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 life. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you think that you can do all things because you’re endowed by a power from on high given to you, by the grace of God, you think that you walk into the world, understanding that whatever problems you may experience, 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 which 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 without that, understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and everything is left up to you and you can not 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 have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular 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 celebration that is.
So when you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, the fact that I’m here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. People notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best places you at the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. 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 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 prepared in ways that I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the fact is for me and for every person, every single thing that has 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 know 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 are 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 on your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It’s 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 don’t listen to that. You don’t pay attention to that. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is your whisper. You will never ever reach your personal potential. You cannot 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 not have all of 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’d say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because each season someone else was coming out, one talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, got to step up our game. How you measure up your game is not to worry about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy can’t control the other guy. So it’s like running a race, the energy 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 team 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 is about what can you do? You simply need to run that race as hard as possible. You will need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.
What I know is you have to take responsibility for the distance. That is my religion. That’s the basic, uh, construct of my faith. And by that, I mean, I know that every thought that I think every thought that I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will come back. It is true that as you do unto others, they’ll 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 people who do you’re either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion 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 celestial ness of yourself, from the connection 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 that, 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 soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you’re not going to be beautiful. And it doesn’t matter how much Botox and how many times 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 just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what’s lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
