In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever issues you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for quite a long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from the connection to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
