Show Notes

For the last 2 to 3 months I’ve been pondering the concept of mystics and the idea of mysticism. To me, a mystic is someone that is placing the mystery of life at the center of their being.

As someone who has lived so pragmatically for many years of my life, I found this concept to be wildly exciting, adventurous, and beautiful. I previously lived my life in a way that had so many steps and routines, it was working against me - hindering me from moving forward in the ways I wanted to. So now, I'm embracing a more mystical approach to experience a more expensive reality.

In this episode, I talk about the dangers of living too practically, why flexibility and living in the here and now is so important, and striking a balance between these two concepts.

133: What We Hate, We Embody

This concept is something we’ve discussed in previous episodes, but there’s more to this idea that I want to dig deeper into. It’s the notion that there are two sides to the same coin - that what we hate about others, we embody within ourselves. In this episode, I share a few different stories and anecdotes about my mother and her life that helped me realize that everything in its extremes is always wrong. The truth never lies at the extremes, it’s usually oscillating somewhere in the middle of the entire spectrum of life.   Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep133 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/    ...

117: The Power of Timing

Recently I've been experimenting a lot with timing: changing not so much what I do, not really adjusting my habits, but simply being more mindful of when I do these things. And I found that even doing the exact same thing can have an immensely different impact on my life just because of when I do it.
