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 know is that we all become just what you believe. So in case you think 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 into the world, knowing 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.

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 ultimate creator, not knowing that puts you in your own 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. You’re not big enough to do it. I’m not big enough to do it. 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 larger than you. And not only your parents that desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck by that little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to occur in order for you
To be here?

Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of that creation, all of the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you need 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 well. People notice when you do your best people notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best puts you at the next level. Nothing about my life is lucky. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of divine order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. 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 hands 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 fact is for me and for each person, each and every thing that has 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 do not understand your purpose, 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’re supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us in whispers and a whisper, usually on your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that doesn’t make any sense or Hmm, is that right? It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that kind 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 don’t pay attention to that. It’s like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen 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 own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve 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 not have all this and not use it for something which 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 someone else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step our game up. The way you measure up your game isn’t to worry about the other man in any situation because you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other guy. So it is like running a race, the energy that it takes to return and see where the other men are. And if they’re 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 guy is or what the other guy is doing. It is not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You simply have to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is you got to take responsibility for the space. That’s my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I think every thought I have that moves into action will create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world is going to return. It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow that I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty 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 is like this all the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, 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, regardless of what you call it.

When you can align with this, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that true 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 authentic power. And that’s the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. 1 day your breasts are going 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 get yourself pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s just like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it’s time. How frequently you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all that changes. However, what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give?
