And my point here is to assure you, you can have it.”  – Kellan Fluckiger

What you are about to learn

Did you look in the mirror and love yourself this morning, because you’re a capable, influential, loving, beautiful, divine person? I want to remind you of that. I want to thank you for listening to this podcast. My inspiration is you—all of you who want their lives to be meaningful and powerful. And I want to send you my love and assure you that you are loved by me, by God and that opportunities and beauty are waiting for you today, not someday way out in the future. The chance for you to create your ultimate life starts here. It begins Now, and it is with you every day your maximum energy is that life of purpose, prosperity, and joy, that you create serving others with your divine gifts.

Now I want to discuss the voice that we hear on our heads, the voice on our shoulders.  One of the essential parts of learning of this life is which voices to listen to. And understand that the more we listened to the selfish voice or the devil voice, if you will, and we do the selfish things, or we don’t do the things that we should do, the more regret we have, the more cleanup we have, and the more mess we leave around us. And those things are just facts. And the intent is for us to develop character, capability, and love.  

I know from my own experiences, most of it through misery and pain, that God is there all the time, that there is divine purpose, and that the more I tell the negative voice to get lost, the more I give in or allow the cheerful voice to rule, my intentions and my thoughts and my choices. The happier I am, the better I do. But,  there is a real choice. And that’s another one of those things about this framework. God seems to allow us to have a natural choice. So if you or I choose to do something awful and hurt someone, it is permitted and actually hurt, and damage even occurs.  

What happens when we fail? No matter how many times I commit, I still fall on my face, and I always sometimes find myself drawn into selfishness or self-pity. What I discovered is that listening to the negative voice, doing something I shouldn’t or not doing something I should, calling myself names, and being negative never lead to the right place, it led to more negativity, self-loathing and lousy behavior, self-sabotage. So what I learned is this carry a big blanket of forgiveness. You’re human. You’re going to make mistakes. Maybe there’ll be selfish mistakes. Possibly there’ll be completely unwitting, accidental mistakes. I know for sure that carrying a hate grudge for yourself, which I used to do a lot or someone else which I’ve also done, never has led me to the right place.  Forgive yourself, forgive them, and move forward with a recommitment to listen to the good voice.

Key Takeaways

“We are here. One of the main reasons is to learn to give love. We love receiving attention in love. And we need to learn to give love. What if God was only half-hearted in his love for us. And I know difficult things happen. And so we can rage and think that he’s not there and doesn’t exist. But my experience teaches me otherwise. And that is there’s always a reason, and there’s growth everywhere if we’ll take it and if we allow it into our lives.”

“If you’re in a place of still struggling, there is a place where it is less struggle. There is a development that takes place. And that’s what I have experienced by following or learning, finally, to allow God’s playbook to operate in my life. There’s a real choice, real growth, and real opportunity.”
