The question has gone from, 'How do you want to feel'? to 'What do you want to embody?' because feelings really come from the unconscious - from the subconscious. We want to embrace those feelings; we don't want to overidentify with the feelings because we are not our feelings. Your happiness, or your sadness, or your sorrow cannot take you out of the game of enlightenment...

...I am not my misery; I am a soul having this experience and these clouds called emotions are coming and going. I'm going to look at them and love them but I'm not going to be the rain cloud; I'm going to be the sky. - Danielle LaPorte

  • Understanding the difference between good technology and ones like Metaverse and Oculus that are trying to steer us away from love, harmony, and connection.
  • How suffering wakes us up and helps us be aware of what is truly happening around us.
  • The fact that humans and our planet have been suffering for decades yet our focus is on other areas that don't help but continue to hurt us.
  • Why the pain that the world is suffering now is actually a call for us to forgive and take care of each other.
  • Ask yourself this: What would your life look like if you forgave everybody?
  • The fact that we're all going to suffer at some point along our life journeys but we get to choose how we approach that suffering based on how we see ourselves.
  • How we can handle moments when there is a power struggle or conflict between you and another person or group.
  • Why she is currently working on her ego and helping it not feel so offended plus what you can do if you find yourself in a similar situation.
  • The fact that forgiveness is actually more about asking for it and giving ourselves forgiveness rather than telling someone that you forgive them.


[29:00] Facing Our Own Tyranny & Holding Space for Sacred Anger

  • Exploring the needs of other people and how we show up depending on if we're more healed, healed, or not healed.
  • The different levels of healing, backgrounds, and purposes we see in relationships.
  • How to be the counter-balance in a war by choosing peace.

Power Quotes From The Show

Knowing God's Perfect Love

"My prayer to God now is, 'I want to know your perfect love and I want to be that perfect love.' To do that, first, you have to believe that perfect love exists and that it's possible. I don't think you have to believe that you're worthy. Does perfect love exist? I think conceptually we all believe it does but does it exist for you? If it exists for you can everyone else wake up to it existing? That's my current shift with God and creation; that I am perfectly loved." - Danielle LaPorte


Humanity's Fantastic Threshold of Awakening

"I’m not trying to save the world anymore. Not because I think that my actions don’t matter—every action by every one of us counts. And I’m not giving up on the world because I believe it’s a lost cause—we’re at a fantastic threshold of awakening.⁣⁠" - Danielle LaPorte


Exploring Sacred Anger

"The energy of the heart is inclusive; so, anger is only sacred if it is including the benefits of others. So, if it is vengeance to right the wrong and has an 'eye for an eye' dynamic, it's not sacred; it's profane. If your anger's energy is on behalf of humanity and it helps bring justice with something like clean drinking water, all children are protected, and everyone has medical freedom - that is sacred anger. If your attitude is, 'You gotta go down so that I feel justified,' that is not sacred." - Danielle LaPorte
