  • So what is the tool that you suggest people used to start?

  • Is it that focused?

  • Meditation isn't just being with themselves alone, asking questions.

  • Yeah, I would say just, you know, take five minutes out of the day every morning, and maybe he wants us to it Monday to Friday and take the weekends off.

  • You know, wake up in the morning shower.

  • Go to a quiet place in your home or apartment.

  • Sit down for five minutes, close your eyes.

  • Could do a couple of breathing exercise and maybe just take a few deep breaths and relax itself.

  • And then start having that conversation with yourself.

  • Same conversation than people.

  • The next natural question is, what do I talk about?

  • All right.

  • Well, what would you talk about?

  • If you met a stranger at a bar?

  • Would you just sit there and stat them?

  • Would you ask questions?

  • What's your name?

  • How you feeling?

  • What do you think about the election in America?

  • Ask yourself these questions.

  • Have a conversation the same way you would have with a stranger with yourself when you have that conversation every day.

  • The initial conversations will be very superficial off feeling today.

  • I'm hungry.

  • Didn't like that show we watched last night and then after a week, we're not gonna be talking about that.

  • If we met every once a week for six months by month, three month, four, our conversation to be so much deeper, right, we'll be talking about much more personal stuff, and then you really get to know yourself, right?

  • And you're diving deep and just trying to find out what you really want, What motivates you?

  • Write who you are, how you're treating the people you love, exactly how you're treating yourself right?

  • And that conversation doesn't happen on day one.

  • Sometimes it does, but most of the time it doesn't.

  • It comes after the fifth or sixth or seventh conversation when you feel comfortable when you can trust the other person with more deeper personal stuff, the same way you have to trust yourself to.

  • Yet once you close your eyes and go inside of you realize that you're going to see things that you love and things that you don't love, and you have to be prepared for that.

  • And most people can't handle that.

  • They can close their eyes and go in and see all the things they love about themselves.

  • But the things that are unpleasant makes them open the eyes and go.

  • This is absolutely useless.

  • I could definitely use my time in much more productive ways, and then they get up in the leaf.

  • That's the reaction when they kind of see something they don't want.

  • Oh, why am I sitting here?

  • It's an absolute waste of time.

  • I got a to do list.

  • I can go get things done.

  • This is a waste of time and temporary.

  • Temporarily feel better or feel like you accomplished a goal or something when in fact you still don't know why you're here.

  • What your purpose is exactly.

  • So same way like you get to know someone you love, right?

  • You see all the good things about them and all the not so good things.

  • This is part of the package, right?

  • But you love and accept them because you looked at this in the same way.

  • You need to take that approach with yourself.

  • But you can't know what you want until you spend time with yourself and you're an expert.

  • But you did that for 10 years and been doing in my whole life even before that.

  • You know, as a child growing up, I spent a lot of time with myself enquiring if what I wanted and what's my purpose in life?

  • And I became very, very clear about it from an early age.

  • And that's why I could leave everything behind and go pursue that.
