2043: Rudy Daniel - Thought Leader and Creator of the Affirmate App
As Rudy puts it… My journey of self-exploration accelerated in my mid-thirties, a point in life where I questioned the deeper meaning of existence. At that juncture, I sensed a desire for more profound experiences, realizing that accumulating possessions and following the same patterns lacked depth and meaning. In this quest, I delved into the philosophies of Eastern traditions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Zen, Tao, and more, alongside exploring Western philosophy, science, and the arts. Engaging in extensive reading and embracing various mindfulness practices, I gradually uncovered a profound approach to living—a deeper connection with the universe that changed my perception of life.   Meditation Coaching Schedule Time with Thom (Complimentary consultation)   Links from the Episode: Get the Affirmate App for iPhone and Android (phone link only) Read "Behind the Mask, Behind the Mind: Discover who you really are” on Amazon   Become a Super-Fan of the Show Support ZEN commuter and get access to patron bonuses THANKS FOR LISTENING!

2042: Martin O'Toole Teaches Us How to Die Happy (R)
Martin is “a man on the mend”, a recovered alcoholic with a debauched and materially-immersed past life of spilt milk under burnt bridges. Moments from suicide, his Beagle talked him out of it. This rock-bottom moment launched a phenomenal journey of self healing and personal transformation. "If you told me I had five minutes left to live, I'd spend that time basking in gratitude for the incredible gift of life. I want others to have that choice too.” - Martin O’Toole Through his experiences of the “pointless pursuance of success”, Martin uncovered the alchemy of everlasting happiness. Understanding the depths of depression and contrasting heights of delight, his compulsion to share his story has resulted in a podcast and brand new book, How To Die Happy.   Meditation Coaching Schedule Time with Thom (Complimentary consultation)   Links from the Episode: https://www.martinotoolewriter.com/ Become a Super-Fan of the Show Support ZEN commuter and get access to patron bonuses THANKS FOR LISTENING!
