Amazing insights. We will certainly be sharing some of these on our shows, "Racially Blind" and "Bipolar Berry". They are works in progress, like all of us, all the time. haha You are incredibly generous, G

How can we submit a question for the next podcast episode? Or are all the episodes pre-recorded? My question is about the ego and pain body. If I understand correctly, Tolle says that we must be present in the moment to escape the ego and disarm the pain body. How can one do this when constantly surrounded by people who test you in every sense, who hurt and insult you, and push you to the edge of sanity? I'm trying really hard here, but I feel like stepping out of my ego to avoid hurt also means stepping out of my self, and letting others walk all over me. It sounds like enabling their abuse as I wouldn't be defending myself; I'd be busy struggling to be present. How can I prevent others from walking all over me, hurting me constantly, while disarming the pain body that they constantly reactivate? Thanks.

Ruba Ali Al-Hassani Ruba, if you can you should distant yourself from that people, if you can't keep present but talk with assertiveness and from your heart, without falling in the drama. You can remain present and at the same time being asertive and open. Good luck.

I talked with my son about this very thing this weekend. I felt as though I was not given a voice as a child and I tried to give my son that ability to express himself when he was growing up. I got so many looks from other people wondering why I would allow my kid to speak to me "crazy" I'm proud of how my son has grown up to be. not prefect but well rounded
