There is no material possession which can fill the hole that we feel inside. There is no knowledge that we can acquire. There is no social or religious group which can fill the emptiness.
Only love can fill it. Love is not something we need to look for. It is what we are. All that we have to do is surrender to it.
Let's surrender to love.

There is nothing that we can do to fall out of grace.
Mass murder, adultery, cruelty, child abuse. None of these things will alter our Divine Nature.
However, we can be unconscious of our Divinity. We can be unaware of It and believe that we are separate from all that is. We can cut ourselves off from who we really are.
God does not judge. When we do not judge, we are in harmony with our Divine Nature, which is peace, love and joy.
It is our most fundamental choice. We can live unconsciously, in accordance with our social programming and egoistic desires. Or we can surrender to our Divine Nature.
Let's choose life.

True change can only occur when we accept our current situation as it is. By resisting what is, such as by being frustrated or wishing it were otherwise, we only reinforce the current situation. We do not have to be complacent. Once we accept our situation, we can take steps to change it.
We attract situations consistent with our beliefs. If we wish that our situation was different than it is, we are acknowledging that we are unsatisfied with things as they are. The dissatisfaction perpetuates the condition that we want to change.
If we instead embrace our current situation with acceptance and gratitude, the Universe will provide positive things into our lives.
By being annoyed and frustrated while we are in traffic, we are resisting the flow of life. If we surrender our anger and accept our situation, we will be in harmony with life.
Let's surrender our frustration and embrace life.

Joy is our natural state.
We experience happiness, and we experience sadness and frustration. We are addicted to the highs and lows of the conditioned life. We are not in control of our lives.
We unconsciously bounce from elation to depression because we have no awareness of what we are doing. We constantly look for something outside of ourselves to save us from unsatisfying lives. We believe that our lives would be enhanced if we only had something that we want, a new job, an article of clothing, a lover. The hole that we feel cannot be filled from obtaining any object or knowledge.
We are afraid to behave differently than we have been conditioned to behave because there is safety in belonging to the group.
If we have the courage to surrender our judgments, thoughts and beliefs, we will discover that we will not be lost. On the contrary, we will find ourselves in the unmanifested freedom of the void. By giving up our stale beliefs, we come home to our natural state, which transcends the ups and downs of our physical existence.
Let's surrender to joy.

Historically, only every several hundreds of year would someone become conscious and self-realized and teach the world about divine presence. A Buddha, Jesus, or Gandhi would arise every once in a great while to teach others how to live contrary to the programmed existence of the day.
As we have learned the means to destroy the entire planet through nuclear weapons or environmental destruction, millions of people are awakening at the same time in this critical period.
This election presents a rare opportunity to have a leader of the most powerful country in the world, who is self-realized, transparent and does not live in accordance with the social programming of the day. This leader radiates peace and wisdom and is in harmony with the flow of life.
We can choose someone who offers us the comfort of the past, or we can choose a leader for a new future.
Let's wake up and vote.
