EP89 - How to Be a Spiritual Atheist - Part I

EP89 - How to Be a Spiritual Atheist - Part I

March 29, 2019

This is a two-part series as I had the pleasure of interviewing Nick Jankel.  Nick shares his deep insights and wisdom that he wrote about in his book, "Spiritual Atheist."  For me, when I first saw his book, I was very curious to know what it was all about due to the title.  It is a great book and a great interview.

Who is Nick Jankel?

Nick Jankel has lectured at Yale & Oxford, advised the Prime Minister at No.10 Downing Street, been invited to Science FOO Camp run by Google and Nature Journal, contributed to The Economist and The Guardian, the BBC World Service (on the subject of Artificial Intelligence) and presented at The Science Of Consciousness conference.  He can inspire your listeners with his fresh ideas on science and engage them with his playful and warm manner as he shares profound thoughts in purposefully accessible ways. We are currently launching his new book Spiritual Atheist, which has been the #1 New Release for 5 weeks on Amazon!

A Cambridge-educated scientist and historian of science (receiving a Triple 1st), Nick was unable to find lasting happiness with either religion or reason (nor through pills, therapy, partying, wealth, success, or entrepreneurship either). Even though he was, and still is, a militant atheist, he finally discovered the life-changing benefits of ‘spiritual’ enlightenment. But allergic to ‘woo-woo’ weirdness he has spent years meticulously joining the dots between the scientific traditions and the wisdom traditions to form a rigorous life philosophy for the 25% of the USA and UK who say they are ‘spiritual but not religious’. 

In his new book, Spiritual Atheist, Nick risks his reputation as a top advisor to leaders in companies like HSBC and to the UK and US government, by laying out this new life philosophy. He explains the genius of the scientific method for creating firm knowledge about our material world while suggesting that it was never designed to create firm and predictable knowledge about our inner world - our consciousness.

Nick believes that the modern scientific project will fail until it fully accounts for our conscious experiences - the “secondary properties” that scientists from Galileo to Daniel Dennett have discounted as not really real. He goes further to suggest that science - especially the science of human beings - has reached a dead end and must have a quantum-style paradigm shift at its heart to account for an increasing number of ‘uncanny’ phenomenon that it cannot explain: from the placebo effect to embodied cognition to near-death experiences, all empirically verified.

Nick’s ideas follows in the footsteps of titans of philosophy like Plato, Nietzsche, William James, and Alfred North Whitehead.  He draws on the ideas of modern thought leaders like Pierre Hadot, Charles Taylor, Thomas Kuhn, Bertrand Russell, Michel Foucault, Galen Strawson; and is inspired by the work of cutting-edge scientists like Rex Jung, Robin Carhart-Harris, Christoph Koch, and David Bohm.

EP#86 - The Difference Between What to Think vs. How to Think

EP#86 - The Difference Between What to Think vs. How to Think

March 19, 2019

The biggest fail I believe when it comes to learning from someone is when they tell you WHAT to think rather than HOW to think.

The old method of telling you how I did something and now I am going to sell exactly what I did to become successful is awesome stuff but my vision in life is to create SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION.

My vision is to help individuals REALIZE their TRUE nature. To allow for your light to shine. My vision is not to create a copy of someone else in any way, shape or form.

Too many people copy people's stuff and put a stamp on it (logo) that it is there's and in the end, they may be successful, but their soul is muted.

Tune in as I share more on these principles and help you dive deeper into the world of HOW rather than WHAT...

EP#84 - Stop Giving Your Power Away

EP#84 - Stop Giving Your Power Away

March 12, 2019

How we give our power away in so many ways, today I wanted to share one way on how we do this.  I hear this often and it is one thing that, if you can stop giving your power away, you can use that extra power to align and manifest what it is you desire.  It is what allows you to show up as your best every single day.  

The issue with giving your power away is like using up energy on things that don't empower you but only take from you.  In the long run, it is not sustainable.  You end up in a place where you feel burned out, tired, exhausted, etc.  I have been there too many times.

Until I learned this simple tool, I kept ending up burned out, overwhelmed and exhausted.  

Now, I am at my best about 90+% of the time, each and every day.  Still, have room to grow, but way better off than where I was 5 years, 10 years, even the last couple years of my life.

EP#82 - How Not To Be Reactive

EP#82 - How Not To Be Reactive

March 7, 2019

In the world we live in, more and more people are becoming more and more reactive.  We are controlled easier by the concept of, someone can do something and we blow up.  We are not just seeing this with adults, but also in children.

When I was growing up, I remember that if something bad happens to a child, we didn't have to worry about them coming back with a gun or taking out the school.  In today's age, the kids you least expect at times, come back and do things that are unimaginable.  

In the adult world, ask yourself, "When someone cuts you off, how do you feel?  Do you get road rage? Do you take things out on the people who love you the most?  Who do you dump your stress on?"

I am not saying that you dump stress on people so please don't take the wording out of context but what most humans do is, we dump our stuff onto someone else.  We dump our stress, our anger, frustration, emotions onto someone else.  And what happens is, the person will do the same until the one person focuses within and ends the cycle with themselves.  

In this episode, I dive deep into the concepts from a neurological perspective of why we are seeing this, and what are the TOP 3 things I know someone can do to transform their lives and help them stay in a more adaptive, flexible state.  Tune in for more!

EP#80 - Knowing vs Owning

EP#80 - Knowing vs Owning

February 27, 2019

In the information age that we live in, the common thing I continue to hear is, "I know."  Knowing something vs owning something is entirely two different worlds.  Knowledge is great and there are many 'gurus' out there telling you that knowledge is power and its everything. 

I disagree massively.  Here is why.  Wisdom is something that you cannot teach, but can only acquire when you take information and make it yours.  It is when you put your own vibrational frequency or as a friend would tell me, "Here comes some Manzology."  

When you take in things, study it, practice it, make it part of your life and your lifestyle, this is when you open up the door to OWNING something rather than just KNOWING it.

Dive into this short episode as I share this concept much more in-depth...  And as always, please share this episode if you found value in it and please share a review with us on iTunes.  It is greatly appreciated!
