What is joy? What are we like when joy arises? What are we like when joy is outside of awareness? Rather than taking joy for granted and assuming we understand it, let's investigate it and see what we learn. Is it something dependent on external conditions? Or is joy an ever-present potential that arises when we allow it to? If so, how can we allow it to arise more often? I hope this episode can help build your own intuitive understanding of joy. Enjoy :)
Communication is part of everyone's life. However, communication which is honest, free of blame or judgement, and compassionate, is not so common. For most of us, we sort of just take communication for granted and never really learn about how to communicate in a compassionate, non-violent, and honest way until we stumble into it as Jazz did. Jazz walks us through the principles of non-violent communication and reveals how we can use communication to connect with others rather than separate us from each other. Jazz is a writer, podcaster, and Non-violent communication workshop facilitator. You can find out more about her and non-violent communication at https://liberationandlove.com/
This podcast focuses on the similarities between all us human folks. A fundamental similarity is that we each want to be happy and do what we believe will bring us happiness. As Steve shares here, a simple thing that brings happiness to others and ourselves is a kind smile. Join us in this episode where we share perspectives and laughter on everything from the Corona situation to being a loving presence in peoples lives. An episode with no particular structure and many warm flames of joy scattered throughout.
What distinguishes an adult child from a mature adult? In this growth-based society fuelled by INNOVATION, what are we growing towards? What are we innovating upon? We assume that things are gonna stay the way they are but history shows us, as Eric points out, that no civilization has lasted. In fact, it is the native based peoples who have lasted the longest out of anyone. This is an episode with a lot of questions and unknowns in which listeners are invited to step into the unknown and own the simple truth that we don't know anything.
Let's talk about energy! Kyle, a certified emotional code practitioner, guides us through this conversation about energy and recognising energy through our experience with emotions. We can all relate to the heaviness of classically negative emotions and the lightness of the emotions we all enjoy the most. We are all tapped into this energetic matrix which makes up our universe and need only recognise this to begin to utilise it to build the life we want for ourselves. Learn how Kyle uses the higher vibration of happy memories to help transmute negative patterns of thought or feelings into new patterns. It's all about those vibes! Kyle brings an energetic perspective to life ;) Also lot's of dog talk!
Who or what am I? Self-investigation is directing focus onto the source out of which everything else arises. As Rob highlights, it involves moving past belief systems and conceptual frameworks to one's direct experience. This is a fun episode with a lot of laughter in which experiences are shared and new perspectives are revealed. To me, Rob embodies the pure awe-ness and joy that arises when the truth is experientially recognized. One has been staring at it this whole time and totally overlooked it. It's all really quite hilarious :-)
I wanted to keep this recording raw for listeners to see the beautiful flow from misunderstanding to understanding. When we begin talking about joy, one might notice a subtly that whilst we use the same word, there is a difference in the meaning of that word to each of us. As the podcast goes on, a bridge of understanding is built and seeming differences dissolve into one essence. The joy of service to the greater good as we each understand the greater good.
A love-full episode that dispels dramatic illusions and imaginings of the "holier than thou" spiritual persona that I once held in mind and I'm sure, many still do. Fran Grace, the author of Power of Love, shares inspiration and insight into leading a life aligned with love. Fran shares how Dr David R Hawkins and his wife, Susan Hawkins, played a profound role in writing the book and in demonstrating to her - by virtue of who they are - what love truly is. Truly a great and fun listen for anyone interested in spirituality, love, and being their most joyful Self.
It was from Rosi that I first adopted the perspective of "Growth Opportunities". The re-contextualization of every life situation to see the opportunity for growth into our most joyful self. A broad episode, we share our perspectives on the current situation and the growth opportunities as we can see them. Moving from this to a general rif about not-so-common perspectives that nurture a joyful view of life. In, the last 10-20 minutes we move into an awesome dialogue about love, seeing a loving world, and moving into unconditional love. A wonderful episode full of absolute gems of joy for anyone looking to be their most joyful self.
It's simply about broadcasting joy. To provide insight and inspiration. To provide listeners with the insight and tools to remove any blocks to the endless source of joy within all of life. The joy with which the puppy wags its tail and the kitten purs. The joy with which we played as children and the elephants swim with :-)
Service, Service, and more service. Duccio is the embodiment of service and service spoke through Duccio for us to hear. Here, we see how if we lose ourself in service to others, we can move closer to self-realisation. I hope my perspective adds to your intuitive understanding.
A wonderful episode with the wonderful Duccio, director of PSYCH-K® international. It weaves between the yin of positioning ourselves in loving service and the yang of bold action to embody the changes we want to see. Duccio shares his perspective from his days in his Osteopath practice to discovering PSYCH-K® and beginning to uncover the hitherto hidden motives of his actions. In making the hidden drive for validation from others conscious, he was able to transform all related limiting beliefs and fully embrace self-less loving service. Duccio is someone who embodies everything he says with great integrity and devotion.
These short segments are a sharing of my intuited understanding of the essence of each episode. Designed to help the listener recognise the essence via familiarity and a slightly differing perspective.
Diving into the essence of Stoic philosophy and the principle that "Nothing external can harm you". Practical insight into embodying this principle in our lives and some fun chats about living life according to values, dying gracefully, and establishing a rigid psychological foundation for life.
