Let’s talk about that grey area between sticking up your favourite motivational quote and the journey to your goals.
The Immortal Ghost; ft Stanley Rashai (Outlandish Visuals) - Far From Eden Podcast
Immortality and self discovery using "Immortal" by Joe Budden and "Ghost" from the hit TV series Power.
On this episode Stanley Rashai (@outlandish_visuals) takes us through his ongoing journey with mental health and the role relationships, purpose and spiritual beliefs play, as well as the overall settling in the grey area of identity.
We chat through mental health for men in a broader context, which is an area Stanley has been tackling actively through his own content. He has been making great strides towards creating safe places to help alleviate the lack of conversation around it. (Follow him @outlandish_visuals for updates on that).
Trigger warning: suicide
"Throw a grenade in exactly the spot you were standing in, and jump... it is the momentum of last resort" vs "Good things take time."~Katya Guryeva
Balance. We are all told that good things take time, but we are also told that fortune favours the brave. On this episode we discuss two quotes: "When you are truly stuck, when you have stood still in the same spot for too long, you throw a grenade in exactly the spot you were standing in, and jump, and pray it is the momentum of last resort." vs "Good things take time." Join us as we explore how to know when it's the right time to do either, both or when not knowing is the best for you.
"You will never see a U-Haul behind a hearse."~David Markwei
Mortality is ultimately a scary aspect, but by the end of the episode we had gathered that it should be much easier to navigate than we make it. David talks us through what this quote means to him in his day to day and how he's made his peace with the idea of a ticking clock.
"Protect your peace at all costs"~Lerato Dube
Chaos can feel like a mental prison, and we don't always know how to escape it. On this episode, Lerato shares a little about how she broke herself free, and the day-to-day challenge of trying to maintain the peace she has since found within her environment, interactions and thoughts.
"Those who have discipline are truly free, those who don't are slaves to their desires"~TK Chisvo
"We don't rise to the level of our aspiration-we fall to the level of our systems..." Discipline is a tough aspect to work towards, and during this episode, TK really goes into the necessity of mastering it, but also walks us through the challenges we face that make it hard to achieve it.
Episode 2-"To be Vulnerable is to be Free"~Maverick
We often think of vulnerability as scary-but could it be freeing? Maverick thinks so, and on this episode walks Michelle through his rationale behind embracing that perspective and the process to implementing it into his day-to-day.
