about their everyday lives were not considered in
any developments. We can now liken this to some
aspects of social media which can cause us to feel
disconnected from real and human relationships.
For the finance industry to be willing to
move to London, it was necessary to grant special
tax breaks to finance businesses and, of course, the
corresponding investment bankers. And so laws
were passed granting non-UK investment banks
and bankers considerable tax benefits. What are
the results? More jobs in the finance industry, but
also preferential treatment of a particular industry
and extremely soaring real estate prices. Ordinary
UK citizens are now forced to leave the city because
they no longer can afford the high cost of living,
choosing to live on the outskirts of the city and
to spend several hours commuting every day.
Space has to be created for an industry which not
necessarily works for the good of the people. But
nevertheless the population, including those with
very small incomes, must be ready to pay when
the next bank needs to be rescued. There are
many people in the UK who are third - or fourth-
generation welfare recipients. The politicians pay
for them, they are expected to be quiet and are
manipulated to cast their votes to the politicians'
delight. In the past we told this joke: some centuries
ago the bishop and the king got together and the
king said, "You bishop, you keep the people stupid
and I'll keep them poor". And this still seems to
hold true today. Perhaps today the media are the
bishop and the traditional politicians are the king.
They keep them poor and they keep them stupid.
I am so happy and grateful that I've met Johann
Ilgenfritz who experienced a tremendous mental
and physical challenge and who chose a new path
for his life. Traditional medical science was unable
to help him. Johann, through his own research
and testing, started on a new path for his life and
founded UK Health Radio.
This is a medium that doesn't tell us what
to believe; it's a medium that gives us a wide range
of information in order for us to take responsibility
for ourselves and our children, and it empowers
us to create what we want so that in the future
we cannot be manipulated and cannot be kept
poor and stupid anymore. This is why I created the
Winspiration movement, not to initiate a new faith,
but rather to disseminate my belief that there are
deep reservoirs of talent within each of us; that we
can create more and are far more able to implement
the WinWin spirit. I believe that free, authentic
people who are free of fear can make conscious and
sensible decisions. This is why it is so important to
encourage more people to step into their power. For
this reason, we will, on the 7th of May, conclude the
Winspiration event of the Winspiration Association
with a candle ceremony and Marianne Williamson's
`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, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of
God. Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is 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 other people permission to do the same. As
we are liberated from our own fear, our presence
automatically liberates others.'
The purpose of the 7th of May is to celebrate,
to spend the day together and to step into our
power. And to realize that it is possible and how it is
possible. If you are in London on the 7th of May you
can attend the Winspiraton event there. Here is the
.Johann Ilgenfritz and other inspiring speakers will
be speaking at this event. Or you can watch the
livestream of our main event in Los Angeles: www.

Johann Ilgenfritz' presentation. Be courageous!
Live your own life! Let your light shine!
