Do we see reality as it actually is? Have you ever wondered if what we see around us every day is actually...there? Is this actually the Matrix?!

Buckle up and take your shrooms for this one...

Donald Hoffman is a Professor of Cognitive Science at the University of California, Irvine.

His TED talk "Do We See Reality?" has garnered over 3 million views and takes a dive off the deep end of the consciousness pool as it explores our place in the universe and our perceptions of our very own lives.

Hear him explain and me attempt to understand how:

1. Humans are not made to see the truth

2. What reality actually looks and feels like

3. Scientifically, are we truly capable of altering our realities since we are not perceiving the "real" one anyway?

4.How we have evolved to be great at lying and deceiving ourselves and what to do about it

Part 2 is going to go even deeper on this subject AND talk about how anxiety and guilt are evolutionary tactics that are not necessary anymore. We also talk about the role meditation, prayer, and hallucinogens play into going through our doors of perception and seeing the truth in our lives and the world.

How many times have you heard to just "follow your passion" OR "Follow your bliss"!

What does a passion or bliss even look like and how do I find it?

This type of thinking leaves all of us feeling like other people have this magical passion and we don't. So what should we be following instead? Listen to this quick solo episode to hear what you should be cultivating to live a full life without all the stress of running around looking for a passion that might not exist.

In this fresh episode you will hear how to downsize your possessions, let go of attachments and live a leaner, happier life. Damon and Todd, both in their 50’s, decided it was time for them to realize long-held dream of traveling the world before they no longer could. They had a 3 bedroom house full of items accumulated over the years and comfortable lives. They had a mortgage, two cars, and jobs. Once they saw friends losing health and the possibility of regret looming over them, the decision was made to pursue this dream with passion and a deadline.

I met Jessica on Tinder and she quickly informed that she was 'polyamorous'...I had no idea what that meant so quickly assumed it meant she had two dicks. Or a vagina and a dick.


All I saw was the word POLY staring back at me and I knew exactly what that meant: multiple. Maybe she has crazy multiple orgasms, that could be neat. I of course didn't realize then that the root of the second part of the word, amorous, is from the latin “amor” and literally means love in Spanish. She lived her life without a complete commitment to one single person with the capability to be in relationships with as many people as she saw fit for that period of her life.

I breathed a sigh of relief when I read that description, content that I did not have to deal with a bunch of dicks.

We hung out about 5 times that long summer. We got food and listened to music in Mexico, drank cold beer on warm August nights and of course, we fucked. My curiosity was becoming as hard to contain as my libido around this girl so I asked if she would come on the show to talk about the lifestyle of a married, bisexual, polyamorous woman.

A few weeks before I took off from Southern Arizona to travel around the West, we met up at a hotel in Tucson to hang out one more time. After eating some chinese food delivery and whiskey, we sat down and got into the nitty gritty of how these types of relationships work.

Love him or hate him, Kirill Bichutsky has made a name for himself as a NYC nightlife photographer, throwing his own brand of parties that include the infamous ‘champagne facial’, and being a provocateur on social media. His brand of humor is unapologetically brash, self-deprecating, and raunchy. He has accumulated over 2 million followers across Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter where he is known as three different aliases: ‘UglyRussianJew’, ‘SlutWhisperer’ and ‘KirillWasHere’ respectively. A lot of people get pissed off at him and just as many are fervent supporters. He seriously doesn't care either way.

Some say that he is objectifying the women with his act, especially the part where he dumps champagne and milk on them to invoke images of cum in porn. His brand of partying has been banned from venues and cities for being too obscene and causing a stir with local women rights groups. In the end, he seems to simply wants to host the party where people have a memorable night.

Kamal has trekked to one of the highest base camps in the Himalayas, meditated with Tibetan monks in the Dalai Lama’s monastery, earned his US Army Infantry patch, walked 550 miles across Spain, lived in Paris, written several bestsellers, held the hands of dying patients, and worked with some of the best people in Silicon Valley.

A few years ago he lost all his money from his company failing, had a close friend die and became severely depressed. Out of that experience came his first book “Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends on It” which went on to become a runaway bestseller on Amazon that currently garnishes over 2,000 4-star reviews. After reading that and changing my own mindset (Cory and I have talked about his book and the effect it had on episode 15), I reached out to him to be on the show. Over a year later we were finally able to sit down and talk about how he crafted his new book, “Rebirth” which came out January 3rd.

The story follows a young man walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain and living an entire lifetime full of love, sorrow, adventure, discontent, and doubts within a month of hiking. Kamal is as genuine as they come in this episode

Meet Fernando "Nando" Urias, a firefighter and professional roper in Southern Arizona. Like most of us, he spent decades being a self-proclaimed "class clown" and never putting 100% effort into anything from fear of failing. After being humbled by a respected mentor, he altered his mindset, threw out the lies he had been telling himself and committed to the goal regardless of the outcome. His hard work payed off and he recently made it and competed in the National Championships in 2016.

What exactly did he do and how can it help? Listen to his stories and hacks for changing your story and re-writing it to embrace the failure instead of pushing it away.

I wasn't sure if I should post this episode and still feel vulnerability from doing so...I'm going to take that as a sign to do it.

The other day I was staring out my window as a monsoon storm swept through Southern Arizona near Mexico and I suddenly bolted off the couch to grab my journal. I quickly wrote 5 thought patterns that were negatively affecting every aspect of my life and my entire worldview about myself. Some have been around since childhood and all of them mold the man I am and will become unless I consciously change them.

I am not sure how or why they presented themselves to me in that moment but once I wrote them down, I felt a lightness that took hold for days. This podcast is based on those limiting beliefs I harbor within myself and what I am doing to defeat them.

If it doesn't help you, remove the thought from your mind.

Please reach out to me if any of these resonate with you and let's RISE TOGETHER.

Some people seem to be born with a propensity to an existence not entirely controlled by their ego...how do we incorporate those traits into our lives to live a life full of real substance?
