Samuel: Hello, dears.

Hi, Samuel.

S: So you have had a lot to think about over this month, yes? And you have, through thinking of that . . . my goodness, my boy has grown so much! He’s about as tall as Heidi now. Oops. You’ve had the opportunity to think about what you would do if you could do anything, and why you’re not doing it, and if you are, why it is you are doing it. And the opportunity to see a few things about yourself—hopefully a lot of things about yourself—with the energy that’s coming through right now—how has it been for you? Any comments, thoughts, wisdom gained, questions throwing it all out of shape? Suzanne.

Well, when you asked those questions last month, I was one of those who said, “Well, I really kind of like it this way.” And I’ve done all of the things that I wanted to do. I’ve checked them off way earlier in my life. So when you said something like, “If you’re one of the ones who just wrote down that you like what you’re doing now, remember that later.” And I went, “Okay, yes.”

And so I have been remembering it later. I have been remembering it when people are saying, “Well, I’m doing this and this,” or “I’m going off to this and this.” And I’m going, “I like it right where I am, doing right what I’m doing.” And it’s also helped me to enjoy the moment of what I am doing better . . .

S: Good.

. . . rather than just always thinking, “Is this really all it’s ever going to be?” I mean in comparing myself to others. It really has helped in that, and it has opened me up to some really transcendent moments of being at a gig, and just feeling the joy all around, and being able to carry that with me throughout the rest of the day, and realize that it’s always there. It’s in the air. It’s everywhere, and the only thing that’s stopping me from breathing it in, or anybody else from that, is just all my concerns and my specific problems.

S: That’s big. Good power in that. Good power in that.

Remember that it’s not, “Well, what I’m doing now isn’t enough,” “I’m happy with what I’m doing, therefore something’s wrong with me.” It is that every day you’re going to have an opportunity to affirm your choices, and that’s a lovely promise, and a pretty good threat.

More. Chris.

One of the things I’ve always envied about Catholics is they get to confess stuff.

S: Darling, you can confess.

So I’ve always struggled with the whole vegetarian thing, and secretly loved sushi, and, you know, one thing I loved about the workshop was that you kind of got the belt out, so to say, and gave me a little bit of a whupping on some things that I needed to hear, and mainly was the fact that I was still eating meat, secretly.

S: No secret.

Right. I was like this closet carnivore who was just like, you know, loved wasabi with some really good, you know, salmon. So, I stopped it entirely, and noticed that my clarity became a lot more . . . and maybe it was psychosomatic, but who gives a crap, you know. It became a lot more opportunistic, like I was hearing things that normally I would dismiss as just mere pleading thoughts. My intuition started to hone in to where I was starting to see stuff happen. I kid you not, I was walking down the hallway, you know, being very important like good hospital administrators do, and I had my lunch in my hand, and this image of me dropping my lunch comes into my head. And I’m like, “Well that’s just silly. I’ve got everything in my hands perfectly well. I’ve got my briefcase, and I’m going to be fine.” Well, no sooner than I turned that corner, there goes my lunch everywhere. And I’m like, “Good God. Had you paid attention! You got a friggin’ warning that it was going to happen, you know.” But I was just too busy looking important to pay attention, you know, so I’ve been very grateful for everything that I’ve been able to see about myself in the last few weeks, and it’s been highly opportunistic.

S: Just remember, it’s not that you’re not getting it; it’s that yet you don’t trust it, so let the little things add up, follow that little bit of intuition. What’s the proper word they say now? Of . . .


That’s way seventies.

S: . . . of God speaking to you with your voice.

[. . .]

S: Sure, all of those. That you hear is huge, absolutely huge. To hear and trust requires successful step by successful step. You remember the rules: small steps; don’t sabotage yourself. Small steps. “I can risk grabbing ahold of my lunch a bit better, but I won’t risk saying to this person what it is I know is really going on in there.” Small steps. That’s really nice.


I guess I’m wondering if I will ever stop being judgmental. I heard someone that I care a lot about admit that they had some racist feelings, and I just was, you know, I was aghast. And the more I thought about it, I just realized how much I’m judging them the same way they’re judging someone else. And it’s just something to find out about yourself that you just don’t think you’re ever going to quit doing. I mean, is there ever a time that I can expect that I don’t have that reaction first, that judgment.

S: As simple as it seems, the more that you pat yourself on the back, consciousness recognition is what I’m saying there, but you pat yourself on the back when you recognize that you did not make judgments in this or that situation.

Now, of course, if you want to get really picky at it, you had to have made a judgment in order to be able to say, “Oh good, I did not make a judgment, because that was a system in which judgment should have been made—oops.” You see?

But, for instance, remember that you too are racist.

A racist?

S: A racist, yes, love. You prefer pretty much anything outside of the human race, definitely preferring Guardians and Ellic force and the Source of all things, and All That Is, and on and on it goes, you see?

I want it to be worthy of my attention, you see.

I think you’ve just proved his point.

I’m still aghast.

Everyone in here is judging me for that remark.

S: And with my point being there will not come a time in which you are no longer judgmental, because the nature of the human experience is you must constantly judge this step or that step. “Should I take the sidewalk or should I take the street?” “Should I . . . well this sidewalk looks rough. Should have gone on the street. Thought I could get around that pothole. Went right into it.”

You are constantly judging, so give yourself permission. “All right. I get it. I’m judging pretty much everything and everybody all the time, and I’m not going to be spending all of this energy resisting it, because what that’s doing is keeping it right in my face. So what I will do instead . . . ,” because, very much like getting rid of fear in your life, and you—through the process—personify it to a certain amount to be able to name it, claim it, meet it, see what it does, what it wants for dinner, whatever. You, when you are working on changing a behavior, particularly those behaviors that for ninety-five percent of your life are good and useful, and you’ve only got this tiny, little, piece which uses that ability for things you’re not really proud of and wanting to put your attention to, let yourself recognize it—how about as a friend—and every time you see the way that your perception changes, pat yourself on the back. And the perceptual changes you want to look at are, maybe three or four times a day, give yourself the opportunity to say, “All right, Bonnie, honey, what are the . . .” Don’t you think that makes sense? It’s just such a pleasurable thing to call oneself if you’re name is Bonnie. “. . . Over the last couple of hours, how have I been doing with this tendency to judge negatively? How am I doing? Well, since I have been in the bathtub for two hours reading a book, I’ve been doing real well. Good for me!” Or whatever it is. The point I’m making is, try to retrain your focus not to resist, but to recognize and consciously apply in a positive function—and one more time really, tonight maybe the cue words are “step by step, little steps, little steps, baby steps, baby steps.” Baby step by baby step, your intent takes over your action instead of habit taking it over.

Now that works really well with a whole lot more than judgment alone, but it’s not going to happen if what?

If you keep beating yourself up.

S: Well, if you’re spending all of that change time into beating yourself up, you’re right, that’s true.

What I had in mind was more along the lines of, if you’re not aware that there’s a problem. You have people in your life—surely, because it definitely could never be you—you know people who do this, who don’t even think twice about popping out with the . . . whatever that happens to be—judging others perhaps, negative speaking, those people whose presence is always a remarkable gift of absolute gutter time.

Your consciousness changes things, even before you’re taking action about it, so be aware. Face fully the things that are coming into your life these days to show you more about you.

What I did with this person was to, as I worked it through and realized I was doing the same thing that they were doing, was to [. . .] I think what I did to process it was to say, “Well that person was being honest about something that’s not very acceptable. They were being honest in the conversation with me,” and I gave them credit in that way for being honest. It allowed me to kind of accept that in them, and kind of look at what I was doing, too.

S: Sort of breaking that cycle of “Oh my gosh, what a horrible judgment you have just made, and so I am making of you because of what you just made, and it . . . ”

I know that a whole lot of the time you would rather back away rather than confront. I know that. I’m getting used to it. That fear of confrontation really is a whole lot bigger than fear of speaking in public. Yes? That thing? It is time to get over that. And although I’m not asking you to become combative, and I’m not asking you to get yourself in trouble, I’m asking you to lean on the friendship you think you have with somebody very dear to you who pops out with a particularly racist statement that it just breaks your heart to hear. And instead of looking for thirteen ways to be accepting and understanding about that, why don’t you say, “How does that serve you?” That’s one of those questions that creates introspection, and it’s one of those questions that might create a dialogue. But, of course, there’s a big risk to it.

I think that you have been backing away from risk for a very long time. In your effort not to be defensive, maybe you’ve become offensive where it really matters. I am amazed sometimes with how much you hide your light under a bushel, or how much you work to be a bridge that you become the part of the bridge under the water that nobody ever sees. Sure.

How does what you’ve just said fit with your teachings on picking your battles? Because I think perhaps I’ve rationalized at times not confronting somebody because I think it’s not a battle I want to deal with.

S: And that may still be the case. It may not be a battle you want to deal with, but somebody vomits on your parade . . . maybe that wasn’t exactly the right . . .

Rains on your parade.

S: I agree with D.C. She said, “It works.” It does. It works. Rains is nowhere near where I would say that. Somebody just lets loose with their own illness, and you have for how many years let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go. Well, somewhere you need to stop and ask yourself, “Am I letting it go for me, and if so why?” “Am I letting it go for wanting to keep this relationship going?” And I would ask you again to ask yourself why.

Life should be a function of balance, and right now in life so much of what’s going on is extremes. Extremes, and you are working to bring them to balance, and as a result of that getting less and less of life at the extremes. Sometimes when you don’t cruelly or angrily choose a time that doesn’t work so that you’re just poking instead of actually doing something, sometimes when you consciously choose to lovingly interrupt a process, you might find that a door opens that’s never been opened before. An opportunity to talk, to gain a perspective, to . . . I don’t know, maybe change your own views in one way or another. [To Bonnie] Are you a racist now? I mean other than human race, angelic race. And, of course, I was just poking on Bonnie once again with that question. You might find that you can learn something you never knew before. There might be a history to it that you never understood. There might be a foundation of confusion of misunderstanding, and goodness knows, in this world—and very much right now—communication is a tricky, tricky road to walk. Don’t back away and blame it on the other person when what you’re really backing away from is your own fear.

And again, remember, when you’re looking out in this world, you’re seeing extremes. When you’re looking within your heart, yourself, you are seeing balance. You put those two together and you’ve got that balance that gets you out of the extremes. Don’t only look at the outside, look at the inside. It can be done.

Lillibeth, then Kathy. Hands over here? All right.

I have two things. One is kind of in relationship to what Bonnie was speaking about. I had a really interesting experience with what could have been a racist type of experience. I’ve been negotiating a service with someone via e-mail. And we’ve had many, many e-mails, and we’ve had such a delightful conversation, and just such a warmth that’s going on there with that. And I was asking to add on something to the service, and the gentleman said, “Are you of the Jewish community.” And I thought, “This doesn’t apply or fit with what we’re doing, but I’m curious as to why he has asked this,” and my first thought was “Is there a prejudice, is there a reason for it in this particular situation that I’m unaware of?” And so I thought, “Okay, I have to address this. “

So I e-mailed back, and I said, “I’m curious about why you asked this question, and when you can answer that to me, I’ll answer back to you. I’ll feel very inclined to do that.” And I said, “I’m not sure how it’s relevant to what we’re doing.” So he e-mailed back, and it was the sweetest thing. What also happened in my mind was, when I heard the two words “Jewish” and “community” together, I thought “I don’t think this is a racist statement that’s going to come back to me,” because he used the word community, and it told me that he thought a lot about the Jewish community enough to recognize the communion that’s there.

So he wrote back and he said, “The reason I asked is because we recently had the good fortune to serve a Jewish group, and they were asking for something similar, and I thought possibly you might be Jewish.” And I thought it was such a terrific opportunity to allow for something different than what I could have jumped to, and it was the sweetest thing. And I said, “Am I driving you crazy asking you a lot of questions?” He said, “No.” He said, “I love my job, and it’s my job to serve and make your experience better.” So, you know, sometimes we don’t have the whole picture, and we don’t know . . .

S: Oh, and don’t you hate that part.

And I found that out. I really found that out in this communication. It was such a gift.

The second thing is, I had this dream about a week ago. It was a very odd dream in some ways. One, I dream in color, and this was in black and white. And there was a person, it was like a vignette, and they had a golden triangle over their face, not a pyramid above their head. And in the center of it was a glowing crystal. And I thought, Well, that tells me I’ve just had a very important connection that comes through my dream. I didn’t know what it meant. And so the next day I was thinking about it, and this thought just came into my mind that said, “You’re wanting to write and illustrate, and if you show up, I’ll show up, and I’ll be your muse.” And I thought, Whoa. And the agreement had to be consistent, and so I made that compact, and I failed on it. I made it the next day, and it was unbelievable. There was something I’ve been trying to write for a lot of years, and I was struggling with overcoming an obstacle in it, and it flowed through with just exactly the perfect way to handle it. It was easy, and I really realized that I was having help that hadn’t been there before. And I tend to think, in my mind, that this was a crossover that you’ve mentioned that we might have crossovers, and it’s a part of my entity that has those capabilities that’s working with me. And so I just said, “Well, that’s nice. It’s nice to have this confirmation of these types of openings and crossovers coming in such a beautiful sweet way.”

And so I’m going to try to keep my commitment , and renegotiate when I know I have to, and just have that conversation flow. So that’s a beautiful gift.

S: Good work. Good work.

One of the things I’ve been aware of lately is just how much access we have, or maybe just what I’ve chosen to do lately, because I’ve been consciously letting myself just connect in with whatever. And I’ve been amazed at the information and . . .

S: Let me back you up just a bit. I’m not going to let you shuffle it off that easily. “With whatever”?

Okay, with myself, with my Source self, with my connection.

S: Like that better, thank you. We are talking about . . .

Okay, but I’ve been really consciously giving myself those opportunities lately, which is a pattern change for me, which is a good thing. And I’ve gotten so much good information, and it’s like being on the top of the mountain and being able to look down at me and my life with this detachment that allows for so much more acceptance, and so much more peace within.

S: Peace.

Within myself and within the situations in my life. My life hasn’t gotten easier—it’s got actually a little harder—but because I have that connection, I’m managing things so much better, and it’s really, really nice. And I’m grateful for that gift that I’ve given myself, and just the energy that allows that to happen. There’s been some wild meditations, but it’s been fun.

S: Well said.

There is so much going on right now. So much going on in your lives, yes. So much going on in your world right now, yes. So much going on within you right now. Until the current energy shifts, and it hasn’t yet, you are going to find yourself filled with opportunity, and if you are not sure what to do with it, if you’re afraid of doing with it, if you don’t see it because you’re busy scrambling around looking for it on only this corner right over here. There is a joke. I think it says, “When my ship came in, I was looking for a train,” or something like that, right? And “my ship coming in” is prosperity and delights, and something, yes?


S: All right. All right. There are things that you can do in your life, fairly easily, to trigger recognizing the next step, to trigger what is the right direction to look for. I want to just toss a few out.

There was a time, some of you may remember, that the Form was trying to learn how to corral her wild, spiritual tendencies. To put a nice box around it. “This is psychic.” It’s not psychic. “This is . . . ” She could probably do one of the best—what?—tarot cards, or flames, or palms, that you’d ever had. I found it a little boring, but, you know, whatever works. Just a little.

It was a little below you.

S: No, a little below her.

Since then I have noticed that that’s actually a very common sort of thing to do. You immediately look for a place around you where you will fit in. Something new in your life comes up, you look for where that’s going to fit in the known world.

Now, the problem with that, of course, is what?

It limits you.

S: It limits you, absolutely. It limits you.

We’re the templates for what is to be, not for what is.

S: Very few things in your world would be discovered if somebody was not willing to step outside of the familiar boxes and not automatically say, “Oh, this is all right, because it’s just like this.” Or, “If you could just fit it right over here in this place.” “Come to Shangri-la. You’ve got to trek over some pretty wild mountains to do it.” “Oh, well don’t worry. I can do that, because I’ve trekked over the mountains in Eastern Kentucky.” It’ll get you in trouble. Nonetheless, that tends to be the very first thing you do when something new comes up. “How does this fit in with the friends I have right now?” Or “the job I have right now,” or “the money I have right now,” or “the . . . ” Just keep adding to that. I’m not saying don’t do that, I ‘m saying don’t let that be your deciding factor.

I’ve just realized why the three of you are sitting up here together like this, other than trying to blind me, right? Your birthday is very quickly, yes? Very soon. Wednesday. Happy birthday. Thank you, and you, and you for being born.

In every bit of your life, now and again you’ve got to step out for a breath of fresh air, don’t you? And that breath of fresh air can sort of clear your mind. It can give your brain the opportunity to process through enough that you’re able to gain additional perspective. Back away from the known. That’s the breath of fresh air. And by that, I’m not saying embrace the unknown, although it wouldn’t hurt—much—most of the time. Step out of that automatic tendency to make harsh judgments. Step out and take another breath, take another look at it before you automatically . . . anything. See better, understand better, by stepping back.

Part of what’s being said there is don’t fully engage until you know what’s going on. And that works, for instance, with the discussion that we had—we all had it—with Bonnie here. Don’t fully engage. Look for another way in. Don’t go through your life assuming—and that sentence really could just end right there and be a really good sentence, but I’m going to continue it—don’t go through your life assuming you are right, or assuming you are wrong. Don’t go through life assuming somebody else knows it better than you do, lives it better than you do, loves it better than you do, or that no one does. Step back. Detach. Get a breath of air.

Now, I’ve been looking through the room and pretty much every one of you in here has a piece of your old self leading you around by the nose right now, and I would like to suggest to you that you step out for a breath of fresh air. Look to see what’s different. I can guarantee you one constant difference should always be you. You are not who you were yesterday. Please remember that. You’re not who you were an hour ago. The choices that person would have made may well be different than the one this one, having just breathed in a good lung full of oxygen—or lungs full of oxygen, sorry—step back, get clarity. Change perspective. And all of this is under a breath of air.

One of the things that some of you are looking at, and perhaps it’s a yellow Volkswagen, but it appears to me that you are seeing some painful things in your life right now—some of you. Do not judge yourself by how much pain you can tolerate. Do not measure yourself by how much abuse you can take. Be careful.

Now, let me explain what I mean by that. I just said take a breath of fresh air, and now I’m saying be careful. But I’m saying be careful because you’re walking on shaky ground—without having to be in China, or, yes, in Indonesia, which is pretty much always shaking. You’re walking on shaky ground, because this is a whole new person looking at this—you. Your heart is differently open now than it was yesterday, so you’re gaining something different from it. Be careful that you don’t fall into a rut and function out of habit—and think you’re alive.

Having said that, I also want to tell you to be careful about automatically reacting, automatically closing down or putting forth behaviors. “Hold up a minute, Samuel, just a moment! You have given us so many tools over the years to teach us how to be able to think quickly, and how to be able to combine the heart with the brain, and put out decisions that need to be made, and activities we need to do, and automatically functioning right away with love first, and it sounds like you’re sort of backing away from all of that. Is that so?” No, not at all. I’m simply saying when you are in the middle of pain, or maybe it’s not pain, maybe it’s simply a crisis of self-belief, or a step into the land of having to believe six new things before breakfast. Right? That’s what happens down the rabbit hole?

I got it. Alice.

S: Yes, that’s the one. Alice . . .

In Wonderland.

S: In Wonderland. Thank you very much. I was starting to get a little nervous up here. Well, maybe that really isn’t what was on that doorway.

Be careful with your automatic responses. Be careful with your automatic judgments. Be careful with your automatic anything. Stop a moment, look at it.

I’m going to make a terrible statement, and if you’re in pain, you’re going to feel it: You are in charge of what you feel, and you are in charge of how that shows up outside of you. You are in charge of what you feel. And you are in charge of how that shows up outside of you. Be careful. When you are stepping aside from an automatic behavior that has not been serving you, your alarm systems are going to go off about, oh, probably every ten minutes. Something’s going to come up to push you. It’s not a bad thing, it’s a good thing. Go back to step one. Step out for a breath of fresh air, and take a look at what’s going on. What is it you want to feel? That’s really the big question. What’s keeping you from feeling it? You’re not going to get anywhere if you just automatically answer “Me,” and not look at it. What’s keeping you from it? All right, of course, spiritual answer: yourself. Yes, that’s true, but what is it about yourself? Well, it’s going to be something you feel, I promise. It’s going to be something that goes with “I feel like . . .” Well, that isn’t the word that was automatically coming to my mind, but obviously some of yours. And I’ve learned that that’s not one of those that gets to be on television.

One of the most irritating—I think that’s a loaded enough word to use here—one of the most irritating things you deal with in your life is, when you feel pain you feel unhappiness, you do not feel strong, you do not feel grounded, you do not feel . . . on and on and on, and nothing works. It doesn’t change, because you haven’t.

Be careful, and now I’m going to complete that sentence with something that’s going to sound absolutely outrageous. Be careful, please, not to always be careful. That’s a big, powerful statement there. Walking on eggshells, having to behave in a particular way around a particular person, the tyranny of . . . pick anything. You want things to be different, but you do not know yourself well enough to courageously step forward into something new without being hunted by the demons of yesterday, or the demons of what you need in a particular situation, or of the automatic response that just gets you through the day so that you can wake up tomorrow and try again.

You might be surprised how many people around you would be absolutely overjoyed if you chose to feel instead of just reacting. Reactions, best friend, best friend forever, right?


S: . . . is fearing what you’ll find out if you make a change. Fearing what you’ll find out about yourself. Therefore it’s a lot easier just to keep along in the rut; therefore it’s a lot easier just not to make waves and not to bring about change. You might find that once you start respecting yourself a bit more, things don’t fall into the comfortable old awful patterns that they have been for so long now.

Get a breath of fresh air. Be careful that you’re not always worried about being so careful, but don’t be stupid. Baby steps, right? Baby steps.

Don’t kick the dog, and when I say “Don’t kick the dog,” sometimes it’s not actually four legs and a wagging tail, and big brown eyes, and “woof-woof!” Sometimes it looks a whole lot like you. Sometimes it looks a whole lot like a co-worker.


S: A husband. Don’t kick the dog. Don’t kick the dog. It irritates the dog and makes you feel bad. It’s one of those habits you play around with, and you don’t think about it anymore, and it brings you more pain than most anything else in your life. Stop it! Can you? Oh sure. Sounds easy. But these are patterns that have gotten you through your whole life, and because of those patterns you are missing out on what is one of the most magical times that has been a part of this earthly dimension for twenty-six . . . well, anyway, a very long time.

When I told you recently to look at you, I should have said, “and see a new you.” Look for the new you, because what I saw was a whole lot of assuming that things aren’t really any different, because you’re not any different.

Well, beloved one, tonight when you go to bed, I want to make a request of you. I want you to put on your magic glasses, all right? Go to bed. Get them out of that dusty corner of your room that you’ve not looked in for too long, and maybe wash them off a little, because some of them have been so unused and bent and . . . and put them on before you close your eyes to go to sleep, and say to yourself, “These glasses are a part of the magic in me, and I choose to see my life through magical eyes, eyes that see miracles, eyes that don’t look for the box first, eyes that aren’t looking out for making no waves, nor pushing, pushing, pushing your own way.

When you are seeing the magic, it forces you out of the habit of living in a world without it. And I will tell you something very sad, particularly to those outside of this room who are touching into this right now. There are those among you who have been, who have it within them to truly be magical beings, but it’s just a little bit too far out of the box for all of your comfort levels, so you hide it. And do you know what happens when you do that? Physical depression, meaning emotional depression—but physical self, physical body thing. Physical depression. Very often a lack of healthy habits, because you’re punishing yourself for not seeing the magic, for not being the magic you are and have. You’re probably overweight and under-loved. And if you’re not actually those things, you feel it, because that’s what stuffing the magic down does. You can wander in the desert for only so long.

The Form was asked today, What does Samuel have to say about a particular situation? And I believe that my answer to that particular question actually fits pretty much anything you might ask right now: There is a miracle waiting for you. It has your name on it. It’s a big envelope. It’s filled with the power of wholeness and love. When you are willing to step just a little bit out of your reality and become less afraid of that big envelope, you will find your life changing in very good ways.

It’s always life or death, but I what I need you to remember is that it’s not the death of the physical body that’s being talked about; it‘s the wandering around dead while you’re breathing and your heart’s beating, and you’re going through your everyday routine. It’s just around the corner and it’s waiting for you.

And having said all of that, I want you to know that tonight this is one of the most serious meetings that has been absolutely filled with pretty little things to think about;. The fact of it is, they are life and death: your life, your death. Everything I have said was meant to push right into your heart. Don’t be fooled; I’m talking just to you.

Now here is the part where I go, and you quietly leave the room, and then you go into the small meeting room and you partake of wonderful food, and you try not to act like you are one of the walking dead. Just sort of make conversation happily. “Has he finished bludgeoning us yet?” I have.

I have tonight talked about—wait just a moment—who has the discussion? Oh, Harvey. Good. You’ll get this easily then. The question you want to be sure to ask is “What were your five things?” Here is what I’m about to say: I have tonight been pushing buttons. From this, there are maybe more, but a guaranteed five—different for all of you—five things that were my big points, and they are a road map for you.


Thank you.
