Though you may feel alone in a world gone mad with violence and hate, do not stop speaking the Power of Truth, the Love in your Heart. As domestic terrorists wage their war with bombs and guns, I remember what I need to Stand For. I need to BE what I Stand For. And I need to not back down from what I Stand For. What I Stand For is what they are systematically trying to destroy.
In whatever way I can, I shall be the Power of the Love and Truth in my Heart, and Stand For that in all I that I am and all that I do do. I know I am not alone, even when it feels so. ~ George Herrick
We are standing on the precipice of a choice that will determine our own lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren for many years to come. Today I am holding up the Mirror of Life.
We only alleviate our guilt, shame and Karmic Justice as we Face OurSelves and what we have collectively created. Until we confront what separates us from OurSelves as Souls within, we cannot and will not come together. Failing to go deep means a Failure to Heal and so a Failure to Lead.
Those who say, “I don’t care about politics.” Think again. Your life as a human being and everyone and everything that you care about depends on your vote. We are ALL accountable. Our Power emerges from comprehending the deep Truth of Spirit that others prefer not to face or even name.
In 2012 before the presidential election, I wrote, “Who Can We Trust to Lead?” Today the words are more refined and deeper but the answer hasn’t changed: OurSelves. We Lead our Lives as we Trust WE are the Truth of Spirit, Sovereignty of Soul and FreedOM of Grace that is Love. While I outlined the societal-economic-political issues in 2012, I didn’t want to “offend” anyone so I avoided naming political parties and candidates. I’ve learned not to care who I offend and just say what needs to be said. Truth may be uncomfortable and inconvenient; it’s time that we wake up to the totality of our own creation that is our societal-economic-political system.
Just after the 2016 elections, I wrote, “Embracing the Unthinkable.” DJT’s election was required for us to come out of denial and acknowledge the deep structure under the surface. Observing our nation for the past two years, we can thank the DJT/DC agenda for exposing the underbelly of our entire societal-economic-political system as an intentional psychopathic, soulless syndicate:
Dishonest, deceitful, immoral, unethical, corrupt, cruel, manipulative, and exploitative processes and actions for the inequality, inequity, abuse of power, injustice, struggle, and suffering of the many to conserve the patriarchal status, privilege, entitlement, power, control, and wealth of the few. These are crimes against humanity.
When highly committed parties strongly believe [in] things that they cannot achieve democratically, they don’t give up on their beliefs — they give up on democracy. ~ David Frum
This contempt for the Constitution is destroying our democracy. Elected officials who openly support or who stand as silent enablers in endorsement of and complicity with this contempt are violating their Oaths of Office and their integrity as human beings.
Our local Republicans in a conspiracy of silence say that DC is not their concern and what happens in DC doesn’t matter here are also in violation of their Oaths. The silence of politicians who claim to be leaders in the face of corruption is the collapse of their integrity as human beings; it is intentional deception. Silence is how the patriarchal structures of domination enforce conformity and compliance, the loyalty that is followership. There are no leaders. Silence is willful ignorance and denial. Silence is the loss of our Sovereignty of Soul and FreedOM of Grace.
The collapse of individual integrity that fails to take responsibility and accountability for the whole has preceded every societal, economic and/or political collapse in human history. We are on the verge of one or more collapse.
Our vote is this choice: Be informed and take responsibility and accountability for your choice, its implications and consequences. We must demand that candidates demonstrate transparency and the integrity, the moral compass and courage required of Leaders.
Since we all co-create life, if WE look the other way and are silent about our elected officials’ support or silence, we ourselves are directly accountable and complicit in what is unfolding as well. Our “playing nice” is abdicating our responsibility as citizens and accountability as human beings. We violate the Constitution. We fail to respect ourselves. We fail the honesty-integrity-decency test as human beings. This is not Leading our Lives. This is cowardice that empowers tyrannical oppression. Leading Life means that we embody and enact moral courage.
We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. ~ Elie Wiesel
Collective Leadership is personal and societal conscience and consciousness in Service to our mutual well-being of Life as Love. Love is Truth of Spirit: The embodiment of Care, Understanding, Respect, Responsibility, and Accountability; Empathy enacted as Compassion. The public face of Love is Honesty, Morality, Ethics, and Integrity that Stands For our Constitutional Human Rights of Equality, Equity, Shared Power, Justice, Dignity, and Well-being for ALL. This is what it means BE an American and a true patriot.
Leading Life means we take this stand for the common and greatest good: All For One, One For All, ALL IS ONE, no matter the cost. Love always speaks Truth to the abuse of power. The failure to Love is the failure to Lead. Leading as Love means Liberated not liberal.
If you are a DJT/GOP follower, I ask that you think about the implications of what is happening. There is no middle ground. There are no ends justifying the means. No tax cuts. No deregulation. No scores of conservative judges can be worth destroying our democracy and your own loss of humanity. DJT/GOP cannot be taken a la carte. If you support this, you have to take the entire package that includes the hate, division and stoking violence. Your GOP vote validates, endorses and further enables this agenda. Have the self-respect and Self-Love to not give away your power and integrity as a human being to loyalty to a label. We are known by the company we keep. Lead Your Life.
Our darkness as a nation has been brought to Light. As human beings, it is not only our right but also our moral duty to take part in the shaping of our destiny, to expose and oppose obvious wrongs… Our origin as Love is our Destiny.
For both voters and candidates, this election isn’t about politics. This is about who you are and where you morally stand as citizen and a human being. What are we going to tell our grandchildren, “I didn’t think it mattered”?
YOUR vote Matters Greatly. By not voting you silence yourself in compliance and conformity with the patriarchal abuse of power. Together we send a message and eliminate the false power and narratives of those who devalue, traumatize and dehumanize our hearts and souls because they don’t care about their own. Your vote is a catalyst to create a Wave of Truth of Spirit that unleashes the Power of Love. WE created this by our choices or apathy. Only WE can rectify it. WE must take this first step.
Make YOUR vote count towards a thriving future for everyone in our nation and on this planet. Let us ride this Wave and Bless ourselves with Truth, Sovereignty, FreedOM, and Love.
Leading as Love is Service to Life. Leading is Love in Service to Life. Love Makes a Leader a Leader.
