In today’s episode, we discuss purpose, happiness, apprenticeship, and making choices.
In our first segment, Jenny and I talk about the tradition of learning from a master, like craftspeople traditionally have done.
In our second segment, Jenny and I consider the challenges of knowing what to do for work. We touch on the difference between wanting something from the “me” center versus finding what you love at your essence.
We also discuss what you can do, based on the nuances of dharma and karma, which is like fate, but different from fatalism.
I conclude with what some might call a rant about the marketplace and how it isn't very good at helping people execute their passions, because it favors certain kinds of work over others. I use Michael Moore's film Where to Invade Next for some examples. I highly recommend seeing it, if you haven't yet.
I mention ISHTA Yoga, where Jenny and I both teach classes, and I teach workshops and trainings.
