Everyday existential crisis (video/podcast)

Sooner or later, everyone comes to certain points in their life where they start to realise that they've devoted a substantial amount of effort to something that turns out to be bullshit. Sometimes it's a project or a partner that betrays them, but sometimes it's something more simple, like an idea.

If you base your identity on an idea, it is inevitable that the idea will one day fail, leaving you confused and disheartened, because no one concept can ever fully express the complexity that is you, and no one ideal can ever capture the elegant simplicity that is your essence.

The question is, what do you do when you reach one of these mini existential crises, or "inbetween places"? What is an effective attitude to address the emotional discomfort? And what are we all doing here on Earth anyway? These questions and more will go completely unanswered in this soul-shaking episode of... The Paradise Paradox!

Permanent writer's block, that's funny. Yes, the possibilities seem endless no matter what you decide. I get off track too. Actually feel like I'm more off track than on sometimes. It seems like part of me wants some ideal, perfect life of self-mastery, while another part of me says I need to struggle. Ideas of perfection and imperfection get in the way of understanding. Or something like that.

How long will you be in Asia? I plan on heading to Thailand at the end of December for about three weeks. Would be cool if we could meet up.


Hey Ken. I plan to make it back to Australia and spend Christmas with my family. We'll see what we can figure out.

I'm not certain where you are geographically located, but I'd love to share a brain entrainment technology with you that I have been working with for over 3 years. I think it would intrigue you from technical, philosophical, spiritual, neuropsychological, and psychedelic perspectives. I just posted a video about getting high without drugs that might intrigue you. I also upvoted and followed you today. Good Stuff.
