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 react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things as you’re 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 experience, 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 that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand 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 not do it. You cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that 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 choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters that you are 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 are 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, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There is no luck without you being ready 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 prepared in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for every individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, your immediate objective 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 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 on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is 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 is 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. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. 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’t 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’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation as you can’t 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 men are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Do not 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 guy. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible. You 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. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will make 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’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s 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 outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself 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 your link to source energy. What 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 authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing 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 end up 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. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who 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.
