Brandon reads Chapter 9 of "Oneness" which contains an interesting allegory: life as a buffet that we visit with our clean plates, over and over again, looking to sample any of the delicious offerings we call contrast—and how we can content ourselves with simply "being" in between servings of this endless buffet.
Omar Makram was first featured on ep. #224 and returns to talk about his new book, Transcending the Maya Matrix. He gives Brandon some background on the book, which references both the famous sci-fi movie and the Hindu "maya" concept of illusion, and expounds upon the core of his writing which entails trusting and cultivating our innate guidance.
Brandon and Chris Jackson address a couple of wonderful questions from listeners who ask how one can continue expanding and getting more abundance in one's life if there is a perception that one already has enough, and a lovely message from a listener who dreamt of an awakened Earth and wondered how we can take his beautiful vision into the realm of tangible reality.
Brandon is "given" the theme of today's episode as an exploration of all things related to identity, something we all consider so integral to who we are as human beings, but which in the end is more akin to a role we act out in a play, with a relative usefulness that does not ultimately define nor limit our boundless spirits.
Emily Stroia is a spiritual teacher, author and founder of the online school Intuitive Soul Academy to help people tap into their intuitive gifts and heal past trauma. In this episode she tells Alexa her story, how she found her way to the podcast and she passes on some of what she has learned and gained, from this community and elsewhere.

Brandon reads Chapter 37 of "Oneness" which talks about conflict resolution without compromise and highlights the need to dig deep and be authentic when searching for lasting peace.

Brandon and Chris Jackson have another freewheeling conversation, talking about everything from the most subjective aspects of the self to ongoing shifts in our societies and civilizations, all tied together by a loose thread of "solar" associations and at one point discussing the "Be-Do-Have" paradigm that most people understand backwards (as "Have-Do-Be") from the way it was intended.
Brandon reads reviews and addresses listener questions, in particular one about how certain medications could interfere with one's spiritual development, and shares a great Abraham-Hicks clip that talks about the underlying, energetic causes for any ailments and illnesses that may afflict us.
Ross Cessna is a self-described "techno-shamanic gutter poet" who struggled with mental illness at one point in his past, but it would be difficult especially for members of the Facebook group to tell this, as Ross often writes there and elsewhere online with a clear and insightful voice.
