318- Kierkegaard at Thanksgiving

If you could have Soren Kierkegaard over for Thanksgiving, what do you suppose he would say?”

In todays special Thanksgiving podcast and post, I use a little creative license to describe three levels of thanks which I have expunged from Kierkegaard’s work; “A Sickness Unto Death.” Strap on your existential thinking cap, because the turkey day conversation is going to the deep end.

Join me now as this post reveals just how far the modern mind has drifted in its ability to comprehend, yet alone appreciate, the thoughts of this philosopher. Perhaps it will perk your interest in rediscovering ideas for which the modern world has forgotten.

290-Launch Your Life 5- The Depth Delusion

“Does your life have a depth dimension or a depth delusion?

In the conclusion of our series entitled, “Launch Your Life,” we explore what is beyond a life of depth. In our world, we are conditioned to skim over reality and live in the unsatisfying quest for the “next thing” not realizing it is masking a pseudonym of despair.

Join me now as I endeavor to slow us down, muffle the noise and confusion of life, so that we can gain awareness to that “still small voice” which leads us to a multi-dimensional, abundant, satisfying and meaningful life.

286-Launch Your Life 1- What is My Life

“Is it possible you are living in despair and cannot perceive it?

Soren Kierkegaard said that the world lives in despair, refusing to become a self. If that is true then the lives that most people live are more about fiction, pretense, and self-delusion than they are about authenticity and ultimate reality. When I look at every strata of society, this is exactly what I see. In today’s podcast and post we begin a series entitled “Launch your Life” with a look at the question: “What is my life?”

Join me now as we see beyond our bodies and the way we spend our time to explore if we are ready to receive reality as it actually is, not as it is for us.

Join me now as we see beyond all of our effort and output and our climbing and striving, to discover what is really going on beyond it all.
