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 all of us become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever problems 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 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 all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding 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 pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been 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 understand the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to 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 fact is for me and for each person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not know your goal, your immediate objective 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 always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It is 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. You don’t listen to that. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. 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 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 that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides 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’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 our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other guys are. 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 need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I feel every thought 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 is 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 which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re 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 ratio to the center of your self 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 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’re able to align with that, 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 true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going 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 frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
