AP 108: Alternative Living, Sustainable Lifestyle, Wearing Trash & Being The Change - Rob Greenfield

DOWNLOAD OR STREAM ABOVE

"You cant litter everywhere and then wonder why you have got a shitty life."

There comes a point in life when you look at someone and you really have to admire the mission they are on. There is a cause within all of us much bigger than ourselves, but usually we are to caught up in our own lives to even pursue the thoughts of change never mind act upon them. 

This man lives his life not only through his words he speaks but through his actions and incredible social tests. Many bring to life awareness of change, but few act in such feats as wearing a whole months worth of trash. 

Rob makes us ask the question what are we doing to really bring awareness to key issues affecting us all, I suppose when we look within we truly know what we need to do. 

Now lets dive deep in the mind of someone who really opens up the mind and give a feeling of blessing towards life and the luxuries that we have.

Observing Our Thoughts 5

DOWNLOAD OR STREAM ABOVE

This is the episode in which we let our minds go and just end up going deep in the realms of thought vs mind. What the hell is this game, we keep asking. Will we ever find out the answers? Are we programmed? The questions that the reality has given us in our minds we share with you on this episode. 

This could be one of the strongest thought provoking episodes we have ever done, so if you are not ready to be unplugged by the matrix that is society and you just wish to still be living a consumer based lifestyle, then i strongly advise against listening to this episode. This episode is for the dreamers, the thought provokers, the world changers, the people who can see more to the existence of life. 

We get lost in a lot of what society has planned for us, this episode made me question everything that society is, does it even exist, do we exist, should we exist? Now  what questions have shaped and changed your life? It is your time to listen, to be aware and to take into account what it truly means to be human and that is to ponder the existence of life.

AP 107 - Ancient Wisdom Within Native American Cultures - Hoksila Lakota (Lakota John)

DOWNLOAD OR STREAM ABOVE

Have you ever looked outside and realized this whole time, you have only being seeing a tiny piece of what life is about? Straight after this podcast I looked outside of my home and saw a much bigger picture. I noticed each and every thing in my view was brighter and more beautiful.  I had gained a much deeper and profound understanding of the universe.

This Podcast not only opens up your eyes, but truly reveals to you the blessings of life, and draws us to explore the reason for our existence on this beautiful planet.  Why are we here? What is our purpose? We can easily get lost and caught up in the illusion of success,  financial wealth and consumerism.  

Ultimately, our purpose in this lifetime is to contribute to the betterment of our fellow human beings and our collective home on this Earth.

So prepare to journey into the world of love, breathing in the freshness of gratitude, and feeling truly blessed to ‘be’ a human being.

ABOUT LAKOTA JOHN

Lakota-John.jpg

Hoksila Lakota, commonly known as Lakota John is a Native American whose heritage comes from Oklahoma and the Great Plains of North America. Many generations ago his people lived in harmony with all things Universal, ‘uni’ meaning One and verse being Song. When a system came in that crippled the people, making them dependant, some stayed and accepted the system and some left seeking broader horizons.

Rejecting the life of poverty and struggle he was born into, as a young man Lakota John fully embraced the illusion of glamour, bright lights and the fast pace of a big city. Trading in his cultural identity and the ways of his ancestors - a way of prayer and Spirit - he was lured by the seductive power of the city’s underworld, chasing the counterfeit lifestyle of money and self gain.

After travelling down many dead end roads in a reckless disregard for life, the light finally dawned, and Lakota awakened to the prompting of Spirit and ancient ancestors calling him back to the Red Road of Sobriety. Finding his innocence, or inner sense, by working through his past, he began to walk the straight and narrow path that leads to the sacred Tree of Life and reunion with the Highest Good, God or Wakan Tanka.

The impact his own restoration had on his life moved him to reach out to others, and ever since he has been involved in the mental health sector and working with keepers of the sacred pathways and knowledge for over twenty years. Through the lifestyle he once lived he is able to recognize the unseen enemy that binds and captivates the soul of man and woman through separation, suppression and sedation. Using the time-tested spiritual wisdom of his ancestors he helps guide others back from the dark world that he himself used to live in; the world of illusion, delusion and separation.

"One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood." Lucius Annaeus Seneca
 

So once again Dan and Chris, jump deep down into the rabbit hole that is our own minds. WE go  deep down on conspiracies, UFO's, time travel and all things that are Dan and Chris.

There comes a point in our lives in which we just need to sit back and analyse our thoughts, we do that on a consistent basis, but when the Ascend boys get together they really do let there minds drift.

WE are so lucky that we are in a point in time that it is possible to share and contact people from around the world but there comes a time when just being with a really good friend, in a one on one setting, and just letting your mind wander together, it is the truest sense on freedom that we own.

Make the most of the time with your friends because that's what truly matters in life, Chris and Dan have this expression the more you think you know the less you do know, but what we have found out that in the moments with close friends it is the closest thing to happiness.

AP 106 - IF DNA IS SOFTWARE, WHO WROTE THE CODE? - TOM BUNZEL

DOWNLOAD OR STREAM ABOVE

"Our own genomes carry the story of evolution, written in DNA, the language of molecular genetics, and the narrative is unmistakable." Kenneth R. Miller
 

What's more powerful the human mind or the computer? What  if I told you they are the same thing? Whatever it takes you need to understand that your mind is a computer and so is your body, it is an absolute  program that we have run deep inside, and the earlier program which we have is the DNA which is our programing software.

The whole understanding  of DNA is something incredible it makes us see our genetic make up from, you change that good your change the whole computer program which you are.

In his book, If DNA is Software, Who Wrote The Code? — The Profound Significance of Life’s Programming Language, Bunzel explains that software (or computer code) has identical properties to DNA (and may be a stark example of inadvertent biomimicry). Extracting meaning from different symbols — in this case A, C, T, and G, which represent chemicals or proteins — allowed scientists to resurrect extinct species by “copying and pasting” DNA code.

If an organic programming language has been at the heart of evolution, then Mind must be the programming energy.

Tom Bunzel, explores the intriguing concept of Mind mimicking matter, as far as HTML and DNA are concerned. That's to say, Mind has created “code,” so what created DNA?

Observing Our Thoughts 3

"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death."                                 Robert Fulghum

The experience of going down to the Mind, Body, Spirit Festival in Birmingham, was a real eye opener for Chris and Dan. we met some incredible people, and had an experience that really help alter our perception of what spirituality means in modern society, there are many people doing some incredible things really altering peoples lives with valuable knowledge, wisdom, advice and tools. 

There was also the side to the experience, which felt very much like the modern day society that Chris and Dan was trying to avoid. The whole selling and being in the environment where spiritual connection was not the acquired goal, but it was an event dominated around money. Some people was really trying to make a difference. 

Anyways the beauty is that spirituality, is not something that can be bought, it is not something which you find, its not something that you have to visit, spirituality is not something you learn, spirituality is already fundamentally inside each and every one of us, when we just be present in the moment. just one moment of focusing on your breath, truly show's you how powerful you are. You are something completely powerful beyond measure, and you never need a credit card to remind you of that. 

That is why this episode of Observing Your Thoughts can be so powerful, if you really listen and take in the advice being said, hopefully with a few laughs along the way. Stay strong and emerge yourself in the present moment, it's where knowledge awaits.

AP 105: Power of Chanting - Nikki Slade

DOWNLOAD OR STREAM ABOVE

“Many secular observers and spiritual practitioners alike mistake mystical chanting as a kind of anthropological curiosity or interesting musical diversion from secular mainstream entertainment, sometimes labeling it 'world' or 'folk' music. But uttering or chanting spells, mantras or prayers shouldn't be regarded as a romantic excursion to a distant past, or faraway place, or as an escape from our everyday stresses, for relaxation or entertainment. These sounds are meant to be experienced as the timeless unity of energy currents. The chanting of ancient esoteric sounds enables us to realize we are never separate from the one continuously existing omnipresent vibration of the cosmos.” 
― Zeena Schreck

They say that before there was anything, there was only sound. It is said that before the creation of the universe there would only of being sound or vibration. (How true that is I dont know) but then come's the big BANG, with the emphasis on BANG. Sound has always played a role in our existence and for this we are universally connected to it, it truly is so amazing.

Bringing it back to our current time's its interesting how we connect with Chanting and OM's because they use similar vibrationial tones in the body, kind of centering us back to our original roots, it is also said that when we chant OM's that we tap into this Chanting (mantra) we tap into an ancient technology that, as modern science reveals, connects us in a very real way to the farthest reaches of the universe.

Welcome Nikki Slade, who immediately warms you with her loving presence, what an amazing woman to be around, her understanding of the ancient practice of chanting is somewhat beautiful, which in turn lead Chris and Dan to a collection of powerful understandings of the Universe, sound and ultimately ourselves. 

or as Nikki says "The formula is simple. When you are connected to your authentic voice, you naturally feel good and attract more wonderful things into your life. When you are disconnected you feel bad and it can quickly become a downward spiral.  The great news is …There are so many ways you can connect yourself to a higher vibration. Through prayer, dance, movement, yoga, meditation, eating healthy food, exercise, gratitude exercises – there’s lots you can do. However one of the quickest and most overlooked ways is through sound – and more specifically – through chanting."



ABOUT NIKKI

Nikki Slade is a leading pioneer in the field of chanting, core voice and sound work in the UK. Nikki has inspired thousands of individuals to chant and has led chanting workshops for many corporations including M&C Saatchi, Deutcshe Bank and Cisco.

AP 104 - I Am Not This Body & Not This Mind - Antarma

DOWNLOAD OR STREAM ABOVE

“Music, once admitted to the soul, becomes a sort of spirit, and never dies.” 
― Edward Bulwer-Lyttonq

Welcome to the coldest episode we have ever done on the Ascend Podcast, but luckily the knowledge we did kept us warm. Literally it was one cold November afternoon, and as we battle'd the sun for its light heading down on the N.E.C in Birmingham, we record one of the most powerful episodes we have ever done.

Just being in the presence of Antarma, made us feel lucky to being doing this show. What a incredible human being who transcend's this  beautiful aroma of positive energy, any story which he share's with you, your captivated by. From his story when he first went to a football game, to when he was living on the streets, he is one interesting and beautifully grounded human being who is ready to share the best story of all, the one of Love. 

We met Antarma on the stage in the mind body festival, he was using his African Drum (Sorry cant remember the name brother) instrument of African descent, and the meaning of the drum means bringing people together. And the music certainly did that, there was crowds of people igniting with this powerful energy that  flowed through all of us. 

What a powerful and enriching experience, so maybe now it's just time to listen about how the music and soul transforms us all, and just chill for a minute and relax. Listen to the power, coolness and rawness of Ascend Live with Antarma Buckland.

EPISODE BREAKDOWN

  • The joy of Music 
  • Living in a music filled world 
  • Busking on the street 
  • Influenced by all different cultures and all different styles
  • The first and last football match
  • Controlling the audience 
  • Strength through music and guidance through rhythm 
  • Loving what you do 
  • Loving Life

ABOUT ANTARMA

Antarma.jpg

Without a doubt being one of the coolest guys, we have had on the podcast, Antarma is a London born musical genius and an awakened mind, who spreads his message through the power of songs. He breaks free from traditional music and current music, and empowers his own unique style on each and every song he records. One powerful human being

We all come to a point where in a matter of moment's we find upon meeting someone of this individual to be of great importance, Todd was that man. Even though he wouldn't say that, his incredible wisdom and knowledge of the mind and the universe left us in awe. We headed down the mind body spirit festival in Birmingham UK to meet some incredible people, and Todd was certainly that. 

He was even so kind of us to take us on a journey through the mind in his device called Pandora's Star. the most powerful psychedelic trip without using that of psychedelics. Thank you Todd we are truly grateful. 

So ladies and gentlemen, strap yourself in for an epic podcast journey into your own mind, a place where you can find everything from your complete destruction, to the incredible infinity of love. The only question remains, what does your mind say about you?

AP 102 - Mindfulness in the Age of Distraction - Will Johnson

DOWNLOAD OR STREAM ABOVE

We are so lucky to blessed to be on this planet, even for the short space of existence of 80-100 years we are constantly reminded that our eventual time on this planet will demise and life itself will move on. This is why we are so happy that during this time of existence we use that time to explore the minds of some incredible thought teaches and one person who we are really glad we talked to was the incredible Will Johnson

Will Johnson practices embodiment training which is a path of awakening that views the body as the doorway, not the obstacle, to personal growth and spiritual transformation. Through combining the orientation of Western somatic therapy with Eastern meditational practices, embodiment training leads you to discover your natural embodied state, like the Dzogychen rigpa and the Buddhist sunyata, the embodied state has being described as "Like coming home"

This is one of those "coming home" episodes where we look back and understand what the body, mind and this whole damn beautiful human experience is all about.

  • Living with spirituality
  • Becoming more centred with the Earth
