EP156 We Are All Connected in Life, So Let’s Dance!
In this episode, I talk about a recent revelation I had about the interconnectedness of life while caring for our youngest daughter.
Welcome to the Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host. And today, I want to talk about – so I’ve always had or I’ve always heard this spiritual principle and it goes like this, something like this and it’s different in each wherever you’re studying. But the principle is this that we’re all connected, that somehow you are me and I’m you. And I had to be honest, that never really made sense to me especially when I first started my spiritual journey. It was like this dude who is a killer is not me, like it’s just not.
So – and to be able to see that like somehow we’re connect and this and that. It just didn’t make sense. And I don’t know if you’ve heard of that spiritual principle or if I’m even explaining it right. But yeah, for me that was always – it was like a principle that didn’t make sense.
And then this morning for the first time, it just kind of clicked. So this morning, my wife had our three oldest kids. We got 6, 4, and 2 right now, all birthdays coming up though because we have all winter birthdays. So my wife has the three oldest kids at the dentist and I’m home with Addie, our baby. She is 9 months old right now.
And she – it was kind of a beautiful morning. So I got her down for a nap and while she was down for a nap, I was sitting next to our family altar. So her crib inside in our bedroom right now and our family altar is inside our bedroom as well. And I was just sitting there in prayer and meditation and having a beautiful prayer and meditation. And she was kind of waking up and she didn’t know I was there.
So I got to listen to her coo and kind of crying a little bit and then she started playing. And then I got up and I got her and I had her and we were lying on my bed for a little bit, her and I. And she kept trying to crawl off the bed so I had to – so I picked her up and I took her downstairs.
And we were downstairs and I just had this moment where I looked at her and she was looking at me. We were in this beautiful moment and I had this, it just kind of like hit me that we’re all in this big dance and there is literally – those people that come into our lives and people that exit our lives and things that come into our lives and things that exit our lives and all the things we’re doing throughout the day and the things that are coming at us. It’s just this big, amazing, beautiful dance that we get to sort of be co-creators in and witnesses at the same time. There are so many things that are completely out of our control.
But I was looking at this dance and I saw it. I was like, “Wow! You and I are …” looking at my daughter, I was like, you and I are in this dance together right now like somehow you came in to my life and we’re in this dance together, my wife and the other kids and the community that we’re in, the school that we’re in.
And I started to see how we’re all connected. I really did this morning. It was like wow! Because we’re all in this human experience, this dance. And then even the animals and the plants and we’re just all connected in it, right? All connected in this amazing dance full of colors and emotions and highs and lows and uncontrollable things and controllable things on this planet spinning around the sun, this spaceship earth. It’s just wild and we’re all connected in some way.
So, I guess it’s not really – maybe there is a teaching in there but something that was just awesome that I got to experience today and wanted to share that with you. So hopefully, that brightens your day. Hopefully that puts a little smile on your face. If there’s anything that I wish for this podcast, it’s two things. It’s to help you see things differently and to put a little smile on your face.
So, hope you’re enjoying the episodes and we’ll see you on the next one. Peace!
KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
Alright, much love guys. Again, that is the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast, our sister podcast.
ANNOUNCER: Thank you for listening to the Business of Life Podcast. Apply what you learned today and you’ll be one step closer to creating the life you love to live.
