It is difficult to not be discouraged by the antics of our politicians, and yet, they are a reflection of us. We allow it. We are influenced by it. The one who spends the most is often the one elected. Lies in political ads in CA are working.
Again, I think we need a complete turn-around in this country, a return to ethics and honoring the truth. Yes, we are of many viewpoints, but ultimately, we all know where truth lies; we do know the "right path," and we know care for our children and elders is key to balancing the whole. We do know when to step in and when to let go.
We have been unbalanced by junk food in the body and in the mind. It is time to return to the words of Emerson.
The greatest homage we can pay to truth is to use it.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
