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 respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you believe that you can do all things because you have been endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you believe that you walk into the world, knowing 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 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 without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at your own 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’re not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. The fact that hag was struck 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 celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to understand 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. Folks notice when you do your 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 lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. There isn’t any luck without you being prepared to handle 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 person, 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 don’t know your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first 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 feels like that. It is that it’s that sort 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 don’t listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I’m 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 will never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time that I am a blessed 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 that 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 each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There have been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step our game up. How you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy 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’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time in 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 just have to run that race as hard as you can. You will 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. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that every 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 into the world is going to return. It’s 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 plenty of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it’s like this all of the time. It is 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 celestial ness yourself, from the connection 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 authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, as soon as your personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 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 many times 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’s time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, 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? And nobody can take that away from you.
