Lasting Peace and True Power

Taking Self-Help to the Next Level
August 2008


The time is ripe for us to achieve personal and global peace. This will come about when we
understand the fundaments of True Power and put them into practice.

The 1960s and 70s, brought about enormous shifts in the relationship between the individual and society, as well as an explosion in new ways to explore our highest values. Words like Empowerment, Love, Compassion and Peace, became mainstream brought a revolution of self-exploration and freedom of expression. This resulted in personal healing, respect for the individual’s rights and ways of life, and the celebration of one’s uniqueness and personal path.

However, the 'me' mentality of the 1980s and 90s seemed to distract many of us. We still have not found the happiness, fulfillment or embodying our own personal power that we were searching for. Something seems to be missing. Many of us seem to be lost in processing our wounds and hurts, or stuck in the idea that we have to be 'nice.' At the same time, we may have achieved a certain level of contentment and balance in our lives, yet we are distressed by all the unrest throughout the world.

It is now time to go back to those very forces – Love, Compassion, Peace - unleashed in the 60’s and 70’s which we now laugh at as lofty and soft hippy stuff, rediscover their enormous power, and apply them to a 21st century world.

Whether you believe in the cosmic 2012 transition, or foresee the challenges unfolding as a result of the environmental crisis, or the shifting of economic and political power, or fundamentalist conflict, or the supersonic growth of technology, we are embarking on a new phase of human history – one that is asking of us to shift our own perceptions of ourselves, and more importantly, how we interact with others – those around us, our nation and the rest of the world.

This current climate is asking us to take all our learning and growth of the Self-Help Age and shift our focus – to come into our power, not just for ourselves, but also for the purpose of having a more positive impact on world events. The time is now – there is no more time to wait. When we can make this shift, then we will naturally continue to nurture ourselves, as well as become more engaged with the plight of others.

We will reframe what True Power really is – a way of being that leads to connection and cooperation, and no longer results in war, fear, and destruction. We will truly fulfill our life’s purpose and find our personal freedom, which will ultimately lead to lasting happiness.
