In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, knowing that whatever problems you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding 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 most things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there is something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.
I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is 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 big enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every person, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is 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 sort of subtle. And if you do not 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. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all of this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s 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 ratio 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 center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the connection to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.
When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
