Are You Voting? 

The majority of people don’t vote.
Most people don’t choose what their day will be.
Most people believe that externals control their lives.
Most people are caught in the cycle of victimization of guilt and blame.
Most people don’t want to be responsible for themselves and their choice.
Most people don’t want to choose because they don’t want to be wrong.
Most people vote against something rather than voting for what they really want.

What do you vote for in your workplace?
What do you vote for in your home?
What do you vote for in your relationships?
What do you vote for with your health?
What do you vote for when you shop?
What do you vote for with your words?

What are you voting against?
Are you aware that when you vote against something, you are feeding it with your energy?
Are you aware that your thoughts and words are unconscious votes?
Are you aware that how you live everyday is a vote?
Are you aware of how and where you spend your money and time is a vote?
Are you aware that your vote matters?
Are you aware that your vote counts?
Are you aware that every prayer and curse is a vote in the great pool of consciousness?
Are you aware that what we vote for today leaves a legacy for our kids tomorrow?
Are you aware that your anger and your forgiveness effect your world?
Are you aware?

I am voting:::::::::::::
I vote for peace.
I vote for possibility.

I vote for accepting multiple viewpoints.
I vote for changing my mind when I have made a mistake based on limited awareness.
I vote for being willing to listen to others as well as the God and Good within.
I vote for respect for all peoples, all faiths, all paths seeking to find a better way.
I vote for freedom to speak out and trust in each man’s desire to create a better life for himself and others.
I vote for education and opportunity, rather than condemnation and retribution.
I vote for the right of people to learn and grow through experiencing the consequences of their actions.

Loving all,
