Quotes

“That’s all that God needs, is just one sincere surrendered moment when love matters more than anything and nothing else really matters.” (6:51)

“Anxiety, depression or sadness, these emotions, they don’t want to be healed by you, they want to be held and loved by you. Visualize them as lost children that are knocking on your door, and they are hungry and they are wet and their clothes are raged, they need to be welcomed into you, not have the door slammed shut in their face and locked away in some corner where you never look.” (13:34)

“This is the full range of human experience, and so if we are here to experience that full range of the human experience, then we need to embrace it all.” (16:38)

“People have to understand that this is an industry, and the food industry, the diet industry, even the health industry, wants people to be confused so that you’ll seek their guidance. And it is actually quite simple, we don’t have to complicate it, I think, to the degree that we do.” (21:35)

“Not everybody is going to like you, and that’s okay, what’s most important is, do you like you?” (35:52)
