feminist quotes oprah winfrey

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 know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything as you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever issues 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 universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact 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
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial 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’d say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I didn’t 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 one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re 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. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort 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 do not listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You will 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 goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d 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 over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in 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’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. 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, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to 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 is already done. There is an energy field. There is 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’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all 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 middle, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can 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 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 likely 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 frequently 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 is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s 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 of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
