I gave this one 13 claps because, well, Venus went retrograde on the 13th, precisely 5/13/2020 and those numbers add up to 13 and well, 13 represents the Divine Feminine, which our lovely Venus is also a big part of, right?

Anyway, I enjoyed this via podcast on what is becoming my “weekend date with Rick and Amanda,” where I take in the Beauty of Mother Nature via bike rides on riverside paths in this beautiful land of Japan where I now make my home.

Rick’s wisdom and breadth of knowledge is always such an amazing thing to behold; I feel like I am a student listening to a master weave a narrative that is the result of a uniquely lived life but, perhaps paradoxically, the wisdom I hear just confirms the things I am coming to know. Even more, one of the most confirming aspects of listening to Rick is when I go out and flash on an insight from a direct experience with Mother Nature and then, a few days later, Rick will say something to reinforce that insight. Such experiences give me the “intellectual feels”!

Okay, just wanted to share how happy I am that Rick has agreed to these weekly chats. I’ll be listening so long as you two continue to “go steady!”
