    #050 — Simple Beings, Complex World (with Chris)

    Hella deep thoughts in this fine episode from three brothers including the legendary Chris as a guest. We fall into a huge pit of deepest thoughts conceivable by human beings, from modern-day ADD to materialism to states of CONSCIOUSNESS and how that's all that matters. Strap-in and be ready for intellectuality on levels never before seen!

    #048 — Being in Love (∗ᵒ̶̶̷̀ω˂̶́∗)੭₎₎̊₊♡

    #048 — Being in Love (∗ᵒ̶̶̷̀ω˂̶́∗)੭₎₎̊₊♡

    This one starts with a (poor) reading from a passage in Yogananda's "Autobiography of a Yogi" in which he breaks down miracles in the most scientific manner possible. We make a connection to how the Law of Attraction may be connected to that (just slow miracles). We also explore a lecture from the late and great Baba Ram Dass on Love and how we get attached to the method through which we get to Love instead of just enjoying the feeling itself. Om.
