  • Nic drinks from a juice-box (apparently almond milk, if anyone was wondering)
  • The “just world” theory; cosmic roulette wheel?
  • Mortality, reflections on death, suicide
  • TedTalk about how the world is actually getting better if you look at levels of war decreasing, disease decreasing, science improving quality of life, etc.
  • Karmic retribution, soul lessons, enlightenment and the cycle of suffering
  • Competing theories on what the human experience is; life is a gift, a celebration
  • How to find balance in the experience of being human when some days are so hard
  • What Thomas has discovered in the last couple of years that helps ease suffering and brings freedom from negative thought patterns and spirals
  • What’s your brain or body chemistry and does that interfere with making the “choice” to be happy?

  • You are way tougher than you give yourself credit for
