I—yes, I alone—will blot out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again. ~ Isaiah 43:25 (NLT) The other day, I was thinking back on an episode in my career as a businessman. From my office, I could hear one of my coworkers yelling at one of my employees. This was not OK. So, I literally grabbed him by the collar and drug him back to my office and slammed the door. We began an epic shouting match that included some not so nice words and some horrible remarks about each other (and probably our mothers). There was one, small problem. You see, even though my office had a door, the walls only went part of the way up to the ceiling. It was a cubicle office. There was a big gap. So, the entire office not only heard the yelling, but heard every word of it. Needless-to-say, it was not my finest moment as a boss, or a human. Do you ever just randomly think of something you've done in life and cringe? Or maybe you even let out a groan. It may not even be anything recent, but from years and years ago. What's even worse is that the thought isn't just embarrassing, but it drenches us in buckets of guilt and shame. Perhaps it was a sexual sin. Maybe it was the way you treated someone unfairly, or chased away a good friend. Perhaps it is an addiction (either past or present). You now the moments? We call them regrets. The Bible calls them sins. Here's the trick, we often times remember our sins, and because of our shame wonder if God could possibly forgive us. After all, if we're still guilty, He must be horribly disappointed. Those thoughts, that guilt and shame, don't come from God. Why? Because if we've asked with a sincere heart, He's not only forgiven those sins, He's forgotten them. Check out our verse today, “I—yes, I alone—will blot out your sins for my own sake and will never think of them again.” In other words, when we remember sin, God says, “I don't know what you're talking about.” Therefore, that guilt, shame, and memory of sins past has its source solely in Satan. He wants to remind us of our past sins. God wants to forget the past and look forward to the future. Satan wants to trap you in shame and guilt. Jesus has freed you from all of that. So, when those thoughts and feelings come around, claim this truth from God. Remind Satan you're forgiven and move forward into your glorious future hand-in-hand with Jesus.
CBC News has recently reported that a number of women have come forward with allegations of sexual assault against an Ontario medicine man. Although allegations are not the same as charges or convictions, the stories the women have shared are reminiscent of an all-too-familiar scenario: the kind of stories we've all heard whispered about certain healers, spiritualists or elders—individuals you ought not be alone with. Needless to say, it's a perverse inversion of the roles and responsibilities such healers are supposed to embody and exemplify. The real question is how do they persist? How, despite the open secret of such misconduct, is it all too often met with silence? Joining host/producer Rick Harp to try to speak to those questions and more, plus hopefully nudge the conversation forward about what prevention might look like, are roundtable regulars Brock Pitawanakwat (Associate Professor of Indigenous Studies at York University) and Ken Williams (assistant professor with the University of Alberta's department of drama). // CREDITS: Our opening/closing theme is 'nesting' by birocratic.

Hello to you listening in Goeteborg, Sweden!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday with questions carefully chosen to help you collect stories in the oral tradition or spark your own writing. Either way, you'll say, "Thanks for the memories."Perhaps like me you've been surprised about when and how your personal knowing shows up.I remember a 6th grade grammar school homework assignment: write a story for English class. I did. Here's my story: “Once upon a time long ago and far away they all lived happily every after. The end.”Problem was my teacher didn't see it that way. “Miss Wyzga, you didn't understand the assignment.” And from out of my very deep knowing came this reply: “Yes. I did. You didn't understand my answer.”Needless to say I ended up where all the back-talking girls find themselves more often than not: in the principal's office. But something had shifted. I realized that they didn't know everything and, more importantly, I did know something - about me!Story Prompt: When has your bold, daring, unexpected Self surprised you? Write that story!Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something. All that matters is you have a story.This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories - stay for the magic.

Today's show is a discussion and review of the long awaited last ride of Daniel Craig's James Bond in No Time To Die.From 1953 to 1966, Ian Fleming wrote and published 12 James Bond novels and two short story collections. Following Fleming's death in 1964, an additional 42 Bond novels were written by several authors commissioned by Ian Fleming Publications up to as recently as 2018. Proven popular stories for TV, radio, and comics, the first of Fleming's novels to be adapted for film was Dr No in 1962 starring Sean Connery. The remainder of Fleming's Bond novels were made into films from 1962 to 1987, before the first post-Fleming novel was used to make License to Kill in 1987 starring Timothy Dalton as Bond. At the time, the only Fleming novel that had not been adapted to film by EON films, remained unused until 2006, discounting a loosely based 1967 spoof of the same name. Daniel Craig has been surprisingly cast to take the reins of Britain's super spy, as the new James Bond. And for Craig's debut, Fleming's first novel was used for the new Bond era's first film Casino Royale. The era of a new James Bond had begun and critics and audience fell in love with Craig's rough raw take on the former suave debonair persona that we had grown used to for the past 5 decades. Since its debut Casino Royale has grossed $594 million dollars worldwide and was in the top 10 grossing films of 2006. Craig went on to star in 3 more Bond films; Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre. In total, these 4 Daniel Craig Bond films had a worldwide gross of nearly $3.2 billion dollars and an average Rotten Tomatoes score of 78% by critics and 74% by audiences. Needless to say, we thought the studio wouldn't stop making Bond films anytime soon. A few years after Spectre, it was announced that the next Bond movie would be Daniel Craig's last. Although the news was disappointing, it didn't seem like a big deal at the time, but now that No Time To Die is finally here, looking forward to watching it was bitter sweet.Join Kenny and Del for a full discussion and breakdown.

Another Thursday has arrived on our calendars and that means the boys from the Real Life Podcast are back with a brand new episode to help you get you through what's left of your week. Today, the boys were talking about the season opener, and a whole lot more. To kick off the Thursday podcast, the guys jumped in with a look at last night's season opener as Tyler regaled the boys with stories from Rogers Place. From the atmosphere to the crowd to the ovations during player introductions, Yaremchuk broke down what happened at the game and spoke about what it was like to be back there for the first time in 581 days. From there, the podcast completely fell off the rails which allowed Wanye and Baggedmilk to tell stories that had nothing to do with anything. Lastly, the guys wrapped up the podcast by diving into Tyler's life and trying to figure out what he's all about and where he wants to be. Needless to say, you'll probably learn more about what's going on with the Real Life producer than you've ever heard before.

This week's Misfit Entrepreneur is Karl Maier. Karl is a serial entrepreneur with a knack for doubling and tripling the size of businesses quickly. He's done it 6 times either as the founder of a company or as part of the leadership team, including 7x'ing one company in less than 4 years. Currently, he's on his 3rd software company, Abunden, which helps internal and external business advisors be even more effective in helping their clients to grow and succeed. The software was created from the frameworks for success Karl has tested and applied in his businesses over the years. Needless to say, Karl has some amazing wisdom for to grow and scale businesses and I'm excited for him to share his secrets with you in this episode. https://Abunden.com/ Karl's journey was not a straight line. He learned about entrepreneurship from a young age from his grandfather and it created a curiosity in him as to why one company would succeed, and others would fail. As he grew up, he would see and be part of companies and see where they get stuck. Karl developed a passion for helping these companies and that is what he has done. From his experience, he put together the Abunden Framework to help companies have a platform of the knowledge needed to get unstuck and grow. Where do businesses get stuck? And from those you see succeed, what are the patterns or consistencies they have? In the beginning, it's about getting the sales and making it repeatable. The entrepreneur gets comfortable with this, but inevitably has to hire. It's once they begin to bring on employees and grow the business around and with them that causes challenges because the entrepreneur has to figure out how to let go and must let go to be successful. The breakdown comes in the transfer of information to make that shift. It becomes helping people to do their job rather than the entrepreneur having to do everything. The issues occur when the systems, documentation, and processes are not solidified. It's the behind-the-scenes small details that makes the difference – not the “sexy” stuff. Talk to us about the Abunden Framework and principles you use to build a business? Start with “why?” Where are we going? What are goes? Mission? Values? Next is deciding when and where people fit in and how you make decisions as a leader and management team. Training. You need to train everyone so they can manage, monitor, and develop employees to perpetuate the business. Training must be repeatable. Systems, processes, and documenting them must also be done. When you put these all together, it becomes much easier to run the business and the entrepreneur can delegate more and more. At the 12 min mark, we talk about deciding what type of businesses people must choose to have. What is the starting point to go from self-employed to a bigger business? You have to be willing to make some changes. If you won't change, the rest of the company will not. Picture yourself as the CEO of the company you want to have and what they will do. Their habits. What can you do to start doing that now? Talk about how you've been able to double sales some many times. What should people know about selling in today's world? Sometimes selling is not enough. You have to look all facets of the sale. For example, keeping more of the sale or increasing retention rates increases sales. You also not only have to sell to customers, but also to employees to get good ones and keep them which helps your business run better. Customers are not just buying your product, but what you believe in and stand for. People buy identity and cause as well nowadays. Customer retention strategies? Making sure you have the right people in the right positions to serve clients. Make sure people can be and do their best and love what they do. Develop processes to follow up and “check in” on clients. Developing service culture within the company. Talk about navigating pivots. What advice can you give? First, you must be willing to admit things aren't going right. There is a difference between an up-hill battle and a lost cause. Karl gives an example of business that pivoted during the pandemic, but then also had to pivot back. Timing? You have to understand what business you are really in. It is easy to get distracted with opportunity, but you must know what you do really well and choose the best overall ones to focus on. Look at what you promise to clients and what your values are to ground you. Communication is important – especially with your leadership. How do you see leadership? What is leadership? Leadership is about motivating people and showing and leading to the vision. Management is not leadership. Getting people to see how they can help the world and the customers through what they do and how they fit in – their small piece – important. How does a business set itself apart with customers and distinguish themselves? It comes back to the “why?” You must communicate why what you do makes a difference and the ways it makes a difference to both the employees and customers. What has surprised you most on your journey? There is a good list! The fact that sales is not the end all/be all. It is really important but building a team to deliver is equally important. It's not just about the sale. Advice for new entrepreneurs starting out? There is a lot to learn – listen to your customers and listen to your people. Become an amazing listener. Final thoughts? Things are not static. What is true today is not the same as a year or a few from now. Things constantly evolve and you must continue to adapt. Best Quote: Sales is not the end all/be all. It is really important but building a team to deliver is equally important. It's not just about the sale. Karl's Misfit 3: Every time your company doubles in size, everything breaks. Be ready to fix it. Motivate people. People are how things get done. Listen more than you talk.

“Interpretation evolves. It changes with the people who are changing.” - Leslieann Hobayan Welcome to another episode of Spiritual Grit Podcast! In today's episode, I talk about my recent Catholic mass experience (thankfully I attended virtually for reasons you'll soon find out). The new priest gave his homily, stating his beliefs plain and simple: marriage which is for only a man and woman only; being gay/homosexual is a sin; divorce is also a sin. He really jammed all the hot button issues into one foaming-at-the-mouth speech. There was no nuance, no room for discussion. Needless to say, it felt abusive and I was activated. This experience raises the question: what is the role of religions like Catholicism in a world that is quickly evolving to show that it doesn't matter what religion you practice, but how you love? What is the role of the old stodgy dogma of Roman Catholicism--which feels very distant from Jesus's message of love-- in this rapidly-changing 21st century ? Are practices like Catholicism useful in spiritual growth? In our overall evolution? Listen along to this full episode to learn more about how I continue to be disappointed (but, unfortunately not surprised) by the American Catholic Church.

10-12-21 We're headed to Baltimore, where we'll catch up with James Boicourt, founder and owner of Charm City Meadworks. James began making mead back in college (NC State) around 2004, after taking a great class on introductory beekeeping. He was already trying out homebrewing, and got so interested in beekeeping and entomology that he ended up taking a graduate level bee class. What else was a college kid going to do with a bunch of surplus honey anyhow? Of course he fermented it. It seemed like a great idea for a business someday, as there was very little available anywhere at that time, and when you could find or order it, choices were usually very limited. The knowledge base for making mead at that time was also very limited, particularly with regards to yeast strains, care and feeding of the yeast, etc. he remembers looking up some of the early example recipes on GotMead.com. He took what he was able to find and did several large controlled experiments over the years, doing a few batches of a control recipe, and working out which variables had the largest impact on taste. Needless to say 25 5 gallon batches running in parallel was not always the most easy of things to find a person willing to host early on. In early 2014, James and a good friend were looking to invest their time in something in the craft beverage industry. After some hard looking, Andrew and James circled back to mead because we felt like it was a relatively untapped opportunity that they could bootstrap. From early on their focus was on lighter, lower abv products, and predominantly canned ones, primarily because they enjoyed drinking them on a daily basis, and friends highly encouraged those as a very drinkable option. Covid has certainly been a big hit, but going from 1200 sq ft a few years ago to 10,000 in just a few years has been an interesting ride. The Charm City Meadworks taproom is at 400 E Biddle St, Baltimore, MD 21202. [break] This player will show the most recent show, and when we're live, will play the live feed.

The University of Nottingham has been forced to abandon its sinister attempt to ban Fr David Palmer from becoming its Catholic chaplain because his defence of unborn life might upset snowflakes. In this episode of Holy Smoke, I talk to one of Fr Palmer's key allies, Ryan Christopher, UK director of Alliance Defending Freedom, about that appalling episode and its backdrop: a sneaky culture of below-the-radar censorship driven in large part by student unions. Needless to say, the latter are furious that this government is passing legislation to protect free speech on campuses. Ryan has the details.

Welcome back to our weekend Cabral HouseCall shows! This is where we answer our community's wellness, weight loss, and anti-aging questions to help people get back on track! Check out today's questions: Rhea: Hi Dr. Cabral - Can you please provide a point of view on Waveblock's radiation deflectors for Bluetooth earbuds? While it deflects radiation from the ear/brain, could that be absorbed elsewhere in the process of deflection? I would love to know if you think this is a safe solution. THANK YOU! MORE INFO ON WAVEBLOCK: Maelys: Hello Doctor. I discovered your podcast few months ago and I listen to you every morning on my way to work. Thank you for sharing all this knowledge. I have hidradenitis suppurativa, it is « genetics » as my sisters, mom and her mom also suffer from it. Do you have any advices? Have you help any client to put it in remission? I have been very ill for the last year and a half. I am literally feeling half alive… I found a great GP that diagnosed candida overgrowth (Candida albicans) currently treating it with nilstat I am wondering if those 2 conditions could be linked? Therefore HS won't' be genetics but a symptom of candida overgrowth that is transmitted by the mother's vagina canal at birth? Thank you Leandro:Hi Dr. Cabral. I enjoy listening to your podcast and have learned a lot from them. I wanted to ask if you ever tried Magic Spoon cereal and would you recommend it? It's supposed to be a healthy alternative to traditional cereal. https://magicspoon.com/ Thanks, Leandro Danielle: Hi Dr. Stephen Cabral, Big fan of yours! I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos Hypothyroidism and have been detoxifying my environment. For the past 2 years I have been working with Polymer Clay as a hobby. I recently looked into what this "non-toxic" clay was made out of and it is man-made from a plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base. Would you advise staying away from this material as someone with an autoimmune disease? Thank you! Hilary: Hi Dr Cabral, I am a new listener and am a huge fan, currently working through the backlog of podcasts. I have a question regarding daily activity. Like many these days, I work from home and am currently finishing my Bachelors Of Science in Health and Wellness (then plan to move on to the IHP courses!). I am 44 years old, had my last baby at 38 and have never been someone who has had trouble with my weight. I am a kapha body type, very curvy and gain weight evenly everywhere when I put weight on. I never lost the “baby weight” from having my last child and have put on about 15 extra since then. Completely due to a sedentary desk job at home, combined with being tethered to the computer after work to work on my degree. Needless to say, I have a very hard time getting my 10,000 steps as it seems there are simply just not enough hours in the day between work, school and commutes back and forth to pickup/ drop off of kids. Do you have any recommendations for how I can get my 10,000 steps in, if they're broken up in chunks are they still effective? I follow a 14/10 to 16/8 intermittent fasting schedule 7 days per week and since hearing your podcast, do not eat after 6pm on any given day. I am very careful of my caloric intake, keeping my total calories right about 1500. Nicole: Hi Dr. Cabral! I am a big fan and super enjoy your podcast. It has really sparked an interest in the field of natural medicine and health and I hope to be enrolled in your ihp program in the next year :) I have a question around napping. I have a newer job where I am up before 5:30 and working by 6:30. After 8-9 hours of working and being stimulated by tons of people and things to do I feel like I absolutely have to lay down. I take great naps between 20-30mins and feel refreshed, mind cleared and like I can continue on with my evening normally. I can get overwhelmed and stressed with work, take adrenal soothe daily (3-4 capsules) and was wondering if this is normal, and why I need extra sleep at 3pm after early and eventful workdays.

Greg's here to break down his thoughts on game 1 of the ALDS between his beloved Chicago White Sox and the lyin', cheatin' Houston Astros. Needless to say, he's not happy and he wants to talk about it!
We exist in a North American bubble, where our teams, sports, movies and celebrity are the most coveted and important, but why is that? What does the rest of the world think? Needless to say outside of our borders there is a big world, that doesn't revolve around King James. To get more specific, we speak to Jaron Blossomgame, former Cleveland Cavalier, current starter for the Ratiopharm Ulm in the EuroCup, and host of the “Beyond the Press” podcast. Jaron gives us his backstory from being in the NBA to now playing overseas and the positives that have come along with it. Why is the hardest level of play, not the most prestigious? We learn about his show “Beyond the Press” and since it's been a while, we end up giving some Kobe love. Trish and Kurt start off the show with the recent press involving Montreal Canadiens superstar goalie Carey Price, and forward Jonathan Drouin, both of whom are on leave for Non-Covid related illnesses and both who have used their platforms to promote the importance of looking after your mental health; we get into the NBA preseason, and the most recent Kyrie Irving new; and get caught up on what's new here at the Tidal League Podcast Network.
Welcome back to The Gap Year Podcast!Today, Debbie Weil brings author, entrepreneur, and renowned business thinker Dorie Clark on the show, a perfect way to kick off Season 4.Dorie is a 42-year-old business consultant whose life and work resonate strongly with Debbie. She was a Philosophy major in college, graduated from Harvard Divinity school, worked as a journalist (something Debbie did for two decades) and was a presidential campaign spokesperson. Then, in a very intentional way, over a period of eleven years, she became a highly respected business author and speaker. Dorie is on the Thinkers50 list, the top 50 business thinkers in the world, and has just published her fourth book: THE LONG GAME: HOW TO BE A LONG-TERM THINKER IN A SHORT-TERM WORLD. She now teaches at Duke and Columbia's business schools and consults with clients like Google and Microsoft and the World Bank.But - and this is the part that applies to midlife reinvention - it took repeated rejection along the way for her to get to where she is today. She tells us those stories and more in THE LONG GAME. Her new book is aimed at a mid-career business audience but Debbie was struck over and over, as she read it, how Dorie's approach applies to life and work after 60 or 65 or 70.Dorie is also a documentary filmmaker, a Broadway investor, and a trained musical theatre lyricist and composer.She writes in THE LONG GAME about creating white space in your calendar, meaning give yourself unstructured time to think “differently” and to explore and experiment. She also talks about optimizing for meaning (instead of for money, usually the default) and optimizing for interesting: follow your curiosity even if you don't know exactly where that will take you. Wow, she could be writing a script for a grown-up gap year and for optimizing a post-career, non-retired chapter of life - the focus of this podcast.Needless to say, Dorie is also a huge proponent of trying new things even if they are way outside your current area of expertise.This is a great conversation full of useful nuggets about how to think long-term and why that matters.

Last week, in an ESPN article advocating for better living conditions for minor leaguers, Giants farmhand Kieran Lovegrove came out publicly as bisexual and revealed that he had been out to teammates since 2019. Needless to say, this was a huge thrill to discover. Today, Kieran joins me for a a fascinating, intellectual, and inspiring discussion about his coming out experience while riding the buses in Minor League Baseball. After hearing about how many of Lovegrove's teammates responded positively and encouraged his journey toward embracing his true self, I have never felt better about the direction in which baseball is headed. But in order for the sport to fully realize its potential, it's also going to have to start paying its minor leaguers a living wage and providing more humane living and training conditions for its next generation. We also delve into Kieran's work with The Fair Ball Campaign and Advocates for Minor Leaguers to achieve these goals. You can visit that important organization here.

After a long offseason, we tepidly weigh in on vaccines in the NBA, try to get the Nets to loan Kyrie to the Spurs, get Carson's live reaction to the GM survey and discuss some gut optimism for the Bulls, Wizards, Celtics and T-Wolves.
I was called for jury duty in Broward County earlier this week and sat across from Nikolas Cruz, the Parkland shooter, as he prepares to stand trial on jailhouse assault charges. Needless to say I went through a range of emotions.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that there were 15.6 million cosmetic procedures performed in 2020. Needless to say, human beings are obsessed with appearance. But when Samuel searches for a new king of Israel, we discover that the Lord looks on the heart. This is a frightening reality because the Lord sees each sinful and selfish desire of our hearts. But in today's episode, Paul will remind us that we don't have to live in fear because Christ came to pay the penalty for the sin of our hearts.If you've been enjoying The Paul Tripp Podcast, please leave us a review!

In this introductory episode to the 2021 OctoBoo series, the sisters take a nighttime field trip to hunt for a ghostly light. Needless to say, Anne nor Karen have a future career in ghost hunting! According to https://thehauntingsofsc.blogspot.com/2013/12/jacksonboro-light.html The legend goes like this: "...a little girl had wondered off a bit to far from her house, considering this road is heavily wooded on both sides and it was getting darker by the minute, the family grew frantic, so the preacher set off into the night, lit a lantern to guide his way and searched the road and the woods and apparently got struck by a passing train on his search for his daughter which he never found, no one knows what had become of the daughter either. To this day it is said that the preacher still continues to search the road for her with the light of a swinging lantern which sometimes is accompanied by the sound of a train whistle." #ghosthunters #hauntedplaces #lowcountryhauntings #spooky

Hello Misfit Nation! Welcome to another edition of "Lessons for Hannah!" Many years ago, I introduced a new format that alongside our regular episodes called “Lessons for Hannah.” Hannah is my daughter and one of the main inspirations for the Misfit Entrepreneur. I wanted to have a place where she could go and learn from her daddy and his Misfit friends throughout her life….even after I am gone. If you haven't listened to the first episode of "Lessons for Hannah," I urge you to as it gives some more background and tells the amazing story of how Hannah came to be in our lives. Lessons for Hannah are short, very useful, and sometimes comical lessons, that I want to share with you and give to Hannah to help in your lives. Because I want Hannah to have these for her life, I'm going to speak as though I am talking directly to her. These episodes are a lot of fun and if you think there is a lesson that we should include in these episodes, please don't hesitate to send it over to us at email@example.com. We'd love to share it. This week's Lesson for Hannah Hannah, I want to talk to you about your impact. Your impact on yourself, your life, those around you, and the world. How you approach each aspect of your life impacts you, the world around you, and others. You may not see it or know it, but it does. And the true test of character is how you act and adhere to your principles when others are not watching – because unbeknownst to you, someone probably is. We don't think about it much, but everything we do impacts something in our lives. This has been called the Butterfly effect or Newton's 3rd Law which states that for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction. If object A exerts a force on object B, object B also exerts an equal and opposite force on object A. In other words, forces result from interactions. We have a lot of interactions in our lives all throughout every day, but we rarely stop to think about effects that they have. I was recently reminded of the importance of reflecting and making sure that we approach life each day giving our best and being our best – because you never know what or who can be impacted. A number of years ago, your mother and I bought an investment property. It was a cheap fixer-upper property in a less desirable area. The goal originally was to buy it very cheap, fix it up, and then flip it for a $5000-10,000 profit. Needless to say we didn't know what we didn't know, spent a lot more money than we thought fixing it up, and then got caught up in the real estate crash of 2007-2008. So, we turned it into a rental. It did OK. We went through a lot of renters over a period of 4 years to where we had to eventually evict one for non-payment after months of working with them. Of course, they trashed the place on the way out, but even worse, left rotting food throughout the house and the place even had bedbugs. I had to do the work on it and essentially had to redo the inside of the house. Needless to say, I learned a lot of lessons that helped me for future investment properties. After it was ready to rent again, we started looking for renters and we got an application from a young 18-year-old, single new mom. She wanted a place for her and her son that would be theirs and she wanted a longer-term lease. She had a job and had proven she had income to cover the rent and there was something that told me she was worth a chance. She rented from us for 7 years. I never really had any problems with her. She would sometimes get behind on rent but was always proactive and let me know what was going on, when I could expect payment, and how grateful she was that we would work with her. Over time, I would see her for inspections and other needs and as we talked would impart some piece of wisdom to help her based on our conversation. She was a hard worker and dedicated to her son and I respected that, so, if I could help her grow as a person, I would. I never knew if those lessons about finance or business or thoughts on how to increase her value as an employee ever really stuck. A couple years ago, we had recouped our investment and the market had turned up. We got an offer on the house that was solid and decide to sell it. I kept the renter in the loop and was up front that I did not know if they would keep her as a renter and to be prepared just in case. Once we closed, they gave her 30 days' notice to vacate and she let me know. She understood why I sold the place and was again, thankful for working with her all those years. I wished her well and that was that, or so I thought. In the spring of the this year, I got a text out of the blue that said, “I just wanted to reach out to you and meant to before, but just go caught up with life. I'm working a double today! But you've been on my mind lately. I never got to tell you how much gratitude I have for you and your wife. You were truly a blessing for me and my son. If it wasn't for you being so kind and understanding, I really don't know where we would be today. I just want you to know, it was never taken for granted. I try to pay it forward every day. Maybe one day, I can be successful like you and help someone out the same. Anyways, thank you again so much for everything you have done.” When I received the message, I sat back and thought, wow, I did not know we had that much of an impact, and I had to respond. In doing so I did my best to give what may be the last wisdom I could give her. I said this, "Thank you very much for your kind words, but it wasn't hard for us because it was the right thing to do. It's wonderful that you pay it forward. And you have the potential to be more successful than us and help many. It comes down to a few things. Never giving up, ever, in pursuit of your dreams and goals. Never stop learning and self-educating. Everything you need is at the library, use it to your advantage. Read books on successful people, read books on how to improve yourself. Never stop learning. Work hard, but also smart. Learn to manage money well and how to grow it and nurture it. And do what is right and care for others. You follow that and you'll get all the success you ever dreamed of." I think that advice works for everyone, and I hope it impacts you in your own way like it did our renter. Hannah, you never know what impact you will have and when it will take hold. Live your life every day as your best and seek wisdom so that you can share it and help others. I love you, Daddy Best Quote: Never giving up, ever, in pursuit of your dreams and goals. Never stop learning and self-educating. Everything you need is at the library, use it to your advantage. Read books on successful people, read books on how to improve yourself. Never stop learning. Work hard, but also smart. Learn to manage money well and how to grow it and nurture it. And do what is right and care for others. You follow that and you'll get all the success you ever dreamed of. Misfit 3: How you approach each aspect of your life impacts you, the world around you, and others. You may not see it or know it, but it does. The true test of character is how you act and adhere to your principles when others are not watching – because unbeknownst to you, someone probably is. When you are impacted in a positive way by someone else, pay it forward as much as you can.

So, what is the point?No — the point of life, itself?Hearing the Dharma?* * *This segment and the next will each take up one of Master Dogen's briefer teachings, this one known as Dogen's Vow, the other as Zazenshin, variously translated as an “acupuncture needle” or “lancet” for zazen. These are often chanted together in service, probably owing to their relative brevity. But they also bookend the master's teaching, so to speak. The vow paints a broad-brush picture of why we pursue this practice, as far as that can be expressed. Notably, it does not mention zazen directly. Whereas the needle poem homes in on the centrality of zazen, as the very transmission of the teaching.We vow with all beings, from this life on throughout countless lives, to hear the true Dharma; that upon hearing it, no doubt will arise in us, nor will we lack in faith; that upon meeting it we shall renounce worldly affairs, and maintain the Buddhadharma; and that in doing so, the great earth and all beings together will attain the buddha way.That's quite a vow, and all in one breath. Note that the “true Dharma” implies that there could be “untrue” Dharma, which we are also capable of hearing, one would presume. And we vow to listen for it not just in this lifetime, but, effectively, forever. Which brings up the question, what do you mean “we,” white man? Of course, Master Dogen was not, technically, white. We are all red, under the skin. That “no doubt” whatever will arise in us seems to contradict the old Zen admonition to “Keep your doubt at a keen edge.” That gnawing doubt is the sword of Manjusri, programmed to cut through all delusions, if you but keep it sharp. Zazen is the whetstone.Not lacking in faith, nor feeling doubt, means our trust in the ancestors' teaching, and our trust in original Mind, remains unflagging, in the face of the mashup that passes for “worldly affairs” these days. Like one continuous pileup on the expressway, or an unending train wreck, all other inducements and various seductions of modern life are ultimately disappointing, if not dismaying. But actually being able to maintain the essential and ongoing Buddhadharma depends upon our “meeting it.” When and where does this meeting occur? Somehow, if we do so, not only all beings, but the earth itself will benefit. This may be a nod to the ecological stewardship of the environment, not as obvious an issue in those days.Although our past evil karma has greatly accumulated, indeed being the cause and condition of obstacles in practicing the way, may all Buddhas and Ancestors who have attained the buddha way be compassionate to us and free us from karmic effects, allowing us to practice the way without hindrance.May they share with us their compassion, which fills the boundless universe with the virtue of their enlightenment and teachings.We tend to prefer the word “harmful” to “evil,” or perhaps, “counter-productive,” with reference to karma. The contemporary take on evil is laden with unfortunate associations from theism and the culture. Not that there is no evil abroad in the world, just that it consists mainly in the actions of people plagued by ignorance, e.g. of the Buddhadharma, or other compassionate teachings that lobby against their lesser angels. This accumulation of karma, like sludge clogging the kitchen sink drain pipe over time, conjures an image from the Beatles: “Boy, you're gonna carry that weight, carry that weight, a long time.”Calling on “all Buddhas and Ancestors,” as he is wont to do from time to time, we find a bit cringeworthy. For us sophisticated 21st century humans, it smacks of superstition, or worse, religious belief. Do we actually expect those who have gone before to be able to “free us from karmic effects,” via some spooky action at a distance? I think we can afford to forgive Master Dogen this kind of construction, given that he lived in a time that most people still believed that illness was the consequence of the action of demons. And who are we to disagree?My Dharma name, Taiun, means “great cloud.” Matsuoka Roshi explained that the aspirational aspect of it means that, like a big cloud floating overhead in the sky, there are no barriers anywhere. However, down here on the ground, I am continually running into one or another kind of barrier, or “hindrance.” Some of which, I am sure, would qualify as karmic in nature, and provenance. Just imagine being able to practice free of all such constrictions. Would that still qualify as legitimate “practice”?In sharing their compassion, does Dogen mean that they actually take heed of our problems, or, like Job, is this the constant conundrum, or koan, of everyday life? Suffering with us, the literal meaning of compassion, may be taken to imply that the long-suffering saints of Buddhism do suffer fools gladly, we being the fools in question. That the “virtue of their enlightenment and teachings” fills the boundless universe, is tantamount to what is meant by merit, I think. Any merit is already built into this existence. It is up to us to realize it. It seems unfair that we may accumulate karma, but not merit.Buddhas and Ancestors of old were as we; we in the future shall be Buddhas and Ancestors.Revering Buddhas and Ancestors, we are one Buddha and one Ancestor.Awakening Bodhi-mind, we are one Bodhi-mind.This should be reassuring, that they were like us and we shall — not will — be like them. “Shall” carries the connotation of certainty, with the glaring caveat of “in the future.” Coupling this with the “countless lives” of the first stanza should disabuse us of any expectations of anything significant happening in the present lifetime. Could happen, but not likely. However, if it should come to pass that we gain an insight into this mystery, we will find that we are one with them. Here is another version of the wave and the ocean, only this time the little wave wakes up to the vast ocean, just in time. Needless to say, it is impossible for a wave to drown.Because they extend their compassion to us freely, and without limit, we are able to attain buddhahood, and let go of the attainment.So we get no credit for attaining buddhahood. No kudos, no golden ring or free ride on the merry-go-round. It is all up to them and their limitless compassion, remembering that we are, fundamentally, them. Attaining Buddhahood is an interesting construction. It is the attainment of non-attainment. Like the fish swimming in the ocean, and the bird flying in the sky, two of Master Dogen's favorite analogies, what if one day the fish, or the bird, wakes up to the fact of flying; or the fish realizes that it is swimming, and that there is no end to the air, or the water? That would amount to quite an attainment for a fish, or a bird. But it would not change a thing.Therefore the Ch'an master Lung-ya said, “Those who in past lives were not enlightened will now be enlightened. In this life save the body — it is the fruit of many lives. Before buddhas were enlightened, they were the same as we; enlightened people of today are exactly as those of old.”What is the turning point that now enables the enlightenment of those unable to turn the trick in past lives? What changed, and when? Now that what, exactly, has occurred? Lung-ya was a student and dharma successor of Tozan Ryokai, accredited with founding Soto Zen in China. He lived during the 800s and 900s, in which the legacy of Bodhidharma and the first four centuries of Zen in China had been secured. Maybe this is what he meant by “now.” Now that these living buddhas and ancestors had transmitted their compassion to us “freely and without limit,” in the form of their recorded teachings, as well as their transmitted successors. Those living today, who were not enlightened in their past lives, now have a golden opportunity. If they do wake up, they will be “exactly as those of old.”Quietly explore the farthest reaches of these causes and conditions, as this practice is the exact transmission of a verified Buddha.Repenting in this way, one never fails to receive profound help from all Buddhas and Ancestors.By revealing and disclosing our lack of faith and practice before the Buddha, we melt away the root of transgressions, by the power of our repentance.These “causes and conditions” are not limited to the specific circumstances of existence at Lung-ya's or Dogen's time. They are here with us now, and are not separable from the transmission of our own buddha-mind. Repenting our wasteful and self-destructive ways, we too can avail ourselves of this legacy from all Buddhas and Ancestors. Our lack of faith is not in a belief system, but in the process of meditation itself. As Dogen says elsewhere, “In zazen, what precept is not fulfilled?”This is the true and simple color of true practice of the true mind of faith; of the true body of faith.The “true and simple color of true practice” is one of my favorite turns-of-a-phrase by Master Dogen. The choice of the term “color” is compelling, whether literally what Dogen said, or a translator's choice. We speak of our experience being colored by emotion, preconceptions, and misconceptions. Color carries the connotation of emotional overlays, which may or may not be appropriate to the situation at hand. Here, the term denotes accuracy, I think, a true and correct shading of the practice of the “true mind of faith,” one in which repentance is the guiding principle keeping us coloring within the lines. The use of “true body” of faith at the end I think suggests the predominance of the physical over the mental, or the real over the imaginary. The body can make no mistake as to this true practice. It already manifests the truth, in all its homeliness. Only the mind can get it wrong. But, as there is no separation of mind and body, all is well.* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

The long wait is finally over. After six years, more than half a decade, 72 full months... you can finally find out what we think of No Time To Die. This is not our full review, which will save for a much later viewing, but our initial impressions of the long-awaited 25th James Bond film and Daniel Craig's final outing. Needless to say, there are spoilers abound! We discuss the highs and lows of No Time To Die, speculate about the future of 007, and try to process our surprisingly mixed feelings at what is perhaps the boldest Bond film to date. We would also love to know your thoughts, so email us via firstname.lastname@example.org.

One of the most dangerous things that a leader can say is “we've tried this before and it didn't work.” It's so crucial for an organization to have team members who are innovative enough to bring new ideas to the table. Especially if you're someone who's been inside the box for so long, it's refreshing to have people come in and help you take a look outside of the box. One way to squash your team's innovation is through shutting them down by outrightly rejecting their ideas. Today's guest, John Coyle is one of the world's leading experts in design, thinking, and innovation. So we talk about how leaders can foster innovation in their organizations all while maintaining decisiveness. It's not an easy feat as we know there are quite a few leaders out there who are so used to their old ways that they resist change and are unwilling to change, as well. Some important highlights we bring into the discussion are: How leaders can foster innovation within the organization while maintaining decisiveness, and How to encourage your team to come up with innovative ideas and take action on the right ones Don't be that leader who shuts down their team's innovative ways. Be the one that cultivates it!

Just 10 miles north of Boston is the city of Lynn, MA, which was originally known for its industrial economy up into the early to mid 20th century. Times changed and so did the reputation of the largest city in Essex county, earning it the title of "The City of Sin" largely due to the influx of crime during the '60s into the '80s. Flash forward to now, Lynn is the home of over 90,000 residents and also the home of some very promising talent. Amongst the names we hear of often, has to be C. Wells, a rapper from the "West Side" of the city, known for his lyricism and catchy hooks–and this week, we had the chance to give him his flowers and have him represent his city! C. Wells is not a new-comer to the MA Hip-Hop scene as he's been one of the most consistent rappers out of Lynn within this past decade. He's been able to release a slew of mixtapes and singles and more recently, some EP's that's gotten him features from the likes of G Herbo and Dave East. Even more recently he was spotted with a cameo in the Millyz "Cantaloupe" music video. Needless to say, the "Live Famous" creator has made a name for himself and continues to build on that. C. Wells stops by the pod to sit down with Charlie MaSheen & Shanelle Shanté about his rap career, his brief online exchange with Boston legend and Source Magazine pioneer Benzino, about his recent gap in work, what's next and SO MUCH MORE! You definitely want to tap in with us this week and also the heartfelt #RedCupsAndRap freestyle C. Wells left us with! BE SURE TO CHECK OUT C. WELLS's CATALOGUE OF MUSIC ON ALL DSPs AS WELL AS HIS MOST RECENT SINGLE "Goat"!!! CHECK OUT ALL OF OUR CONTENT: http://www.linktr.ee/CWTFBradio
Dreams. Today Pastor Michael is talking about dreams. We all have them, we all think of things we want. With the weirdness that is the pandemic, we've seen some of our dreams delayed; in fact some have disappeared! But, dreams persist and if you partner a dream with the Lord, it can become a vision. Michael says this deeply and wants you to know this: God cares about you deeply. No matter what, what the situation, what's going on, what life brings, anything: The Lord cares about you and has a plan for you, a vision for you and, yes, even a dream for you! Today we'll learn about Joseph and his dreams. His dreams were both literal and plans from the Lord dreams. Little did he know that those dreams cost him everything and brought him everything! Joseph is starting, at this point in his life, to have dreams from the Lord. And these dreams speak of sheaves of grain and the sun, moon and stars bowing down to him. Needless to say, when he tells that to his brothers, they hate him for it. And even his father rebukes him for telling of these dreams. His dream does represent God's will for him. He will rise to become one of the most powerful people in the world in time. But he, at the time, only sees part of the story. He cannot see everything that is coming. When God gives you a dream or a vision, we love the idea of the highs, not the lows. Joseph saw what would happen but not the process needed to get there. Having a goal is big, having a goal you feel the Lord gives you is even bigger. Paying the price for the Lord's vision is the highest goal there is. Dare to ask God for a vision bigger than yourself! Today's verses are found in Genesis 37: 5-10.
David Neeleman is the Founder of 5 airlines and changed the way people experienced surprise and delight by flying JetBlue. During the pandemic, he launched his latest airline brand, Breeze, and I sat down with David to talk about what branding means to him, what makes great company culture, how a book inspired the JetBlue brand, and his preferred airline naming process (in the case of JetBlue the name was derived the Friday before a Monday launch).Needless to say, an episode that is packed with insights from a truly amazing brand builder I believe all of us are thrilled to hear from on the subject of branding.
Today's show is a discussion and review of Paul Schrader's 2021 American noir, THE CARD COUNTER. It's been 4 years since writer/director Paul Schrader made a film. His last film, First Reformed (2017) brought the house down with Ethan Hawke in his best role to date. Schrader is a methodical writer and refuses to commit to a project until he feels everything is just right. And by “just right” I mean that Schrader has a detailed uncompromising process that he goes through each and every time, which is the reason why his films are very tidy. It's been a long time since Martin Scorsese and Paul Schrader have worked together, 22 years to be exact. Although the two have swapped roles in their partnership, they have always hit home runs with the likes of the Taxi Driver (1976); Raging Bull (1980), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), and Bringing out the Dead (1999). And if you've seen these four films, you know the type of film that these two film legends create. Needless to say our expectations were high.Join Kenny and Del for a full discussion and breakdown. The Brothers will dive into pre-production, film performance, writing, direction, acting, scenes, and more. We hope our discussion will not only entertain you, but will also spark your interest in this film.

Most businesses don't make a profit in their first year of business. In fact, most new businesses need 18 to 24 months to reach profitability. And then there's the reality that 25% of new businesses fail in their first year, according to the Small Business Administration. Luckily for all our WorkParty listeners, I have Diana Lee—the co-founder and CEO of Constellation Agency, one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in the U.S.—on today's episode to talk all about how to build a business that turns a profit (and then some!). Her business, Constellation, is on track to double (yes, DOUBLE) its revenue from $20M to $45M this year and plans to continue expanding its work with retail companies, like Henry Rose (Michelle Pfeiffer's clean fragrance line), Macy's, and Bearaby. Not only that, but Constellation was named the #65th fastest-growing private company in the U.S. by Inc. Magazine, the #7 fastest-growing advertising/marketing company on the Inc. 5000 list, and the #10th Fastest-Growing Women-Led Company. Needless to say, I can't wait to chat with this incredible entrepreneur all about how she's scaled her business, put diversity and inclusion first, and doubled her revenue in 12 months (no big deal!)—all without taking on any outside funding.

Highlights: “It's being widely reported that the Russian Federation is threatening to ban YouTube in retaliation for YouTube blocking 2 German-languaged channels managed by the Russia Today broadcast network.”“Ironically just last month, the chief executive of YouTube, Susan Wojcicki, reiterated YouTube's commitment to free speech as its ‘core value of the company' and that their Terms of Service is ‘fully consistent with that value'. Needless to say, Russia is not buying it and as of today the government is threatening to ban YouTube outright unless the channels are reinstated.”“The backlash against Big Tech is real and it's only going to get worse given the polls that have been coming out of late. Gallup's tracking of public sentiment towards BigTech shows that positive views have fallen from 46% in 2019 to just 34% today. Nearly 60% want more government regulation of Big Tech companies, up 9 points from 2019.”Timestamps:[01:33] Why YouTube shutdown 2 German channels owned by Russia Today and how Russia threatens to ban YouTube[02:55] On YouTube's previous disciplinary measures against Sky News Australia[03:40] How this isn't the first time that Russia and YouTube have faced off[06:45] On the growing worldwide trend known as Techlash[08:33] How the backlash against BigTech is only going to get worseResources:Join me in Jacksonville, FL, with Donald Trump Jr on Oct. 8-9!!!

As a queer, Japannese American woman, Erica reflects what our true America looks like.
