Episode 49 – Discover a More Powerful Way to Relate

In this episode of The Rob Scott Show, discover how to improve your ability to relate.

Relating is the “game of being human.” Mastering it in a useful way might be counterintuitive.

It’s not just about relating to other people. There’s actually a meta level of relating you might not know about. Find out why relating outside of “self” is the super skill we actually need.

If you can find the connection between your meaning making and relating, you gain a new sense of freedom. If you can be more aware of how you relate in and out of the “self-world model,” you’ve evolved your consciousness.

Episode 47 – How to Improve Relationships (… and it’s NOT what you think!)

This episode of The Rob Scott Show explores “reality” as you know it to be. Rob and Sarah talk about why we’re not actually relating to others in the same reality, like most of us think.

Like chasing a moving horizon, we get stuck on the “treadmill of time.” Many of our problems come from the belief that we’re “not there yet.”

Episode 44 – The Secret to Mastering Free Will

Our “story of self” is a concept that’s created within the construct of time. It can be useful, but when we get lost in it, the “self” starts to make us feel like there’s no freedom of choice or free will.

Do you feel like you desire change, but your behavior is out of your control? If you do, you’ll definitely want to hear this episode of the Rob Scott Show.

It will help you gain more agency over free will. More of our behavior than we realize is reflexive. There’s only one possible place that free will can exist (if it exists at all).

We can become more conscious and more aware of our impulses. We can use and choose thoughts that inspire different behaviors in the “now.”

Episode 43 – A Smarter Way to Navigate Values

In this episode of the Rob Scott Show, you’ll learn a new way to navigate your values. Rob and Sarah redefine what values are and how value judgments come into play.

Values are often running very unconsciously for us. We use values to help navigate what we think and how we behave. When value conflicts arise it can cause us to suffer. Self love and acceptance can be crucial.

Remembering a value is a judgement we’re making about “self” and the world, helps us understand them. Understanding our impulses and how to navigate our own values is crucial.

This skill is necessary in solving bigger societal issues.

Episode 42 – How Memory Traps You in a Mental Model

In this episode, Rob shares how much modeling plays a part in our construction of the world.

We’re modeling all the time, and almost all modeling is happening unconsciously. Models are a 3 dimensional way to show how thoughts impact our reality.

Models come from “frozen” thoughts. It’s important to understand how this process can impact us.

We’re deeply putting meaning on everything. Modeling is a way to recognize this. Even “self” is a model.

Episode 41 – The Power of Shifting Your Lenses

This episode of the Rob Scott Show is all about “lenses.”

Our beliefs come from oversimplifying a meaning in a single moment. The more we attach to an assuredness of meaning, the more unconscious our beliefs can become.

Creating beliefs are a lot like lenses… built to alter what we see and to made to be invisible.

An unbreakable attachment is actually an error. It can create a delusional reality.

We need to master meaning making, as it’s essential to being human.

Creating a looser attachment to the meaning we make in a single moment gives a wiser perspective.

Remember, you can always leave the attachment and judgement of the meaning to be in the “is-ness” of the moment. This allows you to re-examine if your meaning is useful or needs to shift.

Episode 40 – The Secret to Stop Suffering

The “being” part of life is actually just as important as the “doing.” The most important paradox to master if you want to optimize your “being,” is duality vs. non duality.

Duality is the judgement of “good” and “bad.” It lives in our meaning making and thinking. Non-Duality is accessing the “is-ness” and breaking your attachment to judgement completely.

Nesting duality is a common spiritual mistake. Both sides of the paradox are important to master.

Wisdom comes from having the capability to transcend and include. It’s what leaves you full of wonder, curiosity, and gratitude.

It starts with experiencing a Fundamental Shift. Growing the ability to move attention between these two parts of being.
