Voting with Wisdom for Progress

posted by Cheryl Petersen

voting ppleNovember 5, Election Day, is around the corner. Most people I talk to know the value of voting and will vote.

Interestingly, as a freelance writer, I interview candidates, some of whom I’ve interviewed in the last election. And, I’ve noticed their platforms have changed.

Change is happening all the time. We don’t want to vote for someone because we did last time, unless their track record is maintaining progress.

Too often, human beings are like large pendulums, swinging from one side to another. When it comes to politicians, special interests groups can cause them to flounder in their job of public service. It’s not a reason to get angry at our government, but a demand that we as voters stay on top of the current situations and vote accordingly. We don’t have to become political fanatics but can take our time and devote it to the important offices or referendums.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “Improvement comes as mindsets improve. World history illustrates the might of Mind and shows human power to be proportionate to its embodiment of right thinking or spiritual clarity. Words and actions, breathing the omnipotence of divine justice and wisdom, are what powerfully break the grip of discrimination, human agendas, and diminishing returns. Mental fogginess doesn’t go down in blood, nor does the breath of freedom come from the weapons of humans. Love is the liberator.”

Human minds aren't judging us as much as we think
It’s important to feel good about our self. When we don’t feel good about our self, our level of self-consciousness is so weighty it takes all the fun out of life. The enormous scope of what it takes for a person to feel good about themselves is mind-boggling. I’ve met people who feel go
