THE SOCIETAL JOURNEY

We also need to contribute to our fellow beings if we wish to be truly alive. We are most alive when we engage societally - by acting for and revering human life, committing to our life-purpose and meaningful work, interacting with those we help, transforming politics, and acting globally and for future generations - as an expression of the deep connection to life that comes from life-affirming death awareness.

Human Life

It is harder to feel reverence for human life than nature or a divinity, but doing so is key to being truly alive.

3. Meaningful Work and
Life-Purpose

Facing death can increase our desire to risk making our work more meaningful, and to commit to our real life-purpose.

That Transforms

Nothing enlivens more than transformative political action. And nothing is harder to achieve.

generational action

Truly facing our death leads us to act globally, and as ancestors concerned with our descendants.
