Ryan Cabrera and WWE Star Alexa Bliss Are Engaged
"I think that social media is a reality in this world In the world that we live in in the world of sports entertainment. And i think that we have to learn how to live with it and i think we can actually use it as a tool for example recording this on sunday and today yesterday at the time this podcast comes out. It was everywhere. Alexa bliss announces that she's engaged A lot of alexa bliss fans are so happy for her lot of alexa. Bliss fans are very sad. Because i guess they thought that alexa bliss was going to marry them until she got engaged. It was so you're saying there's a chance. I saw on the not sam wrestling discord room. Where all are not. Sam shells that are signed up to patriot. Dot com slash. Sam wrestling. That we all get to chat There were a couple of them. That were upset. That alexa was engaged because they thought that that was going to be them. Unfortunately it's not but don't worry you still got the patriot community. You still got us. Not sam shells that are there for you. it's not. it's not all bad news but it was everywhere. She posted this video of of ryan. Cabrera popstar cabrera who she's been very publicly dating Proposing tour beautiful thing. You love is a wonderful thing and seeing join in holy matrimony and become even happier is wonderful. It's one of the happiest things if you are with the right person. The day the night the evening the afternoon that you get engaged one of the happiest times ever just such an expression of joy. It's beautiful. I love it but everybody's talking about it. I mean alexa. Bliss is a huge star. You know you've got. Wwe tweeting about it. And i probably should be. It's it's a little bit absurd to ignore it. You know not only is one of the biggest stars really realistically alexa. Bliss is one of the biggest stars in. wwe male or female. She's one of the most famous people in. Wwe so you know. And this is big. Wwe is big time. Now you got sasha banks over here on the mandalorian which you see. Sasha banks one of the big another one of the biggest stars in wwe and probably the biggest tv show. that's on the air right now. You see that happening which weird. The wwe isn't making a bigger deal out of that. Like if i were. Www shouting it from the rooftops. But you've got that going on at the same time you got to cherry public engagement. You know i mean. I feel like we should let's angle for a reality show. Let's get on the phone. I was watching total balas over the weekend. And i was like you know what i miss. When they would go to wrestlemainia. I was just sitting there waiting for them to go to wrestling. Like oh wait. There is no more wrestling. And that's when. I realized that i was watching total bells for the wrestling parts. They still got daniel bryan on the show. Obviously no more john cena. They're not going to wrestling shows anymore. So it's like oh. I like the balanced. But i'm still you know living in brima to seven but they're not gonna wrestling shows anymore so yes so let's get alexa. Bliss rang cabrera. Let's get blissfully something or other. You know you got bliss already in there you you got it. But here's what. I think needs to happen now that we've acknowledged. Wwe is acknowledged it's all over wwe social media platforms. I think that you gotta lean into it. And i think that you should use it. I think that this can be a lot of fun. Especially because ryan cabrera is also a public person. Here's the way. I think this needs to go. You had this segment on raw last week. Where nikki cross is talking to alexa. And there's this acknowledgement that they used to be friends. Which i think is great. We're not pretending that the election nikki partnership never happened is a big part of. Wwe at the time you know. We're still acknowledging it and alexis doing that. Weird phony friendly like almost like i'm in a trance. Peewee herman thing and nikki cross tells her alexa you gotta pick mere the fiend and alexa. As if it doesn't bother it all goes. Oh okay. I pick him. And walks away and nikki crosses befuddled by the whole thing befuddled. I love this. I think we need to keep this going. You know i look. This is the type of stuff. I want for alexa bliss and the this is why i say. Keep the fiend away from the universal championship. Keep the fiend away from the wwe championship because these are the types of stories. You can tell you know. I think that we should go back and look at who are friends. Were in annex t the start telling those stories and have somebody come out. Go like lexi. What are you doing things. You're you're not the same person what what's happening. I pick him and you know over. The course of a couple of weeks have her abandoning oliver. All friends and then finally ryan cabrera comes out on raw and it's like real life now it's like is this alexa. Bliss is this. What's her name lexi kaufman in real life. I don't know. I only know people by their wrestling names. But is this the real alexa. Bliss from real life. is the character alexa bliss now. We're mixing everything up. Which is what we should all be doing. That's the way wrestling is at. Its best mix everything up. And you've ryan cabrera out on raw and he's like alexa. I love you and she's like i love you. Do you know like yeah. Of course it you love me. I love you. We're we're doing great and he's like well. You're not the same person i thought. When we got engaged it would shake you out of this transfer inches. I'm not in a trance. I'm just seeing things for what they are for. The first time ryan cabrera goes lexi. I need you need you to pick you. Pick me or the fiend. She's kind of taken aback. She's like i didn't realize he felt that way. Ryan that's how i feel and she's like well net case i pick him. He's like what and then you hear bumble bumble bumble and the lights go out. Eat whatever those sounds are and tom phillips going. Oh no not here that's alexa. Bliss fiance pop sensation ryan cabrera and the red lights come on and the fiend is behind ryan cabrera and ryan cabrera's looking around and he's looking at alexa bliss. I what are you doing here. Like this is our real life and then he realized he gets his goosebumps. You realize the fiend is right behind him so he turns around and the phoenix cox's head and sticks his tongue out of his mask grabs ryan cabrera vice skull dips him over gives him a kiss on the forehead and he sister abigail ryan cabrera. Alexa bliss is real life. Fiance get sister abigail an alexa bliss just standing over him smiling. I love it man. I mean i i think that why not why not. I feel like it would be good for everybody involved. Like let's let's blur the lines here guys. Let's not pretend there's two separate entities as it's happening eventually we can tell the story of how like. Oh this is so wild in my personal and blah blah blah but while it's happening muster blending these lines with blurred altogether be like. That's a real fiancee right. Yup like the best is when you're trying to explain to a non wrestling fan. What storyline and what's not storyline. And they get confused because you're a little bit confused because you're not one hundred percent sure where the lines are and who's getting worked by what maybe. wwe tweeting about this was part of the storyline. All along are they even really engaged. I don't even know anymore. I don't know anything anymore. I guess i'm just going to sit here and watch monday night. Ron finds out. Find out what happens next. Because that's the way we should be watching anyway. Just let it play out and see what happens. I would love that if that happened. I would love it if that happened. Socket in our discord room. Says i love that. Sam has cabrera taking bumps like the fiend doesn't use the middle claw. He hit the mandible claw. After maybe alexa bliss puts the mandible claw him or something like that but is taking sister abigail. I mean we are laying out ryan cabrera. 'cause i want e. news. I want entertainment tonight. I want whatever extra whatever. Entertainment shows are left on television. I want people magazine. People dot com. I want everybody posting videos of being like popstar ryan cabrera. Remember him. Well i remember. I remember will now. He's getting laid out by the fiend on monday night raw. Because here's what happens. If you have a pop star that you grew up idolizing and he's getting laid out. Here's the way that works. You get the people who don't watch wrestling to not only get a glimpse of monday night raw but they get a glimpse of the theme. The is one the most unique properties the wwe has. The fiend is the type of visual. That went a non wrestling fan watches. They go what the hell is that. I'm going to have to tune in and see what that's all about. That's one of the strengths of the fiend. And if you got footage of ryan cabrera eating a sister. Abigail and his real life fiance alexa. Bliss is looking on happily in that weird fien state. You got money bro. you got money. I hope they're already thinking in that direction. If not. i'm in text. Bruce richard because somebody has to tell them get ryan cabrera on that show and lay that out. I think it'd be great. I think it'd be great. Congratulations to the two of them. But i have to believe that ryan cabrera. Whatever time of his life. I know i would if my fiance was a wrestler and she was like hey would you mind coming to raw and having the fiend. Give you sister abigail. I'd be like number one. That's awesome number two. After the show me. I get a picture of him in full gimmick. I really wish i could do that. I really wish i mean. I wish. I wish that. I could have one of the shows that i was at the fiend was at too. I wish i could just go like hey bro. Can we take a picture with you. Still in your gimmick and not. Be a weirdo. That doesn't deserve to be backstage. Because man do. I want that picture a really really. Do

C.I.A. Operatives in the Early Years of the Cold War
"Scott Anderson joins us now from the catskills. He is a contributing writer for the New York, Times magazine, and the author of many books. His latest is called the quiet Americans four CIA spies. Of the Cold War tragedy in three acts, Scott Welcome back to the podcast. Thanks much nice to be here. So you are allowed on the podcast to talk about your previous book Lawrence in Arabia which came out in twenty thirteen hand, which of course feels like now centuries ago which makes it clear to our listeners are longtime listeners that this is not your first. Book. Involving spies I'm curious what what's the draw for you but I think Speiser inherently fascinating in not just to an awful lot of people and of thought about what is I think it's the the allure of having a secret life. I think that I think that for an awful lot of people this idea that you have a whole separate identity is really fascinating New People. What I was drawn to in both the Lawrence and with in the quite America's the foresee a officers I follow is that in both cases, this was at a time when individuals out in the field had a tremendous freedom of action. So it wasn't. People sitting behind desks following policy that they're actually out in the field doing crazy stuff. You also have a personal connection to the story right in terms of what your father did for living you talk a little bit about that. Sure. My father was agricultural adviser for the Agency for International Development, which was a branch of the State Department. I grew up in. East. Asia in in Korea and Taiwan as Indonesia. and. So this was the nineteen fifties, nineteen sixties when I came along American government workers abroad often in those sorts of countries often were two hats whatever their official job was my father's job as agriculture adviser but it was also part of this great anti Communist crusade was happening around the world. So the upfront hearts and minds, soft power aspect of my father's work was working on agrarian reform in line with countries like these countries were were the land was was had been controlled infra centuries by all darkies. But the the more hard power in the darker side of what my father was doing was was setting up rural vigilante squads, home guard militias to watch over the local populace and to make sure that they weren't being swayed by the communist in certainly in countries like Taiwan or South Korea. If you were exposed or accused of being a leftist, your life was not going to go. Well, you know I'm now getting a sense of why one of the four characters in your previous book was an agronomist perhaps. That's right. Yeah it's well It's it's an interesting thing because. It just for national development was often used by the CIA as a cover because. Are Out, in the field, they're not, they're not saying, I'm destined to capitol there often out among the local population and probably have a better sense of what's happening. Outside what you one thing I'll say I've noticed over time in different countries. I've been almost invariably the ex Patriot community that knows best what's happening in the country are tend to be the people are out in the field in often the Middle East is the oil guys. They have a sense much more than than people sitting around in the capital. Let's start with frank wizner. The first person you mentioned, and this is not the the first book to be written at least in part about wisner who was he and what made him. So central to the story wizards amazing Turkey was a corporate lawyer who was working at a Wall Street firm when even before World War Two broke out and he quit his law firm to join the navy, he ended up being an operative for the office to teacher services, which is the the wartime intelligence agency of the of the army that they owe asset kind of the precursor to the CIA. That's right. That's right and he ends up being A. Kind of the first American to to to witness. The Soviet takeover of country in Eastern Europe, and this was in Romanian to summer of nineteen forty. Four So full year before the war ended and a wizard was on the ground as a as an oasis operative and just watch the strong arm tactics did really a matter of weeks led the Soviets to take control the country he and he was sending cables back to Washington telling telling them what are so good allies doing he sees the say he has the same experience in eastern Germany at the end of. The war in watching the way the Soviets for taking over, he goes back to his law from for couple of years for the complete unhappy, and then when the CIA starts up in nineteen forty seven, they have this idea that they wanna start a covert operations branch of of the CIA called the Office of Policy Coordination and frank listeners chosen to head that the name was deliberately chosen to be really boring. That's right and in fact, the name itself, the Office of policy coordination was was so top secret that even you can't even say the name out loud for twenty five years. So in that role wizner e created, what what he called the mighty world, which was this vast covert operations umbrella of a operating throughout the world and everything from hard power aspects of it like dropping dropping partisans behind the iron curtain to everything to cultural stuff voice. Of America. Radio Free Europe that was all came out of the Office of Policy Coordination.

Talked about the individual members should get more accolades especially a Buck Dharma that guys out of this world with his Solo. Refined sophisticated.

"patriot community" Discussed on Secular Buddhism
"In the last podcast episode I shared a Cohen. That's goes like this own Mahn said, I do not ask you about fifteen days ago. But what about fifteen days hence come say a word about this since none of the monks answered he answered for them every day is a good day. The everyday is a good day co on is a Cohen that I've enjoyed. In fact I have it written in Japanese on a poster board on my wall every day is a good day and this has been A. a way of thinking concept. If we want to call it that that I like to keep the forefront of my mind when I'm experiencing what I would consider to be a good day. Maybe a bad day for someone else or would consider to be a bad day for me. Certainly a good day for someone else and the idea that every day is a good day because it's always based on perspective and place some time has been helpful for me to I think have a more skillful view of what good means and and the idea of what a day is. So I wanted to share some of the thoughts that came from the Patriot community do Shan says I can't escape thinking that hope is at the center of this Cohen as well as the irrelevance of the past and the future. However, I don't commonly see hope as a big part of Buddhism in general hope seems judgmental and perhaps leads to dissatisfaction about the way things are. I want to share a couple thoughts about this in in terms of the notion of hope in in Buddhism I like to remind people that the Buddhist view is always pertaining to the present moment. So when we approach concepts like hope like hopelessness specifically. It's always pertaining to the present moment. So the idea isn't that I shouldn't have hope for things in the future. The idea is that if I can experience homelessness in the present moment, what I'm experiencing is a moment of not needing things to be any different than how they are, which if you think about it that when we talk about the the definition of suffering the moment, we want things to be other than how they are. We experienced suffering now there's nothing wrong with hat. It's okay to experience suffering. It's unavoidable impact. We're going to experience this feeling times the moment we want things to be other than how they are. So what we can do in the present moment if I realized that for this one single moment, I don't need anything to be other than how it is. I'm experiencing seen hopelessness but I know hopelessness has a bad rap a bad connotation in our way of thinking in our society and it's a little strange to tell someone that the you're aspiring for hopelessness but remember it's not in the future you see this even in Buddhist. Thought like the in the Meta prayer where you say may you be happy? May you be free? May You? May you be free from suffering? May you be a piece that expression is a implies? A wish that I have for you in the future. But as far as a practice goes what I'm doing when I'm trying to experience hopelessness it's right now in this present moment, it's it's the radical acceptance of how things.

But as far as a practice goes what I'm doing when I'm trying to experience hopelessness it's right now in this present moment, it's it's the radical acceptance of how things are all elaborate on that just a little bit more but I I wanNA share a roberts thoughts. He says, thanks for the episode. The Cohen makes me think of two things one, there's no such thing as A. Bad Day, because even if you're having a bad day billions of others might be having a good one and two time is a concept. It's existence relies on humans believing in it there are no good or bad days because beyond our perception, there are no days. Now I liked it he brings awareness to this idea of time if I say every day is a day Yeah. The the. The idea of a day is something that is a concept right? We we distinguish what a day is based on the rotation of the Sun. We've decided that's it, but you know, where do you draw that line? What if it was twenty five hours in the day and on the twenty fifth hour? There's this great thing that happened How do you define what makes it a day? Good. And what makes a day bad is at ten good things and too bad things as it twelve good bad things and one good thing you know what would make it good or bad and then you have to break down from there will then is it what? What is it by our What what would make every hour is a good hour or every minute is a good minute. Every second is a good second right where do we draw that line because again, the emphasis from the Buddhist perspective is always pertaining to the present moment and any moment can be a good moment if I just bring awareness to it and mindfulness to the moment because if you'll recall the the very definition of mindfulness as the non-judgmental observation of the present moment. So I'm observing the. Present. Moment with non judgment, it's not good or bad. It's just the moment that is and in doing. So yea, could say every moment is a good moment but that's the Co on right because who says, what's good? Who say what's good and what's bad

So, this various forms So if you would like to be one of the people who is involved a little bit more misfits stars, we would love that. Yeah, the biggest form that takes is that you know?

Work through something that you just wouldn't feel safe to work through in public on regular facebook, it's the perfect place for it because everyone will be supportive and kind and helpful and Nice, and it's so great, and it's group of people who I really believed that the folks that are there. Vast majority of them are really just trying to learn about how to be better and how to do better, and we're trying our best to help each other do that. That's it's not people who've got it all figured out. If you have all the answers, please don't try to get getting there. For you. But if you don't feel like you have all the answers, you might really love it I.
Weathering The Storm
"Before jumping into the topic that I have for today I wanted to discuss the Cohen that was shared in the last podcast episode. It goes like this. As the roof was leaking zen master told to monks to bring something to catch the water. One brought a tub the other a basket, the I was severely reprimanded. The second highly praised. I want to share some of the thoughts that were discussed in our patriotic community, because there are always good perspectives shared their, and this first one comes from Darlene. Who says quote this Cohen on makes me think of the emotional enlightenment. You discussed in the episode. We think that happiness comes from cleaning to pleasant emotions, but that actually causes suffering. In the same way roof is leaking except that it is leaking and water will get on the floor because that's what happens when the roof leaks. If we catch the water in a Tub, it will eventually overflow in the end. We can't deny our emotions because they will find a somehow. We can find peace by accepting them wholeheartedly close quote. Tani says quote. I wonder if this. Cohen speaks to our tendency to try to control our emotions. If the roof is leaking, we must wait until the rain is over and fixed the roof work on the source of the anger pain, bringing a tub will only result in a harder time removing it or it will overflow later causing a bigger mess, the basket I'm imagining. One of those meant to carry water from the well to the house. So it holds the water, but not as much as the tub may require more trips outside to dump the water, but it doesn't let us ignore it for too long. We still have to pay attention to the basket and water in this way instead of trying to stop emotions from happening, we need to weather the storm as best we can, and then work on the source of the pain and emotions when things are clearer, if possible close quote. And then Mike shares this, he says quote. Maybe I'm doing this wrong, but I seem to be interpreting each of the most recent, the same way, and most of them I see it as a reminder to not look for wisdom and others, but to look for it in yourself instead in this case, the answer of the Tub was clearly the more appropriate tool for catching water, but the students who chose that severely reprimanded. There's no reason to reprimand this student. He chose an appropriate tool for achieving the particular goal. Perhaps the students only air was in believing the Zen master to be more of a master than himself. I really liked the ideas that were shared. These are only three of the several thoughts that were shared in our Patriot community, but I particularly liked Mike's thoughts here at the end. And I wanted to share some of my thoughts about this Cohen. One I. think that we tend to make meaning of things that we make assumptions and we don't know all the details, so we fill in the gaps I think it's it's what we do. It's a human thing. So with a story like this, we immediately make the assumption. If there's a hole in the roof and water is coming in. We paint a whole picture around that. That water must be leaking on the floor. We need to bring something to catch the water so that it stops leaking on the floor a tub in this case. What does it mean a tub? Is it a? A bathtub, because if it were a bathtub on one hand and a basket on another very much could be that the tab was the wrong answer because it was too big, and the thing is, we don't know so we. We paint the story we fill in the details, and then we make the assumption based on all of these details that we we just don't know. So, we're really good at making meaning of things, and because of our discomfort with not knowing the details we fill in the gaps. And! That's what this story kind of reminded me of the fact that I don't know the details I mean first of all. Why do even assume that? Just because the master reprimanded one and didn't reprimand the other that that means one was wrong and one was right. What if? What if the one who brought the basket has been struggling in class, and has been getting everything wrong, and was feeling really down, and the Zen master decided to praise him this time, so he wouldn't feel so bad and reprimanded the one who brought the TUB. Who always gets things right and maybe needed to feel a little more humbled.

That's why I was like we gotta talk about good news is do we do so what happened, Robin? What happened the Supreme Court? A conservative Supreme Court. I was really nervous about this. We talked about this case with Anthony in our lawyer questions at the beginning of the season, but the Supreme Court ruled that they cannot discriminate against lgbtq employees. It's amazing. I didn't think it was going to happen and I was afraid it was going to struck down. It came as a real shock. It came as a real shock to everybody so basically you cannot be fired for being for your for your sexuality Orientational. Thank you sexual orientation or gender? It was always gender, but what trump was doing? His administration was trying to say that gender did not also apply to sexual orientation, and surprisingly enough like some conservatives dissented, and not descended I guess I mean I says wrong way to say it, but some conservatives came over to our side and. said that it should be protected. I know I can look at us I guess. Everybody was shocked that it was Gorsuch who actually came over to our side and he actually even wrote the opinion.

"So before we jump into the podcast episode for today, I want to share a few thoughts about the Zenko on that shared at the end of the last podcast episode, so the Zenko on a shared goes like this once Matsu, and pay Chang were walking along, and they saw some wild ducks fly by. What is that? The master asked wild ducks by Chang replied with. Have they gone? They flown away Pie Chang, said the master then twisted. And when Pyeongchang cried out in pain Matsu said, when have they ever flown away? Now this is a fun another fun Zenko on. In that it does. The same thing must zen Koan presents with a little story and kind of leaves. You thinking like What is that all about? So I wanted to share some of the thoughts that were shared in our Patriot community. and. We discussed the Zenko on their anytime. That I share a on in the podcast episode. So this I thought comes from Denise, says quote pay, Chang says the ducks have flown away, but if you could ask the ducks. They probably don't think they've flown away. They might think they were on their way to finally arrive somewhere. This on is to me a reminder that it is important not to hold our views to strong. My view might be very different from another person's view on the exact same matter, and we might very well be equally right or equally wrong. Just like Pie Chang thinking the ducks are flying away and the ducks thinking. They're actually on their way to arrive close quote. Mo- kind of expands a little on this to most says quote This Cohen made me wonder what we mean when we say gone. When is something here? And when something gone in actuality, there is no clear line between the two, and nothing is ever truly gone, and the same way that it is never truly here. Because of the nature of interdependence. The ducks may seem to be gone, but if you ask yourself, what is doc you start to realize? There is no such thing as an individual duck that is independent and separate from the rest of the world. It is by nature dependent on the causes and conditions of everything around it. That I think of this, Cohen leads me to the becoming nobody episode like I am nobody. The duck is also nothing, and it has never gone because from one point of view, it was never here and from another. It is always here close quote. I enjoyed those thoughts I mo.. A noose. Gus says quote. When I first heard this Cohen, I, imagine a state where the ducks are flying, but not going anywhere and then started thinking what is flying then if it's not going? For example transitioning to another place in my mind, I could still see ducks flying, but not necessarily going anywhere a state of flying or a state of movement, but not gone yet and not away yet. And then landed on a final thought. Well, who is doing the go in? And I wondered if it was Pyeongchang Chang because he was the one projecting the idea of. They're going their departure. All of this reminds me of how we impose our interpretation on events that happen and how we get so caught up in things that haven't happened yet or will happen at all close quote. And, then the final show the thoughts I. WanNa share with you. Come from. Robert, who says quote? Ducks fly south for the winter and flying north in the summer, so Pyeongchang may have assumed that they were flying away somewhere as they do. Depending on the season, the master may have been trying to get. Pie Chang to relate duck migration with our thought migration. When we sit to meditate our thoughts, come and go away depending on the season of our life that day or moment our thoughts may be with us or away from US and winter. Our thoughts are away, and we know not. Where in summer we have. Our thoughts focused on our breathing. Close quote. And I really enjoyed. Everyone's thoughts their interpretation and analysis of the specific Zenko on.

It's like a thing in the several is that I didn't know that four like during this social distancing time, everybody has rainbows in their windows. They had him for like two months, but it wasn't right or something. You know it started in March when we started this whole fiasco, but I'm going to call them all rainbow flags kids. Are because we don't get to like walk around and see all the commercialization of pride like the game show, and all that, which by the way that's not a bad thing, I.

Five Daily Life Guidelines
"Before jumping into the topic for today's podcast episode I want to talk about the Zenko on that I shared in the last podcast episode. So the Cohen says when the many are reduced to one to what is the one reduced? I WANNA share some of the thoughts that come from some of the community members on patron, regarding this co on, so the first one comes from Lauren says to me. This week's Co on made me think of the interdependent nature of reality. I also thought about the often used car analogy, if you are taking a car apart piece by piece, when does it stop becoming a car? The many car parts are often reduced to the concept of a car in our minds. But the reality is that each component is unique and into interdependent with all things. So I think it's a lesson to remind ourselves that every concept we have of a physical thing or an idea is made up of sub components, and those are made up of sub components, and so on this is so we can be mindful of what it took for this thing this concept this moment to arise, so we may act more skillfully by having right view in the world. Close quote. Morella says I really like this on as it makes me think about the concepts of oneness, interconnectedness and non-self all in one sentence, if the sense of separation between South and other disappears than there is no one left at least not in the same way as before, the many were reduced to one. This doesn't mean that the one is reduced to nothing, but rather that the one has become the many close quote. And then Matt says I am reminded of the story of the blind men and the elephant in this situation, reducing the number of blind man would reduce our understanding of the elephant. I really love this Cohen. It also made me think of how a forest benefits from a diversity of species, a reduction of species makes the forest less able to cope with change. I think humanity is learning this from the Internet. We can become trapped in thought bubbles on the Internet reducing the views that we are exposed to makes us more vulnerable close quote. A enjoyed the thoughts that were shared on the Patriot. Community specifically these by Lauren Morella Hand Matt and I wanted to share some of my own thoughts, regarding this specific, Cohen I agree with with what was shared where the invitation of the Co on his to see the interdependent nature of things, and what's fascinating to me when we when we start to think about this in terms of the one in the many, if you think about it in terms of a line that goes up or a line, the goes down, you end up at the same place, which is the point of uncertainty in the point of not knowing so if I were take the car as the analogy. Car is a concept. It's an idea and yet it's a thing it's real and yet I could reduce it to all of its parts and end up with another concept for example an engine right the engine of the car. Now it's not the car. It's the engine, but you do the same they're. The engine reduced that to its parts Oh. will now I have piston and all these other parts of an engine you take the piston reduce it to its parts, and at some point you go all the way down to the lowest known particles that we know of. And then what are those made of and you're still left with wheel? We don't know we just know as far as we can go. There's this I think its quirks right quarks quirks but you get to that will what are those? What are those made? Is there anything smaller and again the answer would be? We don't know at least for now. But if you go up the line, it's the same thing or many states make a country. Many countries make a continent. Many continents make the planet. Many planets make the solar system. Many solar systems make a galaxy many galaxies and you go up up up up until you say okay. We've got the universe and the universe is expanding now you can go into the theoretical explanations beyond that, but if it's a multi verse, what if it's string bubbles you know the the various explanations of what there could be with multi verse theory you end up at the same place, which is, we don't know. Know and I think it's kind of fun to think about that. In terms of this co on with the the many and the one what you have is again the many and the one the one in the many many and the one. It depends how you WanNa, define it right. Many states make up one

"Rightfully so think long-term with it because it's very expensive to change and so when because you're buying presses that cost five to six hundred dollars a piece just for like one part of the label. We have three different processes. I think that you have to to buy. They may even be more expensive. I can't even remember but it's very expensive to change like even subtle details so as you have to think. Long term are going to look like in ten years or five years. How HAS IT changed? How much can cause a change so it was just very well thought out it had to be in and our designer kind gave us that mindset which. I appreciate so one of the brands that is new to the market and gets a lot of criticism For for its price point is Peerless and they went through an exhaustive amount of research effort to create that that bottle which is one of the reasons why it's it's so expensive. How do you now that you are in the position you are? Do you have a little bit more respect for something like peerless. Because of that effort design into the bottle being password to the into the cost of the final product. I think it's a little bit different. I think what peerless has done? I mean they've won awards for bottle design right. They're also winning awards for their whiskey but they've won awards for bottle design our intention when we started right. I mean we had lofty ambitions when he walks and do all. Because my uncle owns the the place and makes like the box for Booker's Craig's. I was like we need to put in a box. It's GonNa have a two or something then you realize how expensive things are when you're doing all these runs and you're like okay. We need to get the cost down and totally like you said dictates the price what ends up in the consumer's hands and especially coming from a source market like it's almost impossible to at least in day and age unless you're buying thousands of barrels to get a source product under fifty dollars. It's it's impossible and making sure that your packaging looks good but is also cost. Effective is really. We've tried to be at right. We didn't want to be in the sixty or eighty cent wine bottle shape. Were in the two dollars and fifty cents or two dollars. Seventy five cent This kind of Parker shape right. We felt like will pay the extra dollar fifty or whether it is to be able to get us to that point so there is there. Is those decisions that we kind of went down the path that said like. Where can we make the bottle upscale without completely blowing out of the water right? I mean I know that we talk about peerless like I think what twenty bucks of the bottle was twenty bucks of that whole the whole product is into the packaging. That's a Lotta money right. How much is every bottle? I would say into ours. We've got somewhere. I would say less than five dollars. Maybe five dollars a bottle or somewhere. Yeah why did you all go with? Because a lot of people what they'll do is they'll cut body on the cork or the closure you guys use. Looks like he is us one of the higher grades at Cork here. Actually you know it was. It was funny going into that so we started off in I. That was the that was the battle that I thought I thought on that hill and I said guys. I want a natural cork and not only that is I said okay. Well by the way also when you when you're looking at tops there are so many damn tops out there and so I said like okay. Well we need to find a blacktop. We like would natural would. What DOES THIS FIT? Does this fit well. The packaging finally found one. We found somebody that had these antique blackwood tops that had natural cork in stock three thousand units dot. Done right. We'll take them and they fit the at the opening yet thing you had to go and try to find the the whole fittings for it then anyway then you start going on this path and then you realize like Oh my God. We've we've run through three thousand corks. We need more quirks and then they're like well to. We had those in stock. They're not in stock anymore. If you WANNA get the Antique Blackwood with Natural Cork it's GonNa take around twelve to sixteen weeks like hot now like four like no. You gotta be kidding me. And they're like but we have these synthetic ones available and I was like all right. Well let me let me pull the audience. And that's one of the greatest things that we have about having the Patriot community. Is I pull out there and I said like. Do care something synthetic or if it's natural and it was it was about sixty forty. Most people just didn't care The people that that actually didn't care actually wanted synthetic had really good reasons of not wanting natural cork in the most people that wanted natural cork was mostly. Just a stack right. That was the only driver and so I said are off. Let's go ahead and let's make the change will move to synthetic because you know there's various reasons from When did you guys make the change in it? Because I didn't I didn't notice it had to been. I think episode eleven ish is when we had to make that change In and then we started going on a path where like okay. Well when you order more. Let's go custom right. And so that's we actually started looking at putting in our custom logo on top of the as well that's cool So you guys come out with us you know. It is a really beautiful bottle. You guys did a great job and you've done a really good job of selecting good whiskey. One of your whiskeys was in..

"Understanding. That is empowering and at the same time confirms to me that there's nowhere to hide because it's just me and there's no handle hold because it's just me so that's the first one the second one is that I value all teachings that helped me to understand the nature of suffering the permanence of all things and the interdependent nature of all things and I recognize that wise teachings can help me to live in alignment with my values now so this goes hand in hand with the the second refuge. Which is I take refuge in the Dharma which is commonly translated to The teachings and what I enjoy about this one is reminds me that there are powerful teachings everywhere right and a lot of these for me are found in in Buddhism Buddhist teachings and Buddhist concepts and Buddhist stories and each of these coins that we read and There there's so many sources for these and I find I find value in these things because they helped me to Perceive reality in a more skillful way. So that's the second one. The third one goes hand in hand with the teaching of I take refuge in the Sanga. Which is the community and this kind of eluded me for a while. I don't have a group that I get to practice. Where they live in. A home with people are not interested in Buddhism I live in a community with people who are generally not interested in Buddhism and these concepts and ideas and topics. I don't really talk to them with many people. Even the people closest to me So I don't have that sense of community so this the way I were to this is that I value the friendship the guidance and support of others who are on this path and I recognize that I can offer my friendship guidance and support to others and to me. This is where the podcast comes in. You know it may not be in a one on one setting that. I have a closeness with view as the listener but in a way. I'm extending my friendship to you by sharing my thoughts. I'm allowing you as the listener. I'm myself to be open and vulnerable to express my views and my thoughts and some of these are my inner deep pots right. And I don't know you. I don't know who's listening and that to me is part of the sense of community. It may feel at times like it's a one way thing and I've received emails from podcast listeners. Like you who might be listening now. Who feel like you've had a little Peek into the window of my mind. And you've gotten to know me throughout the years because I share a lot of my story and where I am and what I'm doing and it feels like you have a friend in me an may feel like it's a one way street because it's just you listening to me and I don't have that back. I don't get to hear your story and with some of you I do because you'll email me and now especially do because of the Patriot community that that has opened up this new. Benue to be able to share in real time messages and emails and just live interaction with With with podcast listeners. And it's been a really fun transition From going at this totally alone till now having some people That I get to share this with but at the same time. Really whether you're in that Adriaan community or not if you're just a listener of the podcast you you're in that circle even though it may be like. I said one way but that's okay. It's okay that it's that way and and I find value in offering my friendship my guidance and support the others and that to me is part of the personal values personal version of of my understanding of the taking refuge. So it's kind of a fun correlation again. These two notions of we go through life. And we understand that. There's nowhere to hide We hide behind our stories and I may have a story about myself that I find myself hiding behind. And if someone comes and pokes and prods at that it reminds me. Oh Wow why does this Why does this feel this way? Because I'm protecting the story and I and then I pop out of there and and decide. Okay no all right. I'M NOT GONNA hide behind that and that's little by little over. The years has allowed me to be more and more comfortable with just being vulnerable and just being me and not hiding behind any stories anymore and not be hiding hiding behind any of my views. My ideas that I clung to so so tightly And recognizing that there's nothing to hold and that as I go through this whole experience and this is far from over right. I have so many stages that I anticipate going through at the same time with the uncertainty. Who knows when this journey ends but for now I anticipate there? There's a lot more hope that there's a lot more and I and I'm going through it with no hand to hold. It's me and in a strange yet profound way I have like again going back to the bird rate. I realized I don't need a hand to hold because I have my own wings and I am learning to advance with my own footing and it. It's me it's me figuring this out and there's a sense of a faith in my ability to figure things out and I'm not saying that means it's going to be easy or that it's going to be pleasant or that that's going to be An enjoyable thing. I recognize that there are going to be difficult days ahead. I know that I'm going to experience days of sorrow of pain of Of I dunno if discontent is the right word. But but certainly sorrow and sadness and heartache. Because that's the nature of life and I think the big difference from before was. I thought that there was hope in the sense that I know I can get over these things and that the rainy days one day the Sun will shine. You know the and that's an hopelessness for me. It doesn't carry a negative connotation for me it goes. It gets to the heart of what I think Buddhism has done for me is that I'm no longer afraid to feel. I'm not afraid to feel the the sadness that's going to hit me when I lose a loved one. I'm not afraid of the anxiety that I might feel If I find myself in a position where I. I'm struggling to provide for my family. I'm not afraid of the discomfort that I'm going to feel when I'm late to be somewhere and that's when I get a flat tire. I'm not afraid of the the frustrations. I'm not afraid of any of the emotions that can arise. I'm not afraid to just feel it on. That's the difference to me. That's in a nutshell. The having no hand to hold that is the The concept of of hopelessness is strangely for me or groundless nece. I think I like I like thinking about this more in terms of groundless. Nece which is that. There's nowhere to stand this just experiencing life and whatever likes gonNA throw our way. I feel like I've become good feeling. And I've shifted away from thinking that the whole point was to feel good. I realized now that now. It's much more skillful to just be good feeling and that that is a profound shift for me and I think that is what I'm trying to convey in this podcast episode sometimes I feel like my thoughts just ramble and I tried to tie it all together to connect the dots and maybe sometimes they do. Maybe sometimes I don't but again I. I think it's cool that I get to just share all this. I don't have a close person that I can call and share all these things with at times but I get to sit here at my computer and talk into a microphone and I know that when I post this there will be real people on the other side listening and these ideas carry weight and I get a messages real messages from real people who talk about how meaningful these concepts and ideas are in how life changing they are for you listening and it makes me feel very connected to you. Even though I don't know you it's just a really profound experience. I get a little emotional thinking about that but again it just makes me feel gratitude. I want to say thank you to all of you. Who Listen who take the time to listen to these. Podcasts episodes grateful for the messages that I receive and I try to respond all of them. But I I apologize that I'm so behind and don't get too because The podcast has grown quite a bit But thank you for being a part of this journey.

Three Approaches for Doubt and Mistrust
"And now this jump right into the discussion around the Zenko on that was shared in the last podcast episode. So this Cohen says one day. Chaozhou fell in the snow and called out. Help me help me help me up. Held ME UP. A monk came and lay down beside him. Chow Chu got up and went away. And that's it. That's the Cohen. And I WANNA share first of all some of the thoughts that come from the Patriot community. Because as you know I've mentioned we we have discussions around the podcast in around the Cohen. And I WANNA share some of these thoughts so ellen says quote this is what the Co on makes me think of when experiencing difficulty emotions like grief or depression and your loved ones. Want to help. But there's no way to pull you out of those feelings or make them go away so often. The best way to help is just to be with you. While you're feeling them the feelings can run their course with someone you love by your side until you have the strength to get up on your own close quote and I agree with Allen's assessment here I think oftentimes we try to help someone and our way of helping isn't helpful and other times. You know all we really need to do is be with someone and just by being with them like in this case the monk lays down beside him and that's all it that's all he needed. Chaozhou got up and went away is what it says. Okay Matt says quote I think it is an example of reactivity chow falls and his initial reaction is to panic. He fears that he cannot free himself from the situation. The monk comes in lies beside him to show him that. The situation is not a crisis he too is lying in the snow and did so voluntarily in doing so one can see that there is no emergency lows quote. This is an interesting take on it. I hadn't thought about it from that perspective but I think again with these. Cohen's you know this is a an invitation for you to extract meaning or whatever you're going to get out of it for you and it's Kinda cool. That Matt stalled this. This is kind of a different angle to it that I think is accurate. And a lot of instances in life where we are in a situation and we're thinking how Megan to do this but it's helpful to know that somebody else has been in this situation and they were able to find a way to to cope with it or deal with it then I can too and I know I felt that before and honestly I think a lot of us are feeling this. Now with everything that we're going through with the lockdowns in the With with the covert nineteen. I was telling my wife this the other day how much more difficult it would be to face these uncertainties in terms of jobs and the potential financial repercussions. If if I knew this was just happening to me but somehow by knowing that the whole world is trying to figure out what to do about work in about Income and things like that somehow makes it so much less stressful. Because I know it's not just me. We're all trying to figure it out and that's kind of what Matt is talking about here so I I like that thought. I think there's something there to it. Suzanne says quote this Cohen. Really resonated with me and I was reminded of the key. Idea of Montessori. Education helped me to do it on my on. Chaozhou asks for someone to help him help them up. Which would be quite a passive way of reacting to the present situation like a child asking their parents to do something for them. Instead the monk lies down and shows Chow Chu the passivity of his response. Once having realized this Chaozhou is able to act for himself it up under his own steam and walk away and then she says it it also reminds me of the raft analogy the monk and his compassion are the raft which enables Chow Chu to get up and leave behind the monk. Which is the wrapped? Close quote. It's always fascinating to hear other people's perspectives on these stories. Because we're all in different places in life we've had different experiences in life and we see things from a unique vantage point. And that's what I thought of when I was reading Suzanne's take on this. Like what a cool way to see that again from a perspective that hadn't crossed my mind and the correlations that she's drawing that hadn't crossed my mind and I liked them They make a lot of sense to me and then I wanNA finish with one more with Nancy's thoughts so nancy says quote. This Cohen makes me think about when I have a problem or situation that is troubling me and I turned to a friend or a loved one for help. The best help I have received is when that person simply sits with me and listens close quote and that's getting back to kind of the way Ellen talked about it and what I kind of took from it. Which is that sometimes. The best help is the help. That's just being with someone and not actually trying to help that certainly a lesson. I took away from it and I think sometimes we see this in our own lives that the best way to help someone to just sit and be with them and to not try to help in fact. Oftentimes the trying to help makes the problem worse. I know I've experienced that Both as the receiving on the receiving end of that but also on the other end where. I'm the one who's trying to help and I'm catching myself that my health is not helping him. I don't know if you've experienced that would assume some of you have. You can kind of correlate this also with the concept of teaching people to fish instead of giving fish I've correlated this a little bit with the thought of with my kids like teaching them how to think rather than what to think so. Yeah my mind has gone to a lot of different places with this co on. But at the end of the day I like visualizing Chow Chu Falling in the snow. And calling help me up helped me up. And then among laying there next to him and Chacha just gets up and walks away These little stories can always be unpacked to gain a lot of perspectives and thoughts and teachings and again. There's never a right answer. The point wasn't the answer. The point was what did it make you think of in the process of thinking maybe learned something about yourself. I think that's what's cool about these. Cohen's
"Hello Hello Welcome to sheep. I guess I am just a cup for many of you are watching or listening for the first time. That's me this. Is She podcast? Episode to sixty four with my co-host. Lc as Khobar and our producer. John Jim Ingo. How are you guys doing today? Not to ridicule any news whatsoever about anything at all. I mean podcasting but like other like personal stuff. Well Easter was exciting. I did a drive by dinner. How while because I went to my ex this house and then because I'm not going in because they go to work and everything they brought dinner out so the kind of we set like six feet apart and they talked and I had dinner and it was weird. It was really weird. Bonnie says it's a facebook privacy thing about stream yard. They can't see your name unless you grant them permission right and I guess people just don't do it right so no or do they want in that point. A lot of them don't wanted grant permission right so but see. This is a facebook private group so we can see them in here anyhow. This isn't GonNa go. This video is not going anywhere I get it. It's not a big deal. Oh so elsie. So yes Jessica and I figured out something today that I can't believe I didn't think of this. Oh God Jessica has the adobe suite so she has adobe audition okay so one of the things. We've always had problems with his she uses quicktime and some so. She has adobe audition she can record right into addition and we've never used it in two hundred sixty four episodes. Why is that that is so card yet? Dum Dum Dum Dorky. It's Kinda Dorky. Right Kinda dark. You must have known that I've had it though right. No I wouldn't have put to do together because the thing is though just you wanted to break up with adobe suite so many separate times true and not one of the Times that. We've had a discussion about your break-up the possible break-up with adobe suite has audition ever come into the conversation that's never part of your everyday. It's just you know photoshop. Right so we use that to record her instead of quicktime and it would be so much easier and so much better and we would always know that the Mike correctly picked all the good stuff. I am so happy. Yes and we can also add to the track. We can also add compression because just could really her voice can really use compression so that you can do all of that. Pre like Yes prefixed prefixed. For her right so right now on excited like like a kid right before. Christmas. Because I'm excited because when we get off here we're going to make an appointment. We're going to go through this thing. I'm sure there'll be a lot of yelling and hollering there. Yes probably I noticed that I do have an issue when I'm trying to describe and do things when I can't see. It frustrates me when I can't see the other person's what they're doing. It frustrates me and I've been doing a lot of that lately for different clients and stuff as they set up to record in their home. Oh okay yes I need. I need to calm down. I need to be able to breathe through that. I need some kind of yoga breathing. Technique to center my Chee. Said what are you Senator Senator? Something we can just give you just can send Isaac. I can send may May and you can get through them. Then you'll find yours end. You know it's like a living. We'll be like here deal with her for a bit and then leave work through. That had four under the age of four. I know but you haven't. When was the last time? Oh well that's true. This is what I'm saying. It's like there's a practice I know when I'm in I'm in my sixties or seventies and somebody tells me how to deal with a four year five eight year old. I'm not I'm not going to be adapted. I've been like you know. Been out of it for awhile. I'm over. Yeah it's like it's forgotten like I don't even want to think about when they were infants. I don't I know Yeah No. I don't really like the idea of taking my clients and comparing them to eight year old child. I just. That's not the way it is that feeling. Oh the tenseness in the chest and the tightening in the chest he so we have some like communications. Lets say why. Don't we just acknowledge the folks and just to let everybody know that we are as of now for the past few episodes? We as in the sheep. Podcast team has been recording directly into the sea. Podcast super squad. Which is our Patriot community. So you guys can kind of watch. Us Record live in there. We're going to do the show as always Joe. Johns GonNa do post production and everything but we do have a live chat so we have some people there. We have Bonnie and we have Masai Lena. We have tiffany Humboldt who. She just actually posted that. She's. She wore her flower crown from she. Podcasts live during during the Hardcore Mermaid. Show on Friday. That's amazing that's so cool. And then she. She's asking him. What version of Stream Yard? We are using John. This question is for you. Well stream yards a web application. So you don't have to update it so I don't know what version I know what? She's talking about tiffany. You can only record stream yard if you're a pro client pay for that So in order for you to to be able to record and download your files you have to be if you are not a pro then all you can do is stream. So you have the capability to stream. I don't know how many hours for you know. I don't think anybody needs more hours to stream. But that those are all pro functionalities one of the things that Justin I also wanted to do was to do a double streaming stream to hear and to the podcast main group or to the podcast page. And we can't also can't do that unless you're pro so if you're a pro you can. I think you can Cross post to two places at once. We have done that and if we ask. Yeah have the option of two. Yeah Yeah if you're did you upgrade it Ogden profile? I've been down. No I know I know John Is. Yeah but you know I didn't know. Yeah Yeah you can only do the same time. Yeah no no basic no base. It used to be. I think way back right. John like right windstream yard. I started loud. Yeah they allow for yet when it was in. Beta. That's right. They did allow for for recording and downloading but once they opened it up. Then that's what you pay for. May GotTA STAY IN BUSINESS. Somehow and you want him to be able to stay in business. I mean it is an amazing platform. Yeah we're streaming. You know I'm telling you right now. Once they decide if they can record audio as separate separate tracks right they will be a force in podcasting. I don't know if they ever get there yet but still
"patriot community" Discussed on Rob Has a Podcast
"From which is plastic survive. Press start off very very bad plan but it's good. It's good stuff that that being said you know the community that we built here we did. We do have the infrastructure in place coming into this of this amazing community of people that are virtually connected around this passion. And we're very lucky that's about Survivor has not interrupted during this timeframe. And we have this wonderful distraction that we get to come on here and talk or but even even beyond survivor. I think one of the things that I think most of the people who who've been patients for a while with really speak to this idea that like you're not just gaining new people to talk about a show you love with like you're just gaining new people in your life and I think one of the things that's happening right now is as much of our lives are moving into this virtual space. You know we're going to be finding new ways of meeting people come meet. Make some new friends like there's A. There's a lot of friends that are just waiting for us and some new families and some new people to to show you some love and comfort during a really hard time. I think that's been one of the beauties of the Patriot community in the RTP family. So Great Sephora patron pub trivia coming up in a little bit tonight. We're going to get ready for that Josh.

Jr NV They will play us out with Last week so winning one to take care. Everybody have a good one bye..
There Is Nothing I Dislike
"Before jumping into the podcast topic for today. I want to discuss and share some thoughts around the Zenko on that I shared in the last podcast episode. And this is the Cohen goes like this lean. He said there is nothing I dislike now. I'm I mentioned in the previous podcast episode. This is one of those lifetime co onset. You could really work with us for for the rest of your life constantly analyzing and asking yourself. How is that possible to to reach a state where there's nothing that I dislike and like I said I I like this co on a lot and I like to revisited? Think about it often. I WANNA share some of my thoughts around it. I I want to share some of the thoughts that were shared in our discussion group so on the Patriot community for the podcast we have discussions around the podcast episodes around the Zen coonskin and many other things but these are some of the thoughts that came out of the discussion around this specific Cohen. So Christina said open quote there are parts of me ego states that disliked things and suffer from these emotions but I the IM parentheses can choose to access other parts ego states. That will help me find inner peace about these things through. Mindfulness and meditation through choosing I can think enact more skillfully despite disliking the person or situation and then she goes on to say it's also fun to think. There's nothing I like. You can play with this and ask yourself. Are there also times when I don't even like the things that people I almost always like? Who am I in those moments close quote and I really like what Christina shares here I like that. She's showing the other side of the same coin. If I'm going to say there's nothing I dislike. The similar analysis would work say there is nothing I like and I think that's accurate when we when we'd really start to break this down and that's another fun way to work with it when you find yourself a person or a situation that you really do like to ask yourself well Do I really like what part of me likes this person in the same way that we do with things that we dislike now. Bob Shares a slightly different thought. Here he says so. This Cohen amuses me since my current focus seems to be observing. How often I arises within me. This Cohen reminds me that disliking is not possible when there is no I close quote and I think that's one of the powerful parts of this Cohen for me is the recognition of who is the I in the statement. There's nothing I dislike and when I understand or have more. Skillful contact context around this. I that supposedly goes around liking and disliking things than yes. I suddenly discovered there is no I to be disliking anything and in that sense. There's nothing I dislike is accurate because there is no I I I like that interpretation. Morella shares this. She says open quote the Cohen. Made me think about equanimity and non attachment. There's nothing I dislike. When I observe without getting attached it is an invitation to look inward and investigate. Why am disliking something or someone? I usually find that the reason I dislike something or someone is because of cravings versions or fear and I love the idea of using the CO as a reminder to look deeply into the causes of my dislikes and work with my cravings versions close quote and yes I really like what Morella is bringing up here which is what I try to mentioned with all of this right. This is always an invitation to look inward and to find the reason why we dislike something or someone rather than focusing on on the dislike or even the like as if it was this thing that is not that has nothing to do me and I think that's where we get stuck. Sometimes we treat things like if there's something that I don't like it has everything to do with the thing I don't like and doesn't have much to do with me when in reality if there's something I dislike it's me that's doing the disliking so it's it's about looking in and finding that what. What part of me doesn't what I'm experiencing this person that I'm with and for me. My thoughts regarding this Cohen. I really like investigating the I in terms of impermanent send interdependence again this notion of when I can see through the illusion of there being a permanent or independent me that exists going around this world and liking things are disliking things when I start to see myself in the context of impermanent bean impermanent and being interdependent in other words the impermanent me is the me that one day. I like this another day. I don't the interdependent me. Is that under this set of circumstances. I like this under this other set of circumstances. I don't like it and when I recognize that that gives me a a big sense of freedom because I can recognize I may dislike this thing now but in another place or in another time I might like it and also from another vantage point. You may like this and I may not like this and if I were you I would liken and dislike all the same things that you like and dislike. I think. Sometimes that's hard for us to really understand because we really do have this tendency of thinking that the way we go about experiencing life is the most accurate way to a certain degree it is. It's not that it's the most accurate it's that it's the only one that makes sense because we've only ever experienced life from one vantage point the one that we're in right now in this present moment and it's really hard to put myself in someone else's shoes maybe to some degree. If I could say well I've been there before so I can see why you view this this way or that way. Or why you like this or dislike that because they've been where you are that's a little bit easier. But that's still an incomplete picture because I've never been where you are right now where you are right right now as there were. I am right now is here and those are not the same place. They can never be the same place. I can only ever be where I am here. And now therefore my perspective and my interpretation of reality is unique. It's mine it's it's the only one that I'm capable of of experiencing and to me that's really helpful to know because I can take your interpretation of reality and when you give me a description of your likes and dislikes. I can at least understand that. Wow for you that must make perfect sense because my picture of reality makes perfect sense to me and there. I think there's wisdom to be had in simply recognizing and acknowledging that well if I were you and I was in your place in time with every single set of circumstances in causes conditions. That have allowed you to be who you are right here right now. I would probably be doing and saying and thinking the exact things that you say in thinking do
"patriot community" Discussed on Secular Buddhism
"Podcast this is episode number one hundred and twenty four. I'm your host Noah Rochetta and today. I'm going to talk about dealing with people that you don't like as always keep in mind. You don't need to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist you can use it to learn to be a better whatever you already are so today's podcast. Episode comes from the request of an email. I received someone asking me if I would be willing to do an episode where I discussed the idea or the concept or give tips on. How do we deal with people that we don't like and I thought that would be a good idea especially during this time Where you know the way social media works. We're all dealing with people that we don't like and perhaps if it's not people that we don't like it's ideas that we don't like But it's I. It seems to be a prevalent thing and I'm trying to shift a little bit of the concepts of the podcast towards a little bit more of a hot as all this apply every day day to day scenario. So this is my My approach at this specific topic. Like how does how do these concepts and ideas that we learn about in Buddhism apply to everyday scenarios like Dealing with people that we don't like so. I thought that would be a fun way to start off this podcast episode. So first of all though I want to go into the Zenko on that I left in the last podcast episode and this is where among asked South Zoo to teach him and sows. Who asked have you eaten your meal? The monk replied yes. I have then go wash. Your Bowl said zoo at that moment. The monk was enlightened now this Cohen to me Does a really good job of presenting the simple and profound way that Zen Buddhism tries to simplify the the whole point of what we're practicing in what we're doing I want to share a couple of thoughts from people from the Patriot community. Who were we had a discussion around this co on in the last week or week and a half I the first thought comes from Nancy. Who says quote my understanding? Enlightenment only happens when we are fully aware in the present moment no matter what we are doing even washing the dish close quote. I like that thought the Nancy shares were enlightenment. Happens in the present moment and no matter what we're doing even washing the dish. I do think that this definitely alludes to that where it doesn't matter what you're doing you could be out walking the dog. You could be stuck at a traffic light. You could be in the middle of an argument with someone you dislike and these are the the moments where you could notice something that you hadn't noticed before and that moment of awareness can have a A component of I guess you could call enlightenment and that's what this Cohen is trying to point at Like that thought I. I like this additional thoughts from Michael who says quote. The Bowl has served its purpose for the monk. Who used it for his lunch but now the dirty bowl is of no use to the next hungry person that comes along by washing the bowl after he has finished using it for his own purpose he then gives someone else the opportunity to make use of the bowl to nourish themselves the monk could contemplate the someone before him had washed the bowl which allowed him to use to enjoy. Its use close quote. I like that Michael kind of extrapolated out of this the nature of interdependence and how indeed the bowl was there for me to use it. Someone must have clean that before me. And if I'm cleaning it now this will allow another Monka. Some point to also enjoy use of the woollen. I I liked that line of thinking and remember with all of these know. I mentioned this a lot but these Cohen's are meant to get us to look inward so it's what you get out of the Cohen. That really matters. It's it's not about Discovering the the right answer so it's fun to see what other people extract out of these Cohen's that's one of the things that I enjoy by reading the various descriptions and thoughts and feedback that come in on these discussions on the Patriot community. So here's another one from David. He says quote. This Cohen reminds me of something that ancient Greek philosophers such as epic. Titas used to say to those who wanted to learn from them. Rather than reading. Many books and learning quotes. The students should practice making the good choices in their everyday lives so when the monk asked about teaching him he replied with the same kind of idea instead of reading. More books are listening to Buddhist teachers or on about how to achieve enlightenment. Go Wash your bowl as you should and practice living mindfully now. Of course I. I really enjoyed the thought around this interpretation of the Cohen. Because I highly agree with that you know you can. You can read and you can listen. And you can devour the theory behind Living more mindful. You're the theory behind all of these topics in concepts and ideas that we encounter Buddhism. But nothing will substitute for the experiential understanding that you will gain when you're just out doing whatever it is that you're doing and I can't overemphasize that whatever it is. You're doing in the same way that that Nancy said you could be even washing dish and that Definitely gets to the heart of what this co on his talking about and then one more thought this is from Brayden. Who says open quote for me? This Cohen makes me think of the way I go about enlightenment personally. I've delved wholeheartedly into enlightenment and forgotten about the world around me and the responsibilities I have outside the desire for enlightenment. The pursuit of that desire has gone in the way of my other responsibilities and I've neglected tasks and people in my life. This Cohen is a reminder to me to follow through with the things outside my journey and And that can help in setting up an environment that promotes enlightenment as I. Focus my whole attention on studying and learning close quote And I really agree with what? Brayden is Emphasizing here in his understanding of the Co on the Cohen is an invitation to remember to go back to washing the dishes rather than getting lost in the pursuit of enlightenment and the irony in that especially with his Co. on is that the moment the Monk hears this. He is enlightened when right it says at that moment the monk was enlightened when he realizes use has to go wash his bowl and to me. That's incredibly profound. Because just like Brayden is talking about. We can get caught up in this pursuit of becoming enlightened. And it's like wow. I'M GONNA go become enlightened so I don't have time to wash the dishes I've got to go. Sit In on my meditation cushion and you know. Hit my one hour to hour. Meditation goal for the day and in the process of pursuing. This conceptual idea we have of enlightenment. Were missing the whole point because it was in the washing of the dish that you could have found it and that to me is right at the heart of of what Zen is constantly trying to push us back to the the everyday nature of this stuff. So my thoughts on the CO on. This is an invitation to go back to the simple Understanding of the experiential nature of of life. You know it's important to emphasize here. The enlightenment is a concept. It's an idea and we we gain this idea from books from people from teachers from all kinds of places but an idea gets planted in your head that hey there's the thing and it's called enlightenment and then here's how you go obtain it and then we get caught up in that and what. We're trying to get back to in a lot of ways with this practices back to the present moment and in and to live a life. That's a little bit more skillful and less reactive and since you just finished eating perhaps the most skillful thing to do next is to wash the bowl. And that's it. That's how simple that was but to understand that and to do that because it's a non-reactive thing like I am washing the bull because I understand that it makes sense at this moment in time to now wash the bowl that is that's it that's enlightenment and there's nothing big and great and vast beyond that and at the same time that awareness that the skillful thing to do is to wash the bowl. That's it that's the magic of awareness. That's how I understand this and I. I want to kind of continue on this discussion but applying it to the topic that I wanted to share today. Which is the answer for the email I received with. How do we deal with people that we don't like well? Awareness is GonNa make play a role in this and I'll get to that in a second but first of all with with the concept of dealing with people that you don't like again just like with the cohens what we're trying to learn to do as a practice is to look inward so rather than thinking. Okay here's so and so I don't like so and so how do I deal with them? Let's look inward for a moment. And say what does this really pointing to What is it that that I dislike? Where does the disliking come from? And I've been practicing this a little bit with with my kids. For example my son Reiko he is a picky eater and he has a lot of foods that he doesn't like and anytime he says. Oh I don't like this or that you know I try to remind him and say wait. Is it you? That doesn't like it or is it your taste buds. That don't like the food and that simple question helps him to understand. It's not him dislikes the food. It's it's how he is that prevents him from liking the food and he can't help that right if you All all of us have this. I just think of something that you don't like to eat and ask yourself that same question as it you. That doesn't like it or is it your taste buds. I did the Twenty three and me genetic tests that you can do that gives you not just your ancestry and genetic information but it gives you like your health traits your genetic health reports and something that stood out to me and there was there. There's a variation on one of the genes that you can have that will determine whether you are likely to enjoy bitter tastes Or not and this will d they use it as a marker to determine if you like Brussel sprouts or not and it's kind of fascinating to think that it's just a matter of DNA that could determine if somebody likes Brussels sprouts versus someone. Who doesn't which goes right back to the heart of what? I'm discussing here. Is it really me? That likes the Brussel sprouts or is it my genetic makeup that allows me to taste and enjoy that flavor when someone else will taste and all they get is a bitter flavor that they can't tolerate so they would think. I don't like Brussel sprouts while I'm thinking. I do like Brussel sprouts and neither one of us. It's it's the genetic marker in our DNA that allows us to experience. The world and Brussels sprouts the way we're experiencing them and I think that's a really profound understanding that you can take not just into how you taste food but into the very question of dealing with people that you don't like now this to me really alludes to one of the most profound..

"patriot community" Discussed on A Slob Comes Clean
"Okay. I know there's people like we'll but what about wiping down the cabinets. I'm like that's great. Great if you WANNA do that we're talking about the actual absolute total baseline to not have a house in chaos. Do the dishes everyday. Sometimes a natural extension of that is also wipe down the cabinets. But even if it's not do your dishes everyday K.. Sweeping the kitchen listen not about the crumbs. It's about being aware and dealing with the random stuff all over the floor in the kitchen. Okay and it's getting thing that stuff dealt with your kitchens going to look under control if your dishes are done and your floors are picked up and swept K.. And it's the checking the bathrooms for clutter. Because has guess what people say can use restrooms your restroom and you're you if you're anything like me you know how it feels to be like hold on just a minute. Okay and run in there and mix see what it looks like before they actually go in there. But if you're dealing with you know if your deal look checking them for clutter meaning making sure. There's not you know. Close all over the floor and junk all empty deodorant containers on the. What is it called? What is that called you guys? Empty Deiter con container bathroom counters. That's the word yes good podcast dating anyway but you don't making sure sure that the counters are at least straightened and not gross you know and the floors are picked up in that kind of those are baseline things do do you. Ideally want to also make sure everything is wiped down an sparkly. Absolutely you do and you could argue that. That's that's baseline as well but we're talking about the ultimate baseline okay. I mean it's one thing to walk in and go. Oh they didn't have a chance to actually shine up their bathroom house. Good to know that. Not Everybody's bathroom is absolutely perfect all the time. But there's difference between that and going. Oh my word. This bathroom is a total embarrassing disaster. Right okay so we're talking about baseline here except that baseline and then the five minute picket meaning. Things are picked up and put away if your dishes are done and your laundry is done. Your laundry is not part of the four daily habits. Because it's a weekly thing for me. I do it weekly laundry day but all of those things are not things that we go we have clean underwear underwear but we do go. Nobody has any clean underwear all right so it's accepting the fact that baseline is line. Stuff is not something anybody is going to congratulate you on. It's what a lot of people in today's Day's teenage call adulting. Okay and I'm not saying that as a as what people call adulting you guys yeah. I'm sorry I'm the one I had to figure all this out because because it was not natural to me and I wasn't doing it and a big part of me getting better me going through this disapprobation process was just ask the acceptance that this is how it is there really is not a better way. There's no better way it keep your kitchen kitchen under control then to just do the dishes everyday. There's not a better way. I am sorry there might be good good dish. Soap works really well for you. There might be whatever but there's not a better way than doing your dishes. Whatever that means all all right so that that's a huge part of it so we realized that applause only comes for the above and beyond think about an a work situation And a lot of you you guys who are listening our parents. Write your mom's and so you know you know when your kid wants to you get major credit for something that you're like that's just what you're supposed to do go above and beyond that you know at any time that you've had to get a group of kids to help rake the leaves in the yard. There are the kids who technically do everything they're supposed to do you and yes. It's helpful and it was worth it to make him do it. It wasn't fun. Whatever and then there's the one who goes above and beyond that's the one who gets the praise is the going above and beyond but realizing that doing the dishes unfortunately is not going above and beyond now as I sit here and say this? No I'm I'm proud of you for doing the dishes. Like I know how hard it is to do the dishes when that doesn't make sense to you and you don't feel like it should be that big of a deal but it is you feel like there's gotta be a better way when that hasn't been what you've done in your doubt this can work. I get it so I wanna say I am the one to tell you. I'm proud of you for doing the dishes and making yourself do them every single day. I am proud of you. But you can't expect every random person who walks into your house or even who lives in your house to be proud of you for doing the dishes every day okay. They're more likely to be proud over time. which is so so stinky right? I mean I want to be proud right away because then if you're proud right away that can be done and I at least get to know that you're proud but instead it's it's GonNa take time. Okay all right things that will take them time to under to actually notice they may notice that cooking or making their lunches or whatever is just less stressful than it used to be that something that can be like. Oh actually it's been even that much easier or maybe they don't notice until the third day when they go. Oh I actually looked around and and was inspired to start cooking again. I cooked three days in a row. Like you know it's that kind of thing or maybe it's a week in a row. We've been cooking at home this month or for two months for the last year. Whatever I'm not guaranteeing any kind of I'm trying to give you the realistic perspective to not expect praise as for things not expect credit for stuff? But I'm saying that that's the kind of thing that somebody's GonNa notice eventually more than going. Have you noticed. Have you noticed which I have done many times in my house Space to move around as you declutter things that is the number one thing that has helped my family actually make change. When it comes to clutter is an and some of them realize it? My I think my husband and my daughter daughter do my boys. Don't match don't necessarily notice but that ability to live more easily in your house than you used Too because you have more space to move around. That's the kind of thing that eventually they're going to appreciate that you've done okay. As opposed to look I moved everything off of the fireplace and shoved it in that corner over there. Doesn't the fireplace look good. Did Not that. They're not going to be like that's not the thing you get credit for. You get credit for actually improving life anyway being able to find things that's something if you consistently insistently go wait a minute. I am able to find things a lot easier than it used to be. Or Wow these last several years. I've been finding naming things a lot better than back when maybe you don't even notice it until you think about you know what five years ago before mom's started really decluttering. We used to never be able to find anything. That's kind of how it worked in our house and disasters happened left less often not natural disasters. You have no control over that but I'm talking about you know everything is shoved into everywhere and every anything that you're gonNA find that you know you have requires a huge throwing everything everywhere we're to get to it. The more you declared the less often those kinds of disasters are going to happen. That's the kind of thing that eventually people do it. Notice okay. That's where you get credit. Also on the opposite side of this be the positive notice her model positive noticing. When when somebody does something that you know was a real challenge for them to do notice it you know? Make sure that you're not the negative notice that you're not the one who they do something you go. Yeah that's good but did you notice this over here if you if you need to point that out because some a lot of times that is our job as a mom still praise the effort still praise what they did do. And then do that and think about because if you're listening to this podcast and you relate to what I'm talking about you've probably had the negative notice her but you don't want to be somebody else's negative notice. Her came out. So what are the. What are a couple of things to really focus on and we talked about Focusing on the very basics as your baseline not as a project okay like anything projects are above and beyond and that basic kind of stuff. And make sure you're following the visibility. Roll all right that visibility low visibility rule is everything okay with the visibility. Rule means that when you declutter always start in the most visible space meaning meaning the space that people would see when they come in your front door. I have loved hearing from people in the Patriot community about how much once they finally said. I'm going to follow the visibility ability. Rule they really started making huge progress in their homes. I love hearing that because that is the truth. Okay you start there and inspires you to keep decluttering. It's visible visible so it's more noticeable because you can actually see it because it's visible okay. So following the visibility roll instead of you know the top shelf of the master bedroom closet and then hoping that they're going to notice that or hey guys here step through all this junk income. Look at the top shelf and see what I did today. people are able more other people. When you're the one responsible for doing all this work other people are more able to ignore less visible spaces and be proud of you for the visible spaces than they are to ignore the visible? So it's really hard to walk through a cluttered room to go. Look at a uncluttered space. Ace shrimp saying but if you are walking through an uncluttered spate anyway Okay I hope if this was helpful and just no I completely understand you guys like I really do. I mean this is. This is my struggle as well so anyway all right I will talk to you guys. Next week don't forget I do have with my books. Available at a SLOB COMES CLEAN DOT com slash book and Go Join Patriot and join us over there. It's really fun all right bye..

"And we're gonna have a this week in survivor short little fun podcast movie. Thirty forty minutes going to put that out there, little experiment. Let's see how it goes. And then that's going to be something. They're going to add to the lineup. And then we got the wiggle room coming up, and we have not got a ton of wand offs here on week one. If people are not back in wand off mode yet or if there's going to be a hold downpour. Like when ream says, hey, I just hope it pours rain, maybe it will pour one offs between now and Monday when we record the wiggle room. You could send those one offs in wiggle room at broad has a website dot com. With Josh Wigley and it's coming up on Monday. And then we got a lot of great stuff coming up next week as well that I'm going to have guests with me on the recap. Then I have not had on recap with me in some time.
