Loving love with all his heart
Love is a very important part of our lives right now. The environment is falling apart, we are at war too often, we don’t trade fairly in the developing world. The political right and left are polarized. The middle and lower classes are suffering.
Love is the substrate of all our emotions; we can count on it. Love reminds us of where our “things” come from, who made them. For example, many current oil products (oil is in everything) may be coming from Iraqi oil, as awful as that war was.
Love helps us find friends and community, find the things we need, and helps make life more fun. These are survival skills in this economy.
Love helps our intuition tremendously, to make better decisions and be in harmony. Love leads to forgiveness and wholesomeness, which is good for peace. Love helps you protect the vulnerable.
The miracle of love is to give of ourselves to those in need right in front of us as the need comes up. The favor will be returned.
These aspects of love are often personal, but they obviously apply to business and political office as well, and we affect the whole world.
Imagine Gov. Bolling, then write him in
We are in a terrible situation when we have a choice between “not-so-good” and “bad” (or is it “bad” and “worse”?) for our next governor.
In the past, we seemed to have governors who were upstanding and conscientious about their role and job as governor, regardless of their political party.
The current governor and Republican candidate for governor have demonstrated that they cannot be trusted, as both have received “gifts” or “contributions” from sources that wanted or needed something from them, whether spoken or not.
And, unfortunately, the Democratic candidate for governor does not emit warm, fuzzy feelings about his ability or integrity, either.
Unfortunately Libertarian Robert Sarvis is virtually an unknown — and appears to not have the political experience (in the old sense) that we would want a gubernatorial candidate to have.
I have an idea.
When we go to vote in November, let’s all write in Bill Bolling’s name. He has appeared to be upstanding and conscientious, and he has political experience. And he certainly seems to be preferable to either of the current candidates.
