Jennifer Senior was a long-time staff writer at New York magazine and a daily book critic for the NYT. Her own book is the bestseller, All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood. She’s now a staff writer at The Atlantic, where she won the 2022 Pulitzer for “What Bobby McIlvaine Left Behind,” a story about 9/11. But in this episode we primarily focus on her essay, “It’s Your Friends Who Break Your Heart.”You can listen to the episode right away in the audio player above (or click the dropdown menu to add the Dishcast to your podcast feed). For two clips of our convo — on why friends with different politics are increasingly rare, on how Jesus died for his friends — pop over to our YouTube page. A new transcript is up in honor of what we are still learning about Trump’s attempted violent coup: Bob Woodward and Robert Costa on the perpetual peril of Trump. Below is a segment of that convo — probably the most significant one we’ve had on the Dishcast yet:Turning to the debate over abortion in the ashes of Roe, a reader dissents:I’m having a hard time understanding why you’re so misleading about abortion rights in the US compared to other nations, and naive about protection of the other rights under the 14th Amendment. Germany allows abortions up to 12 weeks for any reason, but what’s remarkable about Germany is not the 12-week mark, but that Germany offers pre-natal care, child care, employment guarantees, etc. that make it much easier for a woman if she chooses to go through with her pregnancy. The US doesn’t have anything like this. And even with the new right in America pretending to hop on board the social insurance train, passing any laws in a conservative-majority Congress that would provide more social services to pregnant women would deliberately NOT address or protect the right of a woman to control her own fertility — that is, to decide to have a child or not. In other words, the interests of a woman’s bodily autonomy and reproductive control would be denied. That makes women, on the whole, unable to live freely in society. But we don’t have to hop over to Europe to run a comparison. Canada protects abortion rights for any reason, with most clinics providing the procedure up to 23 weeks. This aligns with the (previous) fetal viability cutoff that Roe protected. And recently Mexico decriminalized abortion entirely, which paves the way for full, legal abortion rights.The US is now the regressive anomaly, not the progressive outlier you insist we are. And your idea that abortion can just be decided via democracy is cute — maybe that would’ve been true in the past — but SCOTUS could care less about the legislative process. You only have to look at their recent gun decision to realize that. You should make these things clear when you discuss abortion, instead of conveniently obfuscating the context and facts.As far as your confidence that the other rights under the 14th Amendment — gay marriage, access to contraception, etc. — will stand firm, I’m not sure why. Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and Coney-Barrett evoked stare decisis in their confirmation hearings, and this turned out to be a shameless lie from all of them. With the conservative majority in place, they could then take up the Dobbs case and use it to overturn Roe entirely — stare decisis be damned.Alito left the door open to address Obergefell, etc. in his draft opinion, so why would you think Thomas taking it a step further is just him “trolling”? The majority of Americans wanted Roe left in place; its provisions were the compromise that balanced the interests of the woman with that of the fetus that you incorrectly thought was lacking. (Listen to Ezra Klein’s podcast with court expert Dahlia Lithwick to understand why that is). Yet despite its popularity, Roe was struck down. The majority of Americans support gay marriage. But the conservative court has publicly stated now that they don't care about what Americans want or think. Alito and Thomas have clearly said what they're willing to go after next. Kavanaugh playing footsie with the idea that those other rights are safe is just another lie that you are too willing to fall for, as I was too willing to think they wouldn't, in the end, touch Roe.As far as healthcare access in Germany, Katie Herzog made that point during our “Real Time” appearance last Friday:From a “Real Time” watcher:I disagree with you on quite a few issues, but appreciated your level-headed commentary on Bill Maher’s show. You’re one of the only people I saw today who forcefully made the point that the SCOTUS decision still allows for action by Congress — it’s a crucial point that has been totally lost in this discussion.From another fan of Bill’s show:I appreciated your take pointing out that the US is the only country that has made abortion rights a constitutional right, and I do understand your argument that this is something that needs to be decided through the democratic process. But I’m wondering if perhaps, on a deeper level, you’re shooting yourself in the foot. Your attitude has been for a long time that America is unique, exceptional, in its supposed commitment to individual freedom, as reflected in its constitution. Doesn’t that imply that enshrining personal rights in its constitution is in fact a perfect evocation to our country’s exceptionalism, what sets it apart from the cynical bickering and proceduralism of European parliamentary systems?I believe in democracy, tempered by constitutional restraints. So the kind of judicial supremacy you seem to be advocating seems outside that. I repeat that I would not have repealed Roe, for stare decisis and social stability reasons. But for the same reason, I wouldn’t have voted for it in 1973. I also believe that the Court could approximate your vision, in defending minority rights. But women are hardly a minority, and many women — at about the same rate as men — want abortion to be illegal.Many more dissents, and other reader comments on abortion, here. That roundup addressed the concern over stare decisis that readers keep bringing up. As I wrote then:Yes, I worry about stare decisis — but it is not an absolute bar to changing precedents. Akhil Amar, the renowned constitutional scholar at Yale, rebuts the same argument. Amar also just appeared on Bari’s podcast, in an episode titled, “The Yale Law Professor Who Is Anti-Roe But Pro-Choice” — a great listen.Bari addressed the Dobbs decision in her new piece, “The Post-Roe Era Begins.” Another reader looks at the legislative route:I think President Biden and the Democrats as a whole would be in a far better position with voters today if over the past 18 months they had taken that same “small bites” approach on a variety of other issues: border security, election reform and just about any other challenge where they now have nothing to show the American voters because they approached those issues if they had significant majorities in each house. They could even take this “small bites” approach right now on the abortion issue, given (as you’ve documented) that the vast majority of Americans favor access to abortions with reasonable restrictions. Instead, Chuck Schumer runs a bill that’s even more permissive than Roe.I know it’s naïve to think we can take politics out of policymaking, but maybe, given the election hand they were dealt, it would have been good politics to pursue progress over progressivism. Right now they’d be running on a far different record (one of being the adults in the room) and could present a much stronger claim for leading our nation. Instead, they wasted a lot of time and opportunity pretending they had the clout to adopt the entire far-left progressive agenda.Another reader delves into the Court precedents that Democrats are wringing their hands over:You wrote about Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell: “Thomas also concedes that there could be other constitutional defenses for these previous decisions beyond ‘substantive due process.’”There is one defense, at least. The 14th Amendment has a due process clause and an equal protection clause. When Casey upheld Roe, the right to abortion was based upon due process, not equal protection. Dobbs found that due process did not guarantee the right to abortion. Equal protection of the laws is different. If a state allows an opposite-sex couple to marry or have sex, but bans a similarly situated same-sex couple from doing so, then equal protection of the laws is denied based upon sex, in violation of the 14th Amendment. If there were a state where females were banned from obtaining abortions but males were specifically permitted to have abortions, then that would be a denial of equal protection, based upon sex. But there is, of course, no world in which that would happen, and if there were, the state could simply ban males from having abortions as well and cure the equal-protection problem. Obergefell was based upon both due process and equal protection, so if due process is removed we still have equal protection. Lawrence was decided on due process alone, but it easily could be upheld based upon equal protection. (Justice O’Connor, in concurring in the ruling, said she would have relied upon equal protection instead of due process.) So Lawrence and Obergefell seem safe. Griswold does not seem safe under equal protection, but it may be safe under other provisions, although no state is currently seriously trying to ban the sale of contraceptives. Although Bostock was a decision based upon the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and not on the Constitution, Gorsuch ruled that the law that banned sex discrimination in employment applied to gays and transgender people. His reasoning was that if you fire a female employee for being married to a women but don’t fire a male employee for being married to a woman, then you are discriminating based upon the employee’s sex. There is a very strong argument that the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause works similarly. I broadly agree with this. Speaking of the transgender debate, a parent writes:While I generally agree with your balanced approach, I think you are still missing what is fueling the alarm on the right. As a parent of a 14 year old, I’m very aware of the extraordinary confusion that some teens now face because of the mainstream promotion of gender identities. For many kids, all this is harmless and ridiculous, and they tune it out. For a very tiny number of kids, this information may be extremely necessary, and perhaps even lifesaving, so they don’t feel so alone. But unfortunately, I believe there is a quite significant number of kids that have come to believe that all their teen problems will be solved if they simply lop off a few body parts. A few days ago I caught up with a friend who is a wreck because her 14-year-old daughter asked if she could cut off her breasts. This girl has some issues with body anxiety and acceptance, like the majority of teen girls, and has now decided she can avoid all the bad aspects of maturing into a woman by simply becoming a man, which in her mind is closer to remaining a girl, which is what she really wants. The mother is trying to help every way she can, and is about as caring and progressive as a parent can possibly be. But you have to understand how parents today are simply helpless to combat the flood of bizarre, foolish, and/or utterly toxic information that their kids find on the internet, or in social media with their classmates. We entirely ban our 14-year-old from all social media, and from all internet sites except for those needed for school, because we have seen time and time again how kids’ lives are getting wrecked from all that sludge. Most parents are simply not equipped to handle it. Many aren’t able to police their child as thoroughly as we do, and for those on the right with kids, I believe this very real damage has caused some to turn to any platform such as QAnon or other fringe groups that can make sense of this real trauma and harm to their kids. If you don’t have kids, it’s very easy to dismiss this as hysteria. But if you are aware of what's happening to kids nowadays, it’s truly terrifying.Lisa Selin Davis would agree; her new piece on Substack is titled, “It’s a Terrifying Time to Have a Gender-Questioning Kid.” And I completely understand where the reader is coming from. I find the relentless promotion of concepts derived from critical gender and critical queer theory to be destabilizing to kids’ identities, lives and happiness. These woke fanatics are taking the real experience of less than a half percent of the population and imposing it as if it is some kind of choice for everyone else. This is called “inclusion.” It is actually “indoctrination.”Telling an impressionable gay boy he might be a girl throws a wrench into his psychological development, adding confusion, possible generating bodily mutilation. Making all of this as cool as possible — as so many teachers and schools now do — is downright disturbing. The whole idea that all children can choose their pronouns because the tiniest proportion have gender dysphoria is a form of insanity. But it’s an insanity based on critical theory whose goal is the dismantling of all norms, and deconstruction of objective reality by calling it a function of “white supremacy.” This next reader has “a theory I’ve wanted to float by you”:I’m increasingly becoming of the opinion that the modern trans/gender movement is the twisted offspring of something in the gay rights movement that we thought was a good thing but actually wasn’t: the notion that someone is “born that way.” Today, we increasingly feel the need to diagnose children who were “born a certain way” and then provide medical interventions for something that is aggressively conflating the physical and the mental. (I’m using the historical Abrahamic distinction between the two here, sure there’s a philosophical debate about whether or not this distinction exists.) And that makes perfect sense if you think that the foundation of acceptability for these immutable identities is determined at birth — we have medicine in service of zeitgeist.I think the original sin here is going with “what we could get done” in the gay rights movement and stopping before we finished the job — of letting everyone know that these are preferences, and you need to respect and love people regardless of the choices they make and not just because they “can’t help it” because they were “born that way.” If we were to do away with this biological imperative driving identity, we’d end up with what we should really be striving for: radical acceptance of personal choices, and deconstruction of gender roles and stereotypes without engaging in pseudoscience.The trouble with this argument, I think, is that it doesn’t reflect the experience of most gay people. We do not “choose” our orientation. That is the key point — whether that lack of choice is due to biology or early childhood or something else is irrelevant. And genuinely trans people do not choose to be trans either. It’s a profound disjunction between the sex they feel they are and the sex they actually are. It also may be caused by any number of things. But it is involuntary.The queer left rejects this view entirely — because, in their view, there is no underlying reality to human beings, biological or psychological. It’s all about “narratives” driven by “systems of power,” and being gay or trans is infinitely malleable. That’s why they continuously use a slur word for gays — “queer” — to deconstruct homosexuality itself, and turn it merely into one of many ways in which to dismantle liberal society. I regard the “queer left” as dangerous as the far right in its belief that involuntary homosexual orientation doesn’t exist. Lastly, a listener “would like to make a couple of suggestions for Dishcast guests”:1) Razib Khan — he has been blogging for 20 years on genetics, particularly ancient population movements (e.g. Denisovans and Yamnaya). His Unsupervised Learning is currently the second-highest-paid science substack after Scott Alexander. To give you a flavour, his post on the genetic history of Ashkenazi Jews was very popular. Khan also does culture war stuff, mostly because he is a scientist and believes in truth and science. He has subsequently been the subject of controversy, as you can see from his Wikipedia page — which isn’t really fair, but gives you a flavor. His post “Applying IQ to IQ: Selecting for smarts is important” is the kind of thing that gets him in trouble. He is my favourite public intellectual, in large part because he combines actual hardcore science information with anti-woke skepticism. And he is just generally a very smart and interesting guy. Though I’m a fan of his substack, I’d like to hear him on your podcast because I’d like to find out more about Razib as a person, how he feels about the controversies, etc.2) Claire Fox — Baroness Fox of Buckley — is a former communist turned libertarian and Brexiteer, once a member of European Parliament and now a life peer in the House of Lords. Her Twitter feed gives a pretty good idea of her interests and views. Here are some clips on cancel culture in higher education; single-sex spaces for women; and a libertarian view on smoking. She broadly belongs to the British “TERF island” of gender-critical feminists. I know you’ve had Kathleen Stock on your podcast already, but Fox’s background, libertarian views and current membership in the House of Lords make her particularly interesting.I know Razib and deeply admire him and his intellectual courage. And it’s true that, in real life, he’s a hoot, a lively conversationalist, with an amazing life story. Because of his views about the science of genetics and human populations, he is, of course, anathema to the woke left. One good reason to invite him on.

You've even questioned yourself as to how you could have grown into these thoughts. Am I crazy? When did I begin to think differently? Why do people in general, you're so limited thought process Rest assured, you are not alone. The world is slowly waking up to what you already know inside yet can't quite verbalize. Welcome to the spiritual dough podcast, the show that answers the question you never even knew to ask, but knew the answers to questions about you this world the people in it? Most importantly, how do I proceed? Now moving forward? We don't even have all the answers, but we sure do love living in the question some time for another head of spiritual Brandon Handley 0:36 one. Hey, there's spiritual dope. I'm on here today with our guests. Satyen Raja. He is a co founder with his wife, Suzanne Raja, that founded warrior sage back in 1999. That's the last millennia, right? So it's and they founded it with a mission to activate leaders with powerful missions to bring their dreams into reality. So for the past two decades, Sultana Suzanne utilized her three decades of immersion in wisdom, transformational and enlightenment methodologies to provide hundreds of trainings and workshops, international, Lee teaching 10s of 1000s of students, the art of the warrior, the art of sage and the art of the lover. So Sam, thanks for being on today. Satyen Raja 1:20 Brandon, thanks for having me. You're nice introduction. Brandon Handley 1:24 Awesome. So, you know, I usually like to start this off with the whole ideas outside. And I think you'll appreciate this, that we're, we're conduits for like universal energy, right? And whatever is coming through us today is for the listeners like highest and best good. Right? So what's coming through you today for that listener? Satyen Raja 1:43 Well, it's what you just said that we are conduits, we are the conduit. And one of the foundations of, you know, the philosophy that I am to live by is rather than seek freedom and love. Recognize we are the conduit of freedom and love, we already our freedom and love, we might not remember it, we might forget, look, you and I whoever's listening, we're free enough to step aside a few minutes in the middle of a day, how many people on the planet in the history of the planet, have even the time the energy to do so or even listen to this. So we're in a special category of beings who have the choice to go, I want to learn about being spiritually dope, I want to learn about deepening myself having more prosperity, deepening my content. So means we are already free in many, many, many, many ways. So the appreciation of our current state of freedom is valuable. And we also have to appreciate where do I have love who, where is the love? I have beautiful love with my wife, my family? My, my, my friends? My colleagues, of course, is their lack of stuff is their glass here and challenges here we all will have. And right now the challenges are magnified many fold as we know, from the planet due to all the circumstances. But can we anchor ourselves as love as freedom, rather than neurotically keep trying to seek it from stuff outside of us? Brandon Handley 3:13 Yeah, 100% I love that, right? Recognize really what we already have, and who we already are in this moment. Right? Without having to go beyond that. You know, as you're talking, it's just kind of reminds me of kind of the Buddha's story, you know, regardless of how real or true it really is. But like, you know, the idea of a woman says, saying, I want to be happy. And the Buddha is like, hey, drop the eye and the want just be, you know, happy. So it sounds a little bit like that's what you're saying, right? And again, look, it's super easy to look around and realize what we don't have. And I think that, that as a Western culture, that's what we've been trained to do. Right? With all the marketing and all the things hey, here's all the stuff you don't have you want this, that's what's gonna complete you. And so, so, you know, I love that I love what you're saying. So but here's what's cool about what you're doing right now, you've been doing this for a long period of time. And as you and I spoke about in the beginning, we connected through a mutual friend, lend right, who I've had on a previous podcast hasn't great conversations, and he introduced me to your book that is coming out. Let's see if I've got this in front of you here, the transcendent CEO, and I wanted to talk to you and share with the audience a little bit about what you're doing in that today. So let's just start off with a very thought and the idea of what does it mean to be a transcendent CEO? Satyen Raja 4:41 Well, I mean, a very blessed privileged position to be a guide and mentor, supporter of business leaders, founders, CEOs who are leading socially impactful companies that are here for the greater good. And the challenge with business leaders is we're stuck in an old paradigm of extreme reaction, greed, goal setting to achieve more and more money, more and more market gain. And you know, it's predatory. And it's almost militaristic, the idea of like, going to take over this merger, acquisition all the languaging. And the paradigm is based on a military, energetic and paradigm that is dead. If we keep going down that way, we're gonna destroy ourselves. Business leaders are some we are the most powerful people on the planet more powerful than clergy more powerful than politicians. Why? Because wielding Money, money, whether we like it or not, is a power on the planet. Now, it's not the money that's good or bad, or indifferent or neutral. It's how we use it. And how we use it is based on the depth, the resonance of our consciousness. If we're going to meet egoic state, we're going to how much money we have, we're going to correct continuously be voraciously looking for more. If we're in a weak state of being, which is the next evolution, then it's about sharing collective win win. But even that has a limit right now. The next stage of evolution, what I call the transcendent leadership, and the transcendence CEO is a leader who's become aware of the whole, they've had some type of spiritual awakening, they've had some type of Inner Awakening, where now they feel their symbiotic relationship with the whole existence. It's not a mental thing. They're not reading that we are one, they're not intuiting or hoping that Hey, are we interested, they know it, they got they've had some medicine journey. They've had shamanic experiences, they've had enlightening experiences, which have dropped the veils of separation. And now with that Omni wind consciousness, they're able to make decisions run their companies leave their personal lives, from a win for the whole of humanity. This is the next level. And I believe it's necessity. And those who aren't moving into that dimension are claiming that they're going to die, they're going to die on the vine, because that paradigm is dead. And it's self destructive. And whoever is still entertaining, it is going to reap the benefits, or I should say the destruction of that paradigm. But as you know, what you expressed at the beginning, we are in a whole new era where the transmission, the vibration is calling us into Gaia centric, Earth centric, unity. This is where we're going, this is where we're at, let's drop into it and make a difference with our businesses. So that's the that's the essential essence. Yeah, moving forward, it's about taking the path of least resistance and maximum impact, rather than will will will will willful power. We go from mule, to magician. That's, that's Brandon Handley 7:51 my Ultimate Edition. I like one of the things you threw out there a couple of things you threw out there that I found in the book that also resonated with me was the idea of the Omni win. I mean, I think we we say Win, win win. But sometimes there's a loser in there and looking for those Omni wins in these situations. That's the point we're trying to do. And as you spoke about, we we live in a culture and these corporations that you're talking is the hired mercenaries hired guns, right, you know, that we're talking about a militant state? And, you know, I don't think that you can really approach you know, something that's for the good of all, from a militant stance. Right. And so that's the stuff that you're sharing. And you talk about the Enlightened leader being necessary, right, and how that's going to be the change paradigm and how that's how we've got to move forward. Yeah, my question, I guess is, you know, is that something that you're able to help these leaders cultivate? Or is it something that these leaders have experienced? And then they're like, Well, how do I integrate this new way of being and knowing into my business? Satyen Raja 9:04 That's a great question. Brad needs both. You know, look, COVID has brought the world together. We all sharing the whole world, sharing a worldwide challenge over the last two years. Right now we've got more current challenges, wars, and all these other things going on. But that brought us together in a way seeing our humanity, it doesn't matter if you're the queen or a popper. All of us are vulnerable to these things, you know, and there's a great equalization in it knowing that in the invisible is our faith. Perhaps this is a humbling of our ego. But I think it's a good humbling and I think it's an invitation for all of us to recognize, I'm not even going to feel fulfilled unless what I'm doing. It has a good benefit for more than just myself and my family and my personal goals. It's not about becoming absolutely give everything away and treehugger and, and not have any care for your personal success. It's personal success and plus plus plus. So the paradigm I like to introduce, you know, the old paradigm was peak performance. Let's go from average in a low peak, then remove ourselves and we're able to get more done, be more effective, create more results in a shorter period of time, with more focus of who we are. Everyone focuses on the peak performance focus for too long burns out, I've seen it over and over families burning out, heads, you know, relationships, going through all types of strife and struggle, even when the businesses are going strong. Why because there's not a balance and equanimity and equilibrium of being. And so I really feel it's time that we embrace equilibrium, having a healthy family life, having a healthy body, having a healthy relationship to spirit to God to truth, to enlightened, whatever we want to call it. And then from the wisdom from oversaturation, in that our leadership in business is now wise, it's not extractive, it comes from wisdom. And this is, this is the era we're going into the era of universal wisdom, which I believe is the most important value right now to embrace. Brandon Handley 11:35 If you I mean, if you recall out what what Universal Wisdom means, like, I guess, a phrase or a paragraph, what would that sound like? Satyen Raja 11:45 Wisdom is tapping into the ancient knowing that's within us. That comes from all the wisdom traditions of east, west, north and south. There's things that masters have told us, of every ilk that is familiar, that's resonant. And those ancient wisdoms that our indigenous elders hold our elders hold from all around the world, from all cultures, we've made we've we've put a golden calf on the throne, and that success, money and peak performance, and all these things in that realm. But the wisdom shows us that peak existence is where the diamonds have lifeline. And peak existence is how is my life living, peak performance is you're going towards a goal of having more output more success in one area. Peak existence means I mean, join the whole spectrum of life being with my lady making love with my lady, taking my children out, having fun with my friends, having time to relax, and do nothing and enjoy nature and all the gifts of Mother Nature, as well as being focused on our success. And we're in an era that I've seen with the CEOs, I mentor, where we can truly have all of that without compromising at all the depth of who we are in our integrity. Brandon Handley 13:10 Yeah, that's awesome. I mean, because, again, breaking away from what we've had for the past 100 150 years, right, I think, to your point, we've seen the we saw the fractures and the fracturing through COVID. Or nobody escaped it. Like you said, Nobody got away from COVID. And, you know, what it did everybody experienced the same thing at the same time. Nobody, nobody got away from it. Right. And that burnout, and the willingness to, to try to continue as as though there were no pain, no pandemic here, nothing to see, right, everything. Everybody's everybody keep moving forward. And that really forced everybody to take a real look at themselves and get close and see themselves for who they were, and ask themselves Am I Am I living this peak existence? Like you're talking about? We don't know what's around the corner? How can I? How can I start living a peak existence? And I think that one of the formulas you give in the books is the five pillars right in the five s? Watch. Is there a little bit about those? Because I think that I think that those are kind of core when essential to not just the peak existence of a CEO but for any life. Satyen Raja 14:23 Absolutely. So one of my mentors, Kevin nation's business mentors, he shared with me his philosophy of these F's and and so faith, so I call them the I call them the freedoms, faith, family, finance, fitness and fun course you can add more apps to that. But faith is our spiritual connection to ourselves, our belief in ourselves, our belief in the higher power, our connection to the universe, is how connected we are to the synchronous flow of existence is what I call faith. It's very valuable to cultivate. Family of course, you know, we can enjoy all the riches of life. But if our family life if we're not having beautiful relationship and flow in our, with our intimates with our family members, there's an emptiness of life, there's an ache, because our home base is not there. So fostering and putting family people see which one you put first I go, I don't faith, family finance, fitness and fun. Our threads have a strong rope. Any one of them are weak. If you put pull on the rope, it'll break. Each one has to be healthy faith, family finances. There's a lot of focus on earning. But what about saving? What about spending? What about investing? What about dealing with your money from a place of the doubt that there's infinite, but and that you don't own anything, that we're just a steward of all our belongings and our money as we're here that stewardship energy is a very wise way of approaching it, it takes us out of the ego at faith, family finance, fitness. Our bodies are a vessel for our spirit. When we feel strong and healthy and alive and vital. To make love more, we're seeing more, we're respected more, we feel better about ourselves. And we got more energy to fulfill life, faith, family finance, fitness and fun. This is one of the ones I had to work on is a very focused individual. Now, before that, I would burn myself out years back. Now I make sure in my week, every night every day, I've got fun going on. Fun than this and fun with my wife and with my friends fun with my kids fun by just by myself. So when we have these faith, family finance, fitness, and fun, and we water each one like a garden, they all grow together into 12 into a inter weave into a very powerful rope that's unbreakable. And we can scale that all the way up to heaven. Brandon Handley 17:10 That's awesome. And, you know, I think that one of the things that, you know, knowing about you is a strong background in the martial arts was I think, you know, just has always kept you probably connected into at least some type of reflection, even though at certain points sounds like you, you went real hard, right? And just life in general. And I think that that's just kind of that's kind of the path, right? That's kind of this, this is what everybody tells you, you're supposed to do. Santana go go hard, go strong. Don't stop until you sounds like a Michael Jackson. So I'm gonna stop. So you had enough. But you go strong. And you find yourself you know, looking back and like what was all this for? Because you you find that you maybe you lost touch with your face, you find touch that you maybe lost touch with your family, and the fun. Maybe you've had a success and you're fit but like there's this vast amount of emptiness. But uh, you know, I know that last I read at least you know, you've you've got the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which I think that as we go, I practiced this myself and I love it. I don't think jujitsu. Yeah, listen without it. Listen, listen, 530 in the morning, you know, I jump out of bed and I make that part of you know, three days, three days a week, it's 530. In the morning, I'm on the mats, you know. And this, I love it. Because there's no ego there, right? There's no ego, you're you can't be in any better state of flow than when you're trying not to get choked. Right. And you know, as we're as we get older, we're still able to do this. And this is another place where we can put into practice maybe slowing down and teaching others Hey, listen, sure, you can go super fast and get it but maybe you're relying on your, your piss and vinegar as it were right. Versus like technique and just a practical, purposeful application. And again, this is stuff that I'm seeing you teach in the transcendent CEO, right. So when you approach are people approaching you or you going to companies and pitching I'm just kind of curious what this looks like from, you know, not necessarily even a business perspective, but how are you being approached and how's this I transcend the CEO reaching the ears of CEOs that might be willing. Satyen Raja 19:22 Most of my clients are all by referral. They've heard me on a talk or heard me somewhere, or I've shared on the stage for I've expressed in a conference. You know, like I invited do keynotes and such and, but, you know, I've been very blessed to have you know, my focus has not been on marketing. So this is for anyone in business. My focus has been on serving my clients so they have exceptional experiences, and results in their own personal lives, which then become a 10 times better marketer than anything I I could write or market or put out in ads and all that. That's because that's me, that's what's worked for me. For me, I just take my heart, my soul, when I have my clients, I want to flush out their dreams or aspirations, I want to take a look at the good, bad and ugly, what's working, what's not, where's their shadow, where's the ship, they don't want to look at and go right for that fearlessly. And then take them there. Why? Because as leaders, we got to we can't bullshit around with our shadows, we got to strengthen them, we got, we can't put them aside and show our shiny successful side. And inside, we got termites in our, in our cart or in our consciousness, right. So because I have that, how can I say, ferocious love to accept only the highest in those I work with, because I know they've got missions that are valuable, I don't bullshit with them. And I believe that my experience has been that attitude of love with fire, with care. Seeing the results in their life, that's where I put all my deepest investment on, and I trust the universe. In the return that results of that. Brandon Handley 21:17 That's awesome. And I love reading some of the stories in the book of you hanging out with Stuart while to write like so. I mean, you've had some really connections with some cool people, you've had this great journey, and you're able to share this with others to, you know, look, create connections to leaders, and oftentimes, you know, I think it's great look, for everybody to experience, you know, some type of enlightenment, some type of awakening some type of spirituality, right, like, you know, definitely connects with your all your five, right, your faith family, you know, but one of the things that I think is most neglected throughout, again, Western culture, and just speaking primarily from experiences face, right, and the spiritual connection, we're like, Listen, I'll get to that, like when I'm dead. Right. Like, I'm willing, I'm willing to, you know, gamble on the deathbed with that one. But I think that, you know, that's, that's too late, personally, and so, you know, having a CEO speak to you, you know, from that level, opens that up for the company, or the people that are, you know, within there to just say, wow, you know, if he's doing it, and he's talking about it, and he's sharing it, I might need to check this out. Right. Is that kind of the idea? Yes, yeah. Let's hear more about it. Satyen Raja 22:37 We follow people we trust, we follow people that are demonstrating lifestyle lifestyles that we value. There's a lot of great operators, a lot of bullshit con folks. There's all types of talk, talk talk. We've got Tech Talks every weekend going on great talks, who is doing the walking? Are we doing the walking? Are we doing the talking? So one of the things is to discern what's a talker, who's great at oration, and who's embodying and living it. My only concern is that we live these ancient principles and where I start, and everyone is invited to this, I believe a foundational start, is awakening to your true nature, the spiritual side. Now, faith to me is not belief in something that I don't know of. Faith is having an experience, of divinity, of union of truth, of that of essence, if you will, of enlightenment, from the experience orienting our life, to become Gerland with the truth of who we are not the identities. The shallowness is of ourselves, or the, if you will, the wobbliness is within our own psyche, but identified with the essence and you know, all the leaders, I take through the coaches that we got different levels, right I have, I've got about 300 coaches in my organization. And the first thing that we do with our clients is we take them through what we call kinjo ke NSHO. That comes from Japanese Zen tradition. And it's a process which helps people dissolve the barriers of what they're not and who they're not, and come into their true nature. Like for the first time, they wake up to know who they are, I am. Once you have that essential experience, everything you do if you're a business leader, you're a father, a mother, an athlete, you're an everyday person working, everything will be far more deeper, harmonious and connected to the universe, because you've discovered who you are. So that's an essential I'm going to recommend and challenge invite everyone to experience Brandon Handley 24:52 so as you would recommend that they check out what Kensho is or do you have something else that would help them to dissolve those barriers, right? Yes. Satyen Raja 24:59 Absolutely, and they can download that free on our warrior sage.com website, we've got three activations one is called fight. One is called the abundance activation. It's a one day complimentary, totally free, no strings attached seminar that you do at home with your beloved's friends, family members. There's another one called relationship activation to really up level your emotional IQ and your skill sets in all relationships, including intimate. And then the power activation is awakening your enlightened power, not the power of the ego, it's dissolving, it's enlightening, and all that's available, absolutely free, you can download it, experience it for yourself, it's less lecture, and it's exact guided processes. So get a friend, family member, a spouse, a child do with each other, and you see the results. Okay. Brandon Handley 25:51 Now, I love that. And a couple things in what you're saying here, too. I don't know if you blanked out and on the I am when it becomes too like who you are. Because it's almost ineffable, right. Like, it's this type of thing where like, you find out who you are. And that's it. There's, I think you talked a little bit earlier in the beginning, there's a there's a knowing, right, there's, there's no disputing what had happened. In that moment of awakening, of accessing realization, activate whatever you want to call, like, there's so many different ways you can do it. But like, once you're there, and you hit it, you're like, oh, shit, right, like everything. There's a big ol, like, everything just kind of moves to the left or whatever, right, like everything. In that moment. Everything is different. And even then, and I think that I think that a big challenge for a lot of people is to realize, you know, the awakening, that's just the start. Pray, I mean, like, the awakening is just like, Okay, you just got here. Thanks for showing up. Satyen Raja 26:59 When we go to bed at night, right, we sleep. When we wake up in the morning, it's not the end of the day, the waking up is the beginning of the day, right Brandon Handley 27:06 first? Yeah. 100% 100%. And I think that there's a challenge to a couple of things that you're saying. It's like, again, not power isn't an egoic sense. I remember. And this was I was just beginning, even just the podcasting and feeling, feeling encouraged to step into myself, right when I am stepping into, say, stepping into my power and talking to peers and said, you know, wouldn't it be great if you could step into your own power into your own greatness or like, wow, I'm not great. And so what is it that is keeping people from accepting the truth of who they are. Satyen Raja 27:46 It's the attachment to the identities that keep us safe, secure, and huddled in the known. Okay, safe, secure and huddled in the known to discover who we are. We have to have the willingness to go I know who I am already. I'm a father, I'm a husband and this and that of that I'm a friend of someone, I'm a son of my father. Those are all identities, all labels, your schooling your education, as you shared when one discovers who they are, it's like a spiritual soul orgasm, a recognition of who I am. That goes beyond words. It's beyond this world beyond this earth plane. There's no words for it. But we can talk about it I can talk about orgasm but if you haven't experienced orgasm, it's so much more than that what can be spoken about even you can talk volumes on it but one experiences profound in the same way waking up or what the Japanese called Kensho or in India Yogi's call it Samadhi in English we can call it the direct experience or the direct consciousness of your of who you are and what you are. So we call it the our I am this we can hear it. You can meditate you can do mantras or I am you can feel the center of I am this but it's not full enlightenment. It's that it's not a full awakening. Brandon Handley 29:17 Right there's a there's like I I consider myself awakened but I don't consider myself enlightened. Yes, right. So I mean, but I would still consider awakened just a different plane than I'd had existed before. Right as no better no worse. And it's look everybody's a Buddha, right? Like I get it like it resides in everybody. But there's still there's still more right? I just wanted to call that out, right? Like I don't Satyen Raja 29:45 in Japanese. In the zip tradition This can show or the initial waking ups. And Satori is a term given to sustain enlightenment which comes after maturation guidance, support or after the initial awakenings that so Satori represents the sustained state. And there's depths of that as well, right Brandon Handley 30:10 now, and I say, I don't know, right, like I'm my first time through. So, you know, so I guess the question I would have to write let's, you know, gain transcendence SEO, I think what you're doing in this is really awesome. Do one of the things that in the book, you recommend to use it as almost an Oracle? Right? You kind of open it. I don't know, if you mean Oracle, similar to like the eaching, you kind of open it and you get to a point, you're like, hey, what's on my mind at work? Today? Think of a reflective question something that's, you know, hard on me, opening the transcendent CEO book and be like, Oh, here's some stuff that I could work on. This is this is indicative of what I'm going through? Oh, here's some answers on how I can apply this. Satyen Raja 30:54 Right? Absolutely. You know, I designed it as an Oracle, anyone who is in business, or you're interested in leadership, or a leader, you're might not be a CEO, or founder, CEO. But we all are leaders, you might be the CEO of your household. You might be the CEO of yourself. Right? So this book goes into these principles, you can open it anywhere can incite reflection stories, wisdom, attunement. So it is like an oracle or an eaching, or a tarot deck. Easier to read that way. That way, you don't have to start getting to the end. Brandon Handley 31:34 For sure, and so of the people that you've shared this with and have worked through with, what would you say, has been the largest impact or Aha, teaching out of this book for for some years. Satyen Raja 31:50 It's what I said earlier meal to magician. tendency is in the wet in the whole world is to be overly willful, especially in leader ship positions, willful willful Drive, drive, drive, keep going take a breather, drive, drive drive, and it produces results. You know, the old paradigm, massive action equals massive results, it's a great paradigm. What we don't hear is also equals massive burnout. Behind the scenes, we don't hear about people exposing Crush It, massive it, right, right. When you say that, you'll end up being crushed, I've seen it over and over and over, every person that continues down that road, always has some backfire a boomerang backlash, some on physically, the relationship, something pans out, they get some they get burnt out, and they don't know what's going on, or they lose their fire. So the paradigm of going from hard work to a transcendent leader is the trans transition. And to deal with that we have to deal with our we have to transform our addiction to doing we have to transform our addiction to control. And, and and when we do that, in fact, the control and the commanding becomes 100 times stronger. You become like Archimedes, you get you're able to lift the whole world up with this with a lever, because you're not using willpower, you've made your internal lever so powerful, right? That's the key. That's a good formula to magician. And that's, I think, the essence of this book. Brandon Handley 33:34 And you've also got, you know, transcendent culture, which is the companion book with this. And to be honest, I haven't had a chance to jump into this one just yet. But, you know, is this where the leader can kind of refer to and how to grow and nurture their, their people talk to us a little bit about the comparison. Satyen Raja 33:52 Yeah, exactly. You nailed it, Brandon. So the transcendence seals for yourself and your own mastery and leadership, transcendent cultures. Now, how do you bring that into your teams, they bring in your family, your team dynamics, whether your team is 2345 or 1000. This we've always sages also chief, a cultural adviser for numerous companies. And we also bring in programs of coherence taking teams that are in chaotic state into coherence in less than two hours. That's powerful. That's part one of our reputations and fame and claim to fame is that we take the most ragtag crazy wild set of discontinuous and chaos filled teammates in a zoom call for two hours, we can really literally dissolve the major obstacles that got in their mindset and get them aligned and coherent and moving forward in a good way. And that to me, I believe human dynamics is the essence of and supporting the Hello in the happiness and the joy of healthy human dynamics in an organization, that's the key to making them grow. And 20 100x, which now I've seen with the companies, I mentor, many fold TEDx as a minimum that happens to them over over the time they work with me. Brandon Handley 35:19 Sure enough, super powerful. And I think that, you know, science is proving out, you know, a lot of what you're saying how you put people in this state of being, you can expect to have these type of returns the, the old fear and, and again, militant, you know, crack the whip or whatever, you know, run them down, run a run to the ground. Sure, to your point, we can get results that way. But, you know, you're gonna toss that one out and go get a new one. Or they'll quit. Satyen Raja 35:44 Right, right. Turnover churn rate. Brandon Handley 35:47 Right? So hey, Satya, I always been awesome. And I love it. I know, we don't have too much more time left. What, uh, what I got here for you is the fun portion of the podcasts. And it's what I like to think about is that this is a little bit like spiritual speed dating, right? Like somebody's gonna tune into Satya as podcasts, they're gonna be like, well, do I feel like spiritually dating site 10. And what he has has brought out for us today. And to that end, I've got a couple of questions, I'd like to ask you, you ready? Please? All right. And I know you're married, but spiritual Bachelard. Number one, you know, why are so many people depressed. Satyen Raja 36:25 They don't know what their true mission and purposes are. They're denying it, or they're avoiding it. Because even when you find what you're what you're really here for, right? And the way to ask, the way to know that is take some time, get a journey going or go for a walk, sit down at a river sit down in nature underneath a tree, pick a few hours, universe, me and my soul. What is mind to do now? What is not mine to do now in the world? Have a sheet write down what is mine to do? What is not mine to do? What is mine to do? What is not mine to do? Do that for an hour or two, you'll get more honed in to your center of what you're here to do when you do the depression will start to alleviate Brandon Handley 37:11 now. And, you know, that's also one of the exercises in the book, if I recall correctly. And so there's more more like that in the book. So thanks for sharing that. You know, then that reminds me to the call of the hero, right? Joseph Campbell's called the hero, right? If you find out what your purpose is, and you kind of reject it, it's just kind of keeps nagging at you. Right? And it keeps following you around. Like I'm still here, you still got your thing to fulfill. We talked about this? I don't know. I'm not a soul contract guy. Because I don't know enough on it. But But soul contracts, right? Say, Hey, we said we're gonna do this. And we showed up. So thank you for that answer. What is the relationship between science and religion? Satyen Raja 37:53 Well, in this day and age, all the lines are blurring, and science, philosophy spirituality are getting closer and closer together. Because we're noticing that universal laws or universal laws, doesn't matter what spectrum you're in. And I believe science. As we go deeper into the quantum mechanic dimension, it sounds more and more closer to spiritual dimensions. And one day, I believe will be a place where there's no distinction, where it's just a universal science that takes into account the observer, the subject, relationship, and all of the whole spectrum of the game. Brandon Handley 38:34 Yeah, I think it's been a lot of fun to watch them converge over the past couple of years. I don't know about you how kind of excited you are. When something comes out. You're like, oh, I can go to somebody and be like, it's not all woowoo here it is. I've got something for you. Right. Satyen Raja 38:49 But some of my top CEOs are like, some of the world's most brilliant scientists, like scientists, AI genius is a biotech geniuses I'm talking geniuses, right? But when they get the taste of the spiritual flavor and the awakening, they're like, Wow, the maturity of their science goes to a whole new level. Wisdom informs science. Brandon Handley 39:14 Sure. There's a correct me if I'm wrong, like I mean, there's a you know, what's the opposite of constriction? Right, there's a release, right? Because they've been going through constricted and they've been going through like, forcing and if they can sit back, release, relax, and I guess you receive, right is kind of how it works out. Well. Hey, Satsang has been so much fun. Is there anything else that you wanted to share prior to sign off today? Satyen Raja 39:39 Well, you know, I'm just very grateful for you your energy, the good work you're doing out in the world.

People like high calorie foods because the more calorie dense they are, the more dopamine is released in our brains. And, we get a sneak peek into what a typical day of eating looks like for her.

Jamel Howard commits to the 2023 Wisconsin Badgers football team, I talk about why his commitment is so important. Specifically he fits a need that the roster doesn't have a lot of after Keanu Benton. Wisconsin thrives when they can control the running game and get opposing offense into passing situations, to do that you need big defensive lineman, Howard fits that role to a T. Next I talk about the bevy of official visitors Wisconsin is still waiting on to make decisions. Why Lincoln Keinholz is so important to this class, why Joe Crocker is a grudge match for Wisconsin and MSU, why My'Keil Gardner is likely leaning a different direction and the importance of Tackett Curtis and Khalil Tate. Finally on Locked On Badgers we talk about the Gus Yalden interview; we talk about why he's going to be a star for the Badgers and how is basketball IQ likely sets him apart.

As leaders, we must work on ourselves to be more effective and efficient. In today's episode, Julian Hayes II shares his thoughts on slowing down to account for the fast-paced environment and setting performance standards for their goals. He advises us to pay attention to our health and set boundaries so we can live a life of thriving. Julian Hayes II is an author, an executive health and corporate wellness consultant, and the founder of The Art of Fitness & Life. His mission is to help entrepreneurs, executives, and high-achieving individuals live healthier, richer, and longer lives so they can run around with their great-great-grandchildren—not just see them. This mission is accomplished through precision performance longevity. The word “selfish” has a bad connotation, but listen in as Denis and Julian discuss how this can be a virtue and even be the critical factor to being at an optimal state and exuding abundance. In this episode: Julian shares how his life experiences prompted him to step up and become a leader. He discusses how it is vital to be proactive instead of reactive regarding health and fitness. Take a closer look into your habits and understand the difference between existing and thriving. Leaders today need to have a high IQ and EQ to succeed in today's fast-paced world. Leaders should slow down to speed up and take the time to analyze their decisions before making them. Julian discusses how being selfish and setting boundaries are essential and that doing so allows us to be much more effective and efficient leaders. He describes the two critical points to acquire as part of our habits - regeneration and priming. Key Takeaways: Small things compound, so pay attention and think ahead Do not underestimate the importance of sleep Leaders should be malleable on the way to reaching goals Sometimes, we need to slow down to speed up Schedule your health habits like it's an important meeting Exude abundance by pouring into yourself first Tweetable Quotes: “Sometimes, you have these little issues that come up, right? And I look at it like a crack in the dam. It's so insignificant, so small, that we just kind of overlook it. And we just go about our way. And then all of a sudden, this small crack leads to massive flooding in the corporate setting and leads to massive corporate issues.” - Julian Hayes II “Leadership now is being a much more holistic and well-rounded individual who has a high EQ and IQ as well, to both balance those things.” - Julian Hayes II “This world is so fast now. And it's easy to get caught in that. And you just start going at warp speed. And you get in the cycle of just doing things. But you don't take the time to even analyze. Is this the right thing to do? Do we need to slightly pivot to maybe make this a more efficient thing?” - Julian Hayes II Connect with Julian on https://twitter.com/thejulianhayes (Twitter) and https://www.linkedin.com/in/julianhayesii/ (LinkedIn).

Let's be honest when it comes to manifesting or attracting positive or negative things (or even safety) in life it can all feel very confusing and extremely esoteric. In some cases, you can be left feeling a sense of fear that you may manifest the wrong thing or even fear of people or negative things happening in life. And that's what Brandy will be talking about in today's IQ episode as she shares some powerful key insights that can help you to step into a feeling of “feeling safer” in life and safe in what you're manifesting - and also feel even more empowered in life period. So often it's easy to fall into patterns of victim or uncertainty of life or fearful that things can just happen out of nowhere but when you start to understand even more of how energy and patterns and manifesting work it can provide a feeling of safety and even empowerment in life itself. That said today's quick IQ is short but very insightful and you definitely won't want to miss this episode!

Click for full show notes, exercises, and parenting scripts from this episodeFor centuries, parents have been locked in a nature vs. nurture debate, trying to uncover the forces behind our teens' development. Some parents believe nature has majority control over who teens become, and that things like personality, mental health issues and risk of addiction are passed down through the gene pool. Others think that these factors are mainly influenced by socialization, parental behavior and cultural influence–meaning the way we treat our kids shapes who they become. When teens are exhibiting behavior we're not exactly proud of, it can be tempting to blame biological factors. We let ourselves off the hook, claiming that there's nothing we could have done to stop their substance use or aggression anyway. But constantly attributing kids' behavior to nature can be inaccurate and even harmful! It stops us from critically examining the way we've influenced our teens, and even perpetuates certain sexist or racist agendas by declaring “natural” differences as the foundation for discrimination.To understand the nuances of this ongoing nature vs. nurture debate, we're talking to Jesse Prinz, author of Beyond Human Nature: How Culture and Experience can Shape the Human Mind. Jesse is a Distinguished Professor of philosophy and Director of the Committee for Interdisciplinary Science Studies at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He's been conducting research on the mind for over twenty years, and has authored multiple books and over a hundred articles on topics like consciousness and emotion.In our interview, Jesse and I are discussing how using nature as the default explanation for kids' development can lead to harmful discrimination. We're also discussing how affluence plays a role in who teens become, and debating whether parents or peers have a biggest influence on teen behavior.Click for full show notes, exercises, and parenting scripts from this episode
In this episode of the Love Selling Hate Sales podcast, Joshua talks to professional trainer and facilitator, Frank T. Ziede talks about hiring applicants with emotional quotient or soft skills in mind.While there's a lot of emphasis on skills and a high intelligence quotient, Frank argues that innate qualities like self-motivation cannot be taught and are much harder to develop. Frank also talks about the shift in dynamics between applicants and companies. With job candidates having so many more career options today, companies also need to step up and ensure that they are adequately providing the needs of their employees. HIGHLIGHTSSoft skills are anything but Managers don't know how to deal with emotionsPeople will pay more for a better experience.Do you care about me, can I trust you, can you help me?Companies should hire both for IQ and EQThe hiring party should also put their best foot forwardQUOTESFrank: "There's a lot of people especially in the automotive world that have just felt like the number one thing that customers want is the lowest price. And there's a ton of research and data that points to that that's not the case. People will pay more for a better experience." Frank: "Human beings are like ATMs. You've got to figure out my pin code, and you've got to start making emotional deposits from the moment I meet you. But most people don't. Most people walk up and start withdrawing money." Frank: "Hire for their potential. Hire for their inspirational elements inside, their attributions slash talents. And then think to yourself, what tool can I put on their end. Because if they're not inspired on their own, if they don't have these internal attributes that are like the rocket fuel that's gonna guide them to this position, I can't teach that."

- Podcast presented by Chris Bowers and Candy Reid- Interviews by Chris Bowers, Candy Reid, Richard Connelly & Ursin Caderas- Tim Henman and Lindsey Davenport feautre by Tennis UnitedTAYLOR FRITZ ON WHY HE GIVES HIS COACHES FEEDBACK - ‘I want to tell the coach what I'm thinking in situations, why I did this, why I did that, because in my head it should give them a better understanding of why I'm hitting this shot, why I'm doing this in this moment, instead of them just telling me what to do. I'm not going to lie, sometimes I think my tennis IQ is very high and I just want to explain where I'm coming from. It's really just a better understanding type of thing between us and not me being stubborn'.TAYLOR FRITZ ON HIS ABILITY TO PLAY THROUGH INJURY - ‘I just feel that if I'm not injured to the point that I can't walk out on court that I feel like I can play. It's probably once of my best assets and biggest weaknesses is how stubborn I am and how I hate to pull out of tournaments and not play'.MAXIME CRESSY ON MEDITATION - ‘When I was 18 years old a coach introduced me to it because he knew I had some anger or some issues with emotions and hard to control and that's when I got introduced to the meditation world and it changed my life'.JACK DRAPER ON PLAYING NOVAK DJOKOVIC AT WIMBLEDON 2021 - 'That experience gave me a lot of different lessons and he exposed a lot of areas in my game, probably like he should do, he's number one in the world, but that gave me a lot of things to work on and improve in the coming months and I think this year I've been able to put that into action, stay injury-free and the year is going pretty quick'.STEFANOS TSITSIPAS ON HIS RELATIVE LACK OF GRASS COURT TENNIS - ‘I was thinking about it recently that I haven't played that much, but it probably just shows how new I am to the tour. We all know the grass season is not a very long season, In my opinion it should be longer, but absolutely I haven't played that much and I'm looking forward to playing on it as much as I can'.STEFANOS TSITSIPAS ON HIS ADIDAS SHOE ‘My face is on the shoe, it is really cool. I use to wear Stan Smith shoes as a young kid and back in the day when I used to buy them I would never really think that in a thousand years I would be competing with him now or not even really competing, but trying to take over'.DENIS SHAPOVALOV ON HIS RUN TO THE 2021 WIMBLEDON SEMI-FINALS - ‘I think everything just kind of clicked during this part of the season for me last year and I do think the grass really suits me and I think for a lefty with a lot of firepower it's a difficult surface to play against me on, so it definitely adds to my game to play on this surface'. LINDSAY DAVENPORT WIMBLEDON MEMORIES - 'The first time I went there I of course lost in the qualies and I remember I was pretty young, like 15 or 16 and I remember crying and then the next year I got into the main draw and I'll never forget this, I was up 6-2, 5-1 and I couldn't believe I was about to win a match and I ended up winning 10-8 in the third. You can't put into words why it makes you feel like that'.TIM HENMAN WIMBLEDON MEMORIES - ‘1997 I was playing Paul Haarhuis in the third round and when we came on court you know the centre court was absolutely packed and every shot I hit in the warm-up the crowd cheered and every shot he hit the crowd booed an in terms of atmosphere that was the best atmosphere I ever played in'. DANI VALLVERDU ON THE ATP COACHING TRIAL - ‘It will be a soft approach but I think it's the first step to introduce this coaching rule and I think it was well supported by the players and I think it's important for the coaches to know that, so it was a joint decision between the coaches pushing for it and the players being quite open that it was something important to get done'.

K čemu je to vlastně dobré?Následující půlrok bude pro české ministry i úředníky neobyčejně náročný. Kvůli českému předsednictví EU budou muset plnit roli rozhodčího pro všechny členské státy před evropskými orgány. Zároveň je to ale šance ukázat se na evropské scéně v lepším světle. Bude ale vláda Petra Fialy mít čas i na bobtnající domácí problémy?Češi v evropských institucích. Proč nemáme vliv?Velkým tématem je nedostatek Čechů na vlivných postech v evropských institucích. Na vině je nejen podfinancovanost, která nutí stážisty pomáhající s předsednictvím dokonce hledat si brigádu. Proč se neumíme prosadit v Bruselu sami a prosíme o pomoc Evropskou komisi? Má smysl stahovat si Čechy z evropských institucí zpět do státní správy? Nepomohou více našim zájmům na místě?Nezájem o fungování EU. Rozumíme unii?Evropská témata v českém veřejném prostoru dlouhodobě trpí kvůli nezájmu ze strany médií i politiků. „Když se podíváte na IQ průměrného europoslance a poslance, ten první na tom bude lépe,“ říká s nadsázkou novinář Ondřej Houska. Co vězí za nedostatkem zahraničních zpravodajů v Bruselu? A rozumí jak média, tak politici vůbec tomu, o čem EU rozhoduje?Priority předsednictví. Dokážeme pomoci Ukrajině?Předsednictví není ideální dobou, kdy by měla Praha prosazovat vlastní zájmy, přesto si vláda Petra Fialy za svou prioritu číslo jedna stanovila Ukrajinu. „EU se v následujících deseti letech rozšíří, ale záleží, zda tyto nové státy budou plnohodnotnými členy jako my, nebo jen udržovat se zbytkem užší ekonomické vazby,“ míní Aneta Zachová. Dokáže Kyjevu ve válce pomoct statut kandidátského státu? A co hodlá Petr Fiala a spol. podniknout v dalších oblastech jako je energetická bezpečnost nebo Green Deal?Speciál, v němž se dozvíte, proč evropští státníci neustále vzpomínají na party na zámku v Hluboké, co je odstrašujícím příkladem českého přístupu k Evropě, nebo zda EU směřuje k větší federalizaci.

Processing speed is the amount of time that we take to take in the information being presented to us, make sense of it, and respond to it. This can be visually when we are reading something, auditory when we are listening to something or someone is telling us something, or motor planning which basically means that even when a child has done a task before, every time it is like they are doing it for the first time because their brain isn't giving them the feedback they need. They might seem clumsy, it might take them what seems like forever to learn to tie their shoes and many physical tasks are just simply harder for them. The speed of how someone processes information is not related to their IQ or intelligence, it is simply that some individuals take longer to process the information they are taking in than others do. Many very intelligent people process information slowly. Unfortunately, slow processing can impact so many areas of their lives where they might already have challenges, like social settings and their educational setting. The problem with their struggles is that many people jump to the conclusion that they are unmotivated, lazy, or not focused. This is important for you to listen for because I promise you, if they are a slow processor, that is likely not the case. What if for a minute we just allowed them to be them? Slowing down and having a less rushed approach to life might be exactly what we need. If you are feeling alone on your journey or maybe you are looking for other moms to connect with who understand your day-to-day challenges, be sure that you check out all of the benefits available to you in our PRIVATE SISTERHOOD. www.notyouraverageautismmom.com

In this episode, Lisa A. Romano Life Coach and bestselling author will discuss what many spiritual teachers tend to avoid. While some teachers instruct a student to drop the mind, Lisa believes that observing the mind, and learning to fully accept the contents of the mind, rather than avoid or deny what we may discover, is key to creating transformative experiences in our lives. She believes that narcissistic relationships offer us the opportunity to observe where our minds are stuck, and thus, what attachments there are we need to release.

The goal of any relationship, society, or organization is to have enough emotional intelligence to build and restore communication rather than to destroy it. When people feel heard, understood, and seen, their productivity as well as level of cooperation increases. When you are dealing with a highly narcissistic person, you will notice they lack emotional intelligence. If you can spot their lack of Emotional IQ, it might be easier for you to avoid unnecessary arguments in the future and it might be easier to make tough decisions too. Lisa A. Romano Breakthrough Life Coach and bestselling author will break it all down in this episode.

Whose idea was this?It certainly wasn't mine —Perhaps it is yours?* * *The thread running through this series is the underlying connection, the various links, between Design thinking and Zen, and how they differ from conventional thinking and religion. In considering the topics of the times, such as the spate of school shootings and other mass murders recurring on a daily basis now, it may seem to be stretching this idea to its breaking point. But just consider: What part of these events is not the result of some design of human intent? And how is the design of the conventional response working, or not?After all, the federal government of the United States of America, and the governing bodies of its now fifty states or commonwealths, their counties, parishes (Louisiana) and boroughs (Alaska), cities, and other subdivisions, consisting of the repeat triumvirate of executive, legislative and judicial branches, did not fall out of the sky, like commandments from heaven. It was the product of intense debate documented in the Federalist Papers, and is the subject of continuing conflict concerning the nature of the democracy or republic the powers that be want to see evolve in the future. How is that working out?In Design, we say that you cannot design around human nature. You have to take it into account, warts and all. The design of the government of the USA was putatively intended to limit its powers to those that, if unlimited, would appeal to the worst instincts of human nature. In other words, government of the people, by the people and for the people, as honest Abe put it, is intended to govern, or control, the people themselves. Especially those in power. But we have seen this original design intent corrupted again and again, and by guess who? The people in power at the moment. And those in power have again and again attempted to establish dynasties, wherein they not only retain power for life, if possible, but also hand it down to their children in perpetuity, potentially, like some permanent potentate. As recently lavished upon the royal family, under the rubric of the queen's “platinum jubilee,” with grand — some might say gross — pageantry, in what was formerly Great Britain. Or witnessed in the Trumpist claim to entitlement in the USA. Not to mention the long, sad history of nepotist despots in South America and around the world. There apparently is no limit to human hubris, given the financial means to indulge it.In the face of the many absurdist reality shows on offer, in their disappointment and frustration, people naturally turn to sources of comfort and solace, such as religion or science. This is one of the main themes of my soon-to-drop second book, “The Razorblade of Zen,” positing Zen as a third alternative. But religion gets mixed up with politics, when we begin to see the local melodramas and misuses of governance in the light of a larger plan, namely a “divine plan” of God, who we imagine to be interested in, and intimately involved with, the now-continuous campaigns of mere mortals for earthly power. This generally turns out to be an ugly marriage, birthing many ugly babies. As a current example, some evangelistic sects are reportedly being torn apart by political and ideological conflicts insinuating themselves into the church as wedge issues stressing its fragile fellowship, and begging the question of God's will. Likewise, when we hope for a silver bullet from science, we are often disappointed.Here, in the dark interior of this particular Pandora's box, is where one of the approaches routinely applied in Design thinking may shed some light, or at least raise the appropriate challenges to conventional thinking. We call this particular exercise, “What if?” What if there were no government? How would you govern yourself? What if there actually is no god, at least not of the kind we imagine. Which, truth be told, is inevitably a projection of our own self-nature. What else would you expect from a person, in conceiving the kind of intelligence behind the creation and design of this world? Something inhuman? And therefore having little or no regard for your fate? That would not do. No, God, capital “G,” must surely be like us, or rather, like me. And probably more like me than thee, come to think of it.The concept of a personal God, like that of a personal soul, provides too ready an answer, too often a substitute for confronting inconvenient truths, just another foil for reinforcing our dubious self-identity. Matsuoka Roshi would often address the question of the existence and nature of God. He would say, “In Zen, who is Buddha? You are Buddha! In Zen, who is God? You are god!” He never claimed that he was God, or that he was Buddha. What could he possibly mean?I think we have to ask, What is Buddha? Again — aside from the capitalization indicating the historical Buddha Shakyamuni — “buddha” essentially means “the awakened one.” That is, consciousness itself. If this seems too simple and inadequate, your interpretation does not address the implications of consciousness. Or we might say, the miracle of consciousness. Nobody, not from the scientific end of the spectrum, nor from the religious perspective, really understands this phenomenon. Buddha himself did not understand it. The bare fact of sentient being is not something that can be understood.So if there is such a thing as God, it must have something to do with this consciousness we share with all sentient beings, to differing degrees, of course. Perhaps what Sensei meant is that the very consciousness that raises the question — Who is God? — is the answer to the question. The “sparrow quote” proclaims a belief in the omniscience and omnipresence of God, from the King James Bible:Not one sparrow can fall to the ground without God knowing it. And the very hairs on our heads are all numbered. So don't worry; we are more valuable to him than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31)The scientific question here would be “how,” as I suggest in my first book, “The Original Frontier.” How, exactly, does God register this relatively inconsequential event? Perhaps by dint of the sparrow's consciousness — of its own death? Or that of its mate? By the thud of the carcass striking the ground, heard by the local coterie of sentient predators, who would regard it as a snack? Or perhaps the swarm of scavenger rodents and insects who strip the flesh from the bones of the corpse? All of the above?In this analysis, “God” is all consciousness, mutual awareness of all sentient beings taken together. To a person who believes that there absolutely must be a separate “who” behind the “why” and “what” of existence, as well as the “how” — not to mention the “where and when” — it may seem self-evident that there is an “intelligent designer” behind what is arguably the intelligent design of the universe. But such a person, in order to discern the presence, must be ready and willing to consider the absence of God, as well. In other words, to take into consideration the possibility that there is no such God, as proof of concept. Otherwise, their God is an example of blind faith, a belief that is not seriously examined, but only adopted for convenience. If the reality of a benign overseer is to be proven out in one's own experience, it must begin from a baseline of the absence of that presence. The only way to distinguish an object is to separate it from its ground. The inability to do so is a bit like an optical illusion.So, what if there is no God? This would render our knee-jerk conventional resort to such aphorisms and euphemisms as “God's will” and “God moves in mysterious ways” largely feckless, in the face of such horrors as the insanity of war and mass killings, at the hands of our fellow man. Or that the trigger-man is simply “evil,” which in this context is a religious statement. These simplistic pat answers are evasive maneuvers to avoid the question, actually. If there were no God, we would have to consider an alternative approach to the definition of the problem at hand. Which is the essence of Design thinking.Assuming that there is no God on whom we can dump the blame, we have to move in a different direction toward a solution. This is a case of moving “what if” into the logic of “if, then.” If it is true that there is no God — remember, this is just a working premise, not an argument one way or the other — then we cannot turn to God, or our hopeful, self-centered characterizations of Him or Her to resolve our dilemma. We must turn to other sources. And what are those other sources? Usually, government. Back to the justice system and the powers-that-be. But if they are based on the same framework — “In God we trust” — then we are caught in a tautology, a forever self-fulfilling prophecy that can do no more than chase its own tail. “Our thoughts and prayers are with you.” How to break out of this cycle?Or we can turn to Science, with a capital “S,” for solutions. The arc of technology certainly holds out some hope that the men and women in white coats are working day and night, feverishly examining new ways to feed the burgeoning populace, shield the earth from the glare of an increasingly angry sun, cleanse the air and waters of the accumulated pollution of the last couple of centuries of industrial exploitation of resources, and so on. Until you discover that most of the work is dedicated to sustaining the interests and incomes of the very corporate powers-that-be who, after all, finance the research. Including the government and its profiteering complex, no longer limited to the military-industrial bugaboo of Eisenhower's farewell address.The so-called “soft sciences,” including such disciplines as sociology and psychology, also seem to offer some corrective, but only palliative, options. More counseling, more mental health assistance, more concern and care. To be layered on top of existing teacher-student-parent, employer-worker-industry, doctor-patient-treatment, and husband-wife-children triangles — to name a few — that are apparently failing to produce intended outcomes, instead resulting in acts of blaming, revenge and violence.As Pogo the Possum famously declared, “We have met the enemy and he is us.” As a young person I was a big Walt Kelly fan, as well as being influenced as a child-artist by Walt Disney's prodigious output. Mad Magazine was a big one as well, later on. These were the social media of my formative years, mainly print, the movies, and the infancy of television. One of the issues that separates generations, making intergenerational collaboration even more difficult, is this cultural disconnect. The images and influences that fill in the background of the passing pageantry of life are also evolving, more rapidly than we are as biological beings. Cultural evolution more readily explains the domination of the human species over its fellow sentient beings, than any increase in fundamental intelligence. We are becoming more and more of a burden on the environment, but are not getting any smarter.Master Dogen is said to have commented that in Zen, we are about the business of developing true intelligence. This implies that there must be a kind of intelligence that is false. One modern meaning of intelligence, in military and international spheres, is data-gathering. That this kind of intelligence can be false is all-too-painfully obvious in miscalculations and errors that have led governments and their military dogs of war into misadventures around the globe, with America as the poster boy, until Russia, under the benighted guidance of their current potentate, Vladimir Putin, invaded Ukraine. Again. But the kind of intelligence Dogen was pointing to was personal. Your intelligence or mine.Intelligence and sentience, or consciousness, cannot be separated, whatever you may think of the IQ test. In zazen, by unlearning our erroneous views of our own direct experience through the senses, we develop the intelligence side of consciousness, in which perception and conception come more in line with reality as it is, outside our personal preferences. It is this kind of unsentimental, unbiased intelligence that we need to bring to bear on the ever-changing koan of everyday life that we are facing in these challenging times.To be continued.* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.
