Turn off the news, really minimize social media, and don't look at your phone for the first hour of the day. Removing these kinds of things are absolutely vital before we have any hope in hell of understanding what we actually think. Whatever I'm getting emotionally charged at; that's a mirror for me in my self-growth and spiritual realization. I ask myself, 'How am I being a tyrant towards myself? Have I already enslaved myself? How am I censoring myself?' to find out what I can learn from my triggers and then the tyrants become our teachers. - JP Sears

PaleoValley's 100% Grass-Fed Beef Sticks

Paleovalley 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are the only beef sticks in the USA made from 100% grass fed/grass finished beef and organic spices that are naturally fermented.

Their 100% Grass Fed Beef Sticks are unlike anything else on the market. In fact, they were recently voted in Paleo Magazine as one of the top snacks of the year.

The reason is that they are committed to making the highest quality, clean products that are free from problematic ingredients.

Their beef comes from 100% grass fed cows raised entirely on natural grass pastures by family farmers right here in the USA. As a result they are healthy and happy.

PaleoValley's Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks

Paleovalley Pasture-Raised Turkey Sticks were created to make healthy snacking easier.

Their turkey sticks are made from turkeys who are allowed to live as nature intended... on organic grass pastures with plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise. The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s.

Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being "free range" – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most "free range" turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight.

Their truly pasture-raised turkeys are given full access to outdoor, pesticide-free pasture with plenty of grass and insects for them to nibble on.

Power Quotes From The Show

Gender Dysphoria + The Current War of the Psyche

"We can do incredible harm while we're trying to do good. It can be so uncomfortable to see someone else uncomfortable that we want to help them. The method that we're doing to help people with gender dysphoria can be incredibly hurtful on them and that is very selfish of us to inflict hurt with our helping hand because we don't have the courage to experience our own discomfort." - JP Sears

How Human Connection Keeps Us in Alignment

"Human connection - we've been told it's the deadliest thing for us but I think it's the most enlivening thing for us. It reminds us who we really are and we need it. Part of that human connection is understanding, 'What do I actually think?' - Not just what your brain is thinking and the thoughts that are in there but what you actually think and what your hear wants. The more we can let our words and actions be congruent with what our thoughts are and what our heart's guidance is, the more peace and purpose we will feel. When that is out of alignment, we start to suffer." - JP Sears

Letting Go of Constrictive Energy

"To me, feeling nervous and constrictive energy is fear and a common denominator of maybe a lot of those fears is the fear of being who and how I really am in this moment. Will that be accepted by others; by myself? Will I get approval from my peers? I don't know how I will show up in the upcoming given moment so there can be fear of the unknown. The more we get accustomed to being curious of how we're going to show up rather than trying to align with a fictitious expectation, the more those constrictions go away." - JP Sears

Sears has rejected being categorized as either "sincere" or "humorous", explaining that he is both, and the premise of the question is like asking "do you have a right hand or do you have a left hand?"
