Words from Luke:

“Even when you’re in a really low place like that, at least for me there was still this small voice that was kind of going ‘You’re better than this.”

“We’re given this amazing gift of free will, and if you wanna go be a pedophile or a serial killer, go nuts, no one’s gonna stop you. Eventually, someone will, but God won’t. We have the spectrum from the lowest of low energies to the highest of the angelic and you can play around within that realm here on this plane.”

“Alcoholism or any addiction is an obsession of the mind in a very global sense. It’s just, if you’re drinking, it’s on another whiskey, if you’re a sex addict, it’s on another prostitute or pornography or whatever, but once you stop the behavior, you still have the obsession of the mind. So once you get past the point of using exogenous sources to change your reality, it behooves me to find ways within my spirituality to change my perception of life.”

“Everything that happens in my life now is viewed as a positive. I used to have to do drugs to change my version of reality. I got the parking ticket, I got the divorce, someone died, someone’s ill, whatever, Ok I’m gonna ingest something, whether it’s something that gets you high, or the high of spending money, I have to use that to change my perception of reality. There’s a me, which is my higher self, my soul, who I really am, that’s embodying this 48 year old male-sexed meat-suit. And I get to watch my personality right now as we speak, I get to watch my thoughts, my ego. There’s a separation, there’s a witness experience that starts to happen and there’s a crack in the armor there and some light shines through and then you say ‘Oh shit, there’s a me, and then there’s a thought.“
