We pick up where we left off on https://spiritualdope.co/paresh-shah/ - we dig on some integrity and some great ways to keep on going on if you are feeling down. Places to connect with Paresh: https://www.glimpulse.com/ https://www.liftersrising.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/pareshshah1 paresh shah 0:00 Like what are some of you are yes and Brandon you have so many hi I read the deadly Brandon Handley 0:05 bring everything I bring all of everything that I've ever done with me right you get to bring all of all of you know, diversity isn't just in the workplace for the people that you interact with. It's all of your personal experiences. Right? So it's it's, it's you know, I worked with horses I've muck stalls you know I've bartended I've been able to serve in many many different capacities and and I can bring a different aspect and I can reapply anything to this specific situation I can bring my specific experience my specific set of eyes exactly is and how you paresh shah 0:43 show up right how you show up is what makes the difference compared to someone else. Brandon Handley 0:49 And and, and I'm just as excited to get precious input right like I want to I want to see what what is it the press brings out you know, look, I love How I think I can't I cannot tell a lie. I love how I think and I enjoy my own thoughts. But I also enjoy somebody else's and I want to find I want to celebrate the differences right? I don't want to celebrate our same if if we're all the same stop me now. Right But I want one paresh shah 1:20 of us is one of us is redundant. Brandon Handley 1:23 One of you can go home now. Um, so I celebrate I celebrate our differences and what we can create because of our differences. paresh shah 1:32 That's exactly what the centerpiece is about. It's called show up ride your yes and and what we teach is that you take these differences and I'll show you this little picture over here that actually alluded to earlier where remember that movie man? Whoa, I lose you know, so here we go. Okay. Remember that movie man on the wire about the guy who The Wire across the world trade center and he be across the high wire. Have you seen that movie? No, I didn't say so. Oh, it's an absolute 100% hundred 50%. You must watch it. All right. He basically he had to be within the dentist office. He saw a National Geographic cover. And this gets back to what you were talking about in terms of the tension and how do we really attuned the tension you were talking about earlier, right? He was in the dentist offer office and he saw National Geographic that was announcing this idea of the World Trade Center and it had a graphic artist rendition of these new tallest buildings in the world that were going to be built. And he was so fascinated with the whole idea of there being these two, you know, magnificent monster buildings that we're going to be built, right and so while in the dentist office and he used to be a judge. He was a juggler and that kind of thing. He drew a cable across the two. And he said I want to walk a tight wire across the world trade center. And he's practiced. And he put a team together around it that they broke in, which has made it even fun. It was a heist today, they broke into both buildings to get the cable across, right? And he put a team together that helped him take his vision and go Alright, we have to get this cable there. How are we gonna get this, you know, 2000 pound cable to the top floor and it's just amazing. And he actually ended up not just walking. He ended up dancing or laying down On that high wire as people in New York looked up going inside a man and he was dancing on his high wire. And one of the things we teach around this, the honoring differences, as you spoke about is when you tighten the lines, you tighten the tension in differences, right? creative differences, you know, older people and younger people, you know, people with different points of view, then and you would tune it, you can create a resonant frequency that then basically makes that possibility, a total reality. And, you know, he was just dancing up there. He was not afraid, at all. So, show up is that third one, it's essential. serve up is foundational. You have to realize the world has changed. It's foundational rights that from transacting to service. Listen up is essential. You got to listen To your inner self, to your body and to others to go, okay, what's going on here? And how do you speak into the listening of other people so that you have that connection and you get each other, right? And in the middle is show up with your yes and go, you know what, you're different than me. And let's take those differences. And like, let's put like a guitar chord between us, and let's tune those. So we can create this resonance in this harmony that can then propel you to a higher solution that you may not have even seen existed, right? Have you compromised so we don't advocate compromising? Because that's no one satisfied when you compromise or tolerate differences. A lot of you know, teaching is let's tolerate our differences, that that dulls that connection. But if you really take that connection, and the differences and you reach across the gap, and go Okay, let's let's put a little knot here. Let's let's really tune it, and what do we want to collectively create together? And create this thing so you can just like slingshot it up and create that new possibility. That's what he was able to do. That's what we teach in that show up, use your differences not to tolerate each other and have to compromise. But, or even honor honors pretty good compliment. It's a compliment activated. Exactly. Absolutely. Yeah. That's what we call the activate our differences activate diversity. So that's the third one so it serve up Listen up, show up with all of your yes ads I miss and I'm missing on this. But uh, and then the last one is act up. It's about taking action and be purposeful and have you take a big vision of what you want to create and take that next step. And how do you use your what we call this? You fake it till you make it? Okay? You make it and so to be a ke what what do you want to create? And what does that look like? What's the visual? What's it feel like to be there now? Right? What does it sound like? To have that, you know, you know, to be dancing on that wire, you know in the wind in New York, or kinesthetically, what's it feel like to be in that moment in the ever present? Present Moment? And what's that expression and experience be like the VA ke and so, you create that you fake it till you make it and then that feeling that vibration pulses out collectively, when you have all these people eliminating you, you emanate your evany Exactly. And that guitar, that what we say is the the bow that was the hunter bow, you turn it sideways, from serve up, and it becomes an instrument with you pluck it and it becomes music, for sure. And then it becomes a catapult and it becomes like a trampoline, where everyone's holding this trampoline. And you can propel you know change at the community level, at the individual level at the company level. So it serve up Listen up, show up and act up. are the four mind shifts in this lifter leadership model and part of why we are connected why we have connected and you've connected me with amazing people is you are a lifter and lifters resonate with one another. Brandon Handley 8:13 Yeah man No, no, it's awesome right it's awesome that you know, I think what's beautiful is that you know we talk a little bit about the spiritual side and maybe the woowoo right we go we go I but that's a little woowoo this vibrational this this heart centric stuff. paresh shah 8:31 Hold on let me check with the little the little spirit behind me. It's too woowoo Ah, little further. Oh for sure. For sure. Thank you. St Germain. Brandon Handley 8:42 Okay, sure. Right. Like we're nowhere nowhere even really close, I think to as a really Whoo. But the Unknown Speaker 8:49 thing is, is that Brandon Handley 8:51 I think there's the people on the woowoo side, right that that are doing things in the business world or afraid to kind of put their feat in the business world because they can't speak the business language even though that that's what they're doing like wow you know maybe a goal and a plan and a grand vision right in business because it's something that that's desirable right like so if you've got a you know coach or somebody a celestial person human being out there right and it's just like this is you know, all woowoo like, what's your vision and what's it feel like you know, if they can change that language just a little bit to to make themselves a little bit more marketable, right. that's acceptable because you're not you're not losing who you are. Right? You still get to do your yes and paresh shah 9:41 yes, and yes, Brandon and the business desirability that you spoke to earlier, like the Language of Business, right? Um, I've got a guy who works with me, his name is Phil and no Was you the bullshit generator? Yeah, okay so I'm not saying I love the business speak the book like you pointed me to that website the bullshit generator and and part of this gets back to like that honest resume. So like that was kind of what you were reading in our earlier take of this to some extent had some bullshit generator type of stuff for Rashad internationally renowned, blah blah blah his mom is very proud that he got a degree from blah blah blah his his dad you know made great sacrifices so he could then get the award for our oh my god it's so funny. But anyway, there's so you know, the bullshit generated let's magnetize our, you know, scalable, strategic, transparent web readiness and reinvent our disruptive synergistic AI guys kind of done with that you get it gets, Unknown Speaker 10:58 it gets to a certain point where it is too much, but you know, okay, paresh shah 11:03 but you got to speak the language, you got to speak some of the language and you don't throw the baby out with it's not even the baby with the bathwater. It is part of how it works. We have to kind of look at the words and go. Does hunters Make sense? We know what what we what our intention is? Or what we're calling ourselves, right? Or do the words actually shape how we come into how we see the world and that's and you you see how it's a both way circuit? In other words effect and how what we do affects our words. And so Brandon Handley 11:40 we write like how we describe it, I think that you know, it's it's, it's what we want when we show up, what are we showing up as and we make that determination with our words we show up. This is a home job job, it sucks, yada yada yada. I'm sitting around a bunch of people, it's a bunch of postage and being generated. You know, all right. Well, you know, everyone a while, and sometimes you, I'll fake it for myself and I'll be like, we know what I'm really doing today is XYZ. I'm making sure that the when I show up today, I don't know somebody were able to connect today because the job that I have and and do exactly. So, you know, what's beyond like, kind of this what's right in front of here? What you know, we are more than what we see. Right and and i think that's another part of the spirituality bit, right we, we limit ourselves to this, this finite vision that we see and what is right here around us with our five senses, right when we could really be everywhere all the time and beyond. Beyond here, right? We could say, I guess yeah, yeah. What I'm doing today, what you and I are doing today is echoing an eternity. paresh shah 12:43 Yes, actually. Yeah. What there's a he wouldn't call himself a teacher. He calls himself a pointer. And Mooji Have you heard of Luigi? Yes. Unknown Speaker 12:56 I just he's not like he's not my jam. He's not my jam. He's not you paresh shah 12:59 You're a fan. You're a fan you love. I do love them and so I love the way that you say he's not my jam right? So it so we are all notes and his notes strike a chord with me that help me kind of be a help point me to the reminders of the truth that I am and and so you said that my gym but you don't other hand you know and like certain things might speak to you differently around that. So he would call it you know, don't be distracted and he and I love his Caribbean accent it's just so like, you know, don't be distracted by the shape of your body. It's just the shape. It's a shape of your it's an idea. It's a concept and you're more than that. You are You are the witness of that. Do you is that that's your dynamic aspect. That just that just just for now for now just be empty of that you can go back to it anytime you want. Just for now, and it's it's so reassuring around the the modernists Brandon Handley 14:07 I like you as Mooji I like you as Mooji paresh shah 14:17 well, you know what's funny as moochie would probably say I've not met him. He would probably say a messiah and that's what we are we are the I am We are the is we are the isness then so, so why why are we surprised? Let that idea go You have a great imagination. Your imagination is very good but you don't need a man You don't need to create anything you already are. You are you are you are and it's made your Mooji fair just Brandon Handley 14:50 you know it's it's let's I get myself hung up on that from time to time. Sometimes it's it's the deliver Earth You know, that's, that's why so many of us have to kind of go out there and not just uplifters right like lifters for sure, right? recognize their own divinity within and then try and light others up right? And we got to go out we have to teach from our own heart how, you know, how can I help you to get this spiritual dope, right? You get the spiritual high for yourself right? Like how can how can I get you connected to source to whatever it is, and how can I get you to recognize you're so much more than Yes, yes, Unknown Speaker 15:38 yes and and and Brandon Handley 15:39 you know, we all you're going to speak to a different audience and they're going to hear you as Mooji. Right. And, and and paresh shah 15:51 it's just the shape, it's just an idea, Brandon Handley 15:54 but if it's Mooji I'm like, just like Satguru like I'm okay but like I'd rather listen to like all listen You know, it's just like your favorite rock band right like the like the who that wasn't for me right but uh you know I like you know some other bands right like like what like what I mean look I mean for if we're talking classic rock I mean I was you know look Zeppelin Zeppelin is easy right but I was later I was later in my music life she's a Harley remember like a buddy I still remember actually listening to heart and like you know bear that Magic Man album right on like cassette like, oh, like paresh shah 16:29 that's a great right like I mean a great album. I just saw heart before the COVID thing they were playing here yeah at the US at the forum and an NC Wilson are so gifted there boy it's it's they've been doing this for so long. Their songs Magic Man. Yeah, even at Barracuda. Great on these dreams. like that song these streams is. I'm gonna pull it up. on my YouTube, I'm gonna have them play the stream. I don't know if you're allowed legally to play this on your podcast. But listen, Brandon Handley 17:07 listen, if I if, if I'm garnering a la la attraction, Unknown Speaker 17:13 right, then I'm in. Brandon Handley 17:16 Go ahead. paresh shah 17:27 But look at Nancy. Dude, you gotta love the ad. Every moment I'm awake, right? And what were you talking about earlier? Brandon Handley 17:47 of the the awakening, right? The the the, you know the second chance, right the second chance to to really recognize and capture the essence of like, all that you're still capable of right what's the Know what's what's it's, it's realizing how much more life has to give. Right? And that's that's kind of what I found and stepping into that right. You talked earlier about stepping into your greatness, right? When you when you when you realize, you know, you've accomplished something that's impossible for you when you realize that the impossible was actually a really, really fucking low bar. Yeah and you're like wow, that was a really low bar that I've set for myself. Unknown Speaker 18:29 Exactly. Brandon Handley 18:32 And he you know, then then that you're just really opened up to how much more is left and it's always it's funny because you always get the question well, what would uh, what would you tell your 20 year old self right? What advice would you give just the same advice I'm giving to myself now and I hope I take more action on it right like, this is the advice I should be taking action on. Because I have I have more than 20 awesome years to give and it looked earlier. It point earlier is like everything I accomplished up to this point. You know, I've been loath to say it myself, but I agree it's been kind of easy, right? paresh shah 19:09 You're, you're graded you can get, you can get really good. You're a fast learner, Brandon. And you can get really good at most things that you put your mind to, sure or not your mind necessarily like your your your, you know, heart and mind. But there's something about that next level. Hmm. That you, you, you you get, you know, Brandon Handley 19:31 that but that's what that's where that's where, you know, that's where you found yourself, right? That's where you found yourself. When you push your body there, you push your body there, and you're like, there's this next level to me that I didn't even I didn't even I wasn't even paying attention to. Right. I didn't even know that this existed paresh shah 19:46 within me. I did not I did not exactly, exactly. And that's what's cool. And you talk about that second chance. I like that reference. Because actually, every moment we have that second chance, it's actually every moment and instead of waiting This what we talked about, like in that serve up, there's an awareness aspect or Mooji again would say you out the witness, you know, what is the awareness that sees pressures getting upset. The shape of Paresh is getting upset, who is the awareness? And when you have that awareness, then it helps you. Because I have shit days like don't get me wrong people like oh, Brad, you're so positive. I have crap days, shit days. And it's really a question of, you know, you get you give yourself a second life in the moment to go right now I could react right now to what the situation or I could be response abled. And every moment is that moment to go. I could go this way and be a YouTube for I think, honestly, I think there's five or six hours random. That'll happen. I have not done that. It's, it's gross, but you know, it Brandon Handley 20:54 did listen, it's gross being human. Sometimes it's just disgusted. paresh shah 20:59 But there were some there were some funny cat videos that our mortal there. So it's every moment you have that and so there's an attunement. That's really cool. And so, today has been a really great day. It is Friday. I'm speaking with my friend Brandon with Jimmy though, bro. Don't tell me it's not Friday still my god it's Thursday. Somebody told me it was Friday. You accepted that? I agree. Brandon Handley 21:31 Who knows? Like listen some of my my supervisor last week goes man just weeks gone by pretty fast. I was like, not for nothing. But I haven't been able to tell time for like the past three months, man like, it's paresh shah 21:42 my it's my daughter. My a second. Sorry, my my two youngest kids. It's their last day of school. So to me it's a Friday because it's your last day of school for like all this COVID and all that stuff. So I'm gonna give her a call. Let's do let's go get ice cream or some shirts. We'll do after this. So anyway, what I wanted to point out, I want to come back to something that you said earlier and share a story a little bit. You talked about being at your low, earlier, and what did you still recall? Brandon Handley 22:13 I just don't feel like you have to get to a specific low in order to rebound to find your high, right. Like, you hear people say, Oh, you got to you got to hit rock bottom before you can bounce back up again. Well, I think you can just make a determination for yourself that there's something more to this life and what is that and chase that to that? paresh shah 22:32 So I'm not going to comment on that specifically, because I believed that the same and then I kind of got to a low and it took that for me in that case in the traditional kind of Joseph Campbell journey. Yeah. So I can't say because I was like, no, not for me. I got it covered. I can ascend this situation he made Brandon Handley 22:56 me hate maybe my maybe my falls on the way paresh shah 22:59 nobody No, but what and I want to agree with you and I want to agree with you, okay. And I do want to agree with you. So I don't feel it's necessary. And in fact, I had a friend of mine who's very attuned to kind of, you know, galactic happenings. And you know, she could talk about all kinds of realms and things. She shared something really beautiful with me that I did like a real doubletake around when we were talking about the shift that civilization is going that we're in the midst of. A friend described what what we're in the midst of in terms of these lifters being you know, people recognizing the lifter within them is we've gone from Homo erectus to we're evolving as humans, from Homo erectus to Homo sapiens. To Are you ready for this next one? What we're in the midst of Give it to me? Stop mine. My friend gave it to me. homo luminous Hello. Yeah. I love it. Hold on. luminous or another word she used is homo University Talas unity consciousness. So we're becoming like beings, we're becoming lighter. And we're really kind of moving from that materialist, that kind of the 3d realm into this more esoteric higher frequency, higher dimensional kind of perspective on, uh, you know, what we experience. And so yesterday I was walking my dog. And this gets back to like hitting low and I wanted to just kind of explore it with you in a certain sanctity, so I was walking my dog and I was feeling I was really in the zone, as we talked about, like, I just feel like things are working and I'm able to, I feel good, I feel good about what's happening, despite the ups and downs, etc. And I was listening to kind of inner guidance with Julia Cameron would guide you to kind of listen to that inner voice and I'm always down walking by Dog and there are a lot of surfers out because people things are opening up here. And I saw some familiar friends who were going surfing. And what came to me was, I wonder if my other friend who I won't mention happens to be here because we tend to collide in those accidental, you know, like there's, we just happen to like collide into each other when we're not expected to in the normal kind of way. And so I called him and he's a really tough dude like he's way tougher than you know. Me super tough. He's big guy. very knowledgeable, really introspective. Just just a real kind of salt of the earth guy who grew up here. I just love him. So like, dude, how's it going? I'm having a great day. I'm here with my dog and he would always feed my dog little doggy biscuits you would get at Costco so my dog loves loves this guy. He's like, Unknown Speaker 26:03 And, paresh shah 26:06 and what he shared with me was really an interesting perspective. Because he was actually contemplating suicide. Mm hmm. And I'm like, Oh, come on, dude. And then I realized he was actually like, in that space. Unknown Speaker 26:30 And paresh shah 26:33 he's a super tough guy, and he's super self aware. And what he said was, was moved to me. He said, when you're at your all time low, like a rock bottom type of low, you don't even have enough energy, to motivate yourself to do something about it. And it's all about You're way up in certain ways of see things that you might do something like that. And I was like, why? And it struck me as coming from a place of pain and knowing and wisdom. And it was very, like, wow, I haven't thought of it that way and his perspective for what it's worth. Unknown Speaker 27:34 Because paresh shah 27:38 he was in a really strange place and I wasn't expecting that. And his perspective was interesting, and it was hopeful to me, which was he goes, so what I'm doing is I postponed it three days at a time. What would I do between now with that because he's kind of He's kind of planned it, which is a decent way to describe what he's planned. And so, and he goes, Well, what can I do in the next three days, that might make a difference? And then as a way of helping himself trying to move out of this feeling, which is so present to him, and I'm doing my best like Left, left left, and you know, come on. And there's a lot of pain in the world. So I I bring that up, too. He's one of the most positive people I know. Right? Yeah, cheer and you know, even when it comes with the job where my dog's tail starts wagging when she sees him, not just because of just Costco doggy treats that he always has in his his car. And so it's really getting back to that choice, right second life that you talked about earlier in each moment. Which way, you know, can we encourage ourselves to go and let's use our heart, let's use our friends, let's use our community to encourage going, you know, in one direction versus the other in every moment so we can have that second life and that next moment I'll be going to go light or dark or we're going to go, you know, anger, forgiveness, or we can go you know, self shame, versus, you know, kind of honoring. You know, how magnificent we are. And these are things that we forget very easy to me. Mindfulness is really, I don't like the word mindfulness for what we speak about in terms of if you call it spiritual Joe, it is really not about your mind being full. It's really about an emptiness of sorts of kind of being in the stillness of you're listening Brandon Handley 29:51 to Lopa, I think Toluca that says, you know, you know, have a mind that's open to everything and attached to nothing. paresh shah 29:59 Oh, I love That I will find this open to everything in a test nothing. Yes, I love that. And it's kind of, to me it's like, it's not mindful that it's remindful this we have to remind ourselves remind ourselves you know that there is that the second chance or that Second Life is an adventure that you may not know what your resume is gonna look like, right? Take it that adventure in the choice of this moment to go this way versus that right because lifters are not it's not that you are or are not a lifter because that would cause division and separation from the unity that we really are in how do you show up on purpose in the moment, right, you show up with that lifter attitude to lift in that moment, even for yourself Unknown Speaker 30:46 or alone, even for even for your friend right? Like you're you're you're Brandon Handley 30:51 lifting and positivity isn't as necessary as as you being there for him. Right? And that's how you lifted him by just being there for him. paresh shah 31:01 Exactly. And my tendency would be to give advice. And I really resisted that. Because I really was in the space of like listening to myself, but you know, I feel like I want to call this person and I was inspired to kind of, oh, that was like an inner listening. Right? And hey, let me call him and see maybe he's, you know, gonna tap me on the shoulder and go telepathy. I was right behind you all the time. Or, you know, because that's the type of connection we often have. Right? And, uh, and it was really and here's the beauty of it. It was healing for me too. Brandon Handley 31:38 Like, it was like he was looking for things to live for right every every third day like what are some things to live for? And so even even while he was kind of down and out, he was like, this is this is this is what I'm alive for. This is what I'm living for tomorrow. I'm gonna do this or, you know, these are reasons to live, you know? Yeah. Is I love that though. I do. I mean, paresh shah 31:57 isn't that beautiful? It is. It is If someone's ever like, if anyone knows anyone who is in that space, that type of desperation and what he shared with me, which I feel is safe to share, because I'm not sure who it is, is there was a pervasive shame that was a that was the emotion he was experiencing. And as you and I have talked about the Harkin scale of consciousness, which is, you know, the different emotions that humans go through from low frequency to higher frequency, shame is the lowest frequency a human can have. It's like a 20 on an exponential scale. Then it moves up to like, you know, grief, anger, pride, accepted joy, unconditional love, peace. And he was so low on that scale. And it was a beautiful mechanism that he had his self awareness. His Higher Self is all the more go to dip the novel, you know, his, you know, here's your p&l x, right? Push it off three days, push it off three days and like probably like a sobriety perspective. You know, I'm not gonna have that today, one day at a time. And so I would recommend that recommend I implore anyone, because that was genius to be I've not heard that as a strategy to then hopefully you can pop out of that low vibe, and then get that perspective to go, okay, you know, that was me at a really low frequency permissioned way, it's part of the experience. I'm not gonna feel bad about that. And now I'm in a different place and a different perspective from which I can make that choice in a different different way. So it's a great strategy. I feel I'm not an expert in these matters, but I felt that it provided me some some tool he was a tool that I certainly feel is a great thing about a toolkit if you're feeling down about something before you react and make kiddie choices you know, give yourself three days to Brandon Handley 34:08 just keep pushing it off. I love it. I love it. Well, brother Hey, look at this. It's always awesome. I feel like you know you and I could obviously we could we could probably talk for a lifetime. Unfortunately, I don't know how many people are gonna want to listen to us talk for a lifetime Unknown Speaker 34:25 let's um, hit me with hit me with Brandon Handley 34:31 what's like the, you know, you talk about the Four Agreements what's like the most radical you know, spiritual book that's like hits you in between the eyes. Unknown Speaker 34:47 Radical Brandon Handley 34:52 doesn't have to be a spiritual book like what's the one that hits in between the eyes because goodness gracious like I've been reading like business books that are like making me feel spiritual out. Right. paresh shah 35:01 It's really like it comes from everywhere. The I was reading Psalm 23 in the Bible the other day, and it was this, like, you know, it's you between the eyes. You know, we mentioned earlier the Four Agreements, there's such a simplicity to it around what are we agreeing with? What voices are we agreeing with? Which voices are we not agreeing with? What situations are we agreeing with or not? And I think that integrity piece, and that was the one that you remember that stands out to me as well branded as, like a super tool. You know, don't take things personally, I find that the most difficult one, especially in a family situation where you know that so I find that most difficult, you know, do your best. I think we I do my best and you know, we're very hard on ourselves. And that's It's important to kind of remember those victories of Hey, we got this done this week and Today's been an epic nod Friday, it feels like Friday because we got so many things done. Right. That integrity piece, I think is the most powerful thing if I tell I tell folks that in the field of kind of, you know, metaphysics or eudaimonia human flourishing which is what really what it's about it's you die you die, Moti Alec, how do we flourish? How do we saturate ourselves with living our to our fullest and the integrity piece is very, very powerful. And I tell some of the folks that I mentor that I wish someone had taught me about the integrity of word way earlier in my life and the schema that works For me around that really helped me understand how integrity of word could co create. You want to take a minute kind of take a quick journey around a way of seeing integrity that blew my mind when when? Yeah. Okay, all mines. Let's do it. Okay, so I wish someone had taught me this when I was, you know talking to your 20 year old self for 22 years. So I wish someone had said, Hey Pradesh, this is how it works. save yourself a lot of gray hair and occurring of pain and suffering as you learn. There are three types of integrity draw here on the board just so you can visually follow along. And I get this until I got it. And then when I got it, I got it. And now it's question of practicing and remember The first type of integrity is what I teach to my coaching or my students, it kind of kind of came together is there's moral integrity, which is, you know, don't be a bad boy don't steal because if you steal from someone, they're gonna steal from you and pretty soon all hell breaks loose and it's, it's, you know, be in the field of morality, don't be a bad person or a bad boy. So that's moral integrity. And that's often what we are really habituated and trained to operate in by our parents, like don't do that, you know, that's not good. And so then shame often comes from that realm, but that's a different conversation. So that's, you know, good bad moral integrity. The second type of integrity is integrity of relationships. Which is, you know, honoring someone respecting someone, etc. There's a third one, which is the integrity of word, which is what you spoke to your word, right? And in the realm of spiritual dope, if you'll allow me to use that word, this third one is the dope. This third one is the dope, these two are important. And the way I see things, they don't really apply as much, unless it's like in the karmic realm and things like that, as this integrity of words. So let me give you an example that will illustrate for me what kind of clicked for me. And I was like, wow, I wish I had known that way of seeing things before. So let's say that you and I have a plan to be on the podcast at four o'clock today on Thursday on Friday. And so I was like, yeah, I'll be there. So I think told you I will be there at four o'clock. And let's say that I arrived at 4:02am I violated moral integrity. Have I been a bad boy in that realm? No, no. Okay. Have I violated a relationship integrity like keeping you waiting for two hours at a restaurant or something like that? Right? So in those two realms of there hasn't been any kind of, you know, deep violation of integrity in the way that I was, like, raised to kind of think about integrity and you know, being good and respecting etc. And if I said I'll be here at seven o'clock, and I arrive at seven o to have I been in integrity with my word, no man, you're slightly you're slightly off the mark. off the mark, very great observation and you know the word sin means off the mark. Right? It's just off the mark from archery. And so the moral stuff makes us feel you're a sinner. You're a bad boy. I know church lady, Dana Carvey, you know, would be prudent at this moment to be like, Mr. Shah, we're gonna tell your mother Oh, buddy, what did you do? Again? You can jump on with the church. Maybe? No, it's Dana Carvey doing church lady. Wow. So, that day I had a David Dana Carvey medium came through. So, what's cool is this word is all domain in and of itself. So, what I've learned and learned and I apply as much as I can, when I remind myself in my mindfulness is when the universe the the the substance that we are swimming in like fissure in water, source Spirit God as we Speak our word. If it goes, Hey, Brandon, I will send you a copy of my PowerPoint tonight. And I do it. I'll be there at four o'clock. I'll do it. I you know, tell my daughter I'm going to let's go to Baskin Robbins and celebrate. you're graduating from seventh grade. Tonight. Oh, nice. Yay. Pink bubblegum is the best flavor with those little Chiclets of bubblegum a veal always guys, always. So what happens is the universe gets a reliable signal to go press said he was gonna send Brandon the PowerPoint tonight. Did he do it? Yes or no. And it's not a judging universe. It's just a calculator. It's just an accountant. And it goes presh said it. You do it? Yep. Did he show up at four o'clock? Because that 402 is not his word. 359 or Yes, he did. It. So he said it, it happened. He said it happened, did he take his daughter for Baskin Robbins. I give you my word after this call, I'm going to take my daughter to Baskin Robbins. So yes. And so what I was taught, which I think is the most powerful thing, and it relates to the book, The Four Agreements is, when you create a pattern of reliability with the universe to say, I spoke it, it happened, I spoke it, it happened, I spoke it it happened, versus I get it to you tomorrow. Or you know what, I'm going to do that p90x tomorrow for sure. And you don't do it. What happens is you get checks that x is in a mishmash, so the signal isn't strong to go, Well, what what do we do with this, that the universe is sort of the computer kind of responding? And we and our word is our mouse and our keyboard? It's like, Well, I know like what the deal is, however, if you start, like, slicing reality in and interacting With it to go. I said this, it happened. I said this, it happened. I said this, it happened. Then when you have integrity of word, you can speak it and go. I know my friend is like, hey, meet me at the restaurant, there's gonna be horrible parking and got to go around the blog. I'm like, No, I don't agree with that. There's going to be a parking space right in front of the restaurant that's going to open up and the universe goes, he says it it happens. He says it it happens. He says it happens. And you demonstrate that then it can work backwards, which is you say it and the universe goes. It's a pattern. You say it happens. And that is this realm of integrity of word. It's your magic wand is your word. Your word is your Why have you read that book? I haven't. Mind blowing, right? Brandon Handley 44:51 Yeah, that's awesome. I love it. I love it. Right. paresh shah 44:53 So that to me is the ultimate like it's one of the greatest breakthroughs of thinking to go Wow. And sometimes, like, if I have a meeting at, you know, three o'clock, you'll see me running down the street or up the stairs, right? Because, like, I want to be an integrity on my word. And there's a way to reconcile it if you get there later, whatever, but it's really, because then you you're putting that impression into the universe. So, you know, I said it, it happened, I said it, it happened. And then that becomes a reliable pattern for the universe to respond. And it has nothing to do with moral integrity or relationship integrity, necessarily. And that I think is is so profound. I wish someone had taught me that, uh, you know, 20 years ago, or even sooner, and I wish every young person listening to this can just get that and go, you know, you're just creating a pattern by being in integrity with your your, your, your spoken word of your written word. Brandon Handley 45:55 Now, I love it. I love it. definitely definitely powerful. I love I love how you got there, right? And you're right like your word is your one right? So dude, thanks for sharing that one right like who nobody saw that comment. Nobody saw that one comments so press saw everybody thank you so much man for taking the time today for for reconnecting Yeah. Where Where am I?

Paresh Shah | Lifter | Homo Luminous Part 1 of 2

Spiritual Dope

Paresh Shah is a human being - 100% genuine article. Please read the transcript for his introduction. We talk about what it is to be a Lifter, about manifesting, about being a homo luminous, transcending the mundane and living a life that may have at one moment seemed impossible... Places to connect with Paresh: https://www.glimpulse.com/ https://www.liftersrising.com/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/pareshshah1 paresh shah 0:00 Okay, so I would love to give the honest resume instead of like the the accolades that my mom and dad, we're very proud but issues first is engineering class. I want to be like that to me. We're starting to get boring even for me. Awesome. And so let's revisit that and kind of come on air. Here we go. Real and just go. I love it. I love it. Man. So 54321 Hey there podcast. This is Brandon Handley on with Paresh Shah. We're slinging some spiritual dope today and press. I love press for this because I started to read his, you know, online resume bio, which reads awesome, like in any corridor, right? But he's like, Hey, we're doing spiritual dopes a we're leading with spirituality. We are leading with authenticity. I want to share my real resume my life resume, so fresh eyes. Brandon Handley 0:59 I don't have that in front of me. I'd love to hear it though. paresh shah 1:04 Thanks, Brandon. Thanks for having me on. I love this spiritual dope concept, it's more than a concept you're actually creating the energy around conversation through conversations that uplift you know, everyone who's listening here and beyond because you don't even need to be a listener because it's a buy. It's a buy. It's it's the, the the vibe of what you're creating. So I must say you and yeah, it was kind of weird. Because part of you know, you talked about the journeys that you have been on Brandon and we've talked earlier about your your journey and the various journeys that we go on. And they're a dear friend and you speak to me in a way that where you get me and we get each other and we we have telepathy in many ways, because we're thinking the same thing at the same time. And there's even evidence of it where we have written something down and say, Hey, you know what, you just said that I work so hard to that won't even say I worked hard. Frankly, it came easy for me for most things to get that laundry list of whatever you would call his accomplishments. On that bio, I was like, and as you were reading it, this I was going oh my god, this is so boring. Can we like move on? And it was it's so funny because I was like, I work so hard. My parents are proud. I actually have didn't work hard in certain ways. Things just kind of snowball. Often, you know, it's kind of like, you know, when the kid like, you're good at stuff, and then people like, throw more stuff at you. And I was like, This is so boring. And this isn't what this is about. And it felt kind of gross with my friends. So I wanted to thank you for kind of rewinding, rewinding, and that's not what it's about, primarily, and I think this whole sphere we're in right now, as a world, one of the beauties that's come out amidst the struggles and the suffering and you know, what's really, you know, happening is it's forced us, some of us to kind of go inside and go, what really matters here? What really matters here? And how do I want to show up, which is our third lifter mind shift that you're familiar with. In the lifter leadership world we have serve up, listen up, show up with all of your yes and qualities that make you unique, and then act up. And I was talking with my brother yesterday, and I was like, why don't we just have like an honest resume? And so I went out and I bought on his resume.com because the best way to remember an idea is spend 999 on GoDaddy and park the domain so you never forget the idea and feel you didn't do anything about it. So honest resume. And so I started thinking and we were jamming on it. You know what would our honest resume be? And my brother Brandon Handley 4:05 I really want to interject right like cuz teacher telepathy right earlier today I was listening to you know one of your other podcasts and you were talking about the time that you took off for a year to go travel with your wife and hike and do all the things you like houses one year absence can look on my resume and I wrote down is like, what happens if you take that thought away? You know, take that would build your life resume right like and you know, what does it look like to say? It doesn't say there's nothing wrong like it's great go create a business, get people jobs, get them into a certain space and and and all these things. But what happens if your goal is to live an amazing life period? And you know, there's not a fear of, well shit, I can't I can't take a year off and go explore life and what am I What am I paresh shah 4:58 going to say about me? Myself, even my mind, right? We're like, what are you going to do about the gap in your resume? I'm going to backpacking for one year and and there was truly that there was an aspect of that a little bit, but it was very much drowned out or over or I wouldn't say overshadowed over lit by the possibility of how cool would it be to go backpacking for a year, we went to India and Nepal, we hiked the end of foreigners, my wife and I, she had just finished her PhD and so it was a great, like, you know, let's just kind of see what's going on. And I there was a little bit of that. What am I gonna have to say for myself? Because you don't just like take off. Um, and, um, it was kind of funny because when I came back and was in the job market, I got a call from GE, from a headhunter and they had this cup The management program that you get to be, like, part of like, they're like they're your your starting leaders if you get to be part of this program, and they put you in different business units, so you can really kind of learn the ropes. And you know, kind of it's like the leadership group. So I got a had a headhunter call me about that. And I was like, Yeah, see, I'm marketable. This is great. I'm getting ahead under call from GE, and one of my teachers, Professor, Joe Bauer, who's still a great professor at Harvard Business School, we had this class called management is about management leadership, and he had a total crush on jack welch. Like every case, we had, like 50 I don't know it was a semester course. And it was like a study how great jack welch is and how GE because the GE thing was like the gold standard of how do you you know, run a great enterprise based on how things were defined then. And so I had this conversation with the with the the client, the headhunters, client G, And I was excited go, I nailed it. Right. And they're like, when you told them that you went backpacking for a year, they're like, we don't want somebody who's gonna just like take off and do something like that. That's not our way. And I was devastated. I was devastated. But then later on, I was liberated to go. Yeah, you know what, that's not really my path. And so I've, you know, been an entrepreneur since then. So, yeah, the journey takes you to amazing places where new frontiers get open. And on that trip, one of the pivotal things we did was, we took Julia Cameron's course called the artists way. It's a it's a book a workbook that you do. It's a self guided workbook, and it's called the artists way. And I had felt that I had gotten to left brain from my engineering and from my business work, and then I was in consulting as great, great left brain stuff like super cool projects. We were on And, you know, the musician from high school and other things we used to play with, sort of didn't get enough voice. And so the artists way was a way of kind of recapping into the creative side. And so we started doing this, this course called the artists way by Julia Cameron. And I recommend it to anybody, anybody. And through the process that Julia took us through in this workbook. We started seeing the world in a whole different way and started experiencing some of the first miracles non obvious you know, coincidences, telepathy, and all kinds of extraordinary ways of experiencing the world. And she really opened opened my aperture around. You know how to see the miraculous, even in in in the darkness, and am I 100%? there all the time? No. But I didn't even realize that was like a doorway. Before. You know, this part of the journey. Brandon Handley 9:09 I love it. I mean, because you were you were on you were on the managerial track you were you were on the fast track you were, you were bits, ones and ones and zeros, right? And you got to be productive, get in line and stay in line. And if you get out of line for a year, you can't come back. paresh shah 9:25 Okay. It was a fear of that. There was there was a fear of that. There really was, Brandon Handley 9:28 I wanna, you know, I love that you're bringing that up artists way. I'm gonna share this with you. I'm actually doing what is the right brain artists or whatever, right? I'm teaching myself and you can't really see. Well that can paresh shah 9:40 see that's beautiful. Brandon Handley 9:42 Right. But I mean, that's, that's, you know, they're teaching you how to draw like, I'm doing that right now. I'm trying to engage my right brain, right, like and going through that process. paresh shah 9:51 It's so great. And you know what, in many ways, this whole right, not the right brain left brain characterization is it over simplification doesn't really work that way. But we kind of we kind of use that as a vernacular. It's really tapping into this, that creative, that intuitive and bringing it all together. My wife, Eliza, she studied with a Nobel Prize winning biologist Walter Gilbert. He won the Nobel Prize for biology. And he was off the chart genius like, you know, DNA sequencing. And I think he was in the company of the one who did the pea pod experiment in biology. Right, right. Yeah, that guy? Yeah. Brandon Handley 10:40 Sorry. Like, I forget that. What's the guy's name? Michael Mendel paresh shah 10:42 was it? Yeah, Joseph Mendel. So he was kind of in that league of like, super extraordinary minds. Off The Charts genius. Walter Gilbert and he, like he, when he was a lecture, like listening to some other Speaker a professor at Harvard, my wife pointed out that he'd have his little sketchbook and he would be sketching the person or the scene or the hand upside down. And, and I think he may have now I may be extended, but he may have even been using his opposite hand. And in doing so, it's like, wait, why would you sketch someone upside down because that whole other perspective would lead to a very different outcome. And that was, you know, a kind of a glimpse of his genius of how he saw things very differently. And cultivated both aspects of his his genius. Then he became an artist and a photographer, and he sells scarves with his art on it. And so he's, he's been this polymath anyways. Yeah, Brandon Handley 11:54 I love it. I think that um, you know, that talks to, I'm gonna I'm gonna weave in some real quick Guys if you're joining in oppression I have had conversations before which you may or may not be picking up on and and the thing is we're talking about spiritual dope and spiritual dope is is got its target line set up on you know we're looking at what does it look like to lead with spirituality What does it look like to be a spiritual person but integrate or you know Professor heard you talked about it earlier and some of some things I was listening to it's like interweave right be all of who you are not and don't separate your spiritual self from your business self from this you know this other software you know be one self right but also recognize right the Divinity within is precious you know, you know gosh you had an expression of divinity right surfaces you had a great line on the Nobel Peace Peace. Peace one right we're like, you know, let that divinity come out right. And, and when you do, I think you you You said you were having one of those buzz kind of days right? Give me what I would say today you've had a hit of spiritual dope right like you've hit a spiritual high Tell us about that. But again guys, we're trying to align like people who have had success by leading or integrating their spirituality into their their overall lives and how you can do that for yourself and if you've been thinking that it can't be done or if you've been concerned about what that might look like for you then come take a look at what's happening here and spiritual though connect with a Paresh connect with anybody else connect with me. The people that bring it on? Yeah, is like let's, let's, let's help you shine your light, right. paresh shah 13:42 Ha, it's, um, we had we had a team call today with our with some of our teams and we have hired 13 summer interns because I wanted to have as many of these young people because a lot of the internships have been canceled and it's a total bummer. One of the ones that we just hired yesterday, he moved to San Francisco. And he was on his resume. He was one of 12 out of something like 4000 applicants to get like that internship. It reminds me of like that, you know that that movie, where the where, who is it goes to Google to be the interns. Not Tom Hanks. The guy from Night at the Museum anyway, the two older, older, older guys trying to come to me. So anyway, so and then he moved to San Francisco to start this job, and it just got canceled last week. And we're like, oh, and you can feel it. These young folks are just like, dang. And so part of what we're doing is trying to create as many opportunities for internship where people can have meaningful work, you know, make a contribution collaborate. And so we have actually more than a handful now, of interns and We had a team call today where people were just at the stage now where we're giving each of these interns like, this is your project bread. And now, and this is your project, and we're giving them like, real projects that are a bit bold for interns, and they are so amazing. And we're getting so many things done that, you know, you talk about the day I've had, it's Friday afternoon, and I was on with my team and we were just like celebrating the victories and it feels good to win we celebrate victories. It helps us not forget, we actually got a lot of things quote done, because sometimes you can get a lot of things done and then the next day go, Oh, I haven't done crap. What a loser I am. You ever have that feeling? Oh, yeah, yeah. And so we were like, wow, we just and these young folks are taking on their like, My responsibility is I'm creating it's it's so energizing because as it pertains to spiritual dope, these young kids, they get it. They get it disproportionately. And we talk about being a lifter we talk about, you know, being open hearted and serving others and really seeing a vision of what you want to create that's good for the world, and how you can attract that in even when you're feeling in a crappy mood, or in a low period, which, you know, while today, it's been one of those great days. It's quite the roller coaster for all of us. And there's all kinds of things happening. And there's like this flow that's going between the turbulence of people having like realizations about this is what I really love doing and I'm really a moved by it like your friend the medium. And these young folks. I call them kids but they're they they're getting this that we can't keep up with them. They go Yeah, and when you talk about applying your yes and qualities, and really creating What you want, the way we see it is you could really, you know, you know, change the world and manifest this whole new way of being and, and they're pushing the thinking and they're really embracing it. They're just soaking it up. And that to me is is one of the greatest things of today because we haven't talked to them about two weeks. And I used to have weekly meetings and then we didn't have to, we had two weeks and I, I told the team, I need a pep talk just to be in their energy, right? This gets things going it gets that flywheel going, when you move to a higher frequency of joy and celebration and gratitude. It's from there that you can you know, get that Vantage on what you want to create, you know for for the world or it or in service and it helps you pop out of what gets you angry. And I was just telling my my sister Yes, yesterday that I had a day where I was on Facebook at the end of the day. I looked at myself and I tell him my kids, like, you know what I did? all day. I pretty much was on Facebook most of this day. What have I done and it was, I was like on Facebook for like five or six hours, and I was totally like, I couldn't even get out of the sofa. And I was like, there's got to be something good. Oh, that's good. But they give me more, give me more. And I was so I got my vibration was like, Whoa, hmm. And I got into the car and my 77 Nova, and, you know, took off listening to some music very loudly and called a friend, like you were saying earlier today, like you feel the impulse to call someone and within within three or four minutes, we were back to you know, feeling good about the world and what's happening. You can't feel good about everything that's happening, but you can hold a higher vibration that supports everybody. You know, Brandon Handley 18:52 I say I think they I mean, you know, in terms of like the higher vibration and have have an elevated conversation is really kind of what we're seeking. Like that, well, you're having we're looking for an elevated conversation. It's not that these things aren't important. It's not that they aren't happening. It's not that you need to ignore them. But how can you elevate the conversation, bring it somewhere else and take it somewhere else entirely. And that's the higher vibration that you're talking about. Right? You You also, you'd mentioned like, you know, you don't want to come from a scarcity power driven mentality, right modality. If you come from there, if you're coming from a place of restriction, or fear of losing your place in line, right? That's good things don't come out of bad places. paresh shah 19:40 Ultimately, they do when you look back at them sometimes I guess, but it doesn't seem apparent. Right. Right. Well tie Right. Yeah. Brandon Handley 19:46 And I'll make it again, like, you know, coming from places of fear coming from places of scarcity, things can come out of there, like I was talking with somebody else, and they were saying, you know, ultimately, you need to hit rock bottom before you can, you know, bounce back up again and that has not you know i don't care whose story is what story that has not been my story it's very frustrating in to like for me to hear that line all the time because you can find yourself just wanting a different life right just realizing I think that you did with your pX 90 self right and with with with Unknown Speaker 20:22 Tony Horton, Tony Horton but we love you Brandon Handley 20:25 so, so fresh tell the story about what happened. You know so you're you're in you're in. You're in Paris and you're you're you know, paresh shah 20:34 let's call it being in a flat spin like goose goose and Tom Cruise. We're in Top Gun where you're just like something's not working. Brandon Handley 20:45 Yeah, I can take that. Yeah, yeah, paresh shah 20:48 yeah, that's kind of but not in the family side. family has always been wonderful supportive. Just kind of more in you know, kind of whatever you'd call it. I wouldn't call it a midlife crisis unless I was in that mood it was it was a blender, a blender, but we don't need to get into it. Part of the honest resume, by the way as a parent identical is, um, I prefer not to repeat the stories. And it would be cool if you could just like write down, by the way and here's my journey. I thought I was all this. I thought it was all that I was really good at this and then this happened. And I realized I wasn't this I realized this and that's my story once and for all. So that we don't live in our stories. Anyway, this is apparently identical. So p90x came in so I did not. I wasn't, I didn't feel attuned to direction let's just say around what is the next step I thought that my thinking logical mind was the primary mechanism or dashboard in which to discern what the next action would be, etc and The The funny thing is you might call it well you know it's Spirit spoke to me mediums books to be God spoke to me or somehow you listen to your true nature your higher self in yoga we call it own animal guru dev Namo your you call on your highest self to help you do your best. I didn't really talk any of this I thought it was a bunch of hogwash, but I'm speaking to right now. Okay in the pendulum bride, and I got a message because I was in the flat spin and I'm like, Unknown Speaker 22:34 you know, paresh shah 22:37 what are they gonna do? What are they gonna do? And then the message was you got to do something impossible press to get out of this situation. And I'm like, impossible. Who am I talking to? I don't really believe in anything up there. Impossible, and I really wasn't. You know, Constantly attuned to kind of listening to that spirit source. And I was like, Okay, sounds like I need to do something impossible. What is it? Do I need to like climb Mount Everest Do I need to like what's impossible? And it came from so many places it was just like, like five or six conversations in a row around the inquiry of what's impossible What do I need to do to get out of this spot spin? And I thought it would be like this. You know, big you know, go meditate for 500 days you know in it. I really need a K for this. Give me a cave give me a cave. Yeah, but make sure it is great espresso in the cave. You know, that's the the spiritual dope. So what came before I really would even speak of things coming in the in the listening was You want to get out of this situation per rash? Like, yeah, it really doesn't feel good and it sucks. And I feel kind of low right now. And it doesn't make me a great dad either sometimes. And the answer was great. I got it for you. I'm like, Great. I'll do it. I climb Kilimanjaro with my buddy Dave. I can do it. p90x. I'm like, What? You need to do p90x. I'm like you mean the. I'm Tony Horton, you up 90 days get the best shape of your life. And, and it was a joke. It was kind of like what? Right and I realized later that I had never pushed myself that hard. without someone kicking my butt to do it, ever actually in anything because, like academics and things came naturally I played tennis. Since Swimming, but it wasn't really like, you got to show up yourself to do something really demanding where it hurts. And you got to get that extra pull up up. And so I started doing it, which was weird that I followed through on it, but it was kind of like the let's call it a voice but it wasn't a voice. It was a knowing, um was Yeah, like to you that's kind of impossible to be like ripped and, you know, and be that, like so fierce, right I had I had not been fierce. Physically, I'd never played like football or anything. And so I started doing it and my little living room in a village in France where the kids went to school and we'd occasionally go to a dance garden, and I got into my body in a way I'd never seen gotten into my body and the message I got was like, Yeah, you're going to do this. And if you don't, this time, then shut the Bleep up about ever getting in shape. And if you end up being on the sidelines, you know, when your grandkids are playing football, just remember this and not in a loving way not in a in a you know, shame bill way or anything like that. Just like a dude, this is your moment, like step up is it and so I did it in not 90 days, it took me longer. But I really did it. Like I'd come home at one in the morning from work. And I'd put that disc in and I had never really put the disc in like that before in my life, put that disc in and go I'm gonna do this. And I actually did complete it. I felt really good about myself and showing up my kids like wow, Dad's going crazy. Doing this stuff. And then and then Tony Horton and his whole gang of people all become like our friends in our house and you know, my kids come home to dad you hanging out with friends. Wherever today because Dre has like Tony sidekick. And then there's Greg over here. And so they became personalities in the house. And I found the physicality and the pushing myself. And the message was, you know, and I was like, I did it, I did the impossible. I did something I didn't feel I could do. And then the learning from that, or the lesson was, once you do one thing, it's impossible. Nothing's impossible. And so my flat spin started coming out. And so I kind of came out of my flat spin. And I was like, wow, okay, this feels good. I'm starting to really get some traction around other aspects of my business in my life and what I wanted to create, and then and I felt really good. Like I did the impossible, Tony, exit up. And what happened was then my wife decided to do it because she had seen, you know, Brandon Handley 27:51 the results or whatever we call it. Unknown Speaker 27:54 And don't be shy. Unknown Speaker 27:56 That's all right. Yeah, it worked for you. I'm not so rip, paresh shah 27:58 as but anyway. So she's like, I'm gonna do this. And so she started doing it and then guess who showed up in the spiritual domain? In my little on the shoulder here going, Hey, Paresh Guess who showed up? Brandon Handley 28:14 Under the answer, so I don't want to give it away. paresh shah 28:17 Doubting Thomas. Doubting Thomas was like a press. Yeah. What if it was a fluke that you did that impossible thing? I'm like, No man, I sweat. I I went from rubber bands. To massive man. Unknown Speaker 28:38 Massive man, you know me. paresh shah 28:42 Oh, man. Unknown Speaker 28:45 All the time. paresh shah 28:49 I like the mini massive. I get mad. I went, I went for a minivan. So I went and I was like, No, no, I'm not going to accept that. I I've read the Four Agreements I've gotten. So I got into all the spirituality, and I found it like this amazing new world. And I was like, No, I'm not agreeing with that. It's what you agreed to is what you experience is what you create. It's what you out project. Like, I'm not gonna agree to that. It's like, dude, dude, it was a fluke. It was a fluke. I'm like, No, so I started going online. And looking up. Can you do like, what if you do p90x multiple times, and there's some guys who've done it like five times, they're really freaky. Unknown Speaker 29:39 There's so Brandon Handley 29:41 many pack. paresh shah 29:43 So I said, you know, I'm gonna do it again. I'm gonna do this again. Shut up, shut up. And so I started doing it again. And again. I wasn't so strong. Um, I've gotten I'm pretty much like a weakling. But my barbells and dumbbells were getting more heavy. And I my wrists, I didn't like exercise my wrists and my wrists got injured. doing that, and I finally got it into my physicality. And I'm starting to really, you know, feel like what it feels like to push hard. Push yourself beyond, and I said, you know, this physicality of like, really being in the moment of something is really a powerful experience. And, and I'm feeling really powerful. I'm getting my fearlessness back, let's go do something else and and the ideas are flowing. And so then I said, Well, let me do some yoga or something. So I can, you know, rest my wrist and just do some other and meditation. Thus, I got into the yoga and meditation, which is, you know, so part of, Brandon Handley 30:53 you know, who you are and what you do, right. Right. I love Now, here's the here's my big Take away from that story, right is is the the whole idea. And the reason I asked you to share is because once you do the impossible once, right, Unknown Speaker 31:09 and then you begin to see that other things Brandon Handley 31:12 are fine. What else have I been holding yourself back for you today? paresh shah 31:15 Exactly. Right, exactly. Brandon Handley 31:18 Right. And it's so funny because the way you tell your story about the tailspin, you know, I totally relate right and and, you know, you could you know, plenty and I think you and I had this conversation, plenty people could call it a midlife crisis. I like the idea of awakening, but a second chance at life. I'd like you like you would mention there's like, paresh shah 31:38 a second chance at life. That's pretty good, right? Because even awakening is kind of like, well, what's that really mean? I mean, he says, it's kind of a chance, a second chance of living. Yeah, like that. Brandon Handley 31:48 But the thing is, is that, um, you, you made a conscious real superconscious decision and recognize that there were two paths you could go down right? You I could I could get on a path where I sit down on my ass and watch my grandkids play and it's great. But if I have the opportunity to participate, I choose that opportunity. So I really view that the whole you know, second second chance, right? you get you get presented, right, you get pretty bad. It's a presentation. It's a present paresh shah 32:24 to like that. Yeah, it's, Brandon Handley 32:26 it's a gift it is it's a gift. Because because here you go. And it says, All right. You have, you know, you're smart enough, you know, the outcomes if you continue this way for the rest of your life. Make a choice, right. And once you make that choice, it's put up or shut up. paresh shah 32:46 Right, in every in every moment of your life Brandon Handley 32:48 for the rest of your life, actually, because paresh shah 32:50 there's a lot you caught you constantly have. Right, right. It's way but it's also good. Yeah, Brandon Handley 32:55 it's also not until you recognize how powerful That moment is where you make that choice. Yeah. Right. Just like your point, you know, so, you know, if you're listening, you know, press has got like a V, they're like, you know, there's an intersection there. And this is this is the power of choice. Yeah. Which which not for nothing, it took me 40 years. All right, I'm not I'm not the I'm not the fastest one of the bunch, right to recognize that when the power of choice and exactly what that's gonna mean, first of all, you got to choose to own your life. This is your life that everything that happens is it's a choice, right? You, you made that choice to lose that job at GE because you went on that hike, right? You know, you made it maybe not paresh shah 33:47 consciously, right, maybe not consciously, right. Brandon Handley 33:49 And you showed up there when you showed up there. paresh shah 33:51 Right. Brandon Handley 33:52 You accepted that right? You own it. You said all right. Well, all right. Well, that was a choice I made right and here we are. This is my life now. And these are the The choices that I'm making. And that's the look and again, I think this is stuff that you're teaching with lifter leadership to with the opportunity let's let's talk about, you know, bringing all of who you are to work right like, let's because listen I want I want people to understand that you are leading a spiritually LED, you know, art center of all of who you are your Divine Self. Yes, but you're doing it with a purpose and a passion that is leading others in that direction so that they can know give give me give you give that you give the story because it's yours itself. paresh shah 34:33 Yeah, so our team is this lifters thing is really resonating. It's resonating with a within our team within these young folks who like yeah, that's how we would like to be led, you know, give us responsibilities. let us apply our yes and skill set and show up in different ways. And so When I will describe to you I'm going to draw it but I'll guide in space as well for the audio listeners is like the Four Agreements. Pop quiz asshole. What are the Four Agreements Brandon come on you can nail Brandon Handley 35:15 me I don't I just you know be impeccable with your words like the paresh shah 35:19 right okay? The snipers taking the laser beam off your head. Look, I mean that's a shame. That's I'm going down I'm gonna be impeccable with my word. Brandon Handley 35:30 picking one. paresh shah 35:32 And you know what that might be. All you need to do is be impeccable with your word, put your word out there and then receive and accept and let it go. I think that's pretty much the simple truth that my the teachers who I most respect convey and one of these days I'll get it. Um, but yeah, that was a speed reference would I believe was filmed here in LA so I'd love to see that. Now that I'm in LA and see that school bus with galleries that dun dun dun dun dun Cuz Now I know what the five is. I know what the 405 is, and I think it ends at La. So that's an action movie. But anyway, um, the four agreements are very powerful, be impeccable with your word, always do your best. Don't make assumptions. And what's the other one? There's one more. Okay, listeners, you know it, you know, the back of what Brandon Handley 36:29 you call it. paresh shah 36:30 Don't take anything personal. Okay, that's very, very great one. So those are the poor. And so, and it's all about making agreements with yourself and with what you're willing to accept, in, you know, your your world. Now, there is a collective consciousness where you can't begin to say, Well, you know, I'm agreeing with the violence that's going on or I'm agreeing with the division or the other ring and the brutality and you know, actually And around that is important and essential. So I don't want to, you know, convey that, you know, it's just that simple bippity boppity boo, you know, I'm not agreeing with this, and therefore it doesn't exist and put your head in the sand. So in a similar way to the Four Agreements, lifter leadership has, for what we call mind shifts. We need to shift our minds to adapt and evolve into a new way of being as humans and as humanity. And what's happening is people are aligning up with these ways of being and what we have found from the business perspective. And from the innovation, team motivation, customer loyalty. Sustainability perspective is that this model works for organizations to be able to do their jobs and, and thrive very effectively in today's time, so we have four mind shifts. And it's not a mindset. We don't want anything to be set in stone, everything is always moving always evolve the clue that we are notes in a sacred song. That's just a symphony of energy moving through what appears as the universe to us, which is a song all around us and we are each a unique divine expression and unique divine frequency pulsating in no other way down to where I believe every hair is an antenna, a different little antenna 20% that creates a unique note, and we're all notes in a sacred song. And we could just fly in the song and let it be it just you know, respond to what comes and take the next right action or we can fight and be discarded and attitude. cetera. So we have for mind shift and lifter leadership. The first mind ship, we call serve up, serve up game on is that you game in town serve up and this game is a shift from scarcity to abundance from me, too We from that command control dominating way of being to cooperation and co creation, right and so the just observe up is to recognize that the hunt is over, it's no longer about hunting. Okay lifters don't need to hunt lifters can attract cuz they saw a whole different game. Brandon Handley 39:45 I got to tell I got to tell you, right so i'm gonna i'm in a new I'm in a newer job role right right now and I saw that they were bringing on what they called hunters. Right? And so I had, we had to give a presentation on you know what we're doing or whatever And I, the girl that I'm working with, I was like, Can we change this? kind of want to be a hunter? I was like, Can we change this and we win and we call ourselves rainmakers. Right? I love it and, and they accepted that too because I mean, the art art or title or job was like rain or was hunters right and everybody's accepted our rebranding and I'm just like love paresh shah 40:21 that isn't that feel great? Brandon Handley 40:23 Oh my god cuz I like I don't make me feel like a hunter like I'm running out there like you talking about like with and I just remembered our conversations right I'm like, I don't want to be this photosphere out there trying to catch my catch my next meal, you know and and, paresh shah 40:39 and divvy it up because it's all about market share not very, you know, the mind shift is the market share scarcity, competition, right sharing. That's the new economy. That's the new way of being Brandon Handley 40:50 so to to just create something together. What exactly what can we come together here to co co create, right there's something here and if you and I can can you know If we can be impeccable with our words, right? We can if we can come together in those ways and and and identify each other as humans, trying to, you know, bring better things to the world, right and improvement somehow, then we can co create this thing, right? And yes, I don't need to hunt you, we're going to attract each other. paresh shah 41:20 Exactly. I don't want to be a piece of meat. I don't want to be a piece of meat. So anyway, what the, the first mic is, is about serve up service instead of transaction. Right? And it's serve up. It's a new game. It's a new game. And the game is a very different game with different rules. And when we shift into this lifter way of being, then everything works a lot better or most things work a lot better. So that's serve up the first mind shift that we just talked about. The second mindset is Listen up. Listen up, and we teach four types of listening because listening is The new way is the new language, essentially. And we teach four ways of listening. One way is listening to your embodied dashboard. So what is your intuition telling you what your gut telling you? And let's consider that part of your brain in addition to that logical and rational, you know, kind of more mathematical or analytical way of being which also has its place, but let's really tune in to our embodied listening and go you know, does this feel like it's an integrity does this does this is feel right, what's the right thing to do on the front lines in this situation with this customer and tuning in to that feeling and we call it you know, having more than a feeling it's like really like, it's more than the feeling that gets us into that. It's the spiritual dope, like when you really tap into that vibration of of Basically that that embodied knowingness as an additional way of responding. Then we listen then we have listening to others. And then we have listening to that inner self, which is the whole mindfulness piece. So lifters have a mindfulness aspect. So that is listen Ops, we have server. First one, listen up. The third one is show up. And that's like the centerpiece of this. And there we say it's about writing your yes and breathing. So you've Brandon Handley 43:28 got thanks for tuning in today, guys. This is gonna be a split file. But I want to make sure that the ending where you can connect with Paresh is available to you.
