While the episode was recorded quite awhile ago our new direction of leaving the episode raw and uncut starts with our conversation with Jon Aguilar. Few conversations and topics have resonated with me as much as this one. Jon is an amazing person who represents the best of us and what it means to evolve as a person. He posted an article on the Mixed Mental Arts Group page about the demoralization of Western Culture on people and the resulting psycho-spiritual crisis. There’s a link to the article here. Beyond the typical rhetoric of complaining about these things and simply whining about things that are wrong Jon has dedicated his life to doing something about it. He’s found that in discovering passion, purpose and prosperity in his profession of dry stone and dedication to bringing the benefits of it to his fellow man he and those around him are flourishing. IKIGAI is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being” and is the basis for what he does.
The artwork for this episode is not simply a nice visual it is actually a project Jon and his team built. There is no mortar in the joints of the image you see above and every single piece is made to fit with the others. It’s a modern day masterpiece of not only art but function. Find numerous pictures of Jon’s work now and keeping up with his company’s efforts HERE on Instagram.
Jon is the husband of Jenni Aguilar who we had on our podcast a few weeks ago discussing our primal brain.
