Let me perceive forgiveness as it is. Let us review the meaning of "forgive," for it is apt to be distorted and to be perceived as something that entails an unfair sacrifice of righteous wrath, a gift unjustified and undeserved, and a complete denial of the truth. In such a view, forgiveness must be seen as mere eccentric folly, and this course appear to rest salvation on a whim. This twisted view of what forgiveness means is easily corrected, when you can accept the fact that pardon is not asked for what is true. It must be limited to what is false. It is irrelevant to everything except illusions. Truth is God's creation, and to pardon that is meaningless. All truth belongs to Him, reflects His laws and radiates His Love. Does this need pardon? How can you forgive the sinless and eternally benign? The major difficulty that you find in genuine forgiveness on your part is that you still believe you must forgive the truth, and not illusions. You conceive of pardon as a vain attempt to look past what is there; to overlook the truth, in an unfounded effort to deceive yourself by making an illusion true. This twisted viewpoint but reflects the hold that the idea of sin retains as yet upon your mind, as you regard yourself. Because you think your sins are real, you look on pardon as deception. For it is impossible to think of sin as true and not believe forgiveness is a lie. Thus is forgiveness really but a sin, like all the rest. It says the truth is false, and smiles on the corrupt as if they were as blameless as the grass; as white as snow. It is delusional in what it thinks it can accomplish. It would see as right the plainly wrong; the loathsome as the good. Pardon is no escape in such a view. It merely is a further sign that sin is unforgivable, at best to be concealed, denied or called another name, for pardon is a treachery to truth. Guilt cannot be forgiven. If you sin, your guilt is everlasting. Those who are forgiven from the view their sins are real are pitifully mocked and twice condemned; first, by themselves for what they think they did, and once again by those who pardon them. It is sin's unreality that makes forgiveness natural and wholly sane, a deep relief to those who offer it; a quiet blessing where it is received. It does not countenance illusions, but collects them lightly, with a little laugh, and gently lays them at the feet of truth. And there they disappear entirely. Forgiveness is the only thing that stands for truth in the illusions of the world. It sees their nothingness, and looks straight through the thousand forms in which they may appear. It looks on lies, but it is not deceived. It does not heed the self-accusing shrieks of sinners mad with guilt. It looks on them with quiet eyes, and merely says to them, "My brother, what you think is not the truth." The strength of pardon is its honesty, which is so uncorrupted that it sees illusions as illusions, not as truth. It is because of this that it becomes the undeceiver in the face of lies; the great restorer of the simple truth. By its ability to overlook what is not there, it opens up the way to truth, which has been blocked by dreams of guilt. Now are you free to follow in the way your true forgiveness opens up to you. For if one brother has received this gift of you, the door is open to yourself. There is a very simple way to find the door to true forgiveness, and perceive it open wide in welcome. When you feel that you are tempted to accuse someone of sin in any form, do not allow your mind to dwell on what you think he did, for that is self-deception. Ask instead, "Would I accuse myself of doing this?" Thus will you see alternatives for choice in terms that render choosing meaningful, and keep your mind as free of guilt and pain as God Himself intended it to be, and as it is in truth. It is but lies that would condemn. In truth is innocence the only thing there is. Forgiveness stands between illusions and the truth; between the world you see and that which lies beyond; between the hell of guilt and Heaven's gate. Across this bridge, as powerful as Love which laid its blessing on it, are all dreams of evil and of hatred and attack brought silently to truth. They are not kept to swell and bluster, and to terrify the foolish dreamer who believes in them. He has been gently wakened from his dream by understanding what he thought he saw was never there. And now he cannot feel that all escape has been denied to him. He does not have to fight to save himself. He does not have to kill the dragons which he thought pursued him. Nor need he erect the heavy walls of stone and iron doors he thought would make him safe. He can remove the ponderous and useless armor made to chain his mind to fear and misery. His step is light, and as he lifts his foot to stride ahead a star is left behind, to point the way to those who follow him. Forgiveness must be practiced, for the world cannot perceive its meaning, nor provide a guide to teach you its beneficence. There is no thought in all the world that leads to any understanding of the laws it follows, nor the Thought that it reflects. It is as alien to the world as is your own reality. And yet it joins your mind with the reality in you. Today we practice true forgiveness, that the time of joining be no more delayed. For we would meet with our reality in freedom and in peace. Our practicing becomes the footsteps lighting up the way for all our brothers, who will follow us to the reality we share with them. That this may be accomplished, let us give a quarter of an hour twice today, and spend it with the Guide Who understands the meaning of forgiveness, and was sent to us to teach it. Let us ask of Him: Let me perceive forgiveness as it is. Then choose one brother as He will direct, and catalogue his "sins," as one by one they cross your mind. Be certain not to dwell on any one of them, but realize that you are using his "offenses" but to save the world from all ideas of sin. Briefly consider all the evil things you thought of him, and each time ask yourself, "Would I condemn myself for doing this?" Let him be freed from all the thoughts you had of sin in him. And now you are prepared for freedom. If you have been practicing thus far in willingness and honesty, you will begin to sense a lifting up, a lightening of weight across your chest, a deep and certain feeling of relief. The time remaining should be given to experiencing the escape from all the heavy chains you sought to lay upon your brother, but were laid upon yourself. Forgiveness should be practiced through the day, for there will still be many times when you forget its meaning and attack yourself. When this occurs, allow your mind to see through this illusion as you tell yourself: Let me perceive forgiveness as it is. Would I accuse myself of doing this? I will not lay this chain upon myself. In everything you do remember this: No one is crucified alone, and yet no one can enter Heaven by himself.- Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles, Lesson 134

Whatever is not appreciated is depreciated and eventually lost. This is a fundamental principle in both life and business. If you don't appreciate your team members, you'll lose them. Studies prove that money (or a paycheck) alone won't motivate long term; and it certainly won't inspire. If you don't appreciate your health, you'll lose it. Then Life will give you NO OPTION but to make it job #1. If you don't appreciate your relationship, you'll lose it. Every human being has a deep need to feel appreciated; and they'll do and go where they must and find that appreciation. Your finances, investments and saving are either appreciating or depreciating.

Jesston Williams is the host of The Hidden Gateway Podcast and author of his new memoir "In the Eye of the Father: A Memoir of Hope and Redemption." In this episode, we cover some of the biographical points covered in Jesston's memoir and discuss his journey of overcoming challenges through religion and spirituality. While much of Jesston's journey involved faith and prayer based on the foundation of his Christian religious upbringing, Jesston began having extraordinary experiences starting around 2020 that led him on a different path and away from his Christian faith. This is a great conversation that is full of deep, vulnerable insights.

No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth. Failure is all about you while you seek for goals that cannot be achieved. You look for permanence in the impermanent, for love where there is none, for safety in the midst of danger; immortality within the darkness of the dream of death. Who could succeed where contradiction is the setting of his searching, and the place to which he comes to find stability? Goals that are meaningless are not attained. There is no way to reach them, for the means by which you strive for them are meaningless as they are. Who can use such senseless means, and hope through them to gain in anything? Where can they lead? And what could they achieve that offers any hope of being real? Pursuit of the imagined leads to death because it is the search for nothingness, and while you seek for life you ask for death. You look for safety and security, while in your heart you pray for danger and protection for the little dream you made. Yet searching is inevitable here. For this you came, and you will surely do the thing you came for. But the world can not dictate the goal for which you search, unless you give it power to do so. Otherwise, you still are free to choose a goal that lies beyond the world and every worldly thought, and one that comes to you from an idea relinquished yet remembered, old yet new; an echo of a heritage forgot, yet holding everything you really want. Be glad that search you must. Be glad as well to learn you search for Heaven, and must find the goal you really want. No one can fail to want this goal and reach it in the end. God's Son can not seek vainly, though he try to force delay, deceive himself and think that it is hell he seeks. When he is wrong, he finds correction. When he wanders off, he is led back to his appointed task. No one remains in hell, for no one can abandon his Creator, nor affect His perfect, timeless and unchanging Love. You will find Heaven. Everything you seek but this will fall away. Yet not because it has been taken from you. It will go because you do not want it. You will reach the goal you really want as certainly as God created you in sinlessness. Why wait for Heaven? It is here today. Time is the great illusion it is past or in the future. Yet this cannot be, if it is where God wills His Son to be. How could the Will of God be in the past, or yet to happen? What He wills is now, without a past and wholly futureless. It is as far removed from time as is a tiny candle from a distant star, or what you chose from what you really want. Heaven remains your one alternative to this strange world you made and all its ways; its shifting patterns and uncertain goals, its painful pleasures and its tragic joys. God made no contradictions. What denies its own existence and attacks itself is not of Him. He did not make two minds, with Heaven as the glad effect of one, and earth the other's sorry outcome which is Heaven's opposite in every way. God does not suffer conflict. Nor is His creation split in two. How could it be His Son could be in hell, when God Himself established him in Heaven? Could he lose what the Eternal Will has given him to be his home forever? Let us not try longer to impose an alien will upon God's single purpose. He is here because He wills to be, and what He wills is present now, beyond the reach of time. Today we will not choose a paradox in place of truth. How could the Son of God make time to take away the Will of God? He thus denies himself, and contradicts what has no opposite. He thinks he made a hell opposing Heaven, and believes that he abides in what does not exist, while Heaven is the place he cannot find. Leave foolish thoughts like these behind today, and turn your mind to true ideas instead. No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth, and it is truth we seek to reach today. We will devote ten minutes to this goal three times today, and we will ask to see the rising of the real world to replace the foolish images that we hold dear, with true ideas arising in the place of thoughts that have no meaning, no effect, and neither source nor substance in the truth. This we acknowledge as we start upon our practice periods. Begin with this: I ask to see a different world, and think a different kind of thought from those I made. The world I seek I did not make alone, the thoughts I want to think are not my own. For several minutes watch your mind and see, although your eyes are closed, the senseless world you think is real. Review the thoughts as well which are compatible with such a world, and which you think are true. Then let them go, and sink below them to the holy place where they can enter not. There is a door beneath them in your mind, which you could not completely lock to hide what lies beyond. Seek for that door and find it. But before you try to open it, remind yourself no one can fail who seeks to reach the truth. And it is this request you make today. Nothing but this has any meaning now; no other goal is valued now nor sought, nothing before this door you really want, and only what lies past it do you seek. Put out your hand, and see how easily the door swings open with your one intent to go beyond it. Angels light the way, so that all darkness vanishes, and you are standing in a light so bright and clear that you can understand all things you see. A tiny moment of surprise, perhaps, will make you pause before you realize the world you see before you in the light reflects the truth you knew, and did not quite forget in wandering away in dreams. You cannot fail today. There walks with you the Spirit Heaven sent you, that you might approach this door some day, and through His aid slip effortlessly past it, to the light. Today that day has come. Today God keeps His ancient promise to His holy Son, as does His Son remember his to Him. This is a day of gladness, for we come to the appointed time and place where you will find the goal of all your searching here, and all the seeking of the world, which end together as you pass beyond the door. Remember often that today should be a time of special gladness, and refrain from dismal thoughts and meaningless laments. Salvation's time has come. Today is set by Heaven itself to be a time of grace for you and for the world. If you forget this happy fact, remind yourself with this: Today I seek and find all that I want. My single purpose offers it to me. No one can fail who seeks to reach the truth.- Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles, Lesson 131

And I said, okay, my one bedrooms, I'm going to be able to raise the rent 150 bucks a door. My two bedrooms, 250 bucks a door. That's pretty conservative. [00:00:18] Considering my property manager is just whipping units. Now at double. [00:00:23] Welcome to the How to Scale Commercial Real Estate Show. Whether you are an active or passive investor, we'll teach you how to scale your real estate investing business into something big. [00:00:35] Sam Wilson: Mike Moraski is an entrepreneur author, real estate trainer, a public speaker and personal coach with strong personal resilience and a deep desire to help others live extraordinary lives. Mike welcome to the show. [00:00:47] Mike Morawski: Hey Sam, thanks for having me back [00:00:49] Sam Wilson: Hey man, it's a pleasure. It's absolutely a pleasure. You came on this show. This was episode 197, which I can't believe it's been that long, but that was published June 14th, 2021. So by the time this airs, it'll probably be [00:01:03] Mike Morawski: almost a year. [00:01:05] This one going to be? [00:01:06] Sam Wilson: I have no idea. It'll be somewhere 520-550. We just put them all in the, I don't know, they go in the queue, man. I'm not the one that handles that on my team, but yeah, it'll be somewhere in that neighborhood, but it's awesome to catch back up. I ask every guest who comes in the show. [00:01:22] So just in case our listeners didn't get a chance to listen to that episode. First in 90 seconds or less, tell me where you started, where you are now and how [00:01:29] Mike Morawski: you got there. Absolutely. I started in real estate sales, selling hundreds of houses. I went into the apartment business, built a hundred million dollar company through a syndication and a property management company. [00:01:44] I lost everything as a result of the 2008 debacle wound up on a 10 year federal prison sentence, serving eight of those 10 years behind a wall. And today I'm home in the coaching and training business. Teaching people, how not to make those same mistakes, how to live a balanced quality lifestyle and increase their business profitability and bottom line. [00:02:07] Sam Wilson: And for those of you, again, if you haven't gone back or you haven't heard Mike story, it's a good one. So go back and listen to his story. I don't think he holds anything back, which we certainly appreciate. I know it's a humbling story for you to tell, but it's also a story of redemption and yeah, I think it's a great story. [00:02:24] So appreciate you always being so vulnerable and sharing that. So [00:02:26] Mike Morawski: what I want to say though about that, Sam is I do share that story openly and vulnerably. I believe that there's hope and inspiration in my journey. And I also believe that there's lessons to be learned in this success, the loss and the redemption. [00:02:41] Right. So listen, none of us should allow our future to be dictated by our past. Don't look in the rear view mirror, look out the windshield and [00:02:49] Sam Wilson: move forward. Yeah. And nobody can drive a car, looking out the rear view mirror. That's a bad way to get down the road. When you say lessons in success that you share with your coaching clients, what does that term even mean? [00:03:01] Mike Morawski: Lessons in success. You know, I think that there's success in the failure. Right? Cause it's not that I failed. It's not that I lost everything. I just learned a different way of not doing something. Right. If you take a look at Thomas Edison, when he created the light bulb, you know, the comment is, Hey, I just learned 10,001 ways that it wasn't going to work. [00:03:21] Right. So I kind of look at it the same way. I built a heck of a big business. I built it really fast over leveraged under capitalized and very unstable. And if you can, as an entrepreneur, get your arms around those three things and then pay attention to the details and listen to people around you. I think as an entrepreneur, you can knock it out [00:03:45] Sam Wilson: of the park for yourself. [00:03:46] What do you see if any correlation between 2008 and where we are now in the market? [00:03:55] Mike Morawski: You know, I see a lot of similarities. I see some edginess in the banking industry where they're starting to float some loan programs out there. You know, I had something come across my desk the other day that said, Hey, 85 to 90% LTV on your $5 million multifamily deal. [00:04:16] And I thought to myself, man, you guys should be put out of. I honestly thought that. That was the first thought that went through my mind. And because that was one of the things that got me in trouble, I had $60 million worth of real estate that I was over leveraged on. I don't think anybody should be buying a piece of real estate in today's environment unless they're 65 to 70% loan to value. [00:04:40] If you are chasing rents right now and raising rent rates at unprecedented underwrite. Stop it go back and take a look at, you know, be conservative. This market's going to change. There's going to be a shift. You know, I see a lot of people growing really fast, buying big assets for lots of money and buying multiple assets for lots of money. [00:05:04] One of the things that caught me was I grew too fast. This is a marathon. It's not a. And I think that if you're not looking at those things, you know, there's going to be a change in the housing market. We're going to see foreclosures appear. Like we haven't seen them in the last seven or eight years, but they're coming back. [00:05:24] I have some friends that are. In that space in the residential foreclosure space attorneys that deal with the banks. And there is a backlog right now. So when they open these flood gates, there's going to be some challenges. Will it affect the commercial real estate space? Like it did last. You know, Sam, I don't know, but last time I didn't think it was going to affect the commercial real estate space either. [00:05:48] Sam Wilson: Yeah, I'm with you. There's a lot of obviously uncertainty. A question I always like to ask guests on the show is what's something you're curious about and more often than not. And I probably don't ask it as much anymore because the answer is always like, I'm just curious and is, you know, what's going to happen with all of this. [00:06:04] I mean, we've printed just an unbelievable amount of money. So obviously asset prices are rising. Inflation is going nuts. I mean, where does this end? And you can listen to two schools of thought. There's one school of thought that says, Hey, we have a massive crash and we have massive deflation. And there's the other school of thought that says no, just to be runaway inflation. [00:06:20] Like neither one of them is good. Nobody's saying, oh, there's a bright rosy future ahead. So, you know, that's not the story I'm hearing from either camp, but I'm really curious for you. What are you guys doing? Cause you mentioned here, you know, growing really fast, was it maybe a mistake you guys had made you were over levered, the high LTVs bad loans, you know, loans that were written with terms that no one could comply with, unless everything just went along perfectly. [00:06:44] What are you guys doing right now to make sure that your protected [00:06:48] Mike Morawski: underwriting conservatively. Let me give you an example. We just bought a deal in Tampa, Florida, 40 units. We actually closed down it, you know, a couple of months ago. One of the things in our underwriting process was I did not want to come out with these extravagant numbers. [00:07:03] Like we were going to hit 20% on investor's IRR with a 12 or 15% cash on cash return. Right. I think those numbers are. The sponsors that are putting that stuff out today, need to pull back on the reins. I just did a passive webinar where we brought some investors in, you know, we had about 80 people online and I said, look, I said, one thing that I'm very conscious of today is how do we look at these numbers? [00:07:30] Spreads. I think as an investor, you should be looking at six to 8% cash on cash return. And you should be looking at a 13% higher if you're seeing stuff that's higher than that, I'd really be concerned because I think the market's going to change so much that it's going to cause instability. Sam, you said it hit the feds, just raised interest rates. [00:07:49] Again yesterday you got gas. That's at seven bucks a gallon on the west coast. It's at five bucks a gallon in the middle. You got bread and milk and eggs that are more money and you can't get lumber fast enough. Right? Where's the market going to go, but here's what I'll tell you. On the other side, how do you hedge against that? [00:08:06] Well, if you're an investor and you're looking for an investment, be in rent growth products. Because I conservatively underwrote this deal in Florida. And I said, okay, my one bedrooms, I'm going to be able to raise the rent 150 bucks a door. My two bedrooms, 250 bucks a door. That's pretty conservative considering my property manager. [00:08:26] Is just whipping units now at double there. So anybody who got involved in that deal is going to see a much better return on investment that changed the numbers to like a 20% higher or it's just silly money. [00:08:41] Sam Wilson: It's silly money. And I guess the idea is that you underwrite it. In the potential worst case scenario, I guess that's what I'm hearing. [00:08:51] Cause know, Hey, if you promise investors a 6% cash on cash and that's what you delivered. Okay. You know, no one can get upset, but if you promised them 15 and you gave him six, then everybody's upset. I mean, is that the idea behind that? Or is there. [00:09:05] Mike Morawski: Yeah. I'd like to under promise and over deliver for sure. [00:09:08] And does that mean that I'll get as many investors as fast as I possibly could if I was promising a 20% sure because people are still of the old school, but I have friends that have been in the business 25, 30 years. Doing the same thing and they've pulled back so far right now, you know, I got one buddy, they're raising capital and they're paying their investors of 5% preferred return. [00:09:34] And that's it. No equity in the deal. So as an investor, they're going out to the hedge funds. They're going out to the pension funds and they're bringing capital in and they're paying a 5%, no equity in the deal. And they're doing 50% debt, 50% equity. So when you do the math like that, you say, wow, we could probably deliver a better product, a better return. [00:09:56] And of course, those are, you know, A-class products, fresh bill cost a little bit more money, but you can buy this product. Now, when you have those types of terms in your equity investors, there's just safety in that. [00:10:09] Sam Wilson: There really is. That would be for a capital raiser. That would be amazing if I could find capital that just wanted a 5% preferred return, no equity. [00:10:18] That sounds like, you know, monster institutional money that is just desperately seeking yield more than our everyday investors, maybe that you and I [00:10:26] Mike Morawski: work with. Yeah, for sure. And then what you can do is you don't have to. Play around with your exit cap rate, right? I mean, you can say, okay, so if this deal trades out at six in seven years from now, I'm okay. [00:10:39] Right, right. Because if the market shifts enough because to try and keep cap rates compressed at two and 3% right now, You might find yourself in a tough spot, come five, six years from [00:10:49] Sam Wilson: now. Well, that's exactly right. I mean, there's the argument, the cap rates, regardless of where interest rates go, there's this argument that cap rates will still stay low. [00:10:58] Even if the cost of capital is greater than what you're going in. Cap rate is because they have the potential to value add they have the potential to raise rents. They can do all this stuff that will then inflate that cap rate, obviously to a number that makes sense upon stabilizing. If I even said that correctly, and if I didn't, you can get on here and send me a snide remarks on YouTube. [00:11:18] You know, even with that, there comes that other market dynamic that I think people are missing, which is can the people afford the higher rent. Can they afford the per square foot price in a building? That's more, I mean, at some point, if the economy takes a complete bath, people just, aren't going to have the liquidity to go out and just keep paying a 20% annualized ramp up. [00:11:40] Does that sound fair? [00:11:41] Mike Morawski: And that's what happened to the US. Last time jobs got lost businesses got closed. People moved home, people moved out, they doubled. My occupancy dropped. My NOI ran wild off the chains and I couldn't pay my bills. And we went back with some deals, mitigated with the banks, got lower interest rates, got principal knocked off, you know, and it still wasn't enough and couldn't do it on every deal. [00:12:06] But we tried on a few animals. Testing the water. It didn't even work. Then this goes back to, you know, if you've got a cap rate on a deal right now, that's a terminal cap and you've projecting, you're going to get out of this deal in six years at a three or a four. And that thing runs wild and you're at a six and five years from. [00:12:25] You're screwed. Right. You know, so except for the guys that stood by and said, Hey, you know, I'm going to buy some of this stuff when it goes crazy again. Right. [00:12:34] Sam Wilson: Right. Which is another option. It's tough. I'll tell you. It's really tough to sit with. I call it dry powder, have dry powder on the sidelines, especially when we're watching the value of that dry powder. [00:12:46] Just dissipated at incredible. Great, you know, year over year, what publishing 7% now, which I think is the fraudulent number. Anyway, it's probably north of 10 to 15. And if they're being really honest on an inflation rate, so that's tough to do, you know, to hold capital, you guys taking that approach on anything. [00:13:02] Mike Morawski: Yeah. You know, I'm not a real advocate on sitting [00:13:05] on capital on the sidelines. I think you should. It doesn't work for you on the sidelines. I think that there's ways to deploy it, to make it work for you. But, you know, I'm of the opinion that you have to, you know, keep your capital at work at a quarter of a percent or a half a percent even taking advantage of the overnight swap. [00:13:25] You can't make any money down. Yeah, [00:13:27] Sam Wilson: what have I heard? What did somebody tell me once it scared money? Don't make no money this right. I think that's what you're telling me here. Mike, tell me about something that you are currently excited about. We've talked kind of doom and gloom, worst case scenario. [00:13:42] What's something you go, man. I'm pumped about [00:13:43] Mike Morawski: this summer in the city, Sam. I live in Chicago, summers coming, nothing like a bike ride on the lakefront. Nice hot summer day in the sun, watching the boat. [00:13:55] Sam Wilson: That sounds great. Chicago is one of my favorite cities, especially there, along the lake shore. That's a pretty place to be. [00:14:00] Mike Morawski: She come out, hang out one weekend and we'll find some fun things to do [00:14:04] Sam Wilson: for sure. Absolutely. We can get into a lot of trouble there in Chicago. Tell me on a business front, what's something that you're looking forward to that you said, man, this is an initiative we're undertaking. Or this is maybe somewhere we see, you know, good opportunity. [00:14:18] Mike Morawski: Yeah. You know, I told you when we jumped on this morning that I'm getting my arms around this again, and you know, I'm raising capital to do deals and, you know, I had another investor make a commitment this morning and that excites me right now because I've been out of the game for a while. But now back in the game, Helping other people grow their multifamily business and then partnering with them as well. [00:14:42] It's just been a great venture for me to get back into. Like my one buddy says to me all the time he goes, man, I know you're going to knock it out of the park. And you know, that's not the objective or the goal, the objective. And the goal is really to help other people grow. And for them to knock it out of the park, Zig Ziglar always said that if you help enough other people get what they want, you'll ultimately get what you. [00:15:06] But for me, the exciting thing is to raise capital today. And you know, my goal this year is to raise a couple million dollars in capital and buy another 500 units for our group to push the envelope forward a little [00:15:17] Sam Wilson: bit this year. I love it. Mike, thank you for taking the time to come on today. I don't know if we got a chance last time to chat about your book. [00:15:25] I think that's behind you. Exit plan is your book. Isn't it. [00:15:28] Mike Morawski: I wrote exit plan because everybody, all the trainers and coaches, some great trainers and coaches in the marketplace that I've learned from, even everybody teaches you how to buy a deal, find a deal, get in a deal, operate it. Nobody teaches you how to get out. [00:15:43] Nobody teaches you where to maximize your. Your guests could go download a free copy of that book. They can go to my website at mycoreintentions.com/free and grab a copy of Exit Plan. There's a couple other things out there that they could explore Multifamily Fundamentals. And if you're a passive investor, 27 Must Ask Questions of a sponsor, jump in. [00:16:08] It's a great game. It's really growing and I don't see any reason to not stay really connected and involved over the next several years. [00:16:18] Sam Wilson: I love it. Mike, if our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do that? [00:16:22] Mike Morawski: Track me down on social media. For sure. I hang out on LinkedIn, Instagram, any place you get your fix. [00:16:29] That's where I'm at. And always trying to throw some great content up there. Even somebody even said to me the other day, man, I can't believe you're even on ticket. But direct message me. I love to network, so message me there, or send me an firstname.lastname@example.org.

Born: 306 AD, Nisibis, Turkey Died: June 9, 373 AD, Edessa, Turkey Full name: Ephrem of Nisibis From Vatican.va, an excerpt from the teachings of Pope Benedict XVI General Audience 2007: The figure of Ephrem is still absolutely timely for the life of the various Christian Churches. We discover him in the first place as a theologian who reflects poetically, on the basis of Holy Scripture, on the mystery of man's redemption brought about by Christ, the Word of God incarnate. His is a theological reflection expressed in images and symbols taken from nature, daily life and the Bible. Ephrem gives his poetry and liturgical hymns a didactic and catechetical character: they are theological hymns yet at the same time suitable for recitation or liturgical song. On the occasion of liturgical feasts, Ephrem made use of these hymns to spread Church doctrine. Time has proven them to be an extremely effective catechetical instrument for the Christian community. Ephrem's reflection on the theme of God the Creator is important: nothing in creation is isolated and the world, next to Sacred Scripture, is a Bible of God. By using his freedom wrongly, man upsets the cosmic order. The role of women was important to Ephrem. The way he spoke of them was always inspired with sensitivity and respect: the dwelling place of Jesus in Mary's womb greatly increased women's dignity. Ephrem held that just as there is no Redemption without Jesus, there is no Incarnation without Mary. The divine and human dimensions of the mystery of our redemption can already be found in Ephrem's texts; poetically and with fundamentally scriptural images, he anticipated the theological background and in some way the very language of the great Christological definitions of the fifth-century Councils. Ephrem, honoured by Christian tradition with the title "Harp of the Holy Spirit", remained a deacon of the Church throughout his life. It was a crucial and emblematic decision: he was a deacon, a servant, in his liturgical ministry, and more radically, in his love for Christ, whose praises he sang in an unparalleled way, and also in his love for his brethren, whom he introduced with rare skill to the knowledge of divine Revelation.
