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 know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything as you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk in the world, knowing that whatever issues you may encounter, 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 which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. You are 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 in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents who desired 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 happen in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, that I’m here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your very 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, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There isn’t any luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth 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 lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do. 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 in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s 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 kind of subtle. And if you do not 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 pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. 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 cannot 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 this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines 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, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. So it is 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’d say to my group all the time. Don’t 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 simply have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to come back. 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 that 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’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what 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 spirit, that is authentic power. And that is 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 going to bag and you’re 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 how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not 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, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who 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.
