Exploring the Unconscious--Mining for Gold in the Unknown - Episode 48

Exploring the Unconscious: Mining for Gold in the Unknown – Episode 48

Exploring the unconscious is really like mining for gold.  All the emotions that we discover that are challenging represent the potential conversion of the unconscious to what is most essential. This week, Robert and Dave discuss how to recognize and begin to work with blind spots in our own lives as well as within the spiritual institutions, political organizations, or other circles you may frequent. We cannot wait for our leaders to be the ones that will question the traditions that we as individuals are a key part of.

Being Financially Free and Finding the Sweet Spot to Care for Ourselves and the World - Episode 47

Being Financially Free and Finding the Sweet Spot to Care for Ourselves and the World – Episode 47

This week, like all weeks, Robert requests some introspection from his listeners. What makes this week stand out is his additional ask, not to just reflect on self, but to reflect on the institutions that act as our spiritual guides through this life. Topics include the seemingly natural interconnectedness of religion, spirituality, and humanitarian work. Robert takes us ever further down this thought path to delve into the original spiritual premise of loving your brother and sisters as yourself.

Combining Regenerative Agriculture and Homelessness — Comprehensive Solutions to Bring the Bottom Up - Blog

Combining Regenerative Agriculture and Homelessness — Comprehensive Solutions to Bring the Bottom Up

The real Californian and national vision is to generate opportunities throughout the United States for grants and private funding for homelessness and low-income housing and combine these work opportunities with Regenerative Agriculture (RA) and other clean energy sources for the homeless. It is quite clear that the portion of the homeless population that isn’t dealing with the more severe issues of addiction or serious mental illness and a larger percentage of those that are low income are ripe candidates for this kind of community and work opportunity.

Exploring the Spectrum from Exclusivity to Inclusivity - Episode 46

Exploring the Spectrum from Exclusivity to Inclusivity – Episode 46

Robert continues exploring the spectrum from exclusivity to inclusivity. He holds a mirror for us to investigate how some of the core religions, politics, our sense of self, and various other key groups we are a part of, where we find community, may be the same sources that unwittingly foster the experience of being more separate and isolated. As individuals, as we live our lives, we care primarily about ourselves, which is perfectly natural, that’s one source.

Building Modern & Inclusive Spiritual Traditions – Episode 45

This week on The Missing Conversation we continue to penetrate into the dangers of exclusive teachings and the benefits of inclusiveness and unity. Gain insight with Robert and Dave as they open up about some of their early experiences with the charismatic guru archetype. They discuss the risks of blind faith in leaders who do not hold themselves to the integrity of their teachings and how seductive it can be to let yourself believe fully without any healthy doubt. If I just surrender here, all else will be taken care of for me.

Imagine A World Where We All Support Each Other - Our Survival May Depend on it - Episode 44

Imagine A World Where We All Support Each Other – Our Survival May Depend on it! – Episode 44

All the messengers of the key religions have an immense value and a unique angle from which they have something priceless to offer. In this compelling episode, Robert explores the idea of being aware of our conditioning and offers an alternative narrative where we can both observe our own wisest individual responses to our lives and return to the core values of our greatest teachers. We often become indoctrinated in our religions and we are so frequently shown how to live in a way that is quite isolated from our hearts and simple wisdom at a young impressionable age.

Why is inclusiveness the purpose of our life - Episode 43

Why is inclusiveness the purpose of our life? – Episode 43

How much have you wondered about the purpose of your life? What’s the reason for your existence in this world today, tomorrow and in both small and large ways? Perhaps, as Robert explores, everyone’s purpose can be fulfilled if we really understand and live with a greater sense of inclusiveness. Simply put, it’s a way of caring for people outside your circle of friends, your family, or your communities. It’s caring for our endangered planet; it’s caring for those in utter poverty and those who need our help the most.

The Cost of Allowing Poverty to Exist

The Cost of Allowing Poverty to Exist

According to numerous studies, the average homeless person costs the government and the taxpayers $3000 a month. The biggest tragedy about the cost of allowing poverty to exist is that in the majority of situations it can easily be solved. Whether it’s job training or giving people opportunities to work in so many areas that can set them up for success — we have not focused on eliminating poverty as our true priority. This could be in training for clean energy, regenerative agriculture, transportation, infrastructure, and so much more.
