In this world, there are a lot of things which are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you respond to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do all things as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever problems 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that 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 options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not 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 hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each individual, 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 don’t know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not 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 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 listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. 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 lucky 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 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 group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it’s 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 are too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my team all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. 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 that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It’s 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 is an energy field. There’s 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 outside of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the divine ness 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 that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are going 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 doesn’t last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is 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 frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
