christmas quotes 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 lifetime. What I know is that we all become exactly 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 experience, 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 part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s 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 with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that particular 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
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had 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 the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. 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 puts you in 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 ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hand 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 fact is for me and for each individual, 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 do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re 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 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 kind of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very 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 of this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines 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 reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot 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 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 guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply need 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 have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to 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’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 men and women 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 center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness 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 authentic 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 true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going 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 frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just 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. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
