Public policy is personal in that the political structures are built of the bricks of individuals with their inner world manifesting outwardly. The group shift of establishing new policy reveals inner flexibility (or the current inflexibility.) Personal responsibility is the underpinning of public authority. “Forgive yourself to have peace with yourself. Then forgive others,” advises Joy Ogwa, Nigerian UN representative and moderator of the UN High level forum on the Cultural of Peace Panel Discussion II in September. All citizens of the earth are responsible for the state of humanity including leaders and individuals, like Miriam Carey, the deceased young mother who allegedly tried to charge onto the White House property. As we excavate the ground of our current state, one spade at a time, we find hardened concepts, streams of beliefs and “gifts” of other people’s attitudes that drive our daily life condition. A peaceful society begins when we let go of the obstacles to both inner and outer balance. Political reconstruction begins with internal unearthing. Each person behooves conscious proactive searching through practices such as meditation , prayer or coaching. “Prayer impacts our spiritual practice at three levels: action, thought and attitude” reports the Spiritual Science Research Foundation. “Coaching helps people build a much broader perspective so they get to understand where someone else is coming from,” life coach Chrissy Carew, author of Insightful Player explains. Often times, daily life uncovers blocks to inner peace.

Presidents Cup 2013: Analyzing United States’ Triumph over International Team
Tiger clinches the winning Presidents Cup point for a third straight time. GC Tiger Tracker (@GCTigerTracker) October 6, 2013 Of course, the European Team has nearly matched that dominance in the Ryder Cup. The United States has won that event just once in its past six tries, including an epic collapse last year that saw the Europeans come from a 10-6 deficit on Sunday to pull out a win before a shell-shocked crowd at Medinah. Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports There would be no slacked jaws atMuirfield Village on Sunday. The United States came into Sunday’s action with the score feeling eerily similar to the 2012 Ryder Cup. The host country had a five-point lead after darkness halted the third day of action on Saturday and began the final day by extending its lead even further.Webb Simpson and BrandtSnedeker put a stake right to the heart of the Internationals by coming back to defeatLouisOosthuizenandCharlSchwartzel after trailing by three holes, right asBill Haas and Steve Stricker were recording another United States victory. Phil Mickelson andKeeganBradley only halved their match withJason Day and GrahamDeLaet, and Woods and Matt Kuchar lost for the first time all week, but the damage was critical nonetheless. The United States carried a six-match lead (14-8) at the end of foursome play. There were 12 singles matches to be finished over the course of the rest of the day. The Internationals couldn’t possibly put another scare into the United States, could they? Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports Well…almost. Ernie Els,Jason Day,Graham DeLaetand Adam Scott all ripped off wins in the early afternoon, keeping the International team’s comeback hopes alive.Hunter Mahan, Jason Dufner and Zach Johnson had each gotten wins, leaving the red, white and blue just one halving away from another triumph. But much like a year ago, the Internationals had pilfered momentum by mid-afternoon as the final matches of the day started revving up. The visiting side held leads or were within one stroke late in each of the final singles matches of the day, leaving Yahoo! Sports’ Shane Bacon to awaken (you see, that rhymes) the slumbering golf public by telling them to start following the action: Gregory Shamus/Getty Images This comeback would prove futile, however, thanks to a man whose performance in these events has often drawn criticism. Woods certainly didn’t play his best round on Sundayhis round translated to even par on Sundaybut he took advantage of Sterne’s mistakes. The world’s top-ranked player twice won holes where his opponent hit balls into the water (No.
