04 Jun Daniel Levin: The Mosaic of Your Life
Episode 82: Daniel Levin
This week on the show, Daniel Levin joins me as we talk about his book “The Mosaic,” the feeling of connectedness, the need for like minded communities to dissolve, the exquisiteness of the ordinary, and challenging our core beliefs.
Also, I talk about my improv comedy over the last couple of weeks. I did my live show last Saturday and it was a huge achievement.
Daniel and I discuss:
- The story about a street artist in The Mosaic and how people came to him and gave him broken pieces of things that used to be beautiful
- The beauty of life is not who we used to be
- On our own, we can only be what we can be but together, we can be so much more
- Being one piece away from an entirely new reality
- How he experienced the feeling of connectedness
- On not knowing what tomorrow brings
- What his experiment is all about
- Reconnecting the disconnected
- No matter how bad things are, you are one connection away from something entirely new
- Surrendering to the force that comes through us
- The compassion of listening is to allow them to feel for a moment the exquisiteness of what it feels to not carry your burden around for a moment
- On thinking how extraordinary we think we have to be
- Rediscovering the exquisiteness of the ordinary
- Different viewpoints on being ordinary and extraordinary
- Challenging our core beliefs
- Seeing beneath our superficial differences and discovering we all have a lot in common
More about Daniel Levin
Levin walked away from an opportunity to run a billion dollar business, to hitchhike around the world to find happiness and inner peace.
He studied in a seminary five years and left one day before becoming a Rabbi and lived as a Monk in a monastery for 10 years.
As Director of Business Development, he grew Hay House from $3,000,000 to $100,000,000 in revenue. He is rare blend of businessman and mystic who sees what others do not see.
He is the author of The Mosaic, a beautiful story that touches the heart and soothes the soul. It is a book that helps us see what we do not see and as such much of its magic exists in the space between the words.
