The Nature of Existence

"Good Morning. Can. You hear me you good. Good. Well, today's another day. In groundhog week as I call it. On cycling round. And again I'm I'm having a hard time saying something about this this Buddha nature, this true nature that we have. So I decided that, I would talk com. Joe Shoes Joe Shoes Dog So this case eighteen from the book of equanimity. Joe Shoes. Preface to the assembly. Poke a floating good on the water and it turns. A diamond in the sun has no fix shade of Cola. No mindedness cannot understand. Yes. Mindedness cannot see. Even an immeasurably great person can be turned about by woods. Is there any way to escape that? Now. The main case. attention. Among. Asked Master Joe Shoe does a dog have Buddha nature. Joshi replied. Yes. And then among said, since it has, how did it get into that bag of skin? Joe. said. Because knowingly he purposely fans. On another occasion among cast Josiah. Does. The dog have Buddha nature? Joe. Shoe said, no. Then the monk said. Beings have put in nature. Why doesn't the dog have it? Joe Shoe said it is because of his having comic consciousness. The appreciate jury verse. A dog. Spoon Nature. Yes. A dogs but a nature. No. From. The first, a straight hook seeks fish with abandoned. Chasing the spirit seeking the fragrance. A cloud and Walter Guest pattering and chattering to make debates and excuses. It's his evenly revealed grandly displayed. Don't worry that he's not half full of the start. Pointing to the fault, he snatched the jewel away. King Shin did not know showed you roggin. Maybe. I'll just start without that last line. Appointed at the fall, snatched the jewel away. King, Shin. Did Not know showed you now, this is an old Chinese proverb I don't if we've got something in. in the West the the works in the same way. But. Apparently, showed you full to go and give this really amazing Jill to to the king of the Shinsho him. But he he kinda you took it and he wouldn't get it back. So showed you roggio. Would he goes? Well, don't you know this fall tin it? There's a volt in this fuel. which. Obviously Dan would make it less valuable, and so he goes to me and I'll show you where the fault is and so. You got the chill back and somehow got out the out of the castle whatever and escaped with the Jill. So, this is referring really to to Joe Joe Shoe sends, Zim, down one track. And then the next minute could be the next day. You know when when he asked the second question. then. He sends him down a different track. Now. This is kind of interesting because in the in the preface, it goes even immeasurably great person can be turned around by woods. Is there any way to escape that you know quite often where You know we don't. We don't like the power woods in many ways we We go really shouldn't be turned around by woods and what people say and do, but as a fact, we actually do. You, know if you if you look at The statements that? Great politicians of made. You know like. It's not what you can do for your country Swat. You know what? What you what you can. Any which way, round all. It's not what you country can do for you is what you can do you country. Thanks. Thanks guy. That's good. You know state statements like that. We have a big effect in fact Japan was to surrender, the the Prime Minister of Japan at that time went to see i. think it was Yamamoto Gimpo. She who's like related to our rick lineage us like the. Dhamma, brother of of Let's see. I think was Kyko she and doable now let's see. Heiko Joko. Rosie. And Get, Yamato Game Perot. She said to the prime. minister. You've gotTa do two things. Who's let the emperor be like the song and as a people we have to bad the unbearable. So then he said this in the speech of the emperor said this in the in the speech and enable the Japanese people to surrender, and so there would be no wool more warfare in us an amazing thing. Right that just with words. So. You look at Joe Shoe and what he says you know. I think it was Dogozendi. Energy called him the Golden. Tongue Buddha. because. He's is eloquence, he could just Just. Out, of the blue, just come up with with amazing quotes and to people around through that. Man, this is one of the things that we hope will occur through. 'em practice the just the practice and then his maybe here in something that turns you around in one way or another. So these words are important. It's important to make the attempt you know. So he we have a monkey comes up to master Joe. Shoe. And says, does the dog have been a nature? And this obviously now is somewhat more immortalize down to. To the press day because of the color on new. You know at this point, apparently, the car move wasn't really in place. So Josiah says yes now. Does that really make an effect to to your experience of move or good nature. Intense your own life the Buddha. Unfortunately, got this would buddha attached to him. We. Simply means awaken one now if you say. does the dog have awakened nature? I mean, straight into English. Probably say. Yeah, just like Joe. Joshua's yeah. I mean dogs awake you know. I've look of it. So wake no problem. Now when we start to do that somebody says, are you awakened maybe maybe he'll be some doubt breath. What does that actually mean? What does it mean to be awake? Does the dog. Does tension have awakened? Nature. Do I. Have it? You could say, yes, you could say, no to kind of be relevant in many ways. The pope is still moving around. You know whether it's yes or no. There's no problem that. Does a dog have awakened nature. But why does that interest us? You know what? Why does that question interest as why is he haunted us? For generations even if you don't use You know regular. Regular language say said, Buddhist, we say you use Christianity does is everybody the image of God for instance or creation of God? You know you may be look around and maybe think about it for a bit. Does everything appear as is is maybe another way, but he haunts us. Why because in many ways we want something. You know we want something we want to. We want something to have to own something we can rely on. But maybe that thing that we can always rely on we've had since we were little kids. You know the Buddhist. This is really simply due to walk condition it. The way that we've conditioned ourselves, we've been conditioned by society. We overlay that. And then take that as being real. So a large part of practice is, how do I go to that condition to the direct experience? Were educated a highly educated where EDUCA- to. Sense looking at things. But then this the experiential aspect, the tends to get buried having all this knowledge. How come I come meg? How how having all this knowledge? How how can I come work out the meaning of life? C.. You can say in Zan is it is a shift from a thought based system, which will already really good at his amazing tool back to an experienced based system. So we really feel and are interactive with the world on a momentary basis, and then thought becomes an amazing tool to express that in many different ways. So that. That's the shift. So this. This monkey. You know he's coming up with a pretty standard question. Does the dog had nature? Threw himself obviously isn't clear else more than likely. He wouldn't be asking that question. Do I have Buddha. Nature is really more close to the. To to the point. Do I have Buddha, nature? And if that is in clear than most of the rest of life is in player either. Was this nature. How can it be clarified? and. Then down down below in the appreciably verse, she says about the monk chasing the spirit seeking the fragrance, a cloud on wall to get something the comes and goes nothing is always that twenty four seven. PATTERING, and chattering to make debates of excuses. But we like to do that. You know we like to talk about things. Seem expert in our field. You know. But at the same time is the is it really embodied, which is the main part of the The process of practice you to really embody is not just having a realization or an inkling, is that embodied as a life as living? No matter. No matter what the circumstances or the. Whether it seems successful or failure. You know what is that? So. He's kind of interesting, you know the then. Joe Shoe. says. Yes. A little bit further down. He goes where? Where were we? He's not very. He's not very careful as the at the beginning. So Joe just goes. Yeah. You know like any anybody's do, yeah. Everything has been a nature. You look at the first statement to shack you Mooney, Buddha, the Cohen of Buddhism in itself. I will beings great earth the wisdom of the of the awakened one to the snus. So, must do statistics and that's the phrase that I use most. I'm just a power up for the Buddha. But you know that that's the people go. Of course, all things have happened the nature. Cools. But do you know what that nature is and to see that nature and a dog? You have to really experience it in? Yourself is a clear. And for generations after after this column, people work on this. You know putting all kinds of things on one side to really make that thing clear for regular person is why you doing that kind of crazy. You know course everything has nature. But does it really affect your life? Does it penetrate your mirror? So, he goes on. and the monk. Doesn't want to appear to be. You know slouch and wants to be shut off. He says since it has, how did it get into that bag of skin? As. If put a nature is separate from. Everything else. This. kind of interest in because You know we in the West. Judy. Chris Christie and forms religion. This that aspect to have people who are. The righteous knows that are not the right ships. You know, of course, we have similar things in Buddhism. But everything without. Without exception. As this wisdom virtue, what is the wisdom? Does it looked like something? I mean, this is really important as it looked like something. For my for myself, I've been shocked over and over hearing. and seeing great wise actions and speech from people are totally unexpected people that you wouldn't think. And not that to me is an incredible thing. So rather than looking in certain areas that wisdom and it doesn't have to be with human beings animals, you see incredible things. But. This nature, it's not really clear for you as a human being. So, how did it get into that bag of skin? Is If a dog? and. Again, you know dog has a low status in China. In fact, they are eaten in some cases. You know sometimes you get petition signed this. So the so-called doggy festival won't Wanaka. Now. So you can see it's like a social hierarchy that. You know this book Nature Than Disease Loa Loa creatures the Don quite half that. But is that really true? I mean freeze one of us we have to look. What we assign as what I would call. True Religion to any. Being creature is any of those things. Really true. then. Now this is interestingly, this is interest-. Interesting to me. Joe. Shoe goes because knowingly he purposely fans. This this line is like is like Bob, is like a hook, knowingly the dog purposely offense. Why is he say's now? Does dog offend? Yeah. We've seen dogs do all kinds of things. You know I usually get in trouble for talking about what dogs do. So you know, but but each one of us you know, do we offend knowingly? Knowingly has a certain connotation knowingly. Is a dog trying to overlay his dog nece with diagnosis. Is, a dog, China overlays life with with with a nature. So again, Perot she when I first came to Z. Cla. Asked me said. He said, he told me a state and he said the English don't have nature. So I said, well, why would I want one of those? So. I was precocious in in that way, it is not overlaid over something else. I am thoroughly what I am. I can't help doing that. You, know, is it knowingly I don't know I can't help being who I am. You know certain things we have that. But statement, which is applicable to the column hunting. Dogs. Scott, Hunt. You know each one of us approaches life in a certain way. We get a certain amount of freedom by looking at those things that have bitch will and those things that are instinctive way of being human beings knowingly, he purposely offense. a bit later on this. This great line in the appreciate reverse egos From the first a straight hook? Seeks Fish. With, abandon. Straight Hook. As. Anybody used a straight hook efficient. You, you know just like a hook cal. Won't doesn't stick. That works a straight hook. It doesn't work. For somebody to get coal, they have to want to get cold. This is a really important thing in practice you go to one to get. Cool. Is interest in this, this call on the me was a turning point. Because I worked on it with three different teaches and I, passed with each teacher. But I didn't pass it for myself. So I continued working on it. That was a straight hulk. Yeah. It was through has passed. I was off the hook as it were I, could go onto the next one. But for me is I couldn't let it go. To Sleep fountains, what the hell are they talking about and I couldn't let it down twenty, twenty, four, seven. They went tom maybe a couple of weeks. Just like what are you really talking about? Until, but it's not just the intellectual aspect it had to be internalized. Knowingly as a dog as a human being. How can I? How can I escape this? How can it be something else what? I really look in for. All of these things came up. Until it finally dawned on me and that that nature was clear. It was obvious. And that was one of the most beautiful things that ever could in my life, but I didn't stay that you can't stay as that life continues. This nature's always appearing as difficulty as ease. As all kinds of things and that aspect of call one when it really grabs you, it needs to be looked at in other words is a you know is just basic, question cannot be like, oh. A Ni- A I, won't be satisfied until that bridge has been bridged has been crossed. It's been taken care of. On this appears in many aspects of life colonies natural to us as human beings. So you know we go on knowingly, he purposely offense. Each one of us is that knowingly we purposely and I cannot help being who I am. I remember one. So went to to tomorrow to Montana to to Jamaica XS family. My parents were were talking to. One at one of the. Relatives and. The. Relatives, todd started going yet. Yeah, I was there at Normandy. You know and. My Dad was talking to about Normandy and and then. Say since mom came over and when. You know don't don't worry about John He tells lies. He told us that he's it was kicked by booking. Bronco. But he was drunk and fell down the knocked his teeth out. On the curb you know, but it says thing is the acceptance don't mind. John E tells lies. So he cannot help being who he is accepted by the family integrated with the family. You made a light that story. But. It's an example. These are examples. And it's the same with the Sangha people are the way they are. They probably will never be different in that way. To my like into your liken, it doesn't matter. But how do you really swallow person hull and accept that? Put. Hood. awakeness. Whatever I mean, that's a debate. That's a debate. But it's also a reality that occurs. So. It goes on another occasion. The monk doesn't let this up. and. We assume it's the same person. 'cause it's in the same case, but it could have been somebody else. But this is a good teacher. It doesn't go down the same path got I've got that tied said, yes. Last time it worked. This time he says the usual, we are The, the we see today he goes. No. Doug doesn't have Buddha nature. So. This is this is the one. The Akron said a set of the glaring eyes of monks Foam Millennia. He Says No. Now. He's kind of interested in. You know if you, if you feel this this this nature, this book donated this MOU. You feel it and you experience it doesn't matter whether you attach. Yes or no to that. Somebody says, yes. Great. If somebody says, no. Gray. Does does it make any difference? It just does a just like just words. The flow by this, the direct experience, which is is here twenty, four, seven, Mike Zimmer row. She would towards the end of my training would say, no and his like less fine. He says now. The smell reality right now. No. Doesn't affect. Me Doesn't affect what I know in my bones and no. Sis in the bones Schwa-. for all of us. But one of the main things work in that is don't be deceived what other people say about this. This aspect of having not having you feel it in your bones, it cannot be taken away in that way not that it is something else. You this thoroughly, I am this thoroughly without exception. Know. What can you say about that is not an awful lot. Okay I'll finish their then. No Okay I'll carry on I'll just I'll just go into the next puff. So the monk comes up with the Buddhist trump card. He says, or the the original. Colin. Of Buddhism, all beings have Buddha nature. Why doesn't the dog have it? Why doesn't the dog habit? Well, again, does the dog needs something like the nature? Co. that you know cocoa just comes over and gives me a lake. That's enough is good enough for her I. Don't see it going off into a Kona pondering you know the dog Do I have Buddha nature or not. No. Snow problem having it not having it. This is this new or the experiential aspect of being that thoroughly. Beautiful. And then Joshi just says something just because of his having comic consciousness. You know having comic consciousness. I. Mean. That's sad. Thing is living Sir way. We appear a certain way realizing certain things. We lived some things. You. Know. Karma is the result of everything that I have lived to this point. And more than likely that will continue through those same practices. Less common. But that but that still the same side of a dog been dot com help being who he or she is. Doesn't matter. Right from the beginning. So asking you guys does a dog have been an issue. What would you say? You know. I don't see any answers both you'll amid. So that's probably a good thing. Yeah I think I've Oh. There's is kind of interesting here to in the preface, poke a floating. Good on the war turn it turns. A diamond in the Sun has no fixed Shadl Cola. So again, with the know with this, this dog Buddha nature. Thing. Is Like we we look at, we experience life from certain sides. So, we look for the until act. Than somebody comes up until about experiential when we look at that size still the same, God. We look at it emotionally. That different pot comes up, we look at it. Psychologically, different pot comes up. relocated. Universally different aspect comes up and the same with a diamond. Do you know if you hold a diamond in the sun? It doesn't retain its Cola sometimes, it's coalesce sometimes this refraction from different. Different faces facing in different directions. You know, and again this, this is a life, is not just a one of thing. And is important to become holistic in terms of of that training. So anyway. At this point, I would like to open it up for Q. and A.. Or? Statements. So you can use the raise hand features we've been doing can also on mute yourself. If you want to jump in and I will open up. Chat. Deanne. Acadian. Yeah. In voicing turn black, you're describing the diamond in the son of the facets. The appearance be different depending on your outlook or your vantage point. That nothing is fixed. You're talking about. Nature coming a person's nature. Just the way they are A. Swallow out. It's it sounds like that is A. Fixed. Nature of bears to be. discerned. Examined slowly whether like it or not. It seems a little. I don't know I'm having a hard time reconciling. Fix Ursus. Changing all the time. Yeah. You know I mean how it is right now. That's that's the fixed paw. And then as things go along, it's not going to stay in that place as the changing Paul. I guess I'm speaking because I had a dramatic incident with someone yesterday this close to me and. Listening to today on thinking. Yes. Generally his nature. In I accept holy. Is Thinking through them, perhaps get another circumstance. Or if I'm standing in another place. I might perceive some ask your. Those things are true. You Know I. Mean the thing is he's not an either or is the going openly into a circumstances situation accent them as they are. But that doesn't preclude any different actions in undecided SA-. Free flow in. Interaction. It seems so easy. Sometimes, we get a crater angry to say, well, that's just the way it is. This easier it is in the short end, the shorter. Yeah. Yeah So. Yeah. Yeah. So I if somebody is coming in a very hard way in portable barriers in there. But you know leave a little bit open. So if you change. You know it doesn't have to fix, and this is the end unless it really has to be the end. What are we swirling hole in that moment? Yeah. The whole circumstance. It's never just about the person, it's a circumstance to. This is very obvious well, and I mean this is a circumstance now now, what to do within that circumstance? and. So you know then to to open up to that I'm not token about fixed outcomes. I, don't know the outcome of of life to start off with. You know what's going to happen at the end you know is the and finding out in that process and aspect of Golan. And then he interacting with people than this certain things that I've found a useful. Which is Try, and make this mutual. Good. Direction. Possessing career it. Does seem to work better in the long run. The. Actually across, it's like a co on. Your No is not, it's not like a call on, it is a call. Yeah, there's all kinds of. Yeah Okay I think. I'll try to absorb this. Thank you for your answer. Thank you do not. Stan. Emma, you can mute yourself. Ray Sheet. One. Could. A. Good ever. A rook deliver knowingly deliberately offense. Kick it. Yeah, I, mean you you. You GotTa look at that when he doesn't. It doesn't interest me in that way. Rock is rock. You know. But it can also tell me history too. You know the thing is may see Iraq Iraq, but it also can tell you as well. I. I seem to feel that everything has the Nitra. Then I Oswald is pretty nature but. Again. You know that's that's also Pau. Recalls is not some in separate. Nurse when you look into your own nature, can you find? I'm no. I'm not saying describe your own nature ball. Can you find? Basically, another way saying is unwritten. I see that in most most animals and plants and. Rocks. As well. Start, how is this different from the normal? Dia Christian view the. Dogs, the dogs and. Works works. Well. You know my life hasn't changed that motion. So as a Christian. So you know I. Mean the thing is, is that how you feel in your bones and you come you kinda sign or limited by a religion either. Have a lot more in common I. think with with with Christians Jewish people Muslims than I do people don't have a Because his appreciation of something you know. Appreciation for me. The the really turns things around. Thank you. Thank you. Congratulations on the on Emma's dog to. Okay. Thanks. Terry and Penny. Yourself. Morning. Hey morning a very. Very good good seeing you. In the in the trash. Could you say a little bit more about it was a hard time? Remember the exact were looking up? The. Yes. The yes mine. Does can't perceive. So, they got the esmine. Okay. No mine. no mindedness cannot understand. Yes, mindedness cannot perceive. WHO WE'RE? Working with, you know what? What, what would you say? If you get stuck on the affirmation aspect? All things have. Is that then you it's very difficult to to immerse with that. With the direct experience of going on forms become a lot more important. And being lost informs you know the I mean one of the things with this coal on new is the the some teaches in in the west now that instead of using the word mu using note. So. Whatever mental formation comes up, you cut it off. No. No so experience at direct experience comes in. which isn't bounded in in that way. You know whereas if quite often when we say, yes, we'll all. That's good. Now, he's out the way you know. Yes, he's done. That no is just like no matter what arises you cut it away and so that that morning abrasive. Aspect comes through the source that the nature of God or Buddha Nature. You know it doesn't really matter what what term you put on it. which is more of an A thing of finding out comes to the to the front. Kinetic says, thank you. Yeah. But it's not worth perceived and how that perception is being used because it's not a word that we quite, we quite often use an everyday language. How's he being used? And and is somewhat of a an an objective state. With perception. Usually. How I see in terms of ours used in English language. No. March you know that way you come grab hold of anything trying to grab glass. You know the window just hard to do. That kind of survived the. Like Sit Down and. have. Really delicious meal, and if I take the first fight and say as the Legis, that's great, and then as I go on, need the rest without having noticing, he added already if I. Say. You know tasted, enjoy it, and then by default never. Get Joy again, kind of do that wife. Say That's it yeah yeah. That's is interesting to me. I don't like that one among the last by and I think. It Tastes I. Didn't taste the rest of the meal you know. Near the hand you don't have in a bad meal and having to eat all of it. It keeps you keeps you aware, but it's not a pleasant thing. Stir to. Mark Mute Yourself. AM Good morning, rushing and. I wonder this couple points this that. Cause me. Concern in deals, a Jochen, his answers. So in the first. Answer. He responds. Knowingly purposely he purposefully of vans. Yeah. So. I just wonder about the word knowingly knowingly to me implies some sort of self awareness. if knowing doing something that means where. Yeah. But I wonder if you come in. White. Dog. I mean, my dog doesn't have much self awareness adult. Think it just. Comes eats and go to sleep leave in exit. So Does the Doghouse self-awareness. Yeah I mean, this is a good question for you is to is to look that. You know. I mean, seriously I mean, I can say all kinds of words, but for you, that's You remember with knowing this, knowing you bombs which doghouse. You have it. and. Then there's the cognitive aspect too. So that that's the you might say is reconciled, but he's not really reconcile it until he feels right for you as a human being. Thank you. Work on the other. The other point of that particular answer is purposefully offense. Yeah. The were purposefully. To me. Implies. self-awareness sort of like. Yeah. John. Example John. Example Montana. So we can presume that John. Knows, he's doing what he's doing is saying what he said, they liberally wraps with the intent to offend. Of wraps just to be himself whatever it is. But. A dog. Out Is it dog purposely. Offend what is offending? A is the. Jury. In the book of. Talk, about offending being. Defense in Buddhism is to be diluted. You've read she-she's book, you read the yeah. So. Comment on. That that concept of purposefully offense. Yeah. Yeah, this this is, this is why a grabbed a grabbed me. You know. and. Again that offended is. look out with the people do that. It's like you're gonNA feel that in yourself. How does that happen? How does that occur 'cause defending some some things won't be offended to other people. So for oneself you gotTa pick that up. Now. If you know, I'm not trying to get out of this. The thing is it does this is the kind of thing that you got to come up for yourself. I can't make a case for it. because. That was exactly the thing that grabbed me. You know when? You're. Version? Yeah. My own expiration is as again. Things are exactly as they are whether it offends or not. Whether it's knowing or unknowing. And so that's the starting point than what I do with that is is the secondary aspect. That's what you'll. Hugh. Joshi gone sorry. Why would join us the purposefully as opposed to just leaving it at. Knowingly. Well. It wouldn't grab me if he if he if he. Had, a Pope Castilian. Grateful for that word, you know whether whether it's true translation. That's another aspect of it. bought. But that was the hook that got me that I really had to work on myself. And this is one of those things just in in Buddhism is the. Will in most religions to you can't tell somebody else, but it's not an escape clause. So that's something that you feel yourself in that way MS, some people will just blow over this line and just go. Oh Yeah. Fine. But for others you get hooked by and that's why there's like seven hundred fifty collins hooked by Wong. Become. Very, easy. So I have worked out. He may be an I'm useless. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Can. We've got quite a discussion going through group chat, but this is Question from why is Donald? Trump have buddha nature. Look look. No I understand swapping. Okay. You don't know how to keep it down. You don't have to. What what do you do if you can't keep it down? Vomited up? Dogs. Eat their vomit. You know just went on and on, but here's one. Vote seems to me if the dog didn't have you WANNA talk. Sir? No carrier seems to me. If the dog didn't have self awareness, it wouldn't be able to learn reward versus consequences. My dog purposely takes clothing off the bed knowing it will offend and gets my attention. Is this the same thing self-awareness? Does it equal ascension being was too much for Sunday morning. A. Weather she yeah, I mean. The the self awareness of it. I mean this being, you could say that self awareness, but then this. Object to one of of of self-criticism or self create drama. I could be a different way, etc. those two aspects, obviously a dog noses ally. It interacts etc. Self-awareness. She knows that's really Haba Grass. I'm always learning from from. The, many as we said the. Is Like dogs, animals did not use tools. But I've seen bird used tools. Is that we're always finding stuff out I'm in many ways irrelevant. Just look at how how they do and how they interact. And I mean definitely animals have empathy. You know. I mean, it's just like. Both both my dogs, cocoa, and Honeywood. When when somebody was having a hard time, they go over and they would, they would console. The person there would be. They'll I've therapists? They go over that and they they make a difference you know is it wed? Where'd you know we tried to find what? What human being soon, how great we are. A lot of those animals have had similar things. So. But for each one of us is look at how that arises in ourselves. Why have what we call? Self Awareness. Ego? Delusion. Etc. just look at how those things operate in our lives become clear on those things than they don't go off on automatic. Would there is there is a way that we can deal with those things. So it limits. It limits suffering, not just human suffering suffering that occurs in our environment to. You know. But seeing how this operates. We see some lot animals too. I ever. took it out from the Amazon jungle in. Colombia, make without who? Good? Light. We, like to ask. How I be with these consciousness awareness. Long tank. I live in London. In Switzerland. You just like you to expand a little bit for what do you mean by worthies? What do you mean a borderless conscious do have kind of a word is perhaps. The. To me, that's that that's that's unknown. Find out I mean, obviously is an animal or. See my dog is the I see that it or She sees his taste. Touch smells thanks. has certain senses the the Amel slow with. Like, earthquake consciousness she picks it up quick than I, do. She will point point to things that I don't see sense is different in different ways. She. has a highly developed sense of empathy. which is also something the the human beings have. You know she she. She interacts. is in whatever way she can't. Yeah. So the the consciousness is that. but it's different. You know she can't communicate the bully. There there are different ways. With other animals, you know I see I. See even ought by the other day, I took a picture of of the circle of bird prints. wishes. Him stand some somebody guy. Well, he could have been a mating ritual, but this communication is all kinds of communication that animals have and I think rather than placing animals is to find out, you know placing animals is having this or that find out what they have and learn from them. You know just like we learn from our environment and learning from our environment than we don't try superimpose something, the the The may be detrimental to the to the life in that area. That's what I would say on that. I am a little bit. You. You're breaking not her when Mark Savvy. What I'm saying is when you talk about Burgers in the manual, you said said he's doing something Gervis. Saying about awareness consciousness him. All. On the essence where we talk about could cosmic consciousness. Wordless is what we connect with it. So when when you get into these, you realize a bit confused because the benefits that lamb hook up with you bow I'm of take too much. I. Might Send Your by best from here yet. Yeah same premier. Drove Louis collecting the. Technology hitting that my son's so late. So the gets you from the beginning. But I would like to say. From that I come across. Would you? Like. Do participate more than because. I am doing some kind of workshops are our can request to healing combined. We wait to ancestor knowledge in general. So combining a fight to stay up. That is. The clowns. What's Up Yet did not know pronouncing correctly, but he's the stadium plans at least applications I'm especially during this time and I hope I'm not. Getting off the mark. Concerned about what we leaving today with this club damage. Actual Piano that q a g you are to the. Light and I think we should be together together and get. A. Touch, yeah. Yeah. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Gestapo. Thank you. Brian. Bruce. Bruce, wherever you are. On base. A. Yeah Yeah. Surfing, thank you for your talk today. Rocio. Now, all the questions who? I was GONNA ask some different thing by then people are talking about awareness. So I, just WanNa make sure about this. You know from me. It seems. That The. Buddha minder whatever it means he was awaken Oh. Yeah. Yeah. We'll. And then what does that awake meaning in this everybody had? Yeah and. So. On that level Yes, everybody. I'd like a Dog House lucky whistle and the dog looks and goes. At and I would too. Yeah, exactly. And that's like this. Innate sort of awareness that was. Yeah I get. Really work comes from. Yeah. Go ahead. Did you know I mean you? You say, yes. As far as I'm concerned, you saying the truth is each one of his is is born with this, but the problem is we don't value it. That that's the biggest thing is the we want something else you know. I. Remember sit down on the beach in Mexico you know do this day of natural awareness and looking out on this beautiful. Bay? Come in from darkness into light and. This is amazing if only. You know. When did that come from? This is paradise. But. The mind wanted some tells, how can it be this? How can a person like may be awakened? You know when I'm awake see hear smell taste touch you know. But it is wearing that aspect how which is the main part of practice. That's aspect again of a Buddhism where we have that precept being toxic hated. And the biggest part of that, you know obviously drugs, alcohol that chemists stuff is is important to pay attention to. But the biggest thing that's going on in a momentary basis is our introduction of intoxicants. You know being this wisdom virtue of the wake and one to thus nece esprit high. Falutin you know is you know how come I want something else? How come I think that should be a certain way how come I think that I should get more reward for him doing when the whole world's coming in on a momentary faces? Know just our emphasis is on something else. That isn't here. But sounds good. You know it's just like with advertising, they're always trying to get us to get something else. Rather than us, what we already have in abundance. Human, beings. Yeah that's the thing as. It is the thing. And it's also interesting that while or while you were saying, this is great, but I wish are Totally relate with that the. There's a part of me that that awakeness says that's watching. That is otherwise out I? Know. That was at yet. It's even watching that. Yeah, and. So. What I like about. Say, what I like about these. Is At. Will you talked about it was that You know the mind wants to know something? Yeah. So you're might teacher and you say Bruce. Blah Blah Blah. And I go. Sweeteners Blah Blah. Blah. Blah. Blah can. Hold onto that in I use that. From now on, you know while Blah and then at some point, it doesn't really work. Or I might forget and I want to hear it again like Roche, you told me the other day. Told me something I forgot what you told me. You know but. The other thing in your time somebody else's that I personally have to go like you can tell me something but I personally have go and verify for myself yet otherwise was. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, not. Enough. Yeah. I mean that that's that's the thing is the you know we have so much teaching from all over the place, but then the actual doing of that I'm very fine if that teaches true not is important Pau. Of, very fine stays in the level of words. That's the embodiment aspect. To do that, take some work. You know that's the that's the tricky fall. And obviously none of us like going down dead ends. You know. Unfortunately for myself is that I've gone down a lot of dead ends. You know too. So. I. Realize those things don't work, but the me usually I've done those gloriously. I put everything into it in a recent dead end. If. Okay. Now, Gola energy now put it in different into a different direction. I don't know if he's right or wrong. It just feels right. Just go down, go down that until. Till it feels right in my own bones and at that point is fine. You know I'd I'd like to say to people as we will make mistakes we'll get stuck in areas is just par for the course. But if we wholeheartedly do it. Then, there's of a chance of of of working through those things. You wholeheartedly go through some. Then you realize and I never have to go there again. It's not like you know I don't if I should sit. You know. May. May May. Maybe. Entail you jump Pogba one side of the other and thoroughly doing you know. And that's the. That's the beauty of his whole heartedness. I will take this direction. Best of best of my ability. And I'm not going to keep on going. Will this right? Is Right? CZYZ? Right? Is His right zips. Right? You know just. Do it, and then okay. That wasn't the best directional try in this direction that we'll say this anything wrong with that. But we use that that Howard cosell of the mind way too much. Just get on with it. Do it. Take take direction do. If you, and if you begin to more trust in your instinct, your heart than those things become clearer rather than you know some descriptions that people have given of this really good place over that. Maybe. After. A while is the. Tie. That really good place helping actually doesn't really exist. All things are saying are very A. Really about me because I, really. It. Might have Buddha mind with something like you know Super Special. Working with voices, kind of helped me in a way because like for instance, I, might work with anger like. Now. Now would I do I, walk down the street and I'll feel something I go? Can I talk to that voice? It's feeling this thing right now you know. oftentimes, it's angry at just people walking down the street or something you know. And, that anger is something that I don't know to. Me Seems like a mistake like I don't understand Raisin Angra I've actually talked to that voice that voices just very pure and very strong, and it's like I'm angry I am angry everything here. I don't care. Everything makes me angry. That doesn't Mean that said that's a voice and that's a very strong voice and it's not right or wrong. It's. It's there. And then You, know me trying to place it somewhere get rid of it. Just a mess Zada, some has it up. Anyway. Yeah means are in that in that. You know places that you try to understand what it is and that an important. and. Usual usually when when that occurs is not a desire to escape it as a a desire to really learn from it and see how it operates in your life, and you will find that out. And then again is it doesn't go off on automatic. So easily you know. Yeah. If. A. Good seen, you. Love. Your life can. Come, you're shaving your head now. Well it's a long story. I was used issues in my my razor than ran out of battery. Power. So, then. I, try to finish it off and I couldn't. So I had to use business. And so so I ended up unit shave the whole thing though so. I. Have just been whole. Shorter, story. Bursts. A. Twelve thirty Roberto will take one last question. Go ahead Roberto. May maybe should to inform question. Is. Just a ago back to one Arthur said, and then this whole discussion to chat about dogs I don't think we're just talking about dog. No, no, no, no. No guarantee. We're also talking about some things that is completely antipathetic to your thing, and how do you sort of course with fame like that? Right, yes. Start off with this one. It put a nation. It's not clear clear quantify here. Then that becomes clear. I mean that sounds like a weird thing to say, but in my experience, the Maury understand this maury understand that. tolkien about. Swallowing whole up. You know what? The president is the at Condo, anything else that that's Wa. That's what he is. That's what he's doing. This I doesn't mean that I have to believe in what what he's doing and he does some good things too. But it's a reality, how do I work with that reality and if I see that in him, I know that I've got that in May. So I can do that bit of work that and that you know that much I can do. But on the other hand is the I don't really want to spend my time hate and people. because. That takes a lot of energy. You know I can hate behaviors and try and work on those in myself. You know because I know with things like I hate and. That kind of thing. it. It takes. It takes up a lot of energy, and if I can just learn how that operates I can I can short circuit that and I can start to understand when that arises in in myself for the people and I can deal with a one way or another. So it's a bit of power that rather than being powerless at somebody doing something else out that. Right. Yards. Here's because it's going to be evitable even though everybody. Assumes meetings. I think practicing the precepts of YOU'RE GONNA count counter people, a lot of people that yeah yeah. Yeah, definitely. I mean, you have to walk out the door. In fact. Somebody in here help maybe. Go to look at it rise in that too. Yeah Thank you. Thank you. Extra. Okay. This is A. Steph takes over with. Open. The open MIC. Would be nice to do open my. I.

138 - Sticky Hair Monster

We have chats around different topics, podcast episodes, and all things related to Buddhism life in general. So if you're looking for a community. Join us. there. Now let's get started with the podcast episode. So in the last podcast episode, the Zenko on shared is called Joe Shoes. Mu. And I want to share a couple of thoughts about this. The the Cohen itself goes like this Joe Shoe was a famous Chinese and master who lived in Joe Shoe the province from which he took his name one day a troubled monk approached him intending to ask the master for guidance a dog walked by the monk asked Joe Shoe has that dog a Buddha nature or not? The monk had barely completed as question when Josue shouted Mu. So I want to share some thoughts and he starts come from the Book Zenko on's, and this is a book written by Gyo May Kubo say the of all the Cohen's Joe. Shoes Mu is the most famous. It's extremely popular with Zen Masters who frequently assign it to novices if the student tens properly to business mu comes to resemble a hot iron ball stuck in his throat, he can either swallow it nor spit out the importance of shoes mu is it's succinct one syllable revelation of Buddhism. So little background here, and and and again, all of these thoughts come in from the book Zen Cohen's Baio Make Kubo say. He says, Mu, is the negative symbol in Chinese meaning not or no thing Mu. Is also a basic concept in oriental philosophy. There is a relative mu and an absolute mu, the relative mu and Chinese characters is the opposite of you. The letter you which means is the absolute mu of Zen Buddhism transcends is and is not in order to understand this Cohen. It is necessary to be aware of this distinction when the monk asked, Shoshu has that Dog Abboud nature not he was asking not only from the standpoint of his own troubled mind. But from the Basic Buddhist teaching that all beings have Buddha Nature Joe shoe realized this his Mu as an answer was a blow aimed at breaking or untying the monks attachment to that teaching. The essence of Buddha's teaching is non attachment. All human troubles and sufferings without exception are due to attachment even attachment to the idea of non attachment is attachment. Joe Shoe wanted the monk to transcend the relative world transcend the teachings, Transcend Mu, transcend Buddhism, and gain the free and independent world of enlightenment. Satori or enlightenment is this new dimension or perspective in life ordinary human life has always attached to the relative the is and the is not good and bad right and wrong. But life itself is constantly changing the condition of society changes right and wrong often changes. Every situation is different according to time and place. So static concepts are not appropriate to life this thus mu is crucial offers no surface upon which the intellect can fasten. The word mu must be experienced as the world of. Mu. So those are the thoughts from the book Zen Cohen's Baio Make Kubo say regarding the specific Cohen Joe Shoes Mu. And I I wanted to share this. Cohen because as the book mentions, it's most popular, perhaps the most famous of the Cohen's. But to have a little bit of background, you need to understand the answer. So essentially, what's happening here is you have a teacher who's being asked a question by a student by a novice monk and the question is so out of place because. You know the Buddhist teaching of Buddha nature is that all beings have buddha nature. So it's like someone coming law coming along and asking a very obvious question which he should know the answer to according to the teaching that all beings have Buddha nature. The answer to the question does a dog have Buddha nature is obviously yes. But josue knew that he was asking this question that should be obvious. So instead of giving the obvious answer, he gave the answer that the monk was not expecting by shouting Moo or no, or no thing. And in the tradition of Cohen's and in the tradition of Zan, this is kind of the shock and all approach the shock and awe is that that's not what I was expecting. So here you have this novice monk asking a question, get an answer that he's not expecting. And it leaves him confused and that's the exact state that Cohen's and oftentimes Zen in general want to leave you in because it's trying to break you free of the conceptualization 's that you're making in your own mind. So if I know the obvious answer is yes and I'm immediately the hearing shouting that the answer is no. What that does is at least me thinking wait a second but I, thought you know I I'm guessing that that's exactly what the monk did right away he was like wait but but you know and trying to recall but this teaching says this, and that's exactly what the the master would want to leave you. Very confused for a moment because in that confusion, you transcend the world of is or isn't To me, it's almost a way of saying. Let's entertain the question again, it was even an appropriate question. What is a was it a relevant? Because if it's not what benefit does it give you if if I were to answer the question for you and I think that's what the the master is in hoping to do here he's not answering the question. While he is answering the question with your not expecting, which is the only thing you can do to make someone really start to think and I would suppose that maybe this monk with time could walk away and realize, okay we'll that was dumb to ask him that because his answer doesn't matter what if the answer is now would if the answer is yes. So what what does that say about you and your Buddha nature I think that's along the lines that this Cohen was trying to go about at least that's how it it makes sense to me. So I like to think of this one and apply it to. My Day to day life you know the answers that we often seek to find about life are you could you could almost say it's silly questions. And I've experienced this firsthand right going through a faith crisis and then becoming a seeker and looking for another world view that might make more sense when you're on that path of seeking and you're looking for answers to life's big questions. Buddhism comes along and it does this. It gives you the answer Mu, which is to say you're not GonNa get the answer that you wanted and in not having the answer that you wanted you're only left with one option. Let's entertain the question. Where did the question come from? Does that question even matter what would happen if you did answer the question you know then what and I think that's what this Cohen does. It immediately brings you back to wait. Let me let me think about that question a little bit more. So, that is the Cohen Joe. Shoes Mu Hopefully, this is a co on that made you kind of think and will you'll remember this and future future instances where questions come to mind You can assign a little bit more value to the question a little bit less value to the answer and that to me is Buddhism in a nutshell it's all about the questions not so much about the answers. Okay. So with that said, I do want to share a couple of thoughts about a story old Buddhist story and I'm GONNA call this sticky hair monster I. Think the original story is called Prince. Five weapons. And I might be wrong but I, think this comes from the stories or tales I can't remember I came across it a long time ago. But I came across it again in a book called Buddha at bedtime. So, in the Book let me make sure your Buddha at bedtime. It has a lot of little stories and I I've been reading these stories for years. Now to my kids at night I went through a phase where every night we would read one. It's been a while since I've read one but one of the stories that really stuck to me is the story of. Sticky. Hair, sticky hairy monster, and it's become kind of a fun story that I revisit and play the game often with my youngest daughter who's four and we play this game and sticky monster, and she's trying to escape from sticky monster but I think there's a really valuable lesson in the story. So I want to share the story with you. This comes directly from the book Buddha Bedtime. And the story goes like this. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon when a boat. Prince Hector came from overseas into the harbor and before the young Prince left the vessel. The captain warned Him Your Highness while you have been away training to be a warrior, an evil monster called sticky hair has come to live in the forest. So I advise you not to take that route to the palace instead go the long way home around the mountains. Thank you for your advice replied hector but I'll be fine I. WanNa get home before sunset. And I have all my weapons I need them after all he thought I'm a trained warrior. I'm not afraid of a silly old monster and the young prince started a strode boldly on into the woods. Just as prince actor was beginning to think that the monster didn't exist he reached to clearing in the forest and there stood the most gigantic ugly creature. He had ever seen the monster was as big as a house and completely covered in matted hair. He looked like a living breathing very horrible haystack. The creature had a huge head and he stared at the prince with is as big as dinner plates too big Orange Tusk stuck out of his enormous mouth and his teeth were green and revolting his belly was big. And round like a beach ball and covered in large Pale orange spots, gir-. Sticky hair. What do you think you're doing in? My would little man you look like a tasty morsel and I'm going to eat you for dinner I'm not afraid of you you horrible old monster replied Hector I'm a warrior. I can easily defeat you with my sword I. Dare you to fight me swiftly as the wind the prince leaped forward and thrust his sword at the monster. But to his surprise, it just stuck to the creatures sticky hair. So the Prince left his sword there quickly rolled out of the way got to his feet and grabbed his bow. he shot Arrow after Arrow at the monster but like the sword, each one just became tangled in his sticky hair the prince was astonished ha ha ha boom sticky hair. You're a very funny little man. You'll never beat me then he shook himself from his ugly head down to his big smelly toes and all the princes Eros dropped down to the ground hector now had only his. Club left for protection. So he swung it at the at sticky hair with all his might, but it too became caught in the monsters hair and was pulled from the prince's strong grip. I'm not defeated yet. He shouted my weapons may be useless but I'm young and strong and I'll fight you with my fists. He cried as he ran and leapt on the monster and got firmly stuck. Even now as Prince Hector dangled from the creatures sticky hair, he continued to act fearlessly so much so that the monster started to wonder exactly what gave him such courage why are you not afraid of me little man I could gobble you up and a snap and a crack. He threatened fiercely still hanging from the monsters tangled hair hector was busy thinking about what to do next all of a sudden it came to him. He realized that he would have to use his brains to outwit the creature instead of his weapons. So he shouted up to sticky hair. I'll tell you. I am not afraid of you. My skin is coated in poison. So if you eat me, you'll die I dare you to eat me sticky hair didn't believe hector first but the more the prince insisted the more worried the monster became I'd like to eat him but I can't risk getting poisoned. He muttered reluctantly he pulled the prince from his matted coat and set him on the ground unharmed well, fearless little man you've. You've convinced me. You're telling the truth and I don't WanNa die so I suppose I'll have to let you go. He said grudgingly. Hector was delighted not only had he did the monster and saved his own life but he had also learned an important lesson that the most powerful defense had been inside him all along his own intelligence, not his strength and not his weapons. Looking up into the monster's big is the young prince said. I'm very grateful to use sticky hair, not just for releasing me but also for teaching me that I don't have to fight to be brave strong and clever. Would you like to know my secret? If you promise not to eat me, I'll tell you as a reward for sparing my life surprised sticky hair agreed although the monster had never been defeated until that day he had always been frightened of people. In fact, he had only attacked people to stop them from attacking him but now the creature was to learn to be fearless like hector. So he let the young. Prince become his teacher and friend and the strangest thing happened the more sticky hair learned how to use his brain the less he felt the need to harm others using his intelligence brought the creature great happiness, and gradually he was transformed from scary lonely monster into a friendly forest giant Prince. Hector, let all the local people know that the monster had completely changed and gradually they became his trusted friends bringing him food and living with him in peace and harmony, and the new eager to please sticky hair repaid their kindness by protecting them and guiding travelers safely through the forest. And then the book goes on to say, sometimes, it feels like there's no option. But to fight our way out of the difficult situation, a wise person knows that it's their intelligence, not their physical strength that will help them to win in the end. So. That's the version from the children's book Buddha Bedtime. The original story the way it was it's been shared and passed down the story of the print of Prince Five. Weapons. Is Essentially, stadium that The Of all the weapons you can possess the one that is more powerful than all the others is the mind and that's the old story of how Prince five weapons didn't kill sticky hair but instead taught him the ways of peace and enlightenment and their other little minor variations of the story So all in all the story of sticky monster for me has been a fun way to convey this concept to my kids that the moral of the story is that often the only way to win a fight is by not fighting. It's by using your your brain, your intelligence, and to me this somewhat echoes a little bit from the last podcast episode the idea of nothing being something oftentimes by doing nothing we are doing something. I think that in our culture were. Of the mindset of conquering of overcoming, and sometimes we approached Buddhism in this very same way it's like we're going to overcome the EGO and we're going to conquer are. The nece conquer are negative attributes, my thoughts and feelings and emotions that I don't like I'm going to force them out away from me. I'm going to win over them. And when we do that, we're setting ourselves up for the same mistake that the prince and sticky monster had which is sticky monster can't be beat. You can approach sticky monster with all the weapons you have, and the result is going to be the same they're going to get stuck in a doesn't do anything to this big monster. So, the harder that you try the harder harder that you fight. The it doesn't do anything you're still going to fail. But. What happens when we approached the situation from rather than overcoming with the understand with the with the attitude of trying to understand and trying to befriend, and this reminds me of the quote Pame. A show Dron says meditation practice isn't about trying to throw ourselves away and become something better. It's about befriending who already are. And I encounter this quite a bit in my interactions with podcast listeners and supporters who reach out and want to discuss specific situations or stances that they're going through in their lives and encounter this concept quite a bit with anger for example, where somebody is experiencing a set of circumstances causes and conditions that they're experiencing anger in their life and often they're angry at the fact that they're angry. Or you know if you're upset, you might be upset if you're not at peace and just kind of this interesting place to be because the only real piece that we can have comes when were at peace with the fact that we're not at peace and the reason that works is because life is always changing again like the Tetris game analogy. There's a new piece on the horizon every time the new piece shows up it's a whole new game. You're always plane the new game. And, that's exactly how life works. Life is always changing. You're always dealing with something new today it might be the loss of a job or the loss of a loved one or the flat tire on the road or the CO worker that is annoying you or you might be dealing with a really good job and you're happy with this or. You're dealing with a worldwide pandemic or whatever it is. Right it's it's it's always changing. And and the past the fact that it's always changing means you always get to revisit this and say, okay now, how do I play the game? And, and you can literally do this minute by minute because every minute life has changed and all it takes his awareness to see that. So, when were angry at the fact that we're angry? Were compound in the situation anger is natural and if I'm experiencing anger and I'm okay with the fact that I'm experiencing anger then I haven't there's no problem. Sure angry but there's no problem with being angry. So life is good I'm a piece if I and before I, know it the causes and conditions of the anger might be gone and then anger's gone and I'm okay that I'm not angry. So again I am a piece at peace when I'm angry I'm a piece when I'm not angry and that to me is at the heart of what this story of sticky monsters trying to get at its the The twist I think in the story is that we are sticky monster or sticky monster, his US right I think Robert Wright talks about this in his book why Buddhism is true he talks about the modules of the mind and the concept of the modules of the mind is the understanding that I have many different aspects of me that make me me. There's the me that is in the role of of apparent of a dad of a brother of a of a son of a podcast of all the things that I do that make me these are the various modules of the mind. And within these modules, there are the thoughts and the feelings and the emotions and the memories. These are what what Buddhism we would call the five SCON-. Does right the different things that make you you and yet you're not any of them. But when I understand that about myself if I realized that I'm experiencing anger. It's something that I'm experiencing but I'm also the observer of the experience and I'm also the one that that feels I like this or I don't like this and all of that's okay. If just observe it. And what it leaves me with this this important understanding that just like with sticky monster the monster is the monster can't change the fact that it's ugly that a stinks that it's hair is sticky are all the things that are unpleasant about it. But what I can change as when I understand that this thing isn't going away and I can't fight it away I'm left with one option. I can befriend it and try to understand it and all of this happens by using the weapon of the mind. Not The traditional weapons you would think of as weapons, and that's what happens in that story. So to me the moral of the story. Is that I am the prince, but I am also sticky monster certain parts of my mind when I'm experiencing anger. There it is. That's the big sticky monster. I'm angry and I don't like that I'm angry will there I am I'm fighting the thing that I cannot win now but if I mckay that I'm angry now I'm piece again and there's the two things as the prince and they're sticky monster there's The observer of. The anger am experiencing and there's the anger I'm experiencing, and those are the two things they can sit there side by side perfectly apiece in content because there's nothing wrong with being angry there's nothing wrong with sitting next to the monster there's nothing it's it's fighting the monster that creates the problem I. think it's the same with our thoughts and feelings and emotions. It's fighting my emotions being angry that I'm angry that aggravates the problem. So, that's the key takeaway for me with this specific lesson with the story of of sticky hair sticky hair monster. And I I've been working on this story for months. Now with like I said with my own kids and and we play this game called sticky monster and I'm sticky monster and they're all trying to fight me will they can never beat me and always trap them, and then I hold them and they've learned that the trick has they have to start asking me questions where are you from sticky monster? How old are you sticky monster? A feel today and as they talk to me, then I start answering their questions and I loosen the grip and then at the end of the game were sitting next to each other and they keep talking to me and that's when they can slowly they have to slowly walk away. But in the game that we play if they tried to run or they try to escape me or they try to fight me they, they don't win So I'm hoping that with time this little game and this little story will transition into a deep understanding of the nature of life with them and the relationship they have with their own thoughts and feelings emotions. And I think that's the final thought that I would wanNA share here. Is that what we're not trying to change our thoughts and feelings and emotions as we experienced them as we're experiencing them, all we're trying to do is change the relationship we have with our thoughts, feelings and emotions as we experience them. Because to me, that's the key. That's it. That's the. The difference of running and fighting sticky monster and just exerting all your energy. That's pointless. Casual Never GonNa win versus sitting and talking to sticky monster using your mind and understanding and befriending, and again to me, the twist is the recognition that I'm actually both I'm the prince and I'm sticky monster and been fighting myself this whole time, which makes the fight that much more ridiculous when I think about it that way. So That's all they have to share about that concept of sticky monster and the relationship we have to our thoughts and feelings and emotions. So. Before ending this podcast episode, I want to leave you with another Zenko on to think about And this is one that I think I've mentioned before I can't remember I'm reaching that stage where I can't remember what things I've said before and what things I haven't. But I, guess it never hurts to mention things more than once. So the Zen Koan I'd like to leave with you at the end of this podcast episode think about is called no beard. and. It goes like this. Why? Kuan complained when he saw a picture of bearded bodey Dharma why hasn't that fellow a beard? And that's it. That's the end of that Cohen. All right. I'll share my thoughts on that one in the next podcast episode as always. Thank you for listening until next time.

Momofuku Kawi Pre-Opening Diaries, Vol. 2 | The Dave Chang Show

"Yeah. Welcome to the day. Jane show part of the rim of podcast network, presented by major Vilma Mia. Today's episode of special pre-opening diaries, volume two with under par and the opening of Cali restaurant on the fifth floor of Hudson yards. Apologies for all the background noise. We recorded this during the construction a couple of weeks ago right before the birth of my son. So there's firearms orientational, there's all kinds of shit going on in the background. But we didn't really have any time. So we took my about like forty five minutes of Joe's time, and we're really lucky to get any of Joe's time to convince her to record again she's going through so much right now. And a lot of Joe struggles right now are around her identity and the Denny of food as a chef she's Korean, but I can tell you personally that there's many facets to it for starters kringle Zine is seen as this inferior thing to Japanese. Although it's obviously a lot cooler historic. Quickly, you know, Japan colonized Korea, and there's been strain relations and a now's not the time or place to talk about that relationship, but it's a complicated. One at that people's idea of Creon food around the world is also trapped in a bubble in a lot of different ways. Take Sydney, for example, the Korean food there is largely defined by one or two ways immigration. So the food is stuck in this time period where those immigrants arrived. So it's hard to change. It's hard to kill the very thing that you need to kill because you're trying to preserve if that made any sense. So sometimes the way forward is to kill the very thing you're trying to preserve and I think that's where Joe's at right now. And that's a very very difficult. Obstacle to get around. Another thing about Joe shoes. Not just Crean. She's crying American and all of this confusion. Plus the pressure of opening the restaurant leading a team for the first time the financial pressures, the scheduling, the PR shoots the. Photographs all of the stuff is all new it leads to a boiling point where she describes in this episode. That is I think a defining moment for her. It's one of the hardest things I think she's ever endured to this point. And it's been very difficult for me as someone that wants to help and protect to see her go through ultimately, though, it's also thrilling because you get to see Joel figure out in real time all of these problems and trying to prioritize the things she needs to figure out. It's also scary as hell anyway, I think you'll hear the second part of this podcast. I don't understand what I'm talking about. It was incredibly refreshing and fresh for us to go over to talk through what just happened not too long ago. This was literally ten eleven days ago, something that were still going through every day conversation similar to what we just talked about in this podcast. So I'm glad that we got it out of the way. I'm really. That Joe's learning to communicate this about who she is. Because it also not only adds to responsibilities. I do believe it's cathartic for her and for me and for entire team of Cowie. So I will stop talking and let you hear this conversation with Joe where we literally got what we could in. What was an insane day of getting the restaurant ready? So thank you Joe for being so brave talk about these things and here, she is. And you talking again too much volume to pre-opening diaries colored. Collar. Let's go back to the first seventy two hours of moving into this restaurant. You practice would JJ Josh keeping in touch with their team recipe testing, you guys cooked a lot getting work done. Looking really busy looking meal. What's the difference between real busy and in getting shit done? I think ESO much in your mind that you can't focus on one dish at a time. Just trying to do everything once and you don't get anything done. I think that's like looking busy and we're getting shit done. Is you plan out? Take one step at a time and get shit done one at a time knowing you're going to fail or not hoping is won't fail. But knowing you're totally cool. Yeah. Feelings actually good. I learned that this you have to fail to see. From my vantage point as busy and sort of not even involve that much. You guys were doing stuff and making dishes to not to fail. I think that's the mindset that it's very obvious or natural for them to be like, oh, of course. I love my food to be good and be successful. Make you don't wanna fail. But that I don't know that we talk a lot now with our managers that just start just put it out. Don't don't calculate it. Just put it out. And then we'll discuss later. So that's why I think after that a lot of dishes are coming on now. Because it wasn't. There was like a real writer's block almost right, right? And I think without speaking out at turn or too much a lot of it was you being just fucking overwhelm. What are you being overwhelmed with everything? Cooking menu dealing with managers. Emails Sturge ruling. Right ordering I want this ingredient. But I can't get it because they don't want to deliver it. I wanna use creating greedy. But I can't source it like all the stuff and you've been actively sourcing gradients for how many months? Let's say I started like four months four months, and you've been trying to make your ingredients now to get ahead. So like building a surplus of the stuff that you can make. You know, it's it's been a lot. Still having a private life. And then gearing up for something that you're scared of you never been a chef never have you been executive chef before, of course, not you've been offered opportunity to be chef or sous-chef somewhere turned it down. And you've always let the restaurant that offered you in right? Right. I think for the restaurant they shouldn't have someone they can grow. So I left that was time for me to go. Right. And I know you, and I was like, you know, we've talked about this in the past like, oh, Joe can't leave something if she knows how to do it. So we're going to give her something that she's never going to know the more you work at this the less, you're feeling confident that you're no anything. Am I that feeling of being overwhelmed really Pete that what time was after I taste thing with you here in this? And when we moved them. Yeah. And in my head that the menu is pretty good. But realizing that there was no there's no love to the menu that we wanted to do and just looking at the menu. It was meant it was created to impress someone. It wasn't for Cali and realizing that we weren't on safe spot. We're actually found hill. What do you mean? I think just my mindset that for me doing this menu. As I have to put shit up on the menu. Like, it wasn't personalized wasn't you? It wasn't my menu. It was more. Like what David like what foodies might leg? It was menu for some. It wasn't many for me. It's a really hard thing to see. Right. 'cause you're like, what do you mean? I've been doing this for months a year. How the fuck have. I come to the realization that I'm not doing what I wanna do when she saying the dish that I wanna do yet. You're still saying it's not who I am. Can you explain that? I think the biggest part was you know, after the first tasting with you, even bad. So how real bad used at me down privately to talk to me. And you said your food tastes like fear. And that really got me thinking. Whatever been cooking were how have I been cooking? Like am. I really cookie. And use it when you said cook like you're gonna cook for your grandma just cook for your family like cook with love. Wow. That how can I forget that? Like, the most important thing about cooking that clicked and the next day. We what happened that day later because it's not like eleven third. You've been cooking all day moving shit around. Not only it's just crazy like literally like moving shit, like unpacking stuff sorting everything out of new people coming in. It's madness. The worst possible scenario is a shit. I gotta tasting right now in the kitchen that we're just breaking not optimal conditions. So after that conversation. I was really embarrassed as a cook. Losing that most important thing about cooking is cooking with love and care. And losing that it really broke me. So I feel so bad. I'm glad that we had that conversation. So after the conversation event to the kitchen and about midnight and then restart cooking. You're like just cook. Whatever you wanna cook. So I mean, stinky, soybeans, Stu wad you make that says the comfort food you grew up eating it. But I mean, like why that was the first thing you like all right? I got a cook. Something that I want to not only eat I want to cook for other people, maybe my own family. Why did you choose? That was like a Proust's like thing, you know, Madelene thing. It's my favorite dish. That my mom makes me. And if people ask me, what do I wanna eat if I die? I was at my mom's. So he being stew, which is always better one day later, always better next day, and you made the yeah. And I made a pork belly that got sabotage. Because he burned it. It was delicious. And then I come back. It's my fault. And I made a Korean cabbage soup. Very tumble. Very humble. A couple of chefs started making stuff everyone cook. Which is cooking cooking. Not our Indy. Cooking like real home cooking. What's the difference? Wait, you guys are spending. All this time trying to make cool food. And now the goal is just make something delicious comfortable, and everyone starts doing. What happened? Thank when I give them projects to work on day. Just think it as oh like how I get it from you. There will see the same thing. And we had the same conversation that I had we feel the my managers. I sat down. Guys. Dave told me my food is fear. Doesn't least thing I wanna hear as cook. So let's really like cook with love like that's really cook with our heart like don't take this as a project, but like own it and then next day nine I remember after people were laughing. Yeah. I was like, wow. This is a healthy kitchen for the record. For me is one laughter. And I have had kitchens that I've won that have been all fear, and all my ego and new yelling like a lunatic. And I'm yelling because I'm insecure, and I suck basically that's what I've learned. And there's no reason, but I've always wanted to get better. And the funny thing is all the time in my life. When I thought the kitchen is at the best in the kitchens that I've long admired. It's very serious, but there's fucking so much common in all of a sudden in that night now like one in the morning, people are laughing and. And talking and there's like excitement that I think it was a first time. And everyone's like, you know, I'm ready to cook some food tomorrow where it wasn't that. Okay. Like how many projects that I have to do? It was a moment where everyone's started to get excited. What you think when this is going on what's going through your head because it's a lot. This is only like four days ago, very emotional. Like, it still gets me emotional why we both cry just for the record. We both cried it touches your bottom of your heart. Like, it's genuine. Right. It's crazy. It's like fuck. This is why for all the stupidity. This job sucks. But these are the moments like this is the best nothing beats that moment. When you're like, I can feed you guys, and you guys love this. And I love what you're making me. Let's try to give this to everyone else. And let's get serious to make sure we can do that. I saw that. I was like fuck. Yeah. Maybe tomorrow is gonna be awesome and Cup of people made some horrible things. Really, really bad. Still vanity Philly. Still put it was like, okay, we can use this as a lesson to learn. Why glaze that right? Why did you add more fat to that? Why do you share vinegar wide you put salon show in this? And I the one thing I feel like I've learned that. I will tell you maybe someone's listening when you're cooking and fear, and you have no confidence. The easiest thing to do is to cover it up with more ingredients. I agree at thing is hard to make it simple is better for your tire life. But the so there's we're correlation. Right. It's not just about the confidence. Get older and cooking with less, the Japanese and the talian obviously are focused on minimalism and stuff like that. And you know, I think about Cesar Ramirez Brooklyn, his food is like fucking one ingredient, very minimum its more beautiful and more delicious to me than ever before. And it's not about that trajectory. But I look at the cooks. Here that are scared and they don't wanna fail and they always have the shit. That's like so complicated. It's not about them. Not know they know how to cook. But it's over compensating. I think that goes with me to before Lind's, they are I tasted. Or after the tasting. Cooking with genuinely you know, your food is going to be good. And I think that started to build my confidence. I mean, there's definitely a fire inside. But. I think I can still have fire and be insecure. That's the best thing. I've heard all day. So this is about seven days ago. Two days in a moving third day with the tasting which was from my perspective. One of the worst days I've ever experienced, and it wasn't just cooking for you. There were actually people coming to eat dinner. And that really upset me that there was some dishes that it will. So by couldn't serve it. So I'm sure have them. That's not full. I order pizza. I note that broke me really bad. And I did it for two things one not to be a jerk. But to prove the point that like, even though it's just a tasting and their guests feet. As about it you go. Yeah. It is. But it isn't. But we can't lose sight of. I just trying to make something simple and delicious. And there was a couple of dishes that I could not believe where instructor. The salmon potato from. I don't even know what was happening. And I'm the barest. I was like I lost my temper I was so mad, and I was like God, dammit, I hate it. I try with all my heart not to fucking freak out. But it broke me when I saw that dish broke. I mean couldn't believe in. And then I realized no one's trying to make this food ban. It just showed to me I have to figure out how to communicate better. And I had to I walked away. I laughed and I was so upset. The most upset at me. Just a, you know, a so fucking myself because I just wanted to make sure I was there to not let that happen. And then coming back and walking back to the kitchen 'cause I left thirty minutes like this needed to happen. This needed have needed to happen. We all needed to experience it, and I'm glad it happened. And yeah, we still talk about it. A lot of the house back off the house. We have meetings every day. And remember like our first tasting only five. But we'd bring it a lot. There was such an important lesson for all of us. And now a quick break for word from our sponsors.

What happened the USO focusing on getting armies plus ready like, you know, what no family meal today. So no one eight so no one everyone's tired. Everyone was hungry. Dead in like there was no love. It was safer failure there that day. And we fail. And that was the only thing I really was upset about alternately. Yeah. You made the call like fuck it. We're in the weeds family cook for people. How do we lose track of time? Working. Busy busy as in looking busy. And you know, me, and it's not a novel thing, it's not just me. That believes I know you everyone believes it. What's the most important thing? We're cook all day. Now why? You have to feed ourselves. I see family meal as most important thing. And I tell all the cooks that take your time to make family meal. Like, you're cooking for like someone you care about an issues while you cook. So do you think there's any been great chef maybe there has that made shitty? Fam-? Now, would you say that all the people you admire that are really really good cared so much about oh crash coming in way early. And I learned that early on. I was like is this person here at like nine AM when they don't have to talk to 'cause they're making like puff pastry. So the gaming chicken pot pie. And I'm like what the fuck. I don't understand. Why why why learn what that man that was everything to me? I don't even know these people, but I want them to eat. Well, yeah. I mean, you could tell like if the cook is good or bad. How they make family meal. Even if they have shitty. Nice gets right to me. Now, fuck all the other tests fucked resume, you can literally tell everything by the care and the feedback you get from your coworkers that you work sixty hours a day saying, oh my gosh. Joe like that chicken salad was amazing. Makes you feel so good that as a cook. So that's why I brought the pizza. It was the quivalent of you guys. Feeding someone's head in ego and not someone that's how it was like our menu. That's how it was their menu. That's why we skip family meal. Not even made sense everything everything made sense on paper. And I think this is like a cultural thing where I just think about a lot. You can't do everything because it's efficient, and it makes sense on fucking Baber nothing fucking works. When you take that. What were some paper put it in real life the menu that you wrote and how you are working for the past year was all great on. Paper didn't translate and and. Look good on paper Erade. Well, but I had no connection to it. Cooking by numbers. Yeah. That's why I struggle. And I think that's why it didn't get anything done. I worked a lot. I made dishes. But there was no outcome. It was just like. A hamster cycle. I mean, of course, I was really really upset. Not because of what happened because of I put so much effort in my time. And I you know, I thought I cared and spending so many months working and seeing the reality on first day of mock service where. It was just chaos. Hurts so bad, right? Was the worst worst feeling you've ever experience? Worse than being in the weeds per se. I don't think it can't compare any kind of shitty. Like busy service to the feeling that experience 'cause it really gets you like. It gets you to your heart right there. A corporate high fight it. Yeah. I've. Me. And then we made food when you guys came back in the next day. And what have just by getting in the virus different? Hopefully, equates to them as much as equipped to me. And just I don't know like simple as that cliche. As it sounds like, hey, guys, like, that's really cook. Like, we're gonna cook for parents, like let's really coke for like that was the funniest thing that on the night before still going, you know, what we keep on going this fucking saying that one night. But man, I think about it that wasn't one night that wasn't one night at all. That was one year. It really was it was one year for that moment. And that's why it was so powerful because fuck man, but it's not I don't look at it as bad, which is why I actually knew that wasn't going to be bad. If we could see the other side, but you have to take the chance maybe you don't see it any day Chou says this all the time everything you want is on the other side of fear. But that's a fucking hard thing to overcome. And I just knew because of you you would fucking find a way to see it. And I was like I told you it's like you're gonna break. But if you're the kind of person that I know you are you're going to break, and you're going to put the pieces together, and it's gonna come back stronger. Try it again, it's going to break again. And you're gonna do it over and over it only is broken. If your future's to put it back together. And then we make the food make the cabbage soup. And I was telling you gotta make it like your grandmom just when you make food. That's delicious that's kings or dang John again that stinky soybean sue you don't worry about. My is a cool. You're worried about am. I gonna make my mom my family. My dad have I make this cabbage soup. You make the what is Reggie say. Now, you said he had a soup. Oh, it tastes like my grandma's food, and like, well, so happy we didn't tell them to say that. So we asked him to say out loud to everyone. Reggie what did you just say and taste like my grandma's food. He's like I want to eat this every day in the thing was is we didn't make his soup better. Grandma makes they make Korean food. She's Taiwanese we made a soup that's very different. But he said it makes him feel we could've made rice crispy treats. But if we figured out a way what we want is for him to feel like this tastes like something. My grandmother or a soup, and I was like fuck me, man. Couldn't believe. Yeah. Would the your head when he said that because was a coli ship. Same thing. What have we been missing? Like, why are we like getting this now? And then we went back today. And then you guys started cooking. And then cook it more and more. Yeah. Yeah. Then what happened? The second tasting. I think it was like second or third. I talked to the first to taste is back. Our talk was that after I one and the second one still terrible. There was another talk. The second talk was the big one thousand eight one we're combining today. She's really one taste was bad. Second one. Was you guys do the same thing? I I voted blocked it out. You guys did the same menu. Why? Because we saw how shitty was so we wanted to make it better. We wanted to just continue. You know what? This wasn't good. So let's make it better tomorrow. And maybe we'll have better service because our food is little better third day. I got in you guys are already got in early. And I see and I could just like it was like smelled it. That their day. What was changed? We had a whole meeting on Tuesday night, front hours and Becker the house. I got home, right? Planned out war. We're going to do treaty like a real service. And I think just talking honestly to each other figuring out, what's in my mind, and what's on their mind, just being brutally honest and see what we can improve. And then we create a menu that can it was our first time making it. But we knew that is a fucking good dish. So everyone came in creating like two to three dishes each and it was it was really successful nine. Food was good. Everything was good. It was smooth. Everyone's happy and Sarah. It was actually Sarah that eight that nine she came back to me. And she said, you know, Joe like, I taste your love. And we didn't tell her to say that. No, that's crazy. She made me cry again. So. Yeah. Really? Really? We're so lucky to have all these. I don't know. She said that. And then next day you start putting some dishes on. I can see the confidence. I can be like, yeah, I can fucking do this. Fuck you now. It's like the fuck you day. Wanna fuck you motherfucker? I got this step off don't be my fucking kitchen. And now, your your focus and purview is different. You're not making him. I could see you're like, hey, I want you to this this. But if this happens this happens this happens expect that I was like what the fuck Joe all of a sudden, boom, you're the fucking chef you wanna be and getting there. But you're getting there before it was like, you're trying to do everything yourself, your cooking, everything you're not explaining anything. You're like class I had confidence. That's why I had to do my own. I couldn't explain it better or have enough confidence. Be like this is what I want. This is how it should be done. But I think feedback from Sarah really helped me to cook differently. And not do everything yourself. You're not you're doing this right now the whole fucking teams and they're doing what they need to do. And the hardest part is letting go so you can teach. I mean, even now I still have to tell myself like let go or I have to remind myself or I'm gonna still try to do it. So I have to remind myself that let them do it and figure it out what you have to let them do it. I think knowing that your know what they're gonna do. That's the hardest part and what they're gonna do fuck up. But you gotta let him do it. Our muck second muck service, no meetings. Why there's no organization. Yeah. It was total shit show. And after that if one in the morning one just myself, Chris D, C N, Reggie his executive sous chef and we have one pre service, and we have one recap and nine it's all these little things. Like all these new cooks are coming in. It's almost like they have the past driver's test. These are the standards that we want you from writing on tape to wrapping things in plastic. This is how we sweep this is how we mom. These are the things that we have to get better and do, but you can it's not there. We're gonna make mistakes will falter, but I can see it happening in one fucking week. That's what I I actually love this part of the job. But just seventy two hours ago. I was like what am I doing? This is so fucking stupid. Now. I'm like, oh my God. Like last. I said oh my God. I cannot support my wife when she gives birth. I feel okay, I can go. It's like a die. Till last week. I really struggle. I hate in my life. We talked about it last time. I wish I got hit by a bus. I dunno. I dunno. How full thing can just change in one day. I don't know how. But something changed something cooked merger. Switch right. And oh, I thing. I kind of get it now. And it was actually like excited to go to work next day. I'm excited to try this dish. Yeah. I just happened. Just like that one night amazing. And you know, it's not it's not one night, we had to be honest about and we can't look back at what's happened in the past and be like remorseful or regretful because that one night doesn't happen. That's like overnight success. That's bullshit. That's like saying this shudo's Sisa pursuit. Oh, that's been age fucking for years. That's delicious. And you just Leist it. No. That's bullshit. No. I mean, there's over many Munson days Munton days that feel talk to that point where I need it that six months of struggle to be like, oh my gosh. That's the fucking magic man, and what are editing out when we first started this process editing out the suffering the pain, all you wanted was the joy. Of course, we want to jump straight to fucking go. Yeah. And that's what sucks, but that's also weirdly, what's byu. Beautiful, you know. And I I got him as weird tangent. Trying to explain to you this is like fucking the birth of tragedy by Nietzsche. This is the Appalachian versus the dining one day. We'll fucking talk to someone that can talk about this not me. But I was like man to truly know why we do what we do. We can't just fucking have the good. It's not necessarily bad. But I really believe Joe that all that suffering and the trials that you've gone through. That was necessary for you to be in that moment to have that light. Come on be like, yeah, I got this now because I didn't see it before. But the only way I was going to see it as by going through all that shit. Of course, if I didn't have that six months of experience, there will be no like Allman who've been that. Oh, so we gotta go because there's a lot of people and you got to be a chef. All right, Joe catch up with you again, maybe a month or two. Well, that was our conversation with Joan we had a ended because we had to deal with so many issues that day we're going to continue these conversations with Joe park. Really am thankful that she's been brave enough to talk about a lot of these things. It is not easy. And I am so rightful that she was able to like sort of bare her soul in a bit about all of her fears about being a chef for the first time and being as transparent as possible not easy to do. And I think it's a testament to her character of never giving up. She's one of the toughest individuals. I know with being incredibly talented and gifted at cooking. She's finding her voice one of the things that we didn't talk about. But I wanted to talk about because it's something that she's learning is something I joke about quite a bit as the holy trinity in a kitchen what I believe is a sort of fun. A mental thing too. I think managing a kitchen or having these roles I might have spoken about it before or not. But it's something I'm continuing to to sort of impress upon Joe in and it's obviously a derivative of the Christian idea of the sun, the father and the Holy Spirit. I know this fucking sounds weird. But you're listening to my podcast, and I'm fucking weird out. So I believe that idea of three different entities that are necessary for something is something. I've always applied to cooking in a kitchen setting you need someone that's going to be the good cop. Someone that's going to ensure that everyone's feeling okay? That they're in a good place, mentally that is reinforcing positive behavior. You also need sort of a bad cop and not bad as in the meaning, but bad is in correcting someone that's constantly letting people know that they need to be there. Harsh critic that they're not following the rules. Well that. Technique is may be sloppy that things need to improve. Lastly, you need someone that is going to like joke. Walk on water, you need someone that's gonna make miracles happen. And that's someone that just gonna make food delicious. Right. You need these three roles you need these three roles that sometimes can be one person in a small kitchen. Sometimes that's held by like fifteen people. Right. But you need these three roles filled in a kitchen, you need a good cop bad cop and the person that can make miracles happen with food and you need to make sure that's delegated. And I think Joe trying to find who that is in Joe by nature is not someone that's so loud. And and loquacious in someone that's going to talk incessantly like myself. She lets her actions before herself she's learned that that process of who's going to be the good combat cop and miracle maker is going to take time. And we'll see what happens, but you know. If you disagree with that statement, I love to hear that your vision, and your ideas on your questions to ask Dave at major Domo media dot com. But you need to have that balance of the good the bad and the person that believes that things can happen. The person that the line cook. That is why am I spending twelve hours a day doing dummies applause? They need to understand they need to believe in something that is greater than themselves that the dishes that are making our transcendent can be so delicious that that's why all the hard work doing makes sense. And and like Joe's in that process of figuring out what what kind of quote unquote, miracle she can make. So I think by the time this airs this is going to be opening day Cowie, and we'll get back to sort of regular programming. But we've been on this good run with Jerry's podcast with Jessica's, cloud counts lawless. And I think that to to a certain degree all of our podcasts have. I haven't compass a lot of the themes that we've talked about in these past two of the pre-opening dyers with unusual park, and this was happening real time. And we wanted to get this out there because I think it's interesting to know a little bit more about Anjar that you might not hear about we might not know in a article, she's a real person she's really trying to put everything out there. And I couldn't be prouder of herself and the whole team we chose a windowless space. We intentionally chose one of the worst locations in a great building that we're in right now. Right. Because we want to have the hardest route to success. So we joke that we have we want to be the best restaurant despite its location, right? Like, we did the same thing in Australia when we chose the worst part of the casino, you know, they just redid this fabulous casino. And we chose the place that has the worst foot traffic to open up sale. When we did major Domo in Los Angeles. We chose one of the hardest locations even though it's a good location. It's a great location. It's near the highways, and it's essential located to a lot of different things. But it's not something that is so easy to get to anything that we have to work harder to deliver that customer experience, and and in this new massive complex that has all the bells and whistles you'd ever want. We chose location that while it's a great location, which is the one that doesn't have the the fancy bells and whistles awesome views that a lot of our appears do in this building chose a place that has no windows because we want to like work out of this this location. We want to set the tone and over deliver right that we can still have the best experience without having a beautiful view. I think the restaurants awesome. I think the staff is gelling it's going to take time. But we're gonna figure out a way to make it work and. I'm excited. I'm gonna shut the fuck up. I I got I got so many other things to do. Thanks for listening guys and mostly big shout out to undo park, her family and entire team at Cowley entire organization mobile food that supported her you might have heard a lot of names. Hopefully, we'll get them on this podcast one day to talk about this because it really takes a small village to get this operation running and we've done a lot this year. And hopefully, we'll be able to excel at high level. And if we don't or gonna find a way to make it work and big thanks to the whole team of Hudson yards for giving us this opportunity. And let's see what happens. God bless give us five stars on. However, you rate this thing on I tunes or Spotify or whatever stay tuned next week said more questions to ask Dave at major media. Thank you.

This Ordinary Mind is the Way

"Morning everyone. Hobie damn well. these days with. Whatever's going on with the with coverted is like we have many worlds. It seems very fragmented almost like the zoom screen. All of these different worlds. And obviously I don't know if any these talk sort of reach your apply. But twit, many send talks because we have many different worlds sir. Is Important to somewhat generic, and then we plug into a however. However way the goes without lights. So. I wanted to talk on a column today about. Ordinary ordinary life. And of course, each one of those has. Has the military life. depending on how you really regatta and see see what that is. This is ordinary. Mind is the way. For some reason this morning in in looking at this call and I was having A. Hard time actually token about it, so I can't really say awful lot about two which is. Which is true? Anyway let me let me read the read the Koran and moons, common tree, and the and the verse, and then maybe. I'll get some inspiration on the on the way. So owner reminders the way case nineteen of the gate Lewis Gate or mummum con. The case Josue earnestly asked Nansen. What is the way nonsense answered? The ordinary mind is the way. Joe. Should I direct myself to ward it all not. Nonsense said if you try to turn to awarded you go against it. Jochen asked. If I do not try to turn toward. How can I know that it's the way? Nonsense said the way does not belong to knowing or not knowing. Knowing is delusion. Not. Knowing is a blank consciousness. When you have really reached the true way beyond all doubt, you'll find it as vast boundless as the great empty. They use the word firmament here thus can ally old language. Sky Is good enough. How can it be talked about on the level of right and wrong? These words shoe was suddenly enlightened. movements commentary nonsense was asked a question by Joe Shoe. A nonsense base shattered melted away. He could not justify himself. Even, though Joe Shoe has come to realize Asian he will have to delve into it for the two years before he can realize it fully. The verse the Spring Flowers, the moon, in autumn. The cool breezes of Summa the winter snow. If idol concerns do not cloud the mind. This. Is, a person's happiest season. So really this this lie. This last line of the poem is probably the key to they to mean cat and entire Coa. Idol concerns do not cloud the mind. This is man's happiest season or persons happiest season. Unreal does this is. This is the key to practice because If there's nothing wrong. There's nothing wrong. You know if you don't get swept up with. All kinds of machinations in the mind and directed in in all kinds of different ways. There's no problem. Minitel really till I was about fifteen sixteen. There wasn't much your problem. I just did what I did. The mine just went worry willing to go. It was no problems then at some point, that was something else. There was a feel of not being home. Now you can say that that this is. A DISEASE You could say it's a great spiritual attribute. But that was that would desire that to explore human consciousness, or I don't know if you can really even add the would human on it. Tell you the truth. ICON specifically say it's from that perspective. There's just there's just consciousness, and then there's a desire to explore and see what whatever is going on. So. That begins to occur. And it's the same across the board, basically for the majority of human beings that I've been counted. In my fourth forty some years of practice. Gang close to fifty now gets not that it matters. But there's that desire. But in that process there is a splitting up. Something's not quite right. and in that process then there is a looking at ancient tax ancient. Approaches. And then. A comparison basically between one's own mind and say the mind of the ancient. You could say that's a on. In its in itself in other words, this is their understanding. This is my understanding or my realization. This is that realization. And then call on really is the matching these two. As the basis of it. You could say that the the basic call no question of. Buddhism is. All beings, the great earth are the wisdom, and the chew of the away from one to those nets. You could. You could say that's the entire column. That's what the Buddha realized when he so the morning. Stop I o being the great earth are the wisdom of the Church of your Wakeham to those things, but even raising that that kind of thing music causes problems. You know. This. This may be if I don't see it that way then. I go. I better do some work and trion aimed towards this. This race nuys it. Is there anything right or wrong in the? You know that depends on the person. The some people there is a determination which is like I am. You know which is I will I'll solve this amount of wall, and with others as just a little. Inkling that this is hallman. It'd be nice to return to. Maybe the price is a bit too too much to pay for the. Know, if you, if you determine then, you know basically these these gaps, these these Supposed- lacks of understanding could be bridged. You know if you really want to do those things they can be bridge. They can be fixed. That's the basis of caller. My Zamira, she would say The biggest call on is. Between one South One south. You know. Go figure it, you know I mean you could split it up with words and kind of go, true self and fake south, but even with that. Bring you, your your fake south is hard. That's a hard thing to do something else something on Jack. So in this in this case, you know, it's really nice because we. We don't know if if Jochem. He's asking this. Because he really means sale, or he's asking this because he's asking for the people who around. We don't know that I mean in some cases. You know I'll do that. I will ask a basic question for the audience. And that's a great thing. Because then it can be brought up. It can be seen it can be. It can be dealt with in one way or another. So here we have the. Joe Shoe Asks Nansen is the way. and. Nansen just answers ordinary. Mind is the way. Now. Through over the years I've heard. People Really MIS misunderstand this statement. Has You know 'cause usually in the West? We understand mind as the head the thought process. And so ordinary mind just whatever happens whatever passes through whatever takes plights. Is is the way. You know so I. Really don't I really don't need to do something. You know. Let less true I. Don't really need to do something, but on a on a level is look at the stuff that he's being introduced with the had. On the momentary basis? Ninth you if you take nonsense statement as ordinary minders, way is the the the entire sense via including the universe that surround US lied. The hall suture says the basically the one who sees the process of seeing and the objects of sight s o one thing. And the same with airing tasting touching smelling an thanking. All of this is one thing we have to be careful with because as human beings. We rely on it so much. You know I just remember. All of the intellectuals meeting Stanford for this dog and conference. Who went to and while we're all getting a get enough. Oh, photograph, tate in and who should stem web because of seeing the architects after the dog was eat and the cold cuts. The dog doesn't worry about about what it looks like. His position in society just does what a dog does now human beings. The we have that aspect. We can go for the cuts, but these other things tend to get in the way. No so. Ordinary mind is the way so what does what does that really mean ordinary? You know the Mind Sun rising in the east and the The Sun. Setting in the West. You know. The grass, growing the trees around those the light, the ocean. You know the city that surrounds us. This is ordinary mind that's going on in the momentary basis. There isn't really a division there, but we can easily create that with all pro sets. Put things that cause causes, problems and separators SCHRIMM. The the direct experience of what's going on. You know if only it were. You know when when I get more wise than maybe I will get more respect. You know. When if all of these scenarios that we introduce the governor little to do with this momentary ordinary mind. If you want a bit of an insight into it, you know, says the first thing in terms of ordinary mind in verse it says the Spring Flowers the moon in autumn, the cool breezes in summer the winter snow. This is ordinary mind. The things that are are are basis now you think well, that's not how my mind works. But that is the first direct experience that we have right now. We have beautiful summer breezes. You know the die. Rightly experience them, and is so is so refreshing to to have those things. He just saying those direct things, but we always create something in our minds, the separate from from a basic experience. Now. it's also interesting in Newman's commentary. And you would think this would be somewhat in reverse. It, but it goes Nansen was asked a question by Joe, shoe and nonsense base was shattered melted away. So he was asked. You know what is the way. So, how can these baseball shouted? You know he's obviously split up because he has to say something about it. He has to send some. They shouted the point now. I have to objectively say something about my life, which is continuing on a momentary basis. I have to move move this experience of direct interaction with the world around me. No matter what I'm doing and they have to objectively bad. Say something about something that is going on, so take snapshot of this and talk about it. We'll talk about analogies split up the world this ordinary mind. But then as human beings in some ways, that's the way we love. You know. So he's base was shattered. And he could not justify himself. You can never justify yourself through words. You know. Hardly ever in my entire life, has somebody become in the light? Through words. No matter what I say. You know some people May. have. A way pointed out or something like that. But it's the application of those words. The the creates the the. You. Know the the real difference, and that's the thing with Joe. Shoe when Joe last single all earnestness it's important to. Each one of us when it's important to us will ask Andrew earnestness. And not earnestness usually means well. You know at least throw me a ball, and then I can chew on it and I can see. I can see what that is. And, if that occurs if I make those experiments than I, see for myself in that way. But quite often, we don't move beyond that point. I remember spend it. The last year I spent academically. I I learned so much you know and then I went out inside doing carpentry. And I remember trying to will things to America like I could make pictures of things. And understand things in in academia. But then that wouldn't translate to Chile. Making a window I couldn't will it. I had to get down to get you know and and follow the process in the process. Actually worked. Something came out of it. Now, this is the first thing with Jochen. He's great student in that way, and he's so open and he will try these things. And not only that not only will try these things out. He'll go well. That doesn't quite fit for me. How can this work and this one of the one of the best ways to be socal goods and student? is to. Is To really immerse yourself in it, and then allow these questions to emerge, and then learning how to ask these questions, no matter how dumb they are, is that then are allusions can be examined. Collectively and some something can really come out of this. NASA beauty of Yo. Shoe and the Nice thing is with this particular interaction, Joe. She wasn't in a hurry I. Think he was you know something like eighteen in practice would nonsense until he was in his fifties. And then you know. He basically lived until one hundred twenty, not that he knew that that was going to look. You know and in that process, basically he. Allowed that ordinary way to really come to the surface in practice it. So. It's kind of interesting he goes. Should I direct myself toward it or not? All of us do that on one level is hardly anybody that is simultaneously in light the the goes. You know this. Is it now I'm done you know we. We hear historically the. About that, but quite often those people are not very good teachers, because the not tried all these different directions. You know it's like a climate they'll. They'll use many possible vase. And then you know eventually find the hardest one, and they'll map it out and you know. Get get to the top, and then that's an amazing achievement, right? In terms of being exempt student is the full into so many pets that you've mapped out the territory you know. Is just let you fall down so many times that eventually you see the way that you go even being. One of those pitfalls. He's putting. This isn't enough this still something else that I need. You know this is this. Is Joe Shoes thing right from the beginning? US. What is the way you know? I mean nonsense could slapped him and gone. Out You know this is the way. is nothing else right here? You know, but Manson is very is very. What. Should I say, patient also skillful teacher? He C-. He sees where Joe Shoes coming from any any tries to bring certain things out. Because if you go toward it, you, you go against it. So if you know and this is, this is where another statement comes up in in terms of practices the. A lot of people will say certain stage in that practice you shouldn't seek. You shouldn't see after after things and the and the way in spiritual progress etcetera. But the thing is if that is natural to you at this moment in time I would suggest that you. Wear that out the you exhausted. The you put into that until there is none of that left. It's not a matter of you shouldn't see. Is that if the human mind seeks, let seek. If you my wants to clarify. Let it clarify. Let it do it to the hilt. An at some point in time that will be just become integrated with us the great, Cohen itself South. As a teacher, I'm always trying to find where the students come in from I before. I can say something. and NASA form of seeking is like collecting the body language seeing West somebody's coming from and then. You know, go going in the cold without. So. If you go towards you, go against it in other words. We tend to split up that point. Goal this, this is the way that the ancestors sat up. And you can say well. This is the way the answer seduce setup could be the one. Who was awaken to thus snus? As appeared is this. So as you look at these is through these ears. The one news attained to those snus. As a as a paid like this. If you go towards it, you go against it if you be it thoroughly holy. There's no problem that, but that is a very difficult thing to swallow. You, know we. We always like process we like to. Go through the ranks we light to you know, go through the columns. We liked to go through the responsibilities and saw the we got overall study. All of those things are great, but never forget that Wong. Who sees these is here's through. These years now is interesting in. This is the in the booth Ernie Second Statement. As, he says Oh beings have the wisdom of the awaken one-two thus nece, he also says because of our upside down views. We failed to see it in many ways practices really. Dealing with those aspects, these upside down views the bring in over and over. You know like some people will go well. Yeah, just this, is it? But I wish it was a different white. But justice is, it really means swallow this whole. You know this isn't disappointed. This is the way it is. Not Member Joko back when she had realization shoes really disappointed because he wasn't like she imagined. That! You know but at the same time is I never signed a contract when I came into this. This will with anybody any day at. Any, any being that said this is the way it's going to be. And you better play your PA. Is that this is free three-fold right from the beginning like. Nonsense says in the last line. You know when you when you see the way it's as. Let's see. When you, when you finally reach the true way beyond all doubt, you'll find it as fast and boundless. As the great and T sky. And that's what life is. You can move in many different ways, but it's not meant to an ad in a way that you. Imagine it to, or you would like it. I mean we see this with with with all the covid restrictions you know some days I'm climbing the walls even though. We've got a lot a large area. You know to go into I mean some of you, it's. It's lot tougher than the where I'm at. But. Thing. This is the way it is. How do I really live it? And if I if I am living which I am you know. How can they enjoy this the real question? Then what kind of suffering do I introduce into this this being this ordinary mind? The creates the suffering. A make turns it into house. And this is also an important part, so he's not just yeah I'm being, and this is the way it is. Look at how the mind works. A many different ways look at the almost. The autonomic passive, just being human ones that just kick in natural. Look those parts. You don't always need to do something about those, but then the things that we bring in the introduction which again is the root of the preset. Do not being toxic. Do. Not Bring in these intoxicants of spoil lives. Into this. Ordinary mind this direct experience of this moment over and over and over an over, and then you know it's just like mm-hmm on says that me either concerns do not cloud the mind. This kind of interesting clouds come and go. It doesn't mean the this is the way it is. Spur Abba. If idol consumes, do not cloud the mind. This is my person's happiest season. This moment in time. It doesn't mean that you're trying to be missed a rogers here, but just look at those intoxicants. You don't have to bring them in. You know just feel your ex. You'll you'll. You'll basic experience which in essence and from my own experience vast boundless right in the beginning I, try and make small with all kinds of concerns. Some of those concerns. I do not need to bring in. But that's the other aspect. Is that attachment to things, so we have something? In this process. Now. In terms of the Cohen. So, he goes direct myself towards. If you turn if you try to tend towards it, you go against it. And so Josue says if I, do not try to my way. Way Towards how can I know that is the way? Now this is this is a big shift in terms of practice is when. You swallow your own condition hall. No matter, no matter what whether you're, you're really suffering from loss from injury from. Say financial difficulty any of these things when you swallow, this is the way no matter wall. You know so if something is rising in terms of life is can ideal with this thoroughly openly now. That is very difficult. Are always remember my Zamira. She saying something that was. Ridiculously simple. We just ridiculous and I hated it. He goes when it's hard, it's hard. It was hard time when it's obvious. But can we swallow that? It's just like well. It'd be nice if you had this spin on it or that Ori, for only and then that's where we starts to get muddy. You Know I. Spent many years in the middle part of my practice, where as like trusting myself just to feel whatever was going on rather than to try and intellectually work it out. I gone into at a gardening inkling into it started just really going into into the feeling and not perpetuate the story. On what I found through doing that really feeling the situation circumstance, not going for some Nirvana in my own mind, you know. Was the I actually Mussa. Those difficult circumstances law allowed quick because I was actually given them voice, allowing those things really to come to the surface and show me whatever it was. The was actually going on and I also then began to feel deeply more deeply about. About people and things around me because everybody goes through similar things. You know again is that the head could never really that out. It tended perpetuate to story around it robin the direct experience again. This goes back to ordinary. Mind is the way internally when those things are going up. What is this? What's going on and then finding something about it rather than going, I? Don't like this I'll just push it off and then maybe it'll go away. But usually if I resist it it. Is Old psychotherapy thing comes in what have you resist persists and is true to a certain degree. So, so then really swallowing yourself hall. This is my life right now. It combine the way because it isn't. Right now it isn't but if I need to understand these things than this does less chance of them dominating my life through lie. If I thoroughly experienced them, learn something from them. And if it keeps on coming up then you know I haven't learned that lesson yet. 'cause those that usually the collins said we really need. Because those are the ones we haven't passed yet for ourselves. We haven't gone through those things at this point in time. So. Then he goes into. The way does not belong to knowingly not known now for us. An I can't really so the separate myself from from Say saying in the West because you know I. I know some Japanese people that way we love to know things we love to know. Let's kind of interesting because nonsense says. Knowing is delusion. That is kind of interesting. In terms, lean linguistically is the. No comes from know sis, which is more feeling with the body, so as Greek word, and that and that would comes from which you think is the English route to. Comes from. Prussia at which is the same script Paulie? I was getting mixed up, but one of those two and again. That's in knowledge so where where he saying no here, that's. The knowledge that he's talking about so when I frame something again and then I go! Yeah, I. Know The way is that I'm splitting myself up from the way. That's why he's saying the knowing it doesn't belong to knowing not knowing the not knowing pot is that it's not just a matter of pushing l- away and then going going into a blank consciousness that he's talking about. Book the beauty is the knowing. Points to that Deepa not knowing which is the sole source of of all creativity. Now if you go directly into into that that not knowing directly experiencing it. Then, you can point the way very easily to people. Because then conversation is direct diorite text freshen of whatever wants direct experiences right now. Thoughts has been enlisted as until rod the ban, an overall thing that he's trying to know the universe and it never will. Now. Why do I say that is? I've tried it. And the universe is way too big for the mind to the human mind to encompass bought direct experience of this universe can be experienced on the momentary basis. To whatever depth to what and there is no debt. Thelma Ritter. Always know this moment has infinite depth. But nobody can judge that fully. You know that is something the. Is! The that we are born with human beings. Just like. The six ancestor. Andy heard the phrase dwelling nowhere. Raise the mind, and that's what life is we do I'll know right from the beginning. That's Di directly at the base of this. Are, then raise up whatever it is that we need to whatever sphere wherein to really function. So the way belongs to neither knowing or not knowing that isn't like a zen clause. You know. that it doesn't, it's not is not either oil. Sometimes we need to know we need to express. Sometimes it's important to go into the unknown and find out just in the same way is if you're dealing with somebody and you don't really know whether coming from you listen very very carefully you pick. Try and pick the body language by looking at the body and seeing how how how that stances. And then begin to through conversation pickup the key the keys, the things the that you need to address that person. And then in one way you take risk, you know all communication. I think. Open it up at this point, and then if there's anything more I'll you know I'll. I'll I'll say some more from the Cohen. Case. So you can use the raise hand. Function and you can also on Mute Yourself, and I will open up chat as well Indiana I see that you've a muted yourself. John Kerry on. Good Morning I just to say straightaway. I. Think you use prefaced your talk by saying that. You didn't really know what you're going to save out this since spring. I just to me. Dislike the most succinct clear. Arc. That I've heard in ages I mean most of yours are. Really except no it really. It just hits home every Lauren. It also helps me resolve some of the Else. We clarify more your. Work that I do in therapy is so yeah. Meshed resent. Yeah, yeah, the show y'all I took so many notes about some of those things because it was really eliminating to me so. Surreal synchronicity the media here this talk this morning. No you don't is important. Tara therapies stood the the human condition to. An ways of moving through places where get stuck, which again is not stoke axel wheel. It important to look at since. The really good techniques. Nearly didn't see any y'all separation. No, no, no, I'm not trying to separate immuno of talking about the human condition. Yeah. So! Really? Just hit a lot of things. Thank you. Amber. Retain about that. You mentioning that you were having. A hard time stinks about this one. This morning was the Cohen just about life. Is like this. Go figure you know. This. I was wondering if you've seen. Up. Whether. Lead have the could say something. Yeah. Yeah and that's trust in. You know basically the unknown. Is this I know? Something will come up the way or another. It doesn't it doesn't? It doesn't intimidate Neil or Omega me fearful. You know he's just I. Know something will come out and it's the same thing when I when I deal with people and sometimes I. Just don't have anything disabled. Something comes out one way or another. and. You know this this usually those awkward pause, but it's important to feel. Could Pasta sometimes they give you information. About the circumstances because both of us involved in In that process any conversation is you know this to people? You know. Set when he's with myself. Yeah this good thanks asking the question. Step for you. It's SIROCCO. Maria. Again it's. Rojo you doing? Rushing. Good. It's good to see you. I my question is going to be. Seeking, but as you said that know, let's just where I would I mean. You're talking about. You're. Not Separating Yourself, observe and I find that. Not Despair as easy, but it feels like very much. Within reach with. inanimate surroundings ornament animals right like like. Going hiking and. It is because you get like those who winces of White, not suffer your environment, but it's really challenging. people special people. Or people that you know like for example like he can feel that that not separate us with your partner, but then when you have a conflict in his like much ardour to really. Excel! And then you also brought up A. Year No like observing Blanton United. It's on. Like a body language on the white emotional intelligence trainees. Recently, is you've you've now that I that something that I struggle with The address a little bit of that when it should. Should I spoke. Would it help to dislike experience that that that not suffered is just with with nature I in in Mandalit up to human urges. Just I don't know. What's the that's? That's what you do in right. Yes. Let's go now. Just ask yourself the question. Why? Why don't I feel life like this when I am interacting with people? 'CAUSE 'cause, then it may be. You're trying to superimpose a natural thing over the top of. People people in the street. You know people in the street is just people in the street it's it's not the feeling of being in the in the country. So the thing is just just allow yourself to be fully present. An don't put any divisions this is this is how it is in the street. This is how is in the country, but the one who sees through these eyes and brings signals. Is that no matter what activities going on? You know that that that is basic awareness one of the things. I know I tended to do. Probably for the first twenty years of my practice was demane basic awareness. Value Basic Awareness. You know, and that's the thing that really needs to raise up to the surface. Is. The I'm alive and Kickin. The willed is showing up on a momentary basis. Why do I want something different? Come in? When. I'm I'm say washing dishes. then. This is my life right now. Is No high or low point here is I'm washing dishes out. Can I enjoy it I can do this best of my ability. When I'm avenue knowledgeable with my spouse you know is this is my life right now. What's most important? You know and I'll let you on so that one. You know. 'cause again is just the the way that I, I live on what has been given me is very important. And then how a tree! Because I feel with that connectedness. The others are in the same place whether they're exhibiting that or that acting like an enemy I've always been a bad that mind. This is life right now. How do I make the most of it, you know, and sometimes in those really difficult times you can actually make. You can build bridges. Not Saying all the time. But you know this is life right now. What can I live from it? No matter Wasser rising whether it's negative or positive difference of opinion. You know all of these things. Always remember we're in this together. That's why practices animals. Remember on pre sometimes sucks. But this is life right now. I wasn't like the Buddha remember. The Buddha had hard times, too. Is Cousin tried to kill him? You know is You know. He's country was destroyed by his mother's country. You tried to get in between I'm sure he had a lot of. You know. Emotional over that. He left the sanger about three times, and they had to bring him back and I can understand that, too. You know it wasn't like he had an ideal life. He lived a time where the wasn't a fantastic amount of food, etc, they will live outside a lot of the Times you know. So i. mean that's that any. Any died of dysentery this dysentery by the side of the road. That was his reward for four tiers. Teaching But in saying that that's the human condition. He shed light on the human condition, and he made the best he possibly could. So for IT'S A. Your way. You make that the best that you. Come from from what you have, and the thing is. Nobody has ever been you ever in this universe. So that's worries, vast and boundless. You have caught blanche that to do whatever it is you need to do. Thanks zero q seeing you. Ron. Heroin on. A Roach A. In a very early part of your talk you talked about if final thoughts do not cloud, the mind of I can relate to either thoughts clouding mine yet. I can see. I guess that Distinction of Oh. We've got over here week that this ordinary mind for. Or looking for the over here with these oil thoughts, Kinda split in of itself. Unless you sit there and go all right. We're the ones or not I mean unless you're really. Concentrates but in doing that, you lose. Yeah you have to. You have to do something tabs practice. And some know sometimes you have to split things up. A slight. Okay like must Macedonian right. He did the Food Angi. And I'll use the translation that I am. I remember which is. Let's see Why Training and enlightenment differentiated or made to, since the truth is universal, saying the same thing why study a means to attain, it seems since the Supreme Teaching is free. which is now, you know? Since, truth is clearly seeing to be apart from that, which is unclean, why cling to a means of cleansing it which is practice? Okay, so he's saying something that the that all of us. All of us understand, but then he goes baud if there's the slightest gap. Then there's the difference between having A. So, so then he goes into practice practice liability dom practice like the Buddha. Now these things are important because if we don't really see who we are what our life is. And you'll no different than Joe Xuan this. He's doing exactly that he's studying ways. He studying how the mind works. He's is learning to be able to put the chaff on one side, and look directly may both the symbol tena. Can from clarity or I can go. United will losing two nil at half time and I'm really concerned about what's going to happen. Life's going on so I can put those things on one side. It doesn't mean that those things are not happening. It means the right now. This is the most important thing. But a lot of people can't differentiate between the thought process. An indirect living. You know that's a basic thing that really needs to to to be to be taken care of. When you do that, then you can tell it. We many people in many different ways and give them tools to help some with that. You know. Yes I'm definitely one of those people. Well we all we all ought to us to whatever degree in is not a matter of comparing ourselves that way. Each one of us has always that we act to gain star our own basic. being. And is important to be able to put those things on one side for the time being. An experience the world. It's like does end. Maybe. I'm still finding now. Through. Agno. Morning. It's really nice to see everybody. Today! I can hear you good. Could you say a little bit more of out? Christ. Yeah, the inner knowing. What that knowing is this something I'm? Really. Converting inside the knowledge I'm wanting to understand. That aspect of of wisdom. Unfortunately in the. English. Language we just taken that wisdom. To be intellectual knowledge. And then you know, but we have that we have wisdom of of of all kinds. The the is basically presented to us. In Buddhism as a unified. Thing, this the experiential, it's appearing objectively as well of subjectively it is the process of learning and all those things. How he's talked in terms of China, so you know you speak Greek so I i. don't know how noces issues now in terms of the weather. It's. More like the rock of Hind Lens. A stranger in a strange land. You know. But, but you know we tend to soon as we head. No, it's it is cognitive now in the English language rob than we'd have to say exponential now that's wisdom in itself. You know announcing bodied wisdom. So. You know you look you. Look at the heart, Sutra for instance and Abloh cash so that she knew. When doing deep pressure me to wisdom, the goes beyond all concept so knowledge basically. So when you immerse, yourself clearly saw you know. And that's that's the application of wisdom right then so the living in itself is important like there was a lodge potter might my own practice where I had all of those on one side and used to do. Don't hold up with miss being some separate than what I'm doing all attainment, and just immerse, and then what I. What I found out when I allowed that to occur rather than trying to cognitively place myself in one way or another than five years down the road, if I'm that wisdom of just immersion being. Taken over rather rather than always trying to play. This my on there yet you know etc.. And so that that wisdom them becomes more embodied rather than cognitive. The cognitive isn't helpful, but it's gotta be conjured up rather than. Available just like if you're a musician. And you play is available. If. You're soccer player and you play. It's available. If not you. You walk in around. What was that you know, or I forget the in tune. And that that's that's the real difference in it. We just like the same with the English word. To understand at Houston main to stand on the or to actually? Experience what whatever stab, but then he got, the meaning shifted around cognitively. Doing exactly and again is I'm not trying to I'm not trying to demane. Intellect is great tool, but prepared to time. It has our reliance on asked to be put on one side, an instinct, intuition and basic. Knowledge. Of of practice comes to the full from, and then then the intellect can be used to express. Is based on something rather than floating around and just ideas. And then you know like an in Buddhist practice than. The until it's use a lot of discernment. You know so you actually use the thought processes until? So he's not like you know trying to get to a stage would. You know as you use it wherever you are in life but from that basis. Yeah, we're in. This together was the best thing to work. Thank you. Sonya. Bruce had his hand up. Southie? Spot. A Bruce. Okimoto A! You're in a different place. In fact, you frozen. Yeah I, a kind of a and you see you had some stained glass behind. I caught a conohere. Still so I. Don't I don't know. Can you turn you? Sorry can you? Can you turn your vision? Video often then you save, the toll will come through. Yeah I can hear you now. Great, it worked. Technical Genius look it up. Yeah just poking buttons yeah. All right yeah. in their punches. Works of. Good! Insight! A lock. At. Russa I really I really caught. He is slight year you talking through a phaser something. You can turn to. Try chattings once you could try chatting. Whatever that means type it out. We can move on someone else to. Get Hot, yeah. I get hot. You're all. Three thank you. I was just wondering. You know detail by receiving instructions. To Talk. Because I have two options to choose. Not ought to engage. Yeah, I was wondering how why synchronize? you. You'RE GONNA. Find out what's what's right for you. You know I I. Remember when I was with my Zuma row, she asked me and I I might have said this. A I'm running out of new material, but you know. He said. How was my talk and I said well. I tend to attend not to freeze on points so I. Don't remember off the law. And I go with the flow of the of the of the whole of the whole talk. And then one or two things may stick with me and he goes, and he said to me well. That's the perfect way of doing it because you can only work with or apply one or two things. It's not that I say a whole bunch of stuff like the most important thing is the one thing that strikes you the two things that strike you because then you can, you can apply those. You know. Is like? That students Alesia. Injuries to synchronize surprising in jail. She said I. Don't see the annual that is something going on that smaller yet. I. Know, what one time wiping seeking minded than it becomes Miocene. Yes, yeah, exactly. That's why it's important to put your thing on one side while you're listening to somebody, and then then you actually hear more. I have been a been on been on, you know like in a restaurant scene to people and they're having to conversations woman. In an ongoing. How you ever GonNa find out whether the other person's coming from. You know. But you know if I can put my my stuff on one side and then actually listen to that I. I learned a lot more about that person. Not only a the story, but the feeling that story in you know the the gut level feeling of what's really going on in their life in in one way or another? Right. Would sink to hold back on the first in through on. Often because. Of stupid from Weinstein Yellow you to determine that yeah. It's. It's fresh. It's innocent of. It's not a strategy, so yes, not, very sensitive or whatever it is comes. Dressing roses onto. Saying so is as it is always interesting, no matter what. Requires Training in a weight is out yet. You. Want to, but I think I think the web practice is probably better in the sense the if you hear something, you think you might be true is then put it into practice. I can tell you stuff like I did with my Zimaraya, but he may not be true for you if you put that into practice and see if it actually is good site with I. Don't take the Buddha's words for granted Al. Gore would've said this. That for is that way is going. What did he mean by this? How does this apply to my life? You know, and then in doing so is that then I get a deeper understanding of where he's coming from hardly avenue I goal. Throw that away. It's mainly. Oh, I see what he's talking about now. It's more on those lines but I I never been wants to swallow the aid. You know that way just like. How does that apply to my life? And then in doing. At the conceptual beef in some fessel yeah. Only death, embracing of the tombs of. Left Onset slow. They don't have any SPA. Greeting. disatisfaction only. Gets enough. Thank you very much for their. Thanks appreciate it, thank you. Anyone else says any comments or questions. We have a few minutes left. Someone's amuse themselves P J or pj he. Thinks. This is fear piano. She yeah. I. I went. there. A wreck before with each aw. The only here. Will be older believed in in in our free as reality or wondering if that's the case been Cohen's. indifferent. insuring east and The West, is you? Are Your right now west. is it? Is it the. June some point with her. Own Free is by reality. I you know this this a lot of eastern poetry that does does point to to reality. You know. But also poetry can be call on. Western poetry can be call on. Is when is when somebody? When I read a power prime I go! What what are they tolkien about especially if they using analogies. And then if he strikes me, then is so slight. Wow, that's that's really that's really good. And you know I wouldn't I wouldn't put these these divisions in between eastern Western people there's. There there is tendencies. But. Everybody's everybody's different in their own being. And they express things in their own way. Some of us are more intellectually driven some of us will. Say Work or practically driven. You know we have all of those different kinds of people. The important thing is picking up what every useful to you, and then use it, and then whatever one's own talent saw using those talents in whatever way? You Yeah! I mean if you ever get a chance read. what is it Jack Kerouac scripture of Golden Eternity. And that that's a poem also. Yeah. It's it's a really good piece of not only poetry, but he's made a really good attempt to do in the Sutra. Okay! Yeah okay. Yeah. Great. Thank you I. See you you, too. Is An. and. A little Raunchy. How're you doing? Good whole be hijacked you. That's my Jig. There is. Under more that you can put autograph behind him. Yes amazing. Snow but. Anyway so this one is thank you so much for this of this helps me stay. Connected with the practice field feel connected with you themselve. God and Really WanNa. Thank you. What I'll take away from your talk today. Is it okay to ask them push? Due to the whole time you. Feel like. You. Remember. Remember communication is is getting on the same page. simplisafe. That, thus, thus what we're doing, he knows communicating. The same life you know so that we're not all. You know in our own netherworld somewhere. The certainly understand that yeah. Me Too. But thank you so much, thank you. Question here. Versus you. To to clarify. On were. The commentaries They spoke of nonsense being broken. Base was broken. Yeah, visit in the. Back. Out of Absolute Luton's the relative to help. Explain that. A Yeah, he said I'm alright so I don't know if you could hear in the background so a read the the referenced if I. Kept it in place. Okay Nansen was asked a question by Joe Shoe Nelson's base was shattered. And melted away. So as soon as Soon as Nansen spoke basically than his, his expert directed experience of life. we it basically. Now why why am I saying that? Because basically then he's GonNa objectively. Look at his own life. Is objectively got to see west. Somebody else's coming from you split into two, but it's just skillful. Means is not the is anything wrong? There is just the light today I. Didn't I didn't know what to talk and I didn't really want to talk and part of it again is just i. just felt you know. How can I say something about this? It's it's solid. I just don't need anything as soon as I have to. Speak about something, am object to find to a certain degree. Now, it's a little bit painful, other wear. On into the weeds or Yeah yeah, but it's necessary. It's necessary slight. You may say something just to give somebody support. You know it's not necessarily you say something, but it is. You know so. We do all of these things like the me. Teaching is an unnecessary evil. And at some point I hope somebody else can do that. evil. So then I don't have the lab black. See, I'll get a poem. Sorry since. The end of the week for me. On this on this long groundhog day. Some of you may feel that way, too. ALL RIGHT SO Thank thank you all. And I e. I really hope that. All of us can can lend some thin deeply through this. Through this cove him as a very deep lesson, and all those things that come up negatively really use them as a teacher, and not the Aktau on them, but really look at them very very closely because they may be very helpful to US human being. I'm doing that, too. So.

We have amazing Joe six pack his books coming out on July fourth. Call socialism sucks. And I want you to summarize what the books all about. Bill. Thanks for having me on. Yeah, it is. It's called socialism, socks your money from your pocket. Really? The, the target is, you know, kind of a young person's guide to the foibles and Canard's of socialism, and, you know, kind of encouraged them not necessarily to be conservative, but the thing for themselves and not not following. It is a matter of titles, right? The word socialism, almost sounds nice doesn't, but what would you do alternate titles for socialist? What, what would you say? Godless lack of responsibility, because socialist means I want what you have one of the ten commandments you don't want to. Of basically tried to grab something from somebody else, covetousness. And in fact, you socialism is a form of geopolitical covetousness saying, I I'm jealous of what you have. I want it. I'm gonna geopolitically get it. And then I'm going to lay back expecting you to continue contributing to my existence. Now, I believe in social safety net for the poor, the mentally ill drag acts of sawn, but the idea of socialism is, godless, easiest system is always evil, isn't it? Yeah, absolutely. I mean that's, that's basically all about it. It's always a fuzzy sounding words. It sounds really good. You know, or a good cause for the poor for climate or earth. It's. It really boiled down to. Perfect example. He enters that his, his honeymoon in, in, in Soviet Russia, before it fell to understand, is the opposite of personal responsibility. Now. Given example, if I was going to fix the social safety net faint, healthcare, I would simply have something like a small VAT tax, and I would send money to the local hospitals have a room take care people who didn't have insurance, and then I would make sure that, that funded money would be for Castro for insurance for anybody, but I wouldn't have take away people's health insurance, and I wouldn't say, we're going to have a dictating health and human services say you have to be vaccinated. You can't go to school or you can do end of life decisions to the death panel. Like the ACA mirror out Affordable Care Act. You a they should add you in the front of it, and we have to understand that, that, that the quote right to kill babies, which is right reporting, they want to enshrine in national socialized healthcare, people reason my well. Well is now a front and center because once this is decided by supreme court. We need to get rid of, of gator Gennifer. Interesting from baiter gator like alligator. Likely in second term, Trump, the Rover swayed is going to be gone, and actor stage fights note, and find out in each state because New York state is not Alabama's reasonable and godly and other states trying to restrictions should be nobody than that they can kill even if they're conceived by rape, and incest, because, as a I thought this on the show and FOX running their mentioned host name is a female hosts on FOX, and she was cutting, cutting off the someone's comments, saying, look at your nature of being a human while you're Rick concede by rape, and incest is not dependent whether or not, you're human at the moment conception. You're called the moment of humanity. C O H, not seal. See candidate of conception that you're human. And the fact is the fourteenth amendment would protect you from the moment conception. The problem is you don't and a half generation, or generation human hybridization with animal DNA, and cyborgs cetera. The human race is going to disappear. So there's always a consequence stupid ineffective behavior led by. Like Bernie Sanders, Claus and socialis, okay containing. Yeah. And I think the point the point that you made her the little glint that I thought in there is when everything taken from the local to the federal level. And that's what's been going on the federal government than usurping power beat in banking, pharmaceuticals schooling. They were never meant or the run A-List, but they're like, mafia, the over the last hundred years, they've just sucked up all the power using money. You know that's the drinking age from eighteen to twenty one. Oh, we're going to hold back the money for your roads unless you do what we say. That's what it's all boils down to. It's very simple. And by the way, that's that's important, because local people vote like to do in Alabama, and by the please last forty six years, Rovers. Wade. Socialism, basically have Bernie, and he puts on this, I called potato head angry eyes and shakes hands up dollar, and this is how he's. He has no religious basis on it calls himself ju the unfortunate. This is the comments of my Jewish friend, Josh Bernstein on the third hour on. Monday says most Jews are atheists agnostic are just plain loose avert globalist, they're not Joe. I would, I would I would temper that by pointing out. The famous playwright David May gun, Gary Ross. He wrote an article in the Nikkei and the villager the village voice about Moshe's in Europe at design foods, amid Nitin skull, two thousand five seven six why I'm not brain dead liberal, and he explained why the Jews community in the northeast the big growth in bubble. They're not like the Jews anywhere else in the world. There's special class grow up in strange bubble. And it took until he was this fifty four that he grew up in that bubble. And they just got the reality is the perceive that in that bubble. So. I've been more. I'll be more descriptive. Are you familiar with two bucks called the book of the Cepheids IRA in the town would Ababba lot? The former now right? The seventies, I read these books, you'll vomit, if you don't bomb it, there's something wrong with you. The fact is a twenty seven and a half twenty years ago, I wanted to get a Jewish rabbi who just finished eight year yeshiva choice, very brain guy in New York, the teach me Hebrew, because I both Jewish and Cohen and keep your blood, I'm descending on my mother's side of the family through Moses going back to the Syrian Mary nights. And the fact is that he told me look, you people in America, especially leaving foolishness Judeo-Christian ethic. The fact is we coat Jews run the world. Okay. Through the banks cetera. Are in fact, as Jews are running world in as a proxy of the Jesuit so Jesuit control Jews and above them with what's called a joint account of thirteen runs earth. The fact is, we are wizards. He said, we summon demons, we're not at all. Like what you think we are? And I said, well, I know that I said, because I'm aware that fuses was back here today he would say you're apostate just like he did to the gesture to the. In the Pharisees, call them the synagogue of Satan. The fact that are real religious Jews. And the first religious Jews were killed were, they come by the Nazis, because one hundred twenty eight thousand of the SS were actually a religious, atheist agnostic, and communist, socialist Jews in Nazi Germany, people don't know that they also the same as atheist. Agnostic Bolsheviks, run by the Jesuits actually kill the rabbis, but the religious Russian ease of our docs, priest and anybody who believes religion and God was above the socialist date, so socialism and, and any kind of relief. And God is totally an athlete. You can't have a godly religious state, whether it's Judaism and believing in the God of Abraham Isaac vacant or Christianity. You can't have it in the socialist, communist state. It's not converted. That you can't say Christian socialist, you're not you can't be both. No you can't hundred percent agree. Expand on that. When you put on your book, people realize is not a minor issue. This is like a central issue, just like last week, we had on the program, we had on Sieff on our NIO talking about his book, about the hard times, make strongmen this issue over socially is like these central issue of the world because the globalist want polish it up and make globalism look like a good idea. If someone somehow equalize things, and everybody will be happy will all live in this kind of utopian world. And it's not it's allusive. Eric double world where they don't want life extension. They don't want give better health alternatives to the toxic drugs or inappropriate surgery. They wanna kill the elderly with lethal injections of morphine. Liked it into my parents and social system in Canada. They do not want, I had them by the way, a comment from someone who made a comment after video, I did last week we talked about that who agreed because they seen their own relatives killed the same way here in America. Now, an intensive est workers, a surgeon intensiveness burning doctor family internal medicine. I've done everything and I'm gonna tell. The system here in America is far better than Canada. But they're still is using Asia people out of insurance. Okay. The fact is social system is totally evil. Anybody who's thanks Christian and or support Bernie Sanders laws or any democrat, you're nuts. You're a liar. You're lying to yourself and you to wake up and smell coffee and may not be until you're your wife or near your death, or they decided to cut off your because because always too expensive to keep you alive. The state doesn't want to pay the money. Unique. We're the guys who are funding goal which is a factory that you were just ascribing with regard to the healthcare three. Absolutely. They're trying to turn it into a factory in the factory you do with most efficient. Not what does the best good. And you don't have free thinking. You just have components that knockout little individual pieces, right? Right. And that's Europe. People think in Europe, I saw I had one of my friend, Dr ever glacier, skip, the British system, back in nineteen eighty trained me in an allergy on Rickel message. And so when he was a triple Borden special, dermatology. Allergy and internal medicine. And I remember he was a British doctor was actually also Jewish his real job. And what he told me not a phony one. He, he told me how evil the system was and how you can still by the way Britain have private insurance. But caution arm and leg. If you're a Royal, you can go to homeopathic hospital whatever. But if you listen to bring Santa Claus these other people like Kamala Harrison zone, they wanna get rid of the private option. They're not saying, well you got hundred eighty million Americans keep your insurance, and we'll have a room will rent in a hospital, take care of people because right now you see as of nineteen eighty seven we passed the law, so the people would be staffed to journey in die bleeding outside the emergency room door. Now, I wouldn't start working in nine hundred eighty seven Gusta, Georgia emergency department, burn unit and my own private practice. The one of the senior nurses, emergency told me that, you know, last year before you arrived here Daego, if someone goes shot downtown Augusta Georgia, they were strapped into it didn't have insurance and they were left to bleed outside the doors emergency. That's okay now because the socialist. Way to your hospital after the ice you X amount of days or call rotating, they don't have on or were a piece of fancy crippled or the surgeon available. You just. The system in Canada is disgusting. I call hang the speed of light. Maybe need a cabbage bypass procedure, but they're not gonna give you alternative care. See you don't need via pass or alternative cancer treatment or you're going to wait forever for a semi elective, orthopaedic procedure like a total hip per fine, re blown backup because you're buying collapse, from us, you'll product destruction. So what I'm saying is the social system is disgusting. It's central control. It's forcing toxic vaccines, and his Kelvin, the elderly is not extending life span, and approving drugs and treatments, the dark bearing logic. But if you don't if you deviate and don't provide the care deviate by the health and human services or by the government. The doctor themselves can either be fine jailed or not paid, which forced him into bankruptcy, that frigging. The first thing the first thing that happened after Obama got reelected, I was sitting in a in a restaurant and a guy who's a doctor meeting group of friends. He walked in this guy was drink. Beer, beer. He walked over to the table with the glass of scotch on the rock and he sat down flam to down and the young guy. He's cardiologists thirty five years old. And he looked around. He said, the F word and said, I need to find another job, right? Yeah. The Democrats in most of the lot of the doctors in this country are either number one going to go bankrupt, you're gonna be so stressed out right now major stress rate now is dealing with insurance carriers. Now, insurance carriers need to have rules for the road to our Cobra pays deductibles are in saying that can be fixed with Brigham curry changes. They should pay doctors and hourly wage based on their specialty years of training cetera and the doctor should decide what the hell they're going to do it should not be decided by insurance carry whether they're gonna pay or not. That's a major stress for Dr doctors can't develop new treatment or other things. If I'm a cardiologists, and I wanna spend three hours with somebody pay them, the same as if you're still cutting their chest in pop in the crack. And I'm like lobster. But one of the same thing with social services was homeless people street groups of homeless. We talked about this in the last hour with Gary, Richard. Ronald the first group are people that, that don't have the skill sets to actually get a job in the hourly wages have not kept up with the. Cost of living. That's because we have too many regulations in places like California. So you don't even build homeless shelters for people have just lost their job or temporarily out of work, or they had marital breakdown don't have money and the second group where people are mentally ill. We don't have analysts they start closing mental institutions years ago. Most of these people need to be in a mandala, toossion, either on a day mental institution or need to be in their all time. And certain group of drug addicts dob giving people needles like San Francisco and trash defecation everywhere they need to be an institution. Any decision with a detox and get on sedan driving giving him needles. We're gonna come from. Yeah. That's really. Well, even cut the cost from simply back, I'll tell you how to cut the cost and make sure it's Ford -able for everybody. And it doesn't it's not gonna come. Yeah. Capital.

I wanted to expand on what's going to be in your book, because this book is important can pre-order it if they go into your website, and when as you address. Well, we actually had a little bit of problem. I original publisher just kinda went bankrupt and what works than other publisher now. So we have to clean up our trail, you know, but it will be coming out publish date is July fourth and just expand a little bit. Basically, the book does is kind of in a very non-academic, and that's why written by juice pack everyday language, it picks apart every aspect of socialism for multiculturalism to nonviolence to green technology, and it's not pushing the gender of conservatism necessarily or can't necessarily is flood, but it's more about commonsense. You know, we're not when I was a kid commonsense, prevailed, these days, not so much and. Common sense, common sense. Yeah, we'll both anybody was half a brain is. And so these kids are being fed through, they're not schools anymore. I call govern socialist domination camps and they're just eating because the parents aren't taking response. One of my favorite quotes ever was Mark Twain, I never let my schooling interfere education education comes from the home. It's grandpa and PA showing the kids how to shoot a gun how to survive in the wilderness, how to build a fire with one match. That's an education. Neutral, Medical University, and bring on Bryant people like yourself. We're trying to provide people with the tools to survive a world at wants to control them to terminate them early to steal their wealth and to make sure that they don't have decisions. And, and Tommy, the, the economy is the greatest thing that's coming on human race, including all social media, just tentacles of the beast system. And all the Intel agencies are involving the narcostate, which, by the way profits from getting illegal current event coming in from China because he giant profits, because they get their cut people don't understand the, the, the global status projected through the Intel companies now and even our Intel companies request China to make thirteen plus million Chinese on citizens. So if you're in China and become an unsolicited, you can't get on train planer, get healthcare, or even drugs for your for your for your healthcare issues, and you're unemployable people. Don't realize that's where we're going here in America, they using the lab of China, but they wanna bring it here too. And the probably socialism, communism are just spectra of the same damn evil mess, right? Lenin who said you know, the goal of socialism, communism and socialism assault sell after World War Two to the people of Europe to kind of go along to get along thing. But the thing is people don't realize that socialism. It's in theory, it sounds great. It's like this warm fuzzy wall, jello. They're just slowly engulf you kind of like the frog that you put in the pot and then the Boyle he'll pretty good for a while. But then, don't if I mean, the only have to look at, you know, any number of countries that, you know, about around the world North Korea, you know, that's where it goes and people laugh all the way to the Bank, did they hear Joe shoes? Expect know what you and I are we are not bigger frogs. No. Not bigger footing. In that pot. I'm not going to even if it's just toasty. Warm boiling yet. I don't care how good it feels. That's exactly right. That's why I do my concerts. I don't charge for procedure, I charge and Howard wage, and I'm not the super timekeeper. So when I do a full concert, it might take me through your for hours. Eight need to be timing, that have our apiece, and I'll start doing videos and reviewing need. More time. I'll tell you. But that if we moved to assist and I'm gonna say, how it fix each's include a border. Trump's got a whole plan now with immigration, it's going to allow merit not, they love the lottery system or chain migration to, to exist. He's gonna put people should do right now, before he gets a physical wall up just put up a cyber wall, you can put that up in two months, while he's putting this is Stephen stills slat wall up. The next thing needs to do is needs to get rid of these students here for thousand Chinese students are stealing our technology and get him out of this country. This should be here, merit only, and we should get calls. All these Chinese schools. Bala schools are actually trying to spread condoms, Steeler, technology and bring it back to China. We need to have. The situation where you have merit. I don't care what skin color or what nationality are the only group that shouldn't be allowed to get too freely. Come into this country, Muslims Islam and Judeo Christian ethics and costumer Republic. Do not mix period and people need to face this. It's like it's like telling someone or you're not dying of sepsis in the ICU that particular bacteria. We cannot like it's okay, even though it's killing you. It's still good. It's not good. Okay. So the people need to face Buzek, and that's why Israel's such hell right now because of his lung and the owners why Saudi Arabians tires owner allied with Israel is they're in danger of Iran and Russia. That's you only driven into the arms of Israel. These still don't have in their maps that Israel even exist in the map Saudi Arabian Qataris, and ever Everett's. And so on. So what is happening in a reality? Yeah. Oh, that's the problem. It's kind of, like when we were talking about in the last segment for the Braves about the Jews New York that grew up on the bubble. The same thing with the rest of this country. You've never lived at most people country, never lived outside. You don't know how the real world works. We penalize countries for paying whatever they call it, bribes them bribes through the rest of the world. It's called thanks, Sheesh. I mean go back to bible times. To see the shake without freedom camel train full of the Franken's murder and gold because your audience, and that's kind of the whole world works. We are the nominally and, and one other point that you made that I think very important is the immigration thing. Everybody's listening. Know these caravans we really need to look at is our path of Leland tree. I got I have pardon my digression there, but I have several passports, and it didn't take me ten years to get them just me a year or less our legal our system for legally coming into this country is. So whacked because of course it's on by the government. So why would it work properly? But if other countries can do this. You know that's the problem if I'm one of these four vs down third. I'm thinking about making to the US vein nine to ten years after I swim the river and get past the agents of living in the shadows four I could do the right way. And I could do it get it done in one year. Well, of course, I'm gonna do it. It's like anything you set up the conditions for success, and people will meet that, and nobody's talking about this. And I'm just thinking, if a simple Simon like me concede, this and figure this out how come nobody else because obviously, there's money involved and their scads of lawyers and bureaucracy that are supporting that broken. I mean, our health broken look at our immigration system, St.. Whether it's left or right, one have a borderless world. They don't want a nation of or Canada. They wanna have he calls zones free of Kennedy Mexico. Why the US drew hill? Yeah, the was z trees Trump put together. Yeah. Up the border wall has proper rules of the road for the trade, right? And that's the thing is a nation doesn't exist without borders. The Democrats don't want any borders, which means you don't believe in the nation of America. They don't believe that the rights Americans already here legally here, whether they came from wherever in the world from China anywhere has right to be protected from people that are illegal here, including criminals. Funny. Funny, flip side of that is just. Lizzy have deed around her house gate around these has they all do and so older zoos flood our system in creed pendency class. Like they worked the, the black community tour ever since Lyndon Johnson passes, quote, unquote. So Rights Act would eat call EM act and said, I will have 'em Vert voting democrat for the next two hundred years. The eighty years on I gotta ask myself was he wrong? It's the same game. It's the same old gruel or serving cold. And getting these people in and create a dependency class, that's what it's all about. And I won't say that half the pardon my French Republicans aren't in on the game. That's what it's all about get them in here. Get them dependent on the government it and you've got their generations behind them on your side. The problem is now a lot of that is the opposite side regulations. And Trump's got rid of a lot of wrecks but. Have bad advisers. For example, Nick, Mick Mulvaney, other pushing five network because tech companies basically don't have any medical concern over others gonna destroy, your got by on or caused the death of the, the bees or anything else. When I see happiness they removed science because the corporations are running everything including the banks, and that's by the way, not just unless it's on the right. And we're personally autonomy comes in and rule of logic and common sense should rule over to the left is communist. But also, what I call the social engineers round, the right as well, because that's their own version of bubble ISM to takes way. Tommy and power from people like us to, so it's not just a socialism, it's what I call the, the social banksters that are basically trying to have a Baxter induce social superstate that, that doesn't look like socialism, but incense the regulatory controls our winters banking, or travel, or first vaccines, or whatever, or even insurance carriers where they can deny care. Always regulatory things that are allowed, including environmental issues, so you can't build here, and there, for example, northern California now after the fires a lot of people can't rebuild our homes with insurance, and they can't get insurance actually insurance. Fact. Next door neighbor here a few months. Yeah. Because of the because the fire is a came by here over a year ago. I most insurance carriers wooden insurance home break directly beside us. Luckily we had insurance, so we haven't telemark insurance carrier that we carry now. So you get it. So there's an example up. There's, there's call social evil on the right as well as on the left, isn't it? Totally. That'd be cool, as they call it crew many capitalism and again, it is all about that. Oh, blows them, same nuts. It is about the federal government, usurp Bing, dour, and imposing rules and regulations on the insurance four on them that these companies go right? Minding CEO of a company would do these things federal government, didn't splash, cash out them. And so you have to do this. The housing crisis started. Other Jimmy Carter. It ran for forty years. And then it culminated in nineteen eighty or sorry in two thousand eight and they were selling these garbage what were labeled triple eight. That's what happens when the government gets involved easy. Well, our bottle that, you know, we have all AAA stuff I never invested in that stuff because I never understood what's behind it. And when it all unfolded, I, I was complete just side and everybody else. And when you. The news they were blaming the bankers. Oh, those evil bankers all the politicians, right? Left does evil bankers. We'll call them up here to Capitol Hill. We'll make them testify. Well, you know, you, you lying SOB's. You're the ones who told them to take substandard mortgages, and he would back it into. That's, that's kind of the at the heart of this whole thing. Follow the money who made the rules, the damn politicians, not the banks because if I was a Bank, and somebody came to me and said, hey, I'm this poor guy. I don't wanna get into this house. I would have said, you don't want. Sorry, look Jack, but the government came in and said, we'll take care of it. We'll grease the wheel. You're good, and we'll take a little bit of control of that stuff too. And. Republicans say that we I in other words, I see where the call social engineering on the right that's bad as wells on the left totally for example, insurance carriers right now have to high deductibles and copays, I simply changed. Look, you pay the doctors, Darnley wage, and you get rid about practice, and you'll all pathway so medic trained five tours of duty overseas aren't doing surgery into mash unit if they can master the database. They become a general surgeon, if they can go to a surgical center until they know how to do an appendectomy, or general, surgical procedure, or their owners for twenty five years, and they want to learn how to do not C-section section just like if your family darker, you can go to Texas go to a place. Learn how to do see sections near a rural area where there's no oppositition you're gonna learn to do C-section, what I see happening is what I see happening is, they don't maintain levels of competency. They don't maintain alternate power base to be able to have skill sets. The don't have an apprenticeship program to maintain the. Oh skill sets by either online training cetera. And as a result, we have system is falling apart, and you can reduce the cost dramatically, so everybody gets coverage. Everybody gets care. Everybody gets taken care of, and you don't have a top down control matrix system. And by the way, that's the left end the right. It's not just the left communists. It's a social insurance regulations on the right that evil to isn't it? Absolutely agree. More. When I call globalist banker and government politician. You know, universal hegemony that they want to control us, right? Then. None of our economy and make profit of right? Kurdi Vasquez, ASEM synergistic heart formula containing number of amazing.

Like the CF are the trilateral commission and the builder burgers, and the world housework musician the United Nations as well as on the left. So don't think it's just the demon rats. I called or the, the, the Democratic Party. I I've his name to the bunch of clowns. Latest one being the Blasio to actually join the thing these people should have calm ask side. They actually almost entertaining there. So. Evading aren't they? Oh, they're beautiful. I mean, I just hope that the who I call the occasional cortex at New York. I hope to God, she'd never like goes away because the pearls of. Larry that falls out of. Keeps on giving. Interacting, why up a Lucifer because you wind up taking her hands Reno things. I'm thinking you know, nothing Yuri stupid dumb ass. She's unbelievable, and she quote stuff like she thinks she knows about the end of the world, twelve years, and she's the crock run that, by the way, was a statement for twenty thirty collagen twenty thirty by the United Nations. Somebody has stirred woods. Supposedly hazard degree in economics from whatever government, socialist doctor-patient, camps you came out of and the answer to explain what the marginal tax rate is. And. That's. I got a new term for you probably like this, because I believe, in our cast terms of Chris less reality, all the universities in western world, now, just not a hero in France and elsewhere, I call the mega universes as professor defecates intellectually and his students have to eat his defecation, and if they paper. Presentation and their defecation smells looks and tastes like defecation of the professor pass if it does. Valda contests. Their professor or teacher. They're going to be failing. You're just not superior. I love it. Mega university. Eventually you graduate become a tense level maggot like your professors, and you get ten year at university to Rian doctorate, with your defecation. The next line of empty minds, ready to be filled with your bull. I love it. Thank you. Of fat, Meghan defecating on a paper and just like fecal matter. And then the students have yummy. Emme. Oh, you're a good student Yemi unseen, appear amid mind. Right. Yeah. Joyous. Little downhill. I tell people you say, I don't ask people to like me. Just ask them to respect me respect for two reasons. Number one, I present the chose and I present logic, and I want you, if you please to engage me, presenters and logic say, at Holland attacked Daego you talk over your gas. You talk to fast, thinking everything that usual as their luck if I talking about something, I know it or if you disagree with me. I'm open for you to teach me. I don't care if you got grades three and that's all you have, but you have a good principal, or how I can well to change my mind if you can prove it to me, but I find by large people don't in fact, the average person if they headed original thought in their head, which they don't in our world, their hair would go on fire. Their eyeballs would rotate knobs objections bones would dissolve. That's how bad it would agree with you. I would agree with you. If you limited that scope to the cities municipalities country. The country, I would disagree with you. Even. Rive the country because they have to work to live with. They have a farm or factory or whatever. That's why are real, people real people live in real world. Not an artificial subtle sumo world of a big city within going get, you know, a drink or food or go to shelter. Whatever where they don't have to actually have any personal responsibility. Thank you. Yep. So where do you think this is going before the twenty twelve twenty twenty elections? There's a couple of to call key points, number one protection of the unborn at the date of of, of humanity. Takale today of your conception, number two defense of autonomy. I see a ton of being attacked in every way look at the media companies from Facebook to Twitter they're not trying to silence. They're acting basically Trump needs to in his regulations need. So loud and be sued like any problems for millions or billions of dollars for violating our right to actually have a free speech and the third very. Surging is we need to have proper accounting when I hear, you know, all the Democrats starting they're going to have socialized medicine. Biden and bomber. They brought the Affordable Care Act in skull ACA. I called the Affordable Care Act and nobody's trying to defend this act yet they wanna have a new house care. We call Medicare for all the can't make Medicare for all. I've been paid for by us and still not great because you don't have supplemental insurance you're screwed. I spend more now with Medicare insurance. I did before I had Medicare insurance, but it's better to have insurance. I have some degree of atonomy than some socialize control freaks. It'll say you can't have this that Dr Diggle. We just want to kill you too old, and too wise. We'd rather the your but dies before you're eighty five or ninety five enough experience and wisdom, you can save the younger generation from our dose of called stupidity because their feet. The public, aren't they? I disagree a little bit was with you said there about insure is I do not have insurance and I chose not to have insurance when government will be you have to have insurance. I. I'm not doing that. Gonna burn enough money that I don't have to worry that it's something happens me, I will. And I'm not a rich man minded means on balking on it, but I said to hell with you. When the government tells me you something I fight back. Really? Medicare because I heard it but you're right. I think from days things. When I go to see my doctor, I see a functional medicine doctor, I just pay it. I don't go to a doctor under Medicare. I go to my functional mess. Don't they right? But what I wanted to I think everybody should have catastrophic. So if you have a catastrophic accident, or injury whatever you should have some catastrophic and. Or or I kick the bunker. At that point in the. It should be your choice. The problem is in America's the attack on Tommy is actually one of the worst attacks. And the social media in the increasing governor coach on the left and the right is part of the problem that includes by the way, Trump was five network. He doesn't realize that final layer of the Mark of the beast system, and total matrix is five and more reggae got rid of a lot of industrial regulation, so industry can get back, but allowing the, the social media companies, get away with murder is not okay. For example. I mean right. Remember his old buddy these to call a second brain? You know what I opened his government two and a half years ago? What's his name from? I remember. You know, the, the we call the social genius behind Trump basically made the statement that, you know, I called his second brain base. Why do I name blocked? My you're talking about much. Sure, I'm taking about. But. So basically, what we have the situation where Trump is kind of left was a lot of globalist around, like. John lightning Voelkel and from pale and many other globalist and these are using regulations in advice on the right, including, you know, trying to, to do you know, threaten more when really, they need to do economic policies could stop stuff like Russia and China and nukes and everything else. And we twenty. Because that was my thing when I have a friend and business partner who has no education whatsoever. I mean this guy came up rough, he was the first guy that we're all running all the candidates who said Trump's gonna be that guy. And I remember the things the it stuck with me because all my cooled employed intellectual friends business friends, all that they were talking about Rubio. They're talking about climate, actually all and this one guy, he put the coin on Trump after the first to be had. That reason. Yeah. And why? And here's here's as you point out. Closely. And, but here's some then that occurred to me the other day that nobody's talking about. Why do we have twenty? What do we have now twenty three democratic candidates? Getting all the money all the money and nobody's asking them. Are you gonna give that money back when you when you step down? Of course. They're, they're there for the money, that's all declined for. Do you think this guy name wherever Aurore Irish is can be who poses of? As with back. The game vote is gonna get back seven million dollars. He went through the machine. He's, he's seventy in Saxon. Is back. Right. But you'll be going with Armani of our money accurate. Well, here's what I'm gonna predicted for the twenty twenty election. Number one, the Horowitz Uber. And now this new guy Durham who's gonna start investigating the investigators. Do you see everybody including Clapper and Brennan going freaking out? Now, number one, you're going to start seeing some DOJ department national intelligence and FBI doing the perp walk and it's going to go all the way up to a Bob Valerie, Jarrett and Biden himself Biden's going to be in trouble. And by the way, I had somebody make comfortable video did week or so ago, saying, well Biden's, not guilty of something son. Yeah. He is. He's threatened the, the regulatory agency in Ukraine that if you continue to proceed going after my son with these regulatory investigations, I'm gonna withdraw a billion dollars in support money for Ukraine. So he used the office of the vice president threaten the Intel investigative agencies in Ukraine, so able to get away with murder with the deal, not only in China, but also Ukraine with the there. So this, this guy is. Dirty hands. Okay. Fines sneaky, dirty. Republican. You're exactly right. They're all comebacks. The Trump doesn't even take. Salary. What Trump amid loud people's ain't because Trump is competent and he's gonna like it. He's a bit of an ego maniac. He's not in our sisters difference. If you're competent, and you're actually a patriot which is Trump is he doesn't really care about the fact. He's the office of the present. He wants the presidency to do what the president should do. He's mentioned as if you look at video recordings tannin twenty years ago, he said, the same things ten fifteen twenty years ago is now in the White House is not different. It's the same news democrat. You made these comments remember before Republican, he was a democrat. So because it's business. Our country with founded on business. Largest visits honors as Americans got a businessman first greatest president. We regret is wanted. I wanted to become life Christian boys. Well, get good advice for people like me. So even better menu of things to do. Amazing book socialism sucks, July for is also.

Refining Our Activity

"Good morning happy. Mother's Day especially twelve months is important everyday really is mother's Day but this is a time to show appreciation so Just a momentary ACT OF OF BEING. A mother really has deep influences on on our society and obviously wanting to To raise a human being in a way that is going to be a benefit to everybody who is around you know. No matter walked to make effects on our society positive ways. It's a big responsibility. Also pleasure in many ways and obviously not being a mother. I don't not I'm not but you know. Appreciation is better than the the opposite. Same with everything. How do we really appreciate what we having from? Delays So I want to. I sort of open it up to I. Thas anything arising out of practice because we say in in in Zanzibar. He's only different from Buddhism. In the way that it's x-press the way that his cat's alive in each culture it is not tied to culture. So if you have any live questions in terms of practice please bring them if not. I'll referred to a case from the London century. Yeah Ju rush chance to Burger Hosa. Yeah well you know I mean it. Basically the root of of hosts on is means basically day off and an tradition but really what it means is one's own practice so there's obviously with with any sort of formal appreciation of practice the always pitfalls because if you always rely on the schedule for practice then when you have free time then it becomes more difficult for you to practice because you need to deal with things. Have the say the support people around you so look at it? Look what you really need to do is human being and then take care of those things is important in terms of say continuous not to just abandoned things and let let it go. You know because there is a certain. There's a certain aspect of practice which is a buildup slide. Especially if you're doing something like Cohen study is this certain intensity of concentration bills days off basically designed so that you can. You can somewhat chill outs concentration's rations and become too brittle in Japan. They use the analogy of temporariness sold. You know never how he made a saw but I do know brittle metal and flexible metal is if you have time the heat in which is more like training period all the weekly schedule in the middle of the weekly schedule. Heat things up you put yourself more into it. You develop that concentration and then say the days off for outside the training period times more to chill out and keep a basic contact on one's life so that begins to permeate all of your life and again you know just with the Saudis overheated goes brittle goes black snaps some people practice to intensely and then when it's time to chill out is that they they don't know how to do it. And so- concentration becomes more reliant on the schedule Rob than the one who is he is. He is through these on a momentary basis. So on day off. Yeah I guess. Some guests from relax. Take care of the things that you need to take care of you. Haven't you haven't done that and then just see how you can. You can enjoy Just just your basic awareness. You know it's not a matter. Fill in the space. That's the tendency now. I remember the Zen Central Los Angeles where in the in the early days that I was Especially the young guys you know we. It was almost like the schedules like an imposition. As soon as schedule was removed party. Is THAT THE ASPECT OF CELEBRATION? But there's also the dissipation of energy good to keep that buildup of energy and it doesn't mean there's going to be the rest of your life. Is that at some point? You see through the veil of your own thought patterns to to a deeper way of being which isn't contingent on experiences. Is that pot so use you know? Use the days often in way. And then then if you do that then you know intensely practice joy during the week and then you'll definitely need that relaxation at the end of the W- the end of the week. But part of it that is you also refine your activities that you do in a rub and trying to fill the space. Is that you you use that space to do the things that you really WanNa do. Rather than binge watching game of thrones. We really want to let fish but then again. Just see what the effects are in terms of your life. It's not the should be this way. It's just see see if you're trying to avoid something this deeper if you're not there's no problem but if if there's something that needs to be done rather than being covered up and make sure you do those things that need to be done yourself. Yeah good thing. Is You know what what day off it's just like now we're in terms of say if you look at professional athletes is the they don't train to the point of of of of overtraining to get to the point where you can actually relax in the midst of play and that's important so if you if you into regard You know practices living in itself. Quality of living. Don't mean doing certain things over other things the living in itself no matter what you do and how to bring to relax in the midst of that. Then that's that's really important. It's not it's not a matter of just full force of well no part of me just trimming away. The extra the tends to spoil our lives going back to. What's what's most apparent is that answering it. It's new so how do you incorporate things when they don't? I mean part of learning to relax where where you know wherever you are you know. What else raising my son. I remember the first four years of his life. You didn't sleep much. And he seemed to. He seemed to be awake when when? I was the one that was looking at it which is every other day you know so. Sometimes I just didn't get any sleep in that way but again eat pot of as was really come into the way. Why because it isn't as simple as that not putting into the if it was and it would be etc etc. You should know this is the way it is now. How can I enjoy the life that I have? And then so this a refining that goes on there in a lot of the X. access the extras again had to be dropped off so that I get rest when I get rest but a lot of that was around dealing with tiredness for for myself you know which which we in this case was I had certain prejudices around sleep. Anita certain amount rather than go. Well How is it sofa you know and if I need to do something just made sure I did it but if I had to be around machinery out to be very careful you know an and in time is that that it really wasn't too much of a problem you know but again is I don't know fix answer. There is just the raising up of all of those things is is important for us as human beings because then we get to examine them. If those things never raised up we never really see how we function on on Jurassic in that way. Excuse me in that way. Yeah and then. The other thing is the just this. This goes for fathers as well as mothers is the off you positively or negatively you know just hopefully they can put that into context that it is a learning experience. They don't have to do that if you if you do. This kind of an inadequate in that way you know. Yeah and the talent that therapist about you know how you know a package you know. We come positive and negative traits. Appreciate my mother for many many things. I also this Things you know but you know she's dead now and just I mean the NFL. The human being to raise the human being his monumental. You know they just as never forget that you know as a mother and obviously it does. It does an end in that way. Remember one of my Friends that I've practiced with lady for Mexico. She four daughters and she goes next time around. You can be. Mother most feel outweighs lot nicer being on the from the child side in many many ways in in that respect. But you know I mean obviously you know being a being a mother obviously is Is applicable to many aspects of life. And we have those ballpark points about compassion. You know we talk about compassionate. We think usually the feminine side compassion. No but obviously as a mother you have you have the masculine side to know. Sometimes lines that need to be put in that way so compassion is berry is very broad in that sense obviously its development in that way one you have no choice because you have that connection but at the same time as you have to get them. So they're independent in one way or another you know so is obviously a development skill. Skillful means that is ongoing. Okay so Deciding to talk on case from the gate will skate. She's Joe Shoes. Wash your bowls. The case case seven The case a monk as Joe Shoe in all an snus I have just entered this monastery. I beg you please give me instructions. Joe Shoe said asked sorry. Have you eaten your Rice Gruel? Yet the monk answered yes. I have jobs you said then. Wash your bowls among attains realize Asian homeward hope. Maybe he's doing that already. Women's Commentary Joe. Shoe opening his mouth shall showed his gallbladder and revealed his heart and liver. If the monk hearing it did not really grasp the fact. He would mistake a bell for pot which is actually fairly straightforward. You see not that that is a battle over there but it looks like a pop snow quite so clear. Okay so the bus just because it is so clear it takes us longer to realize if you quickly acknowledge that the candlelight is fire you will find the rice has long been cooked so you find that Illuminating this case does it need description. Is He talking about right? Gruel Rizal O'Neill we have for breakfast talking about you eaten since like very grandmotherly thing you know like a mother. You know eaten. It's very important that you eat why it's important that you eat staged exactly yes exactly. I mean that's pretty obvious in Josias. Pretty grandmotherly you have to remember. Is that this guy was before teaching is like a well. They re good example of traditional way of products and so he was enlightened. They say eighteen stayed with his teacher till he was in his late. Fifties like fifty seven stayed for three years while the funeral things would be done for his teacher and then you went on pilgrimage for twenty years now he could have been very slow. You know but he. He went around and he checked to see if they needed another teacher. In the teeth was that would be beneficial to be so then. He started teaching eight. They say and then he di Di dog twenty sous teaching forty years and he's regarded in Tang Dynasty. China's is one of the The Best Zen masters ever when he didn't really care too much about his. You know about how he's Temple. You lived off in the mountains and he never had more than twenty people. One of the reasons he he never had more than twenty people was. The site of the temple fell off and he goes. Don't don't put your energy into repair of it. You know. Just just put it into into what you regarded as practice. Somebody bought in this brand new hijab. Basically for teaching and he sold it and and then just fascinating piece of firewood on the on the leg that broke on each regular personality. Just just to say this you know. We can be very pleased about this person but you know he is is a good example. You know he wasn't very arrogant. You can see. He was He he appreciated practice. Appreciated The efforts of of people around him teachers and other teachers to any students as well. So you know this. Monk comes in and says just entered the monastery. I beg you master. Please give me instructions so this is the first thing he says. So what do you? What do you think he's really talking about? What do you think what are instructions to you are you? Are you doing this thing called San or is it? Something different. Came here wanting to figure out how to deal with on cop into digestion. Which is a big Pie still died yesterday my Zamira? She's teachings on one level or another. That was twenty four years ago. People tell me all kinds of things but only becomes apparent after a certain amount of digestion. It's important you know. Not a whole bunch of teaching. Just get enough enough that you need that. You can digest tune bug. She just gets in the way because stuck in the head digestion. Have you eat your rice gruel? Yet have you digested? The t-shirts you've been given is is. The is the teaching in in the things that you do on a momentary basis. Do you place value their places somewhere else. You know we. We just went through those floods and That was here Dan he was he was saying you. Add always understood the practices daily life but now I really understand. The price is daily life. You know one of the big things that came up from this time. It's it's not a matter of events is just delivering itself. That's that's the emphasis. School makes it very fundamental used for masters also the hungry or yeah. I mean you know culturally to just look at this in Zen tradition. Is that when people would talk about? How long did in a monastery say? How many meals that he had you know so they would you know would say four thousand some some no but how many meals have you have? What have you really taken in but again this this is this is one of the the The difficulties like in the verse Mu Mon. Who wrote this in the Eleventh Century? Patently this was the last collection of Collins before China was occupied by the Mongols. It said just because it is so clear it takes as long to realize it if you if you quickly acknowledge the candlelight is fire then you'll find that the rices long being cooked. It's a once a home in some life. You're already this way. No just going back to what the Buddhist at the wonder one. This is nothing more one wonderful. Then I all beings to great earth. The wisdom virtue of the awaken wants US nece but we overlook that I am awake into us and we put it in the future when I become awake because we think awakening should look like something else and we create this whole level of suffering rather than really Latin that aspect in but it is difficult to let it simply because we would like it to be a better way different way waiting for society to change. Wait until we got some respect waiting till the weather's better invest another story from from tradition to though is One of one of the things that they would use it. A Haiti monastery is the weather in terms of practice. So this this one Buddha's enlightenment session. Beginning of December. The the teacher that was Kinda Lazy he just he just opened all the doors and windows and newsline the third or fourth day and he's like minus minus Tan. Something maybe eighteen nineteen hundred height and the people decide that just freeze it because they can address co they can only west things who got layers and lazy probably putting all of the layers of clothes on you know they've gone or at least you bonds and Komo knows and stuff like that until till like somebody was driven to complete to the extra not singles. S fucking call. He goes when you say this is. This is the thing we overlook the basics of our lives. We don't value what we already have this thing like mother's Day. Is You value mothers? Maybe most of the time you don't even give it a thought but it's raising up that aspect appreciation not only of others of one's own life while this month may be looking for. Oh please give me some instruction tell me about the emptiness of the five conditions. You know you know so. Get some good ideas about what you know how. Things can be improved very obvious. Yeah Okay then. Wash your balls. It's very obvious. Practic- quench practice. We do this then. We have lunch you know but then the attention really should be on lunch and enjoy lunch unseen what practices in the midst of eaten. You know and then whatever occurs and sequentially. That's what the practice is. It can't be another way because it isn't in a you know just like like people come. I say a retreat. That will do here. And then people think that the retreat over a twelve o'clock or whatever but then this cleanup you know. But it's life is equal. Attention should be done to the cleanup and then taking taking care of putting things back making sure he's taken care of and then in time what happens in terms of one's own life is the every activities important resting is important. You know it's not country. No well when I get to so and so I will practice or when no practicing occurring so like when you rest really rest enjoy yourself. You know. See what life is at this moment in time. See if you can escape your original cell flip it over rather trying to find yours trying to escape it flip. It is important to play these games. Because then you'll see the all of these things are just games. Life occurs whether we like it or not the stream of life constantly flying you come always be objectively looking at things in China to appreciate something else is just immerse yourself in life in itself in the washing up and you know wash up see what you mind goes to the soul much that can go on. Cbs reflective of the reality. This occur at any given time so much fun said yes I have. So what is that digestion? When you really digest today how does say enlightenment? Show in terms of one's own living. Can It really be tied down? I mean that's a good. That's a good start. Remembers in Lightman isn't a state shedding light onto a circumstance. I mean some sometimes circumstances very difficult. We we Tend to mistake. Have in a the things feel good right all the time. That's not so you may be really trusting in in your own instinct. Tom Something and holding to what you really really feel is true to your own bones. Still doesn't feel right but the important thing is how much you really do that. Really trust in that then. There's no regrets. No matter how easy or hard it is and as we know in life you know sometimes you know just like with. Eaton is licensed tons of food taste. Good you gotta learn to get past that if you if you need to eat something that's nutritious you can see all kinds of things in it. It doesn't mean that he's fixed him more way. I remember in the In the LA riots. Where WE'RE Z? Cla and some people wanting to escape. There's no guarantee you escape into something. That's better but the important thing is. How do you do the best that you possibly can within those circumstances and then learn from it the only ideal in life is how life is? That's the only thing and how much you really trusting in your in your own practice realization. You know how much you apply that new questions of to this point is it also like the evening. Your Rice is just just to be taking exactly. Yeah I mean. Some people can't even do that. You know from superior to continue. Just you know if you're lactose intolerance and you keep your mach exactly. Yeah exactly unless you had to learn what works exactly by being aware to your Of Your own body. You'll get that you know people come here go. This isn't like age fussy relevant if these expectations are how can you take it in? You know the important thing is wet wherever I stand them practice occurs. It's not all the time or the place because those things never exist ECON economy. Just well he and I hear over and over like studying so and so accessible then the same thing is. Have you eaten yet? Allowed that in because a lot of people that just interested in how? It appears on the surface. They don't dive in and see how that really is and the next big lead to express that truth whether the other person's except that are not the question in light it is it. Is it something that can be? Lost pained the periods of Mike McClure as well. That's something you could find out for yourself. You know what I mean. It's it's not. It's not that is the awakening in itself is is this. Can you lose that? No but you can get lost in pool but true. You know what we say true. Enlightenment is the You. Don't give yourself that that option of Falling into things of course offering is always that you know in many ways. It's just like standing on on on on on an edge. She can see enlightenment delusion but you can learn to use delusion. Enlighten wise as people can can use enlightened experience to create delusion by trying to fix it and put it in quantify it. You can't do that. You Know Enlightenment is is. This is the experience of living in itself without without an escape. There's no escape from this tried. I've tried many years how to escape this very Har. How'd you escape this but if you think there's something else that's delusion? Dilution is a great word it means splitting the light. So I'm here. I wish I was in Hawaii but it doesn't work it just doesn't work you know on the other hand is that you can use delusion to to benefit to you. Know like we We usually regard ordinary kind of conversation about all kinds of things as delusion but you can recognize the delusion of a building building bridges bombs with with With one another talking about things of common interest. It doesn't mean you have to be stained by you can use those things building contact an understanding of somebody else and you can read all kinds of things into it which will be beneficial in terms of a relationship. You know. It doesn't mean that you have to make these hardened pass lines in these things but not be afraid of delusion but it doesn't mean that you have to act how on those things either no so the thing is those things but you don't need a hard and fast thing. Yeah I mean line so what? What does that do so I'm deluded. So what the phrase of my Zamira she said you know said. Are you enlightened? He said No. I'm thoroughly deluded. And that's great. You know it's like why do you need something else? Why do you need a shadow of enlightenment delusion? I'm thoroughly doing what I do. You use the word. Dilution you can use the word enlightenment that just ideas now. The thing that the Buddha did you could take his word for it that he was in line if you wish but it was his activity t the was the thing that has come down to the present day. The wasn't a day where he didn't practice teach and teach him basically was contact. Contact with people navigate upon that navigate. And you know they say died when he was about eight something. That wasn't that wasn't easy to do. He showed up. That's the biggest part of his teaching and we tend to overlook that biggest part of being a mother is show up. You know you're always that you're always teaching whether it's positive negative. You know in in terms of a teacher. I am not a teacher if I don't show up because I'm not teaching teaching the way you know. I mean you can't help but be new you. I used to this still teach on that level but this is the important thing is a mean dog and probably messed Adoga. Who is born? I think he's twelve hundred. Died in about twelve fifty two or three. It's hard to tell with the Japanese because they start your age with conception not not birth so my zoom euro. She was what six sixty five in Japan? But we've got to sixty for our age so you're going to do that translation and absorb losing. It must've Dogan said practice. Realization that hyphen hype. No Dash Dash things dash practice realization. The practice this realization not realize that's GonNa come or is in the past practice this realization over and over what makes that work is wholeheartedly put into practice. It's not distancing when I become that we'll be able to do that is no practice realization this moment in time and that includes all. It's not just well. I'm done now. I'm enlightened you guys. You're going to struggle through. This is that we practiced together no matter who is here. We practiced together sometimes. That manifest is great cooperation sometimes conflict. But he's still the practice in the midst of that so that we can all learn. We can all move forward in that process from beginning to end that. That's what was passed on to me by my own teachers. So that was his main thing was. I was a practitioner. Second he was a teacher. The practice went on from beginning to end. It never ceased right from the beginning. I'm still doing the same things I did when when I when I first started practicing first time aside eating going to the bathroom working flap in the lips. You put the emphasis wherever you want. But it's all life you know this is. This is beneath my dignity is. Is it really if you want to do anything then? There's not really a problem if you draw those lines. I shouldn't do this do that. Is that then? Perhaps Spicer practice become unavailable to it becomes a much narrower thing whatever is in front this is practice if this is happening in my life this is what needs to be taken care of and again this failure the success all of these things apart of living but the important thing is low keep on going over and over see where we and then josue opening his mouth showed his goal bladder and revealed his heart and liver the monk haring it did not grass really grasp the fact he would mistake. Abell for pot and that's what we do this human beings you know we have this Wonderful Life. I mean Belen apart you know they have the right place in fact Some some really good if you if you hit them you know. I've never actually cooked him. One of these these you know but the but the thing is you know we have again. This is a valued thing that he's put a note he's value in the bell over a pop in this in this way but again is no matter what life is and this. This would be a Mike criticism of this is that you may regard yourself as not being what you would like to be but you have to learn to value what you already are and what you have nobody in this universe since the beginning of time has been you. I mean how. How do you value that? I mean can you go back? No we can't this is this is. This is truly a unique experience that each person has. You can't put yourself down for doing. You can't be anything other than you are. So the important thing is to shed light and see how that thing functions one of the one of the reasons that we can we can relate to one another is that we have similar experiences. The mind works in similar ways. That's you know that's the way I still bring up these these these cases from you know again. This is Joe Shoe actually lived in nine nine century. Someone like that. So eight something. And he's saying things that we still experiencing today a lot of people say she's acculturated to that particular culture. You know this is very similar we today. We do some things that they do. You know. There's nothing new age about this. You know he's living human beings we take care of things. How do we? How do we really appreciate what we have? And they all comes down to that again. Joe Shoe basically. He's just putting it back to where we stand appreciate this. If you don't have appreciation what you have you can have everything in the world. You don't appreciate it then. There's GONNA be problems. I mean this one. One of the reasons the say ecologically and society now. He's we don't appreciate where we have all the efforts that have gone into it. You know for you know. It's just like all these. These people are all the we can't learn from history because that's not what what's happening now can learn much simply because the human mind is is very similar you know they say they say that I think he was like seventy five thousand years ago when the modern wholemeal Homo sapiens. Really developed saying if you gave one one of those seventy five thousand year old well actually wouldn't be said if they will. Now you give them a cell phone you could teach him in twenty minutes out of use the same mind basic. We haven't improved in that. Of course we can't do that but you know just please give me. It's just we are the same humanity in that way but we had the same diseases which is thing. We don't appreciate what's in front of us you know. It's just like this thing. Make America Great. You know America's great you. There's no need to make it something else. Make it in somebody's image recognition of what we actually have the country that we have the society that we had the great experiment that it is trying to make it make something like putting a another head on top. We don't need it. You know we will ready got this but again. It's that disease the human beings you want something better rather than seeing what we have. There's no problem in making something bad about i. You have to see what you have the same mentality where want to make it a bit easier in Africa. So the they say well we need better agriculture so we sent him a whole bunch tracked his over there and then run out of gas in the same position. It's not really looked out. What do we need as human beings wise the next step that we need? What is now looking at the circumstances and the situation that we already have and in many ways. You know the the beauty of Joe Shoes. He's just saying the obvious. Just look at what you have over and over and over then then he points up to now going to finish all right. Well thank you and again. This appreciate our mothers of all shapes and sizes.

It was a shit show for a lot of us. Individually collectively universally spiritually mentally physically and emotionally But that feeling of a fresh start new start New opportunities new new room. You know to just do things in a different way and have a different mentality and You know develop some sort of new faith in new belief I think you know. I'll support that promote that. Because you know as you all know. I have that same type of Way of life and way of living you know i. I can't wait for a new week to start our new month to start because it sort of like a transitional stage for me you know and i am sure there are a lot of you out there that can relate to that and i can relate to you So cheers to two thousand and twenty one. Let's get this started. Welcome to episode thirty eight. The last time you heard from me You know. I was announcing our Our first official sponsorship here at the who and how club with man's gaped so we're going to touch base on that and just you know shout them out a little bit later But honestly happy new year. Happy new year to all of the listeners in the supporters without all of you. The man scape sponsorship probably. Would it be possible. So i have to show my gratitude for that but i did that already in episode on episode. Thirty seven So let's let's just run with the show you know run with what we got us what we got and promote what we have and celebrate our accomplishments this year Yeah give me one second okay. I'm back Just had to deal with the puppy Speaking of the puppy apollo You know we haven't spoken in about a month or so. I needed to take a little break During the holidays and stuff we all deserve a vacation and some time off to recollect ourselves and just get our energies. Backup and prepare for the new year But last month month of december That's the month that apollo my little puppy my little basenji boy baby boy. Basenji basenji god As he is on instagram It was his birthday last month. He's born on december fifth now. Last year i picked him up in february But he's born in december So december fifth was his first official birthday. A december fifth twenty twenty and You know. I finally kind of exposed him to the city downtown. You know took him out. took him shopping. Got him a few things You know we had just beautiful day and you really behaved himself. I was surprised But it was a cold cold day. From what i can remember so I'm just it's cool to see your pet. Your puppy your companion your friend grow. You know. I remember when he was just a little thing. And i held that like he fit in my palm When i first got introduced to him you know. I went up to see him At the breeders house my cousin. Joe joe a shoutout to joe joe shoes on the Her and her sister angelique over from the show Few episodes ago on the family episode. Go check dow is hilarious but Yeah it was just. It's just been cooler. See apollo grow in his personality is coming is just forming and shaping every day that i'm with him and we're developing new routines and stuff like that so his brain development. You know this for this breed. They're very difficult to train. That's what they say. I i made it a point to train him without treats and without like you know rewards. I wanted to train him without that stuff. First so that. When i actually give him something and you know he'll appreciate it more But he has such a personality. He reminds me of me and a lot of people that get around him. Say the same thing that he reminds them of me. So i think it's mission accomplished. I'm raising my first quote unquote child in a sense so But i'm doing it solo. It'd be nice to have low mom Loma around So we raise him. You know two heads are better than one but I'm living the solo life right non single life and that's really cool to But we'll talk more about that. As the episodes progressed the twenty twenty one episodes of course shout out to my single people women and men living that life on which you and i Since we last spoke. I've been indulging in a lot of hell's kitchen. You guys know gordon ramsay. I can't stop watching the show on season. Seven of hell's kitchen the american version Because i know he has a bunch of other like Like the european versions. And i think those shows are sort of laid out very differently and the structures of those shows that i've watched in the past like when he's in in his hometown and in europe and stuff like that. They're they're very different. I forget the There's also like kitchen nightmares So yeah those show. Those episodes that show is sorta structured differently. But i'm watching the american version of hell's kitchen The one that used to come on Fox so thankfully and has all of those Those seasons and i'm just indulging away it's the show i'm watching right now I did watch steve mcqueen's small acts That's also a available on amazon right now With like it's like season one but it's a series of movies that he shot for those who don't owe steve mcqueen as He's the one who did Twelve years a slave. I think he also did widows which is a really cool movie that i loved. That came out a couple years ago So he shot he. He's from britain as well. Just great segue from going going from gordon ramsey's ramsey to that but I would suggest looking up a small acts. He's a great director. And i watching each film that he shot for this one season that he did. I think it's five or six quote unquote episodes. But they're in movie form and their movie length there like an hour and change John boyega is one of them as well which touches on some really serious subjects But focuses on like caribbean. Like people of caribbean background living in england and in london sarah and wet the things that they faced. A couple of the stories are true stories. i think a couple of them are original Telling but It was good substance and especially with where we're at in life right now and the things that we're seeing And the struggles that you know. Black folks are going through It was good to take sort of like a blast to pass a blasted a pass because the series focuses and each movie focuses on time in the past not. It's not set in the present. It's you know. I think in the seventies eighties that each story kind of takes place in and what people of caribbean this hour going. Through at the time I don't want to give too much away of each movie There was probably one out of the six five or six that i didn't I didn't indulge in. i just wasn't feeling and it was in my vibe but for the majority it's just great fell markets. Great art and i think if you know who he is what he represents and you know the stories. He tells through his his films. You'll enjoy small acts so go check that out. But yeah hell's kitchen you know outside of my podcasting and my artistry i am a manager and the social services field and I don't know i've been taking a lot of pointers from curtin ramsey and how he deals with people not the aggressive side. But damn i get it. I get it. He's just so lucky to be in that field and to be the master his of his artistry in his what he created. You know with hell's kitchen and all of that because he could just be whatever he wants he can be himself. He can express himself out of frustration in my field. We have to hold our tongues. We have to hush we kind of have to cater to the people our managing. Because you know there are a part of unions and I'm not afraid of any union. Obviously but you know some folks are and when you're in the management you've got to tread carefully kind of coddle folks and baby them at times and i would. I would give anything to just be gordon ramsay for one day just so i could just say exactly how. I'm feeling what happened. Thinking to those who i manage just any work environment really I actually love the teams that i work with for the most part so Not to my team specifically in my field. But just in general i feel gordon. Ramsey's pain at times. So that shows really cool and that the competition of it all is really inspiring just to see people push for what they want. It's very inspiring So if you have time go watch some of that to watch. Small acts for some substance. And if you're feeling competitive and had that those competitive juices flowing in you for the year two thousand twenty one. You need some inspiration. Go watch house kitchen. What else can i speak about. Okay so recently announced my ep. That'll be dropping very soon Called maryland's son which is sort of like an ode to my mother I released the cover art to that so go look at that on my instagram. Only one heiress and l. y. The number one a. r. y. s. As in my first name of course You'll get to see the cover art that was created by Will you'll see the artists. I don't wanna give everything away. I'm going to be promoting it more this week. shout carlos who carlos are who you know illustrated the cover art for me and you know. I think he has a great talent. That's why i hollered at him for the longest while. I was waiting for the right artists to to come across To help something for me and that was worth you know supporting so He brought a vision of mine to life on the cover art and represents more than just you know just me being on the cover art so go have a look at that I'm working on new music as we speak Shout out to the council. Um you know. I got my beats. I'm working and we're looking to drop this month so just keep a lookout. I'll announce official dates very soon. But yeah i released the cover art to that. And i'm feeling really inspired if we're talking about inspiration. Inspiration is key for this year in my life especially because you know. I am an artist. I am a creator and their visions. That i have there. Are you know. I see things. I see things for myself. And my my creations that i brought to life you know this podcast platform even though covert is happening. You know like. I can't do everything that i want to do. So i'm gonna work with what i have and that's the goal for twenty twenty one in the mindset that we gotta have so let's work well we have So maryland son's going to be dropping soon You know more episodes of the podcast. Unfortunately are biweekly Artistic events are or creative events are put on hold due to covid. We're going to. We might have to find a new venue if things open up. But we don't know when things are going to open up. And i refuse to do any type of zoom zoom event. Because you gotta feel what i have my ideas and my higher in in person and over zoom you. There's just a bit of a disconnect. You know what i'm saying. So i i will never reduce the quality of bess to that In my opinion it's not a doubt down anybody who is doing that but it's just not the same and i'm sure those folks doing it can also agree to that but you want to keep people engaged. So i'm gonna figure out new ways to do that. And i need all of your help to to to you know any new ideas that you have. I'm always welcome to it and open because this is not just for me. It's for you guys. This is my therapy. Of course but i pray to god that when you listen to my show You learn something you feel inspired as well and you pursue something and you you push yourself you know. I want you to listen to my story and listened to the stories of people that i have on this show and get inspired and push yourselves. We're going to talk about the bad. The good the negative the positive the ups the downs. The left's the rights and the all around the loop de loops and all of that Speaking of which i have started scheduling guests For the show So the next episode. We're going to have a guest. I've been also booked for a couple of shows this year As a you know people want to interview me on their podcasts and stuff like that. I'm really moving up the ranks ladies and gentlemen only thirty eight episodes in. I got my first sponsor you know like things are moving. We're moving and you're moving with me. I'm moving with your moving together. We have to be the definitions of movement this year. So row with that mentality. And i'm happy and i'm proud of myself. You have to be proud of yourself as well Look at all that you've accomplished look at the things that you've made it through and quote unquote survived through. you know. I hate to use the word survival. Because i don't want to look at life as as if we have to survive twenty twenty. We didn't have to survive. But it's it just sucks that we have to look at it that way but you know what i mean. don't reduce your life experience to just simply survive or simply survival. You know lake. We're doing more find your purpose where meant to be here. Were meant to go through these things. So it's more than just surviving the day Were meant to be here. We gotta use our time wisely and do something with this energy and our presence on this planet. Couple new podcast that i'm listening to right now. I am listening to quest. Love supreme His podcast for those who don't know who quest love is. He's the drummer in the roots. The band the roots. There's black thought and qwest's love who are sort of the face of the group they've had many members in the group of four including scott storch raza who was a big or is a tremendous beat boxer Scott storage he produced beats like you know Make it rain What else. He was really pretty much a part of the terrorist squad and in a sense He made make your rain. Fat joe He also did lean back You know he's made many many heads and you know lately he's coming back and stuff like that which i'm really happy about. Because he's a great producer and he worked with dray very closely in the past and he a lot of those. Dr dre beats scott. Storch stuck scott storch as attached to so long story. Short scott store choice to connect all of this. He used to be in the roots as well but quest love. Is the drummer with afro. For those who don't know Yeah he has his own show and he's kind of talking to a lot of the people in the industry will end sort of revisiting stories from you know like i love the conversations that he has with the people whether it's sitting with executives or artists or whoever and just picking you know peeling the The industry back and stories that occurred through time and things that he's witnessed or you know that he's curious about and i love it. I love it. I liked the conversations that are being had on that show because it's full of substance and it's love you know history and i love. I love hearing information about the music industry. Whether it's past present or the plans for the future so i'm listening to that right. Now another podcast. I'm listening to Which is another new. Podcast quest loves been out for a while Not too too long but for a while but not as Schroer as i mean this show that i'm about to mention has been out as long as quest loves but rashida jones and bill gates has a new podcast call. I think it's called bill gates and rashida jones. Ask big questions you know. One of the biggest questions they had or the one of the episodes besides that i liked was can people really change And they invite other guests on the show so to hear the the back and forth between rashida jones daughter of quincy jones and bill gates out of all people like. It's such a random pair up. But i it's so necessary as well and having the Both perspectives and they're both you know. Rashid is a creative. I look at bill gates as creative as well. But he may not look at himself as that and him being that tech giant and her being more of the art artists on the artists side speaking from that perspective and that female perspective as well like. She's so smart. I used to have the istat the biggest crush on So just hearing her. Speak with bill gates It's very informative but they only have a few episodes out. I think they didn't. I don't think they release a new one this week. I think maybe they're still on holiday. I dunno holidays. I don't know But they usually released their episodes on mondays. So i know that one didn't release wasn't released this week so anyway if you're into learning new things and hearing rich people talk about everyday life stuff and listen to that show Is that a laughter that we should employ their hold on. It's not even a real joke. I can't wait to get people on the show again. And have someone to talk to instead of talking to the air talking to all of you but i'm also talking to myself and these problems that i keep filling in like the hand claps and laughter and stuff like that. I don't think they'll be as enjoyable by myself. Just sitting here Hitting these buttons. And just you know just putting these sound effects in there. I need so many janning some feedback with somebody else sitting across me over the phone on the show so i could. Actually you know these. These sound effects are warranted and will prove to be useful in certain moments and stuff like that trying to be the ultimate producer this year Speaking of sound effects though another great segue. I'm actually recording this episode on the pod The zoom pod. Track p four. Now i had mentioned in previous episodes that i was ordering new equipment. That's going to make my life ten times easier when doing episodes or recording episodes whether it's for myself or You know going to people and the guests that i may have on the show and stuff like that. I used to lug around my big My barringer mixer and my and all this jazz big laptop all that jazz. I'm not going to have to do that anymore. With this new equipment that have attract before. Look it up if your podcast producer. You're looking to You know make your life much easier or if you just want. Simple sort of Some simple equipment and just do everything in and have everything all in one place than i think. This is a great you know this is. I'm not sponsored by them at aub. Just plugging i want. I want to show you that. You could do it too so as soon as i heard that they were releasing this i ordered it and because cova it because of covid was on a delay but i finally got it. Today's my first episode recording off of it so hand claps for that. Okay that's enough. Yes so the pod. Track p for the zoom poject p for it allows me to have the sound effects all in one spot. I could still have four guests on his show at once And gives me my own. You know gives us volume for each Each mic input. And it's just beautiful. I just am control. I'm literally recording off this little device. And if i wanted to go meet somebody today and go you know interview them. Or whatever. have them on the shaikh literally. Throw this in a knapsack with microphones. And that's it and we're good it's battery powered and All you gotta do is. Put your st carton. And it'll save all the fouls onto it. Then when i go home. I could go into my program that i use that. I use for editing and stuff n Edit all there. If i wanted to or if i felt like you know i had the episode. You know here like it's all good. I don't need to do anything else. No editing or anything. I just take. Sd card out. Put him into my laptop and then just directly uploaded to all of my podcast platforms at the shows on. So this will make. This is already making my life much. Easier in a feel feel lighter. You know. it's a good way to start the new year. So look that up. If you're interested in making your life easier as well when it comes to podcasting if your host. I wanna shout out the universe for a quick second shutout. God whatever your beliefs are i champion as long as you have some sort of belief. That's all i care about. I want to share what my beliefs are for a quick second I use the term. God because i don't know the real name of my created you know god is like title in like father like manager like son like wife. Whatever that's high look at it So until i know that the real name. When i you know i could read one hundred bucks and whatever it says. I'm just not a guy. Who believes anything until i experienced it for myself. I know that i've experienced god quote unquote. God let's use that term today you know just for lack of a better term in my own way And the universe and all of that to me. It's all connected. The trees the animals the earth. The sea air the sky. It's all connected but there are a lot of things. I don't know that there are a lot of things we all don't know and i'm sick in twenty twenty one. We're not gonna let whatever people think that they know are feel that they know we don't have to let that you know sort of soak onto us or bleed onto us. We can have our own beliefs. Even if there's a group of people that believe in the same thing you don't have to believe that that thing you could believe whatever you wanna believe in So that's what i believe in. And i think that my creator of the universe and all that jazz is really blessed me and has allowed me to be on this microphone today to just speak to all of you. You know that it's the little things that we have to acknowledge and appreciate shall preparation for so. I'm gonna take this moment to just say thank you.

Yokoji Zen Dharma Talks

What Can We Hold On To?

"Welcome to the yo. Koji then mountain center podcast every month. We share at least one new talk on the practice of zen buddhism at c. m. c. dot org slash podcast. You can also find us on itunes spotify and all other podcast apps if you find these talks to be valuable. Please consider supporting yoko. Cheap by donating cam c dot org slash tony. We rely on your support to continue sharing this life-changing practice thank you. We hope you enjoy the talk. Good morning good to go see well can. Can you hear this sounds like it. So we're here would just finishing up the training period on obviously those times for heating practice and time so cool in it down so with century into that cooling down face but What's most important is just to thank the the list of characters in the training period so this was Joke is first time of running the The training period needed a really good job As i expected. I cannot just went. It went to expectations. Then he didn't fail in that way and also to To staff She stolid y'all bouts had trainee to mock who was thrown into tens of did a good job and nobody died. So you know that's always a positive on those lines and say gakuen came up and joined us for the entire training period from the Long beach chess soto's and temple And then everybody that that helped to support it during this period and that gratitude anything like it. It's important because without without people ascend to wouldn't run and obviously for all of you that have participated in whatever way that you could today. I want to talk about. The supreme way knows no difficulty from the blue cliff record case to simply because it seems very reflective reflected with reality so i will start with the with this case then. Hopefully they'll be helpful. As some kind of encouragement so the introduction the universe contracts the sun moon and stars go black even if blows of the cane shall light rain and shouts thunder. The still doesn't measure up to the business of the transcendent methodology of zen. Even the buddhas of the past present and future can only know for themselves. Even the zen masters through the ages have been able to bring it up entirely the entire buddhist. Canon cannot explain it thoroughly. Even zen assists with clear is come. Selves saved themselves completely. When you get to this point how do you ask for instruction even to speak the would. Buddha is dragging in mud soaking wet. Even say the woods then is a total embarrassment. More developed people who have stood it for a long time. Do not need to wait for it to be sad. As for the youngest students who are just beginning they should investigate thoroughly the main case. Joe said the supreme way is has no difficulty it just dislikes choosing a soon as thera would spoken. This is discrimination. This is clarity. I don't. I don't remain within clarity. Can you value this without reservation. The mon cast since you do not remain within clarity. What do you preserve joe shoe said. I don't know that either the monk said since you don't know why do you say you're not in clarity. Joshi said you've posed your question. Now you can go. That's what happens when you've been around for a long time. You can do that kind of thing. Thus the supreme way knows no difficulty. The words australia the speech is straight. One has many kinds to have no duality at the horizon. The sun rises the moon sets before the balustrade the mountains deepen and the water chills when consciousness. The skull how can enjoy exist. The dragons howland. The with the tree is not evaporated difficult. Difficult discrimination or clarity. See for yourself. So that story the case in its entirety. You know one of the one of the things that we tend to zen buddhism in general is that we tend to raise the value of things. So where we say. The supreme way in many ways is like this the the supreme burrito or the the supreme. Whatever you get from from a a restaurant when you when you go to get stuff it doesn't it doesn't make it any different than what it is So when he says the supreme way is not something else. That's this album. The supreme ways the way the cia each one of us is an has an does again on a momentary basis but usually again uh disease as human beings is to Wants something else is better than what we already have. You could say the entire Teaching of the buddha's baselessly around getting to appreciate what we already our human beings and obviously in his first statement there is recorded This is this has been our robot sucession. You know so. That is the the the week. The sat down decided not to move until he's quest was salted out at the end of that he came up with a couple of sentences. Wonder one does i. All beings the great earth The wisdom and virtue of the way and one to thus snus and then walk probably is more important to us as human beings is bought because of our upside down thoughts. We've we failed to see it. You know and again is that in many ways. That's our condition not only are we conditioned by writings where conditioned by the way that were raised also conditioned by schooling to to look for something else something bad and the majority of our practices related to really examine. If those things are true because quite often they just occur on automatic so where he says you know. The supreme way knows no difficulty do you. That's the first they do. You know no difficulty. Can you say that your own life is the supreme way you know or is it. Is it the The the inferior way all the the way that that has very little body. No i'm just asking these things. Could it's important because quite often. We don't even question what we take on. I was looking at this. This whole Preface and in this in this case. And and you know again we quite often use highfalutin language. We don't usually use in daily life where he goes. The universe contracts the sun moon and stars go black. Even a blows of the cane can can show light. Rain shouts like thunder still does not measure up to the business of the transcendent methodology. Ah is that. We do do transcendent methodology old. You live what is that. Methodology is important to look at these things because if it stays in the realm of highfalutin language. It's never going to a see that this is. This is my life on a on a momentary basis. What does it transcend. The methodology is kinda is kinda funny on one level is the zone in itself is designed to bore you to tears until those those ideas notions beliefs. No longer kick in so boring. You see them over and over and over and over and over until is like enough. that's it is reality. let's take it. That's a lot better than than running these promises over and over and over since like listening to recent political speeches. you know. It's just it doesn't need to happen this. The experience of reality informs as owes so much in terms of our own. our own. our own being and that transcendent what are we transcend in again. All of our condition it going above it and then acting in accord with reality. that's the basis of Of zen practice where it goes the universe contracts does it. I've never seen contract. I've never seen expanding. You know the the physicists. Say there is expanded then occasional sale knows contracting but does that affect our reality is actually going on. There are experiences of darkness but these highfalutin languages like ags eminem and see if they're really true and it's not true few at this moment in time. Just leave him in the background. Don't just take the mom as well. Maybe i'll see that later is just just put it on one side and come back and this is the beauty of of joe shoes teaching right here. He's just saying as it is. The supreme way knows no difficulty is simply avoids some translation you pick and choose him here. They say discrimination but if human beings yeah we discriminate. We do all kinds of all kinds of stuff but you know what is this supreme way. That knows no difficulties. What is that a major. One of us has gone through difficulties. you know. i'm pretty sure. I mean just just. We covered this a lot of difficulties. But what so what. He's talking about the supreme way. The way of the human. The way of the transcendental methods of said no snow difficulties. What is that now when you you know when i when i look into into my own my own and is the i go to sleep at night. I don't die. That's an amazing thing. You know thing. I wake up in the morning. And the blood's pumping the aisa blinken. You know the the has grow in the nails grow and the skins that it's you know the is all working is all working fine. I don't have to do about it. Consciousness occurs you know. Come out of out of nowhere to sleep and then seeing is that hearing is tasting is that touching. Is that all of these things without difficulty. This is the aspect is really that. That's really being emphasized. Amd at the same time is the the sun rises over here and goes over that every day the earth shows you know when we really look at. It is nothing this missing. Out of this. Where is the difficulty in it. That's usually in the human realm. I'm not saying there's no. We don't go through challenges but on the basic level all the time. We're being supported by this this universe and that's the great way can't be any greater is not is not greater or lesser is that everything is in this but quite often again is the up with our thought processes again. That the buddha's things book because of our upside down views failed to see it. When i become something when i attain something when people treat me with respect when you know when i'm old when i get a bit more time there's always excuses rod them. Whatever is filling this moment. In time is the practice in itself is the way in itself later on is the set show when he's talking about this case or give us an insight into it is going even to bring in the would. Buddha is light dragging be dragged through the mud folks oil but a means is awakened so what happened was the became awakened. I mean how can you tell he was awaken. You know wanting wasn't asleep and to you you could tell that. He acted in a coat without awakening. Simple as that. There was nothing else that he needed to do. And he valued it so much because of the reduction in suffering in his own life and the insight into that that basic aspect of knows no difficulty that continued. That's why people came to study with him. You know this This this enlightenment really is is the colony of of the of the whole of buddhism. Just just take off a little bit more from From this introduction What are we going. He goes even when you say the woods and it is a total embarrassment. More developed people have studied for a long time. Do not need to wait for it. To be set you know again. People will say. Well zen practices and doing this for me and you know well throw it away. You know i mean what is what is then but it is living in itself. you know. it isn't something you place over the top of it. you know. even you know coming coming from Being raised as a as a christian is the the will didn't change. Because i became a dissed or zen buddhist or a soto zen buddhist the the same mystery that was that in christianity was that will me as a as a buddhist. It doesn't matter what label you put on. The pig is still a pig you know. Is that this practice is living in his self. Is the focus of practice so web. Well i gave up practice. How how did he do that. You'll living the practice. How are you practicing avoidance. Because you can do that. You know yeah i was avoid in really looking into my own nature but here i am you know how. How do you stop doing that. That this the practice in itself really when when it comes down to the prices human being is is seeing value in appreciating of being grateful. For what what we what we will born with our own birthright and. That's why the buddha can set you know i all beings. The earth are the wisdom and virtue of the away wants us nece being awake in that. How do we really do that. Most of the time is then. We'll lost in in in a realm of faulk about about who i am what i do where i'm going who my friends saw. All of these things overlaying this basic great way the here again on a momentary basis once that basis is seen the great way in itself breath and nothing really gets in the way you can think about all kinds of stuff because that's always the basis this matter what's going on in the head the head really cannot work out this world now when you look at it and in that respect is the you know how can you ever work countless world the philosophist since beginning. This time have been trying to do that. You know none of them came up with a definitive answer. Even a plan. They came up with some words. You know we'll get lust in those words but the head kind of encompass all of this we are already the that occur you know and it says this. In buddhism there is the one who sees as their objective seeing and there is the vehicle of seeing and that happens with each of the sentences so everything is included within within the scheme will exponentially again is where where do you draw the lines between yourself and others guinness great and it's funny that that that chinese character grade it isn't as opposed to small. It's just great. It's not like there's something else it's just in the same way you know. He's like people come in and they'll say well. I'm trying to find my true south. You know the thing is. There isn't a there isn't a false south that stat go. Because if you can't find self and bring out you fall self even if you lie in it that is exactly what it is at that point in time but still you know. We don't own up to being that wisdom wisdom virtue of the wakeham long to thus knows somebody was telling me you know i might zoom euros. She would say you can forget about the virtue but then somebody was saying that the roots of that would that you basically means the as business of you know so then you can bring that back in. It doesn't really need to. He's not like you have so much high verge you from doing. All these good works is the asses of stuff. So joe says this statement and is always is always nice. That he'd he doesn't have a bunch of Yes people in with him. You know they ask questions. I mean it's not like yes. I agree with the great leader. These guys know they come along. Well well knows. No difficulties simply dislikes choosing and the guy comes off and he says let me really is hoping that lost. The question supremely has no difficulties. He just rejects discrimination. As soon as that are words spoken. This is discrimination. This is clarity. There's discrimination case goes i do not Remain within clarity. Do you value this without reservation. Do you value this with now. Is he saying Devalued this these words or is he saying do value. They this moment in time without reservation. Now this is this is important value this without reservation. And then you know. Don't just buy into that. Because that's a good thing to do is is that true. Do i value this without reservation. And then a least if your reservations are out on the surface you can see them than just aktin was subroutine underneath. So then somebody that you know has some insight says since you don't remain within clarity. What is that to preserve. So how many is this. Is this a good thing. Been in clarity made. I've heard this over and over with you know with with With zen teaches resent students. Yeah that was. That was really clear. I i was very pleased. You're in the session during this retrieve you know i was very clear but can you do that. And your daddy. Life is clear all the time. My zoom roy she would Would one of his favorite analogies with stay the hazy moon you know trump Lied the bright. Some sunlight of wisdom miocene mira suicide. Nothing can pass to hazy moon of enlightenment. Now what is it. I mean you look at a hazy moon is you see a clear moon you can. You can make it out pretty well but you see hazy moon is go like big corona on it and sometimes it's like huge that corona is always colas in it and yet is indistinct. It's hard to make it out now. Is that more light life than pure clarity. you know. make clarity's nice. I remember going in and give an answer to a call with my sumiyoshi. And he goes way to clear you call win way to clay you know. Sometimes things not clear there indistinct yet. The other day thought a sore mountain lion but could have been a bob cat. I mean it's nice to be clear but it is what it is and then i did see mount line a monday. She's nice so he goes. I don't know that either is it. Clear is unclear. Is it necessary to really draw those lines. A b in a state human beings you know we vary sometimes we. We may be relaxing. Like you know. Like i was saying now. The training periods coming to an end and that bringing concentration too most activities is being burnt-out. Now go in and join that those periods of relaxation. Then if something happens you may be lost in full boom minds right back into clarity. Should the mind stay fixated in clarity and even using the woods fixed of excited on clarity. It's not like it should be that way either. We do what we do. Each one of us in a way that feels right to was so that we can illumine the human condition. That's the bullet. it's not that he transcended the human condition. Is he learned how to how to live. Now if you look at athletes nowadays you know is the they can be very. They can be very clear. The energy can be made very clear. They got focused. But then they're also encouraged then to relax the mind so that it is not breathless. Not tied again. You know this is in terms of method this is. This is what joe shoes putting forward. Don't stick to these things. See how the mind works and then allow concentration to conform to whatever it is that you're doing now it's like a light nowadays. I really don't like concentrate concentrate. It's not not that. I don't do it. It's just. I rather have the mind relaxed and then when i need to concentrate and concentration comes in and then as soon as that's done to relax so i'm not holding onto a concentration but the concentration of being is in itself the basis of that then it comes in and then lots then ways of concentration can be can come in of their own accord just in the same way as if i'm dealing with with little kids and my concentration is along those lines you know and is more the energies up a lot more. If if i'm dealing with people Maybe maybe sick than the energies a lot. More concentrated and focused on on how that those people are. If i'm working on a a a problem of of how to to handle something then the the energies opened a hat am working on scenarios and working on how the inexperience comes in in that way. That's another kind of concentration. Math is very clear comes in those. Those things goes so the concentration is different in many different ways but as the basis of this is just the being south. The great way knows no difficulty. That's the very container. The contains sadness happiness joy. Anger sadness everything. The single everything that is in the human condition can come and go as needed as necessary empathy. All of these things are that. So this oman. Distant dwelling clarity. Yeah when we talk about things that are indistinct and in kladno that they're not. They're not clear maybe they'll they'll be a gathering of information from people around. They are part of that. Great container to and then maybe something can come up where action can be made in the midst of that so again What i'm trying to say is have the mind of on. Which is this true what he's saying just because he's zen master from You know twelve hundred years ago who was highly regarded by others. Masters see for yourself and see. If that's true don't let your innate wisdom sh- get suppressed simply by the brilliance of that event rhodesian on their action. This is really important to do. You know issue each of us has this this slight or this This wisdom and it's important to exercise it. That's how we become better dealing with our environment and the people that are there in it. So i like this song. Because he's like. I can is like a terrier you know you just like grab the ball and he won't let go no matter how much you tug on it you know. It's just he wants to win. This wants to win which is actually good mentality in this way. He no okay. I don't know that either. So you know. That's that's josiah. I don't know we'll see we'll see when this occurs is not that i draw lines in concentration. Either you know it's like concentration is consciousness in itself. It can be brought up a pitch or it can be taken down but always it is consciousness in new south. Either relaxation can be conscious. Shenice dislike Contemporary teacher kyodo rosie used to be docu when he lived in israel and then he went to new york and then he went back and ran. What zoo reattach a temperament mission mine in japan but one of these students when he was in new york cast him. I'm having trouble concentrating. And so Qudos she said well jeff tool concentration concentrating when you watch tv or read the newspaper and he said no goes. Okay meditate light that you you can laugh but this is really good. skillful means. I don't have any problem when i'm watching. Tv just a minute with whatever's going on or read in as yet absorbed in it that says n accepts ause ended when nothing is going on which is important. Because that's the very container for tv for all of these things for working the the playing old you know so it's slight us what you have. It's like when a when i became administrators e. cla i asked my zoom euro. She had been in administrator. How should i do. He said okay. Do it like a cop injury. He like you build a house case we need foundations so foundations. Get the people the right people in the right place. You know bill build the wolves get an ethical standard this going on and a work and a work ethic and and so whatever your skill is you can apply it to to whatever's there it doesn't have to be something the outside your experience and each person that's called as added their own thing to to the work the work that's going on on a daily basis. Some areas go up some areas. Go down the. The main thing is make the attempt do that. Be that in time is that it becomes traceless in the fact is you can't follow these all standards and it's not the standards were good. They're excellent but the problem is is you have to enter that traceless with one's own consciousness on a momentary basis. You can't put it into a box mino- so anyway. The the monk carries on then again. He's like the terrier. Since you don't know why do you say you're not in clarity's a damn good question since you don't know i've come. You say you don't dwelling clarity. That's really good because again he's the you put in a label on it. He's saying that joe shoo. Who is this. Time is probably think he started when he was about seventeen or eighteen maybe even younger at his first realization and taught until he was one hundred and twenty from from eighty two hundred and twenty four years of teaching that you know and he gets somebody is a little got a whip that that just won't go on. He's great that this this guy doesn't but then joe shoes so much about him that you know when a lucy really doesn't matter you know he. He is who he is thoroughly. The great way is who. He is thoroughly sue. Win or lose really. Doesn't matter is a win win situation. Hope all the way through he goes. You've you've post. Your question is great. Now you can leave. And the thing is he could be upset. You know he sounds like he's groups that you've asked a question the no it's just like you know i'm i'm done i don't wanna i don't enter into this woods. Too much of an in an in reality woods ought to much. You know we say well. Why did you bring in these analogies. Why you do that. Because the entertain us entertain us. What a way then to entertain that part knows who it is who we are and it brings that one to the surface if we don't question it and we and we don't take it or we take it for granted than it never really never rated raises up. We never really appreciate at aspect you know. It's just like with even even warm would it. Can changes can change the way that we view life and reduce. Oh friend you know and is saying that we're at the you know the this for us is is ro hat soon in a few in a couple of weeks it'll be real hot soon as the buddha's enlightenment book but why you know we've two thousand five hundred years has been this this practice. Why am again. The main thing is is reduce the level of suffering some people. They've gone right to the bottom than many people is. Just stop some of those those behaviors that causes suffering and everywhere in between along. So you know. He's like the whole of the buddhist teaching is intact for today is not the it is sort of degenerates in gun. A gun down as always available for his twenty four seven so we have the opportunity to actually practice that and again. Don't get confused that we all the great way so live it thus the important part doesn't necessarily have to be on the realm of Cognitive thought it can be just in doing and being and just submerging into whatever it is that we do so this point. I'd like to just open it up. And we can go on from there casey. You can anew yourselves you can use the raise hand and i'll open up chat as well. Leinna go ahead joke. I in about five minutes. you'll takeover. Yeah i'm going to pass over joke too because Ces is his training period. Good morning rushie. Immonen leinna thank you so much for your talk. I just wanted to see to perfect time to this time in our experience as I mean i'm not trying to repeat what you said You know so much time can't but so much of this time present so many of us with what we think our difficulties but for me. It's not acceptance and sundays segment added than others. And i just wanted to acknowledge your choice of. Yeah thank you. I never know what i'm going to talk about. So thank you jane. I honor so you mentioned highs lou language and on some i feel like or all the time show like cohen on contain language yet inaccessible on i hear it you know is to stop thinking mine but when you bring them down on it makes them accessible to me and i was just bring like why you could. You can do that too. You can do that too as well you know. It just takes a bit of time. Had why not be so moved. Intimidator arranged marriage will come it light in a light. What does this mean. What does it really mean. And then if some of the woods even if he if you're not sure what what that may look them up in the dictionary and then you know and then just internalize them. What's going on here. And then you will find a way through those things and it may take some time though. That's it means something to be. Dozen are the Other masters you know that the monks asked questions to are. They sometimes trying to be cryptic. Well you know. The concerned about us as human beings and abou- not really appreciate what is our birthright so most most of that collins are around this now they put them in different words scenario simply because then it doesn't become a cliche and we've got to use that inquiry. You know what is this. What's going on just like if we enter into a situation that we've not been in before we tend to be very aware you know we may not like it but we tend to be more aware that full We learned to carry like deeper a broader energies. Thank you thanks. Jane joke is going to take over now so please please ask him about something. Somebody's just getting is just something else to hold me. I everyone else right. We have a hand up. Okay appear you to yourself a load of that morning kind of morning or afternoon. now yeah. Sorry sorry allergies the the concept of god and the soul which is different. Is it different from zen buddhism. I mean it it it. It seems it's so disturbing the the fact that there's guard why Why ebbing on your cell phone. So panelists Yeah well i'll take it as a ticket as a question thinking In the practice because we tend not to cherish any kind of fixed view ought to try and distill things into into until a one explanation or one way i had. I talked to somebody a few years ago. Who had Who lost lost to parents and they said that they were hoping of. They really wish they could see them in heaven one day and they felt a little bit guilty about it as zen student. The having thought and and and that person asked me to. Do you think that's crazy. And i said to myself i said no. I hope you you see them to you. Know it's it's more. It's much more in the realm of of don't know rather than projecting of a firm belief that may not may or may not match reality much better to be sure immersed in in this present experience because if we can align with this then we can align with that whatever that is so questions of god and unsold difficult to fix all our answer in any specific way. It's it's more important for each person to penetrate that question for themselves to the being satisfied waiting to see if god struck me down. Dad say not. But i'm still so where. Okay thank you you the near any funder thanks yeah liam liam can unlike didn't give my name being pulled out there. I joke yeah gets to see a live from island. Prostate share. Dark dr has has you know. Doc is a pint of guinness. Yeah guess dry november. Anyway i could have the entice consecutive roche. The attention was talking about cutting out until sonata gives Besides drink finance pass. No cutout drink is always good at unwanted noticed. State the question of clarity and suffering to me me. It seems likely five. If i can find clarity. I'm very close to watch in in zim Snus president of the fatal connected to the the being this and then the the unclarity day confusion is to do it suffering of. It's very easy. I find i get lost in confusion. Always looking for the clarity. A practicing to be in that cone is to nearly surrender excepts. Don't you know don't go. Don't go looking for the time because you already have sh- be rich. It's sad to say. I mean as the certainly a Something of a linear process to practice as well. And you know this is A mutual conversation. That's going on between the two protagonists in in the call on this well in order to discuss clarity or this clarity on the don't know i think the most offers we again from a place of confusion or dissatisfaction and use the the method the time honored method in all to promote uncreative concentration and clarity in order to better That's a look at what is really going on the free process. Then it's not a place that we don't stay in Escape the everyday life in order to stay in the place clarity but through the realization clarity then not opens up to including Confusion this clarity. And every other thing that arises. But there's a close Alignment with life being just as it is and more and a trust in that the comes from having explode the territory formerly that way you can Be in. I'll be in confusion but before you before you before you explore thoroughly than confusion may may be may feel like a trap and free practice. Sometimes clarity can be trapped too. So you know there's something it's it's it's the irony of beginning on home plate and ending on home plate but everybody has to run the bases themselves take. It is kind of irony. Confusion confusion in the irony of stop looking status. Dogs don't don't project dunks you know indoor as i don't live in time and space if the present moment but we are conditioned to live in time space. We have this. You know has suffering that. We've been haddish's were were on your journey of towards you know suffering and you know it's it's a. It's a finite journey subsidized saddam looms in our consciousness. As well and it's it's hard to let go of the you know data case today to you know crooks which is to just forget about the journey to don't be on a journey just be air program. Yeah yeah but again. It's in many ways. Many wonderful teachings collins teaches both both living and dead who very khun very clearly point out and say to trust the ground on defeats to to really look at this place and that's all it needs to be done but in order to really realize that we do training periods and rowlatt sucessions gives. It's it's It's hard to swallow those words. Those words of that to guide and reassure and provoke in auditor Relentlessly turn it back on this one that we are to to really to examine this ground. You know so. It's hard to just to hear that. And then make that leap. Okay now. i'm going to take that on and say myself twenty grinding effort. You know. I mean all power to anyone who does not. That's great but for most of us. It's it's Daily showing up to practice and practicing with water is difficult over time. You know like Analogy if you hear sometimes zana going out in the rain you know you can go out in the rain and experience a quick fund the storm and it's lashing down and you get out to the skin and happens in a couple of minutes and that might happen then often it's like going out for a walk in a in a light so can rain which you barely notice and you go for a long walk and you come back soaked. Yes and it's not like it's not like an and the may be so this this some of both belan find all right all across a mind that she was a could sit on a bar. Stool can find guinness field. Claris not gone away ads. I can. I can force shorten ways. If she don't mean by the right prints at the by by realty been relaxed really obeying leitner not taking it serious right in some ways that it's it's kind of it's it's a it's a lightness. Whereas the relentless practice seems to be a kind of a grind he can be beneath to these things in our sapper affixed in in that way. You know so it's not. It's not a choice between hop practice. All leaping old some some clarity much better to to enjoy it all no matter how it appears if that's you know while we're live and it's important to enjoy and appreciate it to wever. It's clear or not you know we don't have to have such a perhaps a big investments in it looking certain way whatever it to cherish clarity over confusion and you're right you can sit on. The boss still have one guinness and the feel like a lot of clarity but may stop at wall much more difficult to have a lot of clarity of you sitting there too long. Yeah enjoy enjoyment is definitely Like a big pie all clarity. You know to to enjoy to appreciation of gratitude. All those things are saved emanate from of connection and clouds. It's important you feel out to too shabby to thank you. Good to see didn't have a question. Looks like it's been answered but just the translation of the blue cliff record. And if you hold up. The book of secrets of the blue cliff by thomas cleary. I remember this coming out. Had lifted yoko g for a few years secrets of the blue cliff. Game out and as excited. Because i was just about to start working on the blue cliff and thought there'd be lots of hacks in that would get me through it quicker than i realized it was. Just you know kind of title. So terry continue tiny afternoon since he can. After noon really liked the example the row she talked about the And I was just thinking that in the obviously yours times i m really about something really confused about something but see soon as i develops clarity over through practice that your study from on i am not getting to attach to because some sometimes it seems better unclear about charity. Men just do what is natural little zest again. Conservative roots here just to do what was shoeless each dried. Yeah yeah i. I think you bring up a point. Is that sense of Appropriate response when you when you live in a way that is basically presence and responsive to the environment and the people in things that make up the environment the naturally you see what the function of this moment is. What needs to be taken care of what you need to do that. That's a clarity in a sense. But it's not necessarily. It's not doesn't need to be in intellectual clarity right. Okay yes i understand that. It's say oh well you know. I took you point. Yeah minutes more more sensitive of relaxed on not having to full. Servings we're comfortable. Yeah thank you. Thank you good to see.

I what what is what is be appropriate concentration for a in this case you and i talking to each over over over su. I'm concentrating on on your on your question listening. I'm watching you. You know 'cause you take cues so to face and try listen and then and then respond and concentration there and we have other people who are who i think. Listen it and there's a level of concentration there and to this particular this fall matt and this experience of reality and it matches it matches directly and does he needs to be considered up right so the row midnight mid rallies. Not the right word to use your. You know inappropriate conduct inappropriate. Fullness concentration a destructive desire. Remember one time account was called the the a brief period of beginnings nine improving is not in session and the teacher was at the time of grease name would have been Eighteen it was fairly daily food.

Yeah yeah for many of those off. Human beings is slightly trust to calibrates that we have between our ears.

I say In that said if a style thinking about ginday ryan getting wrong than almost always get it wrong. But if i let it come round downs go back and forth gets to go up and finally go beyond it again. You know combined to look at the congress occasionally Huge children so quiet. So while while i can say that yeah okay here in this open fight not concentrate to hide a nice relaxation matching calibration But what if you just wrong into this place if only midway.

I'm promoting peace and freedom and how life the that goes way beyond Right or wrong is a bit of a cover of low just just including just banned these like yeah right yeah exactly crying destructive believe this election scientific know that still able you know like those be laughing elusive very evil any like how'd you figure out that what you believe is in a way wrong or evil you just whistling demonstrate the planning over what people happened so Happiness is the answer in contentious cases. You needs to be critical. Show you yeah. That's really changed the way deadly not considered Just while the balance between between waged will again you know it's not an Arrival at one place you have to match while what resonates for. You can't live that way so it's way with teachings two things that come in and you feel helpful. Apply a knows. Things not helpful. Don't useful this. you know. we're not not trying to sell you a vacuum cleaner. Now you brought up the elections so now you can leave. Thanks ed thank you. He wouldn't take one more. It's just come on one more. I'd stewart i'm are okay. Let's off yes joke. I think everybody. So yeah my question is just this. I am thinking about this term boaty saba and i'm wondering if this idea of being good versus being ability sought the is somehow connected to this case in the concept of maybe there being a closer relationship to the path to having a path. It is not difficult if you are someone who is on the path as kind of ability. Softbank someone who is on the path someone who is seeking like monroe the verge of awakening or you know rather than being one better other than being a gouda. And i don't. I just don't know climbing. It's my thoughts are taking me somewhere. That's irrelevant or not. Well if it's if it's relevant you to explore that and then we should explore off myself. I don't really draw drawer aligned. Tween a buddha rana bodey safa think buddhism bodey sarah's and bodey safas abode his might just put a different emphasis on those who are On the way in the scheme of practice you know but even buddha's it's not. It's not a matter of the arrival at the the golden enlightened place and then you finally graduated from your body sat hud and now you can you know you can enjoy. Enjoy life the rava. Y-y-you everyone here you here in this room on zoom different countries and different places. Every body is is a practice in Bodey safa and everybody here is a is a buddha thirty we practice because there is a Depths about realization that i realized buddha's on on nara unreal high sparta's one of the things that are really like about attention. Rochus teachings is that. He seems to emphasize lofty idea of living. And for me that is something that really resonates with me particularly. Because i don't see the concept of what i've learned is called a stone buddha as being something that's desirable to me our even something that's relevant to the kind of asset. I'd like to lead us when i was trying to make sense of this Cohen here hearing it and reading the long. That was the kind of idea that came to mind. Is maybe if this great master show shoe. Could you know not reside in clarity. Maybe that's a way of not being still a and again. That's just kind of thought that reminded kind of interpretation that i want to check in with you know. It's not about becoming the enlightened walton and sticking staying in any in any place whatsoever. Joe jr massa joshi in this case is a clearly exhausted those physicians and going well beyond those kinds of views and is ravages somebody completely themself themselves and is a confidence in their own self confidence in october to lose in the sense. If you take the call on in that way where he says you questions while paul you know while done that you can go. You know into not doesn't even matter at that point about being so-called bested ravaged if you really are home in one south then again. It's not a matter of getting to a place of clarity or replace a concentration all or anywhere all but rather the assurance trust from Knowing who you are and living living your life very thank you very much.

137 - The Beauty Of Nothing

"Hello, and welcome to another episode of the secular Buddhism podcast. This is episode number one, hundred and thirty seven. I am your host Noah Rochetta and today I'm going to talk about the beauty of nothing. As always keep in mind you don't need to use what you learn from. Buddhism to be a Buddhist, you can use what you learn to be a better whatever you already are. If. You're new to the podcast checkout episodes one through five or visit secular Buddhism dot Com and click on start here, which will give you access to those episodes one through five where they're easy to find. If you're looking for an online community, the practice with and interact with consider becoming a supporter of the podcast by visiting secular Buddhism Dot Com and clicking on the top link that says, join our online community on patron. In the last podcast episode I shared a Cohen. That's goes like this own Mahn said, I do not ask you about fifteen days ago. But what about fifteen days hence come say a word about this since none of the monks answered he answered for them every day is a good day. The everyday is a good day co on is a Cohen that I've enjoyed. In fact I have it written in Japanese on a poster board on my wall every day is a good day and this has been A. a way of thinking concept. If we want to call it that that I like to keep the forefront of my mind when I'm experiencing what I would consider to be a good day. Maybe a bad day for someone else or would consider to be a bad day for me. Certainly a good day for someone else and the idea that every day is a good day because it's always based on perspective and place some time has been helpful for me to I think have a more skillful view of what good means and and the idea of what a day is. So I wanted to share some of the thoughts that came from the Patriot community do Shan says I can't escape thinking that hope is at the center of this Cohen as well as the irrelevance of the past and the future. However, I don't commonly see hope as a big part of Buddhism in general hope seems judgmental and perhaps leads to dissatisfaction about the way things are. I want to share a couple thoughts about this in in terms of the notion of hope in in Buddhism I like to remind people that the Buddhist view is always pertaining to the present moment. So when we approach concepts like hope like hopelessness specifically. It's always pertaining to the present moment. So the idea isn't that I shouldn't have hope for things in the future. The idea is that if I can experience homelessness in the present moment, what I'm experiencing is a moment of not needing things to be any different than how they are, which if you think about it that when we talk about the the definition of suffering the moment, we want things to be other than how they are. We experienced suffering now there's nothing wrong with hat. It's okay to experience suffering. It's unavoidable impact. We're going to experience this feeling times the moment we want things to be other than how they are. So what we can do in the present moment if I realized that for this one single moment, I don't need anything to be other than how it is. I'm experiencing seen hopelessness but I know hopelessness has a bad rap a bad connotation in our way of thinking in our society and it's a little strange to tell someone that the you're aspiring for hopelessness but remember it's not in the future you see this even in Buddhist. Thought like the in the Meta prayer where you say may you be happy? May you be free? May You? May you be free from suffering? May you be a piece that expression is a implies? A wish that I have for you in the future. But as far as a practice goes what I'm doing when I'm trying to experience hopelessness it's right now in this present moment, it's it's the radical acceptance of how things are all elaborate on that just a little bit more but I I wanNA share a roberts thoughts. He says, thanks for the episode. The Cohen makes me think of two things one, there's no such thing as A. Bad Day, because even if you're having a bad day billions of others might be having a good one and two time is a concept. It's existence relies on humans believing in it there are no good or bad days because beyond our perception, there are no days. Now I liked it he brings awareness to this idea of time if I say every day is a day Yeah. The the. The idea of a day is something that is a concept right? We we distinguish what a day is based on the rotation of the Sun. We've decided that's it, but you know, where do you draw that line? What if it was twenty five hours in the day and on the twenty fifth hour? There's this great thing that happened How do you define what makes it a day? Good. And what makes a day bad is at ten good things and too bad things as it twelve good bad things and one good thing you know what would make it good or bad and then you have to break down from there will then is it what? What is it by our What what would make every hour is a good hour or every minute is a good minute. Every second is a good second right where do we draw that line because again, the emphasis from the Buddhist perspective is always pertaining to the present moment and any moment can be a good moment if I just bring awareness to it and mindfulness to the moment because if you'll recall the the very definition of mindfulness as the non-judgmental observation of the present moment. So I'm observing the. Present. Moment with non judgment, it's not good or bad. It's just the moment that is and in doing. So yea, could say every moment is a good moment but that's the Co on right because who says, what's good? Who say what's good and what's bad which brings me to heathers thoughts who says this Cohen about good days and bad days brought a few interesting things to my thoughts today. I it made me think of the parable about the two neighbors who whenever something happened to his neighbor such as the horse running away or his son being a pardoned from joining the army because of breaking his leg. The neighbor simply replied who knows what is good and what is bad it is through this story that we realized that not everything is as it seems at first. So it's not wise to label things as good or bad. Also, we should take into consideration of what is good for one person may be bad for another. Finally, most of what I've been learning about Buddhism and she says I'm fairly new to the practice emphasizes being present in the moment, not dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. So perhaps, this question isn't really a question question at all. It's a reminder that we should be here in the present moment fully awakened and I kinda wanted to share my thoughts on. Building on Heather's spots here the concept of the present moment because yes the from the Buddhist perspective again, it's always anchored in the present moment. So if that's the case and I'm anchored in the present moment a a concept like every day is a good day again, I'd have to go to what about this moment and if this moment is good or bad will what about the next moment in that moment is good or bad? Well, what about the next moment and because we can't pause time We're stuck with this with this constant observation that the meaning I'm giving to a moment is just that it's the meaning I'm giving to it, and the moment I've done that it's gone and I'm on to the next moment and onto the next moment. So when I start to see it in light of Trying to be in the present moment Suddenly all of these other concepts that you'll encounter in Buddhism, make more sense Again, going back to the concept of hopelessness will share if I'm hopeless to this moment what about the next moment will that one I'm hopeful well, then what about the next one? Oh, maybe that one I'm hopeless. Like a what if you're switching back and forth literally moments a moment in half a second increments or something. So because there's no fixed time, everything's always changing notions like this start to make more sense in terms of the present moment. So those are just some of the thoughts I wanted to share regarding the every day is a good day Cohen and I want to tie this into the topic that I wanted to share today the beauty of nothing Now, this is just kind of a stream of thoughts that I wanted to share with you. The concept of nothingness in Buddhism is that I would have to entertain the question is nothing something because if you have an answer to that question and you tell me what nothing is will then now nothing is something right the idea that you have about what nothing is that is something it's a concept and it's an idea. So the idea of nothingness from the Buddhist perspective is quite fascinating because it puts you in this world of non duality again, which is is nothing something and I would argue that it is. So then there's no such thing as nothingness nothing assists something ness and that's pretty interesting to think about. So one thing I wanted to share where this starts to apply a little bit more in our day to day experience is the practice of trying to do nothing I, just got off the phone not long ago with a podcast listener who who who's a patron and was asking wanted to discuss this concept of nothingness. And we had a really fun conversation around this and talked about some of the ways that this concept of nothingness can be beneficial in day to day life I wanted to share some of those thoughts with you in the I was you know the question will how do even practice nothingness because if I'm thinking I'm trying to make time for nothing and there was a podcast episode about this making time for nothing that's why I wanted to bring this up. But if I go into the practice of wanting to do nothing I'm going to struggle if I really think that nothing is devoid of something. So what that means to be If. I. Sit here and I think, okay I'm going to do nothing what am I actually doing I'm doing something I'm thinking of doing nothing, which is something it's a lot like the the catch twenty, two that you're in. If you think, well, what is the sound of silence will listen to silence and you're going to hear something whether it's the ringing in your ears or the faraway sounds of of cars honking like. The idea that there there's always some kind of sound taking place. Even if you just say, okay, we'll the what is the sound or the frequency of the sound of the radiation that comes from the sun and just shoots right through the earth like we're experiencing that at any given moment and there's a sound associated to that whether I can perceive it or not doesn't matter. But the idea is that there is no such thing as silence at least for us here in this world, there's always some form of sound penetrating the earth from the sun or something. and. I think this concept with nothing is the same. So. To want to experience. This is to experience something nece. I'm going to experience something by by trying to do nothing. And this could be as simple as Oh communists it here and do nothing, and then I get distracted watching a little amt on the ground and I follow along and watch and realized that in this moment of nothingness, there's a whole lot of something nece taking place where I can hear the rustling of the leaves on the trees outside the window, and in my moment of doing nothing I observed that there's a whole lot of somethin' and that to me is where this becomes powerful in my external observation of nothingness would I observe a lot of something nece but now take this a step further and go inward in my. I intent to observe nothingness taking place in me what I will observe as a whole lot of something this I may be able to observe my heartbeat or the rumbling sounds in my stomach or the sound of breathing or. The observation of thoughts don't stop the thoughts are always going always racing even if I have the thought that I'm not having thoughts that's a thought I had the thought of not having thoughts and that is the dilemma with the concept of nothingness, which is what makes the idea of nothingness. So beautiful is that nothing is actually something quite a bit of something. So I was having all these thoughts with the notion of nothing and then I thought you know I would like to correlate this with a bigger topic in Buddhism, which is the concept of no self or non-self. and. I think if I if I can conclude that nothingness something and I take that line of thought of quiet something like the sense of self. Now, I'm actually onto something pretty fascinating, which is the idea of non-self. Self is nothing right from the Buddhist way of thought, which means that self is something if anything it's a concept that's an idea and it's always changing and always evolving. In one way that I like to think of this is the way that I perceive a rainbow you know the the other day my daughter who's four was looking we saw a rainbow. And she said, can can we go to it and I had to explain to her well, the rainbow something that we see, but it's not actually there. You don't get to go touch it. The closer you get to disappears because you only see a rainbow. Not because they're but it's based on how we see and now of course to a four year old this this whole notion is like. Okay I don't that was too much, right? But it got me thinking. When I perceive a rainbow, the causes and conditions arise, and suddenly I perceive the Rainbow I don't think it's much different when I proceed the sense of self the causes and conditions arise, which is that I exist I'm born my brain processes, thoughts, experiences, feelings, and emotions in this whole combination of experienced that I'm having gives rise to this and sation of a sense of self very similar to the sensation of Oh. There's a rainbow something that I can perceive. Now the I go chasing after it and I'll never find it. And I think that's the same dilemma that we're in with a sense of self which is what the Buddhist view of non-south is trying to get. It's not that there is no self it's that the perception that we have of self is off from what we think that it is and other words words the sense of self my myself is not what I might think that it is it's not a permanent thing and it's not an independent thing. It's an interdependent transitory thing that's always changing the sense of self. And this to me is fascinating way to look at it. I might think there are aspects of me that seem fixed like my personality for example, but it's not that fixed Many people will encounter some kind of big experience that can change their personality just yesterday I was hearing about someone who was saying that a really good friend who had a certain personality and way about him and he went to Rehab because he was dealing with a strong addiction to drinking and smoking and and went through this whole program and came. Out of that and was an a different person, his personality had changed. Now, some of us may not go through something that changes are personality. A crisis can do it. people who endure some kind of trauma may have a different personality. Most of us will kind of have the same personality that we've always had, and it will seem like well that what about that? That's kind of a permanent thing but it's not because what was your personality before the day you were born right? For Day, before you were conceived or the day after you die like there's no permanence in there in the same way that that Cohen Evokes when he says what was your face before you were born so but what what I'm trying to get at it? Yes. With this line of thought as that even things that may seem fixed and permanent they aren't fixed or permanent when it comes to this concept sense of self and as long as they can cause and conditions are there to see the rainbow you're going to see the rainbow. So there's no need to. Deny. What I'm perceiving I can say, well, yeah, I see that rainbow I totally see it but I know that it's not what I would think that it is and that to me is where the value comes in this as I think about the sense of self I have a strong perception of a sense of self but that doesn't mean that it that it's what I might think it could be I. I. Start to see through that illusion recognize it's what I'm seeing that matters not what's actually there that matters it's because of how I see that I perceive what I'm perceiving. So You know one another way I wanted to share some thoughts about this idea of hopelessness or really any concept in Buddhism is if we apply it to the present moment and along the lines of skillful versus unskillful. Then we have something actually Fischel and useful to work within our day to day life and the analogy that I had that popped into. My mind was if I am out on the ocean in a boat and suddenly I realize I'm caught up in a storm in a hurricane. a sense of hopelessness. One would say, oh, that means okay. I'm not GONNA do anything because I guess I'm just going to die out here. Well, that's pretty grim but the Buddhist view of hopelessness would be okay I'm recognizing Emma here in a storm and there is nothing I can do about it cannot wish this storm away I cannot pray it away like I am I'm caught up in the storm. There's no denying that that's where acceptance kicks in. Okay. If I'm caught in a storm What can I do the moment I accept that I am caught in the storm I can start to be more skilful. Okay. Well, they better bring the sales down or a better call an SOS on the radio or a better anchor myself or strap myself to the railings of the boats wave doesn't knocked me over or you know their whole bunch of things that you can do but those things are only going to happen once I recognize. This is indeed the situation that I'm in. So the idea of hopelessness and Buddhism is more along those lines and someone in the Patriot community said she likes the expression wishlist ness which which I agree I like that. It's a moment where I'm experiencing wishlist nece. I don't need it. I don't need to spend time wishing that it was any other than how it is going to just say this is how it is in the present moment and if I'm caught in a storm in a boat in the ocean, then I'm going to do the things that I know are skillful to do in that moment rather than sit there wishing I wasn't in the storm because. No amount of wishing is going to make that storm go away. So that's kind of a along the lines of of what I wanted to share in terms of this concept of of the beauty of nothing to me the beauty of nothing is the recognition that the beauty of nothing is, in fact, the beauty of something there's always something and Yeah. So those were some of the thoughts that I wanted to share. This podcast episode was inspired by a recent phone call conversation like had mentioned before and it I wanted to just share much of those thoughts So I hope you enjoy this podcast episode I want to close it with another Cohen that you can think about during between now and the next podcast episode, and this is one of those Big Cohen's I would say perhaps of all the Cohen's this one is the most famous at least in Zen circles and this is the co on called Joe Shoes Mu. So Joe Shoe was a famous Chinese zen master who lived in Josue, the province from which he took his name one day a troubled monk approached him intending to ask the master for guidance a dog walked by monk asked Joe Shoe has that dog a Buddha or not? The monk had barely completed his question when Jochen shouted moon that's the Cohen I will explain more about it and share some of my thoughts about it in the next podcast episode. Thanks again for listening and until next time.

Golly all and Hussier harmonious her Shia so abors and I are going to walk you through all that but I. We had a little chat about Christmas in China. So do you have any Christmas plans I'm actually going to Honcho to visit my friend because I got one day off on Christmas holder. You get a day off for Christmas. Yup that's unusual right. Chinese companies usually don't have any time offer Christmas right. Yup Thank you right you worked for night. So why does Nike give the company. I know it's an American company but yeah I think there's just I too many expats in the company. Yeah and I thought it would come to be unfair to let all the foreigners have a day off a bit us being in hair working yet that would not be a good luck Like okay four hundred so you can go chill all you. Chinese people stay here. Justice doesn't love you. Yes a lot of foreign. Employees are like a management roles. Well all the Chinese or most of the Chinese workers are like in Doing some some basic works so without them being there for Christmas. There's literally ladle can be down right. So what are you going to do in Hong Joe Shoes have dinner a drink drink and come up with Shanghai because next day I have to work. Yeah it's on a Wednesday rate Yet mistake let sounds Nice. I'm flying out on Sunday to go back to the states. We'll Song Ha. You remembered from our first episode will swallow means I'm sour or meaning in the you. Yeah and just today eh one of our fans and my personal friend and a great translator living in Heiko Nicky sent me a link to some of the most hot Chinese slang words from Twenty nineteen eighteen and was swan. La is on there. So thank you for bringing the heat. Now welcome yeah all right so as we mentioned it's unusual for Chinese people people to have time off for Christmas yet because not a Chinese holiday but like there's Christmas decorations up everywhere around Christmas time. Yeah especially in Shanghai like they got all the Christmas market at an office workshops at teaching you how to make Christmas candles which I believe is nothing special. I've never yeah. It's initials of a Christmas tree. Candles in the shape of a Christmas tree. Yeah this seems like one of the least efficient candle shapes imaginable. Yeah whatever floats your boat a so aside from just wild decorations. Are there any other traditions associated with Christmas in China. Well Chinese people really like giving each other Apple Apple Darren Christmas apples yep apples I know. Apple's yes is it. Looks like a big fat Santa Claus no because Christmas Eve in China is translated as Ping Ping on means safe at a year means night. Yes Oh peeing on yeah is like Silent Knight Save Tonight That's crazy so we call it Christmas Eve and they literally call it peeing on Saturday night and hall is pinnacle so we got the same sound so pink apple sounds like Ping on year has the Ping in there So it's the silent Knight Fruit. Yep should I be buying buying apples for all my friends or is this something I can safely ignore. You can just ignore them okay. Yeah do you do apple prices go up. I'm assuming around Christmas. Yeah they go up like Three times I think those shopkeepers put those apples in the like those little ravens and so for thirty rb an apple so all you Americans and foreigners out there if you feel like Christmas is over commercialized in your country you know. Just relax because even in a country where Christmas means nothing that still being crassly commercialized by apple vendors I don't know if that makes me feel better or worse. Well in the West are at least in the USA. One of the most time honored Christmas traditions of all is going home and arguing with your family about politics wchs so today we're GonNa give you a little bit of a conversation about talking about going home and meeting your family but hey like. Is there something that Chinese families argue about when they meet up for holidays When Chinese people are ours celebrating Spring Festival together they? They're like my folks already always asking me. Did you get a boyfriend. Yep That marriage pressure I get that to you. But I'm I'm assuming not nearly as strong as Chinese people do uh-huh How do you deal with that I'm not going to go home this year. Yeah Best Block no be there is yes so so now that we know that is not going back. Let's read this conversation about going back. Christmas kick us off. It shown Dungy wait warmer quay.

You're inviting someone to eat with you. Yeah I often hear it use in this way. My feeling is that pay pay means that you are like someone else's doing something and I am going to do it with them like being there for their support rally there the primary person uh-huh I am because they are going I will accompany them Go is that the way you feel like you're like having dinner together because you're equally enjoying enjoy each other's company so it's like equally enjoy this thing. Oh but if you're like a pay what. She accomplished me to a hospital room. Maybe I'm the one that needed to all the examinations and you are purely there because WanNa sport me right.

Trouble trouble or something bothersome or something annoying something you don't want to deal with So this construction attraction Fan Boffon. It's two fans with a boo in the middle. And this is the construction. We used to ask if something is fan or or not you could also say like how hall okay. Is it good or not good hall good Pool Hall not good so Hobble Hall means I'm asking you whether or not it's good yet find Bovin. I'm asking you if it's fun. So how can we use fun. In other cases I think you can often hear this word. You'd pop like Mafia tonight. Probably you for a light okay. Oh that's interesting. Because you're right a muffin. Mathon is sort of a famous word among foreigners. Yeah it's really hard to translate directly into English but it's used to describe something that's just really troublesome. I still want to deal with A. I'm just not going to do it. It's too muffin. But here you're actually using it as a polite way to ask for something. Like mafia knee tickle who So mafia UNE- trouble. You bother you see a means to borrow borrows Zia. Did Yeah borrow good hole. Aw a fire borrow a fire. Hose is short for dougherty lighter A lighter yeah so oh could I trouble you for a light.

Yeah throwback have you realized that you are annoying So me fumble fan or your phone booth on me. Yeah put the knee before or after that is pretty funny so matheny did a whole fumble. Felony Ah Okay I guess I guess I'll ask somebody else then So yeah be careful with that one. Because that can be can be quite aggressive finey all right so page out in fumble fan means is spending time with your family annoying or is it chill and I replied Boo Bouffe on not annoying Hud. When one so win-win in your textbook is going to mean warm rain but we're not talking about physical warmth here are we talking about Like emotional light worm like you're having a good Christmas vibe. You're spending time together. Yeah Ah yes that warm feeling of being at home with Pokka bells cannon on the Stereo and the eggnog and sugar cookies and the Christmas tree. ASANA macaw Santa Claus. Yeah that's the win lund. Feeling what makes you feel when one The Beer I'm holding right now okay. So that's more of a physical windblown than the original inland. Is there a way to make sure that other people know what I'm talking about. Look like wind line if that can mean warm warm physically or emotionally. Is there a word that means only physically. Yeah if Speaking of the only face core like if you are marrying an extra jacket equal Kosei Hudnut Hook In La Hoya. Yeah so while who would mean warm in a way that will not be mistaken for emotional one. So that's walk but here we're talking about win win win. One can mean physical warmth right. Yeah I can form away okay. So it only means physically physically warm in a formal context so in most conversations. If I say when one people will assume I'm talking about the emotional or feeling okay. Good good to know so. That's win one. All right boof on a win one not annoying. It's just a great warm feeling of being at home to which he replied cushier Jaren God altruism but crusher but Johnson family people. Golly al I love this what does this mean. Got Al is Got His gun got awkward. Yeah and now is Milton chat or discussion or conversation. Yeah now so Ganga Leon shorten the Tube Gol yet means awkward conversation. Okay how do we usually use guile You can say what how Gao What Tall Yen Dahlia? I Hate Alberto Stations. And this would usually be like awkward like get to know your conversations like hey nice to meet you. Hey Nice to meet you too. Where are you from China cool? Yeah that's very that's very golly. All right okay And that's the way I I usually hear guile people talking about awkward small talk yet or no one really knows what to say and people are looking for topics. But here we said God y'all juncture and juncture means politics tax holiday ticks so God y'all juncture means have an awkward conversation about politics. Yes Oh cushier John Hayden darlie alley all juncture. If your family has an awkward conversation about politics some Sun. What can you do what can be done some a bunch of a bunch support? Yeah so custer Jaren Golly outjump Jerusalem a bat but if your family has awkward political conversations what will you do you and I said Boo Kwa woman of Hoti hung who's It won't happen it can't happen. It won't be like that. That woman to what he wo woman. The our watt. He is topics. Yeah topics while being like speech speech and TV being like subjects are subjects Our topic's woman to what he lis-. Yeah Hon. Meaning Very Mary Ann. Lewis year meaning harmonious harmonious very hus-. Yeah now this is actually sort of a a loaded word right. How how do we use us? Yeah I mean you could say our beer in the in a slogan on the streets. WHO's usual way propaganda slogans lizzy show way harmonious society? Yeah or who should be a harmonious neighborhood community. Yeah Yeah what does that convey in this. This sort of Propaganda since I think it has something to do with a baked concept Chinese dream really. Yeah tell me more. I can't Dan because because we are very close yet. Yeah Huss- Yeah People. Don't talk about topics that are Boohoo. Assia Yep yes. So that's weird weird because every time or most times that I see the word Hushieh. I know that it's being used as a euphemism is almost never used to mean. Actually harmonious audiences are being used in a political context to mean acceptable or This is the endorsed behavior or it's being used sort of comically talk about. Oh we're not Gabrielle Juncture. We are being very Hussey Don't worry about us. We're good little people. Wink wink nudge nudge. We're very blessed. And that's sort of taken to an extreme when sometimes cliche is used as a verb like if someone is talking about something they shouldn't talk about and then suddenly they disappear here from the internet or disappear from label or they're accounted shutdown than we can say PA Bay Sheila Yep he was harmonized harmonized popping up his account got delayed. But Hey it's just it's all for the issue for the harmony and sometimes the the word who they censored the word really yeah so to a white inclusive you say another word which has Hasid who issue yup what is that who meaning river and says crap Raver Crab River crabs so even the word hush yet is is not Hussien. Yeah because you'll be censored for talking about harmonies so to get around that you're talking about river. Crabs is there really an actual species of crab called her. She of of course is delicious really. Yeah I've never had them before you should try them. I should try them. I'm very close. Yeah so I should have some close. Yeah Yeah let's see people eighteen an or boroughs so this sentence woman wate Clinton Hush on the surface it looks like it saying are topics. Topics of conversation are all very harmonious but sort of carries that overtone of We're not talking about things that we know that we shouldn't talk about the weather. It's because we're being censored or whether it's because We know that it will cause problems if we talk about it. People get angry so we shouldn't do that. We should should be Hussier. y'All idiom we should be `harmonious eat the end a little bit since we should just be a little bit harmonious yell see how me Bucher Shiama right. I don't even know where to go on forever. Yeah so we'll leave that where it is and get back to this this conversation but before we do that. Let's review the target. Words for example to return to your country is called quite will yes so this time I am of year lots and lots of foreigners are waigwa sundance quake or quake as you go back to your country to spend the the festival Waigwa Huaxia while Yao Wake War Whittier. Congratulations thank you. And then what's the word that means annoying nor Yang Fumble Fund. Yes five yeah fan so fan fan. Is it annoying or if USA Means d realize how annoying you are. Yeah let me along you alone I will find you and then if we want to talk about of those you know just like Awkward Conversation was then called Gabrielle. Dial Awkward Talk Ghalia injure injure means politics. Oh golly Al Jer is awkward conversation about politics but if you never have awkward conversations about politics that's because you are very harmonious and harmony is cushite Kushtia and sometimes her. She is not Kushtia so instead we we say who is it which is river crabs. Okay with that in mind. Let's do the conversation one more time. But let's flip it around and Shannon. Dan Zia wake warmer quite pay talion audit. Hey Todd Haida. Fan Boo boo for cushier. Gol Joan some playoff woman party focused. Thank you for being with me today.

S01 - This Kid Life #9 - Kids Talk Accessibility

"I do wheelies through sixties coping. EIGER DUNLAP's and I'll tell you scrape which I and Nala all all his e mud Venus. Hello and welcome to this kid. This kid by I'm Jennifer macy. This kid life is a podcast for kids brought to you by the Sydney Opera House where kids talked about big ideas. But I I want to introduce you to our panel. You'll hear them pop up during the episode. So let's make them. Hello my name is Suzanne and dine ten years old. My name is Charlotte and I'm seven seven years old. My name is Richard and I'm ten years old was near and I'm eleven years old. My Name's Kevin. I'm twelve years old. I'm sophy and I'm ten years old. My name is Lily and I'm eleven eleven. Hello my name is Travis continues old. I am Chandler and I'm eleven. Hi My name's Isabel and I'm eleven years old. My name is Joe. Lean and I'm ten years old old tonight. We're talking about a lot of kids. Josh is really into sports. The trains before and after school several times a week. That is when he's not down at the skate park personal training swimming. Aw I believe and this here he even got compete in the Commonwealth guy by the way Josiah's living with a disability. He uses a wheelchair to get around and compete Peyton all of these different sporting events. He's been using a wheelchair since he was three. Josh was born with a rare disease that affected his legs which means he can't walk doc. Disability Sake rely genesis that means I caught them my knees or move my legs and I have club fee and and and I'm missing a tale burn on a missing some burns on my back and I have learning gaps so that basically means I can't bend my knees. He's all like moves my needs so I can't like walk like Josh has three different types of wheelchairs one to get around and to that he uses for different sporting events. And they'll vote chair. I A skateboard. I got a hand cycle and I got tractor. The Hen Circle is a wheelchair that you pedal with your hands. He uses this wheelchair for the suckling leg of the triathlons oen competing trading in wins. Article has one big wheel at the front and Mantra big decide and you just basically just like Roy hands up now. OCTA MACHINE SL peddling hand. And what's the difference between that and a track will too well was track `Chez They have one small wheel unto big wheels and hand cycles can change gear like you can change it to one. Two seven seven fosters one the easiest so basically once easiest seven hottest so the tracks Arco is especially really designed wheelchair to compete in track and field events such as one hundred two hundred made a sprints in marathons while the hand Sokoll is rice against other Rod. What is in triathlons and cycling competitions that Rod? Yeah Okay Great I think of God. That Joshua's competed in full triathlons on the gold. Coast and recently competed competed in a special event in the Commonwealth Games. Thanks to a bit of help from two time. Gold Paralympian could Fernley and he takes his training pretty seriously. Obviously triathlons will Close it normally sought to fiszman than the than the running under the pink triathlon. athlon and the swimming was in the pool. And I really good at that. I didn't come loss Just before the last person and then full all the vice a hand cycle then ended. The running which was in my wheelchair now came in the middle. So what's it like competing being in a trust long. Well it is what he joke. And it's hard but when you get at the middle of the end so worth it what does it feel like when you cross the finish line. AAC feel good for myself. Yeah I think that's just amazing. Not many people can do that. have any of you. Donna triathlon. As long look at my parents have competed in a triathlon. Dislike Fun is a very difficult thing to do and especially if you're in a wheelchair that's like incredible. I could be hod. That's just amazing. Because I can't even do that and I'm eleven and I can nor even finish cross country and he's in the wheelchair doing a triathlon. Like I'm kind of jealous. I can barely ride a bike like thinking about me. He doing a triathlon. Yeah I can't do it. He's one in my million like back to Josh. Josiah's fitter and more athletic than many boys is his age and embiid fearless. He's not bothered if he takes a stack on the skate. Ramp sixties. Because I'm a dead devil and how Addison Big Ryan ups feel randy skin. They always feel going to tip or low but I always scare them. I am a little dead dead and what happens if you do. Oh I normally save myself but spending my hands down joe shoes like any other kid his age and he doesn't doesn't marketing adults tried to wrap him up in cotton wool just because he uses a wheelchair and I'm saying my head if I all I can see what I'm doing raw. Aw Yeah I know my limited sometimes I go over my limit or you've evolved over. He's done it before he's GonNa be fine. I think that it gives him. I almost like black freedom because if the parents are all all flat. Are you a K. K.. Every time like he might fall out of the wheelchair then. He's kind of learning learning so if he's in the world is allowed to like maybe heard and stuff and good and stuff like that in full out then he kind of feels like a normal normal kid. It's good that he has some of that freedom and you want some of that freedom that he can being a kid like every should have that. If you're always just stuck stuck inside of the Tom and Nikon do anything then you barely can do anything. And it's just four and just being stuck inside star. He is just a normal kid so so why can't I do stuff like other kids. Let's make some other kids who aren't worried about falling out of the we'll I'm Sebastian. McIntosh I'm fourteen an actual room. I've been doing bus twenty of us. How often often of About once every two weeks Irish going to the ball game and stock near Knoxville lava flows. What was that like? These kids do wheelchair basketball training after school every Tuesday afternoon but they do have one pit pave other lexus. There are lots of says that my school I get it under by like a lift and severe they ornery so all stays at the skype rat may be fun today. Tricks on stays at the train station or at the shops or at school can be super frustrating frustrating for wheelchair users. Stead are just had I get out of my wheelchair I woke up and my mom carries wheelchair. Does that happen. A lot happens because one time I went to his head wrestle and they'll stay I had a Hammer Cup and then at the end they asked if I would like a free not every every wheelchair users can easily in kroll up the stays so accessibility the ability to go wherever you want. Whenever you want becomes an issue she? Let's look at an example of this because of his disability Josh's smaller than other kids his age that means he's not allowed on some of the rides at the theme theme parks on the Gold Coast near his house. You know when you go to the same pocket you really want to go on a ride your your your number one most favorite ride and and the light and like the people there days and they say nope sorry Condo at because he's in a wheelchair and how does that make you feel Makes me feel sad because I know I can do it. But it's just they they weren't let me and it doesn't seem fair does it. Yes it does not seem fair. Basically do more than able body kids can do like three hundred push ups in fifteen minutes hundred push ups and ten to one hundred breakup environment account data. So do you think it's fair that asked cities and towns sometimes darned have lifts or ramps which means Bucci uses or other. The people living with a disability. Can't get around easily from place to place. I think it's kind of disappointing that you don't have transportation. Because what about all the people that have disabilities lose and they can't get upstairs and they can't use that because well. How am I supposed to get these days without help? So it's just sad that you wouldn't think of other people when you're building that qualify. Pull someone and he has a disability so he struggles like walking up stairs blue areas that he lives in. He can't go to this school because they have so many steps. I think when you building a school you should take into perspective. That dog and me people with disabilities or maybe that broken leg and are in a wheelchair and they're gonNA have difficulties. He's like walking up stairs or like steep hills and stuff Kev. You've been to a train station where there's lifts it's crazy. I think it's really unfed adjusts to have stairs and like no ramps or elevators because if someone has a disability and they can't walk upstairs or they're in a wheelchair Chad don't think he would be very fair. You need to make it fair for everyone you need to make it so that everyone can music or something like that you can't just be Solely focused on people that don't have disabilities. It needs to be fair for everyone as as well. I don't think the world has adapted yet to all the people with disabilities. I feel like this still is changed. That can be done to make it even easier for people with disabilities to get around like they should have. Every school should have a ramp for people with disabilities unease or if someone breaks lakes. I don't really think the whole world like the whole world has adapted and like is as accessible as it should be for all these people like they're so many people and I think as he said one in five people have a disability. That's just like so many one in like a million or anything. We need more accessibility. Thirty for the world and people with disabilities. Yeah I definitely think it's improved. Didn't think it's quite there yet every accessible but I definitely think it's improving Jean. What about people with other disabilities such as vision impairment or autism? What about simple? Oh things like knowing if you have a five or ten dollars in your hand. When you're at the shops have everybody saying the Yes What is special about this ten dollar Knight Phil Blind People? It has a little can recognize. What like typing noticed it is? It's like those dots on the notes that you can feel so you know which one is rich difference between the nights while ah five dollars a ten dollar not. How do you know that this person isn't just GonNa rip you off like? Oh Yeah. This is ten dollars and you give him a fifty fifty or whatever. What are we going to do? I think is slowly adapting to the fact that people need this like this is a part of their everyday life. So what if I told you that the person who campaigned argued to the Reserve Bank of Australia to change this to put the Bri violon was a thirteen year old. Kid I re- so amazed like I'm so I would be so inspired. It's so amazing. To see how young people to make a difference so you have to be own pal like Donald trump or something. You can do anything even if you're thirteen like that's amazing. Thirteen year old blind boys started asking asking the Reserve Bank to print tactile banknotes more than a year ago as seen his campaign Pale. Connor Macleod's idea was sparked when he was given money for Christmas but couldn't tell how much he had conner started a petition to allow vision impaired people to tell the difference between denominations nations fifty seven thousand people signed it and the Human Rights Commission and mccloud was just thirteen when he started lobbying the government and the Reserve Bank to change. Just try is banknotes. Now if you know closely at the new ten and five dollar note you'll notice to bombs in office security reasons. That's Braille while the writing that blind people can read by feeling fingers thanks to Connor Macleod. Who was nominated for the New South Wales young person of the year those dots now now every ten and five dollars in Australia? That's truly inspiring. It's really cool and intriguing. How a young teenage boy who is not that much older than me can convince the The the people who make the notes in Australia to change them. I think that's really really smart. I think helpful than they can like you. You know how much change they get and like how much they have to give. I think it's impressive. That he did and I mean it's helped all the people he's taking another step and now it's so much easier for him to save. Money has not get ripped off by anyone saying Oh yeah this is totally early off when it's maybe a five dollar night so I think that's really good. I think it's a great idea that boy to change it because that's is just amazing. It's incredible if if you're still a kid you can do anything back to Josh. Josh is an ambassador effort anti-bullying organization called I can I will and even I. Some kids might steer at him in his wheelchair. He's got a cool trick to help. Break the ICE S. They Jewish there. I just like Poparelli. We all say hi basically particular on the MERV if they don't be nice tea and Josiah's some big dreams for the future. 'cause I WANNA be a Paralympic tennis player when I grow up I the gold medal at everything will it. Sounds like he's on the right track. Get it track and field athlete. He's on the right track. That is flagging in an clarice. And before before we go. He's clarice. How with the official rules? Who Will Chair basketball? The basic rules of wheelchair basketball very similar to running boss couple. A player May wheelchair and bounce the bull similar tenuously however if the bull is picked up and end all placed on the players slap. Hey or she is our in the allowed to push twice before they obliterated to shoot pause or dribble the ball again there is no double dribble ruling. Wheelchair bus. Traveling violation occurs is if the player takes more than two pushes while imposition of the boom with that in the event that play fools Out of his or her ch- a referee my stop the play if in his or her opinion to play is at risk of being injured otherwise play. We'll continue. Thanks clarice. That's all for this kid.

107 - Learning To Be Silent

"Hello and welcome to another episode of the secular buddhism podcast. This is episode number one hundred seven. I am your host to know a rochetta. Today i am going to share a few more zenko on's and talk about what they mean for me as always keep in mind. You don't need to use what you learn from buddhism to be a buddhist. You can use it to learn to be a better. Whatever you already are earlier this week. I had an experience with one of our neighbors so we live in mexico now and we live in a gated community and inside of the little complex of homes there about thirty homes here <hes> we're lucky that there are a lot of kids and they ride their bikes and it's been great for for us to have our kids outside playing and making friends and <hes> learning spanish through playing and interacting with the other kids well. One of the kids was riding by on his bicycle and his steering wheel or the the handlebars were loose so i asked him if he wanted me to adjust them to tighten them and he said yes. I would love that so he came over and they're in our little garage kind of area. I took out my tools and i have a lot of tools that i brought down with me that are tools that i use specifically for maintaining my para motor so i took out some of the tools from this little bag i adjusted his steering wheel or i'm sorry his handlebars and he said thank you very much and then over the course of the next ten to fifteen minutes he kept coming back and asking me to adjust his the pegs to tighten the chain to adjust the brakes breaks to tweak little things on his bike and i kept adjusting everything for him. I adjusted the height of the seat so when all of this was done on and his bike was just the way he wanted it. He said thank you so much. He said i've never met someone who is such an expert mechanic and i laughed and and i said i'm not an expert mechanic but i can fix bikes and that was the end of that and he left and was riding his bike and i started thinking how funny that he would consider me an expert mechanic because one of the things i've always been known for in my circle of friends is the opposite not being mechanically inclined and i have to get help from people to do anything that's mechanical now. If it's on a computer yeah i'm the one that they go to i._t. And tech stuff that's that's something that i'm good at but when it's <hes> mechanical or just general repairs around the house that's not me it's never urban me <hes> now i must say that that's changed a lot since i got into para motoring because i have become more mechanical mechanically inclined to maintain gene and tinker with the motor that i used to fly and that's why i even have the tools to be able to help me side with his bicycle so <music> but what i thought was funny about that whole interaction. I thought you know the rest of his life. You'll have this memory of a neighbor this american guy who was an expert mechanic who fix mike and there's a new image in this kid's head of someone. That's not a lot of ways. It's not a real. It's not an accurate accurate image and it made me think of interactions that i've had in my life and my youth with people somebody a one time interaction or limited interactions with someone and boom. I established in that moment an image of who that person was or something that they were known for or something they were good at or maybe something that they were not get at and that's it and that's the accurate picture in my head of that person and then i started thinking how many of those pictures teachers were entirely off the mark. I'm thinking not just the images the inaccurate images of someone being better than they are at something but also the the reverse verse right somebody who maybe one or two limited interactions and i thought oh that's a really mean person or or that that guy is <hes> awful or rude food or whatever it is and to <hes> you know had i known or had more interaction to realize how off my assessment or my image was of that person and i'm sure that happens to us all the time whether it's it's images or assessments that were making of other people or situations in life or or backwards at other other people are making of us. Imagine how many people out there have such a neroni as mental picture of who i am because they they do it based off of limited interactions. The podcast is a good example right. Anyone who has interactions with me through the podcast only knows that side of me hasn't seen me in other aspects of my life and how i am and i thought about this when we did our first nor second trip to uganda one of the participants of the of the of the trip that we did in africa mentioned once we were there in person how different was to see me in person into into here my sense of humor. I have a very dry. I think is the word of dry sense of humor <hes> but i very much have a sense of humor and i'm always <hes> weedy about things and that was a side that doesn't come out a lot in the podcast ask because it doesn't lend itself to that but interacting personnel like wow. I didn't know this about you. That's a it's funny to see the site of you and that's how we all are right. We all have certain sides about us that we present in different contexts how we are school how we are at work. You know somebody who only knows you at work and then later sees you at the park. I don't know in a family setting or you know the you that you are when things are going going well in the you that you are when you're scared and you're you're panicked. I experienced first time with a cousin and i i know my cousins really well. We grew up together her and <hes> this particular cousin is terrified of what will everything but we were out writing. <hes> you know the the banana china that they pull you behind on a boat when you go to the beach we were on one of those and she's just deathly afraid of sharks and it was her and her husband and then my brother my twin brother and i and and probably a few more people can't remember who else was was there but we were writing the banana and they ride those in a way where at some point they try make you flip and that's exactly what happened out in the ocean. We rocked the banana and the n._f._l. Or tipped to the side and then we were in the water and man there was this other than i had never seen before and i essentially grew up with her and here we are as as adults and she is just you know it's all out of fear due to <hes> in her moment of fears you screaming at us and screaming her husband and this is all your fault is is very interesting. It is comical so we were laughing and trying to not laugh but because we could tell she was deathly afraid that a shark was <unk> getter but anyway what i'm getting at is the person that and she was under extreme fear is absolutely not the person that she is when she's not in fear and i don't think it's fair to paint one picture of someone and say oh oh that's who they are. It's like well. That's who they are in what context so with that as the background of my experience this week of someone calling me an expert mechanic which i thought was kind of comical. I wanted to share a few more zen cohen's and one of the ones i wanna share is called. Hold joe suzanne so this is how it goes joe shoe began the study of zen when he was sixty years old and continued until he was eighty when he realized zen he taught from the age of eighty until he was one hundred and twenty a student once asked him. If i haven't anything in mind what shall i do. Joel replied throw it out but if i haven't anything how can i throw it out continued the questioner. Well said joe shoot do than carry it out and that's it. That's the end of that cohen. That's one that i enjoy it alludes to what we talk about with the co on empty empty your teacup the idea of getting rid of of the concepts and the the beliefs and the ideas in our mind that may be blinding us or preventing who knows from seeing reality a little bit more clearly and in this case what i like about joshua's response saying throw it out and and someone hussein will there's nothing there in the first place. How do i throw it out. <hes> a says oh well in that case carry it out to me that it's too important messages. They're one one throw in something out as a little bit more aggressive than kindly carrying it out and to me that's an invitation of of sane will if i can't get rid of a concept that's in my mind. How can i carry it out rather than aggressively throw it out. Sometimes that may mean study more the topic more <hes> read more understand it more than my view starts to shift because <hes> i carry it out by opening up in a kinder way than than being aggressive. That's one way that i sometimes interpreted but the other way that i interpret this cohen is that he doesn't give up the central message if getting rid of it and to me <music> that is important to understand because the person hussein will if i don't have anything in my mind what shall i do what josias trying to tell him as you. You have something in your mind that if i don't have anything in my mind that is something in your mind so again it's the same answer in different words as a way of telling this this this questioner that but you do have something in your mind is as long as you're asking that question than you have that idea in your mind or like <unk> hana's talked about with the concept of nothing right here. I have nothing in my mind will he would say well is nothing something and if we analyze that we understand that yes nothing is something is to have the idea in my head of what nothing is is something the and that is something that you can throw out or you can carry it out so <hes> for me. This cohen is a constant invitation to carry out whatever thought i have in my head <hes> idea adia or belief. I have in my mind. Even if that is the idea of nothingness and i think that's a really important one. We're talking about buddhist concepts because there are big concepts in buddhism like the idea of emptiness or like the idea of nothingness in the moment. I have an idea of what nothingness is. I've just given it another idea. Some constantly battling with you know the emptying of the mind versus the thought of emptying the mind because those are different things in the thought of emptying the mind is still a thought and there we are stuck in this situation that is kind of a spiral right so you may be listening thinking oh well what is the point and the answer is well the same thing as justice <unk>. Throw it out and if you're in if you really honestly think but there's nothing to throw throw out then take his second hanser then carry it out and i'll leave you with that. That's the end of of that cohen and that's a fun one to to work with and i thought thought that related in some ways to i was <hes> sharing this week with the interaction i had with our neighbor who thought i am mechanical expert and for me to throw things out when i when i'm thinking of it in that context i like to imagine what are the views are the beliefs that i have everyone around me perhaps more burley the ones that are closer to me to not just the the neighbor that i occasionally interact with. I mean i don't know anything about that. Person based on a couple of interaction so i definitely want to throw out any mental picture that i may have there but we we do this with our closest people right our spouse our kids our parents siblings and we have this ideal. This is how they are and joseph would say throw it out and if you can't throw it out carry it out to me. That's an invitation to stay open to not get caught up in attaching to the the story worry that i have of of who this person is or how the situation is or how life is some move onto the next cohen and this this one is called the gates of paradise. I know i know that i have talked about this one in previous podcasts before but it's been a while so i'm gonna share shared again the gates of paradise a soldier named nabu. She came to hug wing and asked. Is there really a paradise advice on a hell. Who were you inquired. How choline i'm a samurai warrior replied you. Soldier exclaimed how choline what kind of ruler would have you as his guard. Your face looks like that of a beggar. Noguchi gay became so angry that he began to draw his sword but hukou continued. Oh so you have a sword. Your weapons probably much too dull to cut off my head as now as noble. She drew his sword hawk. Wayne remarked here in the gates of hell. At these words the samurai perceived the masters disciplined sheathed his sword unbowed here opened the gates of paradise said halloween so this is a co on. I've always enjoyed because this gets at the heart of one of those buddhist concept said that i think really speaks to me really gets gets at something important which is the concept of heaven and hell of paradise ace being something that is accessible and available in the here and now and that's exactly what's happening in this <hes> cohen huck lean who's the zen master there and then you have nobu shiga who's the samurai soldier who appears he's wanting to learn about these concepts of paradise and hell or heaven and hell and the zen master does this incredible job of teaching him in that moment by unquestioning him back or ridiculing him and invoking in him the strong sense of being angered and an upset and helping keenum realized that right there those are the gates of hell there you are you're in it right now and then when he realizes that flips it on 'cause now he's feeling gratitude for having learned and any say that sense of gratitude that bowing like everything that you're doing for how you perceive me now boom those are the gates of paradise and and really helping them to understand that they're both accessible in the here and now and i really liked that that is a very powerful cohen to think about and <hes> to recognize that sometimes we go through life and were were trying to arrive at this state of heaven or the state of hell now. Some people people believed that it's something that you ultimately arrive at right like if you were good enough in life you go to one if you're not good enough in life you go to the other but i love how buddhism is just trying to say. Wait a second whether or not that is the case <hes> we can actually experienced these states right now in the present moment. Perhaps that should concern us more because rather than worrying about where we're gonna go. We should ask what where am i now. Am i in heaven and paradise or am i in hell and they're they're out from my own doing right my own thoughts and actions and deeds and i'm sure all of you listening to this <hes> can relate that at some point in your life and some some stages of your life you have felt like you are in the there at the gates of hell right experiencing regret door or notions of anger frustration or whatever it is something so unpleasant that you may as well be in hell because of how pleasant the current moment is and and you've probably experienced the flip side to moments where nothing else matters any everything could be going wrong but the way i'm feeling in this moment is so we'll pleasant that this may as well be heaven. I know i've experienced both of those the different stages of my life and i love how m- isn't his inviting me to to assess these through the lens of the present moment to the lens of here now where am i which of these gates am i experiencing and more importantly the deeper deeper analysis there would be y you know <hes> nobu she could say why did that offend me so much. When you started questioning my ability ready to be a samurai now not only my learning about the gates of hell for me but i'm learning the causes of arriving at the gates of hell and that's probably an even deeper less than i would hope. I like to imagine that nobu she went home and he thought about that and started doing more work to understand the causes of the gates of hell in the causes of the gates of paradise for him particularly in his own life so that is the second co on. I wanted to share the gates of paradise and i'm gonna jump to the third one which is called learning to be silent and that is the title of this podcast episode today learning to be silent. This is is a fun one. It kind of made me laugh out loud but i want to discuss it a little bit learning to be silent. The pupils of the tendai school used to study eddie meditation before zen enter japan four of them who were intimate friends promised one another to observe seven days of silence on the first day all were silent their meditation had begun auspiciously but when the night came and the oil lamps were growing dim one of the people's could not help exclaiming to a servant fixed those lamps the second people were surprised to hear the first one talk. We're not supposed to say a word. He remarked you. Too are stupid. Why did you talk asked the third. I'm the only one who has not talked concluded the fourth and i love that because in in that one moment you have the spiraling of the end of silence right the first one who breaks the silence the second one who a uh rebukes the first one for having spoken the third one who says both of the ones who have spoken are idiots and then there's the fourth one who needs to make sure it's so important for this one to make sure that they they know that he wasn't the one who talked that hint that active <hes> one and then to now breaks the silence as well so what i like about this one aside from it being pretty comical is looking at the archetypes of the of the people that we're we're talking about here so the first one sees a situation in this case. The lamps needed to be fixed because they were going out and despite bite the vow of silence. It's so important to fix this scenario here that i'm gonna have to break my silence to say something over something. That arguably shouldn't have mattered so what if the lights go out right. I decided i'm gonna sit here and be quiet. I didn't decide. I'm going to sit here and be quiet. Only if the lights stay on so that's the first student who sorry i cannot stay silent about this thing. That's bothering me so boom. I broke my bow silence. That's one personality then you have student number two. This is <hes> and try to see yourself in these students or people that you know in these in these personality so people number two the one who when they hear somebody somebody's speaking. They're gonna make sure that they can rebuke them. You're not supposed to do that will in the act of making sure that you know that. I know that you're not supposed to do that now. I just his broke the rule right but it's that important for me to tell you that you're not supposed to do that. We all have been that probably at one point or another or for sure know someone who's has been that. We've all been people one at some point. We've probably all been pupil to at some point and then you've got people. Three pupil. Three is so smart art right this is i mentioned this in previous podcast episode with facebook personalities. This is that the smart aleck air unite person who's so smart now how people threes gotta come out and make sure people wanting to know how dumb they are for what they did. <hes> sure i could stay there silently and just like you know these guys are <hes> <hes> but i'm not gonna say anything no not when people three kicks in i've got to make sure that you know that i know how done you are and in that process of doing so there goes the silence so that's people number three and then of course pupil number four this is kind of the holier than thou one right like people four was was doing it all perfect. He could have just sat there he or she could have just sat there quietly and watched all of this chaos may be kind of chuckled inside and maintained paned on on on the path of silence but no pupil four has got to make sure that pupils one two and three no that pupil for it was not the one who who was gonna talk and in the process of saying i'm the only one who has not talked breaks the silence and i love that i love construct deconstructing deconstructing some of these personalities that are implied in people's one two three and four and and asking myself when and how often am i one of those four and this is like the example given here is silence learning to be silent but i think you can get this in in other things right if you decide. I said i'm going to be kind. Okay yeah. We all agree. I'm going to be kind and there goes the first person who does something. That's not very kind in there goes the second person who rebukes unkind person for not being kind but does it in an unkind way right and then we spiral on the the people number threes in the jump in and call the first two more for not being kind and then you've got the self righteous number four who's gonna unkindly tell everyone how kind they are right so that's a fun one to work with a fun one to think about learning to be silent and i may talk about a another buddhist concept except called noble silence but i think i'll leave that for another podcast episode to build off of this one a little bit but those are the three that i wanted to share with you today and the names of those three co on the first one is called joe shoes zan. Joe shoe is the is the old man who studied zen then. We have the gates of paradise and the third one. I just shared his called learning to be silent. You can probably google those if you wanna find the sources or if you happen to have a book of cohen's. I'm sure you'll find them in there because these are all common ones. I'll share more in a future episode. It's been fun exploring these cohen's and as i go through my cohen book i've highlighted all the ones that i would like to bring up in the podcast so i have a few more. I'm gonna share before i'm done with this stretch of cohen series that i've been sharing <hes> so again. Thank you for taking the time to listen for being a part of this journey with me.

"Working interferences is intended for mature audiences since the hosts never grew up. Someone needs to be the adult. Welcome to working interferences with Josh and the dental acclaimed podcasts for the average dentist. Here is Josh lanes. Fries. What is up? Welcome to the working interference podcast. It didn't advice show. I'm Josh will Austin, and I m lands Timmerman, Lance. What's new with you, buddy? Same old same old. We actually had sunshine today. So something little new nice rained here role reversal seems to be happening. Yeah. Terrain all week has been sunshiny. They're not all week. But it hasn't been shitty. So went from not shitty. Pretty nice. I'm like, the rain. I know I've said that before wouldn't if I live. Wouldn't if I live there. But. The core. Absolutely. It's a smell of one. No. Who Petra core is what is that like that thunderstorm ozone EPA? But probably I think it's the supposedly this smell when the rain hits the concrete and suddenly get that little smooth fresh. Yeah. And when it's been raining for a while that it's washed away. But right. Yeah. Yeah. No. I like everything about a rainy day. Rainy days are great. You like Eddie rabbit. I don't know who that is. So okay, all he's dead. He was a country country. Singer had a song was a hit like in the late seventies early eighties. I love a rainy night. I'm interests are not singing for you. What's his point of that lake that he's going to get laid was that with the whole point of the Songhua house. Remember the lyrics? I love a rainy night levering. And I love to hear the thunder and the lightning when it lights up the sky. Oh, it makes me feel good. I think he just was rambling. It was typical country song of the eighties was a bunch of nonsense flat rambling in the age. Yeah. Really ramble anymore now. No. Days are gone to wrap it now. Now, it's all hip hop. Has become really like the rock of this decade. Really is it's Monia this century was not expecting that. No. It's rock his dad, kind of to be honest with you. It's hibernating. Yes. That'll be back. That'd be back. We pack when I'm sick. Again. I was just sick. If you weeks ago, what's your problem? Did I don't know? I really don't know. I woke up. Sucks. I don't know. What's helping? I is that I said as we're getting ready to record the show because I I the office that I recorded is is big and there's nothing soft anywhere in. So sounds echoes ran it so I wear a blanket kind of like a hood over the computer screen and no for me in the microphone. Yeah. Maybe it's a smallpox blanket. Is that possible? It's possible. I mean vaccinated. I think I never asked. I mean, pretty sure it was. I mean, I went to school. And there was no problem. All right. Well, immunity by community. Yeah. I guess so. Yeah, I don't know Cup and have been fighting some kind of bug, and it just sucks, man. So I'm gonna try not to hack all over you guys infect you through. The headphones at your buds any of that stuff. So were you able to go to work? Yeah. I mean, it's not that bad. And if you don't have to go to work, you're healthy enough to do a damn podcast. I guess that's probably true. It's probably, but we're gonna do we talked about it. We're going to do a mini episodes or where do one question now? It's a banger of a question. It's great question. We're going to do one episode or one one question maybe about half our normal length and be back next week. And I was thinking next week. We can really talk about avengers. And we can really talk about gave it throughout. Okay. Because this week I feel it's still not quite enough time because they don't want to spoil anything. Yeah. I posted something that had really something to do with Infinity war, and the friend of mine went. Yeah. You suck. And like, we'll wait. Did you click it? I don't even dare like it. It's not a spoiler. I wouldn't do that. I don't trust anyone. Well now. All right. Yeah. That's I I'm very cautious about spoiling like, and I feel like Infinity were in game. Or what was in in time? Sinking in game. I feel like there was a lot of sort of consciousness about not spoiling it for people Daima thrones on the other hand was like spoiled immediately just like with everybody having pictures of of what happened in the episode immediately afterwards. So I feel like that sort of was anybody who didn't see it at the moment that it happened. You learn about it really quickly. Yeah. Yeah. We watched via the app, so we see get the east coast feed. So it's six o'clock here nine o'clock eastern. And so we're seeing at three hours before all the other people around here. So I tried to not spoil, but I still posted a picture of aria. But I mean, it was just right her not it wasn't doing anything. Just a I'm a fan. You know? And I did the same thing after she showed her breasts and people call me, a pervert. Well. It's really weird is that we're lucky if what we literally have her breasts flopping around not really flopping because they're like beak up. No flop just shows her breasts exposed in the next episode. She's flying through the air. Switching hands like a pro. She so awesome. Wake up pro. Advice show. That's what I'm told. We have to your questions, which are questions, we find an all this neat. Little Facebook options or questions for Moreno, restrict Deltona civility members at their own unique brand of advice. So please we need your questions. They are the sustenance we crave you can submit your questions to working interferences that you dot com. Now, we don't want just any question do ans-. We do not. We don't want a bunch of boring questions. Like, what's the best fought for clinicians report survey because you all know that comic sans ever for a CR survey ever. We went the questions at Gordon christianson cannot answer. Shouts does act. Our buddies who sent us a picture of a clinicians report survey and no joke. The font that Gordon used for this was comic sans. So let's where amongst the funds. Would you rank like how many? Whoa. What series of events would need to occur for you to use comic sans fought on anything related your business being aneurysm. Probably not an hordic aneurysm more likely cerebral, however, some kind of some kind of brain bleed mental trauma. My hippocampus is going to be just shot. Yeah. Right in my amid della. Let's not forget why that could be what's going on now to be fair. I mean, how will this Gordon? Yeah. That's true. That's true. He's like at least one hundred ten. Gordon? Got a lot for dentistry. I love you. I think you're amazing of a big fan comic. Saints is a tough looks. It's not a good one. Never looks good. Do you remember when the Cavs owner, Dan Gilbert? Sit to letter to LeBron after he left for the heat. I believe it was the first time he left he wrote like this is a big f you Leonard LeBron how the the key, you know. Cavs don't need him, and he spoiled and he's a brat. Okay. All the sold that long diatribe already. And he wrote the letter and comic sans. Really? Yes. Wow. Yeah. Yeah. Tell flick for my guy, tough luck. I question tonight from bread it. Reddit user, you underscore DWI. You underscore de WG asks very tattooed dentistry still an option a friend of mine has expressed interest in going into dental school. She's extremely touted like head to toe hands. Chest arms and even small face stats. Not Mike Tyson type, but has some dots. And I think another small tad somewhere to on her face that to go along with multiple piercings. I think she's crazy for thinking she'll get in somewhere. But what do I know about admissions in two thousand nineteen anyone have any classmates who fit the mold? Wait. Well. So I do not know the post Malone wanted to be a dentist. But apparently they do. Can I be honest about something should be? It's about transparency here. All right. What is post Malone? Do. I honestly have no idea. Oh, he's a singer. Osa musical for as a musician. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I don't know why I was thinking like a reality TV person. No. He's got some good songs. Good stuff. Really? Yeah. Yeah. There's the kind of stuff all the humming along my daughter will say us post on my this is post Malone. Oh, I'll be damned. I'm looking at pictures of on. Okay. Do you? Remember what I said that definition of tough look for my guy was the side ponytail with the cowboy hat on. I do not. That we saw we saw somebody at a concert in LA. They had side ponytail with a with a cowboy hat. Okay. Yeah. I listen to you anyway. So it's not likely to remember. I think post Malone might be the definition of tough look for my guy. Yeah. I think you're right. It's not a good luck. Now, I was surprised when I I found a picture of like really this. I'm trying to figure out like what these faced hats say. Yeah. What are these things say, I think, they're all haiku? They might be there's enough. There's enough writing on there. He's. Yeah. It's times have changed. I mean, if if this was like in the sixties and seventies tattered up. I I'd say the other is not likely to be getting into dental school. But nowadays to be fair though in the sixties and seventies. There were only two types of people who are who had tattoos sailor's sailor bikers. That's it like that was all there was there will like there wasn't this generation nineteen year old the women who had tattoos everywhere. Yeah. Now, it doesn't do problem is odds are I mean, if she's able to cover enough of it all she's got to do is get in to dental school. Because at that point once she's in there, they're not kicking her out for the tattoos. So she just gotta get the admissions process. So good enough grades. Where a nice long sleeved shirt and button up caller to the top. I think it'd be fine. I I hate to say this. I know you do I think a lot of this depends on where the school is. Yeah. Yeah. I can I would imagine my guess is south being all conservative is probably. Yeah. Like, they're gonna she's gonna have a hard time going like Medical College of South Carolina. This Brenac could be second happened. Right. But maybe where you at school in Portland. Yeah. Pretty hippy dippy. I would think they would have to consider. Yeah. Even U dub. Yeah. Oh, yeah. For sure hipsters central. It y you know. Yeah. Big city melting pot. Yeah. See I don't think he'd get in San Antonio. And I don't think Dallas Houston either, really. I just like. I remember the people who interviewed. You'll be like the people who did the interviewing cranky old white people. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, maybe visit some schools to see the students that are there. I mean, really the best people qualified to give advice on that or the current students. Or the recent grads? Because I it's wind has us. Not being qualified to answer question. Oh, never stops. Yeah. I just wanted to tell you just want to that. I know that. Like we're being for an initiative, we have no. Carey tell you something that blew my mind, and this is bragging on Andrea little soil. Jim. Remember this the rating score of the DAT. The rating score. Yeah. Like like what number? It's like at a thirty or whatever job remember that. What was the highest possible score? Yeah. I think like thirties the highest possible score. Yeah. Something like that. At least. That's what it is. What it was when I took it. I think it's kind of the same. Okay. Andrew got like a twenty eight holy shit. It's a high school I've ever heard while. So she had all the Texas schools like trying to give her money to go. She got scholarships. Wow. Which is like you just don't hear. No, not at all. I feel like tattoo faced possible on dental student here. Would need to like just nut the DOT just nut. It just like twenty six twenty seven. Because at that point like those with that raw data with that rod number it just has gotten so much about run numbers. Now at this point like to say things like your interview is important. They don't give two shits. It's a. Yeah. I if you don't reach a certain threshold of numbers, which is like whatever mathematics formula, they have of DAT an SAT score or I'm not SAT GPA from college didn't like your science GPA, those numbers plug in reach a certain level. It doesn't matter. If you're like Peyton Manning at your interview, you know, it just doesn't matter. Exactly. I don't know why Peyton Manning sacred interview. A weird like reference to Paul. I don't know. I love. Okay. So front of mine has expanded Joe shoes extremely Ted like head to toe. So what do you think this is a situation like literally head to toe? Well, like the tat like literally suited like a sleeve, and then just kept going like good sleeve that keeps going. Yeah. See the no one's going to know that if you're wearing normal clothes. Most. If you got your hands covered. Okay, or your hands are exposing. Yes. You could wear long sleeve t shirts under scraps be find their pants, obviously. Yeah. But I mean, you it's only through the admissions process. Once you're in did jank tops. Yeah. No, I feel like they're going to tell you you're going to have to wear sleeves. Let let them play play that card. I dare you hands chest and even small faced hats some dots. And I think another small tat somewhere to on her face teardrop in the corner of your eye. How good of a friend are you? I think they have a face tattoo. I'm not sure have you seen their lands on pretty if you had a face tattoo. I would know all about I think you might. Really? Some mystery. Like, I think maybe two do you think? What do you think the small dots? Because I mean, obviously like the teardrop, right? Like, we all know what that is. What are the dots? Yeah. Targets. I don't know. Soviet teardrop is like every person you kill. Baby. A dot is just like somebody maimed right injury. We'd have to be a certain level to qualify for the dot. Maybe she was a field hockey player, and that's like number of ACL. She took out on opposing players. Now, you can like the stamp on Snoopy's house for every sop with camel he shot down. He would stamp the. No, no. What are you talking about? You know, this World War One flying aces and then for every time they shoot someone down than they would. Yeah. The little thing on the side Slatter that Snoopy the same only in his movement is brain as he was going against the red baron. Well, I was going against the redbeard or was he the red bear. And then the pizza thing the red baron pizza, right? That's the thing. Yeah. Redbeard was a Nazi wasn't. He no. He was World War One before socialism was German guy. Yeah. Red baron German? That was the other side of the war, right? Yeah. Yeah. That's what Nazi pizzas. Yeah. Yeah. Why are we eating Nazi pizza's better than digiorno frigging Mussalini? They'll love child. It's true. Yeah. What is the deal with these fascists in their pizza? They like a good pizza cheese. Apparently, the red baron Manfred. Albrecht freer von Ariku often also known as the red baron. Yeah. I could see why. Fighter pilot during World War One. He was the ace of aces eighty air combat victories. But still we're eating pizza. Celebrate staff of celebrating one of the Kaiser's boys. Yeah. I think that's what we called it back. Then right. World War One. We're fighting the Kaiser, well, then why do we wanna Kaiser roll for our hoagie? It's true. That is true. Why German sympathizer things? I don't like it. I think so I don't trust them. How did we get up on that? I don't know. Small dots of the face. You think maybe this person I got I don't even want to say this. Yeah. You do. Don't hold me responsible for this. Of course, I will some people are lab techs, and so people are dentist. I see where you're going. I think I I hate to see it and like. I'm not saying that this is my final judgment. I'm just saying like I feel like face tattoo relegate you to the lab tech world. Well, certainly not going to inhibit you or hinder you to be in the lab world. No, I feel like that's sort of the next generation of lab guys. Right. Live people quite a few. Yeah. I don't know. I mean, I if it's just minor dots. Then I don't think it's going to relief factor in at all. I mean, if you've got an they said, it's not like, Mike Tyson thing. But still let me ask you this question. This isn't unanswerable question already. Is there a dentist in the United States that has face statue? What's your over under on that? Just. Odds-on maybe signs are like one native American on the reservation or some. I I don't know. I I was just say odd. Yes. I would say the odds, I know are like minus two fifty which basically that means when somebody's blindness to fit means you'd have to bet two hundred fifty dollars to win one hundred. Okay. So you're paying a big price fat. So the odds are not very good. It might even be like minus five hundred that no dentist, so it'd be the extreme favorite out of that question. No or yes. No is the heavy favorite. No, there's not a dentist in the country that has faced too. I mean, I guess define. I mean, we're talking just a dot on here there that's hard to notice because there could be out. We got one hundred fifty thousand there's gotta be two one. Do you want you back to your prosperity? And this is sort of like. Going against my thoughts. But okay, we had prospect that had these little dots. Tattooed on like they're like right by their team. Jay. Oh, and they were they were like two to Mark where the hinge axis was in. This was like a process residency thing. And like five or six of our process had these little tiny dots. Well, that were tattooed by the did you have you ever heard of this? Oh that sounds like a strong commitment to CR. It's a very strong commitment to CR you're really into. Wow. So I mean, this is the rumor that was going around my dental school class, and they all have these dots in the same spot. Can anybody out there any listeners, can you confirm or deny that this is a thing among all process? Because maybe that's the thing. Maybe when somebody asked about that tattoos. You just say like, oh, that's my Jackson smooth. Right. Right. And they'll be so fascinated to like for, you know, like for them to hear that, you know, what the word in Jackson's movement means because I've been practicing for fifteen years, and I still don't understand that shit. Yeah. It's it's just a religious like the jet is this just a fake religion. Yeah. That is true. Somebody says on here tattoos are not a protected class while there you go. So you most certainly can be denied if a job because you're tattoos and less the employer applies Israel differently different genders races or other protected classes. So you can't turn down an African American applicant because of tattoos, and then take a white applicant who has faced that too. But if you just say, hey, no face tattoos. Or if your tattoos hold a deeply religious significance, and you can prove it. But even then that's an uphill laws. It. Yeah. That's that's a tough one. Says here here's what you can't be discriminated on. When it comes to jobs title. It's Roman numerals V, I seven horrible with Roman numerals. Of the federal Civil Rights Act of nineteen sixty four prohibits employers from making job decisions based on protected characteristics, including race color, national origin, sex and religion, other federal laws prohibit discrimination based on disability age and genetic information, many state laws protected dish all characteristics such as marital status and sexual orientation more this is talking about employers. Does the same thing apply when it comes to school admittance? Yeah. It probably does. But I don't know. I would guess they're sort of looked upon in the same realm, right? It's really just the face thing. That's a problem here. Ten shoes anywhere else are no problem. Yeah. Just the face. Yeah. I think I just to think of it's just a couple of drops are dots or something. It's just not going to be a big deal. Now if you have Bill butterfly right in the middle your forehead, then. Yeah, that's probably gonna you'd better have bangs. At least for the interview. Yeah. That'd be nice to put it in an area where you're going to be able to. Cover it up with a good idea. Yes. So here I'm looking to something Kim face. Bo. In so kin-, Matic Facebook would Mark the hinge axis, and it would put them Mark. Like sort of just. Outside of the year. Where the hinge accesses, and I guess that they would Mark that spot. And then they would go get a little tiny tattoo there. So that they could always somehow get back into CR. Or have high guess had this reference point of their planes, the space bio, I don't really know. I don't really understand this. Yeah. That that's kin- Matic face. Bo. I like my Whip Mix. I don't understand all of these different points. It's just like what could parallel to horizon. Yeah. Exactly. We call it junk coys. That's good enough for me. That's right. It just becomes a fake everything else becomes a fake. Bo. Oh. I'm not into the kinetic Facebook technique is time consuming. So does generally limited to extensive prosthetics, particularly when a change in vertical. Dimension of inclusion is to be made a less precise precisely derived transfer within lead to unacceptable errors in compromised result. I think that's bullshit. I think it might be here's build everything. Horizontal or parallel to horizon, and then working out attempts skip the bite comfortable, and then you're off. Prospal? Are they are sorry processed least? They're not push through say true Jackson requires a hinge axis locator used to the fully just ball articulate patients used to be tattooed. So that the Facebook could be repeated this is a Cording to. Indian dental academy dot com. There you go. And here a patient is asked to open and close the mandible Centric initial movement of the stylus maybe arc shaped thus the status is adjusted until the tip rotates instead of ARCHE. This point identified as the hinge axis is tattooed on the skin. This is real this is real. So this is this is the answer when you're in an interview, and they're asking you about your face tattoos. You just tell them that is your hinge axes. If it happens to be in your forehead, you just say, yeah. That's your. Helper? My Jackson says Lance. I cannot help. Oh, you mean that tramp stamp on the back? Oh, yeah. That's my jacks. What that you on my forehead? Yeah. That's by hinge. Actress Jackson, buddy, we're helping this person. Are we I think we are? Okay. They're going to be so impressed. If this person knows about in Jackson status. Yeah. They're in for sure. Especially with the twenty eight. Yeah. Twenty eight say what if you could you could literally go in looking like both me. If post Malone got twain on the D, he's getting money to go. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Plenty of Dennis tavlin sleeves. I mean, I'm not saying it's a lot. But like, I know the Dabo notorious that guy of him. Yeah. How do you say his name Adama? I don't know the rest of it. Yeah. It's like no no tire. Antonio. There you go. He's fully sleeved. Really? Okay. And he's like a fellow in the economy of cosmetic dentistry, big on the photography and the. Yeah, he's doing fine just a face tattoo. So that now we have the answer that the three dots Jackson in Jackson's movement. We did Atlanta we help somebody. That's so we took seventy three shows was about damn time. Let's look at their posts you underscore DWI. Who they post a lot of medical gore? Oh. They posted in the suburb of Donald. Okay. So we're not gonna read anything from that. Now. That's a that's a bad idea. Some good posts. About students sleeping with teachers. Oh, a little Mary Kay Letourneau gone. Villi fool out. Why do I know again? Why do I know what I mean? I mean, I should because it's here, but you're over. That's there. Oh, yeah. It was in Tacoma. Wow. I the fact that still to this day. I remember Mary, Jane or a what was it married pay? Let's lead Toronto and villi fill out. And like, I literally don't know who I saw yesterday, right? One day the villi. Is going to be worth something? Oh, you think. I'm going to be on some sort of trivia show something. You'll break be big breaking Ken Jennings record on jeopardy and your pull out the village allow. Oh, God, Lance. This is the worst. Oh, no.

"I guess we're on so We're in unknown territory with this. This zoom gaylon shaking. He said he So can you all hear good? Great Child's attitude. Great Brian. All right so obviously is going to be a learning curve with this broadcast would do in. Olso just bad with as I'm going to do a presentation on the presentation on not knowing his most intimate Seems like that is something going going on for us All right now with the Kerr Corona virus. And we don't know what's GonNa Happen Ultimately Book. We have the strength to go through this in whatever way we do This people now from you're listening to so that was nice I will stop by reading the Cohen. Don't think I'm GONNA stick with Coa but it's a good starting point erasers things now after I've done. The presentation will open the of full questions answered dialogue. So it we go. Joe Shoes Jesus not knowing. His most intimate preface to the assembly profound talk of entering the principal derides three and Rennes the full. The Broadway of show on run seven vertically in eight horizontally suddenly opening your your mouth to speak decisively and lifting your foot to tread firmly. You should hang. You're traveling bag and bowl a break. Your staff tell me who is such a person main case tension must've Jeez oh asked Hogan where have you come from a pilgrimage aimlessly replied Hogan what is the matter of your pilgrimage has? Jeez oh I don't know replied Hogan not. Knowing is the most intimate remarked. Jeez oh that Hogan experienced great enlightenment. The appreciative reverse right now. Investigation repeat it is the same as before utterly free from minute. Obstacles won't comes to not no shawl to show long as long pruning and grafting according with high according with low each is even an content family Matter of abundance or thrift issues freely according to circumstances feels and lands excellent sportive once. Figo where they will the matter of thirty years. Pilgrimage Ecclesia transgression against one side. Grow so again. We're in unknown territory. This not knowing. We don't know how this is GonNa turn out but you know that's the basis of life it's like May Tolkien Usually what I do is I start full. Can I can receive feedback by seeing. You seen the people who around and then that dictates what what I say. What can what people are interested in? But in this case I can't really read much in the way of body language because you're a very small. I'm seeing about four of a met. An Eugene you drift next one will come in etc but this unknown is You know with the with the virus it It really strike into the coal. We've never been in this situation before My parents would tell me about the nineteen eighteen pandemic nineteen a lot of people died in that But I'm not dwelling on aspect of Of DASS the important thing is how we lived through this in one of the problems with The aspect of dwelling in not knowing Is the fact that quite often. We tried to late prejudice. No so this is how it was in the past. This is what I felt was true but again with each situation ultimately when he comes back to how how we how we live with faced wits this vast empty unknown in which anything can be written is not like his static in that way. Now that's how it is right now but things occur. I was watching Governor Andrew Cuomo on the TV. And I was. I was impressed. By the way that he's dealing with the pandemic New York The one of the things that he said immediately. We don't not we've not been in this situation. We don't know how these things are gonNA turn. But what's most important is important for each one of us to see that. What's most important is that we get through this together. -ociety we affect one another. We How how we act on a on a momentary basis how we follow the guidelines given to combat. This means a lot to everybody else around us. We really are in this together. And I've never a fell tennyson like this before in so You know please please feel my my feelings for for all you know. I hope to see they ended this the other the other end if we follow guidelines and we do the best that we possibly his greatest chances that occur so going into this Cohen. Most of the time in terms of spiritual practice we we have this sense of. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa progress in my practice. I hear it over and over. Better Camden Mind's going to com- Then people say I am I. Am I doing okay from the Outside? You know Practice which is fine. You know each of those does that. It's nice to get some outside feedback on it but ultimately comes down to this not knowing nobody has been you ever in this universe before this moment in time. Nobody's been blessed with your ingredients. You may not think of it as being the last you know. I mean some of sometimes I think success in I remember Again Perot she Who's my Inca teacher You know he would. He would tell me tension. Don't become a teacher. Zen Teacher he said because I didn't listen to me. He said that's my mother to don't do that thinking that my mother had more power but unfortunately that wasn't the but the thing the thing is with this is is the unknown the dealing with the unknown with with people just in general and then the unknown also of the development of each one of us. You know again is As human beings the unknown we enter into we find out. I remember with my daughter. Brothers and sisters. They always talking about enlightenment in the days. And you know people were saying well enlightened GonNa be like this and then I remember Joko who succeed from edge. Oko Back is pretty famous these days. I'd probably about ten years ago. She was very disappointed by enlightment. It didn't it didn't feel it didn't fit. What have rejection of enlightenment was so you know like For others they. They felt very satisfied for myself. I was very happy. Licensing was put on one side true while in that not level. You know the end of this Coombe Hogan who ends up being. The leader of a stack to Buddhism has an enlightening experience. But what is that? It becomes obvious so now I'm Jim. I'm jumping around a little bit When I first started practice mind was very much. Today's and Suzanne. I'd never met teaches had never met. Anyone told me how to meditate. But my mind wasn't as when I sat you know just like I'm doing now is not much difference into these seen through these eyes into newses smelling tasting touching experience in the world It would it would allow my mind to Seattle and I wouldn't be run so much. My own ideas notions beliefs. And even though it was really boring I can only sit for about three minutes. I was drawn to again. There was no end to this. Accent may be possibly the promise of the ended suffering all the feeling that that he's possible be returning home but it is unknown and the process really was from finding out this over and over a point after a couple of years practicing developed thoughts. Sort of war really thin and scared the hell enemy in our certain Aaron my stories just in reach it anymore you know is my discussions myself of what I was doing. Why was going No longer Reached that that grounded being under seeing now the vast entity unknown not knowing what you know whatever label you put on it then. Those fear arose dislike for each one of us in this situation again. The unknown the fear rises but then part of that is Being able to sit still in the midst of that fear in again this is applicable to was now and Really see the dynamics of fear for me I can. Maybe say. Two Dynamics is warm. Which is a to allow the fear to go into the realm of thought you know is going to turn out this way. It's GonNa be such in such a person now. Remember uh go. I'm GONNA go nuts with this. You know nothing. Drearily settled bombing. So that's that was allowing it to run. But now if you actually allow yourself to experience a comeback and use that energy to be really present to to whatever's going on then you see that that that fear doesn't have to go in that direction you see you can actually sit with it. Fear is a very strong energy. experiences Fully a deeply. And you can see that. It's basically the mind preparing to do something. That is difficult than one. Style is realized and Thea just the way of gathering the mind and then stand sitting still in the midst of whatever it is that you need to do in the news in the energy to get through. Whatever it is the you need to do so you have maybe two choices that now with the second one. The impressment is also includes. You'll your environment rather than the ideas. The earned one so mind. You know you begin to see the people around you because the energy is coming real to be to be really pressing. Now say this you know Basically from being in the LA riots. Not that I was participating in it. I didn't get any stuff I saw a lot of people. We stop the sentence still in in it and then you sing. How people are around and the Really feeling that's more that sensitive of commune itchy. Becoming into want. We're in this together and that's more important when that's fell than this then is more of a sense of of. Yeah we can go through this raw than I am. Isolated from the situation not fair you know basically wants his tame vast energy but once it is experienced in that way you use it in positive ways what can be done. What is needed here? What can be again is though we are not palace in the midst of this and then the other part of the unknown is a It should be realized that an I'm saying this for myself is I don't know for more than I know. That's just a fact you know there's there's a colon the Kids swigs Josue. Nansen where Joe Shoe Johnson it you know if you don't know it is the way. How do you know it's the way Nansen says the way doesn't belong to knowing not knowing k? And then he goes on and says more on that you know knowing this basically putting something over the top and not knowing can be blind consciousness so the the important thing here is is like if I am faced with something? It's very important with this. Not Knowing to allow that to function so let that cover the whole area and then receive information. Pieces of direct action can be put into place just in the same way now that they're finding out stuff wits With a corona virus that lend in the way that it operates and that that beginning to to fill in the gaps which will help with the treatment. But it's all coming in from that not knowing and obviously to is going to be different from person to person. The problem is with this. We start to put over assumptions over the top. It's going to be a certain way but there's no money saying that really is going to be this way the way that it is the way that we go through it now. One of the things that is essential in this. Cohen is the word. Attention is the first word in each of these columns in the in the book of Equanimity. And it is it is is so important. Because that's how we find out is by paying. Attention is just paying attention to whatever wherever weather's logical small allowing that to come to the surface and then that's how. Colin is worked with again Cohen in the sense of making uneven unevenness even being hall oneself merging with the situation. If it's a daily lifetime calling so I just really wanted to encourage you in this. This pot is if you sort of At home allow yourself some time to experience the unknown and befriended in one way or another. No if we go a little bit deeper into this column with the with Master Hogan he's the main figure even though it's Jeez oh who? Is the teacher in this in this process is the? He's so immersed in what he's doing the when he's asked he doesn't have a plan you know it doesn't even say well you know. I'm I'm here now but then goes off to San Diego and then I'm going to go over to Tijuana and then go over to New York and he probably knows that he probably knows where he's going. He's probably got these high tin airy sat but he's mine is so focused on what he's doing. The the teachers can recognize. This goes you know basically I guess I should read it so I don't make my own Cohen. He goes wedged. You come from now. People ask that Savelli easy question. You know And he goes I- pilgrimage aimlessly which is very pressing. A very present thing is not saying you know Manchester Long beachell old wherever you know he says. I will image aimlessly. The aimlessly is important. Because it doesn't matter if you have a name in life is you have to have that not knowing to be flexible enough to change the plans as they occur. Just like many of us have plans in life. You know like I planned to get a fifteen song. Set play the play of the day with a bunch of other people but that may not be possible. So what is that to be done? The main thing is being pressing see what occurs do the things that are necessary to achieve that but at the same time have that aspect of not knowing is see the quite often. We'll do a black hole white saying where it's I will say it. It won't to Kosovo that for. I won't do anything RAW. Save will occur an plan with everybody else in it. And then there'll be a lot of difficulties in that simply because it'll probably be something in between so the main the main thing with that is your PA pop in this and obviously this is this is Wa Hogan is doing is lost in the pilgrimage wherever he stands not that he's lost in the temple that he's in wherever he stands. It doesn't matter whatever he's doing. I won the aimlessly. Now the thing is is the twist so sophisticated? Nowadays is the many teachings. It sounds good. You know is like a cliche. I won the aimlessly three free as bud or whatever you WANNA put in that one. The aimlessly sounds good. Sounds Very Buddhist. Taoist along those lines also truth of it. Really the aim again. Is that if you want to practice the practice because now you ought to practice enlightenment that much you know that practice it now the shedding light on the place that you stand the thing that you will see. Alternately is again the way is not written. That is the unknown over and over and over. So you can see this. Even the window in Hogan statement to this point in time and then Jeez oh than goes What is the matter matter of? You'll pilgrimage and Hogan says I don't know now. Most of the time we hit that you know is I I hear is almost like the teenager. No that's not the kind of not knowing minore did. That's an abdication said application any response ability. You know in that in that way. I don't bother me. I'm fine being finest great and the same time is this. I don't know that's that's the bottom line. I don't know and that's beautiful from from that perspective again that he's just been shown to us right that I don't know now. Obviously this is. This is some thin as human beings so we can aspire to and the flip side of that. He's always remember is not knowing in situation. Means that then you got. The information is an empty field. That where you can bring in say prejudice you know when I say prejudice. I don't mean that in a negative sense. I mean prejudice in the sense of I've been in this situation before and it was like this soil bearing in mind as part of it shooting being also experiences another aspect of that would place in this over an unknown where many different things can come out and then the important thing is that in the finding out you know a lot of people when they come to to the center dome. They don't know the questions to ask is just like quite often is the The the so-called once feel the most dumb maybe the most most profound on some levels because they match many of the people. But it's the finding of those questions and then being able to articulate them and then seeing if that really feels right now feels ride than move all carry on if he doesn't really look at that because that's also important to refine one's instinct into ish because that ultimately won't steer you wrong again instinct and intuition a not well recorded you know. People say that but they tend to be pushed on one side because they're so intellectually driven. Now this is the second pa. Maybe maybe more than the SEC. Maybe said a full but our reliance on intellect in this is that there's such Dr to know and to know many different things that we forget and then to go into old ally that unknown rather than going yet. These things are known bull. Now what's important is to see these apply so they don't remain fixed as facts that that applied in one's life and see if they were all put on one side for later see when these things can occur but I hear it over and over. You know he's the one person say guess a degree own gets a PhD. Whatever then does does a degree that we start to self define ourselves rather than an openness then to learn an anyplace place anywhere in many ways you could say that occur in education system. Really the main thing is learning how to look so like for myself is As a teacher is I am learning from the students on the momentary basis emceeing the body language MC in. How how the person works. I'm seeing how they apply this to to live in situations how much Israel Song Ken. And there's an immersion in that but it all starts from that base of the annot remember when my my son. Nick was at an all anything from us to to about twelve. I would think had a work down. The things that worked for you know in my mind is easy. Now got it down and then like like that might work for a few days. Put that change. Change it and I think more in many ways. I think he was the one in control that you know. Because he's good. And is leaded bass amounts is like a psychologist whose practice on the patient. May you know and now he's sort of in unknown territory. I don't know how is independence thing is step in in that way but this unknown and being comfortable in the unknown allow it allowing it to be a motivator is so important again. That's applicable across the board in terms of the situation of the we stand it now I'll I'll look in the COA on a little bit more. Just to bring out some salient points in the in the written pots. And then we'll open it to some conversation things about half an hour or so is not bad for a toll and then we'll see if it works may most most of the preface in here is about naturally function the unknown in many ways. We don't know how to walk. We just do it and if we had to think about it it would be a problem. I find the when I when I do carpentry nowadays from doing something like join the. A Re requires a family in an intense amount of light preparation and knowledge basically and not done it for a while. I find the. I don't know if I can do this. You know and then what I what I tend to do is go just do it to stop and then usually things that then fall into lights again coming from the unknown these things come back in. You can imagine if we had to know all these things that we do. Life is the ahead to be solved full and things not in bonded. And that's the other PA again. Let these things be embedded so you know. A lot of this. is It goes suddenly opening your mouth to speak decisively lifting your foot to tried firmly. You should hang up traveling. Rovan ball break. Y'All staff tell me who is. Such a person may not screech. One of us doesn't mean that you have to go anywhere to to travel to the on pilgrimage. Life in itself is a pilgrimage again pilgrimage Asli races the value of our own way. So you know like people go to maca or so. My friends have been doing the The pilgrimage routes across Spain France in a certain beauty in doing that And adjoining woods ancient ways the old religious practitioners but that aspect to pilgrimage. The all the time we're finding out those new scenery in our lives. Confirm this on now is very important by. They say you don't need to go anyway. Dorgan said that but of course you know he went to. I don't know thousand miles or so to China to study. Each one of us has to do what we have to do. Is She in the to to bring our own mind? Ps to really experience this freedom within the unknown so Again without leaving your seat in your in your seats to gum for competition. Whatever but this is your pilgrimage don't underrate at one of the one of the things. The many people do nowadays is they demean the basic consciousness. No this doesn't have much value for. I'll fill it with these things. Just look at the wonder of battery died on the laptop will technical. Difficulty rebooting signed Different computer so I somewhat lost the the tried to this time. I think at this point. Let's let's try some interaction And then I can go on and you tangent seems like a good good place so technical difficulty so we can going on just the way we'll function as if people can raise their hand that should be depends on what kind of device you should be able to raise your hand feature. That will be able to see. Who's asking the question on on New Liam Liam Cost Saver Rim handwritten so high? Okay so I guess that one didn't work so any anyone will questions on this just scrolling through to see okay so I guess I need to try that okay. We're GONNA allow every onto themselves. So the zoom savvy amongst you. If you'd like to join the conversation club please. If one person speaks will let them have for flow with a question. I could for those of you if you go to participants at the bottom of your screen and click on it. Then there's a window will open and you can click on raise. Hand is a button that says rate and in and the host of the session can see. He's raised a hand gusting. Okay Rebecca Collins. Rebecca Harry on extension. I just want to thank you. Most of all this is needed and appreciated and amazing and who twenty years ago that we were able to do something like this. It's so good to see I know very much appreciated and I wanted to thank for the night meant as Weightman of shedding light on the place that you stay. It's it's a good reminder and I wonder if you could talk a little bit about doing that moment by moment. Yeah do it. That's the that's the main thing is don't share July elsewhere delusion basic means splitting the light so that's also important. How do you split ally is like As as much as I would like everything to be okay and possibly normal and if I think that than take 'em take away my attention from this place the shedding of light onto his flights when my mind is on this place than there's nothing entering amendment spoils The experience of this the world can come in you know and again is quite often. I will carry all around the dominate. Soon as I let let those go than the world can come in. Everything comes in in that way. So that's important Doggone putting dog and put it in a different way. He said practice realization It's not some other realization. It's this fact. I can see hear taste. Smell thing so practice this the thanking some bit more tricky putting on one side until the Senate Sensors come forward so I mean that's that's what I would say on it for now but don't worry too much about thought you know we give it way. Too much. Value is a beautiful thing. But you know again go come be for you kind of interest at night. I go to sleep and I'm usually not thinking might be dreaming sometimes but then I come out from nowhere and the Wilshire know so We get more technical typically eight but luckily some support. Is that enough of that? That question yes thank you. I do want to say from zoom experience that those participants who aren't actually speaking. It's best if you arm muted When others are speaking so that we don't need fear it's just got attention. Thank you great and so we got to use next. Okay Kerryon anx row. She are you welcome. Hi thanks everybody else keeps Jokai. And every and cou cou and all of you Mokoena were holding down on this It strikes me in practicing not knowing particularly this week that it takes a so much patience on my part to just be willing to say to stay in. Not knowing my impatience. Get in the way and I. That's the hardest. Some hardest part for me. Yeah yeah no I mean I agree with you but the thing is just make sure that not knowing this is not a `nother thing you know. He says the not knowing always that you know whether whether we like it. A novel in many ways have become very good at covering it up not allowing that through obviously Would be asked. Was You know by Various people to stay in which you know. Obviously that's what we need to do. The same is that they're also emphasizing light displacement activities. Lots of what the time to Binge. Watch movies which is good but at the same time. It's just make sure you have some slight destroy experience the unknown and then whatever arises that because one of the things we say about practicing anything is if you practice being present to in practice the unknown she becomes off. Amelia to the point where you know it. It's not it's not a thing it's an aspect of our own beer and we know where the other the other paths lead busy guest right k next person Ciro win. Maybe sorry blow hand here. We go I everybody hiking. There were no suiting up from being with our Songa digitally this morning so good. Thank you so much doing this. And we'll thankful attack is here to your staff and cogent remotely. Well they on. We brought solution down the mountain with us. You know last Sunday. They have have tried to stay with that. Of course the first thing we were hunted with was. Let's get a coffee and we pulled up starbucks in it was close the major disaster. We drove through the drive through a in his came out. It was a little bit of a shock. Just want to know. My father always accused me of rain. Were Games I just wanted to add an observation. Nine seventy nine of US coming together here in the middle of all of this knowing is certainly most intimate. I'm very grateful for that for the teachings and I think I'll just stop there. Thanks appreciate it. Russ Maria Rosa Maria in Kenya on here. Can you hear me yes I can? Can you hear me yes I've got? Thanks it's trek me when you save following the guidelines I've been trying to follow them. A in as much as possible with essential I go out in reflecting on ad in in Wanted to ask you. She could talk more about Satan ourselves in saving olders to save ourselves. And that's Kinda how an guidelines so you talked a little more on that I mean this many aspects to it I mean obviously his morale and Finish like this improved. The morale is. That's a that's a good guideline. We do what we can along those lines. I mean obviously amongst one another is the gift of now. The're not take taking care of people as best as best. We can obviously to take care of our own hygiene Benefits on those two in this in this respect I mean In many ways the things that improve my Morales Is contact with other people then also Making sure that I have appears in time to check in and in my own emotion likes and obviously spills it on to other people and obviously with the communication is refined out. What's going on and that helps in terms of when we have to go shopping and stuff light out in the guidelines state. They changed this important to you know. Try Try and Follow Johnson. Obviously question them and see the rationale behind two in the main. I think I've been some really good stuff in general from the Many media sources. I'M NOT SURE. Tham answering your question but you know it plays if I'm not taking from another angle. Yeah I guess it's more of I wanted to hear more your Taken to How we help others in in also having that were announced that or impact of trying to help others in also bring harm in. I guess that's just kind of it's kind of a tricky situation. You want to be out there too of surveys especially for healthcare providers. You're out there on the front lines healthy no of errors in so. That's that's where I think my mind lately. How yeah there is out there. Yeah I have a lot of appreciation for the people that You know now do not. Susan's doing that now. She says she could maybe say something if she wants to some point you know we've got We've gotTa have not knowing experts. He has upset experiences within Venice. But first responders people who can install tremendous appreciation for in that way. And obviously if we're called upon. We'll do what we can. I am ways the supportive of this a national international action 'cause The living in itself is the most important thing quality of that. I don't I don't know really what else to say on the thank you so much John next good morning everybody your me Okay yes. I can very warning okay. This has been good morning. This has to do more with something. That's come up or does the Cohen. And I've noticed that in here it can get a little dicey with adjectives. Lost my sense of tenderness misplaced it. never had it. I don't know but it's coming up for me lately that I I need to have more of a bit of tenderness when it comes to. Gosh I guess it would start with myself now that I really think about that and your than others so I was wondering if you could maybe a little bit because I think it's really needed right now especially the way that I see people acting at the stores and stuff like that and yeah but that's just kind of an outside issue. Yeah I remember that you know that they're not you if you want to be as vice influenced practice notice your chance. You increase the odds of that occurring in terms of living people learn from that mean. I've seen so many wonderful things. Not just even with driving is that people have been very careful in terms of drive in a knock stimulating pan-asian no like everything in it. In shops they I have seen the other stuff too but personally I don't really WanNa be like that so I don't think he'll practice now. I know I can you know but The practice of that we can detect you know. Obviously we can develop a society is more reflective of the attributes out. The more we do that the more saying the more it can be taken on. We don't always have to be drilled by the drama and Number story of of a lot of the show is that we say you know 'cause we tend to imprint as human beings. Maybe even consciously with that kind of thing. Would you try to take the bull by the horns and stop to practice? Those things that are important and you'll see does make a difference in in limit Those things can always spread meditation. You know it's It's unquantifiable in the account. Save this is what it doesn. As the results it works meant mentally emotionally physically like yoga clean and in that way morale all of these aspects are affected by. It doesn't work in away and it's the same kindness through positives. So if you don't think you tend you know your pricing much in the way attendances that. I. I don't think I'm tender. I don't think I'm compassionate. I don't think I'm wise but it is important for me to practice that much that I know of those things because you know the whole thing is open ended by this rollout do that because I know where the other side goes. I have those you know. I had the violence. I have own perfectly. Cognizant don't watch and especially in these in these times it doesn't mean you have to agree with everything whenever every body book you know obviously have someone who stand in when you see things on the outside no see he really wanted to give them all that much okay. It was more of. It was more of a Yankee located. Thanks yeah he's that you know is that to be practiced. Put it that way. It's not something that's going to come from elsewhere. You have okay thank you. Let's let's the end of the hands that are raised but we have allowed people to UN mute themselves so I see SACO sent go. Hello thanks see you my hat I just WANNA say hello. My Name's John Rosenthal. I'm sorry I tell you what it feels like to see you so just in. I was in Palm Springs three months in two thousand eleven and started practice with you and I know you memories of Yemen and now I got to another another mayes ice out monastery in Russia. That's been really really great about the theme. I sort of have a question cook. Yeah that say. Give Him my regards. I will So with with regard to not knowing I guess this is something that just never ends. It's not as if you know you were talking about not knowing then dealing with situations that come up the way they sort of coalesce seven if you're open the You get some understanding of what's happening but would suddenly Saying it's just that you're just living but it's a process that that was the question. The comment is that You know I'm trying to read the play and I can't get a hold of it. I like to hold a book. It's on back order. Which is I think. Interest at the play would be on back order at Amazon right now but the thing that I remember book that Sorta about not knowing that that the way things could go at any moment as they are now inevitable is going to happen next. There's no explanation anything where you are and you can either be bitter by about it or you can take the only other approach which is to try to be kind to each other. Yeah which I think is what I remember about the book. Yeah so yeah now obviously try try to remain positive you know like fifty fifty you live or you die you know so folks on the Living Pot because the other one for me at least the morale pie for start thinking about that you know Bay Hong Fifth Round. That pot really doesn't help morale but no there's living now in that's back to me is the it's the most and for how how do. I live now through this big Lib well through this ends of chance when things get easier and I can see that the joy an I think maybe not knowing that I'm afraid the problem has not knowing. I think that I'm afraid things are going to turn out a certain way. Yeah that's that's you know again is I want to. I want to stipulate certain things and I'm GonNa not no that's fine. I want my not knowing turn out in a certain high. It's like like contractual but again like when I when I was born. No announce older. Nobody gave me a contract and said life is going to be this way as something that I have to find out and work with did it by slamming austerity. Can you know But again is that the thing that's overlook knowing his anything can come out at x Keno and if you pay attention then you've got a lot more chance of of a of a good outcome coming coming out of this and You know for me is again is the if we face to difficulties than we develop character. You know whatever that is you know. And and so it becomes easier to deal with these things when they occur. It's just an aspect of practice. You do. These things practice the unknown over over Nova rather than coming from a position of prejudice. I I know this. I know what it's Lyonel the outcome since like. This looks like something. What is it so more smaller aspect of? What is this and then you you. You've got a lot of tools and you can bring in and take the direction can be benefit south before Ramji so the the not knowing is just full is just full of outcomes basical and if that can be that you become a lot more flexible intend to dealing with things but I agree with you know man. I would like a outcomes to be a certain way but you know I don't spend them over whether time looking back I go yes. This'll be nice. And this is the way to aim towards it but I'll be flexible and save. It can be taken in a way that is beneficial to myself people around me so it's okay if it doesn't come out liberal you say is but that's again that's a value judgment is going to turn out the way turns out and I just know the if it's good or is good or bad dependent you know depending on what what occurs is the I have the strength to go through that and if I pray for anything I pray for the strength to go through. No don't look at me as an expert. You're an expert to each. One of us is as tremendous skills that have been embodied in this important levels out embodiments. Kim. Born and key event is deb. Deb Has a new herself. Okay dabid muted yourself. Then you have something. I can't see okay. I don't know I'm not good at the technology is that's the part. I don't know a lot of I don't know I didn't even see an option sore. My Hands Okay. Vote. Now you're on. Don't touch that is term sounds I see Liam Kia Saco you look you look tat succumb okay all right yeah WanNa yeah so annotations. I'm a retired nurse but I did do infection control for a while. So that is something. There's a bunch of that that I do know about this whole thing but you know outcomes how is GonNA show up? I don't know but the principal or the name and exactly what that Cohen saying about Just taking whatever's in front of you and I love that description you know very intimate in that is what I feel. 'cause IF I don't know something I stop and this is the benefit of the meditation. I get into that meditative state. D'oeuvres lists US on my senses. What is in front of me? What is the next indicated? Step yet But then then. I'm more affected Because actually I not doing a whole lot different because I go hiking. I did a three hour hike. This morning I hike every day I live alone. I work in the yard so I'm already isolated a lot but there are people around. I have some friends who are trying to get home to Wales. They can't things have been closed down. Flights cancel so that frustration too and I live in a community of older people. And you know just my heart goes out to them and it was The other day this is she a little levity Unicord Wednesay and I was going around hopping around outside places and enter the golfers and just bringing some laughter because brings thank immune. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah I speak. I try to donate blood. Because there's a shortage then. They were closed by there. So you know and actually. I start to feel powerless. When I get feel powerless I try to get into some action in the helps me get out of that but then there really is that practice. What would what were you saying before about? Yeah we grow from these things. We find out we what we can do. And there's that confidence gained. That's and Was Anna who's saying about the impatience at I have. I have a a trip scheduled to Scotland in. May Not sure if I'm going oh not I would like to new to now so I could the head thing plan ahead whether to cancel. Not but now this is a really good lesson for me to sit back and not get into that. I'm comes cancel ago and you go. I will do everything in my power.

Local Hour: Whale Watching

"A friday. Am I right boys? Jor. I feel like everybody is just in New York, and we're just sitting here and we, you know, we got to go to New York today. You guys excited. I don't like New York. Why? That's a I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that right before we're yeah. You're allowed to say it's just too busy for me. There's too much going on. If you many people, do you think that a lot of the people that are coming to our event in New York are just New Yorkers or people travelling in for this? Because I was trying to like, you know, not that we're preparing too much. But I was just trying to have some things in my holster ready to dish out at the show, and I was thinking, if I should have it be New York Centric things. What does that mean? You know, like small talk just your, you haven't prepared anything, as far as just like, well, there's, there's we're following Liga script almost. No, it's not a script. It's more of like a shell of things we're going to do, but there's no script. Exactly of things we're going to say so I just, you know, in case there's dead air and I needed to jump in and fill if there's dead air or in trouble and you're feeling we're right. Yeah, I know. But I just thought you know, if we all have a little something prepared just in case Jimmy, like an example of something that you have prepared that didn't make the cut just so I have an idea because there's a long flight will not along fly, but there's like a three hour flight, right? That I could be I didn't realize that I had to be more prepared. Right. Well, okay. I'll take you down last night. I'm laying in bed, and I'm having this thought of, like, what am I going to say? If. Everyone falls over. And it's just me standing onstage by myself, and I would, and I was falls over in what sense you know, just, you know, there's some sort of medical emergency, where everyone yes work. I would hope that they just canceled the show and the people would be understanding that everyone is sick and has collapsed on stage and it's not just all right continue. Chris and what I would do in that spot is say, wow. Everyone's heard here. Just like the ankles ch- is everyone on the heard, he know that like they have like injuries all over. And then we call the ambulance, okay? Gave yourself. Trying to think of some way to, to make fun of the Yankees for being super injured. Right. Maybe being maybe making an announcement during the show. Oh, look the Yankees third baseman just is out for tonight's game. He has hurt feelings. That's not bad. Little jokes that I could go with our, these jokes, making fun of New York. Are they pro New York because men not get the crowd to turn on? That's why I was asking the question. See, I think that joke is pretty safe because even Yankee fan can be like you know what? He's right. We are pretty injured right now. It was funny. If one of our players was injured with hurt feelings. Yeah. That's I mean, just kind of like prepare, I just want to because I know ROY probably is doing. None of them. Are you going to juggle her? Oh, I already told my wife that tomorrow. She's probably when, when we're doing our pre show things you might have to run out and give me some oranges. Orange to I preferred juggling things oranges. Why don't you get tennis bowl? You could get anything your New York. There's stuff everywhere. Why would you get orange? True. But I did oranges during the halftime show. So it's kind of become my thing juggling oranges. Yeah. Got it. But I'm excited for New York. Man, I know we're all kind of stress because it's people think we don't have anything planned, but we do actually have stuff planned, and it's been it's been stressful. Just this whole thing. So I'm excited for the show, but I'm also. So if I'm being honest excited to get it over with, as good point. Yeah. The Cain train pulled into the station last night. Yeah. And not making any more stops. So how does this happen? How does the team go from being the hottest team in in hockey to getting swept the Bruins just that good? Yup. Yup. Yep. Yep. They got the Bruins are in this whole thing, it looks like it, so it's going to be Bruins. And what's the other series sharks in the blues playing tonight? This is going to gain four two shocks up to one. Okay. My Cup final prediction was blues and Bruins, but the way the officials are acting right now is looks like it's going to be destroyed. So I'm going to move on our the officials acting well the officials throughout the entire playoffs have given the shocks few advantages in the previous game as a hand pass that wasn't called the led to the game winning goal. Someone caught the puck. No goal. No. Oh, it would off of wanna play is gloves. And then wonder stocks took it pass it off to or costs who scored and overtime game ended in because ham passes are not reviewable the referee's got together. They talked about it, and he just get it off. But it was unintentional. Right. All have it will all hang pass his technically unintentional, unless you actually trying to catch it. You know, drop it down in psych taken away or whatever, but yeah, it seemed to be unintentional has there been any news or we just waiting for the end of the season before will, you know, this news will come up is are the Panthers going to get all these guys from the Columbus blue jackets? The goalie. And what Bosnian Noor? Is it their best score? Just one of their good scores. It's one of good scores. Is there been any news on that, and we're just kind of waiting for the end of the season boy, he's been talking lately, both the both talking, but the last comments been hearing me was Panthers half? No fans who really you know warming himself to the fans down here. I see I think, to just build and drama, wasn't that a new segment where people called in and ask you fun question. Yeah. Out the mill probably we're calling it in Chris give. Visitors seductive. Yeah, we have in Chris to music or questions, with Chris quick, Chris. What do you like better? We'll figure it out. We're working it out for you guys. Feel on this Friday. I'm feeling good. Alright. Yeah. Yeah, we'll we'll spring, we'll go back and forth because I got some Osuna things I want to get to Marcela Zona, okay we'll go back and forth. Play a little ping pong music helps with the question is does guys getting anything? I mean you have a computer that it's full of you're the only one access. Music. All right. Let's take a call. Let's go out the line to. Let's go to Joel. What's up Joel? You doing this Friday doing. All right man Brock in with you on a Friday. That's right. So who's excited for New York we already covered this. We are you excited for New York. Joel, where do you live? I live in Maine, and I go to New York a few times a year, and I love the city. So I'm not sure why some you guys are a little, you know, not excitable going there, will you be there this weekend. I will unfortunately not be there. I was just there a few months ago when going back just as a little difficult right now. How's how's main, what's main like main is cold and dreary really good food in the cities. But outside of that little Desa with us some good whale-watching in Maine canyon, you can do good whale watching so a lot of good aquatic stuff there. Well, this is why you think New York is good. Because main sounds boring as hell. That's probably very good point. There's more people in a square foot of New York than there is in the entire state. So that's probably pretty accurate. Really? That's not true. That's. You know that. Yeah, what a civil with on nine million nine million people in New York, and about a million people in the state of Maine. So do you have any New York jokes that Chris can work the crowd with if everyone passes out on stage? Right. Nokes I really liked to joke about the Yankees. I mean, that's kind of the sweet spot right there. They have no other sports teams really be proud of. So while they have the Anki so you kinda hit where hurts, another thing. I was thinking of doing is maybe I won't point getting real crazy. I'd do my Adam gates like you can't see on the radio right now. But right now, I'm looking at Billy like the way Adam gates did a crazy offers you know, behind you. If you have really behind you with a fishing pole holding a taco up to recreate the video, I think he might have something Joel. I'm angela? Go ROY have you either have you guys ever been will watching? Well watching it isn't under you say that. No. Like I have no interest in. I have not been. It's one of the cooler things I've done on a vacation. I did when I was probably twelve or thirteen I went up to the northeast like doing Lind may in that area. And we went well, watching I'm telling you. I've never done something on a vacation, that was as have you ever been zip lining? Yeah. That seems like more fun than we'll have you eighteen. Granted. I have been on ATV before I'm telling you, you're thinking, that's more of the things you just said is more like fun. Like I'm moving at a faster speed. But I'm telling you, well, watching, maybe we just got really lucky because the people that were on the boat were telling us during this. Well, watching that you guys got so lucky like Mike went few months back and he saw like one fin. So like he didn't have a good experience. I the boat, the people on the boat that do this for a living, we're like you. You see we saw breaching everywhere there was a bunch of Wales popping up next to our boat. I must have seen twenty-five Wales and like six or seven breaches. I'm telling you so quite beloved Wales ever since that you'll have you ever been zip lining? I have not been at blinding, but it's something on the bucket was for sure. Have you? What else is on the bucket list? There's a lot of things. I mean kinda wanna go and export as many countries as possible, and maybe someday, make it I'm Jay Wakefield, and, you know, enjoy all the bugai's, create, I love, Jay Wakefield, but that is a sad bucket list. How many countries have you been through so far? Probably thirteen. Really? What are they? Dominican Republic Mexico, Germany ice, wind a few others here and there. Joel. I'm digging this conversation. But I do wanna get 'cause I liked your question. They add so you can stay line and chat with us. But I want you to throw out your question real fast. Go ahead. Okay. My question is, would you rather eat a hamburger that is shaped like a hotdog or eating hot dog? That is shaped like a hamburger. This is easy for me. If you heard me earlier in the week, I'm not a big hot dog guy. So I would like a hamburger that's shaped like a hot dog. Billy. So it would be basically like. Yeah. It's just like beef like a long stick of almost like a taco. Yeah. The beef Doug. Yeah. Maybe they just, you know, ground beef this in the Patty be in the form of a hotdog, basically. And then your hot dog ABI kind of flat and circular around. They still does at seven eleven really. Yeah. Really? Yeah. How do you know this ROY because I've been in seven and eleven. Why didn't you tell us sooner you know you know maxed? What was your what you guys go to? I haven't got one eight Joe. Would you do? Yeah I go with the hamburger because of the hot dog. Just do it for me as much. So I would definitely just go with the overall flavor and the how would look in the appearance wouldn't really matter because pace matters more and food. Well, if you're saying that look like all of it doesn't matter, why'd you come up with this question. So wait. No. You just to be clear you'd go with the hamburger shape like a hotdog, not the hamburger hot dogs hamburgers shaped like a hot dog. And I came up with the question because this was a point of contention between me and my friends the other day because people said that just the hot dog shaped hamburger is just too weird to get over. And I know where you got thought I agree with that. How did that end with you and your friends who gets to Lunga terms or? No. I mean we're not really speaking anymore. This kind of the, the tipping point, you should take them on a scale watching vote. Right. And then you got. We have we have plenty of opportunities. Maybe I'll try to scare them straight with zip line awesome. That would be both on. What was your guy both in a day, what you guys go to slurpy or you guys a slurpee at seven eleven because a slurry combined her, I've done slurpee is years, but I used to do. Slurpee is a lot in high school. A differently combined sloop result. Joel, joel. And think I've ever had a sore p from seven eleven. Joe have you been you've been a thirteen countries? But you never had a slurpee are seven elevens big in Maine, seven elevens are not big in Maine. We have we have variations of that smaller gas stations and stuff called swat puppies. So I'm guessing kind of better name, so K or anything like that. It's a slush puppy, a couple of circle ks but yes, what puppies, basically just kinda hard to explain. It's more like a snow cone kind of consistent. Feel like the blank puppy is an underutilized nickname, like I feel like a good running back in the NFL. We could call him a rush puppy hush puppy in a rush puppy. So when that someone who's really. Right. Pretty good caller. I'm digging Jim about five gotta Joe of urban to Miami or no. I haven't I haven't been to Florida in a few years. I went there just overnight before I got onto a cruise ship probably through on a years ago, I've always wanted to go back. Where'd you go on your cruise? We went over toward the Bahamas. I believe I was in my young teens. I don't know exactly which I once we were at, but it was one of those ones where they dock for a little bit. And you go out and explore the town, get back on the ship. So a weekend cruise like a week. It was a I think about a week or so on a school vacation. All right. Cool will next time you're Miami. Hit us up. Let's hang feel like me and you have would good friendship, building here. Yeah. And I've actually sent in a water you're like so maybe someday, I'll come in really weighing. Some of those outright, you. I have read with everything almost. Oh, I've been in the tournament probably fifteen times. And most of the Andy Reid you have or from the wow, are you the fingers waggling or no, no? On the civil war reenactor on the HOA association urinate, sick wildly. Yep. So if you had definitely contributor if someone said to you, what are your top three of your fifteen is like that one's gotta be in there. What are your other to the civil war, reenactments when my favorites I was also the one of the Dan Patrick looks like she was in the diet coke commercial when transport into a magical world and I'm the one where Adam silver looks like the generic proctology on e cover of a magazine. So those are both probably I've ever once look at you in. I feel like we can't verify this, but I'm going to take your word trust them. I believe him. Hey at the top of my head. I know him. So. Yeah. I mean you couldn't name the thirteen countries you've been to. We're not going to get into that name four. Yeah. You don't want to give all of those kind of redundant after a while, because most of them are tropical. The time someone that lives in Maine, not I know we were kind of wrapping this up. What teams do you root for? Well, I'm kind of an anomaly. I never started rooting for the New England teams 'cause I figure if I'm in Maine, I'm kind of a free agent since we don't really have our teams. So I am a forty Niners in waco's fan, which sounds kind of, like bandwagon, rush. But I've stuck through him through these hard years. So I think I've earned my stripes. Yeah. All right. Well, Joe thanks for calling. I feel like we talked to celebrity today. Nice. I have a good weekend. All right. When we come back, I got some things to say about Marcelo Zona stugatz here.

And that's what I'm going to try to do. One percent. I'm trying here man. This is the thought show with the stugatz on the ticket today show. Should be fun. We got stugatz running the show today. Dan won't be doing radio today. So it's kinda like a you know, we have a substitute teacher. I don't know about you guys. That's how I feel whenever Dan's not doing radio. So stugatz will be running the show. We're going to mean in studio. Go Joe's in town on a talk bachelor with them. At some point. Can you can I get you guys in on the bachelor? I know ROY I was thinking about this last night, because I watched the bachelor for the first time ever on Monday. And I'm kind of in so yeah sorry bachelorette. And I think it'd be funny. I know you right now, 'cause I already knew when I came into, and I said, ROY, can I get you to watch the bachelor, you're going to say what? No, right. So I think it would be funny if you just force yourself next week on Monday to watch it, you can hate watch it. You can like half bleep watch it the whole time I didn't wanna say ask half as watch it. He said it twice and then come in the next day and give your thoughts. I think it'd be funny for you to just actually force yourself to watch it, and then come in and give thoughts on it. You know you can you do it, though. Billy, we'll can I get you to watch it? Here's the thing. I don't have a Monday show right now. So this seems like the perfect time for me to watch a Monday show. But I have too many shows that I'm watching. Yeah, that illegal, I'm going back. And I'm like binge-watching. So I don't have time for the bachelorette right now. And the bachelorette is too mainstream for me. Like I feel like it's not really. It's cleaned up. Like it's a very PG version of a dating show. Like I liked the want then TV the MTV dating shows are great. And I used to think like wow MTV like must find their people from just like a different pool of people for their dating shows. And then like last season, they started integrating into ex on the beach like people that were on the bachelor. And I realize no, no, the people on the bachelor that come on the MTV shows are just as crazy as the MTV people. They just don't appear to be crazy on the bachelor the bachelorette because they kind of like, oh, this is wholesome. It's just thirty guys all trying to fall in love within a span of two weeks, or whatever it is with one person and then they're going to get engaged after two weeks and they're going to fall in love and live, happily ever after we're on MTV. It's like now. We're just looking at hookup and be faint is it's funny you mention dating shows, on MTV because last night, I watched I f sewed of double shot at low. How is it having any and Pauly D from the jersey shore doing a dating show where? It's just them to in a house, and they only bring ten women. So they're trying to get this thing over with quick. This is like a loose loose loose. Spinoff of Teela tequila shot. Really I watched it, and I'm gonna probably continue watching it because I'm a sucker for anything. Jersey shore, but it's really bad. Why is it just exactly what you said? But to the like exaggerated over the top, you watch your first episode or the first, I've felt I, I, I went back and on demand and watch the defer steps. But do you believe here's the thing about that show? Do you believe that Vinnie and Polly, dear looking for a wife on MTV dating show? That's what I mean. It's so ridiculous. So point of it's just you know how to have a show now, sometimes on the jersey shore that go back to the house with ten women. Yeah, that, yeah, this is. But these women also don't wanna marry Polly, dear Vinnie. Right. I mean, maybe some of them were like I don't wanna marry but really on the bachelor everyone's they're for the right reasons. No. That's what I'm saying. And they make it seem like they are right on the MTV dating shows. It's like no interested in down. I love it, though. Please just. Both of you watched the bachelor this week, more likely to watch the Pauly D show than the bachelor at telling you, man. I was never into the bachelorette long, too, isn't it? It's two hours every week, I believe, so God, I'm telling just give it a chance. Maybe not I don't think you're going to anyways, Marcello Zona yesterday Sampson says on the show that because Sampson Osuna just changed agents. So we asked Samson yesterday about, you know what can he get on the open market? And whatever happened with the deal that you guys offered him Samson revealed during the during the interview yesterday that they offered Marcello Zuma a contract, and he turned it down because his agent would the time with Scott bores did not like his client signing extensions while they were still under contract. So he since moved to the cardinals and now has switched agents because I guess he has free agency coming up, right? And he has some sort of a lingering shoulder issue that I think people are saying, hey, you should have maybe taken this deal with the Marlins because of your shoulder. Join saying. Right. And that was the person that was on the show yesterday. Right. But my point. What is he and then, Dan pinned him down and said, how much did you offer him? And he said between twenty and thirty million which that's I know he wasn't the player that yellow that's like half of what they gave yelich. I think yellow Scott like forty nine yeah, it seems like if it would have been even like a five year deal have been six million a year, and it would have been low, 'cause I'm pretty sure he's making more than that in arbitration years that I just didn't that didn't even hit me yesterday. During the show I was listening back. And I heard him say twenty or thirty million, and I'm thinking I would never have accepted that deal. Zona. It's interesting because he said that it was life changing money and he'd be set for life. What do you think the number is of money that would you'd be set for life for 'cause I obviously never gonna make thirty million dollars right doing anything? So obviously, I'd be set for life. You're saying, well, like right now, if you said, if you just gave me two million dollars like not tax, you're giving me two million to put my Bank. I feel like I'd be good. I'm not saying I wouldn't work anymore, but that would be enough money to be good. Marceau's Oona this year's making twelve million dollars twelve and a quarter. So it would have been almost like half of whether he got that through arbitration. Right. Yeah. That's what I mean. Like he got more in arbitration than he would have if he signed an extension. I don't understand unless that was for two years. Maybe two years. Thirty million they extension that they offered him. But then he would have already been a free. I just didn't understand how Samson was sitting here saying that they, he should have definitely taken that deal when it was not a good deal to begin with Matt's getting married tomorrow, go to. Yeah. Matt. On line six. You're getting married tomorrow. Who went out for the okay? Hi, matt. Matt you on the air. Math forgot that he was good. Hello. Oh, hey, I thought we were going to hear something good. I was. Yeah. I mean I was kissing my fiance. So my wedding is tomorrow. And I was just looking for some advice on how to deal with the rehearsal today. And how to not have either of us stressing the heck out. If you had any insight on that, where are you getting married? Matt. Really affect 'cause I would've gone to New York tomorrow, if it wasn't by wedding, you're really upset. Don't tell you. I'm upset that it happened to be the same day. Oh, I already told her mad. I think you need to get your priorities. In order. Mike. It's nice to see that, but I feel like your wedding is obviously more important than this event, of course. But just when I heard the day of coming of the New York trip I was upset. I was like darn I wish it was any other day. All right. Well, there's only two people that are gone through that, that are here and it's not me, so I don't have any advice on how he can get through the rehearsal, or any of that stuff. I have some advice here. Okay. I my rehearsal dinner. I was feeling feeling really good head all family in town. A lot of friends, and I'm not gonna lie got a little too drunk and my rehearsal. Well, not actually at the rehearsal dinner afterwards. I'm close to having an intervention for you. Why? I just feel like this happens a lot like I'm kind of worried tomorrow this may happen. If you start drinking before the event when do one of I ever been overly drunk. I just feel like you get a lot of food poisoning that might not be food poisoning. I don't know how to do this. What do you mean? Hagel was Chris people have bad. Hey, have food poisoning like once or twice in their life? And you've had to like six or seven times. So I'm concerned seven signed more going on. I feel like we should probably check the numbers on that. I I've definitely after my, what's it called my bachelor party. I missed the day of work because of a hangover that was for sure. Over. All right. Well, let's not get caught up in this. So what's your advice for him to get through it? My advice is that don't drink too much afterwards because you're going to be around you friends, you're going to be having a good time and you gotta wake up for that wedding. I actually I didn't have a hangover the day my wedding but I was just I got a little too much. Did you did you get drunk at your wedding now because you don't know? I think that's a thing that people say because you're moving around too much. I didn't. I've been to weddings were like the bride and groom get like really drunk and I kind of think, like I don't think I'd want to be like super drunk day of my wedding. I wasn't able and not that I was purposely, not trying to it's just because you're, you're constantly being pulled in different directions, it if you get drunk at your wedding, your did you eat at your wedding also denied not eat as much as I wanted to everyone was saying the food, and I'd like barely food Matt. What are people eating at your reception? Tomorrow. It's chicken and beef. And I'm expecting to eat like to two s- before we have to get up and start doing other stuff. Did you get your groomsmen presence because I'm trying to I'm also getting married. I'm trying to figure out the situation with Alec what I should do. Honestly, we did get them gifts. But it's a lot of like it's the socks the tie and tie bar for what they have to wear, and then it's like a bottle of liquor a flask a cigar, you know, it's a lot of acid with the wedding. Anyway, where's this wedding? Actually, the farm that she grew up on. And they moved out when she was six turned into a wedding venue, north of Boston. That's cool. Where's your where's your originally? I just wanted to increase on your little bit. Out the end the on Twitter. I don't want everyone everyone's gonna gifts, but I guess you don't want free gifts from strangers. Sure the not dot com slash Clare, and Matt, I think I was easy. Oh, wow. All right. Well guys, please don't go to their wedding and bugger them. But, I guess, LAN vice I was truly looking for was head of make sure she doesn't go insane. You could have between today and tomorrow morning before the wedding dress clear and mad as from wedding in two thousand fifteen. So my experience with my experience in this. You should be good today and tomorrow, you should be good because most of the craziness is done, I would hope and everything is planned, so in my on my wedding day and the day before my wife was fine. She was not too crazy. Do you guys have a day off planner? It's Matt, I guess we do, but it's Honey, phone dot com. No, it's not dot com slash Matt. The letter n Claire. So you went from not wanting to, you know, making sure we have the. Elliot free gifts. What am I? That doesn't work either. I'm sure we'll figure it out. Don't worry. All right. Matt adulation happy. Happy wedding tomorrow. Thank you. I love where we've reached with the Marlins where this must be a really boring baseball season. Because now I see Sports Illustrated was writing an article about how bad the Marlins have been Tim Kerchuns looking up random stats about how bad the Marlins is, and people are just bored with baseball, I guess, and they're just like, oh, we got the most interesting thing is how terrible the Marlins are. So here's this stat. Tim Kirch in tweeted out the Marlins are the first team in major league history to have no more than ten victories. And at least nine shutout losses in their first forty one games of the season confirmed by allies sports. Yeah. Yes. Many times a day. Do you think Tim perch and 'cause allies t-that that stuff like that? And he's got just like them on speed dial. Like he he's got a guy. He it's not like he's calling the front desk. And he's like I need something looked up. He's got to do that. He just no. He told us that he has a guy that is one of his closest friends man. I wanna be friends with that guy. But Tim coaches you think I always wonder this like the people at Elias? How do they look up things? Do they just have like a Google for their like an inner Google that they could just type in something? And then boom it pops up yet. Imagine they have their own search systems for their records or they have, like if they're looking up something in the last twenty years, they take twenty guys and they're like you got this year. You got this year. And we all come together. No. I think it's more efficient than that, right? Yeah. That's how it lies is running things as having title. People there in all right? You get nineteen Ninety-six. I want access to allies in inner ghoul where I can just type in any baseball sentence. And boom pops up just get a guy at Elias, and then they can do for you. I just want I like ESPN has. Stats and info department. You're always ask them for these used them a couple of times on things. But I feel like when I go to them with something third like who's this guy? Get you need to butter him up. Like that's why I always represented. I'm from the Dan Le Batard show, even though Dan's never asked me for any kind of stat I just act like it's coming from, Dan, like Dan would really like to know this stat. I one PM you do stuff when it's like stats and info. And it's Chris look this up, you reach out to that awesome. I've done it probably twice in since we've been here. But yes, I have a guy. No, I do. That'd be funny, if it was that guy. Anthony again had him as my stack. Had him as my donlevatar. Can't you know? What's that music? I'm not sure. Like what they're smaller to God's England. Cooking. Sure. Busies. Show with stugatz on the ticket. Oh, what an exciting day. It is here for us at lebatardshow. We are hitting the road. The lebatardshow is hitting the road. We are going to New York everyone here is really excited. Mike is already up there. He's setting up. He's taken names. He's talking to people. I don't know why I'm talking like this. I can see him. Hey, mike. What's up? Hey, setting up and taking name. Yeah. Man, you are doing both. You are crossing your TS dotting, your lower case Jay's U R. T C B. And man. I've had that line. Ready to go for about three weeks? And I finally got to use it. So thank you. What a glorious week. It's been. I am so tired. I was an essay, even though I, I don't wanna see you sound tired, but you do. Yeah, it's been a whirlwind, I started the week in Boston where it was forty degrees, which is sub optimal not the greatest thing in the world wasn't really prepared for it didn't check the weather before I left the Boston. So I wasn't dressed for forty degree weather. It was raining, the entire time had a wonderful week with Chelsea now. I'm out here in New York setting up for the scene. I'm super oh yeah. Not, not a lady now not aside piece named Chelsea, Chelsea football club. The soccer team. It was a wonderful event, raised four million dollars for charity loss, or second best player due to a horrible turf. So it was a wonderful, wonderful experience. You lose. I didn't even say Ruben Loftus cheek you tore his achilles. At a second young youth academy said that was supposed to replace Eden hazard towards a ruptured his achilles. So he's out for like next year to what did he do to cheek? No. His name is Reuben. Lofton's hyphen cheek and hyphen isn't a part. There's a dash in the middle of Loftus cheek. It's compound thing, but I haven't really been able to listen to the show outside it yesterday. So how's the week on for you guys? Are you? Guys excited for lebatardshow in friends live at the Gramercy theatre the show's coming together quite nicely. I'm really excited. I was I was working out with them in the first segment. Some of the jokes I'm working on in case you know, I'm just in case of panic in case everyone falls, Chris came up with a scenario where everyone's fainted on the stage show hasn't stopped. It's continued and he needs to carry the show though. He wrote jokes that say, oh, yeah. You have jokes. My job too. Well, they of course. Of course, I'm gonna juggle, but at my, my opener is just doing crazy is, and like doing my gaze impression I'm doing right now. Okay visual. That's the opener. And then if that doesn't go over well, or after I do that. And I'm going to try to work in because a lot of the Yankees are injured right now. You knew that, you know injuries one of the anti game today, actually. Wow. Well, you're not gonna see anybody's there, right fielder. Just got hurt with hurt feelings. He's now on the I L to that was a joke because he's his feeling anyways. I got things planned. So I got things played just the case, you know, case they need game. I'm here. It's game of thrones night at Yankee Stadium. I'm actually going to the Yankee game juju Gotti. Wow. Yeah. I know I'm going to pick up that name. I just from jelly so excited. Yeah. I'm so excited for this experience. But apparently there's going to be a bunch of costs play at Yankee Stadium. It's, it's going to be a real circus getting in and around town. You guys doing any New York Centric things with your time in the Big Apple I got a good a good ready for dinner tonight, since getting in and around six thirty. So a little late dinner. Nothing really planned outside of that going to hang with my friends you guys in New York. Maybe but that's really cool. You're going to the Inca game with with juju. It's game of third night. So they're going to have the lights on. Man. I'm just full a lot of stuff. Ready? Got so many things ROY what do you got bland? I haven't really thought about it. I've read, we'll probably go to restaurant or something, you know, for the shell like what things you got, like, what if what if something happens and all of a sudden it's just ROY onstage. What are you gonna do? Who's gonna stand there and I'm going to look at a single roles in. All right. And rolls. No. So we'll have music, but it as far as you can get Lou Rawls. Okay. As far as today's show, Mike. What do you got planned up? There is any cool, people are going to be joining us. Yeah. Well, I spoke to Pablo and my friend, Katie, and Katie Nolan's gonna stop by Pablo's, go stop by. I'm going to try to pull anybody. I can into these does because today is a sort of laboratory and friends appetizer, for the event, we have a lot of friends that are down in Miami that are going to help us out with the show today. So I wanna roundtable of voices Chris, I've been watching clips over the last few days on Libertad read it, and one of the things that makes me laugh most for whatever reason you're timing, it really frustrates you, and you were than anybody, like, cut people off and the best part of watching on television and seeing how frustrated you get with yourself. You're the faces that you make you often bang your head against microphone, you haven't cursed yet. The camera hasn't caught it yet but you should be more mindful of it, because it is it is absolutely a running thing now. Well, let's just I, I often get excited when I have something to say, and you're right. I do need to work on not stepping on people, but a lot of times it. Stan Gundy, we can't see him. Yes, it does always end up being me. I've done it with you, actually a couple of times in this segment. But yes, I am Billy, I get frustrated. Then you look over a billion. He's cackling at me because I know you're going through like I've been there, and I just I feel your frustration and I can't help but smile that's the underrated part of the Chris reactions. It seeing how how much Billy gets a rise outta the whole thing. Billy, what are you doing in the Big Apple? I don't know. I don't know. I mean, I imagine Saturday's pretty much booked the whole Saturday. And then I don't know, sightsee my fiancee's never been there before. So whatever she wants to do. Yeah. Like Times Square. I know we're going there Philly. It's a little overrated all time square thing. Thank you payin. Chris not. I mean my, my saying something crazy right here. It's a circus. It's just the president's tone presidents in town. And I didn't take that into account on the traffic like the entire air force is here at south seaport, the secret service. I couldn't get out of the lift and traffic was so bad. But you couldn't get out of the lift, because there was secret service everywhere, apparently the president's only trav- traveling in New York at peak traffic times. So everyone here is up in arms and frustrated ROY I went to a Boston. Bruins last night, or really you said it credit to you a couple of weeks ago. You said it feels like a Boston Bruins copier. Yeah. Yeah. And I said they were gonna play the blues as well. And. Oh man. The officiating slanted towards the sharks, so it might be a sharks prunes the final that should be fun. The Bruins swept the Carolina Hurricanes, which was the team that I guess, this show sort of adopted what's the series like in the Western Conference with the blues and San Jose. It's two one sharks. And if Joe Thornton goes to the Cup final to play his old team, and that's going to be pretty emotional, probably a hell of a story line. Are you guys nervous for the show tomorrow? I wouldn't say nervous but definitely a little uncertain. I feel like once we get there tomorrow, and we do our little walk through. I feel like we're going to feel better about it. I got a check from Lorenzo that said, if you have a trenchcoat, bring it. Yeah. Lorenzo with was renting soon Lorenzo's always clutch with the last second logistical challenges. But why would he think I have a trenchcoat? I mean, a little Miami, you don't know you, you seem like a big trenchcoat guy. So do you go? Joe go to have a great voice booming today. I don't know if the microphones are up or something, but, like your voice is just like so powerful. A second ago. You know what I tried this morning? I've never been a big granola guy, obviously. I mean, you don't get to be a big fat person by eating a bunch of granola yogurt. But I tried one of those yogurt bowls with the granola mixed in this morning, and I gotta tell you, it started my day off and a glorious note, really Kroger. Seems off brand for Goja. It extremely give a pep in your step Billy. So right, though, you could definitely do some via work. Yeah. How do you do that? I don't talk to. I don't know. That's the thing. I always wonder and I see a lot of people doing that stuff and quite frankly, a lot of the ads an Instagram on people's stories. And I'm like how do people get approached about that? Like I could be a dumb person slinging tummy tea and my Instagram story giving me the five hundred dollars host. What would you do that, like what's your dream? What would be the product that you would push with your voice? What would I push with my voice? What would be the dream? That's a good question. Go joe. What, what is the dream? And also, that's an a per- like a perfectly appropriate level of journey for me, like, don't dream big. But you can sell arby's beef and cheddar sandwiches in your Instagram story. You can sell doughnut crazy in west Hartford, Connecticut in your Instagram story, like I don't dream too big. All right. You need to practice though. If it's going to be arby's. You have to say, we have the means so just say, blah, blah, blah, something about art. Yeah. Then you just end it with that. The current arby's voice though, is so strong to me. That's the thing. Do I want to challenge that thrown you need to go? Pick something else. Yeah. You can be what the RB voice is for arby's at another company. I gotta tell you. That's the real key. I've found to scamming free stuff off people is you can't go for established brands. You've got to go for the Instagram or the Twitter account that's got like a thousand followers. So when you come in with the re tweet, it's like, oh, man. This person they're kind of important. Let's send him stuff. I've taught you. I'm glad you brought this up because you seem to have gotten on the hash tag gifted by Dita's roster. And I wanna know how that happened because you seem to get awesome shoes. And obviously, you're super famous, but did they just approach you, did they send you a pair of shoes? And now they just always send you shoes like how does that work? So this is actually a super sore subject, and Mike. Ryan knows my pain in this end because I am still on the pay for play model like I am paying for all the shoes. None of them are free. What I have been Mike? Grind. And I are on a nonstop quest to get someone. I'm just going to come out and say their names goad up start sending shoes. This is getting ridiculous. We tag in post all the time, Mike the frustration levels high because there are certain, I'm not going to name them. Okay. I'm going to name them when I see Randy Scott gets free shoes for heedless and anes using hashtag, gifted by Dita's. It frustrates me to no end. Oh at are you wear east maker? Hold on the mothership. Mothership. He is on sports center on ESPN news. But correctly rainy, Scott listened to me. It's this sneakers on wearing right now are free, and they're Adidas sneakers, you wear that, that you have on your feet right now. Did you get those afraid? No, these are Metallica vans. Yeah, but you didn't get gifted by because of your ESPN thing the shoes you're wearing right now. We're gifted by seven ninety two ticket, we need to get on the gifted by having to me though. I mean you have been. You've tweeted this go Joe. So, like you just pretending and hoping that they think you're part of this campaign, and then they send you stuff. Yes. In a word. I this is low as I have stooped in a while of really trying to beg borrow and steal my way into this community of influencers. And it is not going. Well, I am spending way too much money on shoes. I look in my closet, and I'm disgusted by many face. God that stares back at me in the form of my wall of shoe containers gotten out of hand. You need to have like a blog or something so that people think like, oh, we need to send them shoes because he reviews shoes. And that's what we do. So make like a go. Joe shoes something. Right. And then they'll just start sending you shoes. And then you just kind of have four or five months, where you'd disappear in the middle of, oh, we must need to send a more shoes, and then you start reviewing shoes. Again, I have a friend who does that. I mean that should be shocked to know one. Yeah, but I have a friend that does that and he gets a lot of free stuff Billy's. Right. What will we name this blog go? Jo's blog. I don't know because you're right. You have to present yourself, as a guy who is as a person who was in the know. Right. And if they step if, if he gives you or she gives you their seal of approval sales will skyrocket, but he is in the no he's just paying for all that. He knows about. But I think Billy hit on the real key in this. You've got to create demand like you've got a deci- think going off the grid for a while the real key. Once you get them hooked is like, oh, no. I've got a ghost. I'm like crazy ex and make them come back wanting more. Yes. In the know with go, Joe. Ooh. No one else, just get goosebumps than no gentle than show, the no Joe dot com. The no Joe, yes. We really have argon. We really have come full circle because this is where go Joe was born I have to explain to people all the time that you guys created the only nickname I've ever had in my life. So no, Joe seems like appropriate build off at do you like this nickname? Or are you just kind of like I can't do anything about it at this point? I actually love it. They really I never had an name. I never had a nickname growing up and so something that's even remotely different. And it stuck like I have bosses. Call me go. Joe everyone around the building at ESPN. It's it's stock, and I still have people that send me clips from that hand sanitizer company named Gojko all the time. Right. Roy is a nickname, right bells? We call them bells. Well, you call me bills. Yes, we call Chris back. Chris little on the. Adeli what your nickname? It's Billy with Ghirma. That's my action, isn't Bill, your nickname that? Yeah. Yeah. Nickname. And Mike is Mike. Ever had a what's his name's Michael's? What's mike? But Mike, have you ever had like a nickname? Yeah. In high school people. Call me pony. What go on pony lose tell? Land. I guess it's not really that great of a story. I you know, the many clothes manufacturer pony. Yeah. Okay. I used to wear a bunch of pony. Branded clothes in highschool. And there's Mike is a common name. There was a bunch of Mike. So I was pony Mike and then it just got short into pony and. I'm so called pony by segment of my friends. I don't know why pony alone isn't name was an for me pony, Mike that sells. And we bring I want to kind of make a comeback on pony. Mike. It just feels right. I wanna get gifted by pony. Can we make that happen? Ring Oni back and see in the background as we're opening up all of this pony, wear and all the Adidas wear that we're now going to accumulate. You have the song pony playing in the background, and now we've really locked it, and that's why I thought you were going with the nickname was, you were that guy that pony on and all the sudden you just couldn't be controlled. I mean I certainly embrace this song. I love genuine pony. It's a touch tunes classic. I go into a bar. You're more than likely hearing pony on the touch tunes. The one place where we actually have made friends and get gifted stuff is minor league baseball sends his hat all the time, and they sent us another box of hats today, we have about eight billion. Minor league baseball hats in the studio. It's out of control. What size hat are you? There's no chance seven and a half because that's all they send second five eighths. And you head twins. Big guys. You can you can squeeze into a seven and five. Eight some of them run larger than the others. Yeah. Like I got a haircut, so seven and a half kind slides on, and they're all different hat, sizes aren't really accurate like sometimes they're a little bigger, sometimes they're a little smaller, you know, want you get first dibs of this hat draft go, Joe. And if you can fit into any of these years, let's, why do we need the exact seven and a half seven and five that hat size issues? Be one two three four five up to wherever. However many their views is dealing six in this, like, I don't need the exact measurements. Just the smallest hatch should be sized one, the largest hatch should be sized twelve or whatever the hell it is. Thank you. You're welcome. Simple simplify as you've been fighting for a while, then. No. But it played. I want in on now I will go to battle with Chris, Cody on this one, we're gonna make hat sizing way simpler stopover complicating hat sizes, send the Dan lebatardshow more minor league baseball hats, because they clearly don't have enough size seven or no. No. That's not what you're actually size by dead. Wow. All we're gonna like once once a week, we had a Marlins won in their appropriate. That. You got you excited. We are hitting the road. Lebatardshow is hitting the road may my travel plans last night. Oh, good. I get it seven fourteen. Oh, no LaGuardia.

It's podcast my name is jamie and i'm your host before we get started into today's episode. Just wanted to introduce you to what you are going to be listening to this episode features. A one on one interview with sir. She ronin who appears in the upcoming film called ammonites and that interview is conducted by cat combs and our second segment. We talk about election. Twenty twenty. It's a hot topic and we're excited to talk about our new president. President biden two are also excited to talk about the fact that trump is no longer in office so sit back relax and enjoy the second segment election twenty twenty is hosted by yours truly ryan and angelica hope you enjoy. Hey cat i research show. This cat from black girl nerds hi. I'm good at such a pleasure to speak with you this morning. Thank you for the time so amanite. I absolutely love this film. And i'm curious. What attracted you to the role of charlotte and well. There's very little about the real life charlotte online but she. She did exist on. She was very involved in the world of paleontology. Actually and then. I think one of the things that i i started to learn about her on on what i wanted to incorporate into air sort of imagine version of par was the she was. She was a real supporter of thailand. Almost like a patron for somebody had this really wonderful ability to i suppose as most women hut to then to one side and allow another to to really kinda shine and new see hurry off love joy and not with with mary and her for her but i think also because of the respect that she starts to have for the that mary does that. She's kind of no involved in so you know she gets to this really wonderful kind of act kinda quietly impaired an confident place in our south but she starts off in this very depressive state when we need sharon she's been through a personal tragedy. She's lost a child. Her marriage is very distant. And i'm on communication on all of that and And i hadn't really played anyone who had been through anything like that before and and also even if a silly just you know the fact that i have to wear corsets and pretty. Dresses have bring listen my hair and things like that like even though i've known her period films i'm i'm never that garl- so that was that was new territory for me to to be to start out as someone who really does kinda follow the rules and and you know has really played her part of woman tight society. That's expected of our lifestyle. That's expected of her her her gender and her background install so and yes so that there is. There were points when i was still playing her stage. That were really quite for straightened for make. All i wanted to do was pull on a jumper on. Take my under skirts. But i couldn't. It's great and you know you mentioned you know. I feel like this is not a girlie movie. But it's definitely female driven from just the the amount of cast in the film the themes and i wondering what's it like to be part of a small cast but such a strong female film I mean i you know i love that. I've been lucky. Just this sort of landscape changing so much over the last few years that i've been in a lot of films that had like a lotta ladies in them and so that has become pretty normal for me from from brooklyn onwards and i've been surrounded by our parts of group of loads of loads of women and on it's fantastic because the donald atmosphere that brings Onset is just. It's brilliant to to be around you know and and yet this is kind of no difference. I mean k. I had Net on all over the years at a different events we'd like interviewed each are very intense experiences. They actually ever filmed anything together. And so so we can. We knew what we were ourselves in four by. Welcome at each other and you know i was. I was very excited to get to do this with our in. Imagine imagine you're a fan before you know getting to work with her in before meeting her. Did she teach you anything while on set. And she taught me a submission. We had started gnashing on the women and she likes nez while she taught me the stitches and and she's a great cook so we she's swaps a few recipes with me things like that. I mean you know in terms of action laypeople last get apple nobody. Nobody really does that. Like he That is kind of the brilliant thing about being on a phone are working on a player or even sure it's the same for like musicians and things like that where age does kind of go the window and there's definitely there always should be a report for experience on you know people have a lot more experience than you. Everyone claimed it becomes a cage when they're making a film so there isn't ever really that sense of light. Let me sit you down and tell you a few things. I think you sort of you learn you learn so much from these people by just kind of observing the and haywire have. They are with with crew more than anything. I think that's when you can am really pick up some either good or bad habits when you see who asked actors are with. You know the runner the onset. Pa or something like that. So i've been very lucky and for the most part works with Actress that have been very respectful towards everyone. Kate was no different. You know and you know one of the things. I think We'll stick with audiences. Is that big love scene in the film. And i'm curious what measures or you know. Thoughts were taken into onto set for that scene. Well we. We did debate two weeks of rehearsals before we started. The sheep am amd for the most part that that was just myself on canaan francis in a room and talking through everything radi on Pretty extensive conversations about you know the significant mom said the take place in the movie and obviously m one or two sex scenes Which are very much part of their kind of progression in their relationship and so we need to map 'em where they were at that point when when not happened when those zan's place and how they change from one sex in the next you know how much more confident the women call in how much more vulnerable they can be second time round. We just we just talk through it. All radiant decided what we wanted to do when francis was really wonderful Aloun kate night to take the reins in terms of the choreography in on the technical that were involved in these sections. So kate in. I would literally get our now box ago. Okay step one. You'll put your hand on my shoulder to all your neck. Can we went through a really great way for us to because we both think not way where it's like okay we can. We can see the trajectory of of this saying them amri practices just like dance really and then brought that onset and everybody knew what we were doing than you know. We've both done sex scenes in the past. Were very like protective of one. Another and we had almost entirely female commerce department which did make think that more than anything made a massive difference and to the atmosphere on set so it was. It was a great experience. We actually. We did one of them on my birthday. So we have had little Beforehand at onset. Great great great birthday present for me at great You know what you mentioned. Director francis lee. And you know he's also the writer. And what did he bring to the film during production. That's all his own. That's all his own Am i mean francis. As i'm sure you now did. God's own country which was so sort of am significance on and kind of late really beautifully shocking for allow people and and so i can keep has a very clear idea of like what his status now and he really brought out onto onto aminat sam. You know he. He spent a lot of time with us. Either on the phone or in person before we actually made the movie so the couple of months beforehand. I would speak to him almost every week. And we'd be on the phone. I you know three or four hours at a time. Just most of the time not even talking about the movie but just talking about ourselves ready and typical typical filmmakers Yeah and he was. He was very good at giving time to an ostrich get to know one another and unfailing like we could could talk on o anything and so yes so i really appreciated him down and i. I think i have time for one more question. So is there anything that you learned about yourself after making the scum or they're part of your character that really stuck with you. I mean i think one of the things that i i love the stone on about this relationship between the two of them is that it kind of shows. It shows relationship with warts and all and the frustration. That can come with being someone that you being with someone that you really love and unhealthy amazing. That is scary. It can be in who you need to adjust and adapt. And and you now when you have two people that are willing to do that. It's fantastic bringing bang. And i think that's always. I think that's very very important for us to see more relationships like not unscreened. That aren't like fairytale. Perfect have their have their issues in have their They're overcome together by these people working working at work with one another and and really care visit relationships author end. So and that's what i really appreciate about about what the stone conveys i guess. Yeah thank you. that's great. It's been a pleasure speaking with you. And best of luck with the film.

Great discussion. i. You know what i'm so rescue. Now it's been so long since i've done this. I'm excited to tell you guys along with anjelica and ryan about the state of our country right. Now there's a huge election. That just happened where we finally got the results that we've been looking for and you know we're gonna talk about the fact that we got a new president and things and Yeah let's listeners dive into this conversation. Angelica ryan thanks for joining me in this discussion today and Let's pop it off other of us back. Oh but gosh what's gonna happen. You bet it's been eighty four years. Titanic it's funny. Is this whole election. Just starting i mean it. It's exhausting for me personally. Because i've been involved with this election since the primaries so i was a volunteer for bernie sanders campaign. I was a texter I helped with some foam banking. I did some volunteer events. So i've kind of been in the throes of this for the last year and a half so. I'm glad that this is finally over but It's it's good that we've reached a conclusion where we can actually move past a president. That is no longer fascist. President that advocate hate crimes or support. Hager president that doesn't believe in client. Climate climate science bear with me guys. I literally just woke up. So that's why. I'm like a little rusty with my words And and just all of these whole host of other issues. That's wrong with donald trump and even though biden wasn't my candidate i'm i did vote for him and i'm glad that he is going to be our new president going forward because he's a heck of a lot better than donald trump so i finally breathe. A of relief. Completely agree with you. It's funny as my died from smoke. Bipartisan household so my mom's a democrat new dad's a republican and for whatever reason harmony has always existed in our home And i live in delaware so joe's from our home state. He's a him and his family are are just like our family here. So there's such a big part of life so for me. Seeing that was just really touching. I was really happy Bill for For bernie this primary season. But i did vote for him in sixteen So either why. I'm just glad it's not detrimental. Like i could not operate in them like lower gods leave kids another four years of this lease or whatever i gotta do so i'm just happy. This is over. Yes i agree with. Yeah echo all both you guys in election fatigue definitely sitting in sitting in for me. 'cause that was the thing going on and just everybody just looking at the app and like just the headlines like what is he gonna do next so i am so like i'm like thank you. God i was the same way not four more years. It is outside. can't do it. It was just getting worse and like watching the debates and stuff and we you start bringing in the the hate groups. You're just like it. Can't you already knew this thing with just the here come out his mouth and you see it again and again. I'm like i just. I can't take it. I can't do like four more years. So that was the best news ever and people were celebrate. Celebrities gone crazy on twitter and instagram. And i didn't get to see his whole his whole speech. But i gotta see little parts in new. Just honor the whole but go ahead jamie. Where are you know. It's funny when you mentioned people celebrating. Because they showed the people in new york city and also you know how country really but new york city especially seeing out in the streets marching and will in central park like sitting having picnics and just like really celebrating its money. 'cause i lived in new york city in two thousand eight when obama got elected and that was kind of a big deal because he's our first black president right and there wasn't nearly as much fanfare in the streets of new york as there was with this biden win so it was just engineering the dichotomy between the responses of people then to now. But you gotta think you know people were people are really excited and also just relieved like you said ryan we don't have to endure four more years of trump. We don't have to endure or years of a man that is not even taking this deadly pandemic that has killed over a quarter million americans Slee so that is something to celebrate that we've actually got a team in place now with a biden and harris that's willing to take on the corona virus seriously and like i've even read through their plan like you know what their plan of action is and what they intend to do on day one and they're not playing like they really Plan to attack this So it's it's just really exciting to see and also it's just a relief rather to see that they are going to do things that's gonna benefit the wellness and the quality of life of of americans. At least that's that is that is my hope you know. I am local senecal when it comes to biden and and you know neoliberals in general. But i hope that you know that they actually do the things that they are telling the american people that they plan to do her. I feel like his platform has been truce. So i feel like he's going to give us as much as he can. Yeah for the next four years. I don't i don't know if he does tweet or if he does post on instagram. Or if he does speak. I can probably trust about ninety five percent of what he's saying versus this president words the nothing but lies now. He's still he's still tweeting right now. Saying they're you know he had legal ballads. The we're still in the election from the big city. Machines corrupt talking smack about philly talking smack about detroit very heavy. Black popular cities amazon. Keep carrying like soir. Yeah the dog was as terrible. Go ahead right now. you're fine. I was just gonna say yeah. He has a lot of thing. That's coming up to as you hear a lot of people saying okay. Well he has two months and you know because you thinking about what he did in four years but it's just like two months somebody that acts like a five year old and you're like okay. Are you just gonna be like you should do or you just going get. You're going keep making this harder buffets booking. I've noticed like twitter and a really trying to cut down on the stuff. He's putting out which i love that. They're they're fighting. Look you keep using our platform. Nikki couldn't stuff out there like we gotta stop this. So i'm just i'm hoping like you know. Obviously he's not going to change certain steps in the constitution like he thinks he is because like he's they're very very much as a kid that's just gonna keep throwing stuff out Until he can't stop but it just makes you nervous because he has more months the world be you know other countries looking at us like y y. You know what's going on. You hoping they're not laughing because it's just like why can it just be a peaceful transition. But he's going to be very interesting to see what happens. It was funny. One of the tweets came from the mayor of paris. And she said america's back yeah upper other nations. Like not to sound too like nationalist or whatever but yeah yeah. America is the greatest country in the world to a lot of countries like they do to us For you know when it comes to our economy when it comes to our politics and they're seeing what's happening now with the american people making the decision to get trump out And who knows like some of these right wing politicians that came into power the same time that donald trump did probably some of them are shaking in their boots you know. Oh yeah with. Boris johnson coming into power And brazil i forgot the name of the leader there brazil bolsonaro i think but like some of these like right wing leaders that came into power. It's like okay. Are we going to be next. So it's just very interesting to see Some of the the leader's responses and tweeting very much immediately congratulatory to Biden's when once it was officially announced through mainstream media because yeah they they really do look to our politics to see you know. Okay if america's doing things this way we gotta check to see how things are going to pan out on our end so yeah. It was a world celebration. I mean i. I have friends all over the world. There glue- glued to the tv. This last week it was something that we're all holding our breath waiting for the ads and finally came and like the bells ringing in paris or fireworks lauded I think everyone is very much happy. Her we that this president was voted out. And now you can go back to peace a sense of peace and even even watching this speech joe speech. I was extra missile. God it's so great to have complete zone right when jesus. Yeah empathetic and actually yeah. Yeah yeah and to me like you know when trump speaks it's like tremendous big just elementary words and joe biden is a stutterer so the fact that he's ten times more eloquent and wall slogan in this idiot had office. It's it's just nice. I was like oh nice. Yeah yeah yep it was a nice pitch wasn't yelling at you. I was like what fresher here he called for. Ps because I grew up in a household where my dad's he. He switched parties. Madonna's a republican my entire childhood into my love. My mom's always been a democrat. My dad's black. My mom's from puerto rico. So i always grew up with duality with different cultures. So the idea of republicans and democrats being enemies never really sat well as me because my dad's a republican and for a time i tend to align with having kind of grew. It's my own as an adult in which artists as well so for me. It's not a matter different parties. That's not an issue for me. It's like who yards a person and your ideals on your eye ideology and what you believe that that's where having issue when if you're imposing your beliefs and other people rather than just coming together you know as a people which i think. That's joe's this is what he's trying to do is because we are divided nation. Like i did not imagine that it would take this long to get so resolution at in big trouble gets this. Many people were tired of him but at least how our country was on his side. It's good to see the jones like. Hey let's put that message aside. Let's wolf forward together. Yeah i mean. I think when it comes to the republican party. It's definitely changed over the years. And i remember growing up. I always grew up even before. I was eligible to vote. I remember the michael dukakis and george bush election and as a kid in school. We had like our little fake ballots and we would pick who we wanted. And i picked michael dukakis because he was a democrat and i just identified with that party better and over the years though. The republican party has obviously. They're not really in favor of the working class. They put themselves out there as a party. That represents working class people are that are for working class people but by that term they mean white people white working class When really working class mostly makes up of people of color so and then also. The republican party has spiraled into trumpism. So then you've got these. Like you know conspiracy theorist and cunanan that are you know now saying oh. The election is rigged and all of these like crazy things that are just completely untrue. They don't believe that the corona viruses real they don't believe in climate change like just all of these ridiculous things that is very harmful to our country and has literally resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Because if you don't believe in this pandemic being railed then yeah you're going to be susceptible to get in corona virus so like the in my opinion. The republican party has turned from being this neo. Conservative party to you know trumpism and it's unfortunate because that that's a lot of where the division lives lies and it's not only a division within that party but it's an even further division between the republican party and the democratic party so that's an trump has definitely been instrumental in that like i think that was his whole mo to getting people to support him as let's further divide this country so that way i can get all of these people on my side and completely alienate these people because at least i know i have their loyalty. And they're going to back me no matter what and it and it kinda worked because when you think about it like this election should not have been this close now yeah yeah biden should have won by a landslide but it it was a very tight race and that says a lot about trumpism and the culture. He's created a so. Yeah it's it's a pretty sad history of how the the part i it could be done. What's that s sharia. I was just in a hope. I'm hoping it could be a. I'm sorry i'm hoping it will can be undone to a degree. Like there was a tweet that was running around saying now. Go back to normal racism. I mean only. Yeah i mean. Just people were a lot more subtle about their their racist beliefs than racist ideology and now with their more brazen with this current president so now they can probably just like go back into the bushes. You have your little meetings at home. You don't have to like that that's not right. That's not okay me more to say out loud. I mean it's wrong regardless. But i just thought that was funny like yes to settle racism. I can take that sad thing though is not to be all doom doom and gloom here. But i think trumpism is here to stay. I think there's gonna be people that's always going to Double down on their beliefs when it comes to. What trump was advocating for which is white nationalism white supremacy. And all of that stuff you're still going to have You know the steve. Bannon's of the world and steve miller's of the world that think the white nationalism is something that should be a part of our mainstream politics so i mean even though trump is gone and yet it would be very naive to think that in two thousand twenty four. There's not going to be another version of trump if not himself or his kids That's going to run on. The republican ticket is pretty much. Say see his kids. They were also out of pocket. This past week they were tweeting right along with be at that. And it's funny. 'cause i mean actions flippantly in general but you know. I'm jenny more of a cnn. Because they're mainstream is just easy to digest. What they're saying. And like jake tapper innocent super. In late they kept calling their spawning trump and his spawn and cooper caller flailing turtle. I enjoyed the shave this past week. Yeah yeah it was. It was some levity. Because this is i mean you said jamie that you've been involved in the election and volunteering and your weather. Taxers people waking me up at eight pm tax. It'd be this for your average american. You know as plugged into politics as i'd like to keeping an eye on this election especially this past week it was. Oh my gosh. I was up until two. I am every morning. Just watching the carol. And i'm like what is taking so long like move numbers move out of boston by the endless like literally. Because i haven't been in sleeping. I stay up until to go to sleep in the morning. The numbers are still saying now. We're like a weekend so the saturday was such a nice day worker. I hope my hope is this with 'cause you brought up like cnn. And the the anchors and stuff that networks. I hope that there's a a responsibility that an accountability with these networks cnn msnbc that they completely ignore or suppress coverage of donald trump. And his post. Life post-presidency life and focus on what's going on with current events and with biden. Because i feel like in some respects mainstream media had a little bit of a hand in helping get trump elected. They gave him a lot of airtime and You know truth be told. I know that a lot of these networks. Their bottom line is all about money and rating so and trump. Is you know he's entertaining like the character. In spite of the terrible you know human being that he is. He is an entertaining personality. And that's probably the reason why he has such a loyal farrell fan base. But i hope that these networks are a little bit more responsible and how they cover the news because when people are are consistently inundated with personality or you know rhetoric about either a topic or person you know or whatever. They're slowly kinda getting brainwashed. If you will and i just don't like the way. Cnn and msnbc handled covering trump in two thousand sixteen when he was running. Because i barely heard stuff about hillary and trump all day every day and now they're like oh he's so terrible to our country. Oh you know. They're saying all of these things in criticizing him. When didn't you guys kind of have a hand in helping him get elected. You know what i'm saying. So i hope that this time around that they just don't talk about trump and they focus on the issues at hand and Sorry i'm ranting for too long. But that's how i get with politics and i hope that in this new presidency that we invite more progressive voices so more far-left voices people that are on the bernie. Aoc wing of the party to be punts and talk about things that the democratic party aren't doing rather than having people like rick santorum punch through the screen. Yeah let's talk about it. Oh what's like i. I wanna listen to republicans. I'll go on fox news. I don't need to hear. Rick santorum talk about how you know the opposition to the party. I rather hear that from a perspective of a leftist voice. So that's what i that's my hope for. You know like rick has the place to a degree. 'cause it's good to see both sides but he was like come on man he just kept in so many ways. Defending trump g. No he's dead ass wrong. Do just bear cult the partner. They all defend a witty. I mean mitt romney. This morning was on cnn. And i was watching him. And he wouldn't answer. Jake tapper those interviewing him. He wouldn't answer. Jake tapper interview about him. Not voting for trump So and mitt. Romney has kind of been a little bit. Outspoken against trump. But you know he he still kinda saying well you know the votes do need to be counted like him. Yeah has so. They're still kind of like telling the line and it's just like there's no republican out there that's just willing to actually be logical with all of like no and then like i just love seeing all around the country this reactions especially looking philly mayor. Kenney he's tore off his mass he could say like big boy pants. He needs to just accept reality. At this point concede and let the rest of the country move on. That's how i'm feeling. Please go back to your your tower or stay up there and never come back down. But i cannot wait on taking the day off on january twentieth so i could just tune in to the inauguration. I- cow ya way. Abbas people can take a day off. Yeah it'll be a lot of libraries to. That's gonna be awful. I got a question oppose for you guys though. Yeah speaking of celebrities. What do you think about all the people that he had endorsed Trump had like ice cube. But you san little wayne. Do you think this now that he's going to be out of office. This effect them now. Because i know. I'm looking at some of melissa. Always now go out there on the ice cube situation. I'm linear next on us. And this caused me to be out of favor with people but hey what else is new so i think we'll listening to the full story because sometimes you know on twitter on social media. People liked cherry pick. I saw the ice cube said that he had presented to plans or hit. He presented his plan to both parties to both biden and trump and the biden and people said well. We'll look at your plan after the election and that the trump people they said. Oh yeah go ahead in your plan to us will evaluate it and yes i know the trump people it was all about you know basically yes i mean it was. It was a joke for them. They they weren't really going to do anything. They were just basically using him but at the same time it wasn't like he was actively going out to trump which i think that's the narrative that's been out there he approached. Both both parties are both candidates. So i'm just. I'm not quick to be like he's an uncle tom. Let's cancel cute but definitely little wayne definitely little way yet. 'cause those guys is different because they were like. Oh so our taxes are gonna go up. We're voting for trump like an ice cube has never said that he's voting for trump. as a matter of fact. I think ice cubes that he's not voting for anybody because he's all about having a black agenda and who is going to help the black community which i got questions about that too late. Who is helping the black community you know. Yeah i'm kind of with cuban. That and i think approach is obviously misguided and he. He should've obviously chosen an approach. Where he wasn't he knew that he wasn't going be. He should have known that he was being fooled. I think he should've known. That's what i think got me. I should have known that but at the same time i'm like he's not trying to work with trump like that wasn't his intention. I just think he was misguided in his approach. So anyways i just wanted to say that and present a nuance kind of you. Know response to it. Because everybody's like oh. He's working with trump. he's canceled guys. Don't know the full story of observation of known the optics are bad on that. Like i agree. I agree the optics. Were bad but at the same time it's not like he's exclusively like he didn't vote for trump. It's not liking trying to you. Know say. I'm a republican now. And all of this stuff. He just wants to push forward his black agenda he don't care who advocates for he just wants someone who's in wall. Basically he said that whoever is in power should be the one to push forward this agenda but yeah i mean i completely disagree with his approach. I think he should have just been patient. And then like you know. Have the biden folks look at it. By the way. I think biden people should have looked at it before the election. Like why y'all waiting you know if y'all are so concerned about black issues why is something that you guys want to put off until after the election but anyways spiel on well i will say something that was appreciated master if if people took it s not but just joe acknowledging the black vote gotten where he is like. He got our bag. You know i appreciate you guys. Supported me all these years. 'cause they said joseph fixture where i live on wednesday allstate. He's been there several times. Talk to the students Down the street from the university of delaware not like there's a huge black student population there. But they're still there so it was nice to get the acknowledgement. that's not always generally. That's not sad in politics by a white candidate. So that was that was nice I'm not sure about it if anyone's really truly receiving it but that was appreciated on my head. Yeah i just hope the when he actually goes into office he does things for the black community. Knowing that the black vote helped get him in office. So i i hope that he remembers that but yeah i mean i hope that at the end of the day that he pushes forward more legislation like i. I like the fact that he wants to decriminalize marijuana personally. I think he should legalize it. You know there's been propositions on the ballot other states. New jersey now is legal so it would be nice if they just go ahead and legalize it but you know one step at a time. I guess i noticed. Decriminalize dalloway know that much. I just like you know. Because i'm going to try not to bring up bernie too much. Try try bernie. I bernie again. Now i really. I really loved his plan when it came to that. 'cause kind of tying into the black vote and the black community you know not only. Did he want to legalize marijuana but he also want wanted to expunge the records of those who had been criminalized and the criminal justice system from being charged with marijuana charges and he also wanted to put together funds for black and brown communities to help them create small businesses. you know to create their own marijuana businesses because that's the thing to once it's legalize. White people are definitely going to try to profit off of this. You know and these are the very very drug that black and brown people have been criminalized for decades and now white people are gonna profit off of it so bernie was like no. I'm gonna go ahead and have money for black and brown businesses so they can go ahead and create their own marijuana shops their marijuana farms etc etc and david profit off of it and i really loved that idea for a plan. So that again. That's that you know is a part of the black agenda that probably you know maybe ice cube had in his plan or something. I don't know but do you think that the biden administration is going to bring bernie into the fold at all or is that e two left for them. He's going to be a member of his cabinet and the department of health. Okay so that's all but that's the yeah. That's the word at this point and there was a political article that just came out of all of these candidates that may be in not candidates. But you know like. I guess people that yeah role cabinet and i was seeing some of these names like meg whitman. Who's in the one that brought down qube the former ceo. What i. she's a republican. Or may like i guess i guess you know reaching across. The aisle is maybe his intention but why not bring in some progressive faithful out there the cabin. Yeah yeah look. Speaking progressive got on on his team. That is a progressive. Look is she she. Is you know. I was kind of Being critical of her with her progressive politics. But you're right. She actually is pretty progressive You know i've had my issues with her. You know histories attorney general in the past. But as a senator she she has been pretty progressive. The only thing that i had an issue with Kamla on when she was running president as she was running on medicare for all at the beginning and then she flip flopped on that. And i'm like no. Don't do that women so i i'm just happy. I mean she on her aside she did make history as first and the first woman of color black indian women to be vice to be vice. President i mean look about there was a slide. Show all these men all these white men the vice president and then there's karma so you can't help but take pride in that absolutely that is something you cannot take away from her and that is something. I have a incredible amount of respect for that. She was able to break that barrier. And i'm excited because you know. I hope that you know. Joe biden has really good health. You know through his four years but it rained. He ran during his. Yeah yeah that were not ready. Joe shoes like he's got the history and i was dying when he did the whole run. Sort of sort of odium outlay. Oh yeah i thought it was too okay young man. He sleeps jono. Laurie taking a little jog. But you know he could've just clicked walk. I mean come on out. He could just quick watson podium. Couldn't even dance with somebody. Yeah and trump. Yeah yeah yeah. He wouldn't make it a feature archana room average jobs. He got to save energy. he can't do too much off the top though exact. No but i was just gonna say if something were to happen to joe like we could potentially have a first black female president boom. I saw this little bugger. Shared on instagram is said ep. Like me i was like this is the cutest thing ever saw and that. That's another thing there's going to be little girls everywhere. A little black girls everywhere. That's going to. Oh i can be a vice president to so. That's that's great matter and can you imagine like halloween. Next year may agree. I'm just excited. And i also you know. Excited about jill jill biden. First of all. He said he is jill's husband. She's still chain. I was like okay. I'm not appreciated Like i said. I'm like how you feel about burning talk about jell like i just followed him just alone of can learning by his story but how he just like one He had you assume sworn in as a us. Senator in the hospital was his sons guides. Car crash on his wife had died as a result of that car accident. And just and then bow bided pass until at all this tragedy. This man still roads up. So i don't know i just always have a low sauce in my heart friend I disagree does a good job and just does what he says he's going to do. Because dow break my heart if you just turned around and did exact opposite of what he promised us. Yeah yeah i. I hope very actually at least tries to do some of the legislation that he's promising the american people while he's in office. Okay so justin. I just checked twitter. bush george w just congratulated by. He's said the election was fundamentally fair and its outcome is clear said this is somewhat the republican party actually acknowledging the truce it would be nice if a current elected official would say it. But this is kind of a big deal. In my opinion. I don't know about you guys You know george has always been chronicles. The obama administration that you would think intern. He close divide and But this is this is good on. He wrote michael long ladder match mushroom and get into it but he basically just said like hey he warned congrats whistles fair contracts with the republican party has been saying it kind of goes back to what i was saying earlier that there's the neo conservative wing of the republican party and there's the trump trumpets so you know bushes part of that whole old neoconservative Folks that are republicans. That actually are a little bit sensical. I mean they're nonsensical and a lot of things because of them also our client. I keep saying client climate deniers But they're not nearly as terrible as as trump ists and they're not as overt with their racism as trump's as well so yeah he he's it kind of goes back to that but i'm i'm glad that he's speaking out and saying something. Maybe more of the neo conservative Republicans will follow suit and start tweeting out now that they see. Oh well you know. George w said something. Maybe it's okay so we'll see we'll see the electric ones say something but I wanna bring up another point about this whole you know biden stole the election. Okay if he saw the election had it we lose seats and the senate. You know like that better ourselves than like yeah. I mean i rang love for us to have cheated mitch. Mcconnell and lindsey graham out of their seats that would've been know ideal gonna cheat. Somebody get those guys out there. Yeah you're absolutely right. I mean it's it's he's only saying the states where he's losing in that. Those are the states that he's being cheated right right. I was pick florida. Why are you picking up georgia and all other places right right. So it's madness. It's madness. But i mean how about this past week watching the numbers command in your house was a sporting event i was like yes. I was working and everything. I know you're doing elections work. I was cheering. I got called. I was working. Well i i was talking to my state because my state is the Yeah yeah and everybody. That i voted for except for my mayor. One so i was like. I'm so excited props to shut out real. Quick to my senator elaine luria. This is her second term as a senator. I was getting concerned there. Because you know garnett is terrible. Go ahead because you're right. yeah. I'm in virginia okay. Do book read. I was a little nervous. I was just like oh me too because at the beginning they when they were counting the votes trump was up and i was like. Oh hell no. We're not a red state. We voted for hillary in two thousand sixteen obama twice. You know what i'm saying like this is not a red state anymore. We used to be a red state but and then we were a purple state like swing state. but now we've gone completely blew some like We are not doing this. But yeah when they finalized everything you know everything when blue so that was great. It was well. We're still waiting for the rest of the that but not that we needed at this point. It's so nice to say. I also just wanted to bring up a few more i again. I appreciate in my little tiny state getting some. Some love Sarah mcbride became the first transgender state. Senator us history. I voted for her. That was very nice to see. Yeah so that is just you know changeon and tolerance and going back to jobs. Not being judgmental a hose. I i like to see this trend going in the right direction. Oh and the whole squad got reelected squad is back and we got new squad members to we got cory bush. we got jim thome and yeah i cannot. I cannot wait to see jamaal bowman on the house floor like cutting it up because he is so vocal is also yeah. It's it's great it's beautiful day. It's a happy day i yesterday. I ordered door dash and that would be the most expensive thing on the menu and a good day my kids. She's kind of been like what is going to keep. Classes allow are watching the same channel. Wires people talking so boring had explains her and she's just like hug i cool and it goes up. Tear room the gravity of this election doesn't quite on But i look back on this than she goes awol. My mom talked about it. So that makes me happy joe. I'm proud election. Voters turned eighteen. And what was it. Didn't joe biden. Like d most votes period. Any president ever candidate yes. Yeah yep so. Maybe that's something to say about making voting more accessible. I mean i've always gone to the polls. This is my first time doing a mail in ballot but it was super easy. I definitely will do that again. Allowed yeah yeah. I i mailed my ballot. You know people were all like Of course the conspiracy theorist was like. Oh this this ballots probably gonna get compromise. But then i was like no what. I'm just gonna mail it because absentee ballots have been around forever. So i'm not gonna let trump and his you know crazy thinking convince me that i have to go out and go to the polls and vote when i had the opportunity to just mail this out. See i mailed out my ballot and you know obviously my vote counted. Because everybody you could try it like. It's like the mail and it's gonna got shot and see it was received accepted. So it's not like you're in the dark when you send it in now's the daredevils of went to the polls so but i did keep the idea to social distance e though i did do the social distancing and little tich mellow touch pin. Everybody was taking photos. Daredevil the air but you know no. That's i mean. Listen jesuit a little bit. I did target the polls. But i had to go to the polls working public burden. In the safety of my living room. I worked for seeing this trending buns for biding on twitter. Oh lord dear. Internet needs to slow down. We don't need to see your butts for biden. Speaking of polls we gotta give a shout out to stacey abrams plaque or something. I don't know what they're going to get hurt but she needs something. The stacey abrams memes are so funny because they had in queen of the warns from game of thrones house trump. It was me it was so great. Yes she she completely Did the whole get out the vote campaign and got folks out in georgia to register and made a lot of those counties go blue and that is why georgia right now is a biden is up georgia and there's a special election that's still going. I mean i think there's a senator that is a has her seat up. That's a republican. So we will see whether or not her seat is going to be taken away from her and maybe we could have a majority democratic senate. Possibly i don't love we'll see yeah crossing lingers. Yeah progress around. I'm just happy on. I said i'm gonna take day off twenty kids They didn't put out there. That is trump. i mean he's supposed to concede which he still hasn't done yet. You're traditionally supposed to call the president that was elected. He still he didn't do that. He's still tweeting that he won. Biolog- florida road And they said they are perfectly capable of escorting him out of the white house. Come come inauguration. So i trust me. I cannot wait to see that mess. He's going to be like man. Lord is such a sore. Loser is fired fired so just for that entertainment piece for me. I actually small party wants him. Just stay knows that they drag him out. Like old boy did Matt kimberly elise his character and madeira. Black woman is dragged him out his. I let him out on his behind. Yes okay with Yeah you know being on that footage. Yeah that'd be good. They did show him coming back from the golf course and like this whole time. He's been kid like he was at the golf course when he should make home. A few days into the election He's still tweeting that how everything's a fraud and everything's a scam and joe is out here getting briefings on the climate and cova. So it's like you can already see the difference. So i'm just going to be happy and when january twentieth as there is here joe sorin into offices and we can kind of move on from this. The last four years of our is which have been just horrible able in my opinion So i'm excited. Yeah some bad news guys. I just got a text from my mom. Alex trebek's died. Yeah i was. Yeah i just saw on cnn. Yeah man hard to get. He had battled for quite a while. He had pancreatic cancer right. Yeah yeah well. That's not something you wanna hear on such a happy occasion. But i mean this has been a rough year in general was chadwick. I know he lost koby. January chadwick a lot. Lot a lot of people this year and i lost a personal friend this year. Yeah so it's it's it's been tough man. Yeah tweet hundred and see how much you can take Yeah so i'm hoping twenty twenty one will be a better year obviously now that we've got trump out of office. It'll be a better year for everybody you know. People's rights will be given to them. You know instead of taking away and there'll be some some high hopes that's that that is the hope. I'm i'm trying not to be as progressive cynical as some friends about everybody pass abilities. I am trying am trying. Because i listen i. I'm not one of those folks that are like oh biden is going to just fail us. Like i don't want to be that person because at the end of the day this is this is the person that is are the leader of our country. This is the person that's going to be making the rules. So we we do want him to win. Do want him to be successful in his job. But at the same time we do want to hold him accountable we do want to hold his feet to the fire. When he's not doing the things he's supposed to be doing So you know. It's you gotta toe the line there but I do tend to fight the good fight. And when he does become president because i'd rather fight neoliberalism than fighting fascism. So that's kinda how i feel about. You know where. We're going to go in the future but i at the end of the day. I am hopeful so so yeah that's all we can do is hope. That's the big bad is office now. Returning jeddah high comparisons and marble compay. Yeah the mark. Have you guys seen the marble memes in gifts like i'll one was like Biden was like captain america. And then of course you know. Trump was daniels or whatever i dying that was land in the beginning. We realized meth mail in ballots. Were leaning more towards the democrats I had saw someone post about. It was the same scene was no cap american beata and then The black panther turned his crew. Walk in and those are the mail in ballot. And i took that out on this page as well but it was felt like yes. Come mellon bellio seriously. This and i will say this is one of the elections that words like since we all had to be home. We're all on my rollins. Litter facebook all. The stuff is at our fingertips probably added to the zaidi of this election was just having it available to us. Twenty four seven. But like i said it's over over. We don't have to watch those ads on tv. Every file became yes. Man stuff is on. Jesus goodness yeah. So that's good. That is good. Well let's wrap this up. i. I'm glad that you know you guys have tuned in to hear us talk about election. Twenty twenty please feel free to give us your thoughts and opinions of what you think about the outcome of this election you can tweet at. Bgn podcast you can tweet to the black nerds. Account at black girl nerds. Black girl geeks and ryan anjelica. Do you want to give out your personal handles. sure i'm finally where people online as is At at malan mommy two eight one six in november bear. So yeah this'll be good. I mean don't fight with angelica but definitely finish your comments and stuff. I think this could be good though going into you. Know twenty twenty crazy. We're still dealing with it. But everybody the thing is everybody's at home and you gotta sit down. You gotta wash stuff no more running. So this'll be interesting. Going into twenty running from these different problems and what we see in systematic racism. So yeah it'll be it'll be it'll be interesting to see going into twenty twenty one where people are taking notice and what they're not going to stand for anymore so you use your voice your yup yup right and by the way i just wanted to add. I don't quite remember the details. Feel free to go on biden's website to see what that is but he does have a plan that he's enrolling as well with respect to online harassment that you know he's sort of You know making sure that people are not doing a harassing each other online so I kinda like that. I think that that is really good because obviously our president now you know lame. Duck donald donald. Yeah you don't wanna work. Yeah he's become the biggest bully of social media and online harassment and it's just he's created a culture trout of it where it's just been accepted and it's okay and i liked the fact the biden is trying to put together a plan to You know i guess. I don't know why i can't think of words today. Yeah yeah so. Check out that information for those of you listening. I should have had that in front of me but anyways I just thought that was great online. Bullying is the worst and yet really needs to be stopped. You know So good on good on his team for you know tackling that issue. We're we're going in directions though we got. We got rid of trump. That's that's what i'm most happy about. The fascist is is gone so yes out. Cheetos go on all right guys. Thanks for listening. Thanks for tuning in. We will see you next time and have fun out there and be safe out there. When you're you know doing your thing when you're working out in the street. Yeah with the mask. All people right works safely to work safely.

147: Adarian Barr on Foot Pressure and Arch-Centered Performance | Sponsored by Simplifaster

"And that's we talk about him about feet wide feet. Small feet toes spread and things like that. If you wanna go fast, you can't have spread toes. Once again, you just increase the surface area. I wanna reduce the surface area. So and at the same time to if I'm going to small surface area. The other toes come to reinforce the big toe. So once again, I don't want them to- spread out from trying to go fast. I'm trying to stand in one spot. Sure. Spread them salt large surface area, stay there. But if I want to fast, I they got to come together those coach bio and inventor a dairy bar. Speaking on pressure, to- spacing and the transverse arch of the foot. You're listening to that.

That's simply with an eye faster dot com. They are the future of coaching technology. Welcome to episode one forty seven of the just like performance podcast. I'm your host Joel Smith, and we were happy to have back on the show coach a dairy bar. He's been on. This is his fourth time. And I'm always thrilled to have a dairy and on if you look at this podcast as as kind of a series of mini, lectures, if you will with coaches who are really on the edge the fringe of the field, and I say, the fringe the fringe is a good thing. The fringes is really pushing that circle of knowledge and awareness of what makes it good athlete, and what makes training great to a greater level. We're expanding that circle of awareness, and I strongly believe that dairy bar is really leading a huge charge in that realm in the world of athletic movement, and particularly learning what makes athletes fast, I think it's very easy to reduce the whole equation to just force velocity. And. Then when we're in the weight room velocity means putting tend to on a bar, but we're still moving well under those joint angular velocities that athletes are moving at and so not to mention the triplane nature, and everything that goes into athlete movement one of the topics. We've spoken quite frequently on this show is the foot, and that was actually the topic of discussion last time ahead area on before that he spoke a little bit on athletic, a symmetry. And then our first podcast was on bio, mechanical myths and truths in coaching such as talking about things like getting your knees up and sprinting why people tend to say that why it's not that conducive. We actually talked about that on the the last episode is well, relating basically building sprinting from the feet up, and what's happening as athlete goes through nations. Supervision force travels across the foot the achilles loads and unloads and how the timing of all that is critical to a good sprinting technique, and when we coach outside of that. Things upstream without considering the foot we run into trouble. It was an awesome episode. And it was really cool to see coaches other coaches on social media really taking hold of those concepts as well. And during his just doing such incredible things in the coaching space and sharing his information. So for this one again, it's a continuation of discussion on the foot and this time we're specifically digging into the arches how how do we activate all three arches of the foot? How do we work with the transverse arch of the foot? It may seem like my new show. But it's really not it's critical. It's it's kinda like it's that that last link or not the last like it's like the foot is very complex. But if we look at the probably the most critical aspect of the foot if something's on or off, and if you have a good jumper sprint and able to do something. Well, it is that transverse arch. And so it's important to dig into that. So for today, we this was actually this podcast was record. After I had finished attract session with Darrin about three or four weeks ago recorded it in person, which I'm really enjoying doing lately. And so this also came off of the NC double A indoor championship, meet we're grant Holloway, just completely lit it up and settlements records like in the hurdles, and is also incredible sprinter and long jumper, and dairy and was able to take a lot of things that really make grants special compared to his competitors and highlight those whether it's the foot and pressure or whether it's same sightedness. So we're gonna talk about same sightedness a little bit and how that filters into motoring that was area we kind of went outside of the foot. But whether you're coaching javelin throwing a baseball or long jumping or hurdling or any score hitting volleyball or any skill knowing the same cited concept could really revolutionize what you're doing. And it's made a big impact for me. So this this. Short episode is really all about the foot specifically, the transverse arch, and what it means to be basically unpacking fast. And again, it's basically unpacking fast. And that's really anytime. You talked to a during that's what it's all about. What makes one athlete faster than another the all things being equal? You're the same in the weight room your max forces the same, but Iran two tenths faster than you. Did what's different? So we'll get into that all things foot pressure. And this was a cool episode. So hope you guys enjoy it one. Last thing is that Darien will be teaching at a Santa Clara, California at the annual California rewire seminar that's on June twenty second and twenty third. And so if you're interested in some intensive hands on learning with him because all the stuff is awesome to hear about to experience. It is just massive. And that's what's allowed meteorology piece together all this and really put it into my intuition to fully understand this. So would highly recommend. Coming out and checking out durians hands on teaching techniques to feel this for yourself doubts on June twenty second and twenty third in Santa Clara, California, you could sign up for that on just why sports dot com if you scroll down to the rewire banner that's on the bottom. Right. So so we hope to see their that'll being said, let's get out of this foot up pressure. An arch centered performance podcast with coach Darrien bar. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Somebody just sent me a picture of a video a short video clip of Zion Williams. Gimme the jump and what happens arms out both arms come back. And then boom, he goes. And so that's back to what we've been talking about. It is putting energy into the body. So he's banging them putting back to jump and stuff like that. But it was just cool. There's somebody said, hey, man, check this out. Yeah. That's it. Right there. Yeah. It's it's good to see him play. And again, like, you you when you when you blow to the shoe, and and I mean, it's easy to hate on shoes. Right. Right. Right. Right. Right. Right. Very easy. But you're you're the first person who said, hey, look at how he missed up before that foot even fell right, right? Right. Right. Right. So yeah, we we always put we never go back far enough. And looking at something like, I said, we want to blame the shoe, so yeah, we see the sue, blah, shoe, shoe fall. Well, how much do we expect from the shoe? I mean, that's like having a car with tires rita's, seventy miles an hour. Then you drive a hundred fifty miles an hour. You know, they they seventy mile per hour tires. What are you doing one hundred fifty expect them to hold up? Same thing. An enormous. Castanza's their shoe would hold up on an SM stance. No is not gonna hold up anymore. Yeah. I mean, I don't think any shoes at all are built to withstand two hundred eighty pounds of dude. Like that missteps. And then put it all an impact, which I'm sure we'll talk about later in the show that put the whole impact in just one part of the shoe. I mean, that's I don't know of any shoe that could take that like maybe fifty times and survival fifty right, right? Right. Right. Right. And that's still becomes the thing that we we talking about is what do we expect from these things? You know, what do we expect from performance? What do we expect? And why do we expect more than what it can be Biden's the first place? Well, the reason why because we want to blame them, you know, to-you shoes. No, goofy. I told you that I told you Nike makes shoes I. Okay. A million people wear Nike shoes. Weren't pair blows out doesn't make it a bash. You. Yeah. I mean you and I both know as well as anybody who cares. Really cares. Looks in the foot that yes modern shoes are not the right by any means. But you know, I mean these people who are making these shoes specifically for Orioles Paul Georgia's right like someone at least new Paul George's general tendencies, good job. Exactly. But like it. You know, it was his Nana is injured lake was not the one in the shoe. Right. And that one misstep right before he went everything went into right, shoop whatever but Duke won last game. So hey basics basics, execute, fundamentals rebounds. So what are your latest Instagram posts that I thought was really cool like my life is so crazy. But it's like if I am on Instagram. It's like, okay gotta see. I mean, they have geared. So the stuff you actually look at shows up first. So it's stuff that shows up if I do start going through the feed your show it on Holloway was on his record setting hurdle race right house on a smaller part of his foot. It's like, yeah. We're talking about the foot right Zion. Little bit of pressure and one part of the foot blow out the shoe, but he was able to steer his foot during that hurlers coming off the hurdle in a manner or was it. Excel excel ration-. Sorry, right acceleration. That was directed differently. Can you talk about like, yes? Shoe the part of the foot pressure speed force. Let's talk about fast today. Let's a fast is a lot of times, we talk about force application, and this way, I try to go about it is, you know, if I have a thousand pounds of force, and I have a area this this tin square inches. You know, that will divide it up into the area. So now taking putting out a. Pounds per square inch with I can put two thousand pounds through one inch same force. He's a now is going through one inch. The return is going to be so much greater than the hundred. That's going through the inch. And that's what we get into is that how do we increase pressure not necessarily the force? But how do we increase the amount of pressure that we put out and everything? And so when we talk about inside edge, and we talk about grant Holloway. Yeah. You watch their start in Loppy wanna correct people's feet from turning in or turning out. And someone's they turn out that put you into a small area. So now, you have a lot of force going through a small air, which means you get a lot of pressure now and oppression helps you to go fast accelerate, but most people want to say, no straight in the foot out. But now if I straighten that foot out, I enlarged the area and I reduced pressure. Same force reduced pressure. Not on goes fast. Yeah. Yeah. And I think one of the things too like we were literally just doing this with different like foot inserts and various things like and the way that you're like, okay. If you're does hit flat and pressures more evenly. Distributed. That's good for being like a break. More force jumping up. Right. You wouldn't jump? You wouldn't jump vertically off inside little and no order. Yeah. No. It's too much. And so yeah. So even as we run, you know, a lot of times we practice things. We don't have to practice because there are built into if. But then comes back to that how using a foot. So so we have to go back to like if you usually foot as a class to lever. It works this way with pressure. If you not using it for the class to Lebanon. Yeah. Put all the forty-one put into it. It just goes back to how me I prefer pressure class to lever. It works better that way in my opinion one hundred percent. So I I hear you talk about. Yeah. Here you talk about class to lever a lot, and I'm sure anyone who's followed your Instagram account has has heard you say that in the foot, and we know have put port in the foot is like, it's it's just this critical transmission and Lynch pin of being a great athlete. And so when you talk about the foot as a class to what like, what are you? I mean, I maybe I can link to something like that in the show notes like with the wheel barrel. What do you? What do you mean by versus like a class one or class three? Like, what does that mean? Yeah. Okay. So there's there's three classifications one two and three and the only thing that changes the all need to focus point, they all need effort or force, and they all need a load or resistance, daunting changes. The combination of where these things are placed at so, for instance, in a class, which means would think of like a a seesaw, you know, where the focus in the middle. You can put the load on one side put the effort on the other side, you know, which is also what the hit is sitting on it. It's a class one. You got the muscles in the back got most. But but I'm going to pull this way to go this way. So that's a class. One. Clash three is elbow joint knee joint once again four component here. The load is at the end and the effort or the forces in the middle. So when you get to a class to lever, you know, the focal point then you have the load in between the focal point and the force. And so with the foot being a class two levers designed to handle node heavy load class three levels are designed. To wrap it movement fast movement. Yeah. Yeah. So and so we get these things where we say, okay. Now, how does it make me go fast this week this we talking about go fast? Well, once again, if I that theory that they have about or sure to lever moves faster. Well, if I can shorten it fast into a shorter lever than yacky, moved faster. We never talk about that part. Not just shorten it. But how fast can I shorten it to make it move faster? So as a missing component, they want you put the how fast I can shorten it to make into a shorter lever. Then we ended up moving fast again same thing. The the with the class to lever. If you're loading a wheelbarrow is to go this way here if somebody was throwing rocks into the Wilbur as trying to move it. It would drop down. You pop it back up really fast. Now, if there is no load the effort of force is low. So how do I load this thing? That's what that because how do I load? How do I load fast? Get a and that becomes the thing of class to how we train a fast, but that gets into shenango. Because a lot of times people look at the foot, they talk about ground reaction forces. So they see the foot actually being pushed off the ground instead of the Hsien loading it and then the killers popping up which lhota people go can achilles handle that kind of load if Zion to handle the is that lever designed to handle heavy loads. So yes, it can handle it. And so we can do those things there. But but fast how fast I'll be talking about force. I don't care about the force anymore. Fifty pounds sixty pounds eighty pounds ten pounds. How fast can I get it? Now. How fast can I load this thing? And then boom, we're gonna go. That becomes overriding question is the speed at which I can lo whatever it is one hundred pounds. How fast can I do it? Yeah. No. I I like to me like I try to make things as or reduce things a lot of times in my mind to make it easier for me to understand I and I like that you've always taught me how to think more than what to think, right? Right. And like, so basically, I just look at it. Like, yeah. Wheelbarrow is designed for really heavy forces. The ankle is the lever. New. It's not a speed lever like the elbow. It's designed for really heavy forces. And so, but then to be fast. So we have to learn how to load the wheelbarrow faster than you know, than not just raw force to like you're saying like like just raw force off the ground. Like there is it's more about the loading how we load it than just looking at just pure force on a force plate or the end product. Right. And that's what a lot of time looking at the end product. But but some had happened before the end product came about, and so yeah, like I said if you arms a whole knows barrels or holding the handles of a wheelbarrow somebody dropped a thousand pound rock, it's gonna jerk in jerky back up. If somebody dropped a ten pound is going to Turkey. Now, you're gonna jerk it back up. That's all it is. But but we're looking at Deger up. We never saw the jerk down. Yeah. And so the way the weight in the wheelbarrows based like the, you know, the forest through the body coming down through the shin base. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. And that's why too. When we talk about another thing, we talked about pressure. What I want pressure because I need the fulcrum to stay in place. I can't have the folks at the focal point move. I'll bet off. So I need a lot of pressure on full component of first place to hold the then all of a sudden. Yeah, you can drop a low because the focal point is gonna hold in go. If it doesn't hold two will pop off the ground. And so all of a sudden. Yeah. At the lows too much the will pop off the ground well at that point on delivers. No good. So so we want pressure on that four component, which is a transverse arch. So that I can put a heavy load in loaded fast. And then I can get this force that I did I'm looking for. Yeah. I'm glad you mentioned the transverse arch too. So that basically it's arch that runs from the ball the little toe to the ball the. Veto any more or less, right? Right. Right. Right. Run out of kind of angle. Yeah. Yeah. But a lot of times people just talk about the ball the foot. No. Is that whole area you need that that transverse arch. Yeah. The like it's easy. Just to say, you know, get your big toe like, okay like, but what you here for every ten times, you say get your big toe or something about the big toe you here. Maybe one person mentioned the transverse Archer, the the think of it like, you know, we always want to think proximal before we think just still that everyone wants to go to the disciplined, and and I think that, you know, go into the arch I is is such an important thing. And then it literally I'm just starting to think of the last few months about you know, people who when they accelerate. They they basically their their Kile's or there. He'll just goes right down to the ground. They moosh and and I'm starting to look at that little dome. The toes makes in front, you know, right, right? That that that being so important, well two things can happen. And what we call is like ankle collapse. And so what happens is if I slammed my foot down that's going to press the foot up into Dorset flexing at the same time. My Shane moving towards the top of the foot. So actually at that point time actually collapse the ankle. And so that's why I'm not a fan of slamming foot into the ground because I want the foot to hit the ground transverse arch locks in shin moved towards the top of the foot and let people still dourson. I don't call that doors reflection. I caught Shinmun towards you know, but it's it's easy. Once you see it, you know, when you see real powerful, people do it and you go because now instead of getting the load, you're getting a collapse, and then you still have to Wilbur up, but is not the same effort ban output anymore because the lever kind of broken a sense. Yeah. Yeah. Like previous guests like Chris corpus talk about this. When that lever when the when the trans. Verse arch goes in the the foot collapses, and you have a really rapid loss of shit like a really rapid loss of shenango like to fast or something of an acceleration. I mean, you need a little drop right shin drop. But if you lose, well, no, you don't because that's also steering comes in. You don't have to drop it could steer left or right. We still get your same effect. I see with the feast. We. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It doesn't have to drop. So so at some so Sam coming out of blocks and say on that first step out, the blocks. It doesn't have to drop. It can go left or right, which give me the same effect. Yes. There has to be movement has to be moved. It might not be the knee falling for like or the the shin falling downwards in angle you could be getting it through the outward twisting, the pro nation of the foot a little bit. He's gonna move. So there's always going to. So the Shane is always going to move. And then from there, it either can drop the he'll down or it can steer it left or right. But the Shan movement has to come first. Okay. So the shin is always going to draw. He's always gonna drop. But then from there, the it you could get ankle twists or you might not right. Right. Right. Right. Right. And then also too depends on which way you going if you're gonna vertical jump to. Shame will come back up if you can go forward to hip comes over the knee. It just depends on what's going on at that time. Yeah. But she's always going is always going to drop his always going to drop, and that's what we talked about running and being fast. And that's why we have the assessment if you do the assessment, I know you arrange a lot of people I want more. No, you don't want more. Because now you have to go through that ranging faster. You know? So I don't want more rains as disarranged range. I have so say I'm running and I'm at top in this where you watch video. You see why somebody loses race at top in is because they Lenny too close to the in range. And so there's no load on. Yeah. They they didn't have time to load so at top in you got a little bit further back. So you have time to load because things are going so fast at the start of a race. Guess what? I want to be close to the start here. Because now I'm going to load I want I don't wanna. Be if I'm at any rate again is going to go back up, but I can be halfway in between out to be exactly at start range. I can be a halfway inbetween 'cause I want to small movement. And so, but I do want action. The move is just you know, how fast is it gonna move. How far is it going to move? And then once it's done moving. The loading boom takes place you've done with it. So I mean, maybe from a very black and white way of looking at it or polarize like you you're more endorse affliction early in a race. And then later in a race if you if you landed to endorse affliction, dirty and range, and you can't store and release energy. You can't load that second class over very, well, it's like especially with the higher forces that forces Karachi on that top end because they come back so fast ask the people. Get to is how fast things coming back to you. Everybody says ops opposite equal, but how fast milliseconds how fast to come. So soon as you put it the ground, guess what obstacles taken place? So if I stumped too har-, he's already came back through me. And that's when the next say at that point time what happens you could see at high speed, you can see people's feet bounce off the ground. So you can see that fulcrum that that that anchor point actually. Bounce off the ground and come back down to the ground because it's too much. Yeah. It's amazing. But, but you know, is one of those things where. Yeah, we we have to look at it at I need this thing to anchor me. And then I need this thing to do something. I need this thing to do something know, I was actually I was gonna write a note. Just in case I forgot, but since it's fresh in my mouth. Okay. So you talk about we got the the load is the weight coming down in the second class lever coming down the shin into the foot. The fulcrum is basic the balls of the feet then transfers arch of the. Yeah. You mentioned transfers are against the got. So that has to be anchor it. So let's let's talk about that. Because I'm I think, you know, it's easier to say punch the ground because we have force in mind, but rather than saying that and and being coaching like exceleron or running from an arch mindset, what types of things are you looking to instruct athletes in that regard as they moved to move fast and sprint. Well, that's where we get into swatted runny. Yeah. That when it hits I'm going to squat down on it to really pressurize it and also it's going to force the Shannon moving faster. So again. Because we how do we move fast. How we move faster. So dad point time if I'm going to transverse arch my my, but is actually going to drop towards the heel, which pushes the shin down even faster. And then I'm gonna again, you know versus is leading it hit. And he settled on it. You actually do some more work to actually anchor that thing to the ground. Yeah. And that's we were just talking about that too. And I like the idea of you have to squat to pressurize the system. Right. And how I don't know like for years. I was in the Gibson be skips and pre-programme position and be tall. There's no pressure in that. There's no pressure. You know, your extended there's nothing happening from tall position. And so we have to get in a situation where I said that's why we have the photo drills. Why are you think was working on folding up if I can fold up I can extend but we always work on extensive. We never work folded into everything's a kick an extension or something else. But we never say, hey, let's work on actually folding up moving while folding up. How do we get folded up and how and then once that happens, then as a matter how am I going unfold unhinged? That becomes the next thing. Same thing. Even why you know, like lifting weight, you know, based on your your your shan't moving and things like that. It's going to dictate what type of lift you can do you know, how deep you can squad. And so somebody may not be the squad because they don't have much rain. Let's increase the ranks. No, no, no. No. No. So so that becomes the thing is that when when we talk about fast, it becomes down to how fast can I do these things what kind do to make these things fast? What can I do to make the drop faster? What can I do to make his this arch anchor faster? And even with that nothing to is your arches don't work out a medically. We have to do something to get the artist to work. They just don't work and reason being is they may not be needed. If you're just standing around doing nothing, get only Jarvis. So that point in time they're off but beside to move, you got to activate them, and we say arches not arch you need three of. You know, all three of them got to come to life at that point time is various strategies, and that's why say stretch, what strategy are you using to get three of these things to come to play at the same time. And that's we've talked about earlier about extending, you know, picky toe up extending, and then screwed up those are some strategies to get three arches to work. Yeah. So let's go through those I go with the first one of the things I like that. You had mentioned was the it could be a faster that second class lower which is designed for force handling heavy loads can go faster, if you bring the ends of the wheelbarrow closer together base like the he'll bringing it towards the transverse searched a little bit. Yeah. If I if I bring them closer together because it dad point in time, I can I can root myself faster. I can root myself faster, and at the same time now that I have this stronger arch I can move faster. So everything comes out to Inca point in strength. But the strength of of how the strength of the anchor and the strength of the arch is going to dictate how fast I can move again. So it is not people people talk about toes. But but toes don't help you move fast. A well used arch in a well. Anchored focal point allows you to move fast. Yeah. It's like the toes are just the end product. Like if they if the arch is doing its thing. Well, then you know, the toes could be good like, but it's just think toes that doesn't impact where the force starts. And if you're you got the best in the world. But if you don't have a transfer starts, doesn't doesn't matter doesn't matter and a lot of times people talk about, you know, my my arch collapsed, my arch collapse. They didn't they never collapsed. They would relax state so anything real-estate. It's of course, it's a comply. So of course, if you go inside edge, a relaxed on the arch, of course, it's going to comply what flatten out, but if you if you if you go in and activate it's not gonna comply any more. So that point time we try to roll over. It's going to push back. And that's what we're looking for the pushback. Yeah. With some of the other things, it's like the triangle of power, you get your your pinky toe big toe and reverse winless. I think we've talked about it in the last one, but talk about how the pinkie toe. Works to activate the arch. And then talk about that today was actually the first time. I heard you mention a lengthening the big toe. So those two things just go over that real quick and how that helps to set it up. Well, the the pinky toes sets up the transverse art. And so I have to lift it up. When I when I lifted up, the you can actually see the transfers arch form, you you'll see just form up in and those other toes off the ground things like that. Now, when I extend people, usually if you say stand people can take two things, they think flex up to big toe, or they think they don't think curl up anything flex up, you know, but he actually lengthen extended away from the base of the foot that actually creates a winless mechanism also where tines up everything and wants to pull that he'll forward which once again, if I can pull the end points together, I have a more solid arch a strong arch if I can pull it, and we talk about the transverse arch and a hill pulls in points together. And the Archie is a stronger arch. Now of a sudden I have this tight Fash everybody talks about I have this tight foster here this type foster here in these bones like together. So yeah. Now have a strong arch. But but it takes the picky toe and the big toe to set these things up sure thing, and so when so when it comes down to it, you know, people are celebrating. I think it's like you're sprinting or doing sprint drills or whatever. And a lot of times it's easiest just to take the big easy queue. You know, it's easy to tell people to punch. To the ground or or or whatever. Right. But like how what's the process of like, what are some really simple things to talk to people about when they're moving doing a sprint or even. I mean, it's just different when you do play metric 'cause that's more force unless feed right? So I shouldn't say that. From a foot perspective that we're talking about. We're talking about being fast well direction so direction of movement at ground contact people don't really talk about so one of the things if you punch the ground straight down, you can get straight back up. And like I said that point time you're transfers Archer focal points going to bounce off the ground. Now. The other thing too is if the foot is moving in the same direction, you're moving in is going to it's going to stick the ground and actually stabbed a ground. So people say you stab and grandma your toilet. Well, yeah. Because the foot is moving in the same direction, you're moving and so when it hits the ground actually stabs the ground, but I'm still not on the transverse arch. So I want things to cycle back to me. I don't wanna pull I just want to be cycling back to me. They cycle back to meeting land right on the transverse art. So that becomes the thing is how you get the link to cycle back to you. No matter what's going on. How to get this thing in the cycle back to me so land right onto transverse arch. You as you were saying that kind of brought to my one thing you've told me before. And I feel like if you have a really good transverse Archer foots, totally loaded, and you are doing those like Nick puncher. Put down type ideals, then you're gonna get a really high knee action because it's punching down in returning back to really high right, and perhaps too much I guess in some scenarios. Well, once again, you need a strategy. And this is this is the whole thing if you lift in the what's the strategy in the foot back down to the ground. There's no strategy. What will drive it down? But then you go. Okay. What muscles are doing this? Or what action? How do you? How do you drive it down in that becomes the next day? But you need a strategy. I'm gonna lift it. Now, get it back down. So so you need strategies got some good. I like the the wildlife. I this is like this is a cool new vibe to the podcast we got away from the birds. We got audience. So that in that's like the same thing come out of blocks. What's your stretch in your foot down fast? And so one of the things we show today with that same side movement that get your foot down really really fast. But as a strategy if you split your arms apart if it doesn't get down fast. But you told me to get it down fast. The gave me a poor strategy to actually getting the down fast. And that's why is not about right or wrong. Is it a good strategy? Or is it a bad strategy for what you're trying to accomplish? And that takes a different conversation. Yeah. And those the next question that I wanted to get into was the same strategy. But before I do, I I kind of wanted to close out this foot thing and being fast with something that we talked about just when we met today, and that was real looking at the that 60-meter-hurdles final and like how people would Holloway specifically would have his foot straight for more of a forceful stri. But then when you speed up your turn it out could you talk a little bit about that. Like how the turn out of the foot or the straightness of the foot how he was using that to be there. Or fast as he would go and how that kind of fits into where we coach. Yeah. Because the the foot directions going to dictate the surface area again. And so coming over hurdles, how do I slowdown without slowing down. That'd be I want to slow down. But but I don't want to slow down. So if I put if I allow more of the surface over the foot to contact grant, I just slowed down without technically slowing down. Now, if I expose a smaller part of the foot to the ground, I just spent up because now once again to force and putting out smaller surface area, bigger return versus if I increase the surface area smaller return, so I just slowed down without even trying to slow down. But I'm still going fast because I'm not putting energy into slow. I'm just steering my foot in a way that they defects me down speed up slow down speedups laid on speed up without physically slowing down speeding up. I it makes me think of this help the best athletes had the best bandwith to work with like they turn their foot out if they want to write small pressure on the inside edge or they can turn it back flat. Equal and I like I watch like the slow kids at a track cl-. Are the ones like, you know, these these nine ten years in Claude hopper shoes. Like all they have is is middle middle in straight and use long low so implausible, right? Right. And that becomes the thing they surf, and then you put on a shoe, so people remember that you put a shoe on using crease to surf already reducing things because you put a shoe on his larger than your foot. So you are increased which we did with Joe shoes. They actually just decreased we just decrease the surface area. And also, boom. So so that becomes a thing that we have the careful shoes and everything like that as far as these services are concerned. But yeah, if you wanna get faster just understand how to reduce the surface area. Yeah. And and yeah, like you said like it's almost like I was talking to you today about how it was at the park for like hour and a half with my daughter's two and a half. And like all the kids. You know, you watch them barefoot. I'm always like watching like what their feeder doing before they get older and get your shoes like all the time. And and what are your do? Well, you do have these options a little surface. And there's there's his kid is probably five like running up the hill. Barefoot, and you can just see how he. Know he's just off on kind of the ball of his foot on one foot. But you could see his feet were working. Well, and they were like this kid is fast. Right. Right. Right. Right. And even how can stand on even if you get to that area. And that's what we talk about him about feet wide feet. Small feet toes spread and things like that. If you wanna go fast, you can't have spread toast once again, you just increase the surface area. I want to reduce the surface area. So at the same time to if I'm going to small surface area. The other toes come to reinforce the big toe. So once again, I don't want them to- spread out from trying to go fast. I'm trying to stand in one spot. Short spread 'em salt large surface area. Stay there. But if I wanna go fast, I they gotta come together. And you got to think about that too. Where people show you to pitch all the time about, you know, the the businessman who worked in these shoes and its feeder like did this show you to barefoot run? Well, how fast did he go? He's a fast runner. That's all. I wanna know, you know. You know, but they never tell you who's a fast run at eighty show, you this is bad. This is good. Well, who's the faster guy? I'm going to faster guy. Everyone's like, oh, LeBron James's feet. Look how terrible and ugly. They are. Well, the bar. You can go pretty fast. And he's got those toes are loaded. Right. So give me his feet. Saying they like when people said you saying boat taking his bed. We'll give technique because I want to go nine five to ten second technique but tonight five eight technique. Gimme gimme that stuff. Yeah. I mean. Yeah. I think it's funny. How I mean you dig was saying the same thing on the podcast. We just as exhibitor on how the toes shouldn't be spread out. They have to that. They have to be close that translates arch packed, and it's loaded and ready to go. And and I think that it is correct me if those toast betters there was a point in time. I think where I was like, oh that could be a good idea. Oh, my, you know, like, oh, my my little toes always curled in. But then it's like, okay. Wait a second. Do you want your transverse arch to work like, right? Right. Right. And if you spread them out, then guess what you have no transverse arch, which is fine. Like, you say if you just wanna stand someplace spread them. But if you wanna move and move fast, don't spread them. Yeah. It's it's just physics. And yet, it's this Salty's it's so important to being fast. But yet we always want to find a solution that's outside of our shoe. A we were lifting weights or way that were a driller apply metric redoing its like, I I spent ten years I feel like reducing my. Impulse through where through my heels collapsing in swatting, and all this stuff, and and lifting my knees too much required a law a lower slower impulse in. And here I am thirty five and just want to get it back. We all want to get it back. But that's why we have. And that's what rewires about how to get it back. How to how to get back to that state before some extra coaching, you know, and so I remember being fast. And and I remember, you know, saying thing I had a small arm stroke when I ran, you know, and they would tell me you need open your arm stroka, the more open arms tropes, Laura, and then became another issue and into became another issue instead of just go back to their small arm stroke, man, just just go back to thing. Yeah. No it to be too. That's why it's like I love going to the park. I love watching your kids run around and do their thing before anyone tells them what to do, you know, all the different ways they play and my daughter, turn learn a dribble basketball. It's just like I have like a closer. I just how the the kid wants to do it before. Right holding on to do. So. And I think what happens to is is people forget that. They'll say, well is sewing so training this way. So so doesn't have to train is because we have it. Yeah. But we can learn something that's always the most funniest thing. Well, I don't think there, and I don't think actually train to spread to close toes again, the no because area in that way. Or your nervous system figured it out. Like, this is what it's gonna take to go fast subconscious mind SuperBowl. Okay. Yeah. Bodies like can do that for you. All right. Well, and that's like the picture. I posted a day with with Norman in Phelps. Yeah. A swimmer in a in a sprint coming out, two blocks and dental eye tentacle. How did that happen because they lead athletes? They're wired the same way they need to be explosive. So there it's the explosives explosive. The move is a movement. But here's a swimmer who it's who we say too slow. You don't say some people are slow. But yet he's doing the same thing this elite sprinters doing out, the blocks. Holy cow. People get a glue. Yeah. For those guys listen to if you had a dairy Instagram nonsense sports training. He has a really cool picture of the Michael Phelps and Norman side-by-side same shin angles. Like same thing with the arms. It's very it's crazy. Everything sports. Yeah. It is amazing. Yeah. So check that out. But hey, back last few questions at this show, which, you know, look at this vibe, we got the son got the little mountains track. People coming out trying. So. Yeah. People come to try, and it's gonna be interesting. Oh, oh, that'd be wrong. Live commentary on people running by. Yeah. That'd be fine. We'll have to do one of these. It's way better than the quarter. My typical corner my bedroom. Why do these fires got smaller smaller than my two kids of take it over my house? But yeah, let's talk about same side same side action. It's like, you know, you're watching the sixty meter hurdle race, and it's like, well, what's the Lynch pin of technique like what should you be arms and legs? And what's that coaching linchpin that fits everything together? So you could you talk a little about. Coach in the same side. Same side arms and legs as athletes move. Yeah. One when we say same side know, saying SE lateral most time, we coach controversial ops, aside left arm, right leg, so forth, and so forth. But it would same side we trying to get at a certain time for the the right arm right leg to occupy the same space. You know, whether the front, you know, and I'm getting frontal playing transverse planes. I don't get into those things in front of the bottom side about body behind him body, but one occupy the same space. You know, you see it often. Like, I said, great, great dribblers and basketball where the occupying the same space as they do, you know, crossover drew Honda bag highjump as you go to take off javelin. You have a Armand bagging back. You know, you haven't won in front of the same size in front. So so we see plenty of times. And so the better we get at at occupying the same space with the same side at the right time things happen because now the bodies coordinated and. In energy flowing in the same direction same time. And so that becomes a thing. And like I said with long jump, you know, how do I come off the board and long? Well, I got time enough to same side to work together. And that's what we forget is not you know, drive up the knee. And that's the plow drive to Nina left arm. No, I wanted to left arm and left leg to kill the board. That's gonna make me jump high. The if the left foot going down the left arms going up, right? I got energy go in too, many directions. So I can I get these things left arm and his left leg to occupy the space with the board at the same time. That's gonna make me jump on. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And I think that it's it's almost like the mental bandwith that we devote things to see is easier like like, and so like just for example, to I think for a just a Lil is just talk coming out of a three point start, something simple. Most Bill familiar with. So I'm got my right leg is in front of my push off leg my left legs. And back in my left hand is down. How am I how am I working same side in that context? And that context the the left hand or down hand, we'll go forward. So if they left hands down left leg toback right lakes forward, the left hand, we'll full work and the right hand will go back. Now, the left leg will also go forward. And so we have this thing happening, and then the left arm will come back, and now of send the left leg left arm occupying the same space as the foot hits the ground, which is what I want to occupy the same space. Now, Mike of sore, fitness. He calls an equal distance. So he looks at it from a different standpoint. The same thing that the same site will always be equal distance from the mid line at at all times. Okay. Always be distance. And so he looks at it from. But it's the same thing. How do we work this one side of the body and the other side of the body as a pair instead of working opposite sides of the body as a pair? I got you. And you there was a good example to maybe I'll post this video I because I think this really hits it home, and this could be extrapolated to any skill. You know, like it's not I mean track as the easiest because it's performance driven. And but it was Holloway running the hurdles right and his biggest thing compared to his competitors on the left and right. When you watch that video is you're saying his his thrill long. Yes. Yes. Yes. Trail is the goal on. So most been taught that we have a lead on. So that's the controversial movement where semi left leg lead. Hurdler so left leg goes out. Right. Arm goes down. Then I'm going to swing the right onto the back left. Arm goes to the back as a right lake comes through with with grant, the left arm is. They're with the left leg with the league Lega to say time. And then all of a sudden that forces the league down now when the trailer it comes through all of a sudden guess what the perfect time again. Because now he's mashed up in balanced to go again because everything's distance again. But it's a it's a beautiful thing to to watch. Because you never catch it unless you look for you know, and I and you see it you'll see a lot of leaders. Do it. You know, we just had never looked for it because we've been trained to swing around minded away. But when you watch that race the athlete from Kentucky should have won that race. But because he's swinging at right arm. He can off balance. And so you see him sway almost to the into the to the lane line. Name has come back to center grant hallways as down the center of the whole time. Why because he's working at same side to stay balanced. Yeah. Yeah. So yeah. When I was always taught doing hurdle drills. So you you put the hurdle against the fence. Right. And you kick your leg, and you swing your right arm over us, so contra lateral, but grants work in his left, leg and left arm. Like, well, that's the. Pair faster, and it's keeping them straight. And all these guys are swaying over the right? Even if I was long jumping from landing watched the Cuban guy as he lands. The left lake comes for and the left. Arm comes to reach out. I have great flexibility for that. I don't have. I'm going to be sure every single time. So you wonder why we are low job instead of going contra go same side. This one touches down the other side touches down you increase in line is just like the all because the flexibility is there to do it. Same side. Yeah. And I liked how even Hijo we don't have a hijab hit out here. How has this running my curve up to jump at the grass track barrier and thinking about you have me thinking about my I take off my left leg, and you had me working my left elbow behind my body. Right. Like, and that was so much mentally easier to kind of fit into that Girona takeoff than if I was thinking about something on my other side. And so it really just makes it simple. It's a Lynch pin that and everything else builds around that not right. Right. Right. Because then like say it within a high jump yet left, leg and left arm is together now, and then that puts the right arm, right leg together. Which means you have this. Nice energy floated team stretch out and go versus. If you go punch the other way. You don't have the same energy flow to strike now. Now kids can't stretch out things happen this way. Here. The flow is it's. Oh, they doing. Okay. The energy flow. Actor over there. Yeah. But, but that's we're talking about this energy flowed is coming from the ground up, you know, versus you hit the ground, and you try to skip off the ground to jump. That's a different story. Yeah. The timing. And and the way we coach and feel the laws as feel things is just so critical. Right. Right. Right. But yeah. But that's same side thing where we try to time it, right? So that the same side, arm and leg occupies a certain space at the same time. Yeah. Well, it's good stuff, man. I yeah. It was really great being out here today. Just you know, going through foot stuff some running. It's feeling things out in finished with this podcast Hampshire after we'll probably watch runners for a few minutes. And you got the modify shoes on in in. Yeah. So yeah, he actually lasting real quick is just tell us a little bit. What to expect at rewire? You put on his rear clinic. So what are what can people expect out of that? Well, the the biggest thing is back to basics, you know. Just just some basic information on how to get back to that basic athlete. And then how we grow from being basic athlete in about being fast. You know? And that's always the bottom line is how do I get fast? How do I get faster? And so we gotta get back to that. Basic foundation of understanding, you know, posture feet in this whole thing transfers arch, you know, the flap as far as putting energy into the body, you know, and those things makes us that makes us fast. And, but we gotta get back to those to those basic things rewire the system from what we know to what we used to know. Yeah. I love it. It's almost like taking that that functionality of an innate human being you know, that that kid on the playground. He just plays and doesn't have shoes on and putting a lot of power on town. Well, yeah. That's what we talked about earlier to where we in love with the look, but don't stay in the function and so- rewires about the function. Not about the look. Yeah. Good stuff, man. Well, hey, thank you for being back on my show. Again. It's no problem. Hi, thanks for tuning in today. Guys. Appreciate y'all listening and appreciate being a you all being part of this journey that I've been on just speaking to people again on the edge of the field on the cutting edge of the field, and it's increasing my awareness of what it means to be a good athlete how to train athletes and everything that goes into what makes those elite freaks of nature. Do what they do being able to take pieces of that. And give that to all of us the rest of us mere mortals to make us all better. And it's suspend such a fun ride with the Darien.

India says it launched air strikes against Kashmiri militants in Pakistani territory.

"Taste. Today provide you with indepth news and expert analysis tending, the who story bigger picture, you the news you want to know only on today. India says don't use air strikes against Kashmir militants in Pakistani territory. Iran's Foreign Minister Muhamed Dhruva reef announces resignation US. Vice President Mike Pence announces new sanctions on his letter, you uncork author Steve Kay to return. Charles Lind's to Mauritius cardinal, George. Pell has been found guilty of sexual census in Australia. You're listening to today. News programme with a different perspective. I'm joing coming up or have an hour of road. News and analysis to hear this episode again or to catch up on previous episodes to can download our podcast by searching world news analysis. India says launched air strikes against Kashmiri militants in Pakistani territory after a suicide bombing earlier this month that killed forty six Indian soldiers a top Indian minister said the strikes targeted a training camp of a terrorist group in Balakote pack. Stan's is scrambled fighter planes. In response. The move represents an escalating of hostilities between the two nuclear-armed neighbours for more on those. We are now joined on the line by rowing vice president and senior research fellow at the China Institute of international studies could even Dr Rone. Good evening. So this is the first airstrike launched across the line of control since nineteen seventy one. How do you look at this move? All this is very worrisome development for the for the relationship and in the wake of the terrorist attack in the Indian control the cashmere. Yeah. And and of course, the situation is very much Lloyd, and they were still waiting to see what would it be responses from the the extent that even I think the military as or confirmed that the Indian air force did violate the line of control seeing dividing India control, the part, I'll catch Neil and Pakistan. A controlled Kush meal. So we'll see what the whether it be the the the extent side response. Well, could you tell us more about what happened in the suicide bombing against Indian troops earlier this month and how has the tensions been escalating since then? Well, the incident happened February for teams when still side to bomb us job on the explosive later, the car into the convoy of of Indian reserve a policeman killing over forty Indian policemen, actually and immediately I think and then according to their report the Jay, she Mohamoud J M this than the terrorist, a militant group and claimed responsibility for the tax and and New Delhi. India blamed Pakistan for that and satin today with the launch and the Tara attack including military. But of course, it started with a defense diplomatic of they like isolate could stand was jewel. The most favored nation status imposed two hundred percent because some. Do sports and. Claimed openly about they were the responding and does not letter we had this morning with exactly kind of sort of retaliation that being worried so much not only for the ballot relation. But also for the piece then reach well, there has been sub discussion on the real intention of the Indian side because as we know Indian prime turn a random Oti his facing a fierce reelection fight the spring and the voters have demanded that New Delhi responded to Kashmir attack was force against Pakistan. So do you think this could be more about domestic politics than anything else? Yeah. Indeed. I've seen a lot of speculation analysis about the real intention for that have to be fair that this is a serious serious that or the terrorist attacks can so many people and the Indio I think was compelled to respond, but the question is that. How to deal with these you know, way because the the Pakistan side has immediately condemned the incident and offered to cooperate with pack was India for cooperation what kind of joint investigation and Pakistan's. Also, I can Prime Minister Hun also made very clear that if if India could provide a sort of actionable intelligence in Pakistan, whether acting immediate impact course in response to the threat of Amidror packs in also said that they were respond in a code in. It's called him. So this is again that kind of. Development. But but again, as we all know that the election is around the corner in may. So that again, lots of speculation is what India down very much, politically cally. So that were driven. And that is exactly I think the opposition party. The congress party has been calling upon they criticized the ruling party to to politicize the incident when you daddy said they hid the terrorist camp, the J E M, but some sources say those camps in Pakistan has had been cleaned out in risen days is that really the case. And then what might be the real target of India? Well, the I think the J M the group Harris the group this is being based being Indian code to ensure the customer and the attack visits also took place in. Whether we call the power warm. I mean, this is the place close to the shouldn't Naga the the. A fifty of media control the cushion mill. So it's happening in in custody by the Indian control, the part of the customer by the the lot of people believe and the that this L J M is also active in Pakistan controlled and pesha meal. So what we had have is indeed because it being the India clay foreign secretary doing a press conference that they did. I mean, I mean launch that because I'll have the understanding that they have credible intelligence that this group j Yelm is planning planning another round. So they had to do that at a preemptive step the the Pakistan. I think the combined confirmed actual by saying that India conducted I mean cross the l l l c act of aggression, and others times died actually initially airforce also responded to it did happen. And the question is how the I mean many as in that were there many of the members of the TV killed his not for sure Pakistan said nothing. Oh, so now, they are rounding kind of ten pain and also making plans that it will bring it the generous to the side that claimed by India. So we'll see what would have happened. How how much I mean? Indeed, how effective about just so do you think is quite likely to this Indian attack will draw a response from Pakistan? Well, I think subtly being very dangerous because while in. The Pakistan side that we're calling upon their kind of the. Condemn nation about even I mean, and also it is also said very clear that it would respond at the time and the place of its own choice to the Indian aggression. So it's it's a very dangerous, and we all know that India and Pakistan has been rival ended. They had have fought three walls. And also numerous clashes conditions across the line of extra control. So we are having a very dangerous actually situation. Remind us a little bit on the history of the India, Pakistan partition, and what's so special about Kashmir or customer off is one of the Princess day. I mean when India Pakistan partition partition by partition, and and then according to the the sort of understand. These states choose which side in the eye. Yeah. All Pakistan side. But I'm watching TV. I think the the the customer is predominantly Muslim. But the the king I mean. Was kind of Hindu. So it's a very complicated process. And in the end, I think clashes happened and India mostly India, the newly independent and Pakistan got involved. So they literally this I in the Pakistan war, the U N at a resolution calling upon the publicized to decide which thought India, Pakistan, and the customer would be. Belonged to he's never been implemented. That's why we have the issues like that. So we have Indian controlled and extent control the customer, and then the line of control has to be. The buffet. I think for the pasta view, the kite things, but because in the foot Indian Pakistan War, I mean, they're not such kind of large scale conflict by the skin issues and shelling across the line of control. So crossing the line of control violation can be a very dangerous in the series, Matt well, Nassar's Thursday, the Indian government also announced plan to restrict the flow of water to Pakistan from his share of rivers. What do you make of that move? This is one of the series of steps or more India as allowed under spas to the to the terrorist attacks, and this is related to treaty, the Indus Water Treaty, which is being broke the by the UN by the World Bank and of being implemented seems then in nineteen sixty years. So I think. This is one of the of the steps India was like to have made. And but I think just because also very unfortunate because the water issues as a matter of fact, it on the treaty is one of the few treaties, but between India and Pakistan being intimated. So I think in India picking up dot treaty and put out race take the waters to create new uncomplicate politicians would does India really on risk starting another full-scale war, given the fact outta two countries. Now, they both have nuclear weapons, I don't see Ingo the lie to do that. But that's because you we would be the van Catholic their statement by the foreign secretary of India and rest gonna try to explain that sucking consist of India's this, but the question is that the situation. Is better than of the tension of really high and to make the metal world both side most gummy India and Pakistan has announced clearly that they are. Now, the even the military to decide what? And when and how to bond, but there's a better situation and also the media to control very ten on the the fines that the warmonger, particularly the India side. So I think we in very I'm really unprecedented the situation where the tensions between India and the Pakistan as being really really high and dangerous. So where are we likely to go from here? How minus situation involve I think, of course, the most of the the the the ideal way, of course, if the the b India. Pakistan to sit together and talk about this issues and take steps to low of tension and avoid thought of escalation, and and also exercise I mean, restrain this is very important, but other other situation very fluid and now well, it was t-. What what happened the next the Pakistan side as being as kind of the parties have been. Does other being under the aggression? And I am in the then it was with a with the have to respond, and that this moment what I see is Pakistan, most primarily focusing on diplomatic sort of front of being now calling upon the organization of Islamic Conference's and into and other friend friends considering to Wien, but but the meantime is also prepared to respond any possible military aggression about it is tied. I said they are going to leave a mutually to respond at the time and the place of his choice. So well, well, it was the the next few. I think days can be very dangerous, and it can be very a war isn't if I mean vacs collation does not low up then it was possibly skill of a more tension. But I hope and I I hope that the two sides. I. Cool minded, prevail and peace pavilion. And I think it takes two side to work together to take steps to will prevent him peace and stability and working together to promote on terrorism. This is also very much. Thank you. Dr owning vice president and senior research fellow at the China Institute of international studies. You're listening to today's stay with us and focus all in one place China plus focuses on the middle. Breaking news and the stories that matter to you search for China plus the app store Google play. You're listening to today. I'm joing Iran's Foreign Minister Muhamed driven. Zarif said he is stepping down. In a surprise announcement posted to his Instagram account. He apologized for shortcoming during his time in government. The reef played a prominent role in a Goshi hitting the lent. Mark twenty fifteen nuclear agreement between Iran and major international powers. But the future of the deal has been put into doubt after US President Donald Trump ended us involvement for more on those earlier had a talk with professors eat Mohammad Marandi dean of the faculty of world. Studies at university of Tehran. Professor Marandi, what's your reaction to this news? And what did you think might be the reasons behind his sudden resignation or? Culturally to say, I personally am optimisic that he will withdraw his resignation. I think it as a to do with them. It's understanding over. President I visit Iran, I think present asset for my understanding. He was brought equally to your on. So that on the way and enemies of Syria would not. Carry out any operation against the president and went to from my understanding into people on the plane did not know who is getting in business class with people in business class. Oh, they bought him secretly. And then after he went directly, Peter leader and the president's. And I think that they the foreign minister wasn't informed about the meeting. But it wasn't. I think my understanding from the president's statements subsequently was that. It wasn't dependable the I'm I'm off mystic. They were withdrawn his resignation. But of course, I can't. For certain. But what do you make of the timing of this because we know his been under pressure for quite a long time and the hardliners they never liked or trusted as negotiations was the west. So why is he doing this now comfort to what we often in the western media that Iran is some sort of quo's society and these events, which is I think points out quite well that anyone there's the day open today in parliament in the media the government, and this is just one instance of that. But everyone is it's the talk of the town as they say, why deductive any design and what implications does it have before our four minutes. Of course, he has antagonise as you rightly pointed out, but I think that of the that's not the reason behind his resignation. I could. The wrong because I'm not in contact with him. Personally. I can't say I think it has to do with this issue photo call and he was upset, but I think he's general has been under pressure for the for the last few years, and this may have, you know, been the straw that broke the camel's back, but I again, as I said earlier, I think that he will probably withdraw his resignation, but is it likely that his resignation might not be accepted by president Honey or Iran, the supreme leader how many? I think that it will probably not be accepted. But again, I am I'm speculating I I don't know for certain I have no clear idea. And but it would seem to me from the statements made by president role Honey so far after his resignation that he made a speech, the central Bank, and from the language the present us, I think that he was trying to sort of convinced the the foreign minister that this was a mistaken to call or a misunderstanding. So again, I I may be wrong. But I think that this is a serious issue. Well, last we know the Reeve was Iran's leading negotiator in the twenty fifteen nuclear deal. So if his resignation is accepted how much of a blow will be for the nuclear deal, and do you think Iran will continue to comply with static women? I don't think staying. Within the nuclear deal or withdrawing from the nuclear deal will have with related to this infant, and I don't think it related to who the foreign minutes, or who even the president is I think it will depend on how the European Union functions and how they react or American. Thank Shen Iranians want to stay within the nuclear deal doctors at that that before the beater, the the form the president. And other officials have said that we're we decided to remain in greeted put the EU to the test to see if they're going to buy that commitment, so far they haven't and if they don't abide by their commitment, maybe running we'll have to change policy. But I think that is a that is a policy that goes to the very top and the national Security Council will decide on that sort of thing. And I think at this stage. No, you decision has been made on that. And I doubt that the change in policy would have anything to do with the foreign minister being doctors Addy or someone else. Well, the are suspicions Dodd the exit of those US educated diplomat could be a signal that Iran's foreign policy will start hardening as Washington has been talking about regime change. What's your take? Well, I think that you on foreign policy has already been hardening towards Washington that doesn't I don't think it has anything directly with doctors daddy's, you know, where he's an educated. I think it has to do with US behavior. The Americans have been behaving like a rogue regime. They don't buy branch or natural law. They're constantly threatening other countries from doing business with Iran or doctors Atty for four minutes or has is expresses disgust at American behavior repeatedly over the last. Few months in particular. So whether he's before minutes or not, I don't think that is going to change anything. I think that you aunts position for the United States is hot anything it has become more hard. And I think it's understandable because the because of US behavior, but I, but my hope is as I will. Withdrawn, six nature anything. Okay. But do you think his resignation? His announcement could be a win for the hotlines in the country. Well, you know, defining Iran in politics is very difficult because you know, what what are who are the hardliners who are the vodkas where these these are they term I think in general that if you if Europeans don't show real commitment, then mostly Runyan's will lose trust in this whole process altogether. And that Iran, we'll take a har- hard harder position. And I think we're already being signed to them. I think even doctors any pets shown signs event himself, if he taking a a more part is issue towards the United States, and that's understandable. Because we are writing by our commitment. Ryan government is fighting. Within the United States is, you know, withdrawn from the green tall together throwing his signature down the drain and the showing that is completely untrustworthy and the European despite good words, they basically been obeying from. So that puts the Iran in public and physician where they feel. More critical of western country. Well, how do you think the US and Israel will be reacting to this? The United States is Iran's packing. Whether doctors any remains before minister or whether he resigned permanently. I don't think that's changing policy though, their their hostilities for the country. The United States is trying to make money and stuff are their objective is who sanctions, but think ordinary people suffer as much as possible hopefully running government who economic policies and through their trade agreements with regional countries and through their good relations with friendly powers like China, Russia and others. They will be able to over come these obstacles Americans have created. But the Americans really don't care who's in charge. America's wants a week in Iran. They, you know, Americans don't care about Susan. About they want control. It's like we see in Venezuela just like on. Yeah. Man and very Iraq and Afghanistan in all these cases, the United States were trying to reimpose and are trying to reimpose their Gemini. And that's the case any run. So they will have to look for excuses excuses to justify their behavior, which is reality completely unjustified downs.

Thank you now for the global hit line survey of today. Do not estates is sending another fifty six million US dollars two neighbors of. Venezuela to help them cope with migrants fleeing from the country's political crisis. Vice President Mike Pence has also announced new sanctions on duro. Government officials speaking on Monday in Colombia at a meeting of the Lima group pens caught on all countries of the group to intensify. Efforts to isolate the Madero government. I recall all Lima group nations to immediately freeze the assets of Paige this second. We urge you to transfer ownership of Venezuelan assets in your country from the Medeiros henchmen to president. Why does government and to do so immediately? We also urge all nations present to restrict visas for Medeiros inner circle and vote to recognize president guidos Representative at the inter American development Bank. The Lima growth is a collision of mostly lenton American countries formed to address turmoil in Venezuela with more on this. We are now joined on the line by professor of juncture Shiva director of the. Sooner for London American. Studies at shown how university good evening, professor Joan. Some more sanctions and more aid at this point is Medeiros do PayPal of withstanding the attempts to isolate and bring down his government. I would assume that for the time being the model the strange in the Ken his control over the over the whole nation, but we increase of economic sanctions against that. Then as where I think the government will be faced the reason I very very difficult job. Men tanning as Danny life, most of the people because this country, depend heavily sailing all your to outside world and the now the US going to cut to. Off all the all you impacts from Venezuela. And as we know that the US is asking many other countries post talk by all your from from from Venezuela can imagine that economic hardship. We'll become more and more series. So I hope that both sides we've seen it down and talk to find a kind of decent to solution for the crushes. We be lost enforce it on the Madero government views to aid shipments by the United States as a pretext for invasion and Venezuelan soldiers have burnt some feet delivered food and medicine. But is there any on hard evidence to prove that to ages is really a form of intervention or evasion. No. First of all, we must understand that the US has imposed I kind of via economic sanctions on Venezuela on the other hand the US. It's going to offer some kind of food or medicine or other kinds of basic and so it's kind of contradiction. You know, so you really want to help the people over that the why you want to impose economic sanctions. So it's it's something quite quite quite recruit. So I think so that's the basic reason why why do says no food is kind of humanitarian aid. We've we quotation Mark. Well, there's ills vice president has said under knows expenses will Brazil allow the United States to use his territory for a military invasion of Venezuela. But we know the new resident government is seems to be a close eye on I after Trump administration. So why do we see statement? Like this from top Brazilian official. Will you know in the pasta Hof eye injury? The US the has used the military intervention against the. Against quite a few countries in the region as far as I can remember nineteen sixty five against Dominican Republic and in nineteen eighty two against a tiny country. Call the arena, the Carribean and then nineteen eighty nine against them. So people as that merica really afraid of this kind of military division by the UN. This kind of anxious will deepen the crush in Venezuela not through the question those. So that's why Venezuela and even some link group is opposed to the US intention who use military force to overthrow my. My little. And how would you come into on the behavior of Guido, so far, we know hey, house been inviting more aid into his country. And he's showing gratitude to Lima group leaders for their support of the so-called democratic calls in Venezuela. Well, this thirty five year seventy five year old boy as no experience in politics. I would agree to some of the comments made by many of the newspapers around the world. He's really a puppy of the US. You know? So I don't know really why you can really manage the economic and political life, even if he would be empowered. So I thought so I think that's why you go should sit down and have kind of a peaceful off. As a with my doodle, whereas find that kind of thing for the crisis. How realistic do you think a peaceful resolution to the crisis as possible? So far, both sides ten cannot beat the other. So I think in the end of the day, we help some kind of mediation from some countries like the like Russia, China, the veteran think Koper forty both sides can sit down and have a Cup of coffee and the find out that kind of a decent the sushi who the question. Thank you. Joe shoes should director of the sooner for Lenten American studies at Shanghai University. Come you up, you uncork autre sue k to return charges islands? Tim ratios. You're listening to today. I'm joing. We'll be back in a minute. Ever worry that you'll miss out on breaking events. Tune into today to get the latest news and analysis on the important stories in China and around the globe. Today. Eliminating the news that matters to you. You're listening to today. I'm joing. The international court of Justice is asking the UK to give up control over the cargoes islands in the Indian Ocean. The top you uncork says in a non binding advisory opinion, the UK wrongfully force the population to leave in the nineteen seventies to make way for the US air base, the advisory at a hey came after the UN general assembly asked a court in twenty seventeen to weigh in on whether the decolonization process there, it was concluded lawfully Britain's split the archipelago all from his colonial island territory of Mauritius in nodding sixty five three years before granting independence to Marissa's minus the island, the UK has been tend that Marissa's gave up the island's winning -ly while the Hake says that decision did not reflect the world of local people for more on this. We are now joined on the line by Letitia melador. Journalists of lex press immigration. Welcome to our show. Hi, good evening, everybody. So it sounds like complicated story. Basically, the Hake is saying the UK must return the islands because the decolonization process was carried out wrongfully not based on self-determination what exactly happened back then and what are the legal arguments behind the advisory of the international court of Justice. This story began in nineteen sixty one prior to the independence of Mauritius. So the van president of the US John fister. Kennedy and the British Prime minister hero McMillan made a secret political agreement. So the deal was that the Americans would set up a military base in Philadelphia, which is the biggest island of you shock, risky lagers and in exchange. The United Kingdom would get a kind of discounts of fourteen million US dollars when buying military equipment. They needed from the US before this conditions were of ghost attached to all show within would have to be expelled from their land. And it goes Asian started in nineteen sixty five the van leader of the Mauritian labour both was given a choice if not blackmailed. So the choice of that you keep Shangaans OT lagers and renowned in. Dependent all malicious get independence, but we have to handle the struggles cockatiel. So it looks like by then we we didn't know that the British could not force us to choose that. It was constitutionally illegal to the British government gave Mauritius kind of compenstation and Chagas was detached from Russia to gain independence. Now when you talk about a story containing report. So this report of the international court of Justice is clear and totally in favor of the emotion case. So the code stated does the issue of motions wasn't complete according to international laws even of our independence nineteen sixty eight to the court. Agreed. This is not a violator case in the UK and Mauritius because all you the the British shoot that Mauritian side agreed to the deal. But then, but this argument is not receivable because when Mauritius was in the table of Scotian on shockers keep. Mauritius was still a British common. The document was simply not receivable, but here, it is only a question of human rights. Well, as we know the u k as being asked to return the islands, but the advisory is non-binding. So does this sound like something the U K will do in the near future? Again, back for the British this decision is not coming at the right time, considering the Brexit. So according to me Matic negotiations still have a long way to go concerning implementation of this court ruling, but they will have to abide. I guess. The guardian says is a humiliating blow to Britain's prestige on the world stage. So how much significance does advisory from the top and court bear? Great Britain is the first to be the advocate of democracy as the US is supposed to be for human. Right. So you can choose to do nothing. But then we shall again. I was United Nations to have his decision respected and applied. So we expect you to respect this and this decision as a lot not only for Mauritians. But all eyes will be on this case, especially with the countries. Members of the United Nations that supported the motion case in the United Nations and your government says the U S military can stay even after the islands were returned what real particular importance does the US military base on the island have. So after the second World War, it was important for the US to have a base in Indian Ocean because of Soviet Union. But now, it is even more important for them to be in the Indian Ocean, considering the increasing powers that China India or becoming so they go size the best place to be to control the Indian Ocean region being in South Asia, trivia, and African cruise. Well, the Russian Prime Minister causing a historic moment, which is understandable since it is about the country's territorial integrity. But what do we know about? How those spelled islanders really think about this. The show admissions whether leaving you came Risher socialite land, I mean for them. It is very long and painful fight deeper were only all to leave their homes without prior notice the people just came in. And then hey, you have live so families. What is member? Some parents went in Ireland address were that elsewhere. So it is the home. I mean, even fifty years later, they just want to go back home. This decision represents hoop for them the hope of going back home. The marijn. It is a story about the deals between the major powers and people from smaller countries at the end of the clone era. So do you think this particular case will set an example for the rest of the world with similar on Saturday shoes? I think it can be an example because Mauritius was threatened by the US that are five could have consequences on trade between the US and Mauritius, but still we didn't stop the idea that is more country should be afraid of powers have been proven wrong to hear. I guess we are an example of laws and rights should be respected the week should not be underestimated. We didn't mean to win this fight. And we will not stop until we have back. What is ours? Thank you. Melody journalists lex press in Marissa's. Thank you for joining us this evening. Let's take short break. Still calm cardinal, George. Pell has been found guilty of sexual offence in Australia. You're listening to today. I'm joing stay with us. Hi, this is tagging the today show brings experts local and international perspectives on China's economic and business issues having been in law government and finance in the United States. I find China's economic political evolution fascinating. And hope you do. Also. Thank you for listening. Welcome back. You're listening to today. I'm joing today accord confirmed the world has loan suspected about sexual abuse of children within the Catholic church. The church's most senior cleric avert to be charged with those crimes was found. Guilty in December convicted of sexual abuse in two boys in Australia unto now, the court that tried cardinal George. Pell had ordered the media not to report the verdict. Pell was the pope's top financial advisor. And as conviction represents the most significant movement for the victims whose sexual abuse was covered up by Catholic church. For decades. The news of post conviction coincides what the pope's four-day summit of bishops to discuss how to protect minors from sexual abuse within the Catholic church that summit just concluded in Rome for more on. This are cri contributor Patrick Flannery joins us in the studio. So Patrick who is cardinal George Pell? And what can you tell? Us about the timing of the news confirming his conviction will today's news marks a milestone, a big moment for this scandal that has been unfolding for the last fifteen years or so since the Boston Globe broke the big news back in two thousand two cardinal pill was the highest ranking official within the Catholic church to ever be convicted of abusing kids and until this week. Pell was the Vatican treasurer, and that meant he was the top financial advisor to the pope, and as arch Bishop of Melbourne Australia in nineteen ninety six. He sexually abused to choirboys. Both boys were thirteen years old. Pell was fifty five at the time and at trial in December just two months ago. Pell did not testify, but had pleaded not guilty to those charges. Appel trial was heard a second time in December. That's because prior jury did not reach verdict. The second juries decision was unanimous. So we're only hearing now about this conviction because Pell was facing a second unrelated sex abuse trial in the court did not want coverage. Age of his conviction to affect future. So this was to prevent a separate trial, which will not happen from being influenced by the one in December. Let's talk about the timing of this. This is the most serious conviction ever of a Catholic cleric, and it comes right at the same time that the pope gathered about two hundred bishops from around the world at the Vatican in Rome and the scope global summit joing was the first of its kind how to prevent clergy abuse and how to protect children from those priests. Well, it appears the pope came up short on nation comfort badgers to deal with sexual abuse within the church somewhat. Pope Francis called abusive clerics, quote, the tools of Satan and promised what he called an all out battle on predators. And he told the two hundred bishops that attended words are no longer good enough. He offered them. Twenty one proposals to consider some of them would require passing new laws within the church. The Vatican said it will soon issue a law creating child protection policy. That's not been in place. Well, the sexual abuse scandal within the Catholic. Church has been going on for decades that we know about what action has the pope taken since these elections six years ago. Pope francis. I acknowledged sexual abuse within the church year after he was elected. And at that time he met with six victims from Britain, Germany and Ireland to victims from each of those nations in polish is to them recently. The pope admitted that priests had exploited nuns as sex slaves and just before the summit. The pope told the media that a brief conference the summit. He was referring to is really only the first step toward confronting and addressing the scandal. He wanted to warn the media that no tremendous change would come immediately following the summit, but he is now pledging no more cover-ups, no more protecting priests. No more silencing the victims. His first course of action came earlier this month in fact when the pope expelled an American cardinal for sexual abuse. Where in the world has the most abuse of children been happening within the church, mostly in the US, Ireland in Australia in the US. Catholic population is about one in five people. It's about seventy million people Australia's where cardinal Pell committed those acts against the two boys in the ninety s one in five Australians Catholic, it's about the same twenty percent five million people there the country's ABC network reported that a five year long inquiry found tens of thousands of children talking about stralia had sexually abused a church it school at orphanages and before Pell's conviction in December the most high profile one that was of an archbishop convicted of convicted of concealing pedophilia. So he was hiding for the church, and he successfully appealed that conviction in the end what happened to the two children. Hell abused more than twenty years ago. One of those victims has since died at happened about five years ago of a heroin overdose. He did not make a formal complaint to the church did not complain to his family. The survivor is now thirty four years old. And he testified the cardinal Pell orally raped him if. Donald his genitals at church, a recent report from the industry magazine psychology today states that priest celibacy we're talking about abstaining from sex. This does not turn people into sex offenders automatically does not make you a predator of children just as being a gay cleric would not mean you are also a pedophile. These are stereotypes and do not represent the reality necessarily of what's happening in secret within the church for very long time. So depending on whom you ask that abuse has existed for centuries Linden the abuse scandal scandal become known throughout the world. Well, became known really in two thousand two that is when the Boston Globe investigation investigative unit began reporting this blue the story wide open, and there's a movie based on this. Excellent cult spotlight. It took best picture the Oscars couple of years ago. And what those reporters did was expose systemic abuse culture within the church that would never have come to light if not for journalism, and you know, we hear all the time. President Trump calling the media the enemy of the people. This is one of those examples where reporting where journalism compelled victims to come forward compelled, the pope to convene the summit and compelled Catholics around the world to sort of consider it what's been condoned for too many years last year, the Pennsylvania supreme court also revealed its own major investigation results conducted by the state attorney general and it named three hundred priests accused of child sex abuse by more than thousand victims throughout the state. What happens next with Catholic cardinal Pell? Colonel Pell is expected to be sentenced later this week. And of course, he'll no longer be a cardinal. He's appealing the conviction. He says he's innocent. But a jury determined otherwise in December he faces fifty years in prison, which at age seventy seven will mean the rest of his life. We wanna point out. This is progress the church now officially recognizes its failures in the painted has inflicted and covered up for four two. Along. The pope says he's determined to stop this abuse. That has destroyed a children's lives their families, faith and also tested the legacy of the church itself. Thank you, Patrick all the time. We have for.

Through the Lens of the the good in the beautiful. and I like to start out kind of getting those by asking. If you remember when you were growing up. What would give you a deep sense of wonder about the world? But a lovely question. I feel very fortunate. Then I was bored into a context. Where that was, there was space for wonder. My. Mother was an educator Piano Teacher. My father was a theologian. There was. From early odds somehow perhaps for that. Context perhaps. Stat genetic makeup. I? I lived in the world with a sense of wonder. And with a with also. Being drawn to sort of the deepest questions, even as a young child. and. You wondering at. A with amazement at the beauty of the world, and also quite aware of of suffering and wondering why. Why so? but Perhaps, because of my context nature. And Music. And human love. Human relationship. We're all sources of. Of wonder also I mean. You know growing up in that context I remember. Very young child. Sitting on my bed in the dark at night. You know. What is God. AD. I was hearing. You know in my faith context about this person. You know the. The Christ Jesus Christ. And as as a little girl, you just. Just walk into my room and show yourself. So what happened? There was this great wonder at mystery. Also like. Just. It seemed. There was an expectation that this would be shown and. You know I remember period night after night of waiting and strangely never. I can't remember feeling dashed or disappointed or angry. EW It just somehow what came out of that was a sense as I grew that The the questions themselves. The seeking itself. Had A value in a life to it. that. While! You know it's genuine seeking. It it has. That they're real. Place of value might be and very asking the question. that. That's where we have our life. And that it was okay that this mystery was big enough to contain all of that and. Kind of continue to draw. Draw said. How old were you when you were starting to think through? I remember the evenings. Nights about five. Five five. Remember that continuing. My father was a professor at Stanford when I was young child. Religion Department and then moved the family to Nashville, Tennessee. which was tough? You know for kids. To join the faculty at Vanderbilt Divinity, school, so I can kind of track. Being eight and still. Having experience of waiting in the dark. See you now have PhD in Biblical interpretation. You're also zen master in the sandbox Cuban tradition. You continue to work at a Christian University in Texas so it's a wide variety of things happening in A. Curious here a little bit more about your spiritual roots kind of what tradition you raised, and then how those roots of kind of grown out to where you are now, yes, I one correction and Part of the sun bows in tradition and that tradition I. My title is Associate Send Master. So there you know in this Japanese way, there is a progression through the practice and so it's it's not an. Say. She but there is a distinction there. Yeah so as I, said I I grew up in A. Really bored into what I would call it progressive. Protestant religious tradition so Christian faith was See very natural. it was a faith of exploration one very much tied to social justice and. Church and community and and a sense that God is love. were were Kinda bred in the bone. Never with proselytizing I wasn't forced. but I did grow up with the sense that You know there was this. Fundamental reality that Christian faith was. Opening Up, you know to me, and in the world. Of. You are might be love it. This. This sense of Unconditional love. At the same time. It would be quite unusual i. think to grow up. No matter when circumstances a matter. The privilege. You know having experiences that wound us. And that cut us off and that Make us. Feel separated and. Lacking Yudo. That sense of lack that just goes to the heart Oh at so at the same time, but I thought this unconditional love is a beautiful idea, and in some way real in this world, but not for me. Either there's just that gap. Not Quite. And I went off to college. I was. In, love with classical music by then and pursued that. And carried with me into that. A sense of lack. I remember my. My mother, had, taken a You know a little card a blank. Card and written on. It something about unconditional love you. Unconditionally no matter the circumstances, no matter and however she put that in a beautiful sentenced to I, had put it up on the mirror in my dorm room. But but somehow it there was the struggle to feel. Completely included in that love. and. So. Fast forward, you know Career in classical music Help me find my way. of all places that brought me to Dallas Texas. for work. and Lo and behold I found the Maria can nonsense eter with Ruben Hobby Toro. She the guiding teacher. didn't I had had an experience I think. As a teenager. Actually of The world that is in points to. But I had no context for unpacking that for understanding that. I had. Dabbled in meditation and College I. Went to Oberlin College where this? You know these kinds of practices and Inter religious understandings and Everything was going on. There was all available. But I hadn't really found a practice and. through music I. was led to this. Amazing. Opportune moment finding myself at the Zen, center, receiving introduction and feeling. Really at home, knowing that this practice was something that I. Absolutely needed to. No matter. How it went. Yeah, I kept at it. And As one does months in I signed up for what's called a session? an intensive period practice. Actually it was early enough on in my practice I didn't really know. It sunk in. What that that session that intensive retreat would be? so I showed up portions it was. Far enough drive out of town that I didn't feel I. could just look at the schedule? Think I can't do that and Turner and out. There I was. I was so. Great I was. We were all arranged in. A big Sendo is kind of a cinderblock building was turned into Zenda with a little altar down at the front and and. Unusually no other emblems often these retreats are held and. You know former! Comments or monasteries, so there are Christian symbols around, and in this case that wasn't so so it was really empty, space and I was seated between I remember to. TAP INTO BE TALL men. Long time practitioners. So In my sort of Wow. How am I going to do this? Eight and a half hours of sitting day. All United how? I was seated between. It felt like two pillars. and. I was working on this. Initial co on that is so. Integral to the Zen traditions, ancient choline and At one. The one that I was given was. Joe Shoes Mu. To smooth does a dog have Buddha nature or knocked? You this great? Aid Century Master says. Boo! So the invitation to the student is to sit with that. Breeds Mu Walk Moon nothing but move. That's there's a lot that can be said about that, but. In the context of that session a few days in. Know before there was any chance to have some expectation. I was sitting and Had the sense while. Sitting of I guess you could say an apparition a vision some this figure. White sort of figure appeared before me. And Even in that context and having actually been. away from the church, not out of rebellion just. Circumstances for some time. What what came to me in that moment of this? Facing this figure was That's Christ. Almost immediately. I heard the words. This is my body. Utterly transfixed. This is my body and after I don't know a few moments. I'm not sure how long. The thought came. That's blasphemy. This is my body. So immediately, it all went away. and Fairly soon. Yeah. Did you take that to mean? This! This of everything or it fell on me in the sense of this one sitting here, assure this everything, but really this one. This is my body. You know. What's happening right now? and. You know I wouldn't have separated. I wouldn't have said Oh. Until the thought that's blast with me when that came up, it's like Oh. This Valerie is the body of Christ like there's some equation there. You don't, but actually the experience was. Nothing, but this very body sitting there. Is The body of Christ. So! The bell rang in. We bowed and we. Stood in the clapper's sounded and we slowly started this. Walk Kalkin Hin. you know. The the ongoing silent walking meditation. and. Ever about forty people so is a big circle. This room and down at the end was this altar. Where there had been a long a photo, a picture in a frame of my teachers, teacher, Monaco and Roshii. and He's you know. Someone I've had such respect for I had read about him in the three pillars of Zen just the fact that he was my teachers teacher. Great respect. But in that face was just had been for me and inscrutable Japanese face. And where were walking and Kim Hin and In somehow walking past the alter. My I just happened to. Just, glance at the photo disc-, catch a glimpse of it. By chance. And sadly. This compassion was just pouring out of his face. Adan. The sense was I understood. I understood why. Not In some rational sense, but there was just. This understanding. And pretty soon we went back began the next head, and before long I happened to be tapped to go and see the teacher. and. Fortunately, there was a because it was a large session. There was a row of five mats in lying to see the teacher. And I'm just sitting there without. Really with this Moo what is Moo what is Moo? But all the while these tears kind of cunning, running down my cheeks. Quiet? And By the time I got to the Matt right outside the door in my lap was wet. But the last thought I had was I'll never get this. Did, what what is Moo? This question, this deepest question this sort of. Opening question. The fundamental matter. Where that came from now as a teacher, it's so common I hear over and over I'll never can't this. And there's something about that. Surrender That is. Part of the path. I went in and I sat down in front of my teacher in front of Ruben and. He said what's happening? I said nothing. And then. I suddenly recalled. And said well I was sitting in this figure appeared in heard these words and. Then I had this thought it all went away. I walked by the you know I just recounted, and as I did that, it opened up. This space that had. Just this vast space that opened up in a very intimate way, and he asked me at that moment. What is Moo? And it just came. It came without. Not from discursive place was just in the most natural way, and then it comes with a lot of checking questions, and we were suddenly just with his guidance plunged freely into this world. Rather just is no separation. And you know if I could now stepping back from that. you know. One way I might describe what happened. Was this shift? From unconditional love as something that. You have. It's not something we have. It's what we are. At at that came home in a way that has just it just doesn't leave. It's not to say your practice is forever lifetime. Forever and ever at always opening new horizons. But that's shift. But we cannot fall out of this that in a sense, it's our birthright. It always simply what we are. That came home in a way that I would call the great relief. So. Without any? You know beyond anything I could possibly concoct. This merging in a sense of Christian faith and Sen. awakening. Just unfolded. In that particularity. Yeah. That point you had not. Started your studies in Biblical interpretation. Yeah. That's right so I. Continued of course, this launched me into practice any now. My practice can begin. When feels that over and over? And this practice ad so. That retreat. was in the fall and about. Four months later I. Basically got off my. Christian Wendy and heard myself say out loud I think I'll go back to school. Oh really. and. What had come up with a sense of? Wanting to find Christian language. To. Interpret what had happened and then to be able to share? With Christians this practice. Because, it had been so liberating. Ed and really innocence opened the gate for me to find a embrace my own Christian. Innocence background inheritance. So. I thought well I'll just go to school and get a masters of theological studies There's a place. About fifty minutes for my house, and in a divinity school that happen to have its own heritage, and the tradition I grew up, in which is the Christian Church, disciples of Christ, and I knew some of the faculty there who had actually been students either of my father at. The school where he taught I'd even. When I googled that place, and it just felt like the commitments of the institution to Social Justice and this sort of. Progressive Theological study, but included my own concerns for. Feminist interpretation. For Concern. For reading on the margins. For Persons of Color for. For Persons. LGBTQ. Identity, I needed a place I needed to study these tax and these. Theological! Sort of rubrics for this framework in a context that was clearly supportive of all. Of Humanity. And the schools seem that to me so applied and I started at at the time I was continuing to play as a professional musician. continued that. One thing led to another I I much to my surprise. Kind of fell in love with With the Hebrew language. which had never studied before? With what's called the Hebrew Bible. And with. Questions about Literary theory, which all resonated so deeply for me with this zen practice. The linguistic construction of meaning for one thing that just that's just. Ito. Was So exciting to you know that we are the stories that we tell. And how are we creating this world through language At. And then theologically what? What does it mean to say? It is no longer I who live, but Christ who live in me and and the sense from zen practice that is so clear that either there's this death. And Life. And, that's the heart of it. You know what? What this great thirteenth century Master Dogo called Life Death One. He put a hyphen their life death. So that. That fundamental question belongs to both of these traditions and to be able to wrestle with that, and and and then began to unpack it through the reading of texts. and. And, actually looking at language and the way it requires the gap to make meaning `to. So fascinating to look at that what it is to be human to be linguistic creatures at the same time that I'm doing this practice where you can absolutely see through the gap. Zinn! GONE WORDS LADDERS Yet when you see that words are also it, you know. So it's. It was just this. Path that naturally one thing led to another. Talk about wandering into the of the circle of wonder. That's master once she put it that way. It's wonder. that I could explore in these ways and so the door opened to enter the PhD program there. In Hebrew Bible, which by then was my area of? And it. Strangely, seemed just opportune. Why not I mean I! Don't recommend that actually. I don't i. I, don't think. that. That's the normal reason to do a PhD. Yeah! Know I had the privilege of having this other career of other means of support. So. It was possible to do this out of sheer interest. Just. A love of language Pursuit of the intersection of all of these interests of what it is to be human. and. At a way to kind of cultivate. As it turns out. Zan practice and and sent teaching. I feel it's. It's really fueled that and along the way it gave me a second career. which happened to be very convenient and the timing and just? How. Interesting is that to have the chance? That our lives to To do thing thoroughly as a career, and then to Shan't food and have this whole other arena of of your work life that is. Not unrelated but really fresh different. He'd. I was an administrator in a theological Graduate Theological School for eleven years. I've just retired in January rather ironically. From that work to devote myself full-time. twos and Training ends and teach. You just stopped working at the Cote did yes, yes. Just so I had. I had all of this travel. scheduled. The opportunities were were just sort of coming in and it was. It felt like. I was holding back the floodgates for awhile aid. The Grad School where I worked was incredibly flexible about allowing me to travel. For Teaching and you know to work around the edges of what was a very demanding job, but finally it just felt like it's time now. I can now do this and so I retired in two. Months of schedule of traveling for to lead this session. Cody, this session work at this place or just practice in this place I mean I. I went to New Mexico I went to Germany for three weeks went back to new. Mexico I was headed to Florida group lead there. I was scheduled for a month in Germany and May and you know about a month ago. Everything ceased. Its stopped. and. So then I had the. Opportunity like so many of us to. Sit with disappointment. At five new ways you well. Now what do we do? How do we reach out? How do we connect What's? What is the wonder of this? Really. Exactly this where we. At at at. It took a little bit I was quite disappointed. Because I had waited so long. For the opportunity I think and when it took off, it was, it was really an incomparable joy. To do this thing and. To begin to grow more in it To offer. What's what's mind to do in these various contexts? Ad then you know. Just all canceled I founded a really. Really Compati- teacher. That disappointment and maybe that's again coming from a place of privilege. because I have a house where I can. Take shelter. Enough resources right now. I could see that disappointment. Has An agenda right. Thanks, there's a plan that ought to happen. That's been cut off. and. That's construct. Really sat with it, you what? What could be more alive? More dynamic. More complete more calling to us. Then this. Place where we stand. It led me to reflect on. Again perhaps a kind of privilege, but I think a real pointer from this practice. The A contrast between. Loneliness. Which? I know so many people are suffering from a practice perspective you, that's a little. That's like disappointment. That has an agenda. That thinks it knows. What would be better than this? Whereas solitude. Includes everything. But externally they look very similar at time. Would you connect that to? Kind of? Bigger issue that the Buddha was getting. In looking at suffering where the? The main. Pain will come, but then you extend this pain by. By, not wanting in in some sense by not just accepting what it is by wanting something other than what that pain is. Yeah I connected very much to that suffering. Compassion. Fairly long ago. Coming out of this practice started. Giving myself this sort of instruction when your heart is breaking. Let it. Break all the way open. All the way that they're. So there. We really look into this. Pain and suffering. It's you know we. It's the suffering of the whole world first of all. And that. Realization that you know hearing the cries of the whole world then this. This becomes of a piece with compassion. At An IT A- then I. We think will. How can I bear the suffering of the whole world? You. Can't you can't? This wide open heart. Is Limitless. there's just no boundary. There's no container so it. It allows this suffering. To be of a peace with a boundless compassion. That is. At the heart at this practice. I. I really like. At have been SORTA reminded of title of a book by James Forida. MASTER IN A. Very close tradition to sign bows in. Some ago. He wrote a book entitled Lucky. Your heart. Will break. And it's his sense story really at that point early on, and he tells an experience of his own awakening just. The most simple circumstances. And, it's in a way of having this sense of being kind of closed down of things are right. They're not as they should be, and then suddenly being met. I suppose you could save by the extraordinary beauty. He Stirring This thin soup you know for the meal, which is also very unhappy about right. And up comes. Just a little wilted leaf have cabbage. And suddenly. Just the. You know extrordinary Pudi of that one wilted leaf of cabbage. A good friend and other. Associates master in this tradition who? a few years ago, we were enjoying a meal together and just in the conversation in the course of the conversation, he said. People cannot tolerate the beauty of thanks. And that the coversation went on I had. I have left with that just carrying it. And sort of sitting with it will. Why is that what is that? and. To really, See Beauty. South has to recede. It is sense you disappear. The beauty disappears you. It's just that. That happened to. John Ishmail Fort when he saw? That cabbage leave. So this for maybe a roundabout way of talking about this suffering that is so at hand now. I feel it is one and the same. With compassion. And out of that then. We find what is our to do? This is not. Awakening into some Shangri la that takes you out of the world. It's world. Exactly, this world! This broken world. That for myself needs to break. All the way open. It seems. That this time! Is Kinda primed for those kinds of? Openings Maybe that you are stuck. He can't be thrown into. For a lot of us can't be thrown into. All of the things that are normally. Distracting you from? The beauty of everything I think and. It it starts encroaching, and you can kind of fight it off for find me. Finally see it or have breakthrough in these these moments. That's beautifully put yeah. It starts encroaching. I mean. There is no way to Make something grandiose of this global pandemic. And yet. The Global. For for many of us, what's global, pause? And this great. Uncertainty this great, not knowing is a is a chance. Certainly. Plunge us into practice. I would think in whatever tradition. When can find? That is fitting it. Opens up the possibility of making a different kind of world. Speaking of practice are. Could you just tell a bit about? What does then practice looks like for you and your tradition sure. So you know the fundamental. The core the heart. The ground was in is Saizen is sitting meditation practice which is practice. Which is skews me posture, breathing and stilling the mind these three basic elements. And you know went, finds a posture conducive to balance to still us kind of alignment to really being in the body being grounded. Normally kneeling. It can be kneeling on a mat and a cushion. It can be if someone is flexible you know. The the the oldest tradition was sort of Full Lotus Yudo are hat leathers. That's what Duggan. Teaches his monks, are you? There's a some people can sit cross, legged, but with both lake sort of on the Mat. Kneeling is helpful position. Some people use a bench which is fine like a small prayer bench to kneel on. A chair as also fine it's. it's not about enduring pain. Yeah in fact. Finding posture. That's conducive. With as little pain as possible conducive to this awareness, concentration practice, really being present following the breath. That's what I would go for so. I once heard. The Abbot of Sambo's in teaching an introduction does into some college students out in California and he taught posture breathing stilling the mind. At the end that one of the young students said well, which is most important. City there. I think he's going. Say stilling the mind because that's challenging. And he said posture. So that first element of finding this posture. Somehow. Your knees. If you're on a mat, are are on the Mat. so there's a tripod. Between your you know your. Your sits bones and your knees, and and then you can find this. Balance With the upper body that allows the chest. The head to gradually rise up. You know there. There are a number of fairy helpful introductory. You can Google Online and get lots of instructions about that various postures. If you're in a chair feet flat on the floor back a little away from the chair There's a a hand, position and blue dread that. We use in some bows in. That's very common That is right handed in the laugh lap. To resting in the lap, left hand on top, and the thumbs slightly touching, so it almost forms. A kind of a heart. The thumbs are very near the the naval or the HARA. I've come to move very much. Appreciate that position though I know, there are others. And Mrs Simply. For someone who feels Having struggling with the shoulder, sometimes we'll suggest just laying your hands in your lap I mean it's it's. It's not A. You know it's a very helpful for. But not at all a straight check. so then. Breathing is just following the breath. When I sit I. Take a few I i. sit down I Iraq a little bit. I find my poss- Chirac little. Left, right back and forth from back so I really find that fulcrum that sense of century. And then I take a few deep breaths to begin. And then I just saddle into. Natural breathing. Breathing in I, if in less than terribly congested breathing through the nose. With the mouth gently closed so it's very helpful to notice the. If there's any tension in the jar the throat let that open. It's very helpful to kind of do a scan re just balanced. I remember so many times. My teacher, saying fully relaxed fully alert. Over time the breath naturally seems to slow down. It naturally seems to deepen. But. I'm not. Necessarily making that happen. I just pre. And then stealing the mind. Thoughts arise. sometimes this is like an to sitting like a mountain. And the thoughts pass by like clouds. So the invitation is as soon as you notice a thought. Rather than trailing after it or sticking to her, adding to like. You, know beats. Putting beads together. On a piece of string. You chasse as soon as the thought. You noticed thinking just returned to the breath, so you just release it. like a cloud. Passing by. In this time especially. But it's not unique to this time. Sometimes, people get very quiet and things come up. If it's. If it's really important matter One Way. To deal with that is to maybe have a pad of paper next Hugh, and actually jot it down so that you won't spend the rest of the period of sitting ruminating on that, but you acknowledge this is something to tend to affect. Some people get great ideas while they're sitting. So rather than having to sit there, remembering the idea or developing the idea, you just ride it out. Returned to the breath. If. Sometimes anxiety! Comes up, and it usually comes in the form of constriction. Somewhere in the body. Just to notice that and breathe into it. Again I wouldn't discursive -ly analyze it. That's not the practice. But just. Allow some space surrounded. and. Again it it. It can be thought after sitting. You know it can hear other. They're very helpful ways to help to explorer and help us address anxiety at what might be pointing to. But, on the cushion Just to notice the construction and return to the breath allow some space. Breathe into it. You know some teachers and I. I really appreciate. It just flooded with loving kindness. Dokan in his universal instructions said. Take backward. Step and shine the light in. Some translations say learn the backwards step and shine a light in. That light itself at shining through that constriction and it will us. My experiences, it will dissolve. At like this phrase. Said is a solvent I think I. Think I I heard. Father Kennedy years ago another. Sin! Teacher Sambas in tradition. Say That, but said is a solvent. Dog and actually.

Cs Lewis Talks about in. A book called the Great Divorce. Which is interesting book? It's kind of a allegorical. Really an allegory bates. Basically he's he's imagining what it would be like to go into hell and into heaven, but there these very interesting ways of thinking about it like hell. Is this vast grey city where? Everyone just keeps moving away from each other. Just endlessly to the horizon and there. which is this very fascinating way? Basically, it's everyone who's there is choosing.

Explained Mu a little bit for for people familiar takes so this is another the pasture breathing's stilling. The mind is the basics of sitting. In Sombo Zen tradition We are a combination of the Soto and the rinse size schools so. The Soto School is. Just saying that's something to be explored and and many people are drawn to that the. School has this long tradition of koan study? and. that was very compelling for me. When I was given that I call on new. It felt as though I been given this jam. It's sometimes described as the sword this great sword of Mu. That can cut through in the entangling vines cut through our delusions. You know that Cohen. Monk comes in all earnestness. An ASS does a dog have Buddha, nature or dot. This monk would have. Come unquestionably. Fervor Tradition Buddhism. where? It's absolutely fundamental to that air every. Everything every sentient beings, certainly I would say everything has buddha nature. So. He would have in some sense. He would have carried that with him. That Tenet. Maybe like carried unconditional love as a tenant. But he. Does a dog. Maybe you could say. He's asking about those lowly creature in China. They were really dogs were not well regarded. That day. Rabies asking about, himself. To I. Have this awakening nature. That's all that Buddha. Nature means wakened awakening nature to high. Joe Shoe says in you and Chinese. It would have been woo. W.? transliterated. Which means literally no. Nothing not having. White can look into that. In myriad ways. The first week. I sat with this code. I B I was driven. I was hair on fire. I remember. Day night. What is move? What is that's the question what is? What is what is Mu Negative? What is that Mu what is? and. I about seven days I was driving home one day. From this graduate school. Get to stop light and realize sooner. What is what is and I? Really I was giving myself a terrible headache. So it was it was a wonderful moment I've just. Kind of. Almost slamming into the wall of our discursive mind at limitation. That is just not what this is about and is so helpful to have that exhausted. To. Run into that limitation so I. Think you said You know like like this? Like this pandemic has sort of put us in this place where we're. Facing us, you know you're you ran into that limitation and then you began to just. Breathe Mu some people. It's just every acceleration sitting. And let you walk. Let booed. Talk. Let drive. Some teachers say live the life of Mu. You could say well. It's sort of like a mantra but it. If you practice with. It that that's just scratching the surface. It's a solvent. It's a penetrating son. kind of a way to. Get! At, seeing or experiencing. Non Duality and everything es. When I say solvent. I mean our concepts are assumptions. Of course are constrictions, but what is all that you know? It's like the scaffolding of I me mine. That is. Fundamentally based on the sense of separation I here and you are there. And out of that I. Concoct this identity that I then feel compelled to defend. I'm insecure. You know that I've separate Ed, so there's this thing I have to. You know sort of. Hold up in the world. And that's threatened. All the time. In some way you know it's, it's like a A scaffolding and also it's wall. and We could say our identity our. Our sense of separation. Fundamentally. And so students who work with mu or maybe. Another there other. Cohen's that are sometimes given initially will come up against this middlebury. They'll encounter fear of letting go. You, if I if I let this fall. If I if I let go of that separate self. Then what? Yeah and That is really Fertile ground. To encounter that fear. And let yourself sit with it and real. You might come to see that from the beginning. Our hands are empty. that. There really is nothing to defend. It might come through just as you said a glimpse. Of, this non dual world, this one world. Yomata conroe she who I mentioned before. Likened are. Her experienced to. Living as an a, Glass Room darkened room, darkened glass. and. This practice with sitting. Maybe with Mu. Maybe with. Who here's there other ways? gradually. The glass get slider. And then maybe in some sudden moment there'll be. Like a pinprick. Through the glass. And you see. This whole world out there. You get you get a glimpse of this world. And actually there, then, maybe not even an here out there. You know, and and then over time with practice some for some people it's as though that little opening just like Lynn's that just widens and widens and winds. Until finally. It falls away. Completely. For some. The House collapses. And then everything! Comes rushing them. Look Image. So when you're sitting. You're be clear mind. And then are you always do proceed to Cohen or do you? Like when? How do you decide like what you said? You kind of a mix of these two schools. There's a a so to speak curriculum. That's one way of calling it a a series of coins, these different volumes we start after an initial. Awakening experience that that collapsing that non dual world is this oneness empty infinite oneness. Timeless Boundless World of equality and equanimity and dynamism, a taste of that launches a student. can. If. They're drawn to it. into. This whole process of Koan study and we start with West called miscellaneous cards, and then there's the a book, called the gate `less gate or Mohmand con-. You know about forty eight Cohen's and then there's the blue clip record or Heke Gone Roku and then there's the book of Equanimity the book of serenity the show, euro, Roku, and then the Dinka Roku finally transmission of light, which of these beautiful exchanges between Master and At the moment of awakening this so to speak transmission so. Myself, because I was quite taken with Cohen's I found them. Very very helpful I mean. I flew to them though they can become founding, and and it's so helpful when you come to one that you get stuck, know there's other really good ones. Actually it's. There's a certain kind of agony because when someone wants to see this world and the world that is really. Opened up in these 'cause. You know if you're. If you look at them from outside they they look like offense, just nonsense really. and. From. The World of that. I've been describing here. They're they're so natural. You they they really. It's like getting to see this Oh. And this and this each one just clarifies it and the masters are all here sort of keeping company. It's like this great. Crowd of witnesses in a sense, right here with us and so so through that practice I've. You know I've done that curriculum. twice with my own teacher at another time with another teacher and And my experience of it was I I would. Do My daily sitting and have have read the CAW and be kind of holding the Cohen and my heart mind. But not necessarily sitting. You know only focused on Bat. I one teacher liken it to hanging on a hook in the back of the room of your practice. And then sometimes it imposes itself. It'll just. Come right there. And in time it's you don't figure it out. That doesn't work. It's just even if you can't figure it out. It's. It's like dry gruel in a bowl, and the teacher can see that and we'll. Help, you. Will ask a question that that throws you off that perch. Makes it fresh. I now am. Continuing. I have a gun now and then that comes up, but I often now in my practice and just sitting. Just sitting or Really just sitting with the Living Cohen. Of. Pandemic global pandemic. Whatever's at hand. When I guide students. Some, are in this really thriving. By. You know taking up the Cohen's one by one in this particular order. And and some find that that. They don't resonate particularly you know. It throws them into a place of anxiety, or or into discursive mind in a way that is just not helpful to their practice, so they they find home. In just sitting. And they still come to A. You know what we call on this face to face. They can still find A. Just A. Face to face encounter around practice can be very helpful, but we're not respite. Raise the question of a coli or just span practice. The. the just sitting sounds. Pretty similar to. I've been practicing. Centering prayer recently At the only difference I think would be the. Centering prayer doesn't even focus on breath, but it's. That seems like a small issue it because in the end. The breath is. When I've sat focused and breadth that becomes. Background, too. So, for for me, I mean. Centering prayer is so close to this and. I I had a chance at my school when I was teaching to. The Grad school to teach. a course at prayer across traditions and we looked at. Christian contemporary practices and send practice and students got to taste these and look at the similarities and differences, but what you just described about the breath I mean. That's your experience. Another way I might put that as. The breath can open up in a way where there's nothing that's not the breath. I'm trying to like the contrast. Because on a surface level, it sounds similar and I'm sure you have a better insight into it but the. The Way I've heard it described as centering prayer is Intention based like the only thing you're doing is intending to. Not hold onto any thoughts. And then breath focus attention. You are giving attention. Positively to. The breath. which seems to lead to similar places, but I don't know. What other differences you'd see between those practices and why prefer does in practice. The word that comes to mind for me and centering prayers emptying. emptying. And that. Is Resonate so deeply with what what we're doing in the sent practice. What are the differences? I mean the Forbes I've been Quite taken. Especially during this time with how often I've heard. Send Teachers. In the West. Where where it's now so? You fertile. Use The word love. Perhaps in sin. I. This is just for myself. I might say. love without substance. Love without. You could say subject object. Just this this. Love. Beyond knowing and not knowing. You know it's. And Yet Love is. Is the word that comes up. You know seeking for words. K. It's beyond words, but somehow. We keep returning to this word love. In centering prayer, it may be an you could answer this of. That that love. And that emptying is. More understand itself more as emptying into. It, how would you describe? That love. Are you soaking in. It is a bad lewis timeless. I don't know that's that's. It seems to me, The big thing that a lot of meditative practices are getting at is. I guess you're saying that the solvent like the disillusion of. How strongly the EGO is holding on. To its separateness and so. I think. From My. Experience in different practice. A lot of them are getting their kind of different means. I mean, can you? Just, that cannot survive love. It can't. Win The love fills up. There's there's nothing outside it. It is. This whole one existence and what you called Ego, you know that that sense of separateness that we hold onto. Just can't. Really can't survive that love. At the same time when you see that even in it is love every that that compassion you know. that. Once we. Fall into this. Even at our anxieties, our sets of separation our sense of inadequacy. That's. Nothing, but above. That line nothing can separate you from the love of God and Christ Jesus. For me, that is so big. That I couldn't imagine. Saying well unless you sign on the dotted line. Of Christian faith, you're not included that. It's interesting. Seeing so I was raised in a pretty conservative Christian. Setting. and. Having kind of deconstructed reconstructed a lot of. ways that I look at. The world and the divine and certain things like. what you just said. Nothing can separate you or I. I hadn't thought about the I no longer live Christ lives in me. those kind of things. Take on a new beauty seeing them from a different. Angle whereas at least from me like. The under Senate I'd been. Kinda given for those things. I always felt very small an and limiting limited. and seeing it. I guess as bigger picture. Nothing could be less limited than sing it from from that perspective work. That understanding of Christ in all things. That you, it's not you no longer being, but it's You opening up to. The whether you are connected to everything. Yeah, I curious I'm sorry. I just wanted to say. What are the most meaningful aspects of my work at this? Graduate Theological School I interviewed every student who applied to be admitted. Usually face to face or On A. On my platform. Most often face to face with campus visit. And I was also the kind of open door for students there who were struggling and I saw so many people. Go through of their own unique repeatable version. Of coming up in a very limiting very judgmental. Christian context. Sometimes so violently rejected by that very context you that that that home so they they were forced to leave and then. You know the bravery and creativity of. Going through that. Deconstruction. And Finding One's way. To a faith that is. free liberated. That cannot exclude anyone. By its very definition by the fact of what it is, you know this love. I. Really appreciate the work you're doing. And the process you've gone to it. It just reminds it just hugs me because I've I've seen. a number of stories of people who. You know even. Left that and came back and are in training. You're. Out in the world, being pastors or chaplains counselors. And you're doing that in A. In a very creative way. Think. Yeah, I think a big part of why I'm. Doing this one reason is I get to talk to interesting people, which is fun but Is that it? I want I like that little spaces that I've found. Someone had gone a little bit before in a certain direction was so life-giving. Oh! There are options of ways of thinking because I think that's what. Stopped me so many times before when I'd come to a wall was. I only saw two. Options and both problematic, but I wanted to hold on to goodness truth and beauty and I thought the only way I could do. It was hold onto this whole. Chunk of other things and so I kept doing that. But not realizing there was so much. So many new paths of seeing everything so. I think just hearing people's stories and. Even for me I didn't know. Like. It growing up, there was like the Christians in our camp and then. You would hear about like the liberal Christians or something, but like they basically might as well have not believed in the same God like it's. It was like the that's real bad over there. As I didn't understand this barrage. Breadth I've. Even with the Christian faith. Little on again. Ways that you can see the interactions between. When I listen to anyone of any talking now like there's so much that I can see. I. Don't know share all of the backgrounds, or even some of the more literal belief they have there's there's so much beauty and so much residents and. All of the ways that these things have been formed over time. Yeah I would agree and. What a world if we could Open our eyes to that more and more that we see, so we can begin to hear these resonances. Appreciate them even in the midst of our differences. But I think that would go a long way. To! Helping US nut There's sort of reactive as you as you said. There's an edifice constructed, and you feel like if any part of that gets. Pulled out like a house of cards or You know it's all going to fall and yet. So, we relate to one another through fear and through judgment. At if if we could just. Pause that and allow ourselves to. Acknowledge and Listen to the ways that the resonances. I. I think this could. Transforming, and so I'm hopeful because I know that's happening in some. In, many ways around the world. You know you asked about. Centering prayer and sin and. I responded in a way to the emptying. I would at the same time. Not Want to take from centering prayer its. BEAUTY IN A. Practice. Utah, it's I am not I wouldn't say oh. These are the same. You know I. I think this process of emptying. There's only. Emptying into what from what I mean, there's just one. But the paths. You know they have their distinct characteristics and. I obviously have. I mean I just have these roots in Christian faith at? That show themselves in various ways, but Zinn has called my name. And so you know why that I mean. I can do no other. You know it's just. A great gift and perhaps something of a mystery. How how? I, you might ask yourself. How could we be so? Lucky. To find this path. There Times where I actually feel. It Oh this I was born. At I, don't there's nothing grandiose about that my goodness? You know we're always beginning a beginner's mind is. Just the fact. And it's shown. Moment to moment. But at the same time, it's like I I could never have imagined a life. Of such meaning and Opportunity And It's sort of infinite possibility. And in that sense, you're saying tied to your practice, yes. this particular path. That I happened you could say perhaps. You know. That was there at just the right time in the right place? I don't. I. Don't know why, but I'm just I mean. There's this Japanese poem my teacher. would quote often early on in. My practice at translation anonymous. I don't know the reason why. But Tears of gratitude fall for my eyes. Feel like that's That's a good place to wrap it up. I appreciate so much you taking the time. The first. Person Than A. or even broader Buddhist tradition. That I've been able to have on so. Value Having your perspective on that and. Thank you Justin and Somehow you know when you contacted me. Some months ago, I was traveling right. I was launched into that and this seemed so far away, and we had at the time I had no clue when this conversation would fall that it would be in the midst of social isolation. Honestly.
