In my best moments: “My goal is to turnaround the tenor of society” :)

That is my goal, on some level; to see if I can shift the mindset, somehow of our great nation and wonderful world, towards kindness, decency and inner strength. Inner strength being that notion that prosperity, must be married to purpose. I am all for, people earning lots of money and all of that; it just must be correlated to a positive purpose. My experience is so profound; that I actually believe I have a shot to change the national psyche in some ways. The main aim being to moves us away from this crassness and faulty notions of meanness being strength.

True strength, inner strength resides in a positive purpose, respect and teamwork with and for others. For me, it entails reaching within our psyche and causing a shift and a recognition that we can be successful, without being mean, indeed by being kind and considerate. It is ambitious, and yet that is where I reach for the stars and prospectively settle for the moon. I have encountered so much unfairness and false strength that I am inspired. Jon

A breakthough, seemingly years, maybe “decades” in the making: Firm Forgiveness

For years, I have struggled to discover the appropriate response to what could be considered “vile” behavior. the notion of finding the third way, goes back to Jesus, if not before, the middle path, actually was identified by Buddha as well. I like to refer to it as well, as the assertive path; in between aggressive and passive behavior. In this day and age, we are confronted, with vile, if not evil behavior in the emergence of extreme narcissistic and psychopathic behavior. I have long sought the appropriate response; as people with those actions can be debilitating, AND also they are clearly not well, and do not know much of what they are doing.

Today, in a last burst, I founded the concept of “firm forgiveness.” Firm meaning that it is our job as responsible leaders to pave a way towards a calm and peaceful society, filled with appropriate behavior, and holding those who act out accountable. Forgiving, in terms of the aim being education and setting appropriate limits and not pushing the full force of punishment on miscreant behavior.
