Enjoy this empowering conversation and the fourth with Charles Eisenstein in this podcast series. I think many of you know already how much I appreciate Charles's insights and perspectives on reality. His worldview and ways in which we can midwife the more beautiful world into existence have for over a decade now, been anchors to keep me aligned to my own contribution and how to trust in the process. It is indeed a conscious choice that I have to regulary review. Time stamp: 0:00 - 8:00; They thought they were free. Speaking up during the pandemic.

Crisis gives us an opportunity to choose something else. 29:00 - 33:00; We can see where we are headed. Matrix cyborg. If our horror was going to stop us, it would have already. We have to choose something else. Initiation. Facing death. 33:00 - 37:00; What is bottom for our civilisation? Devote ourselves to life and beauty. Investing in my future makes less and less sense.
