Russell Brand, world-famous comedian, actor, and podcaster, joins Jack to talk Donald Trump, individualism, ethics, artificial intelligence, freedom, awakening, and keeping in touch with Ram Dass after his passing. "Ram Dass was a good friend. I can get quiet in meditation and I can hear Ram Dass's voice saying, 'Yeah you're upset about that, but who we are underneath all that is bigger.' It's really the play of consciousness and the state of the heart. And when we tune in and ask ourselves, as Ram Dass would, 'What's your highest and best intention?' that begins to guide our activity, but it has to be courageous and fearless." – Jack Kornfield In this episode, Russell Brand and Jack mindfully navigate:Trust and faith, integrity and authenticityDonald Trump and ethics, warfare and the the human heartGlobalism, media, censorship, and controlArtificial Intelligence (A.I.), Sam Altman, and technologyCreating a wise society based on freedom, self-expression, and compassionFacism, decentralization, spirituality, and empowermentHow Jack keeps in touch with Ram Dass after his passing, and how his teachings can help us now "You've got the establishment on one side, and you've got the anti-establishment on the other side. No amount of technology—nanotechnology, A.I., biotechnology, war technology—is going to stop continuing warfare, nor business as usual, because the source of warfare is the human heart." – Jack Kornfield This episode is a simulcasted conversation from the "Stay Free with Russell Brand" podcast, where Russell provides thought-provoking conversations with inspiring people he admires to share their unique stories and perspectives.
