Political season comes along and any discord within me seems to bubble up to the surface all aimed as hatred at the Republican Party and their candidates.
I have very eloquently and articulately insulted half the United States in the past month or two with snide comments upon Face book. So apparently I have used the heart for purposes of hate rather than love.
I believe it to be sinful to use your heart for hatred. Some of those people, at whom I aimed my political ire are people who have been constant here in my life. Constant. That means that they have been caring, loyal and never wavering. So, I have hurled insults and hatred into the faces of people who have cared about me. I am sorry for having done that. I have had a slight shift in thinking of late. Gratefully that shift in thinking came to me about 10 days ago, so that I could stop my political nonsense and use the heart for what it was meant for, a tool of love.
This is one of those times for me to refocus and move my focus one millionth of an inch to the right or left, up or down in order to see more clearly and to think differently. It is time for me to change or to shape shift as it is known in indigenous cultures. It is time to take control, time to take back my power, time to view the world through a loving lens instead of a hateful one. And believe it or not it is easier than you might think. One simply needs to be willing. Just one millionth of an inch … that is how long willingness is. Being willing to change is half the battle. Being willing is an act of one’s will. The change you desire to make will follow by the grace of spirit.
