Instead of living our lives- enjoying the awe that surrounds and permeates us- we campaign for votes.
We try to BE this or that, DO this or that, APPEAR to be this or that
just to get a little check mark in the box-
over and over and over again.
We strive to please these people, to fit in with those people, to not offend all the people.
We have to have their vote.
We want them to accept us, but we don’t give them the truth on which they could cast a vote.
It’s just a campaign.
We politicians have lost something in our determination to be “elected”.
Votes are not relationships.
Votes do not have hearts or minds.
Votes can not love or be loved.
How different would humanity’s struggle be if we realized that these“votes” are nothing more than monopoly money... Counterfeit bills….
There is no election. There is only a relationship.
There is no first place prize. We can all win.
We’ve got to stop collecting and projecting votes.
We’ve got to start loving the rest of our body.
This ONE body.
