117. Your Unique Power: 3 Ways to Tap Into Your Greatest Gifts

Speaker 1

00:00

People. So often say, you know, how do I find what I meant to do in this world? Once I find one, I meant to do, then I will be happy and I always say, no, go and do go and explore. Allow yourself to do everything be hungry in that way. And then, once you're doing it, then it's revealed. It's never like, you're going to have your calling, and then you're going to, no, it doesn't work like that. Welcome to the spiritually hungry podcast, whoo LIVE edition from Miami. Very excited to be here, we are going to start with some stories because Michael begs and pleads for stories.

Speaker 2

00:51

That's an inside joke for those of you.

Speaker 1

00:55

So the first story is about a girl named Bailey, it wasn't Oklahoma. She lives with her parents and her two sisters. And she loves to feel the wind on her back and in her face and all around her. When she jumps on her trampoline, she loves getting her nails. Done with her, mom. She loves playing baseball with her father, and she's a happy girl. But she doesn't love is school because it's very hard for her to read and to write and although what she has in common with their sisters is sneaking downstairs for midnight snacks. Snacks, by the way, our kids never did that. I have they were too scared, right? Dude, my name is.

Speaker 2

01:45

True story.

Speaker 1

01:48

What you always do that your let me tell the story and then I will tell you the punchline. Okay.

Speaker 2

01:55

Well I know at the end of the story it's like it's real.

Speaker 1

01:58

So her sisters love school, and so she compared herself. Why you know why isn't she like them? She really struggled with reading, and she got the diagnosis of Dyslexia and it didn't make her actually feel any better about her difference. She just had a name for it now. Is a really great child. He's ate. His name is Jake, and he loves to play with his friends. He loves to race, sometimes he's the fastest runner on the playground, he loves pizza and hamburgers and ice cream. He doesn't love celery that much. Green beans, yuck, but he gets on, with all of his friends. What his friends don't know? Is that he has a secret? And the secret is that he can only see out of one of his eyes and more than that. Not only, can he just see out of one eye? One eye is just completely missing and in place with the glass eye, so he's worried that if his friends find out, they will say, do act in ways that make him feel hurt or uncomfortable or rejected. So, he lives with the secret is another child named Kayden, and he is super gifted and smart and so smart. He attends a special school for gifted children. He's also deaf. And he gets on with all of his friends, they're very inclusive very supportive but sometimes he feels left out for instance if a child who is out of his range of vision is telling a joke, and he hasn't read his mouth, or it's not and sign language. And he sees everybody laughing, and he doesn't know why it's a difference, he's not really excited about even though the whole class learned sign language to make him feel good on some level of bothered him that they had to learn it to make him feel good. And all of these stories are true stories. Michael yay. These parents have written in and shared them with us. And it's one of three of many, many stories that inspire me continue to inspire me. Hopefully, inspire all of you. And that's really what we set out to do with the book, The Gift of being different was to help people children parents who still have not accepted or felt comfortable with their differences to reframe them. And to really use As a source of strength and power, her logo agrees. So I want to go back to Bailey, right? The little girl is.

Speaker 2

04:26

Dislike these Dad. It's something. We were actually talking a little bit about on the car, ride over here. Which those are you here? No, these aren't very short, car rides, one place together in South Florida, but that idea that, you know, there're many levels to accept him.

Speaker 1

04:40

Right. Oh wait. I think that's only acceptable here because it's sunny and nice. Like if you had to drive like that in New York like it's in Florida. Yeah, Miami Boca. About it's all, you know, just drive in New York, you feel like pop the horn, the crazy rage. Anyway maybe I didn't mind it because it was sunny and nice.

Speaker 2

04:56

Yes, that is different levels of acceptance person can even accept intellectually that this part of them, that is different from. Everybody else is good, is okay, but what you're talking about? Anything is the both of the goal of the book and really a goal for each one of us, each one of us in our lives, is to come to a place where we not only Accepted we even feel that. It's okay. But we embrace it and are proud of it. And that is a very long distance for most people to make from the part of them that they want to hide to the part of them that they then accept it. But most (importantly) than actually embrace it and proud of it. And maybe this is something we're going to share with one of the things that always makes us exciting with Abigail, is it has been a process for her as well to come first before diagnosis. Then And diagnosis of Dyslexia, not only to accept it, not only to embrace it, but to get to a place where she's proud of it. And that I think is the ultimate place that we each need to get to, with our own superpower.

Speaker 1

06:01

And by the way, everybody, if they ask themselves the question, and they devote themselves to doing the work has access to the superpower, often we wait for somebody to say, wow, you're really powerful, you're really amazing or look how you do this or that it's up to us to Identify what that is, and we have access to it if we're willing to just be a little kinder to ourselves that voice in our head that says you're not good enough or look how that person did it. And you can't even do that, and we attach all kinds of things to it. Whether it's our age, or whether it's our life situation, or how our childhood, right? That's why I can't do it. And all of that is just a roadblock to success and to your ultimate strength. Absolutely. So back to Bailey. So when she received the book, her mom, read it first and Bailey was still at school and her mom, cried and cried when she read the book, and then when Bailey got home and her sister got home, the sisters, the older sister read the book to her, and she started crying herself and her story is that in her school, they said, you know, you're so you're unteachable basically, they didn't have the wherewithal to help her and The support system in the school. So they said you're really beyond the point of where we can help you. So she thought she was stupid. And she thought there was no way out of that when she read the book, she ran around the house after she wiped the tears, and she said, Mama. There's someone just like me in the world. There's someone just like me. So Bailey now like Abigail is seeing her difference as a superpower, and she's using it as a source of strength, Jake. So, now, every time he had a gymnastics lesson, a soccer lesson, the mom would quietly go over to whisper to the teacher saying, you know, he can't see out of his right eye. So just be careful, make sure, you know, you're aware of that. After the mother read, the book she sat down with Jake, and she said, you know, I think maybe if you feel that you need support, why don't you tell the teacher or the instructor, if you feel like you need that extra help or that they need to have that awareness. So he started to do that and then after that felt really good, he decided to take the book to school. He read it to the whole class. And after he read the book to the class, he told them all about his superpower, which is that he has a glass eye, and they were so inclusive. They were so accepting, and he now it's just part of who he is and it's amazing. And that wow with one eye he can do what people can do with two eyes.

Speaker 2

08:36

And I think that's so any like Monica said that these are two of the stories that came since the book came out but really what it does and it's so beautiful is that it gives Children, but even adults, right? The courage to really Embrace those parts of us that are different or even challenging at times. And it's something and again, we have the Merit to meet people at different stages of their lives. I can't even count the amount of adults, and adults. I mean, even people in their 70s and 80s who are still carrying with them, even into their 80s, something that challenge them, and they were child's on the a challenge them see, Six years ago. And I think maybe one of the greatest Gifts of this book and really, the work, the spiritual work in general, is to take all of that previous pain, or challenge the not only become accepting of it. But really embrace it with joy. And again, we have seen it in again. I think to think about the story with Jake with we both naturally know the family, and we know the child A child of that age to have the courage to come to, not only share it with his with.

Speaker 1

09:44

His class.

Speaker 2

09:46

But also to really see it as something. That makes him better, that makes him stronger. It's really beautiful to say.

Speaker 1

09:54

I think that people make the mistake in life that they're going to grow out of their situation, or they're feeling like oh, you know, when you turn 40 then you know, you're not going to accept things used to accept and eat that some level of it, but if you want to really like take it off, Charts, Next Level you need to say, okay, this is who I am and the parts that you said we're not okay about me or that other person gave me a look when. I mean, people have actually said to me that, why did you have the audacity to have an opinion when nobody else had one? I mean I have had people tell me that, and I am like, well, you're miserable, and I am not in majan if you had actually had your own opinion, you'd be so happy today, right? So I think that again, it's just to go to that place of what is it that I am so afraid that if people see they're going. To reject me, that's an indication of where you need to start and revealing your superpower. And then we go to Kayden and special boy with a hearing impairment. And he came up with a great list of his own of what his super powers are. And that is that. Well, we can't communicate underwater. He can sign. He can also sign with his puppy. Ricky, which is awesome. He can sleep without Interruptions. That's a pretty awesome. Doesn't get annoyed by the cell phone, pretty cool as well. So.

Speaker 2

11:18

Cool like to see that list.

Speaker 1

11:21

All right, that's amazing, pretty amazing. And I think when we think about super powers, right? I am sure maybe now at this point, some of your thinking like well what's my superpower? You know, and I shared a little earlier like I get that question all the time. What's your super power and mine doesn't sound like quite as obvious, perfectionism, empathy, and I Can impact those but perfectionism sounds really great like, wow, you're perfect. What does it want to be perfect? It's impossible. It's a, it's a really a dead end and it's a great path to misery because you're never going to achieve what you're trying to achieve. And it was really almost the end of me because I like to do everything fully and completely and wholly. So, having something like an eating disorder and being a perfectionist is really bad thing. If you're trying to meet that goal, but if you transform it to us, A power then you can say, okay while perfect is ridiculous. I am going to live a messy life, but I am going to put that discipline of taking it as far as I can write. There's still a part of that energy, if you translate it and change it to positive. It's very powerful in terms of empathy growing up, I felt very judged and very misunderstood and I didn't feel like anybody really understood what I was going through and I could have chosen to be a Victim about it or I could choose to change that and say, okay, I don't need approval, I don't need to be recognized. I only need to hear myself, right, but then I wanted to offer that to other people, so superpower. But when we think about superpowers, we often go to, you know, Superman. He can leap tall buildings in a single leap he can jump, right? Spider-Man can throw webs from his fingers, I mean, but, but did you remember in the movie right? At It was very messy, he's like hitting himself in the head, he's falling on his head to, and then he mastered that. Or if you think about Luke Skywalker, he's a Jedi master who can really wield a lightsaber without like, it's nobody's business, but super powers. Really are the places that we won't look places that were uncomfortable with its, where we are most unique and most different. So, I want you to take a moment and just think about, what is your superpower? What how are you? Different. And how do you feel about being different? And if you had pen and paper, I would have you write that down. I do not want you to take your phones out because you will be so distracted that I won't get you back here. But just think about that for a moment because that's how change really occurs.

Speaker 2

13:53

Not necessarily one thing. But like you said, I think it has to be something that initially you might have perceived as the worst thing we're seeing or a challenge.

Speaker 1

14:04

So and then I would love to listen to me by the way.

Speaker 2

14:07

Sorry, your for our listeners and I will save you buddy. Here with us in Miami to really think about it. Because before we give them that moment to think, One of the most important kabbalistic teachings is that each one of us is unique and that uniqueness comes with a responsibility that the world has waited for millions of years for me, for you to come into this world. And the reason it was so important that I come into this world where that each one of us comes into this world is not to do. What others do not to do. Even better. What others do. But to reveal that, you Meek light that has never been before and can never be after me. And if you look at your life in that way, right? It because it's so easy for us to get lost in the Stream of everybody else. Oh, everybody else is doing this. I am going to do this better. I am going to find a way to do this, even better. That's by the way, okay? To do in many areas of our lives but when it comes to the core of who we are, and the core of the reason for which we came into this world, Must discover. What is unique about me and Endeavor to reveal it because that's the only reason I am here.

Speaker 1

15:25

But that's the thing, right? It's going. The thing that's most powerful about each of us is going to be the most concealed because that's the work we have come to do. Like, if you look at a diamond, right? It doesn't come out shining and beautiful and something you want to wear. Or look at it comes really concealed ugly covered and you have to go through great force and pressure to transform into something else. And that's really a great metaphor for what we're supposed to do. Because As you're saying the thing that is most unique, most great, our brightest light that exists within each person has to be covered and it's our life's work to reveal.

Speaker 2

15:59

That, right? So I know we're going to share a little bit about how to discover that in reveals it. But I do want to underscore this point because I think we might have heard this before met her tonight for the first time or listeners. Hear it for the first time. But it's a difference huge difference between knowing that or hearing that and truly embracing that the fact that. What I have to bring into this world, is something that can never be brought by anybody else of the billions of souls that have lived or that will ever live. And I think that may be one of the most important starting points to begin to both ascertain. What is my superpower? And then most importantly, endeavored to reveal, it is to really, really accept. That I am so unique that no soul like me has ever existed or can ever exist and that I must make sure that whatever that uniqueness is about me. And we call it our super power, and we understand that it comes from those parts of us that are, as you said, concealed challenging, the has to be our life's work, amongst everything else important that we do.

Speaker 1

17:08

That's why I love stories, like, I am thinking about Harry Potter, any have you always going to have The opposition, you're going to have to go to the places that scare you, right? It's like go to that dark place. Open the dark door, where the dragons, and there's a hole in the ground, whatever. And when you do that then the lights revealed suddenly understand. It's the same thing with our process in life. We have to go to the places that scare us. We have to be willing to see the parts of ourselves that we really feel uncomfortable about you know insecure about have self-doubt about and say okay well that is the light, right? That is the way that's the path. That's showing me which way the Learn. And once you go there, even though it's scary, even though it's uncomfortable even though you will be full of doubt. In that way, know that it's an opening for you to reveal the beauty that resides inside of you that you're meant to show to the world. It's like it people. So often say, you know, how do I find what I meant to do in this world? Once I find what I meant to do, then I will be happy and I always say, no, go and do go and explore, allow yourself to do everything be hungry in that way. And then once you're doing it, then it's Revealed. It's never like you're going to have your calling and then you're going to, no. It doesn't work like that. You have to absolutely go to those places that are the most difficult, most terrifying that you're kind of curious about going back there. Right. We're gonna keep going back, that's the problem. Most people try once they failed they even I spoke to somebody days like you know, It was quoting Thomas Edison which I have quoted as well. I think he failed like a hundred and forty-nine times or something and the 150th, and he was like, okay most of us this guy said six times, and he was like, oh it's just not for me. I feel it. Six times clearly. I am not meant to do this in this world. No, it's like a trick that happens. But does anybody have their superpower identified? Now?

Speaker 2

18:56

You want me to share?

Speaker 1

18:57

I always want somebody to share. I am also dyslexic. And the way I compensated as a child was, I became very Visual and very creative as a result. And I think of ways to do things that most people don't initially see. So I think outside of the.

Speaker 2

19:13

Box, beautiful, absolutely, thank you.

Speaker 1

19:17

People want to share more, they will just step in. I think where we were going with, with that process is something called Tycoon. And I know that those Who are familiar with Kabbalah understand what? Tikkun is but maybe not in the sense of a superpower, but we will just start with this but in life, right? If you're in a relationship and you want to exit the relationship because it's that person's Falls. They are not happy. Then you start the next relationship. And what do you know, you're in the relationship with a different person? But same story or you have a job and you don't like being micromanaged and you feel like you can't explore. Or and then you go to a different job and there you find the same story again. And so she can we understand to be something we definitely need. It's super uncomfortable and it's a story that follows us throughout our lives until we demand Something else, and we create something else from that and it leads straight into superpowers because that's basically what a superpower.

Speaker 2

20:19

Is. Absolutely, and it goes back to what we were saying before about it being that part of us that we initially see as a challenge or even as a — there's a very important teaching that says, that in our lives, we know there're two forces in the world in each one of us, when that is, pushing us to grow. Grow and to reveal ourselves or light to the world and the other one that's trying to hinder us this trying to stop us from revealing our light and the capital is taught that — force will allow us to do everything. Even important things, even positive things. There's only one thing that it will fight with all of its might against and that is to reveal what is unique to me. So sometimes you know, even those of us who know most of us are good people. All we're trying to do good things, and we will gravitate towards the, the easier positive things to do the easier things to accomplish and just shy away. Just one thing and I, you know, I can look at my life. I have done a million things. This is one thing I just don't know. Don't want to touch when area of myself that I don't want.

Speaker 1

21:30

To end the center part.

Speaker 2

21:31

Necessary. How do these are the most important is that it's the only, the only point, it's the only reason we're. Yeah, and the reason it took me so confusing as a person can look at their life and to look at all this. I am doing so. Oh much, I have accomplished this and that accomplish that's not the question of the soul. The question of the soul is that unique thing that must be a challenge for you? Have you attacked that and that is going to be the most challenging that is going to be the most difficult but is going to be the only purpose for which we came into this world. And the capital is often referred to that process that the soul goes through when it leaves this world and questions that are asked and it's important to remind ourselves. Sometimes, you know, there's that concept of Memento Mori where you were sometimes it is inspiring to think about leaving this physical world, and as again, the tsar and the capitalist speak about the questions that our soul will be asked, which are really questions that we're going to be asking ourselves. And the first question is not, how many good things have you done? Not how much have you accomplished? One question that part of you that we call it kabbalistic, Leta, Koontz or a very simply put that part of me. That was the most challenging I had a conversation, this not tonight with one of our friends, and he was sharing that anger was his was a big part of his cocoon and it's so inspiring through coming to study Kabbalah. He's working on that part of himself to know that. Again, each one of us has won at least one if not more than one tremendously difficult aspects within ourselves, but let us not fool ourselves by thinking, I am a good person. I am Even a spiritual person. I do so many good things. That's great. That's not the point. The point for which I am in this world, is that part of me that is the most scary that is the most difficult and to transform that and the revelation of light for myself and therefore blessings that come from that for myself. And for the world is immeasurably greater than all the other important and positive things that I do again, always remember. That — Force the resides within each one of us will allow us to do many, many, many positive things but it will fight. As with all of its might did you say just don't touch that or ignore that it's too dark. It's too difficult. It's too challenging. No, that's why we're why I am in this world. That's why each one of us is in this world and really the world is waiting. The world has been waiting for a billion who knows how many billions of years for me to reveal that unique thing. Why do I want to waste my life? Being good. While we're on our way smile. I do all these other things. Let me focus on that, but we called tikkun or that part of me that needs to be transformed with. I think we will talk about a little bit more difficult work. Going back to that dark as going back to that challenge.

Speaker 1

24:25

It's so interesting because I think that if anybody looks at their lives, right? And even people who come and study Kabbalah or find a spiritual practice, it's for that one area of tikkun that's really bothering them that they need help with. And then we kind of negotiate with ourselves right? All this other, all these other areas of my life are working and successful. Here I am successful there. I am like this one area so it has to be that person or that thing. Yeah and maybe I should just stop doing it, or I should avoid it. But in fact, if you go all the way with it, if you really delve deep and you're like okay I am going to work this out. No matter what in this lifetime, what happens is you become the person you have always been looking for you, become the person you were To be and it's not ever outside of you that change that superpower that thing that you want resides within and the only way to find it the only way is to go to the place of your Tycoon to go to that hardest part. The biggest challenge, the most pain that you have felt throughout your life or the biggest part of your life. Everybody has it. Everybody has that story. You can make blame your mother-in-law. You can blame your third grade teacher, you can blame your child. Told her where you were born, whatever it is? But when you go to that place, the place that is if I just could remove this one thing for my life, and everything would be great touch that unpack, that own that. And then you start living the life you were meant to.

Speaker 2

25:53

It's very important. There's a quote from the founder of the center. Rivage luck, they often quote, but it's a very important one. For all of us to keep reminding ourselves. Certainly, those of us who take our spiritual life. Seriously, he says that out of 1,000 people. Oh sorry, that's something you're going to say. I am sorry. But go ahead too late. Now, out of a thousand out of.

Speaker 1

26:12

1000 penis. In my conclusion, I am .

Speaker 2

26:15

Sorry. So in.

Speaker 1

26:16

Conclusion, no, no, go ahead.

Speaker 2

26:18

Out of a thousand people who begin the spiritual path, only one in a thousand completes it. What that means is that the other 999, many of them will continue to see themselves as spiritual, many of them continue to do positive things. Just that one thing, and I was thinking as you were, as you were talking, That you know, we know many people and me we often have these conversations or even somebody who's been studying on this path for 20 years. And if you is they did an honest self-assessment or a relatively honest, I would say they would have a list of all the great things that they're doing all the great things that they have done. They just will not go to that one place and like Monica said, and I think this is so important to understand. So many so often people come to us and say I have this blockage in my life. I don't know why. I let all my probably every day somebody wants to me says you know I don't know why this is one area of my life, it doesn't seem to work. This is one area of my life, that doesn't seem to manifest your. This one person.

Speaker 1

27:20

Can come in the form.

Speaker 2

27:20

Of person. And if we understand that the solution to all of our problems, to all those areas in our lives that are had a lack is not anywhere out there, it's within me and Click I need to focus on that one part of me, my greatest challenge, my greatest darkness, my greatest difficulty and work on it that will open up all the gates that will open up all the.

Speaker 1

27:46

Gates. So big part of what we're talking about requires perseverance. And I think very often again maybe tonight. You're like okay I this is my superpower now. I have identified it, and so I am changed change requires a re choosing over and over again until it becomes your nature. Becomes part of who you are. It's not something that happens overnight. And even with Abigail and this process it wasn't she made the switch very quickly. In fact, after we had the conversation about what her diagnosis was the next maybe two days later. She went around to everybody. She knew and she Like, guess what? I have a superpower. It's dyslexia what's yours all in one breath. But it's still a re choosing, right? Because they will be some days that some things are challenging for her. But Abigail, can I invite you up for a second? I am a question for you.

Speaker 2

28:39

You're.

Speaker 1

28:46

Welcome. So I know you have done a lot of the work. We have talked about tonight and I wonder Because again, it's a constant choice to be able to feel really strong about the hard parts of our life. Do you still ever struggle with self-doubt or? And if you do maybe you don't and it but if you do how do you handle that? Well I think before I definitely did but now that I know it's a superpower and I feel good about it. I don't think I haven't like I just think I am always like sometimes I do struggle with words. And stuff. But I just keep persevering when I don't like yeah, I don't think negative thoughts about myself, you know, you really inspired me. Would you remember when you had your friends are over, and she goes to a different school and you both had homework and you had math homework, and she didn't understand her homework and you're like, oh yeah, I don't do that kind of math, but let us call my older sister, and she will help you. Oh, yeah. And you had no timer. When I was Abigail stage, I was like, oh my God, she's doing different math, than me. What does that mean about? What does It's an about me? Write it right away. It was a comparison. I was so impressed that you were like, yeah, I don't know, but that's not the math I do. And then now you do, right? And now she does different stuff but it wasn't a big deal for you. Yeah. But my friend didn't even know she's like, can you help me with this? I was like, I don't really understand it, but we can ask my sister. Hmm. You have any questions for me or Abba or the audience? You know, I do. I am just How do you think of your ideas for the?

Speaker 2

30:22

Podcast?

Speaker 1

30:26

Question little one? I think I kind of know. Well I feel like it's like how we wrote the book because we like we had something to say, and then we shared it with the world because we thought other people need that book to like the stories were showing about the kids. Like they needed that book and we better for them. So like that's why you do this podcast because like you know that people David word and say it any better myself. Thank you. Thank you, beautiful. So, In conclusion.

Speaker 2

31:10

So, before it before you conclude, just want to add to what you're talking.

Speaker 1

31:14

About. The Attaway, add to perseverance we'ii. Not just one.

Speaker 2

Perseverance. I mentioned before, the founder of the Centre of Oshawa, says the two quotes that I keep in mind almost every single day. The first is that the concept one in a thousand, the second what he calls the word the ancient in the Hebrew is yeah Gia. And that is hard work. And if we talk about our super power, we talked about the Coon, we talked about that unique light that I and every single one of us has to bring to this world, it has to be found in the most difficult parts of us and second that has to be worked on with perseverance every single day. And unless we do that and really invest the time and effort and it could be frustrating, it could be scary, but to keep going back and finding the light within our challenge. Then it's so easy to Veer off. Like I said before, we have seen too many people who can continue to be spiritual, just don't get either tired, lose their perseverance in. Keep ongoing inside to that area, one or two. Or whatever they are. That number is of ourselves at need to be transformed for me to reveal my unique light and I think we have to all have to ask ourselves that question. We asked before, what is my superpower? What is that part of me? That is most difficult that scares me that is to me seeming to be my greatest Challenge and then the more maybe more second and maybe more important question. What am I doing every single day? To make sure that I am transforming that I am able to truly reveal that as a greater and greater super power all the time too often again, we even now it in the back of our mind, we get tired. Other things are much easier to do. Like I said before, I think it's so important night. This is the way I frame it for myself. I don't want to waste my life and even though I know that I will do very important things with my life. That is not why I am here. I need to keep going back to find that part of me that needs to be transformed. That part of me that can continue to be my superpower and persevere again and again until it is completely transformed.

The cut score, rebbe said that people. Well, here's a parable people come down on a.

Speaker 2

33:46

Ladder, my favorite stories history.

Speaker 1

33:48

And then nobody gets your humor here yet. They get my here. They misunderstand you through my humor but together humor ha they come down the ladder and then when they're born, they fall off the ladder and our job and our responsibility. In this world is to keep jumping up to try to reach the ladder. So some people jump ten times, and then they give up some people jump 99 times, and they give up. Some people jump 999 times ten thousand times but it's those unique Souls that jump and jump again, no matter how much that really get to where they need to and the whole idea against perseverance. But it's if you want to live, it's not that you have found something. It doesn't work for you anymore or yeah, you know you're tired of this and that it's how many times are you willing to jump to get to the place that you always meant to get to and there're no shortcuts for That it's reached using every single day, and there's a quote by orison Swett Marden. He says, success is not measured by what you accomplished. By the opposition, you have encountered in the courage, with which, you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming.

Odds. Exactly. And if I can also, just leave it everybody here in all of our listeners, with this idea that Every single one of us and this is maybe the most basic teachings of Kabbalah are meant to experience life with endless blessings in all areas. And again assured this maybe a few weeks ago, that is a story about a this goes back. A few thousand years to King Solomon, and he wanted needed to get the assistance. This is the story as it is told of the king of all the negative Spirits. His name was ashmodai, and he's captured and brought to King Solomon. But on the path, the King Solomon's soldiers General, who's bringing him? The Experience certain things, and they walked by this guy who's a magician a sorcerer. And he's telling everybody I can see into the future. If you want to know your future come to me, I can create Magic and as Astrid, I walked past him, he starts laughing. Anyway, they keep walking. And once they come to King Solomon, the general goes back to ashmodai. This master of all the spirits, his hand, when we walked by, he has too many questions. One of them, was it the walked by a cobbler who had a man in his Or and the men said to The Cobbler. He said these shoes that you make for me I want them to last at least seven years and you laugh. This is why did you laugh? He says that poor man is not even going to live, another seven days, and he's busy preparing shoes for seven years. And then he says we walked by that sorcerer who was telling everybody, you can see into the future and you started laughing is why did you laugh? He says that guy was sitting his home was on top of a great treasure. That the king had lost their see if he can see. So well he doesn't even see what's under his feet. And he's going to tell the future for everybody else. And that is the understanding of our gift. Our superpower Articuno, as we call it. We do not need to go anywhere outside of ourselves to be able to open up those Gates of endless blessings that we are meant to experience. It's all in here, but it's specifically, as we find and transform and persevere. And embrace that part of us, that is most challenging that opens up all the gates that opens up all the blessings. So as I always say, I hope you enjoyed listening to all of our friends here in the room. All of our friends will listen to this online. Enjoyed this podcast as much as we enjoyed recording it. And again thank you to all of our friends here. We really appreciate all of your support for coming out to be with us this evening, and we hope we have shared some inspiration in life. And in some way, we all transform a little bit from this evening so thank you.
