A light hearted and insightful talk show dedicated to inner inquiry, spiritual transformation, and Self-realization. The show offers a platform for a genuine discussion on the many paths we can take to discovering the true Self and unlocking true freedom and lasting happiness in our lives.
30. What No One Tells You About Manifesting
In this week's episode Mat and Ash dive into the "manifesting" new age craze and clarify a couple of massive misconceptions about where it comes from and what it actually means. They go over the New Age version and when it is useful as well as shed light on the original Hindu and yogic origins of what "manifesting" was actually referring to.
They share their own journey with manifesting, the pitfalls to be aware of, and how to align yourself with your highest joy and freedom from practicing "real" manifesting according to its original intention.
29. Porn, Gaming, and the Era of Socially Accepted Addiction
In this week's episode Mat and Ash dive into the triggering topic of pornography use, gaming, and the era of socially accepted addiction that they are noticing in the world. This discussion is for those who are seeking true self-mastery and lasting happiness and have the courage to look at the consequences of the use of these things.
They share stories from their own journey and dive into the negative side effects and consequences that come from masking discomfort using substances or experiences as well as all the positive benefits that come from walking the yogic path of self-mastery.
28. Spiritual Standards vs. Spiritual Bypassing
In this week's episode Mat and Ash speak to the common theme they are seeing in spiritual communities in which spiritual standards and discipline are being abandoned under the premise of self-acceptance and a false sense of liberation.
They share stories from their own journey and speak bluntly on topics such as sexualizing oneself on social media, substance use, and the difference between spiritual bypassing and accountability.
27. Get Comfortable being Uncomfortable
One of the biggest misconceptions of empowerment is that the goal or sign of empowerment is our ability to create a life without discomfort, problems, or setbacks. This is actually backwards. Our empowerment and liberation is actually measured by our ability to face life's discomforts with ease, grace, and confidence.
In this week's episode Mat and Ash discuss the transition that comes from realizing the path to liberation is actually through discomfort - not from escaping it. Furthermore, that suffering only arises when we resist the uncomfortable things of our life.
The enlightened yogis are not in bliss because they have no discomfort, they are in bliss because they can face discomfort with ease. This is the path to true freedom and lasting happiness.
26. Enlightenment vs. Law of Attraction
Law of attraction is gaining unprecedented popularity in the new age and spiritual communities. Spiritual seekers are flocking to its exciting promises but are unaware that its tenants are actually some of the most common distractions on the genuine path to enlightenment.
In this episode Mat and Ash share their own experience with the law of attraction and compare it to the teachings of Self-realization and the sincere devotion to enlightenment.
If you're wondering if Law of Attraction is working for you, or serving you in your spiritual journey, this episode will shine the light of awareness on the most common pitfalls of the "manifestation" ideology.
