Here are my notes (in point form) from Oprah’s final show (after twenty-five years on TV)
I hope they may of interest and perhaps even “enlightening” to you. Enjoy…
Find YOUR spark and illuminate the world.
Each ONE of us has a platform – no matter how small and insignificant we may think it is. It’s wherever you ARE that is your platform, your stage… and that is where your power lies.
EVERYONE is called… to service of others.
YOU are responsible for your life.
* Accepting this gets (sets) you free
* You aren’t alone – never!
* Demonstrate your power
There is a common thread that runs throughout our lives.
– we may think we are unworthiness of happiness
We often block blessings, because we don’t feel we are good enough, beautiful enough??
You ARE worthy, because you were born… and are HERE!
All the many troubled people on my shows wanted something simple validation. It’s a common desire – everyone wants to be heard.
Validate people. Say to them: “I hear what you say – it matters to me!”
God’s Grace (infinite) is omnipresent.
I felt a voice bigger than myself “talking” to me. A still voice – know it and wait to hear it. I wait and listen to the voice “greater than yourself”.
God is love, God is life and speaks to you in whispers – subtle at first. Then if you don’t pay attention, the voice gets louder and louder (like a brick gets thrown at you). Patterns seen in my life.
What is whispering to you? What is God saying to YOU?
Be a safe harbour for SOMEONE ELSE! Embrace, liberate and especially love. What you have to say really matters. There are no co-incidences in life – only divine order, God’s Grace.
OPRAH’S FINAL WORDS (to her audience)
From you I learned what love is. YOU are the love of my life. I do it with a great sense of gratitude – the opportunity to have done this work… and embraced you all. Sharing a “yellow brick road of blessings”.

“When you were born,
you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so when you die,
the world cries and you rejoice.”

Thanks, dearest mom, your spirit will live on…forever
