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 we all become exactly what you believe. So in case you think that you can do everything because you’re 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 problems 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 which is [inaudible] omniscient, all knowing and all present in most things.
I call that God, but I do nothing without that, knowing 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 at your own pitiful, meager little wheel, and what’s left up to you and you can’t do it. You can’t survive in this world by yourself, just believing in yourself. You’re not big enough to do it. I am not big enough to do it. Nobody’s big enough to do it. You have to comprehend that your very presence here as a human being on earth came from something greater than you. And not just your parents that wanted to have a child. The fact that that hag was hit by that particular little sperm in that particular moment, and you were created, wow. How amazing is that of all the different options that had to happen in order for you
Now? What a celebration that is.
So once you understand the mystery of the creation, all of the conditions that needed to configure and reconfigure themselves, all the questions that we don’t have answers to, you need to understand this, that I am here matters the fact that you are there matters. This is no accident. None of us are when do well. Folks notice when you do your best individuals notice. And so wherever you are always do your best and doing your best places you in the next level. Nothing about my life is blessed. Nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, plenty 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 handle that moment of opportunity. And so what I would 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 that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for.
And the truth is for me and for every 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 don’t know your purpose, your immediate goal 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 do. The sooner you are able to get about the business of doing that, the world speaks to us always first in whispers and a whisper, usually in your life feels like, Hmm, that is odd. Or that does not 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 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. You don’t pay attention to that. Life is about growth and change. When you’re no longer doing that, that is your whisper at is the whisper. That I am supposed to do something else. 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 cannot do it. I have known for quite a 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 of this and not use it for something that is for the greater good, your intention, rules your life and decides the outcome. Every time it would happen, I would say to my team, well, it doesn’t matter because every season somebody else was coming out, one talk show to reveal two talk shows three structures.
There’ve been more than a hundred talk show since we began. But every time I would feel like, all right, got gotta step up. Our game, must step up our game. How you step up your game isn’t to be worried about the other guy in any situation because you can not control. The other guy cannot control the other man. So it’s like running a race, the energy that it takes to look back and see where the other men are. And if they are 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 simply 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 space. That is my religion. That is the fundamental, 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 make an opposite and equal reaction. So everything that I put out to the world is going to return. It is the golden rule on steroids, the golden rule on steroids.
It’s true that as you do unto others, they’ll do unto you. It is 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’re either in flow or out of it. And if you’re in flow, it is 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 proportion 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 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’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 personality comes to serve the energy of your soul, that is true power. And that is the only real power that is cause you don’t eliminate everything else. Okay? How beautiful you are. One 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 end up pulled up and how many hairdos and the number of make-overs are, what you do. You know that does not last. It is just like the most beautiful flowering shrub, everything passes and it’s time. How many times you make the most influential lists, all of that changes, all that changes. But what is real, what’s lasting is who you are and what you were supposed to bring. What is the gift you were supposed to give? And nobody can take that away from you.
