carrie fisher and debbie reynolds interview with oprah winfrey

In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are 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’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular 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 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 need to understand this, that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. 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 due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I did not 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 one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out 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 universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort 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 do not listen to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. 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 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 each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, must step our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as 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 guys 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. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you got 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’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of 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 that, 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 soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is 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 of that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
