When lauded investment guru and former NASDAQ chairman Bernie Madoff was accused and eventually convicted of operating one of the largest Ponzi schemes in history, the news made headlines. For most people, it was simply another story in the media.
From the beginning, Geneen Roth was told she was too sensitive, too emotional, too curious, too demanding,too intense, and too big. Like most women who struggle with their weight, she believed that if she could resolve what seemed to be the source of her self-hatred she would be thin, happy, and free. Yet it was only when Geneen stopped trying to change herself - that she was at last able to feel at home in her mind, body, and life. This Messy Magnificent Life shares the wisdom of giving up what she calls the Me Project and finding the freedom, peace,and power that await us just beyond it. The way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive.

J: You are listening to the Vibrant Happy Women podcast, episode number A mile-long to-do list can have us leaping from our beds and facing the day each morning with little thoughts for ourselves or for our bodies. But what happens when we show up on our own 2 feet with complete presence and groundedness?
Stay tuned. Intro: Welcome to the Vibrant Happy Woman podcast, stories of vibrant woman living happy lives. And now, your host, Jen Riday. J: Hey, welcome back to Vibrant Happy Woman. I'm Jen Riday and I'm the host of this fun podcast where I get to interview the most amazing women every week, and today is no exception. I'll be talking to Geneen Roth all about showing up in your own skin in a way that you can adore your body, adore your life, adore your family, and it's really all about deep, mindfully presence.
She has a really unique take on it, I can't wait for you to listen. I want to remind you that last week, I talked to Kristin Neff all about self-compassion.
That was one of my all-time favorite interviews because self-compassion has been critical for me getting through some hard times with 2 of my teens and being able to show them deep love, even when I don't approve of their choices. Also, I want to let you know, on Thursday, I'll be back with a happy bit and I'll be sharing an update on what's happening with my 2 teens and how that's going.
I can't wait to tell you because it's going well. Seeing a new episode has been downloaded always adds a smile to my face. I know that I will always feel good after listening to whatever subject matter you were talking about and I especially love how you allow us to see your imperfections.
Keep up the good work and I look forward to the next episode. And for everyone else, if you want to leave a review of the week, just to go to jenriday. Well, I don't know about you but I'm really excited to learn about deep, mindful presence, what that feels like; I can imagine it feels amazing.
Let's jump in. She has been teaching groundbreaking workshops inretreats for over 30 years and has appeared on numerous national shows including the Oprah Winfrey Show, , The Today Show, Good Morning America, and The View.
Wow, Geneen, that's quite the biography so far. I mean, I love that, and all those different books. So let's start of the show with your favorite quote, if you can narrow that down. G: Oh, my favorite quote. So if you want to find out about your core beliefs, if you want to find out about what's driving you, then you can look at one thing go all the way with that.
J: So if someone is always rushing, I identify with that one, which is why I'm going to ask …. J: … rushing onto the next bite, what does that really mean? How do you fix it? The only thing that actually leads the transformation is doing something differently. And it doing… just picking one little thing. So let's just say rushing, let's just take for instance, because many, many people rush; you're not the only one. So another way of saying that, if you really want to look at the deepest possible meaning of that and I know most people don't, but I do , you're trying to get this thing you are doing away.
Tomorrow never comes because when tomorrow comes, which is… I'm using synonymously with the next moment, then tomorrow is only today. Nobody has ever been to tomorrow. G: And then if we are constantly rushing through all of the things we're doing today to get to a moment that never comes, we end up utterly missing our lives and sort of walking through our lives like ghosts because we're really not there.
So it's sobering to realize that, and might be a little uncomfortable, but you know what? Rushing is uncomfortable. I was a profound rusher and it's been hard to stop that. It's a difficult pattern to break. And so how do you break it? G: And it's a great time to do it during a meal. Because oftentimes and that's why eating and food is such a fabulous doorway , what happens is that people and this is what happened at the eating meditation that I taught over the weekend … people have a bite in their mouths, and before they can finish that, their fork has… or spoon has picked up the next bite and it's mid-way in there.
So that way, nobody ever feels satisfied because you don't let yourself get filled up either literally or figuratively with the amount of fabulousness or nourishment or abundance you already have. J: Wow, so many nuggets of wisdom there. And mindfulness is so popular right now, but I feel like as a society, we still haven't really grasped it.
I think you would agree. G: I would definitely agree with that. I… I think that mindfulness sounds good. G: And I think that's very sobering. At least it was for me because the desire is there but then you've got to put it into practice somehow. And so like, you know, if you decide for instance, you're going to do that with food, with your relationship with food, then you have to do it with your relationship with food.
Once a day, 3 bites, once a day and you'll get the experience. Because the only way to change is the signal to yourself and to your brain that something else is possible. J: So you wrote many, many books; when we read that bio, there were so many great books. How did you realize all of those things connect so well?
G: You know, they're all about the same thing, which is our experience of being alive; what it's like to live inside our own skin and what we could do to stop the constant low level and anxiety and discontent, so they're all about that.
Some of them focus much more on the relationship with food and because of that, for me, was my main entree or doorway or gateway however you want to say that into understanding that it wasn't really about food, it was about the self I was bringing to food. It was about why I chose the foods I ate, why I chose to eat the way I did.
And a lot of, for me, was about the self-loathing that I had, the ongoing judgment I had about myself that expressed itself through my relationship with food.
And so once I really healed that and alleviated, stopped the suffering, got to my natural way around food and weight and body, I realized that what had been driving me or what was at the core of it were some basic beliefs…. I wasn't loveable. No matter what I did, it wasn't good enough.
I had to achieve in order to take up space on this Earth. G: … that we keep playing over and over, like playing the same record over and over and over again. And they're triggers and they are put in place most likely at an early age from our conditioning, from our family, from what we've internalized, from what we've learned; from the people we grew up with, because theirs were put in place by the people they grew up with and so on. As well as the culture we live in; we live in a rather insane culture.
What's considered normal these days, I would consider insane. Having people walk around, bumping into other people because they were looking down at their phone all the time, not the making contact, being utterly engrossed in this device and not focusing on the connections that could actually nourish them.
This is what I see a lot…. G: … going on. And this emphasis on achieving and doing; and there's nothing wrong with that. You know, on one level, we really do all need to do that. There is not one other person like us in the entire world. So that's really important too, and then being comfortable in our own skin is also really important; so I worked on both those levels.
And as the food issue was got cleared up for me, I started looking at the… the things that had been driving it and also drove, you know, what happened when I woke up in the morning and I didn't like this or low level anxiety and discontent that I just mentioned. I started wanting to use many of the tools that I used with food to deal with the core issues of my life. Let's say someone that's listening to us having this conversation and they're wondering where to start, if you had to narrow it down to 3 or 4 steps… Laughs.
J: If you could do it, what would it look like, this idea of, you know, fixing the food issues, but then taking it further? G: You know, at the back of my book, just in case somebody can't take all this in as we're talking, because it's sometimes it's hard to take it all in and listening, there's a set of touchstones. And those are the touchstones that I would recommend, and I'll go through some of them, 3 or 4 of them with you now.
G: The first one is, standing in your own two 2. I'm too thin. My thighs, the cellulite, my chin, my face, my skin. All of those questions come from actually being in living in your body. So the first step is standing in your own 2 shoes, owning the space you've been giving; which is your body. Your body is a piece of the universe you have been given. G: It's yours. And how do you do that? You… very simply, you become aware of your feet touching the ground.
You feel your butt; if you're sitting in a chair, you feel your butt in your chair. You wiggle your arms, you remember you have hands. Most of us feel like we exist from the neck up and we don't come down into these loyal, steadfast companions that are our bodies that have kept our heads around for a long time without getting a lot of kindness.
So one thing is, show up, own your body, stand in your own 2 shoes, show it some kindness. When it's tired, rest. When it's hungry, eat. G: When it's thirsty, drink. And all throughout the day, maybe 5 times a day, take 1 conscious breath.

In Review: Women, Food and God Book Summary
Он приближался к двери. - Черт его дери! - почти беззвучно выругалась Сьюзан, оценивая расстояние до своего места и понимая, что не успеет до него добежать. Хейл был уже слишком близко. Она метнулась к буфету в тот момент, когда дверь со звуковым сигналом открылась, и, остановившись у холодильника, рванула на себя дверцу. Стеклянный графин на верхней полке угрожающе подпрыгнул и звонко опустился на место. - Проголодалась? - спросил Хейл, подходя к. Голос его звучал спокойно и чуточку игриво.
Только в прошлом месяце благодаря ТРАНСТЕКСТУ удалось предотвратить одну из самых изощренных террористических акций, с которыми приходилось сталкиваться агентству. Некая антиправительственная организация разработала план под кодовым названием Шервудский лес. Его целью была Нью-Йоркская фондовая биржа, а замыслом - перераспределение богатства.
Теперь пользователь мог посылать конфиденциальные сообщения: ведь если даже его послание перехватывалось, расшифровать его могли лишь те, кто знал ключ-пароль. АНБ сразу же осознало, что возникла кризисная ситуация. Коды, с которыми столкнулось агентство, больше не были шифрами, что разгадывают с помощью карандаша и листка бумаги в клетку, - теперь это были компьютеризированные функции запутывания, основанные на теории хаоса и использующие множественные символические алфавиты, чтобы преобразовать сообщение в абсолютно хаотичный набор знаков. Сначала используемые пароли были довольно короткими, что давало возможность компьютерам АНБ их угадывать. Если искомый пароль содержал десять знаков, то компьютер программировался так, чтобы перебирать все комбинации от 0000000000 до 9999999999, и рано или поздно находил нужное сочетание цифр.
Мы просто исполнили его последнюю волю. Беккер смягчился. В конце концов, Росио права, он сам, наверное, поступил бы точно так. - А потом вы отдали кольцо какой-то девушке.
