2693 - The Myth Of A "Nation Of Immigrants" w/ Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

Sam and Emma host historian Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz, to discuss her recent book Not A "Nation Of Immigrants": Settler Colonialism, White Supremacy, And A History Of Erasure And Exclusion. Sam and Emma host historian Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, to discuss her recent book, “Not A ‘Nation Of Immigrants": Settler Colonialism, White Supremacy, And A History Of Erasure And Exclusion,“ on the settler-colonial roots of the US and the impossibility of obscuring them, no matter how much liberals push the “melting pot” ideology. They start off with the coining of the term “nation of immigrants” by Senator John F. Kennedy in '58, which was quickly adopted by the liberal US elite during their ‘60s fad of multiculturalism, and the status of which Biden has restored on the White House immigration page following Trump's removal of it. To help emphasize the meaninglessness of this term, Dunbar-Ortiz helps define what a “settler state” is, and how the US has always been one; they start with the British origins of settler-colonialism and the replacement of local and indigenous peoples in Northern Ireland, before the empire moved on to New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and, of course, North America. While colonialism had existed since Columbus' first arrival in the western hemisphere, the settler state brought about a new form of it, different even from the enslavement and exploitation of local peoples and resources engaged in by the Spanish, and saw the migration of Brits to new lands, while still claiming wholeheartedly their citizenship status to the British Empire. From a start that could not be more contrary to the concept of a  “melting” of cultures, Roxanne, Emma, and Sam then dive into the nature of the US as a Fiscal Military state, made for and by war, as they laid claim to “property rights” across the world via militia, before they move to reflect on the connections between the myth of Columbus and the Americanization of white immigrant populations, and the cultural perception of whiteness that drives American ideology. She particularly looks into the birth of an explicitly racist warfare ideology during the Spanish Inquisition, ingraining this blood quantum view of whiteness into a certain Christian ideology, and touches on how the legacy of Columbus reaches back to the first founding of the US, with the District of Columbia, and continues to be central in the history of Americanizing foreign white folks. Sam and Emma also discuss the absurdity of pretending to care about Columbus Day, and watch the Bobby Jindal-funded Black-Box Republican-Theater-commercial that aired during this weekend's Red Sox-Rays game.  Become a member at JoinTheMajorityReport.com Subscribe to the AMQuickie newsletter here.

213 NEW YORK: Close to Home with Scott Gurian

Hey from The Big Apple I started my adventure in the Big Apple sitting in a park in Brooklyn on a Saturday morning watching small kids and grown-ups playing football – yes, as a European, this is what I call the game where someone kicks a round ball with their feet.  I'm waiting to meet up with my friend Scott Gurian. Even though we'd never met prior, we do consider each other friends.  Scott is a fellow veteran travel podcaster and one of the best in the business. He's the guy from the Far from Home podcast you must have heard me talk about many times here on the Radio Vagabond travel podcast. Scott planned to spend his Saturday with me in Brooklyn, Queens, and New York showing me around some interesting places in his hood while we chatted and got to know each other. Scott lives in nearby Jersey, just across the Hudson River, so we're Close to Home for Scott today. As we walked over to Scott's car — a nice big new Toyota — I immediately joked that it was very different from the small, old car that played a big part in the first season of his podcast. FAR FROM HOME Scott participated in the Mongol Rally and drove a tiny, beaten out Nissan Micra stick shift across Europe and Asia about five years ago for an epic 18,000 mile (29,000 km). He did this crazy adventure from the UK to Mongolia with his brother and two friends – and after that, he decided to drive back in the same car. The first season of Far from Home is outstanding and got me hooked on the podcast long before we knew each other. I highly recommend listening to it if you haven't already. Also, watch a few clips of his journey to experience the trials and tribulations first-hand. Naturally, he has so many memorable stories and anecdotes from that trip, so I wanted to find out which stand out most in his memory. "Oh, so many. Driving across Iran with my brother and two friends (as Americans and Brits) was amazing; the friendliness of the people was memorable. Also, travelling through 'untouched' countries in central Asia like Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, etc., was excellent. Seeing Cappadocia in Turkey with its hot air balloons was also amazing. And, of course, Mongolia is incredible with its vast open spaces and extraordinary scenery. It took us about seven weeks to travel from the UK to Mongolia, so as you can imagine, I have many incredible memories from that trip." Scott wanted to see more of the world, so instead of flying back to Europe (like any sane human would), he decided to drive back to explore more countries and regions, like Siberia in Russia. THROAT SINGING IN SIBERIA In one of the episodes of Season 2, Scott visits the remote south Siberian Republic of Tuva to learn about the traditional instruments and the ancient art of throat singing. He even attempts to throat sing himself! Read more about this visit and see photos and videos here. "Russia is such an enormous country with so many different regions home to vastly different cultures. Tuva was a 12 hour journey out the way to visit and it is so unique. It is close to Mongolia so the Tuvans look very similar to Mongolians." HALLUCINATING ON AYAHUASCA IN PERU In another episode, he meets a medicine man who invited him to attend a hallucinogenic healing ceremony where he drank ayahuasca. All while holding his microphone. Have a listen to the episode by clicking here. CLOSE TO HOME Due to the pandemic, Scott hasn't been able to travel overseas. But he is content as he tells me that living in Jersey, there is a lot of adventure that awaits in and around New York. He started cooking and even home-brewing to keep his itchy travel feet scratched. Scott was due to meet me at AfricaBurn – the South African Burning Man just outside Cape Town when lockdown hit. Scott stayed in Jersey, and I was stuck in Cape Town for a while (so be sure to listen to my Radio Vagabond South African travel adventures). We were supposed to travel a bit of South Africa together, but alas, it was not meant to be. SCOTT GURIAN'S NEW YORK TRAVEL GUIDE One of the cool things about making friends worldwide is that they can show you places you usually wouldn't visit. Because I had visited New York several times before, Scott wanted to take me to places few tourists would know about. Here is a list of Scott's unusual but must-visit places in New York Scott took me to: DUMBO A part of Brooklyn is called DUMBO aka "Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass" is a trendy neighbourhood to walk through Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn NEW YORK CITY TRANSIT MUSEUM In an old subway station, you can visit the New York City Transit Museum. Move further down and see some 100-year-old subway cars. WILLIAMSBURG Williamsburg is a hipster neighbourhood that is cool to stroll through. QUEENS MUSEUM OF ART Next to where they hosted the World Fair, you find Queens Museum of Art, where the Panorama is now housed – a scaled model of every borough in the greater New York area in the 1960's. THE CITY RELIQUARY The City Reliquary is a not-for-profit community museum and civic organization located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It's really cool and weird – and connects visitors to both the past and present of New York. We walked around Brooklyn for a bit and found the iconic Instagram spot with the bridge in the background. You might remember it from the gangster movie 'Once Upon a Time in America' poster. Then visited a place with a lot of food trucks called Smorgesburg. As far as I know, this word comes from the Danish smørrebrød, and then Americans started saying it like the Swedish Chef from Muppet Show. Unfortunately, we didn't find any Danish smørrebrød at Smorgesburg. Another thing we couldn't find after that was… Scott's car. After a slight ordeal trying to locate his car, we eventually found it after getting help from the police. Even locals can get lost in New York. Go figure :) TAJIKISTAN POLICE Our polite encounter with the NYPD reminded me of Scott's experience with the local police in Tajikistan on his trip. I asked him to talk about his experience. "There is a lot of corruption in central Asian countries like Tajikistan. Our British friends in another Nissan Micra got pulled over by some traffic cops who actually aimed their radar gun at another car, and then tried to say it was them who was speeding. My brother's and I stopped too and heard that they demanded $100 which was a month salary here and crazy. Specially since they weren't speeding. It was clearly a scam, and we didn't want to give in to the bribe/corruption stigma. After a long time, we eventually settled on handing over a bottle of vodka, and we were back on the road." Scott secretly recorded the entire encounter that you can listen to in its entirety in Episode 16 of Far from Home, Season 1. Scott tells about more traffic cop encounters he had in central Asia. Most of the time, the cops were polite and never gave them any unnecessary issues. We exchanged stories about the amazing people we get to meet on the road. Scott paid particular mention to the wonderful Iranian popularity he experienced. Thanks to Scott for taking me around the New York area on a beautiful Saturday. I hope to team up with him soon to do some travelling together and collaborate on future episodes of both our podcasts. My name is Palle Bo, and I gotta keep moving.   NEW YORK FLASHBACKS If you want to listen to more of my travels through New York from previous visits, simply follow the link: The Radio Vagabond Travel Podcast in New York.

Um, and this was back in, well, I started it in 1980 and, um, and I just walked off the plane and I said, I love it here. And I'm more or less, never left. I mean, my heart is still, I'm still a rabid American and I'm very involved in America. And my audience is, you know, the majority are Americans, although they come from all over the world. Um, but, uh, I've lived here. So I've, I live in London.Mischa Z: 00:03:25 I love it. I knew there was something interesting there. So in 1980 to 1983, you're researching, uh, one of the Kennedy sisters. It brings you to the era aristocracy of England. And are you, you love England, but are you enjoying the research of the book at this point or what's what'sLynn McTaggart: 00:03:49 Oh, I loved it. I mean, it was fascinating to me because it was a real window. As somebody wrote about the book, it was a real window into the Kennedy's because this was the one member of the family, the one child of the nine, who didn't March down the same road, you know, she defied her parents, which was incredible. None of the boys did and married a Protestant, which was shocking back then, uh, in the, you know, this was during the war in the 1940s. And, uh, she married basically one of the highest level aristocrats in, in the UK who was Protestant. And he got killed in world war II. And then she went out again and intended to marry a married Lord. So this was even more scandalous for Catholic rose and, you know, and, um, the whole family and Joe Kennedy was loved that daughter, probably most of all, but, you know, even he was concerned because it was going to affect his children's political future.Lynn McTaggart: 00:04:59 So she ended up marrying it, uh, dying in a plane crash on her way to try to get Joe's blessing on marrying this married guy, married Protestants. So it was this amazing dramatic story that was, uh, I was able to tell the story of that generation, which was kind of the golden generation before the war that lost everything and also have this little peek hole into the family life of the Kennedys. So it was a fascinating project. Um, but I never expected it was going to land me here. And it certainly was a million miles away from the work that I have on now known for.Mischa Z: 00:05:40 Yeah. Um, is, can you, uh, there's a little bit of feedback on your end. Are you hearing it?Lynn McTaggart: 00:05:47 I'm not, I'm not.Mischa Z: 00:05:49 I think there we go. It's good. We're good. Okay. Yeah. Um, so I can edit that out or not. Who knows? It's podcast light, that's it? Okay. So, so your researching this book, obviously cool rich history, which I love. And, um, and you now there's, we've got some quantum physics going on in to-do fast forward. Um, there's intention, there's science behind all this stuff. What happens between, so what are you, are you, are you like a scientist or what's going on, like fill in the blanksLynn McTaggart: 00:06:32 Misha I'm very far from a scientist, I'm a journalist. And I started out life as an investigative reporter. So my first book was an investigation and an expo say of lawyers around the world who were doing baby selling, who were essentially selling babies for adoption. And I broke a number of, um, international baby selling rings. Now this was what they call gray market adoption. There weren't laws against this, but it was just morally wrong what they were doing. And they were exploiting children and parents who couldn't have children. So that's where I started, you know, in my early twenties, I had, I was hooked up with hidden tape recorders, um, back when there were tape recorders and all this kind of undercover stuff. So that was my background. And the Kennedy book came about because my publishers thought there was a hidden story here and they thought I was a really good investigative reporter.Lynn McTaggart: 00:07:31 And so they, they basically set me on the, on the story and of the Kennedys. And, uh, it was a wonderful story. It's sad story. So I moved over here, I got married, I got ill and nobody could figure out what was wrong with me. And so after going to both conventional and alternative doctors, I then decided, well, if I'm going to get better, I'm going to have to research what I think I have. And then also research the kind of doctor I think, cure me. And so I did, I went to a doctor who was the, uh, a, a real pioneer in what was then integrative medicine and nutritional medicine. And he was so amazing and it turned out I had a faulty microbiome. It's, it's something that's really common these days. Everybody knows about it, but they didn't back then, which was the 1980s.Lynn McTaggart: 00:08:30 And so, uh, he got me better and we were both fascinated by it. And I had my, I met my husband over here. Who's also a journalist. We were married by that time. And, and we both were so fascinated by this process and thought, well, if you could control your own health and you could work with doctors like this and get the real story about medicine, then that would be really great for people. So we started a newsletter called what doctors don't tell you, it's now an international magazine. It's in 15 languages around the globe. And we report on what works and what doesn't work in conventional and alternative medicine. And we look at the medical literature so way back in the 1990s, I'm doing this and I'm coming across study after study of spiritual healing, showing this stuff works. So I'm thinking to myself, wait a minute, if you could take a thought and send it to someone else and make them better.Lynn McTaggart: 00:09:31 Well, that undermines everything. We think about how the world works. So I wanted to investigate how that works. And I assumed if I talked to some cutting edge businesses who are doing consciousness research, they'll tell me how it all works. Oh, write it up. And that's it. No publish the book. Well, that, wasn't what it was. What happened was I talked to these scientists and I, um, I realized that they were on the brink of an completely new view of the world, a completely new science. Each of them had discovered a little piece of a puzzle that compounded into a completely new view of the world, a new understanding of who we are as human beings and our capacities. So that became my book, the field. And I also realized that these scientists, they speak a map, they speak in a code and they can't really translate that into normal English.Lynn McTaggart: 00:10:31 They also like to just talk about their own experimental little patch. They don't like to speculate on how this comes together. So that job got left to me. So I really had to tutor and be tutored in quantum physics. I had to be tutored in this new science and learn this new science. I was well acquainted with reading scientific literature because of my work, um, my other work with what ducks. But so I, I put that together and that was my book, the field. Um, but there was a lot of leftover business, which was a number of studies. These amazing scientists, prestigious scientists, all from prestigious universities had come across showing that thoughts are an actual something with the capacity to change physical matter. So I wondered, okay, how far can we take this? This is the investigative reporter in me. I said, you know, are we talking about just a tiny little effect, like shifting a quantum particle, or are we talking about curing cancer with our thoughts?Lynn McTaggart: 00:11:40 And also I was fascinated by the idea of what happens if you put lots of people together and have them send the same thought at the same time, does that magnify the effect? And so my next book was the intention experiment, which was both a book about the science, all the science of intention, and there's loads of it, but also an invitation to take part in ongoing experiments because I thought, well, I know a lot of the scientists who are doing this work now, and I also have loads of readers because the field was in 30 languages by then. So I thought, well, if I just put them both together, I'll have the biggest laboratory in the world. And so that's what I did. And that is been the intention experiment ever since 2007, we've run 40 experiments now. And the last one, we just ran for nine 11, the 20th anniversary. So I don't have the outcome of that yet, but most of the time we are running them with scientists and they're measuring data and looking at before and afterward, et cetera. And of the 39 where we have evidence 35 have shown measurable, significant, mostly, mostly significant effects. That's a better track record than most drugs.Mischa Z: 00:13:03 Yeah. I, I read this book. Um, I have a few questions for you, but I read this book about, um, it was called, um, oh gosh, I wish I could remember, but I was looking through your stuff and I saw that 35 of your, uh, studies had significant statistical. How did you say that? Significant,Lynn McTaggart: 00:13:27 Positive, um, positive, measurable, mostly significant effects basically. And significance in science means there's such a big change that it's a significant change and it's, it's considered, you know? Yeah. We really had it.Mischa Z: 00:13:45 Yeah. There's I think the book is called death grip, but it's about a climber, a rock climber, you know, uh, and, uh, he from a very young age gets parents put them on benzodiazepines, right? So he has this brutal benzodiazepine addiction for a good chunk of his life. And it's a really cool book because it just talks about his process of trying to get off of the meds and all this. But he also has a lot of data in there. Um, and basically the data was most of the, and I wish I had the book in front of me. It's a great book. Um, most of the, the, um, studies for, you know, the benzos and all this sort of stuff. There's no difference between that. It's basically all statistically insignificant, right? Like there's no difference between the placebos and the, and the, um, the word is escaping me, but they're stillLynn McTaggart: 00:14:47 Agent. Yeah,Mischa Z: 00:14:48 Yeah, yeah, yeah. And they're still pumping this stuff there. So I was like, it was very eyeopening, but not necessarily.Lynn McTaggart: 00:14:55 Yeah. Well, here's another little step for you that might blow your mind. There was some studies like 25 years of them at Princeton university in the, in the school of engineering, the then Dean of engineer, Robert John set up a program to test whether or not human beings in the mental intention could affect machines. So we set up these random processes. Remember he was an engineer on computers, um, doing alternating images, let's say they had Cowboys and Indians. So they would have a random process. It would be 50% Cowboys, pretty much and 50% Indians. And that's what happens with random stuff like this. So we would sit somebody in front of the computer and say, well, will it to show more of one thing than the other, let's have more Indians than Cowboys. So they did hundreds and thousands of these studies and they showed a small but significant increase toward the focused intention. So say if there were more Indians in Cowboys, there'd be more to dancing Cowboys, then there was randomly. So when they compare this to something like aspirin, which is considered the most, one of the most successful drugs out there, because it's has this long history, the effect of sending intention to this equipment was 10 times an effect size. That's a rate of change than it was with aspirin than it is with aspirin. So there's a mindblowing step for you,Mischa Z: 00:16:29 Yes, indeed. Thank you for that. Um, that's amazing. Um, so quick question, when you were doing the investigative reporting and writing books, and you're on the Kennett writing the Kennedy book, are you having financial success at this point?Lynn McTaggart: 00:16:43 Totally. So, I mean, not, not amazingly, so, but you know, writers have an average income, uh, you know, standard writers have about $3,000 a year. So I was doing considerably better than that. And my book, "The Baby Brokers", um, got made into a television movie way back then starring Lynn Carter. So I had a lot of decent luck, but you know, like a lot of freelancers, you know, um, sometimes you have to live by your width.Mischa Z: 00:17:13 Yeah. Obviously I think it's an interesting bit of information. It sounds like. Uh, yeah, I, I, I guess it's, um, you were having success on one track. You continued with what you're doing, but maybe just bench your,Lynn McTaggart: 00:17:35 Let me, let me put this another way. Um, you know, finances, haven't always been easy way back then, as I said, it was living by my, my wits. I always had, was able to pay my rent. Um, and sometimes I was a ghost writer. I, I think I ghost wrote a, um, a needle point column for the newspapers, a syndicated column and had to write fun, little jingles, like, you know, Hey, make this do bay. And now you can, you know, shake and bake is shaken, make your bed, you know, just stuff like that. I had to do all kinds of goofy stuff like that to, to pay the bills sometimes. But what was really important to me was, um, I was a managing editor of a newspaper syndicate, and I got the job when I was 23. I was really young and I had a big, important job.Lynn McTaggart: 00:18:28 And, um, I, you know, was in charge of all the editorial for, um, for syndicated columns coming out of this, this new, new syndicated was the Chicago Tribune, New York news syndicate, but I really wanted to write more than I wanted to be an editor. And so I followed my dream and I left the job after three years when I got a book contract. So I just jumped off the diving board into the deep end and I've never looked back and I've actually only worked for someone else for six years in my life. I took a job for a few years in the UK as an editor, and then jumped off that diving board again, to do what doctors don't tell you. So I've always tried to follow my own intention of work and to try to do the work that I love and to trust the process and good stuff happened.Lynn McTaggart: 00:19:23 Not that it wasn't sometimes a struggle, you know, I can remember plenty of times where it was, you know, it was tough when we were starting out what doctors don't tell you. And we had a small child, then we had a newborn. So there were a lot of times that were a little interesting, but, um, something always happened, you know, angels watched over us, I think, and we just trusted in our own, you know, being able to live by our widths and our own ability. And that was a really important thing. Looking back now. Yeah.Mischa Z: 00:19:57 Yeah. Let, let me ask you, so are at this time, are you conscious of, I mean, are you like you've learned that habit from your parents or are you, are you w were you a churchgoer or, or what, what you're like, this is where my heart is pulling me. I find that for a lot of people, it's very hard. They're like, well, I'm on this success track. The money is good if I just do ABC and their hearts, like, no, go here. No I can't. But it seems like for you, you you're taking these leaps where wLynn McTaggart: 00:20:30 Um, I think I always wanted to be a writer, and that was much more important to me than anything else other than my family. And so even more important than money. So I think I just trusted, um, that I'd get money some way, and then I'd be able to do something. And that happened. I remember once my husband and I, you know, when we first started what doctors, we didn't have any money. So we came up with a book idea and then we got an advance for it. They liked it, we got an advance for it. And then we heard about a year later that, um, someone else was writing a book on the same subject. It was a, it was a biography. So those kinds of things happen, but it was very weird that both of us were going to do it at the same time.Lynn McTaggart: 00:21:20 And so the publisher said, well, you know what, we're going to cancel since you didn't cancel, you can keep that initial payment. So that was just an example of great stroke of luck, where we were really scrambling to pay some bills. Um, I think what it was was we're both. I think we're just, uh, we love what we do, and we follow that through thick or thin. And when there was the thin times, we would have to live by our wits and figure out something else to do. And, but I think the work doing the work that we loved was, was pure enough. And of course, you know, being together. So between the two of us, I guess, we've, you know, we were able to do that. And S and we just believed, we just believed, I think that was a really important element to Mischa.Mischa Z: 00:22:22 Thank you for that. And then quick, the, was there any deep, hidden story in the Kennedy and the Kennedy thing? You're like, there's a story there, like, there's something juicy. Did spoiler, did you find it? Or,Lynn McTaggart: 00:22:34 Well, yeah, the fact that she had to go up against her parents and we can't appreciate how incredibly brave it was to marry a Protestant. You know, her father was the ambassador to the court of St. James and this totally prominent the prominent premier Catholic family back in the 1940s. So for her to go against thisMischa Z: 00:22:58 Or structure to right Joe Kennedy, like the Kennedys, the oil, all this stuff, right? Like, am I...?Lynn McTaggart: 00:23:04 Oh, yeah. I mean, they were wealthy. They were powerful. And he had great, great ambition for his, one of his sons was going to be president. And so here she is just saying, no, I'm going to go back to England. I'm going to be there. And she had met someone when she had met this whole layer of the aristocracy back when her, um, her father was the ambassador to the court of St. James. And she, you know, she went back there to be with her friends. These were the people she was with. She, she, they had debutante balls back then. So she came out as a debutante. And so these were all this whole layer of this generation and Britain were her dear friends. And so she wanted to go back there. So she defined her parents by going back there and marrying the premier Protestant an aristocrat.Lynn McTaggart: 00:24:05 So I think it was that it was the family covered up that she was involved with a married lover. She was flying down for what the Brits call a dirty weekend. And in her last trip, you know, they were flying down to, to the south of France. And when her plane didn't make it, she had a plane crash. So there were, and the family completely covered up her relationship covered up everything. She was just a blank page. And the Kennedy biography basically. And I, they gave it to me, the, my publishers, because they fill an, I could find out what had happened to her. So that was it. But as I say, that was early on in my work and my work has taken a very, very different turn. [spirituality]Mischa Z: 00:24:56 Yes. I, and I'm sorry to dwell, to go dwell on that stuff is to, it's interesting to me. I, and I, I get a sense tonight. You're obviously tenacious if you're wearing wires, things like that, that, um, that, uh, you were, you are a rascal back then.Lynn McTaggart: 00:25:15 Well, I was doing my work and, you know, I would, I would actually say that, you know, journalists are supposed to hold the establishment to account. We're not seeing that anymore. We're certainly not seeing that with COVID. The journalists have become a mouthpiece for the establishment, but back when, you know, when I was growing up, we had heroes like Woodward and Bernstein, and we saw, well, wow, they took down a corrupt presidency. And so for my generation of journalists, we feel essentially a moral obligation to hold people in authority to account and to unearth things that are, you know, are we have only one person to answer to, and that's the public one body of people to answer to. And so for me, investigating people who are taking $25,000 cash under the table to sell them a baby is worth investigating and, you know, and bringing that out in, in, in the light now.Lynn McTaggart: 00:26:28 And it's interesting, I get letters every so often from children who were the product of that, who were sold, and it wasn't a happy adoption. They were desperate to find their biological parents and to find out some closure for, for this weird experience they had. And so they're a demonstration of why, you know, this wasn't a good idea. And so that's, that's the feeling I have now, when you bring this to science and spirituality, what it just means is that I have this, first of all, a sense of skepticism, that it permeates everything I do, because that's our training. And when you put that into spirituality, what it means is I wanted to, I wanted to prove magic. And that's why I did the Intention Experiment because I started seeing magical things around me. I started understanding there's a completely new science here. There's a completely new story about human beings.Lynn McTaggart: 00:27:38 We have far more capacity than we've been told. And so I wanted to investigate that. And that's been really the work over the last four years. And yes, and the work that I've done with large and small intention groups demonstrates there are miracles I see all the time, all the time with small groups, sending intention to some member of the group with a health challenge. And I had a woman a month or two ago, I did a talk to a group in Sedona, and I was just on zoom. So I'm doing my talk. I put them in a small group, cause that's what I've been doing. I call them Power Of Eight Groups and had the older members of the group get into groups. All the members of this audience get into groups, send intention to some members of the group of the health challenge. At the end, we've got a film of it. A woman who had Ms who was confined to a wheelchair, got out of her wheelchair and pushed it away. And that's happened. That's the second wheelchair get out of the wheelchair story I've had. I can tell you about that has happened in the last couple of years, but there are thousands of other healing stories. And so this is the thing that really fascinates me now is decoding why this happens and how to do it.Mischa Z: 00:29:01 So the last four years has been this Power of Eight. You have that book out the Power Of Eight. Is that when you say the last four years?Lynn McTaggart: 00:29:09 No. Since 2008, it took me 10 years to get the courage to write the book. Um, I, um, I started doing this when I did the intention experiment back in 2007, you know, we were getting some really good results. We were getting, I mean, for instance, one experiment we did with St. Louis, Missouri, which is officially the most violent place in America. We did intention to lower violence in this, in the most violent neighborhood in St. Louis. And it turned out when we studied the police data. And we worked with a professor of statistics from the university of California who did all of the analysis. She found that compared to the three years prior, right after our experiment, and for six months afterwards, there was a 43% drop in violence compared to all the rest of St. Louis, which had violence continue to go up.Lynn McTaggart: 00:30:02 So we have this big experience and we've had them in all of these big experiments. So back in 2008, I said to myself, well, what would happen if I tried to scale this down to a workshop? So I was running early workshops, didn't really know what I was doing and thought, well, I'll just put them into groups and have them send healing to a member of the group with the health challenge. And my husband's great, a headline writer. And he said, I love it. I said, I'll put them in groups of eight or something. And he said, I love it. "The Power Of Eight". So that's what we did. We put them in groups of eight, not expecting much to happen besides feeling like getting a back rub or something like that. And that isn't what happened. What happened was we were getting, you know, we had in that first group that a woman who had depression and she came in the next day of the workshop saying, I feel really normal.Lynn McTaggart: 00:30:59 I feel great today. Someone else with terrible stomach issues, IBS and her stomach was normal. Somebody else with terrible arthritis was walking. Normally somebody else would cataract said she was 80% better. And so that was the very first group. And we're saying to ourselves, "what?", Um, what is going on? And we assumed it was a placebo effect. You know, that it was just mental is up until it started happening over and over again. I kept doing it and doing it and doing it. And I've seen this now, thousands of times, people with genetic problems, a woman who had something wrong with their liver, a genetic problem with their liver enzymes one group intention, she's completely fine. So somebody else due to have surgery on her knee, she does one intention in a group 10 minutes, and she does a deep squat afterward. And we've had thousands like this stage four cancers reversing, et cetera.Lynn McTaggart: 00:32:01 So you can imagine the big skeptic me saying, "what is going on". So that's why it took me 10 years to write that book because I wanted to really understand what it was. And I also wanted to understand what enables you to do it well, and that's what I teach now is how to do it. Um, and what are the techniques? What is, you know, because a lot of people watching, you know, popular movies on the subject, the secret and things like that, just think, well, I believe, and I receive, you know, it's odd I have found is it's, it's a little more complicated than that. We all have the capacity. Everybody has the human capacity to do intention and to essentially create our world to heal ourselves. Um, but you need to know certain things about how to do it.Mischa Z: 00:33:00 Fantastic. So let tell me like, like let's let, cause I I'd be remiss if I didn't ask. So let's say we've got some, some, some listeners right now that are, are skeptical but open-minded, and they're like, I'll try some intention, stuff that Lynn's talking about. Um, so you've got a strategy for us. So give us the overarching and then maybe some, uh, a few of, uh, the tactics for a new, a new, a new entrant.Lynn McTaggart: 00:33:32 Okay. Well, it's hard for me to teach it in 10 minutes. I mean, these are 20 hour courses of mine, you know, but all I'm going to give you one tip that, that almost nobody talks about who is trying to teach the power of thought, et cetera, et cetera. And that is the power of being specific. You know, most people think, oh, I'll send out a thought in the morning. I'll say, you know, I want to be rich and I want everybody, or I want to win the lottery. Let's say. And the problem is, they're not really telling the universe exactly what they want because most people, you know, people usually don't just want to be rich. You know, I want more, a lot of stuff. Now, what they want is a different job. Usually what they want is enough money to pay their bills.Lynn McTaggart: 00:34:27 What they want is enough time to be with their children or to be with their grandchildren or to pursue a hobby. They don't necessarily just want megabucks. So when I do is I work with people to say, okay, how much do you need? Like I put people into, in my courses, I put people into groups and we monitor them. I've been doing that since 2015 and monitor them for a whole year. And what ends up happening, which is fascinating to me is the groups that are committed that meet week after week after week for a solid year in those situations, pretty much a hundred percent of them will experience some sort of major change in their life, the change that they wanted. Um, and you know, whether it is their health or their finances or a new career or a new relationship or whatever. Um, but they are taught to be specific.Lynn McTaggart: 00:35:27 So if you need $99 and 30 cents, I tell you to intend for $99 and 30 cents, the other is the other big tip, is it all works so much better in a group. You know, I, it, the group size doesn't matter. And I've actually tested that in our intention experiments. One of the experiments I did where we were trying to make seeds grow faster, we were, I was working with the university of Arizona and I tried it six different times with six different size audiences. You know, my first audience was in Sydney, Australia, audience of 700. And then we had smaller audiences and Rhinebeck, New York, and a bigger audience over the internet of thousands of people. We tried all these different sizes in different locations, and we found that size totally didn't matter what mattered was understanding of technique and experience and intending. Um, for instance, a group of healing touch professionals were one of those audiences and they there's, our seeds grew twice as high compared to controls with them.Lynn McTaggart: 00:36:41 But, um, and distance didn't matter either distance didn't matter either. So we have tested it so size doesn't matter, but technique does. So it can be a very large group. It can be a small group, but something about a group and with a group, a Power of Eight Group, sometimes you get intention, but a lot of other times you send intention most of the time. So the other big piece of this aside from a group kind of sense of oneness is, um, is altruism. Altruism is a big, big factor in these Power Of Eight Groups. Most of the time you're giving rather than receiving, but the receivers also get healed even when people aren't focusing on them. And that's the, the real amazing thingMischa Z: 00:37:36 Watching some of the testimonials and bill was one of the guys that was really fun to watch him who had like chronic, um, perhaps chronic depression or, and sort of had a very powerful feeling. Um, can you give me a specific example? Let's say within the last year of, uh, of somebody where they were not specific, and then you said, here's how I want you to be specific.Lynn McTaggart: 00:38:05 Yeah. I mean, I had one group where they were trying to do a group intention to win the lottery and it just wasn't working. And I said, well, is that how much you need? Do you need $13 million? And they said, no, Joe needs $20,000 and something cents for a car. And Sally needs X number of, of, you know, $15,000 for her kids' schooling, et cetera. And I said, okay, so in 10 for that, but in 10 separately, first or Sally then for Joe or whatever it was. And, and they suddenly started receiving, and I've also seen people where they're stuck, um, and nothing's happening. And I tell them finally, you know, what, "get off of yourself", start intending for someone else and see what happens. And certainly that was the case with many, many people. Um, I've had two very notable cases. One was Andy Spyros, who was trying to get a new job.Lynn McTaggart: 00:39:09 She was newly divorced. Um, and her group kept intending for her and nothing was happening. And she was very talented at marketing. She was talented at selling and coaching and nothing. So I finally just said, Andy, "get off of yourself". And 10 for somebody in the group who needs the intention more. So she did, she was intending for an, and what she did was she chose to intend for a young boy, uh, who called loop that I had introduced everybody to, um, who had tried to commit suicide at 15 because he broke up with this first serious girlfriend jumped off a 40 foot structure onto hard ground, nearly died. Everything was broken, his nerve damage, brain damage, everything. So I got all of my groups who were part of a course to send intention to Luke. And Andy, I said, get off of yourself, focus on Luke.Lynn McTaggart: 00:40:04 Now Luke got out of the hospital in record time and he is a totally normal 18 year old boy. Now, um, his parents sent me a photo of him now he's fantastic. You know, doctors didn't even think he was gonna live when he first came in. Maybe that was us. Maybe it was good doctoring. But the interesting thing was what's happened, Andy, because Andy, the week after she did that gets a call out of nowhere offering her, her dream job. So that has happened over and over and over again with people doing intention for someone else. And we have done brainwave studies on Power Of Eight Groups I worked with, um, with life university, which is the largest chiropractic university in the world to try to find out what on earth is going on with these Power Of Eight Groups. Why are they so powerful? Why are people getting healed who have all kinds of chronic problems, whether it is, you know, their health or their finances or whatever, their relationships or whatever.Lynn McTaggart: 00:41:10 And we found, we expected that the we'd put an EEG cap on one member of each of seven groups of student volunteers, never. They'd never done Power Of Eight Groups. They'd never even meditated. So we do this and we find, we thought we were going to find brainwave signatures that were identical to meditation, those of meditation. And they bizarrely, they were nothing like meditation. They were completely consistent though with the brainwave signatures of Sufi masters during, uh, chanting and Buddhist monks during ecstatic prayer, the parts of the brain involved with making us feel separate, like the parietal lobes that sit in the back of the head here, they help us navigate through space. They tell us, this is me. This is not me. They were dialed way down, but so were the parts of the brain, the right frontal lobe involved with worry, doubt negativity.Lynn McTaggart: 00:42:13 Those were all really, uh, decreased the brainwave brainwaves in those areas. So what these were, they were identical to those studies done by a guy called Dr. Andrew Newberg from university of Pennsylvania of Buddhist monks and Sufi masters. These were people in a state of ecstatic oneness, and that is also besides altruism. The big secret sauce here is that you get to experience what life is really like. We aren't separate. That's what all of that study I've found in the new science and the field I discovered was we aren't separate. We're all part of a giant quantum energy field. And we, but we don't feel that way. We don't experience life that way. We experience life as our own little lonely self on this little lonely planet. And here we have a situation where in a matter of minutes you can experience what life is really like, which is a state of this full alumnus.Mischa Z: 00:43:23 I love that. I'm all in on that idea right now of, uh, that illusion of separation and what tools are there to, to, um, to, to help shed those that, that illusion, like that's the illusion. Number one, that we're all separate. And I think as we get older as individuals, there's the word, separate individuals. Um, it's, it's I found in, in, in the, my forties, right? Like successing my way through those, that feeling of separation, uh, dating or, or all these things to fill that, that, uh, God-sized hole, if you want to call it or, yeah. I love the I'm all in, on I on how can I get rid of that, that illusion of separation. And for me, it, it includes judgment. Like I find like, like judging like that does that just adds to the, to that, to the separate I can go on and on about it. I'm sure. Yeah. Did you ever read the A Course In Miracles?Lynn McTaggart: 00:44:32 I know all about it. Well, Marianne Williamson is a very good friend, so I know all about it.Mischa Z: 00:44:37 Yeah. She was. I read her book, uh, the power, uh, or what is it A Return To Love a number of years ago. And so I was like, I'm getting the book, but I've been for two years. I it's been studying. It's been very powerful and, uh, it's good. Um, I'd love the, I know we're on a time limit, but I would again be remiss if I didn't emphasize the, so in recovery, 12 steps, all that, there's this idea of service, right? Like the way to freedom from addictions is service. That's one of the key steps, right? How can I be of service? How can I be of service? And it's that altruistic piece that you're talking about in your power of aids, um, which I love that concept of, and I liked the way you said it, get over yourself, right? If like, if I'm trying to fulfill some, uh, going need, that's like, I want success for success. Say, well, perhaps the universe is going to give you pushback. Versus if you're like, Hey, how can I help energetically this "Luke" for example? Right.Lynn McTaggart: 00:45:44 Well then what people learn that in a power of eight group, because as I say, um, if you're meeting every week, you only have time to do about three people that say, if you're meeting for an hour and you've got to do about 10 minutes each. So most of the time you're actually intending for someone else, but you are actually getting healed too. That's the extraordinary thing about them. They're virtuous circles. They, you heal and they heal. And when I started studying, cause again, I started seeing this, you know, what happened was this big, lovely accident back in 2008, where suddenly these small groups, people were getting healed. And as I say, I'm not a healer by background, a hard nose reporter. So I'm, I'm needing to test this and continuing to test it. And what I discovered over and over again was, you know, when people were sending intention to each other, even it didn't matter whether they were sent her a receiver, they were still getting healed.Lynn McTaggart: 00:46:53 As you mentioned, the guy called Wes, who was, had chronic depression participated in one 10 minute, um, Power Of Eight Group. He volunteered for, he wanted to be the subject, but there was a woman in the group with stage four cancer. And so he, he said, well, she should be the subject. I'll just be a sender. And the experience was so powerful for him. And Wes was somebody who had given up on life. He'd had a terrible life. He'd been drafted during the last years of the Vietnam war. Um, life had just gone down in a terrible spiral, him to the point where, when I met him at 65, he had kind of given up and it was kind of what's the use type of attitude,Mischa Z: 00:47:37 Tragic relationships too, right? LikeLynn McTaggart: 00:47:40 His love of his life died with fast growing cancer and one intention for that woman with stage four cancer. And he wakes up the next day. He has this amazing vision of meeting his 19 year old self back on campus. When he still had a lot of dreams, he wants to be a doctor. He was a smart guy. Um, and somehow that in that vision, his 19 year old self communicated to him, don't worry. There's still time. And he literally said to me, I get to start life over all over again at 65. And he was a changed person, started doing heavy exercise, getting in shape, started studying new things, started writing, really participating in his church, really friendly with everybody completely new individual. And I've seen that over and over again. Um, with this altruism, when you look at the science of altruism, you realize it's, it is like a, uh, it's like a Bulletproof fist. You know, people do things for other people, no matter how small live longer, happier, healthier lives. So there's a ton of research demonstrating how powerful getting off of yourself really is. And I've certainly seen that with Power Of Eight Group.Mischa Z: 00:49:05 I love that. I love the way you say that. Did you tell your kids that all the time get off of yourself?Lynn McTaggart: 00:49:12 Yeah, I do. So even somewhere to LA,Mischa Z: 00:49:15 It's so good. You know what I love about that too? I it's. So I think it's so profound. How, like a smile, it can be as simple as a smile to somebody walking down the street. Like there are it's I can get it in my head that I need to do this massive service thing. When it's in reality, it can be smile, a sense of Goodwill letting somebody jump in front of you and in traffic, whatever. Right. Would you concur on that or?Lynn McTaggart: 00:49:49 Well, I think that, um, I think that any kind of act, whether it is just taking out your neighbor's garbage, for instance, I mean, that's what the science shows is. Volunteers live longer, healthier, happier lives. People who are ill with something, um, if they help someone else with the same illness, they themselves are more likely to get better. There's all that kind of, there's so much science around altruism. It's not just, Hey, this would be a nice thing to do. This is a, this is a serious, healthy thing to do for the giver. But you know what I always tell people too, is you've got to do this power of eight group with a pure heart to you want to really get into wanting to get that other person better. And one of the great things about a Power Of Eight Group, it's so great for now because we've all been so isolated. You don't have to meet in person. You can meet on zoom, just like we're doing. Now. Most of my groups in all of my courses, they meet together. I usually put people in the same time zones, but they meet on zoom. Many of them are like family to each other, but they've never actually physically met. And it's, it's that kind of working over and over again together, having, knowing you've got this little intention, family is such a beautiful way to get over all of the isolation and fear that we're all experiencing now with COVID.Mischa Z: 00:51:23 Yeah. Um, I know you've got a time crunch and I could go on and on and I can keep asking questions, but I want to be respectful for you and your time. And, and I want to Lynn Lynne mctaggart.com, L Y N N E M C T a G G a R t.com. Uh, there's links for your books. The four books are there. Um, you, people can sign up for a webinar that looks super cool. Is that something where is that all recorded or do they get a taste of You?Lynn McTaggart: 00:51:59 Oh, I, all of my courses Mischa are live, so I've got a course coming up called intention essentials, which is, and what we do is we meet together, um, for two hours at a time, five sessions in, uh, in total. So it's 10 hours, but it's live and interactive. So I've got people doing intention together on putting them into groups, et cetera, online. So it's, it's very cool. And if you can't make one of the sessions or, or a number of them, it's always recorded. So that's coming up starting October 2nd, but no, all of my courses are live right.Mischa Z: 00:52:39 And there's looks like some really cool ones on there. Um, there's also, yeah.Lynn McTaggart: 00:52:43 And, um, we've Intention Essentials. You just have to follow the link on the top of Lynne mctaggart.com. You'll find out.Mischa Z: 00:52:50 Perfect. I also, there is, um, your, uh, retreats, which I'm, when I'm looking over here, I'm looking at your websites. So it was just prowling through your retreats and it looks like you have some really cool stuff going on with retreats. So we've got into the light, which is in Costa Rica. That's did we miss that one? No, that's uh, that's coming up December and thenLynn McTaggart: 00:53:17 I've got a, uh, it's over new year's. Cause we decided people were just so sad about COVID and having difficulty that what we tend to run in our entreat retreats is I work with my husband who authored a book called "The Untrue Story Of You", which is all about how we are controlled by our past and our past isn't that time is an energy as he puts it and not a dimension, it's an energy and it lives through you and it actually creates you. So we do a course called you know, "healing yourself from your past" with, with the Power Of Eight. And we use intention to go back in time, not to change what did happen, but to change your perception of what happened and give you back your power. And that's been very, very healing. So we've got one in Costa Rica, which is going to be so exciting because we're going to have a new year's celebration and celebrate going, coming into the light after the, all of this darkness of COVID. So that's also on my website too.Mischa Z: 00:54:29 Yeah. Fantastic. And yes, it's under the events section. Now we've got one healing the past with the power of eight, which is what you're talking about in Italy. I'm looking at this going, oh my gosh, this is an amazing, an amazing experience in an amazing place. So 2022, if somebody wants to stretch it out to, then we can go to Italy.Lynn McTaggart: 00:54:50 Absolutely. We're doing something we're going to be up in Damman her, which is that amazing underground batch of tunnels and cathedrals in Northern Italy. So we'll be doing that too. We just run one or two retreats a year, but they're really, really wonderful. And we have a coterie of other classes. I also just ran a big intention experiment to heal Afghanistan, and we had both Muslims and, uh, Americans on it together, essentially healing each other. So that was, we had many thousands on that. That was just last Saturday for the 20th anniversary. I thought maybe we should have a different kind of image for nine 11.Mischa Z: 00:55:33 That's beautiful. So I know, um, the official scientific results are coming, but in the moment of the experience, I mean, I'm just getting, I just got the chills even thinking about, was it, was it, it must've been profound or maybe you give me five words on the experience?Lynn McTaggart: 00:55:51 Well, Misha, what I found with intention experiments, I've been lately bringing polarized communities together. Like we did a big one with Arabs and Israelis together, people from all over the Gulf states of Arab countries and, uh, audience of Israeli Jews had them all come together with special equipment that could put a camera in all in nine different locations. And they started sending love to each other at the end. So what I've been doing a lot of with intention experiments is finding that again, this is all about altruism. When you come together in a compassionate act, like sending intention to heal Afghanistan, something in your heart opens up. I survey people and I've done so since 2008, with my intention experiments. And I find that when people are doing an intention for peace for somewhere in the world, they themselves experienced peace in their lives. You know, they get over, they make up with the strange relatives. They get along better with their not so nice bosses. You know, they come together with their kids who haven't been speaking to them and, you know, they get healed in some way. They find more peace. They're hugging strangers. So I will be serving the people who are the participants of last Saturday. But if they're anything like every single other peace experiment I run, that's what happens. Okay.Mischa Z: 00:57:20 I can't tell you how many chills I just got while you were telling me that that's amazing. Um, so I did this, uh, summit. I put together 20 speakers. It was called the Tools For A Good LIfe Summit. Um, and I did it in August just went down in August and I brought in all these 20 modalities and one of them, so, you know, healers. So I went, uh, body mind, soul. So, uh, body mind spirit. So I started with mind. So I had, you know, Anthony trucks was on there talking about, uh, identity and, and such. And then, uh, you know, I had EFT, I had, uh, EMDR and then I had healers on their meditation and, you know, the, the full gamut. And so what happened was I was like, I really want somebody for intention. So back in June or whenever I was inviting people, you were one of the targets.Mischa Z: 00:58:14 I was like, I was so I'm looking at intention that, and I came across Lynne McTaggart and I'm like, so your publicist or schedule, I, I believe is who I reached out to. And she said, oh, you're super busy. Um, but you would gladly or be on the podcast. So thank you so much. And as I was doing my research and, you know, prepping, I ha I was like, oh my gosh, you are, excuse my language "badass". I was like, I was like, oh my gosh, I am so blessed. And I feel it now to have you on the podcast. And I'm just saying this, because, you know, I've been in, in recovery for, for decades, myself and, and lots of personal growth, lots of personal growth. And, you know, I've had these slap moments in my life where it's like, all right, you got to start meditating.Mischa Z: 00:59:13 You know, that was 10 years ago. Like you need to take meditating really seriously. Okay. And you know, just all this stuff and the service aspect, more ways to be of service service has been so powerful in my life. And I just say this in that I've got deep roots in some of the things you're talking about, and I just, it's such a gift to have you on here. And I want to encourage, I'm saying all this, because I want to encourage all my listeners. I'm looking at your website, like go to Lynnmctaggart.com. Look at all the good stuff, jump on some of your courses, get one of her books heck go to Italy, right? Like, like what an opportunity, um, to heal. And I just strongly believe in intention. And, and, uh, yeah, I just wanted to say that. So I, I, I, I probably should have started with all that, but I'm going to end with all that and just say, you're very powerful woman. Thank you so much. And, um, yeah. Anybody listening, go check out Lynnmctaggart.com, dive into her content, your content, and take advantage. Cause there, uh, you can feel that one with the world and who doesn't want that. Right.Lynn McTaggart: 01:00:29 Thank you so much. It's been really a pleasure to be with you Misha.Mischa Z: 01:00:33 Fantastic. Um, I'm going to hit stop and then, uh, we'll say goodbye offline.

The district court has ruled in the lawsuit between Epic and Apple over access to the Apple app store. Apple is claiming victory and Epic is appealing. But Apple's victory is not complete, and may have a worm at its core. Jamil Jaffer explains.Surprised that ransomware gangs REvil and Groove are back—and thumbing their noses at President Biden? Dmitri Alperovitch isn't. He explains why U.S. ransomware policy has failed so far. WhatsApp has finally figured out how to let users encrypt their chat backups in the cloud, to the surprise of many users who didn't realize their backups weren't encrypted. Speaking of the encryption debate, Dmitri notes that Proton Mail joined the scrum this week, in a way it no doubt regrets. After all its bragging that mail users' privacy is “protected by Swiss law,” Proton Mail disclosed that Swiss law can be surprisingly law enforcement friendly. Responding to a French request through Europol, Swiss authorities ordered the service to collect metadata on a particular account and overrode what had been seen as a Swiss legal requirement that users be notified promptly of such actions.  Is China suffering from Russia's Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) envy? I ask and David Kris answers: It sure looks that way, as China has begun trying to rally Chinese in America to support Chinese government positions on things like the origin of COVID. So far, China's record of success is as dismal as the GRU's but I argue that it poses a bigger problem for the body politic and Chinese American interest groups. Who'd have guessed? Turns out that the EU's always-flakey General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provision against allowing automated decision making that affects people isn't just a charming nostalgia act; it's yet another reason for Europe to be left behind in the technology race. Jamil reports on a high-powered UK task force recommendation that the Brits dump the provision in order to allow for the growth of an AI industry. David and I debate the meaning of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro banning social networks from removing political posts. And in a few quick hits: I praise the Biden administration (faintly) for finally kicking off serious negotiations with the EU about transatlantic data transfer. Dmitri dissects the undiplomatic speech of China's ambassador to the U.S. David downloads the inside poop on smart toilets. Among other things, they'll be identifying us with, uh, let's just call it the opposite of facial recognition.  And Dmitri offers a solution for the dual European Community encryption story.

Kala wants to know why we say soccer in the United States, when the rest of the world calls the game "football." In this episode we hear from people who make their living in the game: professional players, coaches and commentators. Download our learning guides: PDF | Google Slide | Transcript “Why is soccer called 'soccer,' instead of being called 'football?'” - Kala, Colchester, Vt. "It's an interesting question because so many people around the world play the game of football," said David Saward, now-retired men's coach at Middlebury College. "What happened with the words soccer and football goes back to the 1800s when the game was developed. There were two groups of people in Britain who got together to set the rules of two different games, one that was known as rugby football, and another that was known as association football. From those two first words: 'rugby' and 'association,' came two very separate games. Rugby was abbreviated to the word 'rugger.' And out of the word 'association' came 'soccer.' That's the root of where the two differences came." So although these days you probably won't hear many Brits calling the sport "soccer," the word actually originated there. Americans brought the nickname to the US, and as the sport became popular, soccer stuck. "When you look around the world," says Coach Saward, "there are all sorts of different forms of football: American football, Australian rules football, Gaelic football, rugby football and association football. I think for the clarity of everyone over here when we say the word football, we think of people running around with helmets and pads on; so soccer is a very clear distinction."

There you go. All right, Francis. Good morning. And it's Francis, is it Pish?Francis P: 00:00:12 Yeah. There's never like a wish, you know, you can put the accent on everything, but not always. So it's, [inaudible],Mischa Z  : 00:00:19 You know, I was originally going to say that, but I was like, I'll sound ignorant if I do that, butFrancis P: 00:00:25 See your intuition was right. Yes.Mischa Z  : 00:00:29 Follow it. Yeah. I love that thought. Um, so your, um, I asked you before we hit record where you were and your obviously French nationality, what's that? French Canadian.Francis P: 00:00:45 French Canadian. Yeah. That's a big difference.Mischa Z  : 00:00:49 Big difference. Yes.Francis P: 00:00:52 So born in Montreal.Mischa Z  : 00:00:53 So tell me, what's the big difference about between, when you say that, what comes to your mind? The big difference.Francis P: 00:01:00 I can explain you with one word and I think you're going to explain it. You're going to understand it. So one time I was asking some French people, cause they're always, they always laugh about how we speak, uh, and that we speak like more patient. And then I said, oh really? All right. So I said, just tell me how you say Spiderman because in Montreal, if it's Spider-Man it's Spiderman or we're going to translate it, then we're going to say [inaudible] so it's like French or English. And, uh, and so I asked, I asked him, I said, how do you say Spiderman? And he said, speed up, man. Speed up, man. So I said, do you want to be saved by speed? That man, or you want to be saved by Spiderman? So he laughed. So that's the difference just in one word, because he would say he cheers to that right now. You know, it's like, oh, are you Spiderman or speed ah man,Mischa Z  : 00:01:51 Wait a minute. And I love that. Who do I want to be saved by clearly Spiderman.Francis P: 00:01:55 Yeah. Or see that man doing the shopping and the backing. And then that's that, that's all these speeds. So I'm like, wow, that's very, uh, that's very manly. That's really good. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but you know who you want to be saved by Now, you know? Oh, your speed a man. Okay.Mischa Z  : 00:02:23 Um, are you, so you're in Laguna beach, are you permanent permanently in the U S right now and have been for a while or just,Francis P: 00:02:34 Well, I do. I, uh, I do have a visa for five years because I have a business that's established here, so I can always renew it every year or every five years, which is really beautiful and amazing. So my permanent address is in, uh, Vancouver and now thanks to, thanks to COVID. I stayed a little bit longer and uh, I mean, I can say as long as I want really that's, that's what that's, that's the beauty. So, uh, you know, every time that I traveled and I come back and I show my visa, I'm very proud because it's an automatic access that like, okay, good. There you go. No questions asked. Yeah.Mischa Z  : 00:03:11 Yeah. Fantastic. And this, um, what percentage of Canada is French Canadian where there's, you're speaking French in that deep French roots, if I'm saying that?Francis P: 00:03:26 Uh, well, I mean, there's a, I believe it's, I don't, I don't know if it's going to be recorded. I think there's 11 provinces, uh, and some territories, but in Quebec that's a one in a major province. I think I'd say, you know, you have Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. Those are the major provinces in Canada. And so I would say percentage wise, it's hard to say, I think we there's about 9 million people in Quebec, um, and 37 in Canada, the whole country. So, you know, you can imagine that California is actually as big as, as a whole country of Canada. And then, um, in Quebec I'd say maybe 75% of it would speak French. So let's say nine, 7 million out of 37. So maybe a good 25%, 20%, 20% maybeMischa Z  : 00:04:21 AndFrancis P: 00:04:22 Estimate, but Montreal, most of the people in Montreal would speak. Uh, they can definitely speak English. There's even a part of it. That's the English part of, uh, of Montreal. But if you look at the whole province in itself, that would be more French than English. Yeah.Mischa Z  : 00:04:38 Okay. And your, your, um, your, uh, sociology or, um, geography professor might be a little upset right now that you didn't know the exact numbers.Francis P: 00:04:51 I, I know like now I feel, but it's, it's, it's been a while. I mean, I know I'm usually good with numbers. I think I know my population pretty well. Like in general, I always like to know like what the, how many people are living, you know, in the greater area of a big city and then the city itself. But, you know, it's always fascinating to see the concentration of people just in these little spots, which, you know, if you look at Canada, it's a huge country, but all people are at the bottom of the line. Like that's where all people are concentrated right. On the border, right. On the border.Mischa Z  : 00:05:26 And is that a resource or just, uh, a resource that's where the most resources are in the country or is that a, uh, climateFrancis P: 00:05:36 Climate? I think it's mostly climate. Yeah. And also, you know, if you look at the path, you know, just where it started with, uh, San on the St. Lawrence river, you know, every, all the exports and ports were coming through that. And then, you know, it went up to, up to Ontario and then you have the big, great lakes. So it's, that's what we share with you guys, the, you know, around Michigan and all of it. So, uh, we share these, these great lakes. And then, uh, I, I, that's one of the reasons, if you look at the Vancouver on the other side of the west side of Canada, then it's pretty much the same thing. As you know, it's, you know, where the Berard inlet is and where all the boats are coming from Pacific Asia.Mischa Z  : 00:06:18 So in America you've got, well, historically like the north, the south, right? The, the there's the Confederacy, what do we call the north? The, um, the union, let's say, um, is there that, has there been that sort of tension between, uh, like French speakingFrancis P: 00:06:40 Historically? Yes. In long time ago, but yeah, it was the upper Canada and lower Canada, so that's all, that's how they called it. And, uh, and then I think what United, the whole country is the, uh, railway. So, uh, so Canada was established in 1867. Then, uh, if you look at it's really a history for me right now, like going backwards, I think it was in 1760, that there was a, a war between French and the Brits. And, uh, we lost. And I think since, since then, that that became predominantly a little bit more, uh, Anglophone if you will. But we know that that's where people wanted to keep their rights. And so at one point, you know, even not too long ago, I think it was in 1995 and there was a referendum to see if people wanted to separate themselves from Canada. And, uh, and then it, uh, it was very, very close. I think it was 49, 50 1%. Yeah. So we, so it stayed, it stayed, but, you know, there's a, there's a lot of controversy as well because, um, I think that government or Canada spent a lot of money to try to convince all, uh, people not to, not to separate and of course some caravans of people, but it was very, very close, very close. So there was a closest, I think that it was, uh, for the separation or the independence, if you're, how, how, howMischa Z  : 00:08:06 Old were you at that? At that point? IFrancis P: 00:08:08 Was, uh, I think 16, 17. I remember that, you know, I w I wasn't able to vote at that time then, uh, but everyone was, I think, you know, for us, it's 18 years old, you can roll. So it was, it was something that everyone was watching. Like that was pretty important.Mischa Z  : 00:08:25 Were you, did you have opinions about it at the time, or were you like, let me go out and hang out with my friendsFrancis P: 00:08:32 At the time I had my opinion and I think I've had the chance to travel. I was, I think I was more pro independence in a way, but not none in the way that I felt that it was, you know, saying, oh, you guys are wrong or whatnot. It was more about preserving the culture, but then at the same time, over time, you with all the travels that I've done, I think it was I've realized that, especially when I went to Sweden, because I studied five months in Sweden and what was fascinating about the countries that they were only eight or 9 million people, and they were speaking many languages, Swedish, Finnish, English, sometimes German, French, and you're thinking, wow, you know, these guys are awesome and they never, and never felt that they wanted to preserve their culture because you know, that at the time unwell was company from, uh, Volvo, uh, many big companies that were established in, in Sweden, small country, almost the size of Quebec.Francis P: 00:09:34 And so I felt, you know, if you really, if you, if you travel a lot and you, you, you will, by default love your culture. And you'll never be scared of losing it because look at the Sweeds, they, they spoke five languages. And so, so I kind of gave a different perspective and I felt, you know, you can definitely be integrated then, you know, I, I, I would say before you, you, you are worried about your own culture, make sure you live your own culture, you know, and then, and that, and, and then, then that way, then you don't need to worry about it because if you're, if you love your culture, of course, like the people that the kids are going to speak French and whatnot. So, yeah, but I mean, what I remember, what I remember for me is, is that at the time the politicians were a little bit too focused on, I felt putting like, okay, this is the bad side.Francis P: 00:10:25 Well, I don't know if I, if it's real, that's what I remember. But for me, what was important, it would have been kind of a thing. Yeah. And if I would have been a politician at the time, and I remember saying that to my friends, I said, let's not even focus on independence and just say, that's, what's going to happen. But first let's focus on economy. Let's focus on this. Let's focus on that. And then, uh, that's why I think they lost at one point years after when they try it again, because it's like, let's make sure that the base is strong before you can even think about that. And so, uh, but then of course, you know, these politicians were from, uh, a narrow that, you know, there there's some pride too, to talk about it, but I think that's the reason why they lost because they were too focused on that versus saying let's, before we talk about anything, let's just have a good economy, let's have this.Francis P: 00:11:15 And then we'll introduce that. So they, the, the party lost in the election. And I think that's the reason why, because they put too much emphasis on that. It's, it was, it's almost like you have to have a timing for it, but right now, I mean, I'm a citizen of the world. And I think, yeah, it's, you know, it's when you travel and you see, there's no, there's a beauty of different cultures. And I think what's important is really to integrate ourselves together and just appreciate it. And being curious about, Hey, you know, like what, what are you doing? And then, you know, I moved in Vancouver and I, it was a different culture, you know, just in terms of a, the number of Asian people, the number of, of, uh, and then you have the, the Britts, the, the British people initially, and now, you know, so, so it was great. Like, I mean, I love traveling. I love cultures.Mischa Z  : 00:12:01 Yeah. I think that's such a powerful statement. Um, you know, I like the concept of don't, you know, if you embody your, your, uh, culture, you know, and then you don't have to have fear of losing it, and then there's the illusion of losing it anyway. Right. Um, but, but, um, how powerful, clearly traveling has been on you and the sort of the, you know, there's the concept sort of elusive, but that we're all one. Right. And if we can,Francis P: 00:12:35 Yeah, I will. I will always remember, Mischa is, uh, I'm pronouncing your name. Right, right. When I went to Sweden, it was really amazing because, uh, that experience exchange student experience was that in that city called wound, or at the time there was 90,000 people in the city and 45,000 for students. And, uh, and then for us, there's a lot of different cultures. And I will always remember one moment where it was a dinner and at the table, there was a Polish guy, French guy, uh, you know, woman and man, uh, UK Germany, like different. And, and, and all we talked about was pretty much the same thing. And we all connected with the same values, which is freedom, uh, compassion, dreams. And, uh, it was just fascinating that, you know, for me, it was the first time that I saw that, Hey, you know, I'm talking about the same thing, I'm from a different country, but we will all want the same. We're all United. And so it was really cool to see that too. And then I felt, man, we can all be together. You know, we, we all have these same human values and it was really cool to see. And so I, it gave me a lot of pleasure to see that and hope and say, wow, such a beautiful human race that we are like, we just, we talk about the same thing. We could be friends with anyone.Mischa Z  : 00:14:05 Yeah. Yeah. That's great.Francis P: 00:14:08 Deep down. Right. Like when you, just, when you put aside the religion, when you put aside politics, you put all of the sides. And I think that it was, I heard that there was a study. I don't know if it was with, uh, Heineken, the beer that, uh, kinda, or I'm probably maybe I'm wrong, but that there was a, uh, maybe a TV show where people were not talking about politics and not talking about religion. And they all got along very, very well until they introduced the subject of, of that. And then people started to have some friction, friction, which, which, to be honest, if I compare it, if I compare Canada to us, I mean, there's a lot of beautiful things that I love in both countries. One, I think very strong as a value for Canada is tolerance because there's so many cultures.Francis P: 00:14:56 I think they, there was a magazine once that they say, well, who's the Canadian. Like, if you can, and then there was different, you know, they took a, uh, little cartoon and they just draw like what it would look like. And so you had part of it, east Indian, part of it, French Canadian. And there, it was all different. The unity was really the tolerance because everyone's sitting in the same melting pot. Now, if you look at us, I think one of the value that's really cool is freedom. And I think that people really want to, they stand by their freedom. And so for me, like, I, I just wished that in the world that people can talk freely about the side of politics that they have, that the religion is to me, it's more about why, why are you talking this way? What makes you think that this is, this is so good.Francis P: 00:15:43 Just in being curious, not judging, just being curious and say, oh, that's interesting. I didn't see it from that angle. I see where you're coming from. And, uh, I'll give you a really cool example. That again, in terms of culture really changed my perspective because in Sweden, they told us that, uh, I don't know exactly when I, I'm not sure if it's still being done, but the woman that are the mothers, when they go to the grocery store, they would leave, leave their children in the stroller, outside the grocery store. And so at first, and they say, yeah, of course, because for them, children are jewels of, of, of the economy, jewels of, of the society. And so they will never, ever even do anything against them because they're so precious. And so what happened is that the mothers that are leaving their babies in the stroller, other mothers are taking care of, of the babies while the mothers is inside the grocery store.Francis P: 00:16:43 So it's, it's almost like, yeah, of course, I'm going to take care of your kid and you take care of mine. I do my thing. I come back, everyone's protected. But at first I felt, and I imagine that like in Canada, us, you will be, you would maybe go to jail. They would say, are you kidding me? Like you left your kid, but, but the mentality was so different that I understood what it is to have a different culture. And who are you to judge if you're brought up in that environment? That's how you think since you're, since they won, you would not even, you would not even think that it's wrong. You would just say, yeah, of course. Like we would never do that. Like even a criminal would not even touch the baby because that's part of ingrained in their, in their mind. Yeah. So, so now when you do that, you're thinking, okay, so who am I to judge? Because if I was brought up in that same mold, I would probably have very different values, very different opinions, very different things. So when you meet other people from different countries, it's good to just be really neutral and say, Hmm, why are you guys thinking just curiosity, come out of with curiosity?Mischa Z  : 00:17:49 What, what can I learn here? What can, what can, what can this add to my experience versus I need to change your way of thinking.Francis P: 00:17:57 Exactly. And, uh, and I think that personally, I feel, and that's just my opinion, but I think that America needs to be a little bit more like this it's it saddens me to see the polarity of people that are labeling themselves. Okay. Your red, your blue. Yeah. Okay. And, and, and it's almost, it feels like it's, if you're this color, then you will never change. And you're that type of person. And I'm thinking, well, that's just one politician this time. Do you know? It's, it represents a party. It's not a hundred percent of all the things, so there's good and bad in everything. And so let's just be a little bit more curious and what's the end goal. Everyone's wants to be happy. Everyone wants to have a good economy. Everyone wants to get along. Nobody wants to hurt each other. So then who's the best for that. And then, so that's my opinion, but I think so I feel like, uh, it's, it's important that people, you know, are not putting, putting labels on everything and say, this is your category. Don't talk to me. Hey, you know, we're human beings. So it goes back to, you know, the, the melting pot of all the people at the same table. And I think down deep down, people wants the same thing. They want the same thing.Mischa Z  : 00:19:10 Yeah. I would agree. And I generally speaking, I mean, you have some outliers, but I think the, of course, you know, the, the, the 22, the 80% that band in there.Francis P: 00:19:21 Yeah, yeah. You know, most, most of us, or all of the same two standard deviations, you know, people far remotely on that line, but I mean, I think it's normal. It's also more yeah.Mischa Z  : 00:19:33 Yeah. And then there's room for them to right. So exactly for them. Um, I, yeah, I think, I think, well, I want to, um, we can circle back around to this, but, uh, I, I just wanted to touch on a little bit of what you do and I like your, the resilient, I'm looking over here at your, at your website and resilience, the resilience element, or R E you've got, it's like breaking bad for any Americans or, you know, the breaking bad TV show. Uh,Francis P: 00:20:08 I heard about it. So what is it, solar? Why is that?Mischa Z  : 00:20:11 Oh, well it's because breaking bad, they have that. They do the B I think B E. So they do like an element element as well. And then elemental sign they've localized it or whatever. It's really cool. So your R E is reminiscent of that.Francis P: 00:20:26 Good. Well, I wonder when did the show start? Cause I mean, this logo for me was started five years ago. So maybe talking right now. No, but you know, what's interesting is that R E when you, uh, when you look on the periodic table, it means rhenium and a rhenium that's, that's the reason why I became the logo because rhenium was at the time, the element that had the highest boiling point of all the elements. So it was the most resilient element of all. And then they also used it to launch rockets. And so launching dreams, launching, you know, there's, there's something associated with it. And it's also a, uh, it's a byproduct. So it's not like readily available like that. It's a by-product of different things. And so for me, when I describe resilience, I don't think you can say that resilience is resilience.Francis P: 00:21:16 So what is a native? And so there's five components to it. And to me, if you have a goal, if you have a big dream and you want to know what the components are to, to achieve this dream and this goal, well, there's five components and the five components are first one clarity. I need to know where you, where you are, where you want to go. Uh, the second one is conviction. So really the reasons why you want to accomplish something. If, if you don't have enough motivation, then that's not, as soon as you have an obstacle, you're just going to give up. And then the third one is certainty. You know, is that in your mind a certainty that this is gonna, is going to happen, or that if something, if your goal is not achieved, that the certainty is that there's always a lesson and that it's gonna lead you to something beautiful.Francis P: 00:22:05 Then the fourth one is commitment. So obviously you got to take some actions and on a daily basis. And I think when I described commitment, what I'm seeing in general, when people are establishing a really resolutions in the beginning of the year, is that their commitments are too big. Meaning, you know, it's too big of a chunk. Like they, they will not do any, any, it would not go to the gym for a year. And then they would say, oh, I'm going to go three times a week. And that's going to be an hour each. And then I think after two weeks, 92% of the people are actually just giving up on their, on their resolutions. So just let's have small chunks that with the compounding effort effect of, of, of that, that's going to create your goal and that's going to be easy to accomplish.Francis P: 00:22:48 And most of the time, it's just going to be motivated to spend way more than 15 minutes a day on something as an example. And then the fifth one is courage because you can do all of these things, right? Knowing where you're going or where you are, where you're going, have a lot of reasons why motivations, and then you don't have this certainty factor, certainty factor. It can also be, imagine if you had this certainty as a baby that knows they're going to know they're going to walk. You know, they never questioned, they know they're going to walk, but they could fall a million times, but in their mind, of course, I'm going to walk. I'm not going to crawl. I'm not going to say, oh, you know, I've, I've, I've tried it all. I'm stopping analogy, but for them it's of course, of course.Francis P: 00:23:33 Yeah. So imagine if, if in your mind, of course, I'm going to do it. Of course I'm committed to it. And so that's, that's certainty. And then, you know, when you do commitment, then of course, it's going to lead you to, uh, to your goal as well. And sometimes you hit the wall and that's where courage comes in. That's where the science of happiness comes in, where, you know, you can do the things to kind of raise your vibration back to why you're doing it. Then you can slow down and rest and recoup and, uh, do the things that are really helping you in terms of your mind, your body and your soul. So it could be just, you know, meditating, exercising, but it's all based on the science of happiness. So those five components, when you have it, I would, I would, I would ask anyone, challenged me. Like if you have these five components, I think you will definitely achieve your goals. Definitely.Mischa Z  : 00:24:27 I love that. You know, what's interesting. I just thought just occurred to me. Um, I get to interview a lot of people, obviously for my podcast and I, and I, I get it interact as I'm sure you do with lots of different styles of people. And there's such a, there's such a, um, you know, you just talked about meditating and, and, and exercising and it, in a way that's like, yeah, that's natural. It's what you do. And that's just part of the routine. Right. And how then you've got sort of this, it's, it's very clear sides of that lifestyle. I don't know if lifestyle is the right word or ideal or mentality mindset call it, what you will, but you would have, then it's people are either like, oh yeah, I just do it. That's what you do. It's how you have a good life. Right. It's part of what I do. And then you've got other people that, that is such a, how can I say it? Um, there's resistance to it, right? Like, like it's, uh, if you were to talk to someone about it, it would be an, a very elusive ideal for them. Does that make sense when I say that?Francis P: 00:25:40 Yeah, I think, I think I understand it. Yeah. Uh, part of what you're saying, definitely. I mean, for me, it's just natural. It is natural. I've never realized that I'm this way, but I mean, I've been meditating for at least six years. I think if I look at my stats, you know, cause I'm using an insight timer, probably over 2003, 2,250 days, uh, that I've done at least one session of meditation. So, and, and the biggest thing that I've done also in terms of meditation was a 10 day silent meditation and in South Africa, which call it, which is called Vipassana. And I see, so for me a day without meditation is, uh, it's not the same. I see so many benefits. Cause you know, it's helps me to slow down to prime my brain to visualize when I want, and it's not always the same.Francis P: 00:26:29 So sometimes I would, I would do guided most of the time. It was not, but I'm also, uh, a student of Dr. Joe Dispenza who was phenomenal in its own way for creating the future that you really want creating it, uh, not being, uh, and also what I'm doing with Proctor Gallagher Institute, which is the same thing. It's, you're, you're seeing yourself with a goal already accomplish. So the meditation for me is that time, my time to start my day and end even before retiring and going to sleep. So this is, uh, I love, I just love this lifestyle. And I think I heard that Ray Dahlia, one of the most successful people in, in terms of wealth management is meditating at least two times a day, 30 minutes. And he's a very busy guy. So to spend an hour a day for someone that's really successful. And usually the argument is, well, I don't have the time, but the thing is, it slows down everything. And then instead of panicking or taking actions on the wrong things, you just have way more clarity. And with clarity, you're saving time. You're like, you're, you're a supernatural person. So that's, that's how I see meditation.Mischa Z  : 00:27:43 I would guess that six years ago you would have not had that there would have been more resistance or I don't know if contempts the right word. Um, what's what is the word? Uh, when you, uh, you question the viability of something.Francis P: 00:28:03 Yeah. Maybe there's a skepticism skepticism.Mischa Z  : 00:28:06 Thank you. So clearly something happened six ish, years ago, you start meditating, you develop the resilience element, like what's going on six years ago.Francis P: 00:28:18 Yeah. I think, I think I started to meditate a year before I created those resilience element. And the funny thing is that talking about commitment and you know, when I set a small, small little chunk at the time, for whatever reason, I felt that 10 minutes was too short and 15 too long, just like just five minutes difference. Right. So I decided, I decided to start with 13 minutes. I'm like, I'm going to set it at 13. I've been in sales all my life, I guess. Yeah. I'm going to cut in the middle it's 13 minutes and the two minutes I can believe it, but it was the time that I needed to remove the resistance and say, okay, I'm going to do that sometimes days where that's why I like incite them or it's just going so you can time it. You know, if you have three minutes, you have three minutes and that's it.Francis P: 00:29:07 But, uh, so I started to do that. And then a year after, I mean, if I go personal, I, you know, I've been engaged twice the first time it was when I was 24, I think. And three months before the wedding, my fiance just kind of talked to me in our living room. She said, I want to cancel the wedding. I thought, wow. And that was when I started the new job at Xerox, which is kind of the, the, uh, I call it the army of sales because they drill you. And if you're not good, you're out. So I had a lot of pressure to, to be good. And then I had that, that happens at the same time. And I was studying, you know, studying the specs of photocopiers, which was far from what I wanted to think about. Then I wished that it was on, on the construction site.Francis P: 00:29:54 Just no, not thinking. And, uh, so I was in my cubicle learning everything and I had to go through that. So that's just one thing that happened. And then years later, maybe 10 years I got engaged again. And, uh, and it didn't work out. And five years after that I saw I met this person and we thought that we can rekindle their relationship and it didn't work out. So maybe a month or two after I decided, you know what, I'm talking to my coach. I said, I'm, I'm, I'm good. Now I've moved on my time to, to work on my dreams and do what I'm good at. And so I, the idea at the time was I'm going to speak about communication and sales always love public speaking, done some standup, like maybe 10 times, just because I wanted to explore different ways of talking.Francis P: 00:30:43 And, and then I said, what about the big dream? What do you mean? And, and I was a bit upset that he asked me that question and I'm thinking we've been talking for a year, at least. And now you're asking me this questions. Why are you asking me this question? So, you know, cause I want, I, I thought in my mind, I'm going to work every day on, on my goal. And I'm going to create this course in 21 days. And now he's saying, what about the big dream? And I'm thinking, are you listening to me? And he said, okay. So I'm going to ask you to do something that you will not like, do you want to do it? The, what is that question? You're asking me and you're not telling me what it is you like, yeah. Do you want to do it?Francis P: 00:31:22 So maybe because of frustrations, I'm like, sure. I'll do it. What do you want me to do? I want you to do nothing for three days. I'm like, I just told you, I want to say, Hey, you just say you would, all right. So what am I supposed to do? Nothing. And so what does, what does that look like? It's like, well, no journaling, no looking at the TV, social media. And then I was asking, can I meditate then I, yes, you can. And you can see my friends. Yes. Can I go in nature? Nature. Yes. Uh, but then I said, well, what about my clients? You know, I was in real estate at the time. It's like your you're sneaky like, I just don't want you to start anything if they call you fine, but don't just, don't have your open houses. It's just don't do anything.Francis P: 00:32:06 Okay, cool. And then just before I left, I said, I want you to do, and other thing, and, um, I want you to go in five years from now in your agenda, and I want you to write this. Okay. What do you want me to write? It's like, you're going to write, this is the day that I die. So what do you want to do in between Francis what's? What's the point of living? Why are you here? What's your legacy? What do you want to become? Who do you want to with? And then, you know, I saw my big, big dream, what I wanted to do. And if there was a needle, they went bam, like in my big dream. And then you said, I don't want, I don't want the answer. Let's talk in three days. And, uh, so now I'm just left with this idea. And by the way, my coach at the time decided to do the same exercise, which was really cool. So we were actually, actually, I think we were three people not doing anything. And, uh,Mischa Z  : 00:33:09 Yes. Your question quick. Yeah. Ask you a question quick. Yeah. That you just said that moment of the big dream did that happen in that moment that he was like,Francis P: 00:33:21 Oh yeah. I mean, I, I mean, I knew that. I knew that if, you know, seriously, if I, and if I even would ask you or any people listening, you know, you have five years, if that's the case, what do you want to do? So my mom, I don't want to leave this world without achieving my dreams. Like, of course, like, and then I knew that it was instant, but then he didn't want me to answer that question right away either. And so I started to ruminate, what is it exactly that I wanted to do? And so during that three days, you know, you can journal, so you get the ideas. And then I would just pray, please. I just want to, like, you know, what can I put it in my mind somewhere? And you keep it, you know? And then like recycling, it's almost like it was filtering.Francis P: 00:34:06 And then some ideas would, would leave. Some would stay, but there was a predominant thought that stayed. And I was so looking forward to jot everything down, as soon as I, this exercise is done. And, you know, I, it was a very interesting, because the first day when they gave me that exercise, I thought, you know, I'm leaving my coach's office and I'm thinking, what am I going to do now? So, uh, I remember driving and saying, oh, maybe I can go for an ice cream. Nev I never go for an ice cream, but I thought, you know, I just saw a sign. And then, um, I'm, I'm stopping. And there's a huge line for people to wait for their ice cream cones. And I'm probably the only one with a big smile on my face. And I'm like, Hey, I'm waiting. This is good. I have nothing to do, you know, great 45 minutes that I don't have to worry about.Francis P: 00:34:59 And, uh, and then I remember walking on the streets and people would look at me and say, hi, you know, they, they, I guess I had a different vibe and I remember even meeting a friend and he said, you're so calm. Like you still come like, Hey, by the way, do you have time for another hour? I'm you know, and, and I was so present. Cause I had, like, I had nothing to do. I had no thinking of things to do. My exercise was you do nothing. So then I'm present, I'm fully present with what's happening.Mischa Z  : 00:35:34 What's next, what's coming my, or just open to, to let's see whatFrancis P: 00:35:39 I like. And there's no work to be done. Like it's clear you do nothing. Okay. So, and then what, like, I enjoy this moment. And so it was very, very powerful. And then, uh, three days after it, you know, in my mind, I thought, okay, so if I have only five years, which five years a great timeline, because if I say you have a week, it's very good to meet you for the podcast. Sorry, got to go. I have other things to do. Or if it's three months, six, you know, you might say I'm going to sell everything that are traveled, going to do everything that I want. But then at one point, if it's after a year, let's say you had a year of traveling. You do ever, you go everywhere, then what, then what? So then you're thinking, okay, so there's something bigger than I want to do. I want to leave something. And then to me, I thought, okay. So for any dreams that people would have, or that I want, I've seen that the successful people always had at one point or the other, a choice to make between giving up or continuing. And I thought, I want to share this mindset, this mindset of resilience to make sure that, you know, you're you keep on going, even though you have obstacles and losses in your life and setbacks, and then yeah,Mischa Z  : 00:36:56 Yeah. Hold that thought. Um, let's go back to, to you. And there's two other people. So you, your coach, your coach is going to do this with you. And then there was a third.Francis P: 00:37:08 Yeah. It was another of his clients. And, uh, and then we all, it was all very powerful, very powerful for all of us.Francis P: 00:37:18 Uh, I don't know the other guy, my coach is still my coach. So we, uh, I remember that for him too. It was something that changed. Um, just you just realize, why, why are you doing what you're doing? And what, what does it matter? You know? Uh, and so for me, I decided, okay, I'm going to build this company. And then I just knew that it was resilience. So yeah, it, it was, it was clear, so much clarity, uh, which is an exercise that I had to do. And if you say you don't have time, what's the point of today? What's, what's why here and, and, and really things can, can be the light. And we would, you know, if you really had that life sentence, you would take that time. You would. So, you know,Mischa Z  : 00:38:06 One thing I'm working on myself right now, um, or is so, you know, I'm building new things podcast and just did this summit. I've got other bigger, broader ideas, and it can be so easy to feel like I'm behind. I don't have time. Um, I will start comparing where I am to where you are, all these things. And I'd love what you said, because I'm trying to, like, if we can stay in the moment, which is so powerful and trust that, you know, I'm right where I'm supposed to be, and everything's happening when it's supposed to. I like this idea too, that there's the illusion that I can make it happen faster or slower. Right. So, um, what am I trying to say? It's early. I guess what I'm trying to say is, uh, so I'm, I'm, I'm literally have been writing down, you know, what, what if there was no hurry? What, what if things can be delayed? That's you said that, and I love that. It's like, Hey, wait, I can feel like there's this urgency that these things have to be done. And if they don't, it's the be all end all and whatever my vision is will collapse, but that's an illusion. And, and so, yeah, that's, that's what, maybe speak to that a little bit more of that.Francis P: 00:39:24 Yeah. There's definitely some illusions. And I think the illusions are coming from what the society is saying to our education, our parents, uh, I mean, at the end of the day, we have 95% of everything that we're doing that's unconscious or is, is it's just habit. Sure. It's habit thinking. And so we're being driven by our subconscious most 95% of the time. The beautiful thing is that we do have a conscious mind that is able to reject or accept any ideas. Uh, and then, you know, when we have a new idea that comes in and it goes into the subconscious, and then there's some conscious kid, and usually the subconscious will always accept, but they create some sort of a conflict. So because it's, it's, it's how you've been living for a long time. So, uh, the way to change things and change the illusion is to impress a new idea with repetition.Francis P: 00:40:16 That's, that's why, you know, the program that I'm in the Proctor Gallagher Institute is, is so, so amazing. And that's, and that's based on thinking we're rich people that had a lot of success. And so it's like meditation. It's like everything, you know, I, I couldn't even imagine that, that I didn't think that repetition was so important because, you know, we go to the gym, we know that you're not going to change your muscles in one day, but we read a book once and that's it. And then we end and it's because we go to school, we get information and then we're being tested once on it. And then we move on and we're being rewarded for gaining more information, but we're not being rewarded for the application of that information. So, so to change your subconscious mind and to change the illusions, to impress new ideas.Francis P: 00:41:10 And, uh, and then that's, that's why I'm fascinating about what I'm doing and helping other people to do that. And really we can do anything. And, and, and, you know, the fact that we think that there's not enough time or that, you know, it's, it's pretty amazing. When you ask questions, what is your concept of time? What is your concept of money? Do you feel that you have enough money making money as these, you know, in society? It's no, you got to work hard. You're going to hustle. You're going to do this. And the more and more I'm realizing with what I'm doing is it's all about the vibration. It's all about the being it's, it's, uh, you're not gonna, and it's who you are that creates everything. It's the be, do have a equation versus there have. And what I mean by that is when I was young, I always felt that I would be someone once I have XYZ, once I do this, and then I'm going to become a happy, I'm going to be happy once I have the house, once I have the dog that the marriage and everything, but it's the other way around, you're being the way you're you are, is creating the type of actions that are going to lead to what you have later on.Francis P: 00:42:21 It's not the other way around. So otherwise, if you're, if you're on the other side of the equation, then it's a chase. It's a, and then you go to the, the goalpost and then the whole journey is, is being miserable. I was one of them. You know, I, I was always, I stayed four years in a company for bonus and I was miserable and it caused me, I'm pretty sure my first relationship, the marriage, because, you know, my flame was diminishing and diminishing, diminishing instead of being happy in the journey. And we don't know when that life is going to end. So that's why I was so passionate about, you know, make, make, make it living, not being scared of dying, being scared of not living while you're here. And I think it's really, really important. That's why, and I have a friend that passed away two weeks ago, actually on my birthday, and I'm going to try not to be emotional, but it was, uh, you know, two weeks before that, uh, we had a conversation and I know that it was the last one because, you know, he had cancer for two years and, uh, and I wanted him to maybe participate in two or what we call a remote healing.Francis P: 00:43:36 So it's sending energy from different people to him. And he said, I'm good. I don't need this. I'm like, so what's going on? It's like, well, you know what? I think I'm, I think I'm done. I think I, I'm just sick of, of being sick. And, uh, I've had a good life, you know, I've, there's of course there's things that I wish I had, like a family and kids, but, you know, for the most part, I'm pretty happy at what I, what I, what I've done. And so imagine having a conversation with your best friend and you just, you know, it's the last one. So every second counts. Right? So you're, and then, um, I, it was a beautiful conversation, human conversation where I said, so what do you, uh, what do you recommend? Like if you had to send a message to the whole world, what would it be for you?Francis P: 00:44:26 And he said, well, just be yourself. Just be yourself. You're authentic self. He Said, don't let anyone sway you or anything. So where you from your past. And, uh, and for him that he see, you told me the story, his name is Neil Anderson. And he told me to study when he was young. And he used to go back at, at, at home. Cause his mom was asking him to always go back at home before he would do anything else playing or anything. And he said, at times when it was raining, I was watching it a TV show. And I think he was in Scotland at the time. And the TV show was that there was a psychologist that was bringing some actors and I guess talking about some different concept. And he was fascinated by it. He was fascinated, he told his dad, that's what I want to be.Francis P: 00:45:11 I want to be a psychologist. And his dad was more of an engineer type. And he said, no, you know, you're either an engineer or a doctor or you're you go in business. And so he ended up going into business and doing a lot of different things. It was successful. And then at one point I decided to be a psychologist and he did, and it was a really, really good one. And so he followed his heart and then later his, that was brought up. But so that's, I think that's why you say, you know, don't let anyone sway you from your path. And the path is very unique to everyone. And then he also said, I would wake up every day and I asked myself, how can I have a life of abundance and vitality? And then I said, uh, how do you define abundance?Francis P: 00:45:52 He said, well, that's, that's the beauty of life. You're the one that created this one definition. So it was, so to me, I say that because after that, they kind of gave me a kick in my butt to a refocus on my project of documentary, on resilience element and interviewing the people because life is so precious and I want to live my life to the max and not let my fear and not let the society, the people, anything sway me from my path. And I think you really know what your path is when you're asking yourself like this kind of fake life sentence of five years, and it could be less, it could be more. And so really why are we here? Is that, is that to live in fear most of our time or more most of our life, or really go for it and, and do anything that we can to have a legacy, to have an impact, to help others and, and make, make something good out of our life. And that's why now I'm, that's, that's my driver. Driver to honor what my friend was saying and just help people to live their best life with their dreams. And if there's any obstacles, they're going to know what the resilience element is. And they're going to know the stories of people that against all of the, uh, they made it happen. And then now there's no excuses. You can use all the science, you can use the stories and they can do anything. So that's, that's why I'm doing what I'm doing.Mischa Z  : 00:47:22 Do you remember the point when Neil, um, I guess left his business life to start his psychology?Francis P: 00:47:30 That Um, I, I don't remember. I know that you just, uh, there's a moment where I wish I knew the answer, but he just decided to go forward. Cause I think at one point you realize why, why am I doing what I'm doing? And so maybe for some, you know, if they can ask themselves, is this really what I want? I buy Bower of that from somebody else? Is it my thing? Or is it somebody else? My parents, the society, whatever, because I believe that, you know, even my godfather told me when I was 16 and it was my birthday and he gave me a birthday card and he said, Francis, you know, now you're 16. That's awesome. And you're gonna make decisions for, for, for your career. Please don't make a decision for the paycheck. Do what makes your heart come alive. Otherwise you'll be poor all your life. And I've been following the advice.Francis P: 00:48:26 I, first time I had a job offer to job offer. One was 55,000, you know, when years ago, 20 more, and then the other 1 35, it was just 20,000 difference. But, you know, I felt 30, 40% more and international business or international company, a multinational, a great salary path. I don't know, but it was selling electronic parts. I didn't care about electronic parts, but Hey, you know, there's all that path versus another one, which was a smaller company traveling around the world for, I think it was dentistry, but you know, I was passionate about traveling and the cultures and everything, but the salary was not good. And so imagine if you take that same person, you have the one that's on the trajectory of fully living your passion fully being alive every day, not being in jail, not dying every day. And the other one that's alive, does what he loved.Francis P: 00:49:25 And then you become an expert. You would just use your, your you're gonna love what you do that, you know, your people are gravitating around you because you're the, your, your enjoy, your vibration is high. And 10 years later, I mean, money was not in be, even be part of the equation. First of all, you're happy every day. And I would probably guess that actually your fortune, whatever, how you call your fortune is, is way better. Like in terms of your health, your relationship, uh, maybe salary, maybe money, but, you know, it's, and it doesn't even matter. So I discovered that card 20 years after and, uh, wow. Okay. And that, around that time I decided to go for, and with the exercise and my coach and everything I decided to go for my dreams.Mischa Z  : 00:50:13 Do you think, um, it sounds to me like, uh, I'm my condolences for your, for your dear friend, Neil. Um, what a, what a heavy moment. And I mean, and how powerful that you could be there and, and show up for those conversations too. I think that that's, uh, that's, um, it's a gift, you know? And so thank you for sharing that. Um, that's, uh, it's good. It's good. I mean, those tragic circumstances that the beauty comes out of, right?Francis P: 00:50:50 Yeah. And you know, the funny thing is that he actually did die on my birthday, so I don't think it's a coincidence. So I see it as a rebirth day now every year. And, uh, and he took the time to even send like a message on Facebook, I guess, maybe a couple of hours. Cause I learned about it the day after. So I knew that it would come, I didn't know when, but yeah. What a beautiful gift you gave us or he gave me to, uh, and my friends, cause I thought about it, but you know, he's yeah, that was very instrumental.Mischa Z  : 00:51:24 Yeah. Sounds like maybe up until that moment, you were sort of, uh, lost sight of your vision for a minute. Okay.Francis P: 00:51:32 I mean, I was, I was recommending it, but I think it's just like, it's almost like the mail that just closed, you know, it's it's, it was, it was up in the air, but now, you know, it's, you know, I know. And uh, and that's, that's, that's his biggest gift, you know?Mischa Z  : 00:51:54 Yeah. So at your website, um, FrancisPiche.com and that's F R a N C I S P I C H e.com. That'll be in the show notes. Anybody can click, um, check it out. You have some great, a couple of cool interviews. There's one interview with uh Baptist de Pape. Yeah. Yeah. How awesome is that? Um, but I'm just looking at your, um, do you have extensive training and, and, and, uh, coaching and personal development and all this stuff, and it sounds like currently the Proctor Gallagher Institute, is that Bob Proctor or is itFrancis P: 00:52:37 Yeah, Bob Proctor is behind with, uh, Sandy Gallagher's. So it's Sandy Gallagher was an attorney, a merger acquisition attorney, and she just wanted to expand, uh, what Bob was teaching. And so right now, thanks to her and the merge of this organization, they're in more than 90 countries. And so, uh, it's a ripple effect of, and I, I, to be honest, the only thing that I knew about Bob to me and my mind was the movie that the secret. And I felt that I wasn't sure if I really liked, uh, Bob, I knew I had a lot of respect, but I, but now when I, when I discovered what he's talking about and merging what I've learned from Dr. Joe Dispenza and, and really talk, it's almost like a bridge of what I would call the 3d society, you know, the hustling and everything, and a five D, which is, you know, you, you tap into this field of consciousness and now magic starts to happen.Francis P: 00:53:30 And now it's quantum leaps. It's not a, you got to work hard for it. That's the merge that he has. So he is, so it felt that it was me, was me totally. And, and all the language that he's using in terms of the, is really a mindset program, business wealthy, or however you want to call it, but it was, it was me. And so I felt equipped to talk about it, coach it right away. And, uh, and I really underestimated how powerful it is until I started to do the program. I'm the product of the product, you know, and consulting and I apply and that's, and to me, I think I see him as a, as almost a, a grandpa, you know, the grandpa had a lot of success, the followed a mentor called Earl Nightingale, who had a lot of success who was talking about the thinking, thinking, thinking, thinking, grow rich book.Francis P: 00:54:18 And so, you know, of course these guys, there's a reason why they were successful. And so what Earl Nightingale told Bob was do what I say until we can prove me wrong. And, and then to me, it was okay. So if Bob did what he said, and then I'm going to do what Bob is asking me to do. And, uh, and that don't question it and it works. It's, that's why, you know, in terms of goals there, we're not even asking people to think about, Hey, how can you improve by 20% or 15%? They're saying, you know, you take your monthly, your annual income and converting into annual monthly income. So it's 12 times more. And the funny thing is that once you started think that way, and you raise your vibration to that level, your ideas are completely different. If I ask you, like, how can you improve your business by 10% or how can you 10 X your business, the ideas are not the same.Francis P: 00:55:16 And you know, everything that comes now is bigger ideas, bigger ways to accomplish it. And so now the sudden it's possible. It's completely possible. And, and, and the only reason why it's not possible is because of what we call the paradigm. And the paradigm is all your subconscious that you've been thinking about for a while. And so from people that they would probably say, it's impossible, 10, 10, X, it's impossible, but there's a million ways to create abundance. You know, people, even in the ones that have a salary, why, because, you know, you can start to do what you love and, uh, and do offer a service and you'd better be rewarded for it. You can establish a store, you can, there's so many ways to do it. Right. But yeah,Mischa Z  : 00:56:01 Yeah, I was gonna say it, uh, it, um, those ways are expanding exponentially just with technology and all this stuff. And, and there's, there's a thirst for, for that information to, or for, yeah. Um, I, I, um, you did some landmark stuff too. I see. You've done a bunch of stuff. Some Tony Robbins, uh, uh, I'm just, you know, uh, looking on your, on your sort of your history of, of coaching and your passion for it, and you love it clearly. And it's, and it, it's fun. It's fun to talk to you because you know, you, you definitely have a, a presence and, and, and that calmness that you're talking about and that being in the moment is, is very evident. And it'll be fun to see for people if it, if it transfers through, through the podcast. Right. Um, so I just want to acknowledge that.Mischa Z  : 00:57:03 So thank you for that, but I have, I, I, what I'm thinking is maybe you could speak to this quick. So somebody is in that spot where, where maybe there's a breakup in their life, right. That, that the woman of their dreams evaporated, or the man did, or, you know, you've been through a couple of heavy breakups along the way. Um, or perhaps there's that burnout moment, um, that burnout moment at work or career, or what have you. Um, and it's like, we know things have got to change for some of us, right? Some people not, but some of us it's like, wait, things have to go a different way. And thinking of your resilience element in your, you know, your clarity, conviction, uh, certainty, commitment, and courage, if someone's on the very front end of that. Right. So someone's like at the breaking point and they're like aware and ready to like, maybe plow forward in a new direction or take a leap or something like that. Like what, give me some like, tangible, workable tools, like a few things you're like, all right, if someone's in that spot and they know they are ready to change, or things have got to give, like give me something that somebody, some of the very front of end of that can doFrancis P: 00:58:30 Well. I think I'm going to give, um, I love to give a lot. I mean, I'm going to give a, what I always feel is a foundation of everything for before we even start to talk about the five components and those are very, and that's that's, if you, if people would be my clients, they'd be surprised how often we would actually go back to that basic and that foundation. And so there's a couple things that I think are very important. One, uh, is, is to say there's a book called "The Way Of Mastery". And, uh, one of the things that they mentioned is that, and I think landmark would probably touch on that as well, is that all events are neutral. Okay. Let that sink for a second. So what if I asked you, what do you think that means?Mischa Z  : 00:59:15 Yeah, to me, that's like, that's, that's this idea that the breakup was bad, but perhaps it's neutral, neither good nor bad. It just is.Francis P: 00:59:26 Everything. Yeah. Everything is, everything is just neutral. And so, because, I mean, maybe people are not going to see it, but it can imagine in their mind. So I have a cup, a cup that has my logo on it, and then you see, uh, something black and white. And then on the other side, that same cup there's, it's only black. So if I, if I would ask someone like, so what do you see? Like, what colors do you see? And it's a while I see white, then the black, what are you talking about? This is not white and black. This is, this is black. And you're like, what are you talking about? And then, and then you just realize that, you know, like turning on the other side and then, oh, it's black, you know, but it's just because it's a different angle. It's a different perception.Francis P: 01:00:07 Yeah. So, so what's in the way of something that's like, the cup is the cup. The cup is just the cup. Like an accident is an accident. What breakup is a breakup, everything is just is, but then you have, first of all, the first filter is perception. So all, if I look at, at a different angle, then I would discover that, oh, you're right. Like it's actually white and black, but then on top of it, there's also meaning. And so if I show you, if someone says, do you know that I don't like to mix white and black together? Or what are you talking? You're making me mad right now. You know, I hate that. You know, what are you talking about? This is only black. No, it's white and black. And so now this sudden, like the meaning on top of it is huge.Francis P: 01:00:50 So, you know, and then, so it's imagine your mom is saying Mischa you're, you're a piece of nothing. How would you feel? And then there's a two year old that says exactly the same thing. You are just a piece of, you would probably laugh. It's exactly the same, but you know, all of a sudden the meaning, because it's your mom, then now it's big thing though. Like now it hurts your, your, your heart, but essentially it's all the same. It's just all events are neutral. So the beauty of that is that now that we know it, we can choose, we can choose. This is very important. What I'm saying, choosing the perception, choosing the meaning. And then it's a different story. And if so, for someone that had a bleed or a breakup, and I think what's also important what I've learned with the Vipassana meditation and observing the thoughts and, and knowing that everything is in permanent is to go through the pain, really go through it, feel it, you know, I remember when another relationship where I wasn't sure if the person was cheating on me or not.Francis P: 01:02:00 And I remember having this meditation and I decided to go through it, like, let's say, okay, let's, let's go through the graphic of her cheating on let's, let's go like, instead of resisting, because the resistance is just creating this pain even longer. So now I decide, okay, I'm going to go through it because I had this experience in my body of having the pain during the meditation. And I went through it and I lived, and I felt a sensation, felt the sensation fully. And it's fascinating, whoa, this is intense. Wow. And the, and then eventually it evaporated. Yeah. So it was, it was an amazing learning experience. So I decided to go through this visual. Okay. Let's say she's cheating on me and everything. But then I realized, is this really above me? Is she really considering mean the whole, if like, if that would happen, would she even say I'm going to do that against Francis.Francis P: 01:02:52 I'm just totally going to him off. And, but it has nothing to do with my value. It has nothing that would be her decision to do something because of whatever the perception in the meeting sheet she had. Yeah. It had no, but so then when I discovered that I felt, well, it doesn't even matter. What I know is that if she doesn't, then it would be over because that's not my value, but it has nothing to do on my value, my worth. So, so, so now that I know it, I just, and then as soon as this meditation was over, I remember that the little inner voice was you got it, you got it. It doesn't matter. It's. And then five minutes after she called and she broke up. So, so I had a beautiful meditation right on time. It's almost like, yeah, you got it.Francis P: 01:03:45 Exercise. That's done on. And she did, in fact, uh, was with someone that I thought that maybe there was something, but, and you know what? It didn't matter because I felt well, of course, it's not, I'm happy for her. I'm really happy because this is a match for her, not a match for me. So the first, that's just the first foundation of saying, you know, all events are neutral, uh, and choosing. So, you know, it's when people say it's in a language, your language is a dead giveaway of your belief. So if you say, Hey, Mischa, you want to go to my party? You're like, uh, I might, I might be like. "I might" what is that? So it's not commitment. And a lot of people are keeping their option, be all open, but you're not committing to anything. So it's a, an old people would say, I have to do something.Francis P: 01:04:33 I got to do something. It's basically being a victim of not taking ownership of, of what you really want. It's not true that you have to do something because it's actually a choice. You know, I have to work. No, you don't, you don't, if you don't want to work, you don't while there's a consequence to it, but you choose. Yeah. It's better to say I choose something versus I have to, uh, Sufism. Now, this thing is bigger than you. So that's another distinction. So when I hear my clients, I say, Hey, what I choose? Yeah. And choose is now, this is beautiful because you feel empowered right away. You're choosing something. Nobody's telling you what to do. You're choosing, you're choosing your perception. You're the meaning. You're choosing all the time. And if you don't choose, if you don't do anything, you choose not to do anything. And, uh, and then, uh, another last aspect is, and Einstein said, the most important question that people can ask themselves is, do I believe that God or the universe is benevolent?Francis P: 01:05:39 So imagine how you live your life. When you think that life is bad, life can always have catastrophes and setbacks. And it's not. It's a, it's a bad world versus I believe that everything is benevolent. So that means that. Now, when I have a challenge, I know that this is for my highest good, it's a very different way to live life. And it's in some ways. And that happened to me a couple of times, is that when something happens out of nowhere, I'm almost excited. Cause I'm thinking, well, the universe, God is really helping me is saying, Hey, sorry, you're going to, you're going to fall right now. You're really going in a wrong direction. I got to help you. And that's what happened to me. Like, I mean, three months before the wedding, cause I was on the verge of like really pleasing, uh, not being happy and deciding that this is how I would live my life.Francis P: 01:06:33 And I would have been miserable, probably fig

Episode 47 : A Clockwork Orange with Shirley and Tony Jaffe Shirley Jaffe is a British actress who trained at the Central School of Speech & Drama in 1954. Among other early jobs, she was in the first British Theatre in the Round Company at Scarborough, with Stephen Joseph and later Alan Ayckbourn. Her film career began in the mid-'50s with Crime/Dramas The Passing Stranger in 1954, and The Secret Tent in 1956. Shirley was also a regular cast member of the long-running TV serial Emergency Ward 10 as Nurse Angela Foster in the late '60s, and in 1970 she appeared in Hammer's Taste the Blood of Dracula with the late great Christopher Lee. She appeared on television in the infamous Michael Jackson's Earth Song live performance at The Brits in 1996, and as a Greek nun in Little Britain Abroad. She's directed and acted in plays in Brighton, Edinburgh, The West End, and Helsinki festivals and recently played Irene in the award-winning British feature Ambleton Delight. She was nominated for a Star Award in the Brighton Fringe for her performance as "Nana" in the musical, Here Comes the Bride. More recently she appeared with her husband Tony in the music video to Spankox's “To The Club”. Her latest film is called Nurse Shirley Foster.  This is Kubrick's Universe and so…… in 1971 Shirley made an appearance in Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange, when she played a nurse who helps administer the first round of Ludovico's treatment to Alex DeLarge, of course played inimitably by Malcolm McDowell. Skybreak, the home she shared with her husband Tony, was also featured in the film, as the interior location for the scene in which Alex and his Droogs attack a writer and his wife (played by Patrick Magee and Adrienne Corri).

Betcha can't guess what Lex voted for. It starts with a B and ends with a J, but doesn't end with a Happy Ending. *rimshot* Low-hanging fruit, ladies and gentleman. We'll forever grasp for it. ❤️ Our second topic is the biggest differences between the books and flicks. Great question, Ken. It's not like any of us haven't read the series (if at all!) in over a decade. Would it have been too much for you to ask what happened on page 293 of Prisoner of Azkaban? Our third topic is how Warner Brothers would do a gritty reboot of the series. Why are you giving them these ideas, Art? Didn't the world suffer enough with the Snyderverse? Then again, Bruce Wayne is an orphan… Harry Potter is an orphan. That's gold, Jerry! Gold! Our fourth topic is where the Sorting Hat would drop yo ass at Hogwarts. Jeff's preference is House Stark and we're not sure how to break it to him. Meanwhile, Producer Kenny would like to wind up in the house where you're most likely ti live off someone else's dime. That sounds like Ravenclaw to us! Our final topic is really sticking it to that b-word J.K. Rowling: what would an Americanized-Harry Potter production look like? Matt's childlike whimsy was forever tainted when she vetoed the casting of Robin Williams as Hagrid. Perhaps it's time for America to give those Brits another lesson…
