For millennia, humans have pondered their place in the grand cosmic order of things. If we had the opportunity to speak to our younger self, what would we say? What wisdom could we give to that younger self about the meaning and purpose of life? What does our experience tell us about why we are here and who we are? This conversation explores these questions and why they may be important to our lives. Jacob Needleman says there are two parts of ourselves. One part is connected to our environment, earning a living, having a family, and creating things. There is also another part of ourselves. It is “a part of human nature that is open, connected to something higher. It’s a separate part of our self which is connected to the universe.” He also says that science alone cannot deliver us from the challenges of modernity. The “sound” of truth is not recognizable by the intellect; it can only be heard in the heart through deep listening.
