"All I know is that, on their own, human beings are not programmed to be able to handle that much fame, that much adulation, that much success.

The only way to deal with something that overwhelming -- even overwhelming success -- is if you are spiritually centered.

If you believe that you deserve all that money and adulation, that is a problem. If you believe you don't deserve it, that's also a problem. And if you don't understand this, you're in trouble.

I 've been in the business 59 years and I've seen it over and over again.

It's all about trusting a higher power; believing in divinity.

It's about cause and manifestation. Cause being God's job, manifestation clearly being our job.

The moment success leads you to say, I'll take it from here, God, God's reply will be, Be my guest. And God will walk out of the room.

The only way to navigate that road is to have humility and grace.

Those are the two cardinal rules.

You must approach creativity with humility and have grace when you're blessed with success.
