FiDE #8 - Wholeness

Are we always whole or are we fragmented? If we assume that we are always whole, although suppress some aspect of our wholeness from time to time, what symptoms can we than use to get aware of imbalances?

In this episode we discuss different sense-making capacities regarding our body, mind, heart and soul, as we see wholeness as the simultaneous emergence and occurrence of physical, mental, social-emotional and spiritual functions that every life form possesses, for example a human being, a team, a business, society as whole, as well as planet earth.

In order to open up to see new possibilities we need to believe to see – use our mental capacity to describe something physical. For humans language proves to be an essential element to express abstract, metaphysical concepts to others. Asking questions can help to see things from a new perception, for example: What do we do? How do we do it? Why do we do it? What assumptions do we hold?


The FiDE podcast - an exploration of life.

FiDE is the abbreviation for the Foundation for Intentional Decisions. At the same time it means trust in Latin. How would a life, a way of working and a society based on trust look like?

In this series of ten episodes Jens Rinnelt and Stellan Nordahl explore life - what it means, what it implies and how we can look at it, choosing life-affirming directions.

If life is what we perceive as life, what then is perception? What informs our perception, or in other words how do we make sense of the world? And can we choose how we look at the world?

In this webcast we embark on a philosophical and experience-based journey to explore life itself and the fundamental assumptions we hold about it. We look at how we form the worldviews, our perception, that we hold. We explore what happens if we choose to take on a different pair of glasses of how we look at the world.

Adopting a complex, holistic and life-affirming worldview provides us with a practical and applicable ethical model for everyday decision-making on societal, organizational, team and personal level.
