Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India and aim to control and still the mind, recognizing a detached witness-consciousness untouched by the mind and mundane suffering.
I’m involved in some action scenes, so they’ll train me for that. I’ll be working with my acting coach to prepare for my character. It was always part of the plan to move into acting. It’s hard to say what I want my legacy to be when I’m long gone. It’s really a sad story, and I liked that. The songs on this album talk about relationships in every aspect. Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want.
Romeo Must Die came at the right time. It was the right vehicle for me. The Matrix is top secret. There isn’t much that can be said right now. There are certain things I want to keep to me. I don’t discuss my private life. There are times I can’t even figure myself out. There are times in my life when I just want to be by myself. You have to love what you do to want to do it everyday.
All I can do is leave it in God’s hands and hope that my fans feel where I’m coming from. If you want to go to the mall, you have to take security. But it’s always cool. The kids are amazing. In film, you are a totally different person than in the video. I’m the interpreter. I’m the one who takes your words and brings them to life. I was trained to sing and dance and laugh, and that’s what I want to do. I’m a total performer. I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person.
I think it’s important to take a break, you know, from the public eye for a while, and give people a chance to miss you. I want longevity. I don’t want to get out there and run myself ragged and spread myself thin. I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original. I see myself as sexy. If you are comfortable with it, it can be very classy and appealing. I know that people think I’m sexy and I am looked at as that. It is cool with me. It’s wonderful to have sexy appeal. If you embrace it, it can be a very beautiful thing. I have the time needed to support the album and tour. I don’t want to abandon one work for the other, and I don’t think I need to sacrifice anything to put my all into either one of them. I don’t think about my previous success. I’m happy that the work I’ve done has been very successful.
I don’t feel I made any sacrifices at all. I’m doing my best to juggle. I began to work the stage and get the audience into it. I also learned how to have fun out there. It is something I will never forget. Because I came out as a singer, I took the time to get an acting coach. If I don’t think about it, it won’t drive me crazy. Our time is so specialised that we have people who know more and more or less and less.
Nothing is as dangerous in architecture as dealing with separated problems. If we split life into separated problems we split the possibilities to make good building art. We have almost a city has probably two or three hundred committees. Every committee is dealing with just one problem and has nothing to do with the other problems. We should concentrate our work not only to a separated housing problem but housing involved in our daily work and all the other functions of the city. Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together. My wife bought an extra life insurance policy on me. I don’t think you need to go looking for the enemy. He’s going to look for you.
I get scared to death when I see people who say they’ve found Jesus Christ, and they’re out there, and I wonder, who’s teaching them? Who’s mentoring them? I had never really pictured myself working in children’s ministries. I always figured I would be more comfortable with maybe teens or adult ministries. I realized there was very little in Hollywood I would ever feel comfortable doing. If I kept one foot there and one foot in my Christianity, I would never grow. I remember thinking, That’s what I need – and that hope was in Jesus Christ. I spent six years in Bible study because I needed to get grounded. People really need to spend time in the Bible getting to know the God they claim to love. I suppose what’s unique about our presentation is the amount of Scripture that kids get.
I tell kids that people will let them down and people will hurt them. But Jesus Christ will never let them down and never hurt them. I want kids to understand that strength doesn’t come from what goes on around you. It comes from inside you, and that comes from Jesus Christ. I’m cleaning toilets for $30 a day, because I needed that $30, and people are pointing at me, saying, Look at the big movie star. Look where he is now. I just said, I’m where God put me. God gives me the children’s ministry heart and patience. This is what He wants. It’s awesome. I don’t know where He’s gonna take it-but God is building this thing. It’s easy to be led astray when you’re so broken. People take advantage of you. My pastor said, Just because you were a celebrity doesn’t mean you’re supposed to be a celebrity now. God continues to work miracles in my life.
There are things God does for me daily, and it throws me into brain lock, because I know in my heart I don’t deserve that kind of grace. I don’t deserve that break. They did interviews with my wife and daughter-they were genuinely in fear of me having a heart attack, working 20 hours a day, eating fast food. This is an exact replica of my chest. This is not what I would have chosen. But I have a heart to be obedient. This show has been a major revitalization of my family life and personal life. It gave my family an avenue to speak to me honestly. We produce programs that honor God and impact our world.
We’re seeing how the videos translate to the live shows and how the technology is really reaching kids. We’ve been called, and He has blessed. We’ve both been married before and our previous experiences made us fearful of commitment. When you’re in that scene, you really wonder if this is all you’re ever going to be. You know how vile and filthy you are inside. If there’s comfort involved, it’s probably not for me. Pray for your mate. Ask God to soften your heart and show you ways to be a better spouse.
