Rodolfo Young spent two years in silent practice. He wasn’t sitting in some ashram somewhere. He was out in the world – and chose not to speak. We talk about what he learned during those two years, and why he decided to do this.
In addition, we go into some fascinating mental models such as understanding the ego as an ice block, cultivating curiosity, and how true choice carries with it the burden of responsibility (and why that’s actually a good thing).
“In life we’re going to always have a diversity of wants, the real power comes in where we decide to choose one out of all the different wants. That power isn’t just in the thing that gets chosen, it doesn’t mean that it’s the best thing or the thing that is going to be forever, it just means that you had the empowered choice. The ability to say, ‘Hey, I’m choosing this. I chose it.’ And that’s where the power is, is that you get to choose. And also it comes with so much more sincerity, authenticity, and also vulnerability, because if you were the one to choose it means that you’re also the one to own the responsibility of that choice.”
