  5. #Corey Do you think our inherent fear of death and dying keeps some people in a belief system which colors the way in which they see the world and the different people in it?

  7. Does Corey or Charlie think sometimes that fear or resentment builds some people up only to later tear them down?!

  8. #Corey #Charlie On the subject of relationships: The relationships we have with all those around us affect who we are. How do the broken/dysfunctional relationships that we have in any aspect of our lives play a part in developing who we are and directing where our lives progress and where they remain stagnant?

  9. #Charlie Vadium Katelnikov wrote, "You see what you believe. You attract to yourself those experiences that match your existing belief system. Change your thoughts to improve your life and expand your mind. Replace beliefs that are hindering your development with positive ones that will help you."
    First of all, do you agree with this?, and second, how do we go about changing the thoughts of people who are completely content in their belief system and do not believe their development is hindered, therefore they can't or won't change themselves, for example, religious fanatics. How do we go about changing their mind set and in turn, start changing the world? Especially when so many live in parts of the world that do not allow or encourage free thought, or becoming more aware of the world around them.

    Looking forward to the show with you and Corey and will really miss it when you are away. Hopefully, you will be able to check in from time to time, maybe via Skype. Sean Astin used it on his show and it worked pretty well. Just a thought for Here's A Thought! I wish you well back East, and great success in all the shows!

  13. To make someone happy, give him these 3 things: attention, affection and appreciation.
    I think that's a start to change the world.

  14. Thanks fior a great show! It was very interesting, covering a number of topics. As usual, the time just flew by. The conversation on fear was particularly intriguing. Speaking as a person who has an absolute fear of talking in front of a lot of people, and have never quite conquered it, despite having had to do it a number of times, I would love to hear what you have to say to people whose fear affects them physically, like losing your voice or actually throwing up! My mother was one of these people!
    Anyway, it was a wonderful send off show for Charlie and very enjoyable! Safe travels Charlie!
    Feel better soon Janelle!

  16. WHOA. Can you guess which part of the show I'm addressing LOL? Good thing you knew you'd be getting mail about it. The shows themselves were really interesting, and loved the thoughts about telling your "fears" (homunculus...reminded me of the creepy dwarf on Twin Peaks!) that they aren't real and just moving forward and taking the risk.
    That said...WHOA. At first my anger reared its ugly head, but after thinking and re-watching that portion, it made me more sad than mad. Charlie...you sound just like the thing you criticize...intolerant, judgmental, phobic, and unwilling to accept the belief of others. I am floored that you would consider religion(plus other groups that do a lot of good, such as Masons, Elks, college fraternities, etc) to be inherently evil with no good coming out of them!! What kind of churches have you been involved in, that would cause such hate and anger? I know of a GREAT one(in New Jersey, maybe you should come here *wink*) that walks their talk, with a large food pantry, ESL classes, addiction recovery meetings, etc. Of course, we believe in something that you can't see with your eyes or touch with your hands, but that doesn't mean it's not REAL.
    And yes, there are bad eggs that make it hard for the rest of us. Do you know why? BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT MAKES THE NEWS. Frats don't just sing racist songs and rape women...they raise a lot of money for great causes, they serve, and they are a brotherhood. I don't want to go down the "Indiana Rabbit Hole"(unless you ask), but trust me...Christians are having big discussions about this issue, and how to handle it in a loving way. The message you have created in your head, is not what people are really thinking and feeling. But I also know that nothing I say or do will be able to conquer that, because it doesn't fit the narrative that has already been put out there. It isn't the first time, and it won't be the last. It's just a shame that the same people(not only you) who insist that "Islam is a religion of peace, and the fanatics are just a small faction" will insist that the "Christian fanatics" represent all, and the people like me are just a small faction. It's terribly frustrating, but it's also the reality. We call it "spiritual warfare".

    1. WOW! First I want to say I AGREE with MissJoAnn's comment! With that being said here's my thoughts!
      Just because a person is Catholic doesn't mean that they agree with the "group." For instance I am Catholic but I don't agree with all of the teachings or beliefs of the Catholic Church.
      Same goes for any "groups." Are you going to go along with other Chelsea fans who do something that you don't agree with? If you stop and look we all belong to different groups in and throughout our lives. It is a part of human nature. YES , unfortunately there are "bad apples" in every group. I'm sorry but...HOW IN THE WORLD CAN YOU COMPARE normal groups of people (who yes have a few bad apples) to the like of ISIS? COME ON!!!
      Are not political parties part of those same groups as clubs and lodges?
      1) They have their own internal set of ethics.
      2) They have people and causes who are greater or at least think they are.
      3) They behave differently in a group than alone.
      Seems to me that that makes them a part of "groups" that you said were a "bad thing."
      Anyone who owns a business and refuses to serve or help someone because of race, handicap or sexual orientation, are actually not very smart businessmen. Plus it's not just Christian businesses who have denied service. Unfortunately it's something that happens everyday and yes it is wrong.
      My beliefs in God has not stopped me in anyway from living my life authentically or from leaning into life!

    2. I wanted to review this section of the show and really try to really take a good chance to analyze what Charlie was saying. I do agree that laying a blanket label that every group, religious or otherwise, is inherently evil is actually unfair because that is not the case. To me, I find that fallacy comes about when people use whatever group they are a part of as an excuse to have a separate code of ethics for when people are in the group than if they are by themselves. That's where I see the tribalism factor that Charlie has mentioned so many times before. That's where people try to use an affiliation with any group in particular to claim justification to behave differently than they would individually, and, to me, that is the problem. No matter the group, it's easy to see that happen when people claim affiliation with any group whatsoever, especially when they are participating as a part of that group. Many religions, however, focus on the individual and are full of teachings for the individual to apply to their own lives. The same thing applies to many other groups whose sole purpose is to help people make the most out of themselves and lean forward as they deal with world around them. A person can still be authentic as a part of a group, so long as they do not allow that group's rules and internal set of ethics rule their own authentic set of ethics. That, to me, is the key: not allowing group mentality to cloud individual ethics and authenticity. Both the positive and the negative can be applied to any group whatsoever. However, the simple fact is that people are still going to be associated with groups simply because we crave connections with like-minded people. Even those who say that they will not associate with any group or religion because they don't want to deal with the separate code of ethics within them end up in a group, even if the groups don't have official names or organizations, of like-minded people. Those groups are just as likely to develop their own internal set of ethics that could cause people to act differently as a part of the group than they would individually. Authenticity and leaning forward does not have to be eliminated simply because of association with a group, religious or otherwise, but maintaining it requires more effort on the part of the individual to simply establish their own code of ethics and maintain them even within the group setting.

    3. Well said Becky and JoAnn. And, if anyone is truly interested in the good that can come out of groups working for the common good (especially those "evil" fraternities), just google THON.

  18. Great show guys, Charlie and Corey. Was visiting mom so I am going to listen again when it's quiet and I can absorb it all better. I thought you both were on point about mostly everything but I look forward to really catching the repeat of it. Charlie wish you well with your plays and cannot wait to see you in RI on June 30 for My Fair Lady". My favorite actor in my favorite play, Icing on the cake. Really looking forward to making the "in person connection". Until then, all the best. <3

  19. Both shows provided extremely thought provoking discussion. I can very much appreciate the idea that different things can cause us to experience fear. I think that Charlie hit on something very poignant when he mentioned the fear of humiliation being something that only humans experience. To tie that to what Corey said, that's a fear that comes from the fact that we, as humans, are the only species that can be affected by another individual's opinion of us. The fear that another person's opinion of us is somehow going to affect who we are can be extremely incapacitating, though, referring to the definition Corey found, that fear is an imagined fear. As much as I am frequently the one who will go about doing my own thing regardless of what other people might think, I can also say that this is probably one of the biggest things that causes me to experience fear in my life. Of course, this isn't to say that I'm afraid to make a complete fool out of myself- trust me, that pretty much happens without me even trying. I often say that my life is basically just one gigantic embarrassing moment, so a fear of humiliation in that respect is not what I find affecting my life as frequently. When it comes to that kind of humiliation, the embarrassing moments in life are the ones that make the best memories and allow us to connect to others in very meaningful ways, probably because of the vulnerability Corey discussed. For me, the fear of humiliation actually comes in times when I have to put forth my ideas and thoughts because of the fear that I am not going to be able to adequately expound on and defend them. Many times, even in forums where I feel safe in expressing my thoughts, I find myself mulling over what I want to say and thinking for extremely long periods of time about how I might actually say it and then even longer convincing myself to actually do so. For me, there are certain keys to overcoming any of the fears that influence life, the first of which is allowing vulnerability to have a presence. Redefining the motivation behind an action is also a key to overcoming a seemingly incapacitating fear simply because it means that I have a different reason for doing what I do. An altered motivation alters the perception of a fear.
    Whether the fears that were discussed are simply on a personal level or if they encompass something far larger, such as religion, changing the motivation behind our actions is an extremely powerful tool to overcome a fear that clouds our views. The same goes for simply changing the perspective from which we view something that causes fear.

    1. It is hard to generalize all groups, both religious and other ones. To say that joining any group is bad, is a bit harsh! But, I can see where Charlie is coming from, and Corey, to a certain extent. A lot of groups are there for the express purpose to help the individual, first and foremost. I agree that it is the human condition to want to belong! To fit in! To be surrounded by like-minded people, and most people do manage to find such a group with people who share a common need or a common interest.
      Groups, by definition, have to have a set of rules and/or ethics for their members to follow. It is possible, and many people manage it, to belong to such a group and keep a balance between the wants of the group and their own beliefs. A lot of people enjoy this state. They feel the sense of "belonging" but do not feel the need to follow the group or members of the group, blindly. They can remain an independent, authentic person who is a member of a particular group. This person can be a member of the Catholic Church, for example, and still practice birth control, or an avid fan of a sports team, without rioting and destroying property, or worse, if their team should lose.
      That being said, many people lose their identity when joining a group. Their need to belong, and not to stand out or disappoint the group, overrides their personal beliefs. The support and encouragement of other members give them a sense of empowerment and often leads them to act within the group in ways they would not act as an individual. Whether it is a group of white supremacists abusing a black man, righteous people burning women at the stake because they were thought to be witches, or people refusing to offer services to gays, they are examples of a group imposing their ideas on their members, and said members acting in ways they would probably not act on their own.
      The hope would be, that people could join a group and enjoy the camaraderie and common goals that group gives them, without losing their individuality and authenticity.
      A lot of us can, but sadly, too many can't.

    2. That's very much how I feel as well, and really what I was trying to say- though I really didn't do it very well. It's possible to maintain an individual's authenticity while being a part of a group, while, at the same time, it's possible to lose that when put into a group setting. It seems that whole point of what Charlie and Corey were making is the fact that any group setting, be it religious or otherwise, is prone to allowing the group's internal set of ethics to dictate that something done within the group or for the good of the group is acceptable, even though it would never be so from any individual. We also can't lay a blanket label that every group or religious organization of any kind is evil and is simply trying to create it's own set of rules and ethics and should therefore be avoided at all costs. Charlie even said that he was not saying that people should not join any group whatsoever, rather that the group itself should not be the overpowering focus and create a sense that it is greater than the individual and therefore have cause to create it's own set of rules and ethics. I am a member of religion that very much focuses on individuals, but when you get a large group of people who share the same belief system, you can still see this fallacy rear it's ugly head. Yet, no where in the religious doctrine or guidelines does it say anything about different rules applying to a group than to an individual. In fact, most religious doctrines actually teaches the opposite. I think that's the part the struck a nerve with a number of people when Charlie said that all organizations and religious groups are inherently evil because they are subject to that fallacy. I think it's more in the way that the organizations are used that cause the problem. And the problem happens because people are human and they superimpose their own understanding and interpretations on the teachings or basis of the group, and then mob mentality takes over and somehow, the fact that people are a part of the group means that they can get away with things that they would never do on their own. Every group is open to that fallacy and that is why there are the "bad eggs" that crop up. When the white supremacist abuses a black man or the Christians refuse service to gay couples, those are examples of the bad eggs who allow the mob mentality to rule and change what they believe is acceptable simply because they are doing it for the "good of the group" or something they believe is bigger and more important than any one individual. And yes, sadly there are many who cannot or will not maintain their own identity and authenticity when they join any group. But, in the end, every individual is responsible for themselves and their own actions. The mob mentality and the problem with groups creating their own set of ethics and morals is that, for many people, it justifies behavior and takes away personal responsibility under the guise of "being for the good of the group".

  20. Yes Becky! You put it very well. It is probably unfair to lump all organizations as 'bad'. There are, as you say, bad apples in every group and it is up to us as individuals, to be true to ourselves and not follow the 'mob mentality'. Charlie did indeed say, that he wasn't saying belonging to a group was bad, unless you let the group make you do what you would not do as an individual.
