In this world, there are a whole 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 all of us become exactly what you believe. So if you think 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 think 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 understanding 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 part of the energy field that 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 with no knowing how I think one masters one’s life is to understand that you are co-creating that life with the ultimate creator, not understanding that puts you at your own 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 are not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You need to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that hag was struck by that little sperm in that specific moment, and you had been created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
Now? What a party that is.
So once you recognize the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you have to know this, that I am here matters that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your very best people notice. And so wherever you’re always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. The moment of opportunity. 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 prepared in ways I did not even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for each individual, 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 know your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure that out because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can figure out what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually in 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’s that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you don’t focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is 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’re no longer doing this, 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 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’t have all this and not use it for something that 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 each season someone else was coming out, 1 talk show to show two talk shows three structures.
There have been more than a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. How you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy 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’s like running a race, the energy it takes to return 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. Don’t waste your time in the race, looking back to see where the other man is or what the other guy is doing. It’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible. You need to give it everything you’ve got all the time for yourself, for yourself.
What I know is you got to take responsibility for the distance. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, construct of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each 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 is going to return. 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 within my life. And I know lots of other people who do you are either in flow or outside of it. And if you are in flow, it is like this it is like this all the time. It is 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 yourself, from the connection to source energy. That which 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 character 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. One day your breasts are going to sag and your eyes are going to bag and you are 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 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 frequently you make the most powerful lists, all of that changes, all of that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
