"We had a very different episode plan for this week. We're going to talk about the future of education specifically college education with the president of Wesleyan where both went to college, and the president of Yuba were I went to college, but we couldn't stand by and watch what was transpiring in cities, all across the country, following the brutal killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis without addressing this issue does. Yes it's all compounded. The killings of Brianna Taylor and Ahmad Aubrey. They've all fired up a need in this country for not just conversation, but action and I think it's the right thing for us to also act in getting a nation with to really influential people who have a lot to say about this very moment time, and you can help us to not just understand what is happening begins the history of what has happened and also help us feel hopeful. Hopeful for the future, so we decided to invite Bishop TV Jake's on the show. He's just an extraordinary man, a good friend of yours bows and someone. I've interviewed through the years. How do you know Bishop Jakes Bishop? JAKES is legendary. You know his words from the House are ones that not only I listen to, but my mother listened to I. Don't think the Sunday goes by without hearing bishop. jakes booming voice in our home. But also I had him at my house in January. We held the dinner. With Hillary Clinton for vital voices, and he came and gave a beautiful prayer at the. And I, decided then, and there we should be best friends, and so I'm enforcing that now by calling in this favor. And also. Who I had not met until today, and she was quite extraordinary again. She's a friend of yours. All roads lead to bose by the way, but tell us have you know Opel. Opel I've always been impressed by from afar until a few years ago. When I met her in person she had been one of the CO founders as you said of black lives matter, an organization started seven years ago, but we are both of west African descent. She is Nigerian Ghanaian and we find ourselves in many of the same conversations, and now part of the same group. We call ourselves the west African voltron waves for short, and so there's a group of about seventeen of us who all hail from different parts of West Africa and we have conversations around so many. Many, things but Opel certainly has a powerful voice in this space, and it just made sense that if she's my sister in the group, then we might as well also invite to hear her voice in public. Well, the conversation was amazing, and we began by this really asking people to share how they were feeling after this very trying upsetting disturbing week, and Bishop Jake said he had never cried so hard for someone he didn't know and began by sharing with us where his head and hard are right now. The role Barberi torture. Relentless UNMERCIFUL behavior of it all was overwhelming. To see that view that in to understand that. There but for a camera. A PHONE CAMERA! We would never have gotten the truth about what happened. Truth is still being challenged by every. Legal trick imaginable. But somehow in a way when I heard George Floyd on the ground, screaming for his deceased mother. And saying I can't breathe a thought. He became emblematic of. An oppressed, society. That cannot breathe economically associated educationally so many areas were. the oxygen that would cause a underserved communities to serve has been with hail and We've been pressed down on some more than others, but we've been pressed down on in a way that He becomes an emblem. Of A of a group of people that are suffering, and it's not just by this Brown's. It's it's a poor whites. It's Middle America. It's so many people now that fit within that context of of not having access. To the Oxygen Opportunity Yes, yes, yes, I mean data says it's so poetically in fact. I have felt very much the same. This idea of or this image of being suffocated. A system that is not built to allow you to flourish, or even simply to live is what is probably most. viscerally felt. Right now although it happens again and again and again OPAL, we know they, of course you've also been in the conversation for quite some time. Having founded co founded black lives matter. What are your thoughts? How are you feeling currently? To be honest. I'm feeling really deeply paying. I am grieving for people I am scared about what the future holds. And I know that that is what so many of our siblings across the country are experiencing this moment. I feel similar to what you will, both just staring just witnessing. Another life being taken in front of you. For everybody to see in broad daylight in such A. Are Barrick. And unconscionable manner. My is so deeply disturbing. is so deeply disturbing and I. I'm sad for us. This continues to happen. It's been happening for generations, so we know we didn't get to this moment overnights. We know that there's a buildup. We know that it's been seven years since black lives, matter was first.
Suffering Is Part of the Journey
"I want the world to know that when I am in my own personal crisis or when I feel like I am questioning whatever is going on in my life. You are one of the first people I call and particularly now that my is gone. You've been such a solace in bomb for me in in difficult times and I'm wondering pastor Bishop Td. Jakes what's giving you strengthen? This moment you know I have of resilient faith in God and in humanity and that has kind of steered my compass through tough days and tough times and then I realized that everything comes as a schoolmaster teach a lesson and I wanted to believe to. Isn't all life experience here to show us who we are absolutely absolutely enter bring correction correction and redirection and I think this has been a co Viet. It should have been cooked correction team because it's a lot of correction to our values to our sociological understanding of ourselves. Collectively and individually. What do you mean by sociological understanding of ourselves so I think that we have become tribal We head divided into too many segments. Millennials boomers blacks whites Brown's Democrats Republicans us them globally not just nationally but globally. And and I think this Disease that attack without discrimination made us rethink? What is humanity I think that's part of it. I think that America needs to rethink. How much of our resources we have farmed out overseas that we found ourselves needing things that we couldn't manufactured but I've gotten away from manufacturer but I think that we also have to rethink how we value ordinary workers delivery keeper. That's that's by the sociological. Because I think for the first time people who were before invisible they were the invisible men and women to a lot of people in in in our country and other countries have now become have the title of essential this. Yes but here's my concern. I watched after nine eleven. We talked about the police officers and the firemen and they were Iro's erosion. We made a big fuss insane songs and cried and candles and all that but we didn't pay them anymore and they still couldn't afford to live in the cities they protect and so we get through by. I'm wondering what we're GONNA do about minimum wage of what we're GONNA do about their families and making it possible for the people who protect us in these big cities to be able to afford to live in the city they serve in. I mean all the people in conversations. I've had I tell you the one thing that people certainly do understand and have a great respect for teachers and think that they should be paid whatever they want their own kids lives have been permanently altered and that we will take that alteration and be more united as Tim Travers. Trying to do here today Do you think that that has occurred to enough people to have a shift in consciousness for awhile awhile? We get Amnesia quite quickly. And it's amazing when we're frightened how we come down to what matters most but how quickly we deviate from it once. We feel safe and secure geared and I know that sounds negative pessimistic. But but I think for sermons and seen too many funerals to do you much. Yeah I've seen it all before and But every now and then we get a booster shot. That kind of reminds us to humble yourself a little bit and not take so highly of yourself and not to always evaluate your worth by your net worth. There's there's so many lessons to be learned here. I know I mean if you just open our eyes we can see them as we endure this crisis. You wrote this on Instagram. Last week. Be sure to lead by faith and show people that it's possible you said to be joyful no matter the condition. Where are you finding joy right now? You know I have not spent this much time at home it years. Okay with just my wife and I in the house and nobody else and so that has given me an opportunity to appreciate simplicity Sometimes we're so driven by our responsibilities that we get away trump simplicity. That's one of the things I learned from you You know you walk into the Darnall your fruit and spelling your love a blade of grass. Now I can love a blade of grass. Yes Sir you've been so inspirational. You started out talking about me but you. You've also been very inspirational. 'cause I've got to see you behind the scenes at seed. What quality human being you are and I think that this creates an opportunity where we start to appreciate each other and say it to each other. The things that that gave us comfort during this time costs no money at all a kind word a quick. Tech's a you know a a moment. Facetime checking on elderly person left alone. checking on successful people. Because it didn't matter how successful you were. This was still devastating. And you still need a little love a little hershey kisses. You know you know you. Suspended those incredible in-person services at the Potter's House in Dallas. And you say this is a great time for us all to be able to re-instill our core values and for families to reconcile and also reconnect. I mean just like you and the first lady Sereda have been able to spend time together so many families haven't and for a lot of people that that ain't so sweet. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's true that that is true. It will either work for you or against you one of the things that I thought about the church part of it. Was You know when the teacher talks all through the classes but when the test comes she's always quiet and this was a testing moment and there was a time that we weren't able to draw from our traditional types of worship services because the test was in session? How much have we really learned? How much have we really grown? And even to those families who are lucked alone and they are combative. They will either find a way to work. Their way toward wholeness or toward a decision. That says we're better part than we are together. Not every story has a happy.

"Await you based on everything else that has brought you to this moment and Franz from young fifty people knitting socks. So you're saying exposure for translation exposure is important. Surround yourself with people you want to be like absolutely absolutely because when you surround yourself with people not only that you want to be like but who are doing what you want to do. Who Have the attitude attitude that you want to have it emanates from them it is contagious? Infection negative people have a contagious disease. And if you get around them you will catch it. You have to move around people who are positive upbeat. Who reinforced where? You're going. Who validate you and especially when you're fifty six because because we lived long enough to know what a gift every day every day is advantage every day of the waste a day one day? Well I see how easy it is to do that. You know because I turned sixty really was the number that caused me to have have the deepest reflection and pause because I could see the rest of the world making judgments about it and I and my own mind I didn't say rebuke but now I do rebuke ever rebuke it. I could see that if you allow the rest of the world to define what they think sixty is then. You will end up depressed abreast that every day you get to redefine what fifty six fifty seven fifty eight sixty seventy to sixty Z.. Three young the to put on your footprint and walk out the door selectquote Tigray audience eager. What your question? Where senior high? I I hear everything you said. And I received a bit of a breakthrough but I still have thaw doubts about like who who think that. I'm so grand. Who Am I to think that ac-accomplish great things but I want to but I get paralyzed with fear and L- let's talk about that? Let's talk about because this is a sunset at the people. Do not understand when people see other people who have great accomplishments. They assume that they have no fear. The reality is you got to feel the fear baby girl and do it anyway. Got The crew it anyway. If you are waiting for your feelings to lineup with your seasons your your life will always be on hold. You won't have to ask your emotions to give you permission to be who you were created to be everybody. It has some angst some fear some negative voice saying who are you but some people rebuke it and other people birth the difference between rebuking and birthing. It is how long you've nurtured the thought the thought comes like a seed in the womb of your your mind you can either incubated Terry it through three trimesters and birth it in your phone or you can say this is not my. It's not on my agenda NBA rejected and I'm GonNa Continue Omagh toll free so this is what I think people miss and I know you can certainly put this in religious terms but who are we really. I Know I love up that question when you said who am I to be somebody great. Who Am I to do? I think what you teach every Sunday and certainly are teaching through instinct is that we are connected to all that is great thank back. That's the point. You come from the source sir of creation that source of creation brought you here however you choose to feel about that to do something great now your great misses and what mine is what you came to do. Isn't what I came to. I think people always get confused particularly in this day in time looking at television and looking at the tweets in this ASSOC- lab and all that seeing what other people are doing the question. What you're asking us to do through instinct through transformational thinking is to recognize that we come from greatness from the source of all being is amazing? You can't have an amazing God odd and birth an unimposing child. What's amazing about? You are the mazing thing about you and fine and people who see the amazing this view now if you understand our commanders to be fruitful then you understand that we must be seed f-full. Yeah because you cannot be fruitful if you're not you have the seeds of greatness inside of you put in the right environment nurtured with the right narrative you can be as effective at sixty seventy eighty ninety as long as you wake up and I use is this expression is crude. Suck in air. If you woke up at you suck in air this morning. That air is energizing. Something you have left to do do do not waste it somebody else last night wishing they had the breath you have right now. So that's what we learned tonight to begin. Transformation you must peel back the layers and go to your core the core. You must be sure about who you are. Discover who you are found out who you are. Inventory your friends. Ask them what they get when they get you until you have a clear definition of yourself whether you're going after a job whether you're going on a date or whether you're trying to your children you cannot give people what you don't know you have so we knew you're mine line and get rid of limiting beliefs renewing your my hit the reset but if computers have to do with people have to do it hit the reset button and get rid of those negatives his belief and stop especially to women stop nurturing in your womb the seeds of negativity and birthing than because you are nurturers by nature. And you have to decide. Are you going to nurture something bad or you nurture something good surrounding yourself with people that you want to be like surrounding yourself with people you WanNa be like takes you to the next level because they are modeling the lifestyle that you are stepping into rather rather than emulating the lifestyle you're stepping away from okay and there's one more bishop you say we must all anchor our spirits. What does that mean you have to have something thing? That anchors you because life is crazy for me. It's my faith but every person has to have something that doesn't move when As my mother would say all hell is breaking loose. Because if you don't get caught up in the wave of the craziness going on around you and what you you cannot the effective if you're not stable if you're tossed to and fro by every current that comes I wanNA do exercise because we do a little exit I want to do I need some help. Suit you're GONNA help me I'm GonNa take you let me see come on. We'll take you because that's my girl right. They're gonNA take the green come up with. Okay Ah need another green. We're GONNA make a little and I wanted to hang hands and make a circle around because circle all the way around me okay. I'm trying to live in my life and these ladies represent all the things that are going on in my life and I just want you to just like. We're playing ring around the roses. I just want to start going around and my life is always moving. Nothing's ever stable. The kids are here then. They're gone that you're married then. I'm not good relationship than a bad relationship. Got A job glossed job entrepreneur pursuits going. Well not billing good keep on going now I have to decide. Am I going to go around with everything. That's happening and via unstable as Varmus. Can I get in the center of it. All I'd say Golic keeps on changing keeps on turning people learned about what is happening oil. I am able what is happening in taste. Good you get it. So the kids let life let circumstantial select business. Let Finances let everything change your goal is to be steadfast unmovable to be solid and in order to do that you cannot anchor on something. That's moving you can't anchor on. The kids are going to move. You can't ink on another person. They're going to move. You can't ink on a job is GONNA move. You've got anchor in faith in something that is solid and stable. So that as this turns out. Don't turn the ride. Life could a pretense instinct is in stores.

"You have given the power to the other person and even with yourself. You don't want I want to be in a position where you are imprisoned by who you are twenty years ago. What happened to you when you were seven? What happened to you when you were twelve? Some of us are still living out these doomed models of tripled mothers who taught us deformity in how we think and function so this is not about cutting down to what happened. It is not about cutting down to what you did or what they did is not even about what anybody did. It is getting to the core of who you are. 'cause you are best when you're at your core was created to be in what would that create it to be because you are the most powerful you d most powerful when you are authentic when you are not up shaped into some correct cure some mutation of who you really are and that's why we're so tired. Have you ever seen so many tired people in all you. The everybody's tired old exhausted twenty five year. Girls can't get out of the Beta the more you don't want we're tired because we're pretending it takes so much work to pretend in when you can really be who you are and find out where you fit and function from the place of after -bility. Then you stop working. You stopped wrestling. It's about finding your flow was finding your flow absolutely finding your flow and when you get in that. That's a life changing experience. How do we we get to the core? The most amazing thing is that we study everything but ourselves we walk into rooms and environments we watch other people what we emulate other people we wear their names. We wear their clothes. We wear their stuff. We fix our hair like we know everything about all the people we admire and nothing about ourselves else. Maybe you need to date you. Maybe you'll intubate news. Maybe you need to date you in such a way that you get to know who you are and you value what. You're giving away the green to the table and people have a hard time getting down to their core because some of us don't know who we are. We know what we all. We know what we have. We know the degrees. But we don't know who we are getting down to who you are me embodied questions. Like what motivates me. What what what? What is it that when I do that thing? I am impassioned when I do it. What makes a flame McKnight? What makes me leap out of the bed in the morning joining? What was it about being in this particular environment? That make me functional and fiery and invigorated. Because that's where your power years get to know that. What what do you add to the room? What do you add to the world and some of these questions means you also need to have some people around you who are very honest? Honest that you can trust it instead of these generic. Oh I'm so glad to see you and I'm always happy with what about me makes you happy because stats. thatt's say that we spend eighty percent of our time working at things that we're not really good at and only twenty percent of our time focusing on the area that is really the most those powerful and the most functional that is your core. Imagine if you gave eighty percent of your energy to that twenty percent of who you are instead of spending all all of your energy responding to other people's demands and situations and that's why everybody's so tired tight so let's use terrace story because show how someone no one gets to the core. I have struggled with substance abuse issues. For nearly twenty years. I've gone into to Rehab and relapsed. At least five times the trucks were up to be of being able to raise my own children children and be in their lives. I been clean nearly nine months. My fears about this time. Time is that I felt just as strongly about recovering and still managed to relapse the most important thing to me is keeping myself on the straight narrow that I can be that mother. I always dreamed of being whatever whatever it takes and whatever I need to to change I'm willing to do just that Willingness Terror is the power who who long it takes a lot doc to say I blew it I messed up. I got off the track. I WANNA get back on the track one of the things. I was dying to ask you when you were into the drug thing at its height. Wait what do you think because I believe that most people who end up in addictive behaviors do it to medicate some pain that they cannot live with the drug of choice becomes how you anesthetize the pain. So what were you trying to anesthetize. Well Bishop Jakes. I had so much trauma which included physical physical abuse outside the home the grief of losing my father at age three where I was the apple of his eye and when he died they'd nobody cared about me anymore and then. My behavior was outrageous. Because I didn't understand where my father went to so he was a disciplinarian. Rian as well as my world and you loved it and I loved them so mount. That's gone so now. My mother has to work and provide okay. Okay let's stop the story because that's all the story that's what she was saying. That's the story that's all happened. And we all have terrible things. I empathize empathize with you or feel that. So what you're saying is we have to let go of what. The story was no matter how tragic the story was. What would you say the less likely you got to step out of your history history of the into your destiny the and into your all of your energy and all of your emotions and all your creativity and all of your visions are looking backwards? Yeah yeah forward looking in the rear view mirror and you can't do that because you can't change what happened. Can you can only change. What's going going to happen what I'm saying? Yes and when you live in that space of yesterday it takes so much energy to keep that going that you're we're not available for today today. Call the role. You wouldn't be able to be present because you are present in the pain of have you pay the very fact that other people have gone through what you have gone through and made it out to heights of no is a sign that you can transform your luck. This is interesting terra. I can be a teacher for us all because I've done this too. When somebody ask you about your life you start going back to all the painful thing? We never talked about the great great things that happen. We always go to the most painful things and look at what happens to your energy when that starts to happen you start telling the story then you think of another worst thing and another worst I think in other words in it. You're you're in it that is just consumed you and that becomes where your energy goes. That's what you're saying absolutely valid thing. I I think is very very important that she brings us. She says when my father died nobody cared for me anymore and nobody paid any attention. Nobody loves me. Nobody paid any attention. The problem is that means. That's the model that you're working from. And the real problem is not that they.

"This is how my life goes. He has a book called instinct. The power to unleash leash your inborn dry. Now I have to tell you. I've been watching his sermons this year. I mean I get goosebumps pumps just talking about it. Those of you who are part of the hot house. I'm GonNa have to tell you that Bishop. JAKES literally hit a new level. I don't know what happened. But he hit a new level anointing nineteen this year and when I watched his message about transformational thinking I I I love it and I knew you. Everybody needed to hear this. So if you're at a crossroads in your life you're disappointed by how your life is going. You're worried that this may be as is good as it gets on the way for you rely. This is what I would. You should really record this class. You can play just a little bit every morning to jump start your day and begin your own transformation so I just want to know what happened to you this year. I don't know it looks like you stepped into another level of teaching and being thank you know. Once you get over in your fifties you start reflecting we start with a begin to look at my own life and started sitting down the right and I started started writing instincts. And it started gushing out on me discussing out of me and I have never been able to articulate that that compass to which I moved beyond the Holy Spirit itself. But how you think how you process how you reason and to be able to articulate it if we pass onto our children our stuff and don't pass sorn our thoughts they will run through our stuff so the greatest thing we give them how we think the interesting because Bishop Jake says we all have the power to transform into the highest and best representation of ourselves that is awaiting us is that the question is. Where do we start? And you know what I love. Is that anyway. Favorite Bible verses is transformed by the renewing a new man. How transformed by the renewal of your mind? And that's what you're really talking about. That is exactly what I'm talking about because the reality of the matter is any other place that you try to transform from is not going to work you have to change the way you think about the circumstance situation Asia. We spent so much money changing the way we look the way we address where we live. We changed all outside but until you change the inside you really not GonNa Change Your Life and so I'm excited about having the opportunity not just changing your life released to your behavior and your character and all of that. That's very important to and for me that God something but even changing your career what you focus on what you what you put your energy in who you hang around what you're GonNa do with this section of your life. That's that's that's all I got because all of us are in the process of evolving. All of us want to live our life Torah fullest and highest potential. We do not want to get to the end of our lives and wonder what if we want to as the thing goes die empty to have poured out the very richards of yourself and I want to show them how to do that. You have the floor but one of the one one of the stories that I heard you telling you sorry. I was so moved by the story about the dog and the legs can can. Can you just share that before we get started. The dog with a female dog dog who had been hidden an accident and her back legs were broken and she was pregnant and she birth puppies and oddly enough. The puppies were fine. They were they were completely -pletely normal except for the fact they drug their hand leaks just like their mother and the amazing thing about the puppies who drug their legs as alleged. We're completely lately fine. But if what you see model in front of what you see in any way deformed or deranged your your concept of normalcy is defined by what you see. It is hard to be what you have not seen. It's about rounding yourself with good things surrounding yourself with aspirational things. So that you can see the highest part of yourself because else we have to have it modeled. It's not enough to have it preach to us or top tourist or anything we have to have it. Modeled demonstrated what does this look like. What does it feel like? You can get information from people but the real inspiration that transforms her life needs to be modeled in front of you so many times we get a degree green something and then when we get into it. We don't like it. We get a job when we did the job. We don't like it because we have not had it modeled in front of us and the problem with the puppy. Happy is that he had a bad model and many of us are suffering from the models. We take it away. I'm GonNa let did you have a seat over here. Bishops Freedom the I think one of the things that we do not realize how much has been laid on us about other people. The whole body auty of our experiences are summarized things we've read and the things we've seen and the things we've been taught and I want you to think this way that that failure. Oh you're is a learned behavior. You are not create it to fail nowhere. You created misallocated. There is a strategy in mind. Where when you find the place where you fit the best you are the most functional where you fit the best most of us have been crammed into what people needed us to be? And and we have been responders reacting to what the needs were what the kids wanted. What mother had in mind what your sister had in my what your boyfriend wanted? What's your husband husband wanted? This is what your girlfriend wanted. And after a while you get sometimes twenty thirty forty years old you start saying wait a minute. I've been everybody but me. So so I've got a little illustration it looks like. I'm getting ready to make a cobbler or something but I'm really not. I've got these apples here because I want you to understand understand about this apple. That's this apple right. Year is really an orchard. It is an orchard. Come on with it. The problem is in order to get the potential its highest and best potential. You have to get beyond the peelings and all the things that have been placed on top of it now. Imagine imagine the apple is you and you're trying to get your orchard out but there's all of this surrounding you that are are causing you not to be who you were created to be the transformational potential of this apple is never in its peeling. It's never in the meat of the Apple. Oh it is it is only when you are able to get it down to the core the core essence will you touch the core and you get down to the seed. You have been gotten to the place where you can find his fullest and best potential. You either have to cut to it or rock to it. So many people wrote to it. They wrote two things go so bad so long so terrible situation crisis. They don't come to themselves till they're in jail or they're strung out or they're overwhelmed or they're suicidal and they rot to the core but what we want to do is cut to the core. You WanNa cut to the core. You want to peel away all the things you have had to be so that you can get down to the core of what you were created to be. I'm on and see at this court in this. Core are the seeds of greatness. It's not just one tree but many treats and what I want you to understand where we start talking about. Transformational thinking is that I want you to stop thinking from a place of pain. Stop thinking from a place of what happened to you and start thinking from a place of who you are not not what you did. I wish I hadn't done it. Oh I'm so sorry about the suburban all sorts of bad prison never be able to get up on my look what I did. Look what I did did look what I did. Look what they did to me look what he did look what she did. Look at how much power you're giving away. You allow the assignments. It's an actress of other people to determine your destiny..
Transform Your Life with Bishop T.D. Jakes
"Jake says we all have the power to transform into the highest and best representation of ourselves that is awaiting us is that the question is. Where do we start? And you know what I love. Is that anyway. Favorite Bible verses is transformed by the renewing a new man. How transformed by the renewal of your mind? And that's what you're really talking about. That is exactly what I'm talking about because the reality of the matter is any other place that you try to transform from is not going to work you have to change the way you think about the circumstance situation Asia. We spent so much money changing the way we look the way we address where we live. We changed all outside but until you change the inside you really not GonNa Change Your Life and so I'm excited about having the opportunity not just changing your life released to your behavior and your character and all of that. That's very important to and for me that God something but even changing your career what you focus on what you what you put your energy in who you hang around what you're GonNa do with this section of your life. That's that's that's all I got because all of us are in the process of evolving. All of us want to live our life Torah fullest and highest potential. We do not want to get to the end of our lives and wonder what if we want to as the thing goes die empty to have poured out the very richards of yourself and I want to show them how to do that. You have the floor but one of the one one of the stories that I heard you telling you sorry. I was so moved by the story about the dog and the legs can can. Can you just share that before we get started. The dog with a female dog dog who had been hidden an accident and her back legs were broken and she was pregnant and she birth puppies and oddly enough. The puppies were fine. They were they were completely -pletely normal except for the fact they drug their hand leaks just like their mother and the amazing thing about the puppies who drug their legs as alleged. We're completely lately fine. But if what you see model in front of what you see in any way deformed or deranged your your concept of normalcy is defined by what you see. It is hard to be what you have not seen. It's about rounding yourself with good things surrounding yourself with aspirational things. So that you can see the highest part of yourself because else we have to have it modeled. It's not enough to have it preach to us or top tourist or anything we have to have it. Modeled demonstrated what does this look like. What does it feel like? You can get information from people but the real inspiration that transforms her life needs to be modeled in front of you so many times we get a degree green something and then when we get into it. We don't like it. We get a job when we did the job. We don't like it because we have not had it modeled in front of us and the problem with the puppy. Happy is that he had a bad model and many of us are suffering from the models. We take it away. I'm GonNa let did you have a seat over here. Bishops Freedom the I think one of the things that we do not realize how much has been laid on us about other people. The whole body auty of our experiences are summarized things we've read and the things we've seen and the things we've been taught and I want you to think this way that that failure. Oh you're is a learned behavior. You are not create it to fail nowhere. You created misallocated. There is a strategy in mind. Where when you find the place where you fit the best you are the most functional where you fit the best most of us have been crammed into what people needed us to be? And and we have been responders reacting to what the needs were what the kids wanted. What mother had in mind what your sister had in my what your boyfriend wanted? What's your husband husband wanted? This is what your girlfriend wanted. And after a while you get sometimes twenty thirty forty years old you start saying wait a minute. I've been everybody but me. So so I've got a little illustration it looks like. I'm getting ready to make a cobbler or something but I'm really not. I've got these apples here because I want you to understand understand about this apple. That's this apple right. Year is really an orchard. It is an orchard. Come on with it. The problem is in order to get the potential its highest and best potential. You have to get beyond the peelings and all the things that have been placed on top of it now. Imagine imagine the apple is you and you're trying to get your orchard out but there's all of this surrounding you that are are causing you not to be who you were created to be the transformational potential of this apple is never in its peeling. It's never in the meat of the Apple. Oh it is it is only when you are able to get it down to the core the core essence will you touch the core and you get down to the seed. You have been gotten to the place where you can find his fullest and best potential. You either have to cut to it or rock to

I didn't realize it. How everyone I hit my twenties. I realized the weight of what really happened to me when I tell you sometimes you don't know too. You know? And that could be the whole name of the podcast, we close his thing out in benediction because you just don't know until you know, I was in a toxic relationship. And I did not see it as toxic or abusive until I was out of the relationship. And what is it that desensitized as I think the survival instinct kicks in and once viable instinct kicks in you become guarded. You do whatever you have to do to get through the moment. You don't think about the pain? You don't think about the hurt? You don't assess your Daymond, and then you get down the road, and you have these moments where we're like Ouch that hurt and that was painful, and that's when we begin to realize that that thing really affected me more than I really thought kinder- says was inappropriately touched as a child may be Levin. Twelve thirteen crazy thing is I didn't realize it until my adult years when I knew that inappropriate touches were a thing. As like it came to me in a dream, not every time, I see my fin Dr one screen kinder-. I want to encourage you to get some. Hair p and e you know, there's opportunities in communities oftentimes to have some support groups. There's free housing available. If you're not able to afford it. But you gotta definitely process that no matter when you find out and this is a word for somebody. No matter when you find out that you have been traumatized. It's never too late to heal that part of you because I think that when we become awakened to that trauma that that means that that traumas has the ability to show up in other areas of our life, and until we assess and he'll in gain, forgiveness and perspective. And whatever else we need in order to make that trauma lose its power than that trauma will always have some type of power over us, Victoria, Taylor. My cousins touch me, and I was scared to talk, but I never held it against them. Love them too much. Yeah. I mean, I think that kind of gives reason to why if you know these victims, and what they're saying is true part of the reason why you don't. You know, when you're younger, you wait to say something because you're still processing what happened to it yourself. And that's something that we got a really be sensitive to Kim. So okay. How about this guys? I love you the delegation insurance so many testimonies. You know, what I always find like? I don't know just like amazing about women evolve in women connecting in being transparent in general like it just gives another woman, you know, another person can notify listen the ability to say like, wow, I'm not the only one who found out late. I'm not the only one who didn't wanna tell. I'm not the only one who waited until I was in my fifties to discover what it really happened to me. And there is something to be said about realizing, you aren't alone. And so if you're in need of some encouragement, some support may be the art Kelly thing in the Michael Jackson thing kind of being public has brought up some of your own traumas and some of your own abuses. I want to encourage you to definitely get connected. Maybe go through these comments. And kinda just realize that you aren't alone into come up with a plan to heal because awareness is one thing and intention -ality. The he'll is another K.

"Wade Robson in James safe Chuck in director, Dane read, the studio audience was made up of sexual abuse revive as well as their supporters and family members when for who revealed on her talk show decades ago that she was sexually abused. When she was young said reads documentary did an excellent job of illustrating, which he had always tried to explain child sexual abuse is also about seduction. So I read a lot of people who were upset because Michael. Jackson is not here to defend himself. And we just feel white. You know, Oprah should've against maybe kinda held it down for him. Because she was like, I think there were any was France. I don't know shimmy says Oprah does need a rescue. That wasn't a good look Tia B's Alameda Oprah love me, some Oprah. But she's cancelled. She would never do that to Harvey Weinstein. You I think she would you don't think. So Tiffany says I wash Oprah's interview, she gets rescue her intentions were good. Okay. At Namm gonna be honest. I didn't see it. I just saw the I didn't see the actual documentary that Oprah did. I just saw the. The documentary that was actually on HBO. And so, you know, I don't know. DJ Johnson says she needs to interview the family as well TI Rene says, no, I couldn't watch it leave Michael alone. Now, this is what I've noticed though, you know, a lot of us want Michael to be left alone in this situation. And I don't know. On whole no vanita says now MJ was acquitted wasn't ARA. Art Ellie was acquitted. The first time, I don't know. I don't know she thinks his I couldn't watch it. But they all need rescuing because they all need healing.

But not what what made it might a good. Look, can you help me because I haven't seen it and Siam's beacon somewhat ignorantly. But I saw I read the articles about it. I haven't actually seen it. I watch the documentary. But but why wasn't it a good? Look. Shelly says it wasn't Oprah's story. She just did the interviewing teddy exits acquitted doesn't mean innocent and she will seek answers about 'em. Jane, Laura Wallace. We've been talking about this in groups because it was so intense in troubling because he was such an icon and gave an appearance of innocence. You know? I was thinking because one of the things I saw on the documentary is one of the victims or alleged victims. I guess gave a very detailed account of how the abuse happened to him so much. So that it was like Crin cringe-worthy. Right. But I think it's I think part of the reason why maybe people were like, oh, my gosh that's been much is because like when we think about someone being sexually abused. We don't we just put a blanket a blanket idea of what that means. And to have a man talk about inspe- acidification what he says happened to him in may be a bit much. I guess, but it is his truth. You know, even if it's not a truth that we can all agree on. And I think that when we hear the word sexual abuse. We have to see it as traumatic in intense like what he detailed like, maybe it's not true for him. But I just think for other sexual abuse victims like. Is not just this blanket thing that happened to them. There was a detailed account of trauma that took place that forever changed in shape them into understand the weight of that internet. I guess is what I'm saying. Let's not become so comfortable with the word sexual abuse that we lose the the real harsh reality of the weight that those moments are in people's lives..

What is that? What is that that made our IMF isn't now that we realized this availability of the consequences? And so what is that delegation? Help me understand. What's happening August Williams's if he's convicted or is guilty rescue. Also, oh, I'll guess you bring up an interesting point. We're going to put this rescue in the pending category.

He had a squad behind him, and he was walking with purpose and intention -ality. Like, he knew something that was gonna blow the whole case.

Do you guys wanna rescue Jesse now that he's got sixteen counts of felonies? Because I know we were all for him being, you know, paying for any possible lies at may have been told. But when we found that it was sixteen counts as a lot of us were like, okay, he lied, but that's too much. Do y'all wanna rescue Jesse now? Whether let's say, hypothetically speaking, he did lie. Let's just say hypothetically speaking, allegedly, Al. Know who knows don't know by. No, but him in the Lord. Okay. But let's just say he did like is sixteen counts. Too much. Let me tell you. Why? I don't think sixteen counts f I I was like sixteen counts is a lot as a lot. Okay. He told a lab that's a lot. But let me tell you. At remembered though, when folks lot of me out on just call it just one big O laugh when folks Ladda me, I break down everything they lied about. So I you lied about where you was. Then you lied about who you was with. Then you lied to me when I called you checked on, you know, so on one hand I understand that it was one big lie. But I can kinda understand why we are being penalized for every because that's why he got sixteen counts. It was one live. Right. But I think they charged him for every lie. He told and. That excessive is that vindictive. Or is it right on the money, and in before you answer, and before you think about it at as once you to remember when y'all count up folks Lasse, okay, Britney Dini's, Mary says, add is one annot why he was on Chan gel. If we knew the answer to that who adult even I don't even not adult. I wanna say that he wasn't lying. But then there's so much evidence. Ain't he was like, I don't I literally don't even know. But as just one no is sixteen counts too much. Rhonda's says that was excessive but a lie is still allowed to nieces. Wow. He goes extinct counts. I dunno at ino-. It was that bad year. They gave him a lot. So if my brother was like, our that's way, and I ordered a Turkey sandwich, and they found that he ordered a tuna sandwich charge. Okay. I don't know if that was one of the lies, but I'm saying every lie he told in that story is one he got charged for Holly Wolford said they are making an example out of him. Valerie says I think it was excessive especially because it was a crime that caused no harm to anyone but himself breeze his six councils. Wow, the rescue also. Okay. So we going rescue on K.
