142 - Wisdom and Fear
"Some see something to fear where there is nothing to fear, and some see nothing to fear where there is something to fear." In this episode, I will talk about fear from a Buddhist perspective. Fear is universal but there are perhaps some fears that are skillful and others that are unskilful.

Words couldn’t thank you enough
Thank you for taking the time to put together this podcast. Your words are amazing and have helped me understand Buddhism in layman’s terms.
What a beautiful podcast!
Thank you Noah for your soothing, calming, insightful and loving podcast. Your podcast is educational and kind and has helped me through some difficult moments. Thank you 🙏🏼❤️
The podcast that changes your life!!!
I can not overstate how much this podcast has grown me as a friend, brother, son, employee, seeker of truth, and as a person in general. The episode about “Parable of the Raft” helped me make sense of a long term relationship that ended in an ugly separation by leaving me for another guy. One of the most difficult moments of my life and this podcast helped me mature from that experience and see it in ways I never would have imagined to come out of it in a more stable and understanding state of mind.
Thank you so much for all you do!
