January 23, 2023 Sometimes the fog blocks are literal view of the landscape that we are in, and sometimes our own mental fog of trying to control and fix everything blocks our view as well. We are and have everything we need at this very moment – we just have to relax into it. In this episode we will learn to relax into the openness in us that is already there. Listening portion: Oh do you have time to linger For just a little while Out of your busy And very important day For the goldfinches That have gathered in a field of thistles For a musical battle, To see who can sing The highest note, Or the lowest, Or the most expressive of mirth, Or the most tender? Their strong, blunt beaks Drink the air As they strive Melodiously Not for your sake And not for mine And not for the sake of winning But for sheer delight and gratitude – Believe us, they say, It is a serious thing Just to be alive On this fresh morning In this broken world. I beg of you, Do not walk by Without pausing To attend to this Rather ridiculous performance. It could mean something. It could mean everything. It could be what Rilke meant, when he wrote: You must change your life.

Rafael Cadenas (Venezuela, 1930) Nacido en Lara, publicó su primer poemario en una imprenta local de Barquisimeto, con prólogo de Salvador Garmendia. Desde temprana edad combinó la pasión por la literatura con la militancia política en el Partido Comunista de Venezuela. Por esta razón sufrió cárcel y exilio durante la dictadura de Marcos Pérez Jiménez. Se refugió en la isla de Trinidad hasta 1957. En Caracas escribe y publica Una isla (1958) y Los cuadernos del destierro (1960). Durante esos años forma parte del grupo de debate político y literario «Tabla redonda», junto con Manuel Caballero, Jesús Sanoja Hernández, Jacobo Borges, entre otros. Contrajo matrimonio con Milena González Carvallo, de quien enviudó en 2017. Es profesor jubilado de la Escuela de Letras de la Universidad Central de Venezuela. Dotado de una refinada sensibilidad para la experiencia poética, este singular poeta venezolano se caracteriza por crear una obra densa y estrechamente vinculada al pensamiento filosófico. Siguiendo la tradición de Hölderlin, Rilke y José Gorostiza, su poesía parece fusionar los derroteros de la actitud reflexiva con la inspiración pura. Su poema más famoso «Derrota» ha trascendido como la marca poética de la generación de los años sesenta. Su obra más celebrada es el poemario Amante, en el que expresa toda su fina sensibilidad. Publicó su primer poema en su natal Barquisimeto, Cadenas reside actualmente en la ciudad de Caracas en Venezuela. Cadenas fue galardonado en 2022 con el Premio Miguel de Cervantes de literatura, siendo el primer venezolano en recibir el reconocimiento Poema: Derrota (Rafael Cadenas) MS: David Bowie - Heroes Voz y montaje: Manuel Alcaine

Kürzlich erschien der Briefwechsel zwischen Ingeborg Bachmann und Max Frisch, einem der berühmtesten Liebespaare der deutschsprachigen Literatur, als gebundene Ausgabe. Schon vor einigen Jahren besprach ich Helmut Böttigers Werk “Wir sagen uns Dunkles” in dem es um die, möglicherweise etwas weniger bekannte, Beziehung zwischen Ingeborg Bachmann und Paul Celan geht. Eine gute Gelegenheit sich auch diesem Werk wieder einmal zu widmen und defintiv eine Empfehlung für den Gabentisch.Schon seit vielen Jahren lese ich Gedichte. Mein Interesse gilt dabei jedoch, offen gestanden, weniger der modernen Lyrik und Neuerscheinungen, als vielmehr Dichterinnen und Dichtern, die vor Jahrzehnten, wenn nicht sogar Jahrhunderten, geschrieben haben. Mich fasziniert ihre Sprache und die Geschichten, die sie uns mit ihrer Lyrik erzählen, ebenso wie deren persönliche Lebensgeschichte. Und dass diese Faszination auch auf andere übergreift, sehen wir dann unter anderem an Buchveröffentlichungen, die sich auf neue Art und Weise versuchen, den bereits Verstorbenen und ihrem Leben zu nähern. Ein Beispiel hierfür ist das bereits vor einiger Zeit von mir besprochene Werk Konzert ohne Dichter von Klaus Modick, welches sich einerseits um den Maler Heinrich Vogeler, andererseits aber auch um seinen Freund und Dichter Rainer Maria Rilke dreht und ihn in ein, für mich, neues Licht rückt. Aber die Lyrik Rilkes ist nicht nur heute noch beinahe zeitlos schön, sondern inspirierte auch andere zum Schreiben. Einer dieser Dichter, der zumindest in seiner frühen Phase von seiner Verehrung für Rilke zehrte, war der Rumäne Paul Celan. Vielen, so auch mir, als Dichter der Todesfuge und bedeutender Nachkriegslyriker bekannt, kaufte ich mir vor einigen Monaten ein vom Insel Taschenbuch verlegtes schmales Büchlein mit Liebesgedichten Celans, um seine Lyrik besser kennenzulernen. Dieser schmale Gedichtband beinhaltet unter anderem das Gedicht Corona, dessen Text namensgebend für das wiederum von Helmut Böttiger 2017 von der Deutschen Verlags-Anstalt veröffentlichte Werk Wir sagen uns Dunkles ist.In Böttigers Werk geht es konkret um die Liebesgeschichte und die Verwobenheit der Leben Ingeborg Bachmanns und Paul Celans. Die Geschichte bzw. den Mythos um die beiden Hauptpersonen bringt Böttiger direkt zu Beginn seines Buches, ohne lange Umschweife auf den Punkt. Sie, 22 jährig und aus Klagenfurt in Österreich stammend. Er, 27 jährig und gebürtig aus Czernowitz, Rumänien. Als sie sich 1948 in Wien treffen, sind beide der literarischen Öffentlichkeit noch unbekannt und ihre gemeinsame Zeit dauert gerade einmal sechs Wochen. Böttiger fügt hinzu, dass über diese Zeit, aufgrund der Tatsache, dass die beiden literarisch noch unbedeutend waren, nichts bekannt ist. Man könnte sich nun die Frage stellen, wie er ein Buch über deren Liebesgeschichte schreiben will, wo er uns doch bereits auf der zweiten Seite deutlich macht, dass deren wichtigsten bzw. grundlegenden sechs gemeinsamen Wochen im Dunkeln liegen.Doch es ist das Besondere an diesem Buch, dass es ihm gelingt. Und zwar zum einen anhand diverser Briefwechsel zwischen Bachmann und Celan, die erst später einsetzen, aber durchaus einen Teil des Erlebten anklingen lassen und zum anderen natürlich Korrespondenzen, die die beiden mit Freunden, Verlegern und anderen, ihnen nahestehenden Personen führten. Und es gibt noch eine zweite Komponente, die er nutzt und die diese Art Literatur so spannend für mich macht. Es ist die Sprache. Sehr genau untersucht und analysiert er die Formulierungen in ihren Gedichten. In Gegenüberstellungen zeigt er, wie sie aufeinander Bezug nehmen, Motive des jeweils anderen aufgreifen, verändern, variieren und zu einem neuen Schluss bringen, oder ihnen eine neue Bedeutung geben. Wie lange würde ich selbst brauchen, um nur ansatzweise jemals zu den Erkenntnissen zu kommen, die Helmut Böttiger uns hier so deutlich und beinahe offensichtlich präsentiert? Vermutlich nie. Wie viel würde mir von der Tiefsinnigkeit ihrer Gedichte, ohne das Wissen um den anderen, vielleicht sogar verborgen bleiben? Natürlich würde es meine Begeisterung für deren Gedichte nicht schmälern, aber so wird diese Begeisterung sogar noch gesteigert, weil Helmut Böttiger mir auf circa 260 Seiten die Möglichkeit bietet, deren Wirken noch tiefer zu durchdringen.In Wir sagen uns Dunkles beschreibt Böttiger die Liebesgeschichte Bachmanns und Celans von ihrem Kennenlernen im Mai 1948 bis zu deren Tod. Immer geht es dabei aber auch um deren individuelle Entwicklung. Beispielsweise um die Gruppe 47, die beide zur selben Zeit das erste Mal besuchten, über Erfolge und Misserfolge und damit verbundenem Neid und Solidarität, über Liebschaften und Ehe, aber auch Heimatlosigkeit und Verlust wie Celan sie in einer Weise erfuhr, die ihn für den Rest seines Lebens und auch in seiner Dichtung stark prägen sollte.Ich kann Helmut Böttigers Wir sagen uns Dunkles nur uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Ähnlich wie das von mir bereits am Anfang angesprochene Buch Klaus Modicks, verbindet es Elemente von Autorschaft, Privatleben und Dichtung und gibt dem Leser die Möglichkeit, durch seine intensive Recherche, neue Zusammenhänge zu erfahren und ein besseres Verständnis für die Protagonisten und deren Werke zu entwickeln.In dem von mir angesprochenen Gedichtband über Celan fand ich ein Gedicht, welches mich schon beim ersten Lesen faszinierte und nach Wir sagen uns Dunkles noch eine neue Nuance an Bedeutung bekommt. Mit diesem Gedicht, mit dem Titel Aubade was im Gegensatz zur Serenade steht und so viel wie Tageslied bedeutet, möchte ich meine Rezension schließen.AubadeIm Dunkel nur bekenn ich mich zu dir.In deinen Hörnern aber häuft sich Helle.Die Morgenröte wittern wie ein Tierdein Aug und meines vor der Tränenschwelle.Du überspringst die Stunde, die jetzt schlug.Wir knieen nun und können weinen . . .Von Kummer ist schon übervoll mein Krug –Und deine Tränen fließen auch in meinen . . .Du nennst, ein Finstrer in den Rosenbränden,das Dunkel Drüben und die Helle Hier . . .Bis dir mein Herz verflackert in den Händen.Im Dunkel nur bekenn ich mich zu dir.

Francesca D'Aloja"Spiriti"La nave di Teseohttps://www.lanavediteseo.eu/“C'è stato un tempo in cui ho cominciato a interessarmi alle vite degli altri più che alla mia. Negli ultimi tre anni ho vissuto circondata da presenze, spiriti illuminati e illuminanti che mi hanno accompagnato, fatto riflettere, ispirato. Insieme a loro ho riso, per alcuni ho pianto, e con ciascuno ho percorso un tratto di strada. Il termine spiriti non tragga in inganno, non c'entrano tavolini traballanti o manifestazioni paranormali. Si tratta piuttosto di evocazioni sentimentali. Le persone qui raccontate, privilegiate o meno, fortunate o sventurate, hanno tutte cercato di dare un senso alla propria esistenza. E tutte hanno rivelato un caparbio desiderio di esistere. Ecco, forse è la loro spinta vitale ad avermi conquistata, quella formidabile fiamma che trasforma la vita in un'avventura e che viene alimentata dal più potente dei combustibili: la passione.”Francesca d'Aloja racconta vite che non sono le nostre ma che ugualmente ci appartengono. Da Nikola Tesla, l'uomo nato con l'elettricità nello sguardo, agli occhi magnetici di Jean Seberg, dalla donna che fece perdere la testa a Nietzsche, Rilke e Freud a Chet Baker che suona la tromba davanti casa, fino a uno scrittore geniale nascosto nel cappotto color cammello di un professore di liceo. Sono incontri – talvolta reali, talvolta immaginati, spesso sfiorati – che non sono mai fortuiti, ma seguono le inclinazioni imprevedibili e inevitabili dell'esistenza. E portano a scoperte straordinarie, con nuovi amici e compagni di viaggio “cinici, spietati, scorretti. Ma anche affascinanti, perché profondamente liberi”.IL POSTO DELLE PAROLEAscoltare fa Pensarehttps://ilpostodelleparole.it/

His parents placed him in military school with the desire that he become an officer—a position Rilke was not inclined to hold. With the help of his uncle, who realized that Rilke was a highly gifted child, Rilke left the military academy and entered a German preparatory school. By the time he enrolled in Charles University in Prague in 1895, he knew that he would pursue a literary career: he had already published his first volume of poetry, Leben und Lieder, the previous year. At the turn of 1895-1896, Rilke published his second collection, Larenopfer (Sacrifice to the Lares). A third collection, Traumgekrönt (Dream-Crowned) followed in 1896. That same year, Rilke decided to leave the university for Munich, Germany, and later made his first trip to Italy.In 1897, Rilke went to Russia, a trip that would prove to be a milestone in Rilke's life, and which marked the true beginning of his early serious works. While there the young poet met Tolstoy, whose influence is seen in Das Buch vom lieben Gott und anderes (Stories of God), and Leonid Pasternak, the nine-year-old Boris's father. At Worpswede, where Rilke lived for a time, he met and married Clara Westhoff, who had been a pupil of Rodin. In 1902 he became the friend, and for a time the secretary, of Rodin, and it was during his twelve-year Paris residence that Rilke enjoyed his greatest poetic activity. His first great work, Das Stunden Buch (The Book of Hours), appeared in 1905, followed in 1907 by Neue Gedichte (New Poems) and Die Aufzeichnungen des Malte Laurids Brigge (The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge). Rilke would continue to travel throughout his lifetime; to Italy, Spain and Egypt among many other places, but Paris would serve as the geographic center of his life, where he first began to develop a new style of lyrical poetry, influenced by the visual arts.When World War I broke out, Rilke was obliged to leave France and during the war he lived in Munich. In 1919, he went to Switzerland where he spent the last years of his life. It was here that he wrote his last two works, the Duino Elegies (1923) and the Sonnets to Orpheus (1923). He died of leukemia on December 29, 1926. At the time of his death his work was intensely admired by many leading European artists, but was almost unknown to the general reading public. His reputation has grown steadily since his death, and he has come to be universally regarded as a master of verse.From https://poets.org/poet/rainer-maria-rilke. For more information about Rainer Maria Rilke:Previously on The Quarantine Tapes:Joy Harjo about Rilke, at 0:55: https://quarantine-tapes.simplecast.com/episodes/the-quarantine-tapes-153-joy-harjoRosanne Cash about Rilke, at 22:35: https://quarantine-tapes.simplecast.com/episodes/the-quarantine-tapes-015-rosanne-cashMeredith Monk about Rilke, at 09:00: https://quarantine-tapes.simplecast.com/episodes/the-quarantine-tapes-meredith-monk-054The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge: https://wwnorton.com/books/9780393882087“Rainer Maria Rilke”: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poets/rainer-maria-rilke“Reintroducing Rilke”: https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052748703298004574459033827598594“Can Rilke Change Your Life?”: https://www.newyorker.com/books/under-review/can-rilke-change-your-life

Rainer Maria Rilke's Duino Elegies, written between 1912 and 1922, are often considered to be one of the cornerstones of European literature in the 20th Century. Produced in a time of collapse and change, amidst political turmoil and spiritual flux, the poems grapple with what it means to be human, charting the soul's journey through existential despair and fear and separation (“Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the orders of Angels?”) to moments of revelation and ecstasy (“Praise this world, not the untold world, to the Angel.”) Rilke is a poet concerned with the task of inhabiting the world - despite its transience and the fact of our mortality - and in the presence of everyday objects, buildings, Things (“Dingen”) he finds his way into a kind of being that exalts in our fleetingness. In the Ninth Elegy he arrives at the phrase, “Perhaps we are here in order to say: house, bridge, fountain, gate, pitcher, fruit-tree, window [...]” (In German: “Haus, Brücke, Brunnen, Tor, Krug, Obstbaum, Fenster.”) A century on from the completion of Rilke's landmark cycle of poems, this radio hymn takes up the poet's call to dwell in “the time of the sayable”, with contributions from post-humanist thinker Bayo Akomolafe, archeologist Bettina Bader, German scholar Karen Leeder, and author and storyteller Martin Shaw.

What might the essence of Rilke's Egoic soul reveal to us, if we tried to put it into words, using all our knowledge of the poems transmitted through an Ich, Rilke's Ich (aka Ego), over many years, as well as the letters, and notebooks, and biographies we have of him to guide us? This might also include our ability, now a century after Freud, to apply everything we have learnt in the last 100 years about the mechanism, or the Operating System of the Ego, the Self? The word that I find best describes both the Panther's predicament as well the predicament of Rilke's Ich, is LONGING. It is this painful, and somewhat absurd emotional fixation that this episode mainly focuses on by examining the following three poems: THE PANTHER His vision, from the constantly passing bars, has grown so weary that it cannot hold anything else. It seems to him there are a thousand bars; and behind the bars, no world. As he paces in cramped circles, over and over, the movement of his powerful soft strides is like a ritual dance around a center in which a mighty will stands paralyzed. Only at times, the curtain of the pupils lifts, quietly--. An image enters in, rushes down through the tensed, arrested muscles, plunges into the heart and is gone. -Rainer Maria Rilke (tr. Stephen Mitchell) YOU WHO NEVER ARRIVED You who never arrived in my arms, Beloved, who were lost from the start, I don't even know what songs would please you. I have given up trying to recognize you in the surging wave of the next moment. All the immense images in me—the far-off, deeply-felt landscape, cities, towers, and bridges, and un- suspected turns in the path, and those powerful lands that were once pulsing with the life of the gods— all rise within me to mean you, who forever elude me. You, Beloved, who are all the gardens I have ever gazed at, longing. An open window in a country house—, and you almost stepped out, pensive, to meet me. Streets that I chanced upon,— you had just walked down them and vanished. And sometimes, in a shop, the mirrors were still dizzy with your presence and, startled, gave back my too-sudden image. Who knows? perhaps the same bird echoed through both of us yesterday, separate, in the evening. -Rainer Maria Rilke (tr. Stephen Mitchell) LOVE DOGS One night a man was crying, Allah! Allah! His lips grew sweet with the praising, until a cynic said, "So! I have heard you calling out, but have you ever gotten any response?" The man had no answer to that. He quit praying and fell into a confused sleep. He dreamed he saw Khidr, the guide of souls, in a thick, green foliage. "Why did you stop praising?" "Because I've never heard anything back." "This longing you express is the return message." The grief you cry out from draws you toward union. Your pure sadness that wants help is the secret cup. Listen to the moan of a dog for its master. That whining is the connection. There are love dogs no one knows the names of. Give your life to be one of them. ― Jalal Al-Din Rumi (tr. Coleman Barks) -- Transcript: http://stevewasserman.co.uk/rilkes-panther-the-cage-of-self/

At the end of the 19th Century, art, and the study of art known as aesthetics, became a common point of convergence for two other new disciplines: Psychoanalysis, with its focus on unconscious/indirect experience, and Phenomenology, which in contrast to psychoanalytic psychology, sought to investigate consciousness and direct experience. Psychologists at the time began to see how looking at people's emotional responses to art, and the motivations that drove some to create it, could help explain aspects of human nature that had never been fully grasped before. One of these psycho-spiritual conundrums might be conceptualised by the follow question: What is a Self - which is to say: an “I”, a conscious, as well as self-conscious Ego? Also: what universal or variable factors might lie at the heart of such a phenomenon? A crucial piece of this puzzle, in terms of understanding ourselves and others, arrived in the shape of something that the German philosopher Theodor Lipps called Einfühlung (“feeling into” or empathy). Freud used this notion of empathy in trying to “feel into” the inner world of himself and his patients in ways that had never been attempted before, and so did the young (26 year old) Rainer Maria Rilke, who had studied with Lipps, and was now setting out to apply these ideas in his writing. Rilke would also learn about empathy at the knee of the sculptor August Rodin, who suggested he might like to empathically “regardez les animaux” (look at the animals) at the Jardin Des Plantes in Paris, where they were kept for this purpose. In applying himself to this special kind of looking, beginning with the task of watching a panther and writing about it, Rilke would learn not only something essential about himself, but also about the nature of the Egoic Self in general. In this episode, we get a little bit closer to that understanding. -- Transcript: http://stevewasserman.co.uk/rilkes-panther-the-cage-of-self/

İbrahim Kalın ile “Kendi Gökkubbemiz” kendine has üslubuyla farklı ufuklara yelken açtırmaya kaldığı yerden devam ediyor. Her hafta farklı konulara değinerek izleyicilerine yeni fikir kapıları aralayan İbrahim Kalın bu bölümde "Rilke'nin Müslüman Melekleri" üzerinde duruyor. Kendi Gökkubbemiz'in yeni bölümde başlıca şunlar konuşuldu; Serdar Tuncer: "Gerçi saklandığı yere, o pek yüce olan Girince bir bakışta tanınan Melek Dimdik ve görkemli parıltılar salan: Yalvardı bütün iddialardan vazgeçerek İzin verilsin diye gezgin kalmasına Eskisi gibi, dalgın bir tacir olarak yani; Okumuşluğu yoktu, fazla gelirdi ona da Bilginlere de görmek sözün böylesini. Melekse emredercesine gösteriyordu Levhasına yazılanları yalvarana Gösteriyor ve istiyordu tekrar: Oku Okudu O da: Öyle ki Melek hayrandı. Çoktan okumuş denirdi artık ona Yapabilendi o, kulak veren ve yapandı." Rilke... Çok seviyorsunuz... Ne diyeceğiz bu şiir için? İbrahim Kalın: Rilke'nin Peygamber Efendimize ilk vahyin gelişini anlattığı şiiridir bu. Cebrail'in (a.s) gelip "oku" dediği, Efendimizin de "ben okuma bilmem" diye karşılık verdiği andan sonra ki hali, sahneyi tasvir eden çok güzel bir şiiridir Rilke'nin. Rilke neden böyle bir şiir yazmaya ihtiyaç duydu? Biraz kendi biyografisiyle ilgili çünkü Rilke çok seyahat etmiş birisi. Genç yaşta vefat ediyor, 51 yaşında vefat ediyor Rilke ama ömrünün önemli bir kısmını, kendisi her ne kadar Çek Cumhuriyeti'nde, bugünkü Prag'da doğmuş olmakla beraber Alman tabiki ve bütün o bölgede geziyor. Fransa'da, İsviçre'de, Almanya'da, Avusturya'da seyahatler yapıyor. Ama hayatını değiştiren en önemli seyahatlerinden bi tanesi de Endülüs'e yaptığı seyahat... Devamı videoda...

On the 1st of May 1889, the young (33 year old) psychoanalyst-on-the-make Sigismund Schlomo Freud took on the case of a “a lady of about forty years of age”, a Frau Emmy von N., who we now know to be the Swiss noblewoman Baroness Fanny Louise von Sulzer-Wart. Baroness Fanny had married 29 years previously at the tender age of 23 the 65 year-old Swiss watchmaker and industrialist Heinrich Moser, who died 4 years after the marriage from a heart attack. In the minds of Moser's five children from his previous marriage, the idea got around that Fanny might have toe-tagged their father after having him sire her two new Moser offspring with birthright claims to his vast fortune. This is the first time that Freud decides to give his friend Josef Breuer's technique of “investigation under hypnosis” a try-out as he attempts to help his new patient with her suffering somatizations (resembling very much the symptoms of Fibromyalgia today). Freud starts using techniques which will in time become (after he has ditched the overt hypnosis angle) his own special contribution to human animal therapeutics. What have these initial forays into our so-called "hysterical" human Egos (Freud's word for the Ego was simply "Ich", I) got to do with a poem that Rainer Maria Rilke would write a decade or so later about a panther he'd spent a day watching behind bars in the Jardin des Plantes, in Paris? This first episode (part of a trio) begins exploring this koan, trying to join up some of these dots between one of Freud's first talking cure patients (Emmy/Fanny), with Joseph Mortimer Granville's invention of the medical vibrator (the percuteur) in 1880 and its uses by male doctors on their female patients' genitalia; James Strachey's mistranslations of Freud's Ich into Ego and the effect this would have on psychoanalytic thought and practice, and David Attenborough being chased around the Scottish Highlands by a large, angry grouse called The Caipercaillie. Poems discussed in this episode: THE PANTHER His vision, from the constantly passing bars, has grown so weary that it cannot hold anything else. It seems to him there are a thousand bars; and behind the bars, no world. As he paces in cramped circles, over and over, the movement of his powerful soft strides is like a ritual dance around a center in which a mighty will stands paralyzed. Only at times, the curtain of the pupils lifts, quietly–. An image enters in, rushes down through the tensed, arrested muscles, plunges into the heart and is gone. -Rainer Maria Rilke (English translation by Stephen Mitchell) -- FIRST FOOTNOTE ON ZOOMORPHISM It seems we have said too little about the heart, per se, how it sits in its chambered nub of grease and echo listening for movement in the farthest reed beds — any feathered thing will do, love being interspecific, here, more often than we imagine. If anything, I'd liken us to certain warblers, less appealing in the wild than how we'd look in coloured lithographs, yet now and then, I'm on the point of hearing bitterns at the far edge of the lake, that cry across the marshes like the doom you only get in books, where people die so readily for love, each heart becomes a species in itself, the sound it makes distinctive, one more descant in the dark, before it disappears into the marshes. -John Burnside -- Transcript: http://stevewasserman.co.uk/rilkes-panther-the-cage-of-self/

Hello to you, my friends and colleagues listening all over Canada while celebrating your Happy ThankFullGiving Day!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Motivate Your Monday and your host, Diane Wyzga.I was told that even before I was born I had been given my very own guardian angel. My guardian angel's job is to guide, protect, and direct me. To help my guardian angel are a multitude of even more angels.Maybe you believe in angels and maybe you don't. But I can tell you from personal experience (and a little help from Rilke) that guardian angels usually don't respond to a snap of the fingers or a shout for help. No. It's more like a dance.  “The Angel is not moved by your tears; but by your willingness to begin anew. If the Angel decides to come it will be because you have convinced her, not by tears, but by your humble resolve to be always beginning; to be a beginner.” [Rainer Maria Rilke, translated by Stephen Mitchell]Question: How might you invite your angel to be dancing with you this week? You're invited: “Come for the stories - stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you'll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!

What does it mean to be real. REALLY real? To be telling each other alive about each other alive etc. I look to Mary Oliver's Ten Commandments for living the good life, as well as her very Enneagram Nine-ish poem I Want To Write Something So Simply. Rilke's Book of Hours also gets a look-in, as does WS Graham's Language Koan, Becker's Denial of Death, and Lizzo (avec Sasha). Part of this must surely involve a very real "coming into Presence", which R.S. Thomas calls in The Bright Field, “that pearl of great price”? And what better way to do that than through the Incomparable Cosmic Verve of Cheryl Lynn circa 1978. This episode of Fourdom is sponsored by Playing The Infinite Game, a podcast which looks at how we get the most out of our personality types (aka our Ego's Operating System) without coming unstuck in each type's glitches, snags, and shortcomings.

I prefer that you listen deeply so you might ask yourself: What is the elemental water of my life?     The Swan   "This clumsy living that moves lumbering   as if in ropes through what is not done,   reminds us of the awkward way the swan walks.    And to die, which is the letting go   of the ground we stand on and cling to every day,   is like the swan, when he nervously lets himself down   into the water, which receives him gaily   and which flows under   and after him, wave after wave,   while the swan, unmoving and marvelously calm,   is pleased to be carried, each moment more fully grown,   more like a king, further and further on.'  [~ Rainer Maria Rilke - translated by Robert Bly]Question: What is the elemental water of your life you are willing to lower yourself into?You're invited: “Come for the stories - stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you'll subscribe, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time!

In this episode, Henry and Aimee talk about that third lesson of loving well: Be more permeable. What does that mean? Being more permeable means to soften our defenses a bit, to let emotions in, and to also let them out again. To be really alive, we have to be open and let all of life flow in and through us. Listen in to gather insight on how to do that and how you're completely equipped for it. Key Takeaways (see full transcript below): Organisms, like humans, cannot wall themselves off and still thrive... or even survive. Our emotional lives are the same. We cannot remain healthy while ignoring or stuffing emotions down.   When we're closed off, we may think we're keeping out just the bad "stuff." But, this shutting down and closing off blocks the good stuff too. Vulnerability and oversharing are different!  We can infuse life-giving qualities and intentions (the 12 elements of joy!) as we attend to the painful and the joyful. This state of intentional-attention are particularly good at helping us navigate tough times more smoothly and getting out of ruts more quickly. As Rilke stated: Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.  You are resilient and interconnected. During beautiful times and times of terror. Just keep going.     Links Mentioned: Joy Lab Program Joy Lab Podcast episode #6 (5 Lessons of Loving Well) Joy Lab Podcast episode #21 (Love Yourself First)  Joy Lab Podcast episode #22 (See the Innocence in Others) Intentional Systemic Mindfulness About Ranier Maria Rilke     Full Transcript: Learning to Love Well: Be Permeable Welcome to Joy Lab!: [00:00:00] Welcome to the joy lab podcast, where we help you uncover and foster your most joyful self. Your hosts, Dr. Henry Emmons and Dr. Aimee Prasek, bring you the ideal mix of soulful and scientifically sound tools to spark your joy, even when it feels dark. When you're ready to experiment with more joy, combine this podcast with the full Joy Lab program over at JoyLab.coach. Henry: Hello, I'm Henry Emmons Aimee: I'm Aimee Prasek. So welcome to joy lab, where we infuse science with soul to help you uncover joy. To do that, we focus on our elements of joy. Those are the positive inner states and emotions that become the building blocks for a joyful life. In this episode, we're talking about that third lesson of loving well, which we're now calling "be more permeable." So in episode number six, we introduced these [00:01:00] five lessons quickly and used the word vulnerable. Vulnerability is really essentially when we open ourselves up to risk, uncertainty, emotional exposure. And in this episode, we actually really like the somewhat similar concept of permeability. To me, it just sort of feels more empowering and dynamic, maybe simply because vulnerability is a bit of a buzzword. I'm not trying to dismiss it. So Henry, maybe you can dig into that more. Can you describe permeability for us and how it might show up in our lives? Henry: Sure. So, you know, you don't often hear people described as permeable, but I like it because it reminds me that we are part of the natural world. In nature, you don't see healthy organisms wall themselves off from their surroundings. At least not for very long. There [00:02:00] is this constant interplay with everything around it, a give and take that is what really makes life possible. And I think our emotional lives are not that different. We are not designed to be impenetrable fortresses, you know, to shut ourselves down so that we just can't get hurt. Now we do that, we all do that from time to time. We do it unconsciously. You know, if we feel scared or hurt or betrayed, it is just a completely natural reaction. And I think it's okay to shut down when you need to, but just not for too long. If we stay closed off, if we try to make ourselves strong or try to protect ourselves, it ends up just hurting us more. Because, when you're [00:03:00] closed off, you just can't let in all the good stuff that's coming your way either. So, I think being permeable means to soften up our defenses a little bit, to let emotions in, and also importantly, to let them out again. So to be really alive, we have to be open and let all of life flow in and through us. Aimee: Yeah, I really love thinking about permeability because of that flow that you're describing, Henry. You know, Letting it in and letting it out. It also makes me think of a bit of an obstacle that can snag us here and that obstacle is oversharing. I think this is super helpful for those of us who have maybe a high threshold for sharing information uh, about ourselves. Or would that be a low threshold? You know what I mean? We're open to sharing it. Just thinking about that... but I'm totally [00:04:00] in that camp. Um, you know, if you ask me about something personal, I'll give you the answer generally, without any hesitation, I will give you the information, even if you don't ask, probably. And at times I think that can really feel like vulnerability. And it's why we can lean into oversharing sometimes because we're thinking that, "Hey, I'm practicing vulnerability!" I think Dr. Brene Brown actually gets into this noting that just dumping information on folks is not the same as vulnerability. And that's because we can actually be completely emotionally impenetrable, walling ourselves off, like you said, Henry, while also oversharing. Which kind of seems wild, um, example: I might TMI you all day long and at the same time, have a terrible time letting you know that I can't handle something, and need some help. Or, I'll tell you all sorts of stories about past losses or struggles, but I'm [00:05:00] not going to let you know that I'm sad now and could use some support. So, I think that's where this concept of, permeability helps. Or at least for me, it suggests sort of this more even ground. Maybe I just get caught up in the words here. But for me, with vulnerability, it feels like I'm only opening up to the idea that someone is going to hurt me. You know, that revealing my true self, my fears, my dreams, that if I do that, I open myself up to the firing squad. And that's true. People can be mean when you put yourself out there. But I guess I want to create the space where I'm not just sort of opening myself up to pain. Like doomsday prepping for my true self to be revealed and then assaulted. But instead opening myself up to whatever, good and bad, and that I can release whatever comes at me. I can let it move through, you know, there's room for good and bad. [00:06:00] There's a place for back and forth. And that type of permeability seems more empowering for me, I think. If I'm making any sense here. Henry: Yeah, I think you're making ton of sense, you know, pain and joy. They're all part of life and we are meant to let them in. But as you said, there really needs to be a back and forth. About 20 years ago, I went through a really rough, personal stretch. It lasted at least three years, maybe, maybe longer. Um, I lost my father first and then just a few months later, my birth father died, and then my birth mother, and then my sister. This all happened over this three year period. Most of their deaths were really complicated, and so were my emotions. And I just [00:07:00] sank into this melancholy that I could not shake. And in retrospect, I'm not sure I actually wanted to shake it. There was something about having that depth of feeling, the rawness of those emotions that I don't think I really wanted to let go of. So I held onto them for a few years until they just gradually ebbed away. Now, I know that grief is different for everyone, and there is no set proper amount of time for moving through it. And I don't judge myself for taking so long. But, from the vantage point that I have now, I realized that at that time in my life, I just didn't know how [00:08:00] to do it any differently. I'd had no idea being permeable, staying open means that you not only let things in, but you also let them out, you know. It's, it's like a, if you think about a pond of water, it gets stagnant in there if there's not enough fresh water flowing in. And it also gets stagnant if there isn't enough water flowing out. So it's this dynamic system. And so are we. Aimee: I'm thinking like all those losses, Henry sometimes, you know, when it rains, it pours, I'm thinking about saying. And at the same time I'm thinking about that saying, um, you know time just heals all wounds. But man, if it's just pouring in and you're just waiting for time to heal it, you can sit in that space a long time. You can get very stagnant, like you're saying. Sort of on this note here, there's this self-regulation model I really like, called intentional systemic mindfulness. [00:09:00] Just as an aside, I'm realizing this is why it's sometimes hard for me to make friends because I start off sentences like that. "There's a self-regulation model that I really like." Anyway, That's me. That's okay. Um, anyway, this model sort of hits on what you're saying, and actually this model, along with some other theories, is actually baked into our Joy Lab program, which is why Joy Lab works so well. But, intentional systemic mindfulness was really influenced by systems theory. So, really diving into that open system you're talking about and the idea that everything impacts everything else, essentially. And so every sort of subsystem, like a dynamic complex human, must be studied at its whole, you know, rather than reducing it to all these little isolated parts. On top of that, there's all these feedback loops within the system with the purpose of helping the system, [00:10:00] helping us maintain order, or self-regulation, or balance, harmony. So, the idea here is that, like you said, Henry, we are not a closed system. We might think we can close ourselves off, but it's impossible. Our feedback loops are still operating. Stuffed down emotions are still circling around and impacting our balance and harmony. And so with intentional systemic mindfulness, what we do here at Joy Lab, we can set some intentions within those feedback loops. We can feed into them, to support that self-regulation process. It's what starts that upward spiral too, that we talk about here. So specifically we can use mindful attention and qualities of mindfulness, is what the authors of this model, note um, as intentions to move things through our system. To maybe come out of that melancholy when we're ready,[00:11:00] or to sort of ignite that process. To move them in and out, those emotions. These qualities of mindfulness, in my opinion anyway, are really similar to what we work with here at Joy Lab, these 12 elements of joy. So, I'll take love as an example, you know, we can use this element of love, this intention of deep care for ourselves and others as a quality of attention; how we attend to a friend, how we attend to what we're feeling inside. So you can see then how this type of attention impacts the feedback loops. So I attend with love. Even if you come at me with an insult, then it just doesn't sting so bad. So I don't come back at you with venom or a violent action. It moves through my system in a totally different way than if I was attending to you with distrust or hate. So, I guess my point here with this model is that it reinforces that [00:12:00] permeability is absolutely our natural state, within our own individual system and between all the other humans, all the other systems around us, things have to move within us and through us. But obviously, that's way harder with emotions and experiences that aren't so "positive" and the point of attending with these intentions, these qualities of mindfulness, these elements of joy, it's not to dismiss what's true for us, or the reality of the situation. It's just like adding an ingredient, you know, it gives us back maybe some control here. So, Henry let's end by maybe talking about that, how can we hold permeability for all of it? You know, maybe even more so that openness from the start, how can we be open to, be permeable with both the joyful and the sad? Henry: So I am going to turn for this to the [00:13:00] great poet, Rilke. Aimee: A good idea. Henry: Yeah, it is. It is a good idea. In one of his poems, Rilke was clearly giving us advice for how to live well. And here's part, just a small part of what he wrote: "Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final." Now I was just really struck when I first read that. In these three short lines, he captures so much of what it means to be human. Aimee: Yeah. Henry: We are surrounded by this incredible beauty. There is so much goodness and love in the world and that's still true. I think. It's just all [00:14:00] around us. But let's be honest, there is also a lot that is fearful or maddening or just plain sad. His advice is so direct. So simple. Let everything happen to you. I just love that. He's saying don't resist. Don't push away the stuff that makes you feel bad. And don't hold too tightly to the stuff that makes you feel good. Just allow it all to be there. Let it all in. Be permeable. And then he says, just keep going. That is such a good description of resilience. Isn't it? Just, no matter what happens, just keep going. Stand up. [00:15:00] Place one foot in front of the other, and keep going. We do not have to be stopped by our emotions. Why not? He tells us, because no feeling is final. Feelings come and they go. They are never permanent. Although I know we sometimes think that they are. I have come to think of the painful emotions, the terror as Rilke puts it, like compost, they're not garbage that we throw into a landfill somewhere and just let's sit there, outta sight outta mind. Aimee: Hmm. Henry: They just keep piling up that way and we'll eventually have to deal with them. But if we can let them in and turn them over once in a while, like you do your compost, maybe add a little [00:16:00] moisture if you need it. So it can decompose. Well, eventually it will turn into something really rich, something life-giving. So, you know, it took me, uh, quite a long time to compost my series of losses, but I did eventually. That's actually, when I really started to write. I started it as a way to help me process all of that. And to me, this is interesting, that a lot of my journal entries during that time eventually found their way into my books and into what I think of as the richest and best part of my books. Aimee: I love the compost metaphor. Now I'm imagining, with intentional systemic mindfulness. And gardening all we've discussed that we're adding worms of joy, worms of love, compassion, to get in there and help [00:17:00] turn that soil over. I don't know if that helps anybody. But anyway, those worms can be your elements of joy. But also I like to think that we all write our books, the stories of our lives. Each story we write then opens up the next chapter as well. So maybe that's a good place to close here, to close this chapter, this lesson of love of being more permeable, before we talk about our fourth lesson on loving well in the next episode. So Henry, do you have maybe the last paragraph for this chapter? Something to send us off with? Henry: Sure. Let's just try to remember this, that joy is there in whatever is happening. If we can simply allow it to be there. No judgment, no resistance, [00:18:00] no grasping. Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.

Michael Bungay Stanier has written books that have sold about a million copies all told, including The Coaching Habit. He founded a training and development company, Box of Crayons, that has taught coaching skills to hundreds of thousands of people around the world. Listen in to see why Michael has been named the #1 Thought Leader in Coaching; and why his work has resonated with thousands…   https://bit.ly/TLP-320   Key Takeaways [2:00] Jan and Jim met Michael Bungay Stanier through Bobby Herrera, the author of The Gift of Struggle. Michael is the author of the most successful book on coaching of this century, The Coaching Habit. Michael's latest book is How to Begin. [3:06] Little-known facts about Michael: he was banned from his high school graduation for a balloon prank, he was sued by one of his law school professors for defamation, and his first professional writing was The Male Delivery, a romance short story.[6:07] Michael recently wrote on LinkedIn about his mother's 50-year-old garden. It has a series of microclimates: a vegetable garden, a fern garden, a wisteria garden, and a Wollemi pine. Each area is looked after differently. He compares caring for a garden to caring for the microcultures in an organization's culture. [6:18] As a leader you see that things need to change. You're constantly looking to evolve and grow your organization or strategy. The way you think about engaging all the other people is how change happens in an organization. [8:36] In Australia, some trees need to be burned before they will germinate. Sometimes you need to burn some stuff down to allow the culture to germinate, refresh, and regrow. [10:01] Jan quotes a military mantra, “Selection's an ongoing process. Just because you got to come here and be in this organization doesn't mean you get to stay.” Michael notes that our natural wiring is to add. One of the most powerful things to do to drive change is to remove. Michael tells of a study involving adding or removing Lego blocks to make the desired shape. Most people added blocks. [11:05] Most people, when thinking of change in an organization, ask what they need to add. Instead, they would get better changes by asking what 20% of what is happening, what practices, structures, systems, culture,  or people, they need to remove! Michael learned of the study by reading Subtract: The Untapped Science of Less, by Leidy Klotz. [12:15] We are also wired to give advice, even when it's better to ask a question. Michael counsels leaders to stay curious a little bit longer and move to action and advice-giving a little bit more slowly. Michael explains where we go wrong with giving advice. [14:29] One resistance to having coaching be part of your culture is asking who has time for it. Michael says if you can't coach somebody in 10 minutes or less, you do not have time to coach them. Being curious does not take a vast amount of time. Michael defines coaching as being curious just a little bit longer. Being curious allows you to figure out what the real challenge is. [15:28] In most organizations, people are working very hard to solve not the real challenge, but the first challenge. Because we get seduced into thinking that the first challenge is the thing we need to solve. If you build a reputation as the person who always seems to figure out what the real challenge is, you build a reputation as a strategic player. [16:00] Strategy is knowing what the real thing is and being bold enough to go and try to fix that. Organizations are filled with people who are good at coming up with fast, not very good ideas. If you're just one of them, you're not as valuable to your organization. If you're always the person who asks, “What's the real challenge we're trying to solve here?” you become invaluable. Get the diagnosis right. [16:33] Michael just had a free webinar that asked “What's the one question that unlocks everything?” The question is, “If I'm going to say ‘yes' to this, what must I say ‘no' to?” He quotes Michael Porter, who said, “Strategy is choice. It's having the courage to make the choice.” Most of us are afraid of making the choice. [17:21] There are three levels of things you have to say “no” to 1.) Tasks. What are the tasks I need to stop doing? 2.) People. To whom do I need to say no? Whom do I need to disappoint? 3.) The old version of who you are, so you can say yes to the new version of who you are. [19:38] The book, How to Begin, asks if you understand the prizes and punishments of staying committed to the status quo. People often don't understand how much they get from the way things are right now, even though they're overwhelmed. You need to know what you value and hold dear. There is a tension between the work that has impact and work that has meaning. [21:28] You have to ask what has to be done in this organization for this thing to be a success. What is the work you do that unlocks the best of who you are and has the maximal impact within your organization? [23:15] What does it mean to set a worthy goal? How do you set the goals that matter to you? How do you set a goal that claims ambition for yourself and the world? Michael suggests there are three key elements 1.) Is it thrilling? Does it light you up? 2.) Is it important? 3.) Have you picked a worthy goal that is daunting to you? Will it take you to the edge of your sense of self? [25:14] If you have a goal that is thrilling, important, but not daunting, you have plateaued; you are no longer learning. Michael is now an old dog but he still wants to learn new tricks! Neuroplasticity is how you keep your brain alive and push yourself to the edge. [26:44] Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound (SMART) goals are goals of things for management to track. Leadership goals are harder to measure and track. [30:12] When Michael's father was dying, Michael shared with his father a book chapter he had just written about him, referring to Rilke's poem “The Man Watching,” about Jacob wrestling with the angel. Michael saw his father as Jacob, a very good man wrestling something greater than himself and becoming the best of who he was. [33:37] Michael is writing a book and he is finding a lot of resistance in the writing. He feels he is losing a wrestle with an angel and feels the angel's thumbs pushing him down. He asks himself what is his worthy goal. Right now, it's to be with his mother in Australia, to help her with her grief and mourning, and to let go of his need to write his book or anything else. [36:05] Humility and confidence go hand-in-hand, as Michael explains. [37:48] Coaches must consider for whose sake they are talking. Is it helping the client or the coach? Is it for the coach to figure something out or is it for the client to figure something out? Is the coach's talking the best way to serve the client or is it giving the coach status, authority, gravitas, and added value? [39:09] When should coaches talk? Michael says the more he's been around, the more he says the best thing to do is allow the person to figure their stuff out so that they're creating new neural pathways and gaining competence, confidence, self-sufficiency, and autonomy. That's the better way to coach. [40:00] Are you asking questions in service of the client or in service of the problem? Michael says to test it out. Ask the person you are talking to, “Does this feel helpful? What feels useful here in all of this, if anything?” The client will know the answers to those questions better than you will. Figure it out between the two of you. Coaching is a relationship. Stop trying to figure it out all in your head. [42:41] Michael's closing thoughts: “If you can stay curious and you can stay kind and you can be generous, that just takes you a long way down the path of being a good human being. Curiosity, kindness, and generosity are a really powerful triumvirate.” [48:19] Closing quote: “Coaching's not a job, it's a privilege.” — Lee Corso.   Quotable Quotes “Any dominant culture actually has subcultures and microclimates. And you're not just trying to build a culture, you're [asking], ‘How do I build these microclimates that are all contributors, culture-adds, to the overall culture of my organization?'” “If you're a leader, one of the mantras you have is ‘Stuff needs to change around here.' You're constantly looking to evolve and grow your organization or your strategy in some way. … The way you think about engaging all the other people is how change happens in an organization.” “I'm trying to get people in organizations … to stay curious a little bit longer and rush to action and advice-giving a little bit more slowly because most of us are advice-giving maniacs.” “There is a place for advice-giving. There is absolutely a place for advice-giving! It's an act of civilization to trade information. What kills us is when we have leaping to advice as our default response.” “When you work in an organization, you've got a tension always between work that has impact and the work that has meaning. If you can be really clear on the stuff that matters to you, … then you also have to ask, ‘What needs to be done in this organization for this to be a success?'” “If you're not working on the right thing, it doesn't matter if your goal is specific, measurable, attainable, timely, or whatever else. It's like you're not working on the thing that's going to have the most impact and bring out the best of who you are.” “With a worthy goal, you can do work on one or two worthy goals, not more than that.” “I'm trying to write a book at the moment, and I wrote my words today, but, man, I am finding resistance to this book; the dark force in this book is stronger than usual! … I know how to write a book, but this book, I went, ‘What?! This is really hard!'” “I want people to say, ‘Look, I know where I'm good, and I also know where I'm not good and I don't need to be grandiose about either of those things. That's what I'm working with. That's the reality that I'm playing with.' That, to me, has that kind of confidence and humility.” “The longer I've been around, the more I see that my answers aren't as good as I think they are. And the more I've been around, the more I say the best thing to do is allow that person to figure their stuff out so that they're creating new neural pathways.”   Resources Mentioned Theleadershippodcast.com Sponsored by: Darley.com Rafti Advisors.

The Importance of Rites of Passage

When I worked for Outward Bound, one of the most rewarding aspects was how it acted as a rite of passage for many of our students. You may have heard of rites of passage from other cultures (Native American vision quests, once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimages in Buddhist, Hindu or Muslin traditions, for example). They're ceremonies or practices that mark an individual's progression from one stage of life to another.  There are generally three phases in a rite of passage:Separation: the individual changes from their current status and prepares to enter a new stage.Liminality: the person is often temporarily removed from their normal surroundings and community to experience tasks or rituals that prepare them for the next stage of life.Incorporation: The person return and is welcomed back into their community with their newly-attained status and responsibilities. It's important to note that a rite of passage in and of itself doesn't make the transformation happen. It doesn't mean you have a rite of passage then, “Yay, you did it, now go forth!” True inner growth and taking on new levels of responsibility are an essential part of rites of passage – and what they're designed to mark, not create. While it's well-researched that there is a lack of meaningful rites of passage in modern industrialized societies for life stages like transition into adulthood, the absence of a ritual to mark those stages still isn't the most significant problem in terms of obstacles to Soul development. Really the rites of passage are meant to confirm a life transition that has already been reached, often through a long steady process of doing this work. So what's more significant is what happens between the life stages than the rites of passage themselves. The primary work of maturing takes place gradually and on a daily basis as we apply ourselves to the developmental tasks of our current life stage.  Children and adolescents need help with these tasks — and who is supposed to help them? Grown-ass, mature adults. Not adults working out their childhood baggage with their own children or, say, having tantrums while they're the President of the United States of America. For example;) So yes, help from mature adults. And that's where I think we're failing right now. So we need to let go of the idea that the transition from childhood to adulthood takes place in one fell swoop. Between these two life stages is the adventure of adolescence. And it's a real adventure. And we miss out on utilizing it as such. Getting older in and of itself doesn't lead to emotional adulthood or psychological maturity. If you asked most people what adulthood means, they'll say things like: when we fulfill certain responsibilities like establishing a career or steady job, moving out of the home, raising a family… But is this…meaningful? In the sense of what being an adult really means when we look at what our society needs? And what kind of responsibility is that?  As Bill Plotkin says, an adult is someone who understands why they are here on Earth, why they were born, and are offering their unique contribution to the broader sense of the world - not just to humans, but to the planet and all its beings. That kind of responsibility that comes with that kind of Soul development. But don't be discouraged - while it's rare - for most in the modern industrialized world, at least -  to reach true adulthood in their teen years, or even twenties, it's totally possible to do so in midlife. In his book, Nature and the Human Soul, Bill Plotkin states there are two really distinct stages of adolescence - and remember, think of this not just as age, but psychological development - and a major life passage between them.  The adventure starts with puberty, and I think we can all agree the change our body goes through, the hormones, the social shifts that happen around puberty, embodying our sexuality… is a wild ride. This continues through the years of early adolescence then transits through the passage Bill calls Confirmation and then goes into late adolescence, which he calls the “Wanderer in the Cocoon.” In the first half of adolescence, the task is to create a personality — a way of belonging to the human community — one that's ideally authentic and socially “acceptable.”  This is hard AF, especially if you're a rebellious one like I am (and like many of you are) and if you're being asked to gain acceptance into a society that is toxic.  This is obviously easier said than done, especially in toxic cultures that are extremely foused on the individual and that are materialistic. However, doing this is essential because it lays the foundation for the rest of our Soul development. So authenticity - and ziji - means to know who you really are — to know where you stand, what you value, what you desire, what you tolerate and what you don't — and to be able and willing to act accordingly, most of the time, despite the social risks. This takes a minute.The second half of the task in this stage: attaining social acceptability. This is where we can get screwed in the head about all this because to be a healthy adolescent, we need to belong to a healthy community. But when we are part of a toxic community that doesn't honor the process of the human soul, if we are going to “fit in” then we are at high risk of ending up compromising a lot of our Soul qualities. So if - and when - we connect with an authentic personality that is “acceptable” enough, then our focus shifts from our peer group to the bigger mysteries of exploring our psyche and our place in nature and the world. This shift is the passage of Confirmation.  This is when a rite of passage can be really powerful - it publicly confirms the fact that you've succeeded at creating a social presence that works … well enough for your human community.  And it then carries you into late adolescence (the Cocoon), which is the stage when we begin to asking the big, existential and spiritual questions of life:  What do I think differentiates survival and living? A social scene and true community? Academic achievement and deep learning? A “job” and Soul Purpose? Then - after many years of, as Rilke says, “living these questions,” after many expeditions of sorts, exploring our psyche and how we relate to nature, we discover our truth. As David Whyte says, “the truth at the center of the image you were born with.” In many traditional cultures and spiritual paths, a glimpse like this is called a soul purpose or calling, a vision, a soul purpose or calling, or the intuition of our destiny — which usually doesn't show up in more traditional cultural ways, like a job or social role like parenthood, but in a more mysterious way, unique to us. Then, when you commit to manifesting this vision in a kind of delivery system to the world for the benefit of all beings - and I also believe the planet - then and only then do you pass into Soul Initiation (with or without a rite or passage) and into true adulthood. So let's take a moment to reflect on where we are at with this ourselves - and not to shame ourselves, but to be curious so we can open up to what's possible. The world today needs authentically mature mentors to help others in this process. And tht doesn't mean you need to go get another damn training, so stop googling that right now. What is means is to engage in your own process and go through this yourself so you can say yes, it's scary, and often challening, and I've been there. You'll be OK. This is a big part of how I believe we can heal our society and the planet.  In this Episode you will learn:// The 3 phases in a rite of passage // The limitations of rites of passage// The difference between externally- and internally-based rites of passage// How to overcome society's obstacles to Soul growth// The 2 phases before Soul initiation// How to step into true emotional and psychological adulthood// Why we need you to be a mentor who has done the work// Three ways to begin this journey and arrive at Soul Initiation Resources:// Episode 105: Soul vs Spirit // Episode 71: How to Find Your Purpose // If you want to finally get clear about your unique Soul purpose and how to create a life that supports it during this one precious life we have, apply for the Adventure Mastermind.
