In this world, there are a 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 now know is that all of us 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 in 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 part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things. And so my confidence comes from knowing that there’s 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 recognize 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 can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m 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 larger than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of 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’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’re always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. 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 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 each 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 don’t understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. It just feels like that. It’s 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 pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen 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. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have 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’t have all of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone 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 started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to be worried about the other guy in any situation because 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 it takes to return and see where the other guys 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 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 man. It is about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.
What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the space. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel every thought 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 is true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s 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 are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s 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 your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness yourself, from the 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 this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your character comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many 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 influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
