In this world, there are a whole lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that all of us become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do everything because 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 problems 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 which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I call that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding 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 at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to understand that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular 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 party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, the fact that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot 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 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 prepared in ways I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the fact is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that has 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 goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out 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 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 is 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 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. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t have all this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every 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 started. Our game, must step up our game. How you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my group all the time. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other guy is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can.

What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you are 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 ratio 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 divine ness of yourself, from your connection 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 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 true power. And that’s the only real power that is 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 like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
