A single step
In this episode: I talk about how one small decision can change your life - sometimes not for the better. Many of us can trace some life circumstances back to a single poor decision.
I talk about compassion (love, mercy, empathy, compassion, kindness, etc.).
In this episode, I talk more about free-will, comparisons, determinism and purpose.
I discuss tips for doing the important practice of daily mindfulness to achieve a level of freedom from buying in to destructive thoughts.
In this episode: I discuss the difficult topic of addition.
Luck and Misfortune
In this episode: I discuss luck and misfortune. I describe a story of a man who is an example of both - Frane Selak.
Great overall! Good metaphors, content, etc. Although content isn’t traditional or ‘out of the book’ like readings from Zhuangzi or the Dao de Jing. It is more applicable though and breaks down some of the parables, etc. The only thing is pronunciation of various things, like Laozi. They pronounce it (layo-zoo) when in China it is pronounced (la-owe-zoo).
Exactly what I was looking for
I like that this podcast is not trying to be bigger than it is - no bells and whistles - no big personalities- just a soothing, discerning voice sharing big concepts in a concise, practical fashion.
Therapy for those who need it
Good show for self-help, but if you’re looking for a podcasts on traditional Tao, this is not it.
