Voting with Wisdom for Progress

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.”

Inspiring person, Rosamond Carr
Not what I’d classify as a religious person, but spiritual, Rosamond Halsey Carr tells her story in her book, Land of a Thousand Hills: My Life in Rwanda. Published in 2001 and read by me last month, I recommend this book as a picture of woman’s self-realized independence, inner splendor, and ou

A star gymnast
Film, The Gabby Douglas Story (2014), captured many of the emotions that surely were experienced before medals were earned at the 2008 Olympics. Gabby’s family, already at a level of impoverishment, sacrificed for Gabby Douglas to continue training. And, although tempted, Gabby didn’t give up.
