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 respond to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if 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 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 part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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 greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. 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 on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact 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
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I did not 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 do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover 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. It just 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.
You do not pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time 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 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 each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.
There’ve been more than 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 our game up. The way you step up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. 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 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 is about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as possible.
What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I think 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 come back. It is 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’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside 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 ratio to the middle 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 link 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, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re 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 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. How many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
