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 now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things 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, knowing 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 view 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’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 without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest 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 can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 just your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with 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 I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every person, 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 do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out 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 always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. 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 pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve 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 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 team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team 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 is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.
What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to come back. It’s 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 which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle 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 your connection to source energy. What 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 authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One 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 get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
