Jordam Peterson On Eckhart Tolle

In this world, there are a whole 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 think that you can do everything as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever issues you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most 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 think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. 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
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re 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 celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d 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 fact is for me and for each individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on 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’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, 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 somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s 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’d 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It is 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 is already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to 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 soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
