[00:00:00] Alex Tsakiris: On this episode of skeptiko. A show about hearing the truth.
[00:00:07] clip: You need to find the truth about yourself. It’s quite simple, Jack. You need to get quiet, not just with your mouth, with your mind. And in that quiet, you will hear the truth.
Alex Tsakiris: Even if it’s coming from yourself.
[00:00:26] Tim Grimes: How could you have to force yourself to be what you already are?
You’re here. So there’s nothing you have to force.
Alex Tsakiris: That first clip was from a 2012 movie, a thousand words. And the second was from today’s returning guest, Tim Grimes.
The show is a little different from the usual skeptical stuff. Although I’ve done a few shows on this and as you know, , this is really where my heart’s at. What’s nearest and dearest to me. So I hope you enjoy it. ===
[00:00:56] Alex Tsakiris: Welcome to skeptical where we explore controversial science and spirituality with leading researchers, thinkers and their critics.
I’m your host, Alex Garris. And today we welcome back Tim Grimes. Tim is the author of the joy of not thinking a radical approach to happiness. This is the book that first introduced me to Tim. It’s still out there. You can still read it for free on Kindle unlimited great book.
Really enjoyed it. You can also find email@example.com. I’ve pulled that up on the screen if you’re ever watching on YouTube. And uh, he’s got another, a number of other books on Amazon and he has really great podcasts as well. That. I love listening to, I’m just, uh, it’s, it’s one of the ones I wait for and see if it pops up and I get to it right away.
So I have had Tim on a couple times. I obviously you can tell from what I just said, that I really appreciate his work. So I pinged him to do this different project and I just thought it’d be fun. And Tim, welcome back. Thanks so much for being
[00:02:06] Tim Grimes: here. Thank you, Alex. It’s uh, always a pleasure. I realize I’m sitting this chair.
I have a very comfortable chair and I’m very far back from the screen. So I’m gonna move up a little bit. I might move back later. Hi everybody.
[00:02:19] Alex Tsakiris: that looks good. Okay. Now our, now our heads are about the same size instead of me looking like giant head . So I pinged you, uh, a couple. Months ago, I guess, because I have this practice.
It’s one of my daily practices. I won’t say spiritual practice, but it is a spiritual practice. And that is that I have these questions that I’ve written for myself because I’ve found that questions provoke me and provoke that little voice in my head to answer them in a unique way or in a way that inspires me.
So I said, Hey, Tim, I’ve actually added to my list of questions with some of the questions that I’ve gotten from your show. What do you think about doing a show on seven questions for the voice inside your head? And you responded in exactly the way I would’ve expected and hope that you respond. You were like, hell yeah, I’m down for that.
That sounds good. So I don’t know if it’ll be seven questions. It might be more, it might be less. But tell me, tell everybody kind of what you think of this idea in general of questions for the voice inside your
[00:03:34] Tim Grimes: head. Sure.
