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 life. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things because you have been 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion 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 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 without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re 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 on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit 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 happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t 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 because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each 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 do not understand your goal, 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 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. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. I’m 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 own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very long time that I am a lucky 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 intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it is 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 would say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that 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, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to 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 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 is like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is 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 in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the 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 this, 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 authentic power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 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 like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential 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 is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
