“Gnosis” is the name for a mental state that you’ve probably experienced before, if only accidentally. This state is a solution to anxiety and a way to “get out of your own way” in creating what you want. I share some perspectives from Carl Jung, Steven Pressfield, Eckhart Tolle, Robert Anton Wilson, and the occultist Peter Carroll. I also tell the story of my first heartbreak and overcoming my mental noise.

TLDL if you don’t have the attention span to listen: Spend less time looking at your phone and you’ll be more creative. That said, instead of watching this on your screen, how about downloading the podcast version and going for a walk?
