  • you know, your first book on the day was about, you know, these things Siris of practices that you put in, you know, kind of actual physical things.

  • You did, I think, to kind of prepare your mind on a daily basis.

  • But like, long term, this is master your mind, master your life where I think you're going deeper into the mind.

  • Can you just talk about what the book is about?

  • And is it like things that you've learned more in the last few years?

  • Or is it like your whole life?

  • A little bit of both, you know, a little bit of both, because these air things that I've really learned through all of the different journeys that I've been on from that first vision quest Teoh, you know, the darkness retreat that happened this January to all the other transformational experiences with the cold and the heat in the ice, in ways that I could kind of put my my stress test myself.

  • My own psyche Polyamory is a huge teacher.

  • So all of these different things and trying to condense thes and everything with on it, You know, all of the learning that I've had all of the ways that sought extrinsic pleasure and validation and then found that really, where the wellspring was, where the source of that joy and freedom was, was all internal, you know, being present with the small pleasures of everything in life.

  • So I'm taking all of these learnings doing a ton of research and then creating my own version of the hero's journey of the mind, like the 12 essential steps that you should take that everybody can take to kind of lead their mind on this journey where they can get to that state of freedom.

  • Get to that state like I was when I took my blindfold off and I looked out at the world, and it's just flooded with joy and gratitude and and this feeling of just immense, immense bliss at our existence and try and take people through that journey and say, like, these are the levels that you need to follow and starts with really understanding the narratives that we have.

  • And that's a great thing that I think your podcast does A great job of is it expands the conventional narrative.

  • So it says this is the conventional narrative.

  • Here's an alternative hypothesis.

  • Look into this.

  • There's a lot of institutions and structures that may not have your best interests at heart.

  • There may be billions of dollars and maybe political power.

  • There may be all kinds of things that are motivations, that air skewing what people think.

  • There may be just the fear that people feel themselves.

  • So look at the narratives that are out there in the world.

  • Choose no choose narratives that are more helpful, which really involves taking your own power back, like understanding the power that we have of our own minds to create our reality.

  • So it starts with that, which is like the hero's journey.

  • It's the ordinary world.

  • You have to look at the ordinary world and say, This is the ordinary world.

  • This is what everybody says.

  • If you're depressed, take a pill.

  • You know, if you got this situation, you know, this is this is what we expect you to dio, you know, getting a bunch of money that's gonna make you happy.

  • Like all of these condition narratives that we have And take a look at those and then say I maybe there's another have offices, you know, maybe we have a lot more power ourselves, you know, to find our own happiness, enjoy within us, and then start to go on the journey.

  • Find your purpose.

  • Commit to that purpose.

  • Cultivate those true allies in the tribe.

  • Practice gratitude.

  • Learn how to love yourself unconditionally.

  • Do that, you know, use the tools to heal your trauma.

  • Face your fear head on.

  • Start to identify with that whisper in your head that potential that you have that's always kind of guiding you.

  • So what's possible, you know, and then really live in the present and enjoy this experience.

  • We have some breaking that out into 12 different steps and levels talk about all the times I've failed All the ways that I've been mastered.

  • That was one of the things that did, and on the day each step had both getting owned and owning it.

  • So the contrast of like, All right, this is me when I totally fucked this up and this is how I felt and it was terrible.

  • And this is other people on these air historical examples of different situations where we've made these mistakes and this is the result.

  • And then here's what it looks like when you transcend this level.

  • When you move on beyond this level learned the lessons and adapt.

  • So it's a beast.

  • This new book that I'm working on I mean, it's it's it's absolutely beast.

  • It's actually the mind is more complex than the body has.

  • I think a lot of people can understand the body is a lot simpler.

  • Input equals output in a more kind of regular pattern, but trying to break that down into a journey that everybody can go on.

  • So I'm just learning every day as I'm doing the research and then kind of putting words to these ideas and it's been fucking beautiful, a little beautiful Hell of me trying toe sort all this out as I think any big writing project is.

  • So yeah, I should be out, um, late spring next year.

  • And I'm just really excited to get this out, because this is I think is, you know, more cuts to more like the fundamental things that really we have to support the body.

  • That's like the base layer of them as those pyramid of needs.

  • Like, we have to get the body right and I think own the date is a great job of talking about all of these fundamental practices throughout every period of the day that are gonna help support your body.

  • Because when the body is in pain or the bodies doesn't have enough energy or you're not thinking about the basic things in the right way, it's gonna be hard to like expanding, you know, go beyond that to the mind.

  • So this, but this one's tackling the mind itself on.

  • That's just a really rich and robust topic.

  • And I think the way that I'm structured it is gonna be really helpful to people.

  • And that's the goal, you know, I want on everybody.

  • Like I said, I want everybody to feel that kind of joy and love and zest for life and appreciation for each other, because that's what's going to change the whole collective.

  • It starts with you feeling it yourself, because when you feel it yourself, your actions are naturally going to flow from that.

you know, your first book on the day was about, you know, these things Siris of practices that you put in, you know, kind of actual physical things.
