Excellent

Practicing Human is a fantastic podcast!! I continue to get great, relevant information, valuable suggestions and down to earth wisdom and just plain good content! I love Cory’s “realness”. I also love that these are short and to the point podcasts. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

I am blessed to have the opportunity every day to listen to the amazing person who can write this for a podcast:
“...Maybe you are dust. Maybe we are all dust blowing around in endless cosmos without order, reason, or meaning, but you still feel pain if you fall down, you still feel joy when you connect with a friend, you still get to taste the sweetness of a peach, you still get to dream, and you still have love in all its many forms it takes.

Wisdom might show us that we are nothing, but love show us we are everything. But if you are dust, it’s the most incredible thing there is...”

Episode 183 - If We’re Only Star Dust, Why Do Anything.

Short tidbits go a long way

I’ve taken a very long temp job working 8 pm - 8 am, 6 days a week. Unable to meditate (because I need to be conscientious of various things) a friend suggested I try walking meditation and somehow I stumbled upon this podcast. I love the easy, straight forward flow of each podcast, shared in such a way that you feel a friend who truly cares about you is speaking with you, sharing insights to give you pause and make you think, ponder, accept and/or adjust the way you have thought or accepted as true. I don’t review often, yet here I am. Beyond worth spending time listening to these podcasts. Should have done it yesterday in fact. 😉
