In this world, there are a 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 now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do all things because 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, knowing that whatever issues you may experience, 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 world, 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 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 ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. 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 greater than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was struck by that 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
Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m 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 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 great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune 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 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 that 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 has 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 don’t know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you do not pay attention to 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 listen to that. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t 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 that 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, one talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over 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 up our game. How you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation because you can not 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 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 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 man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will 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 will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which 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’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. 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 center, from the celestial ness yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is 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 are not going to be 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 doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful 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?
