Can We Ever Go Home Again?

Can We Ever Go Home Again?

In today’s episode, we look at questions of relevance, identity and re-visiting old ways of being. Is it possible to ever go home again? What are we really looking for?

 

In This Episode:

  • Divine Spectacle:
    • We play with the idea of returning to an old way of being.
    • We look at how our feelings of irrelevance and the opportunity for a certain outcome might be at play.
  • The Sacred Mind: 
    • We explore the Buddhist’s view of impermanence and the static self as the key to our suffering and desire to return ‘home’.
    • We look at the Toltec view of self-importance and why our relevance does not matter in the first place.
    • The great paradox where everything is meaningful and meaningless and how we reconcile these two truths.
  • It’s Worth Your Time:
    • Meghan Daum’s book: The Problem with Everything: My Journey Through the New Culture Wars
    • This book gives a GenXer’s perspective on the current climate of identity politics, feminism, victimhood, and the cancel culture.
    • She assists the reader in not only understanding the generational divide but helps people have more compassion for ourselves and others as we navigate our own questions of relevance.
Diminishing Other’s Sovereignty

Diminishing Other’s Sovereignty

What are the ways that we diminish the personal sovereignty of others? How do we diminish our own? Join us as we explore multiple perspectives on what it means to be sovereign and how this might be the lynchpin of our personal evolution.

 

In This Podcast:

  • Divine Spectacle Segment
    • We explore the two ways we give up our sovereignty, either by diminishing another’s or diminishing our own.
    • Looking at why taking pity on someone gives them an added obstacle to overcome and without all the information may unnecessarily make them a victim.
  • Sacred Mind
    • We explore the power of conscious choice as the true path of our awakening.
    • How the question: What do I choose now? can be a powerful perspective in any challenge.
  • It’s Worth Your Time
    • We look at Jordan Greenhall’s framework for sovereignty that he talks about on the podcast Neurohacker Collective.  He defines sovereignty as your capacity to be an effective agent in the world. And he outlines 4 components that allow you to enhance this capacity.
