Recommended: Jay Garfield’s The Meaning of Life

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 05:25:24 +0000

The Meaning of Life is the first lecture series I’ve listened to from The Great Courses and it’s fantastic. The name is maybe a little too lofty, I’d have called it “How to Live,” but don’t let that dissuade you. The lecturer, Jay Garfield, is a professor at Smith College and Harvard Divinity School and […]

The 10 Best Links from Myth & Matter No. 13

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 16:09:22 +0000

This 1970’s quote by Joseph Weizenbaum made me uncomfortable: Programming “appeals most to precisely those who do not yet have sufficient maturity to tolerate long delays between an effort to achieve something and the appearance of concrete evidence of success.” Found in The Seventh Sense. Jewish Stars and New York Values – my new favorite […]

I Believe in Altruism

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:28:00 +0000

Altruism, selfless sacrifice for the benefit of others, is something that I keep coming back to because plays such an important role in what it means to be human. It’s easy and tempting to make the argument that everything humans do is motivated by selfishness. For example: You push a child off the train tracks, […]

Aesthetics and the Outdoors

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 23:29:00 +0000

Over the last few weeks I’ve had a few very different outdoor experiences in similar settings that have me thinking about the role of aesthetics in everyday life. Experience 1: Our family backpacked a short distance to the coast and spent a couple nights on the beach. On the second day we met up with […]

A Thousand Thousand Fragments of Light

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 05:04:00 +0000

Becoming Wise by Krista Tippet is quickly becoming one of my favorite books this year. Her interview with Rachel Naomi Remen was, for me, one of those eye and heart opening moments where I feel connected with humanity in an empowering way. This is the story Remen shared: In the beginning there was only the […]

The Future of Human Dignity

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 06:18:00 +0000

I love this quote from Krista Tippett, host of the On Being podcast, in her book Becoming Wise: [Einstein] began his life with a profound faith in the social good of the scientific enterprise—a community of cosmic endeavor that should transcend tribal rivalries and national boundaries. Then he watched German science hand itself over to […]

The Seventh Sense

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 03:39:14 +0000

The core idea behind The Seventh Sense is good. “The Seventh Sense, in short, is the ability to look at any object and see the way in which it is changed by connection.” Networks are changing the world and the implications of hyper-connectedness are changing the economy, politics, social relationships and just about everything else. […]

What Motivates Super-Achievers?

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 05:16:17 +0000

Is intense passion the best motivator for getting stuff done? It seems to be a reasonable enough proposition. When you look at the world’s top [insert-anything-here], they often seem to be driven by their demons. Maybe something happened to them when they were young that propelled them into a frenzy of productivity to prove that […]

Meditation in the Age of Apps

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 01:46:19 +0000

As meditation becomes more popular and accepted in the mainstream, many are exposed to it through by apps or drop-in classes. Just as yoga is much more than the physical actions of the Hatha yoga that most studios in the US practice, meditation is more than sitting silently focused on the breath or on a […]

Mystical Conversations

Mon, 09 May 2016 04:45:14 +0000

I just published another the 12th issue of Myth & Matter, here it is in case you haven’t subscribed yet. Derek Sivers has published more of his “directives.” Short, often controversial, statements on how to live. It’s unsourced, unexplained and distilled advice. For example “Do not be the starving artist, working on things that have great personal […]
