Inner Lives: How Loneliness Tells You Where to Go, with David Whyte
The third episode of our four-part mini-series, Inner Lives, is live.
In an era when we're seemingly busier than ever, we're inundated with content, we're performing on social media, how do people maintain their inner lives? There are plenty of columns out there dealing with how to manage emails, commutes, and chores, and relationships with colleagues, friends, and family members—and we love reading them. But, as we do so, we find ourselves thinking: What about our relationships with ourselves?
Today, poet and philosopher David Whyte discusses his inner life and the importance of loneliness: "I've always felt that when you do feel loneliness, it's always a kind of inverse measure of what you actually belong to," he says. "[I]t actually tells you where to go."
