Almost Enlightened is a show about discovery. Reflection is the lens through which the host, Alex, takes you on a journey of thought and emotion. Intertwining observation and experience, Alex's reflections are certainly thought provoking, often times eliciting a panoply of conflicting emotions. That's natural and that's deliberate. If you're interested in seeing life from a variety of perspectives; if you're interested in developing an ability to think for yourself, then this is the show for you! This is different. Are you okay with different?
The Institution of Gift Giving
Do you hate being manipulated by institutions that make you feel forced into gift giving? I do. So I wrote a podcast episode about it. It's a gift to myself; and maybe for you too.
Beliefs and Behaviours
I had a revelation the other night: I can't keep thinking and acting the way I've been thinking and acting. My thinking and acting just don't line-up with what I believe anymore. So I guess it's time to make some changes. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Growth - Who Does the Growing?
Inspired by a fit of frustration the night before writing and recording this episode, Alex muses on the topic of growth and what's really happening when we observe growth.
Life at Seven, Featuring Noah Morin
Noah Morin joins his dad for a special 50th episode edition filled with the energy of innocence and clarity.
This episode was going to be called, "The End." But then that all changed and Alex decided on something else. Enjoy what might have been his very last podcast episode on this platform as he takes you on a journey through his thoughts on what a matrix is, how one's created, what they do, how to escape one, and other fascinating thoughts.
Fixing a Broken Education System with Michael Maloney
Why do we put-up with an education system that systematically ignores solutions to illiteracy and innumeracy? Are we being duped by a system in which there are advantages to having an illiterate population? Illiteracy and innumeracy are forms of academic child abuse that pose a threat to our democratic freedom. It's time for change.
Join esteemed guest Michael Maloney for a bewildering journey into the maniacal education system that's in dire need of a reset.
