GL: Well yeah, you know I think I mentioned this maybe in the workshop last night, is that we have this notion that the horse and cart equation is that you've got to first identify your passions or your callings, and then begin taking risks on behalf of them, right? And that's one way to do it, the flip side is I think equally valid, is that you only figure out your calls and your passions by taking action, by going. By taking off on the path even if you're not sure it's the path, right? And looking at the feedback that your life gives you, you know? But the clarification comes in the risk taking, in the willingness to go, not entirely sure the destination, but feel pulled or pushed by a deeper force inside you; call it God if you will, call it source or soul or spirit, whatever, you know? But the willingness to just move toward what feels like the call and discern it as you're going I think is equally valid.

Rob: And I think you - we're not going to get into in a great detail, but two other things you talk about in the book is trust in the unconscious and I think that's part of what you're getting into here.

GL: Sure, absolutely. In some way the unconscious is smarter than the conscious mind and to be willing to trust the messages that come from it is an acquired taste, but I think it's greatly valid.

Rob: Okay, so just to rap up, I wanted to find out a little bit more about how people can learn more about you and what you do. I mean besides just you've written these incredible wonderful books that I can't emphasize strongly enough, this close to two hour interview just touches on the surface of.

GL: Yeah.

Rob: But, what - you do workshops, you give lectures, talk a little bit about that and if people want to find out about you and -

GL: Sure.

Rob: And take advantage of what you do.

GL: Yeah, well I mean world headquarters for me anymore is simply, two G's on Gregg. That's where people can find out what I do and where I do it and when I do it.

Rob: You've got a very ambitious, aggressive speaking lecture -

GL: Yeah.

Rob: - schedule.

GL: Yes, absolutely. I mean especially in the next four months on behalf of the new book, I'm all over the country, even a couple of forays out of the country, but they're just workshops, lectures, retreats that are just about the subject of this skill of passion. So they're just hands on opportunities for people to explore what does their life force want from them at the moment? So that's it, it's just really the website is really where you can find out all that info.

Rob: Okay.

GL: Yeah.

Rob: Thank you so much.
