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 all of us become just what you believe. So if 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 think that you walk in 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 view 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 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 cannot survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large 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 only your parents that wanted to have a kid. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a party that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of the creation, all 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, that I’m 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 individuals 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 lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. 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 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’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you’re supposed to do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just feels like that. It is 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’s like getting bumped upside the head.
You do not pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing this, that is your whisper at is the whisper. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time 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 goal, rules your life and decides 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, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man 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 that 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’d say to my group all the time. Do not waste your time at 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’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.
What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness of yourself, from the link to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, regardless of what you call it.
When you’re able to align with this, 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 spirit, that is true power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are likely to bag and you are not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. 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 were supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
