Don't limit the IS.

In this episode Mac & Stu take a walk on the wild side! Many of their manifesto points speak to the “mystical”, and the episodes are constantly sprinkled with “the stardust”. This week they're going to turn the fire hose on you. They even drug out the couch and initiated a therapy session. In fact, come over here roguers, lay down right here, and,

1. Smile. 2. Laugh. 3. Cry.

“Namaste, all of you beautifully, exotic cocktails.” Shout out to our new Brazilian, Colombian, and Indian roguers!

Manifesto points in this episode:

  • Wize realizes that the greatest sin is to limit the IS. Don't.
  • Expand your expectations.
  • Cultivate poise. Everyone will wonder what planet you are from.
  • Together is better.

 The Setup: “Wise realizes that the greatest sin is to limit the IS. Don’t."

“But once in a while there’s a great dynamite-burst of flying glass and brick and splinters through the front wall and somebody stalks over the rubble, seizes me by the throat and gently says, ‘I will not let you go until you set me, in words, on paper.’”

Another great perspective on our focus in this episode: "Everything is spiritual", by Rob Bell


“Spiritual but not religious” but "The IS" is still: 

God, Spirit, Allah, One Power, Dao, Chi, Brahman, God Particle…

We experience, and to an extent limit God, to the degree that we understand and apply the power.·        

It's like a muscle car with 450+ hp. Use it or lose it.

It’s a flow. We control it.

Life spiritualized is life simplified. It's the grid. The humility. The peace.

Includes both faith and religion, but doesn’t have to. ·        

Can’t limit the IS’s essence, but WE can limit its effectiveness.


In all of these remember that we can choose to limit the IS in them and go under our own abilities, or not.

  • You’re always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past.         
  • The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, “I’ve got responsibilities.”
  • Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they’re yours.
  • Live never to be ashamed if anything you do or say is published around the world-even if what is published is not true.
  • The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.
  • Imagine the universe beautiful and just and perfect. Then be sure of one thing: the IS has imagined it quite a bit better than you.
  • Here is a test to find whether your mission on earth is finished: If you’re alive, it isn’t.

The WizeGuys
Going rogue in pursuit of wisdom.
A cosmic exhale—it’s what we all yearn for. Mac and Stu are a couple of WizeGuys with decades of experience in navigating the nuances of life as entrepreneurs, family men, coaches, mentors, facilitators, thought leaders, masters of relationship, and contemplative mystics. Join with them as they apply an eclectic approach to life, centered around the concept of cultivating wisdom. They will help you build discernment through the art of asking the “whys”, and by showing that going rogue is the only way to break free of the biases that keep us from doing it just a little bit better.

They realize that what got us here is not going to get us there. Take a journey with them where you’ll experience ah-ha moments stimulated by their conversation that’s filled with wit, candor, vulnerability, and always seasoned with right amount of the mysterious. We’re all exotic cocktails, and learning to celebrate our wonderful uniqueness as we build oneness is the perfect recipe for crafting a better world for everyone.

Mac is The Maverick and Stu is The Maestro. Blending those perspectives in an almost magical way to get after it and call it out will show you how together is better. They’ll use the events of the day to practically apply a roguish blend of modern perspective and timeless wisdom sagacity. Seeking clarity over certainty changes everything. You want some of that? Then relax, enjoy, and engage. Oh...and make sure that you strap in…
