The Polarization of The Election
I had an interesting experience yesterday regarding the presidential election. I was thinking about the different candidates and all the nastiness going on with the parties. It made me feel so sad that we’re so polarized and I was thinking how the polarization will be following the election.
People are going to be so angry if their choice didn’t win. Half the country will be supportive of the president and the other half will bitch about how awful everything is for the next four years (like it is now).
As I sat thinking about the two candidates running for office, a calmness came over me and I felt lifted up above the polarization. In the vision, I saw that standing on the ground (symbolizing the material world) was limiting the over all view of the election with my ego, but when I was raised up, sitting on a tree branch (symbolizing the spiritual perspective), I could see the whole thing from a higher perspective and it felt very different.
What I heard and felt is that we need to take our ego out of this race and ask the Universe to guide us to vote for the best candidate for the job. Who can help our country heal and live up . That’s the leadership we need. Show us and the world what the human race is capable of.
When I was a young girl and Kennedy was President, I asked my Democratic dad what the difference was between a Democrat and a Republican and I’ve never forgotten his answer. (Some of you aren’t going to like it, but it was HIS opinion). My father (who later became a Republican) said Democrats care about others, Republicans care about themselves.
If this is true, wouldn’t it be nice if we could find someone right in the middle. Someone who looks out for others yet understands the importance of looking out for themselves at the same time.
I don’t know if we’re there yet. I just know that from now until election day, I’m going to watch this whole thing play out from the tree branch instead of clinging to this race from ego, which says MY guy has to win.
How about if we take “MY GUY” out of the mix and replace it with the “RIGHT GUY.” Doesn’t that feel so much better? More accepting and definitely more loving.
A couple of months ago I had a conversation (which I say loosely because I couldn’t get a word in edge wise) with someone from the party I don’t endorse who was so hateful and angry about his opposing party that I was physically sick to my stomach for a couple of hours after hanging up the phone. It was shocking to me that a person would have so much hatred towards the party they didn’t endorse and my fear is that we’re going to be seeing a lot of that in the months after the election. What do people do with all that anger if “THEIR GUY” doesn’t win? It’s a scary thought and I don’t want to go there.
When we have our ego invested in something, most of us don’t want to pray for Divine Guidance and Wisdom. We pray for OUR WAY to be done. But as with every challenge on this planet, it’s another opportunity to grow spiritually rather than reinforce our ego, so please join me up on the tree branch.
Look at all of this from a higher perspective and lets pray that the RIGHT GUY, WHO WILL LEAD THIS COUNTRY WITH INTEGRITY, HONESTY AND SOLUTIONS, be voted into office. It’s so much nicer to do this from a spiritual perspective rather than that doggone ego of ours.
