Leo has touched a deep useful life technique. I have years of work on policy work. But sometimes I ask myself a basic question on what is policy and how to solve a particular problem I might caught myself surprise that I can’t even answer visit question from my work!
I need to sit down and contemplating each day ideally. I want my mind to generate ideas, true ideas!

Keep asking and probing!

Lee says:

I love pondering at sunset!

Even just Sit and idling thinking can be a good start

Leo encourage to ponder more large domain type of questions other than yourself.

Use a journal to “contemplate” is great for some!

L says:

Leo emphasize the transformation type of pondering

Pondering during the action!

Hanna says:

Insight that penetrates the illusions and superficial stuff
That’s what serious pondering is for

Ask the mind the right question is a successful beginning already

Hi Leo,

I have been listening to your podcast channel for a while now since the beginning of 2016 and I thought I should write to thank you for all your devotion and all the effort that goes into researching and making these wonderful podcasts. I can imagine its quite time consuming and needs a lot of focus.

I personally feel a great sense of growth and development and I am more thoughtful of my actions and how they impact on my life and to those around me.

Keep on Keeping on!

From Kenya,
Many thanks!

Hey Leo
Really nice video.

Have you read a book called “The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World”? It talks about brain hemispheres, mainly the different viewpoints of the world. I suspect you haven’t and I think you would like it. It goes really well together with what you talk in general, only from a different angle. But the combination of those views is richened in the process.

After reading that I think you might reconsider your view on art not reaching the Being level of things
