This paper is based on slide talks presented to the general public. Those talks and this paper present a way of accessing life, living, and who one is for oneself, based on studying masters (e.g., master athletes, master physicists, master educators, master physicians, and master artists).
Like masters of any specialized area, while masters of life are innately ordinary people, they do perceive and comprehend life (experience life) – the world, others, and themselves – differently than most of us do. As a result, they interact with the world, others, and themselves differently than most of us do. And, it is the way in which they interact with life and with themselves that makes them extraordinarily effective in dealing with life while enjoying an exceptionally high quality of life.
This paper spells out the way masters of life access life, living, and themselves, and does so in words that make mastery of life accessible to the rest of us ordinary people.
