Elect Your Energy

Did you know that the political process is a prime opportunity for spiritual advancement? If we truly understand the concept of oneness and unity, we know that those individuals from the opposite party are not our enemies, but our teachers. They challenge us to find our own voice and to look into our hearts for what we believe in. It is our choice as to whether we are speaking with courage, or whining a pathetic song. Do you think your dog or cat cares if you are liberal or conservative? Animals care about what’s in our hearts.

What most of us don’t understand is that our emotions surrounding the candidates and political process may be as important as our vote. Life is not what it seems. All that exists is made of energy, so it’s important to know what empowers us, and what weakens us. Every situation we face is an opportunity to evolve as a human being. As each of us chooses to stay positive, all creatures are positively affected.

The political process is designed to divide us, but if this happens, nobody wins. Can we face our suffering, work toward what we believe in, speak our truth and hold the space of non-judgment? I believe the answer is yes. We can come from completely opposite perspectives, yet have compassion and respect for one another. Do you see that you can work tirelessly to defeat candidates you believe will not benefit this country and hope they find joy and peace in their lives? This is where strength truly exists.

I wish more people utilized the right to vote in our country...there are people all around the world who can only WISH they had that type of say in appointing decision-makers and leaders.

Very kind thoughts. But I have found greed exists in both parties, not just one. Neither is the enemy and the question is not "can we?" but "will we?" Will we have faith and try to make a difference? Will we clear away the negative and vote accordingly? Will we trust everyone to act without any greed? This is a good approach with very kind thoughts and effective. Can we be certain that everyone will accept this premise and act as their better natures dictate? I can't really say.

Voting is so important! You're going to end up with some of the candidates so vote for those your prefer! Don't like any of them? Get together with some people you respect and change the system!

I love this article, so eloquently stating the facts. United we stand, divided we fall (we are more alike, really, than different) and our combined energy can accomplish great things. State your views, absorb others, research the candidates, their platform, past record of accomplishments and failures, then vote with purpose and see what happens.

This fits in so well with the other article "75 things you didn't know you could compost" - number 76 - politicians.
