Our Friendly World with Fawn and Matt show

Summary: In this episode: To hope is to intend with some possibility of fulfillment, to be optimistic, to expect a wish.  The noun form of it is a general feeling that some desire will be fulfilled.  All this is in anticipation that something will happen. We're waiting on something. Faith and hope are complimentary.  Faith is the substance of things hoped for. Faith is grounded in the reality of the past. Hope is looking to the reality of the future. While everybody is really trying to live their best lives, you can't, you don't always, you can try, you can strive. But the world has a nasty habit of giving you the yin and the yang, the good and the bad, the male and the female in equal portions in your life. Sometimes you're up, sometimes you're down We also talk about being vulnerable and how that is seen as weakness. We don't talk about any of this. And I wonder why. Is it seen as weakness? What is it? Is that we don't have time to even talk? Is it because there is no one around that's listening?   We talk about the work of Dr. Mario Martinez and how culture affects your health and one’s aging process. And it's all about belief; the belief system.   If we come together, we can create something that we thought was impossible. We can create a society that is peaceful.    Matt says there's a number of different switches we need to flip as an entire society. Uh, I think one of the switches we need to flip this, this concept of scarcity that I can't have something because somebody else already has it, or because, or thinking that there's such a limited pool of resources that I have to somehow or another, get it from someone else. I have to steal it. I have to grab an opportunity away from someone. So this is a whole kind of thought of scarcity. And I think we also need to stay very conscious of understanding exactly what success is. Success is not a $50 million home with 10 exotic cars and et cetera, et cetera, and children in Harvard, you know, I think that that's certainly a measure, but it's not the only measure of what success really looks like. Can we feel rich without the big mansion? Can we feel rich without the stuff? Remember that pain loss longing that you go through has a beginning, a middle and an end, and you should respect all three, especially, hopefully the end, if it's something bad.
