Yeah I was surprised when I saw that part.

On the other hand, it's like, say you have a few vices...who doesn't? If you're overall a positive person with a good attitude I think Erik would pick up on that and have no problem rolling with you. Maybe I'm wrong on that, and if you smoked a joint once a month or went to a bar one night a week he would ask you, or pick up on it, and turn you down?

Definitely an interesting cat.

He sounds like a wacko with that negative energy and sage talk. I respect his skills, but jeez, what a loon.

He says that he used to roll with everybody and would have these awful nightmares. He saw his shaman, or someone like that, and they told him the negative energy of certain people was rubbing off onto him (literally) because of the close contact involved in rolling. He says he looks into people's eyes and "feels" their auras and will not roll with people he gets a bad vibe from. Bad vibes could come from activities like drug use, drinking, chasing women, etc. He also said he prays and meditates every day, and will cleanse spots all around his house with sage while saying certain prayers. He also "cleanses" his dog in the same fashion.

He goes into other stuff about the most important things above your passion in life are where you go when you die and your family. He said "if the dojo is your church then when you die, I guess you'll just stay in the dojo" or something to that effect.

Very interesting interview.

Thanks, that is very interesting, and doesn't seem COMPLETELY nuts to me. I've recently gotten away from some people in my life because of the negative things they do that I don't want to be associated with, and of course I don't want to roll with people I don't like. Them causing bad dreams is kind of odd though...
