In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life. 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 as 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, understanding that whatever issues 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 that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most 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 predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not do it. You cannot survive in this world on your own, just believing in yourself. You’re 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 in the world came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular 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
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when 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 know this, that I’m here matters that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. 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 deal with that moment of opportunity. And so what I’d say for myself is, is that because of my hand 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 person, each and every 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 understand your goal, 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 have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us 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 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 listen to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You’ll never ever reach your personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for quite a long time 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 which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because every season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.

There’ve been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you measure up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to return and see where the other men 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. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other guy 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 you can.

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’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I meanI know that every thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.

It is 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 that I strongly feel within my life. And I know lots of other men and women who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is 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 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 divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.

When you’re able to align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication 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’s the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One 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 frequently you get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give?
