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 react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you believe 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 believe that you walk in 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 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 understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen 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 had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, that I am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at 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. There isn’t any 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 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 fact is for me and for each individual, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, your immediate objective 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 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 doesn’t 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 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 is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your 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 will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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’t 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 each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t 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’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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I feel every thought that 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 the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But 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?
