"Impacting. Your Life in those around you and helps you trace them back to the activating event that caused you to behave a certain way and help change your relationship between those two things so that you might experience that activating event later at a later stage in your life and not have the same negative behavior pattern. This is called cognitive behavioral therapy or. Cbt If you're interested in it and it's very cool so this is a modern way of thinking about psychology and it was kind of influence by this existential school of thought taking responsibility for your own choices so in saying that because choices a relevant to a specific time in specific set of Behavior Patterns that create. You who you are. Your choice can always change the more different choices that you make in your life the more knowledge that you have to make better choices going forward. So a good and a concrete thinking like the opposite of that with not fluid thinking concrete. Thinking gets you that all of it. Basically from fear is comes from fear and ignorance. It comes from not knowing. It's the lack of knowledge or lack of wisdom and a good way to describe. This would be If you let's imagine two people John and Barry John and Berry both worked at the same office and they have a very important job that they both love. John drives one way to work every single day. He always goes the same route to work and he's never had any experience of road closures or detours of any reason so he's always been able to go that one way to work so he's never had to look any other way. Every time I drive to work he always drives the same route and when he gets to work he gets to meet Berry. They have a good time. They have a good job at do a good job. They have drinks after work. Whatever and then they go home berry lives nearby to John but kind of around the corner from him and bury in his suburb. They're always doing fucking roadworks all the time. So in the ten years that both John and Berry have been working at this office. Barriers had consistently to take different routes to work even though they live very close to each other so he berry knows this entire neighborhood like the back of his fucking hand. Which is an interesting phrase. Actually when you think about it because I don't really know what the back of my head like. How many. How often do you guys stare at the back of your hand? Would you know in the back of your hand? If it was an a picture of ten other back of hands I guess I would anyway. So Berry knows his way around. Berry could walk to work if he had to. He could ride a bike. He could ride a skateboard. He could write. A fucking hovercraft. If we wanted to to work and he could get there any way. He wanted with his eyes. Close John on the other hand can only get to work one way because it's only he's ever gone then. One day. Suddenly tree falls across the road in front of John's House and not in front of John's House. Let's say half way to work. John's driving to work encounters the tree and then he goes. Fuck what's happened here. I'M GONNA have to wait till the train moves. And then he just sits there staring at the workers while they're having their Ten o'clock smoke. Oh break in their twelve o'clock smoke break and they're one fifteen smoke break and they're three o'clock smoke break and they haven't cleared the tree yet and he's just standing there staring at them going. Well I have to go to work and this is the way what happens now but berry has already been at work all day and he is chatting to Susan at the Water Cooler and Astro on a date and John's gut it because Jon didn't make it didn't realize that Susan was single and Kane coming across very misogynist anyways clearly demonstrated. My Point Berry has experienced a lot of adversity in his life which required him to understand different various ways of getting to his final destination. Whatever wet by whatever means necessary. John has never experienced any adversity in his life. He's never had to go any other way. Never thought to go any other way. Never even wanted to and now when one thing changes in his life he's totally fucked. This is an example of concrete thinking versus fluid thinking and it is so important that we spend our time fluidly thinking especially in times of change in adversity the people that survive these things well and the people that don't hoard toilet paper and the people that build stronger communities are people that have fluid thinking that can react to change and look at it in all its different perspectives and find a new way through it. We as a fucking family on this earth need to work together in general to figure out what the fuck is going on. We can't defer our responsibility to the government to the fucking media to the INSTAGRAM influence. Sarin webinar courses. Everyone's looking to take advantage of everyone in some way or another and the only way to protect yourself from doing that is not a stupid manipulable. Count Right and I'm not saying that that's your fault. I'm just saying that we in general are susceptible to shitty things going on around us because we are not taking responsibility for our own behavior in our thinking the stronger we can be as individuals stronger. We can be as a unit together as a family. We gotta look after each other man. Look after the chickens. I know that they are doing stupid things. But it's because they're scared most of the time when anyone in the world is doing something real shitty it's usually because they're scared and I'm not saying that we're stronger than them or better than them. It's just that maybe you've experienced a certain level of adversity. That has allowed you to have multiple avenues of thinking whereas somebody else has never done that or somebody else's experienced so much adversity in their life. They're just fucking giving up. All they want to do is watch the world burn. That also happens but what the majority if you walk outside and look at the general public. It's not what you see on the Internet. It's not what you see on the media. Yeah the shelves are pretty empty right now but there are still shelves right. You're GONNA get fed. The government's given out stimulus packages. It may not be exactly what you want. It may be a giant conspiracy to fucking hurt us like cattle. I don't know who knows why anything fucking goes on. The the existentialist would say that the world is absurd. The human position is absurd. We're responsible entirely furman existence. But we never asked to be here. We just are. So what do we do with that? How do we exist by being good cuts follow the example of Nici develop your own sense of style by experiencing yourself in the world constantly and ask yourself when you start doing some kind of any behavior any behavior? Ask yourself if everyone else did this right now. Would that be okay? And if you like the answer you get go for it and if you don't like the answer you get good job recorrect unless trying to try to find a new way. We're GONNA find a really cool amazing nice thing out of this because all beautiful philosophy beautiful music. Beautiful artwork comes out of confusion and strife. And we don't need to make this harder on ourselves than it needs to be and we certainly don't need to get mad at the naughty kids and the naughty corner for doing whatever the government was going to do anyway. Right relax be nice to each other. Be Nice to everybody because we're all in this together. Is that even necessary? Who am I talking to? You guys are good people. I don't know why this is coming across condescending. I really need to go. I don't know I'm feeling fucking confusing. Intensive already had my own personal meltdown for twenty twenty. What a confusing year. It's been right. Lastly I don't know that's more than enough Outta me. There's so much more I want to say and I'll probably say it again in another podcast because God I'm really. I'm really overdoing it here. I hope you guys are well. Thank you for listening as always Do have to make a small plea to you. I am a foreigner in this country and that means that I possibly not eligible for senator link. Benef- I know currently right now. I am not eligible for settling benefit credit card business cards loans of any kind. I am not eligible for in country because of my visa status. I'm allowed to work at. That's about it so unfortunately with Jim Closing as of twelve o'clock today I We'll be doing some video work for them. Which is Great? I'm still got some income coming in. But unless the government releases a stimulus package four temporary residents in this country. I have no other source of income. So if you guys and I know everyone else's in the same position so I totally get it if you do have any as spare cash and you want to contribute to the Patriot for this podcast. I'd fucking love you forever. You'D BE SAVING MY BACON. Big Time five bucks a month or whatever you choose to contribute. It doesn't matter. I know that everyone's in the same boat and it's all good. I'm still going to produce the podcast the best way I know how Whether I have to I don't know what I have to do to. I'm going to be fine. The government's GonNa look after us. There's no way they're gonNA leave two point one million temporary entrance in this country without a livelihood right now. We're going to be OK.

"We've all got that voice in our head that tells us we can't do stuff but some people are just better at not listening to them and by sitting down with those people asking them questions and then recording in blasting it out on the Internet. Perhaps maybe I can help other people like me. Get Out of our guys. Welcome back to close your optional. I do not have have a guest for you this week. It's me on my lonesome so about time as well. I don't know I try to do this. One once a month and yeah I'm brains all over the place for the last few weeks but it's a good thing it's because all lots of wonderful things happening opening on my life lots of change lots of really wonderfully good things. I'm very happy so it's good but I'm GonNa talk about all of that stuff very soon. before I get into the podcast just WanNa get me normal business shit out of the way if you like the podcast and want to support it you can do that by just like in my pages Lorna Bremner on instagram or facebook or subscribing to the podcast on itunes or spotify or wherever you listen to podcasts or you can support it at Patriotair. Dot Com for five bucks a month. It helps me get all the shit that I need to continue to do this stuff that I love to do. Thank you so much for listening as always thank you to all the patrons you guys are fucking legends and yeah today. I'm going to be talking talking about change and also a type of meditation was so a little background on a Buddhist Meditation that I want Scott Got taught when I was living in a tornado of chaos in my own life so let's just get right after it dealing with change so I think the reason why I wanted to talk about this is so much is changing in my a life. Now and things seem to be happening like Kinda faster than I'm used to. I don't know if this happened to everybody but most older the people I talked to in their thirties start to feel the sensation of like their brain slows down. They feel more comfortable in their selves. They have less of a need to impress people or be cool or whatever but it's kind of like like life begins now because you're not so wrapped wrapped up and trying to be as something and figuring out what you are in your twenties and teens and now it's like. Oh Fuck. I know what I am. I'm comfortable here now. I need to do the shit. I'm supposed to do whatever that is and that feels like what's kind of happening with me. It's like I finally of kind of just been like a self destructive mask for most of my life and then in the last. I don't know two three years. I've just starting to pull my shit together and in the last three months months since I started doing comedy. I just feel so happy. The I've got all these little bits of good things that are going on in my my life I make money in little portions in various different things that I get to do and I get to teach tie every single day which is so fun for me. His physical I get a train with my friends on myself. I get out of my house and then I get to come home and work on my shit all day and then I get a go and perform perform comedy at night and I couldn't be fucking happier. It's the way that I've constructed this out of. I guess like a black hole of chaos. I wasn't happy doing any of the bullshit that I was doing and fellow McConnell. Just sorta felt suffocated and bound by trying to figure out how to live life. That didn't feel like my life now. This is all coming across fucking pretentious and privileged and and I know that but I guess talking to people that are more or less like most of you guys that listen to this podcast looking for better ways of living better life and a The good news is if you're young if you're like in your early twenties should is going to get easier definitely going to get easier. You just got to get through this part where you feel like. You're a fucking maniac. 'cause you are and it's really important that you are a maniac for awhile because if you don't spend the time to know yourself and know what you want and know how to trust your own self you won't make it to this thing. Usually what happens is that you just latched down into a job solidifies latch down into relationship that solidifies or a mental state of being or whatever and then you end up just fucking staring at the walls for the rest of your life and I feel like were too good to do that as a general species like I think I think that I mean that's a path for many people and not for others whatever sometimes chaos Ashfield way too scary and it's too overwhelming but anyway so what I want to talk about today. Is this concept of change even me now experiencing veering basically every single thing that I've spent the last five to seven years of my life trying to figure out how to be. I'm finally doing exactly that which I wanted to do and I'm still getting resistance like I. I couldn't be fucking happier and I still have days where I don't know what the fuck is going on and if I'm okay and if I'm not okay and a lot of times I think we spend so much energy trying to force situations trying to find somebody love you or be seen by people or be respected by people it'd be understood by people and I don't know miraculously out of nowhere people disappear in your life that are willing to care about you and I think that usually comes from you sort of just establishing you kind of have to come through chaos to get on the other side of it to realize that like now you're steady now. You're stable and that's just how it feels for me so it's an interesting for me to observe because it's like this is the fucking thing that I wanted. This is all I've ever wanted all of the things that are happening to me right now are all that I've ever wanted and I still am experiencing strange elements elements of resistance to it and so I wanted to kind of talk about what that sensation is what changes like what it represents and then what is one way and only one way and certainly not the only right way. Hey maybe grounding yourself when things feel a bit fucking chaotic and you're not sure what to do with them. So I the impression I get about the human. I'm an experience is like we are kind of like forever walking a tightrope between chaos or excitement site -ment on one side the unknown and like the boredom security and the known on the other and our job like and I guess it's the end of the tight rope is death and the start of it. It's your birth like your whole. Life is kind of like walking in between those two things and you're just slowly kind of dipping from one one side to the other and maybe a tight rope isn't right because I guess if you fall off like if you step to the side of it you're GonNa go straight down into an abyss but it's like maybe it's like a balance beam like you're gonNA fall off sometimes into chaos or are you. GonNa fall off into boredom insecurity and then every once in a while you're gonna be like Nah fuck this. I need to keep going down the beam and then you'll get back up and Kinda. Pull yourself back together in fighting. There's a phrase that we use for this and it's called back to the center and I did an entire podcast about it so not gonNA. Wreck your heads with that but the idea is in my opinion I think like what it feels like to me is that without care and and focus it is really easy to fall off of one side or the other all the time and there are certain things that will kick you from one side to the other some the things that can kick you into chaos are unexpected changes a death in your family or someone close to you car accidents sickness. Is that kind of. Shit things that you're not ready for. Maybe a new job opportunity that you weren't expecting or somebody gives you a chance to do a Gig that you didn't think you're ready for whatever it is likes of any new change that comes into your life is going to be that is the unknown that's chaos and then on the other side. Is Your attachment inside. This is like your security. It's buying a house. It's having a long term partner. It's like staying in the same job forever and what always always happens humans and what I see. I can't fucking understand about us as no matter how good things are we tend to find a reason why they suck soon as we get used is to him and stop being this new fresh shiny exciting thing we get fucking bored and we start to resent it. I mean you just have to look at like your family for example you love them. They spend too much time around him and he wanNA fucking punch him in the face. I don't know if that's ever could you get what I mean. There is this we have this fucking weird thing that we can't be in all the way in chaos because if we do we are totally lost and unknown and crazy insecure and don't know what the fuck is happening and we don't progress with our lives but we can't all be in the known either because then we'll get suffocated and board so we have to figure out a way to walk this like Middle Path or whatever walk on the tightrope walk on the Balance Beam. That's in between the two of those things and it takes focus to do that because the lure of both of them is really great and an easy example of that is say you've met somebody that you're in love with and you've been together for five years when you have a really strong loving bonded relationship and then you start a new job and there's a person at your job that you're attracted to the lure of the chaos of that exciting unknown that person's not any better than the one that you're in love with but for some reason there has this like lure of exciting a-n-o-n-m-u-s about them and there is a Lourdes to go and fuck him. I guess and figure out if that's what you want most people don't do it because most people understand that like the beauty of the love that you already have is worthwhile but this this is this is gross thing that occurs inside your head like Oh i wonder what that would be like and it's fucking gross that we do it but that's like an example of the lure of chaos and security and then on the other hand. It's the same thing if say you're single and you've been single for ages and you're doing a bunch of drugs and you're living in Darwin and.

"All got that voice in our head that tells us we can't do stuff but some people are just better at not listening to and by sitting down with those people asking them questions and then of course blasting it out on the Internet. Perhaps I can help other people like me. Get Out of our on all right hi everybody I initially set myself up in in the airport in this very quiet place. When I I got here about all lovely I can look out the windows? It's this nice big open hallway lovely ambient sound and then <hes> as the day wore on people started coming into the fucking airport report. I realized I was in a thoroughfare and everyone getting everywhere in anywhere had to go right past me in. I couldn't handle the embarrassment I'm such wanker right now. Think of like every person you hate who does things on the Internet Mike Social Media influencers like this is I have this gigantic microphone and I'm just talking into myself with the microphone at my mouth and so anyone that <hes> is going to walk past is going to be like what fucking who is this person anyway yeah. Thank you so much for all the questions. It's fucking awesome. I have some really good exciting fun questions some weird questions some lovely nice thoughtful questions and this is GonNa make a fun podcast. I think so quickly before I get started answering the questions. I just want to say thank you to everybody who is helping me out with a podcast of the patrons on the page and thank you fucking I. I don't know how many times to say thank you to Blair Zoe for everything you guys do for me. It's like the stupid as embarrassingly stupid how good you are to thirty three year old person who can't seem to get there <hes> <hes> I eventually someday one of the things that I do is going to be a payoff and I'll be able to repay you for all the amazing kind shit. You've done for me so thank you to everybody who's helping support this podcast it really honestly it means the world to meet because I right now. I'm about to fly back to America to see my brother. Get married and I live exactly week-to-week and I've designed my life this way on purpose so that I have as much time as possible to be creative and work on the cool shit that matters there's to me in my life <hes> but the trouble with that is when I go away and I don't work for those three weeks. I forget that I have to also pay bill so I fucked that up every once in a while ago yeah I I while I'm gone. I still have life to pay for. It and I don't know how I'm going to do that and so you guys just even as stupid as it is. Five bucks a month makes when they are added up and there's a few of you do it really really helps me. Keep making this podcast and make it happen so thank you so much for that. If you want to <hes> support the podcast if you aren't already or you want to feel like it you can go to patriotic dot com slash loan bremner and support it there or you can just like my pages. That's Lorna Bremner on facebook. FACEBOOK and instagram also have a twitter no good reason but it's there you can also just share this podcast or any of them or whatever just keep. Don't keep on keeping on thanks for listening all right so today. I'm asking are answering questions that you guys have asked me <hes> I one was the very first question that I heard because I didn't check my social media and I asked this in person to a girl and <hes> this is her question so I'm not GonNa say who this one is. Just in case you listen to this podcast with the person she's talking about in this and I don't want to embarrass them. What do you do if guy is boring but he has a big Dick? Well I mean they obvious immediate answer. That question is like keep enjoying the Dick. It sounds like that's the positive I mean. Some people might not like big Dick. They might find the painful or uncomfortable or daunting. I know sometimes when I've been <hes> confronted with that problem I've gone. What in the fuck am I going to do with that and we make it work? Obviously we figure it out but it can't be a little bit overwhelming so I'm but in this framing of this question it sounds like the boring is bad and the big Dick is good so I'm going to go with that assumption <hes> yeah it's on the surface. It sounds like an easy question to answer sir. Just keep enjoying that Dick until you don't anymore but <hes> I I think there's also <hes> some interesting sort of more deep psychological answer to this and that's what I'm GonNa go. Oh for now so <hes> if you can I think there's two different ways that a person could be boring ones an unhealthy way and one's a healthy way so if they're boring and you're not into it because because it's for an unhealthy reason then that's probably something psychologically telling about you in your history and something that could <hes> be rectified within yourself and then the other one is <hes> they're just boring and not interesting interesting not really matched for you then obviously that's that situation so there's two different ways of looking at this so in the first one is the unhealthy situation and that is if you have got history of chaos in your family life life particularly <hes> the member of the opposite sex in your family dad brothers whatever your experience of men in your childhood was of chaos whether they're kind of like abusive or neglectful it for a angry all the time regressive that will shape what your perception of men are like going growing up and even if you hated that person in your life growing up that still it is what you're version of reality is so what psychology tends to say about this is while you're processing that and and dealing with that being a an aspect of your reality that that's the way men are you will continually seek out partners that reflect that and it's because it's normal even though it's toxic and it feels fucked up in you you don't enjoy it. You will perpetually find yourself seeking out partners that match that because it makes you feel safe as weird is that sounds like somebody who's violent towards you as a kid. You'll still seek that same kind of person because it feels like like you know the earth is round so that's one aspect of it they it's the person could be born. They could be right for you. They could be very friendly lovely kind helpful caring supportive. If you have conversations with them you feel like you can talk to them while you know all of those things and you enjoy having sex with them and they have a big Dick Great those are all many wonderful aspects of it but if you continually find yourself like trying to cause fights with them or hoping that the lose something wrong to catch them at something or trying to find some way of creating chaos in in your environment because you are quote unquote board that is a signifier of probably toxic experience that you're having this person is probably very right for you but you're rejecting it because it feels it was a boring on account of the fact that it's not chaotic so if you can deal with some of the chaos feelings and fucking how we begin to even deconstruct that as a whole is another entire huge conversation probably conversation professional a professional not somebody who.

"All got that voice in our head that tells us, we can't do stuff. But some people are just better at not listening to 'em by sitting down with people asking them questions, and then according blasting it out on the internet, perhaps, maybe I can help other people like me get out of our own. Welcome back to closure optional I don't have a guess for you this week this week. I'm going to be talking about this month's challenge, which is true. And if you don't follow me on social media, and you don't know what I'm talking about. I will explain everything in just a moment. I, I just want to get the business stuff out of the way if you like this podcast or any of the podcast, you've heard of whatever you can support this podcast anytime you want to by going to my silly social media pages. They're just my name Lorna Bremner on Instagram Facebook. And now he s even Twitter don't know why I fucking bothered with that to be honest with you, because I already have like a limiter on my phone. That stops me from using social media, more than a half an hour a day because I fucking sucks. My life away, I never feel good. Using it looking at it. I never have any reason to go onto, I literally only ever use social media to look for notifications of myself and try and hope that someone I like is going to be talking to me in one of those air, that's how fucking ridiculous. It is. But we also have we IRA, how I say way to like there's more than me doing this podcast Molina thinks that I'd do it because I'm trying to be. Humble. But I wanted to feel more like an organization than just crazy person sitting in their shed talking to know. I have a patriotic page. It's. Patriae. PAT. R. E O, N dot com slash Lorna Bremner. If you're interested in supporting the podcast that way, please do it. If not, if you can't or whatever we still like doing this thing, and you want to see me achieve my dreams. Please just tell you friends about the podcast. Like it's scribe to on. I tunes all that shit. So. Today's podcast is all about the truth and the opposite of the truth, which is bullshit. The challenge for the month of June was that Melena? And I had to act upon believe and speak only the truth for the entire month of June, and to make that measurable. We set out some goals for ourselves. We set it out in three different categories. One was life was work, and one was health and fitness. And so we set out these goals wrote them down at the start of the month. And then that way, we kind of keep ourselves accountable for trying to achieve the things that we had set out to do, because it's a little bit hard. It's fucking tricky no-one, if you're lying to yourself or not, and you can manipulate your own behavior. Asari manipulate your own reasons inside your head for whatever behavior, you're doing and getting your own way. So by both of us saying out loud, what we wanted to achieve or what we wanted to. I don't know work on or whatever then when one or the other of us decided to procrastinate, or eatable of ice cream, or whatever we could look at each other. And go are you sure that's really gonna help you do what you said you wanted to do? And then the other one of us can go. Yeah, you're right. I'm lying. So that was the plan, and it has been cool. I have already read two books like it's been crazy. I've wasted that much time. Going into you to Texas or staring at stupid shit on social media that I have stopped reading before I went to bed, and I also stopped meditating before I went to bed and those are two things in my life goals that I wanted to put back into place and I've already finished who books this month and I still have another week to go. So that's good. So Annabi meditating everyday, which feels fucking amazing and. And I actually chief my goal for the end of the month. I achieved it in the second week. So that was pretty fucking neat for work anyways, I'll get to all of that in just a moment. I, I wanted to talk a little bit about the psychology and sort of I guess you'd call it neuro physiology or like, what happens inside, our brain, when we li- I obviously, I'm not an expert. I don't know shit about any of this, but I was curious to know what happens inside our brain. So thanks to Google in the internet. I read a cool study about it. Basically what they did was. They took a bunch of participants and put them in a scanner. So they could watch their brain activity and they asked them to live for personal gain in various circumstances. And then they watch what happens the participants brains. And what happened is that there is a place inside at the center of our brain called the middle that manages emotions. It's like our emotional center, inside our brain. And what they notice was one person lied for personal gain the amid LA in the brain, what sort of release a negative emotion in the body which limits, the extent to which were prepared to make the lie happen. But the more that they did the study the more that they proceeded through this. The course they found that the more people lied, the less. They're middle would respond which meant the lies would start getting bigger and more outrageous. So people became desensitized to the lie in the same way that, if you moved into a brand new house, and you're making food one day, and it set the fire alarm off. You would react pretty extremely run overturn the fire alarm off, like open all the windows, because you think that there's so much smoke in the house, but then say, like as time goes on every single time you cook the firearm always goes off, even when you start having showers of fire alarm goes off from the steam, then you start to ignore the fire alarm, because it keeps going off all circumstances all the time. And. You have you have to keep continuing to live your life, and do things, so you just, you know, eventually take the batteries out of it or ignore its call. It's like you get to a point where you'd rather have the house burned down then have to hear that fucking screeching it, every time our. So that's essentially, what happens to our brain when we lie, and consistently lie. So when I read about that I was curious because I was like, well, if we have an inbuilt feature to stop us from lying to each other, why the fuck do we lie in the first place. What's actual point of it? And so there's another video on have links to this website. There was a video that they. Proposed a theory like evolutionary basis of why we lie and this has come from a bunch of other studies that they site in the video, but summarize it here, so essentially, they are saying that we're social animals, and we need to keep the peace, but we also need to stay alive as individuals. And if obscuring the truth is necessary to get ourselves ahead. And also, keep the peace, then we'll do that. So in terms of our three main values as a society in a tribe, let's say in a simple tribe. It is our selves, first, then the tribe, and then the truth and all three of those things are linked to each other. But in terms of priorities that's the order that they go in. So then they were saying that the more. We start to interact with each other, the more we see some advantages in lying then we start of sometimes getting burned. And because we start getting burned, then we start getting more intelligent at detecting ally. Because he mentioned this, if you never known it ever lied to you before and you had no reason ever believe that they could lie, are, would lie you wouldn't know how to detect if they were lying to you. But once you've been burned once he start looking for signals that fuck as far as intelligence are not. And so, then we get more effective at detecting ally, which, then, of course, makes us better at lying, and hiding the fact that officious cycle of deception detection. And then what they're saying is that the more complex society gets the more complex the rules and punishments for lying half to be because we can't all watch everybody else in the society all the time. And stop them from wine to us. Do you know what I mean? So people started learning how to get ahead. Led by being deceptive. And then other people couldn't get on top of it, because they're too far away, they weren't around them and the whole fucking thing started explode. So that's why we have laws rules excetera general standard ways of being to comport ourselves appropriately, and honestly, with each other. But then in order to bypass that because we're such fucking Wiley, little bastards. We have Venturi. Then get better at lying. So good at lying. In fact, that we lie to ourselves about the fact that we're lying so that, that way, our body doesn't give us away when we lie because if the only alarm bell that our body gives us when we're lying for personal gain is an emotional response than if we can cut out the emotion to what we've just said, then there will be no emotional response. And we can lie all day and this is really interesting. So they found that in the brain, there's two there's two different types of tissue inside the brain. There's connective tissue white matter. And then there's processing tissue which is a gray matter. And. Pathological liars have twenty five percent more connective tissue, which is the white matter, then other people. But because you can only fit so much matter inside your brain. They have less gray matter, which is the processing part of your brain. So they're less effective, critical thinking, which means that they can come up with really clever plans really quickly and light, you really fast and covered their tracks pretty quickly, but they have no ability to sort of comprehend the long term ramifications of their actions. And this is, you know, there forever painting themselves into a corner, and then lying to get their way out. It's so interesting. And it makes perfect sense, when you think about it laid out like that. But what's so fucking creepy about it is that we don't even know when we're lying anymore. It's become such a normal part of our experience of being. We can't even tell when we're fucking lying to ourselves like this, the other morning, I was out having breakfast with Molina, and we're sitting there, just enjoying our coffee and the waiter, went past a table, right next to us and drop something off to their table, and then said to them, are you waiting on anything else? And it's because an Australia, I don't if you're somewhere else, and they don't do this. I'm sure sure this is a pretty more or less universal thing. But they have table number sitting on the table. And if you are waiting for more food than normal protocol, is that you leave the table number there until all the food and drinks have been delivered to the table, and then the waiters supposed to take that table number way. So that everyone in the restaurant knows that they're done, and they're not waiting on anything. So that's what his job was he walks up. The thing off, and then it goes waiting on anything else. And then the people table said he s I am. I'm waiting for my beetroot. Cain. Wapping pine nut. Infusion. Whatever. And then the waiter goes won't be long. And then he walked away in on surface, the surface level. Yeah, that's like a really normal exchange. But when you think about it critically his like skews me.

"All got that voice in our head that tells us, we can't do stuff. But some people are just better at not listening to 'em by sitting down with people asking them questions and then courting blasting it out on the internet. Perhaps, maybe I can help other people like me get out of our own. Welcome back to closure. Optional this is a really good conversation. If you're a fighter considering fighting training, martial arts or have some big thing coming up in the future that you are worried about or wanting to do and putting off doing you gotta hear this podcast. Elliot. The dragon Compton is a professional martial artist. He is immortal fighter and kickboxing fight kickboxer. And he's currently signed to one championship right now to fight literally the best in the world at his sport he has had, I think about almost sixty fights forty six of them wins. Most of them, scary knockouts, and he's fought at limb Pini stadium, even which for a westerner pretty much for anybody. Any human that participates in the sport. M Y tie. The end all be all alternate achievement is to fight loom Pini, and he was able to fight on the Saturday night show against a world class tie and also end up coming away with a win spectacular win. In fact, so Elliott has done incredibly well from self so far in the sport. And he's only quite young, so he's got plenty more to offer. And this is an awesome conversation about what it's like to grow up training, martial arts with your dad, as you trainer forever and never anyone else. What kind of takes the develop the sort of mindset that you have to push through a lot of the hard shit to get up to this kind of level of fighting, and some really interesting insights about how he feels when he knocks somebody out and? You know, kind of going through the motions of what it's like to be a human that's trained killer, but also a cinch, int- human being operates on this planet in cooperation with the rest of us. It's very, very cool conversation. We did have to go around the corner to a cafe away from his Jim. When we recorded the conversation, so there's a little bit of background noise. It's not too bad. I think I have pretty much taking care of most of it. But at the very start, I was recording his microphone disobeyed too loud. So for about the first two or three minutes of the conversation, it's about loud, his microphones a bit distorted but it does settle itself down. I changed about three minutes in. So it's not like that the whole way, so sorry about that. And it was the last of our may venture travels. I had so much fun on this month's challenge. It was. It was a bit intense. It was definitely a bit. Overzealous of us. I talked about this last week. Anyway, to go on a vacation of a case, cut American go on a holiday, every single weekend. It broke the Bank and pressed into my sweet procrastination time. So I actually had to really do my work. When I said it was going to that was a bit tough. But the last trip up to the sunny coast was so, so much fun. We went to the big pineapple and wrote around on a train with a potential serial killer. We met this guy, the train conductor. I think he was mad at us because we are too anxious to get on the train, and we didn't obey one of the signs, and he asked us, if we could read in a really sarcastic tone, and then with sort of felt like we are in trouble, and Molina's usual reaction of being in trouble is to get a bit meek and sorry, and my reaction to getting in trouble is to be mad at the person who got mad at me. That was really funny. We were like little kids go, we got on the train, and he warmed up to us. He actually ended up being really nice to us and offered to take a bunch of stupid pictures of us on the train. And at one point, he pulled up next to this, like, open pasture where they had a couple of tiny ponies, and some Paca, and he said, just jumped off the training goes, hey ladies, have a look at those horses. I'll be back in a tick. Almost like he was like keep an eye on those horses. So that I could do whatever scary thing, I'm about to do behind you. I was a little bit worried where you're gonna get skinned alive. But then he came back as normal. I think he went to go and see if he could get some food for the horses, so that he could offer us to feed them. And I was an asshole for judging him so badly. But then after that I went and did carry Okey horrifically. I talked to Elliott about this and. Yeah, to some other embarrassing exciting things. So there you go. And of course that five I two seconds that I've met this stranger I just immediately. Tell them all my life secrets because I'm a fucking. Anyway. So please do. Enjoy this. Converse. Oh, yeah. Now that's the end of may venture. That means we have a new month and that means the new month's challenge for the month of June is called Troon. And what we have to do is that Molina. And I have to take very good hard. Look at ourselves and the bullshit inside our heads. We shall only speak believe an act, the truth act, the truth act upon the truth for the entire month of June. So that means consistently asking ourselves. Why are you doing that? What's the purpose of that? What are you trying to achieve here? Are you doing this for attention? Are you doing this, because it actually is important to you? One thing that we're both really bad at two is a sumo. What other people are thinking and acting on that assumption like Aw. I think they must be mad at me. So I'm gonna leave them alone or oh, I think he hates me. And that's why he's not calling or whatever the fucking dumb thing is that goes on in your head. So we have to constantly continually ask ourselves. Is that the truth? Are you going to achieve your goals by staring yourself in the mirror for twelve hours instead of fucking writing? Like you said you were going to we're trying to stop our own procrastination. And we're trying to stop the, the bullshit that goes on side around hits. In order to sort of make this measurable. We have decided to name and write down a goal each in three separate categories. So one life goal one work goal, and then a physical fitness or like a health goal. My personal goals is to meditate every night and do why am I telling you this really who cares? I'm going to I'm going to meditate and lay on my traction blocks. Okay, every night of the week, which helps rely my spine and I'm not watching Netflix and my new obsession with James as castor for the entire night. Like I have been instead I'm going to read a book, so. That's it. If you would like to join in with us, please do by all means you can send us your goals so that we can keep you accountable or tell your friends, or whatever, and we'll keep you posted on how we're going with ours. The main thing is, and this is a really good mental health practice. Just in general, anytime you hear some wacky bullshit thought come up inside your head. Even if you just do it for this month just give it a try and that is, is that the truth. Your brain will cleverly. Well, it could be an this answer to that is, do you know that for sure? No. Of course, he don't because you don't fucking know any of that nonsense. It comes up inside your head. It's all fantasies and bullshit, that is designed to keep you from doing the shit that you're trying to do. Everybody has doubt even the amazing and terrifying Elliott, the dragon Compton has doubt any talks about that in this conversation. So thank you again, for listening as always, thank you so much to our patrons for looking after me and continuing to support this podcast.

Welcome back to closure. Optional I don't have guests for you this week because this week, I'm going to be summarizing all of the Cillian nonsensical shit. We got up to on our main venture adventures, if you don't know what I'm talking about. If this is the first podcast you've ever listened to then I'll quickly explain myself. With this podcast once a month. We decide on a challenge for the whole month. And by we I mean myself and my flatmate, who have kinda roped into these challenges, and she's ended up actually being probably better at them than me and most circumstances. And the idea is we'll come up with anything like whatever the fuck it needs to be this originally idea came from me, visiting my brother in California, and his girlfriend in him, do a some kind of challenge once a month, like food related, whether they can't eat anything that has plastic and don't use any plastic for the month or. You know, no sugar, no meat whatever. So I loved this idea that they were doing that. So I started doing it and over the last year, we've done a new challenge for every single month. I think we started in. ES August last year. So it's almost been a year that we've been doing this, and this month. The challenge was that we had to go on an adventure every weekend of the month, and it doesn't sound like that's that hard to do. Sounds like it's going to be really fun. And it was fun. But it was pretty interesting to see that the way that both of us reacted to a new life situations and be having to orient our lives around and schedule our time appropriately in order to go out and do the silly shit that we did this whole month before I get into the podcast just want to quickly say, thank you, as always to everyone who supporting this podcast by the patriot page or participating in my dumb shit on the internet or sharing it with your friends, or whatever, or sending me messages. At the end of each podcast. I fuck in really, really appreciate it. This I wouldn't have been able to go an interview any of the people that I did on our travels over the last month if it weren't for you guys in fact because. Because. Your patronage has purchased us a new digital recorder that I cannot take with me anywhere in the world and record this podcast. So that was a huge step forward. It also operates in my studio, and allows me to upgrade, all my Queant that I was using from nineteen twenty seven, so I really really really appreciate the support you guys. And I know I say it all the time, and I hope you don't think that I'm just saying because I feel like I have to the honestly, there would be no point in doing this podcast, if they weren't people out there, getting something out of it, enjoying it, and I let him know that they exist. So e could be a little bit of a self-indulgent wing fest. I feel like I'd kind of do it anyway, because it's fun for me to do this job. But it makes it way, more fun when I know that people are actually listening to it. So you if you're not a patron of this podcast, what you want to be, you can do that at patriotic dot. Com. It's PAT R O, N dot com slash Lorna Bremner. And you can pick any level that you want to, whatever you're comfortable with and send you some fun shit at depending on the level you do. Or you can share it with your friends, obviously, like my Facebook page or Instagram fade page, they're both just called Lorna Bremner. I know that's a little bit confusing because the podcast is called closure. Optional it was because originally, I thought that I was going to be an artist when I grew up. And so I made those pages thinking that I was going to show off my artwork so that I could become a real life artist one day. And then it turns out, I didn't have the discipline, wherewithal or confidence to do that. And now I make art work as a hobby and do this shit for real. So. I think it's all worked out for the best to be honest. I think I'm probably better at this than I am and making our work, but it's fun because the two things go hand in hand, every time I added a podcast, I always make a drawing and usually if I can finish the drawing and it's not a total piece of shit. I give it to the guest that I'm editing. And this case that will be me. Won't so enough of that onto the subject of today's podcast, this podcast today is not going to have a lot of moral fiber in it, you guys, unfortunately, maybe it's because I started drinking again, and I just don't give a fuck about anything. I, I don't know. I every time I do a solo podcast spend fucking hours researching and idea coming up with formulation of what I want to say and how I want to say it, and I ride, a big old thing about it, and try and make it sound cool and interesting and fun and give you some moral idea that you can run off into the world with and feel like you're growing a human being. But sometimes I wonder if a little bit of my silly personality gets a bit lost in that because I'm too focused on trying to teach something and just saying that makes me feel like fucking pretentious and stupid to be like, you know, professing that I know something that you wouldn't. And maybe sometimes you guys just want to hear a cool story or not, or whatever, I don't know. So if this comes across as self-indulgent, please send me a message and be like you fucking idiot go back to actually trying and maybe we'd like you better. Usually social say shame and degradation kicked me in the ass and makes me do things better. So by all means, you know, don't hold back, I care that you guys enjoy what this is. So I hope these stories will be entertaining and fun for you today, but be warned. There's not a lot of moral fiber going on. I have wondered a little bit if that I'm drinking again, I should be very careful about the way I say that, while we've gone off on these trips I have drunk approximately two beers. On each of the Saturday nights that I've been out with Molina on these trips and. Yeah. I think like to have a drink every weekend is probably not helping my self confidence and psyche because I think it's just been so rigidly stuck in my head that drinking's a shitty idea, and it's poisonous. And it's not good for you. So, like I think I'm beating myself up a little bit. I still don't I soon as I get to two beers. I'm enjoying myself. I have one beer and it feels nice. And I have the second one and it feels okay. And then as soon as I'm considering going to third or start third beer. I feel immediately sick. And then I get the fear so bad about having a hangover or being depressed or going back to the state of mind that I was in, when I was drinking all the time that are just immediately. Stop and give up. So I think I think it's a good thing. I don't really wanna see myself being a drinker again. But I don't know. I wonder if that's been kind of impacting myself confidence last couple of weeks. Also have been exercising as much as I'd like to because my arm. Capes dislo. At least ligaments in my oboe, and my radius, my bone in my arm dislocates, every time I throw a punch, so it's fucking scary. The worst feeling. So I don't know. I think of been in a bit of a funk this week and last week. And I'm not going to blame it on our trips because I think our trips really exciting. But one thing that tends to happen. I feel like people when you have new experiences it stirs up a lot of your old behavior patterns and kind of rooted in stuck patterns that are inside your personality on your psyche. And sometimes, I guess, for me at least it seems to be showing me patterns of behavior myself that I thought I had changed for wanted to change and probably what's actually happened is that I've just shut down my external inputs lot more. So I haven't been. Probably need to explain this idea better. I thought that I had like cured certain tendencies in myself over the last couple of years, because I wasn't out drinking. I wasn't out chatting away two boys and doing embarrassing stupid things or feeling self conscious about shit. But really, what's actually happening is that I've been spending so much more time on my own working on my own shit that I rarely have much interaction with the outside world, except for the people that I interact with the gym. So when I actually do go out into the world and do different things those old tendencies still creep back up as much as I thought I've dealt with them, it's probably more than I just haven't been experiencing them. So this is pretty interesting. The places that we went to over this month. We I went to Byron bay because my brother came to visit me from California was the first time in twelve years, that member of my family has come to visit me in Australia. And it was so fun. He brought his fiancee over and we had a really, really good times. The first trip was down to Byron bay the second trip we went to Coffs Harbour via Grafton and third trip. We went to stand Thorpe and Tenterfield which is like, straight west Queensland from the Gold Coast straight out, stand Thorpe, and then down Tenterfield New South Wales. They're just like all right along the border, these states, and then back up through the northern rivers of New South Wales to Queensland and then this weekend, when you're going to be hearing, this podcast, we will be up in the Sunshine Coast for our last adventure of venture. Who is pretty crazy actually speaking of habits I, I thought, yeah. Like he's probably sounds to you what fucking dumb challenge. It's not hard to go. Have fun on a weekend. But the way of them building my life over the last six months, I've actually made it incredibly difficult for myself to go and do anything because I am completely self sustainable. I have a job that pays me, basically pays for my bills where I teach time work at the gym. And then outside of that, I do freelance video work. My podcast. Obviously, my own video projects, and I have personal training clients that I organize myself, so everything outside of my few twenty hours a week or whatever that I do at the gym is all off my own back in that. I've got to chase up and organize and create time for in my day. So some days, I'll do like a fourteen or sixteen hour day without realizing it because I'm doing different types of work, but I'm just working constantly all day, and usually what I do is fucking procrastinate. Like I'll just do this stupidest. Mike procrastination is so intelligent that I can't even tell that I'm procrastinating, because I've convinced myself that whatever this dumb thing is that I've decided I need to do are just go and do that. And then I'm like, oh, yeah. This is the most important thing. This is what I need to be doing right now. When, in fact, the truth is a no, what I need to be doing the shit that I'm going to get paid for this going to progress my career in something or that's going to give meaning in my life. Not like folding my socks and three different ways. And then stacking them in my class. No learning. Getting your shit together. It's really important to fold your socks up, so that people know that you've got your shit together. Maybe it would be better to book, some more clients work on my book, or whatever anyways. So I'm so clever. Procrastinating that I ended up fucking procrastinating all week and then by the weekend, I haven't got the podcast on our haven't got the video worked on or whatever. I will just cram it all into three days. And by the end of three eighteen hour days fucking exhausted, rectors, so the next week, I start all over. Doing nothing. So in having may venture now and Molina's the same she's not as bad as as me. I don't know. I can't tell I can't speak on her behalf, but she also works for herself from home. So. If she had the option she would just work twenty four seven she just sit in front of that computer like a black hole, and be lost to this world forever. So even though we live with each other, and we work with each other at the gym. We still don't spend very much quality time together because we're both just in this black hole of chaos in our own nonsense. So we said to each other, all right? Let's plan our week better, let's actually give ourselves a weekend. We are committing to going away from our computers out into the nother world somewhere else in. So we must better schedule our time so that we can actually live our lives. So I've gotten so wrapped up in the cycle of just doing shit without thinking about it, and not really organizing my time that I can't really tell how much time spending on shit and how much time I'm wasting. And so this was very eliminating the first week of me, not having this two and a half days at the end of the weeks of jam all the shit that I didn't do all weekend and a route away. It's tough man. I, I don't know I'm going to bad habit..

"Too. Is that it's not. It's not perfect still definitely a hierarchy. There was VIP's. And there were people that were better at rope than other people. You know, there are people that were like exalted masters in that room like people that were well known in the community to be. Had higher status in the community and stuff. So there's. You can't even in. I think there's this new popular wave of thanking just speed yourself. No, judgment, do whatever you wanna do or whatever. And we all equal all of us. Are you qu'ils all across the board? There was an element of that. Definitely. There was no judgment. Nobody was being critical of each other. There was discernment. And there was kindness. And like the freedom to be whatever you wanted to be without anyone judging you, but at the same time, they're still hierarchy. There's still people that were better at it than others are better looking people than others. There are people that were more sought after to be played with and people that were not sought after to be played with. I didn't feel it in a creepy way. At all. And I felt actually noticed that. I went to Nova one time, and I noticed that there was even bullying going on in a supernova like these are people that are notoriously being bullied their whole lives, and they all get together and get a B themselves where their costumes and talk about games and meet their superheroes and shit, and my friend God bullied by a bunch of at that place too. So it's like that should happen. But even last night like I didn't see a person crying. I didn't see anyone feeling upset. I don't know if I'm sure that that dynamic does go on in these communities, but it was pretty amazing. How none of that was happening. And I think. Yeah. Everyone was kind of on their best behavior little bit. I think. It's their night out to do what they want. And I think in that community being an asshole actually makes you part of the out group that makes sense like if you were to come up with judgment, you'd probably be ousted a little bit. So you'd end you'd ruin the vibe or whatever, and you probably make people feel uncomfortable. So it's not it's frowned upon to be judgmental in that environment, which could be a bad thing. I guess if it got magnified to a greater group of beings where somebody starts doing something really fucked up and people are too afraid to speak out against it. But I think by all the rules that they put into play and all of the really intense formalities they put on against consent. I think you'd probably have at least less of that than you would otherwise. So it is kind of like a little bit of a sacred space of weird shit, and this mutual expectation of respect is sort of the only thing that kind of keeps an imbalance. So it could be I think it's a good thing in this particular environment in a controlled environment and a party. I think it was a good thing. There is as some criticism to it being said that like fuck if you're gonna fuck people just fucked people like get crazy don't bother with all this fanfare, but not now I think kind of seeing especially seeing the medical stuff you can see how badly something could go wrong. If these people weren't in total agreement about what was going on. It makes sense more. Now that I've seen it seemed like a lot of bureaucracy to start with. But it isn't at all like really need a clear line in the sand. So it was good to see that anyways in real life. But by the end of night, I ended up getting home. I think I went to bed around one thirty or something, and I was so fucking tired. I could barely tell me about it. When I got back because I didn't even know where to begin where to start so. I went to sleep in the middle of the night. I woke up with this amazing insight like that I had solved the problem of it. Because I came home a bit conflicted because I was kind of cynical and jaded about the whole situation like are people really that night. So they really that happy. And then at the same time, it's kind of like, well, but Faulk is the only place that people can do shit like that. It's better they're doing it here in a safe environment than out in the world. I was really like time my brain up in knots about it. And I woke up in the middle of the night with this like mazing insight. Oh, I'm definitely gonna remember that better say that in the podcast. And then of course, forgot so well, I go back knows maybe possibly. Stay tuned on my Facebook slash Instagram YouTube, or whatever I will hopefully have some video footage of this up over the next coming months in any of the other footage that I've got from this and the lovely wonderful people at haven thirty three have also agreed to consider hosting a live podcast at haven thirty three one time. So I believe I will be interviewing one of my friends who's a stand up comedian. So we will do a stand up comedy night have some comedians perform for you. And then we will sit down and do a live podcast. I haven't got all the details. Sorted yet. But that will be something in the pipeline down in the future.

"We've all got that voice in our head. That tells us we can't do stuff, but some people are just better at not listening to and by sitting down with this people asking them questions, and then according blasting it out on the internet, perhaps maybe I can help other people like me get out of our own. Hey, guys. Welcome back to closure. Optional I don't have a guest for you this week because this week I'm talking about the kinky sex party that I went to last night. Seem silly to have a guest after I'm. I've gone to going through. It's like I sounds like it was traumatic wasn't at all. After doing something like that and experiencing something like that. It seemed like the only right thing to do is to do it Justice by explaining it to the internet. For all of eternity. This isn't like a new thing that I'm doing. It's not like a new part of my personality that I'm exploring. This was it all kind of started because I interviewed a lady called priests desire on episode fifty of this podcast. She is a professional dominatrix and the day I met her. She took me to her place of business, which is giant house called haven thirty three which was a brothel that they turned into a sort of like an amusement park for fetish and kink. This place is incredible. It's it's actually like very beautifully. They've made this place. It's like, I don't know maybe eleven bedrooms, thirteen bedroom something like that. And each different rooms got its own theme. It's got his own shit. That goes on inside it for any various king that you might be interested in exploring. So if you would like to see more about what this places before I get into the depths of this podcast. There is a video that I did with her from that day when I went and visited it's on my YouTube channel, I think that about six people probably know about and that video is called a tour of haven thirty three with priestess desire. So if you'd like to look that up before you, listen to this story, it may help you get a bit of a visual context about what this place is like I. I also have shared it on my Instagram on my Facebook too. So if you want to go find that there is links to find that thing there before I get into the story of the podcast. I just want to quickly say thank you to everybody for your feedback about last week's podcast. I am I always love your feedback from any of the podcast. But especially like the ones where I do them by myself because it's good to know that making sense to people. I know I say this all the time. But I really really really appreciate it. And it's particularly this one because it was still with a lot of kind of philosophy psychology that I know very little about. But it was really good to know that people were getting something out of it. So thank you again for your messages as always please by all means keep sentiment. Also, thank you to my new patrons. That was amazing. What a lovely surprise coming back from Bali and having a couple of new patrons. So I really really appreciate that. And I will be sending out to your rewards through the course of this week if that was one of the tears that you did. And so if you want to support this podcast as a bunch of different ways, you can do it. You can go just to my Facebook or Instagram pages like them subscribe to them. You can subscribe to the podcast on itunes or Spotify or whatever app that you used to have podcast because it's all of them. You can share you favorite episode with your friends tell people about it. Whenever also if you've got some extra cash and you want to support the podcast financially. You can do that at patriotic dot com slash Lorna Bremner and for the cost of a Cup of coffee a month, even less possibly depending. If he is coconut milk. You can support the podcast and helped me keep my dreams alive of going to kink parties and getting whipped on a wheel. I didn't get whipped on a wheel. But I'll get into that sin. All right onto the meat of the podcast. I I want to start by saying thank you to the people at thirty three and all of the people that were kind enough to let me record or film them doing their various things during this party last night. It was so hard to get footage of what was actually going on. Just because. First of all, I think I was just over the just like a sensory overload. There was so much going on. And I'm so new in this environment. I don't know a lot of people. So it was really hard. I'm awkward enough as it is. And then trying to go and like walk into a room where guys strapped naked to a wheel and someone's like whipping his heart dick, it's haiku would from me to walk up there. And be like, hi, I you mind, if I watch you do this second to modify film, you doing this in third to mind signing this consent form so that there's no confusion later that you said it was okay for them here. Dick. It was so I didn't I couldn't really find like an appropriate time to do it. Some people I've managed to talk to before they got involved in their scenes or whatever. So I was able to get kind of introduce myself, and let them know what I was doing. But yeah, I didn't get as much footage as I'd like to. But I think. Out of respect for the people involved in for the sake that just filming some people putting that shit up on the internet could put somebody's life their job, their marriage, whatever in jeopardy, I just it was definitely better to avoid so out of respect for the people involved in for the kind of trust that they allowed me to go in and document any of this. I. I didn't really get very much footage. But anyways of what I did get you guys. We'll get to see that over the next couple of weeks. And saying that I mean, I definitely really appreciate that. These people sort of let me into their.

"So. Taking this back to Gorno whole full circle. Back to the whole concept of multi the whole reason. I started this podcast talking about multi is at your. It's a really good metaphor for the physical state of being that can be reflected in your mental state of being vice versa. Your mental state of rigidity stress distraction. Lots of many thoughts going on inside your head and confusion leads to physical ramifications in the real world. So some of the ways that I've learned to deal with this over the course of time when I was really drinking all the time and really miserable. I knew that drinking wasn't solving my problem because I was shamed of myself, and I felt really bad doing it. I just couldn't stop myself from doing it. So anyway, I've been fucking rambling for too long now, and it's time for me to go. But the main point of what I'm trying to get at here is. In my tie in general life. The core. Linking idea of all of these things is that if you can retain your sense of presence in the immediate present focus on what you're trying to do and not get wrapped up in chaos and bullshit around you. You will have a much more powerful focused effort on the thing that you're trying to do in particular. If you trying to work on something creative or working on a martial art or skill. You're trying to learn the more focused attention you can put into that. And not listen to the bullshit inside your head. The better off you're going to be in that situation. And also you're gonna find your way out of shitty situations better. Also, you're not gonna get wrapped up in the bullshit. And the chaos of the glitzy fame money bullshit that comes with trying to achieve success in life. Most of our misery comes from our attachment to an idea that we need to be a something or need to feel a something or need to make somebody else. Feel a something all. All of that. Should is bullshit. The only thing that matters. Is you being right? They're focused in present. With another person with yourself with thing that you're working on. If it helps you to remind yourself by saying get back to the center, maybe that will help you. I don't know at it's it helps me certainly helps me and fighting. I know that it makes me feel a lot more relaxed and calm when I'm fighting. And also now in me addressing my breaking of being sober. I suppose for the last three and a half years immi trying to figure out if that was a good thing or a bad thing a right or wrong. Or if I'm justifying the thing to myself or what the fuck is going on. I'm realizing now that like I guess having an attachment to idea or a way of being is even if it seems like it's a healthy positive way of being can also be detrimental to your personal growth instead of voiding situation and letting this call thing kind of be a cloud over me. I am trying to suppose find a way of managing all of life's nuances in and out with focus and attention and seeing how they go. Try not to let things get too out of control. And try not to let something control me to the point where I have to say, no, I don't know. We'll see how it goes. Hope you guys have had a lovely Easter break or whatever if you do such a thing. Hope Jesus was good to you and your Easter baskets, and if you like the content of this podcast or any other podcast, you can go to learn about dot com slash support.

But some people are just better at not listening to 'em by sitting down with people asking them questions, and then courting blasting it out on the internet. Perhaps maybe I can help other people like me get out of our own. Guys. Welcome back to closure. Optional I don't have a guest for you this week. This week's guest is me. I am going to be talking. Some rather probably unqualified talking as usual about philosophy. And this one particular we're going to be talking about the philosophy of presence and balance or staying focused in the present. So I don't know there's a lot to it guys. And we're going to get right into it. But before we do that. I'll just give you a quick update on grateful, which it's the twenty first day of grape right now. It's actually Easter Sunday today. Happy Easter I've just returned from Bali yesterday and my brains a bit addled, but. I woke up this morning to allegedly text message from a friend saying happy star. So I realized that that must be Easter today. What were the focus? I am talking about. Oh, yeah. Grateful. It's the twenty first of April today, which means that we should be twenty one days into this challenge. And I think I've done three letters. What we're supposed to be doing was writing a single a-5 page letter to somebody every day that we interacted with. And the letter was a letter of gratitude. So just to write I don't know what we appreciate about that person in one a five page like literally should take you about five minutes to just write down. Hey, it was nice the way that you. Said Hello to me today. I appreciate you stopping and helping me with whatever the fuck it was what this like, it's so easy. And for some reason, I can't fucking do it, obviously, I've had hectic month, we Molina, and I have both been crazy. Busy this month with national championships me doing some more video projects and flying to Indonesia to see my brother, get married or one of my brothers. I should say, and yes, so it was all fucking bit chaotic. This no excuse though. And I don't know I think we might have to replay this month of gratitude again when we're not so ungrateful. So I have done fuck all about it. I'll try I've got another week left of this month, so focus now this week on making sure I write one letter every single day just so at least I can kind of finish the month out strong next month. We're calling it may venture. And we're going to go on an adventure every month. So that's exciting. But are giving more details on that. When we get closer to it. Also, this podcast is supported by people that listen to it a K A, you if you care to support the podcast, you can do that at you can go to Lorna, Bremner dot com and view your options or you can just go to learn a Bremner. Oh, sorry. Patriae dot com. PAT R E dot com slash Lorna Bremner, and you can pick your options there. It's five bucks a month. If you want to that helps me by the recording equipment that have got and fund my time and energy like these kind of podcast that I'm doing now, though solo podcast take me fucking embarrassingly long to prepare. I researched the whole thing. Right. It out. And then record it and get mad at myself every time, I say something stupid, and then rerecord it and. Takes time and energy. But I've fucking love doing it. That's always gonna be free. But if you ever want to contribute to the podcast, then by all means, please do go to their or just tell you friends. If you like one episode tell you friend shared around, whatever. I just over prefer that the people who like it and enjoy it are the ones contributing to it rather than getting sponsors for some shit that you guys don't give a fuck about. Because I've it's a domino. Ing Bill bird as a really great job. If you've never heard Bill Burs podcast. It's fucking great. But he does a good job reading his advertisement. So maybe. There's a ways around it anyways. Thank you for listening as always, and let's get straight into the meat of this podcast today. So today I wanted to talk about the philosophy of presence or what it's like to be consciously aware of your immediate experience. So that you don't become an asshole or possibly get accidentally trapped in a cult. In the current time. And this kind of runs off of our previous month of metatarsal where we were doing mindfulness meditation every night. And so in the present time, we people generally call this philosophy mindfulness and mindfulness is rooted in ancient Hindu, and Buddhist philosophies pretty much almost every single religious tradition. That's ever existed generally starts with this core idea, and then it branches off into various religious organizations, and or colts that mango this idea manipulate it to give people more power what's off about it is that if you are practicing mindfulness or presence consistently it in theory should be the thing that stops you from getting sucked into a cult. But what's fucking weird about human beings is like the more that we come up with ideas of how to live. A better life. The more. We need to tell other people about it, and the more other people become attracted to you. Because you've figured out how to live more mindful present life, and then that gives you power. And then you forget how to be mindful and present present, and you end up being a fucking cult leader and start telling people that the only way to the only path to God is. I don't know your same in on their forehead like this. This is how call start is like somebody has a great idea. Somebody learns how to embody that idea and really kind of figures it out, and then they fuck and try and make money off of it or have sex with people off of it. So that's the subject today's podcast is I'm going to go into some details about how people end up getting sucked into cults and how we can avoid ourselves getting sucked into calls. And then I'm going to give you some cult ideas from the various cults that I've been sucked into overtime start with the first one and the one that I'm kind of most obviously annoyed at consistently and that's the Instagram implant center. So if you're following an Instagram influence, or and why would you, but if you are you may have heard some of these ideas in mindfulness in like, a cute little catchphrase things

"We've all got that voice in our head. That tells us we can't do stuff. But some people are just better at not listening to 'em by sitting down with us people asking them questions, and then according in blasting it out on the internet, perhaps maybe I can help other people like me get out of our own. Back to close your optional. My guest this week is Rohan Thomas. He who. He's a filmmaker presently. And he originally had a podcast was the only punk-rock podcast at the time in about two thousand and nine and he did it for a good long period of time before he stopped, and then started making documentaries, and I've always really respected what Rohan gets up to before. I even knew him as a person, I followed what DIY airless was which is the name of his podcast, and it just sort of in braced that simplistic, do it yourself punk rock sort of nature. If you have an idea, and you wanna fuck and do it. He'll find a way, and he'll do it. So super cool. He this documentary that he did is called the other option, and it follows a bunch of Australian punk bands and the punk music scene in southeast Asia. And how crazy it was that there was nothing going on down there. And then all of a sudden out of nowhere because of kind of poor Ozzy bands that just wanted to go over and get some. Exposure and get some playtime up when over there all of a sudden, they created this kind of massive scene of southeast Asian punk and hardcore so. This is really really fun conversation. I don't know there's all kinds of troops being told all kinds of ideas about what it's like to be a creative person. What it's like to be a human being in general, and how to push through all the bullshit that gets in our way. This is the Pitta me of exactly what this podcast is about is about to people who barely know each other telling a lot of real truthful things and having a deep conversation about how to be better people for ourselves and for the craft that we're trying to do. But I I should warn you the my fuck and microphone. I don't know. What's going on with it? My mixer is old. It was thankfully, given to me by friend, but it is fucking old in heating up. And every once in a while just one of the microphones drops out like just doesn't record any sound and have with his podcast camp. The camera. They computer also stopped recording. So there's a tiny bit of sound issue for the first three minutes. But then it does seem to sort itself out. So it's fine after that just bear with me if it is annoying. Don't worry you just it's does get better after about three minutes. All right. So we'll get into the pockets just quickly before I go. Someone did mention to me that this would be important for me to mention this before the podcast starts and not at the end.

He started a podcast in two thousand and nine, and it was it's it's funny that it's like when stopped in two thousand and thirteen because I wanted to stop issuing visual stuff and filmmaking documentary filmmaking and all that sort of stuff. It was funny that that's when it took off roughly two thousand thirteen when I said I've had enough is when it was like, and then within the next two years, everyone was doing one everyone was talking

"So. That leads us to the concept of charity, or whatever you if you want to go out and do something helpful to somebody else. That's exactly what that is. You are giving out a shitload of strokes for other people and the amount of gratitude that you'll get back for somebody that actually genuinely need your help. And you're willing to give it you will feel so internally satisfied. I think those are kind of the direction that you want to go to you do need recognition. But instead of opting for the kind of cheap. Packaged ready made variations of recognition. I e posting a picture on Instagram than waiting for likes. You will probably much more satisfied him better off by just having a chat with your neighbor. When he's walking the dog. All right. Geez. That's fifty minutes of me rambling fucking shit. Thank you as always for listening. I fucking love doing these solo podcast. They're so fun for me. It is. I never really know if I'm making any sense, though. So by all means, please do send me your comments questions feedback. Whatever you want because I would love to know that if what I'm saying makes any sense, or as helpful or not helpful or whatever. And then I can go into further detail on any of these things of shit didn't make any sense. It's tough because I invent these ideas in my brick shed by myself, and I don't actually have any idea if they make any sense go inside and tell them to Molina, and she goes, yeah. That sounds all right. And then come back in here and record it and probably say, something totally different. So. This is the thing about a podcast is that when I have another human being in the room. I can see their face. I can see whether I'm rambling shit or not. But when I'm talking to you, this strange is out there on the internet. I have no idea it's making any sense. Anyway, I will continue on with this subject. Another day. I'll go into more detail about what the ego states are some tangible ways of trying to identify your ego states and get out of them. So you stop repeating destructive behavioral patterns, but for now that is the end of it. I'll be back next week with a lovely new guest. And again, I'm sorry about the delay for this podcast because. I was fucking brain dead on Sunday. It was all too hard. And now been throwing up in the middle of the night. You know, things happen.
