"And i am here this lovely monday morning with both david guillaume and marcus weston. We'll hear from momentarily. This is the third episode that we art doing on the topic of food eating nutrition and we are focusing this week on spiritual weight loss and that that title may be a little bit misleading. It might be exactly what we're gonna talk about depending on where you are coming from this morning or wherever whenever it is. You're listening to this episode. The weekly energy boost is a seven day spiritual energy forecast. We use the wisdom of kabbalah to glean and curate the most powerful and practical wisdom and tools for our listeners. And this our podcast is intended for anybody whether you are on a spiritual path or not. Study kabala or not. This is really an introduction to how powerful and how practical the wisdom of kabbalah can be and this month we've been focusing on eating and food because as as Any parents or any leo's will tell you. Food is important. We're we're smack dab in the middle of the month of leo and The our our focus has really been on consuming. How do we consume what we consume and why we consume it so. This week's episode is really focused more on a couple of fundamental principles that i'm going to introduce today and then we'll hear from our fabulous co guests I think first and foremost the important teaching to start with is that the body is a reflection of the soul that the cabinet teach as above so below and there is a a journey that the soul takes in each lifetime whereupon it picks the body that it's going to be housed in the body is the temple for the soul and it cannot do. Its work without that vehicle without that physical mechanism. Not only to go from here to there. But also the body is used as the conduit for energy even though the soul is experiencing the connection the body as the mirror of the soul as the house of the soul engages in actions or lack of actions that either connect us or disconnect us and one of the examples. We brought up in the first episode. Was how but in prayer right we sit. When we're manifesting energy so to the cabalists talk about the importance of sitting down to eat. And how both are connected to manifestation of energy. We stand in prayer when we are throwing the fishing line to connect with whatever we'd like to draw and then when we want to manifest it we seat we sit ups. But that's really what we do. We're casting our line and then we really is when we're seated and so when we look at our physical body and there's all different kinds of teachings that we can get into even with regard to meditation the calculus teach we meditate. We should not cross arms and legs because both our arms and legs are conduit for energy. And we don't wanna cross those wires so as we look at what it means to be spiritually healthy and to consume things. That are spiritually support. And i use the word consume because we're not only talking about food we're talking about media we're talking about what we read. We're talking about Where do we hang out. All of those are components of how we consume. What nourishes us. David brought up a really cool Point last week where he was saying that you know when you consume different food groups if all the different food groups have different energies. And if you don't know what i'm talking about you can go back to last week's episode so imagine you're consuming three different kinds of foods three different kinds of energies. What what kind of spiritual to quote david mishmash does that create in the body and therefore in the soul so one of the things we want to examine this week is how our energy impacts our physical being and vice versa. I was i was test. I tested a lot of different things physically. And i always like to see impact spiritually and of all the different ways. I'm tried to deal with food or dieting or exercise. There's one that has worked very well. And i talked to other people and they all say the same thing. I'm curious as to why. I'm not curious. I i did see what the spiritual side of of this is is portion control and not overeating meeting. You can eat what you wanna eat to some extent but as long as you eat it in moderation that is going to maximize both the healing the body highest level of energy because food. What food does we think. Food provides energy food takes. Energy food is actually absorbing taking your body's power it. Your body requires energy to digest the food to break down the food to do what it needs to do. And if you think about it spiritually and all the different souls that exist within food. We talked about this sparks of light. Imagine that you have to like you have to like break break. Open this shell to take out the spark so even the soul has to do work to extract light that it needs so the more food we give the body. We think it's more fuel more energy but actually it's the opposite. It takes energy. What why do we say not to eat right before bed if anything give give more nutrients to your body right before bed so that you can sleep better and it's the office at that if your body needs to energy to break down food while you sleep than the body's not using the energy to heal throughout the night so portion control which pretty much means not eating until you're stuffed is both a physical marvel and also backed by spirituality so again we're not talking about dieting and not eating a whole day and then all of us in binge eating because that's a reactive. Most diets can be reactive because you deprive yourself and then you try to make up for that deprivation by binging and opposed to dealing with what's really going on inside of why why we have this cravings but you know just just eating to the point where you know you've given your body exactly what it needs and not giving it more so that it sucks energy from the rest of you. What do you think about that. Well marcus welcome to the microphone. Marcus west well. I go to say first of all. It's just lovely to be here in los angeles. It's even lovelier to be on any shiva. Gm show recording. These can use but the most exciting thing to be here just talking about food and the problem seven. Nice lunch after. Tell you where i invite. Markets electric gave last night. You say i question. Yes is food and i. Yeah but like amazing people and just to be clear. I couldn't actually go and my uber him. The food from the event he literally said you over the phone attendants. Can you bring me back some sushi. So so i feel very qualified to sit here today. Both perhaps wearing a kubota hat But also i have many food issues. i'm a food or hollick. I'm obsessed by food really. I mean that very literally to the point where where. I have difficulty eating other people's food because probably isn't prepared with the exact. I find that when you become expert in anything it's interesting. I was playing tennis this morning. And you kind of think about the idea that the person i was playing against could tell exactly from my stunts and my grip and my back swing everything good and bad about my game and and a new executive strengths and weaknesses. Were and i think if you have an obsession about something and you become great in that area and the the expansional depth of your capacity to understand the otherwise invisible components are clear to you and so the palette of foodie or conserve. Have you go to. I went up to the one of the wine herzog. Wine cellar right or regional mostly to ease actually and just hearing about the somalia right now is fascinating because this guy clearly can can taste ten grapes and know exactly what percentage of what group to put with what to create fantastic wine outputs and and it's just extraordinary..

"To this week's weekly energy boost. My name is Alicia and I'm here this morning with David and we are all geared up to share with you the secrets to manifesting your goals. Last week, we spoke about creating goals and the best practices on UH in order really not only from our experience but from the ancient wisdom of Kabbalah, we talked about how to properly and effectively get the highest aspirations out in the most practical and positive way. That's what we do here at the weekly energy boost. Every episode is a seven day spiritual energy forecast. Last week was really the you know the the universe was really supporting us to create and to see to have a vision of what we're capable of this week we wanNA focus on. Making sure that those that a month into the gym membership, we're not sitting on the couch eating potato chips. So to speak the colloquial couch so this week is all about nuts and bolts. It's about you know recognizing from the previous year where we fell short and how we still have this this opportunity we spoke about the. I think the last four or five episodes we spoke about how we have this ability to reflect and transform what whatever happened in the past year that doesn't that didn't get us where we wanted to go and we have one more week left of that. Possibility that opening to to US last year as the catapult for this year. So we're going to be talking about today is how to make sure that everything that we desire for our self in the coming year manifests. Yes, you said that this year I'm sorry this week is There's an opening in the upper worlds where. We have the ability to access parts of ourselves in an easier way that we've never had before the capitalist say that there's actually ten days according to the ten dimensions are soul. And we've. We've we've. We've already this is the third day right. So this is the third day of US accessing the deeper part of ourselves for anyone who wants to make a change or who wants to draw strength or who wants assistance because. We're not convincing the light of the Creator to be good to us I think sometimes in literature on the Bible it's written that way as if I need to convince the external force to behave a certain way towards me. When we say that we pray the whole class about prayer and Kabbalah Juan when we say we pray that we request that we ask that we beg for Assistance Energy. Essentially, what we're doing is we're were causing a transformation to occur within us. The way our soul is designed is that every time we pray we change that's basically what happens when you ask for something you change your spiritual and physical DNA inside of you. Now, there's different levels and degrees of asking a person can nonchalantly. Just say I would like something versus someone who says I I really, I really want something and versus something else that the cabalists say that imagine a person is on the way to their execution and they're begging for their life right this is the highest level of asking wanting what that does is it creates some difference inside of you, which then allows the infinite light of the Creator, which is always there to come in. That's not an extreme example, it all not an extreme example. What of that one of the images I I give to students in the classes is. Imagine you take this bottle of water that's empty. I've ever shared this before the. Bottle of water that's empty and there's a cap on it so. Just an empty bottle and there's nothing can go in or out and you take this bottle of water and you shove it. Under water. And, now, it's imagine you put it in the pool of water. So now there's water coming from all sides putting pressure on the bottle but because the cap is on the bottle, it cannot come in the water cannot come in, but there's pressure there's pressure and all of us when we feel pressure in our lives Kabbalah says, this is called the surrounding light. It's light that is our potential it is light that might. Be represented as a new relationship it's light that might be represented as prosperity and sustenance clarity an and sir, you want an answer about a question you have and you don't know what the answer is whereas the answer the answer is in your surrounding lights go back to the bottle. The bottle is us we have a cap on we are under water. The water represents all that we want the we don't have yet. And the water is trying to get in. Why this pressure and that's why people stress and pressure. We have a whole class about stress and pressure. That's a stresses. When you feel stressed you can't sleep and you having Zaidi. It's because the light is pressing on you saying, reveal me reveal me that is the nature of the light to fill where a gap or there's a hole. The light doesn't punish. We are the ones who have the CAP on. Now, what happens the moment you remove your cap? The water rushes into the bottle and fills the bottle. How do you remove the CAP? That's what prayer is you pray when you ask requests from the bottom of your heart for assistance transformation for clarity for certainty. You remove the cap from your bottle and then the light the. So to speak the water rushes in to you and this is the best week. This is the best week to request pray because the cap is maybe the cap is a little loose, right? Now, we have the opportunity to. Just gotTa you just gotTa take the rest of the distance. Well, I love what you said because for me when it comes to the concept of getting what we want. There is there are a lot of us out there. That are wishers, right? We wish what you know I wish for More. Money bigger house the better relationship by I wish for a lot of things but. I think it was that we had a show about this last jake in here his voice. We had Marcus West as their wishers and there are doers right and the the differences, and this is something that I have heard my teacher speak about endlessly is that you know wish is a really nice thought..

Well anyways I think that we're going to go hit and jump on into these stories. Well you go first. It's Tom because okay. Well mine is all Marcus West. Alka Nath Road. I'm still horses to take. I'm going to have to take a drink of course because my throat so Gupta I heard comes good for your throat. But I'm not trying wildwood anybody. He'd be no that that's what I was told all right. I'm GONNA DO Marcus Wesson. And he's known as the Vampire King of Fresno the date March twelfth. Two thousand four this. He looks a mess picture. This officers are called to a scene. A West Hammond Avenue in Fresno California where a heated argument over custody breaking out. Once they're officer speak to Ruby Ortis and SOFINA Solorio along with some family members who are with them. They are worried to the point of panic. Claiming their children are being held captive inside the rundown office building. They are adamant that the man inside their uncle Marcus Wesson. It's going to hurt their children. So the police knock on the door to speak to Wesson and try to resolve the issue. A titanic which means a big motherfucker of a man with grain dreadlocks down to his waist. Nappy answers the door. How much you weigh fo o about wandered about the bat right? Turn not a follower what he say whenever they answered the door. Well you do miss. He was calm and cooperative. He agreed to turn over the children but he wants to tell him goodbye. I So we asked the officers to wait right there. White Rot there. Let me go us on Google car and closed the door. Nope well the neighbors later. Say that they heard gunshots. But but but the police deny hearing anything or whatever warrants without a warrant or any indication that there's a safety issue. The police don't have the authority to enter the Western House. So they wait however let me tell you they wait for nearly an hour and a fucking half. I think so. I don't care if I hear anything. It don't take an hour and a half to say Gerber no give. He was taking okay. They came to take the children. They came there and check out because people were frantic that he was going to hurt that. You Okay and they go and not to take children there. They were there to check on it. Okay take children or whatever but they not on the door. He answers looking like a fucking mess with dreadlocks down. Conway's loot like he's on crack right as a I'll turn or let me go by and then shut the door. They're like okay less. He can't go back an hour and a half later. They really that makes no sense. Some police officers are stupid whenever they're in training and have to endure the whole tasers test. I think it does something to their brain. Oh so I think so. Okay at least these author because we're tired after nearly an hour and a half full. Wesson walks out the front door but his clothes were covered in blood as he surrenders to the arresting officers. Other officers rush inside the House Am I. I think if it was an hour and a half now definitely you just hope. I'm maybe the Dory I don't care if I would have gotten if you would have gotten in any trouble. They love to make up stuff like some love to make up things about what happens in order for them to search a car or go into a household but yeah something about police insertion a call. This we'd way this what you always talkin. Oh but yeah this time. They can't make up. I don't like this. I can't see they can't make up a fricken story for them to go in and search the Damn House and the neighbors they did he that they heard gunshot and -opoly that but the police didn't hear none whatever their full shit anyway inside despite the sunny afternoon they just kill them children. That's what they did. They killed them. The building is dark and silent against one wall. Several coffins are stacked up then. They enter a back room inside that back room. Covered in blood is a pile of bodies. M- the vessel in any horror. Movie You've learnt never enter evacuating some of which are children each had been shot through the APP but because the bodies were in such a tangle it took many hours before the police could even determine how many victims there were and it was several days before they were all identified. Once they were these were the victims. That were stacked one on top of each other..
"marcus west" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Briefing
"Review the day's papers. Now I'm joined in the studio by monocle Nichols Own. Have Been Ryan and Ben Good afternoon. Shall we start with a newspaper from your home city of Melbourne. That's right Marcus. West starting with the age and as quote a tense situation going on in Australia at the moment regarding the Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Now this is actually. Concerning one of his ministers the Energy Minister Angus Taylor Angus. Taylor has been in a bit of hot water recently. After he claimed that a lot of money being spent by a particular council in the State of New South Wales ells on on travel expenses. Now he was. He said in parliament that he was relying on a particular document that showed the the expenses had gone into the millions. It appears that whatever whether this document was that he was relying on May have been a forgery now data as obviously angered a lot of people One of the Labor Opposition politicians then called for an investigation into Mr Taylor has been taking place. The story of gotten the age today concerns. Scott Morrison the prime minister making a phone call to the police. Commissioner a New South Wales to ask about the substance of the investigation. Now you do generally don't do that. Needless list to say that has said a lot of people on fire. They're now saying that. The prime minister is trying to influence the investigation. The police commissioner for his part said that he he had seen the phone ringing several times on Tuesday morning but had ignored the cold because he didn't recognize the number so it does seem that even Scott Morrison Orthon has been having a bit of trouble getting through to the police commissioner but regardless this conversation has taken place and the prime minister certainly seems to be on the back foot over in And in other news the former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is making headlines as well. You've got the conrete indeed now. This story is well. It was rather tens about twenty twenty years ago of the story now consents the twentieth anniversary of the referendum. That Australia took to decide whether it would become a republic break away from the Commonwealth. Say It's it's time is up for You Majesty. The Queen and elect our own Australian head of state. Australia voted no on that but it was the beginning beginning of political career for Mr Malcolm Turnbull. He was later of that referendum campaign and he was present at this dinner. That took place last night in Canberra Dan Rutz who marked twenty years since the vote and he said that look obviously the the the momentum that led to this referendum still exists in Australia. There are still a lot of people who say we should be a republic. The questions are just we don't know how to do it The and Mr Turnbull has been saying that if if this question were asked again if if it were put to the people once again we need to work out what the model would be a not was really the thing that killed the referendum in the first place A lot of people agreed that we should eight eighty sensible for Australia to have its Iron Australian head of state but no one could quite agree on how that person would be elected and they'd actually do Hogan senses. Is this topic for example when you are in Australia. Meet your friends to discuss with Australia's Abuna public or not now. Most people have a bit of a giggle about it. Actually because the the queen doesn't really have anything to do with this training politics as it is the role of the Governor General which is essentially what the president would be if we were a republic. It's purely ceremonial. The only consequential thing the governor general has ever really don would be to sack the government in the nineteen seventies and of course not quite controversial especially if you're a Prime Minister Whitlam But ever since then it it really is a ceremony on your role. No one really gets upside about this very much and I. I do think that's why. A lot of people have reservations about changing the system because Australian politics ease for the most part ah very plain sailing very on controversial. We don't really have extremes on either side of politics. I mean they're they're they're have an awful lot of power sir. I think there are a lot of people who think let's just leave it as it is daylight savings in the other hand. Are they controversial as a topic. You've got a story from the Sydney morning. Herald my goodness Marcus. This is one of the most controversial topics you could possibly raise in his The moment As as you would probably know is well-known because we we talk about this here in in Britain to but there are a lot of people who don't like daylight savings Including it does seem the Labor leader in the State of New South Wales. Jodi McKay one of her constituents has has written to her saying that she would like daylight savings to be shortened or axed all moved. Because it's too hot to go walking in the park in an evening She complained that. Come eight o'clock in the evening. She would like to go for a gentle stroll in a local park. It's still hovering around forty degrees absolutely ridiculous. We should change the times to make cool things going to happen now. I'm not sure I don't have this. I don't know why get so controversial. I I suspect there are a lot of people who misunderstand. What daylight savings actually is the article here in the Sydney Morning Herald is it's quite enlightening? Actually about why people get so uptight about it. There are several reports some of them. Say daylight savings bad for climate. Change others say that it leads to a rise in robberies and so on He's just a list of some of the things that have been attributed due to change of time. A full in robberies increased petrol sales a- jump in heart attacks less milk being produced by cows. And you'll curtains uh-huh fading faster which is terrible news. I suppose if you're really into drapery I don't really see the logic in this to be on Marcus. I'm pretty pretty sure that if you change the time it doesn't make the daylight actually longer but we will definitely be following this new story here. I WANNA go to four. Let's make sure if that's Ben Ryland. Thank you very supporting a serum articles and follow and finally. Today's Bro Chronicles.

Would we want to get into into it all right of so just a little a little disclaimer. We are talking some pretty lead heavy subjects this week. We're doing true crime episodes. It's going to be a little bit heavier than last week. which was bigfoot pun intended Taller? bigfoot episode was definitely later than this one. Yeah this one's going to be heavy so we decided tiffany and I decided to kind of at the top of the heavier episodes. We're just GONNA start calling them top shelf episodes right Yup not as our warnings if we say it's top shelf episode so that means triggers it. There's going to be all kinds of triggers so this week we had planned on doing a family family when family kills family and we both ended up on true crime cases where the parents harm children so by the accident. I didn't know that we were GonNa both end up picking parents. Yeah we did so. This is just like a trigger warning we are going to be discussing child abuse in graphic detail. Tell so just a little heads up if you are going to be triggered by that. Please stop listening. If you're not going to be triggered like that anyone anyone here about these true crime cases. Please keep listening well. Now that we have our top-shelf warning yeah let's go ahead. You go first. Yeah let's get into it all right so before I start I Actually I have two things. We have new mikes so. We hope that it sells better. Oh yeah one more really stepping it up in the world. Yeah I also wanted to say something that I have meant to say after an episode. We've we did previously A lot out of the episodes we do touch on religion and how we roasted. Oil is in particular roasted analysts's parent. Yeah Yeah I mean I I. I don't know how that came off. I just want to say that I hold the no judgment against any religion or person who has religious beliefs. I hope that none of our episodes come off as like disparaging people of faith. I'd like I know that people that actually know me I wouldn't have to say that too like they would know that I would that I would never judge somebody's you know religious beliefs but it's kind of hard because we're in this weird situation where strangers could be listening adding to us and I just want to make sure that people know that we're not no judging religion or anything like that now unfortunately really a lot of the episodes that we do the people use religion as an excuse or a reason to do horrible things. Yeah and that's GonNa come up in in what I'm about to talk about. Yeah so I felt like I should say something. Yeah you do you really. Yeah as long as you're not hurting anybody yet you. We don't really long if you're hurting. Somebody yelled if you're just you know living life being a good person doing whatever you WanNa do in. Yeah no didn't here. We just happened to be talking about true crime cases that involve people who exploited religion to take advantage of other people in that friends is not okay in my book in any way. No Okay so now that we've done so many disclaimers in you guys are like. What the fuck can you talk about your stories Let's get to it. All right. You go go went okay go pick My sources are CNN. Murder Pedia on medium article by Delaney Marlet and a little bit of the a little bit of the Fresno Bee fifteen years ago. It crime crime shook the city of Fresno California years of horror culminated in a tragedy that still haunts the city today. Discussing the crimes of Marcus. Wesson Insert dramatic sound effect done. That was good. That's exactly what I wanted. So Marcus. Weston was born on August twenty second nineteen forty six. I didn't find that much about his life before adulthood. All that I pretty much found it was which is like it for me. One of the most interesting parts of cases like these people that do shit like I'm always interested to is it was it nature or nurture or both and I think that that's the thing that people are trying to constantly trying to figure out like how much of nature how much pressure because some people can handle so much stuff and some people are like can handle nothing before breaking many frontal lobe head injuries. Before you start. That's true I this guy. I don't know if you had a head injury but I'd like to give them one. Yeah yeah the one thing that everything say was that. He grew up in a religious household with the strict father. Other than that. I don't really know much But I think by all accounts he was a kid. He ended up joining the army and was stationed in Europe up and there was no news. No bad stories about his time in the military after his stint in the army he moved to San Jose in Europe yet he was stationed in Europe. I believe he was editing. I think he was a medic. Maybe Transylvania after a stint in the army moved to San Jose it was nineteen sixty eight in San Jose he moved in with a woman named Rosemary May Tarinah Rosemary always. It's a full circle. Everything is a full everything's connected and Rosemary had an eight year old daughter during this time Western claimed God was speaking came to him. He was in his he was in his mid twenties. This is not going to be good. This is why disclaimer He was in his mid twenties by this time in he and Rosemary had awesome together also soon after living in this household western to begin telling Rosemary's eight year old daughter Elizabeth that she belonged to him and that God wanted them to be married. God Mike already flick fully enraged at I mike two sentences in. I'm Mike I can feel the veins like looking when Elizabeth was fifteen she and West married apparently what her mother's blessing man they were already having sex. I think she might. I have been pregnant when they got married. My what would terrible terrible terrible parents. The the mom was like. Oh God told you okay. We'll chill western. Lesson ended up having ten children with Elizabeth his stepdaughter. Yes so they were because he was never technically married to her mom but yeah the stepdaughter. Yeah okay by porce sweet baby so she was. She had pretty much less than like her entire life like she met him when she was eight. And no this was pretty much all the mom knew to okay Also this is just so like irony in the worst way Elizabeth sister. Her sent her seven children to live in the Western household. Because she couldn't properly care for them. I believe that they were getting molested at her household so she sent them to live with Western. I and Elizabeth Wait Rosemary sister or Elizabeth says Elizabeth Sister Elizabeth is the step daughter Elizabeth daughter Yes Elizabeth. Mary had another daughter. Yes but Elizabeth Elizabeth is Marcus West wife in this whole story okay. Rosemary's out of it. Okay so yeah just like hanging out the living room or she still staying there living there. No I think they like moved out. I believe after they got married so so there. I'm so sorry I I decided to get this straight circuit understand so wesson met rosemary yards. Mary had an eight year old daughter. West wasn't married the eight year old daughter when she was finishing kick Rosemary Rosemary Yes what man. Elizabeth had a sister who sent her seven children to also live with Elizabeth and lesson. Today at Seventeen gives there at one point. Yes yes. Please give monster mutually condone first Brady Bunch. Yeah it's horrible odd Over the next twenty years. Here's the Western family lived in existence of isolation secrecy and horror all at the hands of Western so nominee get into a little bit of just their life. Okay Western never had a job living instead off welfare until much later on when his children could be sent to work and then they would give their money to lessen the large family. And I'M GONNA use the word family but this is not a family. The large family moved from place to place to avoid suspicions. Shin's they lived in a boat for a few years..
"marcus west" Discussed on You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes
"There's an endless series of social experiments in porn is another one morning. I know in the seventies for us to get porn. I mean it was just a mad search for like three or four magazines with some boobs in it yeah. Oh my God and that was that was it and now you in your pocket supercomputer. There's you can have a donkey face fucking Romanian because we become novelty addicts. It's not just sex becomes. It's nothing we have straight people watching gay porn because the taboo turns them on so. I mean like what where does lead yeah but also the mirror but to continue with the marijuana when like it's like all of a sudden let's just legalize it and must be okay and you can't. Od Marijuana but that doesn't mean that it's necessarily league good for you and I've met a number of marijuana addicts ten fifteen years out of using marijuana that are just their lives Iraq and he the same thing about about alcohol. I suppose but I worry for you. Youngins and you millennials that have just had kind of unlimited distraction action unlimited porn unlimited nicotine and unlimited unlimited marijuana but it actually is a spiritual issue because it goes back to the idea that everything you need is outside of. You and it's all about sense gratification. y'All sense. Gratification is a fucking fool's errand. That's what I'm saying like. Finding Bliss in the inherent inherent stillness of being is the only game in town. I don't care how you symbolize it. How you worship at how you practice that's the only game in town because if you just go around trying to feel good to anesthetize you're fucked and that's the story we're being sold. Get rich get a bunch of we get a bunch of booze. Get a bunch of whatever you're attracted to and guess what you're GonNa. Wake up and just be like what is this. Russell brand talks about this so articulate. Sorry Okay No. I hadn't been silly for a while. yeah bring it up the but his he's got a great book called recovery and also all all the ways we try our selves numb escape anesthetize and a lot of it is stuff to its shopping. That's right but that's why Eker Tony says like when a kid when you take something coming from a kid and they scream it's because we have this part of our brain that believes this is. My coffee becomes part of our identity. Even porn is an identity issue. It reinforces the idea that you exist that you're real. This turns me on something is happening. I'm coming I exist. It's an identity thing it's because we're so afraid of who we are when all that stuff goes away and then you're getting drunk and you're seeing how drunk am. I getting high. I am I it's just somebody said all of humanity's problems stem from the fact that you can not sit quietly in a room and I was like that's fucking a mother fucking it Wilson Twenty nineteen he he just setup I deal. I struggle with that I do too. Why do you think I got so worked up. I don't I certainly struggle with if anything that Medicaid Nesta ties as me but I also struggle with the fact that you know being celebrity being an actor kind of trying to get fame fame now. I never tried to get famous but I tried to get to be successful as an actor like I never do anything for myself. You know I don't write poetry that no one's GonNa read read. You know I don't I do meditate because it quells my anxiety and it gives me sharper clearer focus throughout the day so there's there's a cost benefit analysis to it but I don't do do anything like make pottery or I hear people talking about like yeah. I just love gardening for the sake of itself itself. I like gardening. You like planting lanting things in scraping dirt rain when seeds in dirt and then no one even sees it and when I went to the park right by your house because I was early and I looked at a tree and activities like dropped the label right don't label at a tree just look at it without thinking about it and just experienced the tree and it was beautiful it was it was rapturous. It was wonderful and then there's this voice in my head going after the podcast. You don't really have anything you would come back and look at the you know what I mean. I'm like just look at the tree now aw like everything has to be like land to really like it. Later motherfucker dislike it. Now it's happening now. That's a thief. That's a thief thief of joy that's right and but also that happens to me. I had a couple free hours yesterday and I just laid on the couch in my office when I was like for nothing. Nothing just look at the light look at the room. Let it come in. That's I can't do the you know I can't do that you. That's what I'm saying. I can't do it. I really struggle with that. The reason I told you that I did it was because it doesn't have to be as sexiest gardening in in fact I would say that the the wrote flow of gardening could just be like it's like the guy that climbed Free Solo. I was like hey wanted to show his brain off. It's it's just another way of meditating It's a moving meditation. That's not as romantic I think as you were saying the guy who climbed that mountain he could have just laid on his couch and looked at dust motes in the air absolutely but I I think his brain is like look at the interview. It's trending towards the relational. That's a guy that needs to shut his brain off and it's like the only thing that's going to get me away from myself as risking my life. I need to I need the focus. That's why I totally says we love Marcus. West break and in order to like follow what I'm saying. You need to really really devote it close attention to what are you going to miss that and that's meditation. He's really good that you should have your own youtube. Everyone I was saying some bullshit but it pinpoints your attention. It draws in your gardening distraction world. That's right yeah so people that are watching some are. It's not just like it's not a new new thing. It's like an IT's a new way of doing. What Meditation is what mindfulness is. What presence is but we have to trick ourselves into doing it because like you said I have nine billion hours streaming but come shots in my phone yeah at the point of a button crazy yeah all right. You're out of time. You're out. Lock your time and everyone does the cow. Say what was your song again cow. I think the answer the phone cow giving birth and it would be my friend and go. How did you know it was and I was like it took a chance. I did say did you. We should do a longest you make it weird. I feel like how we keep going. I gotta go you gotta go half an hour. You know okay well. We have the speed round and it'll take probably half. Let's do it in what is what is the greatest lesson. You were talking about all this great acting stuff you've done. I'm curious. What a great lesson. You've learned about acting as could be advice. Someone gave you or something that you figured out so. It's a story that I've that was pretty profound to me. which was that? I got cast in my first Broadway play. I was like twenty seven twenty eight and I put so much pressure on my shoulders that I sucked in that Broadway play and I thought oh I'm going to get a Tony nomination. I'm an at sign William William Morris Agency. I'm going to get a New York Times review all this pressure and it's all I could think about so it was not in the moment in nursing PA- character and I sucked and I was really bad out and you can find the reviews online and and when I came out of that and I I was a miserable experience. There's nothing worse than knowing you suck being being in play that you saw. Can you have to do it for two or three months. You have to go do eight shows a week and you know you're terrible inigo. Suck tonight and yeah and you can't get out. I got a little better. Everybody couldn't get out of really sucking because I hadn't rehearsed it right so when I and I was sobbing to my wife on the phone phone at night and it was it was a terrible terrible ordeal but when I got out of that I let go of trying to be something. I'm for someone else as an actor like I need to be myself. I'm weird. I have a long torso. I have a belly I get my clothes at thrift stores or I used to and this is who I am you know and I need to bring that into. Oh my work as an actor and I truly and I tell this story to tell a longer version of this story when I speak to young actors and stuff like that because my my greatest failure of my entire acting life to that point we can talk about the rocker. Being one of the worst movie box office is bomb of all time is that true yeah led to me playing Dwight because I embraced my inner weird and the and that allowed me to play those character those oddball characters and not really give a fuck what people the thought of me and opened the door for that my greatest success so my greatest quote unquote failure was actually like those tests and difficulties. You talked about suffering rain by one of my greatest sufferings. It was three months old yeah. It's like you have done stand up yeah. That's what stand ups have on actors is that I mean actors have plenty of suffering yeah. I didn't mean to put it that way. Yeah no no no we get our butts kicked him constant I still do I still got yeah. Last night wasn't great not great. I was doing and it was like Oh. Oh how do you feel like because people recognize you from TV now so it's a little different that they like you anyway. Because you're celebrity Pete Holmes a celebrity not Pete Holmes these struggling aspiring stand with Seinfeld says as you get thirty seconds of grace and then it's like okay. What do you say for me. Maybe ten seconds. There's not people that are just there. If Pete Holmes these great he could say anything. I love his podcast a Stephen so great on crashing yeah. Maybe it's my show. There's a bigger cushion but I was guessing on someone else's show there wasn't as much electricity yeah for sure yeah and I realized how much coasting on that electricity are relying on. It and that's what that's what it's like. When you're building in new hours you sort of need your fans to help you make that our and then you go and bring it to other other people in when it stronger now part of me wants to quit acting. There's part of me. I was talking to a bunch of people about they want to go to divinity school. I WANNA WANNA go get a masters degree in and leave it behind but then I'm too scared to do that and the money's too good enacting yeah really well yeah the what did you learn with the rocker. After the offense. The rocker was mid office. It was like during season three or four of the office office and you know we were really taking off. We were getting. I was getting Emmy Award nominations that I did not win. Oh you get back. Yeah it is. This is this egotistical of me. No one really sees it because no lead God's cert. Yeah you get a nomination certificate. I got three of them lost to Jeremy Piven the pips. There's a joke here in search of let's let the listener insert their own joke. Let's leave a moment of silence so odds there. We go and we're back so I had this you know the they was Steve. Grell had a big movie career and John. Krasinski was acting movies in Jenin everyone and so I had a shot and there was this terrific script the rocker it was a relief fund quirky. you know studio low budget studio comedy. I think we shot the whole thing for like thirteen million dollars in Toronto and they could chew Hornet in right before me coming back for the next season to the office and and they did it was a great cast. Emma stone was in it. Bradley Cooper was in it. Fred Armistice Josh Gad had a you know so many great Jane Lynch so many great actors in it and Demetri Martin and and it was a fun little movie but it was they had four different release dates for it and the kept moving when it was going to get release and they just dumped it and Labor Day weekend and it got bad reviews and they they they put it out like two thousand screens and you know if you look like like box office. Mojo you can look at like how much money it made her screen and it was like thirty seven dollars per screen or something like that and it was at the time one of the biggest box office bombs in Hollywood history well. It's now been eclipsed by about three hundred other movies as people it was kind of right at that time when people are starting to not go to movies anymore and just but that was brutal man it was it was brutal. This was like well you all. I was so wrapped in my ego so wrapped in my Saturday. Komo Satan insistent self this is it is going to put me on the map..
