Daily Emunah Podcast - Daily Emunah By Rabbi David Ashear

As we know, Chazal tell us קשה זיווגו של אדם כקריעת ים סוף. The process of finding one's zivug can be very difficult. Some have been waiting years to get married and others have been waiting decades. The nature of a person is to try to do everything in his power to speed up this process. And some may even do things that are irrational. We must always remember, the best hishtadlut we could make did not change, it is still and will always be heartfelt tefila . Yes, a person must make phone calls and yes, a person must agree to go out on the dates; this goes without saying, but beyond that it is tefila , tefila and more tefila . Hashem has been working on each person's zivug from before they were even born. Our tefila is that Hashem reveals to us the one He has been grooming to be our perfect zivug . We are asking Him to split that sea and lead us to the place that we need to be in to find that person. We must also remind ourselves that Hashem doesn't need our help. We never have to do anything wrong or something that might be detrimental to others to find our shidduch. A Rabbi from Brooklyn told me a story about how Hashem has just split the sea for his daughter and how they are now able to look back and see how involved Hashem has been for so many years, working on this way before they even entertained the idea of shidduchim . The Rabbi said, one year ago his brother's son, who was learning in the Philadelphia Yeshiva, recommended an outstanding boy there for his daughter. The Rabbi's nephew had already known this boy for 5 years and had the most amazing things to say about him. At that time, the boy, who we'll call Yehuda, was in Israel learning for the year. Six months later, the Rabbi's wife's sister's son who was learning in Israel in the same yeshiva as Yehuda also recommended him for their daughter. The Rabbi figured there was already a long line waiting for this boy, as it was known that a Sefardi boy at that caliber usually had a list of people waiting for him when he would become available. This boy's family is from California. The Rabbi's sister-in-law said to him and his wife, “Who knows, maybe the community in California will invite you to go speak there and you will be able to make a good impression on this boy's father.” The Rabbi's wife told her sister that was very unlikely as it was rare for her husband to be called to speak out of state. Exactly one week later, amazingly, this Rabbi got a phone call from that shul in California, asking if he would be interested in being part of a guest lecture series. The Rabbi admitted he is almost never called to speak out of town, and now, out of the tens of thousands of shuls across the world, he was called to speak at that specific shul where this boy's father prayed. He took the offer and flew down there. After his speech, he was introduced to the sponsor of the evening, who was none other than the father of the boy he wanted for his daughter. Their meeting went very well. Now, this Rabbi from Brooklyn only wanted a boy who learned in a high level yeshiva for his daughter. It was extremely uncommon for anyone from that community in California to go out of town to yeshiva for high school, let alone travel across the country for it. How did it happen? Some years back, a young man from this community in Brooklyn who loved learning Torah ran out of funds and was going to have to leave Kollel. Then he found out about a Lakewood Kollel opening in California that would give him what he needed to continue learning. He moved his entire family there to continue his studies. The first year there he had to teach in the local shul's night program. The two students he was given were this boy Yehuda and his father. At that time, Yehuda was in 8 th grade. The Rabbi learned with them for the entire year and spoke so highly of the yeshiva that he attended in his youth, the Philadelphia Yeshiva. By the end of the year, they were convinced that Yehuda should go there for high school. That is how Hashem brought this boy to the level that he needed to be on to marry this girl. And this is how Hashem introduced the father of this boy to this special Rabbi, by bringing him all the way to California to speak. Hashem is in charge of shidduchim . It can be a difficult process until the sea splits, but we must always remember, it will be our tefilot that will make it happen.

“Nước Việt Nam: a home, a cradle, a point of departure” (Gandhi, 1). The Vietnamese word nước embraces the duality of land and water with an idea of “home.” Through a nuanced examination of the meaning of homeland and politics of belonging, Evyn Lê Espiritu Gandhi proposes nước to understand complex positionalities of refugee settlers on lands sutured through the traumas of US empire, militarization, and settler colonialism. Division in area studies has foreclosed conversations on how histories of settler colonialism and empire bring to light unexpected connections between Indigenous people and settlers across the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. By bringing together Vietnamese refugee settlers in Israel Palestine and Guam, Gandhi asks the difficult question of how we can imagine decolonial futurities when the creation of “home” for refugee settlers was predicated on the settler colonial project of dispossessing Indigenous people. Drawing inspiration from nước that embraces contradictions through relationality, Gandhi charts both the archipelago of US empire and resistance to imagine decolonization based on fraught acknowledgement of histories and relationalities between people, land, and water. Gandhi's new monograph is a vital read for both scholars and public interested in critical refugee studies, Indigenous studies, settler colonialism, US empire, and archipelagic history.  Evyn Lê Espiritu Gandhi is an assistant professor of Asian American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (Tovaangar).

Recent years have seen out-of-control wildfires rage across remote Brazilian rainforests, densely populated California coastlines, and major cities in Australia. What connects these separate events is more than immediate devastation and human loss of life. In Global Burning: Rising Antidemocracy and the Climate Crisis (Stanford UP, 2022), Eve Darian-Smith contends that using fire as a symbolic and literal thread connecting different places around the world allows us to better understand the parallel, and related, trends of the growth of authoritarian politics and climate crises and their interconnected global consequences. Darian-Smith looks deeply into each of these three cases of catastrophic wildfires and finds key similarities in all of them. As political leaders and big business work together in the pursuit of profits and power, anti-environmentalism has become an essential political tool enabling the rise of extreme right governments and energizing their populist supporters. These are the governments that deny climate science, reject environmental protection laws, and foster exclusionary worldviews that exacerbate climate injustice. The fires in Australia, Brazil and the United States demand acknowledgment of the global systems of inequality that undergird them, connecting the political erosion of liberal democracy with the corrosion of the environment. Darian-Smith argues that these wildfires are closely linked through capitalism, colonialism, industrialization, and resource extraction. In thinking through wildfires as environmental and political phenomenon, Global Burning challenges readers to confront the interlocking powers that are ensuring our future ecological collapse.

Rivers host vibrant multispecies communities in their waters and along their banks, and, according to queer-trans-feminist river scientist Cleo Wölfle Hazard, their future vitality requires centering the values of justice, sovereignty, and dynamism. At the intersection of river sciences, queer and trans theory, and environmental justice, Underflows: Queer Trans Ecologies and River Justice (U Washington Press, 2022) explores river cultures and politics at five sites of water conflict and restoration in California, Oregon, and Washington. Incorporating work with salmon, beaver, and floodplain recovery projects, Wölfle Hazard weaves narratives about innovative field research practices with an affectively oriented queer and trans focus on love and grief for rivers and fish. Drawing on the idea of underflows--the parts of a river's flow that can't be seen, the underground currents that seep through soil or rise from aquifers through cracks in bedrock--Wölfle Hazard elucidates the underflows in river cultures, sciences, and politics where Native nations and marginalized communities fight to protect rivers. The result is a deeply moving account of why rivers matter for queer and trans life, offering critical insights that point to innovative ways of doing science that disrupt settler colonialism and new visions for justice in river governance.

Recent years have seen out-of-control wildfires rage across remote Brazilian rainforests, densely populated California coastlines, and major cities in Australia. What connects these separate events is more than immediate devastation and human loss of life. In Global Burning: Rising Antidemocracy and the Climate Crisis (Stanford UP, 2022), Eve Darian-Smith contends that using fire as a symbolic and literal thread connecting different places around the world allows us to better understand the parallel, and related, trends of the growth of authoritarian politics and climate crises and their interconnected global consequences. Darian-Smith looks deeply into each of these three cases of catastrophic wildfires and finds key similarities in all of them. As political leaders and big business work together in the pursuit of profits and power, anti-environmentalism has become an essential political tool enabling the rise of extreme right governments and energizing their populist supporters. These are the governments that deny climate science, reject environmental protection laws, and foster exclusionary worldviews that exacerbate climate injustice. The fires in Australia, Brazil and the United States demand acknowledgment of the global systems of inequality that undergird them, connecting the political erosion of liberal democracy with the corrosion of the environment. Darian-Smith argues that these wildfires are closely linked through capitalism, colonialism, industrialization, and resource extraction. In thinking through wildfires as environmental and political phenomenon, Global Burning challenges readers to confront the interlocking powers that are ensuring our future ecological collapse.

-How, despite our “giving” exteriors, are codependents emotionally unavailable in relationships? -When we codependents keep doing things for others, especially our partners, what are the consequences? (i.e., we rob them of their autonomy, create conditional love, etc.) -Why we need to ask: what is the relationship I want to be in INSTEAD OF who we want our partner to be? Thanks for tuning in! This week, I sat down with Kim Bielak, AMFT, to talk about codependency in couples. Kim shares with us about the familiar pattern of couples including one codependent partner and one “emotionally unavailable” partner–but we discuss how codependents are indeed emotionally unavailable too! We discuss how codependents are emotionally unavailable to themselves–so how can they ever truly be emotionally present for others? Kim describes how she works with couples to help them cultivate a relationship with themselves as individuals to then strengthen their relationship as partners. We end with some specific tips for you to integrate in your own life to improve your relationship with yourself. It's a must-listen! Thanks for your support!

Kim works with both individuals and couples through a highly integrative, holistic, and mindfulness-centered approach to helps clients slow down, relax their grip, and use curiosity and openness to explore the patterns that are currently holding them back. Kim has spent time as a former yoga teacher and life, career, and executive coach, all of which have contributed to additional perspectives from places like somatic psychology and positive psychology she brings into her work. You can following Kim on Instagram at @kimbielak or visit her website and sign up for her newsletter at kimbielak.com. More deets on this episode: We hear about Kim's perspective on the term codependency, which she emphasizes likely was an “adaptive” way to interact with others in the past. Wow! Kim shares about codependency in her own life, including her romantic relationships where she tended to find emotionally unavailable partners…but maybe she was emotionally unavailable too! Kim reflects on how she contributed to the unhealthy patterns in her relationship which hopefully helps you see how you too may be covertly avoiding intimacy with others by being so overly-focused on them.  We discuss the ways that Kim works with codependency in the couples she works with. She begins with boundaries, education, and acceptance. “If we enter into a relationship with someone, we have to accept them as they are. We can't create conditions to earn love.” Amen! Kim describes some suggestions she has for those who have codependent tendencies. First, practice self-compassion. From there, we focus on building our relationship with ourselves and developing our own social lives/hobbies/ways we want to spend our time. Kim concludes by emphasizing how, instead of thinking of the “person” we want to be with, we need to ask ourselves: What is the relationship I want to be in? It's important to ask this instead of thinking of “who” we want to be with.  It's a must-listen! Thanks for coming on Kim! Questions for you: What came up as you heard Kim's definition of codependency? How do you relate to Kim's examples of her codependency? What aspects of your codependency were you reminded of? How do you sense your codependency shows up in your relationship if you are part of a couple? When you keep doing things for others, what do you sense you are communicating to them?  Where can you bring in more self-compassion in your life? What is the relationship you want to be in? With yourself, with friends, with a partner, etc.? Thank you for listening!

[Content Warning: This episode contains references to suicide, mental illness, and sexual assault. Listener discretion advised.] Youtube spiritual guru Teal Swan says she saves lives. Others say she's dangerously death-obsessed. We say she's serving strong “9 Perfect Strangers” villain vibes with a side order of night terrors. But that's just us. We wanted an expert's perspective, so we called on investigative journalist Jennings Brown for this episode to help us understand more about Teal's world. As a senior reporter at Gizmodo, Jennings traveled to rural Utah, the forests of Costa Rica, and smack dab into the middle of Teal's inner circle to understand her teachings and investigate the deaths of some of her followers. His unprecedented access to her group is at the heart of a six part podcast called The Gateway - which we highly recommend as critical listening for anyone wanting to learn more about Teal's whole vibe from a safe distance. He joins us today to talk about the sharp edges woven into her carefully-curated, hypnotic image, and how spiritual hucksters are gaming the algorithm and manipulating people's most vulnerable moments. We also talk to him about his newest Spotify Original podcast series: Revelations which follows a California cult that combines doomsday prophecies and fine wine. And TBH, we get so carried away that we go into extra innings. Enjoy this first episode with Jennings - and we'll be back next week with part two.

Mazda is well-known for producing vehicles with uncommon handling precision and exceptional driving feel. Now the brand is bringing those attributes to another type of motoring — off-road. It's a departure but it tracks the rise in popularity of SUVs and crossovers. The all-new 2022 Mazda CX-50 is the standard-bearer in the move off-road. In this episode of America on the road we give the vehicle a very thorough road test in the hills outside Santa Barbara, California. Host Jack Nerad drove the CX-50 through the dirt and along the ridgelines. In the same episode, Co-Host Chris Teague tests an off-road specialist — the 2022 Toyota Tacoma TD Pro. The Tacoma has had a decades-long history as a stalwart off-road pickup, and the TRD Pro variant takes those capabilities to a new level. Continuing with the off-road theme, our special guest is David Partlow, chief engineer on the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe. Host Jack Nerad recently had a chance to drive the plug-in hybrid version of the new Grand Cherokee outside Austin, Texas, and it was impressive.

The Steller sea lion used to be a common sight along the Pacific coast, from Alaska to California. But for some reason, the sea lion's population plunged. So in 1990, the sea lion was placed on the endangered species list, which gave it legal protections. Thanks to conservation efforts, the species in the eastern half of its range recovered. And in 2013, the eastern Steller sea lion was removed from the endangered list.Over the decades, more than 700 species of plants and animals have been added to the endangered species list. Only about 30 have been taken off the list because they recovered.To be removed, there has to be an increase in the population of the threatened or endangered species. In the case of the sea lion, the population of the eastern group had climbed by more than four percent per year for 30 years. And the population has to be sustainable -- potential threats must be under control.The marine species that have been removed from the list include the brown pelican in Florida and Alabama, several groups of humpback whales, and one group of gray whales.Other species have been removed from the list because they shouldn't have been put there in the first place. A seagrass in Florida was dropped because it turned out to belong to a species that was healthy and widely spread.But some species aren't so lucky. The Caribbean monk seal was removed from the list in 2008 -- after it became extinct.

In the long history of strange events occurring in the lives of human beings, the drive for understanding has been, not surprisingly, shaped by the model of reality prevalent at the time. Thus, while our distant ancestors saw the appearance of strange, awe-inspiring non-human intelligences as a manifestation of angels and demons: entities normally bound to the spiritual domain beyond this mortal coil, modern westerners have tended to see more recent appearances of these non-human entities as the arrival of extraterrestrial entities who've traversed the vast expanse of outer space to get here. In both of these described kinds of encounters, the interpretation has less to do with the elements of the encounters themselves, and more to do with the overarching meaning-making model of a particular civilization. And, of course, this is not just a time-bound phenomenon. Because, even today, a Shamanistically-oriented culture is likely to see these Others in a very different light than a scientifically-minded society shaped by the values of the Enlightenment. In fact, when the gatekeepers of a particular society are convinced that certain kinds of described encounters just simply cannot be - as in modern western societies - then when these encounters are cloaked in a particularly potent degree of what is often termed High Strangeness, the event is just suppressed altogether, lest the witness be deemed mentally unstable or of questionable credibility. This of course doesn't mean that such events don't happen, but merely that they have no place to be categorized and analyzed within a particular framework. All this is to say, the annals of non-conventional encounters from across time serve as a kind of road map for our shifting collective attempt to describe reality itself. And to separate the understanding of these kinds of encounters from the overarching meaning model of a particular time and place in which they occurred is to miss a major point of the exercise; for these matters work hand in hand, in a coordinated and interwoven feedback loop of event and interpretation. Typically, while a certain brave subset of pioneers are willing to question the meaning model of a particular time and place, the overarching metanarrative doesn't begin to break down - making room for new and transcendent hypotheses - until the sheer volume of outlier data has created enough collective cognitive dissonance so as to make it clear that there is no other feasible way forward than to trail-blaze a new metanarrative. Speaking of trailblazing new metanarratives, today we're going to discuss the work of just such an individual. Donald Hoffman, an American cognitive psychologist and professor in the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, with joint appointments in the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, the Department of Philosophy, and the School of Computer Science, is someone who - decades ago - became convinced that the reality model that western society has been living under over the last several centuries simply cannot stand. From his perspective - and he is one of a growing segment within the scientific establishment - the data arising from diverse fields of study has made it clear that physicalism - the metaphysical view that all mental phenomena are ultimately physical phenomena, or necessitated by physical phenomena - is simply incorrect. As it pertains to the usual subject matter of this podcast, Hoffman's work opens up new, tantalizing and explanatorily powerful ways of making sense of the strange encounters we've been discussing, while also offering a robust explanation to make sense of the so-called Fermi Paradox. It is the implications of Hoffman's Conscious Realism as it pertains to the UFO Phenomenon and general paranormality that we'll be doing a deep dive into in this, the 66th episode of the Point of Convergence podcast. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/pointofconvergence/support
