The Goal in Life . . . Soul in the Game . . . To Create Yourself a Soul

Tom Sylvester (LinkedIn, @tsylvest, Blog) recently tweeted, referencing Nassim Nicholas Taleb‘s “Soul in the Game” (“Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder”):


To @SAlhir, someone with more soul than I have ever experienced –  Do you have ‘soul in the game’?

To which I replied:


.@tsylvest Deepest gratitude, my friend. Life is so very short, and without soul, it is that much more less meaningful.

Very grateful to Tom for his sentiments!

In reading Tom’s tweet, I was quickly reminded of Alejandro Jodorowsky . . .

“What is the goal in life? It’s to create yourself a soul.”

. . . and Viktor Frankl . . .

“What is to give light must endure burning.”

So many people simply forget their goal in life (in creating a soul) and no longer give light (and must endure burning).

I have been very fortunate to have may encounters with death (death-rebirth experiences) over the years so as to realize — To create yourself a soul, one must have soul in the game (and from this we experience such freedom) — and I am deeply grateful to those (like Tom) how have honored our shared experience in that creation (of a soul and our individual souls)!
