Video Mastin Kipp: Why Connection = Purpose “Human beings tend to focus on survival, and yet we tend to forget that one of the things… By Karina Mackenzie “Human beings tend to focus on survival, and yet we tend to forget that one of the things we need to survive – and not just survive, but thrive – is the connection to something greater than ourselves.” Thus begins Mastin Kipp’s exploration on how to get beyond our comfort zone and find expansiveness in our lives. In this Speakeasy talk from Wanderlust Squaw, “The Daily Love” creator describes how this universal need for connection can get supplanted by sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll, but that it can be re-discovered if we address and upgrade our patterns. Mastin enlightens us on the reasons why: • Getting what (you think) you want can still totally suck, • The universe has its own way of talking to you, • There’s a difference between positive and empowered thinking. “Where do we get our connection from? From drugs? From breath of fire? From toxic relationships? From ardy chandrasana?” Mastin asks. After you watch this Speakeasy, you’ll be more ready to rise to the challenge of identifying what galvanizes your purpose and lifts you toward a life with purpose.
