Billion with a B. and was first named by the native people who lived in shadow the called the mountain. Taba meaning son and they were the Tableau Watch meaning people of San Mountain. In eighteen o six, the mountain was quote unquote discovered. By American explorer lieutenant, Zevulon Yuan Pipe. These God I sounds like an alien spaceship guy. On. Doesn't look as cool as his name suggests I'm just GonNa tell you right now he was sent by Thomas Jefferson on a mission to explore the West and upon seeing the Mountain Zevulun apparently swore the mountain would never be conquered by man cars didn't exist yet, but it's safe to assume pike would have included them in his assessment as well. Given the chance it only took fourteen years. To prove old Zebulon Pike. Wrong. The mountain was first scaled by a European in eighteen twenty when Edwin James, a botanist and explorer successfully reached the summit collecting flowers all the way up quote the most notable day of the expedition for botanical collecting. Now, I don't WanNa give all the credit to Edwin. James although it sounds like he had a great time, I'm sure that one of the Taboada probably. Did it before him yeah. One hundred percent. Yeah attaboy watch like a a wildfire up their boot who was just like I'm GonNa Climb that today flowers.

Describing Purple Mountain Majesties above the enameled plane over the years the mountain was commonly referred to as Pike's highest peak before finally being simplified just to pikes peak the next notable American to shape the fate of the mountain was Spencer Penrose, and he also might have been the one to introduce cars. Penrose had a name that sound like the bad guy in a murder mystery but he also had a job that would fit right into the genre. He was a mining speculator of the American West just like a murder mystery penrose had a history that could make you think you is both a suspect and a savior he graduated from Harvard but at the bottom of his class. His father and brothers were doctors and lawyers he decided to travel out west and try to make a name for himself at first he failed before getting a tip about some land near Cripple Creek that made him millions of dollars, and that's million dollars like in the movie this guy is played by Walton Geoghegan's. For sure. That's love that whilst. Yeah. And that's millions of dollars in eighteen hundreds money, which is like a lot today billions today. I Love Walton Gardens he's so. I feel like if I went to Harvard I'd WanNa, graduate the bottom of my class. Look I'm I'm the best on the rowing team but. Not great at socio economics I mean I went to. Harvard. So I'm pretty good at stuff but like I partied penrose settled. Colorado. Springs. The closest town to pikes peak was met a woman named Julie Villiers McMillan although. Penrose was by then in his forty s, he had sworn to stay a rich entrepreneurial bachelor but Macmillan proved to be grimes to his Elon Musk and the two got hitched in traveled to Europe for a lavish honeymoon staying at beautiful resorts around Europe inspired penrose to murder his wife what now?

Seven hundred rooms every night. That's nuts penrose was no fool. He knew he knew that to attract people to the hotel you needed to do things great reviews on tripadvisor, dot com and promotional stunts.

"Hi Matteo. Thank you for having me. It's so nice to have you here. Yes Fun. In reading fierce heart this memoir book. And listening to your teachings. It seems that quite young age you understood the primary role that mind has to play in emotional wellbeing. In, your childhood life, it seems as though it was very, very difficult growing up in the inner city life of poverty and racism, and there were some abandoned men and. And in fact, a lot of violence around you and so my question is, when was it that you began to look inward Lee for your strength rather than blaming the outside world? That's a really, really good question because I think as a child when I was growing up, I did get very confused and I was very interested because the adults around me their behavior and they were suffering so much. So this is very I guess empathetic child. So I could feel what was happening around me I could see the suffering and so that did make. Me Inquire what is causing this and I think I read in the book at just age five years old I turned to my older sister and said, wow, this is gonna be really hard. It's going to be a hard life because I could just see it. You know there wasn't a lot of wisdom we were poor. We were black I was like, okay here we go. There there's you know this is going to be you know a of hill-climb here And I think I just I. Just stayed really interested and as I got older I started to study psychology. Young teenager I got very interested in self-help bugs and Wayne Dyer I was reading in the fifth grade. I read one of his books. How did you come into? Wayne dyers book and were you living in? Compton at the time now we were actually living in a little apartment. We were up in northern California. We had migrated up we back and forth between southern and northern. California and we're in northern California and my mother was depressed and went to the librarian went to the self help section, and of course all back. Then there was Louis. Wayne Tire. And Louis Hayes so I think it was his book you'll believe it when you you'll see it when you believe it. And I remember reading that and I remember saying, yes or something with my mind I knew it and he affirms But I wasn't I. Didn't have the support to go deeper. Obviously I was ten and so but I remember men something like, yes there's something going off my thinking and the people around me, their thoughts it's making them suffer and it's leading to this behavior and addiction, and so the night just continued he knows I got older and older until I really started. Practicing Meditation like Eighteen Nineteen and when when was that that I do you remember the first time you tried meditation. We'll the very first time was when I read. Wayne dyers book and I went in there. Then in there I I the funny thing is I, told my mother was six anyone to go to school. So I played like I was sick to stayed home. and. Had nothing to do at that time our TV was broken and we didn't have money to fix it, and so there was a stack of books that was it and that's let and I tried to practice I. Remember I tried to count down from ten to zero and I couldn't do it. Of course thought came you know I was noticing that and going Oh. Side gave up for that time being but I got really interested a later when I was a part of this church called Gubbay pay here in southern Colorado Beckwith Beckwith who I adore and I've who's been you know great supporter of mine endorsed my book and I started to practice more, and then that led me into different traditional. Hindu. Tradition with Parma's Uganda. Realization Fellowship Centralisation down the street here in Carlsbad. I really got into practice there but then not led me into of the Dharma and I. I long retreat was a day retreat where I learned the pasta meditation, which Cornfield Pasta Meditation Sometimes, a translation is sort of insight meditation insight meditation. What can I before we get there? Can You? Can you describe what led you to the to to that to go on at ten day retreat like why would? Is. Not. Every day that somebody just like is. Packed up and goes to a ten day retreat. So what led you to that we looking for something Well I think when I had joined the self realization fellowship, I was really interested in meditation. I'd read a book somebody left a book on my table, and in this apartment I was living in an Oakland and I opened it and it just. A whole world opened. It was all about meditation. And I realized then that I wanted to live a spiritual life, it was like it was like death rebirth moment and was like goodbye to this. Hello to this. Of course, I want to spiritually based life in years how I do it By circumstances around you where they conducive to that spiritual life. Now I mean, what were you doing? It's crazy town now selling timeshare living with this crazy guy I'm sure. Yeah. Selling timeshares that was smoking weed I. Wasn't you know I had bills. I wasn't responsible everything was you know we're at that time I moved in with him in East Oakland it was just it wasn't good and I got very depressed and self realization fellowship was beautiful. But they didn't have any technique. They just go to these three hour meditation kind of kind of method to apply. Exactly. They would just say love God and I would say, okay, I'm trying but three hours later I didn't know it didn't feel like I was getting where I needed to go. Right? It was like the self realization happening right thought about my issues for three hours. I. Didn't know how to eventually if I sat long enough. Out of sheer to giving up my mind got quiet but I needed I felt as if I needed a teacher, there was an living teacher was just the disciples in the programs that they had it in. You know. So I started praying for a living teacher I need help my brain. Oh, very much I prayed and prayed and prayed, and then sure enough I heard about this ten day retreat in the desert and they said they you. Instructions and there's teachers there and you can talk to them and they're alive. You know it's not just books.
