Myths to Be Dispelled in 2011 – I: The Affirmation Spot for Thursday December 30, 2010

Today’s Affirmation:

As I uncover the big lies in my life and in my world, my big truths set me free!

If we are to transform ourselves or transform our world, we must be willing to let go of some myths. We must be willing, not only, to release the myths but also speak the truth. Over the first few weeks of 2011, I’m going to be sharing some myths that I believe we must address. Love to hear your comments and thoughts.

Myth: Our leaders consistently tell us we have a security deficit. Their prescription is perpetual war, the end of privacy, and mistrust of each other.

Truth: We have a humanity deficit. We must wage radical peace, support freedom over repression, and trust each other more than ever.

Many will read this and the first words out of their mouths will be…..”But they…”. “But they…” has become an excuse for not working on ourselves – an excuse we can no longer afford. There are those, perhaps in the Pentagon and in caves in Pakistan, who are saying right now, “You can’t reason with these people. They only understand one thing.”

As I said, a humanity deficit. When we don’t address humanity deficits they become security deficits. The answer? We must start calling the problem what it really is. Then, and only then, can we hope to solve it. Our humanity, not scanners, walls, and wars, is the solution.

Stay inspired!
