I am not a political activist, I am a concerned individual, father, Psychospiritual teacher and therapist concerned about the deficit that we have now and that my children and grand children have to deal with, concerned that I and you are indirectly responsible if we keep the same president.
"Sometimes we look down on politics, criticizing it as dirty. However, if you look at it properly, politics in itself is not wrong. It is an instrument to serve human society. With good motivation—sincerity and honesty—politics becomes an instrument in the service of society. But when motivated by selfishness with hatred, anger, or jealousy, it becomes dirty." ~ Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso
We are an instrument! We can be a significant instrument of change. There are over 20 million Americans practicing a form of spirituality without specific affiliation to a religious group or organization in America, if we come together we can tip the scale in the right direction. And what direction that might be? In the direction of world peace, of love and kindness between humans, harmony and creativity utilizing all the talents available from all different cultures. With the intention to free all beings from the bondage of ignorance so they may be enthused by wisdom and compassion. We can do this all of us, together for the benefit of all living beings.
I have made a commitment. “As long as time and space remain, as long as other being suffer, until then I too will remain and work toward dispelling the miseries of the world."
The solution is not more war and violence, the solution is the process of awakening from within the connection to the heart and heart energies, realization and enlightenment. The solution is to feel that we are a part of the whole that we are in oneness with the world and its people that we can contribute and make a difference. Exercise freedom of choice, choosing Peace instead of war.
Lets become a group of 20 million actors instead of re-actors and energetically supporters of the decisions made in the White House. Let's become like the butterfly that can create change with the flapping of its wings, we can flap our wings and produce “the wind of change”.
Let's give Peace a chance!
