In her TED Talk "3 Practices for Wisdom and Wholeness," Krista Tippett focuses on:
- Recognizing the Generative Narrative: Tippett urges us to acknowledge the catastrophic and abundant reality of progress and evolution.
- Living the Questions: Drawing inspiration from Rainer Maria Rilke, Tippett encourages embracing uncertainty and living with open, meaningful questions.
- Embracing Calling and Wholeness: Finally, she speaks of a calling towards wholeness, suggesting that our generation's task is to foster complete individuals and societies.
Her last concept resonates with the holistic approach of philosophers like Aristotle, who viewed the goal of human life as achieving a state of 'eudaimonia' or flourishing through the integration of all aspects of self. I am worried that our strong sense of self is tied more with our vocation alone but ignores everything else in our lives. Watch the talk, you won't be disappointed.
