"ramdas" Discussed on Hermit_Radio
"I love reading about Spiritual practices that have been done throughout time right now. Currently being a book by Ramdas called Grist for the mill. And it's been such A. Such a I opening. Document, because Ramdas explains some of the very same things, so I'm explaining, but he explains them such beautiful way so I really encourage you. If you've never heard of Ramdas, check them out. read some of his books. They're they're. They're wonderful. But he describes. Your emotions as almost being like channels that you tune into like a radio. and. Happiness has its own frequency. Anger has its own frequency sadness as its on frequency. And you know depending on the things that you do. It affects that all the time. Even the music you listen to. So something to keep in mind is when you're doing these activities. All activities rather and listening to music. See how it makes you feel. Notice how a certain song makes. You feel because we all know this song that gets us. Go on makes us happy and this and that and we also know about songs. Make US sad. Pay attention to that. How that's affecting your body? And Even. Those things apply a sense of neutrality. Just because something sad happens to. You doesn't mean you have to be in. In such pain in such. Despair that it takes you down for weeks months at a time. When you start to view things from a neutral standpoint. It makes it makes it not so brutal now some things like I said you should feel sad, and you should feel despair from it, and it's part of the healing process. It's part of the cycle. So don't ever forget that. You know when appropriate to do that and allow yourself to have that feeling. You should never beat yourself up over how you feel or when you're having. Something happened in your life. Treat? Treat your mind, said your heart in your body like a child. Nurture it like baby. Hold it. Take care of it. Nurture. It's love it. And, if you do that, you will notice changing your life in. You'll see you'll feel better. You'll have a new way to look at life, and that's really all of what I'm trying to say right now. All the PODCASTS that I've done. This is really what it comes down to what I'm trying to say is. It's never been about trying to just be happy all the time. I feel like for most people when they start. Start looking into spirituality. It's they're trying to find a way to be happy all the time. That's how it was for me. And what have come to realize is that you can't be happy all the time. You a tune yourself to a certain state of mind often. But there will be things that will make you sad. There will be things that are going to bring you down and you know it could be right now. This has been pretty depressing couple of months for most people I would assume. But there's life tunnel. There's a cycle. What once was bad will once again be good. And so. I guess just remember that. And when you go through life, you shouldn't have expectation of trying to be happy all the time. Even billionaires have everything are still sat sometimes. So let it be a tool. Let let it guide you in how you need to make improvements in your life. I had a conversation with some people recently about what is the meaning of life and. Why why are we here? What is happening? And I explained my point of view. I felt pretty. Pretty positively pretty beautifully in my opinion but. I could tell that. Some other people standpoints were very different from mine, and they were not. They were not on. The same level. Is what I was trying to say and. You know my old self I found myself getting caught up in my old self and thinking I, don't I don't agree with what they're saying. either. And then again the neutrality came in. I told myself well. Guess what you don't have to believe what they believe. In your opinion, it's how you feel. And it was okay, and I ended allowed me to have a conversation with somebody else about something very very taboo in my opinion, and we could talk about it and we were cordial with each other. And it made me think of like ancient Roman times when? Plato Aristotle would have these conversations and You know really get deep into thinking about the distance of humans in. Why are we all here? I think we should be having that conversation. I think it's time now to have that conversation. Because, it has no matter what it is. No matter what the answer is whether or not will actually find. It's all. Life is here for us in front of US everything in front of us. It's at our disposal, so we should take care of it for one a to God. We should enjoy it. We should enjoy life. We should be doing things that make us happy. And more than ever the last few weeks I've been feeling like I don't want to just live my life to work and make money and eat and sleep and die. That's not who I WANNA BE I. WanNa. Experience I wanted to see things I. Want to see change people, and not only do. I want to see it. I WANNA be a part of it, I. I want to help. Make that happen our help. People who hurt I. WanNa help people that just need somebody to talk to into. Get them through a hard time, or they're chasing spiritual path and want to know more about it, because there is a endless amount of knowledge out there, you can never stop learning, and there's so many good books and so many good. Lectures that talk about this kind of stuff and. That's what I'm bringing to. You is what I'm learning in the experience. I'm having I WANNA. Bring that to you and I want to share that with you..
Daniel Goleman: The Mind and Meditation
"I have the pleasure of speaking with Daniel Goldman to claim psychologist and author of several books including the international bestseller emotional intelligence. Why Can Madam Molden? Iq Daniel has written extensively on the connections between human psychology science and contemplative practice and their practical applications in both leadership and in everyday life in this conversation. Daniel talks about his early years at Harvard where he earned his PhD in psychology and how encounters with great teachers such as Ramdas took Kunar remedy and many others would pave the way for his research on meditation and Non Western theories of mind unlike he studies in psychology which largely focused on the content of the mind. By-pass enough focused on the process. Which was tremendously exciting Daniel. He then discusses how mindfulness and meditation topics not will receive. Graduate advises have evolved within the United States and within American culture most profoundly. Daniel discusses his most recent work on climate change. He off is extraordinarily astute insights on how the human mind grapples with the difference between imminent verses symbolic threats and how these translates into the world of capital consumerism and personal responsibility he also shares his thoughts on how Donald Practitioners My contrbute to these calls. Especially I so much enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do too so I thought to start with awesome you so. You're a graduate student at Harvard and went to. India is that is that rushing seventy might travelling companions on the trip. Were someone known as Jeff. Cable? Who's called Krishna? Dos The devotional singer. Another friend was released for DOS. Who just lose writing books with Rhonda's because I had met Ramdas quite by accident cosmic what you would say tender auspicious coincidence or something but My Freshman Freshman Trish during graduate school. I was writing a paper suicide over the Christmas. Oh holiday and I get a knock on the door of my apartment in Cambridge in. It's a woman why never seen before. And she had run into a friend of mine who had been in a communal house in Berkeley. Who's going around the world? And he had sent a letter to me that she was the currier four and she had been in a monastery in Nepal where she met a an American. A guy named Bongolan not rundown. Yes and basically she. I have two things to do here. One is delivered this letter to you. The second is to visit this guy. The BAGUA DOS it. I really shouldn't need and the third was to go to my sister's wedding but she backed out and so that was why she came to America. So I said well I'll take you to meet this person you know. Your Christmas is writing on suicide. We ended up driving up to New Hampshire in there in this farm house. Luxuriance funhouse in a small room. Upstairs was this guy all white along there but no Julia was and he had all these weird pictures on the wall turned out to be Hindu deities and we watching remit and nobody said anything. I never been in a social situation where nobody said anything but I went along with it. And then after a while he spoke and it turned out he was Richard Alpert now. Rhonda's just come back from India and it turned out also that he had been fired from the program at Harvard that I was enrolled in a graduate student. Also I was on the graduates to school colloquium committee which meant I could invite him to come back and speak. Nice which I which was the first time he'd been back to Harvard since he was fired. And so you know he was on fire. He was really full of shocked as they say just back from India and he started. He came give a lecture started. Seven ended it too and to bribe janitor lettuce sticky two. Am to work. And I began to go to a kind of a summer camp that he was running his father's place in the Hampshire where I visited him. This was in the summer and after two rounds I found out that might fill ship to harbored included. A traveling challenge ship nice and I had a wonderful mentor at Harvard David McClellan who actually had hired fired leary and so what did he think about your little excursions to bomb. While he was a devout quaker and he was very interested in meditation so it seems glad that I was getting into this because none of it all is other graduate students. Were like all its study the need to achieve from the you know also you riding on suicide just WanNa go back to that in. What was was there any in that compelled you to write. Oh I had been at a teaching assistant in a course on death and dying talk. Guinan and I had gotten access to about several hundred suicide notes for Bailey Corner. Yeah and you know it's just a you know you study stuff in doubt. I mean I wasn't suicidal. But yet you had interesting death and dying or was that interested. Dr. Not like a personal interest but kind of academic academic India okay and so I should give it back on. My father was professor humanities and my mother was a social worker and I think I got a a kind of implicit value system. It was a very ecumenical. He taught a course called autobiography of civilization which was world literature so it a very lot instead of Sanskrit actually version Among other languages his best friend was the guy who founded the Asian Studies Department at Berkeley? No so I had this kind of view of the world which was larger than just Western yesterday so I was very interested in going to India but I found could In graduate school because Ron dos made me think oh I'd love to meet his guru yet girly Bob Him. You Know No. I'd never met anyone like him of the KARMAPA sixteenth city. Zuma Sitter Sixteenth Mama's yeah and They meant didn't see each other enough. Say met but Lama nor law whose retreat master for College Berries who was close to carmont stayed within croly Baba for two years and I think maybe he told them I never got the story of how he knew anything again. But anyway and Because this was nineteen seventy s very early. A lot of the wonderful lauman's the very shall we say far advanced llamas on the path from Tibet were still alive and Christopher Dawson and I met coup Air Fiche who is very humble. Wonderful being reviewed seem around dawn. You know mumbling all money. I when I saw going around the Stupa and people come and see him day and night and he was always happy to see. Whoever came which I contrasted with my professors at Harvard were world famous psychologist. You could see them like two to three on Tuesday office hours so anyway. Long Story Short coup. Who was wonderful and I didn't know till decades later with he was the teacher of the Dalai Lama on Compassion Chari out the time. You would certainly never say so. He had been offered the kind of the presidential suite with top sweet. And the monastery top floor didn't want he stayed in a very small room had little wooden bed. That was it was very simple. It beautiful way so I met him and kind of made it my business to look around I. I ended up studying the Pasta with Joseph Goldstein. Who was in residence of the Burmese? Mahara I think. Joseph was little horrified that other Westerners were showing up and Manindra had invited his friend going Kaji to give up his second course for Westerners and I went back and gave a talk at the conference on Yoga and Therapy Deli and told people there that there was going to be sub ten day retreat and when the people audience was named Sharon Salzberg cow and so she came to book Guy Learn how to meditate the rest is history was charged with Joseph of course so we go way way back to nineteen seventy really
Searching for Treatments
"First let's talk about how our government officials are describing a drug called chloroquine. This has been something that's been around for many years. Been phenomenon strong powerful drug for malaria. But we think it might work on. This chloroquine is used to treat malaria and has been around for decades but it has not been approved as a treatment for the corona virus. Here's C. N. N.'s medical analysts and infectious disease specialist. Dr Selene Gander. This is not a slam dunk. This is early promising research. But that doesn't mean this is GonNa work. The president also tweeted over the weekend. That a related drug hydroxy chloroquine in combination with an antibiotic commonly known as Z pack. Could become game changers. This is largely based on a small study in France that excluded some people who either left the hospital stopped taking the drug due to side effects or got worse including one person who died. We still don't have enough evidence that these drugs are effective in humans. That's why in some states. They are beginning to experiment. Hydroxy chloroquine which the president speaks about his optimistic about and we hope for optimistic results. Also were actually starting back today. That's New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. He recently announced that the state had procured thousands of doses of chloroquine hydroxy chloroquine and would begin trials. Starting Tuesday the state will begin testing another experimental treatment using the plasma of people who have recovered. It's called convalescent. Serum what it does is it takes the plasma from a person who has been infected with the virus processes the plasma and injects the antibodies into a person who is sick. The other drug name being floated around is an antiviral called. Ramda's Aveer it's already been tested on adults diagnosed with the krona virus in the United States and China director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Dr Robert Redfield discuss trimmed reservoir in congressional testimony earlier this month. We're GONNA know probably by April whether that drug works or not and that's important because that's a drug that can save lives if it works. Gilead Sciences which manufacturers Davir is pulling back on emergency requests for the drug due to overwhelming demand. The company is instead focusing. Its efforts on giving out the drug in clinical trials hoping to prove its effectiveness against Kovic. Nineteen I want to reiterate that we don't know how effective any of these treatments will be while a number of patients have already received drugs like chloroquine and Rim desert. It's too early to know how much of an impact the drugs actually had. That's why doctors are conducting studies in the United States China. And all over the world to better understand what happens when you give these drugs to a covert patient. Getting the results could take months. And in the meantime we have to be careful about creating false hope. A man in Arizona has died. After ingesting. Chloroquine phosphate believing that it would prevent him from contracting virus. Banner Health a company that operates acute care. Hospitals released a statement on Monday confirming that a man in Arizona had died. After taking a form of chloroquine used to clean aquariums. His wife is currently in critical care. Nbc News spoke to the wife who said they learned of the drugs connection to corona virus during a news conference on TV in Nigeria. Health officials issued a warning about chloroquine saying three people overdosed on the drug after hearing it described as a possible treatment. I can't stress enough. How vital it is that you don't use or consume anything unless specifically recommended by your doctor. You are likely to soon hear other drug names mentioned as well Nevin Creggan. A senior investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Data Science and Biotechnology in San Francisco worked on a study published last weekend that identified sixty nine existing drugs that could be tested against the corona virus in total. We identified three hundred thirty two proteins talking to or connected to the corner viral proteins and we identified a sixty nine different drugs and compounds that are known to target at least one of these three hundred thirty two a proteins and this corresponds to twenty seven different. Fda approved drugs and the remaining are in clinical or preclinical. Trials Croghan said testing out drugs. That are already. Fda approved could drastically speed up the process of finding a treatment that is safe and effective for humans. And then there's the prospect of a vaccine experts. Say One wouldn't be ready this year. Vaccine Trials take months or years in order to be proven safe and effective for humans and there are multiple stages of those trials but Grogan is optimistic that the global response from scientists now will set a precedent for getting to a solution faster in the future for me. I would argue. That will be seen as a new carradine of how to do science. And I hope we're setting up an infrastructure here that could be beneficial not just for covert nineteen but for the future for covert twenty two Kobe. Twenty four or whatever virus comes online over the next several years and they will be coming our best protection for now social distancing washing our hands looking out for ourselves and our loved ones trying to help out wherever we can and behaving like we might have the virus.
"ramdas" Discussed on Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu
"Stuff all the time stamp of approval way behind the stuff go get it right now enjoy and legendary talk to me about that. What is an environment that we should be cultivating so we should be getting out and walking? got that one. I'm looking at a distance. That's good what what else else hang hang. What does that mean literally hang? Yeah Super Simple man like all the simple stuff is the most effective and the book recommended a minute and half total each day get a little pull up bar thirty bucks on Amazon. Or whatever gets you will get you. There were a find a tree branch even better and literally. Just reach up. You can play with altering contraction more the index finger pinky. Kind of make it more dynamic if you want but just that action of getting arms overhead and starting to decompress that shoulder shoulder girdle. You're starting to open up the ribs. Open up the lungs open up the heart our viscera organs. They're not just these isolated bags inside of a vacuum. They functioned based off your movement. And you know so we think of own going to do a liver cleanse and I'm going to like change my physiology through what I put into my face. Meanwhile we very rarely think about like what about getting in and like actually coming in contact with these places but just taking a walk. You're you can think of this visceral system kind of like a rag. And you're twisting that rag out if you have a bunch of gunk in that rag in order to get the gunk out. You go activating your feet. All that tissue and your your lower body as a nice foot massage but it stimulates your brain by going up in different contours. Your teaching more sophistication in every joint through your body so have you slack lining no okay. Well Elsa have you ever seen someone tries to fucking amazing all right so what a person is starting to slack line for the first time. They'll step their foot put onto the line and typically the first reactions are easy. You know what's happening. There's they don't have any sophistication. Then they're nervous system in and around that hip and the ankle and what happens. is you start to cultivate. That sophistication a little bit through just repetition spending more time in in that in stable environment all of a sudden you can. We can calm down and you can press your foot down the line stand up you can follow your breath and you. You know what we're doing in from movement perspective in the world is because we're taking away any potential for adaptation. We're making ourselves kind. Have almost like more of a dangerous body to operate the year notion of all these micro opportunities. I think is really really interesting and I want to walk people through just since I met you which is now maybe forty minutes ago. You showed up at the House without your shirt when I greet you. You're laying on the floor four and then you wanted to do yoga before we started. I said No. You know what that means and then took off your shoes to sit. Sit Down so it's like you. Legit are taking all of these micro opportunities. I haven't seen you hang yet but I'll assume that you probably do take those opportunities as well so those are four things what are some other MICR. -tunities that we are you getting up and down off the floor like a bunch of times throughout the day I mean. Think a person lives in a more like tribal environmental mentor. hunter-gatherer more like a natural setting Naturally their body is going to go through these rangers emotions. If you've spent any time in like third world countries it was just kind of funny term. The concept of exercise is very foreign. You know somebody wearing a bunch of like a neon vest and like a sun protective cap thing and they got their puffy sneakers is on and they're like exercising down the street people are like what the hell is going on like. What planet are they from? You know because they're investing themselves in all of those opportunities for adaptation just the way they live their life So yeah I wrote the almost the whole book from either either this position like I'm Kinda cosmetic physician now or a lot of it was. I was laying on my belly and put a pillow underneath my hips. So I'm not putting too much extension extension into my lower back. So what is that. Oh that's the inverse of what I spent most of my life as a high school middle school where. I'm trying to tell the teachers that I don't give a shit shit. I'm trying to let people know that I'm very cool. You know so I kind of walk around like this. You know what that is is for me. It's protecting myself because if I fail I was never even trying in the first place you know so I start to put on that posture of just so you know guys. I don't actually care about any of this right now. But then eventually that kind of disinclined disinclined me or callous myself from allowing people in I've started off pastorally in this position of letting you know that I don't really care about this experience or you or anything because actually don't WanNa be hurt by you because I have fear of abandonment and then eventually that posture sticks onto me and it affects the way that I communicate with people in my daily early life and then I start to go into this assaulted. See actually think this rabbit holes really interesting so talk to me about that. Talk to me a little bit about what happened and with your dad and how your life is a reaction to where you started. You said that you had a pretty bright line at eighteen. That sent you on a whole new path. Yeah Yeah I had had a really miraculous experience of my dad becoming really addicted to drugs cracks specifically around when I was sixteen sixteen and he ended up. I mean it was really bad. He was like essentially on the very us hanging onto into life by like a hair. You know like the fact that he was like I would literally rehearses death every day. Probably I like a strange strange number of times. Eighty two more than that time just like going through like bracing like okay like pretty sure this is it. You know somebody come home and he's going to be. You know overdosed rumor. Well he's GonNa I'M GONNA get a call. This is GonNa be gone but the aftermath of that is one changing my my posture. Changing my emotions. I kind of went through like it's called Antonia which is essentially like feeling numb to the world like no. I don't feel happy I don't feel sad. Everything's just this kind of gray. And so getting to experience that and then seeing the byproduct was I went into hiding in the form of bodybuilding. No so I went I and and you know I think you can go like multiple directions with things like that. When you're in kind of a numb place you can go off and maybe start hurting other people or you can go off and hurt yourself or maybe you start during the route that I did and just packing muscle and kind of showing people that I'm strong and I'm in control? You know my home environment at the time felt like it was out of control control so then I go into excessive control and support my body you know and then eventually that leads to the body snapping you know and so that turned into various various different injuries and chronic pain and stress and anxiety. And all that you know it's like a building you up or in a high rise you can feel the building and kind of swaying a little bit and if you don't know about architecture you're like Oh my God this is none okay. You're like no no like the swaying swaying like. That's what keeps US ally. That's what keeps US safe. You know so because it came from a place of feeling like oh I'm out of control. I go into hyper control which eventually goes into a stiff building which eventually can translate into like snapping. And that's the thing that's where it gets really kinda sneaky as I was applauded. And that's you we'd get applauded for getting a fancier car for getting more muscles for getting fancy clothes getting a fancier watch those are the things that people feel like. Wow you're really really doing great job man. You know you're like okay. I need to do more of that. You know but it's it's not so often that we get applauded for like the inner parts because people don't really see that Ramdas Ramdas thing where you said you can't teach what you know you can only teach what you are you know and so the person that is living their life. They're living their words living their work. There that's what they're teaching. What you are about? The whole time is how you actually live your life. Nobody's looking around so that's more interested in that now. Yeah that we share so if hanging walking barefoot foot Really testing yourself from different angles and doing natural things like squatting down and not losing sight of that. If that's the the the alignment method for the body. What's the align method for the mind? Yeah all that is is for the mind but then then I also do value stillness stillness or something different. Both the a different part. I think that will starting off just meditation. I think Every time those thoughts come in to control US shake us up. We we say okay cool. That's good you know it's totally fine. And then we come back to that concentration point you know and then comes through tricks up to that concentration point the same thing how you can practice compassion Ashen a compassionate person isn't just a person that has like. Oh Wow they're great guys like no they they worked. You know if you're compatible. If you're a loving person person that makes people feel welcome. That's something that you cultivated like. You actually intentionally made that thing you know. And so the same thing I think gaining some semblance Amblin of connection or control or relationship would be at a better word with your thoughts. I think stillness in the form of meditation. I think is like a great starting point. That's been in one of the most profound tools that I've had in my life. What kind of meditation do you do? The posner is is the one that I've I've studied the most so I did like a pasta days. Silent It's focusing on the breath to start Through the nose. Then you have the attention to start to focus on other other parts throughout your body so then the pasta. Meditation is bringing awareness into the top of your head and the side. Your face your ears and your nose and your neck and your nipples nipples and you're like all the way down through It's almost like you're going through and starting to heal those different parts of yourself..
Odd Jobs: Who's telling the truth?
"Deborah and Lisa will each have a minute and change to tell their stories before the timer goes off we flipped a coin and Sort of blocked everyone's view and picked it up before any of US could see it and he swore where it was headed up. Lisa has elected to go second Debra. Are you ready to go. I bring it on our topic. This week is odd odd jobs. So listen carefully teagan and Bennett Deborah. Your timer will begin now. Did you ever wonder about how people woke themselves up. Before the mass production of alarm clocks well and during the industrial revolution. It was the job of a knocker upper to rise in the very very early morning and go around town waking people up at the time that they wanted to get up. Some knocker upper woke up as many as eighty or ninety clients a day so these knocker uppers throughout history were very clever. They came came up with very inventive ways around problems. That would naturally come up in their jobs for example when the practice I came him about knocker uppers would knock loudly on people's front doors. That's where they got the name from but they soon realized that neighbors could also hear these loud knocks Knox and get a free wakeup call out of it so knocker operas fashion sticks with metal wires wrapped around the end and woke up clients individually by tapping being at their windows. If you lived on the second floor not a problem. You're not per upper. Would just get a longer stick and if you lived on the third floor. Well I'm not sure but there was at least one other method knocker uppers used to wake up people a key shooter. That's right people would actually pay for the privilege. Fledge of having someone wake them up by shooting. Dry Peas out of tune at their houses presumably. Those who did always remembered to lead their windows closed in time. Well done debra okay. Now it's leases. Turn to tell us about an odd job Bob of his own Lisa. You're ready do I tell the truth or you tell the story again and we'll find out yes okay and it should be about like odd jobs. There's something I have a feeling you'll figure it out. Okay I got it. The timer will begin now. Okay Bennett antiquing. Juno those guards outside of Buckingham in Palestine England like the ones with the head coach and the tall funding hats and they stand completely motionless and silent. Even if you shout right in their face and you're not They're called the Queen's guard and they're not just there as the show for towards they're actually trained soldiers at least east they usually but during the economic recession of nineteen sixty one. A labor dispute with the Queen's guard ended with Queen Elizabeth Firing all but twelve of the soldiers and replacing them with some random dude off the street. Who would accept the queen's low wages not cool queen none of these substitutes actually knew what they were doing? They're only there to make it look. The Queen had adequate protection. Now this fake security force was secretly referred to as the Queen's toy soldiers the twelve original guards who remained were given the task of training the toy soldiers but it quickly proved to be a wild goose jays which is bad some of the new recruits. Were too old to actually do any other work and nearly all of them found it too hard to stand still. Oh for that long amount of time on one hot July morning that year one of the guards tired from standing decided to sit down on the ground legs folded while still L. on active duty. A few of the toy soldiers followed his lead thinking they were supposed to be sitting down and eventually the entire force commanders included. We're sitting sending parental style on the ground in front of the palaces east entrance they remain that way until the changing of the guard that afternoon. Original photograph of this strange occurrence is currently early on display in London's British Museum which is in London and time. Thank you Lisa nicely done. Okay Bennett and Teagan. It is decision time now. We're going to decide WHO's story works is at Lisa's tale of the queen's toy soldiers and air sats protection when the Buckingham Palace guards were fired over labor dispute or is it. Deborah's tale will the knocker industrial revolution. Who would go around in the early hours of the morning shooting peas windows and waking people up so what do you think do you think the second one? But I'm not trusting lease after he would do anything to Cheat Mall Wong on. Maybe I would the one thing I would do would not. I would be good so take then. I don't really know but we story is very very believable. Evil what makes Lisa story believable because there are our status stand there usually true but in my story there are people who are asleep and there are many people as a matter of fact all people who sleep. Sorry Lisa just now Bennett. Give give me three reasons. Why divorce story is going to be the true one? No I wasn't saying that I was. I think what it was actually Debra. Do you think that I have the true story or the fake story. Actually you know what I think that you have the fake story. You think I have the fake story. Why do you think either fake story because nobody sleeps well? It would be a hard job and I've never really heard any history of felt that ever. I think I'm going to have to go with Lisa before you do that. I have one more question for debt. You said it was during the something Ramdas Revolution. That's at a time when lots of machines and factories were being produced so what time line is approximately. Where in the years is that go late? Eighteen hundreds fours in the late eighteen. I I don't believe that. Ah such thing as third. I think we're just like for like so many people just like three floors that when you sleep on or maybe they were in like an apartment building where there are no Davos. Don't try and make sure seem more real do do you think what do you think. I think that Lisa's story was true. Give me three reason. It just sounded realistic. Hosted the way that Lisa meted robots make everything sound realists. Have you heard this is. He's very dumb. Okay hold on Alexis. My ex-girlfriend we don't talk anymore. Yeah all right guys. We're here to pick apart. Lisa's dating history story. Come on very traumatized you just go with Lisa's. Even though I do not believe if I disagree. Let's go with Lisa's we lease. This is true. I believe that this is true. Yes and you believe that I I told you a lie. I told you fake story okay. Well we'll the real honest truth teller today.

"Hi Literature it's Lisa. Here it is a privilege to do this meditation with you today Eh. A little while back a combination of body meditations and therapy began excavating years of programming and trauma. Offer me and like a floodgate opening fear. Came barreling out. I had never thought of myself as a fearful person but now that I was trying to move forward I could clearly see how fear navigated so many of my steps sometimes. It felt like too much. I I wanted to quit all the reasons why should be afraid. We're relentless whispering to me. Every time I took a step in the direction of my own heart sometimes fear had a specific face but other times I noticed. All that was happening was fear of the fear of the fear so I began to sit with fear I let it sit in front of me and see it for what it is so in the city it's face began to change not with force but with just noticing seeing it for what it was Ramdas says. Fear is the result of getting stuck in the middle the result of ignorance. I came across a passage. That has helped me tremendously. It's from a man named Emmanuel. I'll read the passage three times and I invite you to to find a comfortable position. You can close your eyes.

Kovacs was one of the doctors at the Queen Victoria Hospital remember I said they were millionaires. That's important to this story but back then Gab Kovacs had no idea just way she was dressed in my she spoke Mississippi very well off ever probably struggling to spend the money Florida's squad expensive to fly back in the ninety ninety eight I relatively much more than what they are now and with quite a big deal to come in have a here and leave over here we felt sorry for him and my secretary always suggest to be discounted faithfulness Israel's who've had no idea that they were hard wealthy he remembers Elsa being very dramatic and difficult to deal with but she had good reason to be very hollies triangle they had a terrible history. I guess you've gone through this beforehand and they've pretty stressed to fly over here they had one child who they'd lost done with he was murdered I think we're next Senate confirmed the de tough and rather really came to have another child and if they're only hype that's why they came to throw you both Mario and L. Surreal had children with previous partners but they'd tragedy else's ten year old daughter had only recently died she'd been playing with a gun and it went off killing her that is absolutely horrific so that maintains that there was so much emotion entangled with this whole process that's right there was but the process started well three Brioche created for the couple using else's eggs and donor sperm so they had three chances of success Yup and lied about eleven o'clock midnight on our set evening and she was very dramatic everything was lots of drama so she had her ex collected to a street is beforehand fertilize and they would have developed and we would have chosen the best probably wanting to US Ramdas back which would then be tempted to be frozen suggesting the Million Dollar Question He Elsa Riaz Has three embryos frozen did she get pregnant no unfortunately she didn't Elsa miscarried the first embryo but then rather than try again straight away the reassess headed to Chile in nineteen ninety-three some reports say they adopted a baby there but then the ultimate tragedy flying back to California in crashed Elsa and Mario both died and what they left behind was a massive estate valued at eight million dollars and of course there too remaining embryos the news reached Australia the next year in nineteen eighty four and that's when all hell broke loose in Nineteen eighty-one childless Californian elsewhere and Mario reels came to Milton's Queen Victoria Hospital to join the Ivy if Creole's couple failed in their first attempt to have a child and left Australia leaving behind the two embryos for a second attempt at a later date before the couple could try again they were killed in a plane crash in Chile two frozen embryos in the fridge over nobody knows who is the move who's responsible no one really knew what to do with the Riaz embryos in the early days of Dr Deb Kovacs more first of all we didn't have further ambrose whatever Awadh and secondly we didn't ever anticipate the fact that patients moths all built for young people they're all infertility H it didn't really occur to some of the talk in the early days we had a very simple consent form with no different heading consent form for an operation but soon after that we included consent foam which d the options and the raiders case Jane triggered bid consent Foams but what you found out is that it also unleash these Almighty public debate about the Status frozen embryos and the ethics of obvious I mean this was hard stuff where embryos groups of cells all they something more he is one of the rights for we need a legal guardian who has the interests of these his chew babies at hat and he is the Anglican Church of you is that I've regarded as a positive gift from God that is there is a tremendous new opportunities available in this new technology the Riaz case also demanded lawmakers onto the question when does human life begin and if an embryo was considered to be a person should enjoy the same legal rights as a child but I can two frozen embryos really be as to a

And then James corden, then you get into both of those things. Yes. Thank you. I've always hated museums. The worst part is when you hate museums. You have to pretend you love museums because you don't wanna look stupid or unsophisticated for hating museums. So for decades whenever someone asked me if I wanted to go to the museum, I would have to pretend to be all excited. When in fact, I only cared that people thought I was the kind of guy who goes to museums. If I ever did go, I would forget to take off the little circle admission pin for weeks, so people would notice it conspicuously still class from my book bag. So I could be like, oh this I was at the museum. And I got it. Whatever it is. You're supposed to get. I got it. I was quiet. I sketched. I got to know myself. But that's not what I was doing at the museum. I wasn't looking at a painting to appreciate it. I was staring at it trying to figure out how long was appropriate to look at it. So when I walked away the other people in the room weren't like, well that guy didn't get it at all. So I would look at it and make my museum face which is a face that suggests I'm deeply analyzing color choices and brushstrokes, but really in my head. I just be singing her Cheerios having for breakfast lunch. You decide and that's not even real jingle. I didn't care about the art. And I certainly wasn't feeling anything. I was just completing a mental checklist searching from room to room looking for the name brands. You know, the good ones the Picassos and the Monets the ones people would ask me if I'd seen. I'd find them a crowd of people already circled around gazing and a wave of relief would hit me. Now, I've been to the museum I've seen what I'm supposed to see. Now, I can go right after I buy magnetic representations of these paintings to prove I wasted my day here. Ramdas taught me that the thing that was keeping me from enjoying museums was the same thing that was keeping me from living in the moment and feeling divine connection. It was all in my head instead of enjoying a piece of art for what it meant to me or for what it made me feel. I was wasting my time wondering what it was supposed to mean. Careful not to waste too much time. Looking at it for fear that a better more famous more meaningful painting was waiting for me in the next room. Whatever it was. I thought I was looking for. It was always somewhere else hiding allusive somewhere around the next bend. It was never simply here. And neither was I in. India Ramdas had learned a method around such endless mind robbery. Maharaja would repeat the Hindu name of God rom out loud over and over most of the day, the other yogis and Saudis had mantras that they too would keep on a loop in their heads at all times turns out repeating mantra-like. This. One of the methods for quieting the mind to allow himself to be fully immersed in the here. And now. I had heard of meditation..

Funny. You know, poetic and deep and speaking to these things that are going on. Now, we talked about technology. We talked about, you know, the suicides going on and stuff, and I felt like it brought a sense of relevancy to his work. Now, he's eighty eight when this is going to becoming fully out, and we don't have a lot of wisdom in our culture. We pushed that aside in American culture, particularly especially if it's old, but when you hear it you hear the age, and you and I think what resonates with people, especially if you don't even know what they're listening to it is here, wisdom and wins them in they lean into that. And they're like who is this. Why is this touching me? And I wanna know more. And then they go down the rabbit holes gray. Tell me what your philosophy of. Music and magic like. No. I mean, like, I know that there's a saying that you know, you depending on the person. No, one person can say be kind to everyone. And it means nothing. In fact, it can actually feel like they slapped you or something it can feel like they're judging you or some shit you need to be kind. Then another person can say be kinda everyone as I've heard people like choke him Trump around us. And it's for some reason, it's it. It passes whatever the spiritual blood brain barrier is that keeps us from like taking in wisdom seeds. Do you think that that whatever that may be that energetic thing that is beneath the language or in the language or I don't know? Yeah. Do you think that can get picked up by microphones and transmitted through speakers? I do some people I think like purists about. Yeah. The music has to come from the bowl versus a recorded to bed and bowl. But the thing about language, right? Like all of this is just mouth sounds that were producing with these vocal cords it. Sound music is sound it's encoded into the big bang. Right. That's how the universe stars a sound. That's how we even in the western science says which is low. I love that chance. Mckenna lines. I just give us one miracle, and we can run with it. We're cool you need one miracle that everything came out of nothing for no reason and exploded. And we we can we can have all your there. So we need to be cool. Yeah. But it it is. And it's awesome. The bible. God spoke sa-. I ain't got spoke. And then everything began. So I think it's all around us.

Do you ever just wanna go like what's the point? It isn't for me. Now, not that. I don't have especially in this time with the pedophilia crisis. You'd bouts of almost depression when we could miss the point so much. Yeah. But because I'm protected in the subgroup of the Franciscans, and I'm safe. I really. The people of the Franciscans more than they love the bishops and the bishops know that and we have a kind of credibility that even they don't have. So I'm writing on those coat-tails grace of God.

You know, the word. In fact, it's funny you'd you'd mentioned that three of the staff are over meeting in a little Hermitage. We have behind our visitor center. And they're they're using the word brand. I know that really sounds dangerous. Yeah. But they're discussing what will be our remaining brand when Richard passes, and they wanna make sure that it's solid that it isn't depending upon a personality because it's going to die otherwise right now, the CAC is doing wonderfully, but they're worried rightfully so do we have a message that outlasts, Richard? And that's my hope and that's their desire right now. This is the same thing with Ramdas who's in his mid eighties or late eighties that when he passes people because I go to retreat every year, and we're like are we going to keep going to this like does it exist without him because just him being there is a really big thrill, and there's a vibration. But then we're like I can see them having the same question. Like, how do we keep this going? And do they have an answer? Do you have a protege will? No, there, isn't it doesn't seem that person will appear a person's we have a faculty of three and the the phrase we use is a Christian. Contemporary tradition, which is you know, not so well known. Yeah. It's a subset of of Christianity. Even though I'm convinced it's Christianity at its most profound mystical level. Yeah. So that's what we're trying to. Preserve? And and I hope this book the universal Christ is going to contribute to that. I've I've noticed that. Like, the word Franciscan mystical is. Yes, it word. Yeah. It was having this is named dropping.

"That's my experience. Anyway, when I'm working with younger people. So I'm always learning from them. And I hope they're learning something from me. So that's the first thing that L during has not to do isn't just about getting older. But also Ramdas a friend of mine, you know, of great meditation grade teacher remarkable guy, you know, he wrote a book some years ago called still here after his be now books, and it was about just that aging. And I was at his house when they were having breakfast. He said, so what did you think of that book Franken, I said, you want the truth? And he said, yeah, I said it was okay. See the Dami too. He said I wrote it in my seventies. What did I know about aging in my seventies? Should now. I'm eighty six I understand something about aging. So I think the sometimes we. Maybe prematurely dry, be wise around our around this stuff. I think the grow gracefully is to mature into the fullness of our life. Yeah. And into the fullness of our acceptance, and that might include disability might include confusion. Mine include the losses the come with aging too. Not just our own physical mental losses. But the losses of those are due to us. I think when we can embrace all of that. Then I think we are aging gracefully. I I like I like all that especially the last one. But which are not talking about is. I is far as I understand it is some sort of resignation around look this this bodies impermanent. So I'm not gonna take care of it. Now, that's nonsense. You know, this body is important, and it's my vehicle for knowing the world. It's my sensing tool to know the world, I wanna take good care of it as I possibly can. Because it's what allows me to interact with the world to know the world to be fully engaged in my relationships. I think that's a misunderstanding of I think Buddhism has had a misunderstanding of that that we shouldn't care for the body. The body is extremely important. And I love my body. You know? After my heart attacks. It was hard. It was humbling to have a heart attack. I was depressed. I was dependent on others I- weak..

In all its many forms from the most, you know, dark scary seemingly nihilistic art to just basic like nice dark cynical comedy to whatever. It is the consumption of these things is is your visit human, right? And it's should be done. It's wonderful. If that's what you're drawn to. To me. The problem is that you could start thinking that there's a way to be other than the way you are right now. And so in this situation, you see someone like rom dos and you hero. He doesn't watch. Larry, david. I'm not gonna watch Larry David her. You see somebody? Who is like, you know, making decisions that are based on a lifetime of practice, and you want to skip the lifetime of practice, and you want to just do the decisions that they're making not understanding that because that would be easier than to it. It would be like instead of going to college. It would be like putting on a graduation outfit and a hat and giving yourself like a PHD, for example, and walking around, and like, you know, acting as though you the way you would seen the teacher act. And so this is not this is not it it's and this is the other element of getting into real time. And in the moment, as you are is because where you're at right now is it, and that's the other thing Ramdas talks about which I love so much, which is that this thing is you are from the, you know, gleaming, beautiful reflective quality of your deepest self that is showing to everyone around you. Who can see it your true identity is a soul mate of love? Or a thing. That is a bridge connecting to the divine consciousness or to all the way to like, whatever your porn history is from last couple of nights ago. The entirety of the continuum has within it. In this moment right now, something that is fundamentally good and in that is the practice. So when people say meditation is the practice for death. I'm never understood that. But I do think it's a good way to practice listening. And it's a good way not to just practice listening to others and listening to music and listening with your eyes as you take in beauty and listening with your skin. Is you take.

But the real practices untangling big ball of fucking cords are like going going to the grocery store driving around at traffic. Yeah, and not getting angry. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. And that. Sort of the what I've learned from dos and what I've learned from these retreats is the word learned is wrong, isn't it? It's not really learned, and that's why I love the title of.

Yeah, you know, this person, the meat or this person's mirror has a nice coat of depression, right? Right, right.

When you've been on a long road trip and you like there's fucking bugs and just lack shit. And and do you believe that guru cease through that into the the light behind it? Right. Absolutely. I mean, and that what you make me think of right there and I love the idea of not learning in the one of the things about the whole Ramdas teachings for me and other sort of Buddhists texts was that I thought that like, I'm, I'm this flawed silly human here, and I have to learn and take these spiritual teachings or at least that's just sort of what I learned growing up really polishing the MIR just idea of, no, actually, this is all in you and you're there all the time in your perfect as is.

Go to a bookstore, get grist for the mill unbelie Ramdas maybe good place started the book or on audio on itunes or something. Experiments, and truth is truth. And now Kate naive done that, and I will continue episode. It's wonderful. I've gifted experiments and truth to at least thirty people. It's like a constant gifting, and I don't know of anyone opens it because they never bring it up again. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they do. But I opened up experiments and truth and I hit play and that's a, it's a about a seven, eight hour lectures. It's like seven, eight tracks of hours each. And the moment that I'm on is the NFL the I'll be brief Ramda's is basically talking about when he was at Harvard. He had made it. He was at Harvard. It was all about power. He had his own plane. He smokes cigars. He went to orgies. He was drinking a lot. He was eating a lot, everyone at every party wanted to talk to him because he was a Harvard professor. His parents were proud of him. He had everything and he says underneath it all there was a Malays. And when he said the word, I just got the chills when I when he said Malays. I, you know, I'm feeling emotional just hogging. I was like that the word I'm not depressed depression. I've seen people who are depressed. The different thing. They're not able to like go out and I don't know. I had a Malays. There was a coating of dust on everything I was doing. It was a Malaysian was heavy. And he said, even though I played that game life for all the points, I knew how to collect their remained in me Malays like an itchiness that there was something more behind through within whispering, the paraphrasing behind all of this shit that we're collecting and hoarding and rubbing on ourselves, hoping it makes us giggle and orgasm and full. You know what I'm saying? I know you do and he goes the punchline to this thing. I'm listening to this blowing my mind and he goes, I realized later that that Malays was grace that grace the Malays was there to say. There's something more. Isn't that the truth tree and I'm I'm, I can't tell the story enough. I 'cause I'm reliving it as we're talking. It's just like it's grace. It's not. It's like Pete, Ron says, you're hallock, that's, that's. That's the answer. Like you have a problem. You're you're, you're covering something up. It's telling you the truth telling you the truth here to save you, right? You stop doing it and then you start doing something else cert- working with what it is that you're covering up with the alcohol. And with me, I was like, what am I missing? And the truth was as I was missing my connection to the reality of what is the mystery and I had lost it and what's faxes. I had it and then I took it for granted and then slipped away and now on a boat and I'm drunk and I'm wondering where I lost it remembering and forgetting remembering and forgetting. That's the game at the sine wave of our lives. I forget this, but it's true and I had forgotten and I thought I was done forgetting. But there I was. I had forgotten and I go home and I write the whole quote out is quite long. Actually. You send it to me..
