It’s your natural state.
You’re an explorer.
Don’t realize it fully?
Maybe you’ve spent too much time living like a corpse, mouldering around in graves and mausoleums with other corpses.
My friend Claude (author of Just Because Club and the Original Handbook for the Recently Deceased) and I were talking about this the other day.
Someone said, “when you were a sailor, sometimes you wouldn’t expect to get back home for years at a time.”
Claude said, “For an explorer, there is no ‘back home,’ there’s only the next place.”
That’s how life works–whether you trap yourself in a mausoleum for most of it or not.
Things always change.
Who you were yesterday is gone.
While many get scared back into the tomb by this realization–some know how to embrace it.
Some know that life consists of a constant, neverending exploration.
The realization of life as constantly unfolding and changing fills these adventurers’ sails with endless joy and motivation.
They wake up every morning feeling like Christmas and all the moments of the day are a pile of wrapped presents waiting for them under the tree.
And it really feels that way.
Get a present for yourself that gives you the training to embrace your own unending exploration:
The lesson goes like this:
Those who don’t unleash and master the imagination will suffer unto death.
And die you will anyways, so cut out the suffering.
Like one of the guys at last year’s U.K. Workshop.
He saw that the only way other people’s actions could hurt him was in his own mind.
He saw that his imagination rules and guides everything he experiences.
He witnessed how it governs all his moods and emotions, perfectly, at all times.
He faced down his worst fears and gave up his false suffering.
And a deep, abiding happiness emerged.
No, not a fleeting joy based on circumstances.
A happiness for having circumstances at all.
Now’s always your chance:
Tonight, we hear from Taylor Remigi.
He’s been on board the Command Z and Art of NGF Transcendence Spaceship for awhile now.
By that I mean he’s attended workshops, taken trainings, stuck with the NGF Daily and Weekly trainings, and started putting on some mini-workshops of his own.
Taylor and I got to talking about what brings people to the Art of NGF Victim to Adventurer Training, and Radical Undoing.
He realized that he still had the original letter he wrote about the pains and problems he was facing in his life.
So instead of keeping it to ourselves, we both realized the transformation was so powerful, and so key to understanding what happens when you begin this work, that we went ahead and pressed record.
What you get is the live, raw experiences of a guy who put everything on the line for a more authentic life, and found it–no matter what circumstances come his way.
That’s the essence of the Art of NGF, and what’s possible for you, too.
See you at the Art of NGF UK Workshop.
Tonight’s entertainments include a joyful jaunt into the world of video game creation.
Particularly the world of one video game creator: Amir Rajan.
Our esteemed guest created these phenomenal iOS games:
Garrett and Amir go deep into the world of game development, the adventurous nature of coding a game for public consumption, and where the transcendence from victim to adventurer relates to his own journey.
Amir created A Dark Room in his spare time. Check it out if you haven’t. It’s a minimalist masterpiece of a game, with deep content and many surprises.
The game was an accidental viral success, which led Amir to write his book: Surviving the App Store. (Listeners to the show get a free copy, as per instructions on the episode. As of 5.31.17, the link is down. Amir says it’ll be back up within a month of this date.)
Join us for a deep dance into the mind of a brilliant game creator, and the secrets behind how he did it, and what it’s like from the inside.
Fear not, young adventurer, we also cover all our favorite childhood video games, and explore the overlap between gaming and everyday reality.

And leave us an honest review in iTunes.
It’s an honor to host the founders of Samadhi Tank Company, and the godfather and godmother of the world of Floatation (sometimes called sensory deprivation tanks) Tanks.
The pair were longtime friends and students of psychedelic warrior and scientist John C. Lilly.
On this episode of the Art of NGF, Lee and Glenn go into detail on the elements of living a highly satisfying life.
