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 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 everything as you’re 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 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 world, 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 call that God, but I do nothing with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing that puts you in your 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. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to happen in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your best people 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 lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of celestial order, man, I don’t 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 due to my hand 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 truth is for me and for every person, every single thing that’s 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 know your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the universe speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in 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 sort of subtle. And if you don’t focus on 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. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. 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 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 goal, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my group, well, it doesn’t matter because each season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.
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. The way you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation as you can not 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 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. Do not 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 got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I meanI understand that each thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to come back. It’s 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’s an energy field. There’s 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 outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all of the time. It’s like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle 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 connection to source energy. That which created you is how out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.
When you can align with that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true power in his publication seat of the soul. He says, when 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. One day your breasts are likely 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is who you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
