You Must Come APART to Come ALIVE | Jason Silva: Shots of Awe

Coming alive continuously is a practice of revivification: an ongoing reclaiming of ourselves away from the pull of people-pleasing and conformity--the unending need to please others at the expense of our own needs, longings, and desires. It’s not easy to reclaim yourself, stand up for yourself, resurrect yourself, or be assertive. But, as David Foster Wallace wrote, “the alternative is unconsciousness, the default setting, the rat race, the constant, gnawing sense of having had, and lost, some infinite thing.” You must come apart to come alive. Let go of the things that no longer serve you, and reinvent yourself again and again.
