In this world, there are a whole 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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, understanding 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 portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m 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 greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. 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, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck 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 ready in ways 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 one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very 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 that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step our game up. How you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back 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’d say to my team all the time. Don’t 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 you can.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. 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 will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or out 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 middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the 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, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, 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 going to bag and you’re not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
