In this world, there are a 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 know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything as you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe 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 view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a portion of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t 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 need 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 child. 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 options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your very 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 blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I do not believe in fortune 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’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 has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not 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’re 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’s odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s that it’s that sort 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 listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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 which is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. 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. It takes energy away from you. And if they’re 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 guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It’s 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 distance. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I think every thought 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 return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other men and women 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 the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. 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 divine ness yourself, from your connection 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 authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is authentic 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 going 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 get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
