With many voices of so called authority speaking through your shiny devices, your 24 hour news, TV, radio, podcasts, newspapers, e-mail, Facebook, and other social media, you might be tempted to allow them to dictate your agenda, your itinerary, your thoughts, your fears, your beliefs, your affiliations, your choices large and small, your taps and clicks.
You are the curator of your life, the gatekeeper of your thoughts and beliefs. You are in charge unless you decide to give away your power to those who wish to sow discontent, to change your mind, to implant their beliefs in you, to distract you from more important things, to manipulate your behavior, to make a buck from having you click on their content, play their little games and come under their spell.
I say to my human friends, step up, take back your autonomy, your inner power. Trust your innate authority to know yourself! Regain confidence in your own beliefs. Look inward and get to know your own mind, so you can stand in the light of your own personal truth.
Of course you must get the facts then make up your own mind. Choose your sources wisely. Do they have an axe to grind, stuff to sell, a point of view that disregards reality? Are they trying to manipulate you?
