Understanding Alienation | Ep. 22

And what it may mean to each of us.

For years I struggled with feeling like I didn’t belong on this planet. I felt like an outsider that was here for all the wrong reasons. I often wondered what punishment this might be.

Over time I realized the problem wasn’t with the planet but with being isolated from my true self.

Alienation is something many of us feel today. Our society continues to increase these feelings through the plastic standards we impose on each other. It doesn't have to be this way.

What’s Happening in Today’s Episode

I’m hopeful this episode will help illuminate these feelings and ways we can work to heal. It’s an easy trap to think the world is the problem, but this perspective can stop us from growing and finding fulfillment.

When we reconnect with our authentic selves, we can help alleviate these feelings of isolation and alienation.

A quick highlight of the main topics discussed:

  • What is alienation?

  • Is it in the world or within ourselves?

  • Spiritual tales

  • Healing within

  • Healing the world

By understanding the dynamics of alienation, we can learn to deepen our connection within ourselves and relieve these feelings. It’s a process and takes time, but it is possible.

We can find enjoyment and pleasure in the world by reconnecting within and finding our path forward. We don’t have to feel like aliens. We can also shift that perspective to enable our engagement with life instead of turning away.

The goal is to find things that resonate to be used in your life today, so studying the various concepts of self-mastery will hopefully give you the tools needed to tap into your highest potential.
