Whenever I get grounded, I attract positive energy, and so get electrocuted.

Hello, neighbor.

Hi, Adriene. I was just thinking, have you done a show on various national parks from all over?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:12pm βrian:

Wait, is this drum guy Sean Landers??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:14pm ultradamno:

I am good enough. I am smart enough and gosh darn it I can drum enough.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:14pm βrian:

@common: It's Adriene with one "N"

Whoa, doing the hustle here ...
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:17pm βrian:

So I asked the doc whether I'd be able to play the drums once my arm healed ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:19pm VincentNifigance:

I want to be a drums player.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:24pm Yes:

love this

Nothing is impossible to us but all that which is impossible. Thanks, dude.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:30pm Krys O.:

One thing I have learned is that we can convince ourselves that we are cowards just as we can convince ourselves that we are brave. It's not a constant, but it the awareness of the eternal present moment of Zen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:31pm Krys O.:

This is an excellent show, Adriene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:31pm ultradamno:

I am the best at Romanian
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:32pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

There's a difference between enunciating a phrase internally and having the thought emerge from a deeper process. It feels like one is trying to feed the ribbon through from the wrong end.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:32pm βrian:

Beware of affirmations delivered via orthodontically enhanced apertures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@ c∅ - Huh, you sound positive about that.
  Thu. 11/7/19 6:33pm HuskLife:

Oh damn Kirby!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:33pm βrian:

@ParUbi: I affirm your excellent insight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/7/19 6:33pm coelacanth∅))):

i'm an excellent duck caller. i am the best. i understand duck calls perfectly and always call the correct duck call.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:34pm Krys O.:

Cognitive Therapy helps me often. It's reality testing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:34pm Mandy:

@Krys O, I second what you are saying! I don't know what it is, but saying these things out loud somehow helps
  Thu. 11/7/19 6:35pm Steuben:

KIRBY
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:35pm βrian:

@coel: I still own a duck call, though it was never my calling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:35pm Yes:

:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:35pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

Watching your thoughts is super helpful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:36pm Krys O.:

Naming the voice of our automatic negative thoughts and reasoning with it can be fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/7/19 6:37pm coelacanth∅))):

βrian if i'd seen that one coming i would've ducked
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:38pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

Yes, and dis-identifying with it. It's not a truth speaker.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:38pm Mandy:

Krys, I started therapy last week and just having my therapist say "Who exactly is talking to you in your head like that?" weirdly helped. Like, it wasn't me anymore.
  Thu. 11/7/19 6:38pm Romanian Guy:

On the Romania piece: The word Panamanian and Panama could have been substituted for Romanian and Romania, and it wouldn't make a shred of difference.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:39pm βrian:

Some people are embarrassed by their thoughts. Not that they're bad, but they can be too damned promiscuous to watch.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:41pm βrian:

Pomeranian, maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/7/19 6:41pm coelacanth∅))):

i think i might have to call my negative self by my birth-given name and rename my positive self instead. maybe that's just the negative me talking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:42pm Krys O.:

@Mandy Indeed! I named my inner voice Pelicula because it tends to play my failings and embarrassing moments over again like a flashback in a movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:43pm Krys O.:

@cØ Ha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:43pm Mandy:

Krys, I'm getting images of that "watching films" scene from Clockwork Orange. Yep that's me
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:44pm βrian:

In all seriousness, I want this show to last all night, Adriene. Makes me want to laugh, makes me want to sit zazen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:45pm Krys O.:

I hear you, Mandy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:46pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

Self-knowledge is a lot harder than it seems, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/7/19 6:46pm coelacanth∅))):

i already know i'll be listening to this again soon, when i'm home (which i'm not) and ...just listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:46pm melinda:

hi all
  Thu. 11/7/19 6:47pm HuskLife:

Yoshis fuckin Island!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:47pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

and it's available as a podcast!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:48pm βrian:

My former roomate thought self-knowledge was a right-handed compliment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:49pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

i seriously have an internal team of negative-to-dumb-to-marginally helpful internal voices, so each gets a name
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/7/19 6:49pm coelacanth∅))):

the affirmation sounded to me exactly as a hypnotherapist would approach it. the subconscious can welcome those ideas more easily than even the open-to-change consciousness -for lack of judgement, no predetermined reactions...
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:50pm βrian:

Any marginally helpful internal voice deserves its own twitter feed, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:52pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

I think so!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:52pm Yes:

clicky star
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:52pm Krys O.:

@Brian That explains the bots on Twitter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/7/19 6:52pm coelacanth∅))):

i should think so,βrian...but i don't do tweets; only duck calls.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:53pm ParUbi of Pittsburgh:

definitely one to revisit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:53pm Krys O.:

This music sends me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:54pm Krys O.:

Thanks, Adriene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:55pm Rich in Washington:

What a wonderful show. Just brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:55pm Yes:

  Thu. 11/7/19 6:55pm castor:

this is definitely what I needed to hear tonight, thanks so much Adriene!

So cool! David Quinlan, a WFMU DJ in the early 80s used to read books on the air in between music.

Thanks Adriene

I'm all in for the book club
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 11/7/19 6:58pm coelacanth∅))):

Thanks Adriene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Thu. 11/7/19 6:58pm Carmichael:

There was a DJ at KDVS (Liz Berg's old station in Davis) who would come on every Friday morning with an hour of affirmation, backed by ethereal new age tunes. Very soothing.
