Living Our Philosophy: The Art of Embodiment - Radical Trekking - Ayelet Baron

Living our philosophy is a journey that transcends mere words. It’s about letting our actions, decisions, and everyday life reflect our core values. When we embody our philosophy, we create a living example of our values, influencing not through persuasion but through demonstration.

It’s one thing to talk about sustainability, yet it’s another to mindlessly consume in ways that harm the very environment we claim to protect. Why do we trust the words of someone who speaks of sustainability, yet acts in disregard of the planet’s wellbeing?

Most of us are growing wary of rhetoric and slogans because words are no longer enough. And we are also understanding that any change begins with our own alignment and embodiment.

This journey is one of growth. Our own ability to question who we trust and also hold ourselves accountable to be in alignment. It challenges us to continuously align our actions with our evolving understanding of the world. This process is not static; it requires adaptability and self-reflection, leading to personal development and greater embodiment.

Imagine someone who believes deeply in environmental sustainability. Rather than spending time explaining why, we choose a lifestyle that echoes our values. Our life becomes a canvas, painting a vivid picture of our commitment to this way of life.

Such embodiment fosters authenticity. It’s one thing to speak about what we believe in; it’s another to live it out every day. This authenticity resonates more deeply than any speech could. It builds trust and makes us trustworthy since we no longer just spew beliefs.

Integrity through embodiment also comes naturally. Living our philosophy promotes harmony. When we’re true to our values, we acknowledge anyone’s opportunity to be the same; no longer needing to be right or win.

Embodying our philosophy is about creating a narrative of our life that aligns with our deepest values. It’s a powerful and authentic way to influence change and foster a healthy environment where diverse philosophies coexist, not in debate, but in harmonious action. And it’s not for everyone, yet.

“Don Juan assured me that in order to accomplish the feat of making myself miserable I had to work in a most intense fashion, and that it was absurd. I had now realized I could work just the same in making myself complete and strong. ‘The trick is in what one emphasizes,’ he said. ‘We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.’”—Carlos Castaneda
