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 just what you believe. So in case you think 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 issues you may encounter, 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 world, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in all things.
I predict that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are 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 by yourself, just believing in yourself. 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 wanted to have a child. The fact that that hag was struck by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were 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 when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all 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 am here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. 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 places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being prepared to deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hands in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for each individual, every single thing that’s 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 know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you are 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 universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not 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 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 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. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot do it. I have known for a very long time 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 that 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 someone else was coming out, 1 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, must step up our game. The way you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. 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 men are. It takes energy away from you. 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 man is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible.
What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I understand that each 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 to the world is going to 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 is 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’re 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 proportion 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 celestial ness yourself, from the link to source energy. That which created you is the way 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 is the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It is 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 who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
