I've been going strong for two years, working tirelessly on Thinker vs. Speaker, and it's time for me to shift gears and focus on working smarter, not harder. I'll be delving into the reasons behind this choice, including the need for personal growth, self-care, and how it aligns with the podcast's mission. This break is all about making Thinker vs. Speaker an even better experience for you, our loyal listeners. So, don't worry! I'm not disappearing entirely. I'll still be recording new episodes and working behind the scenes to bring you quality content. Stay tuned, because I'll be sharing updates, insights, and more during this break. Remember, taking care of oneself is essential, and I hope you understand and support my decision. Thank you for being part of this incredible journey with me.

As a bonus, it turns out that a good joke or shared laugh can foster trust and productivity among colleagues!Now, here's something you might find intriguing: burnout comes in three forms - the thinker, the feeler, and the doer. Each form feeds off different behaviors and mindsets, from constant worrying to an unbalanced focus on productivity. Sharon guides us through the maze of identifying one's burnout style and adopting practical strategies to manage it. We also delve into how non-work life stressors can contribute to burnout and the dangers of tying self-worth to productivity.Finally, we wrap up our chat with a lively game designed to simulate stress, followed by a heartwarming discussion on coping mechanisms and stress relievers. Sharon and Heather spill the beans on some personal, humorous stories, proving that laughter truly is the best medicine. They also give us a sneak peek into their podcast, Decode Your Burnout, which explores burnout styles and offers help to those struggling. By the end of our time together, we promise you'll have a newfound understanding of preventing burnout, creating effective self-care routines, and using humor to create a healthier work environment.

I love talking women into swapping the scale for biofeedback. Say adios to the scale and chains of entrapment, and hello to some mind-body connection! This swap is paramount for your empowered eating journey. However, there is one major mindset shift that has to come with it, and that is one of PSYCHOLOGICAL FLEXIBILITY. If we pull in the perfectionistic, all-or-nothing thinking - we are missing the point of what the connection is doing in the first place. In today's episode, I am sharing with you the psychological flexibility formula, so you can learn biofeedback, without getting stuck in all-or-nothing mentality.

Diva Diaz shares a perspective on neurodiversity when living with autism, OCD, ADD or ADHD. Diva discourages trying to fit into a box or ‘masking', a common practice where people disguise behaviours and their true self to appear “normal” and feel accepted by society. Diva always knew her brain worked differently; she could never do things in a linear way, and she found tasks that were easy for others extremely difficult. As a child, she'd want to contemplate the universe rather than play, learning to mask behaviours to appear “normal.” Diagnosed with high-functioning autism in adulthood, everything then made sense. There is much to learn from taking a different perspective to try to "fit" in.

Every time I get the chance to speak to Susan the conversation just flows and her passion and enthusiasm for the game of golf just oozes out of her On today's show we discussed: What is POINT A golf and WHY is it so important? How we fall into the trap of trying to ‘fix' our previous shot The dangers of linking one shot to another when every shot is a UNIQUE moment in time The ‘Thinker' and the ‘Doer' and why we need to understand the difference The BURDEN of the PAST The myth of ‘problem solving' Can you control your golf swing? Can you control where the ball goes? The myth of control and how this creates so much instability With Point A there is NO PAST, NO FUTURE just this unique moment in time Why we need to be absorbed in the PICTURE of the shot and how these pictures influence our movements. How our PICTURES inform our body how to move Every shot has a different FORMULA How Point A can give you a different perspective on the golf course.

After briefly discussing Epicureanism, the moral philosophy of Epicurus, Ryan transitions to Aristotle's moral philosophy—which is widely understood as a “character, or virtue, ethic.” "One of the most intriguing and thought-provoking aspects of Aristotle's ethics is the idea that morality, virtue, and happiness are solely based on acting, doing, living, and being. It is not enough to talk about morality or to think about morality; one must enact justice and embody the good. For Aristotle, talking about virtue doesn't make you good; being virtuous makes you good.”About Ryan, Host of Thinker Sensitive:Ryan Ragozine is the host of Thinker Sensitive. He is passionate about ecumenical dialogue, inter-religious dialogue, and worldview engagement. He is a major proponent of civil discourse, free thinking, free speech, and ethical communication. Ryan has always been preoccupied with big ideas and big questions. He holds a B.A. in Theology and an M.A. in Philosophy. While in seminary, Ryan had the privilege of studying under Michael Peterson, editor and author of several philosophy of religion texts published by Cambridge, Oxford, and the University of Notre Dame—most notably in the subcategories of religion and science, the problem of evil, and C.S. Lewis scholarship. Ryan and his wife are huge advocates of Christian hospitality, running a house church that welcomed people from all different backgrounds and belief systems for about five years before eventually taking over at Thinker Sensitive.Links: Website: https://www.thinkersensitive.com YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@thinkersensitive1752 Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/thinkersensitive Instagram Account: https://www.instagram.com/thinkersensitive/ Twitter Handle: https://twitter.com/ThinkerSen
For Ben M. Freeman, Jewish Pride is a movement long overdue. In his first book, Freeman discussed the need for a Jewish Pride movement similar to ones other minority groups have had. His latest book, Reclaiming our Story: The Pursuit of Jewish Pride, goes even deeper, delving into the impact of Jew-hate on Jews, the long history of internalized anti-Jewishness, and how to reclaim our identity and break the cycle. Host Steven Shalowitz sits down with Freeman to discuss his new book, the three types of internalized anti-Jewishness, and the perils of letting the non-Jewish world define our identity.
Let's recall our initial outline of areas of interest we are using to compare and contrast the Zen life with our usual preoccupations. To refresh your memory, they were, and are: — Lifestyle: Monastic versus Householder — Physical: Zazen versus the four Cardinal Postures — Biological: Meditative breathing versus everyday situations— Psychological: Shikantaza versus ordinary attention In this segment we will take up the last of the four — attention — the third disposition, after posture and breath, of Matsuoka Roshi's simplified model of zazen, Zen's upright seated meditation. One of his repeat instructions was that, “When the posture, breath, and attention all come together in a unified way, this is the real zazen.” Which implies that we may think we are practicing zazen, when we are not. And what determines whether we are, or not, is, mainly, our attention. We can be sitting in the natural, upright posture; and following the natural, full breathing cycle, all the while paying attention to the wrong thing; or, perhaps better to say, not really paying attention at all, in the Zen sense. So, let's examine what we mean by “attention,” and later, how it works in zazen. In marketing and design circles, attention is regarded as a kind of commodity, upon which we may place a value. That billboard on the expressway attracts a certain amount of attention from the drivers passing by. The owner of the billboard can charge a certain amount of rent, based on the number of “eyeballs” exposed to its message, the client's message. In today's post-print media market, we are saturated with electronic media competing for our attention, seeking to maximize the amount of “clicks” or “hits” a message gets online, as well as on “legacy” or “traditional” media channels such as film, broadcast television, radio, and print publishing. So one way to think about paying attention in Zen, granted that it is a choice we make, is to ask ourselves: What is the most important thing to pay attention to? Of course, I can hear you responding with the hip and flip, too-clever-by-far, all-too-predictable trope: “Everything.” Like the hotdog joke — the Zen master will have one with everything. Which, seriously, raises the question of whether that is even possible. Actually paying attention to everything simultaneously, that is. Master Dogen, in his seminal tract on zazen, Fukanzazengi—Principles of Seated Meditation, at one point says: Now that you know the most important thing in Buddhism how can you be satisfied with the transient world?Our bodies are like dew on the grass and our lives like a flash of lightning Vanishing in a moment This lands about two-thirds of the way though the text, and by then he has said maybe a hundred or so things about Buddhism, so it begs the question, “Which of these is the most important?” But I think we can safely surmise that it has something to do with attention. The legendary Master Bodhidharma, credited with bringing the direct practice of Buddha's meditation to China at the end of the 5th century CE, taught that it is not necessary — or should not be necessary — to do zazen, but that we have only to “grasp the vital principle.” Of course, for most of us, we have to burn through a lot of zazen to be able to grasp the vital principle of Zen. Notable exceptions include Master Huineng, the sixth in the Chinese succession in the 7th century, who underwent a profound experience of insight without benefit of a teacher, or any prior practice. This rare event is traditionally attributed to “merit accumulated in past lives.” But such prodigies are few and far between. My theory is that the main reason that most of us have to sit in zazen to such an extreme extent is that the load of ignorance, personal opinions, and rationalizations we carry on our shoulders has accumulated to that extent. In design and art circles, we speak of two different fundamental kinds of processes working with material media. One is “additive”: lumping clay onto an armature to build a bust of Napoleon, for example; the other is “subtractive”: chipping away the stone to reveal Rodin's “The Thinker.” I find zazen to be mostly the latter. We are chipping away at our own ignorant ideas and preconceptions of reality to get to the bottom of things. And it's a long way down. So what we have to pay attention to is, or may be, “everything,” in one sense; but by taking one thing at a time. And there are a lot of things in the pile we have accumulated. “Pile,” by the way, is one meaning of “skandha” — a “heap,” or “aggregate” — of many like things. Which gets a mention early in the Heart Sutra chanted frequently in most Zen wheelhouses around the world. O Shariputra, form is no other than Emptiness; Emptiness no other than formFeeling, thought, impulse, and consciousness are likewise Emptiness So there you have it. The four aggregates of sentient experience of which we can be conscious — the form, or appearance, of things; the feelings, both tactile and emotional, that we experience on both instinctual and intentional levels; the stream-of-conscious thoughts relentlessly emitted by the brain; and the underlying impulses triggered both subliminally and on the edges of awareness. And finally, consciousness itself, can become conscious of consciousness, “form and reflection” beholding each other, in Tozan Ryokai's memorable phrase from Hokyo Zammai—Precious Mirror Samadhi. Back to Bodhidharma, who refers to this same point in an oblique manner: The great Buddhist saint went on to say that if and when we do zazen — in spite of his reluctance to claim the necessity of doing so — there are four basic aspects of ordinary awareness that we can observe, or pay attention to: the breath; physical sensations; emotional sensations, or mood swings; and finally, the machinations of the mind: our various thoughts or concepts, about everything and nothing. A four-pointed model. I think one of Bodhidharma's main points is that in observing the breath, we note that it comes and goes momentarily — we never breathe the same breath twice. Likewise for physical, emotional, and conceptual phenomena — they are ever-changing, by nature impermanent. Well, “Duh!” you say. But these are four of the main aspects of what it is to be a sentient being — those we most associate with our personal identity: This is MY breath; I am hot or cold, in pain, or comfortable; this is MY moodiness; and these are MY ideas. And yet all four are essentially ephemeral, like “a bubble on a stream,” to borrow from Shakyamuni himself. So where does this pervading sense of continuity come from, this “persistence of vision,” and all the other senses? And what are we to make of this contrarian stanza from Hsinhsinming—Trust in Mind, by Master Sosan: To move in the One WayDo not reject even the world of senses and ideasIndeed accepting them fullyIs identical with true enlightenment As I discuss in excruciating detail in the chapter on “Deconstructing Your Senses in the Most Natural Way,” from my first book, ”The Original Frontier” (I know, I know, it is weird to be quoting from your own writing), as we settle into the relatively extreme stillness of zazen — fixed gaze and all — a kind of profound sensory adaptation begins to set in, which is also referenced in the Heart Sutra, just after the bit about the skandhas: Given Emptiness [there are] no eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind;No seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching;No realm of sight; no realm of mind-consciousness So now we are getting a clue as to what to pay attention to in zazen. And the implication that things are not exactly as they seem to be, sensory-wise. If we simply sit still enough for long enough — and it is anything but simple — everything changes. Through the natural process of paying strict attention to the senses, the process of adaptation takes us through what is sometimes referred to as samatha, or samadhi — calming or stilling the mind; and eventually, and hopefully, vipassana, kensho or satori in Japanese; or what is referred to as “spiritual insight.” Which, by definition, is different from, but inclusive of, normal sight. Do you “see” what I mean? Then the Sutra goes on to say: And so no ignorance; [and] no end of ignorance;No sickness, old age and death; no end of sickness old age and death Whoa! Here is a whiplash-inducing claim. Transcending the senses — as we ordinarily experience and interpret them — takes a seemingly sudden turn, eliminating the very ignorance that has been bedeviling us all along. It also magically relieves us of the burden of the three main marks of dukkha, or sentient suffering: sickness, old age, and death. This challenges our credulity. That those things we fear most in life: the loss of life itself, through the random crapshoot of contracting one of the innumerable fatal illnesses threatening us; or the natural process of aging out of life, just as we age out of our professions and familial responsibilities. Is it all just a figment of our imaginations? In summation, we are all paying full attention every moment of our waking day. But, like the proverbial monkey jumping from limb to limb of the tree of consciousness, it seems random and pointless. The challenge, and the question, becomes what is the most important thing in the flux-and-flow of daily life to pay attention to, and more precisely, how? I would submit that we begin with accepting, and even embracing, the flux-and-flow itself. Master Nagarjuna, 14th in the Indian succession, where Bodhidharma was 28th, said something to the effect that enlightenment entails “seeing into the flux of arising, abiding, and decaying.” And it seems to me that that “abiding” piece is one source of our confusion. If anything is abiding, it is not for long, not in geological time, nor in the quantum realm. So a big part of what we are observing, or paying attention to, is change itself, the passing pageantry of life. I would suggest that, as a benchmark, simply paying more attention to posture and, more pointedly, your breath, will help extend the halo effect of your meditation into every situation you confront in daily life. It may also begin to bring home the deeper meaning of the seemingly trivial and mundane activities which otherwise amount to distractions. There is much more to say about attention, of course, as there is about posture and breath. But for the sake of simplicity, and the practical constraints of this podcast, I will leave that to your imagination and to your discovery in zazen. And I will leave you with a final caveat concerning the nature of the realization of insight, as well as the limits of our imagination, from Hsinhsinming: With a single stroke we are freed from bondage Nothing clings to us and we hold to nothingAll is empty; clear; self-illuminating; with no exertion of the mind's powerHere, thought, feeling, knowledge, and imagination are of no value For more on Soto Zen, its meaning and application to our modern life and practice, please check out our online and in-person schedules on the Atlanta Soto Zen Center website, and register for my Master Class on the Soto Zen liturgical verses.
“But the fact is, the reality is all grey area. All of it. There are very few black and white answers and no solutions without second-order consequences. This fundamental truth is easy to grasp in theory and hard to use in practice, every day. It takes a substantial deprogramming to realize that life is all grey, that all reality lies on a continuum. This is why quantitative and scale-based thinking is so important. But most don't realize that quantitative thinking isn't really about math; it's about the idea that The dose makes the poison.” --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/antonio-myers4/support

Welcome to What Matters Now, a weekly podcast exploration into one key issue shaping Israel and the Jewish World — right now. This week, the Knesset passed the first contentious judicial overhaul bill into law. So, six months after getting perspective from philosopher Dr. Micah Goodman in the inaugural What Matters Now episode, I went back for more. “Two constitutional instincts have been unleashed and are clashing with each other: The Israelis who want to be empowered through government versus the Israelis who want to be protected from government. I think that's what's happening in the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and all over Israel as we're talking,” says Goodman, the author of the best-selling “Catch-67” and “The Wondering Jew.” His book, “The Last Words of Moses” recently hit shelves in English. For much of the past six months, Goodman has been performing a unique kind of reserve duty: speaking with people from all sides of the judicial overhaul conflict, from teams of politicians during the negotiations at the President's Residence — at the request of President Isaac Herzog — to squadrons of pilots who are on the brink of refusing service -- again, at the request of the IDF. In keeping with this Tisha B'Av week, this is an in-depth and quite sober conversation. But, as you will hear, Goodman is, as always, a dedicated optimist. “I think the cynics will determine what happens tomorrow and next week, but I think it's the optimists who will determine what will happen next year and two years from now,” he says. So this week, we ask philosopher Dr. Micah Goodman, what matters now. What Matters Now podcasts are available for download on iTunes, TuneIn, Pocket Casts, Stitcher, PlayerFM or wherever you get your podcasts.

It's easy to believe there's no real limit to the possibilities we can think up.We've got new ideas and concepts coming into the world, like ChatGPT and sending people to the moon (or the ocean floor) as tourists. And who would have imagined these things 10, 20, 30 years ago?Somebody did. It takes big thinking to spark ideas that can (sometimes drastically) change lives and even the world. But what exactly is big thinking all about? What goes into it? That's what my new book She Thinks Big is all about, and today you'll get a few tidbits to get you started thinking big right now!In this episode of the Time to Level Up podcast, you'll learn what big thinking is and what it looks like in action, with examples from some clients I've worked with. I'll give you a bit of an outline of my book and teach you the three parts that go into big thinking so you can begin before it even launches.4:35 - What thinking big is NOT and shifting from small to big thinking6:58 - What it means to have a thinking big mindset15:31 - Elements that go into the second part of big thinking20:15 - The final piece of the “big thinking” pictureMentioned In What Is Big Thinking?

Ryan dips into Classical Greek ethics, beginning with a brief summary of Epicureanism, which is an ancient form of hedonism that emphasizes simplicity and moderation. "Epicurus was born on the Island of Samoa. He visited Athens as a teenager and briefly studied under a disciple of Plato. Years later, he would return to Athens, but this time not as a student, but rather as a teacher, quickly establishing a philosophy school at a local garden. He liked it so much that… he never left."About Ryan, Host of Thinker Sensitive:Ryan Ragozine is the host of Thinker Sensitive. He is passionate about ecumenical dialogue, inter-religious dialogue, and worldview engagement. He is a major proponent of civil discourse, free thinking, free speech, and ethical communication. Ryan has always been preoccupied with big ideas and big questions. He holds a B.A. in Theology and an M.A. in Philosophy. While in seminary, Ryan had the privilege of studying under Michael Peterson, editor and author of several philosophy of religion texts published by Cambridge, Oxford, and the University of Notre Dame—most notably in the subcategories of religion and science, the problem of evil, and C.S. Lewis scholarship. Ryan and his wife are huge advocates of Christian hospitality, running a house church that welcomed people from all different backgrounds and belief systems for about five years before eventually taking over at Thinker Sensitive.Links: Website: https://www.thinkersensitive.com YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@thinkersensitive1752 Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/thinkersensitive Instagram Account: https://www.instagram.com/thinkersensitive/ Twitter Handle: https://twitter.com/ThinkerSen

In intimate relationships, as well as in life, what does it mean to be a bottom-liner also known as a Black & White thinker? True or false? You should never try to explain yourself to a pair of unwilling ears that belong to a black and white thinker? True or False? The more you explain yourself to a black and white thinker, the more you will be condemned labeled, judged, and held in contempt? What is the true meaning and value of having a nuanced and balanced perspective? How can we strike a balance between acknowledging the role our significant others play in triggering our unresolved pain, while also recognizing that they are not solely responsible for it? What are the potential benefits of cultivating a non-dichotomous perspective, one that appreciates the intricacies and subtleties of intimate relationships, in terms of fostering greater understanding and empathy between partners? What steps can we take to cultivate self-awareness, embrace personal responsibility, and embark on a journey of growth and healing, in order to address and alleviate psychological pain in ourselves and our relationships? In the realm of intimate relationships, how can we transcend the limitations imposed by black and white thinking, allowing us to perceive and comprehend our partner in a more authentic and unfiltered manner, fostering deeper connection and understanding? To what extent should relationships incorporate elements of moral and emotional ambiguity to foster a more comprehensive outlook within Marriage and Relationships, and could this mindset enhance the likelihood of cultivating a healthy relationship? How does cultivating a flexible and contextual perspective enhance the dynamics and overall value of intimate relationships?
For this episode, let's revisit a Strategy Skills classic where we explain what it means to be a conceptual thinker and how to demonstrate this skill. If you work at any major consulting firm – and especially if you want to be promoted – you must prove you are a conceptual thinker. The only problem is that it is hard to define the word conceptual. In this podcast, we explain a similar problem experienced by a consultant on the Corporate Strategy & Transformation Study and how I helped them improve. The definition also explains why a conceptual thinker is a functional specialist (in strategy, operations, corporate finance, etc.) and almost never a specialist in sectors.
