EP 12: What's the point? Is it all meaningless?

16m | Aug 20, 2021

“What’s the point? Is it all meaningless?” Maybe. Maybe not. These are questions Roy has been wrestling with lately after noticing feelings of apathy and absence of joy and fulfillment. While it is our natural tendency as humans to avoid pain and seek pleasure, the experience of existential dread may be a necessary part of the process of spiritual growth and evolution. In this episode, Roy touches on what factors have lead to him being in this state of apathy, his attempts to wrestle with it in a mindful manner, and takeaways he has gotten from reading The Alchemist by Paul Coelho. If 2020 and 2021 have left you reeling, now is the most opportune time to face these deep existential questions; you will not fair well if you continue to avoid them.
