In this world, there are a whole lot of things which 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 we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do all things 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, 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 world, to be a portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most 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 without that, knowing how I believe 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 pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were 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 when you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your very best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I didn’t 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 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 purpose, your immediate goal 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 do. The sooner you have the ability 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 sort of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is 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 are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the 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 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 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 every 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 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 be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back 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 would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply need 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 have to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion 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 middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the connection to source energy. What created you is the way 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 true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are not going to be as beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is 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 that changes, all of that changes. But 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?
