This week we talk to Timber Hawkeye
Timber Hawkeye is the author of the very popular book Buddhist Boot Camp. He offers a non-sectarian approach to being at peace with the world.
His book was created from a series of blog posts and emails that friends encouraged him to publish. The book is a straightforward, plain spoken discussion of ways to live a better life.

Great conversation. The practice of explaining the emotions rather than chiseling them into solidity to become permanent parts of our character is something we unfortunately too good at by nature. A similar recommendation is presented in Stefan Molyneux,’s book “Real-Time Relationships”
Another great definition I remember is the practice of “Observing Ego”
