Who Was Warlord Vortigern?

"Island of great britain was originally an island that was inhabited by celtic peoples. It was later occupied by roman became a roman province yet. The people who live on the island didn't end up speaking a celtic or romance language. They ended up speaking a language that belong to the germanic family of languages. The following story. A might have had something to do with how that happened. More on that in a bit the events in question date back to the late fifth century. This is a period of british history. That has some major holes. The roman empire had collapsed and nothing had really risen to take its place. There are many warlords and kings who vied for power. This was the period of time. When according to legend king arthur would have ruled so pretty much everything from this period is kind of questionable one of the rulers at that time was a warlord named voter turn. He was the leader of the britons in the wake of the roman collapse from what accounts we are told. He got to his position via a lot of duplicity and skulduggery supposedly. He had worked his way into a position of influence with the romans took advantage of that to usurp the throne the to rightful heirs. Were a pair of young brothers named or really ascend brosius and author and they were sent overseas for their education ford gern. Having assumed the throne had a hard time holding onto power he was constantly dealing with incursions from the picks and the scots and the north he was also dealing with the potential of an armada joining the two brothers to take back the throne. his solution to deal with. These problems was to hire mercenaries. Hiring mercenaries wasn't necessarily a bad idea it had been done throughout history with various levels of success. Forty gern contract out the work to to saxon brothers by the name of hen. Gist and horsa. They would bring in dramatic mercenaries to fight off the picks and the scots on behalf of the britain king in exchange for their services voltigeur offered this accents.

I would not i tell you in an email but i wouldn't tell you on the air but this book is atheism dead is fantastic and i wanted to describe it to people. I purposely took this book with me.

An orderly universe couldn't exist certainly advanced life and then human conscious life. None of these things can be explained by the quaint victorian nineteenth century superstition of random chance. Darwinism and survival.

"So. I've got a theory that i'm going to drop her an idea and the only way that i can kind of spin this right now is just an idea from author mind. Meaning how. I would pen the fiction if i was taking this story and wanted to write. Write the book Right the write the script. And where would i go with it because the question is you know. Whereas she but was brian. Also the creepy man that was You know basically the there's a couple unit probably know about it. That was murdered in their bodies were found in august eighteenth female couple and they had said that. There's a creepy man who intimidated them and or they felt intimidated by. And that's pretty much. What what it was before. Their bodies were found and we know that on august twelfth. That is the time where they had left. The co-op brian and gabby and that's where the body cam footage that you're seeing with the cops. We also know about two days later. That female couple near moab at a campsite like a remote Place was Was killed and it was later revealed that it was multiple gunshots to the back to the side and their bodies. Of course we're found agassi eighteenth but there is record of one of them saying At least one of them saying that there was a creepy man quotes and that they felt intimidated quotes by that at now. The question is what cops are even saying. Right now is they're they're not eliminating that. Brian is a suspect not. He's a person of interest in the disappearance in the mercy missing persons cases of Gabby right now. but they're not saying That these two cases aren't you know possibly linked and my idea from the fiction Fish inside and not what. I'm actually saying that he did. But if i were to pen the fiction it would be that yeah. He is the creepy man near that campsite that he and the girlfriend made it to a campsite close by and when this guy started to rage and basically his relationship is unraveling is becoming not what it is seen on video but really unhappy that that the girlfriend is the one person for him and she feels the same way. There's a break-up something like that. But when he goes off wandering he sees a happy couple he sees a happy couple and these were newlyweds to female couple and he just rages over that fact because that's something that he can't get he wants and he can't convince the girl who's been his girlfriend for a couple years and now when they're enclosed quarters in the van things are different than what they are in the wide open space any

Gen. Mark Milley to Nancy Pelosi: 'I Agree With You on Everything'

"Mike gallagher. Maranda devine weighs in on the general milley thing in the new york post and so honestly if you're radio interviews generals who say well. It's not that big a deal. I mean generals talked to generals all the time you know. I talked yesterday about nancy. Pelosi is involved and that's what she dives into let me quote from her article. I mean journal. Mark milley became so deranged that he cast himself allegedly as the hero of a seven days in may style fever dream in only he could save the nation from trump trump launching nuclear war with china to stay in office. It's an insane scenario. Left wing equivalent of the most far-fetched cunanan conspiracies. She writes but this is what is claimed in. The woodward cost of book entitled peril show alarmed was the tightly wound. General about what he imagined. Trump might do that. He made secret calls his counterpart in china. Promising to warn them if the president ordered an attack. It's clear that milly or people authorized by him leaked details of his delusional daring due to a number of authors. Because he's proud of his actions. His lack of shane bodes ill for the country if he remains the nation's highest ranking military officer as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff the botched withdrawal of troops from afghanistan over which he presided was bad enough. She writes what's next and the most disturbing part she writes of the mili- story is nancy. Pelosi's malign influence. The general seem to treat her as his commander in chief pelosi who was engaged in a blood feud with trump that sent her batty manipulated and bullied. Milly a transcript of a call with pelosi two days after the january six capital riot obtained by the payroll authors has her ranting at about trump's access to nuclear weapons pelosi said if they couldn't even stop him from an assault on the capital who even knows what else he may do and is there anybody in charge of the white house who is doing anything but kissing his fat but all over this.

Acquired by octa tell me about a brief history of authorizations at service absolutely saw its start with you need to ease the disentangle authentication authorization to very similar. Sounding names often lumped together as just off and there's often a very blurry line between those which piece of the puzzle different people are doing and even goes as far as with the name authorization useful indication and things like that. So i think we think about companies like zero. You know quite a lot of the stuff they focused on is primarily the identity piece the authentication piece right so authentication. It's brown identifying who the user is a few are checking some kind of credentials piece of thing authorization often the piece it comes off to. It's like now. I know you are.

They may be handled things like you know groups all maybe it's like pulling a few attributes out of the idc providers you kind of get some sense of who this person is.

Well listen you. You wrote a book called debunking howard zinn exposing the fake history that turned generation against america. It's devastating stuff. I mean let's start there. Who are these people that obviously you know for lack of a better verb hate america. Why are they putting forward narratives. That are not only pernicious but are actually false. There's no question that howard johnson's version of america and the six thousand nineteen projects version america. This is complete nonsense being pedal as though it were true. Why do these people want to destroy the greatest nation in the history of the world. Well i think they have some personal resentment of howard. Zinn nicole hannah jones. Who is the creator of sixteen. Nineteen project have slightly different. Motivations both are promoting a kind of neo marxist version of history howard zinn of course was a one time member of the communist party and his allegiance was to communism and he hated this country and he hoped to foment a communist revolution.

The black side of famish used biracial believes that this country has not treated her fairly and she believes in off. The fidel castro's cuba. She praises that regime. She she took a trip there and her politics are aligned with the squad of the democratic party. The far left. She wants to see a redistribution of wealth. She wants socialized healthcare.

Religion & Divorce With Author Amy Pettyjohn

"So one of the common questions that i receive. I think i get a message or to every single week from particularly a woman who says that she is in this really unhealthy relationship but it goes against everything that she was raised to believe about marriage. In that a lot of times i even here like there's family members who were in ministry and have just you know said that bill shun her if she gets a divorce. So let's just i kick it off and if you can share like your own religious background and what role it played in the decision that you made sure and i relate so much to those kind of messages because that was me. I was raised to believe that the worst is never an auction. Never an option and that god heat sports and so when i got into a marriage full of just sexual immorality and lies in i just felt stocker felt like there was still no way out because versus never option and so i stayed for a really long time and i just stuck there and so it took me a long time to get to a point of understanding. God's love means for me and grace and mercy and what the bible really says about marriage and divorce and that there is a way out of fat and so it took me while to get here. But once i got here and i really aged discovered. God's grace infirmity loves me doesn't want me to be a maximum of situation able to have that freedom. Did you have any external pressures trying to talk you out of getting a divorce. Oh absolutely yes you know. It's funny when you're in a church situation. You can be an addict alcohol. But you can't have problems in your marriage and interpret and that happens so often so there's really nowhere to go so you kind of keep a lot of things secret anytime keep you know what's happening in your marriage to yourself but also when i did start talking about divorce absolutely there was some pressure and i know my parents show kathy talking about this by parents. Were big part of that pressure. Being wanted me to stay. When the day i filed for divorce got a phone call from them and it will and it's just as hard.

Author Sabrina Strings on the Racial Origins of Fat Phobia

"To the podcast. Sabrina thank you on so excited to have you so tell us about how you started to explore issues of body image and wait specifically for women of color while this is actually almost like a family legacy for me. My grandmother was born in rural georgia during the late nineteen thirties and so she was growing up the jim crow era and lived in a racially segregated community as part of the great migration in nineteen sixty. She traveled west and at that time for the first time in her life she lived and worked around white women and she was amazed by the number of white women diets. Seems like what is this. You know sort of like a typical black grandmother fashioned. By the time. I came of age in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s. When i was in high school she was still troubling over. This question like what is going on here. She would even ask me like why women dying to be thin. And i was like sixteen years old but it wasn't until about ten years later when i was working in a predominantly black community in san francisco baby hunters points. I met women of color who were hiv positive. And we're attaining an hiv medication adherence clinic where i was a researcher who refuse to take their medications for fear of gaining weight. And i thought oh. Wow you know this. What was clearly a phenomenon that was mostly about middle class white women in the nineteen sixties arguably even through the ninety s. Clearly by the early dots was something. That was impacting women of color as well so i wanted to be able to dig further into this question of why is it so important for women of all racial ethnic backgrounds at this point to feel like they need to discipline themselves and maintain a particular.

The Pros and Cons of Soya Beans

"The only time to my knowledge that i've ever eaten a soybean in soybean form is at amami those green pods you get as a starter at sushi restaurants which i love so young soybeans which is what mommy is is generally esteemed but once you actually had the mature bean and then you try to cook it. The results tend to be less than appetizing. Gen fu is a professor at emory university. Who studies the history of science technology and medicine in china. And she's the author of the other milk. She published under jetson but she goes by wendy her everyday life. So that's what we're going to call her. This episode wendy told us that the soybean was likely domesticated in what's now northeastern china. Right on the border with korea wild soybeans and then domesticated soybeans. They're not particularly high maintenance. They grow well in a lot of different regions and their beans which are in general. A good thing to and so people ate a lot of them. It isn't early crowd that is recognized and becomes part of what is known as the classical grains. so we know that soybean is not actually green but it was treated as sort of staple food similar to weet As well as rice it was a staple yes but it was only a staple out of necessity. Like wendy said. The mature soybean has some issues more so even than many of its fellow colleagues. It causes pretty intense gas innocent flatulence and even though like all means it's packed with protein. It also contains a chemical that means our bodies kant really process that protein but there is a way around the protein blocking problem and at least a little of the flatulence problem and that is to boil the crap out of mature

When It Comes to Business, Ignore the Real World

"Reworked book with a look at the essay entitled ignore the real world this goes into that common trope that new ideas are bound to fail or that these things may work for a company like base camp but would never work for company x. and as always i'm joined by base camp co-founders and the authors of rework david meyer hanson. Welcome thank you and jason freed. Welcome sean. I've noticed in a lot of these essays. Start with something along the lines of you always hear someone has said xyz and in this case the quote you use is that idea would never work in the real world is still something that that you find pretty prevalent yet. But that's the that's the standard rebuttal. I still is or or or there's a variation of it which is like that would never work for us. That would never work in our company and so that would never work in. The real world is kind of a catchall for all those variations on that rebuttal. But yeah we still hear that. I think what's interesting is that One of the things we heard up until a year ago is that remote work would never work here or there or everywhere. Feel like dr seuss thing there. But what's nice is that that myth was busted obviously know during difficult circumstances but everyone had it was forced to basically work remotely and it it works. Now it's hard in some ways and some people didn't do quite right and there's all their challenges that come up and there's isolation's all that stuff but at least like the real world in that case was forced to reckon with a situation that what were the real world had to give for second people had to try something new it worked so i think anytime you can bust a myth or sort of for someone to try. Something they believe is impossible is a good is a good time was a good moment. And that's what we just had happened of the past year or so. I think the other

That i talk about those things openly too because i never really dealt with anxiety but with depression series depression because you want people to know lots of people deal with this stuff and it's really hard but one thing you have on your list that you deal with a battle to deal with consumer impulses kind of like worrying about what other people think. I think a lot of people who they look like. Oh that's really wonderful christian person and they must have everything going on fine but if they're dealing with what what other people think too much You don't really notice it if they're dealing with consumer impulses people go on. That's just that's normal. We all shop. Or why did you list that here. And how do you. What do you mean by that. Because i do think. That's like one of those things where we can be released secretly and unconsciously. It's not like we're overtly sinning but in our hearts were giving something over that belongs to god in the end. These are all coping mechanisms. I believe that mask pain and so we're just looking for something that will give us that quick fix where we're a little less sad or a little less depressed or a little less anxious and so i come at this topic with a lot of compassion because so many people are in these categories. I mean we all have had life kinda thrown at us that looks different than because as a result of fall. That's just that's just the truth. And so the acceptance of that still comes back to going. Am i trying to numb out. Am i trying to escape through whatever that coping mechanism looks like you could call it. Consumer impulses are just like shopping online. It could be a netflix binge. It could be just too much wine. It could be anything and it's more going. What are we. What are we reaching to to numb out or to escape versus coming to god and going god.

I think i don't know if it was the new york times or or or wherever that you don't believe there is racism in america. Yeah well of course i. I've never said anything. Of course is is what. I've challenged that business about whether they're systemic racist The idea that the police are pulling people over in using voice against white people just because they're black that's been re the study. It's nonsense is what the left does to divide america to scare black people because they convinced a large number of black people. Dennis of that social justice is the primary issue in america. Not quality of schools not crime. Not where the nacho able to get a job and so they do this because they want to try and get that monolithic lactoferrin which they cannot survive at the presidential level.

Surrendering Your Anxiety to God With Author Rebekah Lyons

"When you say that anxiety for you comes from i mean these sounds like cliches because you hear this but it's obviously true. We all deal with the stuff one way or the other and it has to do with. Were living outside of god's plan right. God says be anxious for nothing. Bring me your problems. But don't get anxious and stuff but a lot of people think like being anxious almost like virtue instead of a sin they kind of act like well anxious because i care but scriptures says no. There's there's another way that to me is what you're surrendered. Yes sounds like is that basically. Yeah yeah because we can white knuckle and really that just becomes control. 'cause control is the opposite of surrender right like we're trying to take matters back into our own hands. We're trying to fight against maybe the sadness or the longing Maybe the disappointment and yet choosing instead release those things to god and go god. I just asked that you'd heal my broken heart right a heel. The fact that. I'm that things didn't turn out the way. I thought they wouldn't help me. Choose to actually accept that so that that can be a that pain can actually become purpose because the thing is is all of us are suffering from some thing. That doesn't look the way we planned. It and kobe is a great example of that on a global scale and so our our response is about okay. There are agency there is agency we do have when we win and be give these things back to god and we trust him ago. What little corner of the world that. I live in kenai fx change through hope. Because when you think about it in scripture it says suffering produces character character produces faith and faith produces hope and so in the end even the life looked exactly like we thought we still get the opportunity to share hope. And i think that's been the journey for me of i can push against anxiety. I can fight it I can try to control it. And control is just masking. Fear or i can open my hands to god. I can surrender and release these things back to me back to him. Excuse me and like you said when he says be anxious for nothing he gives us a tool right in that verse how to be anxious for nothing. It's not just stopping anxious right. If we could we would do that. But he's saying with prayer and petition with thanksgiving. Give me your request and my peace will flood your

A that was your your you know battle buddies while you're over there And so be a great contributor to society And that's something. I think a lot of people are afraid to touch. So yeah and i'm sad. That was your experience. But i i know too well that that's that's a fairly universal experience. Can you tell us about some of the services that you offer and then also how. What can you do to support military veterans more. That's fantastic so one of the main things that i did was. I taught people how to resume. Because when you're in the mass area you don't very yes thank you And that was something that i noticed that like when you know when your job has been you know going in front of like the the board to get a promotion. It's a area different things to Trying to talk yourself up and also inside the military culture. There's this whole idea of humility right that they did you. Don't build yourself up verbally. You let your actions speak for you. Better excetera so. I think that A lot of people were intimidated or are intimidated by you. Know the mere act of putting down your skills or knowing which ones translate because it's a billion world as well and which one to highlight which ones to learn how to craft A resume and cover letter for specific job. I think that's another thing that was a really big aspect of a lot of soldiers. I i asked them. Like what. Can i do not something. I think that if you have a military person in your life Something that got helped them right there. Resume especially if you're good at it. 'cause everybody needs the resume for any kind of Any kind of job really and it's something that most military people. I don't know why they don't teach it In their What's it called right when you leave the army the like coming up every wrong word or when you leave the military called you interview.

What inspired you to start battle buddy so in two thousand nine. I went to mozell iraq. Which was the red zone at the time and I went out to You know or you like uso where and i work at the morale welfare and recreation centers And while i was out there. I was supposed to only for two months and my father was actually out there as well. He was running A security team For base in iraq and when he decided to leave. I was supposed to leave with him. And that was two months then and i realized that you know because we were on the front line and we we were subject to daily attacks and bombings on our basic cetera. That there was really no one willing to come out and run any kind of reprieve for the men and women that are serving In iraq. And so i decided to stay for seven months instead of two and Yeah i got a organize concerts and throw barbecues and i taught acting classes. I mean pretty much. Anything to try to distraction From the fact that you know we were getting shot at and bombed every day. So when i got home from iraq I had a very deep need to help. These people who you know came from all different walks of life But all had a common experience and that was an experience that i personally have even had You know the realization that most most people who have experienced that are very intimidated by and or they don't really understand it all and when you are leaving that kind of a situation and trying to reintegrate into society..

I know what i'm talking about when i have my my topics and i know what i'm engaging with these people about You know it definitely helps A met sure how to ask this question. Because it's it's an now. It's not that it's a personal question or anything it's I'm not. i'm not an author. So i'm not really sure how to kind of keep fraser. That conflict is important in any novel. Any story i've got a guy on an i've read his book and it's it's celebrated book within a certain within his field of Entertainment he's written of about the life of a certain antonina and it's been very much celebrated as such a great book By the everybody. Who's in this trying to be coy. Because i don't wanna hours ago But it celebrated great book. And i when i read it. I thought it was a great book. And now i'm re listening to the audio book as i drive and i'm thinking there's absolutely no conflict in this. What makes it a great book. Kenya have a great story without conflicts. On looking for where it is how important and how soon do you need to. Obviously it's important right do you. Do you work more on developing the character or letting the audience know the cat or do you start with conflict right away. It's something that makes me curious about the writing process so for for me and this is again probably different for for every author. Maybe every story that that those authors write from me the exploration of character Which tends to be where. I start even if you know by the end of all the revisions. The book doesn't start there. The exploration of character is where i find the conflict In a lot of might work the conflict is sort of rooted internally within the character though you know. Obviously there's like epic nicer battles and and you know magic god powers and stuff. There's there's physical conflict and and all of that but the crux of the story..

And and i choose all the little images And because they're all images of women in the workplace or other things that that feature in the book so in this novel you not only have a cast the also the ferrets and so if you look microscopically some of images in the in the book cover it. You'll have the occasional ferrets as well so it's like a mosaic made up of of images of of workplace and things that happened in the book but then that gets turned into this big.

"Events they tend to have commuter toss they're outside of the regular world. Have this social leveling of the of the power hierarchy but they can occur at any time. They tend to be things that you purchase away into like a concert like burning man I'd love to do a flash back in a flash forward or flashed present perhaps. In the process of doing homework this conversation came across a phrase I'd never come across before and that is kiss off money. Oh as it relates to fight club, could you please explain what this means and how it relates to Fight Club I am I have such misgivings about ever having mentioned this. Really. Hurt my editors feelings. Years ago when fight club was being shopped around as a manuscript, there was this really brave Guy Jerry Howard at WWe Norton. And Jerry wanted to acquire the book for Norton so bad. and. Finally got northern to offer six thousand dollars on it. Which? He brought to me and I was thrilled. I had no idea that six thousand dollars was a really small advance. And then years later I mentioned it to another Norton author and she said Oh, you accepted the fuck you money. And I said, you know what's that and she said if the House. Does not want to acquire a book, but they don't want to alienate the editor who wants to acquire the book. They offering advance so low. That the author is supposed to say fuck you and walk away. And I had no idea I was young I'd never done this before I was working at freightliner. So I just took the money. But then I made the mistake of repeating what this other author had told me. And became part of the public record and. Ultimately, hurt the feelings of the editor who had acquired. You know the money for me but. You know that's kind of what is known is is. Politely. It's known as kiss, off money. I got the Disney version people at least people of my generation certainly think of fight club as this cultural mainstay, I mean this real..

"Then you could spend weeks months years mastering the by Me State of surfing but every person who's passionate about surfing that I've ever talked to said they were getting really skilled. They were they could really master the principles and then one day they forgot about all the principles. It was just them. They're board and the water they had an experience and people however they say this that surfing was happening through me or musician's say all of a sudden music was coming through me or or you know people who innovate they say. That idea. I just kind of let go and something came through me. So everybody's got a feel for this. Sometimes you know it's kind of what flow state is like. I'll never forget being in Chicago. Michael Jordan makes seven threes in a row or whatever runs down the core kind of throws up. His hands looks at the crowd. Looks at the announcers like even I'd argue. The greatest basketball player played arguable. But my story. This is happening through me. This is wild shit. I'm just showing up so we've all had that experience and to me. That's when leaders start dancing there. It's incredible what comes forward into the world and then the fourth state is as me it's non to it's one. It's it's the blurring of a personal self even though there is a personal self. It's being fully human but being in the dance of being so now we move over and all the traditions whether it's Buddhism or Hinduism or Islam or Christianity or non. A religious spirituality. They all have a version of this idea of becoming what now we could go back over into your world. I'm a baby in this world of medicine journeys but I've only done four as I talked to you once before but I got involved because I many reasons but one of the things. I had have happen. Very quickly was the dissolution of separate south and and this experience of. Oh my God small G. so there's many things that those medicines are bringing to the world. You being an expert at proponent but just as a newbie like an instant portal through to as me the good and the bad that terror and the bliss the you know the whole deal so those are the four states to me by me through me asked me and in my experience we go in and out of them all the time so when you and I are technical difficulties partway through our call. And you couldn't hear me I immediately contracted into into to me Shit what did I do? I took my earphones on. I put it back in. I'm not very technically savvy. I thought this up. Oh God what am I doing? I can hear you saying Jim. I'm talking but I can't hear you go. God what do I do what I do took me at the effect of me and the technology then I go wait a minute take a breath take a breath and I go. This is okay I can learn from here. What could I play with? What can I do so just a breath shifting to buy me access? Iq Ego Bq. And then you and I start dancing and we go where we could do this. We shift over to this platform. We don't need to be reactively. We don't need to be contracted in fear to me by me through me as being dancing all the time. So that's a model that I love. Love love teams to map really well to all of life. Whatever the content is whether it's the weather or the virus or the technology breaking down when you and I were talking I always ask myself. Where am I am I into me by me through mirror ask me? And my context is under my control. The content never is. Thank you for explaining that. There's a lot to unpack. We could unpack each one of those for for many hours. One of our mutual friends is a fan of what most people would consider bad weather and He he also trained trained sounds too much like a dog in a Kennel but he sort of has cultivated this this belief in his kids and I can't recall the proper attribution of this quote. But there's there's no such thing as bad weather just inappropriate clothing and the really celebrate what most people would complain about and Just as a quick aside. I was going for a hike with my girlfriend. My dog recently just a very very basic neighborhood hike. Nothing nothing to Alpine and we got caught in this torrential downpour torrential downpour and perhaps a month ago or two months ago that would have bothered me on some level and it ended up just being this. We reframed it really quickly and been holed up at home so much in the last few weeks it was just the greatest gift we could have imagined we we had hoods. We took down our heads just poured on as we're walking home on the street or waving to these cars with these huge shitting grinner faces a. It's it's really easy. I succumb to this all the time to fall into a to me. The this is happening to me as opposed to buy me or for me right in this case who was a former like no is something that's happening for me not to me and he really changes things and I would love you. You volunteered and I appreciate you volunteering background in terms of your childhood and suffice to say a lot of people are suffering right now. Feeling suffering whether and legitimately so many people are facing extremely difficult circumstances. But if we're if we take just as a frame for discussion the the military expression your pain is inevitable suffering is optional. In the sense that you can reframe these things. You will have twists fortune. That caused great difficulty. I'd love to visit perhaps at a difficult time in in your life and I've heard you describe this than I won't say much more but as the descent to the ashes. Could you talk about where that comes from? And your own descent to the ashes and how you got through that Yeah happily so if I go back to you know. I've always had this can my chest and I've always thought for relationship. The first place I looked was to Christianity because I heard Jesus whatever like Jesus make this ridiculous claim that you could have peace that passes understanding and then the version of Christianity. I got involved in simple. Now it's greatly oversimplified process by which you can do that so for the first time I was fifteen until I was forty. My practice was around Christianity. That's where my meditation started and my practice became my career my advanced degrees in theology and then I became a minister and fast forward all the way to forty three years old. A Minister of the largest church in the United States. So you know talking to thousands of people a week in this complex system of church. So now I'm right smack DAB in the midst of Midlife and I realize that my life is not working. Now specifically the faith that I've been devoted to I wasn't casual about it wasn't producing the results that it looked like it should produce love joy peace instead. I was getting further away from the things that I was seeking so I quit. You know in that world kind of near the pinnacle of my career path if you will climb the ladder right literally and found a ladder leaning against the wrong wall so I quit and I started this journey. I started this journey to find same thing relief peace and what our relationships like and that journey took me to some of these teachers that were talking about and then like I said once I found these teachers I came back and brought it to be by become a private practice counselor at that point and another friend of mine and I started a men's groups largely just doing I've just given to others what I needed for myself men and Midlife figuring out what the hell does it mean to be a fully alive human and so we started. Doing you know all the stuff that men would do. You know you go into the woods and we would you know. Be Trump's new all that stuff the men's movement in the seventies and eighties which I think there was a lot of beauty to that paralleled the women's movement and it got messy and this church that had been part of which goes largest church in the United States was still selling tapes that I'd get talks given all over the world. They got wind out in the woods. You know we'd have men move their anger so they'd Yell Shit Hell Damn Faulk.

"My mind she is a transmitter of liberation and freedom with an unbelievable Lee simple way to get at it now. Simple and profound in that. You know it's not it's like so many of these things it simple and transformationally profound. If you do the work like she says all the time you know you work the work till it works you. So I started with Byron Katie years ago and Madge and Jim for one seconds so I'd love to expand on that just for a second for people who haven't had exposure to Byron Katie before in an example like that and for those people who are listening to this later and hopefully this context is needed sooner rather than later but the concern about the hospitals related to to SARS Cov two and cove nineteen is the objective in that example to down regulate your system. So that you can make a calmer decision about what needs to be done or not done in the sense that. I could imagine people some people listening thinking while you should be looking for alternatives. That's a legitimate concern. So you don't want to dismiss it and would this exercise not lead you to specify? Does that make sense and Susa? I'd love to hear how it's an enabling tool or a tool that makes you more hesitate uses word but affective instead of complacent does that. Does that make sense? And this is actually comes up a fair amount with some of Byron Katie's techniques which can be extremely powerful. I mean I've seen people reframe the death of a parent in ways that completely changed their lives in fifteen or twenty minutes in the sense that they might take a phrase right like she doesn't need to go to the hospital in then rephrase it as Byron Katie does or she does need to go to the hospital. I need to go to the hospital. I and so on and so forth and look for evidence or be forced to give evidence for each of those Conjugated statements which is something else. So I don't WanNa take us off topic but how would you speak to the fear that someone listening to this example thinks it would just make you complacent and that you should in fact consider other options? Yeah great so let me start up late like at the highest level and then I'm GonNa come down to the incredibly practical level of my experience. So at the highest level I think what Katie is she is called is going at is the possibility of freedom the possibility of truly being free from being trapped in and suffering at the effect of the separation of the mind and all the suffering. That comes there so now if you go if you drop Donald Yes. One of the outcomes is down regulating the system. So what we're looking at here is doing a practice like this allows me to become present fully present so so many definitions of consciousness so many wonderful ones. We use a very practical one. It's just the ability to be here now in a non triggered non-reactive way so that I can think better relate better and have better intuitive information. So be here now. Non Non triggered non-reactive way. So that I can have better. Iq Think E. Q. Emotional intelligence and BQ BODY INDULGENT. Better instinctual intuitive knowledge. So all that to say it's misunderstood and misused when people use it as I liked the term like a spiritual bypass I mean. The reality is that at least when the morning started. My daughter is going to go to the hospital and get an extra. That's the plan that's really happening. At least it appears to be happening. We'll see because she hasn't gone yet. So from this activated place or in our language we use the simple term from below the line triggered reactive a contracted and threatened fear. There's a limited amount of capacity for decision-making for innovation for problem solving so. Katie's work to your point down regulates. It doesn't allow me to bypass reality and just kind of sit in a Disengage demotivated kind of you know way. It actually frees me to be totally available to. What are the possibilities? That I wouldn't otherwise see because of the contraction and constrain of my activated thinking that is the exact purpose so after I did the work I called my daughter and first and foremost was able to be present with her and then I'm living in. What is it that wants to happen here and You know just chatting of humans before we even started. You had a couple of ideas that came and became possibilities. That weren't possibilities before so it isn't to be naive. It isn't to be complacent. I find that people who are more present are less. Complacent complacency is one of the Actual effects of not being fully president tonight escape move but people who are fully present are everything but complacent there. They have all energy available and at rest for action that needs to be taken. That's a big statement. But does that get a little bit at what you're pointing at him? Oh totally does and and I. I think you described it very well. It's something that I struggled with. Even the beginning with meditation I I and many of my friends also were afraid of losing their edge. That was the phrase that was used most often and my experience has been that many of these tools these modalities. Don't 'cause you lose your edge although I'm sure that you there are many ways to become complacent but they do in effect help you to turn down the volume of static so that you can hear the signal and the various types of signals so I I absolutely agree and I think that the the the underscoring of complacency as an example of non presence is very important Could we also talk to and this won't just be a list of influences but I do think that it's helpful to give a few examples. Gay Hendricks WHO's Gay Hendricks? And maybe you could speak to sort of his audacious claims or claim and run it through the same framework as you did with Katie. If you will beautiful I if it's okay I just want to go back and grab one thread for a moment about splits. Complacency one of the things I've in myself and then others that I talked to. Is that actually when somebody starts to do something like meditation or the work by Byron Katie or these other modalities? There is often not always but often a period where something that looks like complacency does emerge and I think many reasons for that but one of them is that a Latin not all but a lot of high performers are motivated by some sort of fear at the core of their being and that and that motivation has served them very very well the fear of loss of approval or control or security like a primal instinctual thing and a lot of the most achievement oriented successful. People have a large engine of fear sitting in there. So when you start dealing with that one of the things that they're going to face is if I'm not motivated either consciously or unconsciously by the things that have motivated whether it's fear or extras occur ward or things like that. What am I going to be motivated by? And I think that is a really important question for people to explore and discuss and in my experience other forms of motivation come online like creativity. Like playfulness like love. There's a whole set of motivations that are actually incredibly powerful and don't leave much of a toxic residue like fear or guilt or shame does but there is sometimes a gap. So when I'm talking to people and say listen if you're going to start to do some of these things and unwind some of core motivations. We're going to need anticipate that there might be a period where you're going to be a no-man's-land and you're GonNa go holy Shit I've lost my Mojo. Yeah and then it's can. We trust that something else is going to emerge which will be equally if not even more motivational and leave less toxic residue personally and relationship. So I just want to say that before I talk about gave no I. I appreciate that. That's a really important point and I also experienced that I mean there's a period of time. It's not necessarily years and years and years not necessarily months and months and months but There is a gap period. Where the car's in the shop and the transmissions getting replaced. And you're not traveling very quickly while that is happening necessarily So thank you for backtracking and pausing to describe that thank you. So let's talk about Gay Hendricks and his wife Katie so gain Katie Hendricks. I found my way to gay shortly after Debbie and I got together so debbie had been together for about twenty five.
