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 life. What I know is that all of us become exactly 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 think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever problems you may encounter, you still have God to lean on. As I grew my perception and understanding 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.
I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at 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 on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of 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 accident. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with 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 did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know 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’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe 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 really 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’s like getting bumped upside the head.
You don’t pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot 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 not have all of this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, 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, one 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 because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. 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’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d 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 is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to 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 is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It’s 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 within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the connection 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, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s 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’re not going to be as 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 does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, just how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
