How to Find a Life of Purpose | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_021



I’ve often heard people describe the meaning of life as two purposes that reside at the opposite ends of the ideological spectrum. Many people have said that the meaning of life is struggle, including Jordan Peterson, someone with one of the largest followings on YouTube at the current time. I have heard other people state that the meaning of life is to find happiness. In my opinion, the meaning of life is neither of these choices. The meaning of life is to find a life of meaning. This process will involve both periods of happiness and struggle, but the finding a purpose to life brings a greater feeling of serenity to your times of happiness and makes your times of struggle more bearable. In the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_021, I discuss the various ways we can all find purpose in our life. One way to find purpose is to form a deep sense of community with others and then work towards achieving common goals. But to form a community with others that can give one’s life a strong sensse of purpose, one must utilize critical thinking and pursue self-education.

 

As well we must have a society of ethical people if we are to encourage people to find a live of purpose within society instead of going off grid as many people that want to live ethical lives have done because they feel it is impossible to live an ethical life within society. In the last podcast I spoke about how immorality and a lack of ethics is being praised, promoted and embraced within society at large, a disturbing trend of modern day life today. In this podcast, I also address how we can perform our civic duty to reverse this trend and create more ethical societies that provide a life of dignity for its members. So join me in this week’s tao of skwealthacademy podcast for a fascinating discussion about finding meaning in our lives.


Why Every Parent Should Enroll His or Her Child in Martial Arts | the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_019



In today’s the tao of skwealthacademy podcast, episode_019, I revisit a topic that seemed to be immensely popular in the past, The Lessons I Learned From Martial Arts That I Still Use Today. I discuss the myths about martial arts embraced by non martial-artists that, for example, people use martial arts to bully others, which is against the entire creed and ethos of martial arts. Instead I return to the principles that constitute the essence of martial arts – discipline, respect, honor, courage, and humility – and how these principles have helped me cope and conquer periods of struggle throughout my life. Furthermore, I explain my theory about why I believe that very parent with a young child should enroll their child in a marital arts class because of the invaluable life lessons that will be instilled in a child at a young age from martial arts training, including helping to mold an ethical, moral and courageous young adult. I sincerely hope that you enjoy this podcast as much as others have enjoyed my previous podcasts on this same subject.

Improve Your Life Immediately By Eliminating this One Huge Time and Energy Waster | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Epi_013



Today, in Episode 13 of the Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, I discuss the one massive time and energy waster in which nearly all of us engage on a daily basis. Simply eliminating  or vastly reducing this aspect from our lives is the easiest way to free up time so that we may reach our life potential and maximize our happiness. As odd as this sounds, sustainable happiness in life requires discipline to achieve.

The most time and energy wasting task is not only a time waster, but it also stunts our intellectual growth, our creative development, and our sense of community with others, an aspect of life that is essential to avoid depression. So eliminating this one huge time waster not only will increase our productivity, but it will also massively improve our happiness and life while eliminating large portions of anxiety and depression.

The 3 Elements to Live a Fearless, Valuable Life | The Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, Epi_012



Today, in Episode 12 of the Tao of SKWealthAcademy Podcast, I discuss the 3 elements necessary to live a fearless, valuable life – community, self-education, and love. I elaborate on why those in power economically and politically in all nations are so intent on ensuring that these 3 elements are missing from all of our lives, the tactics deployed by them to ensure their absence in our lives, and the steps we can take to ensure that we embrace these elements and live a unique life distinct from the rest of society.

I cover (1) the distinctions between schooling and education, (2) the reasons why no one should ever become a parent without these three elements, and (3) the reasons why these 3 elements alone are not enough to produce a memorable life full of a state of flow and harmony, but require a deeply understood and conceived moral framework to accompany them.

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.
