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 respond to whatever happens in your life. What I know is that all of us 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 believe 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 comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view 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 most things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you at your own 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. You are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 who wanted to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you were 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 party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the 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 know 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. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. There is no luck without you being ready to handle 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 I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for each person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out 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 are able to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It’s 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’s like getting bumped upside the head.

You do not pay attention to that. You don’t pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very long time that I am a lucky 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 that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we started. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you step up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy that 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’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’s 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 that you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that each 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 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 is already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic 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 is the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently 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 shrub, 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 many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all 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 meant to give?
