What the world needs now is love, sweet love. No, not just for some, but for everyone. The United States consequential election made me think of this song and how helpless we all feel because we believe the world has drained into a cesspool.
And since this site is about empowerment, let me lead the way. To move anything or start a movement, you need to lead by example.
If you think that too many people are living in poverty, then lead the way. Pour your heart and soul into becoming rich in an ethical way or at least self-sufficient. Then volunteer your wisdom to small groups in need of your newfangled knowledge and wisdom.
If you feel unglued, get focused. Do what you can to make the world you live in and the people you support to have more time and space to accomplish what they need to. Pour their coffee too. Iron their shirt or blouse while you do yours. Finish the leftover filing on your colleagues desk while he/she is at lunch.
There is so much we can do silently that will get the spirit of giving and receiving in gear. And be grateful for the air you can breathe, the roof over your head, and the sufficient food to sustain you and your loved ones until better days arrive.
Empowerment is more than words or guru-speak. Empowerment is working with what you have in your mental and physical toolbox to build castles in the sky and bring them back down.
