Sequel To "THE SECRET": The Ancient Code Hidden Within The Name of GOD (Law of Attraction)
from the beginning humanity has yearned to understand itself and its
relationship with its creator
in the days of Moses the Creator was known as the god of our forefathers or
the God of Abraham but there was no real name for the divine creative presence
then one day Moses who was just a poor Shepherd came upon a burning bush and
yet the fire did not consume the bush a voice spoke to him saying that he must
go unto the Pharaoh Rameses and demand the release of the Israelite slaves when
Moses asked who he should say sent him God said I am that I am for the first
time in history God had a name
armed with the power of God's name I am that I am
Moses produced some of the greatest miracles of the Bible
religious authorities recognizing the names awesome power declared that
uttering it was the highest blasphemy and so its strength was unrealized
misinterpreted and misunderstood
Moses never reached the promised land nor did the code that could unlock the
awesome power of God's name and sent all of humanity free
a code that could set humanity free it may seem impossible but Moses learned
something from God that day that changed the world in fact we still talk about
the miracles he produced when God gave Moses the name I am that I am there was
a simple code that went with it that unlocked the true power and meaning of
the words but then the name of God was banned and uttering it was sometimes
even punishable with death and so the code was lost a code is a system of
letters numbers or symbols that communicates information when converted
into normal language if the Moses code could unlock the power of God's name
today is it possible that we would have the power to create miracles just like
Moses did a 3500 years ago for the first time world renowned scholars
psychologists and philosophers will reveal the Moses code and how you can
harness its energy to change your life today we have the power to destroy the
world many times over but the Moses code unleashes a new kind of power one that
creates worlds and helps us fulfill our individual and collective destiny
incredibly the Moses code is far simpler than you may have imagined most of us
were taught that the name given to Moses was I am that I am that doesn't make
sense without the code in reality the name was
much simpler the Moses code is a common symbol something that we see and
experience every day the Moses code is a comma the Moses code
is a comma a comma I don't think so I am that I am
with a comma we're not saying that the Moses code is a comma we're saying the
Moses code needs a comma I am that comma I am the right name of God I am that I
am has intrigued me for many many years when I was a child I was told this by my
the adults around me I am that I am sayeth the Lord and I thought what the
world has at me I am that I am then one day a spiritual teacher said to me I
want you to change your life in 24 hours I want you to walk down the street for
60 minutes today and I want you to look at everything you see and I want you to
identify personally with that whatever it is the grass the flowers and other
people there I know the rich person driving by the chauffeur driven Cadillac
whatever it is just look at it and say I am that so I did that I walk down the
street I was with a friend I was saying in my mind I am that I am that I am that
whatever I looked at if I saw violence on a TV screen I am that if I saw
something beautiful happening in the park between a mother and a daughter I
am that I was a saying that's myself and allowing myself to identify with all
that is and the friend that I was with looked at me and said what are you doing
I said well I'm just saying I am that she said to me no you're not that you're
not that GRU I said oh no I am that you don't understand I really am that she
says no no you're you you're really mixed up in your head I said listen to
me I am that I am and then I said oh my god
did you hear what I just said I just said I am that I am the great name of
God I am that I am has been misunderstood from the beginning of time
it should be God's simple way God's very human way of saying an enormous truth I
am that I am this is the presence of God saying I am that everywhere you see you
see me people used to say God is in everything
really everything is in God God isn't just saying that I created that God is
this feel this presence that is everywhere in its fullness God is saying
I am that I am I am that person I am I am that experien every that that there
is many of us are still stuck at kind of a fifth-grade idea of God and so we we
have you know I am that I am is this man in the sky with a white flowing beard
and these big long flowing robes God made us in its image and we've been
trying to return the favor ever since meaning that we've made God in a man's
image and this I am that I am is out there ready to decide capriciously
whether to bless us or punish us for certain things now of course God can't
be jealous because God's the only game in town God is infinite omnipresent
omnipotent omniscient so there's nothing for God to be jealous of so that was a
primitive mindset projecting projecting human emotions onto forces they didn't
understand and we project that presence outward instead of having a relationship
with that present inwardly if God actually is each one of us then that
would mean that each one of us is an embodiment of God if that's true then
but with the possibilities be what could we create so we're walking to the wall
now we're gonna join thousands of other
people and circling the entire old city of Jerusalem but before we go there
we're going to explore three keys for unlocking the experience of being an
embodiment of God actually feeling in our bodies and we're going to use three
letters to do that g.o.d to help make it easier for us to remember when these
keys are applied to our lives then we'll be able to turn that simple comma into
one of the most transformative tools and history the first key for experiencing
ourselves as an embodiment of God is giving we've all heard that it's better
to give than to receive but is that really true and how can we give if we
don't have enough ourselves mystics some Saints like Saint Francis said that it
is in giving that we receive that just a nice spiritual slogan well you know it
really only comes down to one idea that's pretty far out that which we give
to others that which we give to the world we give to ourselves so whatever
one wants to experience in one's own life one chooses to give away now of
course the thought is how can I give it away if I don't have it because the
reason I'm trying to draw to me is because I don't have it but the very
giving it to another is what causes you to realize you've had it all along
there's a part of your brain called the in the Olympic brain that is not it's
not time oriented and it's not object oriented meaning it can't tell the
difference between itself and others and it has no sense of past present future
that timeless and object this place in my brain receives what I'm giving
because it doesn't know whether it's going out or whether it's coming in
whatever it is that we are creating for someone else our bodies experience it
first so when we offered the prayers or the thoughts feelings and emotions of a
piece for our loved one halfway around the world or between
nations we are experiencing that peace and that healing as well and then in
this way once again we see the example that giving truly is receiving so if you
criticize other people your brain doesn't know you're criticizing them it
receives it as if it's self directed if you care for and give to another person
that part of the brain doesn't know which way it's going so it always
receives the brain always receives as a gift to itself but it's given to another
person we don't even have physical contact anymore we don't look at each
other because of Technology we barely see each other face to face so we're
missing that connection also make that connection give back to someone let that
person cut in line let that person in traffic and I'm telling you it just
keeps it'll flow and you'll feel better for there's a dimension about who we are
that as a result of giving that's the only way we make that connection that's
why my favorite book says the greatest among you will be your servant a servant
is a giver I think service is misunderstood in our culture because we
confuse service with servitude or servant which to the egos offensive it's
demeaning it's like I'm but there is a saying and I always have used it just to
service to rule to be able to be of genuine service really allows you to
feel that your energy and your efforts make a difference September 2001 I was
in New York I awoke to the news and my friend that I was staying with Doug we
went to the roof of his apartment building and watched the World Trade
Center crumble and both of us simultaneously looked at each other and
and said we have to go down there right now we were literally running against
the current of people that were rushing out of the scene we were running into
the scene Doug works in the media so he had media
badges that allowed us to get beyond barricades that were just being set up
by a local police there was still no support system for these firefighters in
these rescue workers so it became a real necessity that we find food and water
really fast so we actually with with the support of a couple of NYPD police
officers we started looting all the nearby delis and supermarkets and we had
turkey meats and we had the finest of New York delis meats and everything
after a while it became clear that there was just one food that all the rescue
workers one and that was peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and I later
realized that it was because it was comfort food and it was the first area
where they actually did the first roll call
fire chief stood up on top of one of the crushed fire trucks there were probably
400 names that he called off and at least half of them were not present as
the reality set in with all of the firefighters around that they were not
present because they were not alive they were in the building they started to
literally crumble like dominos all around us they fell to their knees they
set on curbs and these big hardened men were just in tears the earth movers came
in to clear the way for all of the rescue vehicles and Wall Street was
lined with fine automobiles so the only way to move them was to literally push
them over with these earth movers they just flipped the cars one at a time
all the way down the road flipping cars out of the way and and I watched these
these material items go from being this beautiful car that I was drilling over
to just being trash in seconds we watched and we just stood there you know
like 12 guys got oh my god how can they do that but then it became
really clear to me that it's like that was so irrelevant to the task of finding
people alive that all of the material world was just garbage at that point it
didn't matter I had suited up you know rescue workers uniform basically with
the respirator and everything on and this actually end up becoming my past to
get into the Ground Zero where it was nothing but qualified rescue workers and
here I was just a civilian with really no qualification to be there so the
first victim that was found was this little man in a suit and he had been
completely crushed and disfigured under a fire truck and I I stood there looking
at him and imagining what his story must have
been that he he likely hid under the thing that felt the most secure like a
firetruck do you know what I mean he probably crawled under that firetruck as
debris was falling only to be crushed under that firetruck when an entire rig
was crushed upon him and so that was really the first sobering moment of Wow
okay this is what we're here for and this is what we're going to witness and
am i up for it and you know it was I didn't really even have to think about
it it was just a yes we have to understand that when we perform service
for others we're not really doing that I mean it looks like in the illusion that
we're doing that that we are serving others but the truth is there's no one
else to serve but the self there's nothing going on in the world except
self service the more you give the more you receive
but the the desire to give is not strictly for getting in return you know
there's not this intellectual thought of okay well I'm gonna give to you you and
you because if I do then maybe I'll get something most of us operate in that
mode already Moses didn't do that he just gave and received and served we
want to give as God gives without expectations without wanting anything in
return just to connect with another person to serve in the grandest way
greatness is your capacity and your willingness to be of service service to
what service to love service to peace service to beauty service to God service
to joy I think that when we do that when we take our attention off all of our
problems and all of our circumstances and we put it on somebody else it's the
thought of doing that that allows us to lose track of ourselves and lose track
of our problems and that's an act of creation recently I was inspired by my
own son Beau who was having a Bar Mitzvah and the rabbi explained to him
that the Mitzvah was really in the stretch going beyond what he felt
comfortable doing what kind of challenges do you feel
like you faced and that you had to overcome to to do this great mid-song
I'm giving away all my money so that's always hard what kind of project are you
gonna do I'm raising money to build a school in a poor part of Uganda he
decided that he would build a school an entire school yeah a seven room
schoolhouse and donate a hundred percent of his money so Moses did exactly the
same thing you're doing both he left his comfort zone to do something good for
people that desperately needed it the village where Beau's project is going to
be built is called Chico era and the difference between a child going to
school and not going to school is really the difference between life and death
for many children says beau I've decided to put my money towards a school we've
received money from over 500 people great how old is she she's only 12
that's weird no I think that's beautiful I know
that's awesome they were just ecstatic and they really got that this was a
child helping children how does it feel to be a philanthropist what's up this
has been a tremendous opportunity not just for the children of Chico zero but
for also for kids in the u.s. to get the idea that there's more that they can do
there are some people that don't have the capacity to receive the good that
wants to come into their life and they end up becoming martyrs they end up
burning themselves out because they give but they never replenish themself
through being available to the presence expressing through them through
receptivity the couples who proceed slowly in therapy the couples who seem
to never get there and no matter what happens in the relationship they just
don't really improve have what we call a defense against receiving they have no
receptors for letting stuff in not only letting love in but letting compliments
in letting positive statements in letting appreciation in to surrender
yourself enough to be able to see first from God the Holy Spirit and
then from those around you I think it's one of the most sacred acts that we
perform the the complete whole state is a is an individual and that gives with
ease and with grace they're here to give to share their gifts their time and
their talents their capacities while at the same time they're in tune with the
fundamental order of existence their real being and they're receptive to this
flow through them they can receive love they can receive intuitive hits they can
receive wisdom and guidance they can see the beauty that is everywhere so there's
a complete cycle and ultimately giving and receiving are one
most of us have heard prophets and sages and enlightened beings say that we're
all one but we look out at the world and we see separation everywhere so how can
that be true does that mean that I'm one with Jack the Ripper as well as Mother
Teresa does that mean that I'm one with you are these just airy-fairy ideas or
could this be the next step in all of us realizing that we're actually an
embodiment of God the fundamental principle that you find encoded in all
major religions all authentic spiritual paths is this spiritual idea called
oneness that we are at one with life we're at one with the presence of God
we're at one with each other we find that in all the traditions here o Israel
the Lord our God is one one presence one power the Atma the Buddha nature you
know the the Christ had one it's in quantum physics Rupert Sheldrake the
unified field one presence everywhere this oftentimes doesn't seem to square
with physical evidence primarily because the average individual
sees the world through the filter of a sense of separation they see the world
through their senses and if you're more in the ego then you're gonna sense
survival fear this angst that you've got to get yours that it's all about getting
getting getting getting through spiritual practices you go beyond that
the sensory realm and you enter into a field where you see not with eyesight
but with insight that everything is connected the scientist the quantum
scientists would call it a unified field that is everywhere in its fullness that
is undivided that's what being awake means is to say well I'm dancing this
illusion of separateness but I'm not separate so once an individual is broken
through then all the things on the surface that seems separate begin to
work together for our good because we're now in tune with everything on the
invisible level so you end up working not harder but you end up working a lot
cleaner a lot easier because you're in tune with all of life so you're not
trying to make something happen on the surface you're trying to make something
welcome on the invisible side of life so oneness is the primary principle is
that it's the it's the linchpin of power we're at one with God one with love one
with life one with all the power that there is until we're willing to embrace
the totality of our humanity and our divinity we can never be in oneness
because we're taught to say I'm not that we're taught to say you know I see
something I don't like so I don't want to be that and we push that part of
ourselves aside in a time all of us including myself at times find it hard
to be at one with someone or someone's that either don't agree with us or that
have values that would be totally we believe to be totally destructive these
days I'm having a lot of trouble with phony people and I can see that I don't
like that part of myself that I'm always searching for ways to be more authentic
and more real and show more of myself even as a teacher I finally went to take
my first nap in 40 hours 40 plus hours I really don't know if it's kind of
timeless there and I found an apartment building that had been completely
abandoned and so I went into the lobby of this apartment building and and I
found a couch and I dusted it off and I laid down on the couch with my face
against the back of the couch and I and I cuddled up and I bundled up and and
probably about a half hour into my sleepless nap I could feel the little
man the first victim that we found a little man in a suit I could feel him
kneeling behind me and I could see it vividly he was kneeling behind me
his disfigured face staring at the back of my head I could feel his breath on
the back of my neck and I was pretty pretty terrified and I just like laid
there for I don't know how long it was five or ten minutes just thinking what
is he doing and I was still and quiet long enough for that voice that you know
that voiced whatever you want to call it my internal voice that said to me very
loud and clearly this could be your Vietnam or dot-dot-dot and it just left
me kind of hanging like that I didn't know what the dot-dot-dot was
but I knew what the this could be your Vietnam meant having grown up seeing all
the X vets with all of their new drama that they've brought back from the war
and their flashbacks having just had my first Ground Zero flashback I knew that
this could be something that could stay with me that way for the rest of my life
and it could probably trouble my future or and I knew that the answer to the
aura was back out on the rebel so I got up and I suited up again and put my mask
on and I and I walked around the building and as I rounded the corner
they had put up a new work light and it was this very bright brilliant light and
everything just seemed so bright and so brilliant that I was likes just druk and
I I just looked around at all these people and everything everything just
instantly appeared different to me and I stood there with tears in my eyes it
felt like I was just the world was in slow-motion I was watching people go by
and all I could see was just spirits crossing and spirits working and chain
gangs of spirits and it was so clear to me that everything was interconnected
and it was all one big body of God everybody had dropped their egos they
had dropped their identities they had dropped their rank and they were working
together for the greater good of all and I was so lit up with possibility for
humankind of what it can be like when we all are
working together in this way and I could really get beyond concept what oneness
was knowing that the entire world was experiencing what it was experiencing
all the separation and fear and chaos that was going on in the world here I
was standing there experiencing the greatest bliss and beauty of my life and
I just I remember just wishing that the world could see this situation through
my eyes when I first decided to be on this spiritual journey
I was really looking to become a better me and my sister always told me that I
was angry and I was selfish and self-absorbed and this whole whole list
of characteristics that I didn't want to be so I started working on becoming this
nice person and I learned how to talk in a nice voice and I learned how to give
things away that I had if you wanted them I did all these things and then I
went to a seminar one day and I'm standing there and everybody's looking
at me and the MIL this seminar this woman shouts out here a bitch and I
thought well I know that how does she know and she said to me let me ask you
something Debby if you were remodeling a house and you were six weeks late and
$20,000 over budget do you think it might help to be a little kooky and all
of a sudden a light went on because I thought if I just got rid of all my bad
qualities and believe me I have plenty that somehow that would make me a good
person the piece I was missing is that every dark quality of mine came bearing
gifts and you can go down the list things that we see that are very
negative oftentimes have the effect of taking us to the next stage of our
evolution you take somebody like a George Bush he was an evolutionary
trigger he's he's galvanized the peace movement parts of the peace move then
ever spoken to each other in many years since the 60s he comes along with a war
ethic and a preemptive strike war ethic peace movement starts talking
so he actually was a very positive force for the evolution of many positive
things on the planet see if I want to grow and evolve spiritually I have to
take my projection off of them and own and embrace that part of myself we have
to be lovers of humanity we have to be lovers of ourselves and even seek to
love that which our ego or our mental perception would say you know it I can't
love that I'm a phony bitch now the question is how am I gonna love myself
being a phony pooch go within and embrace it anyway and even as I say this
they're probably gonna bleep me out because nobody can bear that they might
be a phony bunch so then they've got to shut me down and we all have to pretend
like we're not that people get confused in this conversation because they'll say
well I'm not a murderer or I'm not a rapist but I would say find out what
kind of person would be a murderer what kind of person would be a rapist those
are the questions that we must ask ourselves because maybe a rapist would
be somebody who's wounded or sick we all have a wounded part of ourselves we all
have a sick part of ourselves we all have a twisted part of ourselves and
even though we'd like to fit into the egos ideal of being a perfect human
being we're not we're all that there is and when we can open our hearts and have
compassion for the part of us that might murder
we have no idea that if we're capable of that especially for living and watching
this film but maybe maybe in the right or wrong circumstances we are all
capable of anything the most beautiful glorious act of greatness and what we
would consider one of the most horrible crimes against humanity and when we
embrace all of ourselves knowing that we're both human and that we are divine
well voila sudden you have a whole human being and
what you feel is oneness I was married to a woman who was in so many ways the
embodiment of all the things we're talking about Linda has always been such
an inspiration for me and I know for so many other people because of her
kindness and her beauty when my daughter and I were in Minnesota with family we
woke up the next morning to hear that two men had broken into her apartment
and had killed her the anger and the grief and the the profound sadness for
me was overwhelming my daughter and I and a couple of others we were talking
and crying it was very late at night and my cell phone was beeping because the
battery was was wearing down and so I I just hit the button to turn the power
off but for the first time it didn't go off something very different happened
the one and only picture that I had of Linda on my phone flashed full screen
and froze there and we felt her so profoundly connected with us and it was
in that moment that I felt this profound shift within me even toward these men
who had killed her for me the powerful emotion that I felt over and over again
was was this connection this compassion for people who must have gone through
something truly terrible to have committed such a terrible crime against
a woman who was so beloved and so cared for by everyone that knew her there was
a song that I wrote and performed at her funeral and it was a way of both healing
my heart but also imagining what Linda would say from the other side of the
veil if she could reach back and speak to us about oneness
you forget me just call me by my name and my soul it will answer time and time
you can find me deeper here
in the game
if you have a spiritual practice when those insights occur they integrate into
your way of living they don't wipe you out nor that they just fade into the
recesses of memory as to a wonderful moment you want one sad integrates into
you in that sense of oneness unity becomes more real than anything
do you have a destiny Moses believed that his destiny was to lead the
Israelites out of Egypt into the Promised Land while on the other hand
forrest gump felt that life is like a box of
chocolates and you never know what you're going to get it can be a little
scary trying to tackle an idea so big but it might be worth another look since
the final key to experiencing yourself as an embodiment of God is to uncover
your deepest yearning and your reason for living the calling is always upon us
there's always something within us that wants to become conscious of itself as
us it's called the next stage of our evolution there's something within all
of us that we must Express so Moses represents you and me an ordinary person
on an ordinary day having an extraordinary experience where Moses
climbs a mountain and there he has an encounter with a presence that shows up
as this flame and a bush that is burning but the bush won't be consumed meaning
that the source of this presence isn't in the material realm the source of this
presence comes from and is presencing that which is divine and eternal and
Moses doesn't know quite what to do with this as either you or I would do it's he
knows there's something in him that knows this is about to completely
transform his life now I consider myself a a fairly spiritual person but if I was
sitting here today in the bush were to stop burning in my mind I'd go get the
fire extinguisher the bush is always glowing I had an opportunity to be with
a powerful shaman in Africa of a few years ago and we were traveling at night
and I was kind of stumbling and they were just walking through the jungle
like it was daylight and we went out to a clearing and had this very powerful
experience out there and after the experience everything was lit up
everything was aglow with this fire the leaves were on fire the ground was on
fire everything was aglow and I was aware
that these individuals that were taking me through the jungle they were seeing
like this they had this night vision that allowed them to see the luminosity
from all of nature and in that instant I had the same thing I had that kind of a
spiritual night vision that allowed me to see that everything was ablaze with
the Spirit of God and I thought about Moses seeing the burning bush at that
moment he was in transcendent awareness that he could see clearly that God is
everywhere and everything is aglow with this fire this power and this presence
Moses was having a good day when Moses asks the bush ask this flame
asked this presence who are you he hears I am that I am and we don't know whether
the conversation is actually audible in human terms or it's a transmission from
the knower that is everywhere present into his heart but nevertheless this
communication says something and the communication is this there is a journey
that you are to take Joseph Campbell would later call that the hero's journey
that there's a journey that is for each one of us to take that takes us from our
local temporal egoistic point of view or self to an understanding a person of
destiny a person of wholeness and completeness and that journey is the
Moses journey Moses didn't think he was worthy and so that that unworthiness
combined with willingness provided a space for the presence of God to come
through because Moses wasn't blocking God out with his ego so the rest of the
story is both a literal story a historic story but it's also a meta story it's a
story of you and the story of me and all the characters in that story are parts
of ourselves so Moses is then told that he must go and free the slaves and he is
to take them to the promised or to fulfilment to land of milk and
honey and he questions he I can't do this I mean he stutters he can't speak
well he's like Who am I to do this and you and I feel the same way when a dream
an idea a calling something calls to us about make a difference give something
do something in your local community do something for the world do something for
your family do something and right away we feel like oh I'm not up to it I don't
have what is required I'm not enough for that I think everyone has to come to
grips with the fact that if there's a there's a destiny within all of us
there's something calling all of us and we are presently not the person that can
deliver that destiny we grow into it as we say yes to it is an old statement
that God does not call the qualified God qualifies the called so that when we
answer that call then the presence qualifies you it qualified me I didn't
have all of the skills I didn't have the resources I didn't have the money I
didn't have the space didn't have anything but God qualified me through my
yes so people showed up resources showed up buildings showed up individuals who
could catch the vision that I was articulating showed up and then I
changed I grew so the person that said yes it's not the same person sitting
here today the person that's sitting here today saying yes to the next stage
of the vision will not be the person that inherits and articulates and
manifests that aspect of the vision we're constantly evolving and growing
and unfolding based on our ability and our willingness and our capacity to say
yes I'm willing yes and so Moses agrees to the journey and there's that part of
us that says yes to our own destiny that says yes to our purpose as we discover
it and then of course comes having to encounter Pharaoh
not only the historic ferrule but the personal ferrule the the personal Ferro
is our intellect it's the part of us that's all made an
agreement with the kingdom of our lives as we've known it with everything just
as it is the status quo the comfort zone and then there's this part of us that
wants to emerge this part of us it wants to make a difference and there's a whole
argument that goes on internally about no I'm not about to make that change and
ultimately in this story which is your story and my story the hero's journey
the trouble builds up the trouble gets tougher things get more and more
complicated and finally in desperation Pharaoh says okay go ahead take the
people and go now the thing that I find very interesting about Moses is that he
had a speech impediment we don't know what kind it was but one
might think why would God choose someone with a speech impediment let's say a
stutter to deliver four hundred four thousand however many unruly Israelites
into a new way of being so here they are fussing and arguing among themselves and
and Moses with his speech impediment you would say why does God have such a sense
of humor and you say why would he choose Moses one of the reasons why God could
use him is because of his humility and oftentimes people that seem that they're
lacking something within themselves they become great vessels and great vehicles
for the power of God to express through because there's nothing to inhibit the
flow from expressing through them very often we think we have impediments or
limitations and we don't think God can use us but God will take your limitation
and use you and it to deliver somebody else into a new place in a new way of
so the sea opens and then the real journey begins because they spent 40
years in the desert
which is in the Bible and in many of the mystical traditions 40 is symbolic of
simply this the amount of time required for transformation Noah has 40 days in
the flood Jesus has 40 days on the Mount of
temptation Moses has 40 years in the desert it's the amount of time required
for the transformation and for some of us this is our 40th moment right now
watching this right now we know that this is the moment when the life we've
lived is not sufficient to the purpose that we're being called for I think it's
useful for us to understand why the soul came to the body how the soul came into
physicality in order that it might experience itself express itself in the
physical world as who it really is thus to know itself in its own experience so
the fear is that if we identify the I am that I am with the I am that I am that
somehow it makes us pretending to be something we're not being or taking on
something but what if it's just the opposite what if by saying that I am an
opportunity for the I am that I am to presence divine love through my hands
this day to a child and I'm teaching or to an old person I'm helping carry the
groceries or to someone that I call who's in pain or hurting in some way and
I'm the voice that comforts them what if when we give ourselves just the
possibility that if we allow ourselves the I am that I am
might be an Avenue through which the I am and I am that is God that is the
presence that is the power of life itself might find a way an entry point
to make a difference for good right here on planet Earth but we got to be careful
here because when the ego starts to think that it's God
it just gets arrogant it gets greedy it takes us over completely it's not a
pretty picture we have to dip into our soul to our essence in order to be all
that there is the difficulty is this we're a mixture of a constellation of
different identities that have emerged for different reasons we're mothers
we're fathers or brothers or sisters we're employers were employees there's
there's all kinds of identities and every single identity is pulling upon
our energy for its survival however there is a central identity which is the
I am presence there's a central identity which is not in comparison with all
other identities are in comparison with anybody else it's the image and likeness
of God it's a unique configuration of infinite potential infinite possibility
and within that core identity it is speaking it's calling our real name and
inviting us to greatness it's inviting us to be more ourself
remember it's the still small voice we have to get quiet enough to hear it in
through spiritual practice of Prayer lowly listening of meditation after a
while you're able to tell the difference between the voice of one of the
constellation of shifting identities or the true voice that's coming from your
soul that wants you to be great and the definition of greatness is your capacity
and your willingness to serve when we get past survival when we get past those
small-minded things then the only thing the soul wants to do is to make a
difference to to give to humanity what can I do there's so much you can do you
can't even believe it right at the end of your fingertips it's a whole world of
your possible creation and it is ignited it is inspired it is embraced and it is
in fact experienced in extraordinary ways the moment you decide to be in
service not just to the world but to the world of your own creation when that
central voice begins to speak and it's still and it's small it's calling you to
a greater degree of service and a greater degree of serving human time a
greater degree of serving your family greater degree of serving everyone you
come in contact with that's one of the ways you can tell the difference between
that voice is it calling you to serve or is it calling you just to take care of
yourself it's calling you just to take care of yourself it may be coming from
the ego the question often arises for us so how do I know the difference between
God's will and my will and do I have a will that what do I do with my will and
my understanding of that is that where is God
jesus said the kingdom of God is within you
so within us we know we have the faroe part of the intellect or the part of us
that argues for circumstances that we know and then there's the prophetic part
or there's the part of us that does have a destiny that does have a call to make
a difference for good and so when we align the Pharaoh with the heart then we
align our will with God's will when we enact creation we are emulating the
creator and the result of that is that we feel good
we feel love we feel expanded your also needs inner peace and his contentment
love creative expression and of course divine connection those the qualities
that make you feel good you're actually wired so that you'll know you're on
track by the aliveness you feel I am that I am and it's in your being you're
embracing of the presence and standing in that that you give the greatest gift
that you can to the world and so the understanding about that and then living
from that is the journey of course miracles calls it the eighteen-inch
journey from the head to the heart in that moment standing there overlooking
Ground Zero and all the chaos that was going on arose by my life destiny well
my selfish pursuit of trying to get what I needed to get and be where I needed to
be in my life just seemed ridiculous I knew that from that point on my life
would be about all of us it would be about community my heart was so filled
with possibility of what we're capable of when we're working from that point
because I know it's possible my whole life now has been about recreating that
community it is the catalyst for my wanting to create elevate film festival
which is when you really break it down it's just a community of people who
understand this oneness that I'm talking about
can we bring people into an experience that's so much bigger than who we think
we are that we can experience that level of oneness because when you do there's
nothing more beautiful in this lifetime and that's experience there is nothing
greater than that
the kingdom of God is unconditional the kingdom of God is peace of mind the
kingdom of God is joy in my soul I said yeah let me seek that stuff and then I
don't have to worry about getting anything being with anybody doing
anything special let me go for the unconditional love first of myself and
then to be able to extend it to everyone else let me go for the peace of mind
where I'm not worrying about what might happen what could happen where I'm just
embracing the presence my I am that's the manner of God in this right now
moment let me go for that and let that trinkle down and fill every other aspect
of my life that's the kingdom to that degree that we begin to know who we are
that who I am behind my eyes is the same person that you are behind your eyes and
that's the kingdom and that's the connection that connects all of us and
as we get closer to that then we begin to manifest the attributes of that in
our life and our daily living so once I really understood what the kingdom was
oh yeah oh yeah baby I want to seek that
so paradoxically in that moment while the world was experiencing chaos and
confusion and fear I was standing there experiencing my first true experience
with God through giving and a service that I was witnessed to I had
experienced the oneness the greatest sense of oneness that I ever know as
possible and from that arose my destiny now that
we understand the three keys for experience in ourselves as an embodiment
of God now it's time for us to consider what we can create from that new
experience if saying and being I am that I am really can unlock the power of God
within us the next question is for how extensive is that power can we move
mountains and create miracles like Jesus and Moses are these just fantastical
ideas or can they really change the world I is the creative factor of the
universe and when you add am to it what you get is the movement of the creative
force of the universe so every time you say I am you are creating you are
creating movement I think of it this way we say I am broke yes and that's how you
stay I am lonely yes and that's how you stay but if we were to begin to use the
creative force and energy of that name I and the movement of am to say I am whole
I am holy I am complete I am beautiful I'm gorgeous I wealthy I am we begin
energy moving in our life and we reeducate our souls as all Moses had to
do was to bring that oneness that creative energy of God and put an action
to it and Farrell had no choice but to back down he recognized what he was
dealing with he was able to take the I am presence and lift up an entire nation
to see who and what they really were and who's they really were
there's actually a way to activate this creative energy through a process that
we can practice every day and the great thing about this process
is that it applies to almost every area of our life and you can remember it with
five simple words and guess what the words are the only thing that changes is
what you focus on when you say those words the first step is to imagine what
you want to be do or have and really make sure that it's something that
matters and the second step is to repeat the words I am that I am and allow
yourself to expand into that new possibility so if we want to have a new
way of being we must say it and repeat it time and time and time again when we
repeat things we encode them in our consciousness the third step is pretty
easy in fact you're already doing it it's to breathe controlled breathing
centers you energizes you and actually amplifies the effect one way to practice
this is to say I am that on the out-breath and then as you breathe in
either think or say the words I am like this I am that I am that
this simple process takes whatever you're feeling and imagining and
projects it out into the world so that you can experience it in your real life
one of the ways I like to support people in doing this is by thinking about the
qualities that inspire you the qualities that you desire see somebody maybe you
know them or maybe you've read about them in your awareness bring that image
of them very close to you and then just close your eyes and start repeating I am
that I am really allowing yourself to encode that image that way of being and
those qualities write into yourself I am the joy I want to experience I am
the peace I want to experience I am the beauty I want to realize I am the
abundance I want to realize and do the power of that declaration do the flow of
that kind of energy it manifests in and as your life when we talk about
manifestation or getting stuff know we want two cars three houses you got one
but why do you need four cars I could say the same thing about shoes I've got
two feet I've got 80 pair of shoes but it's matter to my soul what if
manifestation of things is not the same thing as mana the presence of God that
supplies your every need there's some people that are dominated by the ego and
they try to get they they try to use the principles for acquisitiveness to get
things and they hoard and inside they're very poor people they may have a lot of
stuff but they're just poor people with a lot of stuff advanced students
understand that it works exactly the opposite not to try to magnetize
something to us but to try to bring something through us many people say I
just don't know who I am they don't know their soul they don't know their soul
and it's great people think they can reach out get the cars the jobs the best
relationships the money people all gives people get that and more power to them
but they'll still they still say to themselves I still feel empty what's
missing you got about the soul and that's really
what we want we want the grace and the majesty and the presence of God does so
fill us until it's unspeakable because if we can speak it and call it something
we'll try to fix it and change it so we just want to be and in that beingness we
have the mana which is the manifestation of the presence of God and it's not
about a car or a house it's about the presence of God truly embodying the God
presence isn't just about being saintly and having this upward connection to the
divine that we would call mystical and enlightened but it also requires that we
fully inhabit our bodies and fully be in our sensuality our sexuality and really
combined and fuse those energies love is God God is love so you are God you are
love and when you use that energy of love God will always say yes it'll
manifest exactly what you want so if you can access that feeling of oneness or
the energy of wholeness what Jesus calls the Kingdom of Heaven within you then
you can begin to experience that all around you in the world but if we have
an idea that something other than the kingdom of God is something we would
seek after that we will create because we are so powerful we will create in our
own illusion that which is not of the heaven of which we dream that is we'll
create our own hell on earth
Moses in the code never made it to the Holy Land and since then Israel has been
in constant conflict millions have lost their lives due to a misinterpretation
of the name of God and religious factions have been fighting for
centuries ironically in the name of God the thousands of people of all races and
religions are flying in from all corners of the world armed with the powerful
intent to finally bring peace to the holy land by literally embracing the old
city of Jerusalem
at the time of the hug and for it is important for us to keep our pure
intention and relax
so we're walking to the wall now but we're gonna join thousands of other
people and circling the entire old city of Jerusalem
we're here facing the the wall so as you breathe out you say I am that meaning I
am that peace in Jerusalem feel the peace radiating from this city
shall I share my judgment about
and so 3,500 years later Moses journey is complete by delivering the true
meaning of the name of God to the holy land it began with the conversation but
continues today through each one of us the door has been unlocked now it's up
to us to step into a new world

Goalcast’s Top 10 Most Epic Inspirational Speeches | Vol.2
– I hated that job and I clung to that job.
Ten years in a place without heat,
six years at a job I felt stuck in,
maybe I was afraid of change.
When I was 29, I told myself
the next acting job I get,
no matter what it pays,
I will from now on, for better or worse,
be a working actor.
And now I didn't have either the internet
or a cell phone or a job,
but something good happened.
I got a low-paying theater job
in a play called Imperfect Love,
which led to a film called 13 Moons with the same writer,
which led to other roles, which led to other roles
and I've worked as an actor ever since.
I didn't know that would happen.
At 29, walking away from data processing,
I was terrified, but this made me very hungry, literally.
I couldn't be lazy.
Now I tell this story
because the world might say,
you are not allowed to yet.
Please don't even bother asking,
don't bother telling the world you are ready,
a rhythm sets in.
Just try not to wait until like me,
you're 29 before you find it
and if you are that's fine too.
Some of us never find it, but you will, I promise you.
Raise the rest of your life to meet you.
Don't search for defining moments
because they will never come.
The moments that define you have already happened
and they will already happen again.
Don't wait until they tell you
you are ready, get in there.
I waited a long time out in the world
before I gave myself permission to fail.
What did Beckett say?
Ever tried, ever failed,
no matter, try again,
fail again, fail better,
the world is yours.
Treat everyone kindly in the light of the night.
– You know my mother had me
when she was 16 years old
and I used to sleep on the floor
and I had eight uncles in that same house
and they they did everything under the sun,
you know, going in and out of prison
and my mother she worked at Wendy's
and she would get off work at Wendy's
and I would be about the last kid sitting in the park
and I'll be waiting on my mother
because I didn't want to go home
because you know every other day
or every other week our front door would get kicked in
because my uncles, they sold drugs,
so every opportunity I got in solitude
to cultivate a vision for my life,
I took advantage of it,
but one night my mother came into the park
and I walked off the field and I said,
can you please introduce me to my father
because I played every sport
and every sport I played,
we had to show our birth certificate
and so every time I pulled out my birth certificate
I would always see my mother's name,
but I never saw my father's name,
and so it bother me.
So she says sure and so my first encounter with my father,
I shook his hand, I said, "Hey man, how you doing?"
He said, Hey little man.
He said, man I heard you could really play sports.
I said, thanks I heard you can too.
I said, but here's what I need you to do for me.
I need you to pick me up every Friday night,
book me out every Saturday morning
and you can take me back home after that.
I don't need any money, I don't need any clothes.
I just need to make it to the NFL,
so I can help my mother and my grandmother.
Can you do that?
He said, Yeah, I gotcha.
So he picked me up on Friday night,
the first Saturday morning he shakes me,
it's 4:00 a.m. in the morning.
I wake up, I'm wiping the coal out of my eyes.
He said, Little man you said you wanted it, right?
I said, Yes sir.
He said, Get up, we're running two miles
to this five station two miles back home.
I said, Okay, let's do it
and so he walks by me and he busted a u-turn and
he looked up at me, he said, Son.
I said, Yes sir.
He said, I want you to pull
that other person outside of you.
No disrespect, I said,
but I don't see another person.
I said, so I understand we have different lives
and you have your job and so, if you're tired,
I get it you can go back in the house
and you go to sleep, but you're not stopping me
from running to this fire station.
I'm running to this fire station,
whether you go or not.
and he looked at me and what he said to me,
it pierced my heart in such a way.
He said, Son, what I'm trying to get you to understand
is no matter how hard you work,
there is somebody on the inside of you
that works even harder.
He said, No matter how dedicated you are,
there is somebody on the inside of you
that's more dedicated.
No matter how committed you are,
there was somebody on the inside of you
that's more committed
and you don't even know what commitment is yet.
You think commitment is just saying,
yes sir, I will, but what commitment is,
commitment is staying true to what you said
you were going to do long after the mood
that you have said it in has left,
meaning on the days when you
don't feel like doing what you
said you would do, you get up
and you do it anyway.
That's what builds character
and he said, I need you to understand the concept
that there's another person on the inside of you
because one day in your life you will face something
that's a lot tougher than you
and your strength and your drive
and your commitment and your work ethic won't do it
you have to realize that it's something
on the inside of you that's greater than anything
that life can throw at you and immediately I got.
And so when my life changed
not only did my football career end,
I got a paralyzed right arm and hand.
Life changed overnight,
but I was extremely grateful for
because the whole time I understood
that you have to tap into in order
to get through one of the darkest, toughest,
roughest moments of your life,
there's another person on the inside.
– This was my shot.
I cried a lot.
It was so embarrassing.
I got fired from Frasier, the one everyone knew
was going to be a hit and it was.
This time it was really hard not to think
that it wasn't meant to be, my career as an actress.
A couple of months later,
I was almost completely out of money.
Then I got a call from a friend, the actor Richard Kind,
who said, and this is exactly how he sounds,
I heard what happened.
I don't know how you get up in the morning.
How do you even get out of bed,
get dressed, walk out the door and show your face?
I was getting up in the morning
and leaving my apartment,
so maybe I was coping better than I was expected to.
That's a good sign and I understand that
because the '20s, they are at that time in your life
when you're really getting acquainted to self-doubt.
When there's so much seemingly at stake,
so let me reassure you, it's not supposed to be easy.
You're supposed to have moments of uncertainty
about which path to take
because the '20s are full of crossroads.
And when one door closes, another door always opens.
It really does.
That's what I would tell myself
to keep those moments of doubts only moments
and it worked I kept going.
Then it all changed after many auditions,
I was the second person cast
in the pilot called Friends Like Us,
which would later be changed to Friends.
Jim Burrows also directed this pilot
and the first 10 episodes of Friends.
One day the six of us were talking with Jimmy
exchanging the time I got fired stories
and Jimmy told them mine.
Well, she's got the worst one of all.
She got fired from Freddie Jerk.
Well, it's a good thing you got fired,
or you wouldn't have been on this show.
He was right.
And it was a good thing I didn't get Saturday Night Live
and that Romy and Michele, that
that pilot didn't work out
and every other disappointment that happened.
They were actually more like guideposts
that kept me on my path.
Oh and after I got fired from Frasier,
I went to a birthday party and feeling
like I had nothing at all to lose.
I flirted with a guy, who was way out of my league,
we dated and on Thursday, Michel and I
will have been married for 15 years
and we'll celebrate with our remarkable twelve-year-old son.
So thank God I got fired,
there is a reason for everything.
– I had a lot of failures.
I feel for funny things that I failed at
a key primary school tests for two times
and I failed three times for the middle school
you know for three years I tried,
failing the universities
So I applied jobs for 30 times, got rejected.
I went for a police, they said, no, you're not good.
I went to even the KFC.
When KFC came to China, come to our city,
24 people went for the job,
23 people accepted,
I was the only one guy,
and we went for police, five people, four of them accepted.
I was the only guy did not receive it.
So to me being turned down, rejected,
oh by the way, I told you
that I applied for Harvard for ten times rejected.
I know I'll be rejected, I just wanted to say that.
I think we have to get used to it,
we're not that good even today,
we still have a lot of people reject us.
I don't think in this world a lot of people
be rejected more than 30 times.
If we, you know the only thing we never give up,
the only thing like, we're like a Forrest Gump.
We keep on fight, we keep on change ourself.
We don't complain.
Whether you are successful, not successful.
I find that when people when they finish the job,
if they make a mistake and they fail,
if they always complete the others,
this guy will never come back.
If the guy only check himself
yeah, something wrong with me here,
something won't be there.
This guy has a hope.
– I said yes when I wanted to say no,
I don't want to do that.
He became physically violent with me.
I'd never been in an abusive relationship before.
I felt as if I didn't have the profile of a woman
who would ever be abused verbally, emotionally
and sure not physically.
And I remember when that relationship finally ended
and I was grateful that it ended and I was alive
because there are some days
when my life was in danger.
I had so much guilt and anger and blame
and more than anything shame.
How did I get here?
And the bigger question was how will I get out?
How do I move from this place?
I remember sitting in the doctor's office,
sitting on the table
and she asked me a myriad of questions.
She left the room and came back
with a piece of paper in her hand
and she said, Lisa, you are clinically depressed
and I need to give you this prescription
and I looked at the piece of paper
and it said Lisa Nichols, Prozac.
I didn't see that level of sad coming.
I think when sad comes, you don't know it's coming.
It's a little, one little circumstance,
another circumstance, another missed moment
where you don't speak your mind,
another moment when you don't say what's on your heart,
another moment when you say yes
and you really wanted to say no,
another moment when you just
put everyone else in front of you
and here I was in the doctor's office,
I asked my doctor could I do something before
I fulfilled the prescription?
Could I try something else?
Because when she said I was really, really sad
what I realized was that
I had just forgot who I was.
That I had become Jilani's mom, that's all I was.
I'd become his fiancee, that's all I was
and then I was the woman that he abused
and then I was the daughter trying
to hide the abuse from my father and my mother
and then I was the motivational speaker
trying to hide the fact that I was sad from everyone.
I just forgot who I was and so I asked her
can I have 30 days to just discover me again
and I did three things.
One, I put affirmations all around my house
reminding me who I was,
you are an unrepeatable miracle,
you are beautiful in your own right,
you are, you deserve healthy love,
you are a child of God,
everywhere I could look at my house
was Post-It note reminding me of who I was.
I read scriptures and I read words
that showed me my birthright and then every day
I got in the mirror and I completed three sentences.
I looked in my eyes and I said,
Lisa, I'm proud that you
and I found seven things to celebrate Lisa for
and the second sentence was
Lisa, I forgive you for
and I found seven different things
to cut the shackles of blame, shame,
guilt, regret and anger around
and I said, Lisa, I commit to you that
and I made seven different commitments to myself
every day for 30 days and when I went back to the doctor
I was completely ready to take the prescription
and fill it if I needed to.
When I share it with her, she asked me question
after question after question again.
Then at the end, she goes I have
two questions for you, Lisa.
I said what, she said what have you been doing
for the last 30 days
and can I use it with other patients
because I found my way back to me.
And another moment that I'm super, super grateful for
was when my daddy took me on my first date.
I was 12 years old and he took me out
to a restaurant on the pier in Marina del Rey
and he ordered my drink and ordered my food
and open the car door and all the things
you would do on a great date that
I didn't know anything about at 12.
And at the end of the evening,
I went to walk in the house
and my father was opening, holding the door open for me
and he closed the door so I could not get in
and I stopped and I was like, daddy what's wrong
and he said I want you to know something Lisa.
Tonight I took you on your first date,
so you get to see how you get to be treated.
I wanted you to see how you get to be treated,
now sweetheart, how you choose to be treated,
that's gonna be on you.
The big moments in your life
are made up by the little decisions you make.
I didn't make a big decision
to get in an abusive relationship.
I made a little decision to lower my integrity bar.
I made another little decision to stay
when I saw the first sign that he didn't honor me
the way I deserve to be honored.
I made a little decision when I crossed over,
moved past that moment of discomfort
and allowed his words to make up for his behavior.
It was my job to fall madly in love with me first,
That no one was going to show me
how to love me, that I have to show not
only me how to love me,
but I had to show other people how to love me.
That you are the first example of
what loving you looks like, in the way you love you,
is the way the world's gonna love you.
So when you say I don't need rest, then we believe you.
When you say no, don't worry about me,
I'm fine, we believe you.
When you say no, I don't need help, we believe you.
When you say I'm fine by myself, we believe you.
So, here's what I realized
words are power, words, words speak life,
words, your life as a physical manifestation
of the conversation going on in your head
and it's a physical manifestation of the words
that are falling across your lips
and if you want to create a better life,
design a better conversation.
If you want to design a better conversation,
think about a thought, not about them,
but first about you and if you can feel it right now,
something stirring in your soul,
just that little something, you can't even describe it
then you're still in the game.
It ain't over yet.
it's never too late at 20, at 40,
at 55, at 75, at 88,
it ain't ever too late to press reset
and fall madly in love with the life
that you've been given and then you'll look up
and your life is barely,
then you look up and your life is barely recognizable.
I'm a girl from South Central LA.
Living between the Harlequin '30s
and the rollin' '60s,
had three fights a week to get home from school.
Got kicked out of college,
I was considered academically challenged.
I'm functionally dyslexic still.
I wear everything as a badge.
I'm fine with it.
I'm not successful in spite of it.
My success is beautiful because of it.
I'm that woman who was on government assistance, okay.
I'm that woman who got out of abusive relationship, okay.
But I'm also that woman who's authored
or co-authored seven bestsellers.
I'm also that woman who's a CEO
of a multi-million dollar business.
I'm also the woman who has an international brand
and touches over 30 million people a year.
I'm also that woman, don't wear the labels
and don't let the labels wear you.
You're bigger than a label.
I'm a woman before I'm a mother.
I'm a woman before I'm a CEO.
I'm a woman before I'm a daughter.
I'm a woman first, all things.
I'm not a hero I want to be a she-ro.
And I want to give her a chance
and I say to you as your sister,
you don't think you get to press reset,
you better think again, it is not over.
Matter of fact, it just begun.
– I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth, I know.
I was born in Follansbee, West Virginia.
And I went by where I was born last night about 10:30.
I was born in a cellar at home delivered by Dr. McGraw.
We had one bedroom for my sister, myself, and my parents.
we had a half bath and a kitchen.
Seven half years, we lived in that place.
There was no welfare, there was no food stamps,
there was no safety net, but I always had plenty to eat
'cause every time I asked for seconds,
my dad would say, no you had plenty.
But the reason I was born with a silver spoon,
my dad had only gone to the third grade.
That's all the education he had.
But why was I born with a silver spoon in my mouth
because I was taught by my parents.
That life's a matter of making choices,
wherever you are good or bad
because of the choices you make.
Don't blame anybody else.
But if you get an education, you're willing to work
and overcome problems and difficulty.
In this great country, you can amount to something.
That's why I was born with a silver spoon.
I was in this country
and I was taught personal responsibility
for choices you make.
When we talk about a commitment to excellence,
that's a choice you make.
What do you want to do,
having hopes and dreams and ambition?
See I think that is absolutely critical,
don't make the mistake I made.
I've done a lot of dumb things,
but let me tell you the one thing I regret.
We went to the University of Notre Dame,
we took a program on the bottom,
we took it to the very top
and for nine straight years,
we went to a January One Bowl;
the Sugar, the Cotton, the Orange, and the Fiesta.
Nobody's done it before, nobody's done it since.
We put it on top and we maintained it.
That's the thing I regret the most.
See there's a rule in life that says
you're either growing or you're dying.
The tree's either growing or it's dying.
So is grass, so is a marriage,
so is a business, so is a person,
doesn't have a thing to do with age.
My birthday candles cost more than the cake,
but it has everything to do with
my trying to get better,
my trying to prove we got on top
and say, you know, this is pretty good.
Let's maintain it, let's not take any risk.
We finished 2nd in the country at Notre Dame.
Everybody's calling me an idiot.
Guy finishes last in medical school,
they call him doctor.
That doesn't seem fair.
When I left Notre Dame, I never thought I'd coach again.
Where do you go from Notre Dame?
According to my mother you go directly to heaven,
you sit by the Pope, you don't coach anymore.
and then I went to live in a town
where the average age was deceased.
And what I found out I wasn't tired of coaching.
You have to have something to hope for,
something to dream and even though
you've done great things so far,
what's gonna happen now?
I want to give you a simple plan.
Life doesn't have to be complicated.
I try to keep life simple.
Do you realize there are only
seven colors of the rainbow?
Look what Michelangelo did with those seven colors.
There's only seven musical notes.
Look what Beethoven did with those seven notes.
There's only ten numbers.
Look what Bernie Madoff did with those ten numbers.
The point I make is it doesn't have to be complicated.
So you need four things in your life.
If you don't have any of these four things in your life,
you're going to have a tremendous void.
See everybody needs something to do.
Number two, everybody needs someone to love.
Number three, everybody needs someone to believe in
and in my case is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
But the fourth thing you need in your life
is you need something to hope for.
There's never a right time to do the wrong thing
and there's never a wrong time to do the right thing.
Just do what's right.
And I think it's right to be honest, right to be on time.
See ladies and gentlemen enjoy life, have fun.
You're going to have problems,
you're going to have difficulties.
That's part of life.
And don't tell people about your problems.
Do you know that 90% of the people don't care
and the other 10% are glad you got 'em,
so you're better off keeping it to yourself then.
You're gonna have problems,
but have fun with what you're doing.
People say did you have fun doing ESPN?
Not really because if you had fun being there,
people had fun being around.
Doesn't mean I don't do dumb things
and sometimes I wasn't real honest.
Do everything to the best of your ability
with time allotted.
You know, ladies and gentlemen,
not all of us be all-American,
not everybody can be first place.
Everybody can be the best you're capable being
and I want to tell you if you want to fail,
you in the right to fail.
That's what's great about this country.
You do not have the right to cause other people to fail
because you don't do everything that you're good in.
When you join a spouse,
you bring a child in the world.
You join a business, you join a team,
you have obligations, responsibilities
and you owe it to other people
to do the maximum you can in each everything you do.
It's not complicated.
And the last rule, you show people you care
and you walk in a room, your attitude,
hey here I am, look at me, and thought no.
Your attitude, there you are, how can I help you?
I wished I knew those three rules when I was 21.
I've used them for the last 40 years.
There's a statue of me at Notre Dame.
I guess they need a place for the pigeons to land, but
if you don't look at, just don't look up,
look at three words on the pedestal,
trust, commitment, love.
– I was flunking out of college.
I had a 1.7 grade point average.
I hope none of you can relate
at a 1.7 grade point average.
I was sitting in my mother's beauty shop.
They still call a beauty shop now?
What they call it now?
Yeah, I was sitting in the beauty parlor.
I was sitting in my mother's beauty parlor
and I'm looking in the mirror
and I see behind me this woman under the dryer
and every time she looked up she,
every time I looked up she was looking at me,
just looking me in the eye.
I didn't know who she was
and I said, you know she said somebody give me a pen,
give me a pen, so I have a prophecy, March 27 1975,
she said boy you were gonna travel the world
and speak to millions of people.
Now mind you, I flunked out of college.
I'm thinking about joining the army.
I didn't know what I was gonna do
and she's telling me I'm gonna travel the world
and speak to millions of people.
Well I have traveled the world
and I have spoke to millions of people,
but that's not the most important thing,
the success that I had.
The most important thing is that what she taught me
and what she told me that day
has stayed with me since.
I've been protected.
I've been directed.
I've been corrected.
that's right, fail big, you only live once,
So do what you feel passionate about
Don't be afraid to fail.
There's an old IQ test was nine dots
and you had to draw five lines
with a pencil within these nine dots
without lifting the pencil.
The only way to do it was to go outside the box.
So don't be afraid to go outside the box.
Don't be afraid to think outside the box.
Don't be afraid to fail big, to dream big,
dreams without goals
are just dreams
and they ultimately fuel disappointment.
So have dreams,
but have goals, life goals, yearly goals,
monthly goals, daily goals.
I try to give myself a goal every day
that to achieve these goals,
you must apply discipline
You have to work at it
You have to plan
You've heard the saying we don't plan to fail,
we fail to plan,
hard work works.
Working really hard is what successful people do
and in this text, tweet, twerk world
that you've grown up in,
remember just because you're doing a lot more
doesn't mean you're getting a lot more done.
Remember that, just because you're doing a lot more,
doesn't mean you're getting a lot more done.
Don't confuse movement with progress.
My mother told me, she said,
yeah 'cause you've been running in place all the time
and never get anywhere.
So continue to strive, continue to have goals,
continue to progress and anything you want good,
you can have,
so claim it.
Work hard to get it.
When you get it, reach back, pull someone else up,
each one, teach one.
Don't just aspire to make a living,
aspire to make a difference.
– I was 18 years old when I got married.
I belonged to a very conservative family, a Baloch family.
Where good daughters never say no to their parents.
My father wanted me to get married
and all I said was, if that makes you happy,
I'll say yes and of course,
it was never a happy marriage.
Just about after two years of getting married,
about nine years ago, I'm in a car accident.
Somehow my husband fell asleep
and the car fell in the ditch.
He managed to jump out, saved himself,
I'm happy for him, but I stayed inside the car
and I sustained a lot of injuries,
list is a bit long.
The radius ulna of my right arm were fractured,
the wrist was fractured,
shoulder bone and collarbone were fractured,
my whole ribcage got fractured,
but that injury that changed me
and my life completely was the spine injury.
Many people came to rescue.
They gave me CPR, they dragged me out of the car
and while they were dragging me out,
I got the complete transection of my spinal cord.
Those two and a half months in the hospital were dreadful.
I was at the verge of despair.
One day doctor came to me and he said,
well I heard that you wanted to be an artist,
but you ended up being a housewife.
I have a bad news for you,
you won't be able to paint again.
Next day doctor came to me and said,
your spine injury is so bad,
you won't be able to walk again.
I took a deep breath and I said it's alright.
Next day doctor came to me and said,
because of your spine injury
and the fixation that you have in your back,
you won't be able to give birth to a child again.
That day I was devastated.
I started to question my existence.
Why am I even alive?
So what kept me going was one day
I asked my brothers, I know I have a deformed hand,
but I'm tired of looking at these white walls
in the hospital and wearing these white scrubs.
Bring me some colors, bring me some small canvas.
I want to paint.
So the very first painting I made was on my deathbed.
Where I painted for the very first time.
What an amazing therapy it was,
without uttering a single word,
I could paint my heart out.
I could share my story.
People used to come and say,
what lovely painting, so much color.
Nobody could see the grief in it,
only I could and that day I decided
that I'm going to live life for myself.
I am going to be that perfect person for someone.
I am just going to take this moment
and I will make it perfect for myself,
that I'm going to fight my fears.
So I wrote down, one by one, all those fears
and I decided that I'm going to overcome these fears
one at a time.
You know what was my biggest fear?
But the day I decided that this is nothing but my fear.
I liberated myself by setting him free
and I made myself emotionally so strong
that the day I got the news that he is getting married,
I sent him a text that I'm so happy for you
and I wish you all the best
and he knows that I pray for him today.
Number two was I won't be able to be a mother again
and that was quite devastating for me,
but then I realized there are so many children in the world,
all they want is acceptance,
so there is no point of crying,
just go and adopt one and that's what I did.
(audience applauding and cheering)
I gave my name in different organizations,
and I waited patiently.
Two years later I got this call
from a very small city in Pakistan.
I got a call and they said, are you Muniba Mazari,
there is a baby boy and would you like to adopt?
I could literally feel the labor pains.
Yes, yes, I am going to adopt him.
I am coming to take him home
and that day Nael was two days old
and today he's six.
You know when you end up being on the wheelchair,
what's the most painful thing?
People think that they will not be accepted
by the people because we,
in the world of perfect people, are imperfect.
So I decided to appear more in public.
I started to paint.
I have done a lot of modeling campaigns.
I decided that I'm going to join
the national TV of Pakistan as an anchorperson.
I became the National Goodwill Ambassador
for UN Women Pakistan and now I speak
for the rights of women, children.
I was featured in BBC 100 Women for 2015.
I'm one of the Forbes 30 under 30 for 2016.
So when you accept yourself the way you are,
the world recognizes you.
It all starts from within.
We have this amazing fantasy about life.
This is how things should work.
This is my plan it should go as per my plan.
If that doesn't happen, we give up.
I never wanted to be on the wheelchair,
never thought of being on the wheelchair.
This life is a test and a trial
and tests are never supposed to be easy,
so when you're expecting ease from life
and life gives you lemons,
then you make the lemonade
and then do not blame life for that.
It is okay to be scared.
It is okay to cry.
Everything is okay, but giving up
should not be an option.
They always say that failure is not an option.
Failure should be an option because when you fail,
you get up and then you fail and then you get up
and that keeps you going.
Embrace each and every breath that you are taking,
celebrate your life, live it,
don't die before your death.
Real happiness lies in gratitude,
so be grateful, be alive and live every moment.
– If you want to change the world
start off by making your bed.
If you made your bed every morning
you will have accomplished the first task of the day.
It will give you a small sense of pride
and it will encourage you to do another task
and another and another
and by the end of the day that one task completed
will have turned into many tasks completed.
Making your bed will also reinforce the fact
that the little things in life matter.
If you can't do the little things right,
you'll never be able to do the big things right
and if by chance you have a miserable day,
you will come home to a bed that is made,
that you made and a made bed gives you encouragement
that tomorrow will be better.
To pass SEAL training there are series of long swims
that must be completed.
One is the night swim,
before the swim the instructors joyfully
brief the students on all the species of sharks
that inhabit the waters off San Clemente.
They assure you, however,
that no student has ever been eaten by a shark,
at least not that they can remember.
But you are also taught
that if a shark begins to circle your position,
stand your ground, do not swim away,
do not act afraid and if the shark
hungry for a midnight snack darts towards you,
then summons up all your strength
and punch him in the snout
and he will turn and swim away.
There are a lot of sharks in the world.
If you hope to complete the swim,
you will have to deal with them.
So if you want to change the world,
don't back down from the sharks.
Over a few weeks of difficult training,
my SEAL class, which started with 150 men
was down to just 42.
There are now six boat crews of seven men each.
I was in the boat with the tall guys,
but the best boat crew we had was made up of little guys,
the Munchkin crew, we called 'em.
No one was over five foot five.
The Munchkin boat crew had one American Indian,
one African American, one Polish American,
one Greek American, one Italian American,
and two tough kids from the Midwest.
They out paddled, out ran, and out swam
all the other boat crews.
The big men and the other boat crews
will always make good-natured fun
of the tiny little flippers,
the Munchkins put on their tiny little feet
prior to every swim, but somehow these little guys
from every corner of the nation in the world
always have the last laugh.
sailing faster than everyone
and reaching the shore long before the rest of us.
SEAL training was a great equalizer.
Nothing mattered, but your will to succeed,
not your color, not your ethnic background,
not your education, not your social status.
If you want to change the world
measure a person by the size of their heart,
not by the size of their flippers.
The ninth week of training is referred to as hell week.
It is six days of no sleep,
constant physical and mental harassment
and one special day at the mud flats.
The mud flats are an area
between San Diego and Tijuana
where the rough water runs off
and creates the Tijuana sloughs,
a swampy patch of terrain where the mud will engulf you.
It is on Wednesday of hell week
that you paddle down in the mud flats
and spend the next 15 hours trying to survive
this freezing cold, the howling wind
and the incessant pressure to quit from the instructors.
As the Sun began to set that Wednesday evening,
my training class having committed
some egregious infraction of the rules
was ordered into the mud.
The mud consumed each man til
there was nothing visible but our heads.
The instructors told us we could leave the mud,
if only five men would quit, only five men,
just five men and we could get out of the oppressive cold.
Looking around the mud flat, it was apparent
that some students were about to give up.
It was still over eight hours til the sun came up,
eight more hours of bone-chilling cold,
of chattering teeth, and shivering moans
of the trainees were so loud,
it was hard to hear anything
and then one voice began to echo through the night.
One voice raised in song,
the song was terribly out of tune,
but sung with great enthusiasm.
One voice became two and two became three
and before long, everyone in the class was singing.
The instructors threatened us with more time in the mud
if we kept up the singing, but the singing persisted
and somehow the mud seemed a little warmer
and the wind a little tamer and the dawn not so far away.
If I have learned anything in my time traveling the world,
it is the power of hope, the power of one person,
a Washington, a Lincoln, King, Mandela,
and even a young girl from Pakistan, Malala.
One person can change the world
by giving people hope.
So if you want to change the world,
start each day with a task completed.
Find someone to help you through life.
Know the life is not fair
and that you will fail often,
but if you take some risks,
step up when the times are the toughest,
face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden,
and never ever give up.
If you do these things, the next generation
and the generations that follow
will live in a world far better
than the one we have today
and what started here will indeed,
have changed the world for the better.
– The wisest person I ever met in my life,
a third-grade dropout.
Wisest and drop out in the same sentence
is rather oxymoronic, like jumbo shrimp.
Like fun run, ain't nothing fun about it.
Like Microsoft Works, y'all don't hear me.
I used to say like country music,
but I've lived in Texas so long,
I love country music now, I, in fact, yeah,
I hunt, I fish, I have cowboy boots and cowboy,
y'all I'm a black neck redneck.
Do you hear what I'm saying to you?
No longer oxymoronic for me to say country music
and it's not oxymoronic for me
to say third grade and drop out.
That third grade dropout, the wisest person
I ever met in my life, who taught me
to combine knowledge and wisdom
to make an impact, was my father, a simple cook.
Wisest man I ever met in my life.
Just a simple cook.
Left school in the third grade
to help out on the family farm,
but just because he left school
doesn't mean a his education stopped.
Mark Twain once said,
"I've never allowed my schooling
"to get in the way of my education."
My father taught himself how to read,
taught himself how to write,
decided in the midst of Jim Crow-ism
as America was breeding the last gasp of the Civil War,
my father decided he was going to stand and be a man.
Not a black man, not a brown man,
not a white man, but a man.
He literally challenged himself to be the best
that he could all the days of his life.
I have four degrees.
My brother is a judge.
We're not the smartest ones in our family.
It's a third grade dropout daddy.
A third grade dropout daddy
who was quoting Michelangelo saying to us,
boys, I won't have a problem if you aim high and miss,
but I'm gonna have a real issue
if you aim low and hit.
A country mother quoting Henry Ford saying,
if you think you can
or if you think you can't, you're right.
I learned that from a third grade drop, simple lessons.
Lessons like these,
son you'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.
We never knew what time it was at my house
'cause the clocks were always ahead.
My mother said for nearly 30 years
my father left the house at 3:45 in the morning.
One day she asked him, why daddy?
He said maybe one of my boys
will catch me in the act of excellence.
I want to share two things with you.
Aristotle said you are what you repeatedly do,
therefore excellence ought to be a habit, not an act.
Don't ever forget that.
I know you're tough but always remember to be kind,
always don't ever forget that.
Never embarrass mama, mm-hmm,
yeah, if mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.
If daddy ain't happy, don't nobody care,
but you know, what can I tell you?
Next lesson, lesson from a cook
over there in the galley, son,
make sure your servants towel is bigger than your ego.
Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity.
Y'all might have a relative in mind,
you wanna send that to, let me say it again.
Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity.
Pride is the burden of a foolish person.
John Wooden coached basketball at UCLA for a living,
but his calling was to impact people
and with all those national championships,
guess what he was found doing in the middle of the week?
Going into the cupboard, grabbing a broom
and sweeping his own gym floor.
You want to make an impact, find your broom.
Every day of your life, you find your broom.
You grow your influence that way.
That way you're attracting people,
so that you can impact them.
if you're gonna do a job, do it right.
I've always been told how average I can be,
always been criticized about being average,
but I want to tell you something.
I stand here before you, before all of these people
not listening to those words,
but telling myself every single day to shoot for the stars,
to be the best that I can be.
Good enough isn't good enough if it can be better
and better isn't good enough if it can be best.
Let me close with a very personal story
that I think will bring all this into focus.
Wisdom will come to you in the unlikeliest of sources.
A lot of times through failure.
When you hit rock-bottom, remember this,
while you're struggling rock-bottom
can also be a great foundation
on which to build and on which to grow.
I'm not worried that you'll be successful.
I'm worried that you won't fail from time to time.
The person that gets up off the canvas and keeps growing,
that's the person
that will continue to grow their influence.
Back in the '70s to help me make this point,
let me introduce you to someone.
I met the finest woman I'd ever met in my life.
mm-hmm, back in my day we'd called her a brick house.
This woman was the finest woman
I'd ever seen in my life,
there's just one little problem.
Back then ladies didn't like big old linemen.
The Blind Side hadn't come out yet.
They like quarterbacks and running backs.
We're at this dance
and I find out her name is Trina Williams
from Lompoc, California and we were all dancing
and we're just just excited
and I decide in the middle of dancing with her
that I would ask her for a phone number.
Trina was the first one,
Trina was the only woman in college
who gave me her real telephone number.
The next day, we walked to Baskin Robbins Ice Cream Parlor.
My friends couldn't believe it.
This has been 40 years ago
and my friends still can't believe it.
We go on a second date and a third date
and a fourth date.
We drive from Chico to Vallejo
so that she could meet my parents.
My father meets her, my daddy, my hero.
He meets her, pulls me to the side and says,
"Is she psycho?"
But anyway, we go together for a year,
two years, three years, four years
by now Trina's a senior in college.
I'm still a freshman, but I'm working some things out.
I'm so glad I graduated in four terms,
Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan,
so now it's time to propose,
so I talked to her girlfriends
and it's California, it's in the '70s,
so it has to be outside, have to have a candle
and have to have some chocolate.
Listen, I'm from the hood,
I had a bottle of Boone's Farm wine,
that's what I had.
She said yes, that was the key.
I married the most beautiful woman
I've ever seen in my,
y'all ever been to a wedding
and even before the wedding starts you hear this,
How in the world?
And it was coming from my side of the family.
We get married, we have a few children.
Our lives are great.
One day, Trina finds a lump in her left breast.
Six years after that diagnosis,
me and my two little boys walked up to mommy's casket
and for two years my heart didn't beat.
If it wasn't for my faith in God,
I wouldn't be standing here today.
If it wasn't for those two little boys,
there'd have been no reason for which to go on.
I was completely lost.
That was rock bottom.
You know what sustained me?
The wisdom of a third grade dropout.
The wisdom of a simple cook.
We're at the casket, I'd never seen my dad cry,
but this time I saw my dad cry, that was his daughter.
Trina was his daughter, not his daughter-in-law
and I'm right behind my father about to see her
for the last time on this earth
and my father shared three words with me
that changed my life right there at the casket.
It would be the last lesson he would ever teach me.
He said, "Son, just stand.
"You keep standing, you keep stand,
"no matter how rough the sea, you keep standing
"and I'm not talking about just water.
"You keep standing no matter what,
"you don't give up."
and as clearly as I'm talking to you today,
these were some of her last words to me.
She looked me in the eye and she said,
"It doesn't matter to me any longer how long I live.
"What matters to me most is how I live.
I ask y'all one question,
a question that I was asked all my life
by a third grade dropout.
How you living, how you living?
Everyday asked yourself that question, how you living?
Here's what a cook would suggest you to live this way,
that you would not judge, that you would show up early,
that you'd be kind, that you make sure that
that servants towel is huge and used.
That if you're gonna do something,
you do it the right way.
That cook would tell you this,
that it's never wrong to do the right thing,
that how you do anything is how you do everything
and in that way, you will grow your influence
to make an impact, in that way,
you will honor all those who have gone before you,
who have invested in you.
Look in those unlikeliest places for wisdom.
Enhance your life every day by seeking that wisdom
and asking yourself every night, how am I living.
May God richly bless y'all.
Thank you for having me.

Simerjeet Singh, an international motivational speaker, inspires everyone to take charge of their own life, not leaning on others to support you but, lifting self to be the hero for your own destiny!
Self-reliance is the biggest gift one can pamper self with.
Who is in charge of your life?
Who makes the decisions that determine how you experience your life?
Regardless of who you are, the true answer to both questions is, “You are.”
You are the only person who can choose how you view the world and your specific situation. Making that choice is the first step to taking charge of your life.
