JOYFull - A Raw Journal of the Mindful Revolution

A wave of mindfulness is changing the world. Ethan learned that at exactly the right time. Its become his mission to share it. Well, one of his missions. Follow on Instagram and Youtube @Ethansharrettofficial

In the first episode, I struggle to describe some thoughts and my current state, in a conversation with you. If you can get through this it is so appreciated, but also...you may have a sadistic issue. I wasn't sure what to expect.

A longer episode. What will become of the camper life idea? The beauty of Venice.  I did speak to quite a few people.  A camper dweller, some musicians, and some world travellers.  My first beach drum circle in about 13 years.  I needed a day like that.  

00:0000:00

This isn't a full episode, just a little one to check in. Let everyone know that I'm alive. I'm reminding myself and any listener that this story is not about heartbreak.  It's about much bigger things. Including names of boats! So if a life change got me to begin this podcast, then that's something positive that has come out of it already. And the Real Story can begin, which is about ideas, and freedom, and strength, and light, and connection.  I will continue to share as my own therapy and approach it in a way to help anyone who hears it.  #Positivity #Mindfulness #Culture #Comedy #Family

I was turned down for an interview, but that's ok.  Funny thing is, she declined because she thinks her life is "boring" with no real dilemma.  In person I learned she was from a small village in Taiwan where people bought things less with money that with community-understood "credit", and her father eventually became mayor of that village, and her self-image has always been defined by neighbors and relatives teaching matter-of-factly her she was the ugly one of a beautiful family.  At 20 she left for the USA with nothing.. that's not boring! We also begin the introduction of the seven chakras.

00:0000:00

Ethan speaks with a friend named Abass, an acclaimed professor of statistics, who shares some of his story.  We talk about growing up in Lebanon, somehow getting to Los Angeles, about applied statistics, and about the people of UTAH...even a little interior design.  What a good friend, and a positive soul.

00:0000:00

In this episode some personal challenges creep in amidst the most positive healing and enlightening.  And then I discuss the first of the seven chakras of my chakra journey.  It ends up pretty good.

00:0000:00

For the first time, the real mission of this podcast is explained.  And then we get into some real-life circumstances.  Gotta get a fridge asap!

00:0000:00

This mundane conversation while commuting from Pasadena is gilded by a convincing account of synchronicity, beauty, and..angels!  I finally bought THE VAN!  So now I'm selling the old car.  That was a long and humorous process.  Brian, the guy who bought the car, shared some of his story and was willing to bond.  A mechanic who has truly transformed himself and become a very talented photographer and film-editor.  Follow his terrific photos on IG at @brianmtz1990,  I met him as a mechanic, but then I couldn't believe the sincerity and light that he's capturing.  

00:0000:00

Look, there's a long drum improvisation that some people will dance to, but some people will admittedly tune out of.  This thing is Raw, like I said.  But after that, I describe some work experience, and I explain why you could and should dedicate yourself.... to the mindful revolution.  Yes!

00:0000:00

The Chakra journey continues.  But first...I realize that mindfulness has made me stop complaining and blaming.  Then we dive into more of "Understanding Chakras".  The Svidasthana has a lot to do with individuality and sex.  Plus a bit of personal news at the end, I should have dived into more.

00:0000:00

I tried to edit this amazing little song onto the end of my episodes as the outro music.  I couldn't figure that out yet.  But if I do, imagine this as the exit music of each interview.

00:0000:00

Fred is a friend from the neighborhood.  He's a great soul and lovely spirit.  Right here, living in Hollywood, working in Larchmont, an Oxford educated gentleman who blazes his own positive path pragmatism and sincerity.  I believe some people have a mindful aura even if they don't use "that vocabulary"!

00:0000:00

There are difficult personal things to deal with, but I continue with the work and stay excited for the new direction.  Then I get into the Solar Plexus, or Manipura Chakra.  The Chakra journey goes on with the Manipura!

00:0000:00

I was hoping Ronnie would be more open minded.

00:0000:00

At the state of Joy Full you may presently be in, or working towards, there may still be moments tricky to figure out, but there is also so much to learn.  

Also, meditation tip via Business Insider, lessons about click-bait media, and David Lynch is changing the world.

FYI The Renaissance began in the 1300s!

00:0000:00

A special conversation that explores identity, how we put pressure on ourselves and allow others to pressure us, and a unique perspective on gender.

00:0000:00

If you don't like the drum I usually use, you're in luck with this quick check in.  This is journaling about how I'm personally preparing for travel and making efforts on staying centered.  That includes going back to the basics.  Cheers, I'll try to get some pictures up about the travel, on @ethansharrettofficial.

Still looking for the first stop/visit, either Northern Cal, Az or NM!!! Direct Message me if you're in one of those places.

I recorded this episode right after going into a wikipedia wormhole to understand when and how Buddhism came to exist in China and what effect Confucius had.  Obviously too much on that to even begin to grasp!  What I do explain is how the road trip is about to happen, and the first mention of the fourth Chakra, the Heart Chakra.  There will be much more about this for certain.  

When we hit the road, I'll be getting photos on Instagram at @ethansharrettofficial please reach out, more stops between Colorado and Washington DC are needed!

00:0000:00

Now officially recording outside California, this episode done from the van.  The difference between Hollywood and the mountains. Also the Heart Chakra (4th) continued.  The books referenced is "Love Yourself as if Your Life Depends on It" by Kamal Ravikant.  And once again "Understanding Chakras" by Broderick S Johnson.  Connect with and follow Ethan Edward Sharrett @ethansharrettofficial and youtube with ethansharrettofficial.
