#04 - Dave Loader

SHOW NOTES for Dave Loader - The Monastery

  • 02:30 - The monastery story - DL: The monastery is in Thailand on the top of a mountain. If you want to visit it you only need to send an email and they’ll tell you when you can come. You don’t have to pay either, you donate the amount you want when your stay is finished.
  • 08:39 - How was your entrance/initiation/entrance? - DL: You enter into your room that besides a bed and pillows it's completely empty. You must dress all in white. They explain different ways to meditate. Explains the daily routine at the monastery.
  • 16:12 - What were your learnings at the monastery? - DL: “Freud would call it the oceanic feeling. What I went there for was to experience the void, a state of consciousness, the feeling of complete connection”
  • 20:25 - Is there any focus on the ego? - DL: “The objective of buddhism is a fundamental change in the individuals definition of self, how they relate to themselves and others” What is ego. 
  • 25:18 - How would you advice people that have a strong ego and this brings them out of balance? - DL: Buddhism is closer to psychotherapy than to religion, they should go to a monastery. They should try to change their metaphysics, listening to lectures, look for insight and enlightenment.  
  • 32:30 - “You are something the whole universe is doing as a singular wave is something that the whole ocean is doing” 
  • 34:11 - Not so long ago you were in a car crash, tell us about it. - DL: “I got hit by a car going to work and I woke up in the hospital after a very strong lucid dream. The doctor asked if I remembered my name, but I didn’t. He said, you are David Loader, but I didn’t recognize that as well. This gave me the motive to understand who I was, I’m more than my name”
  • 44:16 - What are your thoughts on breaking bad habits and making good habits? - DL: “I couldn’t wake up early in the morning even if I had to do something that made me very excited.” How Dave solved this bad habit. 
  • 49:05 - DL explains the “vision board
  • 51:05 - DL explains the role of meditation when forming new habits
  • 54:07 - DL asks the questions to Martyn Cook. What is your perspective on psychedelics and why? MC: I don’t have a wealth of knowledge on psychedelics and I haven’t experienced on psychedelics, but I know people that have. You need to be careful, to do research and to be on an environment that you feel safe. Powerful tools can and should be used for good, but you must be careful not to put them on dangerous hands.
  • 1:00:00 - Do you think psychedelics should be legalized? Why do you think they are illegal - MC: Nothing is black or white, anything that could be used for good, you should be able to use them. Banning alcohol, for example, wasn’t a good policy.
  • 1:04:03 - Requests for the audience? DL: Ask yourself how do you define yourself.
