In a season of GOODWILL, let’s try DEMOCRACY with the SANCTITY of the VOTE
This is a part one in a series…
In GOODWILL, let’s look at each other with eyes of appreciation and love as human beings. Who are we really? We all love our kids! Our close friends! We have faith in each other! We trust each other! We believe that if we all work with each other, we can assure our survival on this planet and assure our children that they will inherit a beautiful world with clean water, clean air, bountiful and healthy food from the earth with enough to go around for everyone!
What is the tough part of GOODWILL? The tough part is understanding that we share certain characteristics that belong to us as a species within the natural world. No other species share these characteristics as we do.
One is a conscience. Conscience is a SACRED gift which is shared by every other human being on the planet. Each conscience, while being unique, is, in essence, participating in the energy of the Life Force of the Universe in scientific terms and God in spiritual terms.
This means that every human being has you might even say, a genetic connection with every other human being. We are all kindred. We are all one global family.
Deep down we all love each other. And where there is love abounding, there is no room for hatred.
Hatred is secondary. Hatred is taught. Love is inherent.
Love can never be eradicated. To try to eradicate love is to try to kill the planet and everything on it. The Universe is God’s domain. The Life Force of the Universe is eternal and eternal means indestructible.
Human beings need to learn that and understand that on the pulses. The Universe will survive whether this planet supports human beings or whether it does not.
What is DEMOCRACY?
Government of the people BY the people and for the people really means that every person – all the people – not just some of the people but ALL of the people of voting age have a responsibility and a duty to VOTE for what they want.
If they do not vote for what they want how are they going to get it? And if the people they vote for do not do the duties that are needed and that they promised to do then they are not voted for ever again.
VOTING then is the price people pay for living in a democracy.
DEMOCRACY assures people that if they love one another and desire for each other what they desire for themselves they MUST VOTE.
VOTING is the PRICE PAID and the price has to be paid by ALL the people or DEMOCRACY does not work.
The next question is who do we consider ‘persons’. A person is a human being (of voting age) who possesses the greatest gift of CONSCIENCE.
Each person is gifted with one conscience. Each conscience then is the first intention of the vote.
The CONSCIENCE is SACRED because each unique conscience has its own connection to the Life Force of the Universe or its own connection to GOD.
