Is it possible that we actually now have a political leader who understands that the highest truth of life is our Oneness?
Yes, it is! The people of the United States chose that leader two days ago. It was a remarkable day for America and a remarkable day for the world.
Here, in the President-Elect’s own words, is the message of Conversations with God.
“This is our moment. This is our time — to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth: THAT OUT OF MANY, WE ARE ONE.
It has been predicted in the Conversations with God material that in the next 25 years the world will recreate itself anew, with a new politics and a new economics and a new spirituality – and that even world leaders will see the essential truth of our being…that we are all one; that there is no separation between us.
Now Barack Obama has put that into words in a political speech. And I see that the change predicted in CwG is coming faster than even I thought it might.
Yes, change is coming. And the we humans are about to find out, as Mr. Obama said Tuesday night, “that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we can’t, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can!
I was so impressed and so moved by John McCain’s concession speech Tuesday night. He was extraordinarily gracious, and urged in the strongest words that all Americans now unite and stand behind their new president – as he said he fully intends to do – to offer support and help as the country faces the difficult challenges ahead.
I wish that all those who are blogging with bitterness and anger and spiteful words could hear and heed the words of Sen. McCain himself. If John McCain, after the rough and tumble of this campaign, can move on and move ahead and join hands with Barack Obama in working toward a healing for America, surely the same can be done by those who supported him.
