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 life. What I now know is that all of us become exactly 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 experience, 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 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 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 with no understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not understanding that puts you at your pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is 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 large enough to do it. You need to comprehend 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 hit by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different choices that had to occur in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, the fact that I am here matters that you’re 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 are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. Luck is preparation meeting. 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 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 do not know their purpose. And if you do not understand your purpose, your immediate goal is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to be doing. 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’s 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 listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t pay attention to that. The brick wall falls down. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. You’ll never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for a very long time I am a blessed person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can not have all of this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your intention, 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 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. How you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other guy in any situation because 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. 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 guy. It’s about what can you do? You just have to run that race as hard as you can.
What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That’s the fundamental, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I feel every thought that I have that moves into action will make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. 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 is already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel in my own life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it is like this it’s like this all the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the middle, from the celestial ness of yourself, from your link to source energy. What created you is the way out of sync you are with your life, whatever you call it.
When you can align with this, 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 soul, that is true power. And that’s 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 going 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 the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t 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 of that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you’re meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
