    Equity

    Equity

    Once we understand the difference between Judgment and Discernment, we understand the difference between Equity and Equality. Whenever I find myself thinking something is unfair, I urge myself to think again using a wider lens that doesn't place me at the center of universe.

    Shortsighted

    Shortsighted

    We claim to fully understand what we have only partially experienced, and we dismiss other people's reality as invalid if it contradicts our own. That's our ego playing tricks on us until we argue and fight to prove that we are right by making someone else wrong. Yogananda called it "Feeling tall by cutting of the heads of other men." The entire concept that you are somehow separate from others is an illusion. We are here to snap out of our self-importance.

    Ceasefire

    Ceasefire

    As long as I think there is a war inside of me, the battle will continue, but struggle is not a requirement. We can call a truce, enter a peace agreement, and stop fighting. If we want inner-peace, we must be peaceful.

Safe harbor in a storm

I discovered this podcast while desperately trying to find my way out of a time of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual distress. There is truth and depth to these discussions, yet they are so digestible and never overwhelming. Perfect for those who need a flicker of soft candlelight to self-reflect by, but aren’t ready to stand under the blazing sun. I love that Timber is so wise, yet also flawed. He is on the path with us, not pretending to be at the end- because there is no end. I’ve listened to every episode, but come back to listen when I lose my way and need help getting started again.
