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 lifetime. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you believe 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 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.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand 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’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m 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 just your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, that I’m 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 are always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands 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 truth is for me and for every person, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand 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 that, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. When you’re 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’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not 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 group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. 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 cannot control the other guy. 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 team all the time. Don’t 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 guy. It is about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I think 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 will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty 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’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness yourself, from the link 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, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going 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 how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times 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 meant to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give?
