00:00:37.720 --> 00:00:52.670 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Good afternoon. Good evening. Good morning. Wherever you're tuning in from welcome to the conscious consulting hour awakening humanity. I am very, very pleased that you are all here with me today.
00:00:52.670 --> 00:01:08.730 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I've got a wonderful guest on my show today. I've been looking forward to bringing him on for quite a while. He introduced through a friend. And actually I've had several people tell me. Oh, you got to know this guy. He's a great guy. You gotta. I'm on your show. I'm like, okay, let's do it.
00:01:09.030 --> 00:01:28.910 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So i'm very excited to to get to my guest in a moment. But first, of course, we have my little section of my book, Everyday Awakening, and let's get to it so I can introduce them to you. So this week. Our section is called
00:01:29.310 --> 00:01:35.510 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Intention and inflection are the foundation of all that we do.
00:01:37.380 --> 00:01:42.110 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: The intention with which we do anything is very powerful.
00:01:42.170 --> 00:01:47.520 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It creates the energy that is the foundation of all of our actions.
00:01:48.570 --> 00:01:58.910 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It is like the inflection we use when we speak the same word, can have 2 totally different meanings depending on our tone of voice.
00:01:59.590 --> 00:02:06.680 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Are we doing something out of a feeling of guilt, or shame. or out of joy and contribution?
00:02:06.810 --> 00:02:20.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Are we looking to serve and help others? Or are we out for our own benefit? Are we giving from a place of abundance and flow? Or is it a transaction that we are waiting for the return on.
00:02:20.300 --> 00:02:28.290 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Of course, more often than not, our intentions are mixed and not purely one thing or another.
00:02:28.680 --> 00:02:32.970 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: That's okay. As long as we are aware of it.
00:02:33.980 --> 00:02:40.130 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Knowing what our main intention and our secondary intentions are, is valuable.
00:02:40.590 --> 00:02:56.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Often we can see how they play out in our interactions with others, and most obviously in our results. Awareness is the first step to understanding and making a change to how we do anything
00:02:56.510 --> 00:03:11.740 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: instead of running by default. We can be more intentional with our actions by taking the time to be quiet, and think and feel about what we are about to engage in.
00:03:11.900 --> 00:03:16.730 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Does this action we are about to take make us feel good?
00:03:17.150 --> 00:03:19.630 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: The deep down inside?
00:03:19.700 --> 00:03:27.070 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Does it make us feel that we are a Creator, and not a victim does it reflect our power
00:03:27.280 --> 00:03:31.150 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and our beauty, or our fear and our pain
00:03:31.630 --> 00:03:44.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: determining our intention is a powerful first step. We just have to take the time to make it a priority in our life. So what is your intention?
00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:52.220 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So I I wrote this section of my book a while ago. and it I
00:03:52.350 --> 00:04:02.490 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I wanted to kind of bring these 2 different topics together of intention and inflection, because the things that I've often spoken about separately.
00:04:02.770 --> 00:04:07.350 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But then I saw how they actually weave together.
00:04:08.290 --> 00:04:09.650 because
00:04:10.530 --> 00:04:18.100 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: our inflection actually reveals what our intention is. So so what do I mean by inflection?
00:04:18.300 --> 00:04:33.010 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So the inflection with which we do something, and it and it's not just about sound. It's not just about vocal quality. but our inflection is like the the color with which we paint
00:04:34.060 --> 00:04:38.020 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: it's it's. What is it? How
00:04:38.970 --> 00:04:42.960 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: it's how our real intention is revealed to us
00:04:43.470 --> 00:04:46.010 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: when we engage in something.
00:04:47.280 --> 00:04:57.120 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: whether it's a conversation with a friend, or you're talking to a prospect. or you're You're talking with a family member.
00:04:58.730 --> 00:05:06.610 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: if it's more important for you to be right than to be kind that's going to
00:05:06.650 --> 00:05:20.200 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: taint that interaction in a certain way. That's the inflection. It's. It's the underlying motivation. It's the underlying energy with which we engage in things.
00:05:21.400 --> 00:05:24.240 Now our intention is really like.
00:05:24.710 --> 00:05:30.270 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Why are we doing this? Well, what? What? What are we looking to happen from this interaction.
00:05:31.740 --> 00:05:35.910 and an intention, and a lot of people talk about intention.
00:05:37.340 --> 00:05:44.140 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and and there are a lot of different exercises out there to help us with, with with being intentional around things.
00:05:46.770 --> 00:05:53.540 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and it was just that it taking the time because I find so often we know these things.
00:05:53.800 --> 00:06:06.450 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: We even practice them sometimes. But I know for myself how often I get so busy, and then get tied up. And i'm running from one Zoom Meeting to another Zoom Meeting to having to take care of this or that.
00:06:07.720 --> 00:06:17.990 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and I sometimes forget to really be mindful of what my intention is behind taking all these actions and and doing all these things.
00:06:22.000 --> 00:06:26.100 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: but my inflection how I show up in them.
00:06:27.680 --> 00:06:35.650 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I believe, and I could be hallucinating this. But I believe when I talk with people when I meet with people. When I work with people.
00:06:36.820 --> 00:06:42.320 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: they can tell that my inflection is primarily coming from my heart.
00:06:42.460 --> 00:06:49.290 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It's primarily about. How can I be in service. How can I help? How can we make the world a better place?
00:06:51.130 --> 00:06:56.520 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And so, by that sort of being my overall
00:06:56.730 --> 00:06:59.230 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: palette with which I paint.
00:07:00.860 --> 00:07:03.920 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Even when I forget to set my intention.
00:07:04.370 --> 00:07:08.480 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: people still feel my energy. They still
00:07:08.580 --> 00:07:13.080 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: can sense where my motivations are coming from.
00:07:14.750 --> 00:07:18.040 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And so that's why I say that these 2
00:07:18.540 --> 00:07:22.070 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: aspects of intention and inflection
00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:32.850 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: are so inter woven, and and so are so important with what we do and in and they really can't separate them too much.
00:07:33.250 --> 00:07:36.610 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I mean you can try, but it it just doesn't work
00:07:36.710 --> 00:07:44.460 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: because we are who we are. and you know there there are definitely some people out there who were great at faking it.
00:07:45.900 --> 00:07:48.290 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But if you spend any real
00:07:48.600 --> 00:07:53.030 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: time, and you have some some in-depth conversations with them
00:07:53.290 --> 00:08:02.760 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: where they're coming from what will very obviously be revealed. So that's why I just let's for this week our homework let's.
00:08:02.970 --> 00:08:06.530 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Let's be mindful of our intention and our inflection.
00:08:06.750 --> 00:08:14.220 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and especially our inflection around our words. You know. How is it coming out? You know it's often said that what
00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:19.280 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: comes out of us is, is much more important than what comes into us.
00:08:19.330 --> 00:08:22.710 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: because what comes out to us really shows where we're at.
00:08:23.150 --> 00:08:53.080 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So that's the my little section from my book every day awakening that section is entitled Intention and Inflection are the foundation of all that we do, and that, of course, is is from my book every day awakening which you can email@example.com and it's available, and all the major booksellers, and if you're like me and you like supporting the small independent bookstores. You can always go to your independent bookstore, and if they don't have it, you can ask them
00:08:53.080 --> 00:09:20.240 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: to order it because we're in all the major distributors, so so they can actually order the book. Just tell them to get this book. It's a great book, actually a small little bookstore in my neighborhood. It's a not a bookstore. It's a it was a drugstore pharmacy, but they have books from local author. So I went in there one time, and I said, oh, would you be interested in carrying my book short? And I went in there. I sold them a few books, a wholesale. Actually, I have to go back and see how that's doing, anyway. So now it is my pleasure
00:09:20.350 --> 00:09:26.350 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: to welcome to the show professional executive coach and
00:09:27.070 --> 00:09:47.820 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Internet and and modern day mystic Bob Rousseau. Bob has accomplished a many great things. He has enjoyed a rewarding career at Ibm and retired as an executive after 33 years there. Wow! Bob was married to the most amazing woman on the planet, he says, but he risked everything when he came out as being gay
00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:52.950 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: when he was 45 years old. After 25 years of marriage
00:09:53.390 --> 00:10:04.450 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: the risk paid off in Bob's family life and career thrived. He's currently married to an the most amazing man on the earth, of course. How can he be married to anyone else and his former wife.
00:10:04.690 --> 00:10:15.680 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: even a Bk. It came to their wedding ceremony with a prayer, and one of his sons was his best man. So obviously they worked through whatever challenges there might have been
00:10:15.890 --> 00:10:29.890 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Bob works with people who are at the top of their profession, people who take charge. They can be chief officers, senior leaders, performers in the arts, athletes, and spiritual leaders. Bob has dedicated his life to working with people
00:10:29.960 --> 00:10:37.060 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: just like this to find new pathways to greater heights in business career and life.
00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:48.780 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Bob is a former member of the Board of Directors of the International Coaching Federation, New York City Chapter, and it is my pleasure to welcome Bob to the conscious consultant hour. How you doing today, Bob.
00:10:48.780 --> 00:11:03.280 Bob Russo: I am doing great. Thank you. This this is my pleasure. Actually it'd be here, Sam, I I love being with you, so this is my pleasure, but I i'm glad it's your pleasure also, and it's funny I wasn't a bit nervous about doing this, but as you were reading my little bio there.
00:11:03.280 --> 00:11:19.680 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and you got to the point of all these little parts in my life where I had to change and take a risk. I started getting nervous again.
00:11:19.900 --> 00:11:24.260 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: but it wasn't so easy to do it at the time, was it?
00:11:24.340 --> 00:11:43.920 Bob Russo: No, it wasn't, and and and it's funny. It's not so easy to listen to it to remember that that was me through all of that, and I hope that a little bit of that comes out in this interview today, too, about taking risks about following your spirit, about knowing where you're going, and I love your introduction about intention
00:11:44.730 --> 00:11:46.040 Bob Russo: that was phenomenal.
00:11:46.510 --> 00:12:02.130 Bob Russo: I appreciate it with everything you said there, I would love to continue a little bit more discussion on that whenever you want. But that was perfect. That was powerful and perfect. Absolutely. It's it's kind of funny how you know. I'm just going in order of of the sections of my book.
00:12:02.130 --> 00:12:09.730 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But somehow. Whatever comes up that day is perfect, for whoever the guest is, or whatever the conversation happens to be that day.
00:12:09.780 --> 00:12:25.670 Bob Russo: and i'll tell you why it is, is perfect for me. Couple 2 reasons. One, I went on, a a very powerful spiritual retreat, this past December with a great spiritual leader, and his whole week with him was all about intention and intent. I mean, come on.
00:12:25.670 --> 00:12:33.810 Bob Russo: and this is what i'm like. I'm so like not i'm crappling with like, what does this mean? And you now you bring an inflection. I love that. That's a third element.
00:12:33.980 --> 00:12:53.190 Bob Russo: because there's intention which is like, what do I want to do in the world. What do I want to do? Intent is what I actually do. That's my intent. Now my question I love, that is my color. How do I color it? What energy do I bring into it? Is it positive energy? Is it negative energy? I love that?
00:12:53.270 --> 00:12:59.130 Bob Russo: And the thing that I am practicing since I did this, and I will offer it to your audience.
00:12:59.430 --> 00:13:07.130 Bob Russo: It's it's a it's a simple practice in every moment of every day thinking about this, and you can do this even on reflection.
00:13:07.210 --> 00:13:13.970 Bob Russo: to make sure that your intent, your intention, and your inflection, are all in alignment. I look at 4 things.
00:13:14.060 --> 00:13:15.580 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I thought.
00:13:15.650 --> 00:13:17.430 Bob Russo: because everything is a thought
00:13:17.500 --> 00:13:19.760 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: who starts as a thought.
00:13:19.790 --> 00:13:23.680 Bob Russo: so as as my thought, in alignment, with my feeling
00:13:24.000 --> 00:13:28.660 Bob Russo: like, what is my thoughts and my feelings in alignment.
00:13:28.920 --> 00:13:31.470 Bob Russo: and then on my feelings and my
00:13:32.010 --> 00:13:49.920 Bob Russo: words in alignment, because what I bring into the world our first thing is my words. That's how I create anything in this world is to first create it in words. So my thoughts, my feelings, and my words are and are in alignment, and then on my actions in alignment with all of that
00:13:49.920 --> 00:14:06.950 Bob Russo: M. That's the intent and the inflection. How am I bringing something into this world into the world of 3D. From my thoughts to my feelings, my words, and my action. If all of them are in alignment, i'm living my most perfect experience in life at the moment.
00:14:06.950 --> 00:14:13.400 Bob Russo: But if my thought and my feelings are not in align with my words, that's how many times you you said, how we hide.
00:14:13.560 --> 00:14:17.810 Bob Russo: or we're not really true. As to what we want to say.
00:14:17.880 --> 00:14:19.510 Bob Russo: It takes a lot of energy
00:14:19.790 --> 00:14:26.270 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: it does, and you see, that's where also the inflection comes in, because
00:14:26.570 --> 00:14:39.860 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: if if the the thoughts and the words and the actions are not an alignment, then something just won't quite sound right.
00:14:39.860 --> 00:14:57.900 Bob Russo: If you're not even aware of it. But I love that infection, inflection, getting everything in alignment. Your inflection is going to be at the highest level of highest frequency. It is always going to be for the greater good of yourself and everyone else, that that I look at, that every single day.
00:14:57.900 --> 00:15:08.950 Bob Russo: What my thoughts, my feelings, my words, and my actions in alignment. Did I do what I actually wanted to get done, or what I was coming from to get done, or was I hiding?
00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:10.260 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Hi
00:15:10.360 --> 00:15:11.080 2

00:18:16.340 --> 00:18:23.910 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and welcome back to the conscious, consulting hour awakening humanity. We're speaking this hour with Bob Rousseau.
00:18:24.000 --> 00:18:28.520 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So, Bob, you're one of those rare individuals like myself, who.
00:18:29.660 --> 00:18:49.150 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: very grounded, very practical, worked in the corporate world for many years. But you also have a a very spiritual side to you, and i'm just curious. Did that spiritual side like come after some big event or something happen? Or is that something that was always there for you.
00:18:49.400 --> 00:19:06.650 Bob Russo: I guess I could answer that both ways. It came to me in an event that's for sure. My mystical side came to me in a very big event. I always age 4 5 6. I always felt the presence of something the knowing of something, but too young to really understand what's going on.
00:19:06.650 --> 00:19:15.780 Bob Russo: I can remember saying thing to my parents like Don't, go in that room. Why, there are people in there. I had the feeling I had these conversations. They remember this.
00:19:15.990 --> 00:19:18.260 Bob Russo: but about age 17
00:19:18.710 --> 00:19:31.500 Bob Russo: it's really when I had my first mystical experience which really threw me. But didn't know what it was, but it was a great experience, and I lived the rest of my life up until this day through that very first experience, and I wanted to put that
00:19:32.090 --> 00:19:44.050 Bob Russo: down as being one of the things that has helped me through that whole life that you discovered, and just talk about a little bit more. At age 17 I was with a bunch of friends, and all of a sudden I was outside of my body.
00:19:44.560 --> 00:19:57.440 Bob Russo: It was nobody. There was not even a consciousness of Bob Russo. It was just pure consciousness. There was nothing around me. It was just. I was in a space of knowing.
00:19:57.490 --> 00:20:15.690 Bob Russo: I hope you weren't on the subway at the time. Wasn't it the so I've learned how to deal with the so by because I could get myself into danger there, too. No, it wasn't. It was in a friend's house, and we were with friends and no drugs. No, everybody. I asked, what you know. What drugs are you on? A 17 no drugs.
00:20:15.730 --> 00:20:31.020 Bob Russo: All of a sudden I just felt my energy just expand, and I was no longer in my body, and I but I was totally conscious, and it was a really beautiful, lovely space, and it was filled with peace. I felt no pressure, no nothing. But I had a knowing.
00:20:31.060 --> 00:20:39.860 Bob Russo: and all of a sudden, seriously, this little golden globe came in front of me, and it looked at me, and I kind of looked at it, and it communicated to me.
00:20:40.150 --> 00:20:41.680 Bob Russo: You are love.
00:20:42.030 --> 00:20:53.290 Bob Russo: you will always be loved, and you will always give love. That was it. In that moment I felt the most precious love unconditional of agape.
00:20:53.650 --> 00:21:01.280 Bob Russo: I was in the presence of it. I knew what it was. I didn't even know who I was, but I just knew I felt it.
00:21:01.810 --> 00:21:14.670 Bob Russo: And then, all of a sudden this golden globe goes away, and I can still feel the energy of my body coming back, and I started like getting more heavy and gravity, and starting to see shapes and colors.
00:21:14.670 --> 00:21:24.340 Bob Russo: and then all of a sudden boom! Oh, oh, i'm, Bob, I remember him. I'm serious. It was so much. Oh, and i'm with a group of friends.
00:21:24.870 --> 00:21:42.490 Bob Russo: I know who I am, but I also know that I am love. I just had the most experience, the wonderful experience, and everything that I experienced on the other side, because I do believe in both sides, both human and on human. Everything I experienced there all of a sudden looked across the room, and there was this girl, 17 years old.
00:21:42.650 --> 00:21:47.170 Bob Russo: Her name was Marie, and everything I felt there was coming from her.
00:21:47.470 --> 00:21:48.800 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: She turned golden.
00:21:49.360 --> 00:22:06.190 Bob Russo: I was oh, my goodness, all that love, all that unconditional love, all that I can love is in that person. I called her up, and I said, I want to date you. Let's go out. She says you're crazy, I said. I know that short answer is.
00:22:06.290 --> 00:22:16.570 Bob Russo: 3 years later we were married, and that's the that I had as a wonderful spouse for 25 years, and she was the first person to ask me, Are you gay?
00:22:16.840 --> 00:22:27.470 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Okay, Wait before we get there. I have a couple of questions about that experience ahead. Did you share what happened with any of your friends who you were, with
00:22:27.530 --> 00:22:32.570 Bob Russo: nobody. Nobody. We didn't share this with anyone except Marie.
00:22:32.590 --> 00:22:55.570 Bob Russo: And I, said, Marie, I have seen your so I used to say to her, I seeing your soul. I know who you are. I know how beautiful you are, and I only feel and see your beauty. And she said to me. I believe you. I don't know what you're talking about. I don't know this experience. I said. I don't expect anybody to know it. It's mine. I know it, but I see all of that coming from you, and I never told anybody for years.
00:22:55.690 --> 00:22:57.500 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Okay? And then
00:22:57.800 --> 00:23:14.120 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I I mean, did you have any kind of a religious upbringing, or any kind of of of way, any kind of reference frame with which to view this whole experience. I always say that you know we. I was Italian in the Bronx, and we were, you know, born and raised Catholic.
00:23:14.120 --> 00:23:25.820 Bob Russo: But I think I went to church. One was baptized whatever communion. And then, when I went for my confirmation, I always say my parents were there on those occasions, and then at their funeral, and that was it? You know there was no religion.
00:23:25.900 --> 00:23:38.560 Bob Russo: I was not religious. I did not follow anything. No, however. as I learn what my experiences are, and this was all the first of my many mystical experiences. They are all written in all of
00:23:38.830 --> 00:23:44.690 Bob Russo: all of the religions, because I I I had no religious background at all.
00:23:44.750 --> 00:23:46.270 And did you?
00:23:46.470 --> 00:23:48.550 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Did you seek out any
00:23:48.830 --> 00:24:04.620 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: sort of spiritual guidance? Did you look for someone to help you interpret this? Or was it just something that it changed your life, and you were like, Whoa! And you just kind of dealt with it on your own great question. I dealt with it on my own. From that moment on I knew I was guided.
00:24:04.770 --> 00:24:22.160 Bob Russo: From that moment on I knew I had a copilot I you know conscious Co-creator, no doubt about it, and I relied on that I was able to connect, not in that same space same way, you know, right going out of my body, but connecting it with a feeling
00:24:22.160 --> 00:24:26.290 Bob Russo: All of a sudden I had this ability to have this
00:24:26.900 --> 00:24:38.590 Bob Russo: flow, this feeling of flow. Oh, this feels like the right direction. To go in, my guides would say, Yes, go that way, and this is not the right direction. And that led me to all everything that I have done
00:24:38.850 --> 00:24:43.100 Bob Russo: so, so so I didn't seek any help from anybody
00:24:43.160 --> 00:24:46.930 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: except my guides, Gotcha Gotcha!
00:24:47.250 --> 00:24:59.170 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And did you ever have another experience like that? Or was it like that was the one and that just changed your life from then on. No, I've had multiple experiences like that, and
00:24:59.400 --> 00:25:13.080 Bob Russo: so I mean we can get into them if you want. But the answer to that. Yes, I've had multiple. And now I've also learned now that I've come out of this. I generally came out as a spirit 3, 4 years ago. At the most. Like you said, I use this
00:25:13.080 --> 00:25:23.560 Bob Russo: to actually bring things into the world. I do get things done. I am an executive. I execute, get things done, but I get them done through the direction of the divine.
00:25:23.850 --> 00:25:34.450 Bob Russo: and I I like to call myself the divine Executive. I get the divine, and I get things done. Gtd and Gtd: I get the divine. I get things done
00:25:35.480 --> 00:25:43.120 Bob Russo: so I don't even remember your question. But I asked my answer so
00:25:44.720 --> 00:25:58.750 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: so so. But then, after that experience you, you married Marie, and and you worked at ibm for 33 years. Now people wouldn't necessarily think of Ibm as a very enlightened place to work.
00:25:58.890 --> 00:26:02.780 Bob Russo: So i'm curious how did you balance
00:26:03.040 --> 00:26:22.890 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: having this mystical experience of love, and knowing that you're divine, with just like the day to day challenges of working in a corporate environment, I mean. I lasted in in in corporations all of 9 years before. I was like no i'm out of here and became an entrepreneur. I appreciate that.
00:26:22.940 --> 00:26:24.630 Bob Russo: How did I do it? I
00:26:24.790 --> 00:26:29.950 Bob Russo: i'm telling you. I approached every single day in every single moment with love.
00:26:30.270 --> 00:26:31.680 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: That's it.
00:26:31.870 --> 00:26:49.850 Bob Russo: Everything was there. I always approached everything, but I I had no judgment on anyone we have a job to do. Let's get it done. I don't care about anything else, and I see you. I know you. I'm not afraid of any human being. I'm not afraid of any human being, and
00:26:49.850 --> 00:27:00.680 Bob Russo: and and and it allowed me the thing that always was told about me because I didn't know who I was at Ibm, if you will, I there's 2 things that that i'm known for getting things done.
00:27:01.500 --> 00:27:03.860 Bob Russo: and i'm trusted almost immediately.
00:27:06.230 --> 00:27:09.140 Bob Russo: There's something, and I know that that comes from my
00:27:09.190 --> 00:27:21.910 Bob Russo: secure presence of the divine. I walk into every board meeting, I walk into every meeting, I walk into every encounter. Knowing that I have the divine within me.
00:27:22.510 --> 00:27:24.250 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I don't need anything else.
00:27:25.700 --> 00:27:36.870 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I i'm curious because a lot of people I know who've had some kind of experience like that. They end up going off and pursuing some kind of
00:27:37.300 --> 00:27:52.210 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: spiritual life, of of of of either studying to become a monk or yoga, or a teacher, or you know, some kind of of pursuit in that way. But you didn't, and and i'm curious
00:27:52.340 --> 00:28:03.650 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: like. What was it that said to you like. Oh, just go and like, get a regular job or something as opposed to like. Yeah, let's go out and teach people about this.
00:28:03.840 --> 00:28:06.830 Bob Russo: That's a great question.
00:28:06.930 --> 00:28:09.350 Bob Russo: I I had no religious.
00:28:09.630 --> 00:28:27.310 Bob Russo: I had no religious anchoring, or, you know, wanting to, not at the early age, and then, later on, but not at the early age, and what I wanted was I wanted to. I wanted Marie. I knew I was gay. I never talked to anybody. I did not choose to be gay. I did not choose to be a mystic.
00:28:27.360 --> 00:28:30.090 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: so both of those things
00:28:30.130 --> 00:28:43.920 Bob Russo: at the same time, so I did not want to be a mystic, so I don't have to tell anybody about it. I'm certainly not going to go into religious to become a mystic because I don't want it, but it's here, and I do want to be gay. So i'm going to marry Marie. We're going to be. We would have a family and a house.
00:28:43.920 --> 00:28:51.660 Bob Russo: and our in our career, and I put everything into that. It was my decision and choice. It was my intention and my
00:28:51.710 --> 00:28:56.580 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Hmm. So so at the time you married Mary. You already knew you were gay.
00:28:57.120 --> 00:29:08.880 Bob Russo: Yes, I mean, and everybody says, how did you? Cause I, Marie, is the only person I've ever been with, and I was never with a man. But being gay the way that I experienced, it is not anything about sex.
00:29:10.480 --> 00:29:12.850 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: And so.
00:29:12.880 --> 00:29:30.430 Bob Russo: even in the absence of sex. I know that I'm attracted to men, and when I was a little chill a child I mean I wanted to marry a man. That was it. If I can marry a man that would been for I would love. That. Are you kidding me? I i'm i'm a very relationship person, as you could tell 25 years of somebody 23 years.
00:29:30.430 --> 00:29:37.310 Bob Russo: But the relation to a person I want to be with is a man. But Marie was the person that I saw love it, and then I was. Oh.
00:29:37.450 --> 00:29:46.410 Bob Russo: well, the divine says that I can be very successful with her, and have children that was most important to me was to have children.
00:29:46.450 --> 00:29:57.450 Bob Russo: Why, but it was so. It became what I chose as a most to religion or religious or mysticism.
00:29:57.810 --> 00:30:09.270 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So we we gotta take another quick break. But when we come back I want to go back to what you said before that she was the first person to say to you, Are you gay? And I want to just kind of talk about
00:30:09.330 --> 00:30:25.310 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: how that came about, and what that was, because that's a huge life turning event when when something like that comes out. And so I want to, just, you know, dive into a little bit of how you navigated that, and what that meant for your life. Okay.
00:30:25.310 --> 00:30:33.820 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So everyone, please stay tuned. You're listening to the conscious consultant now awakening humanity, and we'll be right back with Bob Rousseau in just a moment.

00:32:38.160 --> 00:32:48.830 Bob Russo: and welcome back. So, Bob, I have to ask you, because it sounds like you had a wonderful relationship with your wife. Yes, it it it was. Yes. But keep going. Keep going.
00:32:49.450 --> 00:32:54.190 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: How did she come to ask you if you were gay. Great question.
00:32:54.210 --> 00:32:58.980 Bob Russo: You'll have to ask her. We'll bring her on the Alaska.
00:32:59.080 --> 00:33:16.660 Bob Russo: I say, I say, the divine speaks in great ways right? And so at that point I had a great relationship with her. We had 2 children. We were doing what great. I had just got me great promotion at Ibm. We just moved into our forever home solid 25 years!
00:33:16.660 --> 00:33:20.540 Bob Russo: Here you are. I was age 45. It was like this, was it?
00:33:20.640 --> 00:33:25.210 Bob Russo: Everything was perfect. This is. This was my choice. I always knew I was gay, and
00:33:25.250 --> 00:33:32.160 Bob Russo: just about a year before that I was trying to become or thinking about becoming a deacon in the Catholic Church.
00:33:33.620 --> 00:33:52.920 Bob Russo: and I had a year of discernment, and throughout that year I was ready to dive into everything to becoming a a a a deacon, and there was one thing that was actually driving me a little like from the inside. I knew I was gay, and I knew it. It was never saying anything about it, and you know I was trying very hard to accept myself.
00:33:52.920 --> 00:33:56.460 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But that was the one thing I hated about myself.
00:33:56.480 --> 00:34:09.929 Bob Russo: and stuck with me is one thing I could not get over. I wanted to give up everything, but you know, before you could love anybody you have to love before you could love everybody. You have to love yourself deeply. First. It was the one thing I could not love about myself.
00:34:09.960 --> 00:34:21.960 Bob Russo: so I think that was coming up for that year. And somehow, Marie, the Great Spirit, that she is the great adviser and guide, the great conduit that she is for me somehow picked up on this
00:34:22.989 --> 00:34:42.739 Bob Russo: and out of the blue. I always say we were hanging curtains together for the on the new home, but but she said she was. She said, You know I had a friend that was gay. I made friends with somebody who was gay, and she just said, I don't know. I put 2 and 3 together, and came up with 4, and she just asked, Are you gay? And my answer was.
00:34:42.739 --> 00:34:44.170 Bob Russo: I don't know
00:34:44.510 --> 00:34:55.630 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: the first person who ever asked me. I had never, never attended to it. I didn't know. I didn't know what Gay was. I only knew what she was. Okay.
00:34:55.630 --> 00:35:08.090 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I said, she says, what does that mean? That's not an answer that I want. I said it's not an answer. I want to give you what I want. This family is what I want, but I cannot tell you that I don't have feelings of attraction for men.
00:35:08.310 --> 00:35:35.170 Bob Russo: and she goes. Oh, you're gay! And I said, but that's a but that's not what I want, and I want you and I want to stay married, and I don't want to change anything. I was afraid I what about my career? What about our marriage? What if it's our family going to say? What are our parents going to say? Everybody knows Bob and Marie. Everyone knows how successful we are in our careers.
00:35:35.170 --> 00:35:37.690 Bob Russo: What if everything goes crazy? Because this is like.
00:35:37.850 --> 00:35:47.290 Bob Russo: you know, we grew up when being gay was a criminal offense, and psychologically she said, No.
00:35:47.710 --> 00:35:53.410 Bob Russo: I'm going to do for you what society and your parents couldn't do for you when you were younger.
00:35:53.640 --> 00:35:55.320 Bob Russo: I'm going to help you. Come out.
00:35:56.000 --> 00:35:57.430 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Wow!
00:35:58.030 --> 00:36:07.920 Bob Russo: I said, thank you, Divine Spirit, I said. All that love that I felt at 17 is now coming to fruition now is where that love is coming from.
00:36:08.900 --> 00:36:20.690 Bob Russo: So so let's answer that question. So what did happen with the family, with the career, with with your friends and everything. So she's brilliant, she said. We're going to do this one step at a time.
00:36:20.740 --> 00:36:30.930 Bob Russo: We're going to get comfortable with this idea. We're going to know that we're not husband and wife. She says we all love each other dearly. There's no doubt about it, and she said, but we're not husband and wife. Let's face that
00:36:31.530 --> 00:36:42.620 Bob Russo: you're never going to lose. You're never going to lose me. I'm never going to lose you. We're going to always be in love with each other. We're going to always have these children. We're going to always have these friends. We're going to always have everything, but we're going to tell them.
00:36:42.620 --> 00:36:53.530 Bob Russo: and i'm like No, it's not fair for us to stay together. And I said that I understand. She says you're going to find a man, and i'm going to find a man. So let's get on with this story.
00:36:53.770 --> 00:36:57.540 Bob Russo: and let's tell the world that we love each other. There's nothing wrong with that.
00:36:57.840 --> 00:37:16.820 Bob Russo: and so we did. And then we told the children like 3 months later. And then, right after telling the children, they got comfortable with it. We told our parents, and then we told our friends. It took about 8 months or so. How old were you kids at the time when was 13, and what was 19, and what year was this? Just for context? 1998,
00:37:16.900 --> 00:37:18.070 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: 98, okay.
00:37:18.580 --> 00:37:22.820 Bob Russo: and i'm 45 and I'm just coming out.
00:37:23.440 --> 00:37:32.380 Bob Russo: And so so we put it as January first, 1999. I'm gonna move out of the apartment now everybody knows Well, Ibm was great about it. They were like.
00:37:32.630 --> 00:37:46.840 Bob Russo: are you kidding? You handle everything perfectly, Bob. You're going to be terrific now that you're a whole person. That's what Maria would you say to if you knew, if you like, Bob, before you're going to love the new Bob because he's a whole person. Ibm put on to that
00:37:46.870 --> 00:37:50.230 Bob Russo: onto that, and you know what it was.
00:37:50.800 --> 00:37:52.730 Bob Russo: I'm not afraid to take a risk.
00:37:53.730 --> 00:37:58.690 Bob Russo: and I manage my life. I managed. We manage the transition
00:37:58.990 --> 00:38:12.850 Bob Russo: as well as I managed every project. It was. I took care of every stakeholder I took care of every you know of, of, of everything that needed to be done, and we managed to wait through it. And Ibm said, that is what we want in the
00:38:13.090 --> 00:38:15.070 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: What was there any?
00:38:16.000 --> 00:38:27.990 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Was there anything that didn't go so smoothly? What did someone come out and say, oh, my God, I can't believe this, or I hate case, or anything like that. Did you experience any of that?
00:38:28.010 --> 00:38:30.230 Bob Russo: Very little, very little.
00:38:30.770 --> 00:38:34.790 Bob Russo: but again I embrace it with love. I took total responsibility.
00:38:35.190 --> 00:38:47.970 Bob Russo: and if you hated me I could understand it. I would understand it, I I know, and there was some relatives, especially on Marie side, because Marie was their favorite, and they wanted to protect her.
00:38:47.970 --> 00:38:56.060 Bob Russo: And I say I completely completely understand your point of view, and I don't blame you for hating me at all.
00:38:56.430 --> 00:39:02.140 Bob Russo: because that's what you I can understand that. But Marie steps in and said, but we love Bob.
00:39:03.720 --> 00:39:05.440 Bob Russo: Bob is love.
00:39:05.950 --> 00:39:08.940 Bob Russo: and Bob will always love you, and I did.
00:39:09.140 --> 00:39:11.790 Bob Russo: and they and those people turned around
00:39:11.930 --> 00:39:22.670 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: really. Oh, Marie's parents were my favorite. Well, I I stay with them till the very end. As a matter of fact, my husband, who's a hospice in Capelli to care physician.
00:39:22.910 --> 00:39:31.850 Bob Russo: I was at the bedside of my father in law. When he was passing away. My father in law, I say goodbye to him, and my father in law said to me, Bobby, I love you.
00:39:32.070 --> 00:39:37.390 Bob Russo: and he said, Where's J. I said. Jay is at the in the corner of the room, he said. Bring him over here
00:39:37.400 --> 00:39:40.370 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: he went over to him, and he said to Jay.
00:39:40.420 --> 00:39:42.340 Bob Russo: Jay, I love you
00:39:42.360 --> 00:39:53.200 Bob Russo: now. Where does that happen? And that's 20 years after we were married to. Where does that happen? That only comes from the love that I experienced on the other side
00:39:53.200 --> 00:40:07.480 Bob Russo: that I experienced through Marie that she feared through her husband. Where does it turn out that the the the the man who who did this to his daughter, the man who did this to his grandsons? How does he say to my husband, I love you.
00:40:07.630 --> 00:40:14.910 Bob Russo: he doesn't Say, I love what you've done for Bob. I love what you've done for Marie. No, I love you.
00:40:14.970 --> 00:40:16.840 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Wow! Wow!
00:40:18.150 --> 00:40:24.380 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: That's incredible. That's incredible. I mean, that's that's really the power of love. I mean, truly
00:40:24.430 --> 00:40:31.910 Bob Russo: power of love. I witnessed it, and it's my life. Wow! That's amazing. That's amazing. I can share it with you, because I know you get it.
00:40:31.940 --> 00:40:39.880 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I totally totally get. So. Does my audience, my my audience. They they're pretty conscious people, so they get it.
00:40:41.640 --> 00:40:51.810 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So you said before that you only came out sort of the spiritual side of you. You really only kind of went public with it like 3 or 4 years ago. What was it to kind of
00:40:52.110 --> 00:41:15.590 Bob Russo: help to tip you over the edge to say, okay, Bob, time to start. You got comfortable with talking about all the gay stuff. Now let's talk about the spiritual stuff. Well, again I have to be pushed, and so so so. So. So I I leave the Ibm Corporation and I what do I gonna do? And all of a sudden it comes to me. I'm going to be coach. I didn't know what a coach was, but it came to me finally. Believe me, I become a coach. Just curious what kind of executive were you at? Ibm?
00:41:15.630 --> 00:41:35.210 Bob Russo: So the title is a program executive, a a program executive for a software development program executive program manager was the exact title. Okay, and I've had many projects. I'm: a: I'm: a certified project manager, also from the Project Management Institute
00:41:35.210 --> 00:41:53.290 Bob Russo: and so all software development and ran software projects. Okay. So an executive over techies. Oh, yes, yeah, very, very technical professionals very technical. Okay. So now, so now you leave and you become a coach. So then, what kind of a coach like? Who do you decide to coach?
00:41:53.290 --> 00:42:07.710 Bob Russo: So what now? How do I become a coach? Right? So so it came to me like in a weekend that I found this program called Ipac, the Institute for Professional Excellence in coaching, and it sounded perfect. It All my parameters.
00:42:07.710 --> 00:42:32.160 Bob Russo: The divine brought me there, and I sat down, and i'm thinking i'm going to become an executive coach like it's going to teach me how to, you know. Talk to people, and advice and counsel. The very first meeting we sit down and they go. I'm going to teach you all about energy, and we're here to raise the consciousness of the world, One person at a time, and I said, Get me out of here in that right, but it stuck with me.
00:42:32.160 --> 00:42:50.100 Bob Russo: and that very, very, very, very first day we were in a group session, and they said, start coaching each other, and I sat, and at the woman next to me, and they asked her one question, and she broke down crying, and she said that was the one question that I needed to break through. She wanted to write a book, and she couldn't finish the last chapter.
00:42:50.300 --> 00:43:06.780 Bob Russo: and I I sort of that, but that I just got that question from the divine. I saw her. How do I tell her? I got this from the device? Oh! Raising the consciousness, my consciousness was just raised, and I was able to help her. This is going to be the best thing that ever happened to me.
00:43:06.920 --> 00:43:17.120 Bob Russo: I haven't told anybody so. Then I get involved with with a group of people called out of Rich Lynn, and Richard Lffin is a great coach, and I coach with him for a year.
00:43:17.630 --> 00:43:38.350 Bob Russo: and that's when he said Bob and this came out with his group. They saw they saw me, they they looked at me. They said, Bob, you are not an executive coach I so what do you mean? Of course I am, they said. We know that it's the least interesting thing about you. You are a spirit, I said, I've been hiding it. They say you cannot hide it any longer.
00:43:38.350 --> 00:43:40.800 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: About 3 years ago.
00:43:41.070 --> 00:44:00.020 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Wow! Wow! And I have not. I'm still hiding it. But i'm trying not to. That's why i'm on your program. Well, you know you come on here, forget it. That's it. You know i'm outing you. I'm out of you as a spiritual being.
00:44:00.020 --> 00:44:11.670 Bob Russo: both living in this world and the other world. And I want to answer another question, because when I, the the Shaman that I went to, and I spent the week with in in December. I met him 2 years ago, 3 years ago, when I was on this.
00:44:11.960 --> 00:44:15.350 Bob Russo: His name is Theo Alpharo.
00:44:15.380 --> 00:44:27.150 Bob Russo: He's also known as as a wolf whisperer. He has a wolf sanctuary in California, but he is also a great executive coach. Also, anyway, and he runs great businesses. Anyway.
00:44:27.150 --> 00:44:37.490 Bob Russo: he's one of the people that I talked with immediately, and I told him about this 17 year old going in he goes. Of course you travel. I know that I can tell. I've been traveling my own right.
00:44:37.740 --> 00:44:46.270 Bob Russo: because I know, I said. But why do I come back he goes. We always come back, I said. But why it's so beautiful over there he goes because we can get
00:44:46.670 --> 00:44:57.460 Bob Russo: stuff done. He didn't say stuff, but we can get stuff done here. This is where we come to earth to get things done, and he's the man who told me about thought.
00:44:58.360 --> 00:45:00.590 Bob Russo: feeling words.
00:45:00.770 --> 00:45:07.590 Bob Russo: action to get things done in 3D. That's why we're here, and we get to eat pizza, he said. Don't forget that.
00:45:07.600 --> 00:45:13.470 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Oh, I love him already absolutely. And I love that because
00:45:13.560 --> 00:45:22.470 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: there's so many spiritual people out there that I meet that all they want to do is ascend. They they literally. All they want to do is escape this world.
00:45:22.690 --> 00:45:31.150 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: But I've really I get the feeling like No, it's the exact opposite. We're here to descend the energies, and to create heaven on earth
00:45:31.260 --> 00:45:41.270 Bob Russo: absolute. Oh, those are my words to create heaven on earth, and that's what we do. We have the ability to create heaven on earth. My story is the example of it that you know what I,
00:45:41.270 --> 00:46:00.180 Bob Russo: what I have heard, and we are here to create absolutely, and and I live in both worlds at the same time. I used to separate them. I didn't have them integrated. You used the word before integration. Yes, Heyo has taught me how to integrate this into one body, into one being not separated.
00:46:00.180 --> 00:46:08.920 Bob Russo: bring it into one. I live in both worlds. I have a foot in one world and a foot in the other, and I am perfectly happy with living from that
00:46:08.940 --> 00:46:11.040 Bob Russo: from that.
00:46:11.080 --> 00:46:16.130 Bob Russo: And it's everything that I can bring into this world from the divine.
00:46:16.140 --> 00:46:17.900 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: wonderful, wonderful
00:46:17.970 --> 00:46:19.950 Bob Russo: through love, love.

00:49:06.810 --> 00:49:09.270 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: I'd love to know, like
00:49:09.310 --> 00:49:10.960 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: you now started
00:49:11.570 --> 00:49:20.500 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: studying with some spiritual teachers. You're starting to kind of come out and let people know about this more mystical side of you.
00:49:20.540 --> 00:49:26.010 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: So how does that impact what you do on a day to day basis. It's a great question
00:49:26.140 --> 00:49:32.670 Bob Russo: on a day-to-day basis. I'm. Just trying to become more and more comfortable with this.
00:49:33.350 --> 00:49:35.390 Bob Russo: Create a language around it.
00:49:35.530 --> 00:49:36.190 Hmm.
00:49:36.210 --> 00:49:41.950 Bob Russo: Find the people who resonate with it at the moment and build a community of people who
00:49:42.290 --> 00:49:48.180 Bob Russo: this is not unusual. This is the way that it is
00:49:49.260 --> 00:49:55.750 Bob Russo: that you know this. It just is like I I always say, I remember when
00:49:55.800 --> 00:50:02.740 Bob Russo: we all thought the world was flat. It had a few of us who said it was round, and we were like no, and now we know it's around Well.
00:50:02.910 --> 00:50:14.320 Bob Russo: it is also the other dimension that we can access and bring to this world. Now is the time for us to say it as if it is. and it's nothing big. It's not a big deal. It's just the way that things are.
00:50:14.370 --> 00:50:22.940 Bob Russo: I don't want to make this into a big thing. I just want to bring this into reality here. You know I have to tell you. It's quite interesting. In the last week
00:50:23.560 --> 00:50:29.860 I've had at least 2, probably more, one on ones with people I know from business networking groups.
00:50:30.500 --> 00:50:48.340 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and the conversation ended up going from business into spirituality, and I find that people and these were not people that necessarily were overly spiritual. Anything else. But people are more open, I feel, than they've been before, and they're more curious about it than they've been before.
00:50:48.340 --> 00:50:56.630 Bob Russo: Correct. Correct. I'm finding that with my previous clients. I'm opening up more and more. I've done that over the past 6 months. and as soon as I do they're like.
00:50:56.690 --> 00:51:14.360 Bob Russo: I know I know this something there you you know. Now it makes sense. And let me tell you about my experience, and no one talks about it. So there's not a common. Not it's just like when I was gay, but there was nobody to talk to about it. I am I not? Okay? I don't know. Once there's a common
00:51:14.400 --> 00:51:26.830 Bob Russo: language and community now we can explore. I want to do the same thing for spirituality. I think it's happening, and I want to be a conduit for that right? I want to be. I want to come from my spirit.
00:51:26.830 --> 00:51:50.970 Bob Russo: and I want to create a community. I want to make to community to expand, so that there's more people that know that wait. This does happen to me also, because people say, Wait, I had a dream. Do you think that was mystical, or I had a vision of, or I had a a a, a, a, a strong feeling of my my relatively transition. Yes, those are all that's not. That's something to pay attention to.
00:51:51.050 --> 00:52:03.310 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Yeah. I I remember when I I went from just being Sam Lee. What's business consultant to being the conscious consultant. and and I used to do real estate before, and I met many people, and then, when I
00:52:03.310 --> 00:52:22.490 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: started to come out as the conscious consult and then meet with them. They were like, oh, really, let me tell you about this strange thing, or like oh, you know, one time I saw you a phone, this guy, or you know what I have this strange experience so like. What do you think of that? And it's so funny how like everybody's had something unexplainable happen in their life.
00:52:22.830 --> 00:52:32.960 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: and and they've been afraid to talk about it. But once you open the door for it, They're like red right there with you. I say that's because this is our natural way of being
00:52:33.220 --> 00:52:45.720 Bob Russo: right. And so and it just is something we haven't talked about yet, but everyone has it. Everyone has connection to the divine. I believe everyone comes from the we have connections to many other things, but we also have connection to the divine.
00:52:45.730 --> 00:52:52.560 Bob Russo: and and so, therefore it's not unusual that people feel this connection, but discard it.
00:52:52.990 --> 00:53:05.050 Bob Russo: I felt the connection to men, but discarded it same thing. And now, if you talk about, what am I going to be doing in the future? I was thinking about that during the commercial break I am in one of the periods of total surrender.
00:53:05.220 --> 00:53:06.030 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: Hmm.
00:53:06.260 --> 00:53:20.480 Bob Russo: And so I know that this is a time for me not to think or plan, but to be. and to give up whatever you know. Give up any of my ego at figuring what I have to do it. You know I have to have an audience of 12 million people, and I have to know this, and I have to have this measure. No.
00:53:21.010 --> 00:53:27.690 Bob Russo: just be you every day, and you give me the opportunity to do this today. Just be myself.
00:53:27.700 --> 00:53:42.020 Bob Russo: and we'll see where it goes. I don't know I am until I become something, and I accept absolutely. Absolutely. I love that. I love that, and and I have to connect you with the woman who I had on my show like 2 weeks ago. Beth bell
00:53:42.020 --> 00:54:11.850 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: because she was a formula, former pharmaceutical, executive, and she just came out with her book, angels, Herpes, and psychedelics.
00:54:12.160 --> 00:54:17.230 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: The reason why I want to connect you to her is because her mission, she feels, is also like
00:54:18.060 --> 00:54:30.020 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: taking executives and quote unquote normal people, and and being the gateway for them to like, meet all kinds of mystical people and people doing different things.
00:54:30.020 --> 00:54:41.210 Bob Russo: because she has that corporate background as well, and and I want to connect other executives to their divine spirit, so they can also become the divine Executive.
00:54:42.090 --> 00:54:44.270 Bob Russo: I'm. Not here to tell them how
00:54:44.370 --> 00:55:02.330 Bob Russo: to do anything but other. Connect from connect to your spirit, and then bring that into your world as an executive, because I get the divine, and I get things done, and I want to help you do the same thing connect to your divine. Get things done. I am going to be known, I guess, after this as the Divine Executive.
00:55:02.370 --> 00:55:09.280 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: They want to write that book for me. They want to. I was just going to say I could see the name of your group now, the divine Executives.
00:55:10.970 --> 00:55:26.120 Sam Liebowitz | The Conscious Consultant: It's it's it's already happened. Yeah. So I was gonna ask you. Is there a book in the works, or do you have an idea there is there? There is a ghost writer who is heard by story. Right? He's like I. We've got to figure this out. What is this book?
00:55:26.120 --> 00:55:45.370 Bob Russo: And I said it Really, my mind, there's 2 books. One is the divine Executive. I want to talk to other executives and talk to people about getting things done through the Divine Spirit, and i'm very well versed in that. But then there's the other one which is my life story which we just went through. How do you live this life, and how do you take the courage from the divine to live in an extraordinary life?
00:55:45.370 --> 00:55:50.080 Bob Russo: And he says, Well, maybe that's, you know. Maybe it's combined.
00:55:50.210 --> 00:56:02.400 Bob Russo: Maybe it's one book I don't know, but there's something in there about the divine, the Divine Executive, and and somebody else has encouraged me to buy the domain called Bob
00:56:02.630 --> 00:56:10.060 Bob Russo: Dot Guru. He calls me Bob Guru. He wants my email address to be. I am love.
00:56:10.320 --> 00:56:16.350 Bob Russo: and I think that's great. That's wonderful. That's wonderful.
