    Russell Brand - Under the Skin

    Russell is a great guy and sometimes he has really great people as guests on his podcast.

    Here's the latest gem with Eckhart Tolle. I shall post more older videos later.

    Systems Of The Damned | Russell Brand & Charles Eisenstein - Under The Skin

    Author, environmentalist & Yale graduate Charles Eisenstein chats to me about alternative forms of economics, his skepticism of the mainstream climate change narrative and how we can create new systems outside of the norm that could work for everyone.
    He is author of "Sacred Economics" & "Climate - A New Story"

    It is obvious that egos are running the world. A reflection of nothing, huh. Oy vey!

    Russell Brand looks downright distressed ...

    How so? To me it looks like he has found inner peace, he used to be a really crazy and wild guy like Jim Carrey.

    It's funny that usually comedians are the most profound truth-tellers and they also realize what the whole "ride" is about.

    Russell is serious now. Not that he can't be funny or relax, but he's on a more serious path. In comparison it could appear to be distress.

    He said that he sacrificed the glamorous Hollywood life and acting, because mostly it was boring and unfulfilling. Spiritual path was calling him. That's the thing with the high material life, it only fulfills the ego, but not the soul. Also the ego is never satisfied with what it has, it always wants more. The soul needs it's own kind of food if there's a yearning and calling for it. The normal crap won't just cut it anymore.

    You're so right, Wind. I've watched folks chase ego satisfaction and "They can't get no...No No No!" "Hey hey hey."

    I have the very weird experience of getting absolutely no ego satisfaction when I look for it or seek it out. But when I'm not looking at all for an ego boost, that's when I get kudos or recognition or some kind of reward for my actions.

    It's like the world has actively decided to not reward any ego fulfillment when it's being sought out.
