In this world, there are a whole 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 now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the world, to be a part of the energy field that 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’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t 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 need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any 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 hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared 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’s 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’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able 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 is 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 sort of subtle. And if you do not focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. It is 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’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. 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’t have all this and not use it for something which 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 each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation as 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 return 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 team all the time. Don’t waste your time at 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 have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own 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’s like this it is 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 middle 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 yourself, from the link 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 soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, 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? And nobody can take that away from you.
