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 lifetime. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So if you believe that you can do everything as you’re 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 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 portion of the energy field which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You are not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big 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 just your parents who 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 choices 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 needed 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 are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re 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 great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with 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’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to do. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us 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 feels like that. It’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not 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. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. 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 personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for a very 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 which 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, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.

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, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation because 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 it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is that you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It’s 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 are in flow, it is 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 yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 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 frequently you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
