 Episode-2489- Dealing with Life’s Transitions | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:29:56

Today I was thinking about a lot of things.  One was a friend a very close friend dealing with a major life transition.  That got me thinking to many of my own transitions.  This included realizing that I was on my own as a teenager, joining and leaving the military and moving to Texas.  I also thought about getting what I thought was a dream job, moving my family for it, then losing it due to a buy out.  My son growing up and leaving home, moving to Arkansas and moving back to Texas and more.  Including lost friends, failed relationships and more. As one who believes in synchronicity I was not surprised when the most recent issue of Self Reliance Magazine was on my counter this morning and I opened and saw a column by Dave Duffy called, “Reflections on the Gift of Life”.  I will admit as I love Dave, have met him a few times and read his work for almost 3 decades the first thing I did was scan the article for any warning sings that is was a farewell.  I was very happy to read this line while skimming, “I’m now 75 and healthy so still have some time left to work on my list”.  I then read the rest which was a list of 14 life goals Dave had for himself in life, 11 of which he has done quite well with. All this led to to today’s topic, Dealing with Life’s Transitions.  I thought about how many people I have met in this audience who have had to deal with the loss of family, PTSD from their service, divorce and more and how they have told me that TSP has been so good for them.  So for everyone out there who has had struggles with life’s constant change, today’s show is for you. Join Me Today to Discuss… The Dave Duffy article that made me choose today’s topics Some of my transitions and what I learned from them Realizing that I was on my own at 16 Joining the Army at 17 and coming home at 20 Moving to Texas and being dead broke for the first year The loss of a few good friends Making it to Arkansas and having to come back to Texas The mindset of transition You can’t change yesterday, only learn from it What ever control you have exists today and tomorrow Focus on what there is to be done, on what you can do Set goals, make some relatively easy and get on with them Some Resources I Recommend Illusions and JLS both by Richard Bach Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch (Book – Movie) A Knight’s Tale – No I am Not Kidding (Movie) Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman Things that make me let go of the past and be in the now My wife Gardening Fishing – The Spiritual Fisherman The Stars A Forest Spirko’s 29th Law of Life – “Your past is not a liability.  Those who have achieved the most always seem to come from a life that involved struggle, poverty or adversity.  Usually it is all three.”   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com Something’s Coming On – Joe Cocker   Sponsors of the Day Western Botanicals Bulk Ammo   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone.

 Episode-2485- John Bush on Kratom | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:34:18

John Bush began his career in activism in 2002 questioning the official account of what happened on 9/11 and speaking out against the wars in the Middle East. He was introduced to libertarianism by the good Dr. Ron Paul in 2007. As he learned of anarchism and agorism he focused his energies on promoting alternative institutions like cryptocurrency and mutual aid groups. His interest in natural health led him to discover kratom and CBD, a natural remedy which he sells through his company Brave Botanicals. As of late he has been promoting self-growth and entrepreneurial strategies and helping people to overcome addiction. Today John joins us to discuss kratom and its use, risks, benefits and side effects.  I decided to bring John on because while he is a kratom proponent he is also honest that it does have some risks and can be problematic if used inappropriately especially by some people.

 Episode-113- TSP Rewind – The Failure of Individual Leadership in America | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:31:59

Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes. Today’s episode was originally Episode-1409- The Failure of Individual Leadership in America and was first published on August 20th, 2014. The following are the original show notes from that episode… I hear daily about how our leaders have failed us. From the latest Obama memes on facebook to the fear and loathing of a republican congress and I just sigh. Yes all of Americas problems are from 435 Representatives, 100 Senators, 1 President and his cabinet. We get no blame ourselves at all. Well, wait there are plenty of others to blame, the people on welfare, the liberals or conservatives depending on who we are, the illegal immigrants, the talking heads and the reality TV morons, it is there fault too! In other words as Homer Simpson puts it below! “This is everybody’s fault by mine”. This really is how people think, I have seen it over the years. For instance in 2012 I remember a report that people who had been bailed out of their mortgage problems and then ended up behind a second time were polled as to how responsible they were for their financial problems. Over 85% said they bore little to no responsibility for their issues. Said people were attacked on facebook and mocked, etc. Classic dichotomy, classic class warfare and most people fell for it. This report didn’t show that underwater home owners were irresponsible, no it showed that WE AS AMERICANS are irresponsible. Today we take a hard look at individual leadership and how to regain it in a nation that has lost its mind.   Resources for today’s show… Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TSP Gear   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2481- Half Acre Homesteading – Part Four – Plant Propagation | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:29:01

Okay I am calling this series “Half Acre Homesteading” because marketing. The use of two words in a 2-3 word phrase is good at grabbing attention, think “Taco Tuesdays” or anything in that vein. You don’t need a half acre to make today’s show work for you, you can do most of this on even a postage stamp lot, many do. Likewise even if you have a lot more land, then this is what we call zone one design. Creation of a 1/20th – 1/2 acre system that you spend the majority of your activity on and hence it is ultra productive and gives you the greatest ROI on your efforts. I will be covering techniques, varieties of vegetables and perennials, tools, etc. today but it is also a lot about how to think about the concept of small property homesteading. Today we continue with part four of this series and discuss plant propagation for independence, cost savings and skill set development. Join Me Today to Discuss… Intro Segments YouTube Channel of the Week – Happen Films Call the JERK Line at 877-644-1345 The reason for propagating your own plants Reduce expenses Produce more food For a profit For independence and skill development Why you should not try to self propagate everything at first Primary methods of propagation From seed Rooting cuttings Layering Division Grafting Propagation Systems Indoors with lights Green Houses, Cold Frames, etc. Misting Systems Grow beds Aquaponics based propagation “The Right Spot” If growing food is like printing money, propagation is the printing press   Resources for today’s show… Follow Life With Jack on Instagram TSP Facebook Group Join the Members Brigade Join Our Forum Walking To Freedom TspAz.com Let Us Begin – John Denver and Alexander Gradsky   Sponsors of the Day Butcher Box Backwoods Home   Remember to comment, chime in and tell us your thoughts, this podcast is one man’s opinion, not a lecture or sermon.

 Episode-2476- Half Acre Homesteading – Part Three – Herbs | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:28:00

Okay I am calling this series “Half Acre Homesteading” because marketing. The use of two words in a 2-3 word phrase is good at grabbing attention, think “Taco Tuesdays” or anything in that vein. You don’t need a half acre to make today’s show work for you, you can do most of this on even a postage stamp lot, many do. Likewise even if you have a lot more land, then this is what we call zone one design. Creation of a 1/20th – 1/2 acre system that you spend the majority of your activity on and hence it is ultra productive and gives you the greatest ROI on your efforts. I will be covering techniques, varieties of vegetables and perennials, tools, etc. today but it is also a lot about how to think about the concept of small property homesteading. Today we continue with part three of this series and discuss herbs.
