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 now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case 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 believe that you walk in the world, understanding that whatever issues you may experience, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view 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 most things.
I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You need 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 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 celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had 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 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 in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d 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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every person, each and every thing that has 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 understand your goal, 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’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on 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 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 are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time that I am a lucky 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 that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, must step our game up. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other guys are. 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 at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I think every thought that 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 is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll 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’re 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 flow. 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 divine ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.
When you can align with this, 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 is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 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 many times you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of 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 is time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
