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 life. What I now know is that we all become exactly what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything because you have been 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 perspective of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, 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 predict that God, but I do nothing without that, understanding how I think 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 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 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 only your parents that desired to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that 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
Now? What a party that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all the circumstances that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all of the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, that I’m here matters the fact that you’re there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. People notice when you do your best individuals 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 blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in luck for me. The moment of opportunity. There is no luck without you being ready to handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would say for myself is, is that because of my hand in a hand and a force greater than my own, I have been ready in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.

And the truth is for me and for each individual, every single thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people don’t know their purpose. And if you don’t understand your purpose, your immediate objective is to figure out that because otherwise you’re just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you’re supposed to do. 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’s odd. It just feels like that. It’s 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 is like getting bumped upside the head.

You don’t listen to that. You don’t listen to that. Life is about growth and change. When you are no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You can’t do it. I’ve known for quite a long time I am a lucky person. And that to whom much is given much is also required that you can’t 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 somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three constructions.

There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. Our game, got to step up our game. How you step 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. So it is like running a race, the energy that 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 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’s not about the other man. It’s about what can you do? You just need to run that race as hard as possible.

What I know is that you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which says for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That is the fundamental, uh, assemble of my faith. And by that, I mean, I understand that every thought that I feel every thought I have that moves into action is going to make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out into the world will return. It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It’s already done. There’s an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my 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’s like this all of the time. It is like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. And the flow is in direct proportion to the center of yourself where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine within you abides, how far you are from the center, from the celestial ness 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’re able to 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 character 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 beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are likely to sag and your eyes are likely 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 how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is like the most beautiful flowering tree, everything passes and it is time. It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How many times you make the most influential lists, all 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 meant to give?
