Occupy YOU: The 'New Agreement'

So, Wall Street and many other financial centers around the world are being occupied by protesters. But what is the underlying motivation for the protests and what is the ultimate goal from this whole protesting process? Do we have any solutions?

If you are like me, then you are finished with the 'old agreement'. This the agreement where we (the '99%') hand over our authority to employers, bankers, and whomever else we deem 'worthy' in exchange for our security, safety, & our 'right' to survive and live. To me, this is finished.

Recognizing that the old agreement of individual devaluation just isn't working and that we need a 'NEW agreement' that reflects the value of our rare and unique input that we BRING to society is what I see as the heart of this movement. The process of losing our supposed sources of value (i.e. jobs, homes etc.) has revealed to us a new perception of self-worth and the collective realization of this new awareness IS what the Occupy Wall Street movement is all about!

The 'Titanic' IS sinking, despite its apparent 'un-sinkability' according to the authorities to whom we have handed our power. Just as WE have chosen to be a part of the old agreement, we have a choice in how we react to the collapse. We can panic and point fingers or we can play our 'music' and trust that we can swim until we figure everything out.

Hold on for the ride, things WILL get better! But in a whole new way that actually WORKS!

That's the way that I see it anyway, but you are FREE to take the best and leave the rest...

Thanks for watching!
