Gay and Joanna gently help IAH dive into the saga of Timothy Leary just this one time. The episode gets shot through a love cannon when a forgotten and shocking Tim Leary prison story is revealed half way through – the four of us then dance around the planes of the universe, why humans behave the way they do and the quest for love and other altered states of consciousness.
Gay Dillingham is the producer and director of the documentary “Dying to Know: Ram Dass and Timothy Leary”
Dr. Dan Siegel stops by IAH to talk with Zach on the nature of the mind, consciousness itself and a new lens for approaching well being and thus experiencing a truly integrated life! Minds blown. This one may take more than one listen to fully digest.
Dr. Siegel is currently clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine where he is on the faculty of the Center for Culture, Brain, and Development and the founding co-director of the Mindful Awareness Research Center. An award-winning educator, he is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and recipient of several honorary fellowships.
He’s also written many best selling books including Mindsight and Brainstorm.
This video doesn’t cover everything and only briefly mentions the US funding of Syrian rebels which in part became ISIS. Nonetheless, its a good primer for how complicated this whole situation is.
Next time you ask yourself “why do “they” hate us?”…step back and consider who “they” really is.
It’s not just Islamic jihadists. Those folks are just the delivery mechanism for “they.” It’s a multi headed monster that includes several governments, US interests in the middle east, US sponsored training of specific groups who eventually become ISIS, an ancient tribal war that can be barely understood, the spread of Wahhabism through Saudi Arabia (a US ally) and the sheer ignorance and intolerance of Western nations toward Islam as a whole. All of these things when put into the blender come out to form the “they” we speak of.
There are probably a lot of elements to add to the list that I left out because I can barely understand it myself.
If you think a “war” with ISIS is the answer consider that if that were to happen the members of ISIS would simply slip back into the general population without a trace. Our course correction on this is going to require such a radical turn around in policy, ending our rabid hunger for war, energy independence and most of all an increase of tolerance and compassion towards our fellow man.
We are all Earthlings. There is no “they”. There is only us.
My prayers are with the victims in Paris, om shanti. But I think this world is already in a state of full on crisis. What happened in Paris didn’t change my view of that one bit.
It’s somewhat alarming to me that we collectively seem to value a life in Paris more than we do a life in Beirut (43 dead, same night, same kind of ISIS bombings) or when 147 were lost in a Kenya last April at the hands of Al-Shabaab. I don’t see people changing their FB profile pictures to that of a Lebanese flag? Somehow we value a life more when it’s taken in a beautiful Western city where we take our vacations, go to museums or where U2 has to cancel a concert (as they are doing today.) Part of the problem is that we’ve become so segregated as a global community and far too nationalistic. We are all Earthlings. All of this talk about borders and nations and the incessant focus about where these things are happening needs to stop. These things happen all the time, constantly. They are happening, period. Everywhere.
Let’s stop the madness in every corner, in every country and in every village.
The guru system conjures up a lot of different ideas, some good and some bad, for different people. However, I encourage anyone reading this post to forget anything you think you know and dive into the love portal that is Neem Karoli Baba. Check out this podcast but also get the book “Love Everyone” and go beyond dogma and straight into a map of consciousness that may pry you wide open.
Author of the new book “LOVE EVERYONE – the Transcendent Wisdom of Neem Karoli Baba Told Through the Stories of the Westerners Whose Lives He Transformed”, Parvati Markus on the show! Lovers of Yoga, Ram Dass, mystics and seekers – check it out!
Parvati Markus is a developmental editor and writer of spiritually oriented nonfiction books and memoirs. She has worked on books by various members of the satsang, from Ram Dass’s classic Be Here Now (before she went to India) to those since her time in India with Maharajji (1971–1972)—from Dada Mukerjee’s By His Grace and The Near and the Dear to Krishna Das’s recent Chants of a Lifetime. She is a former president of the board of the Neem Karoli Baba Ashram and Temple and a former development con-sultant for the Global Peace Initiative of Women Religious and Spiritual Leaders, held at the U.N. in Geneva, Switzerland.

Thank you Shiva Baum for helping to make it happen and for Krishna Das for letting me use a little of his music.
