In this world, there are a 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 all of us become just what you believe. So in case you believe 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 in 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 portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re 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 not do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know 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 very best individuals 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle 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 I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, each and every thing that has 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 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 discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability 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’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t 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. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I’m interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t 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 not have all of this and not use it for something which 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 every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have 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 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 is like running a race, the energy 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’d say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time at 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 simply need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, 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, 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 spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely 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 does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
