You know those days where you just feel that the world is your oyster and nothing is standing in your way? Where the waves crashing on the beach aren’t a reminder of the coming tides, but an assurance that life goes on? Have you ever felt brave? Yeah, neither have I, which is why I think that getting into podcasts would be a huge boost to my self esteem and that I might develop something resembling courage. Unfortunately, I didn’t know where to start, so I decided to go on a deeply spiritual journey in order to find the right podcast for me. By doing this, I have the opportunity to capture my destiny.
The first method I tried was something that my mother had taught me many years ago. I sat in my dimly light room and lit some incense in order for my senses to become heightened. I then spread out on my back, staring at the ceiling and imagining my destiny. In my version of this, I was planning to scroll through a few podcasts and give them a listen, but I happen to do this at the end of a long week and I ended up just falling asleep with my dog. On to phase two.
By phase two, I obviously mean hallucinogenic drugs. I met a guy at work who seemed to give off the vibe that he would know where to get some, and boy was I right about that. We met up after work one day and I paid what I was told was a fair price for what I was getting, although thinking about it now $600 seems like a lot for one hit of a bong, but I am a noob at this. I’m just in it for the spiritual journey within me. However, I was again derailed, as this was my first experience with any kind of drug. Instead of looking upon a clear blue sky to see the name of my podcast written above, I simply stumbled into a Taco Bell and attempted to order something called a Guaco Taco, which I was told did not exist.
You know what they say though, third time’s the charm.
For this one, I went to an obvious place: the Internet. I Google searched “How to go one a spiritual journey” and found some great literature from a variety of different authors across the glove. I spent time perfecting my craft and when I was ready, I opened my podcasts app and started to scroll. I came across one I had heard of before, Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, and I was instantly hooked. Turns out, all I had to do was try.
Hope this helps!
