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 respond to whatever happens in your lifetime. What I now know is that we all become just 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, understanding that whatever problems 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 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 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 without that, knowing how I believe 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 own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can’t do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents who wanted to have a kid. 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
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine 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 ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that due to my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for each person, every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A lot of people do not know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out 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 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 does not make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t pay attention to the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it’s like getting bumped upside the head.
You do not pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. When you are no longer doing that, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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’t have all 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 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, got to step our game up. The way you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. You only have control over yourself. So it’s like running a race, the energy it takes to look back and see where the other guys are. It takes energy away from you. And if they are 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 guy. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is you have to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will come back. 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’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct ratio to the center 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 the link 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, as soon as your character comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is 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 as 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 that changes, all of that changes. But 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? And nobody can take that away from you.
