God when i will send a famine on the land not a famine of bread nor thirst for water but of hearing the word of the lord they shall from sea to sea and from north to east they run to and fro to seek the word of the lord but they shall not find it.

Not a fan of brad north thirst for water. I'm going to send a famine of hearing the words of the lord people will run to and fro from cdc from north to east seeking the word of the lord.

Just think about this world with all of its evil and wickedness and injustice and no word from god about who he is. How know him about hope that we have as we look to the future. We would be hopeless.

One point four million of them and you know what they don't have to makes them unreached that don't have the word of god they don't have hope it's found and god's word they don't have the revelation of who he is and what he's done to save us from our sins so we can know him and walk with him and hear from an experienced relationship with and they don't have that because nobody's taking it tooth and they've had somebody go to the demari ramani people. Nobody's gone there and share the word of god with him. Oh god we raise you for your word. We praise you for the gift that it is to us. We love your word. We forgive us for any ways we might be in our lives as those reprint on this podcast neglecting. Your word right. Now gunnery pray that we would meditate on your word day and neither in memorize soaking in that we would read it and studied and digested and then do it. Obey it live. According to god thank you thank you. Thank you for not leaving us in a famine without your word. Thank you to run around seeking your word and not be able to find it. Thank you that we have access to it and we have your word in front of us anytime we can download or we can look at it anytime. We can read it anytime. Thank you for your word. In our language battery pray for the demari romani. People who don't have your word. Nobody's proclaimed it to them. Nobody's taken it to them. So many people among the romani who've never registered never heard your word god referring to you're gonna referring for the thousands of languages where your is either still being translated or is not even started being translated yet. God we pray he would change that cause your church rise up and give our resources to translate the bible into every language in the world so that every single person every single nation has your word got pray for the success of bible translation gallery.

"You. I remember playing house music for you on. And i and i was excited to play for you. And i'm like listen to this. And i played it for you and i'm sure it was a terrible song. Like you knows what it was like prodigy yourself. I've had to two very powerful experiences that i needed where people are respected rejected. The music that i liked and one of them was when i played smith for joe stupidest thing to do in the look on his face of like just not. I don't look was so funny because it was a look like sympathy and confusion. Because he's in and his response just like you shouldn't listen to this and then when i played whatever it was and what i know it couldn't have been a good song. I know how i had it. Or what medium it was stored on. What do you think you know when you're excited about a certain style of music. Play it for someone you respect. And they don't like it hurt. But i remember i played it feeling. What do you think and you just kind of like shook your head and you said it just makes me feel cold. Well you gotta remember like I started really really early right. So so when i was even maybe than a eleven or twelve i was already here and things like gaza which everything about the guys who was like no. They didn't want light. Show ryan vin. Today when i go play in sweden with home europeans. Always come to you guys. You should really get a light show. And i don't know what to say because coming from that world back then. There's nothing wrong with that but like coming from that world becton where you didn't even have access to the idea lights or or computer programs. There was this idea that like if all you had was a guitar in the stairwell where recorded in my dorm that you extensively had to go climb up in the caves like through star. Something just figure it out. Yeah i know. And because we have the beatles as sort of the base jumping off point of basically all rock music in terms of you know expansion curiosity like exploration i just you know you see a picture of john lennon's sitting at a piano or or all mccartney sitting at a piano when they sat down piano that meant it's time to listen closely. Something serious is going to happen right right. You're not thinking about no one thinks about plug ins or you know. Electric music symbolized a lot of kind of silly equipment and clothing and culture stuff to me at the time so at being that i was in the very middle of that seat where i was. I all visit guitar. And i was in a room and once i walked out of that room and showed the world what i've been working on for years and years and years it just it had to be legitimate. It had to be good so that was just like a code. I was trying to crack. So then you walk with like the the culture of electronic music at the time and no offense to anybody. i know it's been re scripted as a very fashionable thing but the fashion of it was so embarrassing. Do you know what i mean. Yeah i know you clock in mean you mean those big ass pants. We are all wearing in the pacify fires at the time in my asheville and just candy alice's in close and stuff and was no rains up there so when i see people trying to echo. Something they know is going on in the big city in small towns. I always feel kinda bad for alike. I mean that's you're right. You know to wear those pants and the little lake. You know wife beater shirt and like dance. Around with your headband. In between classes in the lobby of the you know like it just look so fucking tongue and they were all in the muppet babies. I'm just saying like the aesthetic. i remember you know. I'll tell you this though to me. The thing about that aesthetic that in the thing about the small town rave scene and the thing about it is i don't i to this day i have never encountered anything more satanic then looking at someone dressed like you know a toddler wearing like a muppet babies t shirt covered in glitter painted. Fingernails glows sting. How vegas vips. what's it called the vape. Vicks vapor rub. You know what. I mean you look. You're like one of these raves before he became anything i in one of these raves. You're high as a fucking kite on some kind of crazy drug and you look over. And there's someone dressed like a toddler whose eyes have rolled completely back in their head on basically a seizure. 'cause they're on so much ecstasy and they're in like a cuddle puddle candy necklaces. The wafting sin old men ship. People used to rub on their chest when they add a cold rising up from these like weird vignettes of people dressed like babies so high. Where where this crazy. Fucking music coming out of giants. Wall war bob this day. I've never seen anything is like more like weirdly satanic. You know what. I mean because it was and i don't know if that was the intention if it's like look we're going to dress babies but we're going to be so fucking insanely you're you're right it's like you're i hope nobody listening just thinks like trying to mutilate a culture fashion. It's not about thou. You're basically seeing tex watson. The moment after manson. I convinced in to drop everything. You know what it means because like once once somebody sees that. There's this like the older brother that's doing this cooler thing. And then they go out and buy the outfit. There's a moment of inflation where they think they know everything and really. They're just in this really dangerous like you're saying these dangerous waters of kind of vague conformism. That are. it's such a static moment. We all experience it and we all remember the clothes that we bought. We all remember the fucking hairstyle. We were totally diluted but at that moment that kid doesn't get it and they think they're onto this thing and you don't you don't get it and you're like i mean you're kind of feeling so bad yourself in them finding yourself in world and i come of hard core in an hardcore. It was late in punk. You know the entire structure of punk socially like the the sentiment of punk with all about like let's get back to what's real and then the entire world of the subculture was a bunch of people posing as tougher or more real but like no one person really felt that way so there was this intense competition trying to embody this sense of punk. So you've got this entry level kind of conformism just running rampant and already wrestled with that with all my high school buddies in our in our first heartland so so by the time. I'm getting a college. I mean i kind of seen these patterns and you have to understand. The pain of competing with other little boys like when you're in high. School is so deep. it's such a deep cut because inside. I just thought like why. Wanna do this thing you know. I believe in the power of art. I believe in the songs of the ability. This open horizon of.

I will not revoke the punishment because they sell the righteous for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals those who trample the head of the poor into the dust of the earth and turn aside the way of the afflicted god's judgment upon israel for israel's sins continues and the rest of this verse and the verses that follow but it is sobering to read this first initial indictment says god speaking to his any says they sell the righteous for silver. What does that mean. We don't know exact specific context here it. It could mean that basically they have forsaken righteousness in order to gain money to the prize. Money more than righteousness and used all kinds of unrighteous means to gain money or it it could literally mean selling people could be a picture of slavery over indebtedness for something in order to gain money the verse goes on to say they sell the needy for a pair of sandals sa- basically they are prizing a pair of sandals more than they are people who are needy which continues on to verse seven. They trample the head of the poor into the dust of the earth and turn aside the way of the afflicted instead of caring for the afflicted they turn away from the afflicted instead of helping the poor that trampling upon the head of the poor of see it. god's indictment of his people starts interestingly not with their idolatry which was evident and is evident other places in amos but with their injustice with the way they had unjustly treated specifically the needy the poor and the afflicted so apparently according to amos chapter two verse six in seven justice for the needy and the poor and if flitted is and must be a priority among god's people so god we pray that justice and mercy for the needy and the poor and the afflicted would be a priority among us in my life in the life of every single person. Prang right now. God we pray that you would help us to reflect your justice in your mercy for the needy and the poor and the afflicted in this world where we are surrounded by knees were surrounded by poverty where we're surrounded by people who are afflicted. God help us to glorify you to honor you to reflect you by showing your justice in your love for the needy the poor and the afflicted around us scott even today in our lives. Help us to think through specifically what that means for us to not prioritize possessions for ourselves over the needy not to ignore or trample the head of the poor not turn aside from the way of the afflicted by to turn to them and to care for them. God please show us what this means in each of our lives our families and as your people in your church help us not to send in these ways we see amos chapter two for six and seven not to send by neglecting the needy and the poor and turning away from the afflicted god help us to care for the needy the poor and afflicted we pray in jesus name.

A radically different Prime Day: Heres what to expect
"Prime Day is this week the fact of the coronavirus it's happening far later in the year right ahead of black Friday. So what are we expecting? I'm Roger Chang and this is your daily charge with me is retail expert and daily charge regular Fox ribbon welcome Ben. Prime Day is hitting tomorrow. What are you expecting? So many deals so many deals in so many saves. What like just alive. I know I know I'm sounding sarcastic but it is true. This is basically the unofficial kickoff to the holiday selling season not just for Amazon but Amazon has basically figured out a way to dictate to every other retailer when to start their deals for the holidays. So what will be very interesting is to see. How much the steals away from Black Friday and cyber Monday because it could actually be pretty notable this year unlike in previous years where Prime Day was July was kind of its own thing, right? That's a really good point and. One cares about in terms of were stretching out the holiday shopping season longer than ever I feel like it's it's starting even sooner now, and as you said, it's sort of the prime day unofficially kicks off the holiday shopping season. With. Black Friday at the end of next month and Prime Day Nalic. Is there a risk of retail overload people just being inundated sales like how long can this keep up? No, they're absolutely could be a situation with retail overload. and. That's why I'm sure a lot of retailers are front loading some of their best black Friday deals around Prime Day. We've already seen it with best buy Walmart target. They're all announcing you know these delays and you know the big save and all that other nonsense but that's that's because. the economy is lousy unemployment is way up and there's no stimulus. If there was a stimulus there, there was a general impression in the retail world from analysts that I talked to that Amazon was in essence trying to hold its breath long enough for another stimulus to come through because when the last one came through, there was a huge surge in consumer spending for all sorts of things work from home gear entertainment. People are renovating their houses, all sorts of stuff, and you know had DC gotten its act together. This could have been very well timed for that where all the retailers we're going to get a nice big benefit. So Black Friday might be saved by the potential of a stimulus happening around November to late November. But as we know that is not guaranteed. We've been holding our breath and waiting for another stimulus Watson's May. So, that could mean that black Friday will definitely have plenty of deals bud a lot of consumers because of the economic situation that we're in. They're not gonNa have as much of what what's the word like as much ammunition because they've already been ex they've already exhausted their budgets around Prime Day. So they're just not gonNA have as much money to spend around black Friday cyber Monday. So in that respect in terms of. I guess being a smart buyer and trying to get the best deals is it's Margaret by early or would it be smarter to wait? Till you know everyone else's sort of exhausted from the buying scoop in those last minute deals. Okay. So I don't want like come off as being like you know by by by whatever guide like I frankly don't care if you buy holiday gifts or not. That's not really my job here. However, if you are buying stuff for the holidays, if you do have things that you wanNA, buy every single indication. Points to buying early, and there are a number of reasons for that. One of them is there have been massive supply chain constraints throughout the year because of Corona virus, any high demand items which include work from home stuff electrtonics anything that you think your neighbor might wind everybody else wants to, and that could run out a lot faster this holiday season. So that's a reason to buy early another reason by. Early. Is Because of delivery times. So delivery shipments, everybody's buying online a lot more deliveries or bottle necking. I don't need to remind people that there's also a lot more ballots by mail. That's GONNA put in additional strain on the US Postal Service. So that's another very, very good reason a by early. So do I care whether you buy on Prime Day or not? No absolutely not I don't care if. You got a toaster bite if you WANNA toaster, you should buy it around Prime Day. So hopefully, I conveyed that well enough because I'm not I'm not trying to get you to buy anything by if that is very clear and direct advice related to if you want to buy something and you have the money to it, that's that's great and thank you. You've successfully convinced me to not by test or now. So, beyond the beyond the timing, which is obviously very different primed is usually in the middle summer. What else can we expect that that's going to be different about this prime day? So the thing that I find most interesting or useful related to this is kind of like the social awareness element that Amos on is embedding into Prime Day. So this has been a really difficult year. Everybody's working from home, they're doing remote learning and so there. It's not like super upfront as far as like they're they're China plaster, their website with black lives matter banners, which which they did by the way earlier this year. But they are doing a couple of special deals like for instance, if you spend ten dollars on small businesses. That are that are on its website. Amazon will then give you like Amazon pays for it a ten dollar gift certificate that you can spend on prime day. So that's a really obvious way to benefit small businesses. There are also really promoting their charitable feature, which is called Amazon smile. So I, these are these are you know little ways but still very useful ways for them to use primed as a platform to. Actually benefit smaller businesses charities a lot of places that have been hurting during coronavirus and do it in such a way that like you know we're still we're still celebrating this big sale. So we're not trying to like remind you of how awful things are but also be aware that like, Hey, if you if you do spend like there could actually be like a social benefit related to it as well. Judge. And for Amazon like how big of deal is prime day going to be it's This going to be like previous ones will the coronavirus have an impact either positive or negative? What what are we looking at? This will definitely be I can't say definitely because I don't have a crystal ball, but this is expected to be the biggest prime day yet, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that just you know people are buying online a lot more this year in general My expectation is is that this is actually going to be a bigger deal for traditional retailers in small businesses. Amazon has been selling like crazy all year. Regardless they're gonNA do really well on prime day to they're going to do really well on black Friday and cyber Monday. By kind of halo effect that black that Prime Day is going to create I, think is going to help a lot of these other retailers that have been in more of a bind in more difficulty this year. So in that regard, the way to go prime day you know you're you're helping more retailers go into bankruptcy protection even though they've traditionally driven a bunch of them into bankruptcy protection there helping them stave off bankruptcy protection got it, and like looking at them from the consumer perspective, what are they? They really in the mood to spend spence ban and go crazy with shopping this holiday season yeah absolutely I think people you know they would like the distraction number one. Of something that's not constantly reminding them of the Corona virus and the election which is exhausting both of those are exhausting and They need stuff Amazon in their advertising about this really focuses more on the practicality of prime day like stuff that you need around your house like home entertainment stuff work from home stuff they're trying to emphasize that a little bit more, and if you could get a deal on that and you could use it and it makes your life a little bit easier then great that's fantastic and get a deal on it. So yeah, I think. Consumers will definitely be into it, and if they can front load some of their holiday spending and get get some savings on stuff that he's going to go out of stock earlier than than more power to you. So yeah, I definitely expect consumers to show up in a big way for prime day this year

All The Fun Stuff (That Shouldn't Be in Your Drinking Water
"Our guest today is Maury Walker and together, we're going to talk about what's in your water and more than ever. That answer is stuff that shouldn't be Maury. Welcome. Thank you. It's great to be here. We're so happy that you're here. Could you maybe just tell everybody who you are what you do? Yeah. So I am actually at Duke University, I make graduate students starting my fifth year studying micro-plastics. So my doctoral dissertation is in civil and Environmental Engineering Department. Uh studying chemicals associated to plastic and how they end up in. Things like our fresh water or the stomach acid in a bird or fish, and just understanding how those chemicals transform in possibly more toxic than the original products. But yeah, I'm a engineer and chemist. Chemists, Great Brian it's just like you. Same as me yes. Amos me you said, you went to Duke and Queen you love Duke Right look. It's not that I don't love. Duke. It's one of my good friends growing up as like a UNC basketball guy and so. I know I know I know I know sorry about this Amari. Like. We. Don't have to high. It's it's it's different than. Saying. My undergrad was at UC. Berkeley. So my to rival his Stanford right now. Oh Nice Nice Nice my wife. And my wife went to Stanford but she also doesn't care about sports and so people are very confused on they're like Berkeley's terrible. She's we can all be friends. Yeah. We we can work on it. Said holy cow quickly as a reminder to everyone because we haven't done this in a while Our goal always is to provide some context for what we're talking about today and then dig into a action oriented questions that we can all ask to help support today's topic and and Amaury Yup that sounds pretty great to me. We'll see if he can remember how to do this been a little bit of a hiatus. which is which things have been a little a little crazy out there. Just, a little bit just a little bit anywhere anyways Ann Mari We like to start with one important question to set the tone for the chaos follow Instead of saying, tell us your entire life story we like to ask Amari wire you vital to the survival of the species. If I just had like a compilation of guests making that noise after first reaction we need to do that. Yeah it's great. Great. The the easy answer there is that I'm just one person in a collective of people that care about leaving the world a better place than it started, but I I kind hope to. Be Relevant in the fact that I am a black female environmental engineer in chemist trying to change the world as far as micro-plastics in water quality and you know I'm trying to be an inspiration to other people who may not have considered a career I'm like this or you know a the that you can't be a scientist or engineer and even a science communicator. So I'm hoping to take a little bit more of a public facing way to show people that there are people out there trying to change the world
A 5-Step Process for Transforming Shame.
"Hey. Sober. Souls. How. Are you this week? I was trying to figure out a new way to start the program. So that's what you got. Oh my goodness. So many of you wrote me after last week's podcast you. I guess a lot of us are having the Blah's here in. The United States, especially around what's happening with covid. into the second wave or God only knows what we're into, but we're in deep and so thanks for all the kind words about. Last, week's podcast. This week I thought I'd shift gears and dive deep into one of those super, fun topics, shame. I. Talk About it periodically. But this week, I wanted to share an info graph amongst other things that I came across a while ago and had saved and was just waiting for the right time to talk about shame. You know how that goes some of you out there may be familiar with the national. Institute. For Clinical, application of behavioral, medicine? Not sure why you would be if you are. are in the business, but the information infra graph really got me thinking because I love me a good visual of how to move through like a roadmap and this particular infra graph has one of those ask lines that takes you through different ways to transform shame with self compassion, which as you all know, I'm a strong believer in what's difficult for most of us however is this number one, the first step on this infographics, they have a little shame. Cute. Little figure you know walking through this roadmap. The first step is understanding the nature of shame. So I, thought, I'd cultivate some awareness with you around what the heck that means. What is shame? How do we get it? I know I've spoken about this before, but hopefully, today I will share with you just a little bit of a different way to look at it. Shame is one of those things that stays with us once we get it, it's not something we can ectomy out or something. There's a cure for shame at its essence is the inner experience of being not wanted. It's a feeling of worthlessness and rejection being cast out. Whereas guilt is believing that one has done. Something bad shame is believing that we are bad. Shame is believing that I'm not loved because I'm not loveable. She always carries with it. The sense that there is nothing. We can do to purge, it's burdensome and toxic presents. The. Options for shame is that you can either minimize it deny it. Absorb it endure it. Or Transform, and that's what I'm going to try and do with you today in this little bit of time that we have together. What is known for sure is that shame has been around since we have and it is so painful and so debilitating that history has mounds of evidence of people, developing thousands of coping strategies, conscious, and unconscious, numbing, and destructive to avoid the torture of shame, and while shame has taken on. A. Group experience in communities meaning that one of the worst things that can happen is for the community to share Amos to convey that we're not fit to live in the community to be exiled. However, we do this to ourselves. Oh, by ourselves. We conveyed to us the deepest us that we're not worthy to belong in our communities. In this very imperfect world. We are all nurtured by parents who were themselves in some sense shamed. We have learned to feel not only their shame, but our shame, we learn this, we learn to feel shame not only from those who care for us, but then develop our own inner shame in order to understand this better I want to share what kind of families become shame makers most profoundly. About. Adverse time -hood experiences were talking sure about physical abuse and sexual abuse and other very violent home environments, but we're also talking about the chaos of the emotional neglectful family.
China launches its first solo mission to Mars in bold attempt to land on the red planet
"China has launched its first mission aimed at landing a rover on Mars rockets to call from one chang on the southern island of Nan. The probe is expected to arrive in orbit around Mars in February. Next on Ma's in February next year. Here's Jonathan Amos, the Tian Wen Rover will aim for the giant Utopia plain just north of the planet's equator to study the region's rocks and look for ice. To succeed, though it will have to overcome the infamous seven minutes of terror the time it takes to slow a high velocity entry into Mars atmosphere and avoid crashing into the ground. To date, only America has truly mastered the technology necessary to negotiate this perilous drop to the dusty world
"amos" Discussed on The Bible Recap
"Today. We've finished our nineteen th book of the Bible congratulations all right. Let's wrap up the back half of Amos. He starts by calling out the leaders of the land who relax into lives of luxury and pay no mind to the needy and poor, and who fail to notice that they've gotten so far off track in their relationship with God he promises destruction for all the ways they foresaken God. In Chapter Seven God shows Amos three different images, and they all foretell destruction twice Amos pleads with God to relent and he does. Remember how the profit Jona didn't want the people of Nin- to repent and Guy pointed out how ridiculous that was. Amos is the opposite of Jona. He Begs God to stay his hand. But when the third vision appears, Amos starts to get the point that this is inevitable, a necessary part of God's processed attorneys people's hearts back to himself. The first vision was of locus eating at the old and devouring all the farmer had to live on after had paid the king with the first portion of growth. The second was a fire devouring everything. and. While both of those visions involved land, the third vision is a construction image. Amos sees a plumb line which is a tool used to make sure Wall Street. It's like a level but vertical and Zonta L- if a wall isn't vertical, it's going to collapse eventually leaning Tower of Pisa. Your days are numbered. The Metaphor God setting up here is that the northern Kingdom of Israel is about to collapse because they're so far off the standard and can't be set right. As you can imagine none of this sits well with Amazon. Who was the priest at the time? Amazon goes to Kim Jerry to accuses Amos of conspiring against him and twist the prophecies to help his point. Then Amazon tries to deport, Amos. I can't imagine how this must feel for Amos. Remember how he begged God to relent. He's just the Messenger here and he's being targeted I want to give him a hug. Obeying. God doesn't mean everyone will understand your motives or honor your actions, but despite Amazon as lies Amos knows the truth, he knows who God is, and he knows who he is to God. A humble servant sent to speak the truth. And God has more words to speak to Amazon through Amos. He doesn't relent. Amos says that Amazon will lose. All his land is. Wife will become a prostitute. And he and his kids will die, oh, and Israel is still going into exile. Then Amos has a fourth vision of summer fruit, and this one makes less sense to those of us who don't know Hebrew so let me draw an analogy. Let's say God shows me a vision of my foot on the break of a car and asked me what I see and I say I see breaks, and then God responds thus. Will I break them in half? Gods making that kind of play on words here because the Hebrew word for summer, fruit is pronounced the same way as the word for end. Then God says that the Kingdom of Israel is coming to an end. In chapter eight God promises something that is terrifying to me. He tells them he's going to take away his words that there will be a famine and a drought of his words. They had rejected his words when they were readily available to them. That despised them, so he says no more. And this happens not long after this point. It's almost certainly what is referred to as the four hundred years of silence that occurs between the end of the Old Testament and the beginning of the new. Testament were still about three hundred years away from that, but it's coming. The fifth and final vision is of the Lord standing beside the altar, commanding the place to be destroyed. What place, exactly we're not sure, but it seems likely that it's referring to the false places of worship, either the places of Idol, worship, or the shrine in Bethany, where they're not supposed to be offering sacrifices to him, but still are. The rest of this vision might feel harsh, but again we have to zoom out and remember what Israel has done that led up to this. God says he has fixed his eyes on his enemies for evil and not for good. Is this easy to swallow. No, but is this unjust absolutely not. And despite their sin, he still preserving a remnant. This feels a lot like when he had to wait for all the unbelieving Israelites to die before he could bring the rest of the people into the promised land. They've earned destruction, but he promises mercy of all the people in this story. Those who get mercy are the only ones who don't get what they deserve. And the book ends by reminding US part this place and the whole story. Judgment isn't the end. Destruction isn't the point. God's goal in punishment is always restoration, and these are steps on the path to that place. God hasn't cast off his people. They're suffering the consequences of their actions, but he still loves them. His discipline is a part of his love, just like any good parent. y'All way promises to raise up to repair to rebuild to restore. He has his heart set on restoration. He's playing the long game here and he gives them a vision of what's to come so that they don't lose heart in the middle of the destruction. In a time when they're about to counter, what will feel like his rejection? He reminds them of the great love. He has for them. Today. My God shot was an eight eight to ten where Amos is describing the day of the Lord's judgment. The imagery and events in this section. Remind me of something this any of this ring a bell to you when it's all strung together like this. In Verse Eight, the land trembled in verse, nine The Sun went down at noon, and the Earth was darkened in broad daylight in verse ten, there was a feast that turned into morning, and the morning was like that of the death of an only son. Seven Hundred Years after this was written in the middle of the celebration of the Passover feast land trembled, and the sky went black in the middle of the day when God the son, the only son died. Everything God is about to put Israel through. He went through himself and he went through it for them to bring them back to himself, and he went through it for you and for me. Descend require severe punishment. Yes does it seem unfair. Absolutely in the most unfair thing of all is that I'll never received that punishment myself because Jesus took it on my behalf. He's where the joyous. Church College or conference that brings in people like me to speak. If so I would love to connect with them. Maybe someday I can speak to you. Face to face instead of your phone. I'd like. If this sounds like a possibility, you can have the powers that be fill up speaker request. Form on my website.
"amos" Discussed on The Friends of Israel Today
"In what is now the country of so there was expansion there was wealth that was being built because of new trade routes that were going through wealth began to accumulate in their cities. Commerce thrived in Israel, and eventually what happens is an upper-class emerges. Expensive homes are now being built, and the rich are enjoying a very lazy and indulgent lifestyle while the poor in Israel. Become targets become targets for legal and economic exploitation slavery for debt was easily accepted during this time, and really the standards of morality had sunk to a new low in Israel. But here's what's interesting, though as standards for morality sink to a new low. There was a flourishing of religion. The people happily the Israelites happily went to their places of worship for yearly festivals. They gladly offered their sacrifices. They even considered the fact that God was with them. And as a result, they considered themselves immune to disaster. You know opulence can oftentimes be mistake as a blessing from God. And in the World God calls Amos to be a prophet to unveil the injustices done in the land. The first injustice is directed actually toward God himself. It's religious hypocrisy. Listen to this accusation that brings against Israel as he speaks the words of the Lord and Amos Chapter Five, says this I absolutely despise your festivals. The Lord says to Israel I get no pleasure from your religious assemblies. Even if you offer me burnt in grain offerings, I will not be satisfied. I won't look on with favor on your peace offerings a fattened cavs. Take away from me your noisy songs. I don't even want to hear the music of your stringed instruments. Justice must flow like torrents of water, righteous acts like a stream that never drives up. You did not bring me sacrifices in grain. During the forty years you spent in the Wilderness family of Israel. You will pick up your images of sick, Kothe your king, and key your star guide which you made for yourselves. Look at this as as as the Lord is using Amos to speak look at this injustice of false worship to God as one commentator put it. He says this false worship arises from sinful lives is worse than unacceptable to the Lord that these Israelites about this. This is what Amos is is accusing them of. He's accusing them of hollowing out true worship of God and and. And really only leaving the ritual aspects of it. Yes, they came for the mandatory festivals. The Passover Feast of Chevelle the Feast of Tabernacles. Yes, they offer up sacrifices regularly, but God says he rejects them he he even would reject the peace offering, which is a fellowship offering shows the relational breakdown between the Israelites and God that God was even unwilling to fellowship with them. In authentic worship is an injustice in God's eyes. Because see true worship wouldn't simply manifest itself in offering sacrifices are singing songs see true worship is revealed in obedience to the Lord, the way we love God should reflect itself in the way we love, and treat those around us. It's the reason in the middle of judging Israel for in authentic worship, the Lord says justice must flow like torrents of water, righteous actions like a stream that never dries up friends. What God is saying here through his, prophet? Amos! Is. Enact justice unless it's connected to obedience in following God everyone who talks about doing justice bringing justice? Being a people of justice are just talking good talk, 'cause he true changing justice can only happen when it's in accordance with obedience to the Lord, and these Israelites are going through the motions. They're just enjoying life. They're doing their due diligence. When it comes to worship in believing God is pleased while God saying he's not pleased, and Israel is on the fast track to judgment for neglecting what true worship is. See True. Starts first with God.

"We're back with Tori Amos and heads up to listeners. We will be discussing. Sexual Assault Caroline. Something jumped out to me when I was Internet researching for this episode because I noticed that whereas Tori content is all over Tumbler. There's barely a stiffer on gifts. And that feels like an apt analogy for her IRA fandom because it is deep and significant and like the feelings that Tori Amos simply cannot be contained in a Gif. Yeah. The love is too deep. Kristen it is too deep and her connection to feminist fans is really remained just so strong over the years. One Tory move that I love was hurt. Two thousand one album strange little girls which consisted entirely of covers of songs written by men but reinterpreted from a woman's point of view so one of the standouts on the record is her cover of Eminem's ninety seven Bonnie and Clyde which she sang from the perspective of the fictional wife that eminem kills in the original earaches place call. Heaven place called him. Please call prison place call jail. Data's probably on his way to all from one because mom was Stepson. Amazing and Look Caroline. I also incorrectly figured that her lasting feminist just came from the politics of her music but she's also inspired incredible real world activism ever since she went solo in the early nineties. Yeah one of her biggest hits off of little earthquakes is a song called me and a gun. It's about when Tori was raped at gunpoint when she was twenty one. It was terrifying and traumatizing and like so many survivors. She didn't report it to police. She only shared the details of what happened. A couple times in interviews but for six straight years Tori performed me and a gun at every single one of her live shows. It's Acapella so no company meant and the song is written sued. You were there with her with me as it's playing out with me. Hanoch on on my and I say Holy Holy.

"The band's music was pretty commercial and a distant cry from the piano. Heavy Sonic novels. That would become the quintessential Tori Amos sound. And y'all we have to talk about the album cover for a second so it's like peak eighties Tories. Red Hair is huge. She's wearing a black bra metallic boost. Ea and black elbow gloves and she's inexplicably holding a giant sword across her shoulders like Tori is basically a guns and roses meets three musketeers. Both commercially and critically. Why can't Tori reads? Album was a lemon after two months. The record label pulled the plug in quit promoting it after that project flopped Tori repented to the muses and got back to basics that meant playing in piano bars again to make rent and writing a new album as just Tori Amos no band. No big hair stick because I betrayed myself on that in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. The crawling back out of that is something but the piano forgave me. And the muses forgave me so the writing of little earthquakes was that journey when Tori finished her new solo album. The one that would become her. Nineteen ninety-two breakout. Little earthquakes record label. Execs still had a different sound in mind for her when I turned it in. They wanted to mute the piano and insert the guitars instead yet. With the major exception of piano playing Kate Bush Tori was instantly compared to little earthquakes. Came out the known formula for successful female singer. Songwriters had been pretty girl with guitar. Like Bobbie Gentry or Carly Simon. But Tori was having none of it. There was something that Joe said. No no some sell me sell me. What did it feel like though when So you did. You did stand up to those record exacts. He wanted to meet the piano but in especially as a still emerging artists at the time. How did you effectively resist their power? Though it was just one of those things where by the lesson of getting out of that boosts Ta that I'd put myself in an. I don't know what possessed me to think that. That was my feminist self expressing herself. I don't know what happened as my mother said to me on the phone she goes honey. You got out of the day. You're not going back you. Are you know that course it? That knows you can't breathe and find your voice. I mean it became very metaphorical of women of last several hundred years and I started thinking no no and it was just so clear clear balance and the muses were there and they said we stand firm and they also said but you'd better come up with a plan young lady because they want a different tone and so my plan was for them to sell my contract to somebody else but they wouldn't tell me because he said if so and so once you talk zone so why don't you. Why should I want you? I'm like Oh my God and I'm locked in for eight record contract and it's there option. It's it's a system that let unless you know how the music business was working in can work It's it's a it's so outdated. You can't imagine these contracts. So they can shell you. Don't you see they can hold on to you? And then you can't create for anybody else so we had to come up with a solution and the offering the muses showed me was offered to produce with someone who I respected called gross at the time and we were in a relationship yes and they agreed so we brought forth four more songs and then one of the exects Doug Moore's he actually he called me up and said Tori I just heard silent and I totally get it. I said okay. I'm glad you totally get it. Since that wasn't one of the four that I've turned in but okay and he said it was originally there from it was the bones of quakes. Little earthquakes was released in the US. In nineteen ninety two. The cover is white and inspires with a wooden box in the middle. Where torey squatting and overalls next to a tiny piano and this record was no lemon. Our next guest is making her network television debut and we couldn't be happier that it's taking place on our program. This is her first solo album right here in the very popular CD format. It's called little earthquakes. Ladies and gentlemen here she is Tori Amos Tori. The ultimately went double platinum and critics were into it to rolling stone reviewer. At least Gardner for instance praise. Little earthquakes collection of introspective piano laced ballads. What would you tell your younger self now? About dealing with those record execs. I would tell her that sometimes to negotiate with the boys club you might be wise to have some champagne in the room. Metaphorically a little bubbly and get what she wants as a Badass negotiator instead of being a pirate and Dixon the table in swords out. But the problem ladies is that that was a time when playing two women on Alternative Radio One was too much and especially if you were doing something that they didn't understand. When Tori was coming up in the early to mid nineties she was often pitted against radio. Friendlier contemporaries like Atlantis Morissette or conflated with more cultish artists. Like Bjork they would just say Tari. You're GonNa Destroy Your career and I'm like well if I can't wake up and look at myself in the morning who cares self respect right but that wasn't the currency when you to battle you need to know who you're battling against and you need to know how here because some people cannot hear a confrontation from a woman. You are going to get. The door slammed in your face. Sometimes I'm not saying you play pussycat. I've never I've never played pussycat with these guys. I will play lioness but you know some days. It's best not to put salt on their arm. eat it. Little earthquakes reached number fourteen on the billboard charts and one Toria Legion of loyal fans almost overnight and they were drawn to her exactly because of what she fought the boys to sing about giving a middle finger to religion talking about abortion and disclosing sexual assault. Yeah those songs echoed the experiences and Traumas of female and Queer fans in particular had never really had a space to safely express them before hearing little earthquakes. Including that breakout album Tori has released fifteen studio all of which have charted on billboard's top one hundred and she's hoping to release her sweet sixteenth in time for the twenty twenty presidential election. Nuts intentionally all like politics have really been a steady undercurrent of her work since her days in DC. Piano bars and part of that is feeling like she's called to observe and document our collective moments so for instance Nine eleven and its aftermath. Inspired her two thousand to record scarlets. Walk her two thousand seven album. American doll posse aim at the US government and the Iraq war and climate change and native land rights are woven into seventeen native invader even the physical way she plays. Piano Has Been Political Carolina. I found a gem of a paper titled Piano Sexual Fascinations of Tori Amos's sexualize virtuosity in performance amazing and for listeners. Who WERE UNAWARE? Like I was Tori straddles piano bench and S- plays her legs out facing the audience and people could like just not handle it. I mean apparently some feminists in the nineties even gave her shit for it telling her that she was just debasing herself for the Patriarchy but in fact going Spread Eagle just allows her to pivot around more easily between her multiple keyboards that she plays. Yeah I mean it's an amazing sight worth a google image search. That's for sure Kristen I will never sit on a piano bench with my legs closed again. I'm going to buy a piano bench. Just rattle it defiantly and with that we gotta a quick break and when we come back. Torrey tells us how she spearheaded the national rape crisis hotline and how activism continues to inform her role as an artist plus Tori turns the tables and asks us a few questions around.

It's not as if I hear voices but I call them the muses all of a sudden I am getting full structure and I have not thought of this before it is being plugged in almost like I take plug it in and all of a sudden. I'm getting reindeer king just there and seven minutes on we're back and that was Tori Amos on CBS. This morning and twenty seventeen explaining the songwriting inspiration. She gets from her own personal muses and she means by quite literally like Tori says nine muses have been with her since she first started playing music as a kid they feed her bits and pieces of songs but hard work of putting it all together falls on Tori heart. These these muses. They can be very very tough with me and that's fine. They expect a certain amount of work. I have to work for it they. They don't just drop a whole song on me. Usually earlier.

"This year Tories published a new memoir. Slash manifesto called resistance a songwriter story of hope. Change Encourage Kristen. In a Lotta ways. Resistance has defined her career and what still endeared her to fans the kind of Song. She's written the way she's played them and the politics they've given voice to have continually broken. The rules of how female Solo Artists are supposed to perform? And she's still breaking rules to for one thing female. Solo artists are essentially put out to pasture thirty five but fifty six year. Old Tori is in her Cornwall Recording Barn working on a sixteenth album. Yeah and even if you aren't a Tory head you've probably witnessed her pop cultural influence. Oh yeah think of Lady Gaga is most avant garde piano performances or billy eyelashes anti pop queen aesthetic. She talked about how her daughter. Tash has even been like mom. They're cribbing your moves. Yeah I mean I really feel like Tori Amos is the mother of music. I was constantly listening to growing up and obviously I'm still constantly listening to things like Fiona Apple Sarah mclachlan Atlanta's Morissette and solicitors. I cried after we wrapped our interview with her Carolina. You cried yes. I mean. Like by the end of the conversation. I was just so overwhelmed by her warmth and what it took for her to make the music career that ultimately changed a lot of lives. Yeah me too but Carolina. I gotta be honest that I missed the Tori Amos boat growing up like by the time I was in high school and was forming. My own musical tastes. I was way too worried about fitting in to get into an artist like Tori. Who was known by then as like the Superintendent of Mystical feminist which was just not on brand for girls in the early two thousands Brittany? Spears era will kristen. Your ship is finally come in. Because today we're finding out why is Tori Amos such an enduring feminist icon? The Way Torrey tells it she was basically born with music and her blood. She inherited it from her mom's Dad whom she adored. Everybody called him. Papa beautiful tenor voice. He would come off the shift from the factory. They worked in the mills and he would sing to me and we believe that that's what triggered the music. Dna or the music language really came from him and my mother says she always told me that by two and a half. I was playing the piano and it would be hard to reach so they would find ways on their be phone books that I could step onto to climb up to get onto the stool. Remember phone books. Now I guess little piano prodigy is just have to perch on stackable iphone boxes or baby. Tori really was a legit prodigy though like by the time. She could tie her shoes. She was pretty much a classically trained pianist. At the age of five she became the youngest person accepted to the uber prestigious. Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore and fun fact Tori Amos is still. The youngest student ever admitted to peabody problem was Taurean. Peabody weren't a great match like shirt. She could bang out Bach with the best of them at school but at home Tori was secretly falling in love with rock. Gods like led Zeppelin. My mother would be spinning records when once my father went to church in his minister outfit and she would close the door and take off her apron and start playing. Dj and then when my brother would come home from school he would have albums of things that my mother didn't have so they would get me into play everything before my father would come home and he had no idea when I would break out into the stones he thought I was just practicing stuff for the body. Nothing energy wars the devil and then Robert Plant was you know Satan and all that stuff Carolina Tories rebellious streak also reminds me of preachers daughters. I knew growing up. Who were the Queens of sneaking around? Well little toy wasn't much of a sneak when it came to her skepticism about church. Her Grandmother on her Dad's side was always on her about minding her Christian ps and QS and told her dad that Tori didn't know how to love Jesus to which told her dad like Jesus is not the problem. Grandma is the problem. Meanwhile she was also dealing with being by far the youngest student at school. How did being a child prodigy affect you like at that time and also as you were gonNA growing up and finding your own voice will ladies? It is a double edged sword because on one hand you can't process the emotions of others and their expectations. I couldn't anyway at that age. So the idea that you could hold so much promise and then you start to realize. Wait A men. I'm not a concert pianist. That isn't my path that isn't my that is who my skill set. It's it's a particular skill set to be able to play somebody else's work for eight hours a day. Okay and commit your life to that so you have to be one of the best in the world to do that and I'm thinking new. Wait a minute these guys. They were documenting their time. And this was the remember this was the late sixties and the revolution was being driven. When I say the revolutions the change was being driven so much by music and art and so I wanted to be part of that I wanted to document the time so very very early on I started to deviate and that's why I'd have to trick my dad's so he thought I was doing when I suppose to be doing practicing my lessons. So then when I got kicked out of the peabody eleven Dan I think he was brokenhearted. Blessing and I was seen as a failure and somebody that had so much potential and that was a lot to take on so I started smoking. Pot well why did the conservatory kick you out? So you would analyze music in theory you would look at music in be taught theory in a certain way and they were teaching classical. Niro Teaching Jazz but I want them also to look at the songs from the Beatles and somebody said they're not going to be round thirty years time nobody will know who they are and just looked at you me see people you are out of your freaking minds and that was at eleven and that didn't go down so there was a rebelliousness that I guessed I had because I loved this music so much whether it was the Beatles or Joni Mitchell or Nina Simone. Weren't we can go on. And on stevie wonder and they wouldn't allow it at the time and it seemed like wow. I was disappointment to everybody. And that was that was a lot to hold. That's the double edged sword me talking about whole where. Where did this rebelliousness come from? Because I feel like you know a lot of kids might have just said okay. This is my assignment. This is what I'm supposed to do. This is my responsibility. I have to toe the line. But here you are coming to these conclusions about your own voice and this moment in musical time at eleven like where did that street come from so being exposed to such great music just made me more bloody minded. I think to steal from the Brits and just dig my heels in say no. I'm going to write more. I'm going to I'm going to do this. Tori's father remain convinced that she was going to do it too. In fact he was kind of a stage dad and helped her secure her first paying gig at a very surprising venue each week. Thirteen year old Tori. Ammos played a downtown. Dc Gay bar called. Mr Henry's and eventually that earned Tori other piano playing spots bars and hotels around the city. Why do you think your dad though changed his mind and was like okay with you? Playing music like secular music to in a gay bar. I mean that feels like a real pivot. I think it was a pivot. I think with the capital p. I think there is a bit of Mama rose. Gypsy rose Lee Her mother in my father and there is a side to him. Wanted to Billy Graham. So he used drawn to that flame and he wouldn't give up and I don't think he could accept my my failure. He couldn't accept it. I I kind of accepted being kicked out of the peabody because I was writing my own music in secret like you guys are in closets. I'd be writing. Whatever under the bed would ever just creating and when he wasn't around really working toward that but then I think it just need decided. No I'M GONNA get on side and if you're GonNa do this then do it right and do well and be good at it. And with that the child prodigy had become a teenage to professional but before teen pro-tory could become adult POB icon contrary she. I had to learn how to fail. When we come back. Tory flops at the start pop on the charts and introduces us to Hermes says. Don't go anywhere..

"Before we go any further. I feel like I should mention that decision. Theory for the most part has been not necessarily debunked but has been replaced by something. How prospect theory prospect theory was the work of Daniel Conman? We've said his name perhaps more than any other single person on this show common and diversity Amos diversity they They essentially established this prospect theory by observing how people actually make decisions and it provides a different curve whereas decision theory is a linear model prospect. Three has a very different. Non Linear Distribution Specifically with loss aversion driving your decisions so the idea here is that In prospect theory you would be more likely to choose something that could avert loss in other words in our earlier example. It's very possible if not likely the you would choose the sure twenty dollars rather than the twenty percent chance of winning one hundred dollars or earning one hundred dollars and there's good reason for this.

"And it might be overwhelming. Sometimes and people at the label might not like your work because it's not seen as commercial but that's just not who you are and so when you're talking about being an impostor Andrea sometimes. It's not that easy to admit that you're not necessarily the one that they wanna play on the radio and it's accepting what type of artist you really are and I want WanNa talk about. What kind of artist you are. Because I have to speak on behalf of everybody listening. Who's listened to your songs and you gave us the space to figure out how to be ourselves. You know I look very conventional from the outside but inside as a little girl growing up. I felt like a massive Weirdo and I felt very lost and awkward for a very long time. And listen to your music especially cornflake girl. That was the opening for me. That slowly was the unraveling of everything conventional that. I was taught from all around me from radio to play top. Forty Jarrell radio nonstop. Corporate Radio and cornflake girl was one of those moments. I remember very vividly hearing for the first time. And saying Hey Andrea. There are other beautiful weirdoes out there in the world and you guys are. GonNa Find Each Other. And then you'll start a podcast so. I think your music is just so timeless and I would all enter Tori Amos on youtube and I'll watch videos and I'll listen to some of your music while I'm working. And then the Youtube Algorithm will pump in some other songs a recent songs not so recent songs and those songs sound you can hear how mass produced they sound and how Still they sound but then when your music comes in it sounds fresh and timeless and that staying power. That's such an interesting thing to me about as an artist like how you create work. That withstands attested time. Like where do you think that comes from it? Could you just comment on that? Well it's really a mixed or sometimes it's I have to Have conversations with the self to get out of the way and serve? Serve the muses. And how can I best do that? Well I still have to do my part.
Greatest Hits: Physician, Test Thyself
"While at the medical pneumatic institute of Bristol in the seventeen ninety s Humphry Davy studied gases studied by inhaling. The today's theme was still in any way unclear. Devi would set up chemical reactions and then inhale the resulting gas one gas gave him a pleasant sensation and the impulse to laugh at everything he had discovered. Nitrous oxide though. His initial attempts were meant to reproduce the pleasurable effects of opium and alcohol. Davey would ultimately recommend the use of nitrous oxide as an anesthetic. Your dentist gives you a blend of fifty percent nitrous and fifty percent oxygen but devi was huffing hundred percent nitrous oxide which is probably why he enjoyed it enough to start hosting parties. Were friends would inhale it from silk bags when it came time to test his polio vaccine. Dr Jonas Salk decided to avoid the long drawn out. Human clinical trial process the only suitable tests subject was himself and his family in nineteen forty seven. Salt was working on a vaccine for the crippling disease. While at the University of Pittsburgh he needed a healthy volunteer to test it and administered it to himself his wife and their three sons. It worked and was soon implemented in a nationwide test that showed dramatic results in two years. Polio cases decreased from twenty nine thousand to less than six thousand salk didn't patent the vaccine in assisted that it should remain free and available to everyone saying. Could you patent the Sun as a result? He's often remembered. As one of history's great humanitarian. Since Dr Olivier Immune System was a brilliant cardiologists zone practice in the second half of the twentieth century when he developed a life hindering addiction to alcohol fearing for his life. He immersed himself in a rehab therapy but nothing worked so he did the only thing he felt he could. He took his treatments into his own hands. Searching For a cure he happened upon back. Lafon a muscle relaxant. That had been used for years but it shown promising results in studies with laboratory animals addicted to a variety of substances Doctor Amos in prescribe himself the drug and experimented with increasingly higher doses until he finally reached a level that left him free of any craving for alcohol. He published his results in two thousand and four which a team of Italian scientists tested with promising results in two thousand eight Werner forsman was German urologist who during his surgical training in nineteen twenty. One pioneered the technique of cardiac catheterization the inserting a catheter into the heart. To measure the pressure inside and decide whether a patient needs surgery building on the work of scientists who has successfully catheterization a horse in eighteen sixty one force was inspired to try to replicate that work in humans but couldn't get permission for human trials of such a dangerous sounding experiment undeterred. He asked an operating room nurse to procure the necessary equipment. She agreed but only on the noble condition that he experimented on her rather than trying to do it to himself. No sooner was she prepped. On the table than foresman anesthetize his own arm and made a cut inserting the catheter. Twelve inches or thirty centimeters into his name. He then casually climbed two flights of stairs to the X. Ray Sweet before threading it all the way into his heart and having an x ray done to check the placement.

Notice that when an internal organ was damaged patient sometimes felt pain in unconnected parts of their body. They decided to deliberately damaged one of their own internal organs to study the effects. But what internal organ did they have? That was both critical and easily damaged.

"Most of us get sad depressed when things get tough and it's considered a normal reaction today. We're going to talk about what's considered the abnormal response to life's problems. What my first guess calls Super Joy in fact? That's the title of Doctor. Paul Pierce Cells Book. It's called Super Joy. He says it. Modern psychology has really done us a disservice by encouraging us to adapt and handle stress to work hard. Achieve our goals. What's missing he says is our ability to experience just plain unadulterated joy about life. My next guest has what has to be one of the simplest outlooks on life that any grown man could have book is called. All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten. Robert Fulcrum says all this talk about the examined. Life and self actualization might be fine for some folks but all he really needs to know he learned in kindergarten. My next guest put the lessons. He's learned about getting the most out of life. Call the power in you. We know him from his famous Amos chocolate chip cookies and now while Amos reveals the personal struggles that he's endured and the attitudes it helped him find inner strength. Welcome my guests take each book at a time? One two three three six. And then we'll all talk okay sure First of all super joy is about us not being able to or adjusting to stress in a way that we should rather than doing what psychologists have told us over. The years is normal working with patients for seventeen years. We learned something very early. That psychology and psychiatry has focused on the sick or the absence of symptoms. It hasn't focused on those people who celebrated every day who were very very healthy. We learned that being normal is very dangerous to your health. Very your passed a man on on the road the other day and he's driving this big Mercedes car with motivational tapes. Probably playing in his ear talking about his car phone. Probably on the way to a meditation class to learn to relax. We work harder than that. Shea. And he's commended for this. So what therapists have become. At least in my estimation in our research is really like lifeguards by a big river. People fall this river. They almost drowned. We pluck them out. Resuscitate them and throw them back in. We don't ask. Maybe that rivers running too fast. Maybe there's something more to life than we're doing right now. So you studied people who have the the joy response naturally and there about twenty percent of the population twenty percent. You see for example if you go to a picnic and eat bad foods spoiled potato salad. Eighty percent of the people get sick but twenty percent of those people tend to not get sick by the study those people. Why don't they? And the reason I started to look at those healthy people who don't seem to to jog but stay healthy. Eat fiver turned into a brick. They help in any way and what it was was very obvious. They had broken stress addiction. They weren't addicted to that stress anymore. They were free and what really drove the message. Home was the first woman I interviewed. Seventeen years ago a survivor of the Holocaust and I saw her in the hospital with a very non serious illness and she was smiling. They wanted her out of the hospital because she kept singing and laughing and bothering all of the rest of the patient so I went to see her. She had the tattoo on her wrist. That terrible tattoo and I said all my word look at that and she said you like my birth mark. I said that's a death mark. Isn't it she said the day they stamped that on me? I knew they weren't going to kill me now. Why did she have? That was my interest in writing Super Joy. I wanted to know why some people survive anyway. Why can they be so abnormal? Why aren't they quotes well adjusted? Why are they weird enough? Like some of the people here and my esteemed colleagues to break away from the system. That's what they've done. And so you talk about that too and all I need to know learned in kindergarten. You talk about the Good Samaritan Story and how that affected the guy who who was stopped by the Good Samaritan details about that absolutely but the bottom line of this whole discussion has to do with the fact that whatever it is that we're all looking for it is not something that you have to go out there and get it is something that you have and something that you give away and in the context of that your life is meaningful. That's the biggest distinction. I find between the people who are suffering from stress in those who are not you. You're talking about the Jewish story of the Holocaust. One time. I was working as a cowboy and a dude ranch in the night manager of this was a guy who'd been through Auschwitz and I was complaining terribly bitterly about the fact that three days in a row. We'd head weenies and Sauerkraut for lunch. Quit he said listen to me. Says you break your neck? You got a problem you go to rush Mitch. The problem all the rest of inconvenience you got to figure out the difference between inconvenience and problems. Yeah and the point of the Good Samaritan story did the man who was helped by the Good Samaritan was grateful that he was helped or did he complain about all the other people who passed and did not help him well. We've been puzzling. That went out for a long. And you see the answer to that in terms of what you project onto it rather than what the story actually tells you it's very interesting you're talking about Auschwitz. Because I went to see Mississippi Burning. Went to see it with some friends who came out saying This makes me really hate white people and I said you know does the exact opposite to me. I look at that film and I look at our history black people in this country and I think of what other black people have sacrificed in order for me to be where I am and I just WanNa make what I have better so that their legacy would not be legacy lived in vain instead of carrying the bitterness.

Aw that allows you to listen to your inner being in here the desire and when you and through repetition and repeating goal to yourself you build the desire within because when you I admit it you probably don't believe you can do and so if we take a different approach and we have you in your mind focus on the goal not your current circumstance and not the evidence that comes in each day because if we do that we're in that same cycle but imagine if you how the goal in your mind and then that dictates the thoughts that you think and then the thoughts dictate how you feel.
