Don’t think I haven’t seen what has been going on around here in my absence!
What is more….don’t think I care!
For there is one thing that all of you plotters and conspirators have forgotten, in your mad rush for glory, in your heady quest for power!
You cannot steal what is freely given
And thus do I defeat the coup!!!!!
By reminding you and insisting that this is already YOUR blog. That this and all community efforts …..up to and including representative democracies…are ruled by those who stand up and speak out. By those who take responsibility and do the work, that power demands. Eve down to the power of being one of 300 million citizens.
Or a poster on a blog. The more you participate, the more power you have. The Louder you Yell, the more who will be forced to listen. IF you accept the responsibility that goes along with that power, and thus show all and sundry that you are worthy, you will gain respect and credibility, which i an edless feedback loop, brings power.
The world NEEDS YOU to become powerful!!!
I freely give you the Throne, the Key, and the Pillar of Fire!
Take them and become powerful and go forth (or just lay around in front of your ‘puter….like, whatever!) and change the world …with my blessing!
Which, with four bucks, will get you a gallon of gas!
So PLEASE enter the halls of power….but when you enter the break room in the halls of power and use my coffee cup and don’t wash it….Look out!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
