DBR - 16 may 2019 - How does your consciousness work?

May 18th, 2019

Welcome to Disgruntled Buddhist Radio. 


In season 1 we talked about becoming the watcher of your thoughts, to observe the activity of your inner dialog.


In this season the watcher becomes the gardener tending the seeds in the field of your consciousness. Your tool is mindfulness and you maintain your tool with a daily practice on the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eight-Fold Path. Your classroom is the breath in the present moment. 


In this episode we review “Store Consciousness” and describe in more detail the first 3 verses of the 50 Verses on the nature of consciousness. 


We are taking a high-level look at the ideas in the teaching using the book “Understanding our Mind” by Thich Nhat Hanh.


Also, the disgruntled buddhist returns in the last 10 minutes of the show as we talk/rant about the some of the seeds being worked in our cultural /political system right now. 



Thank you for listening

DBR - 10 may 2019 - Intro to The 50 verses on the nature of consciousness

May 10th, 2019

Hello All, 

 In this episode I give an introduction to some concepts and teachings about the nature of our consciousness. I use the book "Understanding our Mind" by Thich Nhat Hanh


The basic concept is that everything you experience, believe, or act on is a seed in consciousness, and that by nurturing the good seeds will manifest as good qualities in your life.


What is "Store Consciousness" and how does it work? I offer I high level explain from the book and introduce the initial verses. 


Verse One

Mind is a field in which every kind of seed is sown.

This mind-field can also be called "all the seeds" 

Verse Two

In us are infinite variety of seeds 

Seeds of samsara, nirvana, delusion and enlightenment,

seeds of suffering and happiness,

seeds of perceptions, names and words

Verse Three 

Seeds that manifest as body and mind,

as realms of being, stages and worlds,

are all stored in our consciousness. That is why we call it "store." 


Please join me, EricThomas, and my co-host SonyaLee for a look into this awesome teaching. 

Peace EricThomas & SonyaLee

DBR - 3 may 2019 - Science, Faith & Morality

May 3rd, 2019

Welcome to Disgruntled Buddhist Radio I'm your host EricThomas with co-host SonyaLee. 


I share the story of Trees as my Tonglen Masters ... the harmony of science & faith.

We also talk about whether our society is ready to answer the questions around Genetic Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and the changing work force. 


Do we have the moral compass and compassion to move forward as a species? 


We also wonder about the future evolution of the human species and ask where should we draw the line on modification of the human genome.


Should we / will we use genetic engineering to modify humans for living on Mars, or other planets? Would this constitute a new species of human being? 


Thank you for listening

Peace EricThomas & SonyaLee 

Astrology & Sh*t with SonyaLee - Welcome to my new show

April 28th, 2019

Hello and welcome to "Astrology & sh*t with SonyaLee." Astrology has always fascinated me and I've studied my own chart for 25 years, and now I want to share what I've learned with you.


We are part of a living Universe and as many have known for centuries the planets and their alignments have an influence on our lives.  


Each week I'll wade through current events, Astrological transits and all the other sh*t that is shifting around us now, visible and invisible, subtle and overt, real and unreal...


It may give you a different perspective on your current understanding, or open the door to a new level of insight.


Please join me on "Astrology and sh*t with SonyaLee" on

Disgruntled Buddhist Radio - Forgiveness & Sacred Contract

April 20th, 2019

I'm EricThomas and welcome to Disgruntled Buddhist Radio.

Who are your biggest teachers? Who in your life gave you a burden you need to release? What are the soul level contracts we make with others so we may learn about ourselves and others? Who is YOUR baby angel? 

"I've heard it said that forgiveness is to hold something with mercy that was once held in judgement. This describes my relationship with my father perfectly."
