Spiritual Lessons from the Presidential Election

Lately Iíve been checking in with many of my Spirit Junkie contemporaries about their experience of the forthcoming election. Though everyone has different opinions, one common theme that kept coming up was an overarching sense of apathy. I noticed many people so uncomfortable with the political climate that they were avoiding politics altogether. This scared me. When we become apathetic, itís a sure sign the ego has set in.

In this video, I share how to bring a spiritual mindset to politics. This is not a video on which side to chooseóitís a video on MAKING A CHOICE.

Oh and I must add, I have worked very hard for the Democrats from city to national levels. I've also given more money than I have given in my entire life. I am going to the precinct today to do calling. I have educated myself fully on all candidates on both sides. This is why for the first time in my life I am horrified, exploring immigration options, and beginning to contemplate suicide.

I am not apathetic either. I voted the first day and have actually ended friendships with those who either plan to vote for 3rd parties or the Republicans. I am looking into immigration and have begun to contemplate suicide. That's not apathy now is it? It's called horror as big as if I were watching innocents being walked into the German gas chambers during WWII. I take the changes in my insurance, my rights, my economic power, in the environment, care for the ld, social safety nets, in everything that makes life in this country worth living dead seriously. These people DO mean to end all of this and to legally end dissension. I cannot live in a country or on a planet where this is allowed. My rights and freedoms are this serious to me.

Excellent, inspiring video. People should start voting for what they believe and whatever party/candidate represents those issues and values. Voting against something/someone or voting for the lesser of two evils is never uplifting or satisfying. People should vote for what they believe is good.

I don't think it's a question of apathy....more like a brainer who to vote for.
