Secret Shade

Secret Shade – All Spirit, No Fluff. We spend an hour with Matt from Indonesia. He shares with us how he lives his life on purpose to create more freedom from societal norms.

Matt says:
“I’m trying to craft the sort of lifestyle that involves freedom of many kinds – financial, geographical, psychological etc.”

He mentions the pain of a 5 day work week. And….he did something about it.

We talk about:
Pain is inevitable, suffering optional
Float tanks
Meditation
Spiritual work using non-mainstream methods
Living on purpose
Taking risks/going with the flow

On duality and embracing suffering:
Matt reminds us we’re stardust. And stardust is the result of a violent, cosmic dying process. It’s OK to experience pain. It’s part of life.

Matt can be found on his blog:

In this 102nd episode about Spirituality & Money I spend time with author, educator, and philosopher Ahyh. You can find him and his latest book at The Future Testament

Where will people turn when times get hard?

Who will be the new sage(s) of the age?

Quote from The Future Testament.net:
“It boils down to this:  Our ideas are too small.  In the 21st century, it is time to have our religious ideas take a quantum leap into the present, just like our understandings of biology, chemistry and physics have grown so astronomically in the last few years.”

tank

PODCAST AUDIO – click to listen

Imagine being in a bathtub full of body temperature water and epsom salt. There’s so much salt you float like a cork on top of the water. You’re weightless, suspended, gravity does not have its way with you.

What if you were floating on top of the water and you were in total darkness with no sound? Now we’re talking mind separated from the body. Meditation on steroids.

That’s what we talk about with Erin Norin in this interview. She recently experienced a float tank (sensory deprivation tank) and is going to tell us what it was like for her. I’ll also share my recent float tank experience in Atlanta, GA.

His internet radio season four kicked off with part one of the “Finding You” series: One Day When I Was Lost. In the above interview we discuss Body. In the next few weeks we’ll cover Mind and Spirit. It’s all about balance, self empowerment, and you remembering how powerful you really are.
