I look over to a glass globe, setting on my desk, that is home to a little fairy child. She is a porcelain figurine that holds a pearl in her uplifted hands, as if she were offering love to the world. For me, this pearl represents the light of my soul. The light that is in each one of us, unconditional love.
When the light is dull, we are not ourselves. We are not embracing our authenticity. The purest of love and compassion that lies within this light is always there, yet we miss out on it so often in our lives on earth.
With the recent events of an election, a surprise outcome occurred with the electoral votes winning out to a harsh, now president elect, which has left most of us questioning our faith in human kind. “Have we lost our minds?” many people say.
And yet, those who were proponents of the candidate even questioned they did the right thing. “It actually happened,” I hear them say. This group seemed stunned that their votes actually counted, and, actually proved that they could vote in anyone they put at the helm. It could have been Daffy Duck and it would have been a true vote, and interestingly, still bring people to the dumbfounded reality that their vote counted for what they believed to be the perfect president.
On inauguration day, it will be a day of mourning for most Americans, and perhaps people in other countries. There are chosen administration members whose character we question and test against integrity, honesty, and human kindness. What human experiences do they bring before us in order to lead us?
Have any of them truly lived in poverty? Do they know what it is like to get up every 2 hours of the night in a drowsy stupor to turn their loved one who lies in bed dying, suffering of cancer? And further, do they know what it is like to be broken when no one else stepped forward in outreach because “no one” had the means or integrity to do so? As a result, someone died without any outreach.
A woman was forced to abort her child because of the humiliation, no means to provide, and no sense of how to even raise a child. Where did we fail this woman, as human beings? Where will the souls of our leaders reach out?
A child was left behind because no one cared that he could not read or that his mother was being beaten by his father every hour of the day. Where is our human outreach?
My fellow souls, this, this place that we have allowed to become neglected is not our leader’s doing. At some point, we must create a collective response as souls to care for our fellow human brothers and sisters. While our vote may count, there’s an even greater response at stake. Our choice to create internal love and allow that light to illuminate from us to our human families, as we assist them in small ways to lift them up.
What has transpired with our souls is not a mistake. It is a deep belief that our souls yearn to use their advanced knowledge to move back to what is important: Pure love
Our souls view that this new place of evolution is not a place of modern technology or streamlined modern society. Our souls have tired of the antics of our human bodies and long to be pure. But with purity, comes an earthly price of coming to grips with our own mentality. The ego must succumb to it’s own intelligence, ingrained beliefs and lessons from practicing less than love.
When our egos are challenged, we build more resistance, animosity, hatred, anger, retaliation. This has become evident in the recent turn of events. Both sides of the presidential race oozed the ugly tar-ridden muck that comes from ego. What leadership was demonstrated? The excuses that “the other” ran a dirty campaign has only deeply reflected back in what they proclaim.
Now, the American people feel more broken, more divided, and more despaired than the anxiety that lead up to the election. Our leaders, the souls who we entrusted, have yielded to the entrapment of their earthly ego and have forgotten who they really are.
While our leaders may have forgotten the light in their souls, as it grows dimmer, let us not forget our own light that beams within us.
Recall why we stand for the rights for humans to live and die with dignity; the grave significance of being vigilant in holding dear our natural habitat and how it affects everything on this planet; the deep sense of respect and honor for each human to practice their spirituality in their own heart;and, the right to live in authenticity with conviction and a voice to be heard.
For these truths I hold dear for our souls and an open space for love in the heart of America, that the collective soul of our country remain intact and pure in love as we navigate through a challenging journey that could change our lives forever. United we stand, divided we fall.
