WEBVTT Kind: captions Language: en 00:00:08.960 --> 00:00:15.590 The Spartan mind strength podcast the podcast for mental grit and resilience 00:00:15.590 --> 00:00:20.900 hosted by Vie Binga and Tim Ganley -- 00:00:21.230 --> 00:00:29.900 Hello! Hi Everyone, this is Vie -- and this is Tim -- and we welcome you to another episode of our spartan mind strength 00:00:29.900 --> 00:00:34.160 podcast -- we're here in Florida we just spent the last day and a half traveling 00:00:34.160 --> 00:00:39.530 back from Greece to here and we're gonna be here for a couple days we decided to 00:00:39.530 --> 00:00:44.540 talk about ohi today -- Ohi! are you sure about that? -- 00:00:44.540 --> 00:00:55.010 No -- Ohi is the Greek word for no and since we just spent six weeks hearing 00:00:55.010 --> 00:01:01.129 that word pretty much all the time we figured we had to share it with you. Stay 00:01:01.129 --> 00:01:07.709 tuned we'll be right back. 00:01:07.890 --> 00:01:15.030 And we're back so today's episode is brought to you by Raja Ayurveda -- Ayurveda 00:01:15.030 --> 00:01:19.170 for the mind -- And since it is Ayurveda for the mind we're going to be talking 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:23.880 about emotional intelligence and we're going to be looking at emotional 00:01:23.880 --> 00:01:29.820 intelligence through an Ayurvedic aspect so please tell us what is emotional 00:01:29.820 --> 00:01:39.060 intelligence while I drink coffee -- Ayurveda says that emotionally when you look at 00:01:39.060 --> 00:01:47.580 people you see three main different types and you have probably heard these 00:01:47.580 --> 00:01:53.160 words before if you have listened to our podcast and the three different types 00:01:53.160 --> 00:02:08.550 are Vata Pitta kapha Vata emotionally has to do with keeping an open mind and 00:02:08.550 --> 00:02:14.730 will be going back and forth between mind and emotions because they are 00:02:14.730 --> 00:02:22.769 interconnected, our mind determines our emotions and vice versa so emotional 00:02:22.769 --> 00:02:32.180 vata is somebody who just doesn't sweat the small stuff has a wider perspective 00:02:32.180 --> 00:02:40.260 doesn't get easily offended doesn't get stuck with the little things and vata's 00:02:40.260 --> 00:02:50.760 key word is all about movement so movement being flexible. Pitta emotionally 00:02:50.760 --> 00:03:01.590 is somebody who has courage and strength and keeps moving forward no matter what 00:03:01.590 --> 00:03:13.350 pitta is driven so you you would think of more like emotional resilience -- I like that word -- yeah so 00:03:13.350 --> 00:03:21.330 vata is more emotional intelligence bigger perspective pitta is more 00:03:21.330 --> 00:03:29.520 emotional resilience you you just when you hear no when you hear ohi you 00:03:29.520 --> 00:03:34.800 figure out okay how can I make this happen how can I work with this person 00:03:34.800 --> 00:03:42.990 and make things happen even though they are telling me no right now and because 00:03:42.990 --> 00:03:47.850 pitta is all about transformation that's the key word -- transforming that ohi 00:03:47.850 --> 00:03:57.980 into a nai -- exactly your Greek is so good and then kapha emotional kapha is 00:03:57.980 --> 00:04:07.980 somebody who has empathy who has compassion who who's who says okay this 00:04:07.980 --> 00:04:15.180 person is telling me no right now because of who knows what's happening to 00:04:15.180 --> 00:04:19.169 them who knows what battle they have to go 00:04:19.169 --> 00:04:22.919 through right now so I'm not gonna take it personal and 00:04:22.919 --> 00:04:32.430 I'm just gonna have compassion I'm gonna have empathy and I'm gonna see how I can 00:04:32.430 --> 00:04:38.460 work with them how I can make them feel better actually it's more about the 00:04:38.460 --> 00:04:46.260 other person about understanding why the this adversity may be happening -- and that 00:04:46.260 --> 00:04:49.979 that would fall into almost like negotiations -- yes and emotional 00:04:49.979 --> 00:04:54.960 sustenance you would call that sustenance and exactly you would go 00:04:54.960 --> 00:05:02.479 into negotiation with them because kapha's key word is stability so 00:05:02.479 --> 00:05:08.880 sustenance so you have emotional intelligence in terms of vata emotional 00:05:08.880 --> 00:05:15.050 resilience in terms of pitta and emotional sustenance in terms of kapha 00:05:15.050 --> 00:05:23.300 -- so those things all together can create a -- a very very rich 00:05:23.300 --> 00:05:31.260 emotionally complete person -- and that makes you have a very happy -- a very happy 00:05:31.260 --> 00:05:36.540 life not just happy moments in your life you have a very happy life you have 00:05:36.540 --> 00:05:43.350 contentment -- very nice so we'll be right back with how you are when you're out of 00:05:43.350 --> 00:05:50.180 balance -- oh no but stay tuned it's gonna be interesting 00:05:50.960 --> 00:05:55.980 do you like what you hear the Spartan mind strength podcast is available on 00:05:55.980 --> 00:06:01.740 Apple podcast and all other

just talked about kapha pitta vata in balance 00:06:25.600 --> 00:06:30.490 -- yes -- and now can you give a little bit of what they are like when they're out of 00:06:30.490 --> 00:06:37.150 balance which is sort of like what most people are -- yeah and you know -- not all 00:06:37.150 --> 00:06:44.380 people -- we are all going to recognize ourselves in this but that's 00:06:44.380 --> 00:06:54.360 okay as long as we recognize ourselves vata, vata is all about movement so 00:06:54.360 --> 00:07:01.480 emotional vata out of balance is movement of emotions the emotions are 00:07:01.480 --> 00:07:10.230 all over the place good and bad all over the place they are not consistent 00:07:10.230 --> 00:07:17.110 emotional vata they just start crying right away without any significant 00:07:17.110 --> 00:07:22.570 reason when somebody tells them no somebody tells them something they don't 00:07:22.570 --> 00:07:30.510 like they feel offended and they just start crying turning within -- okay -- 00:07:30.510 --> 00:07:42.460 pitta out of balance is getting angry and yelling and screaming and disrespecting 00:07:42.460 --> 00:07:49.090 the person in front of them like like an immature 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:56.170 you know dictator like person -- an immature dictaror? -- an immature as opposed to a mature dictator yeah 00:07:56.170 --> 00:08:02.590 that didn't come out too good but you get the idea like a little kid throwing 00:08:02.590 --> 00:08:09.580 a tantrum that's you know if they don't get their it's their way or the 00:08:09.580 --> 00:08:22.720 highway pretty much but a lot of strong fire and then kapha out of balance kapha 00:08:22.720 --> 00:08:27.310 is all about stability and sustenance so kapha out of 00:08:27.310 --> 00:08:34.930 balance gets stuck they have emotional attachment so they are the 00:08:34.930 --> 00:08:42.520 person who's gonna hold a grudge forever they won't cry they won't scream and 00:08:42.520 --> 00:08:51.040 yell you won't know but they are going to hold that grudge they do not forgive 00:08:51.040 --> 00:08:58.540 easily -- is that the type of person that just sticks to the past always and doesn't 00:08:58.540 --> 00:09:05.830 move forward at all -- exactly that's yeah they that's they get stuck in the 00:09:05.830 --> 00:09:14.730 past but you don't necessarily know about it, it's very, it's kept more 00:09:14.730 --> 00:09:20.890 deep down -- and there's they and then that would also have the anger because the 00:09:20.890 --> 00:09:29.320 kapha kicks in -- yes it can bring out anger but but usually when the 00:09:29.320 --> 00:09:38.740 kapha is stronger than the pita the anger won't come out until a lot later so it's 00:09:38.740 --> 00:09:45.310 that so you'd rather you know having to choose between pitta out of balance or 00:09:45.310 --> 00:09:51.430 kapha out of balance you're safer with pitta out of balance because they are 00:09:51.430 --> 00:09:57.400 just gonna scream and yell and then they'll forget about it and then you're 00:09:57.400 --> 00:10:03.490 best friends and drinking together -- ok so I have a question is which one goes 00:10:03.490 --> 00:10:09.070 out of balance first? -- Oh vata vata is the quickest to go out 00:10:09.070 --> 00:10:15.760 of balance so the the person whose emotions are all over the place who gets 00:10:15.760 --> 00:10:22.320 sad very easily vata is typically the quickest to go out of balance and 00:10:22.320 --> 00:10:32.830 then vata can push pitta and then vata can turn into anger so it may start as 00:10:32.830 --> 00:10:40.450 vata and if it's not being recognized on time then it will push pitta 00:10:40.450 --> 00:10:45.279 and then you will have the anger -- and then pitta going out of balance can then 00:10:45.279 --> 00:10:51.310 push kapha out of balance? -- exactly and then and then you have serious problems you know if 00:10:51.310 --> 00:10:56.710 the three bioenergies like that go out of balance then you have serious 00:10:56.710 --> 00:11:01.900 problems that's why you want to take care of the vata as quickly as 00:11:01.900 --> 00:11:07.020 possible -- so I'm going to go in reverse though since you want to take care of 00:11:07.020 --> 00:11:13.690 that first I'm gonna go into what if kapha is out of balance what can you do 00:11:13.690 --> 00:11:21.070 to bring kapha back into balance so that you don't have the extremes? -- having 00:11:21.070 --> 00:11:27.910 having a solid kapha emotional characteristic is very important because 00:11:27.910 --> 00:11:35.980 kapha is your foundation you want you want that stability so to to make sure 00:11:35.980 --> 00:11:47.050 that you have you have a solid emotional kapha you you want to you want 00:11:47.050 --> 00:11:54.279 to pay attention to how how your emotions are you you want to look within 00:11:54.279 --> 00:12:02.560 and say have I been holding anything have I have I come into terms with my 00:12:02.560 --> 00:12:08.500 past or am I still mad at my father mother grandparents siblings and all 00:12:08.500 --> 00:12:17.560 that do I hold any grudges do I have any any traumatic experiences that I haven't 00:12:17.560 --> 00:12:27.130 let go of for example myself I had I had a doll house that I wanted my parents 00:12:27.130 --> 00:12:32.410 to buy me when I was a little kid -- and you still want it -- I still want the doll house 00:12:32.410 --> 00:12:39.070 and I remember how my mom didn't want me to get that doll house and she had 00:12:39.070 --> 00:12:43.690 explained to me why and even though I was really traumatized 00:12:43.690 --> 00:12:50.140 then and I was really annoyed I still thank her to this day I'm still 00:12:50.140 --> 00:12:59.380 grateful that she didn't let me have my way so so I am but some day I may 00:12:59.380 --> 00:13:05.830 get that dollhouse -- just to have -- just to have that so that's what you wanna be looking you know 00:13:05.830 --> 00:13:12.640 every so often do an inventory and say you know what am i what am i holding 00:13:12.640 --> 00:13:19.360 from the past and did I use that that negative experience did I use it for 00:13:19.360 --> 00:13:28.900 something good or am I still mad at this person and once you do that and you find 00:13:28.900 --> 00:13:34.920 what you didn't like and what you have learned and you come to terms with that 00:13:34.920 --> 00:13:43.990 not in a fake way but in a in a real way then you you have a really great start 00:13:43.990 --> 00:13:51.690 -- so that would be meditating focusing our thoughts -- yes exactly that would be yes that would be 00:13:51.690 --> 00:13:58.690 sitting quietly somewhere doesn't have to be in a dark room listening to om 00:13:58.690 --> 00:14:05.290 and stuff can be anywhere and just bringing back these memories and seeing 00:14:05.290 --> 00:14:12.880 if seeing how they affected you and if there is something you still don't like 00:14:12.880 --> 00:14:19.480 you are still not happy with see how you can you can learn from it and say 00:14:19.480 --> 00:14:25.630 well you know I might not have liked it then but am I happy with where I'm at 00:14:25.630 --> 00:14:33.460 now because where you are at now is because of everything that happened 00:14:33.460 --> 00:14:38.890 before and if you are not happy with where you are at now then do something 00:14:38.890 --> 00:14:46.720 about it other than bitching about it take action take action it's the only 00:14:46.720 --> 00:14:51.740 way otherwise ten years down the road -- you are still on the same place -- 00:14:51.740 --> 00:14:59.920 you'll actually be worse off -- so kapha is a good thing is to meditate think about 00:14:59.920 --> 00:15:08.120 what is pitta? -- in terms of how do you deal with pitta well first you got 00:15:08.120 --> 00:15:14.060 to deal with kapha then you with pitta 00:15:14.060 --> 00:15:20.000 -- or should we talk about vata which one's better? -- well kapha is your foundation kapha 00:15:20.000 --> 00:15:25.130 is what you want to make sure you have a solid foundation and then that will 00:15:25.130 --> 00:15:31.280 enable you to deal with pitta and vata and whether you're gonna deal with pitta 00:15:31.280 --> 00:15:38.630 first or vata first is what you look at your tendencies so if your tendencies 00:15:38.630 --> 00:15:45.890 are more to get angry and disrespect the other person then it's more the pitta 00:15:45.890 --> 00:15:53.420 that you wanna look at if your tendency is to turn within and start crying and 00:15:53.420 --> 00:15:59.330 feeling sorry for yourself then you deal more with vata -- ok but it's good to deal with 00:15:59.330 --> 00:16:06.380 kapha first or is it good to deal -- it is it's best to deal with kapha 00:16:06.380 --> 00:16:14.840 first because you can do that you can do that at any time and that's that's what 00:16:14.840 --> 00:16:23.210 gives you the introspection and dealing with the past and looking at any grudges 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:30.020 that you hold whether against yourself or others that will give you the 00:16:30.020 --> 00:16:34.310 foundation the sustenance to deal with the other ones 00:16:34.310 --> 00:16:44.740 -- okay so let's go to pitta -- pitta pitta is you wanna you wanna recognize that 00:16:44.740 --> 00:16:54.280 you are getting angry and that's that's what is the most difficult part 00:16:54.280 --> 00:17:01.820 sometimes is to recognize that you are getting angry and that you're rude at 00:17:01.820 --> 00:17:11.020 others and to stop blaming it on genetics and to stop blaming it on the 00:17:11.020 --> 00:17:20.300 society on the job on the boss on the part -- on anything external -- so you need to 00:17:20.300 --> 00:17:29.270 recognize that and then you then you you you have to be aware of when 00:17:29.270 --> 00:17:37.190 you're doing it and the easiest way is ask somebody that you are really 00:17:37.190 --> 00:17:45.380 comfortable with ask them to point that out to you when you do it and that's that's 00:17:45.380 --> 00:17:51.410 the easiest way to go about it but if you don't have can you still figure it 00:17:51.410 --> 00:17:56.000 out or do you have to have somebody around if you don't then if you don't 00:17:56.000 --> 00:18:02.870 have somebody around to ask for that then you just you you just make a point 00:18:02.870 --> 00:18:10.190 it may take a little bit more effort to to remind yourself that you're doing it 00:18:10.190 --> 00:18:17.590 that's it and you just you just pay attention so you you need to be able to 00:18:17.590 --> 00:18:23.840 identify the emotion is it anger is it frustration what is it 00:18:23.840 --> 00:18:32.480 -- so kapha is meditation pitta is more awareness -- yes pitta is more awareness -- so what is vata? -- vata is 00:18:32.480 --> 00:18:45.110 awareness also but awareness of your mood swings awareness of why do things 00:18:45.110 --> 00:18:52.150 throw you off awareness of why do you feel like a victim 00:18:52.150 --> 00:18:58.910 pitta is more of awareness of why do you behave like a dictator 00:18:58.910 --> 00:19:09.290 whereas vata is why are your emotions so scattered so all over the place what 00:19:09.290 --> 00:19:16.190 makes you so afraid -- so between awareness and meditation you 00:19:16.190 --> 00:19:22.909 can take care of all three of your doshas -- exactly -- so now that we know what 00:19:22.909 --> 00:19:29.240 it is in balance and what it is out of balance we'll be right back to talk 00:19:29.240 --> 00:19:35.840 about how you can become tridoshic -- exactly and have the richest emotional 00:19:35.840 --> 00:19:44.059 world possible stay tuned 00:19:44.230 --> 00:19:52.630 -- and we're back again so I've been told on many occasions that you're born like 00:19:52.630 --> 00:19:57.880 vata or you're born pitta or you're born and all these tests tell you whether 00:19:57.880 --> 00:20:01.990 you're vata pitta or kapha and that's what you're stuck with -- yeah 00:20:01.990 --> 00:20:07.330 and then you take herbs and blah blah blah -- so you're telling me though that we should 00:20:07.330 --> 00:20:15.490 be all three emotionally and -- mentally and even physically -- how can you be 00:20:15.490 --> 00:20:21.190 all three emotionally and mentally we'll get into physically another day but 00:20:21.190 --> 00:20:28.779 we're talking about the mind so emotionally and mentally how can that be? -- 00:20:28.779 --> 00:20:37.320 ah that's what the ancient Ayurvedic texts say actually the ancient 00:20:37.320 --> 00:20:45.399 Ayurvedic texts say that you want to have balanced doshas you want to have 00:20:45.399 --> 00:20:53.220 balanced bio-energies and of course when we say balanced it's it's a dynamic 00:20:53.220 --> 00:21:04.899 balance it's not a strict line if you do not have a dynamic balance of all three 00:21:04.899 --> 00:21:15.269 then chances are that whatever is more prevalent is going to go out of balance 00:21:15.269 --> 00:21:21.460 faster and especially if it is the vata because the vata is real quick to go out 00:21:21.460 --> 00:21:31.000 of balance and I mean think about it right we said that vata is about having 00:21:31.000 --> 00:21:40.029 a perspective having having flexible emotions and flexible mind having 00:21:40.029 --> 00:21:47.380 emotional intelligence pitta is about having that resilience that courage that 00:21:47.380 --> 00:21:56.200 strength to work with the others and kapha is about understanding the others 00:21:56.200 --> 00:22:00.640 about having the that empathy what's going on with 00:22:00.640 --> 00:22:06.520 them don't you want to have all three doesn't it sound that if you have all 00:22:06.520 --> 00:22:18.450 three you have a rich stable emotional world and then you know you don't 00:22:18.450 --> 00:22:25.120 become the emotional yo-yo with the up and downs you don't become the dictator 00:22:25.120 --> 00:22:31.720 you don't become the person who holds grudges -- and by just taking turmeric I 00:22:31.720 --> 00:22:37.360 should be able to take care of that problem -- no it's not gonna do it it's it's 00:22:37.360 --> 00:22:49.929 not gonna do it you you you have it's it takes more work than that you have to do 00:22:49.929 --> 00:22:54.460 the meditation you have to pay attention -- you have to learn yourself -- you have to 00:22:54.460 --> 00:23:03.700 learn yourself it's like know thyself I think Socrates said that -- so stoicism 00:23:03.700 --> 00:23:11.530 again is always a good fallback when we're talking about Ayurveda -- exactly stoicism is easier 00:23:11.530 --> 00:23:19.059 for us to relate to for a lot of the Westerners ah and going back to the 00:23:19.059 --> 00:23:25.179 Upanishads it's all about understanding yourself they they both say the same 00:23:25.179 --> 00:23:35.200 thing is meditate and pay attention -- and so you can become all three -- yes yes you 00:23:35.200 --> 00:23:42.790 can become all three as long as you know what your tendencies are because like 00:23:42.790 --> 00:23:51.550 you said yes we are born with certain tendencies that doesn't mean that we are 00:23:51.550 --> 00:23:57.910 perfect the way we are born and the way our tendencies are and that's the huge 00:23:57.910 --> 00:24:06.010 huge misconception in the commodity Ayurveda they say our prakruti what we are 00:24:06.010 --> 00:24:10.630 born with is what is perfect for us and that is 00:24:10.630 --> 00:24:18.980 absolutely not true what we are born with is the tendencies that we have it's 00:24:18.980 --> 00:24:25.820 not what's perfect for us what is then there is no such thing as perfect but 00:24:25.820 --> 00:24:32.900 what is the best for us is having the dynamic balance of the three bio 00:24:32.900 --> 00:24:41.300 energies so our tendencies can become great assets to help us cultivate what 00:24:41.300 --> 00:24:48.770 we are missing but if we do not understand our tendencies and if we do 00:24:48.770 --> 00:24:57.500 not control them we we are we are missing our purpose in life it's a sin 00:24:57.500 --> 00:25:02.720 actually we are missing our mark -- which then will have to go into Greek since 00:25:02.720 --> 00:25:10.040 you just said that what is the word in Greek for sin? -- it is amartia and if you break 00:25:10.040 --> 00:25:18.830 it down from ancient Greek and all that it is missing your mark missing your 00:25:18.830 --> 00:25:27.970 purpose in life and that is actually a sin it has nothing to do with the modern 00:25:27.970 --> 00:25:37.520 conventional religious concept of sin it is missing our purpose -- our Dharma -- 00:25:37.520 --> 00:25:46.310 our Dharma do not making the best of this human experience -- so if you do it 00:25:46.310 --> 00:25:51.620 right you get you start knowing who you are -- yes -- and after you know who you are 00:25:51.620 --> 00:25:59.090 you then can work on bringing everything together equally -- exactly -- and then you 00:25:59.090 --> 00:26:04.820 can assist other people -- exactly -- because you then can take somebody that's telling you no 00:26:04.820 --> 00:26:10.220 and through doing knowing who you are and doing all that you then can 00:26:10.220 --> 00:26:16.940 negotiate -- yes -- to get what you want and also get what they want -- exactly -- so both people 00:26:16.940 --> 00:26:23.690 leave happy -- yes helping both parties first you understand 00:26:23.690 --> 00:26:32.929 yourself the one party and then you can build the common ground so you can help 00:26:32.929 --> 00:26:40.190 the other party so you can both make the most of that human experience at that 00:26:40.190 --> 00:26:45.559 particular moment -- instead of just getting mad or crying or getting stuck 00:26:45.559 --> 00:26:53.200 on a no on an ohi -- and making yourself feel terrible and them feeling terrible and then 00:26:53.200 --> 00:27:01.129 making a mess of everything wasting that moment during this human 00:27:01.129 --> 00:27:10.580 experience being able to control your emotions and your thoughts that is 00:27:10.580 --> 00:27:17.299 the only way to help yourself and if you are not able to control your emotions 00:27:17.299 --> 00:27:25.970 then it means that you're addicted to them and addictions -- that's a whole 00:27:25.970 --> 00:27:34.850 different talk -- but it's true I mean we most of the time most people behave as if 00:27:34.850 --> 00:27:44.450 they are addicted to their emotions -- is there a crystal since we are going to 00:27:44.450 --> 00:27:53.720 be doing the show in Georgia for what is it December -- holistic holidays with the north georgia holistic 00:27:53.720 --> 00:27:57.500 guild -- and we're gonna be having crystals there

we carry -- it doesn't have to be crystal can be any 00:28:15.679 --> 00:28:24.769 practice that helps you become aware of your emotions that helps you control 00:28:24.769 --> 00:28:32.330 your emotions no we are not talking about crystals right now -- okay fine -- no ohi -- ohi -- and there is no 00:28:32.330 --> 00:28:39.860 common ground here it's my way or the highway -- fine -- we can always 00:28:39.860 --> 00:28:46.279 negotiate about it -- yes so I will go grab a crystal and think about it -- and we'll be 00:28:46.279 --> 00:28:52.659 right back with Tim having the crystal stay tuned 00:28:56.140 --> 00:29:07.690 -- and we're back to talk about emeralds I've won the debate -- it was a negotiation emerald 00:29:07.690 --> 00:29:16.059 the green stone emerald can also be grown in a lab so you have to be 00:29:16.059 --> 00:29:26.460 careful when you are getting emeralds you want real emeralds emerald is all about 00:29:26.460 --> 00:29:36.490 empathy and like we already said you want to build empathy you want to build 00:29:36.490 --> 00:29:47.799 your kapha bioenergy by meditating by studying your past and figuring out 00:29:47.799 --> 00:29:56.410 whether you hold any grudges or not it's going back to your history right we can 00:29:56.410 --> 00:30:04.570 only become better if we study history -- and that's where you get into you have 00:30:04.570 --> 00:30:09.030 to know yourself you have to know your history so you don't repeat it -- exactly 00:30:09.030 --> 00:30:15.700 exactly you have to become your own teacher and actually emerald is the 00:30:15.700 --> 00:30:23.710 stone for Wednesday and Wednesday is the day of Mercury -- it's also in the day of 00:30:23.710 --> 00:30:30.120 Odin -- yeah in Norse mythology the day of Odin -- and he lost his eye for knowledge 00:30:30.120 --> 00:30:37.169 -- exactly -- he gave up his eye to get knowledge -- for the divine and the divine is 00:30:37.169 --> 00:30:44.110 understanding ourselves it's not out there the divine is here as long as we 00:30:44.110 --> 00:30:51.910 can understand it -- and Mercury is also in Greek mythology is Hermes -- yes yeah 00:30:51.910 --> 00:30:59.720

Greek proverb that says that if you if 00:31:24.980 --> 00:31:35.659 you fool me no that's English right -- that's an English proverb -- yes I'm sure it started from ancient Greece -- what is it? -- In Greek it is " to dis 00:31:35.659 --> 00:31:42.200 examartein ouk andros sophou" which means to make the same mistake twice 00:31:42.200 --> 00:31:48.860 you are not a wise one how do you quit
