"You can't transmit something you haven't got" ~ Anon. This Principle applies to the individual, the nation & the world... as do all of the Principles I write about.

The reason that the human race is having so many problems right now is because we are trying to fix things from the top... down.

Bill Wilson, a co-founder of AA, tried to help a lot of people get sober & it didn't work. One day, when he was just about to throw in the towel, he said to his wife "I give up!

The person receiving help may or may not get & stay well... but the person giving help will ALWAYS triumph, over any & all difficulties. The goal for today: don't forget this Master Law of Life... giving is far more powerful than getting! Have a great day everybody!

When I give others the power to control my life, I can't really get mad at them when it doesn't turn out right. If I didn't give them that power to begin with... they couldn't run my life wrong. The problem isn't misuse of power... the real problem is that I shouldn't have handed over all that power in the first place. I shouldn't give others the power to control my thoughts, feeling & actions. I shouldn't give others the power to control my contentment, peace & freedom. I shouldn't give others the power to control my health, wealth & happiness. The goal for today: stop giving power to all the wrong people! Have a great day everybody!
