    💾 Quotes "When you grow up you tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That's a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact: Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again." ~ Steve Jobs  

    "Don’t try to solve serious matters in the middle of the night." ~ Philip K. Dick

    💾 Quotes

    "If he errs, if he wanders, if he indulges in self pity he does not despair.  He knows that he is human and he remembers the choice that he made.  He picks his sword back up from the ground and resumes the path of the warrior." ~ Aubrey Marcus

    "First thing every morning tell yourself: today I am going to meet a busybody, an ingrate, a bully, a liar, a schemer, and a boor.  Ignorance of good and evil has made them what they are.  But I know that the good is by nature beautiful and the bad ugly, and I know that these wrong-doers are by nature my brothers, not by blood or breeding, but by being similarly endowed with reason and sharing in the divine.  None of them can harm me, for none can force me to do wrong against my will, and I cannot be angry with a brother or resent him, for we were born into this world to work together like the feet, hands, eyelids, and upper and lower rows of teeth.  To work against one another is contrary to nature, and what could be more like working against someone than resenting or abandoning him?" ~ Marcus Aurelius

    S01E08 - My Marriage

    🎦 Watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/8uwMzaW_f1M 

    💾 Quotes "A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other guardian of his solitude.  Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings, infinite distances continue to exist, a wonderful living side by side can grow up.  If they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each other to see the other whole against a wide sky.  Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other." ~ Rilke  

    "Just the effort itself, I learned to recognize that, trying to build a better world was satisfying in and of itself and necessary whether or not it actually succeeded.  We all had to try.  And I think that's the moment of courage where you say 'I'm going to try this regardless of whether it works because it's a worthy mission'." ~ Rick Doblin, MAPS

    💾 Quotes 

    "A warning is not a threat, but a spoken threat is a foolish warning to give to your enemies.  If a man is worth threatening, then he is worth killing.  Cut him down before a word is spoken.  Otherwise keep your tongue prudently sheathed along with your sword." ~ Akiyama Munenoshi  

    "Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet.  Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist.  Be curious.  And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can and will succeed at.  It matters that you don't just give up." ~ Stephen Hawking

    S01E06 - Take a Breath

    🎦 Watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/IPnvmkBbtoY

    💾 Quotes "We have everything we need.  There is no need for self-improvement.  All these trips that we lay on ourselves, the heavy duty fearing that we're bad and hoping that we're good, the identities that we so dearly cling to.  The rage, the jealousy and addictions never touch our basic wealth.  They are like clouds that temporarily block the sun, but all the time our warmth and brilliance are right here.  This is who we really are.  We are one blink of an eye away from being fully awake." ~ Pema Chodron  

    "The line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either -- but right through every human heart." ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
