I actually saw an astrologer a month ago with a seven arlen session not yet to take a bunch of breaks and she told me that When i was born my father was having his saturn return so he was going for law was really released of inches bow. How was gonna support a child and we just moving from basically but a new kid would arrive you know. That's kind of like a consistent theme through meisters for home I think that is very much shaped by the fact that growing up. I didn't really have this stable home way.
Sable Hotel Navy Pier opening today with Lake Michigan, Chicago skyline views
"It's a big opening day today at Navy Pier even though the pier is still closed, Big New Hotel is opening and the CEO at Maverick Hotels and restaurants is with us now, Bob Bobby, How you doing, Bob? Good morning bombs. I admire you because let's see Navy Pier temporarily closed probably till spring, and the hotel business is tough right now, But you're going ahead with the big opening today. How do you feel about it All? Honestly, we feel good. I think our timing is right. You know, we finished the construction of the hotel in November and decided it wasn't the right time to open and narrowed forward until today, and It just feels right today. We're telling people that it's probably the only time in history they'll have Navy appeared of themselves and then the period when the period opens, that we think that the You know, there'll be a reverse of activity down counts. Now talk about why you're calling this stable. That's name of the hotel s A B l E. What's that all about? You know, that's a great story for those of your listeners. That historians shit downtown Chicago Lord, you know that During the Second World War, Navy pier was actually Enable training facility and they ward an aircraft carrier off the end of the pier to train pilots and take off and touchdown landings. And that crack carrier was the USS able And we thought that was just a great connection for the pier and a terrific story and we decided to name the hotel after that aircraft carrier disable. Yeah, This is this is quite some property and tell us a little bit about the hotel. You have Ah, lot of meeting space and event space. And what is it more than 200 guest rooms in the hotel? 223 guest rooms at the same time that we're opening the hotel will be opening a new restaurant on the pier Lyrica. Which is I was inspired by Latin cuisine, small plates and and share a bles and so on. The hotel also has about 5000 Square feet of meeting space. And, of course, is Probably five FT from Festival Hall, which is the second largest Free span space in the city of Chicago. So we're blessed with a lot of amenities. Bob, I know you've been in the hospitality of business for 40 years. I'm sure you've never seen anything like we've gone through in the past year with the pandemic. The hotel occupancy rates right now. About half what they were two years ago today, But I love that you're optimistic. Talk about why you you feel so positively about all this. I think we're going to see people come out of their caves in big numbers through the summer months, and I think we're already starting to see it. We've as an industry seen an uptick in reservations, future reservations. Um that where there's very courage Ng on the more that we see on the news people getting their vaccines and that the positivity rate has stayed in the relatively modest number more hope that we have by summer will be living our lives a little more normally, after the summer, we get back into the A part of the year that we live off so conventions and business travelers in Chicago and it might be a little bit more difficult, but I personally think the business traveler might come back faster than most people expect. You know, people do business in the city haven't seen their customers in the year and I'm sure they're ready to get back and text their their customers again. Well with your hotel opening today and also offshore, the world's largest rooftop bar. It's It's a great way to in enjoy the pier before all all the crowds come back and and speaking of those crowds. Ah, and I don't know how much you know about this Bob. But apparently Navy Pier is going to use some new optical sensors to monitor where crowds are and where they aren't so that at least as we get through the final what we hope will be the final months of the pandemic. People can Stay safe on the pier. And and that's the most important thing right now, isn't it? It is. Yeah, that's amazing technology. Yup, That's something that they're going to be using when they reopened this spring, and as far as the hotel goes and and the rooms You're sort of modeling everything so that it it pays homage to the pier and Chicago history. Correct Way had an entirely Chicago based team, including designer Jackie Coup architect designer Jack Cope and make you Construction who built the hotel and Jackie took great care to Not not make the hotel look like a cruise ship, but really not too bad, whole nautical theme and you see it whispered throughout the hotel and really were thrilled with the way that the hotel turned out. We're excited to get people over there. One of the interesting things about you know what we learned it offshore to our surprise was Offshore was not a tourist hang out. It was a local hangout. Upwards of 80% of our business were locals and we think we'll see the same with lyric and we think the hotel will will also be a great amenity for for us to live here in the city.

Which Conor McGregor Will Show Up at UFC 257?
"Aerial. Thank you so much for joining me man. It's good to have you back my old friend pablo. It's good to hear from you. You don't call as much. But i do get very excited when you do reach out. Aerial halawani has covered mixed martial arts for fifteen years and he hosts the dc in hawaii. Podcast for espn. I don't call you much. But i call when it's important and it's an important time in your life right now in the life of conor mcgregor right now. You just spoke him in a big sit down four. Espn ahead of this. Weekend's big fight against us poor area so how would you describe how. Connor is feeling mentally right now. So that's a great question. Because i've been covering connor since two thousand thirteen since right before his have debut in. I've obviously seen all the extreme highs and lows of his career. Of course it's been a roller coaster especially the last few years when he became this This megastar this time around. Had you asked me which connor would be in front of me. When i spoke to him would it be the zen like connor. Would it be the trash talking. Connor the jovial connor. You know all the different iterations. I would've said it would have been the urinated conor mcgregor upset conor mcgregor the conor mcgregor. Who had big plans in two thousand twenty to fight. At least three times to fight manny pacquiao right. Reclaim his spot. As the man the king in may but none of that happen instead. What got pablo was actually got a very relaxed conor mcgregor accountable gregory who is like slouched in his chair. I've never seen him sit like this before he was wearing a new custom suit but he's wearing slippers as well sort of like all of us working at home these days as always already all we focus on the positive side. I was ready to continue and it didn't go that way. It is what it is. I still have that inside me now. I'm still ready to go of kept. Preparations are back. And i'm very happy to be back. Twenty twenty one. We're going to replicate this again. I'm starting the year force. Pay per view of the year and a very excited about that. He was very chill. He was very calm cool collected. I don't know if i've ever seen him that. Calm before fight. So i was pleasantly surprised to see that i wanna get into how he may have arrived at that mentality because it's been a year aerial since mcgregor last fought. That fight lasted forty seconds. It ended with mcgregor knocking out. Donald sironi so can you take us back to the aftermath of those forty seconds. What was the expectation for. What would come next for conor mcgregor so going into that fight. Everyone who's like izzy back. Is he still good. Can he stay out of trouble all this stuff and then he comes in there and completely. You know rex ceremony. What about its many style. Vegas is on fire. He gets on the microphone from town. He's calling everyone out. King is back. I mean it's just an electric seen. Only he can bring to the fight. Game had opportunity to go in his locker room afterwards and interview him. And i would describe him in that moment as happy excited actually even a little emotional as well i. I saw him get a little emotional but not satisfied. He wanted to fight february. He in his mind needed to make up for lost time because he didn't fight in twenty nine thousand nine. He spent more time in legal trouble than actually fighting twenty eighteen. The one fight against habib twenty seventeen. The floyd fight so he wanted to make up for lost time. He was pushing to fight the following month. And if not he wanted to fight in march and then of course in march everything changed and what was so interesting about what happened in march was instead of being upset. The press annoyed pissed off like the rest of us that are plans are big. Plans are big twenty. Twenty plans had been derailed. Connor almost took it upon himself to act like a politician. What does that mean. So like conner had a very close relationship with the irish people and they loved him right they had this amazing support towards him and dislike this unwavering loyalty towards him and in two thousand nineteen. They kind of turned on him. And you know you can make a strong case that they were in the they were in the right to do a lot of things to really upset them. Most notably punching that that old man in the bar that was caught on camera and so in march when the country is down in its lockdown. And everyone's depressed. He's doing these presidential videos. Truly down must began and it must begin now. The literally you go online. And he's standing there like president politicians what they should be doing. We must our airports. We must all non-essential business. We must cook all non essential travel. I wanted to call upon my people that were eight people of ireland. This fight needs us all and he started leading by example and he started filming his home workouts and he started donating millions of dollars in personal protective equipment and visiting children's hospitals like say what you about connor and twenty nineteen in two thousand eighteen. He really was on his best behavior in the early portion of the pandemic and really took it upon himself to be this sort of a beacon of light if you will or this positive role model for these people and and i think that he stepped up a lot of people didn't expect that out of him and i think it was sincere was genuine but you know to try to give back to community.

"I wouldn't say like a change is happening to my site but somewhere in that imaginative overlays. I'm seeing like. I'm trying to understand what my experience of having faces. What is that. what's just realizing that. One of the fundamental mechanisms. I used to express to other people. I'm completely blind to you and that this whole time i've been producing a kind of proxy face that i haven't spent any amount of time considering it all sort of like. Yeah like a weird. Yeah it's an inter- it's an energy form and like it seems like it's yeah it's making me see. It is like a bundles of energy. That i've formerly didn't question at all. Thanks conor for this. I think about is. I think you mentioned it to me. A former bark as it. I am meet prior immediately. Just catch and not. Think about it totally. That's batting the mushroom way because that is an immediate switch for second. Yeah anybody can do that at anymore. Now now you're nellis do another one so we're doing very short version. Yeah this because we can do any one of these for hours so now. Look ahead okay. Okay whatever's in front of here. And i want you to ask yourself a question. Sorry to do this one. This is this one's fucked. Are you seeing space between things in other words. Is there death in sight like. Can you see if there's a computer in front of you and a wall behind the computer. Whatever can you see that Arm you did this to me once. Connor fuck me up damn it now. I mean no. I know i forgot about this on purpose. I don't think i did this one with you. But maybe i did. So what do you. What are you seeing well. Now that were messing around with my delicious non non stuff. Now that you've taken away that it's just like colour. We're looking at kind of a field of color. It's color varying degrees of color and let's actually go. Let's let's go. Let's go further than i even went with. Podcast duncan trussell found curled in the fetal position of studio with his eyes. Torn out by forks What what is the color. What is what is color. What's happening there. How's that how you seen that. How's that coming to you. What's well it's it's it's nice. I like it. I like colour. So it's like. I'm looking at my able -tan where i'm according to this and i'm seeing this nice shade of yellow with the wave form of our conversation appearing on it. That's brown which. I didn't know i did notice that until just now. Oh yeah it's brown. It's like a nice but they've done it on per like they've chosen these colors they go nicely with each other. And then i have my flashing modular synthesis. And it's very. It's very beautiful in here. What is it drives me crazy to think. I have never spent any time considering what it is. It's well i guess it's distinguished by where it stops okay. Yeah and if. I'm looking at a wall right now. That has green on it and white right so i'm trying to look at something not computer for myself And i noticed that. When i look at the green and when i look at the white and there yet there's the place where each one of them stops although that's a little confusing because they're also overlaid with what i would normally call shadow so there's a blending of the color slightly there's a bridge between them But the green is giving something to me that the white doesn't and vice versa right color i'm just gonna i'm just gonna let let's just break out of this. I like okay so color. Color is giving something to you and has given something to your entire life which is an inner experience color has given that to you freely your entire life and so when we look at when we look and we see that depth actually is not a site process. It's a it's a it's it's a process it's real but it's not a it's not a product of site we see that there's a color against a color against a color and so we're seeing infinite ways of giving unto us that have been their entire lives so lovely it's nice right That's so cool. Connor i love you man. You're the best. I love you too man and i think it's just like if you just if people would just do this for five minutes like not you know for whatever. People's religious experiences are with mushrooms. Rela steer whatever who the fuck needs it like. This shit is fucking crazy. The compasses forces behind you and in front of you are different. That's crazy like just start doing this stuff anyway. I love it. I know you were probably like i love you but i wanted to add that and also say i love you are so great man you you really are every time we talk you have this leap forward in whatever you're doing out there please keep doing it. It's really cool and everybody goes subscribed to his patriots immediately. Because you this is a. We're just lucky folks like you are are out there man and thank you very much.

"So when we when we speak a word when we speak a word woman engage with something magically through word. What we're doing is infusing ourselves with the contour of the portal to evoke a certain response through the arrival and presence of spiritual being allow. That's that really explains mantra to me. Better than any other exploration. I've heard of it. That is so wild connor. that is so I it's it's so interesting. I feel like i'm talking barris through or something like you've been up in a some kind of cave burning incense and getting slowly lightened out. There really cool man. You've always done this to me like taught you are at like a living psychedelic. And anytime we podcast. I never really feel like oh man. This was not a micro dose always. There's a few people i- podcast with where always excited about it. But i'm excited about it. In the way i get excited about lsd. You know what i mean. There's a little bit of dread associated with it not because the experience is not enjoyable. But because it's it's powerful punch in like could be a lot can be alive this way of reframing things but this is actually something i've been praying for you know and wondering about just 'cause there is lately i have been brushing up against the confi confines or the constrictions of what i'm gradually slowly realizing or just my notions about the way things are and also i've i've i've felt a little. I don't want to say like embarrassed. But just a general sense of like god you sure just like what you're saying upfront. This kind of weird certainty that. I'm eileen into regarding everything you know this like generals it which is ultimately a kind of stagnation. I so that's why i love chatting with people like you because you specifically because you have a really good at breaking those stagnant forms part. Do you think that you have time to do the. Maybe if not a site exercise the a hearing exercise or Either either. I i think the site once. The site one's probably better and i have. I have as much time as you want. Because at six thirty and i just drank like three coffees. God you drink coffee at night. When i do podcasts honor the be that is the most controversial. Things told me that you do okay. So let's let's do it man. 'cause i think it's a great way to to wrap this up and maybe before we do it. Let's get the business that are you currently giving classes right. Our you owe a not giving classes. I mean i'm just doing the show really So that's against everyone with connor abib and there's the patriots patron patriots dot com forward slash connor habib. And that's my main. That's my main gig. I mean i. I have a novel but it's not coming out toll late nazca. Your shrum norton in the us. Loman doubled can't wait here in ireland the fiction but fiction. Yeah yeah. It's like a very gruesome dark gruesome dark book weight And i'm working on another book right now. About the occult. It's gonna be a quite a bit down line. But i do all kinds of sermons and stuff like that with my paycheck patrons about these things. I call them sermons. Because i think people want theological language sure and yeah So that's thank you okay. Let's do this this this sermon or meditation or practice. Whatever you wanna call in. Thank you very much. This is just an yeah of course men and this is just an experiential thing so anybody can do this and it's so simple. Okay so let's let's start with the behind world. Ara what i mean by that. You have an entire lee different experience dunkin. I would assume of what's in front of you. Then what's behind you care. And that's a result of sight. So i want you to. Just let's move into that space by taking that okay. What does that feel like. What's the difference literally kind of So there's a sense of almost like a weird kind of magnetic. Pull or something. When i put my attention where i can't like to the behind world Like i could yet. It's not a comfortable feeling what why get. It's a you know. yeah. As i'm doing it i kind of. Yeah i i. It's making me think. God it's i almost expend a lot of energy to try not to think about everything that's behind me. I can't see so now slowly. Just i'm doing this differently with you. That i deal with people just slowly. Just turn around and tell me the experience of that. I'm turning around and yeah well now. I'm looking out over this beautiful view. Some mountains and all town that formerly was completely avoid and now the void has is vine me getting caught her completely vase of. Isn't it yeah. i also like it's a sense of like i mean. Just just pray because you have my imagination roaring right now. It's it's like a feline quality like things so nimble and graceful that it just jumps behind me instantaneously. Yeah so i'll i'll i'll i'll I'll analyze that. No certain way so you come back to you. It's a sort of an agenda initial place so that's just one way to start getting into this right was is like just notice experience now. Here's here's the one. That i love the most and i want you to just get in touch with the fact that you can't see your face. Okay yeah so what's happening with your site now that you know you can't see your face..

"Whether it's about vaccines or mass or conspiracies or just that conspiracies are lies or That the trump government is doing this or this or this or this and the truth is what's happening is they're it and presenting something with certainty but was a we can't. We can't rely on knowledge anymore. That's part of what's happening that We should beware of this obfuscating sense of certainty like actually certainties. Not bringing clarity at all and part of that is because knowledge. Can't guide us through this actually taking an interest in each other connectivity. That's the thing that brings us through a a thinking and feeling in action response to each other that is loving and that's completely different and also analyzing and looking at our desires what we want and what we're afraid of so that's the second thing there's one more thing and then we can go into each of these there. The other thing is that there's a complete confrontation with and reimagining of health. The body medicine and illness. That's happening right now and We we can see a combination of that in a lot of things that have been happening over the past few years. So this isn't new to this moment. But it's unfolding so battles over gmo's and agriculture revisions of how what kinds of foods we should eat. What's healthy for us. What's not healthy for us. the idea that people are not necessarily the biological sex that they're born into but rather that there is a choice here Or or at least a choice to change the the physicality of that. If if you wouldn't mark the actual feeling is a choice There are ideas about How vaccines work. If they're effective if they're gonna harm people there are all these. There's a there's attempt to ban homeopathy in the us. That's going on right now that most people don't know about Did you hear about what just happened in israel now. What they for the first time they saw you know. The aging process is science. Sees it is something to do with an forgive my mispronunciation something called telomeres. Which to these these things as you get older they get kind of run down and so they just did a study in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber where they extended the telomeres of people. Through this therapy they were doing by twenty percent which was the equivalent of putting them like reversing their age by twenty years in in so that just happened and also. There's all of this talk about these particular vaccines being like sort of new. The way that we're they're not why they're not that vaccine itself is using like new technology and that it points to the possibility of incoming cancer treatments and so yeah we. It's not really a vaccine in the standard sense at all. Yeah the are in a vaccine is not yet how it's like what producing antibodies. Or what's it like. It's while it's it's just sort of break it down and really simplistic version like when you take a regular vaccine and it would be good for people know this. I think how wherever they wanna land iron at is good for people to know when you take a regular vaccine you get a piece of Or like yeah. Basically a piece of the virus right informs a proteins and then you. It's an it's introduced your body and then you produced. Antibodies against it It with this with an marin a vaccine it does something different. It introduces a front to your cells to produce those proteins and then produce the antibodies against them. So there's no long term studies of these and what their effects are so. That's something that's important to think through. I think Wherever you might wanna land on them. I'm getting both vaccines totally. I think i think so that you know i am glad you brought up the the aging thing because there's also the fda has been quietly trying to shut down compounding pharmacies and regulate you late Hormones and what kind of hormones that you can get. So they're all these things that are happening right now when i think n. Refunding out that you can store memory and water instead of material into sort of like you know like other solids. So i didn't know that Yeah that's how homeopathy kind of worse. So we have this whole reorganization of how we approach bodies. Illness anatomy all that kind of stuff. And this to me is a really unpack apparent unraveling of a lot of those concepts of. It's all happening at once. It's culminating now and so we won't actually known for a while how this plays out But we will see it. Play out and the interesting thing is we're so used to doing medicine in such a physical materialistic way that we won't even and thinking of our bodies and health and illness and physical materialistic way that we won't actually even know how to identify when we're sick and when we're healthy anymore and i think that we can see that right and what do you mean by that Well like if but let's let's take it this way if you are a sort of a bounded individual in a materialistic sense the way that everybody thinks of individuals now on the kind of culture that we live. And you're just walking around and you think you're healthy and you you've got no signs of illness or whatever but you are embedded in systems that are completely unhealthy agricultural down some medical systems Social systems relationships with other people. And you're actually making other people sick as a result by supporting this system. That's much different than being somebody. That has a a regard for all their layers of health. Let's say you know. And the kind of terms. We use now mental emotional physical spiritual but we could also say ego astral theoretic mineral if we wanna use the cult body and then also the ways that those we've into the spiritual social organism that everybody else's embedded in so. See those kinds of things when we start sensing health in that way. We might not even know for sick or healthy. You can also see this now just on a materialistic with people being like. Oh the case. Numbers of corona virus are going up but does that mean people are sick or does that mean that they're healthy. Does that mean that they're dying. Does that mean that there is very confusing and the messaging is confusing and that's just a surface Like a metaphor almost an expression of the deeper thing. That's going on with this reconfiguring. So those are the three things that i think are going spiritual proximity sir. The office getting bean of certainty and the reevaluation of The individual health an illness and anatomy..

"Of matter and send rays of divine data. Today's guest counter habib connor. Welcome back to the h. My friend. I i i. I've been trying to visualize where you live. And i wonder if you could describe it to us so that we can fully understand your reality. Okay so i live in dublin. it's It's very calm here and quiet here I mean sometimes dublin can be a really loudly boozy city. But it's been calm all year. And i've been appreciating the quietude of that I live on the end of a dead end street. And you know ireland. Everybody's pretty friendly to each other. They're pretty neighborly We do have are sort of weird problems. But it's like it's it's warm here. You know like places. Like i have a fireplace in my house now and it just feels. Cozy gets dark at in the winter. So we're recording this in mid november so it gets dark lake around four o'clock which nobody tells you like fucking iceland and they just don't know that before you move here that i'll tell you that and so that's really disorienting. Mikula sleep besides that. It's pretty calm existence. I read and i write and do spiritual work and i do my show and that's pretty much it. I mean that's you know that's that's what my life was before everything started going crazy. So what's it like watching the united states from another country. Well i mean. I got to say i'm not surprised. Yes about the turmoil. Yeah you remember the last time we recorded together which was a year ago now almost exactly a year ago and i done to shows right around that time. I did your show. And i did my friend. Gordon's chevron soup and both those who were talking about. Well what's the challenge. Let's face the world right now. And i said on your show what actually is happening is that they're all these events that are coming through really intense but the real problem is that people can't see like what's really happening can't see beyond them can't talk about anything but them so it's actually the area anxiety and feeling an obfuscating force around the events that's causing the greater problem right and and then on the other show. I said you know this is the most michaella year. Meaning we're going to have to referencing the archangel michael. We're going to have to bring things from out of ourselves that the world usually gives to us so in both cases like i'm not i'm not psychic in the sense that i can see things or have visions or whatever but i often will kind of know what's happening and it just takes away sort of surveying the world and so when i obviously that was in i think what december and then the other show was in january so i didn't know that you know all this shit was going down but one started showing up. I knew that like oh well this is just. This is just what i thought was going to happen. Which is an intensification of problems that you know intensify the sense of problem and not being able to actually see into the heart of it which is the real problem is the not being able and also we're going to need to bring things from out of ourselves that have usually been handed to us by the world and so for me. It's not so crazy. And i see it happening everywhere in different ways so yeah and the. Us is happening. One way and ireland is happening. Another way and italy has happened in another way and china's happened another way so on and so forth. So i yeah i it's it seems razi in a way but not not so much actually in other ways like okay. Yeah this is what was meant to happen what was supposed to happen. This is the time line that were in and we have to cope with it and of course that brings a lot of suffering for a lot of people including people i know who have died or you know whatever but it's But that's not. That's not avoidable. Right yeah it. Yeah it is happening every i guess that's kind of the one of the many ways that you can trick yourself right now is you can think. Oh it's only happening in my particular locality you know. It's it's only happening in my city year. It's only happening in my country. When it's yes seems to be a global phenomenon that the pandemic though right remember before the pandemic there was like global uprisings that were happening and this pandemic seemed to have tried to stop them. But it didn't work. People kept doing it but from your perspective what i mean. How would you analyze this like what what. What's the what is the thing. What's the deeper truth behind the pandemic. What what you know. What i mean like the pandemic's like the ripple of something deep swimming under the water. So what's that thing. Yeah yeah. I mean it's hard to it's hard to see the global crisis and the election and all that kind of stuff as expressed like surface expressions because they seem like they go so deep. But in fact you're right to say there are surface expressions There are a few things happening. One is there's a different kind of proximity to the spiritual world now which is driving people. Crazy you know. I was talking to this guy. I don't know if this episode will be out before the one that i recorded with this paranormal investigator john any but he was bringing up. You know about a hundred years ago. This book called the great. God pan came out and in that this woman has this thing that affects her eyes and she can see the spiritual world and she goes crazy and then about one hundred years later. Somebody made this movie bird box where people you know blindfolded themselves to not see spiritual beings so they won't go crazy and now we're in a pandemic and People are looking into it and going nuts. Why area when they look upon it. So i mean obviously we can say that that patterns arbitrary or like my my friend doug rothkopf cop says that could be rectal. Neue you're coming up with a pattern. That's not there. I would say just because you're fractional. Does it mean that they're not after maybe so so it could be both arbitrary entry hat and so the so the so. That's one thing is just the proximity of the spiritual world in a different way and different spiritual beings and we can talk about that if you want would love then a bit but then Another thing and i would and this is the caution everybody to look into is that there is An assertion of certainty about what's happening. Yes and i've been noticing it. Everybody people who i respect and love and usually get things. Right are asserting with absolute certainty. What is going on..

"You have to do is do the okay. So so but the reason I'm bringing up focusing on sax aside from the fact that it's scintillating titillates people and it's like off limits. It's also if we're we're GONNA talk about the chain of existence or at least the where our civilization grows from and which is the pixels of a civilization or people and the people come from fucking talking but if the fucking is coming from darkness then we're born out of darkness and we're born for a lot of people were born into if nothing else the thing that you definitely flink shot your windows for you know like people closed their windows for sex. When you're about to fuck you close the windows and you know maybe not everybody some people I leave it open? Leave it open but even that it's like leave it open weird you know so many other things I do with the windows open. You don't even think think about right. Sex there's Elvis on you're aware of windows and so this is the. I think that the reality of being a human is that you're born into darkness sexual darkness and what what else. How if that's what we're growing out have love then fuck you know what I mean like? Of course there's all these threads have shame and these strange a sense of guided in my. Okay did warn Myo Right. Why do I do this? What is this even? If it's a slight little just a slight. Would it barely even move if there was a what do you call it a geiger counter for sexual shame. Even if it's just a little e you focus on that until it looked like a giant fuck right like trump's signature. Yeah Shark Fin. Yeah is it a shark fin. Have you never seen the signature. I've seen the signature but I've never seen a shark fin in it. Oh it will just these like it. Looks like jagged teeth basically are yes anyway. That's that's why because it's like meditation MHM certainly poetry any kind of artistic expression also weirdly for me a lot of art like you'll talk to people full about. Why don't you try writing or you know from me when I'm making music I'll feel real shame for no reason at all about like my connection with creativity is has this darkness in to you? Know it's it's I think. Many of us just have a nice. The thread of darkness weaving around. Not just the access but the stuff in between in it. Yeah and so two things one is to say that I love the point. You're making about like we're born out of and through through darkness were created through this sort of darkness of of sex right. I mean that's really incredible. Think of right like what. Hope hope do we have in some way if that's what we're coming from and you can apply that to lots of different areas of life like one of the things I like to say is like how the fuck are we going to solve any problems in this swirled. If when I ask you to think about a cat and I say think about a cat for two minutes straight. You can't fucking do. It balked man like you can't think about. You can't hold the the thought of a cat for two minutes straight. Like your mind's going to go and eight million different directions so if you can't hold a single thought for two minutes. How can we solve any of these monuments? Problems comes before us right right. And there's a kind of darkness there it's like. When did my thoughts get fragmented? When did they go off in this direction? You don't know yourself you don't know the process. The dynamic namic active process of your own thinking right but part of that comes from being born of this darkness that you're talking about and unfortunately spiritual teachers. Insurers are almost no help in this area at all they all suck on it the most brilliant minds of the world to say the stupidest things about sex you know and the way I always say is like if you go to spiritual like seminar or conference or go to Esselin or whatever the fuck you go to and some spiritual teacher starts talking about sex raise your hand and be like how many people have you had sex with and if they hesitate there and if they say less than a thousand than fuck it Ramda's that man for you yes thinking. Oh that's what he's he did publicly say I've had sex with thousands of young oceans. Pretty good on it like there are a few people that are pretty pretty like like thoughtful about it and it's not that you have to have sex with thousands of people to have a good opinion of it. I'm not saying that you have to do that. It's just that it tends to be that people talk about it from a spiritual perspective all the time without having very much experience at all right and so you're getting a really really really distorted boarded view of it or they have their up there in that they mentioned sex. This is where you know. Something's fucked if you're with US beer teacher and they mentioned sex but they do it in kind of like. Yeah Oh yeah yeah that that. You're giggle thing. That's that's a weird pollutants right. Let's cut to a commercial real quick. The baby just woke up and then we'll come back.

"Just. I can't even match if if I was like one thing when I'm driving around that I don't think national second and if I did think it I would be Mike. Whoa you got to cut back on the lead man? Because I don't think that's necessarily. This is the part. Where in the periscope video where the heart start showing up and then like Dunkin? We love you. I I think I know where my strengths and weaknesses but but the on another level I think at some point I would feel when I was hooking up with people that they were using me. Yeah totally and then that would be devastating. That would make me start feeling really angry and lonely. That's it's own. That's it's own thing you know like I was in Dublin and where I live now and I went and to like this there were like four guys having sex mandalit come over on an APP so I went over and like they all knew who I was but they didn't tell me that they knew I was and then they. I started getting their phones out and to film me while I was there without asking me and I'm like what the fuck are you guys doing. We face won't be. I'm like you think I fucking care if my faces. This isn't like that's not the issue like you guys are using this for your own fucking shit and that's that was really disturbing so I had to go home and like walk. Walk Myself through that and figure out and it was fine afterward but it was like getting to like situations like that. Where even after you've work through a lot of stuff sexually that other people may not have you're constantly encountering everybody else's Shit right so like a constantly encountering and he'll like fuck like that's what that darkness is like and that's what that does to people and that's what it did to me? It's just that I continued walking through it and a lot of sex workers. That's what they ended up doing is like the essays like sex workers Bear the burden of a culture that refuses to work on its attitude to sex right so like like sex workers have to stay see all of this and like they have to deal with in some sense with a kind of detachment I think the detachment can be very healthy healthy. It can be a real amazing skill to have in your life and why sex workers often become hospice care workers. They can touch bodies. They're you know not into or that are doing weird things are going through weird processes but I think more than that you just end up encountering the darkness around sex and I keep saying darkness. I don't mean evil I mean the light isn't there and that's again where this question started from what you mean you know to bring to bring light and and there are lots of other things I said. You know magic meditation poetry you know Music all these kinds of things that can bring a kind of light to places is that are uninsured and develop in you because you have to go through all that darkness you develop capacity and developing that capacity brings a kind of potency which creates a radiation of light which allows people to form these kinds of constellations of beacons around the world. And I think that that's what twenty twenty needs to be. Yeah about that's beautiful so have sex with me Duncan and then we'll see what happens it can't I've talked to my wife so she talked the she'd be like yeah you have to do is do the okay. So so but the reason I'm bringing up focusing on sax aside from the fact that it's.

"Me De Trestle and you have tuned into the Doug Trust family our podcast. I'm going to start off with talking about some that. A lot of the people been asking me about online. If I'm sure most of you are aware of this by now. One of my teachers Ramdas passed away a few days ago. Cowan folks have been asking me to talk about him a little bit one of my friends. Vitamin D do is podcast to do a tribute to him. And I thought about about it and I just don't think I'm really at a point where I I don't even understand what it means that he has died. I mean I know he's not here anymore I know his physical body is being cremated and I don't know yet how how to feel about about it and I'm not going to rush some kind of a piff Unie related to his passing. But I will talk talk about it eventually. You know what by we'll tell you this one little story and I've got a lot of great stories about him because I got lucky enough to go to these these retreats in Maui and do interviews. Not just with him but with some of the teachers that would show up there and I would get to be on stage with him an interview him and for me. This was just excruciating. I was so star struck by him and so overwhelmed by because he meant so much to so so many of us I mean he was everything that I could want in a spiritual and a teacher. He was On one level this apostate professor who is getting blasted on. LSD took LSD to India travelled through India giving LSD to people meets this incredible being named Croly Baba and Awakens and becomes Rahm. Does this teacher who truly radiated love and there airways you got around him and you would get high as a kite. Gist from whatever. The contact high was from being in his presence. You would feel feel so good. I was always overwhelmed by that. And there was the kind of thing where you after. You've been hanging out with him. There was still this vibe Ra- Tories sense of just love and just peace and I am very sad that that has gone And that that that experience is not going to be accessible in the usual Away anymore by usual. I mean being around A living person but I was sitting on stage with them once. And you know I would try to formulate these questions that would make me look cool up there. Because I felt so scared I was always nervous so I try to come up with some brilliant question to ask the great teacher. And I've been stewing over. What task him you know? And we all knew. At that time he was getting close to letting go of his body. And we were all like feeling that And so I'm sitting up there with him and I said what are we gonNa do so you when you die. And he like scrunched up his face in mock sadness and basically went way and we like completely ignored like just making fun making fun of me in that way only like the real teacher can. Because it's like yeah. My question was bullshit. It wasn't even based on me maybe even one during that As much as trying to come up with like a cool thing to ask him. And maybe the way I'm describing. It makes him seem callous but it was so real and so beautiful and and also within it. There was this merciful sweetness. This like. Don't worry about that. That's that's not like indeed have that's not anything to worry about. Because as he has said other times where would I go. Oh and so this is all in my head stuff and intellectual stuff and the Times I have gotten into my heart and really we felt that. It's I start crying and that's where I'm out with it so I'll talk about it more for sure but right now I'm just GonNa put a pen in that so to speak but I wanted to say something about it upfront. So I didn't sound absolutely crazy to those of you know how much I love that man. An and How much he meant to me? Not just to me but my God so many people's lives were transformed because his selfless commitment to helping people in whatever way could not just in spiritual teachings but just in any way at all all all right. That's my Rom dos thing. Whatever that is and but boy we've got a great podcast view today? Connor Habib is here and with us and this conversations about two hours long and my God we covered everything we covered everything everything from sunlight. Going into your ass to.

"habib" Discussed on Skeptiko - Science at the Tipping Point
"I'm sorry. I don't want to be an emperor. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone. If possible we all want to help one another human beings. I like that want to live by each other's happiness, not each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one. Another in this world has room for everyone and the good is rich and can provide for everyone the way of life can be free and beautiful. And we have lost the way greed has poisoned been. So so if you are materialistically focused and your disconnected from the spiritual compassionate part. We can all see that and point at that and go, oh how terrible. But when we see the atheist Heather bird USC disconnect were unable to do the same and say will your compassion is disconnected from the deeper spiritual reality. Cries out universal brotherhood for the unity of a soul. Even now, my voice is reaching millions throughout the world. Millions of despairing men women. Victims of a system that makes them in torture prison innocent. Ask ourselves consistently and my evil. It's on. It's almost like the opposite of gift. You can ask yourself. If you're crazy, then you're not crazy. If you can ask yourself, if you're evil, then you actually do have the potential to become evil because if you never ask then you're just in this way of compulsive sleepwalking forces like everybody else, and you know, nothing you do is really evil, but also nothing you do is really good like you not really acting out of intention at all. So you're not really able to extend to love and compassion for real in an intentional purposeful and meaningful way to people's and that is the gift of the possibility of evil to us. That's the gift of free will to us is that the separation the ability to do evil means that if we look at that we ask ourselves that we can do good in the world. View coming up in a minute with Connor Habib. And you just heard both of us talking over the very great in famous Charlie Chaplin clip from The Great Dictator, and while I almost feel like we can't possibly do Justice to a clip like that I did want to set the stage for a discussion that I feel like has been going on in the background here on skeptical for a while. And that is the link or maybe better said the disconnect between spirituality and progressive social thinking. I mean when you listen to Charlie Chaplin who the heck disagrees with any of that. But at the same time does anything Charlie Chaplin is saying there does any of that make any sense if there isn't a larger spiritual reality, so in this interview, we talk about that it takes us a little while to get there. There's a lot. Other things that Connor, and I talk about it was a great chat a really interesting chat. And I appreciate having the opportunity to talk to Connor since I've known him for quite some time in these never been on skeptical. One other note, I do so appreciate everyone. Connecting with me. It's been awesome. If you haven't heard, I guess, I'm putting out the word there that I'm here, and I'd love to hear from you. And while I'm at it. I guess I'd also put out the word that let your friends know about skeptical. I know many of you have, but they probably forgot I'd love to grow this community only as much as it -sposed to grow. So as I just said that I take that back don't tell anyone about skeptic. Oh, that isn't -sposed to know about it. But if you know someone who is supposed to know about it who's supposed to come in here and join our dialogue. Please let them know. Okay. Onto. To my interview with Connor a beep. Today. We welcome Connor Habib to skeptic o Connor is an author lecturer and host of against everyone with Connor Habib, which you will find on YouTube and also he has a download of it in podcast form. So Connor welcome to skeptic. Oh, thanks for joining me. Thanks, alex. I should correct in you should start over because it's mostly a podcast. You can only get the YouTube or bitchy on pitcher. I just changed that like a week ago. Do you wanna start start that over Mel I'm not going to because it's how you sucker people in. I've gone. You have the ten minutes there. And then you say, oh, yeah. Okay. Good. All right. Dammit. I should've I should've stopped you. You know, what you're doing you better at that than I am. All right. We can talk a little bit about that. It's it's you get some really good guests on there. And it's pretty amazing. And I was on there. You were so nice to have me on there. And I really enjoyed it. I think we had a great conversation. You are really quite good at asking these questions and bringing these dialogues in places where a lot of people don't go. And that's why I was so excited to have you on. But I had to say, you know, when we set this up I could have sworn that you had been on skeptical before because we've known each other for a long time. And we've had all these great conversations. And then I checked in you haven't. And I felt like, wow, what am I doing? How come I? Four. Yeah. Well, I'm glad you noticed that discrepancy because I've been listening to show probably listening almost every episode of this point, which by now is a lot and haven't been listening to it for years and years, and our first conversation was when I had a sort of failed attempt to start a podcast years ago. And I was a big skeptical fan I interviewed you, and we just talked about we talked about the science. We talked a lot about Richard Dawkins. It seems things have come a long way since. And of that conversation, and it seems like our concerns are not the same. Well, I mean, we still are concerned about that. But
UFC featherweight GOAT debate intensifies following Max Holloway's dominant UFC 231 win
"It was a bit of a debate online. But who's the goat at featherweight and some people think it's still Josie. Although some people think it's max Holloway. I'll save that debate for another time. I don't really want to get into it. Because no one's going to win every side just going to pick who they think is the right answer. But here's one thing. I can say there is a real possibility that max Holloway can become the featherweight GSP only the more modern risk taking version. Here's what I mean. What may GS PG? Well, first of all again, these are things that could happen. I don't know if it's going to happen. But one probability, you should probably consider is that like if you think about what may GS piece of special, right? It's probably a combination of things is an incredible skill. He was a national icon. He defended his title a number of times all those things would have put together this larger package, but when he fought what did he do especially in that later stage of his career? He used basically his skills to define the terms of the fight over and over in a very controlling stifling way. Didn't take a lot of damage at the end there the Hendrix fight or a couple of others notwithstanding. And that was you could make an argument that some of that was a little risk averse, but the point being smart you kept his title, and he did legendary things, but the key. There is a he was able to impose a very dominant. Encompassing fight defining way of managing his opponent. He took a fight that is normally a very chaotic thing. And then controlled for it. We had Gracie on last week. And I asked him what defines the jujitsu of Brian Otake. Everyone's got their own style. Right. Like like gosh. I mean, Andre Calvo's Jiu jitsu is not the same. As Keenan Cornelius is not the same as the Mendez brothers is not the same as I mean, you pick it right? Goes on and on everyone's got their own little style. But his was that in the middle of chaos. He can find a neck, you can find an arm. He can he can bring something. To bear down upon it. Which is true. If I was really smart observation, and by the way, Brennan will take it. We'll be back. He will make he will make a reappearance in remind you of why he was so highly valued as a potential threat to max Holloway's crown down the line after heels and everything, but here's the point that ability to control the chaos, max Holloway does the same thing. He takes everything away by making the fight on his terms through distance through use of the jab all the things I mentioned in the hour if he can cut the weight enough and stay for the wait long enough people keep saying oh shit. If I next Nate or Tony or Habib or Connor it is not that. I don't wanna see those contests. But I'm telling you, we are missing something if we deny him the opportunity at being the sentinel at the guard for one Forty-five because he can be the exact same kind of thing. Doesn't matter. What skill you bring? Are you a high? Octane jujitsu specialist. Who's got a ridiculous chin who can has developing striking. He has an answer for that. Are you the potentially the guy who was the guy the best ever not division? He's got an answer for that. Or are you a wrestle boxer? He's got an answer for that. Are you whatever he's got an answer for all those things if you look at his rise with you want to compare it to Aldo's or not look at the different kinds of fighters. He has faced has faced all the different kinds. He could face potentially at one forty five. No, which is why some kind of a rain there is necessary. But he has fought a lot of different types already guys who are wrestling threat guys who are power threat guys who are volume threat guys who are striking threat guys who have veteran experienced guys who have who are a little bit undeterred by experience and just sort of go for broke..

"What is patriotism to you? You know, I think about what it is that allowed me it three time cancer surviving fully blind iranian-american from a mixed religion, immigrant family to be able to serve in this role. And I think it is the welcoming spirit and the desire to continually renew ourselves as a country. It's love of that. It's love of, you know, no sacred cows. It's love of we will continually question and rebuild and innovate and challenge ourselves to be made new again, most tangibly through immigration, but also through disruption innovation and technology and and the. The arts, new ideas, and that that to me is what I love about this controlling any other country on earth was based on an idea, and that idea continues to exist and it continues to get reimagined as more and more people are brought into it. The question is, as we continue to evolve as a country as more and more people get to have a voice in this great American idea, can we talk to one another? Can we communicate with one another in a way that that is respectful in a way that demonstrates that were not threatening one another that we all just want to be included? And I think that that can be done, but it does require those of us who are people of color. Those of us who are who do have disabilities, and I know this can be frustrating, but it does require us to do a little bit of that extra work of reaching out to those who may feel threatened and. I know it can feel like, why do we have to do this over and over and over again and van Jones makes this point. It is unfair. It's deeply unfair because we have done anything wrong. But at the same time I want the future of this country to be one that is knit together and where white black, Iranian American Indian American. You know, all of us feel that we are better off because of this. And right now we're just not there. And so that might mean that we have to do a little bit of the extra work right now. But I think the payoff for future generations will be tremendous. This idea that we're ever improving more inclusive as President. Obama reminded us always becoming a more perfect union. We have to do that hard work and make sacrifices, and sometimes those who have to do that have been the ones who've been oppressed to storage safely. But let's show by example, what makes this country. Great. So that's a very good answer with which I agree. So final question you then, would you take the opportunity. Eighty here. And now on this podcast to announce your candidacy for president, I believe you have just cleared the age requirement very recently, what is what do you say you say? I thought you and I were friends and so announce on my podcasts best you wanted what's best for me and. I will. I'll tell you. There. I appreciate that there is another person from our state who is seriously considering running for president. So I've been told, I don't know that first hand object bazo. I think I think. His name and you laugh that's not going to be good for you. I think he's got enough on his hands right now. Okay. So so here here we have it. You do not rule it out? Well, no, I will say this. I was born in the United States. Yes. So you say, so I want neck so I wanted I will be on record as to the contrary that however they won't. Yeah, I believe you will look. It's been great having on the show, as I said at the beginning, what you've done in in how you achieve what you've achieved is is really inspiring to a lot of people.
