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.
