What does it mean to truly forgive another person? And, do we all forgive in the same way? Are we all just doing the best we can with what we have been given? Host, Mike Domitrz, asks CAST members Rick Clemons, Dr. Jenn, and Barry Moniak to share their thoughts on how they use mindfulness to navigate through potentially uncomfortable situations when seeing the best in another person is more cloudy than clear. 

 

The quote that Inspired this week’s show is "See with the heart so that what is invisible to the eye becomes visible as the living magic of reality. Seeing one drop of water can be seeing all water. See how things display their harmony and their chaos at the same time. We are never limited by beauty alone but we appreciate all sides of reality properly.” — from the book Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, by Chögyam Trungpa.

Living minimally - the struggle is real! When you think of "living minimally" do you think of stuff, of clutter, of material things or is it more spiritual? Why is it hard to let go of our "things", do they define us? Do they represent the story we want to tell to the world? If a fire laid waste to all of our possessions, how likely would we be to buy each one again? Host, Mike Domitrz, along with CAST members Maria Janowiak, Megan Merchant, and Berni Xiong describe their own personal experiences and failures with minimalism, the difference between purposefully downsizing and a forced circumstance, and valuable resources they use on their journey to be intentional.

The quote that inspired this conversation is “Live minimally and thus live more free.” — Timber Hawkeye from Buddhist Boot camp.

How much attention are you paying to the number of "likes" you get on social media? Do you seek constant feedback from others to feel valued? What do you think of when you hear the word "Ego"? Is it a negative connotation? What about "Warrior"? Can a warrior be meek and still be strong? Host, Mike Domitrz, along with CAST members Alan Anderson, Rick Clemons, Barry Moniak, and Pat Corrigan Culotti investigate the quandary, “If our primary goal is to serve others, how can our ego serve us?” 

 

The quote that inspired this conversation is “The warrior of meek has abandoned gain, victory, and fame, leaving them far behind. You are not dependent on feedback from others because you have no doubt about yourself. You do not rely on encouragement or discouragement; therefore, you also have no need to display your valor to others.” from Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, by Chögyam Trungpa

Writing is an author’s special gift they share with the world. But does a story manifest itself, guiding an author through the process, or does an author write what is in their mind? Host, Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST members Alan Anderson, Lisa Baker King, Alexandra Folz, and Berni Xiong to discuss the origin of their creative process, and to share from which tools and resources they glean inspiration.

This conversation was inspired by this quote from The Great Work of Your Life, by Stephen Cope:

“Well, the book has a spine. A dharma. But you don’t know what it’s dharma is until you begin to write it. Forget about all the things you said to yourself about your book at the beginning of the project, or what you told your editor or what you wrote in your brilliant book proposal. Know the book has its own dharma which will slowly reveal itself to you. And then you have a choice. You can choose the books dharma.”

What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘warrior’? What characteristics do you imagine a warrior embodies? Do you envision a buddhist monk, a samurai or something completely different? Do you view the term 'warrior' as an ego filled, muscled 'fixer' or a gentle savior? In this week’s episode, Host, Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST members Rick Clemons, Barry Moniak, and Darren Tipton to gain clarity on the multiple dimensions of being a warrior in today’s world. 

The quote that inspired this conversation is “To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life. Realize that you do not possess basic goodness but that you are the basic goodness itself. Train yourself to be a warrior is learning to rest in basic goodness to rest in a complete state of simplicity. In the Buddhist tradition, that state of being is called egolessness.” — from the book by Chögyam Trungpa, Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior.

What do you do when you are feeling insecure, what "armor" do you display?

Have you ever made a judgment or an assumption about someone, and then beat yourself up about it because you held onto a belief that judging and assuming is wrong? Have you found yourself making up "stories" about people and situations that begin to frame your thoughts and your judgements? Judgments and assumptions are human processes with the purpose of making us feel safe and prepared. It is absurd to assume we are always correct about the stories we create. What if we gave ourselves a break and left room for edits in the story we wrote? How would that begin to build a truer story and a more human connection with others? How would our lives change if we recognized our judgments, and then left room for edits? 

In this special one-on-one interview, Mike speaks with keynote speaker and author of Good Enough Now, Jessica Pettitt, about how our actions can be mindful, if even messy, and how curiosity and generosity can edit the stories we make, making mindfulness part of the story we create.
