Episode Notes

Podcast: Cup of Tao Season 1 Episode 2 - Self Limiting Factors

Hosted by Chris L McClish - a man with "many roles, many journeys, and one spirit!"

In this episode: I discuss self-limiting factors that keep us stuck from being fully present and enjoying meaningful moments in life. I do a recap of mindfulness made simple through using the 4 L's. I also tackle the question of the day: "Is there a concept of the 'self' in Taoism".

The Self-Limiting factors: Desiring, Arguing, Ruminating, Analyzing/Comparing, Lacking, Busying.

The 4 L's: 1) Look, 2) Listen, 3) Label, and 4) Let it be.
