Can We Change The Way We Feel About Race?
"Ruth. It's just so great to have you on entangled today. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you. I WANNA. Tell our audience a little bit about your background. You grew up in the late sixties in south central La. It was right in the heart of the civil rights movement. Can you tell us a little bit about some of your observations and feelings during this time? Yes I grew up in south central Los Angeles. I come from a family of eight I have seven civil lanes I actually have five now, and we grew up in a working class neighborhood, and with a single mom. It was very alive in terms of civil rights activities, but it was also very alive with jazz so there was this interesting blend which I really value music a lot because I think it brings the certain creative edge and comfort to some of the struggles around race. At least that was my experience in my family, who were jazz, musicians, and percussionist as well and so there were just a lot of struggle a lot of. Of Hardship, there was a lot of physical violence in in my family. You have to keep your arms around your kids tight. Because somebody could hurt him, somebody could snatch him. Some system could be imposed on them, so I felt that tightness both in the community, but also inside my family and one of the most vivid images from me as a young person around race was watching my great grandmother pace quite a bit. She worried a lot about these black bodies at work in her life, and she couldn't protect them and I think I just saw the wear and tear and the cumulative chronic fatigue that she lived and breathed moment to moment. And I remember how hard it was that I couldn't comfort her and when she died. I think I made some of deal with myself I'm not going out like that. I think my great grandmother would be happy to know I'm doing walking meditation instead of pacing the. Floor so it was an atmosphere of fear and trepidation, not really knowing what's GonNa hit next Alon of sadness and joy what I think mostly an atmosphere of fear that we tried to make the best of. As, the little girl how did you make sensible of this well I don't know if there was any kind of intellectual way that that was happening I felt like my body absorb the lot of what I could make sensitive. So by the time I was twenty seven, I I had open heart surgery from a mitral valve prolapse, but I think it was really because the body was just absorbing so much. That felt pretty unbearable I mean I. Come from people that found a way to be resilient. My people are from slaves trying to deal with mothers having their babies taken from an so. There's been this kind of in the. Way of figuring things out this not so much in the head, and so I think that really work that heart muscle in a big way. At least for me to see, that is a really big turning point for you. Maybe it's like your heart broke. Open exactly I mean I think that it was I came to see a different from a surgical procedure to a more spiritual procedure because I often say, that was my first silent retreat when I woke up from that surgery and could feel the weight in my life. That was really. Really on the inside, sitting on the top of my chest now, and just that whole awareness of what this body was holding, and over time what relief it was to just have a procedure, if you will are an invention on the heart, where I was actually trusting white people with my heart something I didn't really have full access to I. Come from a family. That didn't trust going into. Into doctors and cause a lot of people in my family wanted to the dodgers, and didn't come back all this big story in our community, and so there was a lot of fear, so race was always wrapped around things in my life, there was always a racial way that I had to be concerned with because my body and people that look like me and dark bodies are targets of harm. Harm. I mean that's just kind of the world. We certainly growing up and to some degree we see that with the uprise right now of so much ratio hatred in boldness and rain country
Why 'Cryptocurrency Would Not Exist Without Black People'
"Actually WanNa ask you about this one tweet storm that you wrote and it began. CRYPTOCURRENCY would not exist without blind people. You explain to people what it is. He wrote there yeah, yeah, yeah, absolutely, and this was a talk. That I did at after a while I was even ignorant, so we talk about you know tokenism. You know a continuation of the evolving form of housing transfer body right, and that's from a lot of different different things, different peoples different cultures right, so it's not just say black people are the sole reason why cryptocurrency exist, but it is to say that the prevalence of Fiat currency only came into fruition through the US government in two particular historical instances made this happen one the funding of union troops right during the civil war who desperately needed feet this out at the time, which was one of the economic centers in the world. I don't think people realize how much fuel the cotton and textile. Textile Industry in the loan industries that came off of that globally a really created. Will they accommodate be happy that and created the financial centers like New York in fact back then there were more millionaires per capita. I believe in Mississippi than there were New York and in in this has changed over time in that experiment ride that Abraham Lincoln took in leveraging Fiat currency, which was more broadly understood as we all agree, this has value rather than being backed by or silver like the pound lead into the Nixon years where we quite literally came off the gold standard after establishing it. And this is the history right of how money has evolved in how Tokens Ation where we see the token ization of assets and even you know stable coins in terms of store value money. That, that's the evolution in its follow, and that some of the people the first people who were securitise were also black people We look at Monticello and Thomas Jefferson that was funded trauma loan, collateralized by slaves and also built by slaves. So the complexities in terms of how finances evolve very deeply intertwined into this systemic racism, you know that I call it on and that people you know unfortunately push off as or minimise as a well. They said the inward or well. They didn't let this person into this complex right in. It's really a lot more out. Actually love to be called the inward half systemic racism gone. in in a have the superficial racism right exists I can deal with that mentally and emotionally. You know, but but the constraints of the systemic aspect has quite literally change people's life trajectories in terms of whether they can be an entrepreneur whether they could be hired. How much access to credit they get and how that affects their lively. I don't know if people know this story, but Senator Cory Booker from new. Jersey often talks about this in his life trajectory where. Parents had been looking for a home in a suburb of New Jersey that had good schools, and it was considered a white neighborhood, and they kept being told that these houses that they thought were on sale were not available and this organization I can't remember They must have just worked on like fairness in housing or something. got white people to go as decoys after they had gone to these houses and found that the houses were suddenly available and this. This kept happening and so eventually they picked how they wanted, and when they should have to sign the papers, the sellers were surprised because they thought it was getting a white couple buying it, and that was foul. Corey ended up at you. Know in this great school district. Of course he lake went to Stanford. Was Ruth scholar went to Yale Law School now as a USA I mean he's like you know super successful, but yeah, that's just one story about. How systemic racism or in that case, the the fight against it or winning the fight against it in one instance did have a positive outcome.

Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema
"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.

That's how it works. She put in the time and before long. Elizabeth was not just playing guitar but playing incredibly well in her own unique finger style and she was also writing songs. One Song she wrote when she was just eleven years old was called freight train. If you'd told young Elizabeth that one day decades

Better homes and gardens and the San Francisco Chronicle the author of the old dry garden on the garden and legacy of famed California plants woman. Ruth Bancroft this week. Joanna joins us to talk about her newest book growing weed in the garden. A no fuss seed to stash guide to outdoor cannabis cultivation out now from Abrahams press cannabis in California has been legal for medical use since nineteen ninety-six and in November of Two Thousand Sixteen California. Voters approved the adults use of Marijuana Act to legalize the recreational use of cannabis the use sale and possession of cannabis over a certain level of THC remains illegal under federal US law that said according to a recent report on NPR thirty three US states currently allow for some form of sale and consumption of marijuana and of those more than twenty states have designated the cannabis industry as essential during the corona virus outbreak from her shelter in place with her young family in Berkeley California. Joanna joins us today to shine a brighter light on the often confusing. Growing we'd as Gardiner's welcome Joanna. Thank you so nice to be here back with you. The last time we spoke we were speaking primarily about your first book the Bold Dry Garden and this new book is something of a An adventurous kind of Tangent. Or like offshoot from your original. Garden writing work. I want to start though with your current relationship to plants and the garden world both personal and Professional Joanna. What do you do everyday tell listeners? More about who you are and what you're up to. It is so nice to be talking to you again even just anticipating the conversation that I would be having with. You got me just like thinking about life and anyway thank you. Just thank you for having me. Thank you for making all the room to talk to people about about exactly this. Their relationship to plants I am home now as you know. All non-essential workers are and I am doing the very essential work of raising my son who turns three in July and In a non pandemic situation spends most of his day in a share So we gardened some But it was more like gardening light and now that we're home together. I am gardening heavy and doing with him I salt. I was already going to have a vegetable garden this year. I was already scaling back on the. We'd I'm only really growing at this year to continue to write about it It's a it's a really fun plant to grow et Cetera et CETERA. But I really have this urge to grow fruits and vegetables with my son and so even though that was already going to happen I dug up to maybe like eight by eight feet by thirty inch. Beds right in the middle of our meadow grass to with him to create more space. So as I talked to you he's asleep. There's dirt all over my hands and I'm feeling really really connected to the hard honest Labor of garden creation and it feels so good so good and you. You touched on a couple of things already right there. One being the fact that many of us are home as quote unquote non essential and yet in this moment so many people have turned back to activities and connections that are so essential like our own attachment and connection to how you survive how we make our out. We make our lives not just livings. And that is in raising our families and cultivating art pieces of land. So okay I'M GONNA I'M GONNA have a go back just a little bit before we dig into the structure of the book in in some of these levels on which you got intrigued. Many listeners will remember the bull dry garden. But just for those who. Don't give us a little background on you. Where where were the people? And the places and the plants that grew into a person who would wanna be a person that wrote about gardens and gardening with her son as a matter of both principle and practicality so I got my start farming in college after traveling so really interested in food and food security. I had a very meandering path and ended up in the editorial Test Garden at Sunset Magazine. Back in the Menlo Park days through to the Oakland and New Test Garden in Sonoma's county days and went from outdoors at the magazine to indoors. Writing and editing and timber press reached out to me looking for a bay area writer to write this book idea that they had about Ruth Bancroft S- Garden cactus in dry garden in Walnut Creek California and I pitched myself because I was young and ambitious and so I wrote a book about. Ruth's life and Roots Gardens. She just passed away actually also twenty early twenty eighteen late twenty seventeen at the age of one hundred nine And so just a couple of years before that. I wrote this book about her life and her garden. I think the fun one of the fun things for me as a gardener and garden communicator journalist person is seeing so many come back to gardening and recognize it as this essential thing that it is and that you and I and kind of die. Hard gardeners have has always known. And we've been advocating for now. You also indicated in this first question this sort of interesting Almost conflicted feeling about growing weed. And I think it's a perfect segue into the conversation for us on this on this program. People have been telling me that I should do an episode on weed for the longest time. Because as you note in your introduction to the book it's one of the largest crops in California and many many people are interested in it and it has this deep historical ritualistic medicinal blige intimate like wait and Gravitas to it but that is so blurred by the the other baggage that comes with it that I have stayed away from it until now because I was so compelled by yearbook and the way that you handled that year and maybe it was a little bit more of researching documenting and writing about this project. You took on as a as an assignment not necessarily a personal passion but an assignment and So we really kind of want to get into that the I just WanNa say by the way that your documentation of life at home with your To almost three-year-old Garden intern as you call him on. Instagram has been in total pleasure to watch in. Its true sort of honesty. Raw dirty fingered honesty. Thank you. It's been. It's been a massive creative outlet for me. Yeah Yeah Okay so. Tell us about this book. Why this book how did it happen? What made you decide to take on writing a book about growing weed in twenty seventeen? I had a baby and I was headed back to work You know six ish months later back to Sunset Magazine Garden editor where I thought I'd have the job for the rest of my life Kathy Brazil before me held the position for forty years and I was all set to go back. It was the week before. Maternity leave was over and the place was bought by private equity in lost my job I felt desperate to keep writing and working and reached out to everyone. I've ever written for asking for assignments Just to keep going to feel some forward momentum and a former editor in chief of the magazine. Kitty Morgan Worked at the Chronicle San Francisco Chronicle and I reached out to her until I wanted to write for her you know. The chronicle does garden design edible gardening whatever and She said you have a new baby. I bet you don't have time to do lunch But I may be called her bluff and I was like I totally have time to do lunch and met her for lunch and she. It was right before recreational use went legal and including recreational growing in California. And she was like I have this whole other idea for you. I want you to grow wheat in your backyard and documented as a gardener. I think at that time everyone like it was coming but it still felt even more taboo than it does now. We were all sort of figuring out how to talk about how he felt about cannabis being something that we can talk about and And so I told her I didn't know where to get seeds. And she said emphatically. That's your opening line and it was supposed to be for this part the separate website run by the Co Chronicle called Green State Which has since been folded into the magazine or into the newspaper and it actually got got lost its funding for a while but kitty was so dedicated to me that they ran the series in the food and wine section on Sundays and I worked through this ten part series for them on growing lead in my backyard as a gardener starting from knowing nothing to having a big crash course in the plant yet everything about the naming and needing to forge new contacts. I had I was starting from zero other than my years of experience being garden writer And a gardener no for sunset.
Hello, I'm scared of... crime books!
"I think. That's one of the kind of joys and the drawbacks of crime is zone and it's one of the things that annoys me when people always read pieces in the newspapers whereas it's someone making sweeping generalizations about crime this crime that and actually crime is a huge on. R- it's as big as you know it's like saying fiction is this like of course then some parts of fiction it is but crime spans the gamut from really intensely literary right through to kind of pure page-turners an really like terrifying stuff. That is way too hot for me. I'm quite a REC- readers. I chose reader. Yeah yeah that makes for better things stops me is that I'm like kind of scattered Dr. I'm an ex Christian but for some reason I still it kind of affects like how much I really believe in ghosts which is more people and let me say that your Senate Sky Dateline kind of chills and speak. He stuff like there's quite a lot of playing about with that in my books but what I really don't. I cannot read books that are kind of sold. Like people locked in basements or sexual torture or particularly stuff happening to kids. That's just like my my line You know no shade on people who write that. It's we need to explore all areas of human experience in fiction. And that's fine but it's not what I want to spend my evenings immersing myself in you know when you're not familiar with the genre as you say. Sometimes the jackets can similar when they kind of wildly different types of six and it is a bit of a learning curve. I think finding out sort of which bit because I I also have had this stuff about crime fiction through the ages where it's like often this get letting the thing that is scary in the book as a society. We're a little bit afraid of and that can make change throughout the decades but then it also means that on a personal level of the stuff that you're like I'm quite interested in exploring fair and then other stuff that is enjoyable to explore the new stuff. That's definitely I mean. The classic thing that is always talked about is the fact that the golden age of crime was in between the wars and Agatha Christie was writing all the way through the Second World War and wrote some of her best names route. Twelve books I think during the second mobile without stopping sometimes two books a year and people who wanted to read about this and even in the midst of kind of death and bereavement and destruction and bombs and huge uncertainty. They wanted crime and it becomes. Yeah they sort of. Are they exploring phase safely They wanted to live in a world where the impossible is solved. May Right and where bodies brought to justice. I don't know if there was easy. Onces like I would publish a thesis on it and become a PhD. If it's the same with you but like I say. I think that there's probably a lot misconceptions around crime and just named one of the crime writers that I know apart from nightmare modern switched our Agatha Christie and then shallow stuff like that's the only kind of two touch points a puffer Moton wrenches. The I know like what do you come up against misconceptions at variety forgot anymore misconceptions That you have but like do you come up against those things in the book and what which ones are true and which ones are like. Not Surgery are accurate. I think one thing I sometimes maybe misconception. On the hair is that they. They're not always believable and things. Sometimes people read to escape. Some people read to understand that life or the situational things going on in the world a little bit more and I think there are a lot. I know that there are a lot like that. I think that's not necessarily something I believe. I think that sometimes a bit of misconception that it sort of by so many things can happen to someone in the morning but life I watched enough kind of true crime dramas tonight actually extraordinary things do happen to people. That's why I might see rates because I've always struggled with that exact question of I don't want to write a procedural. I don't want to write about police officer because I don't inhabit that world and it's not my area of expertise and you do run up against the question of realistically. How many bodies can an ordinary person stumble? We're not Jessica Fletcher. We don't like Pandora in Cabot Cove and have a corpse waiting there every single day. So you know something that crime writers struggle with as well but I do. I firmly believe that it is completely possible. Implausible for one terrible unlikely incident to strike people in a lifetime. I think we've all been the victims of those and we know people who've had terrible extraordinary things happen to them so I don't think in itself that's but yet when it happens again and again and again. This is an interesting one because you can say that any genre like pick Saad poetry. And how sad can Waldman really be like you know like a little life is like? That's brutal like I think. We can fly that to to cry when actually we can say that about a lot of German. You're always going to be talking about the extraordinary end of ordinary. Even when you know even when it's just a regular life you're writing about it. In some kind of heightened artificial way. No one writes about life as it really happens because it would be incredibly tedious and full of sequiturs either. That's not how fiction works. We accept that it's a kind of construct but yes how far you'll cater for peds to to follow that construct but do you so. Do you read climate. All right if you read stuff and enjoyed it or you just never really got to grips with that. As as you know I have and I remember when I was younger. My Dad my dad is a big kind of threat breeze all the big American crime office and I remember the get that again. It's I remember picking up because I was on holiday and I ran. We ran out two books and I picked up a Ro Robert Ludlum book and I absolutely loved and for years it was the Sigma Protocol and it was one of my favorite books because it had this kind of I was so gripped by the narrative but also had this kind of the end of real big moral question kind of about ethics and I just found really fascinating but then I didn't pick up another one. So it's it's. It's a bit strange so I don't really know why because the ones I have read. I have enjoyed that. I think I also haven't I work in publishing and a low of my reading is dictated by what I work on. Haven't actually worked with any modern crime. Rights is so I don't know yeah. It's not that I haven't enjoyed them. I just think it's interesting like what we bookshop. What we go towards. Because it's what we see ourselves. I'm like I didn't really see myself as a crime rate even though I've read crime is that thing of like what settles in your head and doesn't right if you were going to pick up the next crime book. Let's find one for eight. What would you be looking for in a crime free Even the book. Yeah gives you elements and we'll diagnose. Okay will somewhere with a real sense of place that I can kind of stand on this because we're not going anywhere right now that we need some vivid sensitive travel escape my falls something historical but maybe more kind of twentieth century historical and something. I do think that raises questions. It makes you think differently about something so I kind of like moral ambiguity in well. I have three suggestions for you. If people are sort of struggling to find their way into genre I sometimes think it's helpful to have sort of stepping stone books. That kind of are not necessarily crime but crime adjacent and a book which I firmly believe is part of the psychological thriller Genre and I would probably be one of the best but isn't usually shoved as that regard it is that is Rebecca by definitely Maury Which I think has the amazing sense of place that you're after Obviously it also literary classics. So it's just a really good book to have read if what is adjusted in literary fiction because it's the touchstone for a lot of kind of literary fiction as well as a lot of crime fiction Another book which again is kind of Paul of the Classic Crime Cannon and I think has the kind of moral questioning and ambiguity. That may be talking about Would be the time. Mister Ripley by Patricia Highsmith She is just wonderful writer full stop. She writes very sparsely. She's amazing at creating character. She plunged irritate and it is a crime novel. You're kind of trying to figure out what's happening whether Ripley's GonNa get caught. But she sort of puts you on the opposite side most crime because you're in Ripley skin and you're rooting for him. Even as he's doing terrible terrible things but you also kind of at the same time want justice to catch up with him but in terms of Morton book which I think takes away your boxes including the historical one. I would highly recommend Alabama cheese Series which is set in the Indian raw and has to fantastic Cactus at the center of it. There's some who's an English man who's been kind of Dropped into colonial India in sort of Typically kind of bossing the locals around and then as he's kind of second in command and sidekicks the not who's an Indian And it's just it's brilliantly done and it tackles some really big questions alongside each time. A really cracking mystery in terms of you. WanNa find out whodunit. You WanNa you the detectives to solve it. You want everyone to be bang to rights but he's really grappling with big twentieth century. Questions that estill dogging us today in terms of the fact that we don't have solutions. These are still things the Iraqi going in the news today. I'm they're just cracking a good races
Coaching Through a Crisis
"So welcome to coaching through adversity. And I'm ruth key predictor and I'm the managing director and also the founder of Champs as already introduced and here is a little about me and my expertise to why I'm here with you today so I've had a long corporate career spanning eighteen years business improvement projects in change management recruitment and talent and inclusion. So there's always been a threat of people in every role I've ever done. And I set up a sham SAI global mental wealth people consulted say back in. Twenty fifteen through my own lived experience of mental ill health and being diagnosed with several anxiety disorders due to burn out and a breakdown at that point and to to really understand more about my my background around why was. I was wanting to work with corporates on. I stood it my. Msa and apply Pasta pastas psychology and coaching psychology and applied positive. Psychology is a fairly new field of research. It's been around for around twenty years. Twenty to thirty years of research there so I in terms of psychology. It is a fairly new field as coaches psychology. Which I'm going to talk to you and little bit about today and when I completed my MSA at the end all twenty thousand nineteen. I focused my dissertation. My research on Post Traumatic Growth and coaching and that is the topic of today's Webinar. I'm also coaching practitioner. So I work with clients on an current into going accreditation with the European Mentoring Coaching Council. And I have a corporate clients. So Champs itself works with predominantly large global clients so many of my coaching clients do come from that space from all levels of Seniority Tae. I'm also a mental health. First Aid Instructor so have they instructor knowledge to be able to train mental health status. And I'm a patron of the U. K. Yanks is he Charity no panic again. My expertise is around the mental health condition of anxiety disorders and as I mentioned at the stocks of this slide hair. I was talking about my reason full starting champs and what I discovered when I was on my eighteen months. Msa was. I'd had been through this journey of post traumatic growth. Although I did not know what that was all at the time. I didn't understand that was why was going through. And as we start to cover these topics you will perhaps into Stein. A little bit of why the May Champs was the the best thing to come out of such dark tie and also the fact. That's I I'm grateful in in cases to have had the experience and this is definitely put me on a life path on a journey. I was not expecting to be on five years ago and for me. The fascination around trauma particularly and the human resilience and adversity TAE skills that we possess is is really fascinating for me to understand and to understand how this phenomenon has impacted others and finally to think about why people saw coaching as a way to move three pain and trauma because often people do seek out coaching rather than perhaps mental health professional support. And this is really a gain some of the topics. I'm going to be kind of covering as we work through through this weapon. So my my reason for starting Champs Wall Street Post Matic Growth and the research. I want to focus on was to understand how that coaching practice could help. Facilitate Post traumatic growth in a client. And what I found was she. Limited research between the two fields as post traumatic growth is fairly new area of research as in line with positive. Psychology and coaches psychology. Again is a fairly new area of research is well so this was very much a a reason for wanting to explore these areas in more detail. So what doesn't kill us? I'm sure you may have heard this phrase before and post traumatic growth. Is the phenomenon off. People experiencing positive change following adversity and it starts to be studied in around the nineteen nineties. looking at people who experience positive change following a period of trauma only a stressful life. Event and niche came up with the The ad age of what doesn't kill US makes stronger and paraphrase but that kind of gives you an indicator that the human spirit The human condition if we if we can get through very difficult dark times we can Survive and become stronger through it and potential growth in human struggle in crisis. Suffering has been recounted really since ancient times. It's only been since around the nineteen thousand. Nine hundred. Research is really started to happen within this failed

Blue told John to go on home but within a few weeks another opportunity came ruth wrote to John and told him that she and Albert were going to a party on Saturday march nineteenth. They were going to bring their daughter nine year old lorraine with with them while they were away the house would be empty. Because Ruth's mother plan to be away on a nursing job.

"Ruth enjoyed confiding in Judd in one letter she he wrote to him about her cousin Ethel Anderson who was also unhappily married. Ethel was trying to bribe young women into flirting with her husband. She wanted to entrap him into having an affair so she could use the evidence of adultery to procure an easy divorce. Route seemed delighted by her cousins Ingenuity Witty as her affair. With judd progressed. She put more and more thought into how she might escape her own marriage. Meanwhile her relationship with Albert remained deeply strained. They often argued about money. Financial stress can be a common source of marital strain rain. A steady by Suntrust Bank found that thirty five percent of participants named money as the primary troublespot with their partner. With the Snyder's there's also argued about ruth staying out late and about how to raise their daughter Ruth one descend eight-year-old Lorraine to a convent boarding in school and she even briefly got door to door sales job with dental supply company to earn money for the tuition but Albert wanted to keep Lorraine in at home and refused to consider the idea of boarding school. Ruth was tired of it. She couldn't stop thinking about how much easier it would be. If he were on her own. She wanted the freedom to live her life as she pleased she was determined to have that freedom no matter what one afternoon in November of nineteen twenty five ruth heard a knock at at the front door and discovered an insurance salesman on her front stoop. Ruth was always friendly with salesman and invited him inside. She said she was is interested in buying insurance but ask the salesman to come back later and give his pitch to her husband. She also had another request. She asks a salesman salesman if he could get her husband to sign a blank policy form. She was unsure how much they would want the policy to cover. She planned to fill in the details of the policy later leader once they came to an agreement on the final amount the salesman was happy to oblige. He returned later in the week and convinced Albert to sign China Blink Policy Application the next day ruth called the sales mental. Let him know that Albert had made a decision. He wanted to purchase riches of fifty thousand dollar policy. It contained an indemnity clause that paid out double in the event of a death by Misadventure Ruth Truth was listed as the beneficiary with the insurance policy in place. Ruth stood to gain as much as one hundred thousand dollars. In the event event of her husband's accidental death. The amount would be worth nearly one point five million dollars today Albert likely. We had no idea ruth had taken out such large policy on his life just as she had done with. Judd's Love Letters. She gave instructions to the postmen to hand and over any envelopes from the insurance company directly to her so that Albert wouldn't see them. Ruth paid the premiums on the policy. The herself even though the expense cost more than half of the weekly allowance Albert gave her to run the household. She figured the cost would be worth the eventual. We'll pay out with the policy in place. Ruth began to think less about how to get a divorce and more about how to become a widow when we return ruthin judd concocted deadly plot to get rid of. Albert's Snyder now back to the story in late nineteen twenty five thirty thirty year old. Ruth Snyder was deeply infatuated with her new lover. thirty-three-year-old Judd Gray. The affair made her all the more eager to be free of her dreary husband. forty-three year old Albert Snyder. After she secured a large insurance policy on her husband's life she had all the more reason to look forward to his demise in fact she seemed ready to engineer his death herself. According according to Albert's family roots first attempt on her husband's life occurred in July of one thousand nine hundred twenty six on a warm summer day Albert was taking a nap in the Living Room Granny Brown was out with Lorraine and ruth left the house to run errands not long after she went out Albert woke. Oh God feeling sick and gagging. The house was filled with gas fumes. He stumbled outside gasping for fresh air when Ruth returned to find him in the garden. She acted horrified. She claimed that as she passed the living room heater she he accidentally kicked the gas tube. Free of the Living Room Wall on her way out the door but it didn't seem like an accident. Albert's sister said that later later the trying to kick the gas to free of the wall and couldn't do it. They thought ruth must have yanked it out on purpose by some accounts. Ruth also made several attempts to poison Albert by pudding by chloride of mercury tablets. In his drinks telling him they would cure his chronic hiccups. The pills didn't kill Albert. The only made him vomit but since hiccups did in fact go away. He apparently apparently didn't question his wife's treatment when poison didn't work ruth reportedly tried to guess Albert again in early nineteen twenty seven. Then she wants more use the excuse that she had kicked the gas tube as she was leaving the house she came home yet again to find him gasping in the street complaining that he had almost as fixated leader at a party with his family members. Albert made an offhand remark about out how close his wife had come to widowhood however he appeared to be joking for whatever reason it didn't occur to him that his wife might actually actually be trying to kill him perhaps because they were ordinary middle-class people living in ordinary middle class life. In Albert's Brits Mundane World Wives complained about their husbands in rare cases. They might even divorce them but they didn't kill them though. The idea might seem absurd according to evolutionary psychologists David Bus. Almost anyone can be capable of murder. Dr Dr Busek said that murder fantasies are incredibly common.

Were there forbearance one for another. I want you to walk in faith and know that jesus is enough for us. Naomi returned from moheb.

She doesn't demand that naomi pay her way. She doesn't isn't demand that. Naomi sell the few possessions possessions possessions that she came with her little bag the little bit of coin knowing that she has she doesn't demand that she give that to her and pay her way no instead she says let me go to the fields and pick the leftover grain behind anyone in whose is i find favour. There was a custom in that day during the barley in the wheat harvest were the maidens could go out and gather the sheaves or the grains of wheat or barley that were dropped by the harvesters. The corners of the fields were to be left unharvested by the harvesters. They were for the poor so naomi saying yes i will i. I will let you go recognizing that. Ruth is in great danger. She may be accosted by some young man. She may be raped. She may be beat up or chaste because she's a more bindis naomi. I'm sure with fear and trembling says to her go ahead my daughter so so she went out and began to glean in the fields behind the harvesters. It was hot sweaty work. Her fingers began to believe elitist there pierced by the short sharps stocks of the barley. This is miserable work it. It takes a great deal together a very small amount but she wants to provide food for her for her mother-in-law. She loves her and she's going to sacrifice everything. She has to care for her mother-in-law. She is not demanding that her mother-in-law take care of her. Now it happens that the field that she was working in and was owned by a very wealthy man who was also from the same clan is naomi's husband elimelech now. When the owner of the field arrives from bethlehem he greets harvesters the lord be with you as was the common greeting of the day the lord bless you. They call back from the field and boas speaks with the foreman. He says who's young woman. Is that the foreman replies. She's the moa oh by this who came back from moab with naomi. She said please let me glean and gather among the sheaves behind the harvesters so this young woman a moebius is very courteous. She doesn't demand the right aac that israelite women have who are poor to go behind the harvesters and to harvest the corners of the field there may have been others doing the same thing but she goes and asks humbly of the love relationship and ruth is showing <unk> who she is. She's not demanding anything. She's coming very courteously. Asking now the foreman reports she went into the field and has worked steadily from morning morning until now except for a short rest in the shelter. She's a worker she's out in that field in that hot sun sweating her fingers sore and pierced. She doesn't give up. She may never never done this before. They were not a poor family. The men supplied all that they needed but now she's out in the hot sun trying trying to find enough food for her mother-in-law so they won't starve boaz. He says to her stay here with my servant girls. Watch the field where the men are harvesting and and follow along after the girls and i've told them in not to touch you and and whenever you're thirsty go and get a drink from the water jars the men have filled wood bows have responded this sway of she had been demanding her rights of course not at this. She bowed down with her face to the ground and she exclaimed. Why have i found such favor in your eyes that you would notice me a foreigner. Would i want you to see is that the very basis of this love. Story is a total absence absence of entitlement a total absence of demand a humility of heart a submission of heart. There is grace all over this young woman. She's not there with naomi for what she can get. She was there because she loves now me and everything. She has everything she she is. She will sacrifice to make sure that naomi is alright. She will love her with all of her heart and she's determined she will go provide for them. She's under no such obligation others us who may know who may know naomi men will come provide for them but no she's not willing the sit and be given charity now.

"To have a very lonely time of it. You're not gonna be able to get along along with your wife or your husband or your family. You're always going to be bickering and fighting because you haven't made a decision to love. Unfailing love is what the scripture calls this soon. The story boas is awakened startled awake and he finds at his feet a woman and he and hushed voice says who are you. I am your servant ruth you notice she doesn't say i am the beautiful woman ruth. She is beautiful woman but her attitude. It is not on the princes. No her attitude is i'm your servant. She said spread the corner our of your garment over me. Since you are kinsman redeemer the lord Which you showed earlier you've not run after the younger men whether rich or poor and now my daughter don't be afraid i will do for you all that you ask those are the words we must hear from the heart of jesus this morning in the early hours. I was up praying in one of you dear brother in jesus. A listener just sent me a text isaiah forty one tin. I'm gonna turn to read this to you it so encouraged my heart. It was like a drink of freshwater and listen to what it says. I said this is god speaking. You are my servant. I have chosen who says you and have not rejected you so do not fear for i am with you. Do not be dismayed for. I am your god. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand hand. It's as though the lord were speaking personally to me. I heard it clearly in my heart as though god were speaking king audibly to me. The scriptures just came alive. It was the voice of boaz to ruth encouraging loving you see boas had also made a decision regardless of what anyone was going to think or say he was going to love this beautiful moa bite woman. He was gonna lay down his life for her. He was going to risk his inheritance for her. The other kinsman redeemer steamer would not risk his inheritance but boas headed different heart as he had watched. This woman worked so hard in the field to take care of his of her mother-in-law grace naomi as he watched her and he he heard how oh she had related to her mother-in-law. His heart began to be drawn to her now. It didn't hurt that she was also so very beautiful but that was not the issue. Boaz could have had almost anybody he wanted. He was a very wealthy man highly respected but somewhere in his heart. He made a decision to love this woman. I wanna tell you there's something that happens in a man or a woman when they make the decision that they are going to love and serve behove before god and before men submit not fight for your rights but follow jesus jesus and let jesus fight for your rights. There's something very beautiful about that. Now i know today in our culture women wanna fight for their rights in the church and they wanna fight for their rights with men and men want to dominate tate. They wanna control none of that's of love. That's all of the wicked human spirit jesus said he would not entrust himself to them because he knew what was an all men and women jesus knows what's in you and whether he decides to give himself to you or not will depend on whether you're willing to come and lay at his feet and say to him. Please please cover me with your arm and i need you. I need you. I said yesterday someone said to me listening to the broadcast. I want jesus. Several people have said that to me. In the last week i want jesus then go lay at his feet. Confess every sin confess every wicked way that you know of repent turn aside from it and wait on the lord and he will come and he'll put his ru over. You and they'll say i've chosen you you my servant. Uh i'll uphold you. I'll carry you. I'll provide for you. What's so amazing is when you don't have what you need and all you can say. Jesus is look lord. This is where i'm at. This is what i need. I just trust you. I trust you because i know you're going to uphold. May you're going to carry me. My eyes are upon upon you jesus. He will never let us down. Jesus has never let me down own. He has been utterly faithful and i made the decision to continue just playing his feet. I love him one day. There's going to be a marriage and what a day that's going to be. I i rejoice just to think about it. Clean white garments made of white linen representing presenting the righteous acts of the saints walking with jesus in glory and power by his blood shed on calvary ovaries tree. We'll boaz goes to the town gate discovers there the kinsman redeemer that his ahead of him as a selfish man who will not risk his estate boas is more than will derail his estate because to tell you the truth ruth in his heart is a treasure more than silver or gold already. His heart loves her so boy as announces to the elders all the people today you are a witness that i have bought naomi all the property of elimelech killian and mahlon and i have have also acquired ruth the moa bias now haunts widow as my wife in order to maintain the name of the dead with his property property or do you understand jesus says i have acquired you. I have acquired you in order to maintain the name of the dead. He has bought all all the you have. He's bought all of your property. He's bought you. He's decided to to make you his wife to love you. Did you catch that. Jesus made a decision to love you. You and nothing can turn him aside from that decision to love you but you can make a decision not to love him to who refuse to go lay at his feet to refuse to ask him to be your kinsman redeemer. You have that right to reject him and walk away way to go after the younger men to go after you own lifestyle to go after wealth. I'm not much of a catch for any woman because all i have to offer is a life of service service to jesus and if a woman doesn't want this humble life of service to jesus. She would never ever want to be with me because i'm sold out to my kinsman redeemer are you. What do you have to offer. What are you offering. Are you laying at the feet of jesus offering him. Everything then. You can't give it to anybody else. It all belongs to the jesus they bless they bless boas and they say you have a homelike. Rachel and leah build up the house of israel. May you be famous in bethlehem through the offspring. The lord gives you buy this young woman. May your your family be like that. Peres whom timour boarded judah you know.

"A brilliant brilliant star shining in the night light was this love caruth had coming out of the dark times of the judges this moa by woman. She made a decision. She made a decision to love. It's not easy to make a decision to love. Sometimes sometimes times are very trying. This mo about woman married one of elimelech sons elimelech died died then her brother-in-law died and she and her husband died or it's difficult difficult. The path for ruth was not easy. I want you to hear what i'm saying today. It is not not easy to sometimes love another person. It takes a decision. I was reviewing in my mind this morning. All of the things that have happened as i walked through this life in the last years yes and i see very clearly decisions are made and based on those decisions. Things was happen. Directions are taken actions are taken responsibility must be taken for those decisions asians and those actions were they based on love. Love is a decision some things that would cause a person to make a decision to love are pushed away and the decision is made to distance. Sometimes there is a depth of understanding standing a depth of of caring in a person's heart that will not allow them to step away to to desert to run la visit choice. It is a decision and for one person they will decide. Yes another person in the same. Identical circumstances will say no. We have these two mobike women or who is stiff necked who will not make the decision to totally unfailingly love. I love this wonderful woman. Naomi grace beauty she. He cuts her family ties. She goes back to her original family pagan ugly in the hopes that she can find a man who will marry her and give her a secure place on the other hand. Ruth has made a decision asian. She is going to love nail me. She is going to love her with oliver hart and so this wonderful vow comes out of this. Don't urged me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go. I will go hello and where you stay. I will stay you see there's no bitterness in her heart or couldn't make this vow because her her heart was is longing for something other than this love with no ming. She wanted something else. Oh she cried tears. There was sadness. There was some sense of closeness and intimacy the she was unwilling to pay that ultimate price and say 'i will love grace. I will love nail me and i will walk with her. Wherever she walks her people will be my people. Listen you or people will be my people. People in your god will be my god where you die. I will die and there. I will be buried. May the lord deal with me. Be it ever so severely if anything nothing but death separate you and me she knew the lord well so did stiff necked orfa ah but stiff necked orfa would not care for the lord sufficiently to go to his his land to bethlehem. She wanted her own world. The world of of paganism mm-hmm and so there is a separation that takes place on that border on the kings highway. No may returns turns and she says don't call me grace. Don't call me beauty. Call me bitter. Call me mara. I went away full. Oh but i came back empty. The lord afflicted me. The almighty has brought misfortune upon me. Yes yes and now naomi is going to have to make a decision. Is she going to love ruth way. Ruth loves her. Is she going to love the lord. The lord loves her. I want you to know today as i share the last part of this story with you. Love visit visit choice anger bitterness hardness of heart. That's all choice to jealousy. Envy pride self entitlement. Those are all decisions asians too but they take us two very different places they separate people they cause zang wish in pain in the heart of many. We don't set a boundary. We set a wall. I won't do that anymore. Anger there're well. You just separated uprated now. You can say i love you. I have affection for you but you made a decision decision not to love. You made a decision to walk away. That's what orphan decided to walk away. My heart is always broken by people who decide to walk away from friendship rather rather than talk about it who would rather walk away then work it out who would rather walk away because they want something else. We'll have that privilege brought free. We can make decisions. They hard decisions for eternity and then god comes into the picture so now they're back in bethlehem. The place of bread she goes to work. Boaz's field boas really likes her a lot. Protect sir mama steps in and give some very wise advice to ruth. She knows ruth. This is a great admirer of boaz. Ruth is made the decision that he is a very honorable and good man. She's likewise kwa very attracted to him. All of this is seen in the eyes. No me tells her exactly exactly what to do. Scrub yourself clean put on your best dress. Puello perfume on you victor here up then go down to where boas is working. He is thrashing the grain watch where he lays down to sleep because he'll sleep there. He doesn't want anyone to come and steal his grain and so he lays down. He's happy in a good mood. She comes in quietly humbly. No pretense no sense of entitlement humble of heart. She comes in and lays at his his feet. Now there are some of you who want other people to come and lay at your feet. You don't wanna live somebody else's. This is beat. You want to be the alpha single. Woman said that to me just recently. She said i'm not gonna marry a man and let him be the head of my house. I'm an alpha. He's gonna have to be second to me and is going to have to have money. I laughed at her. I couldn't help it. I should have cried with such a bitter spirit such a hardness of heart none of that in ruth she had made the decision to be a lover. She was not there for what she could get. She was there for what she could give. She was not expecting naomi her mother-in-law to provide for her. She went out and stood and went to work to provide for her mother-in-law. She was a giver of producer producer worker. A beautiful woman who now comes humbly and lays down at boaz his feet what an awesome picture of what we must do with jesus. Oh what a picture of what we must do. This is a parable. It's not just a love story. It's a parable. It's what we must do with jesus jesus. If we are going to be in relationship with jesus christ. We're going to have to come with no sense of entitlement. We're going to have to lay down at his feet. We're going to have to take a position that i. I need you jesus. I know some of you are very cynical and hard in your heart and you say i don't need anybody. I'm fine just the way i am yet made.

You're interacting with a comment. You're interacting with a thing, this person said, you're interacting with a barbed snarky. Thing, the person's Ted in the comments section. But you haven't met that person you haven't seen where they live. It's screens and handles and quotes and comments. But they're severed from the particulars. These two people on Twitter are going back and forth. Just flinging mud at each other. But neither of them no one thing about the actual flesh and blood life of the other person. No wonder it's making people crazy. It's divorced from the flesh and blood particulars of life. And it's the particulars where we find ourselves in each other in many cases. All you have is the comment isolated from this person's love and their loss. Us and their fear and their hopes and your past in your regrets. All you have are these isolated bits and pieces. No wonder it's making people mental friend of mine. This week was talking about the things he puts on the Interweb and how sometimes people will say horribly nasty things, and sometimes I'll just tight back. Hey, just a reminder, I'm a human. And he said, you wouldn't believe how many people? Immediately changes the tenor of things. So he just got. Hey, just a reminder, you know, on human, how many people be, hey, no problem. Sorry you mean and then it just completely changed the tenor, literally, these machines sever at some level can sever us from the particulars of our humanity. No wonder. It leaves people wondering if we're flying off a cliff, and somebody's what happens when you're sever from the particulars is this person's comment becomes the sum total of there, being they said that they tweeted that in the invitation for all of us is the rediscover our humanity. So these tools can be wonderful, but these machines can also take over and obviously the machines has talked about endlessly. You've heard me talk about how the algorithms are bent towards the absurd ridiculous. The mean the nasty Facebook only knows heat. It has absolutely no radar for good, kind peaceful, it only knows heat. It only knows conflict. It only knows activity and so the ruder the less humane. The more provoking the more degrading that's where the machines all head billions of dollars spent to move things in that direction. So that's the power of an ancient text is. It's like you're learning how to find yourself in that story. So you can find yourself in this person's story, so you can find yourself in that person's story, so that you're more and more connected with your own humanity. You're more and more connected with their humanity. And when you see them do what you do, by the way, one more thought, here, you know what I actually have fifty more thoughts, but let me do one more here. When you read these stories. And your connecting with their humanity. Which if you go far enough into them, you find yourself you go far enough into yourself. You find them what you're doing is your connecting yourself with your own story. And when you read the Ruth story and Ruth is there on the road, and she doesn't seem maybe she's torn, then she's not, or post torn for like two minutes, and then she's like, well I'm outta here. Have safe travels bidder. You're like oh, yeah. Yeah. Or put and Ruth are in the same situation and they choose completely different paths. But here's the thing, here's the thing, what you did. Because if.

"You're going to be an immigrant, you're going to be kind of nobody, and as a woman, and yeah, yeah, yeah. I know I know. And yet. Where you go. I go and your people will be my people, and your God will be mine. God. Yeah. You see by this story, and we're only a couple of verses in do you find yourself anywhere in here ever been displaced because of forces beyond your control ever found yourself with a full life. And then all of a sudden the people around you are gone. They graduated they leave divorce dead. They moved you moved and suddenly, the people who were your people aren't there and you're not home, but you're headed home, your home. But you're headed somewhere else. You find yourself in exile miles from home, because of decisions that you had to make just to survive. It's all here. So Ruth is determined to go with her. So the two women went on until they came to Bethlehem bat Lacombe they came to the house of bread. And when they arrived in Bethlehem the whole town. Town was stirred because of them and the women exclaimed can this be Naomi? Don't call me Naomi. She told them call me Mara, because the almighty Mara means bitter because the almighty has made my life, very bitter. I went away full. So once again, in Bethlehem this village, there would have been all these people who grew up with Naomi, and when the famine hits she and her husband boys, they leave. So these people would have known this healthy vital woman with these kids, and she leaves because they have the strength to leave, and go find food, and yet this bitter woman returns. A widow grieving mother of two sons who have died as well. I went away full, but the Lord has brought me back, empty Naomi's, like, really clear this, this is the fault of the divine the universe. We might say the universe. Is rigged against me? I know who did this, why call me Naomi. The Lord has a flick did me, by the way, she keeps using that word y'all way that's that, that liberation words. So she's like, oh, the one who liberates the one who frees people from wherever they're enslaved to. That's the one that's the one who's caused me. All this pain and heartache. And she says, here, the almighty has brought misfortune upon me so Naomi returned from MOAB accompanied by Ruth the moa bite. That's her name Ruth, the moa bite, her daughter-in-law arriving in bet Lehem as the barley harvest was beginning end of chapter one. I know it's an ancient little four chapter story tucked away there early in the bible. Oh, by the way, a couple of things you might enjoy here. Notice all the dudes die. So it's a story about women. Yeah, it's a story about women and actually chapter to the women all the action is driven by the women. So it's an ancient story thousands of years ago about women and the women are the center of the drama and the women control, and drive, the narrative, by the way, I'll, I'll be honest, we've probably should do chapter two. Next episode with me on this. I'm even sucked in I'm like, wait. We probably need to do chapter two. So if you're thinking, what does the story go? Next episode, we'll explore that nevertheless, for right now. Notice. That this is a story about women. This is story about women travelling in dangerous days. This is what about women going into the unknown. This is about the love in fide -delity between women, this is about loss. This is about a mother and loss..

"So we read it for what it is with no connection through a husband to like a larger clan. She's unprotected, she's vulnerable. She is at, at the risk of all sorts of exploitation. Why would you do that? Why would you do the least sensible? Most dangerous thing and bind yourself on an unknown journey with this old woman who apparently is fairly cranky and bidder to say the least. And what's interesting here is the storyteller. I'm just actually realizing this just right now reading through the storyteller gives you know, help it's like a giant mystery just sitting there, the storyteller is not like, by the way Ruth did this, because she was very clingy or you know what I mean. They're like Ruth had a tragic thing happened to her when she. Seven and she tended to over attach yourself to strong maternal figures. Right. You get nothing all you get is. I'm going with you, you and I are bound together. I don't really care. What dangers are risks? Lie ahead. This is the way forward. Have you ever had that sense? There's some sense within you that there's a journey into the unknown. And the people around you the people closest to you, like, why would you do that? Why would you spend that money? Why would you go there? Why would you pursue those ideas? Why would you leave this job, which is the job you always wanted which pays so well? And the healthcare is amazing and the hours are great. Why would you leave this known for the unknown? In some ways. This is the story of everybody who's ever gone on some sort of hero's journey isn't not all you know. And by the way, the ancient art of mid Rauch is when you take the story, and you pause, and in the gaps in the holes, you just dance with it. You just start throwing stuff against the wall. You see. I mean and in the ancient tradition your love for the text and the tradition was reflected in the passion with which you three yourself into the mid rush into the commentary. So you'd say why does Ruth insist on making this journey? Why does she leave home MOAB and head to this land, which by the way was known for its famine? Right. So this is a place as just recovering from, there's no food, there is that the first place you think hey, I'll go there. And yet at some deep level. It's like you can feel the resonance with your own story. All those times when those around you were making practical arguments for a particular course of action yet someone within you it, something within UN. No, no, I gotta go this way, or those times when you found yourself, bonded with someone and you can't quite figure out why you just know that there's something with them, there's something there with them, and you need to see it through, you need to see where it takes you. There's some deep it's like an internal magnetism some compulsion to see where it goes. But there's been a famine there. I know. But like it's like different gods. It's like different cultures different custom. Maybe it's different languages, like you won't know anybody you'll be like the moa bite widow who used to be married to Naomi's. Son, like do you realize no one's gonna like, really? Like you're going to be like a foreigner..

"You'd be going back to a foreign land. We're good. We're not. You, you owe me nothing. Then she kissed them goodbye. And they wept aloud and they said to her, we'll go back with you to your people, but I only said, return home, why would you come with me? I'm going to have any more sons who could become your husbands, even if I thought there was still hope for me even if I had a. Husband tonight, and then gave birth Tucson's, by the way. This is funny. Ancient funny, but funny, she essentially now me like even if I got married like tonight and we had sex, and I got pregnant, and then I gave birth to sons would you wait until they grew up. Would you remain unmarried for them? You're gonna wait around for my those young sons to grow up. No, it's more bitter for me than for you because Lord's hand has turned against me. So Naomi's headed home. But for her this trauma, this loss. Her husband, her sons, it has shaped the whole way, she sees everything. I know you know what I'm talking about you go through loss. He go through betrayal you go through intense criticism you go through somebody stabs you in the back you go through the death of a loved one. Somebody. Leaves you, you find out. They've been on faith all that. And it shapes the whole way you see everything. It's like Naomi's going this whole thing. This whole thing is upside down, the whole thing is stacked against me at this. They wept aloud then or PA kissed her mother-in-law goodbye, but Ruth clung to her. So look said Naomi look, Ruth, your sister-in-law's going back to her people in her gods. Go back with her, but Ruth replied, don't urge me to leave you or to turn back from you, where you go. I will go and where you stay. I will stay and your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. And where are you die? I will die and there I will be buried. So may the Lord deal with me be at ever. So severely, if even death separates you and me you wonder if Naomi was like seriously. Pump the brakes Ruth. This is a bit over the top by the way, I'm sure you've heard these words. This is classic I think, is weddings, where this often gets quoted when they only realized that Ruth was determined to go with her. She stopped urging her now think about what the storyteller is doing. Here. There is the there's the words, but then there are not the words why it's almost like or pu- is the practical one. She's like, why would we go with this bitter old woman back to land. We've never lived in when the connection we had with her was our husbands, and our husbands are dead. It's almost like or does the very practical realistic pragmatic thing, and it's like okay, you know, I kept bit, but okay. Naomi PC with you. I'm going back to my mother's home where I like I'm going home. But what's really interesting here is Ruth. Has the opposite response? She would rather follow this woman. And leave home. And head into the unknown. Which, obviously was deeply counter, cultural, nobody would especially a woman who? In those days in those times in those places legal rights were next to nothing and without some marital connection to once again, patriarchal society..

Are you with me on this to five and we're having more fun than ever? So there's like this. I don't know three week period each year. When the people I love the most we party. Oh, my word. So if I sound a little loopy or if I just sound a little floaty. It's because we're right in that window of time. And what else? Oh. Tour. I'm headed in a couple of weeks to Louisville Chattanooga and Knoxville come on. I have this first part of this year, I've been going to cities that I pretty much didn't go to last year. And I by the way, I love going to cities where people say, wait, why did you come here? That is the best.

Bristol mayor remind you, which is where banks is from Manchester. And then I'm doing three nights in Edinburgh Scotland, which is one of my favorite cities in the world. So hopefully I'm coming your way in the next few months. Oh, and also. I love talking about the art and science of communicating. And especially when somebody's stuck, they're working on something. Something that's within they need to say. Or they're in some setting where they need to say things. I absolutely love watching people get unstuck and figure out how to take whatever it is that sort of burning within them an idea and give it shape and form. So I've done these workshops over the years called something to say, and there's actually, like I dunno set. It's seven hours and forty five minutes is long form. Audio I did my site, which is all about the art of communicating. But I'm doing some more two days two days in August, and then two days in October, which are like, workshops, for those of you who communicate in some way. And I got all this new things I wanna talk about all this new content and new ways to think about how we give expression to the things that are within us. So we just put up tickets for that. And of course, it's always more fun when you're there. So there's a couple of things that are coming up that. You can be a part of but, you know, right now, it's episode two four three and it's called you and me and Ruth. So I wanna try something here and we'll see if it works, which is kind of how I feel about everything that I get to do which is we'll see. We'll see what happens, but I want to read you the first part of an ancient story, and I want to give you a we're going to read it in a particular way because I want to show you something that can happen in the way that you read something in encounter, it and interact with it, and then I wanna move from that to the world that we find ourselves in. And is there something there that is actually? Desperately needed, and I realize now that, that sort of like the most vague up everywhere. But hopefully in a moment here this will all be crystal clear. So, and I know you're already like, okay, where are you going to be in the bible? There's this book called Ruth, so you have the first five books of the bible Torah, then you have Joshua judges Ruth which is my favourite Lyle Lovett album by far, but Joshua judges Ruth Ruth. Is this little book? It's and can you hear the actual pages turning of an actual paper book? It's. Four chapters and. It's this story..
