Embrace Struggle | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_008



Today, I discuss how struggle, generally perceived as a negative, can actually be a positive in one’s life if one embraces it to learn the power of persistence and how to use lessons learned from overcoming obstacles to build honor, character, and integrity as essential components of one’s personality.

The Great Deception & Plato’s Cave | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_007



In Episode 7, I discuss how the story of Plato’s Cave and Siddhartha apply to today’s world more than ever and that the inability to distinguish between perception and reality is a deliberately manufactured affliction designed by the world’s wealthy. I further discuss the fact that it will truly be difficult for one to understand the unfolding financial market crashes in 2018-2019 without truly understanding the lessons of Plato’s Cave.

Think and Understand Truth | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_006



In Episode 6, I discuss how those in control of creating the financial, religious, academic and career paradigms that exist in modern society encourage us not to think through distracting us through mindless entertainment and social media options, but if we can sort through all the distractions, the truth will set us free. I address how this topic is relevant across a broad spectrum of topics, including cryptocurrencies and bitcoin, the exploitation of human trafficking networks and the disposable fashion industry, the systemic sexual harassment problem of the global entertainment industry, the NFL protests and Colin Kapaernick, and even issues of parenting.

Bitcoin is a Trojan Horse: The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast Episode_003, Part 2/4



Part 2 of of a multi-part series of the very real and serious potential for bitcoin to be a massive Central Banking/ government Trojan Horse to convince the entire world to embrace further currency enslavement through a 100% trackable cryptocurrency and to usher in a cashless, 100% digital currency world, please refer to the podcast episode download and access links below. Though I state in Part 1 that I believe bitcoin is a currency, as of the end of 2017/ start of 2018, it is much too volatile to even act as a currency, because price stability is necessary for any long-term currency. Consequently, at this stage, it is a purely speculative asset and cannot serve as a currency until price stability solidifies. Had I recorded this episode with the express purpose of producing a viral episode, I would have merely repeated my support for current blindly accepted mainstream narratives, such as the one that bitcoin is a decentralized, disruptive technology that is anti-banking. However, my focus in this series is to intelligently discuss the real problems of bitcoin’s unknown origins and the many problems with the mass media narratives that have been built and disseminated to not only cover up these unknowns but also to falsely turn these unknowns into knowns. Hopefully, I will fulfill these objectives regarding this very important subject matter, as our freedom depends on recognizing the truth when it comes to digital currencies. Enjoy!

Why the Royal House of Saud and The New BRICS Alliance Will Be Gold Bullish in 2018: The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast Episode_004



Today, in the Tao of SkWealthAcademy Podcast Episode_004, I connect the dots among a mountain of seemingly disconnected events: the boycotts of the Beijing OBOR (One Belt One Road) conference last May, the current price suppression of gold and silver, the current price mania in Bitcoin, the purging of the Royal House of Saud in Saudi Arabia, the shifting BRICS alliance where Saudi Arabia may become the new “S” and Iran may become the new “I”, the introduction of petroyuan and petroruble futures, and tentative new economic alliances between historical enemies like Saudi Arabia and Iran and its consequent impact upon current Middle Eastern wars in Syria and Yemen. Finally, I tie everything together regarding why these events are setting up gold and silver for a very bullish 2018 and a simultaneous fall in US stock markets, despite a current precious metals correction that has likely not yet seen its bottom and a current rise in US stock markets that has lasted all of 2017.

How to Cure Boredom and Loneliness: The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_002



In a world increasingly lived virtually in social media words with zero face to face interaction, loneliness, boredom, anxiety and depression are exploding in incidence among teenagers and young adults. Not only technology advance humanity and a lot of technology, including “smart”phones that are really dumbphones and weapons of destruction regress, instead of advance, humanity. In fact, such technology is often promoted to dumb down humanity and to deliberately weaken our minds. Today, I discuss the many ways we can focus on strengthening our minds to improve individually and to strengthen our communities to improve our environment. The solutions are there, but we are increasingly be led away from them.

The TPTB’s Manufactured Anger is a Ploy to Divide and Conquer: The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Episode_001



In SKWealthAcademy Podcast Episode_001, we discuss the harm on humanity committed by those in media and those that fund mainstream media when they attempt to funnel everyone into taking a side on every narrative, whether political, entertainment-related (sports and film), philosophical, or  business. Combined with the desire of Google’s Eric Schmidt to only return one “correct” answer to every question (which is not OUR answer but THEIR answer they want all of us to blindly obey and believe), the attempt to fan the fires on every single issue has had the desired effect of dividing and conquering us, keeping us blind to reality and to solutions, and keeping us instead, focused on conflict.

If you listen to this podcast and agree, please pass it on to others so we can stop the divide and conquer policies of those that head institutions like Google, YouTube, and mass media, and instead turn the tide of humanity away from these falsely manufactured conflicts and towards harmony and cooperation.

Billionare AI Hell or Commoner Red Pill Bliss? The Choice is Ours – The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast_001A



In today’s podcast, I discuss Silicon Valley and ex-Google executive Anthony Levandowski’s desire to create an Artificial Intelligence god and for humanity to worship his AI god while granting it absolute power over decisions regarding the future of humanity. I discuss why this is not a good idea given society’s current tendencies to drift beyond the line of morality due to its obsessions with celebrity, fame, and fortune. I also discuss the narcissism of billionaires and why they currently have wrongly led society astray with their warped definitions of “success” and non-intellectual definitions of “intelligence” and discuss why both these definitions need to include a significant component of emotional intellect to ensure that all human creation and pursuits benefit our communities and mother earth, rather than just benefiting the selfish needs of the individual at the expense of the rest of humanity. I also discuss the need to escape the confining limitations to our potential created by narcissistic billionaires that have created (1) false paradigms of schooling that do not promote critical thought or education, and (2) falsely-labelled “social media” worlds that create anti-social, anxiety-ridden young adults. I conclude this podcast with a discussion of the need to escape and live outside of these pre-engineered societal constructs into which all of us are born if we wish to realize our creative potential to create a world in which love, compassion, and respect for all life, including nature, prevails, and one in which a beautiful life is not a privilege for the 1% but a human right for all.

Introduction to The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast



Allow me to introduce the essence of The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast. My podcast is focused on breaking out of the artificially engineered constructs of society designed to dumb us down, such as institutional academics, strict career paths, and chasing after superficial constructs such as fame and fortune instead of sustainable constructs of far more substance such as happiness, inner peace, friendships and humanitarian activities. Please take a listen to this 6-minute and change introduction and subscribe if you find it mysterious, curiosity-inducing and intriguing!
