Michael Phillip: Truth, Meaning & Purpose

By David Newell

This week’s episode I’m delighted to be sharing a conversation with the wonderful Michael Phillip, host of the popular podcast Third Eye Drops. A writer, thinker, speaker, philosopher and curator of mind-bending conversations, Michael is a true polymath of consciousness with an incredible way with words. In this week's conversation I picked his brain on two articles he wrote this year (both can be found on Medium) that explore how to create meaning in your life and how to navigate the journey of individuation. We speak about: - What the trouble is with finding truth and meaning in your life - How myth, stories and archetypes can create deep maps of meaning - The challenge of exploring the individual whilst staying collective in focus - What popular kinds of thinking lead you astray and why - The balancing point of service and individual achievement - The truth of finding lasting happiness In it we went right across the gambit of psychology, philosophy, theology, initiation, gene keys, psychedelics, and mythology, with the conversation closing on a killer quote from Joseph Campbell. Enjoy!
