For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.GALATIANS 5:113 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” GALATIANS 5:13-1424 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.GALATIANS 5:24-26 Egkrateia was widely praised by the Greeks long before the time of Paul. In fact, Ancient Greek philosophers such as Socrates considered it[self-control] to be the foundational human virtue. Xenophon, a follower of Socrates, summarized well his teachers' views on the subject: Shall not every man hold self-control [egkrateia] to be the foundation of all virtue, and first lay this foundation firmly in his soul? For who without this can learn any good or practice it worthily?Philip KennesonBad news: self-control is hard.Good news: the opposite of self-control is not an out-of-control person, it's out-of-control appetites. Appetites: a natural desire to satisfy a bodily need; a strong desire or liking for something“PEOPLE ARE AT THE MERCY OF THEIR APPETITES” - The WorldTHE WORLD'S VIEW OF APPETITEYOU ARE WHAT YOU DESIRE (IDENTITY)2. YOU WILL NEVER BE TRULY HAPPY UNTIL YOU SATISFY THAT DESIRE But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.2 Timothy 3:1-3Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.1 John 2:15-17 11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.Ecclesiastes 3:11"The human heart has an eternal desire that will NEVER be met and satisfied with temporal things; it can only be met by a relationship with an eternal God.”“SEEKING TO FULFILL OUR OWN DESIRES OFTEN LEADS TO SLAVERY TO THEM.”Jon TysonOur physical, emotional, and spiritual appetites that we ALL HAVE will never be fully satisfied until we jump head-first into a relationship with God.Self-Control: sacrificial stewardship of yourself for the sake of othersThen Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” 4 But he answered, “It is written,“‘Man shall not live by bread alone,     but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'”5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple 6 and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written,“‘He will command his angels concerning you,'and“‘On their hands they will bear you up,     lest you strike your foot against a stone.'”7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'” 8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written,“‘You shall worship the Lord your God     and him only shall you serve.'”11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.Matthew 4:1-11WHAT KIND OF PERSON NEEDS SELF-CONTROL?EVERY KIND OF PERSON.We should consider the circumstances that preceded the temptation of Jesus: He was in an especially devout frame of mind before His temptation.1. He was engaged in an act of public obedience to His Father's will before His temptation.2. He was in an exceedingly humble frame of mind before His temptation.3. He was blessed by a heavenly assurance of His Sonship before His temptation.4. He was filled with the Holy Spirit before His temptation.5. He was completely separated from the world before His temptation.Self-control is not something we grow out of; it's something we grow into.B: BOREDH: HUNGRY A: ANGRY L: LONELYT: TIRED2 And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 And the tempter cameMatthew 4:2-31. JESUS WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIMEThen Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.Matthew 4:1In the spring of the year, the time when kings go out to battle, David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel. And they ravaged the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained at Jerusalem. It happened, late one afternoon, when David arose from his couch and was walking on the roof of the King's house, that he saw from the roof a women bathing…2 Samuel 11:1-22.

Socrates was charged, tried, and convicted of crimes of impiety (introducing a different God than the God ancient Greece believed and worshiped) and corrupting the youth.Before Socrates' trial and execution in 399 BC too much was going on in Athens that most historians believe led to Athenians handing Socrates the death penalty. In this episode professor, Ron Cline goes into the background and events that led to the philosopher's death by poison.Thank you for listening.You can contact us @: ericknga7@gmail.com

Colossians 2:8-9 'Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.' The apostle Paul didn't believe in beating around the bush! He was so convinced that Christ was the complete answer to the human predicament that he saw every other philosophy as a waste of time. That didn't mean that he was unwilling to spend time listening to people with other beliefs. He simply didn't believe that they had anything to offer when compared with Christ. When Paul visited Athens, he spent a great deal of time speaking with the philosophers there, and gladly accepted an invitation to address the Areopagus (the forum in which they held their debates). He sensitively referred to their own poets and thinkers but his focus was always to proclaim Christ. It is the fact that Jesus was both fully man and fully God which marks him apart from other great teachers. I love the words of Victor Hugo, the French novelist and poet, who stated: “Pythagoras, Epicurus, Socrates, Plato, these are the torches of the world; Christ is the light of day.” The great thinkers and philosophers of the world have contributed insight and wisdom, but they pale into insignificance alongside the Jesus, the light of the world. We live in a society which wants to suggest every philosophy and religion is of equal significance. But Paul would robustly disagree. Only of Jesus can it be said that the fullness of God dwelt in him. He alone can be described as “the Way, the Truth and the Life” (John 14:6). I believe that everyone has a right to believe what they want, and that it is our Christian duty to protect their right to do so. At the same time, I believe we are called to be faithful to the truth that we have received. Jesus came to bring life to the world and we need to seize every opportunity to share this good news with the people we meet. Question: How do you respond when you are faced with false philosophies? Prayer: Lord God, keep me strong when I face people who reject your truth. May I always be both clear and gracious when I disagree with others. Amen

On this episode of Let's Be Blunt, Montel speaks with the Co-Founder and CEO of Jane Technologies Inc. After leaving active duty in 2011 as a U.S. Army veteran and Apache helicopter commander, he turned to cannabis to re-acclimate to civilian life. Because cannabis wasn't legal at the time where he lived, he was forced to rely on the black market, where he couldn't be sure about the quality of the cannabis he was buying. The frustration of that experience, coupled with the lack of access to cannabis for his fellow veterans, led him to co-found Jane Technologies with his brother. Iheartjane.com launched in 2017 to provide an e-commerce solution for legal cannabis retailers. Jane's unique offering provides dispensaries and brands with a turnkey e-commerce solution, including real-time POS integration, curated content directly from the brands (the best pictures, descriptions, etc.), and retail and market analytics.

Socrates was a famous philosopher who is often cited as a source of inspiration for self-improvement and inner wisdom. In this episode, we feature beautiful & powerful quotes from Socrates set to a beautiful soundtrack with the intent to help you develop a stronger mind. If you're looking to improve your mind and increase your awareness of observed reality, then you need to listen to this episode! Who was Socrates? Socrates, (born c. 470 BCE, Athens [Greece]—died 399 BCE, Athens), ancient Greek philosopher whose way of life, character, and thought exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy. Socrates was a widely recognized and controversial figure in his native Athens, so much so that he was frequently mocked in the plays of comic dramatists. (The Clouds of Aristophanes, produced in 423, is the best-known example.) Although Socrates himself wrote nothing, he is depicted in conversation in compositions by a small circle of his admirers—Plato and Xenophon first among them. He is portrayed in these works as a man of great insight, integrity, self-mastery, and argumentative skill. The impact of his life was all the greater because of the way in which it ended: at age 70, he was brought to trial on a charge of impiety and sentenced to death by poisoning (the poison probably being hemlock) by a jury of his fellow citizens. Plato's Apology of Socrates purports to be the speech Socrates gave at his trial in response to the accusations made against him (Greek apologia means “defense”). Its powerful advocacy of the examined life and its condemnation of Athenian democracy have made it one of the central documents of Western thought and culture. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/karatjuicepod/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/karatjuicepod/support

“My cure for Platonism has always been Thucydides.” Nietzsche saw in the first historian of Ancient Greece the will to adhere to realism, and to learn the lessons of the “harsh teacher” of war. Where he sees cowardice in Plato, Nietzsche sees courage in Thucydides, as well as the “practical justice” of allowing all the parties a fair representation of their viewpoint. Thucydides, for Nietzsche, is the epitome of the Sophist tradition, which he contrasts with the moralism of Socrates and Plato. In this episode, we discuss The History of the Peloponnesian War, Thucydides' great contribution to world literature and history.

John Locke, Voltaire, John Stuart Mill and Bertrand Russell are herein credited with advancing the cause of tolerance. Popper makes the case for tolerance following Voltaire who argued from fallibility that we should stand ready to forgive others around us - and therefore be tolerant for humans make errors. We discuss what "interpretation" meant to Bacon (it is quite the opposite to what it means today to most people most of the time) as he speaks of interpreting nature. So does this make him an early Popperian? Socrates "maieutic" (the "Socratic method" - his means of elucidating knowledge by the asking of careful questions) seems to come in two versions: that designed to uncover absolute truth and that with more of an emphasis on correcting errors. In this fourth part we are really getting a deep lesson in philosophy from Karl Popper himself through his summaries and analysis of the greats in the Greek and British/European philosophical traditions.

The 20th century English/American philosopher Alfred North Whitehead once famously said “All of philosophy is a series of footnotes to Plato.” Though a highly contested claim, no matter where you land on it, the quote does at least cause one to consider the inescapable presence of Plato. Who was this follower of Socrates who founded a school after which schools across the globe are still named today - the academy? And why is it that he is considered amongst the trinity of foundational philosophers in the western world? Did he simply ride the coattails of his great teacher Socrates, pulling from him most of the theories he is well known for today? Or is Plato truly a giant among philosophers? Unquestionably, Plato's influence lives on today. His great work The Republic is a master class in philosophical thinking and methodology, and one of the most widely read works of philosophy. His account of the death of Socrates preserved for us the story of the man who would be ultimately seen as the founder of western philosophy. Yet despite the acknowledgement of his influence on philosophy, some dismiss his theories as antiquated and out of touch for what our current context calls for.

They speak about chapter 10 of Karl Popper's The Open Society and Its Enemies, the nature and often well-meaning origins of totalitarianism, the fall of Athens to Sparta, the betrayal of Socrates and Athenian democracy by Plato and the oligarchical class, and the one factor that Popper had neglected until then in his analysis – happiness, specifically the tyrannical dangers of trying to make people happy. Elyse Hargreaves is an ardent student of Popper, passionate about advancing the cause of the open society; for freedom, rationality and humanitarianism. Upon finding Popper in her early 20's, she has since been determined to popularise his ideas in whatever medium she can. Since then, she has released a free audiobook version of Popper's Conjectures and Refutations on YouTube which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtUn6tOI13ZF4iEhzYM0Dvg and has recently released an audiobook version of Rafe Champion's Guide to the Open Society and Its Enemies which you can find on Audible here: https://www.audible.com/pd/A-Guide-to-the-Open-Society-and-Its-Enemies-Audiobook/B0BF2MZ4FJ?qid=  Support via Patreon – https://www.patreon.com/jedleahenry Support via PayPal – https://www.paypal.me/jrleahenry Shop – https://shop.spreadshirt.com.au/JLH-shop/ Support via Bitcoin - 31wQMYixAJ7Tisp773cSvpUuzr2rmRhjaW Website – The Popperian Podcast — Jed Lea-Henry Libsyn – The Popperian Podcast (libsyn.com) Youtube – The Popperian Podcast - YouTube Twitter – https://twitter.com/jedleahenry RSS - https://popperian-podcast.libsyn.com/rss *** Underlying artwork by Arturo Espinosa

Before I get into the meat of the topic, I need to pause and wish all of my fellow veterans a happy veterans day, And I cannot forget my Marine Corps Brothers and Sisters and wish them a very happy birthday. It has been a wonderful 247 years since the founding of the Marine Corps in Philadelphia's Tun Tavern in 1775. Today we are talking about moving followers to leaders. With National Holiday Veterans Day two days away as I write this, I found it fitting to revisit a past interview I conducted with Capt. L. David Marquet from the United States Submarine Force Since I first interviewed David about his book Turn The Ship Around,  hundreds of thousands of readers have been inspired by former Navy captain David Marquet's true story. Many have applied his insights to their organizations, creating workplaces where everyone takes responsibility for their actions, where followers grow to become leaders, and where happier teams drive dramatically better results.Like many officers, David was a Naval Academy graduate. He took pride in his accomplishments, and as an experienced officer, when selected for the highly competitive position of submarine command, he was thrilled. David was trained to give orders in the traditional Master and Commander leadership model. When he was allowed to be the skipper of a brand nuclear-powered submarine, he took the opportunity to learn everything about it. However, David faced a new wrinkle when he was shifted to the Santa Fe, an underperforming boat that was dead last in the pacific fleet. Facing the high-stress environment of a sub where there's little margin for error, he was determined to reverse the trends he found on the Santa Fe: poor morale, poor performance, and the worst retention rate in the fleet. Marquet ran into trouble when he unknowingly gave an impossible order, and his crew tried to follow it anyway. He said it was like telling someone driving a 4-speed to the car to shift it into 5th. When he asked why the answer was: "Because you told me to." David realized that while he had been trained for a different submarine, his crew had been trained to do what they were told - a deadly combination.That's when Marquet flipped the leadership model and pushed for leadership at every level. Turn the Ship Around! Reveals how the Santa Fe skyrocketed from worst to first in the fleet by challenging the US Navy's traditional leader-follower approach. Struggling against his instincts to take control, he achieved the vastly more powerful model of giving power to his subordinates and creating leaders.Before long, each member of Marquet's crew became a leader and assumed responsibility for everything he did, from clerical tasks to crucial combat decisions. The team became wholly engaged, contributing their total intellectual capacity every day. Santa Fe set records for performance, morale, and retention. And over the next decade, a highly disproportionate number of the officers of the Santa Fe were selected to become submarine commanders."Organizations should reward risk-takers, even if they fall short once in a while. Let them know that promotions and glory go to innovators and pioneers, not to stand-patters who fear controversy and avoid trying to improve anything."As he recounts, in Turn, the Ship Around!: A True Story of Turning Followers into Leaders the opportunity wasn't without its irony.I took away from this interview how David moved an entire boat from a "can I" to a "May I" mentality. This may not seem like a massive difference to you; however, it is enormous in the traditional Navy and the high-stakes world of the submarine service. Today, young men and women are preparing to fight the next war, and Our military has spent much time and money preparing for tomorrow's battles with antiquated methods. We continue to invest in the latest technologies and systems, but, as we all know, technology is nothing but a facilitator. The people operating the equipment give us the fighting edge, and we have lost our way to helping them grow.And I see the parallel between how emergency management uses decade-old methods to train current and future emergency managers and military training to fight the last battle. There are technologies that we need to embrace by looking at thought leaders like Sean Griffin from Disaster Tech, whose innovations in training and AI are making strides in how we train for the next disaster. However, we also need a pathway for the next generation of emergency management leaders. That is what this series is truly about. Socrates said, "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." That is the key to leadership. It understands yourself first, seeking to improve and then using that knowledge to shape the organization.Leaders must free their subordinates to fulfill their talents to the utmost. However, most obstacles that limit people's potential are set in motion by the leader and are rooted in their fears, ego needs, and unproductive habits. A transformation can take shape when leaders explore deep within their thoughts and feelings to understand themselves.That understanding shifts the leader's perspective on all life interactions, and they approach leadership differently. As a result, the leader's choices differ from those they made when blinded by fear, ego, and habit. More importantly, others perceive the person as more authentic, reinforcing the new behavior. This can vastly improve how people respond to their leaders and makes their loyalty to the source of gratification more likely:This loyalty transforms the organization from just a place to work to a sense of ownership, a team, and a culture that gives their lives meaning and purpose.Leaders must be willing to put the organization's performance ahead of their egos.The command-and-control approach is far from the most efficient way to tap people's intelligence and skills.In any organization where employees take ownership, you have one with core values of leaders putting their team or "followers" first.In a world that is constantly moving, staying still is near-certain death.Organizations should reward risk-takers, even if they fall short once in a while. It is scary for para-military organizations to allow that to happen. We have all seen the rewards go to the bureaucrat, which does not challenge the status quo. Kelly McKinney once said that you are not doing your job if you don't get fired for doing what is right. Let that sink in for a second. We must let our team members know that promotions and glory go to innovators and pioneers, not to stand-patters who fear controversy and avoid trying to improve anything. That's the key to keeping an organization vital, growing, and successful. Stasis is death to any organization. Evolve or die: It's the law of life. Rules that made sense when they were written may well be obsolete. Make them extinct, too.The primary reasons people leave an organization have nothing to do with money.However the economy is doing, a challenge for leaders in the twenty-first century is attracting and retaining not just employees but the best employees— and, more importantly, how to motivate them so that they work with passion, energy, and enthusiasm. But very few people with brains, skills, and initiative appear. The timeless challenge in the real world is to help less-talented people transcend their limitations.Most systems reward micromanagement which only disempowers subordinates and removes ownership and accountability.managers are told to delegate authority and empower subordinates, but they are expected never to utter the words "I don't know." So they are on constant alert, riding herd on every detail. In short, the system rewards micromanagement by superiors— at the cost of disempowering those below.Organizations commanded by a micromanager create a sub-culture of micromanagement. Individual initiative is the exception, not the norm and the people who exhibit it get beaten down quickly and either quit or become cynical.No one is capable of making every decision.While there are infinite ways to make decisions, most organizations create an ineffective system of rules and policies that attempt to prepare for every possible contingency.The thing about rules and policies is that they become very hard to fix once they are put in place. Both the people who put them in place and those whose job it is to exercise them become highly motivated advocates of the policies. Even if the policies initially made sense, they became hard to change. When you try to change something but can't, you start becoming a tenant and stop being an owner.Ownership dramatically increases the odds of success.They will handle the details if you can find the right people, set the direction, and give them autonomy. In fact, not only will they take the details, but they will insist on it because they are owners.Think about it, when was the last time you cared about something profoundly and outsourced the details? Never.I saw this quote and needed to use it at some point. Shane Parish published this on his website. One way to tell if you're working with owners and renters is whether they insist upon a sufficient level of autonomy. Renters never want it. Owners can't live without it. Autonomy comes from influence, power, and direction. You must be kept up with bureaucracy and management.Instead of rules, great organizations use principles and allow for exceptions and judgment. They train people to think and make judgments on their own. If you need to know when it makes sense to opt-out of a rule or policy, you shouldn't be in charge of executing it.Sponsors Get full access to The Emergency Management Network at emnetwork.substack.com/subscribe

Though less well-known than his contemporary, Demosthenes, Plutarch wants us to remember him as a political leader who did the best he could with a bad situation. Key Vices and VirtuesBravery (ἀνδρεῖος) - Phocion tempers it with caution, but leads in person up to and past the age of 80!Justice (δικαιοσύνη) - Phocion's realism that Athens does not have the power to resist the Macedonians makes him a great, if still ignored, advocate for justice. He wants to preserve the peace and harmony of the city, while receiving as fair a deal as he can for Athens, which will be conquered by an army four times in his life. Moderation (σωφροσύνη) - Sometimes also translated as “prudence,” this is not only the virtue that keeps Phocion from accepting any bribes, but also the virtue he tries to give to the Athenian people in their erratic behavior to their Macedonian overlords. His wife also practices this virtue, but his son never learns it from either parent (cf. Plato's Meno which examines whether or not virtue can be taught and looks at famous leaders whose sons did not have the same virtues as their fathers). Austerity (αὐστηρόν) - Not one of Aristotle's virtues, but one Plutarch takes pains to highlight. Whether it's walking barefoot, wearing fewer clothes than necessary, or controlling even things like laughter and crying, Phocion struck everyone as toughest first on himself, and then only secondarily hard on others. Simplicity (ἀφελείᾳ) - While the ancient Greeks (and Romans) never considered poverty a virtue as the Christians later did, there was a respect for the simplicity of knowing your limits. This knowledge of what is necessary for life makes Phocion (and his wife, see section 19) reliable and incorruptible. Support the show

Well, yes, for the reasons you think, but not only those reasons and for one infinitely more important reason.Humanity is facing some enormous problems and to solve these big problems will require deep thought. Not sound bites and unconsidered opinions being blurted out in every news cycle, but deep thought. Big issues require deep thought. And deep thought requires impulse control and patience. Both of which are in short supply in our culture. Our inability to control our impulses because of our Pavlovian reaction to every notification, phone call, text, and email is creating massive attention in our lives and culture. The result is our diminishing ability to sit with an issue and really think it through. Deep thought. We need it culturally and we need it individually. A few people need it to come up with the solutions to the biggest problems facing our age, everyone else needs it in order to accept and champion the best solutions. If you want to change the world, become more patient.

This week's Cracking Open Podcast episode with Shaka Senghor is so effing good! (I actually wanted to write the F word, but I still feel a bit scared doing it – hello old Catholic schoolgirl guilt!)There are so many gems in this episode but one of my biggest takeaways is the importance of standing in your truth.Shaka shares his story with us about his own reckoning and realization that he initially wasn't living his truth. Instead, he was living out an interpretation of his life rooted in his trauma. This trauma-informed life eventually led him into a 19-year imprisonment for 2nd-degree murder, seven of those years which were in solitary confinement. These dire circumstances would understandably crush most people's spirits. But Shaka was able to use this experience to uncover his own truth, envision a different future for himself, and hit the reset button on his true destiny.I don't think there are many people in this world who can say that they were able to find their ultimate freedom in a system that is designed to take every freedom away from you. But then again, there aren't many people like Shaka Senghor.The deep vulnerability that a life of imprisonment creates forced Shaka into prolonged states of introspection and contemplation. In solitary confinement, he found his passion for reading and writing, and was particularly taken with Socrates' words, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” While examining his own life, he realized that he wanted to reclaim his authentic self, and vowed that going forward he would only live in the world in a way that honored his truth. Shaka asked himself the question, “How did I get here?”  And it was this question that changed his life and ultimately became a catalyst for getting him out of prison.In the decade since Shaka's release from prison, he has garnered multiple awards and fellowships, has lectured at universities, and has both started and worked with nonprofits seeking to lift people up. Shaka has also visited the White House, been interviewed by Trevor Noah and Oprah Winfrey, given TED talks, and published two amazing books – Writing my Wrongs: Life, Death, and Redemption in an American Prison, and Letters to the Sons of Society: A Father's Invitation to Love, Honesty, and Freedom.I hope that today's episode inspires you to have some deeper conversations with yourself about living your own truth. Here are some questions to contemplate:Are you honoring your truth?Are you living a life based on your trauma, or on a story that does not serve you anymore?How can you step out of your secrets into an examined life of truth?Love,MollyLearn more about Shaka Senghor herePurchase Shaka's book Letters to the Sons of Society herePurchase Shaka's book Writing My Wrongs hereFind Shaka on Social:InstagramTwitterFacebookLearn more about Molly Carroll hereGet your free Body Emotion MapFind me on Social:

— Have you thought about meeting your therapist outdoors and walk together while the therapeutic processes unfold? If not, it's time for an added natural healing component! Nature! This is not a new practice method. In fact, it is a very ancient concept. Aristotle and Socrates famously walked during lectures. Sigmund Freud often walked with patients during the analysis process. Although it is unknown why this form of teaching and therapy fell out of fashion, it is finally seeing a resurgence in popularity and utility. Not only do we have increasing evidence of the effectiveness of walking with your therapist, there are many practical reasons that this form of therapy may be right for you. Exercising, especially walking, provides well-established cardiovascular benefits and the incorporation of movement with the therapeutic conversation increases the integrative capacity of each therapy session. In other words, moving while talking makes short work of problem solving, gaining insight, and making positive changes in your life! Valeria interviews Layla Niemann  — She is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with Waypoint Wellness Center located in Huntsville, Alabama.  She earned her MSW at Alabama A & M University. Since starting out in the Social Services field in 2001, she has worked in the areas of Child Welfare, Child Forensic Interviewing, Hospice, Bereavement, Adoptions, and Geriatrics. Ms. Niemann enjoys weaving her myriad experiences into her clinical practice serving adults and children with special interest in PTSD, OCD, ADHD, Autism, and Sleep Disorders. Her approach is rooted in the belief that positive therapeutic relationships have the power to change individuals and the world around them. Ms. Niemann works diligently for racial and gender equality in her professional and personal life. She is a strong ally for LGBTQ+ individuals. She provides an affirmative approach and utilizes empowerment strategies throughout treatment. She is also a neurodiversity-affirmative therapist. Ms. Niemann is nationally certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. She is trained in multiple therapy modalities including CBT, mindfulness, and Cognitive Processing Therapy, among others. Ms. Niemann believes the power of movement and the outdoors to be profoundly healing. The bilateral movement of walking is particularly useful combined with therapeutic conversation. This approach is a wonderful way to fastrack problem-solving, getting unstuck, or working through a complex personal problem. She began to notice the benefit of walking with her clients when working in assisted living facilities and skilled nursing homes. She has now expanded this practice to walking with clients in her private practice. Ms. Niemann enjoys spending time in the outdoors with her family, fostering with Huntsville Animal Services, playing music, backpacking, and running.

This is a podcast dedicated to the poet Lucretius, who wrote "On The Nature of Things," the only complete presentation of Epicurean philosophy left to us from the ancient world. Each week we'll walk you through the ancient Epicurean texts, and we'll discuss how Epicurean philosophy can apply to you today. If you find the Epicurean worldview attractive, we invite you to join us in the study of Epicurus at EpicureanFriends.com, where you will find a discussion thread for each of our podcast episodes and many other topics. We're now in the process of a series of podcasts intended to provide a general overview of Epicurean philosophy based on the organizational structure employed by Norman DeWitt in his book "Epicurus and His Philosophy."This week we discuss a series of Points and Counterpoints which Norman DeWitt describes as "True Opinions / False Opinions" about Epicurus:True Opinions - False OpinionsEpicurus' Place In Greek Philosophy:True: Epicurus came immediately after Plato (idealism; absolutism) and Pyrrho (the skeptic). Platonism and Skepticism were among Epicurus' chief abominations.False: Epicurus taught in response to Stoicism. (False because Epicurean philosophy was fully developed before Zeno began teaching Stoicism.)Epicurus' Attitude Toward Learning:True: Epicurus was well educated and a trained thinker.False: Epicurus was an ignoramus and an enemy of all culture.Epicurus' Goal For Himself And His Work:True: Epicurus was not only a philosopher but a moral reformer rebelling against his teachers.False: Epicurus was nothing more than a copycat who was ungrateful to his teachers.Epicurus' Place in Greek Scientific Thought:True: Epicurus was returning to the Ionian tradition of thought which had been interrupted by Socrates and Plato. Epicurus was an Anti-Platonist and a penetrating critic of Platonism.False: Epicurean scientific thought simply copied Democritus.Epicurus' Role As a Systematizer:True: As with Herbert Spencer or Auguste Comte, Epicurus was attempting a synthesis and critique of all prior philosophical thought.False: Epicurus was a sloppy and unorganized thinker whose system-building is not worth attention.Epicurus' Dogmatism:True: Epicurus' strength was that he promulgated a dogmatic philosophy, actuated by a passion for inquiry to find certainty, and a detestation of skepticism, which he imputed even to Plato.False: Epicurus' demerit was that he promulgated a dogmatic philosophy, because he renounced inquiry.Epicurus' View of Truth:True: Epicurus exalted Nature as the norm of truth, revolting against Plato, who had preached “reason” as the norm and considered “Reason” to have a divine existence of its own. Epicurus studied and taught the nature and use of sensations, and the role in determining that which we consider to be true.False: Epicurus was an empiricist in the modern sense, declaring sensation to be the only source of knowledge and all sensations to be “true.”Epicurus' Method For Determining Truth:True: Epicurus taught reasoning chiefly by deduction. For example, atoms cannot be observed directly; their existence and properties must be determined by deduction, and the principles thereby deduced serve as standards for assessing truth. In this Epicurus was adopting the procedures of Euclid and partying company with both Plato and the Ionian scientists.False: Epicurus was a strict empiricist and taught reasoning mainly by induction.Epicurus' As A Man of ActionTrue: Epicurus was the first missionary philosophy. Epicurus was by disposition combative and he was by natural gifts a leader, organizer, and campaigner.False: Epicurus was effeminate and a moral invalid; a passivist who taught retirement from and non-engagement with the world.Epicurus' View of Self-InterestTrue: Epicureanism was the first world philosophy, acceptable to both Greek and barbarian. Epicurus taught that we should make friends wherever possible.False: Epicurus was a totally egoistic hedonist ruled solely by a narrow view of his own self-interest.Epicurus Is Of Little Relevance to the Development of ChristianityTrue: Epicurus reoriented emphasis from political virtues to social virtues, and developed a wider viewpoint applicable to all humanity.False: Epicurus was an enemy of all religion and there is no trace of his influence in the “New Testament.”

How good are you at these?For centuries and millennia, the wise people of every culture under the sun have sought the counsel of silence. Pythagoras, the Greek philosopher and mathematician, wrote: “Learn to be silent. Let your quiet mind listen and absorb.” Writing about the importance of silence and solitude, Blaise Pascal, the seventeenth-century French philosopher, scientist, mathematician, and writer, wrote: “All of man's miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.” Franz Kafka, the Czech-Jewish novelist, philosopher, and poet, wrote: “You need not leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, simply wait. You need not even wait, just learn to become quiet, and still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice; it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”Learn to be quiet. Learn to be still.

What Is Wisdom?What Made the Wise Men WISE? - Matthew KellyGet Matthew's 60 Second Wisdom delivered to your inbox: https://www.matthewkelly.com/subscribeVideo Transcript:“I have always been fascinated with the story in the Bible about the Magi following the star. For years I have spent hours reading and reflecting upon this story.It is first of all important to acknowledge that it was not the chief priests, or even the high priest of that year, who recognized the signs that accompanied the coming of Jesus. It was, rather, the three simple Magi. The star rose in the east, and they fixed their gaze upon the star and followed it with unwavering persistence.One Christmas years back, I was driving past a church on the East Coast of America and outside was one of those message boards. It read, “Wise men still seek Jesus today.” That simple message had an impact on me and renewed my interest in the story. My reflection leads me to ask these questions: “What was the difference between the Magi and everybody else on the planet at the time that Jesus made his entrance into the world?” “What was the difference between the three wise men and the chief priests?”When someone shares a remarkable insight or a rare piece of knowledge, you will sometimes hear people say, “Oh, isn't she wise!” Yet there is an enormous difference between knowledge and wisdom. The chief priests had knowledge. They knew everything there was to know about the coming Messiah. They could have recited every passage from their sacred scriptures that related to the coming of the Messiah, including the place of his birth. The Magi didn't have anywhere near as much knowledge as the chief priests did regarding the coming of the Christ, but what they did know they lived by.They only knew one thing. They knew if they followed the star, it would lead them to the Chosen One. Therein lies the key to wisdom.  Wisdom is truth lived. And that is why we call the Magi “the wise men” and the chief priests “the chief priests.”Wisdom is not the amassing of knowledge. Google has plenty of information, but it has no wisdom. Wisdom is truth lived.”If you have not read LIFE IS MESSY, order your copy today: https://amzn.to/2TTgZKn Subscribe to Matthew's YouTube Channel today! https://www.youtube.com/c/MatthewKellyAuthor/featured?sub_confirmation=1https://www.matthewkelly.comGet Matthew's 60 Second Wisdom delivered to your inbox: https://www.matthewkelly.com/subscribe The Best Version of Yourself and 60 Second Wisdom are registered trademarks.#MatthewKelly #BestVersionOfYourself #BestVersion #ThoughtLeader
