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 we all become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things as you’re 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 perspective 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 is 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’re co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at your 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. I’m 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 greater than you. And not only your parents who wanted to have a kid. 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 options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to understand this, that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you at 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 do not believe in fortune for me. 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 because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been prepared in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every individual, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not know your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you’re 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 in whispers and a whisper, usually on 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 do not 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. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I have known for a very 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 this and not use it for something which 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 every season somebody else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three constructions.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you step up your game is not to be worried about the other man in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other guys are. And if they’re too close scares you. So that’s what I would say to my team all the time. Don’t waste your time at the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other guy. It is about what can you do? You just have 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 have to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each 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 return. It’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It is already done. There’s an energy field. There’s an energy flow which I strongly feel in my own life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It’s 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 in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness of yourself, from your connection to source energy. What created you is the way 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 personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t lose everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How frequently 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 meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
