    Our Relationship with the Sun

    Episode #103

    Original Airdate: 13 July 2021

    Produced by: Doug Krisch

    Length: 36 minutes



    How is your relationship to the Sun?

    Do you know the basics... how far away the sun is?  How large the sun is?



    How is your relationship to your own skin?  After all, this is the part of our bodies - along with our eyes - that interacts with the rays of the sun.  Do you understand how to protect your skin?



    In this episode, I introduce 'The Shadow Rule' and encourage a deeper understanding of our relationship with the sun.



    And then after we touch upon the basics of science,  we take a look at culture - what happened to our old nature-based deities?  Our sun deities?  And how do these shifts in culture affect our understanding of our place in the world... in the galaxy ...



    An action packed, not-to-be-missed episode...

    The pandemic is winding down in the United States.



    But the repercussions are rumbling... through our own selves, our towns and neighborhoods, and around the world.



    Even if better times are ahead of us, it seems that we are still in the midst of a lot of chaos and change.



    So let us explore the metaphor of the False Peak and how it relates to setting expectations.

    Weather of the Mind 101.  Past, Present and Future.  A reintroduction of sorts.

    Length: 24 minutes



    A celebration of sorts... where I give some thanks to a handful of friends and brainstorm pals for their support over the past 2.5 years.



    I posed this question to these members of my de facto board of advisors:  why does the Weather of the Mind podcast resonate with you?



    Insightful and encouraging answers abound.

Magnificent

I feel as though Doug provides a weekly outlet for people to tune in to, allowing us to escape our monotonous routines and reflect on the deeper virtues of life, and practical ways to access them

“Carpe Diem” to All Humans. May “Weather of the Mind” long live and prosper

I see this podcast as a great international tool, but more focused on immediate benefits of a close-knit community. Local. Those daily in our Immediate surroundings benefited by Truly discovering and learning more from each other.
How we can all be more compassionate and understanding on our paths. Yet, always remembering the nitty gritty and realness of some of our relationships with others best coined as, “ I love you, but I don’t have to like you. “

We can disagree with others without being disagreeable.

I praise Doug over his numerous years that I’ve only subtly known him through a few phone calls, emails and 1 time meeting in person... for his vigilance, persistence and pursuit of dedicating his life and existence toward improving lives.

“Weather of the Mind...”
Our minds are just as the weather is (constantly changing each breath of air we breathe)...and this is a great podcast in which Doug dissects various aspects our minds take us in this life. This podcast has no boundaries and is true Art.

I believe Doug is a true anthropologist. A true philanthropist.

A sobering podcast

Great podcast! Love the format, music, and the interactive nature that encourages people to take the podcast outside.
