Jane Fonda on Life’s Third Act for TEDx Women

Interesting talk by Jane about how the ascension of the human spirit reverses entropy (the universal arc of deterioration and decay), and how moving into our ‘Elder’ years has the potential to bring us ‘into wholeness, authenticity and wisdom’.

The writer remembers an article she read some time ago (and cannot remember the source), which included the idea that the focus for our personal work and the alternatives in our older years are: finding our ways to integration, or despair….

Love the Victor Frankl quotation Jane refers to (from ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’):-

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms — to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
