In this episode, host Robin Masiewicz and regular guests Jamie and Gloria continue their discussion about learning to focus on one thing at a time and doing tasks more consciously. Robin talks about Zen Tasking and eliminating distractions. The group also talks about Zen driving, hypermiling, and the advent of self-driving cars.
Key points from this episode:
Focus on one thing at a time, and give it your full attention
When we try to multi-task, what actually happens is we end up switching back-and-forth between tasks, paying less attention to both.
The more you switch back-and-forth, the more time you waste and the lower your quality of work
Distractions such as cell phone and text messaging are addictive, but you can train yourself not to respond to every ping or poke.
Schedule time for yourself; give yourself some uninterrupted time to work, relax, or reflect

3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.

Hypostasis of the Archons; the Dimensional Element of our Warfare w Zen Garcia
Join Kenneth, John and Cathy in the chat room while they discuss the ever increasing crescendo of apocalyptic headlines and warnings. Tonight we will be welcoming brother Zen Garcia back to the program to discuss the Hypostasis of the Archons. We know Ephesians 6 tells us that we do not fight against flesh and blood, but with principalities and rulers of the darkness; so this evening we will explore the "alien" fallen-angelic beings, greys and reptilian serpent creatures (the Archons) that plague mankind along with the interdimensional demons expanding our understanding of this formidable enemy of mankind.

"Zen teacher Karen Maezen Miller is known for helping her readers and students understand that the contentment they think of as “out there” is actually here and now. When she and her family land in a house in California with a hundred-year-old Japanese garden, she uses the paradise in her backyard to glean the living wisdom of our natural world. Miller’s recounting of the rocky path she and her husband navigated in their new home demonstrates how fear, anxiety, and doubt can blind us."
