THE EFFECT OF SPIRITUAL LIGHT ON THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 

 

In the midst of darkness and in the midst of many wondering how things will turn out, a greater longing is being evoked, however silently, for purity, moral integrity, goodness, kindness, and the compassion that is an essential part of an awakened heart...

 

------------------------------

 

Spiritual light has to do with three central things, among others:

 

1) heightening the capacity for empathy and love and the desire to share love,

 

2) bringing into greater awareness a sense of truth and an increasing sense of what only masquerades as truth, and

 

3) enhancing the motivation of those holding greater light to adopt courses of action that are not self-seeking but that truly represent the welfare of a greater whole.

 

There are other qualities of character and personal expression that are brought forward by the infusion of greater light - qualities such as gentleness, kindness, a willingness to listen, a lack of ego, a desire to share, a desire to comfort those in need. These qualities, like notes on a musical scale, can be played in many different ways and with many different tonalities, corresponding to the inner nature of the one who carries them. Nevertheless, they share a common foundation which lies in the essential properties of spiritual light.

 

Within the electoral process, as light becomes more prominent and darkness recedes, the above effects of greater light begin to make themselves known more clearly. People begin increasingly to desire truth among those who claim to be its representatives; they desire integrity within those who claim to speak for a particular issue or point of view. Such integrity is based on the faithfulness of one who takes a position on an issue to the underlying values that that position represents. Integrity requires that one feel things and care about things deeply, not merely as a surface phenomenon. It also applies to the character of one who has an inner standard of moral rightness, a standard that must be followed for the sake of rightness itself, because conscience requires it.

 

The increasing inflow of light into the electoral process therefore affects both candidates and the general public. People begin to want more truth. They begin to want more kindness and integrity. They begin to want a public servant who truly represents the interests of the Whole. As this 'wanting' develops, a quality of listening is also enhanced, and what is listened for in candidates is what the heart tells the listener is real, more than what the mind says. Sometimes, this has been referred to as a 'gut reaction'. But often such a 'gut reaction' is simply a way of saying that there is no rational reason to feel something - it is one's heart that tells one that something is so.

 

Inspiration is also an effect of greater light. When people feel inspired, it is often because the light in a situation causes them to feel uplifted, more capable of making a difference, stronger in conscience, and stronger in a desire to serve. Outwardly, the source of inspiration may be attributed to a person and to a particular time in history, and it is true that these are factors, but inspiration and the capacity to feel inspired is also a function of light operating within consciousness which creates a yearning for an ideal - an ideal that, within the one so inspired, feels approachable. It feels as if it can be attained. And so inspiration carries one into action and into a state of feeling hopeful and optimistic about the possibility of realizing one's ideal.

 

This election year, including the campaign thus far, has shown itself to be filled with various shades of darkness with some episodes and rays of light.  However, in the midst of darkness and in the midst of many wondering how things will turn out, a greater longing is being evoked, however silently, for purity, moral integrity, goodness, kindness, and the compassion that is an essential part of an awakened heart.  Though these qualities may not be evident in public discourse, they are there beneath the surface, creating a readiness for change in the direction of light, even at a time when no vehicle for change seems imminently available.

 

For those faithful servants of the light, this is a time in which hope and trust must hold the heart in a stable place, believing that God's Divine Plan is not absent, that it is present, that beneath the specific challenges and obstructions of this time, a great wave of light is being carried forward to burst forth when the time is right.  The readiness of souls to receive that wave of light has something to do with the longing for it, for the heart that is in a state of longing, even unknown to the mind, will rush toward that which it has been longing for when it recognizes it.  Such recognition is not of the mind but of the heart, and many hearts are being prepared in this way at this time.

 

Let all who seek to serve the light be faithful, then, to the principle of light which is the wholeness of the One, and let the knowledge that there is nothing stronger than the power of light calm the dismay of those who are influenced by the outer appearance of things alone.
