#2 Chris Galliano on Meditation, The Military, True Friendships, New Orleans and Dolphins in Hawaii
For this episode of Life On Earth, Nathalie is joined by the fascinating Chris Galliano. Chris tells us the story of how he ended up joining the military and talks about his time spent there, including working with dolphins who can find mines underwater. We hear about Chris’s time in Iraq and why he thinks it’s unlikely something like that will happen again. Nathalie shares her perspective on what it’s like to have a friend in the military and wondering if they’ll ever return home.
Getting into some deeper conversation, Nathalie and Chris talk about friends and family, religion, beliefs, life and death. The two share their love for New Orleans, its history, and the many events that take place there.
We hear about the benefits of meditation and stopping illnesses before they reach the physical body. Nathalie issues a simple challenge to smile at others with kindness and find something you love about them. Everything else fades away, leaving only peace and joy. The show concludes with talk about how we distract our minds with things like celebrity gossip and reality TV, how people are growing tired of it, and the benefits of focusing on something bigger.
