Show Notes

I recently started reading The Trial by Franz Kafka, and there's one thing I really love about this book: It has already raised so many questions in my mind and made me think thoughts I wouldn't have pondered if it weren't for this book. This episode is just me sharing my reading experience while I'm halfway through the book.

164: Random Beach Musings From Halkidiki

I’ve been spending the last few weeks of summer at the beach in Halkidiki and have made a daily ritual of swimming in the ocean each morning. While the water here is typically known to be gentle and serene, it recently has been much more turbulent and unsettled. I’ve had to adjust my swimming technique to navigate the rocky waves and trust in my body to adapt to the tumultuous conditions.  This experience reminded me of a lesson that is true of many things in life - the journey is more enjoyable when you can freely flow with the waves that come your way. Diving into this thought more and some of the philosophical musings I’ve been pondering from my time at the beach.

142: The Young Monk, the Old Monk, the Tiger and the Barking Dog

I’ve been pondering a story for the last couple of days that I want to share with you. It’s a story I first heard at an ashram a few months ago about a young monk, a tiger and a barking dog. While it didn’t really move me at first, it’s been recently popping up in my mind, so in this episode I’m dissecting the metaphors and exploring it’s many meanings.

022: Just a tree in your path - A short story from Mike Tyson's book IRON AMBITION

Today I want to share a little story I read. The story is about Cus D'Amato, an infamous boxing trainer, most known for training Mike Tyson. But his influence on the boxing world went way beyond just Iron Mike. He was one of the first boxing trainers that really focused on the importance of mentality in combat. He really focused on the mind, not just the body. And he was interested in hypnosis, the subconscious mind, affirmations, positive psychology. And he used Mike Tyson as a star pupil to apply some of these philosophies and instill a mentality in Mike that would make him the most feared fighter alive, still one of the most iconic boxers of all time. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/just-tree-your-path-steli-efti/ https://twitter.com/Steli/status/1258316677353107456 ...
