585. Doug Scott

Buddha at the Gas Pump

Doug Scott, LCSW, works as a mental health counselor in his private practice in Dallas, Texas.  After graduating from college in 1997, he served as an international volunteer for two years in Bluefields, Nicaragua. This intense experience changed his life and he returned to the US to pursue graduate studies in clinical social work and pastoral ministry at Boston College. The nexus of spirituality and psychology have always intrigued Doug since childhood and he brings this sensibility to his counseling practice.Doug grew up Catholic and was always drawn to the mystical lineage within this belief system.  He had experiences with Jesus, Mary, and angels at an early age. He was also secretly attracted to all things paranormal and would spend many hours reading topics such as reincarnation, ufology, OBE’s, NDE’s, ghosts, ESP, pyramids, and other areas.One evening in 2013, he felt a presence that invited him to listen to a Buddhist chant, which came as a surprise since, at that time, he had not explored other faith systems. He was guided to listen to Om Mani Padme Hum and as the chant unfolded, Doug saw a golden dew overshadow him and activate him in a way that was new.  This marked the next chapter in Doug’s life.A few months later, Doug was led to the Law of One material and immediately saw that it provided the clearest, most undistorted, exploration of the Perennial Philosophy that he’d ever come across. It also cast a wide net to include all of the paranormal things that intrigued him and made it possible for him to put all of the different threads in his life together in one seamless garment.Since 2015, Doug has written a blog (cosmicchrist.net) that explores the synthesis of the Law of One material with mystical Christianity and psychology.  He sees his vocation in this lifetime as a bridge-builder between conventional concepts and cosmic metaphysics to help people who seek clarity, normalization, and validation for their own journeys.Main points discussed: Tapping into the imaginal realms, the subtle realms, through the “heart-eyes.” The chakras of the Logos, God, are densities. Densities are different bandwidths of consciousness. Nature of the Infinite Creator as sentient Love, or Logos. Diversification within the Holographic Universe allows the Infinite Creator to experience Itself, infinitely. Christianity’s need to move into the mystical and nondual Consciousness is measured through degrees of knowing we are one with all, with God, and are God experiencing creation. Brief descriptions of God’s chakras (“densities”). Pantheism AND Panentheism are both true. Third density’s veil-of-forgetting leads to development of faith, notions such as “Original Sin,” and more intense experiences for third-density humans. The novel idea of “finity” against the backdrop of infinity is a way for the Infinite Creator to experience Itself. Many people have incarnated to be midwives to help birth Earth’s 4th. Shift into 4th density is a gradual process that includes an ever-increasing number of 3rd/4th densities double-bodied people. Some of Doug’s background: 1) dual master's program at Boston College in clinical social work and pastoral ministry, 2) childhood UFO encounter, 3) alcohol recovery leads to greater self-insight, 4) mystical experience in 2013 of Om Mani Padme Hum and the golden dew, 5) Law of One material (lawofone.info) and Daskalos material (researchersoftruth.org)Brief description of Wanderers: humble servants from 4th, 5th, or 6th density who incarnate in 3rd density to aid. Jesus as a Wanderer had a unique mission known as the Jesus Event. The greatest service as an awakening being is to embrace the full plenum of God disguised as our life and ordinary things. Nothing “up there” that is not fully present “down here.” Triune nature of the Infinite Creator: Transcendent to all things, Incarnated as all things,

Unlocking the Power of Video Storytelling with Doug Scott

On Brand with Nick Westergaard

“I don’t think enough thought goes into how to translate brand style guides into visual videos.” As the founder and CEO of Tectonic Video with a background in brand strategy, Doug Scott helps nonprofit brands worldwide unlock the power of video storytelling. We discussed video, social media, brand style guides, and more this week on the On Brand podcast.  About Doug Scott Doug Scott is the founder and CEO of Tectonic Video, a leading video agency for nonprofits. His team works with nonprofits across the US and around the world to create award-winning videos that drive results. His work has been featured in The New York Times, NPR, CNN and AdWeek and he is a frequent guest lecturer at Stanford University on the power of storytelling for nonprofit organizations. Episode Highlights Why is video so effective and engaging? “Video continues to be ascendant in all brand communication because video is extremely efficient. It can show in seconds what it takes thousands of words to say.” Video by the numbers. Doug shared some compelling stats with us including the fact that Facebook posts with video are viewed five times longer than static content. Furthermore, the preference for video increases as age decreases. A video-centric brand style guide. “I don’t think enough thought goes into how to translate brand style guides into visual videos. There’s often nothing about visual video storytelling. What’s the brand experience for video and how does that look different?” The three types of video every brand needs. First, there’s the brand overview video. “This is a restatement of the values of your brand.” Second, testimonial videos from customers. “How do you want those stories told?” And, finally, a campaign video reinforcing your current key messaging. Doug also shared other “nice-to-have” videos including internal HR and culture videos and social media videos. “Production doesn’t always correlate to success.” Many often feel that they have to make the best, most-polished video to ensure success. “Your iPhone is fine a lot of the time,” Doug shared. Why? “A visual language has been established for (low-production) iPhone videos on social media. They also feel very authentic.” What brand has made Doug smile recently? “I might upset some of your listeners with this one,” Doug warned before sharing that The Lincoln Project—a group of “disaffected Republicans” creating anti-Trump videos—is the brand that has made him smile. Like our conversation during this episode, it came back to the group’s consistent visual voice across their videos. “You know right away it’s one of their videos.” To learn more, go to tectonic.video.

The man who gave me a chance (Doug Scott)

...but seriously

Doug Scott gave me my start in advertising.I was a 24-year-old former personal assistant to Tucker Max, with zero advertising experience and no clue what a "dial in" was. For Doug, that didn't matter. He didn't hire normal people. He took on restaurant managers, journalists, and swiss army knives of all kinds. I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for him.But I gotta be honest, Doug terrified me. He's a passionate and extremely smart dude who was determined to change the industry. And I was an insecure adolescent who just wanted him to like me. But when we chatted, it felt like I was talking to an old friend, a peer almost. I didn't realize how much I had grown and the confidence I built since first walking through the doors of Ogilvy. The best part is, during those 6 years, Doug grew just as much.Enjoy.
