Anthony Kiedis Book Barnes And Noble

In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever issues you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. How you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to come back. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
