Let’s Save Our Home. Let’s Make Peace.

Election night 2020. Even  junk food would not sooth  me on this emotional occasion. But a whiskey sour? Now, that! would help me ignore how POTUS just spun his  impression of the presidential election. And he wasn’t even kind about it. Our system of counting the votes has just been antagonized. The gift of peacefulness and pride in this process -of every voter has been disrupted. And as frazzled as my nerves are, there’s not even a dude out there I am tempted to call or text @ 2am! Now. Enough about me.

We need for the dualism of this country to pass with the conclusion of this blessed election. At 1:55am CST the votes have not all been counted and his ridiculous assertion of victory has dirtied the airwaves. I’m thinking about  a beloved beautiful friend who’s obviously voted republican.. She said as much on her FB live a few hours ago. No matter our politics, she and I are individuals who exist as a whole. She’s not a less beautiful person in my eyes, even if she adores the president. I happen to detest him. But that shouldn’t destroy how any of us grow and survive and take care of each other on this planet. We’re in a pandemic and our crybaby POTUS is predictably self centered and thoughtless of the rest we were looking forward to. But he is also the least important among us at this seriously critical  moment that he has created. 

This world is flat for the time being. The air has been seeping out for four years. The outcome of this election will determine a lot of things: not just how fast the flat gets fixed, but that the hungry get fed, families are restored, prejudice is eradicated, dualism gets destroyed, and the b.s. of the Donald gets flushed out of our galaxy. 

This Lord, or something better. Amen.

Our very diverse home must come together again, no matter who wins. Put back the way of  The original and only Thought: Love. Where there is whole Love, is where Peace begins. 

 Anyone can teach you about love. I can make you good at it.

  1. Amen. Amen. Amen.

    This one made my heart hurt. <3

    Peace prayers for us all. This has to change. Somehow. Some day.

  2. Here on the other side of the ocean we're following the elections too. What a rollercoaster it is. Fingers crossed with you for the only acceptable outcome. I recognise the dualism unfortunately. In my peace-post this year I also talk about polarisation... But together we're strong and we will get through this!

  3. I was awake most of the night. It is a nail-biter, even for this Canadian. The airwaves reach - and affect - us all. I pray that rational, diplomatic and respectful discourse will return to the airwaves soon. Good luck to us all. My prayers are for social justice and equality for REAL, not just words.

  4. The visual of flatness and suffocation hit hard. I feel it too.
    But the description of Whole Love engulfed in oneness made my heart sing. You give me hope.
    Thank you.

    You peace globe is incredible!!!!!! Sharing widely. xxoo

  5. Thank you for this joyous hopeful post. Kathy Duffy Thomas

  6. Brave New World. When the ledge is crumbling below your feet...it is good to know there are those who would not blink and eye and hold your hand as you fall!

  7. even when the election is over, and the ballots have all been counted, when 'blue' can finally claim victory, our work will be far from over. things won't just go back to 'normal' - we need to deal with the fact that half our country just voted for fascism. that's not going away with a change in administration.
