In this world, there are a 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 know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything because you’re 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 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 call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at 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 big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact 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 celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not 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 nicely. 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 lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle 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 prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover 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 is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.
You don’t pay attention to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. 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 personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for quite a long time that 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’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy that 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 would say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have 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 space. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I think 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 is going to come back. 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’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots 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’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from your connection 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, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that is the only real power that’s 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 as 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’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, 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 powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
