    Chapter Sixteen, Epilogue | I am Allowed

    In the last chapter of the season, there was still another discovery to be examined. The surprise realization a new affirmation brings, uncovers an even deeper layer of healing and understanding. While reading a new book, a chapter unlocks the mystery behind sex energy and leads me to some personal understanding about my own.

    Chapter Fourteen, Bread Crumbs | Part One

    In part one of the last chapter in season one, I explore the journey of stepping further into realization and how things that weren't serving my new purpose began to fall away. I discuss my discovery of the states of consciousness that my meditation practice has revealed and the technique I used to help me reach those states . How I stepped further into an understanding of how to access that energy and power that lies within us all and how it began to show itself in my life.

    Chapter Fifteen, Bread Crumbs | Part Two

    In part two of Bread Crumbs, I continue the discovery of becoming the witness of life unfolding, instead of the victim. I was coming in to the realization that the universe wasn’t setting me up to fail but was in fact leading me to where I wanted to go and that the only resistance getting in the way was coming from me.

    I was and still am deepening my trust in life, so that I can be more of a deliberate creator and less reactionary and less living in memorized emotion and unconscious behavior.

    I discuss how I discovered my purpose through this process, facing my shadow self and dismantling old beliefs and how I’m continuing to reach beyond what I know.

    Chapter Thirteen, Alchemy

    Chapter Thirteen, Alchemy

    With my self-exploration kicking into high gear, I found myself struggling to find a balance between this new discovery of my inner world and my practiced behaviors and memorized emotions. The affirmations and visualizations I was doing were elevating my mood, momentarily but I couldn't sustain the momentum or figure out how to apply it to my life and make real changes. That is until I stumbled on to some videos that helped crack it all open and gave me some practices that I could implement and some philosophies that I could contemplate and realize.

    Chapter Twelve, Plus One

    Chapter Twelve, Plus One

    In this chapter I examine justification by looking at my state of consciousness during a relationship and after relocating back to Los Angeles from New York. I left New York feeling focused and energized but I got caught up in a life that wasn't mine. Loosing mys sense of self in my relationship and my need for external validation and acceptance, justifying my choices and my circumstances to create the life I thought I should have, in order to reach my goals and succeed. 

    But all the pain, I never addressed would crescendo and lead me to a small doorway for change.

    Chapter Eleven, Messy

    Chapter Eleven, Messy

    Why can it be so difficult for us to be on our own? To walk through the world without a partner. We grow up believing that we are incomplete without a special someone in our lives, to love us and give our lives meaning. We will sacrifice our own growth in order to not feel alone, to not be alone. We tumble into entanglements for safety. At least, that's what I did. I had grown accustom to having that person in my life who made me feel that everything would be okay. What was I without that? I wasn't quite ready to find that out.

You too?

I know that congratulations Isn’t what you’re looking for but when it comes from someone who's been looking for words to express my inner soul, I must offer congratulations.

I have only listened to two of your episodes, but knowing you or what I thought I knew of you for over 25 years and realizing that I’m just getting to know you, or the real you is beautiful. I didn’t realize we shared such parallel lives growing up as children. I also was taken away from my mother at birth because my father was African American. I also was given another name at birth because the family didn’t like my father‘s choice. I also found my survival through dance, and my obsession with Michelle Johnston was just as strong as yours. but this review isn’t about me, its about you. I have seen you in so many different lights, and enjoyed all of them. I have been one of your biggest fans as a dancer, acting, singer and bartender but this....isnt fanatic, this is true inspiration.

Thank you for laying it all out there. I look forward to getting to know YOU more.

I love you from the deepest part of my soul. I always have, I always will.

I wish you all the best,

Marky Martinez

Extraordinary and inspiring

It’s always so great to come upon a podcast that resonates so deeply. Sebastian‘s stories are both inspiring and extraordinary. This podcast came out at the perfect time

Absolutely Inspiring!

I have known Sebastian La Cause for almost a decade. I have always been inspired and moved by the work he has created/produced as an artist.... whether it be acting, dancing, writing, directing, singing, or producing. And though I have always looked up to him as a pioneer and one of my heroes in the entertainment industry... I have never really gotten to know him except through the few times we have worked together. I feel that listening to “Chasing Happy”, has begun to change that. I love getting to know Sebastian through this seemingly effortless, telling of his story. It is honest and courageous. I am beyond inspired by his courage to share who he is. And many times, though we come from two completely different worlds, I find myself awestruck and amazed to discover the extraordinary amount of similarities and experiences we share about our lives, growing up. I highly recommend everyone, no matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, your skin color, religion, sexuality... listen to this beautiful podcast and take the ride of discovering how we are all the same. Bravo Sebastian. Your story is a gift. You are gift. And I am so glad that I am getting to know you even more. Thank you for sharing. Keep on going!
