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 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’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, knowing 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 universe, 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 without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate 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 cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. 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 larger than you. And not just 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 the creation, all the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand 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. People notice when you do your very best people 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 divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to 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 every person, every single thing that has 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 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 discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on 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 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 do not listen 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 your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I am 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 own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time 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 which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been more than 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 is not to worry about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t 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. 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. Don’t 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 will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is that 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’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine 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’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true 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’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re 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 tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
