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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything because you have been 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 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 part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all 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 are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a kid. The fact 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 party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that needed 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 are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There is no luck without you being prepared to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that due to my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate objective 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 have the ability 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 really 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 don’t listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t 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 decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d 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 constructions.
There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other man 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 it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they are too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Do not 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 is about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that every thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to 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 is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It’s 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 middle, from the celestial ness yourself, from your link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.
When you’re able to align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One 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 frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give?
