Awakening from The Meaning Crisis (Episodes 46, 47, and 48)https://youtu.be/qrkqopjEceUKairosIn the final episodes of ‘Awakening from The Meaning Crisis’ series, John Vervaeke proposes certain ‘prophets of the meaning crisis’? But what does he mean by prophet? And who are the prophets we should listen to—as one world falls apart and we move into a brave new world with all its dystopian and utopian possibilities?The prophet sees the kairos, which means a threshold or turning point in history. He or she is not a fortune teller or an occultist in Vervaeke’s formulation, but more like a …

A short commentary on John Vervaeke’s Awakening from The Meaning Crisis (Episodes 43, 44, and 45)In the present meaning crisis, according to John Vervaeke, we tend to ‘conflate the having mode with the being mode‘—or mistake the ‘product’ for the ‘process’—the shallow representation for the real. Wisdom means to know and love what matters deeply. But wisdom, like love, is not something we can have or acquire — it is deeply existential, complex, and about being in the world.Vervaeke points out that while there are many valid scientific or psychological theories of wisdom, they too often focus on the product of wisdom—rather than the …
