In this world, there are a lot of things that are beyond our control, but what you do have control over is how you react to whatever happens in your life. What I now know is that we all become just what you believe. So if you think that you can do everything 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, knowing that whatever issues 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 that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.

I predict that God, but I do nothing with no understanding how I believe one masters one’s life is to understand that you’re co-creating that life with the greatest creator, not knowing 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 by yourself, 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 on earth came from something larger than you. And not only your parents who desired to have a child. 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 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 the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to know this, that I am here matters that you’re 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 are always do your best and doing your best puts you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, plenty of celestial order, man, I don’t believe in fortune for me. Luck is preparation meeting. There isn’t any 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 each person, each and every thing that’s ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A lot of people don’t know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, 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 are able to get about the business of doing that, the universe speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in 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 sort of subtle. And if you do not 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 listen to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. When you are no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something different. I am interested in seeing what the rest of the world has to offer me anyone pretending to be anything other than who you really are. You will 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’t have all this and not use it for something which is for the greater good, your goal, rules your life and determines the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d 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 structures.

There have been over a hundred talk show since we started. But every time I’d feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. 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 can’t control the other man. So it is like running a race, the energy it takes to look back 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. Don’t 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 have 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’s an equal and opposite reaction. That’s my religion. That’s the basic, 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 is going to create an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world will return. It’s 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 lots of other people who do you are either in flow or out of it. And if you are in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It is like this. It is like flowing with the stream. And the flow is in direct ratio to the middle of your self where God abides or universal energy abides, where the divine in you abides, how far you are from the center, from the divine ness 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 that, nobody can touch you. Gary Zuckoff calls that authentic power in his publication 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 lose everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. 1 day your breasts are likely 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 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, just how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list. How frequently you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But 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? And nobody can take that away from you.
