"I arise today, through the strength of Heaven; light of Sun, brilliance of Moon, splendor of Fire, speed of Lightning, swiftness of Wind, depth of Sea, stability of Earth, firmness of Rock." ~ The Deer’s Cry

In anticipation of our 1st Quarter 2021 Wrap Up with “Take Action 2021” as its theme, I want to revisit a classic Solari Report presentation that has evolved over the years: Coming Clean. To review the concepts behind Coming Clean, I asked friend and ally Jon Rappoport to join me because of his leadership at helping people develop their personal power.
The Coming Clean concept represents a series of actions or changes designed to help people clean the corruption out of their lives and build a free and inspired life—which would also bring about a wealthier, more human society. Every action we take, every thought we think, and every word we say are influential in shaping what happens in our lives, work, communities, and relationships.
I became aware of the importance of this a long time ago when I realized I was banking with the very bank that was engineering the mortgage bubble, which was going to leave millions of people homeless and bankrupt. I decided I needed to “come clean”—to stop financing and profiting from the very practices that were engineering such terrible harm. I am still on this journey today.
Jon and I will discuss different areas of opportunity where we can each grow. As with a buffet, you can choose to focus on what is important to or resonates with you, in a way that works for you. The goal is to help you create the life you aspire to live, or what we call a “free and inspired life.”
For Let’s Go to the Movies, I recommend Pretend It’s a City, the first of a seven-part conversation about New York between Fran Lebowitz and Martin Scorsese. Though I have many political disagreements with this brilliant author and public speaker, I appreciate that Lebowitz celebrates a deep and abiding love for cultures that nurture learning and free speech. Her powerful advocacy for these values has established her as an American icon and national treasure.
Our hero this week is Tanzania’s President, John Magufuli, who died on March 17, 2021. Celia Farber has written a celebration of his life and accomplishments for us.
