    Default Bahkti tears

    This is a side to Joe Rogan that not many will have seen before.

    Joe was sharing a story with Jordan Peterson about a family who against all odds, were able to triumph. It was more than just the story though that I found moving.

    Joe talks about how he doesn't cry tears of sorrow very often but he often cry tears of happiness when another overcomes adversity.

    These might be described as Bahkti tears, tears of joyfulness.

    When we wish someone well and we are witness to someone who has been able to overcome adversity and we celebrate it, it can bring us blissful tears. This tells me a lot about who Joe really is.

    Joe said, I like seeing the human spirit manifest in spectacular ways.

    Me too Joe, me too...

    I think it was Gracy who mentioned Joe as a good example of an integrated male, and I think he's a good example too. Not at all afraid to shed some tears publicly. A lesser man would be too uptight.

    It's Joe's strength that allows him to show this type of emotion, not his weakness...which is what separates him from someone who is maudlin and silly. His integration allows him to express his softer side as an adjunct to his harder sides, not in place of it. It's a good healthy thing and it's good for other men to see

    Another way to get a look at who Joe Rogan is, is by looking at the people he has interviewed. Also, watch an earlier interview and a recent one and although he is still the same person, he has gathered a lot of knowledge through his interviews and it peaks out through his emotions.

    Why yes! He is an absolute beacon of light for other men when he expresses himself this way. Thankfully, he has a very large male audience.
    I was completely inspired by what he had to share and I really looking forward to seeing his future interviews and what direction he heads in now that he is free of the constraits of youtube.

    Absolutely. I can see that there has been a shift in consciousness. I would love to be in the same room with him one day, just to talk to him and hear his thoughts on a few things. It would be so much fun.

    The ending scene in “The Pursuit of Happyness” always made me cry. Now I know what to call those tears!

    Yes, the desire to serve Love's higher plan...

    Quote Bhakti Tears

    Even in my deep faith, I find tears arising more than usual. I cry for the suffering, for those who have died alone, for the grieving, for the children, for what once was, and for the unknown path that lies ahead...

    For me, these are “Bhakti Tears”. Amidst the sadness, is also hope, devotion, and my heart’s deepest desire to behold and serve Love’s higher plan, even amidst the pain and grief...

    Allowing the interplay between my emotion and devotion is a constant reminder that my vulnerability is also my strength...

    Rather than seeing my tears as a measure of my despair, I instead see them as a sign of how much I care. 🙌🏽❤️🌈
