S1E32 - The Least You Can Do

Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen

Too often, we seek to get by doing the least we can do. And, after a while, the least we can do becomes a way of life for many of us.  The problem is that we then work and live well below our ability and level of performance possible.  And this habit or way of living begins to take over our life. Imagine an Olympic athlete whose attitude is to do the least they can do in their training as they prepare for the Olympics. It would be foolish to assume you could excel with that mindset.  World class athletes instead do the most they can do to reach their goals. For example, many people dream of becoming wealthy without having to put forth any effort. Today's episode begins with a discussion of why playing the lottery seems tempting but is an unwise investment. McKay points out that the real lottery winners are the IRS and state governments, which take in almost half of the winnings, while those who buy the tickets lose week after week and would be better off putting that money into savings instead. He argues that we've developed a habit of wanting to do the least possible to earn money but that this attitude will catch up to us eventually, like a bank robber who makes one mistake and loses the money and their freedom. Instead, McKay encourages a change in attitude, leaving behind “the least possible” and instead developing a culture of excellence in ourselves, our families, and our work environments. Using examples of big-name companies, including Procter & Gamble and Disney, he demonstrates how the pursuit of excellence can have huge benefits, both in business and in our personal lives. The Finer Details of This Episode: -   Why do so many people play the lottery despite the odds being stacked against them? -   Federal and state governments are the big lottery winners -   The story of Alan Pace, who tried to get rich by doing the least possible (by robbing a bank) but wound up in jail after one simple mistake -   How to encourage your children to strive for excellence (featuring the story of creating spelling bee champs by encouraging teamwork) -   Scarcity mentality vs. abundance mentality in the workspace -   The pursuit of excellence as a business strategy -   Disney's development of The Lion King as an example of the pursuit of excellence in action    Quotes:   “Let's say I put $100 million inside a house somewhere in North America, somewhere in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Guatemala, etc. And then I gave you a key, and you had to pick the right house, you had one chance to pick the right house. Those are better odds than your winning the Mega Millions lottery.”   “I also think people enjoy the fantasy of it, they dream of what it would be like to have all of that money, right? And that's a little exciting and brings excitement to their day. But most of all, I think they get in the habit of chasing the least they can do to be wealthy.”   “If I were to ask you if you'd rather win the lottery or not, of course, you'd rather win the lottery, right? But here's a proven fact. When you have to work to build wealth, you build yourself, you build your life, you build your capabilities.”   “The least we can do becomes a way of life for many of us.”   “When you begin, even in small ways to invite excellence into your life, you will feel a spirit of self-worth and peace enter into your life. And that spirit will invite you to rise, to do things with the best part of you, instead of the least part of you.”   “Excellence is not an act but a habit.” “When you stop doing the least you can do and do your best, it brings you back to who you can and should be.  It restores you, your hope and your future.  Excellence is a strategy for being happy.”   “Find one way each day to be excellent, and here's what you'll find - you'll find the real you.”   Show Links:  ...

In this packed episode, Jeannette is interviewed by Ellie McKay of the On a Mission podcast. Jeannette shares details of her early life, education and more. Explaining how despite getting a first from Leeds University she still suffered from imposter syndrome. She explains how she turned that, and class prejudice, on their head, and used them to drive her forward. Jeannette also talks about working at a high level in a male-dominated environment and how mentors helped her to make step changes in her career. She explains why she left the corporate world to work with her other half, Chris. Including, how they avoid friction, divide up the workload and maintain a good work/life balance. Jeannette and Ellie also discuss where the biggest business opportunities are likely to be over the coming decade.   KEY TAKEAWAYS When Jeanette started work, regional and class prejudices were still prevalent. As was sexism. Imposter syndrome is something most of us suffer from. In the podcast, Jeannette explains how she was able to largely overcome it. Being yourself is important, trying to play a role is exhausting and pointless because you always get found out. Be positive, if in your mind you are expecting problems you are almost setting yourself up for that to be the case. You don´t need to be an alpha female to be able to secure senior roles SAS software and those businesses that simplify and streamline tasks and processes are doing especially well. Demand for flexible office space is growing as people tweak the way they work remotely. Each time Jeannette has had a mentor it has enabled her to make a step-change in her career. Dividing the workload clearly and each person playing to their strengths makes it much easier to run a business with your life partner. Good communication enables you to solve anything. Believe in yourself, everything starts with the internal you.   BEST MOMENTS ‘If you walk into a room thinking there will be a problem, there probably will be. ´ ‘How I start my day is really important. I am fiercely protective of my first hour of the day.' ‘I genuinely have found something that I love…with podcasts it was an unexpected love.'   This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life.

How do you find your true worth? Our self worth is determined not by how much we get, but how much we give.  When you see your noble responsibility to use your gifts for good, you find your worth. In this week's episode, McKay delves into the subject of noblesse oblige, explaining the noble responsibility we have of helping others by giving, and getting inspired to live happy lives along the way.   He starts off with the story of Chhiring Dorje who, in spite of being in danger himself, carried out the most daring rescue on the deadly K2 mountain. McKay also talks about finding inspiration by giving, explains the law of giving, and encourages us to practice the Five-Minute Favor to incorporate a lifestyle of giving into our lives. He finishes off by advising us to accept the noble responsibility of sharing our strengths and gifts with others - not to get something in return, but to live fulfilled and enriched lives.   The Finer Details of This Episode:   -   The most daring rescue in climbing history- Chhiring Dorje Sherpa's story -   Finding inspiration by giving -   Stories of those who gave -   The law of giving -   Conditioning yourself to a lifestyle of giving -   The Five Minute Favor -   The gift of La Liberté éclairant -   Getting from giving -   How to become a genuine giver -   The noblesse oblige concept   Quotes:   “When we turn from getting to giving, we find strength and inspiration we didn't know we had before.”   “But when we forget ourselves and focus on helping others in their climb or goals or efforts, we get inspired. We also find our true capability.”   “Perhaps there should be a different kind of Forbes list— a list of people who give.”   “In giving, you find your worth.”   “The law of giving is a law or principle with a promise that if you become a person who focuses primarily on giving, you will find a greater return than might otherwise be possible.”   “Every time you find five minutes, think about how and to whom you can give. It's amazing how rich your life will become if you take all the extra five minutes in your day to give.”   “Self-worth is perfectly correlated with two important outcomes —happiness and freedom from stress.”   “Giving creates reciprocity. Giving creates influence.”   “Your Maker and life and circumstances have given to you certain endowments, and the purpose of these gifts is to be an ongoing blessing to those around you.”   “We have all been given gifts, and some are different than others, but we all have them. And they don't need to be something magnificent - just often a simple talent.”   “Your talents are embedded in the nucleus of who you are. You are more gifted than you know, and these gifts were given to you because you have the unique characteristics and talent to, in turn, give these gifts to the world.”   Show Links:   https://www.audible.com/pd/Podcast/B08JJMDXHL (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

They discuss the search for treatments and a cure for PSC.   "We're interested in the gut microbiome, of course, because we know there's a link between inflammatory bowel disease and primary sclerosing cholangitis," says Dr. O'Hara. "The multitude of microorganisms in the gut certainly influence many different diseases. There's increasing evidence that it may influence PSC, as well. So, our link would be what's happening in the gut...How does it actually affect the biliary epithelial cell function in this disease?"

What goal are you pursuing in your life? Perhaps it's to be healthier, or to save a relationship, or maybe it's to break long standing bad habits. It might be to succeed in business, academics, or your spiritual life. Whatever it is, in this week's episode, McKay gives insight into the most effective way to achieve your goal, and that's by doing small, consistent actions over time. He kicks off by narrating the story of a 544 BC Chinese Grandmaster credited with being the author of the famous book The Art of War, which has been used by modern day leaders up to this day. McKay then cites his favorite quote from the book, “Plan for what is difficult while it is easy, and do what is great, while it is small”, and goes on to reveal how a small and quick apology early on can prevent a potentially large disagreement later. He also shares examples of how doing something small may not seem urgent today, but could lead to something great in the future or even prevent a disaster, and emphasizes the need for consistency in doing the small things for they have a cumulative effect and become more powerful. In essence, today, McKay reveals why the “go big or go home” mentality may not be the most effective, and in doing so, reminds us that what is simple to do is also simple not to do, so we need to be apt to take small, consistent actions to reach our goals. The Finer Details of This Episode: ·  Stories and examples of the effects of doing or not something great when it's still small. ·  The law of attraction. ·  How doing something small led to Stanford University. ·  The fallacy of the “go big or go home” mentality. ·  The principle of action-oriented momentum. ·  How small things lead to great outcomes. ·  Being apt to act. Quotes “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.” “Plan for what is difficult while it is easy, and do what is great while it is small.” “Small things done consistently alter the trajectory of your life.” “It's easy to do something today rather than trying to make up lost ground tomorrow.” “Small is easy, small is fast, small doesn't take much time, and small is doable.” “Small choices are at the root of almost every result in life.” “A small thing that will lead to something great comes about just by doing the next right thing.” “While small may not be sexy, small moves are successful and sustainable.” “Small has a sister and her name is simple.” Show Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

Your Perfectly Imperfect Life “We all have perfect moments in life, and it's exceptionally healthy to seek to be our best in these moments.” In this week's episode, McKay brings the truth of this quote to vivid life by opening our eyes to the illusion of perfection and spurring us on to seek optimalism and excellence instead. He begins by sharing the story of Yogi Berra, and then highlights the attractiveness about the world's imperfection and points out that if the world were perfect, it would be less attractive. McKay assures us that it's okay to allow ourselves to be imperfect and show our imperfections, and goes on to elucidate the effects of living with the unrealistic need for perfection. He also shares tools on how to deal with unfair criticism from others and practice forgiveness, and shows us that there is great benefit in failure and that we need to worry a lot less about what other people think about us. Overall, McKay encourages us to leave behind the title of perfectionist, adopt the title of optimalist, and end the unhealthy anxiety of being perfect. The Finer Details of This Episode: ·   Stories of perfection, forgiveness, and failure ·   The problem with the constant pursuit of perfection. ·   How to deal with unfair criticism from others. ·   Carol Dweck's research about having a growth mindset. ·   How to get past mistakes and deal productively with the emotion. ·   The bliss in apologizing, admitting mistakes, committing to doing better, and approaching life humbly. ·   The definition of an optimalist and an encouragement to be one. ·   Good grace. Quotes “If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be.” “We seem to aspire to be perfect, but in the doing so we often struggle with the anxiety it creates” “We're all flawed in one way or another.” “Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing.” “You can apply your energy in one of two directions, defending or learning, because the truth is, nothing is perfect” “How do you get better at forgiving? Remember the many times in life you've needed forgiveness.” “Just like a muscle is built back stronger after it's broken down through exercise, so we grow by attempting something and failing.” “Neurologically, our brains become more resilient to whatever failures and discomfort we experience regularly.” “It takes a great deal of character and strength to apologize quickly, but it also builds character when we apologize quickly.” “When we seek to redirect and right our wrongs immediately, we tend to build relationships no matter how big our mistakes.” “Time spent pursuing flawlessness is time squandered.” “No matter how slow I go, I'm still lapping everyone on the couch.” “Grace is an enabling power that will help you find those perfect moments in life.” Show Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

Click for full show notes, exercises, and parenting scripts from this episode When our middle or high schoolers are driving us up the wall, we often attribute their wacky behavior to hormones. They weren't this crazy when they were younger, and we pray they won't be this unpredictable as adults, so we assume it must be those teenage chemicals in their brains making them act up. It's just a biological process, and there's nothing we can do...right?But attributing all of our teens' behavior to hormones can bring up some complicated questions for parents. Like, with everything going on in her brain already, would it be wise to put my daughter on birth control? Or, is it normal, hormonal, behavior that keeps my teenager out late, causes him to drive like a maniac? What if there are other factors to consider when pondering these questions that can make things a little clearer for parents?To find out, we're talking to Dr. Sarah McKay, renowned neuroscientist, to find out what role hormones really play in teen's development...and what popular ideas are actually misconceptions! Dr. McKay is an Oxford educated doctor with years of experience researching brian science. Finding herself intrigued by outdated or misconstrued ideas about the female mind, she decided to write The Women's Brain Book, a comprehensive look at the development of women's neural pathways.  In this week's episode, Dr. McKay's demystifying the role of hormones during puberty–and explaining why we give them too much weight.

Thanks for tuning in to the Armor Men's Health Hour Podcast today, where we bring you the latest and greatest in medical and urology care and the best urology humor out there.In this segment,  Dr. Mistry and Donna Lee are joined by gastroenterologist Dr. Crystal Bowden-McKay of Capitol Gastro for a discussion about colon cancer risk and colonoscopies. While no one loves completing the bowel prep involved in getting a colonoscopy, it remains the best diagnostic and therapeutic tool for finding and removing colon polyps. This procedure also allows for longer intervals between screenings--so get your colonoscopy done and you might not need another one for several years! While colon cancer is often difficult to detect without screenings, there are some warning signs you should never ignore: blood in the stool, whether dark brown and tar like or bright red, should always be cause for concern. So when should you have your first colonoscopy? For most patients with an average risk, 50 is the age when you should schedule your first colonoscopy. If you're an African American with an average risk, you should start slightly sooner at 45. If you have a family history of colon cancer or advanced adenomas, meaning one first degree relative or two second degree relatives with these conditions, you should consult with your GI doctor who will likely recommend starting at 40. Other risk factors that make earlier screening necessary include having inflammatory bowel disease or a genetic predisposition to developing colon cancer. While not the most pleasant of experiences, colonoscopies are lifesaving health screenings, so call your GI today and make sure you're on schedule!You can contact Dr. Bowden-McKay at (512) 963-6022 and capitolgastro.com.This episode was previously aired on 2.6.21.

Loss of a loved one, sickness, financial hardship - all these and more have crushed and still crush people in the course of their lives. In this week's episode, McKay employs his trademark combination of information, experience, stories, and inspiration to encourage us to rise against the tide and decide to start something good this day regardless of the circumstances.  McKay breaks the ice by narrating how three-year-old Liz from a broken home changed her narrative. He goes on and stresses the importance of focusing on the positive possibilities and not the feelings of worry and anxiety in times of crisis.  He points out that bad things will always happen and encourages us to have the attitude and mentality of a victor regardless.  McKay further elaborates ways of escaping the victim mentality and the misery that comes with it, encourages us to stay true to ourselves in hard times and not to follow the herd, and also touches on social media, highlighting how harmful it can be. He concludes by motivating us to be optimistic and invites us to take time to list how we could make this time the start of something good. All in all, McKay spurs us on to strip off the worries, concern, and confusion, and stay attuned to the infinite possibilities that exist. The Finer Details of This Episode: ·  The story of Liz as a three-year old in a broken home. ·  The “What if” voice. ·  The difference in mindset between a victim and a victor. ·  An analogy between contrarian investing and remaining true to yourself. ·  Acting independent of the herd. ·  Anxiety as a thief of joy and positive change. ·  The effect of social media on our mental health. ·  Unsubscribing from negative thoughts of fear and worry. ·  The effects of anxiety. ·  Psychologist Andy Todd's experiment on anxiety. ·  Vietnam War Commander Jeremiah Denton's story. ·  The power of slowing down and taking pauses during speech. ·  The effects of, and how to put on, optimism. Quotes: “Those with a victim mentality seem to wallow in negativity and tend to force it upon others in an attempt to find company in their misery.” “Worrying won't stop the bad stuff from happening; it just keeps you from enjoying the good.”  “It's exactly during these anxiety-ridden times that we have a choice - to see ourselves as a victim or a victor.” “Someone with a victim mentality only sees the problems around them, and on the other hand, someone with a victor mentality will look within themselves to find solutions and carry on.” “You are meant to be a force for good even in confusing times.” “Action stops confusion.” “It's better to lose an eye than to let it infect the whole body. The same goes for some social media.” “Making this day the start of something good is an everyday mindset.” “You are happier when you're hopeful.” “Sometimes you have to get out of the way of yourself so that you can be yourself.” “You can always unfollow and unsubscribe from your negative thoughts and from fear and worry.” “To start something good doesn't mean that you have to do something new.” “Optimism is healthy, attractive, and contagious.” Show Links: https://www.mckaychristensen.org/ (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremiah_Denton (Vietnam War Commander Jeremiah Denton)

In this episode, Jeannette talks to Anna McKay who went from being a globally recognised intellectual property lawyer to developing and launching the Zeez Sleep Pebble and Sleep Pad with Steve Walpole. These unobtrusive under the pillow devices use brainwave patterns to promote good sleep, right through the night.    Anna explains why she stepped away from the highly enjoyable but stressful work she was doing to develop this sleep product. From childhood, she has been a chronic insomniac. So, she knows from personal experience that their device works. She explains what the product is and how it works. As well as sharing her entrepreneurial journey and some of the lessons she and Steve have learned while launching and developing their product. They also discuss the approach Anna and Steve are planning to use to take the next step. KEY TAKEAWAYS   The Zeez devices work by prompting the brain of the user to copy the neural patterns of a sound sleeper. Before using the device, only 38% of testers fell asleep within 15 minutes. After using the Zeez Sleep Pebble, that rose to 81%. 70% of testers woke during the night at least 3 times a week. While using the device only 35% did so. For the device to work fully users need to practice good sleep hygiene. For example, darkening the room properly.  In the podcast, Ana goes through several good sleep hygiene habits. Explaining the science behind why they work and are necessary. Sunshine is an important component of sleep hygiene. It plays a role in triggering serotonin. What you eat at breakfast has an impact on whether you can stay asleep. Why that is explained in the podcast. Parents often have to wake for their children. But the quality of their sleep can still be greatly improved. Don't be afraid to put yourself out there. Don´t inadvertently put barriers in your way when developing a product. It is not a perfect process. Be authentic.   BEST MOMENTS ‘(Our device) is quantitively different from other (sleep) devices that work on the brain. ´ ‘Our lifestyle has taken us away from the natural pattern of daylight.' ‘I was good at relaxing, but I couldn't sleep.'   This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

She was a chronic insomniac. Five hours of sleep was exceptional, and Anna often didn't sleep for several nights in a row. Acupuncture, massage, Shiatsu, and other therapies helped her to cope, but made little impact on her sleep. She loved her work – it was interesting, demanding, and very high energy: and that kept her awake, however, it was a dangerous lifestyle.  One day, a minor workplace irritation made her realise that she didn't want to be a partner in a law firm any longer. She began to work with inventors and gained more control over her life. This change enabled her to address her sleep differently. It became a mission.   Eventually, she set up Zeez Sleep with electronics engineer Steve Walpole. Steve and her measured brainwaves, tested and learnt how to encourage our brains to sleep well. They developed, patented, and now sell the Zeez Sleep Pebble. An under the pillow device which mimics the brain activities of relaxation and deep sleep to prompt poor sleepers to adopt a pattern of good sleep. It is a ground-breaking device, with the potential to change the way we sleep and transform lives. The kind of corporate culture in which she worked as a young lawyer, with all-night meetings fuelled by coffee and relaxation predicated on alcohol is unsatisfying and unproductive, but understandable if it seems as if there is no other way. Supporting good sleep is a way to get back balance and change our culture.

He discusses the effect of self-centeredness and the rewards that come with showing compassion, goes on to encourage us all to lose the transactional thinking and adopt the views of others, and to become a better listener as well.

Compassionate healthcare workers have less job burnout.”   “Can you see that when you give your heart to other people, you become different?”   “Something happens to your heart when you really listen.”   “In any human relationship, we are constantly offering ourselves, our selfish thoughts, our wants, our needs, on an altar of sorts. And often what you get back is something far more valuable than what you give.”   “Affirmative people are powerful people.”   “This affirming life makes for a life of depth, and love, and beauty.”   “By giving empathy, people and the world we interact with become more interesting, diverse, and dynamic.

There is power to be found in clarity - knowing who you are, where you are, and the order of your life. On today's episode, McKay teaches listeners all about the power of clarity as well as the benefits it can bring to help you live a purposeful life.   The story of Molly Seidel and how she found clarity and pursued her goal with a clear vision despite facing different struggles opens up this episode. McKay then goes on to explain what disorder really is and why clarity in such areas as exercising and even in financial matters is needed for everyday living. He also shares the story of the success of the movie Titanic and the reason why the character Rose gained clarity. The episode comes to a close with McKay encouraging everyone to put order into your life, be clear about the role model you want to be, be clear about who you are, and then watch your life change for the better.   The Finer Details of This Episode:   -   Molly Seidel's story of finding clarity -   What is disorder? -   An illustration of the power of clarity -   The benefits that exercising brings -   Lessons from Titanic's Rose -   Why you need clarity to become a role model -   Ways to bring clarity in your financial life   Quotes:   “Clarity gives you the power to act decisively and deal with the storms and challenges that come your way in life.”   “There is power - unexpected power - found in getting clarity, getting crystal clear about who you are, where you are, and the order of your life.”   “We fall into drifting in our life, and the more we tolerate drifting, the more it becomes the norm.”   “When we get clear, we get healthy. When we get clear, we get capable. When we get clear, we get happier.”   “You can face the pain of discipline now or the pain of regret later. And discipline now gets easier the minute it becomes a regular part of your day.”   “One good role model is worth a thousand teachers.”   “When you get clear about roles and what you want to model, and you order your life to do so you'll be surprised by the remarkable things that will come about as a result.”   “Clarity requires a goal, a plan, and even a budget. ”   “If you're going to doubt anything, doubt your doubts.”   “You need the clarity of the picture of the person you are becoming and this level of clarity allows you to be bold, to try with more courage, and to do and to attempt what you might not otherwise attempt.”   Show Links:   https://www.audible.com/pd/Podcast/B08JJMDXHL (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

There are two primary sources of unhappiness: living focused on the wrong things, and living in a way not in harmony with what matters most to you. Today, McKay opens our eyes to see why we need to discover what matters most to us and how to live in harmony with our values to live a happy and purposeful life.   In this episode, McKay tells the story of the integrity possessed by Tony Finau, a man who valued honesty and decided to live with his values. He goes on to discuss the reasons why many are unhappy, the importance of deciding what matters most to you, and ways to identify your governing values. As McKay makes clear here today, when you become a light, and not a judge, and write down your governing values, you become set on your way to a happier and better life.   The Finer Details of This Episode:   -   Tony Finau's integrity -   The sources of unhappiness in life -   Why you have to decide what matters most -   How to live in harmony with what matters most -   Beethoven's Fifth Symphony- the pursuit of what matters -   How do you determine what matters most to you? -   Ways to identify your governing values -   Be a light, not a judge -   Living in harmony with your chosen values -   The power of planning your day   Quotes:   “To be happy and to pursue a purposeful life we have to decide what matters most and then seek to live in harmony with what matters.”   “A deal is a deal. A handshake is a handshake. Integrity is integrity.”   “It seems like selfishness, operating without common respect, and other such things, are the trades growing in our society.”   “Be yourself, but be that perfectly.”   “Our daily actions are in line with what matters most to us.”    “Our purpose in life is to become the best we can be, to become a person of noble actions and virtues.”   “We only have one life on this earth. I mean, I haven't heard of anyone going around for a second try, and if we aren't doing what matters most, then what in fact are we doing?”   “You must take responsibility for your belief window and remove the erroneous beliefs on that window.”   Show Links:   https://www.audible.com/pd/Podcast/B08JJMDXHL (Open Your Eyes with McKay Christensen)

Journalist Hollie McKay joins Tim from Afghanistan where she lives and from where she files her reports as the Taliban strengthens its control over the country in the wake of the U.S. pullout. Hollie is a war crimes investigator, an author and a reporter who gives a view on what life is like for the people of Afghanistan now that the Taliban is in control. https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/shapingopinion/Afghanistan_auphonic.mp3 Photo Source: Hollie McKay America just marked the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and four hijacked aircraft. The attacks were waged by Islamic terrorists with the backing of Osama Bin Laden and the terrorist group Al Qaeda.  At the time, Al Qaeda and the Taliban operated terrorist training camps in Afghanistan, where the 9/11 hijackers trained. On October 7, 2001, the United States and Great Britain responded to the 9/11 attacks by targeting terrorist training camps in Afghanistan with bombs and cruise missiles. That led to a war against the terrorists in that country and a 20-year war-time occupation. By August of this year, that conflict started to come to its end as the United States pulled out of the country. Over the 20 years of the Afghan war, more than 3,500 allied troops died in combat. That includes 2,448 American service members. More than 20,000 Americans suffered combat-related wounds. Many more came home with scars you can't see. According to Brown University, roughly 69,000 Afghan security forces were killed during that period, as well as 51,000 Afghan civilians and 51,000 terrorists and militants. The United States had spent $2 trillion on the conflict.  In the end, the U.S. left billions of dollars in military equipment and arms, including armored vehicles, drones and military helicopters. In 10 days in August, from August 6th through the 15th, the Taliban took control of Kandahar, Mazar-e-Sharif and then the capital city, Kabul. The incumbent Afghan government quickly fell apart with the country's president fleeing to the UAE. The U.S. evacuated its embassy, and thousands of American citizens went to the Kabul airport to flee the country. During the evacuation, two suicide bombers attacked the Kabul airport, killing more than 103 people, including 12 American Marines and one U.S. Navy medic. By the time the Taliban took control, there were still an undetermined number of Americans and Afghan allies still in the country.

A map of the afterlife. This week I am talking to Matt Mckay about his new book 'The Luminous Landscape of the Afterlife: Jordan's Message to the Living on What to Expect after Death'. Matthew McKay is a clinical psychologist and a professor at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, California. There is no better source of information on death and the afterlife than someone who has died and lives in spirit. Channeling his late son, Jordan, psychologist Matthew McKay offers a postdeath guide for the living, revealing in vivid detail what to expect when we die and how to prepare for the wonders of the afterlife. Specifically describing the transition experience and the early stages of the afterlife, including how to navigate each stage, Jordan shows how death is a fluid realm of imagination and invention, a luminous landscape created entirely of consciousness. He explains how a soul that has newly crossed over is an amnesiac, arriving without senses, a nervous system, and all that has anchored us to the world. Jordan details how to navigate without a body, how we learn and grow in the spirit world, and how to release anxiety about the end of life and instead view it as another stage of being. He shows that the inferno described by Dante is an optional nightmare caused by thought projections that overwhelm the newly transitioned soul, and he reveals that the bardos are where souls who are beset with fear and false beliefs spend time learning and recovering. Providing profound relief from the fear of death, as well as exercises to prepare you for navigating and communicating in spirit, Jordan's message reveals how love is the bonding element that holds all of consciousness--and the afterlife--together. McKay also documents the unbreakable bond between the living and the dead and teaches the skill of channeling, allowing you to connect to loved ones who have passed. https://www.amazon.com/Luminous-Landscape-Afterlife-Jordans-Message-ebook/dp/B08KRL8GW6/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=The+Luminous+Landscape+of+the+Afterlife.&qid=1632479850&s=digital-text&sr=1-1 http://www.seekingjordan.com/ https://teespring.com/en-GB/stores/the-past-lives-podcast https://www.patreon.com/pastlivespodcast
