    Feb 20 2013: 1. People will become self-aware and regain ownership of their power - which will make life better for all.
    2. I am partially responsible already. Society is the sum total of its members.
    3. I work daily on self-improvement.

      Feb 20 2013: In regards to your # 1: What do you believe will trigger people to become self aware? What methods can be used to regain power? Do your answers pertain to a specific country or world-wide?

        Feb 20 2013: I believe that the collapse of our fiscal structure will trigger questions. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening until after yet another major war is initiated in order to prop up the economy (though that will not be the stated reason).

        When it all falls like Humpty Dumpty, I believe that there will be enough like me (having met so many on-line) who will help direct mankind to a better understanding of who and WHAT they are, and how to use their immense powers. They will do this more by example than by taking ownership of leadership positions. The power hierarchy is antithetical to how life works.

        I see a much better, kinder, gentler, cooperative, and sane culture replacing this one - and yes, in my lifetime - and yes, around the world. The awakening is a global one.
