What must die in you, so that you may live?
Death is a vital part of life. In fact, death makes room for life. Sohail takes us through a journey of an important kind of death we must all embrace - conceptual death. From our childhood into our adulthood, we have experiences which plant in us beliefs of what is possible and not possible. Some of these are useful, but many inhibit the scope and potential of our lives. He explores the concepts of race and belonging, work and worthiness, and identity and freedom. A talk of the series of conceptual deaths that have the power to free us to be who we want to be, to live how we want to live, to love how we want to love - ultimately, to play the game of life on our own terms. He asks the question: “What must die in you, so that you may live?”
