The Inner Matrix
The idea for The Inner Matrix came to Joey quite organically. It all started when he was a bit younger, in his late teens and early twenties. He was a bit of an out-of-control teenager who didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life. At some point, he realized that if he continued to live the way he was, there was a good chance that he would not be alive the following year.
He remembers thinking he was put on this Earth to live for something more. He realized that he wanted to know what peace and fulfillment looked like. He met a mentor and studied ancient wisdom traditions in temples in India, Thailand, and Japan. This helped him find the tools and training systems to manage emotions.
Back in the day, before we had all the science and technology helping us measure the human body’s inner workings, people could only rely on their perception of what made them feel good. If a particular type of breath made you feel good and gave you more energy, you were inclined to perform that breath more, for example.
So, trial and error were the only means of improving the human condition for generations, with wisdom getting passed on and repeated. The fundamental understanding of nervous-system management is an aspect of traditional wisdom that carries incredible value.
Owning Who You Are
Another lesson to be learned from ancient wisdom tradition is that who you are, not what you do, produces the outcomes and results in your life. What positions you to succeed in any aspect of life is what you bring to the table as yourself.
If you bring frustration, agitation, overwhelm, etc., into your romantic relationship, you will break that relationship down, not to mention induce stress on your own body. It all boils down to owning who you are in any relationship and understanding how you can align with the vibrant, loving, connected relationship you aspire to.
