I am consciously living in the flow of life.
I accept the present moment as it is and release each moment as it passes. Trying to hold on to that which has passed inhibits me from experiencing the fullness of the current moment. Consciously present, accepting what is now, I am free to use my God-given abilities in productive ways.
I am in the flow of divine love and wisdom whether I am navigating challenges or basking in happiness; therefore, I accept this moment and whatever it holds. I know the goodness of God is active at all times, in all ways. Acceptance empowers me to make wise choices. With God as my guide, I live consciously in the flow of life.
The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore. Psalm 121:8

Chapter 4 – An Interval of Non-time
When the universe reaches a point of maximum expansion, a unique phenomenon will take place. There will be a moment when all laws necessary for the creative maintenance of physical matter and all materializing processes become suspended. Due to the relative velocities of the various star systems, this event will not be experienced simultaneously in all parts of the universe, but will travel as a wave across the sea of creation.
Existing within this ripple of non-time will be the focused conscious attention of the Creator. As it passes through the material realms, it will stay and take up residence in all life forms with circuitry capable of mirroring its essence. This is the moment when the Creator will slip inside Creation; the moment we are attempting to prepare you for.
This is the much misunderstood Second Coming of Christianity. It is the event that primitive civilizations have looked forward to as “the return of the gods.” The Mayans went so far as to pinpoint its actual occurrence in what you would call the year 2011 A.D. Yet while many of your traditions hint at what is about to transpire, none of them have adequately conveyed the magnitude of impact such an event will have. Indeed, no single conceptual structure is capable of conveying the enormity of what is soon to take place.

Leaders Never Stop Learning
Ben Franklin made this observation about a fellow he had known in Philadelphia: “The man died at 25, but wasn’t buried until 75.” Mr. Franklin was describing a man who stopped learning early on. In my field of work the leader is called “a coach.” To excel as a coach and leader, you must be a good teacher; to excel as a teacher, leader, and coach, you must remain a student who keeps learning. You must not die at 25. I believe the key to learning is listening with both your ears and your eyes. For me, it happened gradually, but it happened because I was blessed with teachers worth listening to.

If we can ask more elegant questions we are more likely to get more elegant answers.
What do we want the role of government to be in this first part of the 21st Century? Federal? State? Municipal?
Here are the platforms of the Republican Party and Democratic Party at their respective conventions in 2008 to benchmark their positions at the time.
