In this world, there are a whole lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever problems you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most 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 greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your 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 large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. 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 options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hand 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 fact is for me and for each person, each and every thing that’s 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 don’t understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind 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. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy can’t control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every 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 into the world will return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or out 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 proportion to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from your link 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 this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic 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 likely 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 get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
