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 respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything as 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 problems 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 which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.
I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you in 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. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific 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 the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re 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 lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to deal with 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 that I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every person, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really feels like that. It is 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’s like getting bumped upside the head.
You do not listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your 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 own 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 not 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’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody 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, must step up our game. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.
What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know 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 into the world will return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s true that as you do unto others, they will 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 men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from your link to source energy. What created you is the way 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 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 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 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’s like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, 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 is lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
