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 lifetime. What I know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything as you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever issues you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view 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 all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think 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 everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact 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 options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed 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 crash. 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to 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 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 do not understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort 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 don’t listen 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. That I am supposed to do something different. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very 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 determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back 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. 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 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 will 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 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’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into 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 is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. 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 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’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s 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 frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How many times 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’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
