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 lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in 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 part of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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 call that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. I’m 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 desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the 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 accident. 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 places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. There isn’t any luck without you being ready 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 ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every individual, every single 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 purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are 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 on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really 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 listen to that. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. I am 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 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 this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There have been over 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 measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. 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 men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is 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 know that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make 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’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is 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 in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness 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’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you’re not going to be 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 doesn’t last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s 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 powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
