In 15 min the Prime Time TV networks are going to start reviewing the status of our Presidential election in the United States.
I’ve been trying to get time to sit and write a blog for all of you today-ALL DAY and until now, haven’t had a minute.
That seems crazy, doesn’t it? 12 hours later, this is the time frame I found.
Why is it that we find ourselves running out of time so often? I try really hard to not over schedule and give myself time to rest and relax in my day. I believe in the act of doing nothing. Yet-look at whst happened today…
Actually, this week I read a great article about the Dutch approach to life, called ‘niksen’. They literally sit by their windows and watch the world outside. Not even trying to meditate. It’s the real act of being.
So, I think about what I was raised with…Vedanta. The act of being and accepting. There is an excellent book I was raised reading-‘I Am That’ by Nisargadatta Maharaj, that talks about the status of being. And not fighting what is.
Today, there is a huge need for acceptance of our process of exercising democracy.
The issue is that the democratic process has not been fair to us over the past four years. We have been sideswiped over and over again, as if in an abusive relationship.
All the rules changed, overnight. Like the pandemic. It all happened so quickly. We have worked so hard to have our voices heard. Creativity coming out of every possible brain cell to find ways to enact our abilities to achieve justice and fight for human rights.
I want to hold our world in my heart and give it love. I want to hold space for everyone who is anxious about what will happen after today. I know we are all walking down a dark tunnel and looking for the light. We can be that light. We can shine it out for all of us together. We have to. There is no other choice. Not if we want to attain peace and happiness as a nation. We have to have hope and believe in goodness. I see the shining sun in that tunnel. Yes, we may be entering a firestorm, but I’m prepared to bring the water and sand and clear the way. Will you join me?
