It's important to stress that there is a prohibition. It's mentioned three times in the tora. There was a prohibition against adding or subtracting from the torah. You cannot make a new mid song yet. Apparently it seems like these. Rabbis are coming up and making all kinds of new mid snows on their own. If you cannot alter the torah on what grounds can. The rabbis may decrees and ordinances. How does rabbinic law coexist with the prohibition of and deducting subtracting from the tomorrow so. This question is addressed by the rim bond in the book of deuteronomy chapter four. That's the first three times where talks about not to add nor subtracts from the torah and he tells us two points says number one. This in itself is a tower.

Transforming Two Fears, FOF And FOMO
"Readings and welcome to start with a poem from the poet. Rumi this is how a human being can change. There's a worm addicted to eating grape. Leaves suddenly he wakes up colored grace. Whatever something him and he's no longer worm houston the entire vineyard and the orchard to the fruit the trunk growing wisdom and joy that doesn't need to devour. This is how human being can change. This is a verse or poem about really the evolution of consciousness and this shifting from a separate self out of fear and grasping is kind of addicted habitual and to that realization of connection and oneness allows us to really live from a place of love and wisdom with. I'd like to do during this class. Is i ask you the question. Really what is between me and that sense of that whole mess. Growing wisdom enjoy just a sense what is between me and that experience and then to really look at two areas that many of us land on that seemed to run interference to areas of a fear where we might say. We're stuck as that worm. That's kind of addicted to the to the grape leaves. And then just to explore how meditation can be this evolutionary strategy that allows for grace that allows us to wake up and to begin with just to say. It's totally natural that we go through a phase of being the worm eating graves. I mean that's just part of evolution to and i don't know how many of you either had the hungry caterpillar. Read to you a ready to your children are reading your grandchildren. How many hungry caterpillar. so that's a good ninety percent of us which is a story of a hungry caterpillar that each day is getting more and more food and the foods beautiful like all these different kinds of fruits and vegetation and there's nothing wrong with it and at some point he gets really big and full and he creates a cocoon and there's a kind of stillness and then boom you know he's transformed.

We don't have enough computer chips
"The pandemic cause lots of shortages from personal protective equipment to laptops bicycles but one supply shortage. Could slow down the economy for months. Even after covid is gone. That's the global shortage of chips. Not lay's chips but semi conductor chips the types of silicon power everything from our computers to our cars recode rebecca. Hi awhile has been covering the shortage. Hair becca hey so. This feels like the sort of niche problem. But semiconductors are in everything so tell me what exactly a semi conductor is. Semiconductors or ships are basically the building block of all the devices that we're using today. You know the computers in your refrigerator or the computers in your car phones and many computer. All of that is being made with these tiny little chips. That are powering these technologies and the really important. because we don't just need them for entertainment. We need them to work and learn and especially during the pandemic when we're doing all of these things from home and you not only have your devices at school or your office. Many people also have a full second Electronics setup at their house and what kind of problems is a chip shortage. Going to cause like talk me through. How does this play out in in the world that we experience in the world. We care about in everyday life so broadly. The increase in demand for electronics in general means that we don't have enough chips actually make those electrons so if you weren't getting a laptop on time or a phone on time that you really needed that's how it would affect you. But in the united states there's this particular challenge that's popped up with the automakers. Obviously automakers are really important and the shortage in chips is actually delaying production of cars and some models from gm or actually not going to be running with an advanced fuel technology system right now because the carmakers can't get the chip that they need so we're seeing idle workers in the united states. Some workers being laid off because of this chip shortage. But you know it's not just cars. Samsung is talking about delays with their phones their medical device makers who have asked for help because they also are worried about the chip shortage. So this is really a very very big issue for all sorts of things that we do told about why this is happening. And how did covid cause or accelerate the shortage in the first place so the primary cause for the shortage is the increase in demand in an industry. That isn't that flexible. In terms of how much it can make talking to semiconductor. They say the lead time can be you know over twenty twenty five weeks to make one of these chips so it's not an an industry that can just flip. The switch in terms of of making more another challenge is that we're dealing with incredibly complicated supply chains and there are just a few companies that have the infrastructure and very very expensive infrastructure to make these chips but they need to get materials from other companies. There's also a he does some trump tara trade policies that are making the market. Even little bit more constricted. The us has not really developed a very strong backup system of its own supply. Chain has just twelve percent of global manufacturing in the sector and you used to have nearly forty percent back in the nineteen nineties so we really haven't focused on our own. Us domestic manufacturing of these chips. Which sort of is making a lot of people nervous right now. Especially you know the car makers but you know all sorts of Device makers in the united states right now and. What can we do about that. We can't go back from twelve percent of forty percent overnight. What are people who think about the future of the auto industry governors people who have jobs and the line people who have angry customers calling. What are they doing about this. The biden administration has ordered a giant review of the semiconductor supply chain part of a broader effort. That he's focused on and focus on his campaign as well to sign a boost the resilience of us supply chains. And for you know. We're in the midst of this now. But there's going to be one hundred day review of the semiconductor supply chain. And that's doing a lot of research with all the different chipmakers trying to figure out like where you get these components. What happened in this disaster scenario and really scoping out what this actually looks like. There is legislation that some people say really needs to be funded. That would actually incentivize building. High tech manufacturing in the united states for chips hasn't been funded yet. But that's something that some chipmakers really really wanna see but you know taking the step of the us government actively incentivizing companies to go away from building these trips abroad where it is cheaper. And they've done so for economic reasons and having them chips in the united states. That's a pretty big statement and that's going to be a lot of money and it doesn't always work out. well you could end up with empty factories factories. That aren't being used three years or five years down the line and for customers. What can we do beyond expect our products to take longer to get to us. You know in the gm case you might get that product but you might not get it with a feature that you really wanted mentioning the advanced fuel technology system which means that if you were trying to buy one of those gm trucks you might be paying a little bit more for gas in. That just might be the compromise. But you know it's a reminder to really pay attention to supply chain
Wandering Madrid and talking Cost of Living in Spain
"Of all i will duck into my local cafe and get a cup of coffee. We'll see how much a cup of coffee costs. Let's sit down. And i'll run through some comparisons with cost of living in spain and other cities as around the world. I went out and opponents. Room tara potter so i got my cup of coffee. I ordered a which is a short coffee. Little splash of milk. My coffee came to the princely sum of one euro and forty cents pretty much suspended price madrid and spain in here with the social distancing measures in effect. I'm just telling you look man chalkboard to see what they thought on offer for food. The on as i think the average price of a fairly representative i would say Typical baas around the campus little on the average price seems to be eight or nine years for iraq. You on another point. Generous portions of food which can be shared between two or three people. I suppose so. We've got seven euros with bob. Problems seven plates of hamilton and kosovo seven euros of seven-year-olds snails. Got gotta call is six. We got sandwiches. Ideals were about four euros. Three hundred fifty super affordable. Some things that do surprise of which. I consider a little bit pricey i suppose is some seafood can be expensive even though spain is a nature of seafood consumers. But certainly things like Octopus for example. I can see arafura of purple. I like data which is a galaxy in style octopus fifteen-year-olds for plate octopus got up. There chip it on his which some of my favorites like frying baby cussing fish. I suppose and eleven euros for play to chop beatles lusa which are absolutely delicious. I must say if we're talking about beer and wine in our like this where i am now about growth little kanye which is about two hundred mils of beer. It's going to cost something like one. Thirteen one forty. Maybe one fifty a large science at aa probably about two years to fifty so very affordable wine around the same price for a small glass of wine fairly normal local one. I suppose it's gonna cost you between one eight hundred eighty something like that but why wanted to run through the kind of ranking of spanish cities in terms of their affordability living the cost of living. It's a question. I've been asked quite a lot in the past from listeners. Interested in moving to spain. How much things cost rents accommodation utility bills and back kind of thing and this is run through the list of cities in terms of cost of living as twenty twenty. According to my research the most expensive city in terms of cost of living is actually be bad. And that doesn't surprise me. I've heard that me. Bow son sebastian. Up in the north of spain expensive cities number two on the list so the second most expensive city in spain is cheap. Celona and again. This does not surprise me mean i suppose. Many people would imagine that madrid being capital city would be more expensive now. It seems to me rental prices and property prices between madrid and barcelona fairly similar course does tend to be a little bit more expensive in. Barcelona is your daily cost of living. The third most expensive city is of course madrid which makes sense for a capital city european capital again. I've got to say in my experience of european capital cities. Madrid has got to be up there with some of the most affordable capital cities that you could live in fourth most expensive as photographer number. Five is pulmoddai orca number six on the list surprisingly granada down and luthier the seventh. Most expensive is number. Eight is valencia. Now that's interesting series so far down the list of expensive cities because it is spain's third largest city so considering it signs an affordable city to live in number nine on the list is santa cruz veterinary on the island. The canarian island of tenor eighth number. Ten is seville number. Eleven on the list is malika a number twelve. My list is less thomas on the canary islands. Right then so. I'm going to make a little comparison. Classic sound of the someone pumping on the whole and outside the bar because there is some kind of truck which is stopped in the middle of the street. Let's hope that doesn't continue. Let's look living cost of living comparison between london and madrid for example pseudo coating to my research you would need around two thousand eight hundred sixty three pounds all three thousand three hundred and forty three euros in madrid to maintain the same standard of life that you can have which i need that would happen. Descended into some chaos and some of the guys in the bar won't stop the heads out the door to to see what's going on out there say place at half past twelve in the afternoon drinking. A cup of coffee never announces already on the wine. I met there still a little bit early for me right. Let's see if i can get this out. So the cost of living comparison between london and madrid. One trying to say is that to maintain the same standard of life that you can have in london with four thousand seven hundred you would only need two thousand eight hundred sixty three pounds to have the same standard of life

From The Ashes With the Michels From Backyard Leisure
"So day on these retailer podcast. I have josh and earl michaels. They are a father and son. Team in indiana. Are you her right now. We are they are the guys who run backyard leisure with their main location in toronto and they have two locations in illinois. So thanks for coming on the podcast today. Guys thank you so this is a rare occasion. Where i'm not sure i have ever interviewed either of you before for the magazine or the podcast anything so this is kind of exciting because i feel like i get a whole fresh story that even i have heard before we're honored always start off getting people's backgrounds. Where did you start out. How did you get into the industry. How did you end up working in this company together. I guess you're probably the to start with for that all right well. How long do we have. The podcasts can go on for hours and hours. So it's really it's really depends on how chatty you're feeling alright so in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. My wife and i decided we wanted to zibo in our backyard. And i couldn't find anybody to build one by one from so i actually got a lead from a little company and southern indiana. That makes them. They referred me to a dealer quite a distance away and that particular dealer. Didn't want to deal with me from the distanced. So i called the company back and they told me well. The only way you can buy one is if you're a dealer so i asked them what that took and they told me so. We bought two. And i lived out in the country on a pretty well traveled road and We put one in the backyard where we wanted it and then we put one out front and i came up with the name backyard leisure and we opened a business account with thousand dollars. We sold our first gazebo to an old farmer. Who's eighty five year. Old wife had always wanted one. He came and bought it and took it home. He brought his tractor in his pickup truck and trailer and loaded up. Because he didn't want to pay me to deliver it so he took it home and put a big red bow on it. I suppose and gave it to his wife christmas so that was actually it is. That was our very first sale and then my career was in the insurance industry. And i was still active in the insurance industry so we started out very small. I put it a small display lot brought in a couple of more gazebos and some outdoor furniture and we sold some fairly successfully. I decided that. I would go ahead and expand that a little bit. We rented some ground and The prime retail area of tara. Hold indiana i put in zibo displays there. I've got a big sign with an eight hundred toll. Free number and i started selling gazebos by appointment one day. We got a call from a manufacturer. That's here in the midwest and they asked if we would consider selling hot tubs. I said well yell but we don't have any place to sell them so at that time there was a little corner not too far away. From where are gazebo display and tear ho was we ended up renting that it was a two car garage and small building that we used as a office and a small store where people could buy. Chemicals is very small so we did that. I believe that was from two thousand three until two thousand seven. That's how we sold hot tubs. I can't imagine you knew what you're getting yourself into with hot tubs because gazebos and even patio furniture. You kinda you sell it. You drop it off. And that's the individ hot tubs. There's a lot more touch points between the dealer and consumer that's right. We did have some inkling what we'd need. We hired a young man to help with our deliveries and our service aspect of it. Then i also had an older gentleman that would man the office building and sell for us. We were fairly successful on a small level. You know i mean enough to where it didn't cause me to thank well. I need to stop doing this. So in two thousand six. We decided if we're to do this. We need to actually find a place to do it. You can't sell hot tubs out of a two car garage forever. So we re released a six thousand square foot building. That was actually just right next door to where we had been operating. We lease that and we moved in there. After a year of being there under lease we bought that property and as time went by of course we expanded our offerings and so forth and then of course in twenty eighteen we had the fire and then once that happened we ended up moving into the location that we are here when you really decided to go. Full force into hot tubs. It was what you year or two before the recession before kind of hot tub sales plummeted at least across the country. I mean what was that. Like for you guys. I mean you can have had gone all in got the six thousand square foot showroom and next thing you know the whole country is in this economic depression right. Let's actually kind of one of the things that we think has helped us to be successful. is that we. We didn't really experienced the glory days. Were told you know back in the early two thousands that it was pretty easy to sell. Hot tubs swell. At that time we were. We were nothing really. You know so we were operating on a shoestring and you know. By the time everybody else was experiencing something of a crash for us. We were probably still actually growing a little bit because we were so new. You could consider difficult time to start but it may be was in the end Better for us because we we didn't become accustomed to an easy experience with selling out to us we were. We were so new that it was just normal.
FCC Approves Plan For 3-Digit Suicide Prevention Number
"Call in case of an emergency. The bill making its way through the state legislature would create a hotline to have counselors, not police respond to people experiencing mental health crises. KCRW's Tara a tree on has more In the future, you might texture dial 98 to be connected with mental health professionals. The number is a part of the Miles Hall Lifeline Act, named after a 23 year old black man who was fatally shot by Walnut Creek police during a mental health crisis. The bill's author, Democratic Assemblywoman Rebecca Bauer, Kayhan says a comprehensive crisis response system could prevent stories like halls since 2015 a quarter of all fatal police involved. Shootings involved mental illness with black men dying disproportionately. Hey, Hands. Bill would instruct 911 calls regarding mental health emergencies to be transferred to 988 dispatchers for both lines would be able to decide who the appropriate responders are. And 988 is the new national suicide prevention and Mental Health crisis hotline created by the federal government last year, states are required to activate that line by July of 2022.

Cuomo Victim Charlotte Bennett Opens Up About Sexual Harassment Allegations in Raw Interview
"Very interesting now. The joe biden. Although kamala harris the leader of the i believe her caucus has yet to say anything about cuomo fascinating times we live in. Don't we joe biden is said. Oh yeah no need to have an investigation while there were two women that accused joe biden. One woman by the name of lucy florez another by the name of tara reade tara reade in a recent interview actually said that a biden aide told her we will blanking destroy you. Well sounds a little bit. Like ron kim statement about andrew cuomo but the issue is real and it seems like the i believe her caucus only become believers. If it's a republican that they're accusing for whatever political purposes. They are gender they have at the time and we saw what happened in the cavenaugh case. That's why i'm consistent. I don't rush the judgment and we believe in due process anyway. One of the accusers charlotte bennett. Is we talked about earlier today. Went on cbs news and talked about governor cuomo and what she believed he was trying to do and everybody that i've talked to bell choose extremely credible. Here's how it went down governor. Cuomo said that he has never propositioned anybody. Do you believe that he was propositioning. You yes for what sex. The pandemic was obviously stressful for all of us and he was on tv nearly every day talking about it here on book good so you think all this national attention may have emboldened him absolutely. I think he felt like he was untouchable. In a lot of ways then it says their professional relationship took a turn on may fifteenth when she alleges. The governor started asking her about her love. Life and then became fixated repeating over and over again. History is a sexual assault survivor. So he goes. You were raped. you were raped. You were raped and abused and assaulted. another key. encounter happened on june fifth. When bennett says she was called into cuomo's office to take dictation and he told her to turn off the tape recorder and then he explains at that point that he is looking for a girlfriend. He's lonely he's tired. You've just finished dictation and the governor is telling you he's lonely and looking for a relationship yes he asked if i had trouble enjoying being with someone because of my drama. This seems highly inappropriate. Yeah the governor. Asked me if i was sensitive fantasy in his office yes during the workday you have been quoted as saying that he also asked you about. If you've ever been with an older man. Yeah he asked me. If age difference mattered. He also explained that he was fine with anyone over twenty two. And how old are you. Twenty five what were you thinking. He's asking you these questions. I thought he's trying to sleep with me. The governor is trying to sleep with me. And i'm deeply uncomfortable and have to get out of this room as soon as possible and to be clear. What made you think that he was trying to sleep with you without explicitly saying it. He implied to me. That i was old enough for him and he was lonely. How did you respond to those questions. I responded honestly. And when i was even thinking of coming forward i think that was where i held the most shame and that like i really was uncomfortable. Why did you feel shame. I feel like people the onus on the woman to shut that conversation down by answering. I was somehow engaging in that or enabling it when in fact i was just terrified. People will watch this and say why didn't you get up and leave. It didn't feel like i had a choice. He's your boss is my boss. He's everyone's boss. Governor cuomo said in a statement that what he said may have been misinterpreted. Did you misinterpret him. No i understood him out in clear just didn't go the way he planned. I never know at the time. I was making anyone feel uncomfortable. Did you watch governor. cuomo's apology it's not an apology. It's not an issue of my feelings. It's an issue of his actions. The fact is that he was sexually harassing me and he has not apologized for sexually harassing me. And he can't even use my name.
The Power of Deep Listening
"Welcome again friends. It really is good to be together. And i thought i'd start by just naming a compelling question that so many people i know around the globe are reflecting on right now and that is what will bridge the divides and i know you know what i mean. What will bridge the divides knew what will help us. Humans of all beyond our separate cocooned realities that end up creating so much distrust and fear and violence in this talk. What i'd like to do is focus on one key way. Each of us can contribute to evolve in consciousness to volving our own consciousness in our species consciousness. And that's cultivating cassidy for deep listening. I mean just imagine if people from different political parties and groups and nations in conflict actually did a little bit of training and practice so that they could little bit more. Listen to each other to get some sense of being able to look through another. Is henry david. Thoreau described as the greatest miracle possible relate to look through each other's is it is possible though we have this built in capacity to listen and we can cultivate listening and of course it is difficult so for starters. I thought i'd give you a couple of examples of the kinds of challenges we face the first cartoon That i'll tell you about a couple sitting together watching tv. And she saying to him. You know you only hear the things you wanna hear and he responds a beer. Sounds lovely thank you. Second cartoon job interview the employers asking mister jefferson. Where do you see yourself five years from now response. I'd say my biggest weakness is my listening skills. I know you get the idea. It's kind of like. I think calvin coolidge said it best that no one is ever listened themselves out of job so by extension. We don't listen ourselves out of relationships. This theme I'm imagining many of you. It's not only something you're aware of. It's something you're consciously working on. I know for myself. It's a life process and it's so interesting that now and then i get more conscious of. Oh this is really really important. this matters. and then i- rededicate. It's really energizing to rededicate. I love that so if you feel like this is the right time for you to deep in your commitment to how you listen right close in with the people right around you. It creates a group energy to do that together and it helps our world so a key. Understanding is that the capacity to listen is not just another skill on the checklist of it. You know it's really a dimension of presents being able to listen is a dimension of presence. it's a intrinsic facet of evolving consciousness and it impacts all dimensions of living and you might just consider inner listening you know. How are we going to be intimate with their own being. How are we gonna tuned to the state of our hard and acknowledge when there's loneliness s or when there's fear or longings so inner listening is how we become more at home with ourselves then of course listening to each other. There's no way to have real intimacy connection and understanding unless weaken listen and then in our contemporary society. I really do believe that trainings to listen. Ringing people from conflicting sides together to practice listening will give a gateway for more collaboration. Were understanding then. Of course terms of we want to call it the spiritual path. It's those moments where we stop all doings and we become profoundly septa quiet open. It's at listening presence. That really those are the moments that we touch and taste the mystery that we receive beauty that we start to perceive intuit. That formless timeless awareness. It's really home. So it really gives us a sense of the sacred some naming the different levels and we'll be exploring primarily. How do we listen. More deeply with those were engaged with whoever you spend time talking with the most and maybe we'll just pause here for a moment of do several reflections through our time this first reflection and when we do them if it helps you to close your eyes please do. It always helps me just to take a moment and bring to mind someone you know who is a really good listener.
Namaste: Seeing the Truth of Who We Are
"Number stand. Welcome those of you. That are listening regularly. We always start with this gesture and word of nama stay and you might be aware that the word stay is a way of greeting or bowing or honoring the divine that lived through all of us and the gesture of the palms togetherness slate bowing of the head is part of the embodying that that honoring and i love that. I do a lot of bowing and my own practice because in the moments of going like this. There's a tenderness and care that wakes up through it for the life that's really living through all of us and i often contrasted in my mind too because in asia people go around all the time nama stay on and then in the west we shake hands and the origin fifth century. She is my hands empty. I'm not carrying a weapon. Not carrying a gun which is a great step as we know. I'm safe which is beautiful. I sometimes think that. Because we're in this time of different. Currents around the globe in influencing how would be in contemporary society of that became part of our living ritual with each other are whatever way we wanted to adapt it that that we saw each other and someplace in us looked into the eyes that were there. And you might. You might do this right now. Just you can close your eyes the event but just sense okay this is a moment of really honoring and bowing to the beauty and goodness and all beings and just to to your head slightly and sense that mentally whispering. Perhaps if you'd like and sense whether it brings you home to a tender heartedness and open heartedness so we begin this way because of the theme for tonight and not just begin by saying that. The buddha taught that the core of our suffering is a forgetting of who we are that we live in an idea of a limited self fearful cellphone wanting shelf winning shelf a losing south and we forget the the love and the and the light that really is living through us and one of my favorite stories. I heard many many years ago when my son was still in waldorf school here in washington i think he was looking at fifth grade and the art classes. The children would gather around their art tables. Maybe four table and one day. The teacher was circulating around as the children were drawing and one little girl was really into it and she's really into her drawing and to the teacher stood behind her for a while and then finally she asked her. She said so hon. What are you drawing. And the little girl didn't respond right away but then she said i'm doing god and the teacher took that and she was well you know nobody really knows what god looks like without skipping a beat without even looking up she said they will in a moment often. Think about John o'donoghue poet said that she said what happened to our wildness. That wildness of god's of the divine of that sense of really being connected. And we kinda get civilized out of us a bit and thomas merton puts it this way. He says life simple. We're living in a world that's absolutely transparent and divine shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story are fable. This is true it's true. So what will explore in this talk is really what gets in the way of what what stops us from being able to genuinely fuel and see and shanshan into it that intrinsic goodness and honor what gets in the way and just say that if we take that the evolutionary perspective the delusion. The forgetting isn't like a mistake. It's it's just part of the process that we come into form and we get identified this something smaller than what we are and that as we evolve we begin to recognize all the patterns to keep us small

The sensations of the xl as the breath leaves the nostrils again inhaling deeply filling the chest lungs and then as you exhale feel a sense of letting go letting go letting go and then as the breath comes back into its natural rhythm just notice the quality of presence such here the sense of being right here right now that we can touch into even with just a little bit of focused attention we can deepen that presence as bring that gentle attention to the body that heart presents to the body you might begin to softening the is leading the brow be smooth receptive to the sensations that wake up as you relax in the region of the brow perhaps the flickering of light dr at the lids you might bring a slight smile to the mouth which sends a message to the whole nervous system to relax to let go fight flight freeze so it's possible to feel more of a sense of that. Benevolence towards whatever's arising. The job unhinged perhaps the tongue filling the lower palate maybe relaxing down to the root of the tone then opening a receptive way to the sensations in the mouth. Just noticing as you relax that you can be more intimate with sensations. Allow the shoulders to drop away from the neck. Let the awareness fill the shoulders see can feel from the inside out including whatever tension or tightness. Is there with a gentle presence. A soft attention. Notice if there's any natural letting go releasing relaxing the hands are asked in a very easy and effortless way you might explore softening the hands softening again.
Making It RAIN With Tara Brach
"Nice to see you and you. I think this is the second time we've met. The first time we met in my memory was backstage at some meditation event. And i remember being a little hesitant because i saw you there and i thought i fun of her a little bit in my book and i didn't know how is going to go but then you gave me a big hug. So a where are we with that. Are you mad at me for who is actually a really great experience for me. Because you know everyb- it's famed disrepute and you know and you made fun of me. Some and you also appreciated the thing that most matter to me which is the practice of rain and figured you know. I can survive this. Well i've talked about this a lot on the show of my apologies to folks who've had to hear me hold forth on this too much but i got three. Do you know what a three sixty review is. If you've ever heard yeah. I got one and basically all the people in or many of the people in my life anonymously commented on my strengths and weaknesses. In one of the weaknesses was being judgmental. You i think were really an early victim of mine on the scored in the meditation world and there was a message for me too. Because i'm basically out to wake up and be able to present things in a way that are gonna reach people and i suspected for you. My way was had too much of a A kind of ui to sweet flavor. And i realize oh. There's going to be a message. People like dan that that's the way they receive it. And i think as we keep growing we just get more flexible ways. We present things so there was room for that. Yes i agree. I think yeah you have a way of talking about this that works for hundreds of thousands of people my way of talking about it or thinking about it or acting it out in the world is very different and that's the importance of having many folks out there talking about the dharma on this me too me too. It's really exciting to me actually. And it's exciting when the dialogues happened because basically we're free when we all stretch say more about the. Yeah the more first of all a teacher. The more flexibility. I have in how i present things. In the more sensitive. I am to the different ways. People receive things the more effective i can be and as a practitioner for instance this morning. I was talking to my husband about a book that right now reading for the twentieth time in. It's i am that by screener sergey data and it's a book about nonfuel reality about seeing how really constantly looking at. How am i getting identified right in this moment. Like really seeing past the coagulation of self recognizing okay. I'm not this particular personality. I'm not this body and recognizing a larger sense of being us and so we were talking about that. And i then i just said you know that is fantastic when my mind is quiet enough but if i'm caught in some anxiety for me to say oh i'm not this. Anxiety actually is a subtle way of pushing it away and what's more important as for me to feel the wave of anxiety and in some way. Okay this belongs. This is part of this is a wave in the ocean you know and to actually feel it and in opening to it and not resisting the identification actually dissolves so the pathway taught in the book that i'm riveted by right. This moment isn't the pathway. At any given moment our will at work for many people when they're stuck in a certain way so it just having that keeping the whole domain of practice fresh so in any given moment. There's a an intuitive way to respond to what arising now that actually deepens freedom and not going by road really is is actually what works in the most deep ways. So you talk about implicitly. A change that. I've seen you make in my observation of you as a teacher. Since the first time. I saw you speak until reading your most recent book so in the teaching of rain are a i n which we're going to walk through in detail. The first time. I heard you speak the n stood for non identification. Now you teach it as nurture which in your last answer. I think. I heard you say that nurturing leads to the non identification if you can be cool with whatever's coming up and you mentioned anxiety and you've talked about personally the things i'd in your own life if you're gonna be cool with anxiety if you can you know. Be warm in the face of this unwelcomed visitor in your own mind. That can ultimately i if i hearing you correctly. Correct me if i'm wrong. Lead you to seeing. Oh yeah this is just a visitor. It isn't me that's exactly right and if we bypass the nurturing and it's not like every time something comes up we have to put our hand on our hard and offer all sorts of phrases of self compassion but there are times that bringing a kindness and a warmth to watch their offense the resistance in a way that were embodied and yet more spacious and if we skip over it if we go to quickly to sing oh this isn't me. I'm not identified. It's actually a subtle kind of dissociation. We're not really embodied so the more full freedom is to be with the wave and realize your oceanus through the process of being with the wave which for most of us take some quality of kindness.

Chris Harrison 'stepping aside' from 'The Bachelor' after controversial interview
"The bachelor is now looking for a permanent replacement to chris harrison to host the show exclusive. You're not gonna hear this anywhere else so. Chris temporarily stepped down from the show or so he thinks but insiders tell me he might never come back. Get this sifford. At weird's is well. I've got a really good explanation for it so source ocal remember tom bergeron and dancing with the stars before the racist incident. Abc had decided that chris was a little tarnish that had been on the show for over a decade. Another white gentleman on tv. Times have changed so they will already looking for somebody younger. Maybe a person of color maybe a female they were looking for options for a potential new hosts they did. They did this to tom. Tom did not know this was coming. So basically they're looking for another tyra banks now. I know tyrus controversial on on this show. We really debated tyra. I worked for tyra. So i know her but it took me a moment to love on dancing with the stars. But you can't deny there's a lot more birds on dancing with the stars and the ratings which is really old aka robots. The rates have gone up so looking for a tire type. You some of the names that have been bouncing around the halls at is tyrod is tara. Banks should be. But i think she's got a handful on dancing with the stars but it is it. Abc show so she could do these names. I'm hearing chrissy. Teigen is somebody they really like. I think christie has a relationship with nbc. So that's tricky. Another name on hearing within the abc family is antony and discern. I love him. Always a lot of fart ria from blache i mean but but he too like didn't he have some type of scandal back in there was something there. I don't remember it off the top of my head by get see that being assured trusting another name too and they love him. Abc michael stray ham. They really love him and he certainly charismatic. And when you think love. I could see him not as the bachelor is not handing roses but he's a trick host and get this. This names are very interesting. Name rachel lindsay i. She was the very first. In fact. I think the only other black bachelorette and she's the one who spoke to chris who interviewed chris. And that's where this whole controversy started now. Rachel says she's done with this. She's done with the franchise. She has a couple of more events to do and then she's contractually free of them and she wants to move on but that was before her name popped up to replace him of course.
The Superpower of Mindful Witnessing
"Welcome friends and thank you for tuning in. I'd like to start this talk with a story. There's a magician who was traveling through the region. He was going from town squared town square and he'd astonished people with his magic. He had this capacity to be able to point to things with finger shovel book hat and it returned a goal. So the final show of the day. Everyone's applauding completely wild by his powers. Except one boy. And this boy been carrying a stick. He'd been playing but he stopped and he'd been fully attentive through the whole show but never clapped and in the end everyone went home except this boy and the magician pointed to the stick and took gold then. The boy had no reaction. You didn't say anything. So the magician pointed to his shoelaces his bell. Turn them to gold again. The boy is just kind of noticing and then he asks what's wrong. You're the the richest in town. Why aren't you happy. What is it you want and the boy said. What i want is the magic. So what does that mean to have the magic finger you know. We think we want the prize. You know the money. The made the accomplishment the security of even the feeling of pleasure happiness we fixate on the prize and we lose sight of the source of all that we cherish which is presence the open hearted presence. That's possible right here and now so the gateway to that presence is the magic finger. The gateway is our capacity to mindfully witness. What's going on right here in this moment in on the bottom of my computer i have sticky note. I'm still very non digital certain ways and all that's on it is pause the word pause but every time. I remember to really stop really pause. I'm able to witness what's going on. You know maybe it's speediness or anxiety or in some way not in my body. But i can witness and and then breath for a few moments and inhabit a larger presence. And then i just re engaged with whatever i'm doing more clear more embodied more more wholehearted so i bring that up because witnessing this ability to really observe and sense what's happening with a non judging awareness of the kind awareness this witnessing is our gateway so we'll pause together right here the beginning and just look at awakening the witness and you might wherever you are just closure is for a moment and let your attention go inward and the two questions that help to activate the witness. The first is what's happening inside me right now. What's going on in your body. Whatever sensations or feelings there traces of thoughts. The first question is what's happening inside me in the second. Can i let this be. Non judging. kind presence azure attending noticing leading. They now sense the experience of knowing. You're aware
The case for Baylor at No. 1 over Gonzaga
"The only respectful way to begin. This episode is by recognizing that scott drew baylor bears formerly known. As bill henderson's baylor bears improved a seventeen on the season tuesday night with an eighty-three sixty nine victory at texas. They outscored the longhorns. By seven in the first half they outscored the longhorns. By seven in the second half as a result baylor otherwise known as terry eagles alma mater is now seventeen and fifteen. Double digit wins. The bears are number one at kim palm. Their number one in the net. they are awesome undeniably. Norlander your turn to talk about baylor. Are you going to spend the next few minutes showing proper respect for the first lady of baylor basketball or are you going to once again disrespect. Kelly drew got drew. Plus mackenzie payton brody. Not to mention homer and janet price and tara dana and her husband. Casey bryson anna isaiah caleb. In luke plus drew barrymore drew carey. Drew brees drew bledsoe. Dr drew drew. Gooden andrew mcintyre how are you gonna handle this moment. bryce doesn't care does care. He'd bryce doesn't care. I talk to about it. He doesn't care. How are you going to atone for the fact that you still have a number one. I mean. I think it's disrespectful at this point. Daily top twenty five and one. After what i saw last night. I got baylor number one. But you don't and you disrespect the entire through family. And every drew. She has to drew mcgarry as well. You're disrespecting them all you've got number two. I think you're the one who needs to explain himself. I actually can't explain myself. And i do get asked this every day. I saw strong joe last night trying to make the case that baylor should be number one and i let it be clear. I won't argue with anybody that says baylor should be number. One baylor at this moment has a better resume than gonzaga. Got six quarter on lindsay. Does eggs only have five. Baylor is got the best adjusted efficiency margin in the country and one of the best of all time at this point. If you wanna if you wanna put baylor number one it is fine with me. It's just. I think we've talked about this. Before i made a rule a longtime ago i will not drop number one team unless it loses the only time i made an exception i went and looked it. Up is two seasons ago. Kansas was number one in the top twenty five and one to open the season. Kentucky might have been to. Duke was in the top five somewhere and do zion williamson cameras and remember the other one started with our allies and it was. It was whatever it doesn't matter. It doesn't rj barrett and so they went out and they just throttled kentucky on opening night at bankers life. And i just. I was even conflicted. Then because keynes's is just one and it was one zero and number one and i was like i don't feel silly not to have that duke team. That just did that to kentucky ranked number one. So i made an exception to the rule. Then but i've been ranking college basketball teams for better or worse for like more than fifteen years now and i've only dropped a number one team without losing one time and that is the example.
Radical Compassion with Tara Brach
"Hello and welcome to being well. I'm forrest hanson. If you're new to the podcast this is where we explore the practical science of lasting wellbeing. And if you've listened before welcome back. i'm joined today as usual by dr rick hansen. So dad how are you doing today. I'm good and i'm especially good because we're going to have a chance to talk with someone who's been a profound benefactor for me personally which is a term that really means something to me as well as a teacher and a friend and just one heck of a personal the way around. Tara brach so. I'm really happy that we're going to be doing this as super happy to be here with tara. Tara is the founder and guidance. Teacher the insight meditation community of washington dc one of the largest residential meditation centers in the united states prior to that as you said she earned her doctorate in clinical psychology and developed a clinical practice or teaching blends those two backgrounds western psychology and eastern spiritual practices mindful attention to our inner life and then a full compassionate engagement with the outside world which has been perhaps particularly challenging recently. Tara has taught all over the world and is the author of three books radical acceptance true refuge and most recently radical compassion. Which i believe just came out in paperback and podcast is also. I think the largest buddhism focused podcast in the world. Which is pretty incredible. If you like what we're doing here you should definitely get a lesson so tara. It's great to have you here today. How are you doing fires thank you. I am totally delighted to both of you. You're both deers in my heart. Yeah that's sweet. one reason. I wanted to really talk with you. Including in terms of current events has to do both with your new book radical compassion which integrates acceptance and compassion and in particular. I wanna ask you about your use of the word. Radical your first book was radical acceptance. What's the distinction between acceptance and compassion or radical acceptance and radical compassion. What did you mean by that by drawing attention to that word including perhaps in light of current conditions. I've always loved the word radical. Ever since i thought i was a left wing radical in the old days so it has a positive impact but it has to do with going to the roots and there are many expressions that the heart that are really beautiful and i was really wanting to explore the most pure and full-bodied expression of acceptance and compassion. What they mean really in terms of freedom so in both books whether it with acceptance. It's like what does it mean when we unconditionally accept this moment as it is and we fully earned bodied. So we're not just accepting but we're actually fueling the moment so are completely here present and with compassion. What is true compassion. What's mature compassion. Look like feel like. How do we cultivate ed. And it became clear to me that a lot of people have an abstract sense of compassion. Like we'll hear about if we don't have covert or people losing parents with covid but not having to ask though. Be something in us that goes. Oh that's so sad but it's abstract it's not a tenderness in the heart so radical compassionate embodied nor fully here to experience being touched by the suffering and it includes an activity of caring and engage caring so again with both of those qualities of the heart a really wanted to bring alive what it meant to have the most mature evolve version of them. You're a psychologist as well as longtime buddhist practitioner and you have root zoom eastern traditions as well broadly and also europe. Practical person of a functioning. Business you've raised a son. I wondered how you wove all those threads together especially in your interest in getting out the roots of things really the deep roots blah. That's like a really big. And deep question your guam radical to there we go so one of my guiding teachings from this is three saga datta and i come back to this one quote. All the time is that wisdom tells me. I'm nothing love tells me i'm everything. And between the two my life flows. And i find with the radical deep practices. We actually see unveils. What is true is. There's no thing or person here and there's a really deep wisdom and that a real freedom from holding on an openness and were also everything it's like when we send that emptiness there is this fastness. That feels that the whole world is part of us and this is going somewhere in terms of your question that i find in my own life by go off to retreat. It gets very quiet. And i can see clearly the emptiness the no thing ness that. There's nobody here but it's not until engagement with the world and feeling both the suffering and also as i'm just looking at you because your dear friend seeing the goodness and really feeling at that i sent the everything nest that we really are of the same consciousness and awareness were emergent expressions of it and so in my life. It's been a gift to be both really in the mix with humans with social activism with the whole mass and also create the pauses the silence and the stolnis that allows that seen through to the radical roots of the nature of things. And i feel like that blend flowing. It's not really a flow between one thing another. They're utterly inter penetrating but that feels like a very alive path to me.
Don't Count Out Kacper Zuk
"Zouk. I mean you look at his effectiveness against graduates. Made seventy percent of his first serves was twenty seven of thirty on first-serve points in the match nine of thirteen on second serve points so again. He's thirty six of forty three only lost seven points on serve throughout the duration of the entire match. That's freaking nuts and look casper soup another guy who only six feet tall but very alejandro davidovich fokina e davi go fanny in his athleticism. The word that comes to mind is just spring. He's a good athlete. He's gonna track down that extra ball in the corner. He the ball is going to explode off of his strings. His first serve is absolutely a weapon. You look for casper zouk over his last fifty two weeks. This is a guy who has had a ton of success onto or you look overall. Where's he at. In terms of his record. Casper zouk thirty three and nine in his last fifty two weeks onto or now you expand that to twenty nineteen he seventy and twenty eight overall in his last two seasons seven itf titles in eight total finals. Of course unlike Evan furnace looked for casper. Zoo he already has a semi-final at a challenger level under his belt made the semifinals. in calgary. last year he knocked off asheq pospisil in three sets. We all know when onto have a very successful. Indoor hardcourt season was in the midst. I should say of a very successful indoor hardcourt season when he lost that match in calgary but yeah for zouk seven titles in eight finals like everyone gets angry because fa doesn't win enough in finals. Casper's zook is winning and finals and again nine tara. Seven ten in his career and challenger matches. That's not great but it's not horrible.

"Chill. I don't need extra stress. Life is stressful already. You have to think about bills money health on partly politics racism and the dick heads live across the street or something like this in. I don't need to have to work work. I love my work. But yeah i don't need to have my friends adding stress to my life. If i add stress to their life i retrieved myself and move on and if they add out the mind i do the same so this has been my mode lately so off to some people would sounds like i don't know standoffish and putting up with crab kind of i don't know almost supadio feeling but it's not nobody should put up recap it's your life it's one live. It's i wouldn't say short to see long but it's alive and looks opponent off putting up shit from people that are supposed to bring you happiness so when that is not fulfilled its over and sometimes i feel like you know. I make a lot of excuses for people. And maybe for myself as well. And i kinda hang on but now i am thinking when it's time it's time and it was time very recently for some of mine doesn't feel good but it doesn't feel bad either is like komo's fresh docked there you go so i have been in that mode and i don't know why i'm sharing it with the world or the few people that listen to this podcast that is not even published. I mean it is published. But you know what i mean like. I was anywhere because these are all my tests but i feel like sharing and i think maybe that's what my costs will be about If fires doesn't come here obviously will be a lot more interesting to people especially since we are very close strangely but very different. And maybe actually. Maybe that's what makes it good. We era two very different people. We have different beliefs different upbringing and we can make it work because the top to beat the same to get along in fat. It's pretty good. When you have somebody to see things from different perspective we have things like everybody else and We don't see each other every day so it makes it easier to to you know. Be friends without strange. Strange crazy arguments. We haven't had one yet but we're pretty straightforward with each other with the good the bad things with the you're right tara with the need a slap in the face like you can ask because iran tara kendall thing and vice versa so i think that would make it a little better to have a podcast with two different perspective to different people and maybe some speakers as well that will odds to the mix. But if it's not a my use is almost like a personal journey by and maybe visit a little bit of topics. Maybe get somebody to talk with me doing it. But i think i'm gonna keep it. Which is very strange because it is very character. This is something. The bars came out with and the terrified. But then i thought it would be good for me to learn how pot custos made as i talked to podcasters every day in work work. Undercoating a work on their podcasts. So myself no goes beyond the the finished product anyway. So that's it. I think for today and probably have to finish my coffee and actually start doing some work so i am done for today. I think may come back later. I know i'm actually going to join us. And i will talk again next week or something or maybe later. Let's see i..

"Welcome to episode one of at the bars. We'd tara our weekly or so podcast about everything about nothing. Actually let's call these episodes zero. We had the pilot and this is episode zero. Because i don't wanna start without bars. Yeah this is not at the bars with. Tara is just We tara bars is nowhere to be found. She actually stood me up. Oh yeah she is probably doing something fun with a boyfriend that is. They're usually during the weekend so i can't blame her for standing me up. I am I don't have a live so here. I am practicing this. Actually i just came back from having the best seafood brahmin. So i had to say that i do something eat mainly but but yes so i wanted to sit here and test this again and also i want to try and see how it feels again. You know to be of the mike without being a deer in headlights like i could be without practice. So yes Usually we decided that we were going to have a drink during our podcast depending on the mood like a glass of wine vodka killer shot and so on but without my wing woman. I decided to just stick with coffee. So i'm having coffee. I'm here in california sun. I'm in northern california. So it's not that hot but it's sunny and enjoying the day out doing nothing really being boring. But i love that so i'm having a coffee. This third of the day amoco folic. I only go up to the so. I think i'm okay instead of wine. I m cheap date. So i thought that if i started. Can you hear my dog so my dog is barking. And i just want to know if you know when i have an official episode you can hear as well or a have to like lock myself somewhere in a closet or something away from every noise so that you don't hear it anyway. We'll see when listen to this again. So so yes not alcohol right now. I although there's some reason to celebrate today we actually finally got rid of the orange cheeto in charge Biden won the election today. Everybody seems happy a new beginning. You know this is not even. I want to go to the politics thing. This is not even about politics democrat and public on This guy was just bad. He threw threw fully. He divided this country now. Not it wasn't divided before but everybody's so angry against each other and and these asked to pack to finish had the end. So i guess i am with the settle. Settle for people. I'm settling. i hope that he will be able to do something. Because i know that The country is very divided. Andy will have a hard time to do something without being cock blocked. Can you say that Not only by the people amp reaction. But also by little old tuchel mitch mcconnell for example that i'm pretty sure out spy and tried to to to come up with that and i told you so kind of reaction so i'm sure he will have a lot of pushback and and it will have a hard time to do something good. Let's hope for new beginnings and our hope that this country can recover a little bit at least in the human civil right. This is where this president really think. Because i never really believed that Any party is out for people like me in you. Like the regular people but I always thought out for themselves. I'm italian and you know. Corruption there has being horrible. So i never really had much faith into the government. However i'm hoping that the human human decency will get back To to rule at least most of our lives. There's now everybody's life but that's so today there is something to celebrate about. Let's hope that after a couple of more months of these horrible human being poor excuse for president in the white house we will have new good things to look forward to not sure about that. But let's they positive so beside that. I am Yeah here trying this thing again. And i am hoping to start to have real episode next week. Probably have to get on monday whenever bars is now partying and and yes. I'm looking forward to to actually start in this. Podcast is new adventure. Well i am probably going to delete this. We had the pilot. We'd have episodes zero so soon. We're gonna have episode one and this will finally officially launch this.
