Eps 95: Warrior Training Improves Sex Life (Not Kidding)

this

There is a small but important difference between the benefits that I expected the 100 Day Warrior would bring to the participants and the benefits that they are experiencing. One of the effects I didn’t foresee is this one: the 100 Day Warrior training will improve your sex life.
Some of my participants have been dropping hints. And apparently they have been dropping their hints also outside of the locker room and the meditation hall at Evolve. Because my phone has been ringing and new participants are signing up.

I asked a handful of people from the creative industry to send me questions that they would like to be answered by the participants of the 100 Day Warrior. Out of approximately 30 questions I selected 13 that seem to cover most of the curiosity of most followers. Sanne went first, Esther was the second to answer them.

Sometimes back-up comes unexpectedly. The Dutch Bureau for Social and Cultural Planning recently released the results of a nationwide research “Differences in the Netherlands”. The research criteria included for the first time what they called “personal capital”. This category contains things like looks, confidence, strength, stamina, flexibility and charisma. The researchers were taken by surprise by the unexpectedly strong relationship between looks and success in life. People who look good and feel fit and confident are way more successful in life!

Eps 88: The Ego Is A Tricky Bastard

The ego is a tricky bastard. The ego goes around playing he is you, not only to the outside world but also to yourself. Many people can live a really long time without ever noticing or questioning this. But once you realize the some sort of imposter who tries to steer your vehicle in the way he thinks is best and that his way is not in your best interest al of a sudden the road becomes a lot more slippery.

Eps 86: New Vision

New Vision is what you experience if the veil of fear is removed. It is also known as the Beginner’s Mind. In the beginner’s mind there is no thought, “I have attained something.” All self-centered thoughts limit our vast mind. When we have no thought of achievement, no thought of self, we are true beginners. Then we can really learn something. The beginner’s mind is the mind of compassion. When our mind is compassionate, it is boundless.

Because, you see, the alarming fact is that any realization of depth carries a terrible burden: those who are allowed to see are simultaneously saddled with the obligation to communicate that vision in no uncertain terms: that is the bargain. You were allowed to see the truth under the agreement that you would communicate it to others (that is the ultimate meaning of the Bodhisattva vow). And therefore, if you have seen, you simply must speak out. Speak out with compassion, or speak out with angry wisdom, or speak out with skillful means, but speak out you must.

Eps 78: What Andre Agassi’s Comeback Can Teach You About Finding Your Purpose

Andre Agassi started exploiting the talent he was famous for in a different, more selfless way. I think this is an inspiring answer for people who struggle with their role in the world. Some of my participants of the 100 Day Warrior start to doubt the meaning of their work. It feels senseless. But I don’t think we should devaluate our talents. Instead we should figure out how we can help others with our talents.

Humanity is captivated by fear and desire. We suffer so much from greed and fear of deficit that the less fortunate perish and we damage our planet and physical and spiritual health. You could say our lack of consciousness is sickness. We need to learn to live in a noble, dignified and selfless way. Paradoxically it takes courage to leave our sickness behind and devote ourselves to health and harmony. It takes the attitude of a warrior.

Michael Henskens, my Warrior Brother and co-facilitator put together a very nice workout. He has been teaching all the physical classes to accompany the meditation classes that are taught by me. His assignment is to try to integrate the theme of today into the class he gives. What is so beautiful to observe is that we are all growing and it makes us better as a whole. As a group we are growing closer and everybody starts to understand what warriorship is about.
