I am here to....
Let me remind myself of this today. I am not here to make a name for myself, to make money, or to achieve the temporal and temporary things I think of as my goals. I am here to help. I am here to heal. I am here to bless. I am here to save the world. (A Course in Miracles)
Today is my country's general elections, I love my country I must admit having traveled around the world and lived outside of my country the feeling I get when I drive out of my airport is unparalleled, my soul leaps, I feel so peaceful and calm and I feel loved! When I go to other countries many times those same feelings are there, but I think it overflows when I hit the highway and see those hills surrounding me. My country isn't perfect but it has allowed me so many opportunities and I felt it my duty to get involved in making here a better place in my own small way, part of that is voting!
Today I go out and vote, a proud moment for me! Let me do my part to ensure that those coming behind me can say that this country has been good to them!
A Course in Miracles says that people may believe or the ego may say to you how can you be here to save the world, who do you think you are? But in fact it is the opposite, all of us are here to bless and heal and by doing this we save ourselves and by extension the world! Thinking otherwise is what is arrogant because we look to some "saviour" to come and that is one way of giving away our power!
Let's do this!
