Our musical journey continues and opens this year's chapter with the new single "Orka en Amazonia" by Mayanáay, accompanied by a remix of Glenn Shaw. We are proud to welcome these two brilliant producers to our monad circle. Mayanáay is the snail alias of Sam Fearon, náay means "DREAM" in the Mayan Kʼicheʼ language. Sam was born in the Mesoamerican Maya region, surrounded by a variety of landscapes, sounds and instruments. His productions are a combination of deeply pulsating drums, progressive rhythms, and hypnotic layers; he does not adhere to a specific genre, but navigates through a slower or faster tempo, aiming to evoke a náay state of mind. Glenn has created a vivid interpretation of the Orginal to perfection, giving it a dirty twist with heavy basslines and freaky, driving synths. Have a great trip !

What was the worst year to be alive on planet Earth?   We make the case for 536 AD, which set off a cascade of catastrophes that is almost too horrible to imagine. A supervolcano. The disappearance of shadows. A failure of bread. Plague rats. Using evidence painstakingly gathered around the world - from Mongolian tree rings to Greenlandic ice cores to Mayan artifacts - we paint a portrait of what scientists and historians think went wrong, and what we think it felt like to be there in real time. (Spoiler: not so hot.)  We hear a hymn for the dead from the ancient kingdom of Axum, the closest we can get to the sound of grief from a millennium and a half ago. The horrors of 536 make us wonder about the parallels and perpendiculars with our own time: does it make you feel any better knowing that your suffering is part of a global crisis? Or does it just make things worse?"Thanks to reporter Ann Gibbons whose Science article "Eruption made 536 ‘the worst year to be alive" got us interested in the first place. In case you want to learn more about 536, here are some other sources: Timothy P.

12.30.21 - Day 4/13 of the White Mirror Wavespell - Rhythmic Moon 18 It's Gregorian New Year's season, and you can decide how to integrate the artificial but consensual idea of a year ending and beginning right now. For some of us diehard 13 Moon proponents, it's impossible to forget all the work we've already done introducing the Mayan new year into our synapses long ago late last summer. The Rhythmic Moon we're now in speaks to having hit a rhythm with our Yellow Electric Seed year, starting to see its momentum, cyclical themes and repetitive motions, and it doesn't make any sense that something is stopping and beginning again just as we feel the systemic flow of our Natural Time year arc. However, it's the beginning of a new Gregorian year, and that year will be called Blue Rhythmic Night, the sixth in a wavespell of its own that started 1.1.17. Think of the effervescence of a Gregorian year spent organizing oneself to dream. It could be compelling.

The boys strap in for the final time of 2021 - this week's episode is dedicated to reviewing the year that was. We seemingly end this year on a sombre note, with the grim spectre of Covid towering over us. Kush is absent this week as he is quarantining, meanwhile the other boys record in a socially distanced manner - mask and all. We begin with Rohit's holiday shenanigans as the man prepares to go to the most unvaxxed place in Australia. The boys then briefly run through their years and give us a rating for 2021. Our game this week is the always trusty “News or Not.” A quick recap, Sen reads out some outrageous headlines from 2021 and Ro and Migs have to decide if these are real news stories or indeed fake news. Finally, we end the episode with a fan favourite segment “Compare and Contrast” where we debate and rank various things, this week in keeping up with our theme, we rank the months of 2021. We go back through the archives, memory banks and camera roll and rank the months of the year on a scale of the Gregorian calendar to the Mayan calendar. Also this week: Covid conundrums, Byron Bay, Florida Man, woke coke and Freedom Day. Segments this week: The Logue: Tired of reaching around each other (at least on the podcast), the boys have instead decided to reach around the week's news stories, events and viral trends. News or Not: With fake news as rampant as ever, the boys delve into some headlines and determine what is real and what is not the news. Compare and Contrast: Named in honour of our favourite HSC English essay questions, the boys debate the most pressing issues in society and attempt to agree on a ranked tier list, which may end up in broken friendships and definitely will end up being wrong.

12.23.21 - Day 10/13 of the Red Serpent Wavespell - Rhythmic Moon 11 It's John Lennon's Mayan birthday. I think a lot in the Red Serpent time about survival, the base instinct of a reptilian existence that drives life, and makes fixated self-preservation possible - not distracted by overly imaginative thoughts. It's a thrill to feel safe in the Red Serpent surround, 'I will survive.' John Lennon, born in the Red Serpent wavespell, did not. He was murdered, and we were all caught off guard as he was in that moment. Each day of a wavespell - each person born on such a day - serves the tribe's intent. White Planetary Wizard is the peak of the Red Serpent wavespell, the highest point of its power of survival, but it's also when the journey of ends. When the maximum energetic force is beat back by something much larger and impregnable. So John Lennon survived the loss of parents, the trauma of childhood, the demands of fame, the disintegration of his band of brothers, the reflexive judgment of the fanbase, all of the cultural fixation...and then he succumbed early to death. His planetary influence as a wizard-shaman lives on.

What you'll learn in this episode: The history of JCK and the JCK Show How Victoria identifies trends to highlight in JCK Why the line between women's jewelry and men's jewelry has blurred, especially among younger consumers How travel influences jewelry design The most exciting new designers Victoria has her eye on About Victoria Gomelsky Victoria Gomelsky is editor-in-chief of JCK, a New York City-based jewelry trade publication founded in 1869. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Robb Report, AFAR, WSJ Magazine, the Hollywood Reporter, Escape, The Sun and Waking Up American: Coming of Age Biculturally, an anthology published by Seal Press. She graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA with a BA in political science in 1995 and earned her MFA in nonfiction writing from Columbia University in 2002. She specializes in jewelry and watch writing but her greatest love has always been travel — 60 countries and counting. Victoria was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and emigrated to the United States in 1978 with her parents and twin sister, Julia. She divides her time between New York City and Los Angeles. Additional Resources:  Victoria's Website Victoria's Instagram Photos: Victoria Gomelsky watches: Transcript: Victoria Gomelsky, editor in chief of esteemed jewelry trade publication JCK, was bitten by the travel bug during her first-ever trip—when she and her family immigrated to the U.S. from the Soviet Union in the late 1970s. Since then, she's visited more than 60 countries, often traveling to visit jewelry shows and report on jewelry trends. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about how her career in jewelry started with a mysterious online job posting; why Gen Z is changing the way we categorize jewelry; and where to find her favorite jewelry destinations. Read the episode transcript here.   Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is a two-part Jewelry Journey Podcast. Keep your eyes open for part two, which we'll be posting later this week. Today, our guest is Victoria Gomelsky, editor-in-chief of the well-known industry publication JCK. Victoria is an accomplished writer. She's written about jewelry for the New York Times as well as an extensive list of respected publications. She also covers another of her passions, which is travel. She's had a quite a jewelry journey, as she was born in Russia and has been to more than 60 countries and counting. We'll hear all about her jewelry journey today. Victoria, welcome back to the program. Sharon: I have to ask you, why Las Vegas in July or in June? It's hot then.    Victoria: You know it's hot. It was this year that it was actually pushed back to August, which was so much hotter. It was hard to even fathom. I think the timing is such because it works well for the majors, the majors being the signets and the chain jewelers who really need to plan out their holiday buying much earlier than your average small boutique owner. A lot of it has to do with the schedule that makes sense for the industry. It's Vegas because it's hard to imagine another city that is appropriate for a giant tradeshow—   Sharon: That's true.   Victoria: That's easy to get, that has ample hotel room space. There are certainly smaller conferences that have been around the country. The American Gem Society has its annual conclave in a different city every year, but it's much, much smaller. It's convenience and ease of access, and I've gotten used to it. I don't love Vegas, but it does feel like my year is incomplete without my week at JCK. I've been going since 2000, so it's hard to imagine a year without it.   Sharon: How far in advance are you planning your publications? Are you thinking about the December issue in August?   Victoria: Well, if we had a December issue, yes.    Sharon: If it was an issue online?   Victoria: Online we can pull together pretty quickly. If it's a big feature, we like to plan it at least a month in advance, but so much of online is responding to what's happening in the world. Especially with the pandemic, it was really hard to plan because, as did everybody, we hit those walls where we thought, “This may not be relevant in a month.” Things were so changeable and volatile.    Online has a much different pace, but in terms of the print issue, we'll start planning the issue that heads out the door on the eve of JCK Vegas 2022. It'll probably go out in late May, and we'll probably start thinking about that in January in terms of big picture ideas. Just this morning, I was asked to give a sketch of content for a section on colored stones. It's hard to do that really early. You want to be timely. You want to be thoughtful about what people are thinking and what's happening the world.    Especially if an issue's coming out in the spring, I feel like after the holiday makes the most sense, because the holiday in the jewelry industry, as you can imagine or know, is everything. It's still the bulk of sales. The bulk of news comes out of this fourth quarter. To plan content without knowing how the holidays have gone is going to miss the mark, unless you're planning something general and vague. So, I like to wait until early January to start thinking about what makes sense and what people are talking about, what the news is.   Sharon: In terms of the holidays, since they're around the corner right now, you must have some features that are holiday-related that you think about early on, maybe in September or August.   Victoria: We do. If it's not about the holiday, it's about what people might start thinking about for the holiday. We do a lot of trend coverage on JCK, a lot of specific trend coverage, whether it be men's jewelry or something else. I'm actually working on a series of special report newsletters that go out every Monday in November all around the men's jewelry theme. We've covered colored stones, pearls, bridal. We tackle everything with a slight angle towards the holiday, questions like: Is this worth stocking? What are the trends? What kinds of things might retailers keep in mind as they prepare?    JCK is very much a style and trend publication, but it's also a business publication for people who happen to own jewelry businesses. We do a lot of marketing coverage, technology, social media apps that people need to know that might make them more efficient in their business. You could take jewelry out of a lot of what we cover and put in another field, whether it's fashion or home good or anything, and it might apply in terms of the strategies people might want to use to target customers, what they need to know. We try to cover it from all facets. It's always been a publication for businessowners in the jewelry space, so there's a lot of general business information we try to make sure our readers are aware of.   Sharon: If you're looking at trends, I'm thinking about the non-jewelry person that would go to Vogue or Harper's Bazaar or something like that—I'm dating myself, I realize—who can go online. I still think in terms of putting it online, like everybody else. Tell us about men's jewelry. Are men wearing more jewelry than before?   Victoria: Yes, they really are. It's funny, because I've been 20 years covering jewelry, and every four or five years, I'm either asked to or I initiate a story about the men's jewelry renaissance. There's always been something to say over the last 20 years. I do a lot of freelance writing for the New York Times. I did a piece for the Times about seven years ago, and there was a lot to say. There were a lot of jewelers introducing new men's collections and different takes on the subject, but no time has felt quite as relevant to that topic as now.    I think if you look to some of the most famous pop artists we see today, whether it's Harry Styles or Justin Bieber, the Jonas Brothers, Lil Nas X, any of these pop culture personalities, they are draped in jewelry, and not just any jewelry. A lot of them are draped in pearls, which for many of us are the most feminine gem around. There is this great, very interesting conversation about genderless or gender agnosticism in jewelry. Should we even define jewelry as a men's piece versus a woman's piece? Why not just make jewelry? Maybe it's a little more masculine/minimalist. Maybe it's a little more feminine/elaborate or diamond-set, but let it appeal to who it appeals to. Why do you need to tell people who it's for? It's a conversation.    I also write about watches quite a bit, and it's a conversation the watch world is grappling with, more so this year than any other year. Do we need to tell women that this is a “lady's watch”? Why don't we just market a watch, whether it, again, has feminine design codes or masculine design codes. Let whoever is interested in it buy it. We don't need to tell people what categories they are allowed to be interested in. It's been a very interesting conversation. I think fashion is embroiled in this conversation too, and it's been exciting to see.    When I talk about men's jewelry, I think what happens is that much of the industry still needs these categories because at retail, for example, a retailer might get a bunch of jewelry and they need to know how to merchandise or how to display it. For those kinds of problems, you still want to say, “O.K., well, this is my men's showcase,” but I think slowly things are changing. I don't know if in five years or 10 years, we'll even need those topics anymore. I think we'll just have a showcase of jewels. Again, they might be more minimalist or plainer, and they might appeal to men or women or people who consider themselves nonbinary.    Sharon: That's interesting, especially with watches, because when women wear men's watches, that's a fashion statement today.   Victoria: Very much so. I did a huge piece on female collectors for the Times in early 2020, and all of them wore men's pieces and felt a little grieved that they were being told what a woman's watch is. A woman's watch is a watch worn by a woman; that's it. I think the same might be true for jewelry. A men's jewel is a jewel worn by a man and so on. It's been an interesting thing to see evolve, and certainly there's a lot of momentum behind it. I think we'll slowly see these categories dissolve.   Sharon: There's a lot. I haven't seen men wearing brooches. Some of what you're talking about, to me, still has a way to go.   Victoria: A lot of it is being driven by Gen Z, Millennials, younger generations who look to their style icons like Harry Styles, as I mentioned. They're draped in a feather boa and necklaces. As that generation comes up they're going to age, and they're eventually going to be 30 or 40 and they'll be quite comfortable with jewelry because, 20 years later, they've been wearing it all these decades. But yeah, today, if you ask your average guy if he's going to wear a pearl necklace, I'm sure the answer's no, but I think these things do change. They change quicker than we expect them to. It's so much of what we see and what seems O.K. A lot of men might want to do that or might think they would look good in a pearl necklace.    I keep coming back to it because pearls are, again, the most feminine of gems, at least in terms of the lore we talk about, how we talk about them. Yet you see them on people like the Jonas Brothers or, for that matter, big, beautiful, iced-out Cuban chains. You see those on rappers or on hip hop stars. There is this communication out in the world where if you're just a regular guy and you're cruising through your Instagram and seeing these images, it all says to you, “This is O.K. This is right. Go for it if you're feeling it.” I think there is a lot more leeway in today's society to express yourself the way you want to. I think it's wonderful. It's quite exciting to see those barriers break down and have these conversations. It's been cool to write about.   Sharon: It would be interesting to have this conversation in 20 years. You reminded me of a conversation I had recently with an antique jewelry dealer about cufflinks. I said to her, “Cufflinks? Who wears cufflinks? I'm in Los Angeles.” Well, you're in Los Angeles too. Even the most staid businessperson, you don't see him with a cufflink, ever. I don't know.   Victoria: Maybe about a month ago, my boyfriend and I were invited to the opening of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, which just opened in September in the heart of Miracle, right next to LACMA. It was a big gala affair sponsored by Rolex, which is a huge supporter of the Academy and the Oscars and now the museum. It was wonderful; it was like a little Oscars event, except it wasn't televised. It was black-tie glamor. Hollywood glamor was the theme, so my boyfriend rented a tux; he doesn't own one, of course, because we're in L.A. and it's a pandemic. Who needs a tux? But he got a tux, and I was gutted that I didn't have cufflinks for him or that he didn't have his own. He rented some, I think; he had a few shirt studs he was able to get from the rental place, but it was the first time. I thought, “Oh my God, cufflinks!” and we had a wonderful time. It was really exciting to be back in the world in such a fabulous way. It really felt special.   Sharon: I didn't realize it had opened. I was at LACMA, the L.A. County Museum of Art, this weekend and there was a big crowd around the Academy Museum, but I didn't realize it had opened. My antique jewelry dealer friend was also saying that she has collectors who collect antique cufflinks. I thought, “That's interesting.” I didn't know that was a collector's item in some circles, I guess.   Victoria: Yeah, when I think about it, there are a lot of great ones in London. If you ever go through Mayfair or Old Bond Street and you find those antique dealers there—there's Deakin & Francis, an old U.K. firm that specializes in cufflinks. I've never owned any, but now that we're talking about it, I feel I need to buy my partner some.   Sharon: I stopped buying my husband them 20 years ago when they just sat on his dresser not worn. I said, “O.K., I tried.” You're a traveler. You've been to how many countries?   Victoria: I lose track. It depends a little on how you count countries. I think I've counted Macao separately from China, even though it's a special administrative region of Hong Kong. Somewhere around 60. It might be about 61 or 62. A lot of countries I've been to—I mean, I've been to Switzerland at least 20 times, Brazil five times, Russia four times. I keep going back to places even though it's always very exciting to take another country off my list. As I mentioned earlier, I was a backpacker after college. My first trip was to Central America with some girlfriends with backpacks on. We took off for three months. We went to Costa Rica and Panama and Venezuela, and I ended up in the Caribbean for a couple of weeks.    I had already started a little bit of traveling. Initially, we came from Russia as a kid. I think when we left Russia in late 1978 as part of the exodus of Soviet Jews from the Soviet Union, we were allowed to seek asylum in the States. We took this journey via Vienna and then Rome and ended up in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, of all places, because that's where we had an invitation. We had to have a formal invitation because we were political refugees.    I think very early on, even though it was never articulated to me—it was something I felt in my bones—I thought that travel was a way to lead a better life. It was a road to a better life, as it was for us. Early on that knowledge imprinted on me, on my soul. In high school, I started saving money to go to an exchange program in Spain. That was my first real trip outside—I'd gone to Mexico with my family, but I had never traveled outside of that. So, I had the bug. After college, I was always interested in slightly more offbeat places.    One of my favorite places in the whole world—and I dream about going back all time—is India. I love places that still feel like they're not discovered. Clearly, India's very discovered, but it's not as easy to travel there as it might be to go to Europe. I love Europe and Paris and London as much as the next person, but there's always something that feels a little easy in those spots. I love Southeast Asia. I went to Vietnam in the 90s a couple of times. I loved it. I love Malaysia. I love the food there. I love the smells and the culture. I love things that feel different. India couldn't be more different than our lives. A lot of the same people go between the two, between L.A. and India, for example, and you'll find a lot of creature comforts in places like Mumbai. The culture and the heritage and the history, the way of life and the way people look at life is so, so different, and I'm really drawn to that. I like going places that test me a little bit.   Sharon: How do your jewelry and travel intersect? I'm sure you're traveling to the shows like Basle. India must be a great place for jewels. I don't know about the shows there.   Victoria: My first trip to India was for a show. There's a famous show—famous, I guess, depending on the circles you move in—in Mumbai called the India International Jewelry Show. That was my first reason to get to India in 2004. I ended up going back to do some reports on the diamond trade there. Mumbai is a real hub of diamonds, so I was going back to do research and then Jaipur in the north. Rajasthan is famous for its colored-stone industry. There are tons of colored-stone dealers and cutters and jewelers there, including the very famous Gem Palace, which I visited a couple of times.   My most recent trip to India was in 2017 to Jaipur to attend a conference on colored stones. It happened to intersect with a fair I had always wanted to go to called the Pushkar Camel Fair. Nothing to do with jewelry, although of course you see lots of jewelry in India. Jewelry's a ubiquitous thing there. When I went to this conference in Jaipur, my partner ended up meeting me. We spent a few days in Jaipur together, went down to Udaipur, which is a wonderful town in the south of Rajasthan, just stunning in terms of its history and heritage and hotels and palaces. Then we finished off in Pushkar, also in Rajasthan, at this camel fair. My entrée was for jewelry, but I try to explore as much as I can around it.    India's just remarkable. I'm very pleased that jewelry has such a natural and obvious connection to India because anytime I can have a work trip, take me there. Then if I can add on to it, I do. My son is only three—he's not even three; he's three in November, but I'm thinking, “How old does he have to be to go to India? What is too young to take a young, little guy to India?” Maybe when he's seven, hopefully.    Sharon: That's an interesting question. It could be three. There are people who are 33 who won't go because they're too afraid. It's on my list, but you're so adventurous.   Victoria: I wouldn't have pegged myself as the adventurous sort, at least not in high school. I was very type A. I was student body president. I was a cheerleader. I was very on track at least to go to college and who knows what after that, but I never really thought of myself as a risktaker and an adventure seeker. After spending time in Southeast Asia—I went to backpack there in the 90s, through Vietnam and Cambodia and Malaysia and Singapore—it just settled in my bones. I wanted more and more and more. Those places feel adventurous, but once you get there, they're not as challenging—well, they are challenging in that there's a lot of poverty; the heat is oppressive; it's hard sometimes to figure out your way around if the signage isn't clear and you don't speak the language, but I genuinely feel like the world is full of very good people. Maybe a few bad apples in there, but most people are very kind. So, it's easier than it seems.   Sharon: Do you think if somebody is a jewelry designer or looking at the field or profession, that travel would inform what they do?   Victoria: Oh, 100 percent yes. There are some jewelers who very much look to other cultures or travel. I think of Lydia Courteille, who's a Parisian jeweler who does insanely elaborate, beautiful gem-set pieces usually after a trip somewhere. She's done pieces based on the Mayan heritage. I believe she traveled to Guatemala. She's done pieces based on myths from Russia and India, and a lot of her collections really are inspired by travel she's taken.    There's another jeweler who's part Mexican, part French, named Colette. She has incredible jewels, a lot of them takes on various places she's visited. I think if I were a jeweler, I would certainly use travel as a jumping-off point to create a collection. I can't think of anything more evocative than a jewel that reminds you of a place you've been or the color of the ocean. A lot of people go to Greece and create a beautiful blue jewel that reminds them of the Aegean. Why not?    Sharon: I'm thinking of Thierry Vendome, where he goes and finds rusted pieces on his travels and then he'll come back and incorporate them. One piece had a grenade—   Victoria: An exploded grenade.   Sharon: An exploded grenade, yeah. Tell us who we should keep our eyes on, the top three you think of we should keep our eyes on.   Victoria: I just wrote about a jeweler that I only saw in person recently in Las Vegas at the Couture show, but I had Zoomed with them. They are Mumbai-based. It's a company called Studio Renn. It's a husband and wife named Rahul and Roshni Jhaveri, and they create jewelry for art lovers that really does live at the intersection between art and jewelry, philosophy, design. Sometimes you have to talk to them to hear the inspiration, but for example, one of them—they had stumbled across an object on a walk around Lake Tansa, which is a lake on the outskirts of Mumbai. There was this conversation they had about what it means to give something attention. Does that put value on the piece? And for them, it was this exploration of the meaning of value. They took this piece that was an organic object. They didn't tell me what it was. They cast it. They 3D scanned the whole thing and then encased it in precious metal, put rubies inside it in a way that you could only see them if you shone a light on the piece. There was this written source of very layered, complicated but also beautiful jewelry. They're just very interesting. They're really thoughtful.   Sharon: How do you spell Renn?   Victoria: R-e-n-n.   Sharon: I have to say it's the second time this week that somebody has mentioned them as somebody to keep your eye on.   Victoria: Yeah, I was thrilled to speak to them, and I ended up doing a piece for the New York Times on them. An Up Next Profile is what the column is called, because even though they've been around for a few years and they're not brand new, they're obviously new to people in the States. They are exploring this market. They worked a tour for the first time. They're really lovely and interesting and do beautiful work.    Another jeweler that's gotten a ton of attention—I know her pretty well personally. She is a client of a very good friend of mine. Her name is Lauren Harwell Godfrey, and her collection is called Harwell Godfrey. She's gotten a ton of attention over the last year. In fact, I just saw that she was nominated for a GEM Award, which is like the Oscars of the jewelry industry. The ceremony takes place in January in New York. She was nominated in the design category. Really fantastic use of color, lots of interesting motifs that feel very signature to her, lots of geometric work. We ended up commissioning a piece for my mom for her 75th birthday that my dad gifted to her this last summer. it wasn't a super bespoke piece, but there were bespoke elements to it. It was by Harwell Godfrey. She's a really lovely woman, super-talented designer based in Marin in Northern California.   I'll name one more. He's a really interesting guy. He does a ton of work with AI, artificial intelligence, in a way that scares a lot of people that are used to jewelry as this handmade, soulful object. His point is that there's no less soul in it, even though a computer helped to generate an algorithm that created a pattern that he inputs into this machine. His name is Nick Koss. His company is called Volund Jewelry. He's based in Canada and has a very interesting background that I cannot even attempt to encapsulate because it's rich and complicated, but he does really interesting jewelry. A lot of it is using 3D modelling software, AI, but in a thoughtful way. Again, there is lots of meaning baked into the way he sees things. He could talk about it very intelligently. He does custom work. You can go down a real rabbit hole with him. Check him out on Instagram. It's V-o-l-u-n-d.   I have a soft spot for one jeweler because I wrote a whole book on them that was published by Assouline probably six or seven years ago. It's a company called Lotus Arts de Vivre. They're based in Bangkok. They've been around since the early 80s, I want to say. It's a real family business. The patriarch is originally from Germany. He moved to Bangkok in the 60s and fell in love with a woman who had been born in Thailand but was the product of many years of intermarriage. Her grandfather was a Scottish captain who fell in love with a tribeswoman from north Thailand. Her other grandfather was an Englishman who married a woman from Malaysia. So, she was the distillation of generations of inner marriage between European and Asian backgrounds. They have this huge compound in Bangkok, and they have two sons that now help run the business.    They do extraordinary objects in jewelry. They started out as jewelers, but they do everything from home goods to accessories for people's cars. They use a lot of natural materials in addition to the finest gemstones. They use Golconda diamonds or emeralds from the Panjshir Valley in Afghanistan combined with snakeskin and buffalo horn and different woods. They're huge on different exotic woods from across southeast Asia. They find the finest craftspeople across Asia, whether it's lacquer artists from China or Japan to carvers from Indonesia. They will employ those crafts in their work, and it's just stunning.    They used to be with Bergdorf Goodman for many, many years. They are still available in the States. In fact, they won at the recent Couture show for some of their work. So, they're still here and they're everywhere. They have boutiques in different hotels, especially in Asia, like the Peninsula in Hong Kong or Raffles in Singapore. They have a presence, but they're not as well known, I would say, in the States.   Sharon: I'll check them out, especially if you wrote a whole book about them.    Victoria: The family is beyond interesting. It's the von Bueren family. He's a raconteur, somebody who you could listen to for hours. He's very, very interesting and has seen a lot, and their clients are very interesting. They appeal to a lot of high-society people across Asia, so they have these events. They have a space, a showroom, at their factory in Bangkok right on the river, and they host these soirées that are just magnificent.   Sharon: Wow! I'm sure you know all the ins and outs. You can go down a long list of jewelers and manufacturers. You could tell me about all of them. Victoria, thank you so much for being here today. This is so interesting. I'm sure our audience will enjoy hearing what you have to say about JCK since it is such a stalwart. Thank you very much.   Victoria: Thank you, Sharon. This is lovely. Thank you for giving me such an opportunity to talk about myself.   Sharon: So glad to have you.   We will have images posted on the website.

Her most recent works are Digging The Dirt, Digging Up Milton (brilliantly imagined from minimal primary information, and set in London's St Giles, Cripplegate in the heart of the Barbican, and Tragedy Since 9/11. Jennifer splits her time between writing in London and fulfilling her role as Director of Studies in English at Peterhouse, University of Cambridge. Her doctorate studies were in Romantic Hellenism and she has a particular love of the writings of Shelley, Byron and Keats - all of whom have led her on many a travel adventure following in their footsteps – and in her words, “poets who thought poetry could change the world”. Jennifer was born in London but her formative years were spent in Edinburgh where her love of walking in Scotland was first kindled and, as she admits in our podcast chat, “I find my mood lifting just being on the summit of anything.” Alongside her husband, photo-journalist Robert Wallis, Jennifer visited and interviewed various members of the indigenous tribes in the state of Jharkhand in northeast India culminating in an exhibition at SOAS entitled A Disappearing World showcasing the destruction of the landscape and lives of these tribal groups by coal mining and industrial development. While carrying out primary research for her book Digging The Dirt, Jennifer was fortunate enough to be taken to a newly discovered archaeological site in Belize, considered to be one of the entrances in to the Mayan Underworld.

12.2.21 - Day 2/13 of the Yellow Human Wavespell - Overtone Moon 18 Yellow Human is upon us - we get to see our species from the outside while being inside its Mayan designation. I think, if we follow this calendar, we are liberated from being human most of the time. We instead get to be animals and celestial bodies and weather fronts. We get to be specified roles in human culture that are rarified: the warrior, the shaman, the priest. But then we come home to our karmic embodiment of the human being, homo sapien, for 1/20th of the Tzolkin time. And after shapeshifting into other elements, other animals, we can suddenly assess what is special and different about our own species. One thing, we're certainly smart, learned, honed in our ability to make real what our minds actively imagine. On the other hand, we can't fly, can't orbit the cosmos, can't explode fire from water particles, can't even shimmy up trees and swing from their branches. So the Yellow Human time is full of capability and accomplishment, but the concrete kind. Celebrate your know-how, your life experience that has taught you lessons, your wisdom from so much vast brain activity. And own the karma of our limitation as a species: that we are not particularly cosmic, not that important in the grandest scale, not invincible. We know so much because of trial and e

Celebrating stories of love in beautiful locations sounds like a dream job, and it is for Karen Bussen, the exclusive designer for Weddings by Palladium. Bussen joined Say Yes to Travel host Sarah Dandashy to talk about her experience and what's trending for destination weddings in 2022.Bussen's roots are in the hospitality industry, and that's where her journey to wedding planner extraordinaire began. “I was working at a restaurant in New York City, and a couple loved the floral arrangement I did and asked to help with their wedding. From here, I was hooked.”Bussen learned on the job, making early morning trips to the city's floral market. Over time, she did more than just design, helping couples plan their special day. She then joined the Palladium Group. “We had the same commitment to quality and service, and it was an opportunity to deliver an experience to couples across the world,” she said.Now, she helps brides and grooms create their dream wedding days at Palladium resorts in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica.“Each resort has its own personality. The Riviera Maya is lush and natural. In Jamaica, the backdrop is the turquoise waters. The essence of the place is part of every celebration,” Bussen shared.In talking trends for 2022, Bussen mentioned that since many couples had postponed their nuptials, they're going all out. “They are adding on events and experiences like welcome parties at the beach or farewell brunches.”Another trend Bussen noted is couples wanting to incorporate the culture of the location into their festivities. “They want to integrate the flavors of the place in authentic ways. At Riviera Maya, there's a shaman experience where they issue a blessing, which ties back to Mayan culture.”

When today's guest, Adam Hall's life fell apart he really began to look for answers beyond the success, money and prestige that his ego craved. The initial phase of his transformation began by exploring spiritual teachings under the tutelage of shamanic sage Alberto Villoldo and the conscious evolutionary leader Barbara Marx Hubbard. He became a deep student of A Course of Miracles and the ancient Mayan culture. In a deep meditation, still raw with rage, loss and self-recrimination, he met MEN; an ascended master, who Adam named for the Mayanword “eagle,” associated with the concept of “the wise one.” This mysterious hooded figure called for him to embark on an 81-day journey from Santa Barbara, California to Peru that would reveal to him the path out of his pain and toward the light of the Divine Genius. Over the course of the next weeks, each day MEN would impart more of the Thirteen Universal Wisdom Teachings, each which had a profound impact on Adam, allowing him to unpack and unlearn the layers of false pretenses which previously ruled his mind and veiled the truth of his heart. Today, through his book Divine Genius: The Unlearning Curve, coaching and speaking, Adam helps people speed up the unlearning curve, to access their Divine Mind and the unlimited wisdom, guidance and knowledge. Adam has dedicated himself to fostering Conscious Evolution, business and culture over the past two decades. Through his books — Divine Genius: The Unlearning Curve and the first book in his autobiographical trilogy The EarthKeeper, Undeveloping the Future-- his 40 keynotes and the more than 90 radio and television show interviews, Adam continues to seek and find ways to elevate consciousness and create optimal inner wellness.

  Preserved From the Beast (22) (Audio) David Eells - 11/28/21 Jesus is Coming; Hop Into the Boat! Adriana Santoro - 9/24/21 (David's notes in red)   I dreamed I was with my mom by a wharf and we were waiting for a boat to dock. I was freaking out because I knew that it was the 'end of the world'.  (Adriana's mom represents the original Church and the original gospel which we've heard from the beginning. The boat represents the Psalm 91 refuge in Christ; our Secret Place of the Most High; our Ark of safety. The ‘end of the world' is the end of this age when the 7 year tribulation storm begins. It's the 'end of the world' as we've known it.) It was just us two standing there and I was asking her, "Why mom? Is this really it?" She said, "Yes, He (Jesus) is coming. Just hop into the boat." Shortly after she said this, a medium sized, wooden boat appeared and my mother asked me to hop in. Pro. 18:10 The name of Jehovah is a strong tower; The righteous runneth into it, and is safe. We walked into the second deck and I can only remember looking out of this little port-hole window which was above the water. (The second deck is where the spiritual man abides in heavenly places in Christ. When we abide in Christ, our Strong Tower, by faith, then we walk above the curses of this world and judgment. Psa. 91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, And see the reward of the wicked.) I cannot tell you why we walked onto the second deck but there was not one other person on this boat. (This is because Adriana and her mom represent a corporate body of believers which are many.) I don't even recall seeing a captain, (The Captain is our Heavenly Father who is invisible to us, but He is Sovereign and in complete control of the Ark and the storm.)  All I remember at that point was being in fear. Then I woke up. (I hadn't understood God properly back when I had this dream but I feel differently now that I understand His promises for His elect better.)     Taking Back the Media / Shaking Storm of the Serpent Coming William Steenland - 11/20/21  (David's notes in red)   I had a short dream that the entire internet was completely censored from all non-DS controlled alternative media news sources.  (The communist DS has done this to  conservatives. Now the military is planning to run the Starlink Satelite System and will have the ONLY news soon.  They will cut out the DS MSM just like they did to us. The military is taking out the DS satellites.  They say it will be safe on the new internet which is coming up now as we speak.  No Dark Net or Porno, etc.. We need to pray against what Bill saw and for the Alliance's success.) In the second dream, I was just waking up and I spoke in my sleep saying, “Massive hurricane; East Coast”. I woke up immediately and thought how silly it was to dream of a hurricane warning because it's so late in the year. But, maybe the hurricane is symbolic.  (The Etymology of the word ‘Hurricane' means 'shaking of the serpent', I believe.)  (According to Act for Libraries : There are two possible origins of the word “hurricane.” According to one source, the word “Hurricane” is derived from the Spanish word “huracn”, the origin of which is the Carib term for “God of Evil”. Other sources, however, postulate that the word is derived from the name of the Mayan storm god, “Hurakan.” According to the Popol Vuh, which recounts the Mayan Creation story, Huracan (from the Mayan word Jun Raqan) is the ancient Mayan weather god of wind, storm, and fire. Hurakan is “the one-legged”, and one of three creator deities, collectively called “The Heart of Heaven,” that participates in three attempts at creating humanity first from mud, and then wood. The final and successful creation resulted in the creation of mankind from maize. Their Creation story also reveals that Hurakan caused the Great Flood after the first humans angered the gods. According to the myth, he lived in the windy mists above the floodwaters and repeatedly called forth the earth until land came up from beneath the seas. His “one legged” appearance refers to one of his legs having been transformed into a snake. His appearance features a snout-like nose, resembles that of the Aztec god Tezcatlipoca. Hurakan can also be spelled Hurrican, Huracan, & Harakan.)     The Fast Approaching Storm; Grid Down Causes a Great Falling Away Marie Kelton - 12/22/20 (David's notes in red) I had a dream that Vanessa and I were in an all white classroom like the ones from when I was in college. (The classroom represents that we have been in training for the times to come.) There was a big virtual map that Vanessa was looking at on the white board because a wind storm was coming. It was showing the wind patterns all over the world. (Well, we know that an economic storm and a plague storm and a political storm from the DS is in play now all over the world.)  Vanessa was trying to figure out what was going to happen in our area which was in the northern part of Africa by Egypt and Israel. (We are spiritual Israel; currently enslaved to Egypt as a type of America and the Babylonish world system.)  Vanessa couldn't figure out how to reverse the progress of the storm. So I reversed the progress of the storm on the map by hitting an undo button  so it would go back to where it would show us what would happen now, instead of in the future, because the progress of the storm on the map was moving too fast. (Representing intercessory prayer that will undo or hinder the progress of the enemies plans against us. ) The present wind movement wasn't that bad on the map now, but it picked up and got worse in our area as time went on. (Trump has said in the past, “The Storm is Upon Us”, but now it is getting worse.) Then David said that the wind storm would cause the power grid to go down and that many in UBM local and larger UBM would be tested with the idea of being lost or reprobated. He said it's because, that's what satan does and that God would use it to see who would fall away. (We have a spiritual power grid of the promises to us in the Word of God as well as a power grid in the natural. Many are already falling away because of these tests of discouragement, doubt and unbelief caused by the MSM disinformation as well as satan's fiery darts of disinformation.) I knew it was because we could no longer get the teachings and broadcasts due to the grid being down and no internet. The ones that were not in local UBM couldn't communicate with the ones that were. I knew that it was a great falling away and not just local but around the world. (There is a planned shutdown by the Alliance that should be relatively short to enable them to better capture DS criminals. We should pray for their success and that this shutdown does not last. Also, people are capable now of copying teachings and audios from the site for the coming days. People could be demoralized by a physical communications disruption and possibly more lock downs when a worse plague is released on the populations of the world by the DS.)   DS Smashes the Phones to Avoid Exposure  Andrew Gelinas - 7/10/21 (David's notes in red) In this dream it was night time. (Representing the spiritual darkness that is covering the earth and will get increasingly darker.) I watched a small news crew approach a leftist DS man on the walkway of his home. The news crew's equipment cases were levitating and following right behind them. (The Alliance is about to take over the media from the DS who have lost all their main satellites.)  As I observed this curiosity of the levitating equipment cases, I thought to myself, “This technology would've been unbelievable for me or anyone else to imagine only a little while ago. Now it's just a normal part of every day life.” (The Star link Satellite network is run by the Trump military and is present with everyone and it is highly technical. It will be linked to smart phones and will follow us by GPS .) Then one of the reporters held up a smart phone to the man and asked, “What do you have to say about this?” They were showing him irrefutable proof about everything he and the DS had been doing in the shadows all along. (Trump and the Alliance have been slowly leaking and dripping out information to the public for about a year now and more and more of the DS evils are being exposed to the masses who are finally waking up and beginning to take a stand against the DS in protests and law suits.) The man leered at the screen, scanning it in irritation for a few seconds. Then he abruptly ripped the phone from the reporter's hand, and angrily hurled it down at the concrete in dramatic fashion as he stormed back into his house and slammed the door. (The DS is furious and desperate that they are losing their witchcraft grip on the people and they are planning a worse attack or plague to be unleashed on the masses in order to regain control and carry out their de-population plans for humanity to completion. Mike Adams has an  interesting podcast on the possibilities of DS distractions in order to avoid the exposure of their evils.) After this, the scene changed and it was now bright and sunny. (Representing the coming of the Man-child at the beginning of the 7 year tribulation period. “Those who sat in darkness have seen a great light.") I was standing next to my Father in his yard. (Representing our Heavenly Father)  He was kneeling down on one knee beside a tree stump. He had placed the wooden butt of a rifle on the center of the stump and was using a hammer and chisel to carve it up into wood chips. (The Father will destroy the stump of Babylon. Dan. 4:23-26 And whereas the king saw a watcher and a holy one coming down from heaven, and saying, Hew down the tree, and destroy it; nevertheless leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field, and let it be wet with the dew of heaven: and let his portion be with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him; 24 this is the interpretation, O king, and it is the decree of the Most High, which is come upon my lord the king: 25 that thou shalt be driven from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and thou shalt be made to eat grass as oxen, and shalt be wet with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over thee; till thou know that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. 26 And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the roots of the tree; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule.) I then held up a piece of wood chip and sniffed it to see if it would work well for smoking meats. Then I woke up. (This represents the wood, hay and stubble that are burnt up in the  fiery trials to purify God's people and cleanse the Church of Babylonish impurities.  Mat. 3:7-12   But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said unto them, Ye offspring of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruit worthy of repentance: 9 and think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.  10 And even now the axe lieth at the root of the trees: every tree therefore that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 11 I indeed baptize you in water unto repentance, but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit and in fire: 12 whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing-floor; and he will gather his wheat into the garner, but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire.   The Beast Devours Communications; Apostasy Reveals Too Much Flesh Claire Pienaar - 6/30/21 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was in a large body of water. (Representing peoples, nations and tongues.)  I needed to lure a polar bear (Representing the Beast)  out of the water. (We bait the Beast in people by being wise as serpents and harmless as doves.) I looked down into the murky water all around me. It was like a lake or dam. Then I realized I was in open water, but there was no polar bear there. He'd already been caught and put into an Olympic sized pool. In the next instant I was in that same pool. (Father is sovereign over the Beast and already has him contained to do His will in the earth among the nations and peoples. We are in the world but not of it.)  It was my job to give the polar bear my phone to chew on. (This represents sacrificing our fleshly communications of the Beast whether it's from our own mouths or our devices.) The bear LOVED phones! (The DS Beast in the waters of mankind loves phones so that they can keep track of everybody and have all intelligence to control everything.) I was now quite fearful as I thought maybe the bear was getting hungry. I swam towards the bear, and my phone flipped out of my hands and I thought “Oh no! How will I find it?” The concern was not for my phone, but that, without it, the bear would want to eat me instead. (The DS beast has no intelligence to control us, rob us, make war against us without their  brain box with us and in losing this they have decided to depopulate us. Through their intelligence they are able to decide who they want to purge from society. On another vein, t he Beast of our flesh will devour us without us sacrificing our fleshly desires upon the altar. The corporate body of the Beast will devour all those who are not sanctified from the world and its ways and fleshly communications. I've often joked about throwing my GPS connected phone onto the back of a passing semi going south.) But then I clasped the phone between my knees and gave it to the bear very quickly. (A new phone is coming out pushed by the Alliance because it is connected to the military's new satellite system. The DS made money off the old phones, but the new phones will free us from them. On another vein, We capture our flesh and its communications by humbling ourselves in prayer and intercession.)  He spoke to me in a Russian or European accent and thanked me. (I believe it's European because the Russians are allies in this war against the DS. T he US military is hunting down the DS elite, they are fleeing the country and many are going underground as you will hear.) I swam all the way back to the entry point of the pool with this bear happily chewing on my phone, swimming behind me like a puppy... Then I woke up. (We need to pray for the success of the new satellite/phone system which in the short run will help us and in the long run it's all going back to the Beast mid-trib.) I asked the Lord for a word by faith at random for this dream and received, Psalm 126:1 with my finger on “the LORD”. (In context 1-2)  When Jehovah brought back those that returned to Zion, We were like unto them that dream.  (Our Cyrus is making it possible with our prayers for us to return to Zion and rebuild.) 2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, And our tongue with singing: Then said they among the nations, Jehovah hath done great things for them. I asked about the polar bear and the iPhone and I received by faith at random, 2 Ch 20:20, 20 And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem: believe in Jehovah your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.  (The instructions that Jehoshaphat received was to send the praisers out first which divided the enemies armies so that they killed each other off and left the Bride Jerusalem alone.)  I also received by faith at random, Micah 3:2 with my finger on “flesh”. (In context, 1-4)  And I said, Hear, I pray you, ye heads of Jacob, and rulers of the house of Israel: is it not for you to know justice? 2 ye who hate the good, and love the evil; who pluck off their skin from off them, and their flesh from off their bones; 3 who also eat the flesh of my people, and flay their skin from off them, and break their bones, and chop them in pieces, as for the pot, and as flesh within the caldron. 4 Then shall they cry unto Jehovah, but he will not answer them; yea, he will hide his face from them at that time, according as they have wrought evil in their doings.”  (The Beast will destroy the apostate leadership except those who repent.) All is vanity, it seems. But those who run after the Lord and confess Him will be protected in the secret place of the Most High.    Large Trees Taken Out By Storm Winnie Osegueda - 8/2/21 (David's notes in red)   Chuc's alarm woke me up at 5 am and I decided to get my verse by faith at random for the morning prayer meeting and I opened to  Deu. 25:19 Therefore it shall be, when Jehovah thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which Jehovah thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget.  (Notice that standing in the Land of Promise brings rest from our enemies.) I went back to sleep and dreamed there was a storm outside and quite a few trees had fallen. Chuc told me that they had to be moved off to the side so that we were able to drive through, and we went to go look. (Trees represent people or corporate bodies of people in the Bible; In this case the evil leadership in the DS Government and the apostate church.  Zec. 11:1-3   Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars. 2 Wail, O fir-tree, for the cedar is fallen, because the goodly ones are destroyed: wail, O ye oaks of Bashan, for the strong forest is come down. 3 A voice of the wailing of the shepherds! for their glory is destroyed: a voice of the roaring of young lions! for the pride of the Jordan is laid waste. I was surprised because I thought they were strong trees that were able to withstand the storm. I don't remember the storm being that bad at all, however, some of the trees were so broken that there were huge pieces of wood laid out on the road, including the large, bottom portion of the trunks where the trees were cut off. They were moved to the sides of the road, so that we would be able to drive through the middle which was narrow. Father is sending the storm to move these ‘trees' out of the way so that God's people can pass through on the narrow path of righteousness again.  Zec. 11: 4-6  Thus said Jehovah my God: Feed the flock of slaughter; 5 whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty; and they that sell them say, Blessed be Jehovah, for I am rich; and their own shepherds pity them not. 6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith Jehovah; but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbor's hand, and into the hand of his king; and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver them.  There were different types of trees with different color leaves that most people might consider to be beautiful. The leaves were very bright and some were even pink. They looked like the trees in a Dr. Seuss book, which made me think of the worldly philosophical "wisdom" that Dr. Seuss books usually contain. (Many people are in love with their beautiful church buildings and the ear tickling doctrines of the apostate church leadership, but Father is weary of them and He is about to cut them off. Zec. 11:7-9  So I fed the flock of slaughter, verily the poor of the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock. 8 And I cut off the three shepherds in one month; for my soul was weary of them, and their soul also loathed me. 9 Then said I, I will not feed you: that which dieth, let it die; and that which is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let them that are left eat every one the flesh of another. This reminds me of Brandy's dream of a remnant of apostate mega-church leaders who will be humbled and return to the true gospel message of the Sons of David in the Davidic Man-child ministries in these end times.) The scene changed, and I was in my home and had a huge baby boy wrapped in a sky-blue colored blanket that I was caring for and sheltering from the storm. He began to cry a bit when I tried to lay him down, so I picked him up to console him. (Winnie represents the first fruits Bride who gives birth to the huge baby boy representing the corporate body of the Man-child in whom Jesus will epiphany or 'shine forth from.' We must not grow weary of carrying the Man-child and be tempted to lay Him down and lose our fruit by grieving His Holy Spirit. Gal. 6:7-10  Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 8 For he that soweth unto his own flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth unto the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 And let us not be weary in well-doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. 10 So then, as we have opportunity, let us work that which is good toward all men, and especially toward them that are of the household of the faith.) Our home was inside a HUGE tree that was not affected by the storm in any way. This tree was hidden amongst all the other trees, so you wouldn't think there was a house inside. We had a door on the right side of the tree where we were able to enter. (The huge tree is our true family tree, all the saints or sanctified ones of God. The righteous enter this house through the Door which is Jesus. When we abide in Christ who is the secret place of the Most High we are hidden from the storms of the enemy and of judgment.) I had other children at the home with me, my nephews Izzy and Junior. They were outside with umbrellas and I ushered them into the house. Izzy was in his undergarments and needed to put more clothes on. (Izzy is a common nickname for Israel meaning, " God contends, or one who struggles with God."  Or also Isaac which means “One who laughs”. I believe Junior represents Judah meaning “Praise”. He is fully clothed with the garments of praise. He is a Junior because He looks like the Father. Izzy represents the Northern 10 tribes of Israel that factioned away from David's kingdom. They are scoffers who laugh and contend with God. Izzy represents a remnant of modern day Christianity who need to put on more clothes or the robes of righteousness. They are under an umbrella because they have not yet received the rain of the Holy Spirit. They will repent in order to come into the true house of God. God has promised to restore them after their chastening.) I woke up with the song "The Lion of Judah," playing in my spirit, specifically on the verse "Who can stop the Lord Almighty?” (Only we can stop the Lord for He has said, "what we bind on earth is bound in heaven". Jesus could not do many mighty works in his own town because of their unbelief.) When I woke up, I shuffled my playlist of scriptures by faith and asked Father for a word for this dream and received, Proverbs 21:2-3 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; But Jehovah weigheth the hearts. 3 To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to Jehovah than sacrifice.  I inquired again of the Lord and opened my concordance by faith at random to, Jer. 22:9  (In context 8-10)  And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall say every man to his neighbor, Wherefore hath Jehovah done thus unto this great city? 9 Then they shall answer, Because they forsook the covenant of Jehovah their God, and worshipped other gods, and served them. 10 Weep ye not for the dead, neither bemoan him; but weep sore for him that goeth away; for he shall return no more, nor see his native country.  (A great falling away has happened and all must repent and cling to scripture to be saved.)   The Factious House Swept Away   Brandy Arney - 4/4/16 (David's notes in red) I was driving downhill on a dirt road in the mountains and I stopped to wait for a following car that was full of friends to catch up.  I looked below and further down the road I saw a group of 9 cars that were stopped in a gully headed towards me. It was 3 rows of 3 cars. (As we will see, these 9 cars represent the factious Esau's who hate their brethren. They make no progress to climb the mountain and live in the gully. Their final storm of judgment is coming and will be swift. In general, the  number 9  is the largest and last digit correlating “finality” and completeness. The number of finality or judgment is committed unto Jesus as “the Son of man” (John 5:27; Acts 17:31). It marks the end and issue of all things pertaining to man and the judgment of man and all his works.  There were 9 judgments of God in Haggai 1:11 are enumerated as follows: “And I called for a drought upon the land, and upon the mountains, and upon the corn, and upon the new wine, and upon the oil, and upon that which the ground bringeth forth, and upon men, and upon cattle, and upon all the labor of the hands.” Further insight into the Number 9 emerges from the 9th commandment: “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.” There were 9 people mentioned in the Bible who were stoned and also 9 instances mentioned about people being blind or blinded.) I looked up to the left and noticed that there was a flow of water headed down towards the cars through the trees. (As we have seen, God will use the plans of the Leftist DS criminals to bring judgment on the apostate factious leaders and their reprobated followers who live in the gully.) I looked back quickly to see if my friends were coming and then looked back to the 9 cars and saw that the back 6 cars were completely washed away and the remaining 3 in the front were threatened by the growing water.  (In our morning prayer meeting for 11-14-21 we received this text by faith at random concerning the faction house being swept away: Luk 6:46-49  And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?  47  Every one that cometh unto me, and heareth my words, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like:  48  he is like a man building a house, who digged and went deep, and laid a foundation upon the rock: and when a flood arose, the stream brake against that house, and could not shake it: because it had been well builded.  49  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that built a house upon the earth without a foundation; against which the stream brake, and straightway it fell in; and the ruin of that house was great.)    I looked at my phone to call emergency services for a rescue but my phone had a black screen and a large white triangle and exclamation mark that told me it was not working. (In the natural, the DS plans to take down the grid for their own evil purposes as part of their “Dark Winter” and we have heard that the Alliance also has plans to take down the communications to disable the DS and to bring online a new internet that is purged of the grossest evil. Either way, the wicked will not be able to be saved from this judgment that has been ordained upon them by God.) I realized that it was too late to help the ones that have been washed away anyway. I looked back to the scene and saw the last three cars were gone as well.  I looked back up the hill where I had come from and saw that there was water going down the opposite side of the hill exactly as it had done further down the road. I knew I didn't have time to even get back into my truck and turn around or I would be taken too.  So, I started to run up the hill to the apex to safety. Then I woke up. (We also received in the morning meeting that same morning Nah 1:6-8  Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his wrath is poured out like fire, and the rocks are broken asunder by him.  7  Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that take refuge in him.  8  But with an over-running flood he will make a full end of her place, and will pursue his enemies into darkness.)    Dead Black Bears Winnie Osegueda - 9/8/21 (David's notes in red) This morning in a quick vision or dream I saw several dead black bears laying on the grass. (These black bears represent our old beastly nature that once ruled over the flesh which is the grass. They are lying on top of the grass representing that these people are overcomers who have crucified the beastly nature which is what the beasts in the world take advantage of. According to the Word, “All flesh is as grass.") They were behind a couple of red lawn chairs. (Representing entering the rest through the blood of Jesus that conquered sin and death 2000 years ago.) I was observing from in front of the lawn chairs. The lawn chairs were facing me and the dead bears were behind them.  Then I woke up. (Once we have entered into the rest by faith in the past-tense promises of God we realize that everything we need for every form of salvation has already been accomplished for us at the cross. The chairs facing Winnie are saying enter into the rest through faith which is where all our provision lies.) I asked the Lord for a chapter after I woke up and I received Ephesians 4:32, however I believe it's the whole chapter because that is what I specifically asked for. After the Wednesday Bible study, I again asked the Lord for a chapter, and again received Ephesians 4, and it reminds me of Vanessa's dream regarding Ephesians 4. (Located in: Obey and Love or be Separated 1 & 2 )   Eph 4:1-32  I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beseech you to walk worthily of the calling wherewith ye were called, 2 with all lowliness and meekness, with long suffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 giving diligence to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as also ye were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all. 7 But unto each one of us was the grace given according to the measure of the gift of Christ. 8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended on high, he led captivity captive, And gave gifts unto men.  9 (Now this, He ascended, what is it but that he also descended into the lower parts of the earth? 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.) 11 And he gave some to be apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 for the perfecting of the saints, unto the work of ministering, unto the building up of the body of Christ: 13 till we all attain unto the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a fullgrown man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 that we may be no longer children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, in craftiness, after the wiles of error; 15 but speaking truth in love, we may grow up in all things into him, who is the head, even Christ; 16 from whom all the body fitly framed and knit together through that which every joint supplieth, according to the working in due measure of each several part, maketh the increase of the body unto the building up of itself in love.  17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye no longer walk as the Gentiles also walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18  being darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardening of their heart; 19  who being past feeling gave themselves up to lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20  But ye did not so learn Christ; 21  if so be that ye heard him, and were taught in him, even as truth is in Jesus: 22  that ye put away, as concerning your former manner of life, the old man, that waxeth corrupt after the lusts of deceit; 23  and that ye be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24  and put on the new man, that after God hath been created in righteousness and holiness of truth. 25 Wherefore, putting away falsehood, speak ye truth each one with his neighbor: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 neither give place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing that is good, that he may have whereof to give to him that hath need. 29 Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for edifying as the need may be, that it may give grace to them that hear. 30 And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, in whom ye were sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and railing, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving each other, even as God also in Christ forgave you.    There is Safety From the Storm in the School of Death to Self Marie Kelton - 7/26/21 (David's notes in red) I dreamed I was in a school walking with three white girls down some stairs.  (Representing humbling ourselves to the Word and going down the stairs of death to self with the righteous.) I was telling them about my experience with anorexia, how I would weigh myself a lot and that if I weigh even a little bit over I would not eat. (Spiritually, this represents starving the flesh man and feeding the spirit man. We must constantly weigh our choices in living the crucified life and be careful not to make choices to feed the flesh man so that he continues to live.) While we were walking down the stairs, we were with a large group of people. We walked past a large window pane that had three windows. I saw three orange, velcro chords hanging from the windows. All I saw were the cords, but when I asked the people around me about the cords they said that there were three dead bodies hanging from them. (It's interesting all the 3's that have been mentioned in this dream. According to bible study.org, Jesus prayed three times in the Garden of Gethsemane before His arrest. He was placed on the cross at the 3rd hour of the day (9 a.m.) and died at the 9th hour (3 p.m.). There were 3 hours of darkness that covered the land while Jesus was suffering on the cross from the 6th hour to the 9th hour. 3 is the number of resurrection. Christ was dead for 3 full days and 3 full nights. There are 27 books in the New Testament, which is 3 x 3 x 3, or completeness to the third power.) The people around me started taking pictures of the dead bodies hanging from the windows. (The people around us see our physical witness of the crucified life and they are impressed and take note.) As I looked a second time, while continuing to walk down the stairs, I still couldn't see the dead bodies, only the cords. (Because we only see and understand the method which is submission to the Word of God. We don't see the bodies because we understand that this is a school of spiritual death to self.) I walked into the library which was a dark brown color because everything was made of wood. (It made me think of the library that was in my high school) (The library is made of wood because we are studying the Way of the cross.) I went looking for a sister in the library because I wanted to tell her what the Lord did for me by not allowing me to see the three dead bodies hanging from the windows. When I found her, I told her what the Lord did for me, but she didn't want to hang out with me because she was hanging out with other people. (We aren't supposed to focus on our old dead nature in the mirror. When we focus on the Word and His promises, the Lord helps us to see Him in the mirror by faith. Many times people who are caught up in worldly lusts will reject our testimonies because it would convict them of their sins and they would have to repent and give it all up.) The scene changed, and we were in this room that was all white with a lot of people. There were some other people playing outside of the school.  I saw an Asian guy whom I knew this sister was dating. The Asian guy (Representing satan the dragon and the harlots who worship him) opened the doors, to the outside. (When there are idolaters in our midst they open the doors for judgment to threaten us.)  Then he roared like a lion and a big cloud streamed out of his mouth. I knew there was a storm coming from that cloud. 1Pet 5:8  Be sober, be watchful: your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.  Rev 12:15  And the serpent cast out of his mouth after the woman water as a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream. It started to rain really hard and the people who had been playing around outside of the school started to run toward the all white room we were in to get out of the rain. (This represents the judgments that God is bringing will cause many to repent and turn towards the safety of sanctification and a great revival will come.) Then, all of a sudden, it became sunny and I saw Obadiah  (Meaning: servant or worshiper of the Lord) who was in the room run outside with the other little children to go play in the sun/Son. Ecc 11:7  Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun.  (This represents Mat.4:16, speaking of the appearing of Jesus in His man-child ministers during the former and latter reign outpouring, The people that sat in darkness saw a great light, And to them that sat in the region and shadow of death, to them did light spring up.) I saw Angelica (Representing the angels) and I knew she was watching Obadiah and the other little children. Then I woke up.  (Heb. 1:13-14  But of which of the angels hath he said at any time, Sit thou on my right hand, Till I make thine enemies the footstool of thy feet? 14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to do service for the sake of them that shall inherit salvation?)   Looking at the Cross Heals Our Double Vision   Marilyn Klinke - 11/16/21 (David's notes in red) I had the following dream early this morning. I wasn't sure if it was just for me or not. When I cast lots about sending it in, I received 3 heads, so here it is. I dreamed that I was living in the state of Massachusetts (Taken from the Native American language, meaning "at the great hill”, representing Mount Zion. Massachusetts is on the East coast. Eze. 44:1-3 speaks of Jesus entering through the Eastern gate of Jerusalem when He returns). I was attending a university there. (Representing studying the meat of the deeper spiritual truths that lead to greater maturity in Christ).  I was driving a car with Barry (representing Jesus, my spiritual husband) sitting in the passenger seat. (In real life, I have not driven in over 20 years because of double vision and other visual weaknesses.) (There are a lot of people with spiritual double vision. Distractions to draw them away for the purpose of God for them. It's a good exhortation to seek first the Kingdom and all other needs will be met.) As I was looking out the windshield, straight ahead, I saw a huge cross that was about 50 feet high  (Representing Pentecost - filled with the Spirit and Jubilee - freedom from bondage.) in the sky and the clouds behind it. The cross was bright, shining and very thin, like it was made of 2 very straight knife blades. (Heb 4:12 For the Word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.) As I was looking at the cross, I realized that I could see almost perfectly, and there was almost no double vision. (Mat 6:22 The light of the body is the eye, if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be light). End of dream. I received by random Acts 9:18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales and he received sight forthwith and arose and was baptized.   Also last night before falling asleep, I was listening to the one hour UBBS Humility Brings Faith and Power: Part 1. I have listened to this series on humility a number of times through the years, but it really hit home last night, as Father has been dealing with me so much about not judging or criticizing anyone for anything. This study focuses so much on pride and I know that criticism and judging are rooted in pride.    Removing the Threat of Death from God's Chosen Vanessa Weeks - 10/14/21 (David's notes in red) I dreamed that I was in a large room and some of the walls were light blue. (Representing some Christians who abide lightly in heavenly places in Christ Jesus?) This was a gathering place for a seven day Trump rally and this was the seventh day. (A day to cease from the works of man.)  I saw many white tables set up with a few people sitting at them. I realized that as the week had gone on, there were less and less people attending. President Trump's table was at the front. He was sitting there facing his supporters and speaking to them. I was standing to the right of his table and looking at some flower bouquets wrapped in cellophane. These were all different colors and types of flowers. I asked the Lord for a word about the flowers and received by faith at random Lam.1:15. (In context 14-15) 14  The yoke of my transgressions is bound by his hand; They are knit together, they are come up upon my neck; he hath made my strength to fail: The Lord hath delivered me into their hands, against whom I am not able to stand. 15  The Lord hath set at nought all my mighty men in the midst of me; He hath called a solemn assembly against me to crush my young men: The Lord hath trodden as in a winepress the virgin daughter of Judah. (My thought on this is that flowers are placed where people die, as in "crush my young men”.) President Trump was telling his supporters what would turn things around in this country. He was encouraging them and telling them what they could do. As I heard this, I was thinking that it was not enough and there needed to be 100 times the people to overcome the DS. (Or the Man-child can push the Trump agenda through.) (The 100 fold fruit of the Man-child ministry will bring authority. Mat.13:23 And he that was sown upon the good ground, this is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; who verily beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.) While he was still speaking, I sat at his table to his right and there was a space between us. (Trump is getting separated more from his constituency as time passes.) (There should be a separation between us and the political world). On the table in front of me was a cardboard table tent with some words written in black ink and a black spot in the middle. (Barry: These are the cardboard triangle shaped advertisements which are often used in restaurants. The black spot reminded us of an old pirate movie, Treasure Island, in which, if a man was handed a paper with a black spot, he was destined to die. So this sounds like a death threat.) (Trump's constituency is under a death threat by the DS plagues.) Then President Trump moved to the right to be right next to me. (Moving closer to his constituency.)  As he did this, he thumped with his right hand the table tent with the black spot, away from me. (This saving the constituency from the DS death threat.)  This reminds me of Isa 45, because God called President Trump as a Cyrus, [to save his people from DS Babylon] for the sake of Israel His chosen. 1 Thus saith Jehovah to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him, and I will loose the loins of kings; to open the doors before him, and the gates shall not be shut: 2 I will go before thee, and make the rough places smooth; I will break in pieces the doors of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron; 3 and I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that it is I, Jehovah, who call thee by thy name, even the God of Israel. 4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel my chosen, I have called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. All this time, He continued speaking to his supporters, and then he looked directly at me and said, "But that's your job, isn't it?" I said, “Yes.", but I did not know what he meant or what my job was. Then I woke up. (We have been told that the Man-child is coming to help push Trump's agenda through and we should pray and do warfare for this to happen.) I asked the Lord what my job was and received by faith at random Mat. 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be of you, that shall have one sheep, and if this fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out? My finger was on sabbath day and in this dream it was the seventh or sabbath day.  (This is an exhortation to cease from our works on God's Sabbath and pray Trump's agenda through.) I asked the Lord what He wanted to say about this dream and received by faith at random 2 Ch. 17:17 (In context 17-19)  And of Benjamin: Eliada a mighty man of valor, and with him two hundred thousand armed with bow and shield; 18 and next to him Jehozabad and with him a hundred and fourscore thousand ready prepared for war. 19 These were they that waited on the king, besides those whom the king put in the fortified cities throughout all Judah.  (Again, this is an exhortation for the faithful people of God to do warfare to strengthen the King and bring this to pass.) My finger was on Benjamin in verse 17. I looked up the meaning of 17 in the Bible on the internet. It means "overcoming the enemy" and "complete victory." Also, Benjamin means, "The son of the right hand.” After I had this dream, on the same day in that morning prayer meeting, Don received by faith at random Jer. 48:10  Cursed be he that doeth the work of Jehovah negligently; and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.  (The people of God are being negligent in spiritual warfare to bring down the forces of satan and bring back the King. Let everyone stop their trivial lifestyles and immediately begin to fight and intercede for the promise of Cyrus to come to pass.) Father I ask you to help us do our warfare by your Spirit so you will turn things around in this country. Thank you that you remove the threat of death the enemy has for your chosen through President Trump, in Jesus name, Amen.   The Lord is Teaching Us How to Fight Marie Kelton - 11/1/21 (David's notes in red) During the meeting at night I had a vision that the Lord was teaching my spiritual man how to fight. While I was looking at the vision, I asked the Lord about spiritual warfare and the Lord turned from teaching my spiritual man and smiled and said, "Put on the whole armor of God." Eph 6:11  Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  (And then after we're armored up go to fight in this battle. Decree the victory of Cyrus over Babylon. Send the destruction of satan's DS kingdom as per Jer. 50 & 51.)   All Things are Possible to Them That Believe Deb Horton - 8/1/21 (David's notes in red) Verse for morning meeting given through faith at random on 8/1/21: (Mat.12:44) Then he saith, I will return into my house whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. (45) Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more evil than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man becometh worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this evil generation.  (Just as these people lost everything that they gained through the ministry of Jesus because they didn't continue in faith and repentance to fill their temple with Him so it could be now. We must continue to fight the good fight of the faith until the end.) I dreamed all night that I was in Jeff & Sandy's house but only recall a snippet. David was sitting on a plain wooden chair at a plain, medium-sized wooden table and David was studying a book that was opened on the table, taking notes, writing on a pad. There was a mellow, comforting light in the room but I don't know where it was coming from and the room doesn't exist at the house in real life.  I walked into the room and just sat down in a chair next to David without saying anything and waited. After a while, he looked up over at me and asked me a hypothetical question based on what he was studying. I can't recall the entire question, but it began, "Do you think it's possible that" or "Do you think it's possible to”) ... I thought about it for a bit, and then I happily answered "Yes.” (Mar 9:23  And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst! All things are possible to him that believeth. Mar 10:27  Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for all things are possible with God. So we must exercise our faith and believe in the prophecy of Cyrus among others.) When I woke up and looked at the clock, it said 4:44 a.m. (Jesus came in the fourth watch.)(Gematria equivalents in Hebrew for 444 are "God came to earth" and “The time has come” and “Iesous” [Greek for Jesus] and “The snake has been beheaded”. meaning DS Babylon has already been conquered.)  My bedroom clock automatically adjusts itself with every clock change, but gains a minute each time and it's currently seven minutes fast. So then I went into the kitchen to write this down at the table, and after I was done, I looked at the clock on the microwave, which also said 4:44. That's two witnesses. By random computer, Lord, would You please give me a verse for this dream? 1Jn.5:12 He that hath the Son hath the life; he that hath not the Son of God hath not the life.     Select LanguageAfrikaansAlbanianAmharicArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBengaliBosnianBulgarianCatalanCebuanoChichewaChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CorsicanCroatianCzechDanishDutchEsperantoEstonianFilipinoFinnishFrenchFrisianGalicianGeorgianGermanGreekGujaratiHaitian CreoleHausaHawaiianHebrewHindiHmongHungarianIcelandicIgboIndonesianIrishItalianJapaneseJavaneseKannadaKazakhKhmerKinyarwandaKoreanKurdish (Kurmanji)KyrgyzLaoLatinLatvianLithuanianLuxembourgishMacedonianMalagasyMalayMalayalamMalteseMaoriMarathiMongolianMyanmar (Burmese)NepaliNorwegianOdia (Oriya)PashtoPersianPolishPortuguesePunjabiRomanianRussianSamoanScots GaelicSerbianSesothoShonaSindhiSinhalaSlovakSlovenianSomaliSpanishSundaneseSwahiliSwedishTajikTamilTatarTeluguThaiTurkishTurkmenUkrainianUrduUyghurUzbekVietnameseWelshXhosaYiddishYorubaZulu Powered by Translate Printer-friendly version

On this replay of a popular episode, Michael Meade considers how “gratitude is a sign of nobility in our souls” and yet “gratitude can also be difficult to express because it comes from a deep place in the heart where pain can also dwell.” Thus begins Michael Meade's mythological consideration of the essential place of gratitude in human consciousness and at the core of human nature.   A potent telling of the Mayan creation myth leads to a surprising array of images and the idea that unless the human capacity for technological invention can be placed in service of the ongoing story of creation, we will continue to turn the natural world against us.   We are most human and most alive when we allow ourselves to be touched by the beauty of the world and when we feel genuine gratitude for the life we have been given, no matter how hard or how dark the world around us may become.  In this way, feeling grateful and expressing gratitude helps to bring grace back into the world.   You can hear Michael Meade live by joining his new online series “Soul's Hidden Wholeness” that begins on Friday, December 3.

In this provocative book, The Cydonia Codex authors George J. Haas and William R. Saunders use archaeological research discoveries and photographs from NASA and other space programs to document the uncanny similarities between Martian and now-extinct Earth cultures. The Martian Codex begins with a review of the thirty-year history of documenting the famous “Face on Mars” landform from NASA's first photographs in 1976 to the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's HiRISE shots in 2007. Detailed analysis shows it as a split-faced structure that precisely resembles a set of masks from a temple in Cerros, Mexico.Part two provides additional examples of two-faced and composite structures all over the red planet. Haas and Saunders explore a series of recurring motifs by providing side-by-side views of the Martian geoglyphs with their terrestrial pre-Columbian counterparts. The results substantiate a commonality between two worlds in that both depict specific gods and characters from the creation mythology of the Mayan people, as recorded in the sacred Popol Vuh. This fact-based book represents the most persuasive argument yet that extraterrestrials may indeed have appeared on Earth during an earlier era.George J.

Why is there so much emphasis on the thoughts and actions that govern our day to day lives, but not as much on the ones that happen as we sleep?  It's difficult to understate the influence of modern technology because its effects are so tangible. We see how platforms like TARTLE are geared towards a clear end goal. We're connected to our smartphones and devices around the clock. But we seem to be forgetting about the first device and data set that we were given to work with: the human mind, and our subconscious. At most, dreams are an interesting icebreaker or topic for idle talk—but we think that they can mean something more. It is time to revisit how dreams can have an impact on the course of our lives, as well as that of the people around us.   Dreams: Our Most Ancient, Most Well-Developed Technology   Sidarta Ribeiro shared a personal experience with a fellow PhD candidate. One day, Sidarta Ribeiro needed a ride to the field center of Rockefeller University for an experiment. However, he was unable to push through with his activity because it was used by another candidate. This setback meant that he had to reschedule his experiment, which affected his productivity. Understandably, this affected Sidarta Ribeiro's perception of the person. He went to sleep feeling annoyed and irritated. However, he dreamt of a scenario where he angrily confronted the person and ended up getting physically hurt. When he woke up, he found himself in the right mindset and mood to peacefully discuss what happened with his colleague, and they made amends. This is a personal example of how dreams can be used to simulate instances of the future using references that we have made in the past. It can help guide us and give us insight. Giving the mind some space to process what has happened throughout our day can have some benefits for our wellbeing.   Bringing Back the Focus to the Self   Alex mentioned how, surprisingly, we only spend 55 percent of our lives awake. This means that if we don't pay attention to our dreams, we're missing out on almost half of our entire life experience In the modern world, there is a growing dichotomy between inner work and outer work that we need to bring our attention to— especially when we put so much value on what is external, but choose to forego focused introspection on the self. Sidarta Ribeiro pointed out that today's research into mental health and wellbeing appear to be closely intertwined with drugs that induce a dream-like state. This could be the first step in a collective effort to bring back emphasis on our subconscious. It's time to return to our inner world and start using dreams, one of our most ancient technologies, to our advantage once more.   Dreams as a Gamechanger Throughout History   The dream state has had a massive impact on the course of history. One solid example is the Oracle of Delphi, a widely revered high priestess of the Temple of Apollo who gave predictions and guidance to both individuals and city-states. Her words influenced the decisions of important figureheads such as Aegeus, the king of Athens; Croesus, the king of Lydia; and Alexander the Great, conqueror of the ancient world. Ancient and contemporary Mayan religion also posited that dreams are sacred, because they functioned as portals that helped an individual connect with their ancestors for guidance. The dream state is closely intertwined in the definition of spirituality across several religions and concepts of faith.  Today, the role that our dreams fulfilled in old societies is now being fulfilled by a variety of different mechanisms and technologies. Amidst all this progress, it's time to take a break and ask ourselves: do we like where we're going, now that we're leaving our subconscious in the dust?   Closing Thoughts: Human Progress Through the Dream State   We are consistently pressured to maximize our productivity and levels of efficiency. The technologies we develop are influencing us to think of our value according to the volume of our work. While our reliance on the dream state has, to a large extent, been diminished due to our increased proficiency in technical knowledge, we forget to ask ourselves about the implications of this change. It is undeniable that our subconscious has played a massive role—not just in the individual lives of ordinary people, but in the rise and fall of civilizations. The dream state is a data mine that we, as a collective, are slowly losing out on. It's an opportunity for introspection that can help us make better decisions. Most importantly, it helps us regulate our wellbeing through proper rest and recreation. What's your data worth? www.tartle.co   Tcast is brought to you by TARTLE.

Support the show Music by Kevin MacLeod, .   Links to all the research resources are on our website.    In the opal-mining region of South Australia, lies the town of Coober Peedy.  You're welcome to visit, but don't expect to see much.  There aren't many buildings, though the landscape is dotted with ventilation shafts.  There's almost no movement at all.  So if the town is here, where are its 3500 residents?  Look down.  My name's Moxie and this is your brain on facts.   In 1943, three ordinary-looking US cities were constructed at record speed, but left off all maps.  Oak Ridge, Tennessee; Richland, Washington; and Los Alamos, New Mexico held laboratories and sprawling industrial plants, as well as residential neighborhoods, schools, churches, and stores.  The three cities had a combined population of more than 125,000 and one extraordinary purpose: to create nuclear weapons as part of the Manhattan project, the U.S. military's initiative to develop nuclear weapons.     Their design was driven by unique considerations, such as including buffer zones for radiation leaks or explosions. In each case, there were natural features, topographical features, that were considered to be favorable. In all three cases, they were somewhat remote—in the case of Richland and Los Alamos, very remote—which offered a more secure environment, of course. But also, in the event of a disaster, an explosion or a radiation leak, that would also minimize the potential exposure of people outside the project to any sort of radiation danger.  The sites were  selected far from one another in case German or Japanese bombers somehow managed to penetrate that far into the United States, it would be harder for them in a single bombing run to take out more than one facility.  K-25 plant at Oak Ridge, which was where they enriched uranium using the gaseous diffusion method, was the largest building in the world under a single roof, spanning more than 40 acres.    Before you being any building project, you have to clear the site of things like trees, high spots, people. In 1942, the government approached the families that lived near the Clinch river in Tennessee, some of whom had farmed there for generations, and kicked them out, telling them the land was needed for a “demolition range,” so as to scare off hold-outs with the threat of adjacent explosions.  The town scaled up fast.   Oak Ridge was initially conceived as a town for 13,000 people but grew to 75,000 by the end of the war, the biggest of the secret cities. The laboratories took up most of the space, but rather than constructing basic dormitories for employees, the architects and designers settled on a suburban vision.  To pull this off quickly and secretly, the architects relied on prefabricated housing, in some cases, a house might come in two halves on the back of a truck to be assembled on-site. These were called “alphabet houses;” A houses were the most modest (read: tiny), while D houses included dining rooms.  Housing was assigned based on seniority, though allowances were sometimes made for large families.     And race.  This was the early 40's, after all.  The secret suburbs for factories manufacturing megadeaths were segregated by design.  Their houses were called “hutments,” little more than plywood frames without indoor plumbing, insulation or glass in the windows.  Though two of the first public schools in the south to be desegregated were in Oak Ridge. They even threatened to secede from Tennessee in order to desegregate, so at least there's that.  There were white families in the hutments as well and all of the residents of that lower-class neighborhood were under more surveillance and stricter rules than the families in better housing.  Married couples may be forbidden to live together.  By the end of the war, most of the white families had been moved out of the hutments and but many of the African American families continued to live in the basic dwellings until the early 1950s.    These towns didn't appear on any official maps, and visitors were screened by guards posted at the entrances.  Anyone over 12 had to have official ID.  Firearms, cameras, and even binoculars were prohibited.  Billboards were installed all over town to remind workers to keep their mouths shut about their work, even though most workers knew very little about the project's true scope.  For example, you job may be to watch a gauge for eight hours and flip a switch if it goes to high.  You don't know what you're measuring or what the machine is doing.  All you've been told is to flip the switch when the needle hits a certain number.  In Los Alamos and Richland, the entire neighborhood may have the same mailing address.  At Oak Ridge, street addresses were designed to be confusing to outsiders. Bus routes might be called X-10 or K-25 while dorms had simple names such as M1.  There were no signs on buildings. The town was full of such ciphers, and even employees didn't know how to decode them all.  The use of words such as “atomic” or “uranium” was taboo lest it tip off the enemy.   When the US dropped the atom bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945, the city's secret was out. Many residents celebrated at this turning point in the war, but not all.  Mary Lowe Michel, a typist in Oak Ridge, is quoted in an exhibit on display now at the National Building Museum in DC: “The night that the news broke that the bombs had been dropped, there was joyous occasions in the streets, hugging and kissing and dancing and live music and singing that went on for hours and hours. But it bothered me to know that I, in my very small way, had participated in such a thing, and I sat in my dorm room and cried.”  All three cities remained part of the military industrial complex, continuing to work on nuclear weapons during the cold war as well as broader scientific research.  Today Oak Ridge is heavily involved in renewable energy, minus the barbed wire fence.   For most of the twentieth century, if the US was doing it, so was the USSR.  We had closed cities to build nuclear weapons, and so did the Soviet Union.  We had three, they had….lots. Like, a lot a lot.  Like, multiple screens on the Wikipedia list.  Where the US began to open its closed cities after the war, the USSR was building more and more, and not just for nuclear weapons.  These closed cities were nicknamed “post boxes,” because they would be named for the nearest non-secret city and the end of their post code; or simply “boxes” for their closed nature. During the two decades following World War II, dozens of closed cities were built around the country. Some were naukogradi (“science cities”) or akademgorodoki (“academic cities”), while others developed military technology and later spacecraft.  The official name was closed administrative-territorial formations or zakrytye administrativno-territorial'nye obrazovaniya, or ZATOs.    The cities were largely built by slave labor from the Gulag prison camps, which at the time accounted for 23% of the non-agricultural labor force in the Soviet Union.  They were guarded like gulags, too - surrounded by barbed wire and guards, with no one was allowed to enter or leave without official authorization.  Many residents did not leave the city once between their arrival and their death.  That being said, the captive residents enjoyed access to housing, food, and health care better than Soviet citizens elsewhere.  While most towns in the Soviet Union were run by local communist party committees, military officials oversaw the secret cities that would eventually be home to over 100,000 people.  Even during construction, officials were ordered to use trusted prisoners only, meaning no Germans, POWs, hard criminals, political prisoners.  Nevertheless, even living alongside Gulag prisoners, residents believed they were making a valuable contribution to their country. Nikolai Rabotnov, a resident of Chelyabinsk-65, remembered, “I was sure that within our barbed labyrinth, I inhaled the air of freedom!”   Arzamas-16, today known by its original name Sarov, was one of the most important sites in the early development of the first Soviet atomic bomb and hydrogen and was roughly the Soviet equivalent of Los Alamos.  Scientists, workers, and their families enjoyed privileged living conditions and were sheltered from difficulties like military service and economic crisis.  Leading researchers were paid a very large salary for those times.  Chelyabinsk-65 or Ozersk was home to a plutonium production plant similar to the American facilities built at Richland.  Located near a collective farm in the southern Ural Mountains, Chelyabinsk-65 was more or less built from nothing, where Arzamas-16 was an existing town that was taken over.  After the basics of the city were completed, early years were very difficult for the residents. The cities lacked basic infrastructure and suffered from high rates of alcoholism and poor living conditions. The Mayak Plutonium Plant dumped nuclear waste in the nearby Techa River, causing a health crisis not only for the residents of Chelyabinsk-65 but for all the villages which ran along it.   Conditions at Chelyabinsk-65/Ozersk would not improve until after the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953.  You remember that story, it was in our episode For Want of a Nail.  Owing to the plutonium plant, Chelyabinsk-65 is still one of the most polluted places in the world. Some residents refer to it as the “graveyard of the Earth.”  Somehow, though, it's considered a prestigious place to live where.  When the government polled residents after the Cold War had thawed over whether to open the city, they voted to keep it closed.  In fact, half of the nuclear scientists said they would refuse to stay if it was opened.  As one resident explained, “We take pride in the fact that the state trusts us enough to live and work in Ozersk.”   In 1991, the Soviet Union officially disbanded and its fifteen republics became independent, four of which had nuclear weapons deployed on their territories. This was of great concern to the West, as these newly formed nations did not have the financial or technological means to properly store and safeguard these weapons.  With budgets a fraction of what they were in the decades before, the standard of living in the ZATOs quickly declined.  Security went with it, as the soldiers who guarded the ZATOs also saw their wages slashed.   With little prospect of employment and limited security, scientists suddenly had the freedom not only to leave their cities but to leave the country.  Fear quickly spread in the United States that they could help develop nuclear programs in other countries, such as Iran.  In 1991, the Nunn-Lugar Act financed the transportation and dismantlement of the scattered nukes to not only reduce the number of nuclear weapons in the world but to provide the scientists with proper employment.  One result of this effort was the International Science and Technology Center in Moscow, which employed many former atomic scientists on non-weapons programs and still exists today.      If you need to hide a city from your enemies, you'd do well to move it underground.  Built in the late 50s in Wiltshire, England, the massive complex, codename Burlington was designed to safely house up to 4,000 central government personnel in the event of a nuclear strike.  In a former Bath stone quarry the city was to be the site of the main Emergency Government War Headquarters, the country's alternative seat of power if the worst happened.  Over 2/3mi/1km in length, and boasting over 60mi/97km  of roads, the underground site was designed to accommodate the Prime Minister, the Cabinet Office, civil servants and an army of domestic support staff.   Blast proof and completely self-sufficient the secret underground site could accommodate up to 4,000 people  in complete isolation from the outside world  for up to three months.  Though it was fortunately never used, the grid of roads and avenues ran between underground hospitals, canteens, kitchens, warehouses of supplies, dormitories, and offices.  The city was also equipped with the second largest telephone exchange in Britain, a BBC studio from which the PM could address the nation and a pneumatic tube system that could relay messages, using compressed air, throughout the complex.  An underground lake and treatment plant could provide all the drinking water needed.  A dozen huge tanks could store the fuel required to keep the generators in the underground power station running for up to three months.  The air within the complex could also be kept at a constant humidity and heated to around 68F/20C degrees.   The complex was kept on standby in case of future nuclear threats to the UK, until 2005, when the underground reservoir was drained, the supplies removed, the fuel tanks were emptied and the skeleton staff of four were dismissed. Some cities were not secret in their heyday, but were lost to time until recently.  In what's being hailed as a “major breakthrough” for Maya archaeology in February 2018, researchers have identified the ruins of more than 60,000 buildings hidden for centuries under the jungles of Guatemala.  Using LiDAR, or Light Detection And Ranging, scholars digitally removed the tree canopy from aerial images of the area, revealing the ruins of a sprawling pre-Columbian civilization that was far more complex and interconnected than most Maya specialists had supposed.   Mounted on a helicopter, the laser continually aims pulses toward the ground below, so many that a large number streak through the spaces between the leaves and branches, and are reflected back to the aircraft and registered by a GPS unit. By calculating the precise distances between the airborne laser and myriad points on the earth's surface, computer software can generate a three-dimensional digital image of what lies below.  To put the density of this jungle into perspective, archaeologists have been searching the area on foot for years, but did not find a single man-made feature.   “LiDAR is revolutionizing archaeology the way the Hubble Space Telescope revolutionized astronomy,” said Francisco Estrada-Belli, a Tulane University archaeologist and National Geographic Explorer. “We'll need 100 years to go through all [the data] and really understand what we're seeing.”  The project mapped more than 800 sq mi/2,100 sq km of the Maya Biosphere Reserve in the Petén region of northern Guatemala, producing the largest LiDAR data set ever obtained for archaeological research.  The old school of that held that Mayan civilization existed as scattered city-states, but these findings suggest that Central America supported an advanced civilization that was, with as many as 14 million people at its peak around 1,200 years ago, comparable to sophisticated cultures like ancient Greece or China.  The LiDAR even revealed raised highways connecting urban centers and complex irrigation and agricultural terracing systems.  And that was without the use of the wheel or beasts of burden   Despite standing for millennia, these sites are in danger from looting and environmental degradation.  Guatemala is losing more than 10 percent of its forests annually, and habitat loss has accelerated along its border with Mexico as trespassers burn and clear land for agriculture and human settlement.  “By identifying these sites and helping to understand who these ancient people were, we hope to raise awareness of the value of protecting these places,” Marianne Hernandez, president of the Foundation for Maya Cultural and Natural Heritage.   Lidar has also helped scientists to redraw a settlement located on the outskirts of Johannesburg, South Africa, and it tells the beginnings of a fascinating story.  Scientists from the University of Witwatersrand believe the newly discovered city was occupied in the 15th century by Tswana-speaking people who lived in the northern parts of South Africa.  Many similar Tswana city-states fell during regional wars and forced migration in the 1820s, and there was little oral or physical evidence to prove their existence.  Though archaeologists excavated some ancient ruins in the area in the 1960s, they couldn't comprehend the full extent of the settlement. By using LiDAR technology, the team was able to virtually remove vegetation and recreate images of the surrounding landscape, allowing them to produce aerial views of the monuments and buildings in a way that could not have been imagined a generation ago.    Using these new aerial photographs, they can now estimate that as many as 850 homesteads had once existed in and around the city they've given the temporary designation of SKBR.  It's likely that most homesteads housed several family members, meaning this was a city with a large population.  There are also stone towers outside some homesteads, as high as 8ft2.5m high with bases 16ft/5m wide.  The academics believe these may have been bases for grain bins or even burial markers for important people.  Though the team estimates they are still another decade or two away from fully understanding the city's inhabitants and how the city came to be, and ceased to exist.   Modern technology has also helped us find an ancient city in Cambodia.  Constructed around 1150, the palaces and temples of Angkor Wat were, and still are, the biggest religious complex on Earth, covering an area four times larger than Vatican City.   In the 15th Century, the Khmer kings abandoned their city and moved to the coast.  They built a new city, Phnom Penh, the present-day capital of Cambodia.  Life in Angkor slowly ebbed away.  Everything made of wood rotted away; everything made of stone was reclaimed by the jungle.   An international team, led by the University of Sydney's Dr Damian Evans, was able to map out /370 sq km around Angkor in unprecedented detail in less than two weeks - no mean feat given the density of the jungle.  Rampant illegal logging of valuable hardwoods had stripped away much of the primary forest, allowing dense new undergrowth to fill in the gaps. It was unclear whether the lasers could locate enough holes in the canopy to penetrate to the forest floor.  The prevalence of landmines from Cambodia's civil war are another area where shooting Lidar from a helicopter really shines. The findings were staggering.  The archaeologists found undocumented cityscapes etched on to the forest floor, with remnants of boulevards, reservoirs, ponds, dams, dikes, irrigation canals, agricultural plots, low-density settlement complexes and orderly rows of temples. They were all clustered around what the archaeologists realized must be a royal palace, a vast structure surrounded by a network of earthen dikes—the ninth-century fortress of King Jayavarman II. “To suspect that a city is there, somewhere underneath the forest, and then to see the entire structure revealed with such clarity and precision was extraordinary,” Evans told me. “It was amazing.”     These new discoveries have profoundly transformed our understanding of Angkor, the greatest medieval city on Earth.  Most striking of all was evidence of large-scale hydraulic engineering, the defining signature of the Khmer empire, used to store and distribute seasonal monsoon water using a complex network of huge canals and reservoirs.  Harnessing the monsoon provided food security - and made the ruling elite fantastically rich. For the next three centuries they channelled their wealth into the greatest concentration of temples on Earth.  Angkor was a bustling metropolis at its peak, covering /1,000 sq km; It would be another 700 years before London reached a similar size.     Bonus fact: and not to be a pedant, but “monsoon” refers no to the heavy rains in the rainy season from May to September, but to the strong, sustained winds that bring them.   And that's where we run out of ideas, at least for today.  Some cities are hidden, not for reasons of subterfuge or dereliction, but by necessity.  80% of the world's opal comes from the area of Coober Peedy, but that wealth is nothing to the sun it's going to continue with the Mad Max motif.  It may be 115 degrees F/47C outside, but it's only 74F/23C underground.  When heavy mining equipment was introduced a century ago, people took advantage of it to dug themselves homes, a church, hotels and B&Bs, a museum, casino, a gift shop, and, of course, a pub.  Remember...thanks...

00:02.36 Max Shank Welcome back. Everyone to the max and Mike Podcast Hope you're having a lovely day. We're talking about long-term Strategy V versus short-term Burnout. There's a quote I like from the daw. Which is the flame that burns brightest burns half as long and I think that's a natural that's a natural method for super masculine guys. Anyone who's like trying to prove themselves or trying to achieve. A lot in a short amount of time. It's It's really common to experience some burnout I know I've experienced some burnout I would imagine that most of the people listening also have Mike I'm sure you have experienced some. Ah. 00:58.34 mikebledsoe Few times. Yeah. 00:59.80 Max Shank Burnout in your life a few times. So yeah, well I'm reminded of another quote from the dow I'll just quote the dow this whole episode because it's it's it's my favorite book. It really did. 01:08.50 mikebledsoe Perfect. Well it makes sense to quote the doubt for this topic. 01:18.28 Max Shank Put patience in a ah strong light and the the quote that I'm thinking of now is nature does not hurry and yet all is accomplished and kind of makes you start focusing on. Process rather than the result and it's a bit of a paradox because if you don't have a clear target in your mind you are maybe less likely to achieve it. But if you are so chaotically just maniacally focused on the result you won't. Appreciate the process of how to get there and you might have a little less craftsmanship. So it's kind of that balancing of the pain and the desire to achieve a certain goal versus the peace and presence of being where you are. And focusing on what you're doing like a ah Master craftsman. 02:21.45 mikebledsoe It's so much more enjoyable to be in that craftsman space and being in that I guess we could call it like the craftsman versus the visionary and or like being to me a visionary is someone who who sets a ah. 02:30.87 Max Shank Ah, what. 02:38.26 mikebledsoe Ah, plan for the future but in a way that is clear where you also have the daydreamer So the visionaries like the the healthy way of seeing the future but the daydreamer is somebody who spent waste time. 02:49.59 Max Shank What? but. 02:55.47 mikebledsoe Thinking about what could be in the future but doesn't actually execute. But yeah I like the idea of having like the visionary is is 1 thing and the craftsman's on the other side and ah I've spent a lot of time in the visionary role and 1 of the things that i've. 02:58.30 Max Shank Ah, but. 03:13.53 mikebledsoe That I've needed to do because I grew up a daydreamer and then I started shifting that consciously into creating a very specific thing I would narrow my focus down onto. We're going to accomplish this and I noticed it what I've adjusted over time is the amount of attention I. 03:15.58 Max Shank A. 03:33.13 mikebledsoe Put into vision and the amount ah amount of attention I put into being the craftsman have shifted so I spend so when I I put a lot of attention into being a visionary I'll ah so I'll wipe an entire day on my schedule and once a year 03:39.24 Max Shank Something like. 03:50.94 mikebledsoe And I'll envision the next year for my business for instance and then yeah and then you know I create in every ninety days I meet with my team for a few hours to create the ninety day plan and every month we meet for like an hour to make sure that that month is squared away and so that's. 03:55.18 Max Shank It's like chunking. 04:09.41 mikebledsoe But rhythm that I found. That's really helped me balance out that visionary with execution and it's allowed me to really just focus in on the execution be a craftsman because I trust that the plan that I'm working towards that. What I what I've planned to execute. Is actually taking me to where I want to be and now when I'm executing I'm not thinking about the result I'm just thinking about doing the best job I can with a thing that's right in front of me right now and it's created a lot more patience and things have become yeah like life has been. More enjoyable I don't try to squeeze too much in too little time. Um, but you know hey I turned forty last week so this is definitely something that comes with age. 04:50.95 Max Shank Ah. 04:59.90 Max Shank Well, some people never get there right? They live and die without really honing that skill of I just call it time travel skills. You know you look back to your books on the wall which is like your memories. You look forward into the crystal ball. Which is the future and then you have the ability to be super present here and now like ram dos style and if you're able to do that consciously like I am going to project myself into a potential future and. Iron out those details and clarify that vision. That's a superpower and if you're stuck there Forever. You are just swimming in anxiety and if you're going back into the past and you're able to do it expertly. That's how you learn and I mean. You know nostalgia is kind of like a dangerous thing too. I think but if you if you stay in the past too long. You can get depressed. You can get hung up on all of the stuff you did like oh I should have done it differently I mean I always think that way. 06:10.13 mikebledsoe Or there's also like people who who they they they have the nostalgia of the past and then they are comparing it to the present moment and then and in a way the where the present's not as good as the past that doesn't happen as much with our friends probably. But. 06:24.72 Max Shank Yeah, totally I mean. 06:29.89 mikebledsoe If you look at the average person. The average 35 year olds probably like me in high school man that was when I was having all the fun. 06:35.78 Max Shank Well, the only absolute is relativity. You can't describe something without describing something else first and when I think about the the stressors that I experience now here's a story that will make everyone hate me. And it will paint like a really good picture like so ah first it'll it'll make you like me and then it'll make you go fuck that guy so first I remember that my my mom left and my dad and my brother got really depressed. And I was doing all the work basically and my outward frustration was like nothing like I was upset about it but it was like whatever the other day 1 of the speakers in my steam shower stopped working. And I was like what the fuck and like 1 of those is like obviously worse like for a child to shoulder the burden of supporting a family is like way more than I mean I still had 1 steam shower speaker that was working right. Like it wasn't like a whole thing but it but it just goes to show that that like relativity you have this idea based on ah the past, but you also have um, kind of like feature creep. You know people don't like to go down. In Lifestyle chris rockt is like a hilarious bit. It's like women don't go down in lifestyle and he says he does like this whole thing where like once you get to a certain level. You never want to go the opposite way. So it's all it's all what you compare it to and if you get stuck. Like what you're talking about you either are looking back at the past as better than right now or you're looking back as like oh I I was bad then or I did something wrong and then you pull it you pull it with you into the present. So. 08:43.40 mikebledsoe Um, a lot of people end up punishing themselves for a past behavior in the present moment which then just creates creates more negative future moments. 08:49.81 Max Shank Being able. 08:54.74 Max Shank Dude. It steals the potential joy and peace out of the present and I I did a ton of that like I would um, you know who knows exactly why but when I I would like rehearse and prepare for a conversation. Even. 09:14.44 mikebledsoe Yeah. 09:17.41 Max Shank And be like okay this person might say this and then I can say that and then I would also look back to times when I was like a child and be like oh so stupid for saying that that was so mean or that was so dumb and so I think it's it's normal. 09:29.60 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah. 09:36.97 Max Shank To have those feelings. It's just whether or not you can let them go so that you can be present and you can also project forward with a with a powerful positioning like I can influence my life in a constructive way. 09:39.91 mikebledsoe What. 09:54.68 Max Shank Here's my future plan that is better and also I can come back to the present and do that deep work because if you're thinking if you're just thinking about the pot of gold If you're just thinking about the result you're probably not going to do as good craftsmanship. 10:09.54 mikebledsoe Yeah, absolutely the way I look at ah emotions and memories. Ah, there are everyone has emotions they dwell on and emotions they avoid and you know. 10:23.71 Max Shank Um. 10:27.32 mikebledsoe People Probably a lot of people probably hear that and think yeah people dwell on happy you know, positive emotions or what's perceived as positive emotions and avoid negative and that's not necessarily true I know that for myself I used to dwell on guilt The the emotion of guilt and. 10:38.77 Max Shank The hurt. 10:46.46 mikebledsoe Like it. It was deep down in my gut and like I just felt guilt from like when I was a little kid. It just felt guilty a lot and then I got older and I felt guilty a lot and and the benefit of it of guilt is that you'll change your behavior because you're you're guilty about how you did something. 10:54.74 Max Shank Are. 11:03.74 Max Shank In here. 11:05.78 mikebledsoe But the problem is is if any emotion. But even if it's joy if you're dwelling on that instead of just allowing that emotion to move because they they tend to move unless you suppress or or just um, start creating start. 11:14.60 Max Shank Hit a. 11:24.76 mikebledsoe Remembering stories that you associate with that feeling and you end up in a perpetual loop like oh everyone likely can understand this or go oh I do do that is thing about ah something you were you felt guilty about or bad about in the past and then you'll have that feeling. And then you'll have a thought of something else. You're guilty about and something else. You're guilty about and and so then you just end up having a bad day right? Yeah, this 1 thing triggers a memory which triggers the feeling and that feeling triggers more memories and so we end up practicing being in this. 11:44.85 Max Shank Here. Right. 12:02.37 mikebledsoe This pattern um like ah ah, a guiltridden pattern and yeah, they're just wasting so much energy and time being in a pattern versus just going like you were saying letting it go and to me the key to letting it go is to feel it fully go. You know what. I Don't really look at guilt as a negative thing. It's like it's a gift and I get to learn from it and I go look I am totally present with this emotion I Love it. I accept it I Love it and I got my lesson from it and then if you can do that. That's that's a superpower. 12:39.64 Max Shank Ah, oh yeah, once you shine a light on it. It's no longer. Ah scary. It's no longer lurking in the shadows. There's a french phrase ah to know all is to forgive all never heard that 1 I like that 1 a lot. 12:39.71 mikebledsoe Very few people can do that. 12:44.75 mikebledsoe Right. 12:54.33 mikebledsoe No. 12:59.22 Max Shank I Mean it's That's my translation. It's in French but I don't speak French Currently So um I mean I might I might later? Yeah, um, but when you think about your self. 13:05.10 mikebledsoe But used to maybe or in the future. Yeah later. Okay. 13:18.54 Max Shank Recognizing I mean I still am like this with myself you got to realize that you're a combination of different instincts and stories and all kinds of things where how could you not be more forgiving of yourself. You know like I I know so little still and you know I do this thing on my birthday where I just think man I've accomplished so little I don't really look at it as like a positive thing because it's more like feel like I'm a little bit behind ah my schedule which probably just From. Setting really high goals. But if you don't like forgive the fact that you are a monkey just trying to figure stuff out in some sort of Cyber Punk Weird Ah Lifestyle It's going to be really. Painful for you I mean the the whole reason that people do great or terrible things is because they're like deeply dissatisfied with the way things are right. So if you're not deeply dissatisfied with how the way things are ah you'll you probably do very little. You'll just Enjoy. So I think you said it best is you don't run from that emotion. You don't ignore that emotion. You experience it fully and I think Curiosity is the best way is like the most constructive ah mentality to have about it where you don't take anything personally I think that's 1 of those four agreements is do your best. Don't take anything personally. Um. 14:51.65 mikebledsoe E. 15:08.68 Max Shank So yeah, getting getting curious about the emotion and accepting it and accepting the the fact that we are very emotional creatures if not the most emotional creatures and that'll make it so you're able to forgive yourself which is kind of a precursor for letting that stuff. 15:17.89 mikebledsoe Yeah. 15:27.84 Max Shank Go that doesn't serve you. 15:28.20 mikebledsoe I Think that the taking ah I think we get further define taking things. Personally, this is a this is something that I see people get hung up on a lot and I had a ah a big breakthrough around. My thinking around taking things personally are you familiar with the concept of collapse distinction collapsed collapsed distinction. Okay so collapsed distinction is where ah the human mind. 15:53.29 Max Shank Um, class distinction. No. 16:05.47 mikebledsoe We'll take 2 words and they've collapsed them into the same meaning and so and people start behaving that way. 1 example is ah, there's a collapse distinction for ah, most mothers they have collapsed love and worry. 16:21.97 Max Shank Um, yeah. 16:23.38 mikebledsoe So it right? It makes sense right? Your mom the way she expresses love she doesn't if she's not worried about you. She doesn't feel like she's loving you and yeah, exactly and so. 16:34.16 Max Shank She might feel guilty that she's not worried. 16:42.58 mikebledsoe Um, in in Mothers learn this from their mothers. So this is something that's happened for a long time and so it's like there's a collapse distinction because if we look at but but for us so I'm a son you're a son. If our mom we get on the phone with arm change. Oh okay, the daughter. yeah yeah I think you should just go with the queue. That's what I do yeah I'm I'm ah questioning all the time. 17:04.70 Max Shank I'm thinking of changing actually to daughter or or undecided. Perhaps I think I might be a tree actually. 17:19.52 mikebledsoe Ah, so ah, was it somebody somebody so somebody somebody did somebody did I was like you was like well um I fall into the que category I'm I'm definitelyquet like once I realize the Q stand for questioning I go if you're not questioning what are you doing like. 17:22.61 Max Shank Sorry for the derail. 17:38.30 mikebledsoe And then somebody was like almost founded offensive that I would identify as questioning I go like you're straight I'm like like ah now you're questioning my identity So like like all of a sudden I'm not allowed to yeah, it's it's funny. Ah, anyways, let's get back to it Collapse distinction. Love and worry. 17:51.30 Max Shank That's hilarious. 17:57.50 mikebledsoe Ah, and as a son if my mom over the years has expressed worry for me. It's I don't experience. Love I'm experiencing. It's annoying. Yeah, yeah, it's fear which is a lot of people say those are opposites. 18:06.80 Max Shank Fear fear which is a fear and love are are good opposites. Yeah that that once again that the distinction is important right? How you use those words. 18:15.75 mikebledsoe Ah, but um. Yeah, and so we've collapsed something that is fear based with something that's love based and so ah, you know all we got to do is pull up these 2 definitions and what's the definition of love. What's the definition of Worry. These are very different things and don't even belong in the same category together. 18:26.65 Max Shank Brutal. 18:40.17 mikebledsoe So ah, that's ah, just as an example of a collapse distinction and so now now that we all have the awareness of there's something called collapse distinction that exists and the consciousness of Humans. We can then look for collapse distinction and the more distinction you can create successful distinction. That's the expansion of consciousness because we can look at at 1 aspect of consciousness is is built off of our vocabulary which is the structure of our thoughts and or ah the building blocks of our thoughts. Yeah well,, That's a whole. 19:12.29 Max Shank Probably most. 19:17.99 mikebledsoe We can go down that rabbit hole sometime. Ah, but we should define consciousness. 19:18.70 Max Shank I Mean everything that's not instinct everything. That's not instinctual is a artificial creation Thanks to language. 19:27.68 mikebledsoe Yes, yes, so 1 of the things that I 1 of the the collapse distinctions I stumbled upon a couple years ago was ah being sensitive and taking things personally so what I noticed is people would say. 19:42.31 Max Shank A. 19:47.51 mikebledsoe Oh You're just being sensitive when they really meant you're taking it personally I go. They're not being sensitive. They're taking it Personally, they're actually being insensitive by making it about them and so to me taking it personally means that. I am taking whatever is happening in the world and I'm making it mean something about me. Usually it's a very selfish thing to do and or it or it can be in a positive way still be.. You're still taking it personally. 20:09.39 Max Shank And usually in a negative way talk totally totally well it well what it is is. It's putting yourself into a victim role and taking it. It. It's funny because it is literally taking you are taking it. 20:24.20 mikebledsoe But it's usually negative. 20:34.29 Max Shank And you are making it personal to yourself so that you can adopt that victim mentality and take on that victim role which is super effective in getting you attention and I think the word is conflate. You don't want to conflate. 20:43.83 mikebledsoe Ahead. 20:50.64 Max Shank Being sensitive with taking things personally because being sensitive is actually a huge advantage if you want to be successful in life. It's very useful to be sensitive to all sorts of things and there are all kind of different sensitivity like for. Ah, developing really good feel in your fingertips. You can lay a hair in between 2 pieces of paper and you can try to feel that single hair between the 2 pieces of paper. So If you're trying to become like a body worker having that sensitivity is a huge Advantage. Advantage being sensitive to someone's body language I mean using the 5 senses that's sensitivity you're hearing so sensitivity is crazy superpower if you can pick up on a person's energy. 21:36.50 mikebledsoe E. 21:45.58 Max Shank And dogs are of course good at this because they're not so encumbered by a lot of the language things right? So There's all kinds of senses and sensations and sensitivity that we have that is crazy powerful. Ah so it's important to not conflate that like you said with taking things personally. Which is just like um the crying ego trying to get attention for no reason. 22:09.13 mikebledsoe Well that there's this is what is 1 things that made me notice it is people I would hear people go Oh I'm I'm an empath I'm very sensitive and then I hear them talk about their experience of the world and I go. You're just taking everything personally, you may be sensitive if you're both sensitive. And you take things Personally, you're in a bad spot. That's that's a rough life to live like you're picking up on everything and you're making it all mean something about you. That's Hard. So I I Tell people all the time is like people go people go Well, you don't know you're not really that sensitive I go. 22:38.10 Max Shank Um, I Totally yeah oh yeah. 22:48.15 mikebledsoe Oh I'm very sensitive and and ah and that's why I don't take things personally is because like you're not going to see me get triggered because I know that it's not about me like I It's not that I believe it. It's just I know it's not and so ah. 22:54.47 Max Shank Um, right. 23:07.22 mikebledsoe The way that people are treating me all this I was like it has nothing to do with me. It has it's it's them and it's if you can be both sensitive and you don't take things personally now that's a superpower. But if you're somebody who's sensitive and then you tend to make everything that you're perceiving about you. 23:19.56 Max Shank Agreed. 23:26.88 mikebledsoe You're you're on the opposite end you're fucked. So I think a lot of people. They don't know how to not take things personally so they end up trying to desensitize themselves because it's just too much. 23:39.70 Max Shank Yeah, Wow. It's so true and I think subconsciously um some people want that they want to take on that role. It's like ah some people like to whip and some people like to be whipped and. 23:53.85 mikebledsoe Here. 23:57.53 Max Shank You know if you don't have a physical whip handy. Maybe you can just engage in a little psychological self-torture anytime. So it's it's fascinating and I've never heard that collapsed distinction before. 24:03.47 mikebledsoe Ah, yeah. 24:12.23 mikebledsoe Okay, okay. 24:14.74 Max Shank I Think conflate means something almost similar like you either. It's like you confuse and combine words I'm pretty sure that's what it is yeah come. 24:21.10 mikebledsoe Yeah, well yeah, um, yeah, maybe I need to I need to look it up. 24:28.44 Max Shank combine it's combine 2 or more ideas or words into 1 Yeah. 24:30.82 mikebledsoe Perfect I think that's that's good. Um, the reason I used the words collapse distinction I've not heard I've heard it from a couple people it's not widely used. Um I like it because ah, there's an opposite to collapse distinction which is just. 24:40.26 Max Shank Um, yeah. 24:49.52 mikebledsoe Distinction whereas like conflate. It's like well what's what's the opposite of that. There's what what happens after we stop conflating whereas with ah with a collapse distinction I go Well, there's distinction and then there's collapse distinction. So ah. 24:49.52 Max Shank Um. 24:54.91 Max Shank Specific right? Distinction. We really should do a whole topic on language 1 of these days because that's 1 of the roots of pretty much every problem a person has right. 25:07.98 mikebledsoe Anyways. 25:20.26 mikebledsoe Yeah. 25:23.42 Max Shank You know, even Ecker tolly would say you know there there are no problems. There are only situations and all of this is just based on how we frame our experience with language and the whole concept of semantic precision which is using language. Where both parties agree on the definition. That's where most miscommunication happens like my my feeling in the world is like I Just want to like yell stop to everybody I Just want to like put my hands up and be like hey whoa. I Think there's been a misunderstanding whoa This got out of hand like I think we're just not understanding each other properly. You know. 26:04.26 mikebledsoe Um, well. 26:12.25 mikebledsoe That's ninety Nine point nine percent of the time. Yeah I mean I if you I and and the phrase that drives me nuts to someone someone goes. Oh that's just semantics and I go what. 26:25.68 Max Shank That's the only tools we have to argue you want a fist fight. That's all we got. 26:28.19 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah people you're like oh that's just semantics I'm like I'm like whoa whoa Whoa If you're somebody who goes that's just semantics and you are likely missing you. You actually don't know what's happening in the world like in you, you not can be able to communicate it. 26:42.45 Max Shank Well, you don't even know what's happening you don't even know what's happening within your own structure of your own ideas because the whole purpose is to get both parties to agree on what the definitions are so that you can have a distinct. Discourse or a precise discourse where everybody's like yes, this is what conflate means this is what collapse distinction means this is what love means you know like even even in something like marriage right? You know people are so nebulous with ah. What they're looking for in a relationship and then they're like I'm not getting what I want. It's like well did you specifically ask and did the other person agree to that and they're like well no, it's like embarrassing and I'm like oh well, um you you brought this on yourself like yeah, right is. 27:33.53 mikebledsoe Good luck, Good luck with life. Ah. 27:39.25 Max Shank It's so brutal I mean that's why like a lot of the first language was um, keeping tally of agreements like the most of the the um ancient texts are like. 27:45.70 mikebledsoe E. 27:54.60 Max Shank I don't know I'm going to show my ignorance here I don't exactly know. But I think it's like sumerian or something like that where it's like you know Bob smith that's not the name like but Bob smith owes you know Joe blow 3 cattles and a bushel of. You know acorns or something like that I don't know I'm not super hip with it. But that's basically what the first what the oldest written language we have is. 28:14.42 mikebledsoe Yeah, right I got I give you my daughter and exchange you get me 2 walks and fifty had a goats and yeah. 28:22.20 Max Shank Ah, right right? Fifty Silver so shekels or something like that. 28:32.66 mikebledsoe Ah, all right? Let's let's bring it back to the rhythm when we got off on a language tangent which is great because I actually think we'll we'll likely do that a lot in the future and I already wrote down the put language and all that for the for the next next episode let's get back to rhythm. Um I'll bring it back in. 28:43.35 Max Shank Yeah, should just make that our next 1 come come nice and prepared. Yeah, so. 28:52.47 mikebledsoe Little bit of a hard left. But I think it's necessary ah is ah 1 of my buddies he once we once got started talking about cycles. So we if we talk about um I think about seasons and cycles when I think about rhythm and. 28:56.00 Max Shank It's good time. 29:06.88 Max Shank Um, threat. 29:12.21 mikebledsoe Ah, because I think sometimes when I just think about rhythm by itself I think about a song.. There's a there's a beginning and an end and there's ah a cadence but with seasons of course it's circular and ah so it's it's predictable over and over and over again. But. I think we can all see the four seasons and ah so my buddy brought this to my attention. At 1 point he goes. Okay so you have your daily cycle and then you have your like if we look at real cycles in nature outside of ourselves We have the sun. The. 29:43.79 Max Shank Sun Moon. Yeah. 29:48.71 mikebledsoe Lunar cycles which is about 13 of them in a year um which basically the gregorian our calendar is totally fucked but um, it's not lined up with nature necessarily. Ah so it's close. 30:03.30 Max Shank It's pretty close with the solar cycle. What propose a better 1 mike ah I'll meet with you 3 moons from now. 30:07.40 mikebledsoe They have to make it Well we talk about that later, but ah, um, you could just go off the moon but the the yeah but ah, well, there's the Mayan calendar which is which follows the lunar cycles. So I know someone who runs their business Ho The lunar. 30:21.99 Max Shank The. 30:26.94 mikebledsoe Have the Mayan calendar but ah, she's far out there? Yeah yeah, yeah. 30:29.72 Max Shank It's pretty far out I like it I think you got to respect those cycles I think temp I think tempo um and cycles are are very similar I don't think tempo or Rhythm necessarily means a song i. 30:43.44 mikebledsoe Right. 30:45.82 Max Shank Have this time time is illusion but Tempo is real is this sort of thing I have going on in the back of my head because the whole concept of linear time is just based on our singular perception of it and our memory are. 30:48.96 mikebledsoe A b. 31:02.24 mikebledsoe Me. 31:04.46 Max Shank That's that's all it is memory and prediction. That's our only evidence that there is a such thing as time but the tempo of these different things like the sun and the moon and the seasons those are very concrete and they're circular. They're not. 31:21.89 mikebledsoe Right? Yeah, so we got we got the sun. We got the moon and then you you start expanding out into the universe and there's there's a cycle happening in our our well just in the cosmos in general and then you get down to you know I think it's easier to see in women. They have their. 31:22.55 Max Shank Ah, linear. What. 31:41.34 Max Shank And. 31:41.68 mikebledsoe Monthly cycle. That's happening internally and you know their training and their nutrition is going to shift based on you know if you're an athlete will will shift based on those things and and. 31:52.95 Max Shank They usually leave them out of studies. A lot of scientific studies. They cut women out of because they have the huge change during a monthly cycle which is fascinating. 31:56.41 mikebledsoe Yeah. 32:02.43 mikebledsoe I think men have I think it's a seventy 2 day cycle that is more subtle so it's over a longer period of time and it's not so drasstic. So just not as noticeable. 32:09.67 Max Shank Are. 32:16.85 Max Shank That explains why I've been so grumpy this I think I'm on I think I'm on my man period. 32:21.21 mikebledsoe I've had that happen I go ah, that's right? Ah so I look at these cycles and look at the seasons and and 1 of the things that really ah I really started appreciating my thirty s and I actually think living on the water. And san diego in a house that had a lot of ah, a lot of natural light helped me understand the seasons much better. 1 is being on the water allowed me to see the sun move across the sky I watched the sunset almost every day. 32:45.00 Max Shank And. 32:57.60 mikebledsoe And so it moved from from North to south and south to North ah across the west coast ah line and then it also was you know in the in the middle of the Summer. It's nine zero pm or little later setting and in the winter I mean it's four fifty and it's dark outside. 33:10.59 Max Shank Okay. That was a great house. 33:15.89 mikebledsoe And great house and I miss it. Ah and it was during that time that I really started honoring the seasons because prior to that I was. When I was living in memphis tennessee and I was running the gym like I was up at the gym at 6 a m no matter what time of year it was and I was under fluorescent lights. There was no I was killing all the natural cycles and and I wasn't done till nine zero p m and I'd get home and and everything was the same. 33:45.22 Max Shank Are. 33:52.36 mikebledsoe All the time and I was worn out and I didn't know why and then a few years into living in the San diego in this environment and I noticed that I worked less in the winter a lot less like probably half half the amount of time during the day in the winter I would I noticed that I would. Consume weed at night in the winter and and I would do movement at night and then when it started getting warm in the summer I would do my movement sober in the morning and so like I I now adopt that so in in the winter I start I train in the evenings and. 34:15.80 Max Shank Um. 34:20.48 Max Shank Um, her. 34:29.54 mikebledsoe Summer I trained the mornings so I just witnessed my personal preferences based on I really got sensitive I was practicing sensitivity to the season and I also noticed that and in the summertime there's more parties it. 34:29.63 Max Shank Interesting. 34:38.57 Max Shank And. 34:46.69 mikebledsoe Ah, people are celebrating um I work a lot more I stay up later I get less sleep I get like 7 hours of sleep on average in the summer and the winter I'm getting 8 and a half to nine and I go to less parties and I I read more in the winter. It's the winners all about reflection. 34:53.36 Max Shank A. 35:05.56 mikebledsoe About consuming. It's about resting and and more of just being and the spring hits and it's like oh you know I'm starting I'm almost tired of doing little and reflecting I've learned a lot I've reflected on what happened last year I'm ready to kick this year's ass and you spring in the action. And in the summer you're rolling and then the fall you know is the harvest and and by you know it's october now. So now. My experience is ah is I'm going oh man I'm so glad the parties are ending. So glad the sun's going down early because. 35:39.14 Max Shank Simply. 35:42.79 mikebledsoe I'm really feeling the desire to read and reflect and and get more sleep right now and so having that sensitivity to the seasons has really allowed me to ah just in all areas of my life. You know we can look at business and then the winner is just as wait. 35:48.58 Max Shank Ah. 36:02.40 mikebledsoe I've got a lot more strategy going on. There's less less doing and in the summer it's you know you know? Um, um, there's a lot more execution happening and less strategy. So it's um, it's welcome and it's enjoyable and it keeps me interested in life. 36:12.35 Max Shank And. 36:19.55 mikebledsoe Having those seasons. 36:21.69 Max Shank There's some wisdom there too and I see wisdom as knowing yourself and acting accordingly and it sounds like you are really honoring your natural tendencies rather than fighting your natural tendencies because. Whether it's a macro cycle like ah the periods in your life where we're going to be at different places right? I mean I'm um, I'm in a pretty different place now at 34 than I was at 21 right? I'm in a different kind of position and different situation. 36:52.10 mikebledsoe A. 36:58.52 Max Shank And even throughout the day. Everybody's going to have a different rhythm to when they're feeling more energized when they're um, more likely to do a certain type of work I mean I've fought it for a long time because I. Want to be on a Circadian rhythm but actually I do my most interesting creative work at night when it's quiet and you know I would I love ah the idea of going to bed at 8 o'clock and waking up at four o'clock and when I do that. 37:21.69 mikebledsoe E. 37:32.90 mikebledsoe They have. 37:36.64 Max Shank Get even less done. It's it's just way worse. So ah, you know I'm good I always turn the screens off at 8 o'clock but I don't necessarily go to bed around that time and that makes a huge difference. So anyway back to what I said about. 37:45.42 mikebledsoe Yeah I think I mean for me the way I The the way hit me for that is I I just I turn my screens off when the sun goes down so it's like instead of it instead of it being at a specific time I go Oh it's getting. 37:59.56 Max Shank That's even better. Yeah. 38:05.21 mikebledsoe Dark I try to live in homes where it's natural light during the day and I'm not using any artificial light. So when the sun goes down it becomes obvious. 38:07.92 Max Shank Um, yeah. 38:13.30 Max Shank Well and it's that built in rest from those things right? I mean what is it even god rested once a week even god rested on Sundays or something like that and to use ah a fitness analogy. Um, you can't you can't sprint. 38:21.37 mikebledsoe A. 38:32.91 Max Shank All out all the time. All you're going to do is make the result worse and start running a lot slower. So if you ride the waves you're going to get a lot more out of it and you're going to expend way less energy doing it. You know if like. I'll use jumping as an example, if I had you jump a Hundred times by the hundredth jump if you did it all in a row. It would be horrible looking jumping a Hundred times really high. But if I had jump 3 times every minute. Like you could probably do thirty minutes of jumping and be a little better and even 1 step ahead of that if I had to do 3 jumps every minute for ten minutes three times a day then it's going to be even better than that. So this whole idea of trying to grind through. Rather than draw some boundaries and set yourself up so you can ride that momentum I mean look the reality is like you don't even have to do that many things to be wildly. Successful. But you can do it the the hard way or you can do it the easy way. And if you respect those rhythms and respect your nature It's so much easier, but that does require that ability to see the big picture which is the visionary mode and then also get into the the craftsmanship mode. 40:03.87 mikebledsoe Yeah, there's a word you use that I find to be very important that is boundaries and most people have very poor boundaries. You're good. You're good. You're good at the boundaries I'm a lot better. 40:09.52 Max Shank I Am That's my best skill I got the fastest know in the west I'm good. Yeah some people call that unfriendly. 40:22.52 mikebledsoe Ah, max du an asshole. Ah yeah I've had people in my life. You know they'll they'll be like if he doesn't want to do it. He's not going to do it or if I do want to do something I'm going to do it. 40:26.50 Max Shank I Just I just love myself. That's all. 40:36.70 Max Shank Right. 40:40.77 mikebledsoe It's It's more about like negotiate like if I'm know whoever I'm dating so turns into a negotiation about how it's going to happen versus if it's going to happen or whatever it is or not going to happen. Yeah, so. 40:49.80 Max Shank If you can't say no, it's not negotiation. Can't walk away. It's no negotiation at all. 40:58.85 mikebledsoe Yeah, but I think the boundaries conversation. You know I see there's internal boundaries and external boundaries and people are constantly crossing their internal boundaries. There. You know they go Oh I'm going to turn off my screens when the sun goes down or or whatever it is and then they don't do it or I'm going to stop. You know, binge watching television and cracking a beer when I get off work and they just cross that boundary and over and over again. They end up hating themselves for it usually projecting that anger on to you know their job or a relationship or yeah to kick the dog or whatever it is and. 41:20.73 Max Shank The. 41:30.99 Max Shank Take the dog right. 41:37.84 mikebledsoe So There's like the the setting and the maintaining of boundaries is really really Important. Ah for for growth and the way I look at it is if we study archetypes if we look at like masculine archetypes the King sets the boundaries. The King has a kingdom. And says these are the edges of my kingdom. This is what I will and will not do and this is these are the rules that we live by in my kingdom but the warrior their job is to maintain those boundaries and so what I see a lot of a lot of men who end up in this like really flowy place is they have no boundaries. 41:59.26 Max Shank The. 42:06.10 Max Shank Is. 42:15.17 Max Shank Oh. 42:16.66 mikebledsoe Because they're there even if they want to have boundaries their warrior is so weak that they they just fold to their internal boundaries all the time and so there's a lot of guys running around acting tough who have zero warrior energy being directed at. 42:23.67 Max Shank And. 42:36.24 mikebledsoe Ah, maintaining boundaries and so ah and if you can't maintain your internal boundaries. You're not going to maintain healthy external boundaries and a lot of people on the external boundary side people. They don't um. 42:36.94 Max Shank Ah. 42:55.35 mikebledsoe First off, most people don't communicate their boundaries as boundaries. They may communicate it but they don't use the word boundaries I find that if I use the word boundary with somebody it catches their attention they go. Oh he's being serious because it's just not a common word and ah so external boundaries usually aren't communicated. 42:57.31 Max Shank Um, right right? Yeah, ah. 43:15.70 mikebledsoe And again someone else crosses our external boundary. What happens if you cross my external boundary and I didn't communicate it to you I usually get angry. You know people get angry. They're like but the fuck and you're going what happened I don't know um and so ah. 43:24.91 Max Shank Lash out and right off. 43:33.37 mikebledsoe Learning to communicate boundaries effectively All the time will create a lot of respect from other people and it keeps things really really clean and if something if something does need to shift in a relationship and you've been communicating the boundary as being broken over and over and over again. 43:41.73 Max Shank Oh. 43:52.36 mikebledsoe And it's an easier thing to to satisfy to to move away from it's like oh we have Ah, we've documented that this boundary's been crossed a dozen times like you're not honoring my boundariary. So yeah, we're gonna We're gonna shift this relationship. 43:58.12 Max Shank Right. 44:06.80 Max Shank Well and you draw your own line of what you're going to tolerate or not and it's It's fine to compromise as long as you know what? you're getting for what you're giving. Um I think I think fasting is really good for drawing those boundaries. 44:16.22 mikebledsoe Now. Yeah. 44:24.55 Max Shank I mean I don't want to label myself. Um, but I usually don't have 1 of something I have like zero of something or I have lots of that something and I think fasting is really good for drawing. 44:37.27 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah. 44:44.12 Max Shank That critical boundary of your intake and I made a little video about it and I talked about how the main benefit of fasting to me is going from um, compulsive to conscious behavior and that's. 44:59.49 mikebledsoe E. 45:03.69 Max Shank Really at the core of what we're talking about and when I was on this other show I got asked like what's the way to get rich and I said deferred gratification and they said anything else I'm like not really like if you're able to defer gratification until later and you provide something. Valuable. It'll it'll eventually work out if you can see the big picture and stay focused then the other stuff will sort of happen organically I think and look you can go. We can go into way more detail as far as how to get rich and stay rich which would maybe be another. Good topic for a show because we have similar but different similar similar and different strategies on that. Um. 45:41.79 mikebledsoe Oh yeah, like that 1 45:48.37 mikebledsoe Well I've ah ah we we come from. We have different personalities when it comes to our approaches to business and wealth building but we also have agreement on a lot of Concepts so it'd be. It'd be interesting. 45:56.90 Max Shank Totally right. Right? Yeah, it flows so easy. 46:07.20 mikebledsoe I Mean that's why we have these conversations because we we've come to. We've come to similar conclusions from different points of view all right. We'll do the get rich stay rich. 46:18.58 Max Shank That's that's what we like about other people too. We like that they're different but similar right? Um I think for tying this rhythm thing back into business I think the value of. 46:21.24 mikebledsoe Yeah. 46:35.58 Max Shank Putting together a campaign is quite valuable and having it be. You know I'm not just like doing x y and z all day every day there's the visionary comes up with this plan and then we have this. Execution that lies on a bit of ah, a tempo or a cycle. So like let's say you and I were going to start a new business and we didn't set any boundaries for when we're going to, um, you know do the brain. Swarming I call it I don't I don't call it brainstorming I call it brain swarming like it's everything all these different things kind of coming together and moving as a unified unit. But if we don't have like a stop for that phase. And think it's easy to imagine that you and I would just stay in Dreamland brainswarming forever and be like oh and what if we did this and what if we did that and if you have this sort of tempo. For that campaign where it's like first we're going to do this and then we're going to build and then we're going to delegate and then we're going to build and then this is going to be our follow up tempo and touch points and that's the same thing with coaching is how often am I going to touch base. How often am I going to reach out to you. What's our. 47:57.70 mikebledsoe Oh. 48:01.79 Max Shank But's our tempo for it and for me weekly is really good. For example in my experience. That's the best of course if you have someone who can check in with you every single day. That's probably going to give you an even better result. Something like coaching hey you know how to go Yesterday. What's the plan today boom boom boom and you kind of work through it and clearly that there's a benefit to that. Otherwise no 1 would need a coach but the reality is ah. 48:27.78 mikebledsoe E. 48:39.25 Max Shank Ah, Coach often gets you to do something. You know you should. 48:40.62 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah, I also see the the necessity for creating our own you know and I think about this I think about creating your own structure because that creating that rhythm that tempo is a structure. Um and is. 48:50.59 Max Shank So. 48:57.64 mikebledsoe I Think there's also why coaching is is becoming really important right now is because more and more as as the world decentralizes people are becoming more and more responsible for their own schedule and you know we saw this with Covid people started working from home and there was. 49:09.16 Max Shank Um, now that's tough. 49:17.50 mikebledsoe Ah, go oh wow people. Ah first I was like people probably won't work that much and then I start hearing reports that people are working way more because there's no boundary set up for them like oh you show up to work at this time and then you leave work and so they were just like working all the time at home like whoa and so um. 49:22.17 Max Shank M. 49:31.56 Max Shank Well. 49:37.50 mikebledsoe Yeah, there's a lot of factors there. But as the Covid just sped things up. They were already there which is the world is decentralizing more people are going to work from home. There's gonna be more freelancers less employees and like more contractors and if you're a freelancer. 49:38.78 Max Shank What and the. 49:49.90 Max Shank The and. 49:55.76 mikebledsoe 1 of the beauties of being a freelancer is you have control of your own schedule and that is a new thing for people. 50:07.14 Max Shank I've always wanted that that was like the really since I was a young kid that was the only thing I wanted is the freedom to live on my own schedule. You know I felt like something was taken away from me as soon as I had to start going to school I'm like this is awful I don't want to do this I Want to go out and play with the stick. 50:13.64 mikebledsoe A. 50:24.80 Max Shank But and I think kind of to borrow your term again. Um, collapsed distinction with the work and home life I think that's 1 of the um. 50:41.47 Max Shank Challenges or opportunities for entrepreneurs I've certainly noticed that myself I mean the reality is I I did work tons and tons of hours getting to where I'm at now and that number has significantly decreased as I've gained more skill and drawn better boundaries. But if you. Are suddenly thrown into this scenario where the place you work is the same place that you eat and the same place that you also have a computer where you can see anything anytime you will get that collapsed distinction. Where now everything is just always happening right here at the console I'm working and then I'm in the kitchen eating cookies and then there are boobies on the screen and you're just kind of like this everything everything all at once where you don't have that clear. 51:37.83 mikebledsoe Yeah work. 51:38.78 Max Shank Distinction of when it's work time and when it's relaxed time and I think that is a very just as valuable. Maybe as being able to consciously rather than compulsively project your thinking into the future project your thinking into the past. 51:45.73 mikebledsoe Yeah. 51:58.38 Max Shank And also bring yourself directly into the here and now and just go for a walk and let your ah conscious mind be alleviated of all of these you know, urgencies and emergencies and problems and all of these labels. We attach to. 52:16.10 mikebledsoe Yeah now. Yeah. 52:18.18 Max Shank Things trying to ask you for your time but you still have the power to draw that boundary and say no. But if you don't if you don't It's game over like people will infringe on your boundaries and they will respond to. However, you train them to respond. 52:35.50 mikebledsoe E. 52:37.58 Max Shank Basically um, which is kind of weird I don't mean that in a derogatory way at all. But you know if someone complains to you and then you respond to them favorably favorably. You're in inviting them to do that more if someone says hey can you can you stay. You know 3 hours late or come in and work on Sunday and you just always say yes, well, they're just going to always ask you to come work on sunday. 53:01.77 mikebledsoe Yeah I like the thing about it as you're a character in a movie and or if you've ever studied you know fiction. You know you basically create a character and then the character. Based on their characters how they respond throughout the story or the movies like oh that was it would be weird that'd be at a character of this character if james bond you know, walked away from you know a hot woman. It would be it would be at a character like no james bond like. 53:21.61 Max Shank Ah. 53:31.11 Max Shank That would be out of character right. 53:36.70 mikebledsoe He orders a martini. He chats her up at the bar. Ah, and so we are all characters in a movie and we have this script playing all the time and. 53:45.72 Max Shank God am I the villain or the hero I'm not even sure if I become a villain I would be a hell of a good Ark though. 53:54.64 mikebledsoe And and ah, what ends up happening is people are casting us as characters in their movie and ah if you start making 1 of these changes. For instance, you go you know what? I'm going to shift my character I'm going to develop my character. By creating boundaries that I communicate now it can be jarring for other people because now they have this expectation of the character in which they perceive you to be and now you you aren't that and people tend to dislike change. So Now you're throwing a wrench. 54:20.61 Max Shank Um, then again. 54:34.33 mikebledsoe And their their consciousness and they go but but but and a lot of times it comes out as Anger or disappointment or whatever it is and so for me I I really make sure that my first impression with people is you know it's an anchor experience. They're now this. Moment in time. How they how they're interacting with me now is how they're gonna end up treating me in the future because changing that over time can be difficult so I'm very good at holding the boundaries from from the very beginning. They know my boundaries. They're not gonna think anything of it. They're not gonna be mad about it. The people are gonna get mad at. 55:06.60 Max Shank Like. 55:13.78 mikebledsoe My new boundaries are the people who I've already got very established relationships with and now I'm creating something new. 55:16.49 Max Shank Well, it's like momentum. Well it's physics right? If you have momentum in a certain way and people expect that certain thing if you change there's going to be a new acceleration or a Jolt and a jerk and that's going to be really uncomfortable. 55:30.96 mikebledsoe Yeah, yeah, so yeah, and summary for that is it I think a lot of people are going to get out of this is to be more conscious of their internal boundaries external boundaries notice. 55:34.84 Max Shank No. 55:49.60 mikebledsoe The rhythms that that exist in the world and with themselves and being able to honor that and making those changes to honor your own rhythms and the rhythms of the universe are going to make your life a lot better but in the short term making those changes and and experiencing that. Change in acceleration can be a little jarring and just realizing that hey this short term difficulty and making these ah changes for me and and others will be worth it. Long term because once you get them set and you're rolling life. Gets a lot better. 56:28.43 Max Shank I Think it's also yeah I would agree with what you said completely I would also suggest people start timestamping their start and stop times when they're working on stuff and notice for themselves when they're doing their best work. 56:38.56 mikebledsoe Yeah. 56:44.20 mikebledsoe E. 56:46.55 Max Shank And when things start to deteriorate and you know the whole point of what we're doing really is to liberate people from the false realities that have been programmed into them from a huge variety of sources and it's natural to want to get. Ah, greater effect for less effort. There's nothing more natural than that we want. We want to be as efficient as we possibly can. So if you do respect those boundaries if you do draw those boundaries if you do um draw a clearer. 57:13.90 mikebledsoe Me here. 57:22.77 Max Shank Distinction rather than a collapse distinction between work rest and play. You're going to get a way way better result with way less effort I mean who would not want to spend less time working but get better results like what? what seems more obvious than that. 57:41.56 mikebledsoe Yep. 57:42.70 Max Shank But if you don't draw those boundaries. It's basically impossible and you know you can't worry I mean this is easier said than done right? because we're the most social emotional creatures ever. You can't worry what it's going to do for someone else like breaking your own boundaries to make someone else feel better. Is not doing them a favor. It's just willingly participating in your own energy vampireism essentially and I really like the the lore around vampires because it perfectly describes energy vampires too. So with. 58:16.42 mikebledsoe Oh. 58:20.20 Max Shank Real vampire I was going to say real vam I mean maybe there are who knows with real vampires or the story. They can't come in your house and let see you invite them in with energy vampires. It's exactly the same thing you don't have to let anyone suck any of your energy. Unless you deliberately and directly invite them in so it's very important to just realize how much power is in the word. No. 58:47.28 mikebledsoe Someone say it's the most powerful word there is. 58:52.71 Max Shank Um I would agree maybe maybe yes Also but yes and yes implies that no is an option. 58:59.29 mikebledsoe Yeah, can't have a yes without a no as a possibility I Want to mention in summary I Do want to mention 2 tools that I use that that you made me think of ah is I use a tool called Marduck which is ah. Have my entire business put in there. It's it's ah it's ah the most advanced task management system ever seen I'm go. Ah I'm a Beta user for it. My buddy designed it. We're gonna be rolling that out to my clients. But also if anyone wants to use this. Ah. This software that basically you put your entire business in it and then it tracks how long you're doing certain tasks and helps you focus I would say I've been using it for five months my productivity if I to guess 3 X I work less and get way more done. Um, and I enjoy my work so he he's figured out a way to gamify ah work. So you program it around your business and then it gamifies it and there's rewards and all sorts of stuff. Um, but what I do is with the marduck system when I start a task I hit play and it starts tracking my time. When I hit stop and when when I hit play it closes down all the other things that I need to do that Day. So I'm not getting distracted when I hit stop I Then it prompts me to put in what I did like like a little summary of what I completed and then the difficulty of. On on a number scale of how difficult that task was for me to complete and ah that helps me, um, check you know I'm consciously choosing to do a task and then I I complete it and then I do a check In. Um. 01:00:28.66 Max Shank Um, um, how can. 01:00:44.59 mikebledsoe And then so I use that tool in combination with another tool called Brain Dot fm. 01:00:46.44 Max Shank We should. We should get Marduk to sponsor this episode that was amazing. 01:00:50.94 mikebledsoe Oh yeah, thanks. Ah yeah, I'm gonna be slinging some marduck well like I said up. Um I'm giving it to all my clients starting at 2022 ah but anyone even if you're not a client if you want to get access to it. You just dm me on the instagrams. 01:01:00.98 Max Shank Cool. 01:01:10.66 mikebledsoe And ah, brain fm is the other 1 which is a binaural audio program that basically helps your brain it basically tunes your your brain to the frequency of focus while you're getting stuff done and what I like about brain fm is. There's 30 sixty and ninety minute. Ah. Ah, amount of time you can put on there and so the music just plays helping you focus? Um, and then after thirty sixty or ninety minutes however you program it it stops and that's what I know to take a break and so I noticed that I can do two ninety minute sprints if if I'm working before noon. 01:01:40.48 Max Shank Smart. 01:01:47.22 Max Shank Who. 01:01:49.70 mikebledsoe So I'll do ah a ninety minute sprint and then I'll go make myself some breakfast take a thirty minute break go for a walk come back. Do another ninety minute sprint in the afternoons I like to do sixty minute I can do 1 or 2 sixty minute sprints and then I'm done I'm done for the day and so ah, that's that's been a really great. Those are great tools that have. Help me raise my awareness around what I'm doing how I'm doing it creating boundaries. ah so I'm ah I'm a big fan of I like to say I have very little willpower but I'm hyper ah hyperactive as 1 yeah, but I'm um. 01:02:20.15 Max Shank Active. 01:02:25.90 mikebledsoe Hyper vigilant around setting up structures and systems to kind of basically I bump into things I go Oh yeah, I'm so it's a stop right now. Otherwise I just keep going. Oh yeah, thank you, Thank you. 01:02:37.74 Max Shank That's wisdom. That's knowing yourself and acting accordingly. That's really smart. That's very wise. Yeah, you bet. 01:02:45.68 mikebledsoe Um, yeah, anything else you want to mention in summary for the show. 01:02:49.00 Max Shank No love you. Love you guys. Thanks for listening draw good boundaries and don't fight the flow ride the wave. 01:02:59.60 mikebledsoe Dope you can find max at ma shk dot com and everything ma shk and then find me at ah mike underscore Bloodso on Instagram and the strongcoach dot com on the interwebs. Thanks y ' all. 01:03:04.90 Max Shank That's it.

On this episode, Michael Meade responds to elements of nihilism when it comes to the future of human life on earth and to pretentious claims of individual freedom that are not based in an awakening of individual souls. Meade uses an ancient Mayan story to make a defense of the gift of life that makes each soul born both unique and gifted and aimed at something meaningful.   “False demands for freedom and liberty are a substitute for genuinely seeking a unity of self intended to be found within. The real courage to seek freedom is connected to the sense that something is trying to be revealed in each soul born, in each child going to school and in each of us trying to awaken.   This deeper education of the soul has always been the root of the effort of learning; the attempt to bring each girl, each boy to the point of awakening to their inner nature and the gifts they were given at birth. That is the universal birthright and the deeper root of freedom; not simply the freedom from, but the freedom to be part of creation, to be part of a genuine awakening, rather than a faux revolution.”   Thank you for listening to and supporting this podcast.  You can further support this podcast by becoming a member of Living Myth Premium.  Members have access to the full archives of over 355 episodes, receive a 30% discount on all online events, courses and products and receive 3 bonus episodes each month.    Learn more and join this community of listeners at patreon.com/livingmyth.   As always, we appreciate you leaving a review on iTunes and sharing it with your friends.
