A Young & Restless Life

Ultimately, I believe that underneath it all, underneath a lot of cultivated superficial assumptions based on nothing meaningful whatsoever, most of us have a great deal in common. 

Eric BraedenI’ll Be Damned

Victor

When you’ve played one of the most iconic roles in the history of daytime television for nearly 40 years you and your character have an effect on millions of viewers every day.

What you do with that privilege defines you and that never escapes the mind of Eric Braeden. Known world-wide as Victor Newman on The Young and the Restless he realizes that responsibility.

Watch our entire conversation about his deeply moving memoir, I’ll Be Damned by clicking the video above or Click here for times and channels in your area to view on your favorite PBS station

Maybe as long as there are human beings, there will be conflict, but what a shame for us to expect so little of ourselves and not hold ourselves to a higher standard.

-Eric Braeden-

Whether you are already a major fan of Eric’s, or never saw a single soap opera, when you meet him he will surely steal your heart.

Have a great week,

Barry

Body over Mind

Your body is always ready to give you the most reliable information, indicate the best way to go, and reveal the best decision to make.

Steve SisgoldWhole Body Intelligence

We all know that the mind has a powerful influence on our physical well being, but what we rarely consider is how our body is the “first responder” to our emotional health and supplies us with knowledge that is often missed by our mind alone.

Evolution itself defines why this is true. The cells in our body have been around millions of years longer than the cells of our frontal lobe. In turn, they contain valuable wisdom even beyond our mind’s grasp.

il_570xN.495336109_5g49

This week, airing on most of our stations, is my conversation with Steve Sisgold about his book Whole Body Intelligence. Our discussion sheds a new perspective on our body’s wisdom. As Steve writes:

The brain can take cues from body movements… We can use our bodies to help us think.

When you experience Steve on the show you will see how his own body language, combined with his deep insights, automatically puts one at ease on a physical and emotional level.

If you sometimes think it is all in your head, tune in to your body and this week’s episode,

The Road to Happiness

All of life’s unhappiness can be found in the gap between who we think we should be and who we actually are. Perfectionism creates the gap. Guilt widens it.

Linda GrayThe Road to Happiness

WB0213LindaGrayLR1

The path to a happier life is often one with twists and turns on a gravely road with pot holes and speed bumps. But every once in a while you may be lucky enough to find a patch of road freshly paved and smooth as silk.

That freshly paved route was experienced by all of us who had the privilege of meeting Linda Gray recently on the set of our show and this week you too will enjoy the ride.

Larry Hagman (as John Ross 'J.R.' Ewing, Jr

Linda is known world-wide as Sue Ellen, the wife of J.R. Ewing, on one of the most watched shows in history, Dallas. However, as we all soon learned, this most elegant and charming woman is filled with grace, gratitude and love and her aura’s warmth permeated the studio.

On the road to happiness, authenticity is the only measure of success.

My conversation with Linda, that airs on most of our PBS stations this week, is about her book The Road to Happiness. Now, one may automatically think; “Sure it’s easy being happy if you’re the beautiful and successful Linda Gray,” but that has nothing to do with true happiness and Linda knows it from the inside out.

It’s taken me decades to appreciate sorrow, annoyance, and disappointment as life affirming.

arton78803

No doubt we will continue to experience that gravely pot hole filled road on the journey of life but as Linda reminds us:

There is always a lesson, if you have the patience and will to figure it out.

Hope your New Year is starting off right and may it be filled with patience,

Barry

A New Beginning – Happy New Year!

Beginnings often frighten us because they seem like lonely voyages into the unknown…  This is not the case… A beginning is ultimately an invitation to open toward the gifts and growth that are stored up for us.

John O’DonohueTo Bless the Space Between Us

I find the New Year filled with mixed blessings. We feel the time rushing by but also a sense of renewal.

new-year-eve-big-ben-golden-fire-works

A while back I did an episode with Dr. Gerald Schroeder a renowned physicist who offers theological insights into the world of science.

Just CLICK HERE or the play button below to see our entire conversation.

His sense of wonder and awe are contagious and as we start the New Year I want all to experience the same joy that Professor Schroeder expresses about our universe.

May the coming New Year bring all my readers, viewers, friends and family good health, loads of happiness and fulfilled desires!

Happy New Year,

Barry

In the Heart of the Sea

“How does one come to know the unknowable?”

From: In the Heart of the Sea

maxresdefault-4

The above quote that begins Ron Howard’s latest film, In the Heart of the Sea, also begins my conversation with him on this week’s Between the Lines.

Ron is one of the most beloved and talented directors. From his powerful films like Apollo 13 to his academy award winning masterpiece A Beautiful Mind, he has delighted audiences world-wide with his deft touch of combining heart, soul, narrative and action into a seamless portrait that touches us on a visceral level.

ronhoward-1600x900-c-default

In the Heart of the Sea he does it again. Our discussion revolves around the philosophical, emotional and sociological underpinnings that drive the film and its characters.

At its core it is a story of survival, but it is layered with questions ranging from what is moral to what is courage while also delving into the malleability of the human heart and spirit.

heart_a

The film is primarily based on Nathan Philbrick’s award winning book, by the same name, about the true story of the tragic sinking of the whaling ship the Essex. Ron adds additional source material and weaves in the story of Herman Melville who wrote the fictional version of the event Moby Dick. 

Enjoy the conversation with one of Hollywood’s true gentlemen and iconic directors and then treat yourself to an immersive film experience.

Happy Thanksgiving with or without the Stress

It is the belief that stress is harmful that is harmful and not the stress.

– Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D –

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. A day dedicated to gratitude and the good feelings that come from it when shared with friends and family.

Holidays, sometimes along with the joy, also can come with a sizable dose of stress. The reasons vary and each person has their own stresses and deals with them accordingly.

But at this time of the year, and with Christmas and Chanukah close behind, thinking of stress in a new light can make all the difference between enjoying the holidays or dreading them.

istock_end-of-the-rope1

Kelly McGonigal, a brilliant psychologist and professor at Stanford, is shaking up the world about preconceived notions of stress. With her revolutionary book, The Upside of Stress, she blows away all myths about stress and shows why it is actually good for you and how you can master it.

When our conversation first aired it generated some of the most positive comments from viewers and many wished they could share the episode with others.

Well, here’s my Thanksgiving gift to you all so you can now share Kelly’s wisdom and insights with friends and family who might be feeling more stress than joy.

Just click on the EPISODE below to see it in its entirety and share it with all who it may provide solace on this joyous of holidays.

Enjoy the show and a Happy Thanksgiving to all,

Barry
