In the unearthing of the financial crisis, what’s being exposed is the abuse of power. We’re all familiar with the quote about absolute power corrupting absolutely. It’s easy to point fingers and forget that we all must be mindful of our authority. It takes courage to be self-responsible and work toward a life of empowered humility. This means we live our life to our fullest potential, knowing that we are not all that exists. We are not God. We are co-creators with that which exists beyond us.  However, as humans, we do have much power and must be respectful of that fact. As far as Ted Haggard, Bernie Madoff, Governor Blagojevich, and all the others who have come to the light of day at this time, it is their personal work to determine what caused these enactments. If they are simply talking without insight and deep reflection, it is more of the same abuse. Excusing, explaining, and distorting the truth will not lead them to live from integrity, nor will it lead them to making the changes that are currently necessary to live as part of today’s society. If you listen to Obama’s inauguration speech you will hear the language and attitude of maturity, self-responsibility, and collective kindness that is currently rising in our group consciousness. Finally, let’s all be mindful to look into our own hearts at the way we perhaps use power.

Your closing words struck a chord on two notes. The first being a message that''s long been needed. The second, one of personal responsiblity. -- We''ve had it all along. Acknowledging ownership and exercising that knowledge is crucial. Thank you for your insight Dr. Jennifer. Thank you.

"...you will hear the language and attitude of maturity, self-responsibility, and collective kindness that is currently rising in our group consciousness. Finally, let’s all be mindful to look into our own hearts at the way we perhaps use power."
