Thrive Perspectives: Worldview - Pain and the Sacred
Over the coming series of episodes of Perspectives we're going to continue to explore the meaning of our worldview. A worldview is the set of beliefs about fundamental aspects of reality that ground and influence all our perceptions, thinking, knowing, and doing. Your worldview can also be referred to as your philosophy, philosophy of life, mindset, outlook on life, formula for life, ideology and faith. There are a number of elements that make up each of our worldviews - our beliefs about certain aspects of reality: • epistemology: beliefs about the nature and sources of knowledge; • metaphysics: beliefs about the ultimate nature of reality; • cosmology: beliefs about the origins and nature of the universe, life, and especially humankind; • teleology: beliefs about the meaning and purpose of the universe, its inanimate elements, and its inhabitants; • theology: beliefs about the existence and nature of God; • anthropology: beliefs about the nature and purpose of humankind in general and, ourselves in particular; • axiology: beliefs about the nature of value, what is good and bad, what is right and wrong. In this 3rd episode, Matt, Conal and Stuart, dig deeper into the dual axis worldview, specifically around Pain and then land with some very practical application for us to start to re-orient our lives as we elevate our thinking into the ‘sacred’.
