“I see you, and I’m going to say the things that might make you uncomfortable because I’m not here to people-please you. I’m not here to go under the radar . . . I’m here to express divinity for the highest good, and if that means ruffling some feathers, so be it.”

“It might not be working now, but that’s because it’s evolving—it’s being called forward into a new evolution. And let me identify with the evolution instead of the waves here; let me view this perceived setback as a set-up for a greater expansion than I’ve ever experienced.”

“What you just offered — I would have given every penny I had, the shirt off my back, for someone to sit with me through what I was going through. And not try to fix me or change me, but just hold me and say ‘Brother, I got you. I’m not running. I’m here with you. Let’s work through this. Together, we can do this.’”

“The worse you feel, the closer you are to the breach there. The darker it is, the closer you actually are to your soul, the closer you actually are to touching something that’s going to completely transform your life.

You can evolve through love. You don’t have to only evolve through pain; you can also evolve through love.”
