It’s election eve here in the United States, the day before the big election.
Many are nervous. Anxious. Afraid. Hopeful. Biting fingernails. Pacing.
Wanting their candidates to win.
Many are sorely afraid that we’ll wake up Wednesday is some hell-razed world if our candidates don’t win.
I have no idea what to write today.
I won’t try to convince you to vote for my guy–that’s between you and what your heart knows is true.
When the election results appear, I will probably either praise the heavens or sink into feelings of despair or hopelessness. Those who vote differently than me are maybe thinking the same.
Where does God, the Holy, stand in all these human politics?
I have no idea.
I want love to win. Decency. Compassion.
I hear those with differing viewpoints express similar wishes. It’s just that the others love and support different ideals. Everyone views compassion and decency in different ways.
Who is right and who is wrong? Our human minds can spout answers to this, but we can never read the Divine Mind.
The only prayer that comes up in relation to the presidential election especially–and it doesn’t even feel like a prayer–is this. Holy, do as you will. Do as you must. Help me to accept whatever happens. If my candidate wins, may I respond in a loving and mature way. If the other candidate wins, help me to find peace and acceptance. (OK, I may get snitty for awhile, maybe a good long while, but help me work my way back to equanimity, thank you, amen.) Either way, continue to guide me to work for what this Heart knows is true beyond what my beliefs think are true.
How are you all doing on election eve? Wrapping our country and all of us in love.
Day 16 of a seventy-five day journey to connect more deeply with God, Spirit, Holy, Love…to explore “What the Heart Knows” during the waning days of 2020.
