TRANSCRIPT

 

Joshua T Berglan 0:01
Hey, what’s up everybody? My name is Joshua. I’m the world’s mayor. And yes, I look different than that guy right there. Today, I got to do a little acting. It’s not very often, of course, I have I had to put makeup on before. Me, I’ve done TV. So I had to do makeup then. But I’ve no I don’t think I’ve ever had to put makeup on for an actual acting gig. And I got to play a homeless person today. And got to shoot at the most beautiful church in downtown Minneapolis. It is unbelievably gorgeous. St. I forgot the name of the Church, which is terrible. Maybe I should just look at my map here and tell you should look this up sometime. What is the name of this church? Oak Grove? I don’t know if I would really just want you to see it. But anyway, bye bye to grow in downtown Minneapolis. And it is stunning. And it’s an Episcopalian Church, which I’ve never even I don’t even think I’ve heard of. And I’m not really a religious person, even though I’m a follower of Jesus and love Jesus with all my heart. But wait, maybe? Is it over there? Oh, I’m gonna read you this. Hold on. Hang on. I’ll be right back.

Joshua T Berglan 1:26
You’re gonna follow me camera. Go. Okay, now you’re not going to follow me. Okay, go on. Come on. Come on. Come on. Okay, that was not fun, I’m sure. For the podcast audience. Oh, by the way, we are on the live mana Network. Thank you so much to everyone who has downloaded our app or found our new website, which is live mana.org, which you’ve heard us promote, but it redirected Dilip Mana worldwide.org. We now live Mana worldwide.org is just our foundation page, even though our content is still there. Now live mana.org is for the network. So we’re there. And it’s actually makes it super easy and convenient. To download the app. It’s right there on the website, you can find us everywhere. We’re at that link that says download our app will take you to all of your options. And this is a fantastic way to watch these broadcast. Anyway, so St. Mark’s Episcopal cathedral. All are welcome. How many churches in the world say that all are welcome. Oh, by the way, we’re going to talk about the some of the dark things going in on the world. Dark things going on in the world today. There’s 30 of them. 30, dark things. We’re going to talk about this as on board panda. We’re going to talk about it. But we’re also going to find somehow some way to tie it into a kingdom message about Kingdom rewards. And somehow I’m going to tie all of it in together. I haven’t read the article. Like I typically don’t. I’ve read the devotional, I haven’t read the article, but I don’t need to because I saw with the very first one was and, and I wanted to make sure that it was they were being honest. And they’re not saying here, it’s gonna pop up right there. People share dark stuff going on around the world, the general public was likely not aware of. And here are the 30 most eye opening answers. Yeah, I’m gonna do that. And then I’m going to find some way to tie it into a purpose message. So anyway, back to this, this church. We quit going to church, because we didn’t. We tried to go serve at the churches around here. And we wanted to serve in the way that we are good at serving and never got an opportunity. And so we went off and started our own thing and started doing our own thing. But I miss going to church. I miss going to church a lot. I missed the community. I want our girls going. I mean mind you, we do church every day here but you know, it’s not like your regular church. So we miss it. We both my wife and I both miss it and been looking for a church. But I’ve been looking for a church that welcomed everyone and not just set it and I don’t know what I think about this. Who knows we’ll be able to look back at this broadcast. Not to like the time date these but October 27 2022. All are welcome all skeptics. All sexes. All 982 of them. All orientations. All colors, all sizes, all ages all cool. cultures, all individuals, St. Mark’s Episcopal cathedral. So there were some things that are going on, that I saw. And I don’t know enough about that religion or this sect of Christianity, to comment on it, except that I love that. I love that. Because you’re not converting anyone to love Jesus by bashing them and marching outside of their abortion clinics, and I may not support abortion, but I don’t believe in making people feel like crap either. Let go Let conviction do it. Not judgment, not our judgment. Who are we to judge? I just don’t believe that we’re converting people that way. And I don’t think you’re going to get them to hear your point of view. And you’re marching outside of their clinics and, and making people feel terrible about their decision and that you don’t really even know their situation. And so it’s really, really easy to say, well, you’re killing a baby. But to them from their perspective, you don’t know their situation, too. I’m bashing gay people bashing bisexual people or whatever sexuality they are.

Joshua T Berglan 6:12
And saying that they’re an abomination. Like you’re saying that because you heard it somewhere, or Oh, you read it in the Bible. But then what you didn’t realize is that Bible had been changed a bunch of times. And now it says that word when I didn’t say that word before. And that word wasn’t even invented until 150 years ago. And, you know, I mean, like, we’re we judge based off of other people’s truth that we’re not really even sure is really truthful. Like, well, I got it from Bible school, or I got it from, you know, med school, who funded those schools, who created the curriculum, who funded that. I was reading I think it was in Ephesians. It’s I rotate between three different Bible apps, because they have three different versions of the Bible that I really love to read. I forgot what it was. But essentially, it was like saying that, okay, believers are going to come together, no one’s going to agree, they’re going to get caught up and fighting over scripture, fighting over eight. By the way, there’s going to be multiple things that happen on this broadcast today. So just hang with me. But if you’ve watched before, you kind of know, we tell stories, and we talk and sometimes I lose the story. And then I leave you hanging. And then I don’t remember again for five other episodes. Bear with me. So almost lost where I was at again. I just did, because I told the story.

Joshua T Berglan 7:48
We’re telling a story. Talking about purpose. Oh, boy. Oh, anyway, truth. Oh, I know, the Bible Version of the Bible. Okay. Kids, this is why honestly, I know I said at the beginning of the episode, that God, you know, all that bad stuff, the bad decisions, the mistakes that we make, like God gives us an opportunity to take all of it and use it for good use. I mean, I believe that I believe in redemption. I believe all the evil that we do in the world, we get an opportunity to do that much more good. I believe all that. But I gotta tell you, don’t wait until you’re 36 to figure out that now is a good time to stop doing meth and coke and everything else under the sun and alcohol and like, I could have stopped soon enough. And here’s the point. Here’s the thing. You got to stop sometime. And I heard something yesterday and I gotta give credit to what is it? I almost called him Neil Patrick Harris, because Jordan Peterson and Neil Patrick Harris look alike. But Jordan Peterson. I heard him say something because he was talking about his family. This three pillars family. He didn’t say faith. Nevermind, doesn’t matter. But he was talking about he liked to drink. It was a drinker. And if you’re a drinker, you love to drink. Like I have my glass of wine. Like that’s your thing. Those of you that love cannabis are like, Well, I have a fine sativa at the end of the night, and this is how I relax. This is how I meditate. You know, you people. When you have your thing. You know some people it’s praise and worship, other people. It’s a drink. But he talked about the consequences of the drinking. And he goes, it’s fun. And it’s a good time. And he goes but you got to find something in life that you love more than having a good time. Like what do you what do you care more about then you Do having a good time. And I it made me step back and say that’s how I stopped. This is how I’ve stopped being a chem sex addict. This is how I’ve started doesn’t mean I’m not a pervert, sometimes. It doesn’t mean that I don’t want drugs sometimes. But I’m I’m not a chem sex addict anymore. I’m not a sex addict anymore. I’m not an addict anymore. Unless if I living I mean, I guess you could be I mean, I’m a, I may be addicted to my work. If I work a serving, and I love doing it, and yes, my dreams get to come true at the same time. And I don’t know. But I what I realize is that I care about this. And the fact that I get to do it with my wife is a dream come true. The fact that my wife gets to raise our kids when when the kids are here, and we want them all the time. But like when the kids are here, she gets to be mommy. You know, the foundation work that we do that comes second to her be a mom. And praise God for that. Their relationships amazing.

Joshua T Berglan 11:34
All right. See, I’m just I, sometimes I get so I’m practicing and visualizing. And as I was talking, it was just seeing all the things that I prayed for. And how God has given that to me, but in the weirdest way. Because it’s not been anything that I thought it would be. And I realized that I just probably stopped in the middle of a sentence again and jump somewhere that happens, I This sometimes happens sometimes I have these little mini switches. And sometimes I’m in and out. Sometimes I’ve like blanked out. I think I did it for like 45 seconds the other day. But I stopped that broadcast and started over because I was embarrassed by it. But you know, the thing is, like I could like I was talking about the drugs. I could have stopped sooner. The party’s got to end sometime. Like it was just eventually just suck my soul. But I had to find something that I wanted that I love more. And I love this work. I love getting to do this broadcast, even though I brain skips out and you know, I’m not going to edit this out. Okay, I love it. I love it that I get to be imperfectly Perfect. Well, it’s probably not correct. I’m a work in perfection. No way. I’m perfection in the works. Yeah. And perfection in the works. There you go. That’s a happy way of saying that I’m a train wreck sometimes. And oh, did I even address Okay, so I got to play a homeless person did it got to be on set. And the cool one of the coolest things about being on set is that you get to watch teamwork. At its greatest. Everyone just stays in their lane, and they do their part. They’re only focused on their part and they do their part. That’s what our purpose is. The purpose of a director is blank, a purpose of a producer is a purpose of a best keyboard grip. The purpose of I made that one up, because I still don’t know what that person does. And but everyone has a role and they stay in their lane you get in other people’s lane, it gets a little funky. And I don’t remember if it was this broadcast, or the one I started to do, but I stopped because my brain skipped out again. But the being like there if we all just this, our purpose is, is so much like the simplest way to define why it’s so special and so important. In the only way to really quantify it as if you’ve seen like how a well run movie set works or commercial set. It’s just boom, boom, I’m only worried about this. Even if you’re the designated keyboard or the the holder of the stacks of papers then the notepad holder. What is that thing called? It doesn’t matter? clipboard holder. If that’s your job. That’s what you do and you do a great and you don’t do anything else. Like that’s for us. Like we sometimes jump over and we look at other people’s lives and we want to jump into her life. And a lot of that times that motivation comes straight from social media. It comes from the fact that it’s coming. It’s coming from the fact that we are influenced by what we see. So what we see on TV, what we listen to in our music, and like that, and they call it programming for a reason, like I stopped listening to music when I worked out the last few days to experiment with something. And I’ve been listening, I found such amazing Christian hip hop, and amazing Christian house music, and I found all I’m no longer bashing the Christian music industry, because I have found some of the most like you like Kings of Leon, I found a Kings of Leon. Boat gospel. You like Thuggy hardcore rap, like I do, like, yeah, give me the Wu Tang Clan, all day long. Well, now. Like now there’s, I mean, I’ve heard a guy that sounds like Drake, and all the all the lyrics are raw, they’re gritty. They’re all the things that you like, about rap.

Joshua T Berglan 16:05
But then the things that you don’t like, like the the bitches and hoes, and, you know, like in sipping on sizzurp, and like the the influences of drugs and addiction and doing all that stuff, like that part is taken out, at least in a, we’re not celebrating that lifestyle. They may talk about that lifestyle, but they’re talking about how they’ve been freed from it. But the lyrics, it’s all this gritty, and it’s awesome. Like, it’s given me so much hope because our dream is to make edgy, real, authentic, faith based films. The devil inside me. We believe that God is going to help us make the full feature length film The devil inside me. And by the way, there’s new tabs, you can buy the devil inside me book on both of our websites now live mana.org It’s right there. Wait, figure that thing right there. If you’re watching. I’m fired up now. I’m awake. But you never know when you must feel like you’re getting a cold and you get really tired. And your eyes get itchy for a second. You know that I have a broadcast in a week and a half and honest to god I wasn’t going to broadcast today. Until I got an email from someone checking on me going Hey, Mr. broadcasts, where are you been? Mike? Oh, that’s nice. I like hearing that. I used to have that when I was on social media. No longer on social media, because I don’t have anything influencing my mind. I’m not trying to live anyone else’s life. Why would you want to live someone else’s life? Like we were created for the specific purpose and like on a movie set that everyone stays in their lane? I was the homeless guy today. So guess what? I got to be the homeless guy on set. That was all I did was be homeless. I mean, I you know, try to bring a good energy to which by the way for having di D. Dissociative Identity Disorder, one of the dangers of trying to switch characters as well as I could switch characters and go to a character that I don’t want to be. That’s happens. Fact Jessica just asked me. Thank you. Okay. You seem a little different. Well, so because I made this comment on set i This by the way, this church the one again, I want to St Mark’s Church in Minneapolis. I think I’m going to show up there. Yeah, I want to show that and it’s just a gorgeous, gorgeous building. And I wonder what singing in that it’s an old cathedral just stunning anyway, train of thought again, I did that again. It’s a frickin

Joshua T Berglan 18:48
I don’t prepare broadcast. I came on here because I miss it. I love broadcasting this is like a way one it can be therapeutic too. It’s just like dad being able to talk and get things off my chest. Three i This is again what I love to do, but I do have a point. So instead of like telling all the stories, because there’s a bunch of I’m going to do this. We’re going to get into some dark stuff. I’m going to try to tie into a message about kingdom right after this. He

Unknown Speaker 20:00
As you

Joshua T Berglan 20:23
here he Alright, we’re back. So we’re going to now tie the reward factor. Like what’s the reward for living the kingdom life? Boy, I was scatterbrained. Anyway, back to life. Now this is going to be solid with the Lord’s help. But I want to show you this, I want to get into this. This is a little crazy. But I’m gonna try to tie this together with the reward factor of living kingdom life. I don’t know how I’m going to do it, but we’re going to try. Okay, there’s dark stuff going on all around the world. Make sure that you guys know what I’m seeing here. All right. I’m gonna actually I want to try something. Like playing around if you haven’t figured this out yet. Okay. I need there we go. visual stimulation for the audience in the background here. That’s why folks you want to watch on camera, not just because you can see my face, but because I guess you never know what you’re gonna get now. And makeup today, because I’m going to try to tie all this in and make it make sense. All right. Jeffrey Epstein. So all this, the thing about the media is that media always shows you what they want you to focus on. So that they can do all the other stuff because you know, you think about it, the camera lens is only so big. So you’re telling your vision when you’re watching the boob tube, you’re telling the vision. And it’s like, this is all you’re seeing it then all these other things are going on. And sometimes the thing that’s on that camera, because you’re focusing, it causes you to forget everything else that you’ve been told. My mom just texted me and said my pictures of maker looks. Mom, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make my mama said never want to make Mama said. But it’s telling your vision. And so it can cause you to forget things. So many people forget, when they were making all of these promises about oh, the job will keep you safe, and it’s gonna be you’re gonna be home free, and then you’re gonna be able to be around your family. Oh, wait, no, you’re not. Oh, wait, no, it may not be the same effective. I mean, people forget, people act like oh, yeah, they just go along with the gaslighting. Like as if it’s what’s been said the whole time. Boy, see when you’re crazy, you know, have multiple personalities or whatever. And look, at this point, I feel pretty normal. And what I love about having D ID, and look, it’s cause problems. But it does help you see things from multiple angles. And one of the things that I learned and if you have di D, I’m telling you, and if you haven’t tried this method, leave yourself notes. When people say stuff to you, when you know something’s important, and you hear in it, write it down, regardless who it is and set in write who said it. Because you’re gonna need to remember that someday. Because if you were hearing that as one of your alters, or whatever you may not, you may lose sight of what’s true, or who’s being honest and who you can trust and who can’t. I used to do this to cover my tracks. But then I used the same skill to learn it. So I how I taught myself what was real, how I learned how to not switch into the alters. I did my own experimenting, but I know what worked for me. So write all this stuff down. And like one of the things that I was always writing down with with what Fauci said. And then, of course, going back and digging into his past life, and his involvement with monkey, not monkey pox with smallpox, and how AIDS was, and just telling you like, why we are trusting these people is blows my mind. So Epstein, the clients of Jeffrey Epstein and Giselle Maxwell, are still pedophiles. They’re still free, and they’re putting innocent kids at risk. There’s so much more going on with this story. But of course, I mean, well, we know I don’t know God. In the Bible, it says all that’s hidden will be revealed. The concentration camps. I actually did a broadcast on this. The concentration camps of the Algarve Muslims are right now in China. And it’s devastating, brutal. That one, I did it Mitchell it’s a conversation with Joshua T Berglund and Mitchell. I forget his last name, but it dives right into the into these camps we live like how we we do business that woke culture is so stupid. And the reason why woke culture stupid is because the things that people are all have their panties in a water about, like

Joshua T Berglan 25:45
who your point like we it’s like we’re defending evil in the name of wokeness. And it’s frickin mind blowing. We will support leaders for this an agenda of whatever it may be. All while that they are committing to this the most hideous crimes against humanity, period. I don’t like that word crimes for humanity. Those words don’t like them. But I mean, like we have world leaders that we’re supporting that are doing this the United States of America. I mean, I’m sorry. I’m not like I love I’ve been looking growing up in America has been amazing. But how America has been empowered state and power all these years? Now, not so amazing. It’s not so amazing. And while everyone’s going after Kanye West, because of what he’s made, the comments he’s making now. Have you actually done any real research into what he’s saying? And it’s not anti semitic immune, he’s talking about a few people. He’s not talking about the whole Jewish population. He’s not saying that. There’s a lot more that’s going into what he’s saying, than most people want to realize that they’re just going along blindly with the media narrative, without actually understanding how all this works. And we don’t have time to go into that right now. But we talked about it on our broadcast. It’s not the first nevermind. Humanity has wiped out 60% of animal populations since 1970. I mean, why would anyone want to kill a rhinoceros? Let’s see what else here. People are dying because they can’t afford the overpriced medication, a very easy save, just price gouging and horrible health care. So the healthcare system in itself is a scam. And of course everyone’s trying to scam edge scam each other to survive. I worked in health care for 18 years. And and this is the thing too, and I’m trying to tie this into purpose. But you can’t be in your purpose. And screw other people over. You can’t work for big pharma and not know in some way, whether directly or indirectly, you’re screwing people over you are part of an evil machine. I this financial system that we’re currently in is demonic. It has to be because it encourages slavery. It encourages slavery. And you can’t live in your purpose if you’re if you’re screwing people over because God didn’t create you to screw people over. God didn’t create you to market medications that were going to cause people disease. Oh yeah, we’re gonna make the your we’re gonna make your butt pain go away, but your penis is going to fall off. We’re gonna, we’re gonna take away the flu from you. But you’re gonna have terminal cancer for the rest of your life. You can’t be living in your purpose, living like that. Oh, you may be a marketing genius. You may be the most gifted salesperson of all time, God bless you. But if you’re using tricks to try to sell people or NLP or anything else, you’re you’re why would why do you need tricks? If what you’re offering is truly valuable. Why do you need tricks? Why do you need techniques? Why can’t you just be honest, this is what my product does. It’s a great product. Here’s all the ingredients. This is where it’s sourced from this is the percentage is done in the product. It is just like up on the up and up and we’re honest. If we were truly honest, the things that we sell half the time we don’t even really know what we’re selling. We don’t know that some of the things that we’re selling had been built or created off the backs of slave labor? I’m sorry, but that’s not right. It’s not right. There’s so many of these issues the pharmaceutical industry now just raise the price of the jab. I’m gonna get Be careful anyway, Saudi Arabia sentencing people to death who refuse to move out of their homes so that they can build neon, the new mega city and their relatives being sentenced to multiple decades of prison time just for protesting or merely posting their support for the cause on social media. Oh, that’s coming worldwide. There’s no more speaking out.

Joshua T Berglan 30:44
Why you need to be independent media and off as a chain like we are right now enjoying censorship free life. Half the stuff I’ve said would have gotten me kicked off social media and we’ve been kicked off social media. We don’t use it. It’s why we have our network. It’s why we need your support to keep going because we can be censorship free. This is crazy to me. Okay. The de force it deforestation of Europe. The last protected ancient forest in Europe, mostly in the east are cut down by big furniture companies from Finland and Austria. The people trying to protect the forest, like activists, journalists, park rangers are being intimidated, beaten and killed. This is none of this screams be like Jesus to me. Even just being a loving person. None of this is of God. Not this is not good. God gave us these trees to us what we need. Yeah, we can cut down trees and build our homes within but like it like are is the way that we’re going about this. Right? Is that sustainable? doesn’t feel like it to me. Okay, let’s see what else is here? Yeah, California is water level is very close to the point where we would need to count down the days months or years of water left. What else? BlackRock, Blackrock is absolutely buying everything. What’s the other BlackRock and Vanguard, they pretty much own everything. I was watching the Spotify. And it’s very interesting, like the influence of money. Money is to me, like, it’s a great tool, and I’ve had money, and I remember those days of just being able to spend money and pretend that it was gonna last forever. And it didn’t much have much more healthy respect for it now. But I was watching the Spotify. There’s the Spotify story called playlist. And it was really interesting to me listening or hearing this stories and hearing the stories from their perspective. But with the all the Spotify creators, when they went into it, it was like they were all about, I can’t say that stealing music was a good thing wasn’t but the intentions. It seemed to be there be a purity behind it, and an innocence and wanting to share and you know, and again, I wasn’t like I felt musicians should be paid. And of course, I know the record companies are just tyrants, but like, I don’t, I believe in like, I love artists, I don’t care what kind of art I can appreciate. If you’re ballerina. You’re an artist, you’re a painter, sculptor, you’re a spokesperson, you’re, you’re an actor. I mean, these are arts, they’re art. Art is an amazing thing. And people should be paid for their art. But their intentions were all good. But maybe it got twisted. Of course, you know spot Black Rock is one of the major investors in Spotify now. And with all of these companies being connected with all of these, you know, you think about Blackrock owning 1000s of companies, right, let’s just say that a 1000s could be more 1000s of companies, they’re all connected and interconnected. All of your information that is all leading up to I mean, like this total surveillance state the fourth industrial revolution where we are heading it’s going to be so different than what we know now. It’s going to be so different. And this is why we preach media so much but Blackrock is I mean there would think about it. Total total totality toto total tell boy that sucks. What I have the word in my head that I want to use. But basically when you know people will have complete absolute complete power over you. And when they have your data and all your information, they have all All that what do you learn about social credit scoring, if you don’t know already bacterial resistant to antibiotics are happening at an alarming level. Yikes.

Joshua T Berglan 35:13
Let’s see. I don’t know if I really want to do all these fisheries, the extent of Fisheries and ocean life’s collapse Alaska, just put the emergency brakes I just now learn how to tie all this together. So now we’re gonna go faster. So what I was doing there was kind of stalling it I’ll share this in the blog too. This this link. Oh, I’m a nurse. I’m the US shorts. I’m the US the short staffing is worse than you think. People think the health healthcare system will collapse or is going to collapse but it’s not it already has. Just because you don’t see the hospitals on fire doesn’t mean that there isn’t some severe staffing and supply shortages. This person says in the EU I’m in the UK. We’re missing 25% of our health and social care worker workers. This person’s blaming back Brexit though. Okay. Women go missing from Indian reservations across some of the US. Many are young women and probably being used for sex trafficking. You think there are some interesting podcasts on a subject? People go missing from truckstops People go missing from reservations people go missing out of their homes at a parks and affairs out of schools. She she’s a thought toward authoritarian rule. That was the word I was looking for. The Wii. Yeah, authoritarian rule. There we go. Democracies going bye bye. That’s what happens with a one world government. 8000 Women are burned to death every year over dowry disputes in India. This figure does not count women killed by other means and women who survive the burning and women killed for reasons other than dowry disputes. I don’t understand, of course, not that America is much better. But I don’t understand for the life of me. How pull us down for a second. I don’t understand how for the life of me. How, like Saudi Arabia, like we’ve blindly supported Saudi Arabia, I don’t know if blindly is the appropriate word that the United States supports Saudi Arabia were in bed with Saudi Arabia workers, corrupt to Saudi Arabia, and the way that they treat their citizens and the way that they treat women and the way like, we’re okay with that. But we weren’t okay with what was going on in Iraq and Iran and Afghanistan. We were to liberate them. But what’s happened in Saudi Arabia? The major Malou I haven’t traveled there. I haven’t seen any of this with my own eyes, but it seems a little screwed up. It seems a little screwed up. Like I don’t understand that. Oh, another thing too. So. I question things. I don’t necessarily believe that Adam and Eve are the first people or at least I don’t believe Eve as the first woman. I believe Lilith was before her and could be wrong. I don’t know. But Lilith, I believe she’s the first woman. I also believe that. I well, I have I’m more convinced of this belief that I am not. But I believe that women. I know that minestrone. But women have the real power. Because I believe if life is a paradox, then it’s got to be the opposite. Because if you assume because I’m a big burly mud, that I should be ahead of the house. But I mean, I am as far as leadership and being a protector. But because being honest are think Aren’t most men that hold their wives high and honor their women. Let women lead in their own way. And in a way I believe women are the real power source because I think a woman’s discernment is what makes her almost Well, I mean, I think we’re all supernatural beings and have that but that gift is so supernatural. So supernatural. And so there’s a reason why married men do better in business. Because I’m telling you, there’s something special about having a woman who is operating in her gift by your side, working hand in hand with you my experience when like everything about what I’ve tried to do with my life has been better because of Jessica. I don’t know why we’re talking about that. Anyway. Oh for Women Women true power. Say mercy. Okay 70% of the world’s chocolate comes from West Africa.

Joshua T Berglan 40:12
Interesting an estimated 1.5 million child slaves. Oh my gosh are engaged in chocolate production. Are you freaking kidding me? An estimated 1.5 million child slaves are engaged in chocolate production in Ghana and the Ivory Coast alone, not counting Nigeria and Cameroon. So chocolate is basically made with slaves to Ah, okay shout out to Tony’s chocolate bars who support slave three chocolate bars. They’re expensive but worth it. Oh my. So the way capitalism really thrives is off the back of slavery is that pretty much what’s going on? Cheese. The permafrost is thawing in Siberia, Canada and Alaska, the methane release rate and pre Ice Age bacteria. Awakening from hibernation will wreak havoc on our world at an unpredictable rate. Wow. So this one has literally bothered me the most literally oceans boiling and lethal steam and gases being whipped around us by storms and wild winds. Wow. suicides in Sydney, Australia. Oh, here we go fast fashion. This one is interesting to me. I’ve read a little bit about this in the past. fast fashion is a human rights and environmental disaster. There are certain parts of human garment. The human garment construction process that cannot be merchandised. So humans have been involved in the production or the vast majority of them are underpaid. Additionally, fast fashion, especially in women’s clothing isn’t made to last. So the fabric and the actual construction is shoddy and the clothes wear out quickly. But fabric recycling is rarely available. So most of the clothes end up in a landfill. Natural fibers release greenhouse gases. Whoa. That’s so crazy. That okay, this is the documentary. It’s about new clothes. Okay, I’m going to share this article. So the like, if you are interested in taking a deeper dive in this, you can mass kidnappings in Nigeria and Africa. They labor us the upcoming FIFA World Cup championships safely use slave labor all over the world. Kidnapping and abusing kids for money. Oh my god, propaganda. Anyway, you get the point. When I’m done doing this, I’ll read it. You guys can read the rest. So here’s how I’m going to tie it into purpose. And we’re going to do this quick. Because here’s the thing. If we don’t want we don’t if we don’t find something that we love, more than having a good time will never amount to being what we’re supposed to be. Meaning. How much time do we spend on Netflix today? How much time we spend on social media day? If you’re I’m not here to judge at all son about judgment. But if you’re not here, if you’re not

Joshua T Berglan 43:58
Do you love what you’re doing in life? Enough to quit wasting time. I mean, going out and having drinks sounds like a good time. How long does it take you to recover? How long does it take you to get back in action? I don’t know. I can’t tell you the part of the rave scene where you you know what? There’s like weeks of time. I mean, it progressively got up there. But I’m so grateful that I found something that I love doing more than anything else. And that keeps me from making the bad choices that would make me throw it all away. But I believe the way you get there is by surrendering what you want for what God wants and then eventually you start to realize as God works on your heart, the things that you actually want or what God wants for you why He created you. And then it all ties together in this beautiful little amazing package. And then you just when your hearts aligned with God’s, you begin to soar, you begin to see the challenges that you face and you will experience challenges. You begin to see it as opportunity as Oh, this is a test. This is testing how much I want this and how much I believe we’re all created to live the life of our dreams. But when you No, I mean this literally so you we’re all created to live the life of our dreams. But then how many people actually quit? Saying I give up I’m never gonna get there. Because they have a month or two or three or four. With no paycheck and bills piling up. How bad do you want it? And some people never even try. Some people are so programmed by their family and friends and church or preacher school, whatever, that they have it in their head. Well, I just I’m gonna troublemaker so I need to join the military and I need to go serve my country and I need to get some discipline. Or well, I need to I gotta I’ve got a baby on the way so I gotta get that job. I gotta I can’t I can’t pursue my dreams. That’s for kids. That’s for kids to pursue my dreams. Didn’t Jesus say something about childlike faith? I don’t remember exact verse, but I’m pretty sure he did. Childlike faith. So what’s the reward? Why would someone say okay world, I’m done with what you have. I’m done playing by your rules. God, I’m going to serve you. Take my life. It’s no longer my own, my own. Take my life. It’s yours I surrender. Use me. Use me as you feel blessed. helped me be everything I was created to be and use me for every purpose that you created me for. When you get to that place. When you get to that place, everything changes. Everything changes. Because it quits becoming about you and remind you, if you’re a narcissist like I was, it takes a little bit longer for it to not be about you. But it still happens pretty quick. You’ll start to hear God say, serve me serve me. Like if you’re still breathing, it’s because God’s not done with you yet. So you have a shot at it. You’re in the game, you have a choice to get in the game. And it’s worth it. So the sacrifice, the pain, the struggle, the the operating, and just faith with no assurances, sometimes feeling as isolated as you’ve ever felt. You feel alone. You’re in a house full of people, but you feel alone. You feel like no one knows what you’re going through. Why would I put up with this when it would be so much easier to do the other way? All those questions that you ask yourself. Here’s the reason or one of the reasons.

Joshua T Berglan 48:57
The reward factor, look, I am coming to you, my reward is with me. I will give to each person accordingly to what they have done. Revelations 2212 I have come to realize that whatever time talent and treasure I have in the in this world will lose their value when I leave this world. Think about it. Everything that we’re pursuing in this world is a fart in the wind. It’s going to be gone when we’re dead. What was it to us nothing. These will do me no good in the world to come their value only last while in this world. It was a light bulb moment for me when I finally came to realize I was spending all of my time, effort and time and effort on things that are in the process of perishing earthly objectives like careers position status, wealth, physical fitness. I gotta work out cops are gonna eat doughnuts, accumulated stuff, etc. are all perishable items. I really wasn’t using any of my resources for God’s kingdom. After I became a Christian, I learned that my spirit is going to last forever. It will only be spent in the presence of the Lord if I have established a right relationship with Him. The time talent and treasure we have all we all have are perishable, but they become imperishable, when we invest them in the kingdom of God, they last forever with ever increasing internal rewards. The time, talent and treasure we have are all perishable, but they become imperishable. When we invest them in the kingdom of God. They last forever with ever increasing eternal rewards. Man bigger house bigger boat thing, I totally get it. I told I want I want a helicopter. I want a penthouse apartment. I want a house in the Hollywood Hills. I want to live in London, I want to live in Tokyo. Oh to live in Sydney, Australia. We’re live all over the world. I want to do a lot of things. But I do not want it more than I want to see my purpose fulfilled. Mind you, I get to do some really cool stuff, and fulfilling my purpose. But my heart’s desires to see the vision of the live mana worldwide foundation come true. The vision for why we created the devil inside me film and book want to see that come and see that spiral into the devil inside the franchise of other people’s stories and books and we have a whole plan. That’s what I want to see happen. Because other people get fed and other people get grow and generational cycles are broken and opportunity is created and legacy is a left. Hope is instill. That’s what it’s about for me. But that’s what God did. Because before that I wanted to be Howard Stern. And Oprah. I mean, I still want that level of success. But only because of what I can do with it. The right things. I mean, like I do want a penthouse apartment in New York and but, but ultimately, I want that more. Because I’d also be happy living out of hotels the rest of my life. I’ll go wherever God wants me to go, getting to travel, getting to use my gift, to help people getting to serve all over the world. That’s for me what we want to do. Anyway, the eternal rewards that will someday we will someday receive should be a huge motivational factor in the life of a believer. The Bible is filled with verses that talk about our eternal reward. And now the prize awaits me the crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge will give me on the day of His return. Second Timothy four eight. Anyone who builds on that foundation may use a variety of materials gold, silver, jewels, wood, hay or straw. But on the judgment, a fire will reveal what kind of work each builder has done. The fire will show if a person’s work has any value. If the work survives, that builder will receive a reward.

Joshua T Berglan 53:51
But if the work is burned up, the builder will suffer great loss, the builder will be saved. But like someone barely escaping through the wall of flames first, First Corinthians 312 to 15. I want to say this too. Now’s the time to live your purpose. Like now’s the time to go for it. Because hanging on to Oh, I got this job and I’ve got to have this job to pay rent and to pay the bills like those days are going away. Those who step forward faithfully and trust God, because everyone that’s hanging on to their job right now. I can put them in they have a relationship with God, I can pretty much guarantee you that God is trying to pull you a different direction. I’m willing to take this Pepsi Challenge I’m not claiming prophecy here. I’m talking. I’m willing to I’m willing to bet if you have a relationship with the Lord. In other words, you read the Bible you’re actively praying and seeking Him You’re in, and you’re hanging on to a relationship hanging on to a job hanging on to you’re saying the words, I would do that. But I don’t know how I’m going to blank that you playing God that you’re playing God. Well, God’s saying, trust me

Joshua T Berglan 55:33
trust me, drop your things come follow me. Let’s go. When we gave our lives to the Lord, that’s what we get to do. We get to serve him. Every one of us. It’s not about perfection. It’s about obedience. And they are not the same thing. It’s about dropping your things, picking up your cross, following

Joshua T Berglan 56:01
Him it is. And following him, you live in your purpose. And what you were created for you and you you act, purposeful purpose like and you do everything you can to become more like Him. And His ways, the way that he expresses love the way he is love. And then all the other little things that people get hung up on, fall away. So we can just focus and now remember what I was saying at the very beginning when I forgot, but we focus on his voice, his calling what he’s calling us to do. And he has a better life for us. The whole economy is going to crash, everything’s going to crash. Everything is going to crumble. There’s a new financial system coming. Don’t know when Robert Kiyosaki thinks it’s next week in November. Who knows? I don’t know, I’m not God. And I’m not saying that God can’t intervene. But I’m pretty sure that God said these things have to happen. And I believe it’s about to happen, like, maybe next week, I don’t know. But you’d think with all these horrible events happening, that it would, you know, like, it’s gonna happen soon. But guess what, that’s okay. God is still in control. God is still on the throne. And oh, by the way, God really does when he did with this is just the theater that gets to play out. Anyway, that gets confusing for people that aren’t believers, to talk to believers for a second. But God has a life for you. And it was a life of freedom. Have to dumb stuff that we do have the resentments and the anger and the depression and the anxiety we have comes from doing things that we know we don’t want to do? No, we’re not supposed to do or really didn’t want to do in the first place. We got really messed up and then made some bad decisions. self created. We give way too much power to other people, we let them hurt us. So much of our crap is self inflicted. But yeah, if we were living purposefully, if we were all in on what we were created for, we wouldn’t have time for any of that stuff. We don’t have time for any of it. Because we would be busy doing what we’re supposed to do. And loving it so much. We have no desire to go back. That’s the power of purpose. You want to live the way God created you to live when you’re living purposefully, because you’re living by the instruction manual, the owner’s manual, of what you were created by. So here we are. We are living in a perishable world, we are going to a world that is imperishable. And the meantime we’re going to be preparing for the imperishable world by being engaged in a transformation process in this perishing world. And we all with unveiled face beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed in the same image, from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord, who is the spirit Second Corinthians 318. what Christ has done for us compels us to be focused on God’s kingdom. I guess I could have just done this broadcast. In one sentence, because that sums it all up what Christ has done for us when we accept that, and put that in our heart. It compels us to be focused on God’s kingdom. In other words, what God wants from us, it’s to bring heaven to earth. That’s how we get to act. Without Christ, I am nothing, I am not the perfect example of a Christian and I don’t want to be, I want to be an example of obedience and redemption. And, and I want to show you that, regardless of what you’ve done in your life, to show that your dreams get to come true. That’s what we do as a foundation. What we do as a network, that’s our whole goal is to elevate you to show you that you are worthy of your dreams coming true. It takes work and commitment, and dedication. You know, I’ve, I’ve been homeless before.

Joshua T Berglan 1:01:06
It didn’t last very long. And it was like glamour, Glamour, homelessness, but nonetheless, homeless. I never looked like this. When I was homeless before. And I never had to go through that. Today, outside when I was outside of the church on Saturday decided to go sit on the, there’s like a building right next to the church. And just, when I’ve seen the building before, when I first started coming to Minneapolis, I used to see homeless people there. So I decided to sit on the steps, and I forgot that I look like this. And now I’m just you know, seeing people smiling today, how you doing? What’s up, just talking to people because like, that’s what, that’s how I work in life. I mean, I, I’ll talk to anybody, like, if we make eye contact, I’m going to try to talk to you. It’s just my personality. And and I had this whole, you know, like in my head. And then when I started talking to smiling, and you know, the people were kind of friendly. And then it dawned on me, I was like, oh, what I look like, I’m like, I don’t really do I really am I even put off the energy of what I didn’t know. And I and I got insecure for a second. Because I didn’t want people to perceive me as a homeless guy. And I didn’t know what that was about. And then I immediately got my head and I started going, I wonder

Joshua T Berglan 1:02:48
like, I wanted to I want to do like I wanted to see if I would be treated differently. You know, like I once I became cognitive again, that I was wearing something wearing this. And I wanted to see because you know, I’ve seen on TV where they have those undercovers people, and it’s like the undercover boss, and they wanted to see if the, you know, the people treated the the undercover person that was undercover homeless, or whoever wanted to see how they treated them. And if they were nice and kind, and you know, and you’ve heard, I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of, there’s like folklore, about certain, you know, gods, which I don’t believe in how they can disguise themselves as being homeless, but they’re really like a god or goddess. So you want to make sure you treat people with kindness. And I remember hearing that in Hawaii, that there was a Hawaiian God, this woman. And if you don’t feed her, you don’t take care of her, then the earthquakes, or the volcanoes come and destroy the city, you know, folklore like that, like so I had in my head, and I was like, I wonder if I should do anything. And that I just did, because I didn’t feel like being an antagonist or even looking looking for misters for trouble. Or then I didn’t even know how I would actually react if somebody was negative to me, like, Hey, I’m not homeless. Like who needs to say that? So then I started self reflecting and going what’s wrong with me? Like, why would I even have this conversation, feel the need to do it? Or even have this thought? And so what’s the point of me saying all that there is none. That’s if there is a point. There is no point except for the fact that I’m telling you a story about what went through my head when I was sitting there on the steps, just like homeless people normally do. People walking by and I’m smiling at people not even remembering what I look like. And then when I became cognitive of it, I started telling myself stories. Maybe it’s to say we gotta be careful we feed our mind with especially if it’s lies. Things that are not true. tell ourselves stories. Pretty scary place to be. I didn’t do a great job. Oh, I’ll tie this into purpose really quick. All the horror stories, life is too short not to go for it. People thinking they have all this time before God returns before the Lord returns. I don’t believe there’s a lot of time. And besides that, why would anyone live their life waiting on Jesus to return? Why not just live your life? And when Jesus returns like, yeah, oh, sweet. Good to see Jesus. Been waiting to meet you. Like that you can enjoy life now, regardless of what’s going on. But you can do that. Living in purpose. That is why it’s so important. And is it worth it? It’s worth it because I think God’s promises are better than the promises does world. God’s promises actually come true. And I believe God when he what he says about our purpose, and why we’re special and unique. I mean, if we’re going to be made in His image, I would think that he’s got some pretty special plan for us. Maybe it’s not being God. But you know, I don’t know if any of us could really handle being God even though we act like we are sometimes. But I want what God has for me. And I promise you that God’s gonna have something special for you. You just got to let him take your life basically dying to self

TRANSCRIPT 

 

Joshua T Berglan 0:01
Hey, what’s up everybody? My name is Joshua, the world’s mayor, I’m so blessed to have you here today. Today we are going to be continuing this discussion on purpose. And today is why is why your purpose is such an integral part of you. Now, this is more interesting than the title sounds, I promise you. And this is literally the fourth time in less than 24 hours that I’ve tried to do this broadcast. Internet towers went out yesterday, electricity went out today when I was trying to do this broadcast, and then it came back to do it again. And then somewhere in the middle of me talking, I just had this brain fart where I’m sitting there for 30 seconds, 45 seconds, maybe even a minute going. What am I thought go my brain right now I’m so I have so much information. I’m so full of information that I just want to like, vomit out on people that what happens is I start talking and then as I’m telling that story, it reminds me of something else. And then I’m like over here, and then I’m like, oh well how am I going to circle back and make it all the way over here? Anyway, then I got lost. I don’t know what’s going to happen when I turned 50 i There’s no telling. I hope that there is a nootropic that is invented that will help me repair my brain. All of the damage that I did to it all those years putting snorting and smoking and shooting all kinds of god awful things. Anyway, so blessed to have you here we are on the live mana Network. Thank you so much for all of your support. Of course we’re a 501 C three nonprofit the bit mana worldwide Foundation. We are a nonprofit media organization that serves well the underserved. We serve the voiceless we serve the people that have been left behind the people that have been rejected from society, the people that normally don’t have access to executive level media training, especially new media. We give the services away. We give we worked with plus to work with prisoners were bused to work with EX convicts were x, we’re blessed to work with families, other ministries, other nonprofits, individuals from around the world. Just yesterday, really excited about this, we have an a ministry in Uganda that’s now doing our media training, which then qualifies them for our one on one consulting, which we give away for free. We don’t put a time limit on people. We do not tell people No. And I mean, look, you do have to do the work. But I mean, we teach you, we show you we’ve done all the work, we make this as easy as possible for you. All you have to do is have some work ethic, and you get to do it. So we have we’ve all it’s interesting to me in America, we finally have, we have groups that we’re working with now, as is. And I love that because it working with groups is really how this gets momentum, what we teach and what we offer. But as a whole, it’s been mostly groups, organizations and individuals from everywhere in the world, but the United States, it’s mind blowing to me how they seem to get what’s needed, more so than anyone else, more than what’s happening in the United States. Now, I believe that there’s a lot of reasons for that, keep it to myself. But nonetheless, we’re here to serve anyone that needs it, we are never going to let money get in the way of helping people get what they need. From us, like anything that we can provide. We’re going to provide, that’s what we do. It’s what we believe in. And we’re passionate about it. And we’re gonna do this until the wheels fall off. And you know, what, every month feels like, the wheels are falling off. Like we don’t we do we try to do this work full time. Although I did get an acting job for next week, which I’m excited about. I get to play a homeless guy. Oh, well, you know, I’ve been homeless, this is great. shooting a commercial for a church of all things, and I get to play

Joshua T Berglan 4:11
homeless guy, so awesome. Anyway. Um, so but we sell fund and we rely on your generosity to keep going. So we are grateful for all of your support. And if you believe in the work that we’re doing, you want to learn more you want to sew into us, you want to partner with us, you want to sponsor us, you want to run commercials on our network, anything like that, or if we can serve you, of course, because we’re here to serve first and foremost, we are here to give our gift away. And because we want to elevate the kingdom, and we want to do God’s the work that God’s called us to do. And we want to bless all of you with that. Like we don’t do everything. We’re not experts in everything. But we are experts in what we know. And that’s what we teach and that’s what we give away. But you can go to live mana.org And you can also scan that barcode There’s a contact page, they’re both at the very bottom of the page, you can send an email that will go right directly to me. And then on the contact page, you can book time with us, there’s several different options, you can book time, happy to talk to you happy to serve, happy to pray for you, anything we can do, we’re happy to do it. And as I said, we’ll keep doing this until the wheels fall off. And every month, it feels like the wheels are about to come off. Because, well, you know, it’s, it’s not easy to run this kind of business. The way that we do it and just give things away. So we really do rely on your generosity. And even if we lose our network, and we lose, you know, the foundation, we’re still going to be here to serve, because that’s what God’s called us to do. So we’re not married to the assets that we have, except my wife and I be married to each other. But, you know, like we’re going to serve, because that’s what we’re called to do. But I would like to keep our foundation going. Because we have a big, big vision, which is in a video, you can actually see it on our homepage of our website. Now we have a very big vision. And some of the changes that you’re about to see on the website, two different changes, is that live mana.org and live Mana worldwide.org are about to become two different sites, which I’m excited about, because I’ve been waiting to do this. And so building another website for us. And what was the point of that? Oh, also, you’re going to be able to see more in depth about our vision, and our goals for the next couple of years. Like what we want to do with the live moto network, what we want to do with our publishing side, we want to do with the production side, what we want to do with the commerce side. And of course, like there’s just a lot going on, that we get to do. And we’re so blessed. And of course, the bigger goal that we have is the media literacy centers that will serve the youth. And of course, people with troubled past people that don’t have, again, the financial access to be able to pay for media trainings and media consulting or people that don’t they want to find a way to say, well, you know what, I’m an artist, like how do I get my message out? How do I get discovered? How do I monetize my art? How do I bring in revenue? How do I do all these things? This is what we’re here to help with. And so it’s interesting, and it’s I guess it probably takes guts because I was that kid. I hated college hated school actually hated coops. I love college because I got the party. But I didn’t really like school itself. I didn’t like high school didn’t like Junior High didn’t like elementary school. I didn’t like any of that. And then of course, when I got to college, like yeah, you’re only teaching that because, you know, you didn’t you sucked in business. So that’s why you’re teaching business. So the irony in that attitude that I had, is now that I’m teaching all this stuff, because I feel led to teach and not go on the business side. Well, here’s why. I didn’t go on the business side of things. Because the people I wanted to help didn’t have the money to pay me. I don’t, I’ll help rich people, no problem helping rich people, but who we are trying to help. The circumstances are a little bit different. So it wasn’t an option to go, you’re gonna pay me. I didn’t want to do that. That’s not what God put on my heart to do. You can challenge me if whether I know what I’m talking about or not do the training. See how it changes your life, the trainings on our website, boy being cocky. But anyway, I’m very confident in my gifting. I’m confident in my purpose. I’m confident in what God created me to do, how it’s all going to work out. I don’t know so much. I never know. I live on faith, a bold faith, a daring faith, a faith that is really quite unsure. It’s quite unshakable.

Joshua T Berglan 9:05
Because I’ve seen God perform miracle after miracle after miracle. And I gotta tell you something, the miracles are fewer and further between now that God knows I trust him, because I guess he doesn’t have to prove himself anymore. Because he’s already done it. And, and he gave me my life back. You know, the life that sir can’t succumb to every kind of bad addiction and just unhealthy lifestyle. Like God gave me the life that he intended me to live back. I have scars from my past. But like I owe God everything. This is why I’m all in. This is why I’m doing this till the wheels fall off. Regardless of what happens. We need your support. We do especially to keep going because our vision when you see how big it is. We need resources for that. We’re looking for buildings if you’re a community center, for instance. Like I want to have my own community centers with. Boy, I’m going to share my vision with you. It’s in the video, I played it in yesterday’s broadcast, but I’ll share my vision with you or the bigger part of it. So we want to create, you know, the Boys and Girls Clubs, boys and girls clubs were these amazing, and they submit, I think there’s still some around I just haven’t seen one in a while. But they have these amazing facilities where people go, and they get you know, there’s different types of fitness and working out and brotherhood and, you know, you you make friends, and there’s community and there’s role models there. And they’re, you know, I love that part of it. And, and, of course, growing up in the church and then sort of being inspired by certain ministries, especially the ones that work with the work in the inner cities that work with the homeless that work with the junkie on the street, and they’re spiritually and in reality feeding and clothing them too. I’ve been inspired by those ministries, inner city ministries, inspire me ministries that, like you’re in Afghanistan, and oh my gosh, I’ve just, I just got asked to go speak there. Why am I they brick kiln slavery? Oh, my gosh. Dr. Abra, lives there, Pakistan dead gummit. Pakistan get asked to go speak in Pakistan. Like, the way that those ministries serve, like that inspires me, because they don’t have the big bright lights and fancy equipment and everything else. Doing like dirt ministry, street ministry like it the real deal. So I’ve been inspired by that inner city ministries, where you may pull in homeless people off the street, and they’re, they’re in the middle of the service, but they’re laying on the side because you’re coming off of something. I love those churches, because that’s what the church should be. Who cares if the people inside are uncomfortable, it’s a hospital for sinners. Not a gathering of saints to party. I mean, it’s it was supposed to be there to feed people and help rehabilitate people. So anyway, our vision is a hybrid of those style of churches, community centers. And of course, Boys and Girls Clubs. So we want to have food, a thrift shop where, look, you can come get clothes, no questions asked. But if you’ve got money, and you’re going to take something, though, tip down, though, donation down food, to be like a food pantry to the function as a food pantry that prepares hot meals that has that there has a congregation where people can go and we can gather together and you can hear speakers and listen, I know. All are welcome. All welcome. Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim, atheist, I don’t care transgender, gay, bisexual, you’re all welcome. This congregation will be a different kind of church. It will be there to show the love of Jesus. But we’re not going to throw the Bible at people. As I know it’s going to be it’s going to be the hands and feet of Jesus. It’s gonna teach what Jesus taught. But it’s not a religious hierarchy and throwing you know, like, Ah, we’re we’re not going to have these arguments where people are fighting over what the scripture is trying to say. It that will never factor in anywhere. Because no one is going to sit and claim that they know, or at least as far as leadership is concerned that they know every little thing about the Bible, and will never be that way. They’ll never be that way. Because no one really knows everything about the Bible.

Unknown Speaker 13:55
No, no one.

Joshua T Berglan 13:58
Except God, of course. Alright, maybe the powers to be maybe the Vatican secrets. I mean, maybe they maybe, maybe they know. But even still, I don’t think they know everything. So anyway. So food, clothing, for congregation classrooms. Classrooms are there and of course, I don’t believe in having anything closed off. So people need to see what you’re doing because look, dealing with people that have gone through, you know, they’ve been trafficked, they’ve been abused, probably have some triggers and some mental uniqueness. The last thing anybody needs is being locked in a room somewhere that there’s no windows and no one can see anything and like it’s a safe place. So the classrooms are there. And then of course, little mini studios, because we want to teach people how to speak on camera. How to broadcast it’s not just about broadcasting. Because in the New World, you’re gonna have to know how to talk when Camera, whether you’re on TV or not, because really TV, podcasts, radio, social media, all this stuff is gonna blend together, it’s, it’s all gonna blend together. And so you are going to have to be a part of this, like your business, no matter what you do, you are not AI proof, not AI proof, you’ve got to be that you got to know media, you got to have the multiple revenue streams, you got to know these things. So we’re going to teach all that to the youth. And for people that are working to rehabilitate their life, that are working to rehabilitate their life that have gone through traffic and gone through abuse, they’ve been in the prison system, they’ve been in and out of foster homes, and they know they, they just know what hell is like. But they’ve made a decision that they want to turn their life around, they want something better, doesn’t mean that they’ve given their life to Jesus yet, it doesn’t mean that they even claim a god as even God yet. We’re trying to meet people where they’re at. But we’re gonna do it with opportunity. Because what’s worse, the, I think the percentage, I’ve done a few anti human trafficking broadcasts in a while. But the percentage of trafficking victims that go back to their captor is like in the upper 90s for a murder somewhere from 92, it’s not 100%. I think it’s like 92 to 96% is somewhere in that range. Right? So it’s not really upper. But you get my point. That’s how many go back. Why did they go back? Well, they’ve pretty much proven it’s because the devil, you know, is better than the one you don’t know. I don’t know you. I know the devil, I don’t like the devil very much. I’d rather not know him at all. That said, I get that description. It’s scary to leave a toxic environment, a toxic relationship, because, well, this person does make you feel good on occasion, even after they’re beating the crap out of you, or cheating on you or whatever. But you keep going back and you keep going back. Because in your brain, you feel like they’re the only ones that can nurse you back to health. Or you’re like, Well, no one else would love me. Because I got a record. And I’ve got HIV, and no one no woman, no good woman is going to love me. So I’m going to sell for this one. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said that to myself. Anyway. So the back to what we were talking about, we want to have also we will have resources in place. So as kids are they’re learning and how to multiply their gift and multiply their talent and expand it and link learning how that they can use it in a way that feels good to them. And they feel safe, and they feel empowered. Because it’s not just like saying here you need to broadcast. It’s not it’s not that media is not broadcasting, it’s one piece of it. Media is so many different things, book publishing, you know, but you need even if you’re an artist, any type of artists, you need media, you need it. And I’m not even talking social media, I’m talking to media. So we want to have experts in place that people that truly understand nutrition, health, mental uniqueness, and also how to help with trauma victims, we want to have those people in place to and because I know that when a kid feels safe. I mean, even Heck, even adults for that pattern. I’ve always taught and said kids, but really, it’s when anyone feels safe, they’re going to tell you the truth. It’s where they don’t feel safe, or they feel that something bad’s gonna happen to me then that they begin to lie. I mean, there’s lots of reasons for lying, but, you know, a safe environment, a secure environment,

Joshua T Berglan 19:00
an encouraging environment. You’re being spiritually and physically fed, you’re being clothed. But you’re also in a community of other people that are like you that want to make a better life for themselves. And so these centers, food, congregation classrooms, little mini studios, you know, art rooms, safe places, also activity rooms, because you got to be active, you got to have health whether, you know, some believers freak out about yoga, but yoga or pilates, you know, I mean, it would be awesome to have a weight room to, you know, different types of therapies. We want to get really crazy. We get into equine therapy, but basically it giant community center that’s meant to encourage community and kingdom and safety and healing and love and education that is preparing kids and adults for what they need to know, not what some school board decided or stay away from conspiracy stuff for a second. I mean, every public education, public school I know of is indoctrination and propaganda. But um, no real education, like skills and tools. In I mean, obviously, it’s, you know, technology is such a huge thing. Like, this is where we’re all going. So like, we need to know these things. And if the school is not preparing them, you’re teaching them how to manage money, teaching them how to, you know, just do the things that were not taught to us in school. So anyway, that’s kind of all over the place. But these are the places that we want to, we want to build and we want to build them in, you know, cities, all inner cities all over the world. Not just I mean, New York, LA, of course, San Diego, Miami, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, in New York City, Boston, Las Vegas, and then Mexico City, London, Shanghai, Johannesburg, Moscow, Shanghai, I think I said Shanghai, already Tokyo, Sydney, all over the world, we want to do this. And we want to be well, this is our vision of church, just not going to call it a church. I mean, essentially, what this is, is a church, what we believe the church should be. And that’s why that’s the bigger vision. And, but obviously, we have smaller pieces that go there, too. So anyway, without going too far into that 22 minutes in, I didn’t do my intro video, and I don’t care. So let’s get into the pursuit of purpose. Because ultimately, this is what I’m pursuing. This is what my wife and I are pursuing. You want to join our team, please do. Again, live mana.org, there’s a contact form. We’d love to have you join us. Whatever gifts and talent you have, we want to help you amplify that. We believe in exchanging value for value. So who cares if you don’t have any money, there’s other ways that you can come on board or I mean, we can we can teach you things we can give you opportunities. There’s we want to trade value for value. And of course, we want to give value everywhere we go. Even if somebody does, it has nothing to offer us. But if you want to join our team, you want to grow, you want to platform, reach out, we’re here to serve. This is our purpose. This is why we’re here. This is our vision. And this is everything to us. And I can’t tell you that this has been easy. I’m not going to tell you it’s been easy. It’s been freaking hard. It’s also been the only thing that’s really brought me any joy. I mean, my wife and kids bring me joy. I’m talking about like personal stuff, like, you know, like, personal goals. And I had all these other secular goals. And I have some of them, I still have some of them. I still want to do a world tour and still want to do. You know, I want to travel all over the world and speak and serve. That’s ultimately what I want to do. Like basically the places I travel where we want to put these community centers. And if we don’t get the buildings for it, well guess what, if you have your own community center, let us come in and help. We want to come teach, we will kind of want to come work, we’ll help you market and promote we’ll do anything we just want to serve. And the fact is, we know it works. We’ve served

Joshua T Berglan 23:58
what does that say? Eight ministries that make that nine? Well over 250 broadcast, eight new TV shows 50 individual consulting calls, which actually that went up because we did to yesterday, and more people have watched the media training. We’re serious about this. So you want to join us. Come on. Really appreciate it. All right. I’m gonna take a deep breath now. All Fired up, shuffling paper. Let’s get into purpose. Your purpose is an integral part of you. Like the manufacturer who created the electric fan for a specific purpose. So God created you with a definite purpose in mind. Your existence is evidence that this generation needs something that your life contains your life. You are the creation that can meet God’s desired result. consummating the purpose does not just happen as a byproduct of life. You’re responsible for the intentional fulfilment of your purpose. So the world may benefit from your contribution, just like the millions of people are benefiting, benefiting from the purpose of the electric fan. Let me read that, again. You are responsible for the intentional fulfillment of your purpose. So the world may benefit from your contribution, just like millions of people are benefiting from the purpose of electric fan.

Unknown Speaker 25:29
It’s your responsibility.

Joshua T Berglan 25:33
You can’t blame anyone else for you, not living your purpose. There is no one to blame, even if you’re in jail. And I’m talking to people in jail right now. Even if you’re in jail, even if you’re locked up in a shadow prison, and you’re not getting out, as far as what they tell you.

Unknown Speaker 25:57
It does not mean

Joshua T Berglan 26:00
that you get to give up on your purpose.

Unknown Speaker 26:06
It’s why you’re breathing.

Joshua T Berglan 26:11
And every day that you don’t do what you are called to do, what you’re being led to do, you are denying God and the process. Some of you don’t believe in God, so you don’t care. Let me just tell you. It’s a dead end path. Living the life that you are created to live is the ultimate freedom and you can do it anywhere. You can do it anywhere, it may not be to the level that you think that you’re or, I mean, maybe you’re gonna get there. Right? Put in your mind like you see the stage, you see the bright lights, you see the you know, traveling and going to different countries like I that’s what I see. Not there yet. I’ve only gone to a couple of different countries. Of course, producing that offended extra city was cool. But anyway. I haven’t done all that yet. But the fact is, I’m living my purpose. Now. I’m doing all the things that I’m supposed to do that will eventually get me to where I’m spoilt that where I see where I believe God has got to show me that I’ll go but I also believe that I will go even further than that. Because God always over delivers on his promises. The dream dreams and visions, visions you’ve had of this better life, this life that’s better than the one you’re living now. That’s God showing you what’s possible. But it’s even better than that. And I haven’t even had my better than that yet. As far as the bigger thing. But along the way, on this path, there’s little things that drop in here and there to remind me that I’m on my way. And then when there’s a little revelation that revelations even better than what was originally believed how it happened.

Joshua T Berglan 28:25
But it takes you deciding and committing to pursuing said purpose and being willing to do the things that it takes to get there. And so one of the questions that you can ask yourself is, what am I doing right now? With my time, my talent? Am I treasure? Are those things serving God’s purpose?

Joshua T Berglan 28:58
are they contributing to the life that you want to live? In other words, the time I’m spending, doing whatever it is that you’re doing? Is that going? Is that sewing in the direction that I want to go? Or is it like completely the opposite? Do you have an obsession with sex? That you’re spending hours of your day hunting and searching for something when you should be doing something that’s going towards showing God that you’re serious about your dream and vision? And I didn’t just say that to judge. I said that because that’s been my biggest struggle. When I get stressed out. I want crazy sex and You know, course crazy sex can be defined by whatever. But it’s let’s just say that my old way of doing things is what I begin to crave when I’m stressed out, because that is always how I dealt with stress, or pain, or joy for that matter. I dealt with my problems with sex and drugs together. So, if I’m spending my days kind of pursuing those things, or even flirting with going to do those things, am I really showing God that I’m serious? And this could be, but you could ask yourself about social media, how much time you’re on social media, how much time you’re spending, watching Netflix, and so on, and so on. And I’m not saying that you don’t spend time on social media or Netflix. I’m not saying that. But how much time are you spending there? Like, lay it out? Are you spending more time learning about God? And what God wants from you for meeting his word? And spending time with him to hear Him and His Word? Are you spending more time? With everything else? I can’t answer that. But when I asked myself that question, I started taking making a list going my god is spent four hours today that I could have been doing. I could have been doing a broadcast could have been, you know, helping someone else could have been reaching out to potential sponsors. But here it is, I’m screwing around and social media on porn or whatever. Not saying I did that right now, or yesterday, or the day before or the day before or the day before? But I mean, this is one of those questions that I have to ask myself. Because in the past, I have allowed myself to get distracted with things that don’t matter. Getting off social media has been the best thing in the world for me. Period. Okay. Your personal fulfillment is only your personal fulfillment is possible only in so far as you complete your destiny, what’s your personal fulfillment is possible only in so far as you complete your destiny. This, the discovery of your personal purpose and its relationships to God’s universal purpose must be the basis from which you live, you must strive to be who you were born to be. This means you don’t live someone else’s life. This is why social media is a trap. Because you’re looking and you’re scrolling and going, Oh, God, I want their life. They got to go to Fiji. And look at that thong. And oh, that champagne glass, the private jet and the big boat I want to take. I want to take a nap on a big boat. I want to go dancing till 4am and a visa. Like

Unknown Speaker 33:22
I want to be

Joshua T Berglan 33:24
shooting the devil inside me full length feature film, I want to create the devil inside me. The franchise where we tell other people’s stories like I mean, the deeds are the things if I saw someone making a film, my immediate thought, I want to do that. I want to do that I’m watching the it’s called playlist. And it’s it’s kinda it’s kind of shot like the dirt from Motley Crue. If you’re ever if you ever read the book, the dirt, or even watch the movie, the way the story is told. It’s kind of it’s kind of cool, because it’s told from each band members perspective. Well, this playlist is about Spotify. And it’s told through the main people that got it launched their perspectives wildly different but it’s really inspiring it’s really really inspiring for me to watch and what was the point in me bringing that up Oh, well I mean, oh, I know what I think I know what it was now. Gosh, I hate it when I brain fart like that. The

Joshua T Berglan 34:41
there was this relentless. This is not the point but this one came to me. There was this relentless

Unknown Speaker 34:48
passion

Joshua T Berglan 34:50
to achieve an impossible goal. A determination and all in like no crap willing to risk it all. willing to risk it all to bed at all the originators, the founders, were willing to bet it all to make it happen. And to do the impossible, going up against the music industry, which that story didn’t end up exactly as I think the way that they originally intended it for. But the fact is, they were doing the impossible, even the programming to get the speed down where it was instantaneous. And like how it all was created. It’s just amazing. And so it’s inspiring me to watch, because I’m watching the, the trials and the tribulations, and the struggle, and the doing the impossible. But there was a vision. And that vision, I believe is a promise. And that promise is worth pursuing. And they did it. And then they accomplished it, of course, and Spotify is what Spotify is now. And of course, it’s owned by BlackRock and it has nothing to do with when it was originally intended to be. But nonetheless, how it got there is inspiring. And, and it’s fuel for me to watch. I love watching stories like that, because it gives me hope. How many of you have an impossible dream? Maybe your impossible dream is getting out of your shadow prison? Well, if that’s really your dream, maybe there is a way. And what I know about God is that He makes a way when there’s no way in why you got to talk to him, and then also shut up and listen is because he’ll give you instructions, especially when you ask for them. They don’t always come right away. It’s not like, Hey, Siri, hey, Google, and they pop up. I have my phone on airplane mode. Or she would talk back to me. It’s not like that. I wish some I mean, I know that we wish God was like Siri sometimes as far as the instantaneous answers. But you know what? That instantaneous answer doesn’t always give you what you’re really looking for is it

Joshua T Berglan 37:18
it’s, in fact, the synthetic version of everything is not really what we want.

Joshua T Berglan 37:33
I had so many wild things that go through my head, about all the different directions I would go down, but I would totally get lost. So I’m not gonna go there for your sake. It had been fun for me to like, try to connect all that. But you must strive to be who you’re born to be. There’s no point in trying to live someone else’s life. You can look at someone else’s life and it can inspire you. You can learn from them. Obviously wanna learn from people who’ve been there, your path Your life was meant for you. As you discover who you are, you will learn that your purpose, your identity, your uniqueness, and your potential are inter dependent. You cannot truly know thyself, as the great Greek philosophers admonished until you discover your purpose. This is true because known purpose reveals the particular components God built into you, to enable you to achieve all that he prepared for you. Nothing is truly yours until you understand it. Not even yourself. Some people are born knowing what they must want to do, and even how to do it. The rest of us must spend hours figuring figuring out what to do with our lives. Vague goals, such as I want to be happy. I want to be I want to make the world a better place to live, or I want to be rich, or pretty useless. We must ask the primary question, why am I here? Write that down. Why am I here? Reply with an unqualified answer. To be myself and express myself fully. Be yourself. Know your identity. And even if you’re not sure, walk out the identity that you are sure of. Whatever part of you walk that out, be that walk in it. Why? Because if it’s not really you, God’s gonna show you that too. But when you’re living in your truth, that means living your purpose, being honest, have an integrity, and you’re living in your truth. You will attract your tribe. You will attract the people that belong in your life but When you’re living a lie, when you’re trying to live someone else’s life, they ain’t showing up. It’s not what you want. Concern for doing the right thing, rather than a desire to do things right must always guide you. The right thing is the purpose for which God created you and gave you breath. You are special and unique. God made you from the original mold and throw it away when you were completed. Check out your uniqueness and find out what differentiates you from the billions of people who inhabit this planet. Here’s the thing, fly your freak flag. Like if you’re a toad liquor, or you’re a you know, you’d like to paint trees or icicles, or whatever. Amory, you’re just like, whatever your goofy thing is that you think is so weird. And like, you’re like, Well, I’m the only one that looks at i. No one. No one likes me. I’m freaking nuts. Right? I trust me. If you’ve ever been on Reddit, there’s probably a subreddit for your weird thing. You’re not alone.

Unknown Speaker 41:09
You’re not alone.

Joshua T Berglan 41:14
I mean, we can go secular with this. And we can talk about weird fetishes and weird kinks. And like, men, men lie about what they really want. Because they think well, no woman is really going to do that. Or whatever their interior No, dude, it’s gonna be like, dress up in my mother’s clothes and shave my back. I mean, cuz that’s, like, I know, that sounds insane. But guess what, there’s people into that.

Unknown Speaker 41:38
You’re not alone. Because

Joshua T Berglan 41:44
I’ll tell you who’s alone. The person trying to fit in the most lonely freaking experience there is. Because when you’re trying to be someone else, and you’re around all those people, they’re not really there for you. You’re trying to conform to them. And guess what? You may be in that group. But if you do anything to upset the flow of that group, you’re not in that group anymore. happens at church all the time.

Unknown Speaker 42:16
It does.

Joshua T Berglan 42:17
Thieves have more honor than most church congregations. Thieves. They live by a code they have their What do you call it their covenant? But I mean, even if you are, you know that you’re a cheater. We can be honest about it. Quit trying to convince people that you’re going to change for that relationship. You’re not just saying that you don’t believe in monogamy. Walk that out. You may be surprised what happens. You may meet somebody else that doesn’t believe in monogamy either. And then you get together. And then you start doing your non monogamy things. And then guess what? Then you start sleeping with other people. And then you find out that your partner, what she saw was somebody that was better looking than you and then all of a sudden when you second maybe I don’t like this monogamy thing, or this non monogamy thing after all, because, I mean, it was one thing when I was getting to have sex with everything that walked but

Joshua T Berglan 43:37
you get your cat a little jealous, right? It teaches you something. Like we think that we want things a certain way until it comes right back to us. And then all of a sudden, we got to face that. And it’s like, shoot, crazy experience happen. I don’t even know why I’m telling you the story, but I’m going to tell you anyway. So crazy experience. Wait, how do I tell the story because I don’t want to bash anybody. Basically, so my wife asked a lot of questions. These questions get sometimes they’re really freaking annoying, because I have answered the question already in my mind 15 times. She’s asking 15 different ways. But I’m given the same answer because my brain is hearing it the same way. And like every time she asked me the question, I’m like, Do you not believe me like what the crap is going on? But really, it’s her need to understand? Well, it happened to me yesterday, meaning that I started asking somebody a bunch of questions because I needed to understand and that my questions were pissing off this person. Well, as this is happening, and the person’s going off on me, a person that I love, by the way, but as they’re going off on me, I’m sitting there thinking in the back of my head, oh my gosh. Isn’t God interesting? I’m sitting here going I’m only asking you questions that I need to know from my own need to know. And you’re wanting my help in wanting my credit card and wanting this, but I have questions that ask that I’m in the right to ask. And now I’m being screamed at for asking questions. And it dawned on me, this is how my wife feels when I get mad that she’s asking questions. There was a mirror. It was like, it was God revealing something to me, but I now get to work on. I thank God for that. That’s amazing. I don’t even know why I told you that story. So we’ll continue. This has happened now twice in the same broadcast. Check out your uniqueness, and find out what differentiates you from the billions of people inhabit this planet. Within purpose, then purpose, your aspiration deliberately and consistently. Be what you are, capitalize on the natural skills and talents with which you were born and don’t lose them. When others belittle your special gifts and try to remake you, according to their plans and purposes, refused to yield to their domination. Don’t let anyone prevent you from becoming and doing all that you were born to be and do. No one has that power over you unless if you give it to him. Remember, if you don’t deploy yourself, others will soon employ you. If you don’t deploy yourself, others will employ you. Above all else purpose of sorry, above all else, pursue purpose with passion and experience. The reason for your life the purpose of a man’s heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out. Proverbs 2025 All right. So here are the principles of purpose the human need for personal meaning and satisfaction is universal. We all want to matter we all want to have satisfaction. We all want to be able to say to look at our work and go It’s good like when God created us it was good. Until of course sin corrupted us but it was good when we were created number two personal fulfillment is the only true measure of success I don’t know why I’m personally fulfilled is when I’m doing using my gifts and my talents there’s a selfish fulfilment to that but when I’m using it to try to you know to bless others to help others to serve to elevate the kingdom it’s the most satisfying thing I know and it feels like success to me I’ll tell you what does it feel like success

trophies don’t feel like success to me do to do to do to do come here? No, no, no. Come here. Camera. Follow me. There we go. Come on. Okay. Come on. Follow me. That’s not fun for the radio audience. trophies are not fulfilling at all. I, I thought I’d be good doesn’t mean anything. It’s pretty sitting in the thing though, on the shelf. And you know what, that’s for voiceover using my gift. Right? If my voice is a gift, of course, the voice is how I can earn money but the devil inside me at one Las Vegas Film Awards for Best voiceover for our film that our concept film that we believe God is going to help us make the bigger film so we can create the franchise that tells other people’s stories and they get the money. That’s also part of the vision. Everything in life has a purpose. True. Purpose is the original intent and the The mind of the Creator that motivated him to create a particular item when they say there’s a reason for everything, purpose always precedes production. A you things begin and end with purpose. God created you with a definite purpose in mind. All right. So I’m going to stop there. So grateful again that you were here today. And I love this these purpose books. I love Dr. Myles Munroe. I like this book in pursuit of purpose. It was written like 3040 years ago, and some of the stuff that it’s talking about, like with the warnings are playing out before eyes today. It’s wild. It’s wild.
