"So self control kind of goes out the window. And so I just always encourage people. I'm like, if you like French fries, eat French fries. Maybe not every single meal every day. It's A-okay to have some French fries when you're wanting them. So those things like that seem to have boo. It's really important to allow yourself to have them. Because for one, you enjoy them and they are still fuel. And you don't have to earn those calories. Because you're a human being who needs them. And two, it's just like, it's so much better for your mental health to let yourself have them. I just have to interject and we'll go back to questions. But one of my very favorite days recently was I did this big huge gargantuan hike and when we were finished, we sat down with beer and a plate of French fries and it was Nirvana. So great. Anyway, back to script. I love it. I love it. So awesome. Well, that kind of feed dovetails into, I know you have a theory Joe of all food fits. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I used to all the time because again, I work with a lot of people who are pretty restrictive. And all foods, again, there are fuel, like a cookie can be used for energy, like a burger with greasy French fries is again used for energy. And it's there not just to fuel you, but also to enjoy food is essential to our lives and it's also cultural. It brings us together with people that allows us to connect. You sit around a table and talk with people and build relationships around food. That stuff is really important. And I think we often overlook that that we just want food to be just fuel. And it goes so far beyond that. And so reminding yourself, yes, this dude is going to fuel me and all of that, but it's also like, I want to enjoy time with friends and say no to things really limits that. And if you've ever seen someone who struggled with an eating disorder, you will one of the tall tales signs is they isolate. And they'll stop doing things with friends because they're afraid of those social settings. And that stuff is so important. It's so important. For building relationships for your mental health or your emotional health, that stuff is beautiful. So making sure, hey, all foods can fit in your diet, even if they're not perfect. It's totally fine and in fact encouraged in many ways. Love that. So in your Instagram feed, you reassure people who are concerned about gaining weight that you frequently see runners who learn to properly fuel actually lose weight. Can you kind of explain why that is? Totally, okay. So this is important to remember any time your body has been chronically under fueled. Your body's gonna go into somewhat of a protective state. For a lot of women, this manifests again in a minoria because it shuts down a reproductive system because our body can consider it non-essential, but often too what it will do it will store extra fat. And so if it's not getting the energy it needs, it's going to do everything it can to keep what it has because it's afraid of being deprived. It's our bodies way of surviving essentially. And so it's been really fun..

"It is, and it's why if this goes forward, we will do a show on it because I will tell you that the interesting argument that I would push back on, that their brief makes is, look, it was the photographing and being on the cover and being the sensation and all of that occurred in 1991 and you're going to say the pleading really says this. It says, you know, you're going to say that that continues every time they ship an album cover, but like the real harm was done to you back in 1991. And I think it's really tempting to take that position with Spencer here because this isn't child porn. But when I insert actual child porn and an actual victim in that circumstance, right? Totally beyond their side. Yeah. Yeah. As an infant and then distributes it every time that picture gets distributed is a new harm. Absolutely. And if the 100% like nothing we can do because the original harm was in 1991, yeah, no, we totally. We'd be up and be on this. Yeah, yeah, yeah, no, that's fair. It's just not child porn is the thing. This is the way in which you present your arguments when you're moving to dismiss as opposed to if you've got to move for summary judgment. You do not want it to be a factual question of come on. There's no prurient interest, right? Because Spencer is going to say, I will prove that it's brewery and interest, right? Right, right. And the court will be like, all right, there's a factual dispute on whether baby in a swimming pool that's in 30 million homes. What you want to say is, even if it is, this is time barred get out. And again, you know, you also see this is a judge who they have amended once, then they missed a deadline and the judge says, look, here's how I'm going to bend over backwards to get you back into court. Which illustrates kind of another OA argument, which is courts are very, very loath to take a technical rule and deny you access unless it's exceedingly clear and there are good public policy reasons for proceeding on that technicality. So that's why in addition to making a whole bunch of Nirvana jokes, I thought it was worth clarifying the continued misreporting over this. So, you know, yes, it was dismissed, but it was dismissed for a pretty understand. You shouldn't do it, but a pretty understandable misreading of the time deadlines. They're response was due in 8 days over Christmas, and they didn't get it filed in those 8 days. They're going to get a chance to file another complaint. The judge is pretty skeptical of that complaint, and we'll see what happens. So there you go. There will still be Nirvana on opening arguments. Oh, you know who's waiting with bated breath on this is, what's that product with the dogs like tugging the baby's swimming suit? That's like a baby butt. What is that? Yeah. What's that? Oh gosh. Yeah, it was a suntan oil. Yeah, that's what I thought. Yeah. The copper copper tone. Yeah, the cover tone folks are just really if they still exist. Really stressing out over this one. Do you think the industry of this will help you sunburn more still exists? Probably not. Yeah. I didn't remember what copper tone. So yeah. It's like butter on you to be. It was a butter, right? It was like sun tan oil. It's like when Newman goes after Kramer when he's got the butter on him. You smell like the chicken. Opening arguments is brought to you by blinkist. Hey, in 2022, which I'm told is the current year. Maybe one of your goals is to read more, or to be better more knowledgeable, smarter, more informed. If so, listening to this podcast is a great start, but I got another one for you. Blinkist. I read a lot actually. I listened to a lot of books, but there's always more books is the thing. This is mathematically provable. The number of books that you have time for is always going to be less than the number of books that are worth reading. That's just a fact. There are a lot of books in the world. And so one great way to squeeze in a few more and maybe many more is blinkist. Blinkist is a great way to take a book that you want to get the key insights from and deliver those insights in a short dose. That'll be basically as if you read the book, but without all the time. So again, this is a way to get more done. There's so many titles. Politics ones include what happened, fire and fury, a promised land, fear. I've blinked, fire and fury, for example, because I didn't need to read another Trump book, but I got the key insights from that. I got, for example, the details about how much Trump's inner circle of advisers were at constant odds with one another. The battling going on there. The fact that Trump wasn't at all prepared to win the presidency, stuff like that. You know, I didn't need to read the whole book. I used blinkist. And I suggest you do as well..

"Strictly as nudity is defined as coupling nudity with a prurient that is a sexual interest. That led to some weird allegations in this complaint about the, yeah, the dollar, it's a lot of prostitution thing, that stuff. Yeah. So for example, sick paragraph 68 says Nirvana decided to use a dollar bill on a fish hook as a prop after an extensive debate between the use of a dollar bill raw meat a dog or other objects commonly associated with prurient interests. What? Yeah, I don't mean to be a special little snowflake here. And I'm not gonna, you know, but raw meat. That doesn't make sense. It doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to me. There's our meat tie in, by the way, maybe the whole episode. There you go. Meat. Meat. This is a motion to dismiss based on the statute of limitations. And I'm going to talk about the merits of that in a second. But like any good lawyers and I'm not surprised that, you know, geffen records. Hired good lawyers to write a quality motion to dismiss. When the facts are really, really on your side, you find a way to work those in, even when they're not strictly relevant. So, for example, in talking about the statute of limitations, which begins from begins to run from the moment you know or should have known that the allegedly wrongful conduct occurred, it talks about how Spencer Eldon knew that he was the Nirvana baby from a very, very young age, right? Odin's father and Eldon himself publicly celebrated Elton's identity as the baby on the album cover in a series of articles published beginning no later than 1992. Album came out 91. For example, in 92, Elton's father sat for an interview with Entertainment Weekly in which he confirmed that his son was the Nirvana baby. In 2003, elden then 12 years old, gave his own interview in which he commented, every 5 years ago, somebody is going to call me up and ask me about never mind. And I'm probably going to get some money from it. In 2008, Eldon then 17 years old, joked on MTV about using never mind inspired pickup lines on girls, such as, hey, you want to see my penis again? I wonder if he had success with that one. What is it? I don't really know. The potential date being like, oh, oh, interesting. Tell me why I would be seeing your penis again. Are you somebody who's penis I've seen? That doesn't work, man. That's not a good, okay. In 2011, a 20 year old Eldon shared in another interview, being the Nirvana baby was always a thing I grew up with and has helped get my foot in the door for a couple of situations, which is always handy. When asked, have you ever thought about how many people have seen you naked? Elton responded, yeah, I've thought about that. It's like being a secret porn star, but not really, but it's not even porn. It's more like a Farrah Fawcett poster. It's also not like a fair fuss. No, not. No, that's real weird. It should definitely not be thought of that way. I might have one of the most famous penises in the music industry, but no one would ever know that to look at me. In 2016, a 25 year old told the New York Post that he voluntarily recreated the same photograph, including his proposal to do it naked. So my point on reciting that in addition to the lawyers knew that this would be something that people would find interesting. And indeed, we found it interesting. Could illustration on how when you have facts that are that strong on your side, you look for a way to incorporate those facts even where, as here, they're not directly relevant to a motion to dismiss because the statute of limitations has run. And the statute of limitations has plainly run on both of these counts. But that's not why the motion to dismiss was granted. The motion to dismiss was granted because Spencer's lawyers failed to answer in time. It was filed on December 22nd, and on January 3rd, the court issued an order that says he didn't file in time. So we're missing out the case. And as soon as I saw that, the news articles that actually got into the merits of why this case was dismissed interviewed his lawyer and said, yeah, we screwed up on the timing. There's actually a good reason why they screwed up on the timing. And that is, typically, you have 14 days to respond to emotion. So 22 plus 14 is 36, you would think that you would have had at least until January 5th to file your opposition. So why did the court throw this out on January 3rd? This is a really important illustration of why you get local counsel. Their lawyer, his office is in New York. He's admitted in California, right? So nothing improper here, but the local rules of this particular court, the U.S. district court for the central district of California, its local rule 7 9 says each opposing party shell, not later than ten days after the service of the motion in the instance of a new trial motion. Okay, that's not this. And not later than 21 days before the date designated for the hearing of the motion in all other instances shall serve upon all their parties and file with the clerk, their opposition. So although this was filed on December 22nd, it was set for oral argument on January 20th, and under that local rules instead of adding to the date that it was filed, you have to subtract backwards from the oral argument. That gives you December 30th to file your opposition and December 30th came and went and the judge was like, oh, well, you didn't file an opposition. So I'm going to default you. So the order dis grants the motion to dismiss. However, it is dismissed with leave to a man. Can you please oopsie daisies? Yeah, you can basically plead oopsie daisies. If plaintiff still wishes to pursue this action, he has granted until January 13th, 2022. File a motion of oopsie daisies, I think. A week from Thursday, a week from when we're recording this to file a second amended complaint attempting to cure to the extent he believes warranted by existing law, the alleged defects outlined in defendant's motion. And then it says, yeah, label it a second amended complaint, blah, blah, blah, blah. Your failure to timely file shall result in this action being dismissed. So you only get one oopsy daisies. You only get one fair, oopsie daisies, and it says, you should take seriously. The issues regarding statute of limitations. Specifically, it says. In preparing the second amended complaint, plaintiff shall carefully evaluate the intentions, set forth in defendant's motion. That's assertions that the plaintiff claims pursuant to 22 55 and 18 USC 1595 for time Bart. The court expects that defendants will agree to any amendments that will cure the alleged defects. Yeah, that's a judge telling you it's interesting. Yeah, that's you go to turn in your assignment late to your teacher and they're like, all right, I will accept it and then they glance out and they're like, you're gonna want to accept this late but I'm already seeing this and it's not looking good. Right, that is, that is exactly what that means, right? So that's why I spend a little bit of time on the merits. The child porn carries a ten year statute of limitations, and the child trafficking has since been amended, but at the time, Kerry for your special limitations on. Child porn, right?.

"So all of that July Io, the American rescue plan directs $1 billion to the enforcement for the expansion of independent processing capacity. So one of the things that is a concrete action when you are promulgating rule making is the money that Congress actually. So again, I know a $1 billion is not a lot by Washington standards. But that's real money that will really be spent in terms of putting into place systems that are designed to increase the amount of revenues that go to independent farmers and bring down costs to American consumers. So what are they going to use that $1 billion on? They're four specific things that the USDA then promulgated as a result of its fact finding and the 450 comments that it received in the notice and comment period. One, expand independent processing capacity. So to increase competition, create more options for producers and consumers by jump starting independent processing projects that will increase competition and enhance the resiliency of the food supply chain. This is the monopsony problem. That is. Define monopsony for those of us who didn't play that board game. So monopsony is when you have few buyers in a supply chain in an inner vertically and supply chain. So typically, monopoly is few sellers of goods and services and the idea is that they can set monopolistic prices, particularly where demands are relatively inelastic. When you have a chain and you have few buyers, they also can set artificially low prices. Oh, yeah, we could make this into a board game. Yeah. Okay, all the players are already, they occupy all the tiles, but then only one thing goes around and buy stuff, and so they can lowball everybody. Yeah, that's exactly right. And that's a situation that plagues farmers right now. We have farmers among our listeners. We watch them. And so if you are selling a particular crop and there is one regional purchaser they get to pretty much dictate what that price is. You can try and sell your corn door to door or whatever. But they're the only purchasers in volume. And so they artificially depress the price at which they buy it. So the first step is to increase independent processors in the food chain. So the new processing capacity will build momentum in a currently concentrated market. For example, 50 beef slaughter plants owned by just a handful of companies currently process nearly all of the cattle in the United States. USDA will provide gap financing grants totaling up to $375 million for independent food processing plant projects that fill a demonstrated need for a more diversified processing capacity. So think about that for a minute. What that's saying is I want to start up a meat processing plant. They will loan money with grants attached to that, so I don't have to pay back all some or all of it to let me start up that plant in an area that has a demonstrated need for a diversified number of sellers. And this is a super win win because ideally, you're talking about areas where the price to farmers has been artificially low. So let's make this up, right? If the price has been driven down to one penny per era of corn and you turn around and you're able effectively to sell that up the chain for a dollar, that's a, right now, all of that profit is being eaten up by four large companies that control that aspect of the supply chain, that's a great kind of environment for an entrepreneur to get involved in to be like, hey, I could offer to pay lots more per year of corn and still make a good profit and still cover the fact that this is a pretty massive capital investment. Oh, and I'm gonna get a loan of which I may not have to pay back all of it in order to get into that process. So that's that first component. It also has strengthening the financing systems, working with lenders, right? So not just directly making loans available, but working with lenders to reimburse so that they liberalize their standards, private blending institutions, liberalize their standards for getting money out to help bring in competition in areas that have limited buyers in a vertically integrated market. The USDA has deployed a $100 million in American rescue plan funds to make more than a $1 billion in guaranteed loans available immediately. Applications will be accepted. In fact, we can put the link in the show notes for you want to start a meat processing. So okay, all right, that is trying to stop the choke points in processing. Prong two, supporting workers and the independent processor industry. So this is building a pipeline of well trained workers.
The Difference Between Buddhism and Christianity
"Difference between Buddhism and Christianity, right? So Buddhism believes that the highest level of Buddhism you don't talk. I've been to the bed right into the monasteries and they have these incredible debates where they're looking at each other, and they will clap with their hands, at each other, and yet they're not actually speaking. In Christianity. The two creation stories, God created heavens the earth and the beginning was the word the word was God the word was with God, right? Is logos, which is the word for speech. God spoken to exist. We are the speaking beans. At the highest levels of existence and earthly existence, we are being at a reasoning, speaking and communicating. And the highest level of existence in Buddhism, you shut up. It's a big difference. You turn yourself over to what exactly, you know? Yeah. Right. But also you're not obviously, you're not winning people over. You're not communicating. You're not reasoning. It's very sheltered, it's very, it's like retreating. I think there's a place for that. I think resting is obviously important, but the highest level of Buddhist philosophy is that you then assent to the highest level of Nirvana, right? Right. Through that, where we believe the total opposite and that's how you're breaking the cycle and you believe Jesus came to us. We believe Nirvana, whatever heaven, which we believe is a real place, has a nonstop ticket where Jesus said here you go, I paid the whole price for you. You don't have to go sit down and shut up and go to some hill and clap at each other and wear an orange robe. No offense anyone that might do that that listen to our show, you might be a nice person, whatever. The point is that it's totally different. Here's a ticket, free admission, go free, as it says in Johnny 38, the truth will set you free.

"And the reason is that what makes me capable of doing, perhaps, is my consolation prize, which I awarded myself for being a loser of not becoming a Buddha. In 60 years of study in this life. This is my understanding of from the description that Buddha left of his experience. Before he attended Nirvana under the tree there, he remembered his own infinite previous lives. And second, he became aware of everybody else's infinite previous flies as his mind expanded with the empathy of identifying with everyone. He remembered he'd been all of them because beginningless. No first beginning. Universe has always got all different big bangs and big crunches. It's beginningless. So then he became aware of it was all near on it anyway. But the event horizon of that realization of the uncreated that made him see he had already been in Nirvana all that past time. He was already it was just all play of light on the screen of Nirvana. That's why he could remember. We don't remember because we don't want to remember more suffering. So by realizing that I realize when I do get Nirvana and because the future is also infinite and I'll eventually find out what real bliss is and I wanted and I'll get him. And at that time, I will experience that talking to Dan Harris. On the 10% happier was Nirvana already so retroactively I'll enjoy this moment. And with sympathy, how I failed to completely do it. Now, you know? And I'll keep working on it. So it's my consolation. Bob, I have to say that talking to you has cheered me up and I really appreciate it. Taking the time. Thank you very much. 12%.

"When you say it's all Nirvana anyway, what does that mean? Well, it's a way of referring to something that's inexpressible actually. There are what makes him so great and not a religious prophet or a founder. He was a bit of a prophet in a sense of predicting the future. He could do that. Supposedly, when you become fully enlightened, you are fully present in the future and the past. And you remember all your previous lives, which are infinite, and you see that infinite future. Very immediately. So you can kind of move around in time. Like we move around in space. Apparently. Well, the nirvana is what's called the uncreated. The 8 foot path is not the cause of Nirvana. It doesn't need a cause. It's just reality. And it's like dark matter and dark energy, actually. There's two things that are invisible to kinds of things. Things that are dark, like dark matter and dark energy, which are modern, scientists, physicists need to hold together their theories about the 3% that they can see. But they don't know what it is. But there's another thing they don't see. Something that's transparent. When you look out the window, you don't see the glass. Unless it's dirty. You're just look out, but they're glasses there. So what I mean by Nirvana anyway is Nirvana refers to the absolute nature of everything, but absolute in a sense can not relate to the relative. So therefore no one could achieve it. So it's criticizes any theory or ideology that absolute ties and it makes anything absolute. Be it God or nothing is orbit energy or power or whatever it is. So what that means is that the relative is the absolute. So the Nirvana, it's like the world of suffering like a projection on a wide screen that has no problems. It's just pure white. But the movie projected on it. It's just lightly on the surface of this thing, which is only an analogy for an inexpressible thing. So actually, none of it is really happening. In fact, therefore, when you discover that, and that's even a problem to explain how that could even happen because this is not 97% is a 100% transparency. It's called the clear light of emptiness or the clear light of freedom. And so instead of nothingness being the base of all the phenomena, a darkness, in other words, this transparency is the substance of all the interconnected things, which are all empty of any non relational element. But they are happening because they can relate. And they are able to relate because they're empty of the non relative. Therefore, their relation is the opposite. It's totally absolute. And so what that means then, when you know that, and again, I said, how you know it is complicated, but when you know that you realize that love is all you can do about your relations with things. In other words, there's no reason not to be 100% positive about everything. And you for effortlessly do that because you feel that it's all Nirvana. So you're holding in your mind. The two opposite things. You know, F. Scott Fitzgerald, he said the sign of a great mind is the ability to hold two opposite things in the mind at once. Without damaging either one and without exploding to mine. So it sort of in a light way. And not necessarily fusing them in some way, some simplistic way. But really keep them alive there. That's so marvelous. Because I always say enlightenment is the supreme tolerance of cognitive dissonance. What do you think? That everything is perfect and there's an enormous amount of suffering, both at the same time. It makes it a little less enormous, and it gives us the ability to help either ourselves or others overcome it, which we will definitely do. We're all we'll do it. There's a happy ending to the universe and the great part about it is not the end. I can imagine some people listening to you, you know, semi facetiously semi officially describing yourself as a miserable and only 3% happier and saying, well, this guy's been at it for a long time, meditating, he was a monk, he's been studying Buddhism and such a deep way for so long. Why should I even try meditating a couple minutes a day? Exactly. Exactly. This book is the first time I wrote it in a book. I would share it. It's giving lectures to people. Even academic lectures. I never forget I was giving a lecture distinguish lecture. And the person who introduced me, mentioned, it was not long before my retirement. So I was in my mid 70s and he mentioned that this sex was so distinguished, said Dartmouth college. It was so distinguished that often in the history of the lecture the giver of the lecture died afterwards it was their last leg. So first I had to ensure that when I took that I was not going to croak on the spot. And then I was sort of thinking the subject of the lecture was Buddha, scientist, and educator. And then I was telling them, why am I taking such a subject with you guys don't believe? You don't think he was a scientist? You think it's a religious Buddhist, you know? Although there was no Buddhism when Buddha was teaching. That didn't exist yet. The educator when he's all known as a founder of the world religion. So why am I doing this? I said, well, one. I don't want to convert you. To Buddhism. Because that would not be what I want you to do. And there are a lot of nasty Buddhists and miserable Buddhists, as well as miserable or whatever other things. And also my teacher, the Dalai Lama, nowadays, teacher, he's against convert anybody from anything to anything else. Except converting him to their own better self from within themselves. That's it. And he says, everyone should keep their grandmothers religion. He says, so now I agree. So I don't want to do that. Then second, I don't want to compete with Mary baker Eddie to make a Buddhist science institute and Buddhist science newsletter. Not because I wouldn't like to, but I don't think there's a time. So that's not the point. So why am I doing it? I said, oh, I said, no, I know..

"As you think you're so separate being and the universe is not you and in a way it is confronting her and you're up against it. Then you're going to lose this struggle. Temporarily, some people will like you. The circumstance will be okay. You'll be in Paradise, et cetera, et cetera. Later, it'll burn. Later the people who liked you will be mad at you, et cetera. So he just said, acknowledge that our normal delusional awareness that makes us think that we are the center of everything. And it all rotates around us. And when it doesn't suit us, that makes us upset. That is unworkable. And it will be frustrating. He didn't even say like Socrates did. The unexamined life is not worth living. He never said it. It'd be not worth living. He just said it'll be frustrating. It'll never work out quite. And then the cause is the wrong idea that we have. And that is that we are the center. And we are the one. We just think we are. And nobody else does. And so there's a fundamental Discord about life wage in that way. So that's the second noble truth. And that was his analysis of the problem. But then what he had to say to them was the real thing is freedom from that suffering Nirvana being blown away from your struggle about I'm more important than the universe, which you're not. And you don't destroy the universe, and you don't destroy yourself. You're just getting into a better relationship with it. You are part of it. Others are as important as you, and there was many more of them. And so if you take account, identify with more of them altruistically, it will be more happy. If you can help them be happy, it's kind of thing. So anyway, that third one is the reality that he discovered. The others are his analysis of how to deal and escape from the unreality. So then the fourth one is the path to the realization of the nirvana of freedom of bliss. He doesn't usually say bliss because people will be suspicious about bliss. They'll think it's something whatever because they both used to being miserable. And they feel they're being realistic when they're miserable. I also do. The fourth one is three educations. It's an 8 branches path, but it has three educations. Ethical education, mental education, and scientific, or wisdom education. Those are the three kinds. Before you have had a big realization, you get into a more harmonious way of relating to others. Because the ethical is what's kind and loving and altruistic. You have to get to where you're more balanced to be able to do the other ones. Then the science one, the wisdom one, it's not religion. It's not believing anything. It's actually disbelieving that what you habitually perceive is the real reality. Sort of like a modern scientist, I'm looking at a beautiful building at the men lost par. Here in the cascades, and I think the wall is real. It's Tibetan painting is real, the lamps are real, the windows, floors, ceilings, et cetera, et cetera. Nuclear physicists will tell me, it's just Adams. They're mostly empty, electrons, and nuclei, reality of this is freedom. And that a little hard to realize so the third education is the mind. And that's where the meditation comes in. Although it has to be built on the ethics and the analysis and the critical deconstruction of the delusional reality in order to be able to reach the real reality. The bliss reality. So if meditation by itself by the normal self centered person, ten years later, instead of 10% happier, they'll jump up, and they'll say, wow, I'm the greatest. I'm so great. Everyone should do what I want. And then when they don't, they freak out. So that's the thing. I say realistic because the highest realism is when you look through the situation and you find that the true reality and so that's where I picked the title wisdom is bliss. To counteract ignorance is bliss. Which we have as a saying because we're conditioned to think that reality is scary, dangerous, harmful, and therefore better not to know. And live in denial. So that's completely incorrect from Buddha's point of view. So it's a wisdom that's a place knowing what it is and experiencing it really to the full, as freedom. That's the key thing. Anyway, what do you think, dad? I was saying, I want the listeners to know that when I was walking over here to have this talk with you, I was thinking 10%. He is so lucky. Because I decided I weighed in at around 3%. But wait a minute, you just gave us this whole talk about the bliss of. I don't know, Nirvana and all this stuff. How are you only at 3%? Because I'm still too stuck in my conditioning. So in other words, I want the world to be the way it should be. And we have crazy people in the government. And we have crazy people all over the place. And we have nearly wrecking the entire planet. California is burning, and women are not really recognized as the jewels that they are. So that all gets me upset. And I'm determined to fix it. And I can't. On the other hand, I have no power. So that makes me unhappy. Now,.

"Is partially closure nude five whether of a child's conduct suggest sexual coyness or willingness to engage in sexual activity and six weather conduct is intended or designed to elicit a sexual response in the viewer. So those are factors that way. Because you don't want people going to prison for like taking pictures of their kids doing silly stuff in the bafta right as a parent of young kids this is. This is a weird thing to think about. You know because like there are times when you're just like all share this picture and You know. I think in this day and age. I'm not putting any pictures. My kids genitalia on the internet. Even though honestly when you have a baby or you have a tall like it's just they're all you're constantly changing diapers. They're constantly run around naked. It's not it's not a thing you know in in a way it is kind of depressing that because they're creeps in the world like it becomes a thing where you're like. Oh someone's going to but even stuff like if phoebe runs around without a shirt. She's four the same as a boy at for you know there's and yet because of the internet and crew crappy humanity. I gotta be like is this gonna am i in trouble for posting or something like and so it is a very real thing to think about and i think those factors actually sound pretty reasonable to me as a framework to try and interpret like okay. Was this something. Because if an actual pedophile or somebody who is trying to produce content for pedophile produced a similar photo but with certain intent behind it. Then it is a weird thing i would hope we had a way to prosecute so. I kind of see all ends of that. Yeah exactly and that's why. They came about thacker tests. Right that way because kids are like naked all the time like they're running around that way like you don't prosecute some poor mom who sharon like. Oh this is my baby and the bubble bath or whatever and throw her in prison the same as an absolute creed you know. Because they're not the same we need to not treat them the same. So yeah i'm not a parent by idea. Grew up a little brothers and stuff. And i do know like kids run around naked constantly. Like that's just like something. So everybody's i'm sure saying that headline which you know. He's doing about child porn and that is exactly right because i know that sometimes especially entertainment law. We'll see a headline again. Going back to the britney spears stuff and people will run with it and it's you know once you get into the documents you're like that's not what he's saying at all so i thought maybe it was a case of this like maybe you know the media kind of like turn it into some ridiculous thing and he didn't say any of that but you know it was to get clicks. Nobody's exactly what this lawsuit is about. He is saying that the people who he is suing nirvana. He's doing basically everybody that can be sued. He is suing courtney love as the executor occur. Obain estate he also named kurt cobain deceased as one of the parties which was into. I've never seen that. I have never seen that. I have always if i am. You know. I used to work at a firm. That did a lot of personal injury stuff and usually if there was somebody those dead it was always be estate of so i've never seen that. They sued him for good measure in cases. Chilling on the island of right. I mean it does strike me as maybe that is more of an a attention. Grabby thing to do like if that's not the norm. It feels a little bit like you're you're you're literally suing a dead body because that's the most famous person involved here. Yeah and they're also even suing. The old drummer of nirvana was not even on that album. That was when dave grohl was actually right. Okay yeah so this first album. They're suing everybody. They're suing the record label distributor air. Saying which i mean is a common approach right at almost law. I was taught sue as many people as you can for as much money as you can. If you're playing right it's their jobs and get knocked out of a lawsuit. But i did think that was a little bit weird and some interesting stuff. Like if you're still in the old drummer i mean. Where the hell do you draw the line. I mean that there's gotta be some point where you're like okay you can't i didn't your professors like i didn't mean literally everybody like he just like the guy who set up the audio equipment in the studio surprise. It's like that hooked up. The mike's did and did you say sorry. Did you say they sued the label. The record labels actually kind of makes sense like if you're going to do this lawsuit su who might have signed off on it. Yes and also the tog refer and i'm sure so we'll get we'll get into that. So basically here's what the lawsuit alleges sometime in. Nineteen ninety dc records hired robert fisher to design album cover work and that's absolutely true. So you know. He's talking with the band about what they want. So kurt cobain said that he wanted images disaccord lawsuit wanted images of nude babies for production. Never mind cover and the complaint makes it appear as if they wanted to do that for basically shock value and forgive these bad reasons but when you look into this claim even a little bit. I looked into old. I found several old articles such as rolling stone. Cnn from years ago about how did this never mind out and kind of come together because of course there's a success so they did a lot of interviews so those are plentifully available for anybody who also fact checked complaint even slightly so evidently kurt cobain was watching some waterbirds one day..

Because i'm curious about contextualising what they're talking about was person born from nineteen twenty to nineteen ninety or eighteen. Whatever you know Because i'm kind of curious like at the time another thing that interests me is. I look at bibliographies and then like do the math to figure out how old they were when they're writing certain things because i'm thinking like was a person's point of view that is thirty five. That's writing this book on. Whatever i was this person seven day when they're writing this and what what point in history was taking place so it's just kind of this deeper conceptualization of perspective to understand. I don't more more where they're coming from. Just out of my own curiosity yeah from music to it's very apparent in music when you have your hormones raging and you're young twenty something as opposed to in your fifties like you're not going to be as as sexy or something in your in your playing. It's not gonna be necessarily worse for less interesting but it's certainly different. Yeah it's a triple a lot of times. You never can tell us like you especially like you know written stuff because it's a lot more kind of effervescent than giving away exactly where it's from like you hear a song from the late eighties and it's pretty obvious To me because of my. Because i was born in the eighties but anyway you hear nirvana you know. That's the sound of the nineties but with language. It's like you have to have some weird phrases. You know four score always second. Yeah was this from but it's a trip. Is that like a lot of times. i. I'll be reading something and i'll think this person was narrowed to say they seem. They must have been like in their fifties sixties or something and then they were like forty. And wow i can't believe this person was this intensely. Brilliant to that already writing something at that age it's amazing in conversely there'll be other things right anticipate the person be quite young at times that they're quite older. It's it's fascinating to me. Yeah no you never. You never know what place in the journey..

'cause you know it's it's it's like your images are so like from that perspective and like yeah. I'm not cool with not paying him. More given what we know over the last forty years equidistant. And yeah exactly. It's yeah it is it's like I think you know it's totally reasonable for him to ask to be paid more and no credit. Yeah that's where like the legal comes in and said well. This agreement has been signed so rights like the claim that they're making that it is in a long history of there are some severely fucked up classic rock albums that do use child pornography and like should be banned and i think have been banned a lot of cases but this just feels like track trying to graft onto that like the naked baby feels feels weird. Yeah more than anything. I'm like y'all if if this young man or whatever she's thirty now fred this dude. This feels like he's owed more than yes. Have that conversation and david role. For how like you know how you know hick. Crunchy and hippy. Dippy in all lovey-dovey. You seem to be like yeah. I feel slightly differently about so vampire weekend. Had a similar thing. They had pretty iconic album cover for contra those like this young woman looking very eighties and it was apparently a like they. They bought it off the photographer who claimed he had taken a picture. Like of a model at like a behind the scenes like it was just very obscure picture but the photographer was like Scam artist and they. She sued the band for two million dollars. They settled with her and then like countersued. The photographer essentially and i think they're going to win that because the photographer was like lying and to the point that like his lawyer fired him and now he's representing himself. Oh oh that's how you know you're in good shape. Yeah but that. I also have a difficulty was like any like nirvana would be the last band that i'd be like. Oh well they're rich. 'cause like after that kanobi everybody's stopped making money in the music industry. I feel like may maybe not immediately after that but for like they're of that generation of bands. Those still getting like kind of wealthy. Stay vampire has two million dollars lying around. They might that. i'm sure they license their shit enough. I remember seeing a bunch. That's that the difference right because you have the musicians who make their shit now are the ones who get their stuff. Put in tv in film and commercials or you arenas right. That's kind of like the or you do the hyper indie model where you can cut out the labels. You're not caught up. Caught up his three sixty deal and you actually do it.

Let's i'll make a lawsuit out of this and then make use fucking settled with me.

That's that's creepy with my wise at the first thing that you go to. I feel like that's not the angle that maybe he should've taken because read that again.

We're going to go get we're going to go after nirvana now. 'cause i'm going to say he was a sex worker kind. Yeah especially because that album was so like made them illogically immorally wealthy to a degree that i think they all admitted at the time whereas like this. Is this sort of fame. This sort of wealth is absurd and like shouldn't exist. But i'm sure and also less likely to admit that now right and the album cover itself is like you know a commentary on capitalism and being like heared little baby. Here's a get get hooked on the dollar ran rather than something like to like what they're saying is like oh my god they were trying to get people to be the most controversial thing i felt like i don't know again. I was only But boy at the time. So i wasn't in touch with all of the news media commentary around this but i've thought a boy named goo goo goo dolls cover got more heat than this shit did when they're like it's got it's this.

Navalny defiant as Russian court rejects his bid for freedom
"Ruled against freeing the lead opposition figure Alexei Navalny, rejecting his appeal against a 30 day detention imposed when he returned from Germany. Mr. Navalny's supporters have been calling for further protests this Sunday. Several Rainsford is in Moscow. The judge took just a few minutes to decide Aleksei Nirvana's fades, ruling that the opposition politician will remain behind bars. Mr. Navalny appeared in court via video link and spoke passionately denouncing his treatment, including a previous court hearing held in a police station as illegal, he said it was all meant to scare him and shut him up. You have the power for now, who declared, But that won't be eternal. The ruling itself was no surprise since Saturday's mass protests across Russia, calling for his release. Some key allies of Mr Navalny have been detained and many more have had their homes and offices searched by police.
Poisoned Russian Opposition Leader Alexey Navalny Says He Will Return To Russia Despite Jail Threats
"We begin today in Russia, where the opposition leader Alexei Navalny is facing a possible lengthy prison sentence a day after his arrest stand detention upon returning from Germany. He was being treated there for a novel Choc nerve agent attack in Russia, which Mr Navalny with a good deal of evidence has blamed on the Russian state. Mr Navalny was wished away from the airport where the plane landed last night, not the airport, where it was scheduled to land and where a large crowd of his supporters have gathered. Police station A court convened there today has agreed to a police request to extend his detention prior to a trial, which might rule he served a suspended prison sentence. 3.5 years handed down in 2017. His arrest has been widely condemned by Western governments but defended by Russia. Speaking ahead of a hearing on the hearing at the police station. In a clip posted on social media, Mr Navalny accused President Putin of showing complete contempt for the law by detaining him. Which uses said anything consumers to the press with Violet. See, I don't understand why the hearing is being held at a police station. Why wasn't anyone informed? Why were there No. Summers are seeing a lot of mockery of justice. But the old man in the bunker is probably so afraid that they've obviously tourney up and bend the criminal procedure code. This is impossible. What's going on? Here is lawlessness off the highest grade the words off election Avandia and a short while ago I spoke to Vitaly Millen off from Mr Putin's United Russia party who's been a member of the Russian parliament since 2016. Why is the Russian government seem so nervous about election of Army? I suppose that it's more like impression created by Nirvana himself. Of course, I assumed that Mr Navalny represents himself as the main leader of the Russian off positions, which is not true, because a number of his supporters is not the tremendous it's quite weak. Of course, he's not dangerous for the Russian state. Told because he wore he was able to participate in different type of elections, even in the mayor elections in Moscow, So I think that he is not someone that board us Russian authorities. One of the same time the Russian authorities describe Mr Navalny as in a relevant blogger, and then you whisk him off a plane which didn't land where it was meant to. You take him off to a police station. On So the trial as finished a couple of years ago. It's for reserve. Remember, it was assumed that he should stay in a special conditions. He cannot believe country for a long time. And he should visit occasionally. Special officer like everywhere in the world. He decided not to do this. Sorry. Hang on a minute, Mr Milner if he didn't decide not to observe his parole conditions, he was poisoned. With a deadly nerve agent. He then had to be flown out of the country where he's been suffering from a coma and trying to recover from that poisoning. This was not a choice on his part, as far as I remember Russian side God, no witness from the West. So with the same way we can tell that you've been captured by Spiderman, no evidence and no results. No tests from the laboratories in the present to Russian state. Saying that he had been poisoned by this Western world known poison nor the chuck. So he stayed as a guest off. I'm gonna model for quite a long period of time, and he had been recovered. You know, in a week after he's being transported from Russia recovered, recovered from what? Because you you say he wasn't but wasn't poisoned off course. I know a lot of diseases and lots of education's want personal individual needs to be recovered, he declared himself. Is an individual being poisoned, Injured assassinated? I I don't know what and he felt himself quite good already within a few days, so why he ignored his abilities to show up in the police office? I don't know. So that's been universal neg, universal condemnation of his arrest Western countries, the European Union, the United States, they are clearly all these countries extremely troubled. What has happened to Mr Navalny onboard. Usha doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks. That is. That's right, isn't it? Western countries? They do not care about the position of Russian side concerning those who have bean captured, increasing or held in prison in the United States, For example, European Union imprisoned lots of people from parts of Spain that called themselves Catalans know and you've got even Russian people in America being I should like, make their boot already for more than 10 years in prison without any real evidence of his being guilty, So it's first. I remember. We do not push American or British officials to change their mind because we respect sovereignity of different countries.

Nothing helping you for pointing to our points and then authenticating guests azure ad or see so. Obviously we don't want people to report their old codes as long as it's all. Idc compliance than a simple -cational pointing to new tenants setting up operated inside is radio b. c. and off you go but however if your code is ten years old obviously you're not compliant so there are that's somebody benefits in my migrating your code especially if you're dot net today since we've simplified all the boilerplate codes and we hit away the complexities but we want you to come you are we have a very nice slide usually with nirvana singing cameras you are and that's the slide because we don't want you to use our libraries don't want you to use our guidelines if you already have a connect complain libraries or if you want to use a community in one then you can integrate with no problem

"The struggle between art and money for the soul of rock adam. Welcome to the show. Thanks for having me cool. And so what inspired you to write this book. Well i think a couple of different things first off I think it had to do with Growing up in an era and coming of agent air of music and coming to realize as i got older that that At era was being misremembered culturally and that they were kind of key things had been left out of the dominant cultural narrative That was That were important to that. Era musically culturally and so forth so it came out of conversations with a lot of my friends in the music industry and other friends and bands and all that type of stuff and music fans who would come of age and you know generation x. and There just wasn't much written about the alternative music era and There had been other countless books. Written about you know the Sixties music and seventies music. There is a really good book called our band could be your life About the indie scene in the nineteen eighties. That really kinda got out The alternative music era. So i wanted to you know. Help shed some light on that cool. And i i want to say i really enjoyed the book and found it a thought provoking and definitely some points of analysis clarified things. That hadn't occurred to me and the fundamental point the day alternative music died. That's sort of a little bit of a troll entitle as well. I think it i think it means. I think some people would think that that would mean that you know when nirvana the music. When when kirk obeying died and and that's refers to day alternative music dies mature cobain died and people would maybe take that the common reading of that would be you know there was a loss of nirvana ended that arab. But it really has to do with the way that nirvana's the myth and legacy was used to kind of corporate alternative music..

A Really Tall Tower: Babel
"Today we're looking at genesis chapter eleven and this is how it reads. I'm just if i could just re-genesis eleven versus one through nine. It's short enough. Yeah i think that'd be great yeah. Jt why don't you. Why don't you read it these bible in front of you. Boom okay genesis. Eleven one thousand nine do it okay. Moses writes under the holy spirit now the whole earth had one language and the same words and as people migrated from the east they found a plain in the land of shinar settled there and they said to one another come let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly and they had brick for stone and vitamin for mortar. Then they said come. Let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens and let's make a name for ourselves lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth and the lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of man had built and the lord said behold they are one people and they have all one language and this is only the beginning of what they will do and nothing they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come let us go down. And there in confused their language so that they may not understand one another speech so the lord dispersed them from there over the face of the earth and they left off the building of the city. Therefore it's name was called babble because the lord confused the language of the earth and the lord dispersed them over all the face of the earth fascinating. What an interesting story. Now lewis opened up with this. Is this like the post-flood nirvana period like this. The post-flood utopia period because when it opens up. I guess we read the story of the tower of babel kind of back to front meaning. We kind of know where it's going but if you just read the first couple of lines of this now the whole earth had one language in the same words there they've migrated. They've settled there. They said to one another come. Let us build a city Like let let's build something. Okay if i could just pause in my mind if you just paused right there it feels like oh wow. They're doing what god told them to do after the flood there. It's one people They're living together and they're building. Isn't this a part of the cultural mandate cultivate and subdued there building a civilization. So like it seems for a moment like everything is going. According to plan right except that the language is telling us and they never yeah. Language come let us is is highly significant elsewhere. You'll see it In the book of exodus when Pharaoh says come. Let us build store cities and he. It utilizes the israelites slave labor to do so And so what we see in this building project and it's pretty clear that their motive for building is not to bring honor and glory to god. It is to ascend to the heavens and be like god that is to Make much of themselves. Not only that but cities are places that actually keep people in one spot and so part of what is confusing about the way. The narrative is written us. 'cause we're we're not necessarily paying attention to the typical rhythms. That's the original audience would have is that because we just had the of nations We're thinking oh okay. Everybody's all spread out and speaking different languages but the table of nations. This is not a chronological retelling. The table of nations is talking about how things look after the story of babble so it's important to see that. The fruitfulness medication and spreading out that is basically as we'll see Forced upon the human race at that. Point is that's recorded at the table of nations actually result of the story that we're reading. Yeah that i think that makes a lot of sense. I think one of the things that i i'm asking this question and i'm glad you brought that language because that's where i was hoping we would go with but i do feel like sometimes when i heard the story of the tower of babel tot and i don't know if this was just like the circles i in but i heard about it as oh they're doing something that the the the idea of city building Idea of structure building was anti-theft. What they should have been doing which living off the land and the garden. And i heard this is kind of like anti city hall cried for the anti progress that's the coal and eaten is the cultivate subdue and is the transform the earth into like this garden city so the act of building the act of development the active civic society. The active structure building isn't bad. It's not immoral but the reason they want to do it is

"All right what is going on my friend. It has been a while. I've been traveling. And i've been tired for lack of a better excuse but we're back and this is going to be interesting episode because i'm going to share with you. What podcast nirvana looks like. And feels like and sounds like and to kind of you're wondering what the hell's podcast vonda and The reason why i created this term essentially is because a lot of people jump in the podcast and they have goals and they have these things they want to accomplish but they're not really moving towards anything concrete or specific like there's no journey or pathway so for our for our clients for people who listen to us who consume our content. We wanted to make a A better road map of like. Hey we're removing too. Because for me in my eyes podcast should create four specific things. Maybe even more four specific things. I'm going to talk about here today. And but in this. You're going to know where you're gonna wanna move to and your podcast. What are the things you're trying to accomplish and what does An ideal situation look like for you. So i you know i i think for me. I look back to my bodybuilding days. Look back to my fitness. The best results. I was able to create as a competitor. Were when i had a very stupid clear idea of where i was moving like what i was doing this for. What did success look like and feel like what it tastes like the times. Like bland food but you know that was when i was able to create the best results and i think the same thing applies in business. Same thing applies in podcasting where you can create a very clear vision. I podcast varna of where you're moving to. It's going to be much easier to accomplish that. So first of all. I've got to give credit where credit is due If you guys know. Sam sam up and created. He created an ad. I think i forget where i saw an ad but it was. It was basically called consulting nirvana which is like this is where you wanna move to consultant and likewise thanks for. Thanks simone's for this idea You know we created podcasts or vodka. Which is where you want to move to in your podcast. So let's just jump into it and Again these are n results skies our end end goal. So this is where you want to be in. You know six twelve eighteen months when you launched your show so the first thing i one i'm gonna try and get. His tangible is possible with these. But let it be known that like your idea of Success can look different from that. Only okay but i'm gonna share with you. What i would my podcast. Romana looks like number one. The first thing it gives you first podcast should give you is essentially Expert authority positioning in. That is meaning. You are the top dog in the space. If there's ten podcast talking about fitness coaching specifically for guys who want to build muscle you want to be the best. You won't have the most download you wanna have the the most reviews. Don't have the best audience the most engaged audience like that's expert authority positioning and and this takes time to build up. We wrong but there's a lot of things you can do in the launching of your podcast..
Aleksei Navalny Out of a Coma and Responsive, German Doctors Say
"Poisoned Russian opposition leader Alexey Navales condition has improved allowing doctors to take him out of an induced coma. The German hospital treating him said, Monday Navan any of high profile critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin was flown to Germany last month after falling ill on August twentieth on a domestic flight in Russia. German chemical weapons experts say tests show the forty, four year old was poisoned with the Soviet era nerve agent prompting the German government last week to demand that Russia investigate the case. The patient has been removed from his medically induced coma and is being weaned off mechanical ventilation. Sherry t hospital said in a statement. He is responding to verbal stimuli. It remains to early to gauge the potential long-term effects off his severe poisoning. It added that the decision to publicly released details of his condition was made in consultation with Navales wife. Nirvana had been in an induced coma and the Berlin hospital since he was flown to Germany on August twenty seconds for treatment news of his gradual recovery came as German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office indicated that she might be willing to rethink the fate of a controversial German Russian gas pipeline project a sign of Berlin growing frustration over Moscow's stonewalling about the case. German authorities said last week that tends showed proof without doubt that Nevada any was poisoned with a chemical nerve agent from the Nova Chalk group British authorities identified the Soviet Era Nova Chuck as the poison used on former Russian spy Sergei script.

All knee and accused Germany failing to provide evidence about the poisoning that it requested in late. August. German. Foreign Minister Heiko Moss said Sunday that the Russian reaction could determine whether Germany changes its long-standing backing for the Nord Stream two pipeline which brings Russian gas to Germany under the Baltic Sea bypassing Ukraine. The chancellor also believes that it's wrong to rule anything out MERCKEL spokesman Stephane. Siebert told reporters Monday after being asked about mosses comments. Previously Merckel had insisted on decoupling the of all case from the pipeline project which the US strongly opposes in August three US Republican senators threatened sanctions against the operator of a Baltic. Seaport located in Merkel's parliamentary constituency for its role as a staging post for ships involved in building Nordstrom to Siebert caution that it was premature to expect Moscow response to the matter within a few days. But made it clear that Berlin wants answers soon? I can't express a clear time-limited station except that we are certainly not talking about months or the end of the year he said.

Heaven and Hell
"The Buddhist said. The Double Prada. I won twenty six. Some enter the womb. Evildoers go to hell the good good heaven. Those free from worldly desires attained, Nirvana? Now. It's not hard to understand the attaining. Nirvana. But what's the stuff about going to hell and going to heaven? That doesn't seem very Buddhist. And yet we find it in the Buddhist scriptures. This is because I think that. The. Proclamation of Buddhism within the West has been sterilized of anything smacking of religion. So that Buddhism doesn't seem religious. But Buddhism is a religion. Is a religion that tells you how to attain the best destination the best life. So it tells you how to live life now. So that, you have peace of mind. It tells you how to attain Heaven after You die and it tells you how to get out of the cycle of rebirth, which is called some Sarah in Buddhism through attaining Nirvana. So. Tells you these things. But we really here mainly in the West about the meditation and about finding peace and things of this nature. But this isn't the complete story of Buddhism see you get a skewed view of Buddhism. So, lately, I've been writing for PATHOS PATHOS DOT COM. And Have My. I. Have a column there called the Buddhist said. And every week I do two articles where I explore the Buddhist teachings from the Pali Canon the earliest scriptures of Buddhism. And one of the things that. I'm trying to help people. Understand. Is that Buddhism is a full religion. It's not just find inner peace. It's about avoiding hell it's about attaining heaven and ultimately attaining Nirvana. So. One of the things I explained in my articles is the difference between the conditioned reality and the unconditional reality. So we live in a conditioned reality. And that conditioned reality has five basic destinations. You have the hell realms you have the ghost realm, you have the animal realm, the human realm, and the heavenly. Realm. And those are the five destinations that you can go to in this conditioned reality. Now. If you attain Nirvana which is complete liberation, then you leave this conditioned realm and go into. What can only be said to be the UN conditioned. You can't call it. A realm realm is conditioned. So I, call it an unconditional reality but that is still saying maybe too much about it. We don't know. We only know what the on conditioned is it's unconditional born on made on created on fabricated. And it's with that understanding then you begin to look at the Buddhist scriptures used. Yes Buddha tells how to get out of the cycle of rebirth. But he also tells you well, you're here. And if you don't attain Nirvana, the best thing to do is to practice the Dharma. And the Dharma has three basic printings if you will you have the ethical training. The. Mindfulness Meditation Training and the wisdom. Training this is the insight into the true nature of reality. So the ethical will give you a good rebirth. What you want is you want to be reborn as a human because the divine places, the heavenly places to pleasurable for you to meditate and the hell places to painful and of course, by Hell I mean they're temporary. So they're more like purgatory 's all these destinations are temporary. Nothing is permanent in the conditioned room. The only thing permanent is the uncommissioned. So when she realized that what you do here, effects where you're going after your life. Then the Buddha says ethical standards is what you do to make sure you have a good rebirth. That seems odd to many people who think of Buddhism has just a meditation practice. But this is what the Buddha taught. He taught a way of escape from the conditioned reality, but he also taught within this conditioned reality how to get the best rebirth so that you can practice so that you can attain Nirvana.
