In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything as 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, understanding that whatever issues 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 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 predict that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in 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 are not big enough to do it. 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 larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your very 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 whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not 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’d 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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every person, each and every thing that has 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 purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not 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 focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re 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 will never ever reach your 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’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 group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as 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 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 would say to my group all the time. Do not 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 guy. 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 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 is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. 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 lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality 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 lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times 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’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is 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 frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
