015 – Emotion vs. Feeling

What is the difference between Feelings and Emotions?

One of the greatest issues in relationship is when you get ‘triggered’ into strong emotion by something your partner does.

Thinking that this is caused by your partner is a source of untold suffering.

Understanding the difference between in-the-moment feelings and past-based emotions is one key to letting go of these negative emotions and existing in the moment.

014 – What is Love?

Everybody talks about love. But few people define what it is.

But if you don’t know what it is, or what the *other* thinks it is, you run great risk of heart damage 😉 and more problems.

So, in the interest of full disclosure, short and sweet, what is this love stuff we speak about?

013-Consuming Media Consciously

This is something I feel very strongly about.

You may be surprised to hear this, but those who create the media that you consume every day may not be simply interested in your evolving in consciousness and total happiness.

Just about all information that reaches you without you going ‘to look’ for it has been tailored or at least watered down to make you a passive consumer, a victim, or a slave.

In addition to great podcasts, this is what I recommend for you to do to get more consciousness in your media and entertainment choices.

012-Overcoming Labels, Beliefs, and Concepts

How do our ideas about how the world works keep us back from truly experiencing and living in the world?

How do labels and concepts separate rather than connect us, from ourselves, each other, and the universe?

How are words created to hypnotize us into untrue beliefs?

How can we let go of these beliefs and begin to live in the ‘here and now’ again?

All of this discussed in this podcast. Enjoy!

011 – Avoiding ‘White Knight’ Syndrome

Do you feel like you are doing all the rescuing in your relationships? How is that goin for ya? 😉

Exhausting? Looking for a new way?

White knight syndrome is one name of many for the tendency of beginning a relationship with the intent to ‘fix’ the other person somehow.

Usually not a good idea.

Here I talk about:

  • What WKS is
  • How to identify it
  • How to understand why you are doing it
  • How to get stop doing it
  • and ideas about what to do instead to be happy.

And I talk about hay fever + milk products and my solution.
