oprah winfrey season 1 episode 1

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 react to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that all of us become just what you believe. So in case you believe 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, understanding 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 most 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 with no knowing how I think 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 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’re not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances 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 am here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to deal with 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 didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every person, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t know your purpose, 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 are supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us 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. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. 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 lucky 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 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 team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show 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, must step up our game. How you step up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can not 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 that it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into 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 is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic power. And that’s 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 likely 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
