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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything 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, understanding 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 world, 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 is something greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing 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 pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big 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 just your parents who wanted to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that specific 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 party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need 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 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 lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune 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 because of my hand 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 each individual, every single thing that’s 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 do not know your goal, your immediate goal 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 be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that doesn’t 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 do not 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 pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention 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 your whisper. 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’ve known for a very long time that 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 that 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 every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. 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 be worried about the other man in any situation as 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 it takes to look back and see where the other men are. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time in 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 you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that each 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 is going to return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from the connection 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 can align with this, 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 is the only real power that is 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’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times you end up 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 tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of 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?
