Was Neil Strauss Ever At The Playboy Mansion

In this world, there are a whole lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you think 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 think that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever issues you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion of the energy field which 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 without that, knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not 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 have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your 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, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t 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 pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very 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 of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You will 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. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that every 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 into the world is going to return. 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 is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your link to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is 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 that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
