11/7/12 - United We Stand

Win or lose, like it or not, there is no turning back.  From this day forward our lives are intertwined with our elected officials.  For this post, I am borrowing from those who have already put my thoughts to eloquent words... and pictures.  (The picture above was borrowed from my sweet friend, Robin.)

The website tagline for Unity International is: “Unity is a Positive Path for Spiritual Living."

Their Daily Word Magazine is: “a daily reminder of the Divine Light within you.”

This is what they posted on Facebook today:
Last night in the United States, new leaders were chosen for various positions throughout the nation. Whether you live in the U.S. or not, or whether your choice was victorious or not, which of your God-given qualities and attributes will you use to hold your nation in the spirit of love and oneness?
This next picture, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, was posted on FB by Austin Dog Zone. (Thank you Leslie, my wonderful friend, for posting.)  They asked folk to hit ‘like’ if they were ready to move past the political posts and comments.  I immediately ‘liked’ their picture and then borrowed it for this blog.  I am fickle if nothing else.  LOL.  In fact, I added the words to the picture.  So, okay, I guess I do have something to say.  Imagine that!  But I promise -- this is my last political hoopla -- for this election.

My friend, David, is the spiritual leader of a local Unity church.  Here is a partial share from his blog post today.  I encourage you to follow the link and read the rest.
We know that we are powerful creators, and that we attract ourselves to people, places and situations according to our thoughts and feelings.  When two or more come together to focus on something, whether it is what is wanted or what is not wanted, the creative energy is magnified.  When millions of people come together to focus on what is not wanted, the possibility of creating what is not wanted increases exponentially.  Our governments is us: those who hold elected positions reflect our consciousness.  If we want something different in Washington, we must first become something different wherever we are.

We must ask ourselves whether we want to manifest a governing body in America that reflects the energy of resistance and opposition, or a government that reflects the energy of our heartfelt desire for good.

And I close with a great song from 1970, United We Stand.  Yes, I know it is meant to be a love song, but listen to it with an open mind and think about, really think about, this great nation of ours and all who inhabit it.  I think it will give you a different perspective.  Enjoy!
