An open doorway, a conversation with a friend
"Hello it's ron today. We don't have a regular meditative story instead. I've written a special meditation based on stories from my own life. It's just something. I want to share before we start. I'm sending appreciation to salesforce for their sponsorship of meditative story while you may know them for their role in bringing companies and customers together. Salesforce office works to improve the state of the world by sharing the stories of leaders who are making positive changes. They believed in meditative story before we had first listener. Okay let's get going. So i'm thinking a lot about transitions. The temperature dropping seasons shift winter starting to bite one year clicking into the next closer to home the city where i live moving from one level of restriction to another class. He's still my son no longer just a child but a school child. He's just finished his term in school. Having transition seamlessly into the routine of monday to friday life he's loving the lining and it's a daily delighted to see him soaking tolan but part of me dismissed the naivety of by excitement when i dropped him off in the morning. It's the right kind of infectious. Had already ruffled and blue school blazer. Size too big for him. His little body alive and upright is smile ready his head loose on the top of his spine looking for the best friend to run up to watch out. We're going to make some mischief daddy. So let's start a meditation time together by embedding on's little big energy back upright bring alertness and vivacity the head sitting soft hosting a smile. Soft open but alive and ready for connection I've made a thing of transitions in my day. Especially the big ones. If you arrive home from work in our cafo you can pick all the stresses and drama foam your workplace into the first conversation you have with your partner or your first interaction her. At least i can act of walking through the doors reminder to reset to give my family the gift professionals like i suspect many of you this year. Many the thresholds which allow these transitions to happen have collapsed. Going from work to home is now just a spin of the home of his check space. We work workout. Eat out for much of the year has all been the same though. Natural transitions of the commute. The school run the front door. I guess much. Those transitions thresholds. There's limited amounts. I need them. My winds of change spaces starting again spaces where i find dressed and without the crash. Avoid being on where. I find my best ideas. So i've taken to building them engineering thresholds halls walking out of the house at the end of the workday. So i can enter it again as a family space a little rituals invisible to the naked eye the holding of a cereal bowl into hans votive along glass of water. And you start each to away in my house portal. So let's pay attention to the small transitions. The ones whose potential is always hair sometimes overlooked the place where the in breath and the out breath meet. Yes it's subtle but there is a spot a moment a no thing Breathing switches directions. In fact there are two. Let's see if you can find one the one at the end of the in breath and before the out breath is easiest to see if you can put your attention here at the turning point of the breath after the knbr fans and before the ad breath begins

Trump has slap tariffs on China for unfair trade practices and blames. Blames China for not alerting the world to the corona virus. It's a shame that it happened. It shouldn't have happened.

"Grace what's your first question for a bash. St Can you tell me about your job? What is it typical daylight who I liked that question so my typical day starts really early in the morning because I teach my students before school at an ice rink. So get up at about four o'clock and I'm on the ice four in the morning or in the morning four in the morning four in the morning. It's very quiet. And then we head to the rink. I warm up my students first and foremost and then I'm on the ice teaching them from five. Am till about seven forty five. Wow how did you get involved in ice skating introduce skate when you're a kid I did? I started skating because I saw Tolan Dean. How're British ice dancers on television? And I nagged my parents to take me to the ice rink and I started skating when I was three. Wow there's a four in the morning and there's three year old on skates. I'm learning a lot today. Okay grace back to you NIA. Is there something you really love about your job well? I used to ice skate when I was younger. So what I love is watching. People do the moves that I couldn't do like I could never do a triple toe loop and seeing that. You know three times a year at the competitions that I judge is really exciting and just seeing all the families come together and to really nice culture and environment to be in to be able to escape for your job it helps. I mean I think the big part of the trainee is to not get too emotional about the performances. Because when you're watching somebody do something. Really incredible like a like a a triple Lutz. Or something you know you're you get really pumped up. The music is driving. You and you really can't show any emotion when you're a judge because you've got parents surrounding you and they really want their kids to do really well. So if you look like you're favoring one person in the other That's really bad so you have to try to stay as neutral and professionals possible fast. Is there a skater? Who IN SPIDER? You UAE definitely? I was very inspired by escape at Cold Suray abundantly. She was a French figure skater and she really changed the game with figure skating because she was what we call a rebel so she did a few illegal elements like the backflip competition. And she always will the coolest costumes and she had really colorful makeup and she really broke boundaries. In what we'll figure skating was so I really looked up to her. I thought she was really cool. She was also the first one to do it on ice. No I don't think she was. All carpeted different sport. Fash can you tell me about the different jumps in figure skating? How are they different? Well jumps a kind of graded in terms of how many revolutions you do. What Direction you take off. So everything starts with the waltz jump which is half a revolution which is about one eighty degrees and that takes a Ford and then you land backwards then you progress to a South Cal. I call it a sad cow. Well you do a full three sixty. Before you do your one eighty so jumps have different takeoffs and different landing. Sometimes you'll land jump in the position to take off for another jump which is called a jump combination. The hardest jump is a Lutts because you go into it one direction and then you pivot use your topic and you jump the other direction loop jump is probably my favorite jump ego from backwards backwards and you use your edge. Not Your Toe Pick. Neil what is the most surprising thing you've learned about ice skating? Guess what surprised me as well a while ago if you know but They change the scoring system so it used to be out of six points and now it can be up to three hundred points. So there's a table of different moves you can do like vastly mentioned a flip. Sal Cow Lutts. There's a toeloop. All of these different moves have a different man. Points scale values trite. And so you have to. There's a a table and that table changes over time and that's something that I'm still getting used to because every year I have to get trained and re certified to be an ice skating judge. So that's something that's always something I have to keep learning and keep up to date on five state. Can you tell me about what were the first gates made out of the first skates were made out of bones? They weren't very versatile. And when these first gators were on the ice it wasn't autistic or they weren't dancing sheely just to get from A to B Neil. Do you have to train to become a judge? Good question great question so the first thing is it helps to have skate experience. You don't have to be at an Olympic level but at least at college really helps you have to take some tests that show that you know as Russia saying what what a what a flip is You you need to know the what side of the edge that you're looking for so two edges on On escaped the left edge right edge and so knowing what side the skater is skating on You you can really Take no on. How precise and how Could QUALITY THAT. Kinda jump is.
Modern Time Slips
"Today. Something a little bit different on this podcast. Generally science is acknowledged as something. Let's say a discovery of something and it can be replicated and therefore it is based in scientific fact and the pseudoscience is usually explained away as a simple single phenomena that can't be captured reproduced. So I have on this. PODCAST is a series of modern day. A or modern time time slips began with a white Ford pickup that pulled up to a cattle pasture near Pona City City Oklahoma. This was early in the fall of Nineteen seventy-one if stopped at the gate. Carl Marc and Gordon worked for cattle feed distributor. Were sent to this remote area to pick up a theater but they found their has kept them silent for forty one years. Carl says we opened the gate. which had barb orb wire with no locks and we entered? We went onto the property which was covered with grass up to in some cases over the truck. They drove through grass. Ask to the tank that sat close to Red Barn and got Outta the truck. We realize the tank was almost half full and too heavy to load. Carl said we. We decided to leave and drove around a Red Barn and there. We saw a large two story White House with no lights in front of us. The trio drove back to the cattle feed company and told the boss. He said he'd drained the tank and they could pick it up tomorrow. Carl says we went back to the location to retrieve the a tank the next night he said this time we decided to go through the old white big house on the hill and we brought our flashlights and shotguns. Just in case they they drove onto the property over the past. They've made through the day before they loaded the tank then they pulled around the bar toward the house what they saw burned into their memories. It was no longer there. Carl said we walked up the hill where it stood and there were no signs of demolition no foundation. There's nothing at all what we all seem to witness the night before was no longer there. We've talked to each other over the years but none of us can explain mine division. Did these men witness a time slip. Time slips have been reported throughout history and English women. Vacationing in France Franson one thousand. Nine hundred one claimed they stepped into the French Revolution. The two couples traveling in Spain in the Nineteen Seventies stated an oddly archaic. The hotel. There was simply gone on their return journey. Physicists like Albert Einstein Michio Kaku and Stephen Hawkins have have all said time. Travel is theoretically possible. Our science just can't achieve it but what if nature can another example the light in the sky shown shown white far from the Greens and the reds at Jigsaw during the Aurora Borealis of two thousand four visible in North America as far as the Lower Midwest West Jake fifteen stood outside his parents home in the lake of the ozarks Missouri around ten PM. Twenty eighth of May leaning against a truck rock looking at the lights. He didn't know his life was about to change a bright white glow suddenly filled the northern horizon this look nothing like the the northern lights the Aurora Borealis nor did it behave like that the lights move like the light of a copy machine. The single bar brightness move from west to east over Jake's head and disappeared. I thought that I should maybe go inside at this time and found myself. Unable to move he said Novenas grew in his arms and legs and he blocked out when he woke. He knew he'd been somewhere else. I felt woozy and almost dated. Said time seem muddled in my head. Had He walked into the House to find he'd been outside an hour. It took most of the night for him to tell us parents what happened. Most of the time I kept telling them that I thought the calendar was wrong. It should at least be after two thousand eight he said to this day. My mother remembers bits of this mainly because I looked at her and asked pointblank. Is that black man. Still President. What happened to j seizures psychological phenomenon or did did jake accidentally take a brief four years step forward from two thousand four hundred to two thousand eight Jake slip is just one in a long long line of stories from people who brushed against a different time such as an RAF pilots are victor good ard who encountered airplanes in nineteen eighteen thirty five that didn't exist until nineteen thirty nine one hundred year old Swiss watch found in a Chinese Ming Dynasty Tomb? People may I slipped like this all the time Duncan cal opened the door of his nineteen ninety nine Chevrolet s ten next to a convenience store gas pump trump in Springfield Missouri. Large man accosted him as I left the gas station. Some large melon-headed man dressed in a business suit yelled what year is this. Kel- set the man stood at a spot kill would've walked by when he left the store but he hadn't seen him demand wore dark black suit suit with a rough fiber texture. Kill said along the lines of things in the Teddy Roosevelt era. What year is this? The man yelled again. The the man was white about thirty five or forty years old clean-shaven normal but he asked an odd question. Carol said two thousand three CAL cal. Tolan the man's face contorted anger. What year is it? He screamed at yet cal again. I said two thousand three. The large man screamed the question. One more time I said two thousand three so he could hear me. Cal said then he quit asking. Kelly glanced away from the man as he slid into Swiss truck but safely inside he turned to get another luck and the man was gone. He disappeared from the front of the gas station. Cal said in the Second Institute held to slip into his truck demand simply vanished cal put. The man hadn't stepped inside the store the only place he could have gone in that short amount of the time he was gone.

Find Another Way
"I think most people underestimate, how much creativity is required in sales in yesterday's tip. Liz Tolan talked about picking up the phone and getting to the no. And the real reason issues that are in the way. And that's just one place where this creativity has to click in whether it's a challenge you run across in the middle of your sales process, or just a challenge in your life. That's getting in the way, if you get creative, you can find another way, the trick is to stay open minded and to quote Alex shoot men again to see things for what they are, but not worse than they are. Meaning you can't get paralyzed by obstacles instead, you've got to look at them, objectively and then start looking for a way around them. Can you remove the obstacle? Do you need to go through it around it under? It there's almost always a way to get to the other side. Stay, calm evaluate the situation objectively get creative, and find another way.
Understand Your Own Style and Trust Yourself
"Today. We just released a brand new episode on the sales success stories podcast. So I've got a short, but valuable taste for you. From my interview with Liz Tolan charge a five top strategic account executive while. I think the most important decision was to for for where I am right now is to say, yes and apply. And I think that in and of itself as a huge lesson for all of us, right? Because every opportunity that you don't take is automatically. No, right. So everything that you say no to or that you're afraid to try is a loss of something on the backside because you're never gonna know what you're missing, and what you could have learned out of an experience. So I think that's probably the the biggest decision of where I am right. This very minute in terms of lessons lessons learned you know, in my earlier sales career if we go back. To that to that getting a no, right? That was that was pretty hard. And in it. I it wasn't the greatest right? There were other other sales folk that had come in and they were experienced sellers. And I was watching them just do all these things and closed deals and they'd seem so smooth. And I just wasn't there. A I felt considerably more disjointed and couldn't figure out how they could just flow thing so easily, but I think that's part of discovering who you are as salesperson is understanding your own style and not trying to mimic and be someone else because they are not you and you're not them and so trusting in your own flow and your own abilities and developing your own rhythm. I, and I think that's probably the biggest lesson for me was was to learn to trust myself and develop those pieces that I needed to develop

A goal is to add ten whales in ten years to the seventy eight remaining southern resident orcas Corwin Hake. Komo news. You've heard for weeks that a caravan of migrants from Central America is headed toward the US Mexico border also headed that way. But starting in Ann Arbor Michigan was a caravan of clergy and congregations from Jewish temples across the country. Leading the effort was rabbi. Miriam Tolan chiampou grew up in the Seattle area. She wanted to witness for herself how dire situation this really was and to perform some acts of service upon arriving at the El Paso Border. They made their intentions known to the local ice agents. The rules, and we had to do on the on the whiteboard. It said be the killer rabbit Monty python reference, and I didn't really understand what was happening. But it was something that we should see it. So there was this is this very aggressive feeling here that killer rabbit in Monty python lunges at the throats of all who approached killing them, regardless of who they are what they're intentions might be. When they arrived at the bridge to cross the border into Mexico. It was barb wire is there was a helicopter circled the entire time that we were out there it it didn't feel welcoming. But it also wasn't scary. And she said crossing back into the US was easy. No crowds. No caravan as far as the rabbi could see, but they could see what other migrants left behind the border, gorgeous, Kapiti art, really. And it looks to me like the Berlin Wall some of the things that at key work things like. Happen on this side of the border to one says, this is the Berlin Wall, and it it looks like that if you've ever seen it some of those who created the art undoubtedly made it into the US they would be processed at a center in tornado. Where rabbi Berlin champs group went to volunteer. The kind of place where families had previously been separated the rabbis group wasn't allowed to see where some of the teenagers were sent. But they did spend time with parents and their young children runny noses because they've been walking for days, and it's cold here at night and being textual these basic diseases that you get checked at school, but they don't have because are in different conditions. If she said the kids in their parents want basic things a medical screening, maybe some underwear ninety five pounds of which the rabbis group brought with them. Scary people by any stretch imagination. And I knew I knew that you can't really what other people say about what happens anywhere in the world. And certainly that was show here to sing with my own eyes. He's babies these mothers and fathers and the young young children staying in this huge room and trying for a better life.
