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 lifetime. What I know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you think 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 into the world, knowing that whatever issues 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 understanding that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. Nobody’s big 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 just your parents that desired 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 options that had to happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that had 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 well. People notice when you do your best individuals 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, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle 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 I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each 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 do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that 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 are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort of subtle. And if you don’t focus on 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. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot 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’t 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 someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. How you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man 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 that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they are 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 man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. 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 make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll 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 men and women who do you’re 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 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 yourself, from the link to source energy. That which 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 true power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character 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. One 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 get yourself 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 tree, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that 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.
