Every One of Us Is Shaping Bitcoin in Our Own Ways
This week's newsletter is a double stack. Mainly because Joël forgot to send the last one. Have fun reading how all of us can contribute to Bitcoin in our own fashion!
Hello, fellow rabbit hole dwellers!
First off, sorry for not sending a newsletter last week. Joël was in the middle of traveling home from El Salvador and forgot to format the newsletter. Sorry, on that note.
Enjoy, and if you have any suggestions, questions, or generally want to reach out, please reply to this email.
The Latest Rabbit Hole Stories Episodes With Oskar the Wise Rabbit and Rob Brinded
We had two great guests in the last two weeks. Oskar, a climate and Bitcoin activist told us about his rabbit hole story. One which sparked his interest in the sustainable side of things with the mining industry and how it will help solve some of the climate topics.
There was also a small debate in the middle, where we asked Oskar some critical questions about the climate hypocrisy you often read and hear about from various political parties. Joël couldn’t hold back and had to ask about the questionable financiers of various climate activists. Oskar answered the questions well and emerged as a great debate partner.
The other episode was with Rob, a former health and performance coach for Chelsea FC. He realized there were more treatment possibilities during his time there than the traditional medical system taught us.
Rob left his job and committed the next years to discover how he could develop a system that would allow almost instant diagnostics and one where people could solve their problems with simple techniques. During this time of trial and error, Rob developed the Mind OS system.
Both episodes were unique on their own terms but showed that anyone can help out. Either by taking action and coming up with a new system. Or by taking part in the movement they so care about, organizing events, and standing up for what they believe in.
We sometimes feel left out, not a part of society, or just the weird people out there who shout from the rooftops how fucked up the world is. This can be quite gruesome and not fun, mostly because you feel like you don’t make an impact.
These two episodes showed us that every action matters and that we can influence and shape our social or inner circles more than we believe. Therefore, don’t stop. If you have something to say, say it! Someone will listen.
Finding Balance: Inward Reflection and Outward Action
We found ourselves in thought and action rabbit holes in our recent episodes. Speaking with Rob Brinded, a former health and performance coach for Chelsea FC, and Oskar the Wise Rabbit, a young climate and Bitcoin activist, has reinforced a crucial balance in our approach to life and activism.
Rob's journey from Chelsea FC to developing the Mind OS system highlights the importance of looking inward. It's a reminder that our external endeavors are deeply intertwined with our internal state. His pursuit of alternative treatment methods and the emphasis on instant diagnostics speak volumes about the power of introspection and self-awareness. It underscores the idea that true personal or societal change begins within. Our mental and physical well-being are not just personal concerns but are the bedrock upon which we build our capacity to enact change.
On the other hand, Oskar's story represents the outward expression of our convictions. As a young activist, Oskar's involvement in climate and Bitcoin advocacy exemplifies the vitality of the younger generation in shaping our future. His willingness to take to the streets, engage in debates, and challenge traditional financial institutions is inspiring. It illustrates that activism is not just about speaking out; it's about embodying the change we wish to see in the world.
Both paths – Rob's inward-looking journey towards self-awareness and Oskar's outward-facing activism – are essential. They are two sides of the same coin. As we navigate our complex world, it's crucial to maintain this balance. While we look inward to understand ourselves and nurture our mental health, we must also look outward to take action, stand up for our beliefs, and participate actively in the world around us.
This synergy of introspection and action is what will drive meaningful change. As we continue to share stories and insights through our podcast, let's remember the value of both perspectives. It's not just about being self-aware or about being an activist; it's about being both. In doing so, we can move through the world more effectively, contributing to society in personally fulfilling and socially impactful ways.
