Pyra makes a decision about the future of the show: she’ll change the direction and format of this show to be more of a reflection of her changing priorities and direction in life. This week’s in-between episode is a wrapping up of the old version of the show and a preview of the new, in which Pyra talks about stand up comedy and her other projects and her new old obsessions.
She then talks about mini-retreats, new priorities and practises, and gives side notes on why you probably don’t want to search for “Tibetan sky burial” on YouTube (with a side note on the side note about the relationship between the Chinese Communist Party, gawking tourists, and pissed off monks), when karma’s kinda funny, and weird anxiety about rising tides.
Another week, another show, another tattoo session…
Also, Pyra decides she should maybe learn Japanese in case she decides to do the Shikoku pilgrimage years from now, has an online business idea that she won’t discuss because Google, and talks about reading Thich Nhat Hanh’s “No Mud, No Lotus” and Brian Weiss’ “Many Lives, Many Masters.”
This week: Pyra slowly starts working on her New Year’s resolution to cook at home more but opts for McDonald’s rather than risk “catching the hipsterism” on Main Street; helps her brother with WordPress; mentions her growing mini-obsession with the Shikoku pilgrimage in Japan; spends 9 hours rejigging her blog; does absolutely nothing on the new maQLu album; and goes internet rabbit hole digging with a bunch of random web surfing about the Freemasons.
