This far-ranging dialogue is full of stories that will inspire and delight. Levoy speaks about a sense of wonder as being the active ingredient in a passionate life, and how even suffering and restlessness can be explored with curiosity. He tells us that wonder can offer us the adaptive benefit of free cognitive upgrades. You’ll be encouraged by his advice to approach the obstacles and unknowns in our lives with a sense of adventure. Even small movements will propel us toward a more passionate life. “The application of small amounts of energy with some consistency over time is what makes some of the big changes in our lives happen,” says Levoy. He reminds us that we are “nature deprived” and are not meant to be sitting in chairs in front of computers day and night. He encourages us to get out of our heads and more into our bodies. Included in this dialogue are his thoughts on intimate relationships and the need for a healthy distance between two people, telling us that a “spark requires a gap.” Levoy also discusses the unconscious tactic of blocking experiences by saying “no” or by making no decisions at all. Saying “yes” more often, he believes, can have the effect of bringing us back to our sense of aliveness and passion.
