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 life. What I now know is that all of us become just 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 think that you walk in 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 perspective 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. 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 predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been 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 when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that needed 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 the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your very 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 lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of 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 truth is for me and for every person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe 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 kind 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. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. 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’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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’t have all this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d 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’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. 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 team all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. 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 is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is 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 your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness yourself, from your connection to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with that, 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 spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you get yourself 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 shrub, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most powerful 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?
