And with that headline I can almost guarantee I've got the attention of almost every government in the Western sphere of influence along with yours.  And the funny thing is, I really don't care whether I've got the attention of governments or not.  Only because, at least for today, I'm not talking about them or even a system of government.  At least, not government at the societal level.

The level of government I'm talking about today is internal.  It's the government inside your head.  Your mind, your brain.  I'm talking about the government of your life.  That's right.  Your brain, your mind, your heart and your soul.  Your feelings, your thoughts, your perceptions and the decisions you make.

After a couple of interesting discussions over the last few days, and one interesting forum post, something that I've been leaning toward for some time just sort of hit me in the face just in the last couple of hours.  I'm overthrowing the democracy of my life.  And, if you're up for it, I would suggest that you do it too.

As much as I like to stay informed about events that happen in the world, I'm taking full responsibility for how I preceive them and how I feel about them.  I decide my own truth.

My mind, my heart, my soul, is not a democracy.  It's a tyranny and I'm the tyrant.  My perception of the world and my feelings toward it are decided by a dictatorship, and I am the dictator.  I set the parametres of my own truth and I speak it courageously.  If you don't like it that's your choice.  It you take offence at that then it says more about you than it does about me.

Democracy has been overthrown.  In the kingdom of my mind, my heart and my soul, I rule as sole monarch with absolute power and authority and that power and authority is love.  I am the monarch of my mind, the emporer of my emotions.

As much as I like being informed of events in the world around me, nobody else gets a say, nobody gets a vote in how I think or feel.  I can be happy just because I choose to be.  I can get angry for whatever reason inspires me to be so.

My mind is no longer a democracy.  It should never have been.

And neither should yours.

It's time for us all to install a new regime within ourselves.

A regime of self-determination.

A regime of self-love, self-esteem, and self-confidence.

A regime of self-authenticity.

So kick all that negative crap out of your head and start filling it with what you need to fill it with in order to live your best life.
