    115: Study Less, Do More: The Surprising Truths IFS Revealed

    115: Study Less, Do More: The Surprising Truths IFS Revealed

    I've now been studying Internal Family Systems (IFS) for a long time, and it's taught me so much about myself that I decided to take an online course on it. But I don't really want to learn more about IFS to know IFS. I want to learn more about IFS so I can use it for my own inner work. And so rather than mastering the theory of more aspects of IFS, I decided to instead really focus on applying what I learned to myself, and just do one exercise I found particularly helpful again and again—and it led to some surprising discoveries about myself.

    114: Don’t Try to Become. You Already Are.

    114: Don’t Try to Become. You Already Are.

    A lot of spiritual practices try to teach you to become something or someone else, achieve a certain state of being. But you don't need that. Inner work is not about getting to some magical place where everything will be different. It's about living your own truth.
    You already are what you need to become. You already know what you need to know.

    113: Michael Ende’s Weird Short Story: Einer langen Reise Ziel

    We chat about a surreal short story by Michael Ende named "Einer langen Reise Ziel" (Destination of a Long Journey). It's the first story in his collection of short stories called Das Gefängnis der Freiheit (Prison of Freedom), and how "search and you shall find" might sometimes mean something very different from what we commonly assume.

    111: Tricks of the Mind: I Was Thinking My Feelings

    111: Tricks of the Mind: I Was Thinking My Feelings

    I've always been a very cerebral person, relying primarily on my intellect to achieve my goals and solve problems I encounter. For a very long time, I equated the mind with myself. I viewed the body as a vehicle that just carries my mind. But as I started getting more in touch with my feelings, I also started paying more attention to my body—and began to realize that it's so much more than just a vehicle. The body has it's own wisdom.
    Recently I decided to pay more attention to what my body tells me—and soon caught my mind pretending to be my body. 
    When you bring mind, body, and soul in harmony, when you connect the different parts within you, then you also become whole and feel more connected with everything around you.

    110: What’s the Difference Between Presence and Awareness?

    110: What’s the Difference Between Presence and Awareness?

    I've often used the words presence and awareness interchangeably—but they're really not. They're two distinctly different things, and in this episode, I discuss the difference, and talk about my recent experiments with awareness.
