Film: Being in the World


"...the source of meaning in our lives isn't in us...it's in our way of "being" in the world.

...when people are at their best and most absorbed in doing a skillful thing, they lose themselves
into their absorption and the distinction between the master and the world disappears.
 

...Seeing what the masters can do and seeing that we can do it to, that everybody can, in their way, bring out what's best in themselves, and in the world, we can experience what people call the sacred."

A quote from Hubert Dreyfus, from the documentary "Being in the World" (a film on Heidegger and existentialism, which doesn't dig very deep but is a pleasant watch).
