As I watched Mr.. Bush leave Washington yesterday I was glad to see him headed back to Texas.
Eight years ago when he took the office of president many had hopes that he would bring us years of prosperity and global peace.
Instead we all listened to his and Chaney’s fear mongering and got caught up in the
We began to look for danger behind not only ever tree, but every bush.
Our nation’s fear allowed us to be silent as our constitutional rights were eroded and later as we found out torture was being used, making us the same as the terrorist, most said nothing.
The lessons of Bush and Chaney’s eight years is the power of fear to lead us into the dark, murky places where roots tangle around our ankles and it’s hard to find our way again.
It took this nation eight years to begin to realize how dangerous fear is.
I am reminded of what Job said, “what I have fear most has come to me”.
We found ourselves with something to fear in addition to terrorists.
Hundreds of thousands have lost jobs, homes and trillions in the stock market.
We had to choose between milk for our children or another tank of gas at over $4.00 a gallon. The price of everything rose while jobs were on the down swing.
This is the lesson of fear, to a nation and to each individual.
We have now come back to our senses. We have latched onto the energy of hope and well being. We took ourselves a long way down the road of fear to show ourselves just how important and powerful we are in creating our experiences, our reality.
Now that hope has arrived like a warming sun on a cold day, millions around the world have joined hands with each other to combine energy and creative power to bring about much desired changes.
As we see the power of hope growing and transforming individuals across the planet, each of us can connect with this power of change, we can allow it to flow in and through us, we can Be the energy of change.
Whatever is in your life that is not as you would like it to be, this is the time to channel hope to the situation, infuse it with hope. Watch joyfully as this energy transform your life from the inside out.
Let us uplift our new President Obama, keep him in light and wisdom. Let us join our light, our love, our hope with his, that great changes will take place.
America is on her way to once again being a great nation, a nation of love, kindness, inner strength, moral direction and equal protection under the law for each individual.
Welcome back Lady America. I have missed you.
