One the doorstep of 2008 ask yourself a few questions.
What do you want for tomorrow? Meditate on it.
What do you want for the country? Meditate on it.
What do you want for the world? Meditate on it.
Perhaps we can change what may be.
Perhaps we can alter the destiny that lies before us.
Perhaps we can manifest a new destiny.
If you can learn to alter tomorrow....I can teach you to change next year today.
If you can learn to alter next year, we can change the decade to come.
It only takes three of us to alter the world...What can twelve do? Twenty-Two? A Hundred?
The Sumarians believed that the future was not yet manifest, the past a shadow that can be changed and improved since you knew what went wrong. The most important part was the present. To the Sumarians the present was the point in time where the future becomes the past.
Yet, a modern song writer put it a little more beautiful.
What kind of world do you want?
Let's start at the start
Build a masterpiece
Becareful what you wish for.
History starts NOW!
