Thank you all so much for supporting my channel! :)

The Diamond Net channel is named after the Buddhist story of the Hindu God, Indra, and his jeweled net that hangs in the sky. Indra's Diamond Net was meant as a metaphor to represent the paradoxically infinite and finite nature of reality, among other things. 

It is written that Indra's net stretches in an infinite amount of directions and goes on infinitely in each of those directions. It is also said that at the vortices of that net, there is a jewel. So, there are also an infinite amount of jewels in existence scattered along this infinite net. Also, each jewel reflects ALL of the other jewels in the net. So, in each jewel, there is an infinite number of jewels. So, it could be said that there is an infinite number of jewels on the net. Or it could also be said that there is only one jewel that reflects all other jewels. 

This is why I named my channel for this metaphor, because it is my goal to explore the many paradoxes of life and share my insights and experiences relative to them.

Either we can see ourselves as small beings within an infinite reality, or we can see ourselves as the single "container" for all of reality. There is no way to know for sure which is a more valid perspective. But there is a freedom and openness in the inability to know the mysterious nature of our own existence.

  • You can submit up to four questions per month for a chance to have them answered on the once-monthly Q&A videos. I will address as many as I can in the time allotted. The videos will be about 25 minutes long. You may indicate a preference for which question you would most like to have addressed, and I will take that into strong consideration. Ultimately, I will pick the questions that I feel like I can do the most justice to and that have the most universal relevance to the experience of being human. I reserve the right to decline any questions that I feel like I can't do justice by or are too off topic. 


  • You will be able to participate in an hour-long group chat session with me and the other patrons on Discord. This will happen once per month.

Be My Guinea Pig!
$32 or more per month 22 of 30 patrons
This tier gets ALL the rewards that the previous tiers get, as well as a one-on-one hour-long Skype session with me, each month!


To see the previous tiers rewards, you can look at the $10 tier.


But this tier is called "Be My Guinea Pig" because I'm considering training to be a spiritual life coach and becoming certified through the ICF. 


So, in order to know whether or not that's the right decision for me to make, and to see if I can provide insights off-the-cuff in a one-on-one setting, I am providing one-on-one sessions over Skype for ten patrons who sign up for this tier.


The sessions will happen once per month for an hour long duration. Your first session will be scheduled during the time slot of your choice. 


But all new patrons to this tier will be scheduled for a time slot after the third day of the next month over. So, if someone signs up in mid-August, their earliest session will be scheduled on or after September 3rd. 


Includes Discord rewards
Guinea Pig x2
$64 or more per month 5 of 10 patrons
This tier gets all the benefits of the above tiers. (See $10 tier for other benefits)


This is for all coaching clients who want 2 one-hour long Skype sessions per month, instead of just one. 


Those who sign up in September for this tier, will get start getting extra sessions in October. 


So, this tier is just like the "Guinea Pig" tier, only you'd get an extra coaching session per month.

Goals
$1,126 of $1,440 per month
Each day at work, I make $90 per day. So, if I want to cut down on my work by four days per week to focus on making videos, I'd need to make about $1440 a month from Patreon. I could also begin to invest more money into my channel to improve video quality. Once I reach this goal, I will do a two hour discord chat for all patrons.
