    The often-bumpy journey to enlightenment, joy and living in our dharma.

    The often-bumpy journey to enlightenment, joy and living in our dharma.

    In episode four of Very Vedic, Matt's student Anna asks about the relevance of joy from the Vedic view, which opened up an interesting discussion about the often bumpy and sometimes traumatic path to enlightenment.

    Matt reveals that as we begin our spiritual journeys, or even if we're decades in, it is common to feel like our state of mind isn't matched to our elevated state of consciousness.

    He explains that if someone is experiencing a darker state of mind as they progress spiritually, then karmically, that is what is most relevant for that individual to evolve.

    Matt and Anna also discuss the Vedic concept of dharma - which loosely translates to purpose. He provides insight into how we can discover our dharma and live a more joyful, useful and fulfilling life.

    This episode stands for the light and shade of our spiritual journeys, and seeks to close the gap between mental health and enlightenment.

    Why spirituality shouldn't be serious, addictions & the spiritual approach to increasing self-discipline.

    Why spirituality shouldn't be serious, addictions & the spiritual approach to increasing self-discipline.

    In episode three of Very Vedic, Matt's student Anna shares a recurring feeling of nostalgia she has for her teenage years, and identifies it's because she had little to no responsibilities. Everything felt fun.

    Spirituality can feel serious and in some practices, demand a rigid sense of responsibility from us, so Anna asks Matt where fun sits in the Vedic worldview.

    He shares that for some of us, we can unintentionally pass judgement on other people's unsustainable life choices when we first embark on our spiritual path - our inner world is beautiful but the outer world seems ignorant.

    He explains this is sometimes referred to as cosmic consciousness blues, and it's actually a hijacking of spiritual advancement by the mistaken intellect because inherent in the deepest of all spiritual teachings, is play.

    Matt and Anna also discuss the Vedic view on death and grief, explore discipline and addiction, and how doing a sacred practice of sacrifice called tapas can increase our state of consciousness.

    Death, acceptance and letting go.

    Death, acceptance and letting go.

    In episode two of Very Vedic, Matt and Anna explore the concept of deletion, and the uncomfortability that comes with letting go of old ideas, emotions and beliefs.

    Anna is meditating, so why does she feel anxious?

    Matt uses Vedic wisdom to explain that what she is experiencing is a resistance to the feeling of discomfort that comes with death - or deletion - of that which is longer relevant to her. And that it's actually an opportunity to heal undigested and unprocessed emotions.

    He explains that meditation is the vehicle that drives out that which is no longer relevant to her personal evolution, and the evolution of all things.

    This episode is a lesson in acceptance. We learn that when we're practicing acceptance, we're actually accessing a higher state of consciousness.

    Matt shares with Anna that when she makes something wrong - a feeling, a situation or an experience - she's actually amplifying the very feeling she's trying to resist feeling. In other words: we suffer in exact proportion to the amount we resist. He gives her practical advice on what to try instead.

    Our mistaken intellect and the underlying forces that control all things.

    Our mistaken intellect and the underlying forces that control all things.

    In episode one of Very Vedic, Matt and his student Anna explore some foundational Vedic concepts that help set up the discussions they'll have moving forward.

    Anna begins by questioning the role of the ego, and asks if it is ever useful to us. Matt goes on to explain that the ego is neutral, but it is the intellect that can become mistaken and cause us to suffer.

    Matt shares that the purpose of Very Vedic is to help us correct our mistaken intellect, and gain an understanding of the true laws of nature.

    The pair also explore the role of the mantra and other Vedic concepts like creation, maintenance and destruction, and the Vedic view on intuition - also known as charm.
