#130 Will Crist – Transitions and Life Goals

November 12, 2019 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes  

I believe our show today is the most unusual one I have ever done. The reason is, I know almost nothing about our guest today, Will Crist, except that we have experienced some similar paths in our background. He is a priest; I was a minister. He is a consultant and executive coach; I was a consultant and executive coach; and he currently has his own podcast titled, “The Pilgrim on the 405.”

So you get to be part of an unrehearsed and almost totally unprepared conversation between two guys who have experienced life through three similar and unique combinations of life choices.

So let’s discover what Will Crist and Charlie Hedges have in common as well as discovering the wonder of how similarities are, at the same time, naturally unique and distinct.

So… let’s do it.

When Giving is an Act of Pride

November 9, 2019 by Charlie Hedges − 2 Comments

“All you have is what you are, and what you give.” Ursula K. Le Guin

Perhaps the deepest measure of our character, of our very humanity, is how much we go on giving when what we most value is taken from us — when a loved one withholds their love, when the world withdraws its mercy.”

“If equal affection cannot be / Let the more loving one be me,” W.H. Auden wrote in a poem contemplating the courage to love more and to give more, even in the face of the most heartbreaking and elemental disparity of passions. Maria Popova

I often find that Maria Popova’s newsletter Brainpickings wriggles its way into an inspired personal state of mind that leads to several of my blog posts. She is a grand thinker with widespread interests, frequently intersecting with my own. Such is true for this post.

#129 Charlie- Where Do You Reside: Past, Present or Future?

October 30, 2019 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

Hi Paul, it’s good to be here with you once again at OC Talk Radio.

In today’s show I intend you and I get a bit philosophical. I’d like to explore the inter-relationship of past, present and future. Although we technically life in the present… it is fleeting and can always change (sometimes drastically) almost in an instant.

When you think a bit about it, it is crazy. The present is instantly becoming the past as it coincidently almost immediately turns out to be the future as well.

I look at it this way: the past informs our actions in the present and future, the present is the action, and the future is about hope or regret.

 So without much introduction, let’s get into the subject.

Wabi-Sabi: The Art of Expecting Less to Receive More

October 26, 2019 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Wabi-sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional.
― Leonard Koren

So a few months ago I read Leonard Kohen’s book, Wabi-Sabi: For Artists, Designers, Poets and Philosophers (not to be confused with the sushi condiment). Leaning on a traditional Japanese past regarding the art of tea houses and the “wabi-sabi” manner of presentation and service of the tea, Koren makes a moving case for the inclusion of simplicity and tradition in our everyday lives.

October 22, 2019 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes 

NOTE: I mispronounced the last name of my guest at the top of the show. It is Diane “Forster,” not Foster. So sorry. cbh

I have a very special guest today with whom I have much in common. She is Intentional Living Expert, Diane Forster. I really resonate with her title: Intentional Living Expert.

Check this out:

Did you know that 70% of people in the United States are unhappy? That depression and anxiety are at an all time high? That suicides are up 30% since the year 2000, and a staggering 50% for women? And kids as young as 10 are fall prey to suicide.

That was Diane’s story. After her own suicide attempt, she completely reinvented her life and is now helping so many others to live with Intention, with Passion and Purpose, and are living the lives they always dreamed of. There has never been a better time than TODAY to help people in this way.

Before we continue let me tell you a bit about ore about Diane:

DIANE FORSTER is a TEDx Speaker, Award-Winning Inventor, Best Selling Author, TV Host, Podcaster, Intentional Living Expert and Re-Invention Specialist. She works with clients privately to help clear away mindset blocks and limiting beliefs to reach your full potential in business, life and relationships.

Her TV Show and Podcast, “I HAVE TODAY with Diane Forster” and all her other products/programs help people gain confidence and live enriched, empowered, and inspiring lives through their transitions of reinventing themselves.
