Tara did not attend school or see doctors and had minimal interaction with the outside world for 17 years. Despite this unorthodox upbringing, Tara taught herself enough mathematics and grammar to earn acceptance into Brigham Young University. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her to Cambridge University, where she earned her Ph.D. in history. This coming-of-age story of courage serves as an inspiring reminder to anyone looking to find their own voice. This conversation was recorded in front of an audience.

This is too shallow. And the definition of karma represented here is very superficial. Karma is much more complicated than that.

I use to watch super soul Sunday several years back decided to listen to the podcast of it , and chose this episode because of Gary. This is hardcore giving me anxiety , the music sounds like a freakin truecrime podcast. The way Gary and Oprah and the guest are speaking is really creeping me out. I don’t remember Gary sounding that way. I just wanted to listen to something wholesomely enlightening . I mean I heard the message but… the music and the way people are talking is really putting a knot in my stomach.

I am so grateful for all of the warriors in the world and after listening to this came to me that we must start with the boys little boys young men. We keep talking about the women And I love that it is so important but not the issue which is the men, Women are infinitely strong we pull it from places we did not know we had but there is a disconnect set allows the status quo to remain and we must address that issue and make change in the hearts of men

we are taught to remember death every day and visit the graves which helps minimise the value of materialistic life and problems. and reminds us that this life is not permanent
