Bryce Vance 0:00
Welcome back to the inbound secret guys. As always, I am your host, Bryce Vance, we’ve got Alexander slow wacky with us today, he’s going to be talking a little bit about a pretty unique program he developed called Mind Mentor. To give you a little bit of background on who this guy is, he’s somebody that helps really, signify and concrete, your ability to pursue your own responsibilities, your own daily tasks, your own mission, your own vision, and he does it in a pretty unique way. So without further ado, Alex, give yourself a warm welcome. Tell people a little bit about you. And we’re gonna dive right on in I want to hear a little bit about what Mind Mentor is. And we were talking a little bit before the show, I think what we went over will be super valuable to the audience to listen in and watch it.
Mind Mentor 1:01
Sure. So um, yeah, I was kind of explaining before, you know, there’s a big misconception of what a mentor is versus what a therapist is versus what a life coach is. And I’m sure that we can all agree that life coaches now are popping up all over the place. So anyone in their grandmother could call themself a life coach. And now that kind of creates an issue where people perceive life coaches as kind of being anyone who has something to say. And that’s not true, because that’s not what a real-life coach should be, you know, you’re coaching someone, just like you are a football coach, you want to bring them to wherever they want to get that school scores a goal, right, or some type of goal that they want to achieve to make points and they give them strategies to get there the most effective way and then continue up their ranking, and etc, etc. So a goal is more of a life coach is more so going to help you complete a goal that will take you from where you currently are bringing you to where you want to be. a therapist is someone who’s going to help you process traumas and help you get give coping skills so that you can handle the stresses of life and daily life in a much more healthy way, and then kind of investigate what is really going on behind the scenes. They also help you a lot with validation, as well, so that you can feel things that you didn’t, you didn’t get to feel like childhood or things that you’re really not handling well. Right now currently, in whatever situation you’re at. Now, a mentor can be somebody who has gone through something that you’ve gone through before. Or they could be someone who’s professionally up, outranks you, and can tell you about how to get to where you want to get to a little bit faster, how do you need to think, to get to where you want to go, it’s more of a slump supplemental person in your life, who I think typically is seen as like an older, wiser person, you know, parent, an old friend, an old boss, whatever, but the concept of paying for a mentor is not really pushed, or established because nobody ever again like it’s this misconception of what a mentor is. So I kind of created my mentor as a way to distinguish myself from a life coach. And also, obviously, I’m not a licensed therapist. So what I do is I kind of combine the life coaching theories and a little bit of psychology background to create a Mind Mentor accountability program, a scenario where I can help someone continue the momentum that they are building in therapy, or help continue their momentum that they are building and a life coaching session, outside of the sessions, because most people tend to stop their progress in a therapy session where they stop their progress in a life coaching session. And then once they get out of the session for an hour, they kind of fall apart. And that’s where as a Mind Mentor, as a mentor in general, that is what helps people continue to go and continue to progress, how they want to.
Bryce Vance 4:19
So you’re, you’re really kind of digging in the trenches with your clients rather than just being like, Well, here’s what you need to do, go do the thing. You know, you’re coming in, and you’re saying, Well, here’s the holistic view of what you’ve got going on. This is your action plan that you got from x, this is where you want to be and this is where you are. Now here’s how we make sure you do that. And we’ll work hand in hand or together day by day, to make sure that you’re doing the things those little micro-steps that eventually get you to where you want to go.
Mind Mentor 4:57
Yeah, I’m glad that you said and holistic Cuz that’s another problem that I see in today’s mental health industry. And the kind of the field in general is, there are no real holistic approaches towards mental health unless you’re going to some type of rehab facility or, you know, some type of clinic. And that can be extremely problematic because somebody who goes to a therapist is going to go there and expect that all their problems are going to be solved after those one-hour therapy sessions, you know, weekly or bi-weekly. But that’s not how real progress or your mental state or rewiring your brain kind of works, you need those holistic approaches and those other people who play those other roles in your life to keep you going and to keep to support and supplement whatever it is you’re learning and working on in therapy. So ideally, there should be in my opinion on Mind, Mentor, or sorry, I keep saying uh, Mind Mentor, but you should have some type of mentor, some type of life coach and some type of therapist all working together for your, for your health, and throwing a dietitian in there if you want to win a personal trainer.
Bryce Vance 6:12
Well, I’m glad you just threw in a personal trainer because, like the parable, I guess, if it’s the correct term that comes to my mind is like I’ve hired and still to this day, I’ve got coaches and I wouldn’t necessarily say mentor, but coaches, friends, mindset sales, trainers, etc. that I hire regularly to help me keep my game up so that I can be of a bigger impact and serve others at a higher level. But even for myself, like I’ve hired personal trainers, fitness coaches, and what most people have this idea of is you hire a personal trainer so they can show you how to workout. That’s not why you hire a personal trainer, you can pretty much get that from walking into a gym or stumbling around for a few hours, and you’ll figure it out. You hire a personal trainer to help you keep the form to help you keep the gains to help keep the motivation because there’s somebody who’s gone through the cycles of being a gym addict to kind of falling off for a little bit and getting back into it on a regular basis now until you get over that about six months timeframe, where you develop it as a pattern where it becomes part of you. Pretty much every time that you want to go to the gym, it’s a struggle, not because you don’t like it. I like the gym, I love working out I feel great during it and after it. But it’s that connection you make that you’re like, Fuck, I gotta go do this thing. It’s I’m going to be tired, I’m going to be sore, it’s going to take time away from other things. And with and that’s whereas a personal trainer or coach comes in because they’re like, Nah, you said, This is what you want. This is how you get there. This is what you have to do every day. And they keep you on track for that. Yeah. It sounds like that’s really kind of where Mind Mentor and what you do, comes into play for people who are looking to have a deeper connection within themselves, to find out who they are, what their purpose is, why they’re here, what they’re meant for. escaped past trauma kind of leveled themselves up to more so than anything else is that a good assessment there.
Mind Mentor 8:33
So for me, and Mind Mentor, we, I am trying to create what I’m calling the mind analysis summary and action plan. And that’s the bread and butter of what mind mentoring is all about. And it’s really about bringing the client’s awareness to their deepest authentic self. Which is extremely like advanced introspection. And you know, just a little statistic out there 95% of people think that they are self-aware. But about 10 to 15% are actually by criteria self-aware. So that means a lot, you know, what does that mean? It means a lot of us are walking around day to day, doing things every day that we think we know why we’re doing them. We think we know who we are, we think that oh, we need to do this podcast, or we need to do this job. Or we can’t do this job or I can’t have this future I have this fear, or I have this anger or I don’t like this or I like this or whatever it is that you define yourself as and however your mindset is, however, your personality is whatever you identify as we have 95% of people basically thinking they’re 100% aware of themselves. So what I really do and how I start this mind mentoring is I bring your awareness to a much more Honest play so much more realistically authentic version of yourself first through advanced introspection type techniques and questionnaires and then I give my mind analysis, which is a 17-page long report, like literal analysis about everything that we go through and all of your mind. And then from that point on, we establish a real vision, real goals, and then I start to keep you accountable. So it’s that kind of like the first it should be the first step before you go to therapy, it should be the first step before you go to a life coach. Because the problem with that is when you go to the therapist, and you think you know, who you are, you think you know, your emotions, it takes like 10 months, just to start diving into where you really are in therapy, or as a life coach, or hiring someone to get, you know, get me to $100,000 by the end of the year by becoming a life coach, right. But the life coach is just going to do that, they’re just going to help you get to where you want to be without actually diving into why you want to get there and, and if you really should be getting there in the first place. So that’s kind of where my mentor is mostly is, it’s more about self-awareness, and kind of getting you to a beginning a real blank slate, so that you can go to a therapist with all these real, newly found problems that you were not aware of. And you can go to a life coach to bring you to really where you should be going or where you actually want to be, not where you think you want to be.
Bryce Vance 11:32
So so let’s, let’s dive in a little bit on this, because the audience, the people listening, the people watching, we want to help them write, we want to drop some golden nuggets for them, we want them to take action, we want them to be able to serve people at a higher level and, and make more impact right. Now, obviously, there are levels to this, just like anything else, right? Things don’t necessarily happen immediately. They happen over time, it’s kind of a scale effect. But for the people listening, the 95% of people that that may believe they’re self-aware, but they’re not they’ve got some work to do. What are a couple of things that you’ve seen that you’ve helped clients do that through your expertise through your program, through everything that you’ve done, people could take action on themselves, to start making positive change, to become more self-aware to be able to start that process for themselves. So what can they do in order to start facilitating deeper self-awareness and introspection without a Mind? Mentor, per se?
Mind Mentor 12:38
Um, it’s, it’s, that’s a hard question. Because you don’t know what you don’t know, right. And you can’t self-analyze yourself if you are already trapped by your own belief systems and your own cognitive biases, which most people are. So it’s kind of difficult because there’s a confirmation bias, it’s called where you’re basically going to try and self analyze yourself and confirm whatever belief you already had before. So it is a little difficult, however, the most fundamental way, which most people are not gonna, like this is meditation. And not I’m not talking about a BuzzFeed meditation, or some type of relaxation, meditation, or even a guided meditation. This meditation is rooted in like dozen masters. And it really has a lot more to do with sitting within your own subconscious and your own suffering and allowing lessons to manifest through an almost physical, central nervous system based, like pain and discomfort. So a lot of the answers that people seek are already within their minds. And the way to kind of access them is to just sit and do nothing. And then wait until those answers kind of come. But we’re in a very, we’re in a very fast-paced society today. And we do not like discomfort, and we don’t have patience, and we don’t have time. So it’s difficult to kind of sell the real effective, deeper meditation, which is why those guided meditations seem to do so well.
Bryce Vance 14:15
So let’s say that Hold on, I have to sneeze for a second. I apologize. I’m okay. I think I don’t know. Maybe I’ll sneeze randomly while talking. So everybody, just bear with me. Let’s say that somebody comes to you, and, or even somebody just listening to this today, right? This is maybe their first introduction. Meditation, they hear meditation, they’re like, I Imma do it. When most people hear meditation, they think of the guided stuff. They think of the YouTube or the BuzzFeed stuff. Maybe they even think of yoga or some Tantra stuff right? How would one is there a resource that you found? Is there some tips or tricks that you know that can you can guide these people on? they can maybe give it an attempt, right?
Mind Mentor 15:14
Yeah, yeah. So I actually created my own custom meditation. A little background on that. I, I, I mean, I might as well be honest. So I from the beginning, I started from like, I’m adopted from Colombia. I’ve had experiences with some intergenerational trauma for my parents, emotionally immature parents, and codependency was involved. I always felt very alone My whole life. I have myself as codependent pretty toxic, I would say borderline narcissistic within a lot of my relationships. And then over time, I became more and more depressed. I lost I, my ex-girlfriend and I broke up, which was a huge trigger for me. And I kind of went into the spiral of depression. So at some point, I experimented with shrooms. And I got to this place in like iKON my consciousness where I called it like the the end of consciousness. And I’m not going to explain that entire trip. But that kind of led me to my friend who meditated with a zozen master over at Rutgers University in New Jersey. And because what I told her, she was meditating for years, and years and years, and what I had experienced within that shrooms type of trip, was almost exactly the same type of thing that you’re supposed to experience in higher levels of zozen meditation, which is a Japanese form of meditation with Buddhism. So that got my interest to go to meditation. So I went over there, and I started meditating. And basically, long story short for five years, I meditated pretty consistently, up until recently, on and off, and the degree of transformation and insights and wisdom and crazy experiences that I have undergone was just life-changing. And I read all about meditation and how it affects the brain. And I actually read neuroscience. It’s called a book called how enlightenment changes the brain. And it was a bunch of studies on that neuroscientist studying how the brain actually starts to change what happens when people reach those enlightenment states? And how can you get into them faster, more effectively? And so I basically took the knowledge that I learned, and I took my experiences that I went through, and I created my own custom meditation that I do have written down. So in terms of a resource, I have my own specific meditation that has been proven by other people, because I’ve given it to other people. And I’ve, I’m actually, I’m a meditation. On the side, I help people with meditation, that’s just another service that I do. And it’s been helping people specifically with dissociation, who have gone through more complex PTSD, and have actually had dissociative identity disorder or dissociative tendencies where they kind of split their personality, they blackout and they start to act a little bit of a different way as a coping mechanism because they went through some type of trauma as a child, or whatever. And what I’ve been seeing is actually an integration between their like, their subconscious, and their consciousness, which is just, it’s amazing to watch and witness because through my meditation, you’re almost, you’re going you’re shifting in and out of consciousness states, you’re shifting into a subconscious state, and you’re bringing it back to your awareness, you’re bringing awareness to your subconscious, and bringing it back and forth. And you consistently do that over time. So that you can actually integrate your true self is the theory in a very short amount of time.
Bryce Vance 19:13
there are a couple of things I want to touch on there. Because that was a powerful statement. But let’s, let’s take this piece by piece for everybody. So So first and foremost, I would applaud you for the transparency because transparency is a big thing for us. And I myself just launched my first book, it’s being published on ktb here over the next few, few days or few hours, just depending on how long they take to update everything. And it’s called how prolific mistakes make prolific profits and it goes through my story of hell. I’ve made every mistake you can possibly make at some point, drug issues, alcohol issues, legal issues, personal issues. I was toxic at one point. I was the old history. Like, historically accurate men don’t feel feelings guy, right? And it’s the most painful thing I’ve ever had to do. But probably the most prolific thing that I’ve had to do, the most beneficial thing I’ve had to do was to look at myself at a completely vulnerable, holistic state to find out what is causing these What, what, what makes me toxic, what my bad traits are, how can I fix them? Where do they stem from and actually start healing? Yeah, yeah. And, and it sucks, like full disclosure, it’s not a pleasant experience. Yeah, it is the most profound beneficial experience I’ve had in my entire life, though. It led me to who I am, it led me to my vision, it led me to my mission, it led me to my purpose on this life that I’ve got tattooed on my right arm, it led me to help 1000s of people have led me to here. And it’s going to lead me to everywhere that I’m going to go and all the 1000s of lives, we’re going to be able to change throughout that time. It’s worth it. But it’s, but I want to take that to kind of another thing. You started this journey at a low point. And psychedelics kind of introduce you to the concept more or less. And that’s interesting to me, because there’s the gentleman who invented LSD, for instance, the gentleman who invented acid was a medical physician and a scientist. And he invented it originally, as a psychotropic that could induce a bridge between the knowing and unknowing mind to solve medically distressed patients that we’re currently just being solved with a robot. And granted, there’s a lot more to that story. He’s written books about it, there are publications, there are articles therein medical journals about this guy, but it kind of stems too, he was trying to find a way to solve a problem to something that nobody understood something that was considered psychosis. And it led him to this journey where he made one of the most powerful psychotropic drugs in the history of mankind. And that kind of opened up there’s a Netflix documentary about this have psychedelics have and the medical community was at 1.1 in the same and they’ve kind of split, they’ve kind of bridge into the new age hippie that started in the 60s and 70s, and the medical community that just uses pharmaceuticals, right? But it’s an interesting conversation. Because whether you like it or not, whether you believe it or not, whether you use drugs or not, and I am by no means endorsing drug use. Yeah, right in any sense of the term by no means. But it’s an interesting thought experiment to have. Where, internationally, it doesn’t matter the time frame the era of the generation, the nationality ethnicity. all societies have introduced a higher belief in psychological psychoactive experiments, the knowing mind and the unknowing mind the conscious and subconscious, to some degree in tandem with psychotropics or psychedelics, I Alaska for a lot of the Spanish communities in the eastern communities, LSD for a lot of the Europeans mushrooms for a lot of the New Age hippies, that kind of following and they kind of whether they’re tandem or not, they seem to follow the same pathway. Now. What I didn’t know is that high-level meditation and seemed to be connected or disconnected, but there’s a coincidence experience of humanity. Whether you consider it a weakness, a curiosity, whatever it is, I didn’t know the experiences were very similar. Yeah,
Mind Mentor 24:19
yeah, I I have experienced higher levels of like truth and existence, far, far greater and more intense than I did with with any shrooms trip through meditation. So I agree with you. Drugs are drugs. You know, drugs can do many different things. It doesn’t it’s definitely not, it should never be relied on and it should never be used as a primary means of tapping into health in general at any math in any sense. In my opinion, it needs to be used if it has to be used as a supplemental method that should ideally be tapered off.
Bryce Vance 25:03
But, and I think it’s important to note that and you said it yourself, if it has to be used, it needs to be just like, if you go get a prescription for for anything, there needs to be a medical reason for. It can’t just be like, well, it’s Tuesday
Bryce Vance 25:26
and that’s the problem. That’s, that’s a huge problem. And it’s, we’re joking about it. But you know, that’s one of the biggest part I don’t know about today anymore. I’m so disconnected with like, younger kids. I sound old, but like, I don’t know what they do anymore. I know, back when I was younger, you know, however, like 10 1112 years ago, or I guess, 1520. Now, I don’t know. Um, you know, drugs and alcohol use was pretty extensive. And now that COVID is around like, I don’t know what it’s doing anymore. But
I still think it’s still is it’s probably peaked. I have no idea. I tend to just focus on helping people making an impact. And then quite honestly, I feel old saying this, but I’ve got no idea what kids are doing these days. Yeah, the but but I think there’s, I think there’s something to be said in that. And and take this with a grain of salt. Once again, I’m not endorsing drugs, or misuse of anything. But like, I didn’t write for pretty extensive period of my life when I was younger, and thankfully, I haven’t in years. And thankfully, it’s not something like I don’t abuse substances. Do I drink every now and then? Yeah, have I partied every now and then since since high school? Yeah, but it’s not. I mean, I’m not going out like, fucking Wolf of Wall Street. And the movie just pop in clay loons. Like, that’s not a thing, right. But what got me out of, of my old self was the mindset was, was fixing me and was focusing on who I was, why I was here, what my purpose is. And there’s a couple things that come along with that. My one of my biggest issues with society that I think leads to a lot of the issues that that cultivate right, is what I call socio economic complacency. And what that really means is, we’ve cultivated a society of performance. And that’s fine. I’m a big believer in performance. But what we failed to do is keep the education standards, and the qualification and cultivation and really continuity standards up. We’re still using an education system that was designed to create factory workers, thinking that it’s going to create free, free thinking entrepreneurial, self sufficient people, we’re treating people as if their numbers more than anything else, where you have to live 40 you have to work 40 hours a week work for 40 years to retire on a fourth or a third of your life. In a job you hate to pay bills, you hate to buy things to impress people you hate. And that’s, that’s one not a long term profitable system. But to it cultivates an experience when people don’t know why they’re here. People have this belief that now we’re born to work, and we’re living to die, right. But the chances of you being here are one in 100 trillion for you to even be born. And then if you’re born in a free world, a country that has any level of freedom, it’s another 100 to 200 trillion odds of that occurring with 7.7 billion people on this planet. You cannot with a fraction of your mind, truly believe that your purpose was to be born to work. You have a deeper, bigger purpose here to serve to some level to somebody to make an impact to make a change to make a footprint to build a legacy and socio economic programming. The societal changes the general racial, brainwashing for the lack of a better term that this is what normal is and there’s nothing you can do about it has caused a degradation of the self. That unless you yourself, look for some higher purpose, look for something above, going out and working in a job you hate to pay bills and buy shit you hate to impress people you hate. You’re never going to find true happiness or joy, your purpose, because you’ve been beaten down by a system designed to keep you there. Right. And it wasn’t until I started looking at me. Why am I here? What’s the purpose of you? mathematically, it doesn’t make sense for me to exist if there was not a greater reason for it. And if everybody had had that conversation with themselves, and then started going through psychiatry or counseling, whether it’s yourself or a professional, hiring out coaches, mentors, and being truly vulnerable, open and honest to work towards progression. I don’t think drugs would be a problem. Because we’re not looking for. We’re not looking for that happiness that source that greater meaning artificially anymore.
Mind Mentor 30:30
Yeah, yeah, there’s a couple things that you said I just wanted to touch on. It’s not just society. I mean, society is obviously huge. And it creates a culture of like you said, workers and just kind of blindfolded people. But it’s also intergenerational trauma from parenting. In fact, I think that’s one of the biggest problems is parenting in general, especially the older generations, they’ve, we’re just now starting to talk about emotions and 2021. So you can imagine, you know, how we’ve been grown up and how we’ve been developed as human beings, how we’ve been taught to think, by our parents, and then on top of our parents, our friend’s parents, and yada, yada, yada, and then society. So not only is it that socio economic kind of brainwashing, but it stems from within your household, everything that you believe and everything that you kind of achieve or want to achieve always stems from within the household and then goes outward. So it’s it’s definitely a problem of education in general. But the other thing I wanted to ask you was, um, you know, you’re exactly right, you’re kind of, you’re almost describing my mind analysis, summary and action plan, without even knowing it. And I wanted to ask you, what was the catalyst for figuring out are diving into or investigating who you really were,
Bryce Vance 31:52
I had a gun, um, I had a gun in my mouth at 3am on July 10, of 2017.
Bryce Vance 31:59
It’s quite the catalyst.
Bryce Vance 32:02
I had started my life over three times before that.
Bryce Vance 32:08
I had great winds, I had great failures, I’d gone through a bunch of shit, I grew up the hard way, the first time I was shot at I was 13, or 14 years old. I didn’t. And there was no reason for that I didn’t grow up in a broken home, my parents were divorced. But they both loved me, I knew that I didn’t grow up in a bad neighborhood. I didn’t grow up blacking anything. We weren’t wealthy, we were quite poor. But it wasn’t for the lack of trying, I never missed out on anything. It wasn’t a circumstance that put me in that situation. It was poor decision after decision after decision after decision. Because at some point in my life, I wanted to rebel and I just kept on that rope. And I didn’t care. Because I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t know why why I was here, I was looking for something that I couldn’t even put a name on, let alone a figure really talk about. And that led me down a path that ultimately did lead to, to now I don’t regret any of it. I just don’t think people have to go through what I did to get there. Yeah,
Mind Mentor 33:11
and that’s, that’s definitely like, it’s a, it really is important because you like you just said you had to go through X, Y, and Z to the point where you had a gun in your mouth, right to have some type of shift to have some type of realization or enlightening aha moment, just to realize shit like, what am I you know, who am I really. So that feeling that shift that catalyst is exactly what the mind analysis summary and action plan provides to people so that they don’t have to get to the point where they’re, they’re trying to kill themselves, or they don’t have to get to the point where they’re having an extremely toxic and abusive relationship that pushes them over the edge, that analysis is basically going to help, like, if you were to have a mind analysis at that point before, then you could have avoided getting to that point, because you would have had somebody to tell you look, you have this limiting belief, you have this core issue, you might be suffering from this, you, you probably are thinking this way, and you have this desire, because this happened when you were a little kid, you know, you perceive your parents this way you perceive and identify yourself This way your ego is like this, you have negative thoughts like this, you use negative languages, XY and Z. It’s it’s a whole bunch of analysis, things that you can read, all you know, in the matter of a couple minutes, that could potentially change your life forever. And that’s exactly what I’m trying to provide and what I have provided to clients who are never the same after they get a mind analysis.
Bryce Vance 34:44
And that’s a powerful thing. It’s It’s It’s an interesting it’s an interesting sub niche that you’ve created, but it’s but it’s something that I don’t think could have existed before. Now to be quite frank. Yeah, not because I don’t think it was needed. But it’s taken us until 2021. For hell, it took me until 2017 to. And I’m just going to call myself out on this to have enough fucking nuevos to be able to look myself in the eye and figure out who I was. Right? And I was Fuck, I don’t know, it’s 2021. Now I’m 29. So I turned 29 in July, so it was what 2423 something like that. 25 somewhere in there, I don’t want to math, it’s late. But somewhere in the mid 20s that I’ve gone through my entire life. Not ready to have that conversation with myself. Right. And so I don’t think it’s something that could have existed before. Now. I think it’s something that, quite frankly, I’m glad does exist. But I really do hope that you keep developing that helping more people and making a larger impact. And that’s why you’re on the show, is to introduce a lot of people to that, hopefully you get business out of it. If not at least we’ve introduced a ton of people to the concept of of my mentorship and what a mind analysis is what we’ve got to wrap up here, but before we do, we’re gonna start the three favors, man, I just want you to leave the people with one one impactful statement, one Golden Nugget, if you will. And then if you’ve got a place where that resources, your your meditation, if you want them to email you if there’s a website they can go to, I think that can change a lot of lives. And then last but not least, man, where can people contact you?
Mind Mentor 38:13
Yeah. Well, so what I’m saying is, if you’re not familiar with that location, are you trying to find it, and finding the secret spot is to get to the point where you realize and fundamentally feel that those who hurt you, such as your parents, or your old relationships, or strangers or even yourself, are just human beings, there are a series of enlightening discoveries and deeper understandings and various degrees of awareness, one must experience in order to find a comfortable place within their own suffering. For example, understanding on a deeper level, that people can’t give you what they don’t have. People can spend their entire lives finding these little e moments that you can kind of call breadcrumbs, leading them towards a path inward, where that piece is found within their cave of suffering. Some, however, never stopped to find those breadcrumbs, and continue on an aimless path, always going further and further away from their own being their own core, struggling through harsh weather and all different types of environments. So again, my mind analysis summary. And action plan is not just a breadcrumb, but it’s a whole loaf of bread. It’s a collection of all the breadcrumbs that you would have had to find on your own on the path that you had no map for. It’s the bread that is packaged for you and fresh, so you don’t have to pick up breadcrumbs that have faced the wrath of the changing seasons. And instead of trucking along various rough and winding paths, meeting people and facing obstacles that distract you, or point you in the wrong direction. You can use this loaf of bread and digested at your own pace and use the energy received from it. So you choose to continue on the path that you can now Choose with more clarity. So that kind of like sums it up of what I think people really need to do, they’re on this path. And they don’t kind of pick up those breadcrumbs that are supposed to lead them inward back to their core back to their fundamental origin. And everything else is just distractions. So I think if I had to say a golden nugget, is really find out what path you’re on, are you just kind of aimlessly wandering around and kind of bouncing to people to person to vision to goal to, to anything that comes your way and a thought that you think you should follow. And I think the most important path you should follow is the one that’s leading you back inward to that core cave. That is, is really the peace within your suffering, because it’s that peace, that you’ll find your authentic self just waiting for you to reintroduce himself or herself to and have a conversation.
