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 lifetime. What I 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 believe 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 comprehension of what God means grew with me, I expanded my view of what it means to be, um, a citizen of the universe, to be a part of the energy field that is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most 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 without that, understanding how I think one masters one’s life is to recognize that you are co-creating that life with the greatest 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. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s large enough to do it. You have to understand that your very presence here as a human being in the world came from something larger than you. And not just your parents who desired to have a kid. The fact that that hag was struck 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 happen in order for you
To be here?
Now? What a celebration that is.
So when you understand the mystery of that creation, all the conditions that had to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we do not have answers to, you have to understand this, the fact that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no crash. None of us are when do nicely. Folks notice when you do your very best individuals 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 whole lot of grace, a great deal of blessings, a lot of divine order, man, I do not believe in luck for me. 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 due to 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 each individual, each and every thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing one for the moment that is to come. A good deal of people do not know their purpose. And if you do not understand your goal, your immediate goal is to figure out that because otherwise you are just wandering around here. So the moment you can discover what it is you are supposed to be doing. The sooner you have the ability to get about the business of doing this, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that’s odd. It just really feels like that. It is that it’s that kind of subtle. And if you do not focus on the whisper, it gets louder and louder and louder. And I say, it is like getting bumped upside the head.
You don’t pay attention to that. It is like getting a brick upside your head. You don’t listen to that. The brick wall falls down. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing this, this is your whisper at is your whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. You will never ever reach your own personal potential. You cannot 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 intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I’d say to my group, 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 started. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. The way you step up your game is not to worry about the other guy in any situation as you can’t control. The other guy cannot control the other man. You only have control over yourself. So it’s 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 team all the time. Don’t 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 have 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 that you got to take responsibility for the distance. You hold here and understand that the third law of motion, which states for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction. That is my religion. That is the basic, uh, assemble of my religion. And by that, I mean, I know that each thought that I feel 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’s the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It is true that as you do unto others, they will do unto you. It’s already done. There is an energy field. There is an energy flow which I strongly feel within my life. And I know plenty of other people who do you’re either in flow or outside of it. And if you’re in flow, it’s like this it is like this all of the time. It’s like this. It’s like flowing with the flow. 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 of yourself, from your link 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 authentic power in his book seat of the soul. He says, when your personality comes to serve the energy of your spirit, that is true power. And that is the only real power that’s cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How amazing you are. One day your breasts are likely 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 many times you end up pulled up and how many hairdos and how many make-overs are, what you do. You know that doesn’t last. It’s like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it is time. How many times you make the most powerful lists, all that changes, all of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting is that you are and what you’re supposed to bring. What’s the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
