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

After months of not recording or sharing I am back to it once more. Your life can have a mission that changes the world. Or it can have a mission that simply enjoys, utilizes, bears, or despises the world. I am trying to understand and consider 'dharma.' Also, the president of the united states. The rock music ideal, Tom Petty. Rebel in peace. 2018 can be the best year in the history of the world.

The question in the title was posed to me.  Also this episode it is the first one since the close of the kickstarter campaign! There is a tease with a little introduction to the 7th chakra. I talk about what on Earth that goal is. There is a poor metaphor regarding peanut butter and jelly. I don't have my drum at the moment but I have a good time anyway.

Yes, this is a real thing.  How to deal with it?  That's a question I ask.  The Mindful Revolution will provide the answer.  Thank you so much for listening.  Please leave a star rating or review.  God Bless, Namaste, and have a great day.  No...CAUSE a great day  :)

Something I just published requires correction. I open with a birthday tribute to Michael Jackson.

WARNING: Do not listen while driving!  There are many navigation prompts that will get you completely lost.  It's been over two weeks since I've published, so this is just a status update.  Turns into a few thoughts about dismantling racism.  Evolved thinking is needed here.  The good news is, new understanding occurs at revolutionary levels throughout history!

Why do people say "Beware the Third Eye"?  Where is Ethan now?  Are humans build to be dissatisfied?  Can we be simply JOYFull?  Some of these questions are asked.

And the format is switched.  I start off with the method (Chakras), then go into the personal story, then the cultural observation.

This episode goes back to the raw a bit.  Progress can be like that, two steps forward and one step back.  But remember, it is progress.  After a personal digression, I give an intro to a Wim Hoff breath technique   And a little about the place we're staying for a while.  Self-reporting a correction however:  I mentioned a "Pilgrim" heritage.  But that's off the mark.  Pilgrims, in a religious sense, were much earlier, and up north.  Settlers down here seemingly were motivated by an "off the grid" type of entrepreneurialship.  Pretty cool.  Places in this country are so different!

I finally got a yoga instructor to speak with me!  (For a podcast, that is...several have spoken with me apart from that).  Not only an instructor, Becky Sathre is owner of multiple yoga studios on the Gulf Coast of Florida and Alabama.  She has practiced yoga as a way of life, and explains a little about that and many other topics, including making yourself available to someone after a trauma, and Ganesh, the Giver of Obstacles.

It was awesome to not only talk to Craig, but to open and then close the conversation with a drum jam session!  Craig Gilbert is a Christian pastor in a church near the mountain region of Cripple Creek, Colorado, where I had been visiting family - an energetic teacher who has dedicated his life to Jesus Christ.

Personal transpirings can make it difficult to share, and they have me experiencing the dukkha (a sanskrit phrase meaning something similar to "suffering, for a time").  However I will continue, and I promise to share what we've been up to and where we're going.  I talk about the 5th chakra... from memory, because for some reason the lights in the van didn't want to keep shining.  The 5th chakra, the Vishuddha or Throat Chakra.
