Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

There is something profoundly wrong in our society and you know it, you feel it, you see the results all around you, and deep down inside you know you have the power to fix it--but you have been led to believe you don't have that power.

I'm not talking about a generic and impersonal "you."  I'm talking about the actual you; the one reading these words.  History is full of examples of individuals being able to change the world, to change its course.  In reality, these individuals were not much different than you.  They had the same average daily concerns, whether it was family, work, making a living.

The thing that propelled them to become part of history was the power of their convictions.  And because of it they were able to inspire others--sometimes entire societies--to share those convictions.

Destiny, history, and duty, are once again primed for those who heed their calling: You.

Clear your mind, meditate, free yourself from the effects of mental pollution--propaganda.  As you do, your mind will focus, and you'll have greater and greater understanding of "the problem," and most importantly, the much needed solution(s).

Millions and millions of people know what's wrong.  What's needed is a resistance movement so vast, massive, well-organized and focused that when it acts it makes the oppressor tremble in the face of certain defeat.

And the thing is that you don't have to do anything extraordinary; you don't have to put yourself at risk.  All you have to do is "plug-in" to the right "grid" in whatever capacity you are willing and able to.

Once a large enough number of people, having free themselves from the effects of the massive corporate media propaganda, connect to "the grid," they will become so powerful that they will be able to remove the corrupt powers and influence from our social system.

Imagine "the grid" powered by people, channeling huge amounts of energy--energy which is discharged through a powerful laser beam, and used to destroy and depose the oligarchy, the nascent techno-fascist total information awareness surveillance police state.

It can be done.  You just have to believe it--because it's true.  Rid yourself of doubt; it has been manufactured and planted in your subconsciousness.  Start there... Then find others who have freed their minds, unite and take action, and you will witness true power beyond measure.  You have it!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

- Marianne Williamson
